Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Failed To Mount (Permission Denied)
Apr 29, 2011
I cant install Ubuntu 11.04 , on my Emachines laptop. On my Windows 7, When I boot up my USB/CD/card, it says: Ubuntu failed to mount dev/loop0 , something like that everytime, no matter what I do. And when I try wubi it says permission denied, .log filed saved. I've also mounted it using clonedrive, nothing works.
I have a Ubuntu box and just got a new hard drive. Rather than copy everything over from my old working Ubuntu install, I wanted to install Ubuntu from scratch and then rebuild the file contents.I have a large collection of music that I use on my mac (another computer) and like to keep sync'ed to the Ubuntu box. The following script used to work flawlessly:
I'm sooo exausted after two days of fooling with this. The problem: Apr 27 17:29:21 mxkasib dovecot: lda: Error: userdb lookup: connect(/var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb) failed: Permission denied (euid=8(mail) egid=12(mail) missing +w perm: /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb, euid is not dir owner)
Obviously, dovecot-lda, instanced by postfix, couldn't access the auth-userdb file because of permission. There are plenty of topics over the internet, the problem is really simple. Except for I've got all the permissions needed, or it seems to me so and I'm missing something. Here is some additional information:
I've given all the permissions I could imagine. It's even devil 666, and it still complains.
I have my DNS configure in 2 zones. 1 internal, and the other external. DNS is chrooted under /var/named/chroot amd has been operating without any problems for well over 2 years now. I have recently run cross the problem shown in the subject line. When I try to freeze the internal dehnert.com zone with the following command...rndc freeze dehnert.com IN internal
I get the error...
I have been running the command as root, and with iptables turned off, so there is no firewall to restricting access. (the system sits behind a firewall) I have been searching the forums all over, but I havent run across what might be causing me to have root denied access. If anyone has seen any problem like this, please point me in the right direction so I can iron this out.
I just set up a storage server with NFS sharing. Everything work fine but, when trying to mount the remote partition on my ws, this is the issue: /usr/sbin/start-statd: line 8: /sbin/rpc.statd: Permission denied /usr/sbin/start-statd: line 8: /sbin/rpc.statd: Success mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking. mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
I tried so to mount it locally : mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting localhost:/var/ftp/pub /mnt I don't think it depends because of the permiss of the directory, and anyway it's 1777.
When trying to mount samba share off of domain member server sysimage in Windows receive error "There are currently no logon servers available to service this logon request". When trying to mount.cifs from PDC to samba share on sysimage receive error "mount error(13): Permission denied".
PDC is ClearOS 5.2 named "dc0" Samba file server is CentOS 5.5 x86_64 named "sysimage" dc0 Samba version is samba - 3.5.5-1.1.v5.i386 sysimage Samba version is samba-3.0.33-3.29.el5_5.1.x86_64
dc0 is configured correctly to my knowledge, windows machines can join domain, domain users can log into windows machines, user directories are mapped properly, logon scripts run properly. sysimage ldap authentication is set up as shown in "Procedure 7.1.

I tried a 9.10 -> 10.04 upgrade that went fail. I can now get it to the login screen where it gives a hard freeze. Same with recovery. I can get to a command line, but not with networking so
So I finally said screw it, I'm going to doa fresh install. I downloaded and burned 10.04 at work. Not, it is giving me an installer error when I boot from it, but then it will load the desktop from the LiveCD.
All I really want to do is grab some data that I didn't get when I backed up by home directory, then I can go back and do a fresh install. I can even download a new 10.04 CD if I need to because the installation files are screwed up or something.
The problem is that some of the files have permissions on that that show as an 'X' on the icon and it won't let me copy them to my USB backup drive.
How can I copy the files marked with an 'X' that have this permission issue?
I just isntalled LAMP using tasksel and have a problem. Whenever I try to access a page (aside from phpmyadmin, that works well), I get this error... Code: Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0 Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required '/var/www/index.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in Unknown on line 0
I have restarted the computer, restarted apache, etc and still nothing. When I first installed, phpmyadmin was inaccessible, so I ran some command in terminal which apparently created a symlink between phpmyadmin in the user/share dir to the /var/www dir, and curious if this is the problem. I have no clue how to remove this symlink if this is the case, and have phpmyadmin working now due to install using sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin.
I had debian lenny running smoothly for a while, then I think the power went out and the computer didn't shutdown smoothly. The next time I started it up I ran into this error: Checking root file system.../etc/rcS.d/S10checkroot.sh: line 274: /sbin/logsave: Permission deniedfailed (code 126)This happens in single user mode as well. I've tried fscking all my partitions but it doesn't help. I've booted in bypassing the normal init and changed the permissions of /sbin/logsave to 777 and during boot I get a message of: The file system check corrected errors on the root partition but requested that the system be restarted. failed!Then the system just reboots automatically without letting me to anything.
