Ubuntu :: Error Creating File System: Helper Exited With Exit Code 1: Cannot Open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only File System

May 2, 2010

I bought a new SD card which I intend to put some MP3s on - except that I can't write to it because it tells me the destination is Read Only. No-probs thinks I: I'll just reformat it.

"Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only file system"

Various chmod commands all result in Read-only file system. I tried umount then mount commands, but it couldn't find it to mount once I'd unmounted it using the same /media/ file path (I assume it's the only one).

Red Hat :: File System Corruption - Super Block Could Not Be Read Or Don't Describe A Clear Ext2 File System

Jul 12, 2010

My Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 with 6x partitions (/, /boot,/home, /usr, /var, /tmp) of 6.0 GB IDE Hardisk was working quite fine. I decided to create LVM on /home and /var partitions but due to some errors occured and I delete the /home partitions. That's why partition table altered. I then delete 4,5,and 6th partitions (/home, /var, /tmp) partitions and now try to create one by one but following error is coming:-

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A 64 Bit File System To Read 32 Bit File System Drives?

Feb 2, 2010

Have just assembled a new computer and thought I would install the 64 bit version of openSUSE 11.2 in a "Windows free zone". After a hiccup or two I have managed to get a system of sorts running but on trying to copy files from my old computer(via a memory stick) it tells me that Vfat is an unknown file system.On my old computer I am running 32 bit openSUSE 11.2 as a dual boot system with Windows XP and have no problems moving files between the two different file systems.Is it possible to get a 64 bit file system to read 32 bit file system drives and if so how do I do it?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Create Trashing Info File: Read-only File System

Jul 21, 2010

I plugged in my USb drive into my computer yesterday and tried to delete a folder. I was unable to do so and got the following message

So when I click on delete I get another error message:

At this point I can only click on Skip, Skip All, or Cancel.

I have not changed anything on the stick recently so I dont know what is causing the problem.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Second Drive Within File System?

Jun 9, 2011

I have two hard drives in my desktop, a 250GB and 500GB.

The first drive has the swap and / the second drive is just sat there having to be mounted before use. I have a half remembered thought that the second drive could be given a mount point within the file system. I have often partitioned drives so that / is septate to /home but not over different phisical drives. I wouldn't want the 500GB to be /home because a large chunk of the 250GB would not normally be used.

What I would like is to have the first drive set 20GB / the rest to /home. Then the 500GB set to /home/data so it would apear within the home directory or even better /home/user/data as I'm the only user of the computer.

Ubuntu :: General Error Mounting File System

Apr 13, 2011

I have a dual boot Xp and Ubuntu 10.10.

Recently I was downloading some upgrades in Ubuntu and unfortunately the power to the system got off.

Thereafter on booting it comes to the Grub menu and I'm able to select the OS from the list but if I choose Ubuntu it comes up with a message "General error mounting file system" and the terminal is activated. However, if XP is selected it boots with no issues.

/dev/sda6 is ubuntu installation
/dev/sda7 is swap partition

I went through lot of threads over the net and tried fsck, e2fsck and other variations of that command but at the end all I get the message as

it says sda6 is clean but for sda7 it says :

Superblock invalid trying backup blocks.... Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda7 at the end it suggests "u might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>"

refering some threads here I tried my luck with live CD and the command : sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda7

CentOS 5 :: Mounting Windows File System?

Jun 2, 2009

I have a dual boot system (CentOS and Windows XP Pro). The computer has 2 disks with the operating systems on sda. My data files are on the 2nd disk (sdb I think). I would like to be able to access the data files on sdb from CentOS. I tried issuing the Linux command:mount -oro -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/winbut CentOS tells me that ntfs is not a file system it recognizes. Even if I leave out the -t ntfs I get the same message. Any ideas on how I can get access to the Windows files while in the CentOS boot?. I got the idea for the above mount command from the book: Fedora 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible byCristopher Negus.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting File System Accessed By SSH Tunnel?

