Ubuntu :: Mounted Partition Not Showing Up In Fstab
Jan 16, 2011
I'm totally new with linux and Ubuntu. I've just installed 10.10 yesterday and since then it's been an uphill struggle These forums has helped me out quite a bit already so I hope you can continue doing it with this problem I have.I got a single drive where the bootpartition is ext4 and the other "storage" partition is a remenant from a windows 7 installation I had, with NTFS. Decided I wanted to give Ubuntu a try! Now i've run into permission trouble though, mainly because I wanted to set up an FTP server (oh what a struggle THAT's been, I have some stories... ). I've done a "mount --bind" so that I can reach different resources directly from my chroot. It turns out though that the mounted partition isn't giving anyone except the owner (me) permission to see the resources. FTPing into the server gives the mount points but gives a 550 error and can't list anything inside of them.It works perfectly for me just running it at the prompt or using the mount points directly in the Ubuntu GUI though (since I'm the owner/admin/whatever).
My intended solution that I've found was that people with NTFS drives did a few magic tricks with the line of text in Fstab so they could access their NTFS drives. Problem for me is that my sda3 mount isn't showing up at all in fstab, even though fstab is supposed to (as far as I know) show all mounted devices on there. All the while, I have my sda3 totally accessible from /media/Storage/. Any pointers as to why this is?After I installed Ubuntu, I just mounted the sda3 with the Disk Utility from System->Administation and didn't think much of it afterwards until now.What's the best course of action here? remount the ntfs partiton using fstab? Convert the ntfs partition into an ext4? I have a lot of data on there I want to keep as well.
using suse 11.3 and kde 4.4.4 on the mounted fat32 partition I cannot change icons partition is mounted in fstab in this way:/dev/sda8/ /dati vfat user, users, gid=users, umask=0002, utf8=true, 0, 0.I can create files folders modify, move and save them on the partition but if I try to change the icon (in dolphin right click>properties>click on icon) of the /eros folder (or any other folder or link) system gives me this error:impossibile salvare le proprieta' , non hai accesso sufficiente per scrivere su /dati/eros/.directory tha in english is something like this: impossoble save properties, you havent enough permission access to write on /dati/eros/.directory this happen also as superuser I remember that with suse 11.0 or 10.3 I was able to change icons on fat32 partitions, now with 11.3 I cannot, there ought to be a way to do what I did with the previous version with this 11.3 brand new ad more advanced version shouldn't it?
My Laptop has Ubuntu 9.04 and I am using it for the past one year. I have four partitions. Gparted Screen Shot attached. /dev/sda5 was mounted as "Laptop 2" /dev/sda6 was mounted as "Laptop 3"
But from today morning I was not able to access any of the files from my hard disk. When I press the "Computer" Menu Item from the "Places" menu I could access all the files on my hard disk. It shows an error message attached with this thread. The system boots perfectly and work perfectly. "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" disappeared.
I searched the net and found ways to mount the Partitions with these following commands. sudo nano /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5) .....
Is there any way I could use "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" as my mount points as it was earlier.
I "upgraded" to Karmic and now my computer won't start. It shows the grub menu, I select the first Ubuntu option, and it shows the white logo. Underneath the logo these words appear, and it does nothing:Quote:One or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: /boot: waiting for UUID=338c820e..Press ESC to enter a recovery shell
I want to have a shared folder mounted on startup and I put the following in my fstab: Code: VMShare /media/VMShare vboxsf defaults,gid=1001,dmask=002 0 0 Where did 1001 corresponds to the virtual share group.
When I boot up the permissions are as follows(from ls -l): Code: drwxr-xr-x 1 root virtualshare 68 2010-10-27 15:45 VMShare/
So I'm curious why it's group permissions aren't the same as owner? In the fstab I put dmask=002 which should lead to rwxrwxr-x so basically full permissions for owner and group and read/execute for public. However thats not what I'm getting. Also once I get this working correctly am I going to have an issue if the virtualshare group isn't a users primary group? On some older unix servers I ran into this issue, hopefully it won't matter as long as the user in in the group.
ubuntu 9.10. Won't boot. Not a new installation, no new hardware. When I boot it up into 2.5.31-22-generic safemode it says: One or more of the mounts listed in etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: /home: wating for UUID...
Booted up w/ live CD, fsck says that /dev/sda3 is clean I have a 320 GB hard drive, 20 GB is the linux boot, 2 GB is swap, and the rest is /home. Palimpset Disk Utility can recognize the 20 & swap, but says the rest is unrecognized.
I'm trying to understand the last few hours... I installed slackware 13 yesterday in a multiboot system. On a seperate hdd from all the OS's I have my mp3 collection......I could play the mp3's as root after manually mounting sdb, but as a user I was unable to play them even though I chown'ed and chmod'ed 777 until I mounted sdb in fstab. The second drive was formatted ntfs by vista.
I thought anything mounted to /media would appear on the desktop?mount /dev/sdb1 /media/datadoes mount sdb1... files are available in Terminal. But there is no icon on the desktop. Why? What do I need to do to get a desktop icon?
For some strange reason, my media mounted in /media is not showing on my desktop on Lucid (10.04).I've been through gconf-editor to make sure the box is checked to show the mounted media in Nautilus. I also checked the options to show my Home folder and Computer icons on the desktop, but these do not show either.Tried ubuntu-tweaks to see if it would work, but no go there either.
