Ubuntu Installation :: Mount /dev On /root/dev Failed : No Such File Or Directory
Aug 8, 2010
Ubuntu(10.04) was working fine, then some program crashed or something, and I just switched off (power offed) the computer. When I restarted it, this sort of stuff comes:
mount /dev on /root/dev failed : No such file or directory
and some more lines like that, and then 'Busybox' starts with [intramfs].I booted Ubuntu from a pen drive and ran fsck on the main partition. I just pressed 'y' for a long time (it asks stuff like should it continue repairing or something), and then it was done. I restarted the pc and it booted normally - it looked as if everything was fine.I started google chrome, and it said it couldn't find a personal config file .. ok. Then I tried opening a folder - nothing happens. The system monitor doesn't open, and windows that do open eventually are completely blank. I restarted the pc (this time by doing the normal restart), and it gave me the same 'Busybox' thing.I did the same procedure again, and got the same results. (ubuntu boots, programs dont work, then I restart and the Busybox thing comes again)One More Thing : The Ubuntu installed on the hard disk had all the recent updates (including the latest linux kernel) while the pen drive thing was around 2 months old I think. So maybe that's the cause?
since running update manager on my daughters net running 10.04 netbook on boot up I get the following on the screen
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem doesn�t have /sbin/init.
Doesn't seem to matter which version, every time I try to install Software raid on an Ubuntu server system, it blows up with this error. Seems I've had trouble for several versions.
mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/f35415ee-4c14-4eb1-995f-f19fbcd760c7 on /root failed: Invalid argument mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
I've done it on Centos Fine, and followed the many different instructions I've seen for Ubuntu. The only luck I've had was with bios raid, but I would much rather let Mdadm handle things.
ubuntu-10.04.2-server-amd64 CD install AMD 1055T 6Core 4GB ram Asus M4A88TD-MUSB3
I install both as letting Ubuntu decide partitions for one drive, do the same for the other, and create a raid, and do them from scratch. No dice, same problem. I've tried that one as logical and as primary too. No difference. Something just doesn't like booting from a raid 1 Mirror. I've tried installing grub on both HDDs (sda1 + sdb1)I've tried several CDs, burned from several machines. Re-downloaded from Torrent and from the website. The DVD drives work since I purchased new DVD drives for both one workstation and the server. Things install fine under CentOS, software raid comes up.
Okay, so on occasion when I boot into ubuntu I get this error
[mount: mounting /dev /root/dev failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/sys failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/proc failed: no such file or directory]
I get the error when I open any of the kernel versions or any recovery mode. Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop is the only OS installed on the computer, which is a Lenovo S10-3. I can eventually get it to go away, sometimes by repeatedly unplugging it and plugging it back in, and sometimes I will boot into GParted, do nothing, then restart and it will work.I have found some solutions online, but all of them involve the error happening as a result of dual booting with Windows.I have made no major system changes recently, so I can't see anything like that being the problem.
This is the second time this has happened to me (after the first, i simply reinstalled but I would like to learn how to fix it). After a set of upgrades, when I restart, I get the following...
Killed mount: mounting /dev on/root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on/root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file ore directory Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= bootarg
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. There are a string of numbers before this but I figure what I copied is the key material needed to find a solution. I am pretty new to Ubuntu, so I have no idea what to do from here. I have backed everything up through Ubuntu One so it isn't a huge deal to reinstall but if this is going to continue to happen
I have iMac 2.4GHz with rEFIT installed. I installed Unity on one of the partition. Kernel is still 126.96.36.199. I am getting error message when I run the command sudo gedit /etc/x11/xorg.conf
The error message is
(gedit:2139): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.AC7YXV': No such file or directory