Mount a Windows share where my user account has admin privileges. All permissions granted to the share on the windows pc side.Mount statement is as follows:sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=johndoe //winname/directoryname /mnt/tmp/Share mounts ok but does not let me create or write to an existing file. When I select Properties on the directory it says that permissions are unknown on the share looking at it from Ubuntu.
I have created a new file system (fuse) which works fine and is mounted in the local host. I want to be able to mount it from another host. I added it to /ect/exports: /mnt/ltfs *(rw,sync) And restarted nfs. Then from my client host I type:
mount -t nfs myHostName:/mnt/ltfs /mnt/data1
Where /mnt/ltfs is on my local host and /mnt/data1 is on the client host. Note that this is a "FUSE" file system so here is it's local "mount" output: ltfs on /mnt/ltfs type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,default_permissions,allow_other) Note thet this is of type "ltfs" but I am told that it should work like its a nfs. ltfs uses fuse under the covers.
I tried posting this before and I'm not sure what happened but I don't think it worked, so if it did please forgive the double post.am very very new to centOS and linux in general. I just want to setup a test web server that more closely mirrors our actual web server that is hosted by rackspace. I've installed centOS and tried to setup Apache, PHP and MySQL from a guide on the web using Yum. When I go to localhost in the web browser I'm able to see the default apache page. However when I create a php page it's just blank.When I look at the apache error logs I get this: PHP Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0
I've been searching alot on the internet and I know the issue is permission related, but I don't know how to fix it. I've seen some forum posts that say you need to use the chmod 775 command on the /var/www/html folder.Currently when I do ls -l /var/www/html it returns
-rw------- 1 root root 19 May 5 13:16 index.php -rw------- 1 root root 19 May 5 13:15 index.php~
I'm sure that this isn't correct but like I said I don't know much about how to set permissions or who the owner needs to be. I've done alot of searching and seen similar posts, but no one seems to explain it clearly.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my Windows Vista Home Premium machine. My specs far exceed the requirements to install, so I know there's no problem there.On installation I receive an error somewhat through that says something like:Quote:An error occured:Permission deniedFor more information, please see the log file:C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalTempwubi-9.10ubuntu1-rev160.logSo.... I go to that file, and the last line in it is:Quote:OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso'I did run Wubi Installer as an Administrator, and unblocked it giving it full privileges.It's really annoying because my download speed is 80kb/s so it takes about 3 hours to download. During that 3 hours I can't use my internet so I have to wait, and wait, and wait, and then boom.error. And wubi can't pick up where it left off, you have to uninstall to reinstall, which sucks tremendously.
Appear sometimes ago a message: E: Opening /etc/apt/sources.list - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied) I'm trying update my computers but I don't get.. Please.. All my docs, movies and pictures are in this PC... What Can I Do to fix?
I'm trying to install Amanda 3.2 on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) using Ubuntu 10.04 deb package. The installation was successful using the dpkg command. The problem crops up when configuring such amanda. When creating a user amandabackup using passwd amandabackup and then enter in it through su - amandabackup a permission denied problem comes up. When enter amserverconfig Dailyset 1 etc etc the server response with : amservingconfig: critical (fatal): Cannot create debug file "/var/log/amanda/server/amserverconfig.2010120307947.debug": Permission denied and continues The permissions are set to rw 1 amandabackup backup. I can't understand why it's telling me permission denied each time.
I have Ubuntu10.10 in my HP-laptop. I am trying to install ANSYS. There is an install file in setup. When I try to give install in terminal, being in the same directory it says, command not found. I tried ./INSTALL, it says "bash: ./INSTALL: Permission denied". I also tried from my home folder with full path for the install file, as the readme file says, "To install, enter the full path to the installation program on the media or to the downloaded installation files". I don't know what to do. I have these setup file in my external hard drive.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an Aspire laptop with Windows XP. I downloaded 10.04 and burned an ISO image. I boot Windows and open the ISO disk. I open the first choice which is to try Ubuntu prior to a complete installation. The installation starts and proceeds for a few minutes. Then it stops and displays a message 'Permission Denied' and a suggestion to check the installation log. The last few lines are:
I'm trying to configure my /usr/share/ettercap/etter.dns for dns spoofing with ettercap. but when I change the file and try to save it ubuntu says permision deneight Even when I try doing this from the terminal with sudo. It seems there is know way to change the file.