I have two external hard drives mounted to my computer. They both work and are accessible. The one shows up on my desktop when it is mounted just fine. The other one does not. I went in to Configuration editor-apps-nautilus-desktop and checked the volumes_visible. That makes the other one not visible/visible but not the one I am having problems with. I read somewhere that devices must be named for it to show up and both devices are named, I even changed the name and that didn't do anything. Again, this device shows up in my computer but not on my desktop like all my other devices do. If anyone has any ideas on how I can get this external hard drive to show up.
Is there a program that will reread the partition table and update the kernel even if one of the unmodified partitions is mounted? I installed my system on one partition, then I added another with free space. Now I want to format the second partition, but the kernel doesn't know about it yet. I tried sfdisk -R /dev/sda, but it refuses while the root partition is mounted. Is there anyway I can avoid rebooting?
This is probably me looking but not seeing an option somewhere. I re-installed 10.10 over 10.04 by formatting the root partition but keeping the home partition the same, to save me a lot of work. (64 bit) However, now when I mount a CD, DVD or USB stick, they don't appear in Dophin's "Places" window. What have I missed please?
no idea what went wrong. computer was apparently shutdown halfway through installing major system updates. now booting into terminal(gnome?), and displaying error messages: one or more of the mounts listed in fstab cannot yet be mounted: (esc for recovery shell) /: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/[loooooong string of aplha-numeric(a/#) babble] /tmp: waiting for (null) swap: waiting for uuid-[another (diffrent-but-similar) string of A/# babble]~~user input: esc (the phrase: '^] pops up)
i'm over my head. i tried everything from chmod on 'lock' to gethost (which turned out to not be installed.) nothing is working yet.
I have a bit unusual request. There are three partitions on my hard drive. Two of them were assigned to mount points / and /home during system installation. The third one was left intact. After installation the first two partitions were automatically integrated into directory tree and there was a shortcut on the Nautilus sidebar for the third one. Then, I registered the third partition in /etc/fstab for automounting at /home/user/Data directory. For now it works fine, the volume is mounted on startup. But I still have the shortcut to this volume in Nautilus sidebar and icon on my Desktop. I am interested, if it is possible to disable showing of this items on Desktop and in Nautilus to make the third partition look like registered at system setup time.
I'm having a problem accessing files via nfs where an iso has been mounted through the loop device on the nfs server. Basically what I am attempting to do is access the 6 CentOS 5.2 ISO's via NFS from one of my client machines. The client is able to mount the share and see its sub directories leading up to the mount point of the ISO, but the contents of the mounted ISO image are simply not visible (on the client, they are visible on the server).
I just installed, partitioned and formatted a new 500GB hard drive (EXT3) on my system (10.10)What is the syntax I have to put in fstab in order to have the whole partition RW? It is currently read only.Drive name is sdb1, mounted as /500GB.
When I powered-up my computer today I received the message that the home partition listed in /etc/fstab cannot be mounted and to press ESC to go to the recovery shell.
My computer is dual-boot, with Windows on the first hard disk (sda) and Ubuntu 9.10 on the second hard disk (sdb); I am using Grub version 1.97 beta4. The home partition is thus on sdb2 and the file system is ext4.
The /etc/fstab file contains all the partitions and has not changed since last October. Also, when issuing the command fdisk l, all partitions are correctly displayed, including the home that cannot be mounted.
Finally, the command fsck /dev/sdb2 quickly returns the result that /dev/sdb2 is clean!
I am trying to actually wipe my entire hard drive and figured it may just be easiest to format the hard drive and deleting the partitions. So when I go to System => Administration => Disk Utility => Select the Hard Drive => Click Delete Partition => And I get the error shown in my screenshots. What would be my best way to delete this partition and remove ubuntu completely for the time being. And yes I am using the latest RC. 10.04. However I don't suspect this is a bug.
Sometimes Linux just make you want to throw the PC out of the window, and get a new one with WINDOWS on it...Having only just "got" the idea that there are a nunber of ways of issuing chmod, I now find that there is yet another when in the fstab file. It is an easygoogle to find out a workaround to make this drive RW, but doing that way one does not learn what is actually happening.how do I find out UID and GID? fmask and dmask, how do I find out what the current settings mean, and what they should be to allow RW access for various groups/users or for everyone?
Size Label Mount point File system 52 GB Multimedia /MM ntfs 52 GB Backup /ABackup ntfs 52 GB Extras /Extras ext4 27 GB root / ext4 60 GB home /home ext4
The problem is that I cannot access the /MM and contents. I tried Properties > Permissions and changed applied the changes to subfolders and contents too. Now I can access /MM but not the contents. All are marked with a lock logo.There are numerous folders/files.Changing the permissions individually is a hectic work.possible to do it in a command line/script?
I have two ext4 partitions: one with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bits and the other just for storing files.When I log on to Ubuntu, my second partition is not mounted. Shouldn't Ubuntu mount my second partition by default (since it recognizes it as ext4)?If it should, why is this happening to me?If it shouldn't, how can I get my second partition to be mounted at startup? Should it be by using the same solution provided by prayag_pjs (first reply)[URL]