Apr 23, 2011

I really like being able to mount remote file systems using the Places > Connect to Server ... tool on Ubuntu 10.10 -- it makes transferring files a breeze.

Unfortunately, the only way to access a particular server at work (call it Server A), is by first SSHing into an intermediate (Server B), which is the only one with a public ip.

My process for transferring files from Server A is currently:

myComputer $ ssh serverB
serverB $ ssh serverA
serverA $ scp file to serverB; exit
serverB $ scp file to myComputer

Needless to say, this gets tiring, and multiple transfers are slow.

Is there a way to mount serverA directly on my computer (by tunnelling through serverB in the background)? Failing that, how about using sftp?

Debian :: Mounting An FTP Address To My File System Automatically During Boot?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm having difficulties mounting an FTP address to my file system automatically during boot. After a bit of research I have discovered a package called curlftpfs, I've installed this package using aptitude and I had no errors.

I've successfully mounted an FTP address manually using curlftpfs at the command line and proved to myself that this is working as it should...However, I can't get this to mount automatically and I am receiving the following error during boot when I try and mount it through /etc/fstab...

Error connecting to ftp: Failed to connect to (IP address of server): Network is unreachable

My research indicates this package should be able to do this.

I'm still a learner when it comes to Linux, but could this be because TCP/IP services are not started at the time of mounting the filesystems? I've tried a continuous ping at this computer whilst it is booting and I don't get a response until after /etc/fstab has been processed. If this is the reason, can I start them these processes earlier?

Another option would be to have a script/command run when the computer boots, but prior to MySQL loading. If this is possible, it would also satisfy my problems.

General :: Mounting An Ext3 File System Destroys Superblocks?

Jun 27, 2010

I have an image of an ext3 file system done with dd. I know that the file system is corrupted but I want to try to recover some files. Whatever I dd it again to the original partition or assign the dd image to a loop device, that's what happens:

- dumpe2fs -h gives me a valid ext3 superblock.

- as I try to mount the device read only, it fails with a bad magic number error.

- executing dumpe2fs -h again gives bad magic number error.

- trying debugfs or fsck with backup superblocks fails the same way.

For me it seems that in spite of mounting the device as read-only, mount command do something wrong with the superblock as before the mount the superblock is correct and it's there.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mounting Or Checking A Partial Ext4 File System?

Sep 3, 2011

If you have a contiguous partial piece of an ext4 file system (assuming it's perfectly clean), starting from the beginning of the partition, is there any way to check it, or to mount it to get the files whose parents, inodes and data are all completely contained inside?

Have (or maybe had) a very large 11TB RAID 6 array, filled with a single large ext4 partition. Something strange happened when a single drive failed and the array ended up failing 13 out of the 11 drives. I had trouble getting the array restarted, and got to the point where I exhausted all of the options I considered completely safe. I considered a few things that may have worked, but mdadm doesn't seem to have a definite "do not change anything" option. So I decided the only way to be absolutely safe would be to clone the disks before proceeding - then I realized how much time that would take and sent the drives off to a recovery service so they could image them and check it out.

Before doing so, I copied the first 2GB from each disk. I XORd the images from the working drives to reconstruct the data chunks that were on the failed disk, manually assembled the chunks, and am very confident that I have 22GB of "correct" data in a single file. The parity and Q syndromes all matched (with RAID 6 you can still check with only 1 missing device). I've learned the fine details of ext4 from [URL], and have looked at lots of raw data from the reconstructed partition, and it all looks good. The recovery company says that they're not finding many inodes, but I found a lot of them, exactly where they're supposed to be. I tried to mount and e2fsk, but both processes seem to be extremely unhappy that the device size doesn't match the size implied by the file system geometry.

I considered hacking the superblock to manually reduce the size, but I figure that wouldn't work because there would then be more group descriptor blocks than it would expect after the superblocks. I might try doing that and compensating by incrementing the "reserve block count" to compensate. Alternatively, if there is some way to make the file appear to be the expected size with nothing but zeroes after the end of the actual data, maybe I could mount it and not get any errors until I cause the kernel to read past the true end of the file.