I have recently experienced a problem that occurred after an automatic update. After the update it said restart system. So I did and proceeded as normal. when after the reboot Firefox suddenly stopped working, crashed and upon clicking it again only a blank box appeared. Then my other apps followed and i soon couldn't do anything so i shut down my computer. Upon restart I got a black screen with tons of text and something around the lines of
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory
So I rebooted and pressed shift to open that grub thing and booted from an earlier kernel. This time it said checking HD for errors and after booted normally. Everything seemed fine but next day it did it again. Starting with Firefox crashing and then everything else. I again booted from a previous kernel and it worked but upon checking with uname -a it did not list the kernel i chose to boot from. So I decided to upgrade 10.04 to 10.10. This upgraded my kernel and deleted the old ones so i am hoping i am good now.
After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have had some problems booting my Ubuntu. It all started when restarting after the upgrade, and I got the error;
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= boot arg
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:188.8.131.52ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)(initramfs) After searching the Internet, I found a "solution". I just had to boot with a USB stick with the Ubuntu Rescue Remix (the normal Ubuntu USB won't boot either), and i wrote;
sudo fsck /dev/sdb5
Now I could start my Ubuntu again. So whats the problem? If I turn off my computer the normal way, there is no problem, but if I log off, put it into sleep mode, if something happens and I have to turn it off with the button it goes back to the first problem, and I have to reboot it with the USB stick and fix it all over again! If I don't have the USB stick with me, I probably wont be able to use my laptop!
I have dual boot system..i.e, windows XP and ubuntu 9.10(insatlled side by side). when i try to boot ubuntu, Im gettin sh:grub > prompt
I am getting something like this.. root mount file system failed.. ext2 ext3 ext4 ....... kernel panic message and hanged at kenelthreadhelpper+ what can i do.. I cant reinstall ubuntu again.. Because I have installed nany application there..
I can not use nfs from F10 client to F12 server. nfs mount on F10 to F12 times out anf nfs4 mount gives "mount.nfs4: mounting localhost:/home failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory" I have tried to close firewall and set selinux to permissive mode on both client and server with same result. Samba works fine. On server [root@flokipal ~]# mount -t nfs4 localhost:/home /media/tonlist mount.nfs4: mounting localhost:/home failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory
[root@flokipal ~]# mount -t nfs localhost:/home /media/tonlist [root@flokipal ~]#
I wanted to try out the new Ubuntu 10.04, but since I don't have any CD's available I thought I could use my 9.10 CD and upgrade from it.
1. Installed 9.10 on the entire disk. 2. Went to update manager(?) and clicked the button to upgrade to 10.04 3. It successfully downloaded all the files. 4. When installing the new files it suddenly said that it failed to update, and it stopped. Then I went to do a hardware test, but none of the menus were working.
I had to do a manual shutdown, and reboot the computer. This time I was met with an error "Unable to mount root fs".
I figured the upgrade was the problem, so I reinstalled 9.10 to try without upgrading. 1. Reinstalled 9.10 on the entire disk. 2. Went to update manager(?) and started the normal update for 9.10 so the system would be up-to-date. 3. Same thing happened now, it fails to update and it makes my computer useless.
I've already checked my hardware for errors, can't find any. I've checked the CD for errors, can't find any. I had 9.04 on the same computer a few weeks ago, and it was rock-solid. Worked like a dream. I'm using Win7 now though.
I decided to try to do the 3 distro upgrade stretch from 8.04 to 10.04 this weekend and now I am hung on 9.04 to 9.10.. The upgrade went swimmingly, but I hit a wall upon boot. When I try to load kernel 2.6.31-22 I am greeted with the following error:
[ 20.879845] ACPI: I/O resource vt596_smbus [0x400-0$407] conflicts with ACPI region SMOV [0x400-0x406] Mount of root filesystem failed.
A maintenance shell will now be started ... After doing some digging I found this thread which appears to be similar in the inability to mount the filesystem. However, it does not mention the ACPI error. I tried everything in that thread; verifying device ID's, editing fstab options; running a filesystem check, and flipping the UTC option in the rcS file but nothing worked. The OP of that thread eventually did a fresh install of Karmic; but I would rather not have to go that far.
I've upgraded my squeeze box to linux kernel 2.6.32-5. But it shows mounting "here is the uuid of / " on /root failed: Device or resource busy while booting.Here is the menuentry of linux kernel 2.6.32-5.

I just installed Maya 2009 on Fedora 13.It seemed to run the RPM install fine, but when I go to Applications > Graphics > MayaI an error:Could not launch 'Autodesk Maya 2009 (64-bit) Failed to execute child process "/usr/autodesk/aya/bin/maya"(no such file or directory)I browsed to this location in the file browser and there definately is a file called maya in "bin"
I am pondering a reinstall of a freshly installed Ubuntu; I may or may not take that drastic step.However, I have partitioned my drive to include a 16-GB partition labelled "Ubuntu-tmp", in my case /dev/sda7, with the intent of mounting that file system as /tmp. Depending on how I decide to go about the reinstall I need an answer to these questions:If I reinstall: Is it possible to designate /dev/sda7 to mount as /tmp during the installation process?If I cannot designate the mounts at install time, or if I opt not to reinstall: I can't really empty the /tmp directory in the root in order to properly use it as a mount point for [the file system on] /dev/sda7; many files in there are still in use by running processes. So how can I clear the /-mounted /tmp directory and assign it to /dev/sda7?
I have attached a screen shot of gparted to illustrate my layout scheme.The gparted manual suggests I select the partition, click [Partition]->[Mount]. Of course, my gparted drops a menu with [Mount] is absent and an [Unmount] option is greyed out.This raises a question of how I am going to mount /users and /var in their intended file systems (/dev/sda8 and /dev/sda9, respectively), because the [partition] menu looks the same for these partitions as well.

I have an Acer 9410Z laptop that I believe is running the Maverick Meerkat version of Ubuntu Studio. I just did an upgrade using Synaptic. I get to GRUB, but When I try to boot 2.6.35-22 (or the recovery mode or a real time kernel I had installed )I get the error:
INIT: Failed to spawn ureadahead main process. No such file or directory I then get the Ubuntu Studio splash screen for 2 seconds but then instead of a normal boot I end up in the terminal.
I grabbed the new lubuntu 10.10 from [URL] but it turns out I'm having a problem installing it on my netbook (Asus Eee PC 1015PED). While installing, this error pops up:
The attempt to mount a file system with type ext4 in SCSI2 (0,0,0), partition #1 (sda) at / failed.You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu.I'm installing via USB and have selected the option to erase everything and use the full HDD.
I have a dual booting newly installed 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 on my machine. It was all fine until today. Now when I boot into Ubuntu, I see the error Failed to mount root filesystem. I cant remember any significant changes during the last session. One thing I remember is I upgraded the system using the update manager which asked me to choose an option for grub boot loader. I opted for its upgradation. After the upgrade, I was able to work with Ubuntu for a few more sessions. Windows XP works very fine.I checked other threads which suggested running fsck, but it did not help. fsck does not report any errors.
A friend of mine upgraded his pc to ubuntu 10.04. Sadly enough we ran into issues with his graphics card, which apparently doesnt work well with lucid. We decided to downgrade to 9.10. I did this by installing over the old partition and chose to import the settings from the old account.The problems started when the pc booted for the first time:The list of kernels in grub2 was the one from 10.04.Somehow grub2 from the old installation seems to be still around and messes everything up. Any ideas how I could fix this?
My Fedora 12 System was failed when booting.The message like that : mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/my_vol missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some case, useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so Can't mount at root filesystem. [drm: drm_mode_rmfb ] *ERROR* tried to remove a fb that we didn't own. Boot has failed, sleep forever. I guess something wrong with my hard disk, so the bootloader can't recognize the filesystem type.
