Ubuntu :: Multiple Partitions Shown In Nautilus?

Jan 4, 2010

For two of my partitions on sda (they are NTFS parts) I have configured them via the NTFS Configuration Tool to mount at boot. This is OK - I can see them in Places, Computer; they are listed together with the mounted icon to the right. However, there is also two other partitions listed - that are not shown as mounted - with the same label name. (I can also see these duplicate parts listed if I click on Places ad look down at the various devices attached under Computer). If I right click on these unmounted parts I see there is a greyed out option to Remove. How do I remove these duplicate partitions?

Ubuntu :: Logical Partition Not Shown In Nautilus

Feb 14, 2010

I have a logical partition formatted with NTFS and created (from Windows) after Ubuntu 9.10 was installed. It's name is "Volume". Now, it doesn't show under places nor nautilus. I think it is shown when using the Live CD again. It is shown in Volume Manager. How can I have it show up next to my other partitions?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus - Two Folders With Same Name (One Hidden Other Shown)

Jun 5, 2010

Actually, Nautilus allows two instances of the same folder, or two folders with the same name in the same directory, as long as one is hidden (with the .prefix) and the other is shown. It happens that, if during a download (through a download manager or a torrent client) the user adds the . prefix to the download folder, another will be automatically created by the application (let's say Transmission for example) and the download would continue to that new folder. If any renaming happens (or if the original folder is restored), the download will resume to the folder with whichever initial name. Eventually, the user will be left with an unusable/corrupt complete download.

Ubuntu :: Lvm Volume Shown In Test Disk But Not The Partitions

Jan 29, 2011

I have 2 hdd

lvm was created in 2nd partition type primary.

yesterday i had deleted all partitions in the first drive of windows only from ubuntu disk utility. today i went to install windows and the partition space was shown as [139gb] , i thought this is the first hard disk. But my guess is windows must have taken the free space on my home partition inside lvm[ 150gb which roughly translates to 139 GiB.

SO first i deleted the whole partition of 139gb which was shown different in unallocated space as a slight less figure and then i created a 30gb partition on that space shown and went ahead, windows post creation again showed 139gb and then gave a message on next window that partition does not contain data to install windows xp. Strange i thought, this becoz next screen before the format partition as ntfs is all to be shown. Then i just felt something fishy and rebooted and then ubuntu of 2nd hdd is not booting.

I ran test disk from gparted live cd and i find td recovered the boot drive but not the 2nd primary partition in which lvm [root,home,swap] is created. It shows the lvm as 279gb. But not the 3 logical partitions inside it.

Now when i boot post the grub menu i get the following message

This disk contains all my data and the first drive was also wiped out full. test disk is not able to get anything on that windows drive.........

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Vista - No Hard Drives Or Partitions Are Shown

Feb 9, 2009

i'm tying to dual boot Vista64 (already installed) and Fedora 10 x86_64. I am running a Dell XPS 410 running 2 sata hard drives raid 0 (ICH8DH). I started the process by shrinking my C drive on disk0 leaving 64.45GB of unallocated space. Next I rebooted into Fedora install DVD and when i get to blue graphical install screen i get message asking if my drive is GPT and if it is it may be corrupted. I click NO, and it comes up with a message telling me i have to initialize my drive if i want to use it ( have to click NO twice) and if i do it i will lose all my data.

i can click no and keep proceding through the install until i get to the partition setup screen. No hard drives or partitions are shown. I've tried googling the problem and get bits of pieces of information scattered in different parts but nothing conclusive to my problem i think. As far as my background of knowledge goes, I'm new to the linux community but give me a thorough guide and i'll do fine (i hope). I've been using fedora on a separate laptop for 2 days now .

Ubuntu :: Hide Partitions/Drives From Nautilus (side Panel)?

May 29, 2010

I have 2 drives formatted NTFS, which I'm mounting with /etc/fstab to ~/Movies/ and ~/Music/ and an EXT4 partition on my primary drive for games, mounted to ~/Roms/ and I would like for these drives to NOT show up in the side panel of nautilus.

I've been doing some looking around, and what I've found so far is that supposedly if you mount a partition/drive somewhere besides /media/ nautilus will ignore it. I'm finding this not to be the case, and it's driving me bonkers. here's my fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s 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).

Ubuntu :: Network Icon Is Not Shown Properly While Me Menu Is Being Shown Twice

Sep 26, 2010

I just reinstalled Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and an old problem has come back. For some reason I couldn't fix it even in my previous installation. The problem is the top gnome panel. See the photo below: As you can see, the network icon is not shown properly while the Me menu is being shown twice. I can't even restart or log out or shut down at this situation without pressing the keystroke to turn the power off.

General :: Unmounted (and Unwanted) Partitions Show Up In Nautilus

Jul 15, 2011

I have been setting up my laptop as a dual boot with Win7 (yuckkk!) and Ubunutu 11.04. My HP Pavilion dm4 came with 4 primary partitions used by Windows! (Again, yuckkk!) I got rid of Windows_recover partition (I don't remember the exact name) converted that primary partition to an extended partition and then installed Ubuntu in virtual partitions. All that works.What I don't like is that the partition HP_TOOLS shows up in Nautilus, and if you click on it, it self-mounts and makes that partition accessible.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multiple Grubs And Partitions Of Same HDD?

Mar 3, 2011

I searched through with several different terms and couldn't find it.I recently got a DELL Inspiron B120 laptop that had Windows 2000 on it as its sole OS. I'm refurbishing it to some degree. It needs a new LCD Screen and a Wireless Lan card; but that's not important here, I don't think.I'm running it headless and connecting to my desktop through X11VNC.

I decided to put the live disk Ubuntu 10.04 on it and see if I liked it. I decided yes, and went for the install.
Before it installed, it asked me how I wanted to partition the drive. It showed me examples, and I decided to keep the Windows 2000 on there, along with the little DELL diagnostics, etc. part and divide the 40GB drive up into pieces: 18GB for Win2k, 4GB for Dell, and 18GB for Ubuntu 10.04.Once installed I wanted to change the timeout for the GRUB to longer than 3 seconds before it boots the top choice (which is Ubuntu).

I noticed when I could catch it; that it was titled GNU Grub 1.98. I'm not really familiar with multiple GRUBs, so I didn't think about it. Then after a few days, I started getting updates for Ubuntu. The first one was the Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-28-generic from the original kernel 2.6.32-24-generic. Then it went to kernel 2.6.32-29-generic, and yesterday to kernel 2.6.32-30-generic.

That's fine; but the GRUB list is still saying 2.6.32-28-generic as the most recent. Also, the last update asked me if I wanted to create a menu.lst file.I thought I had a GRUB.cfg file that had the list of boots...But I answered yes anyway, and installed the GRUB menu.lst. I changed the timeout to 15 seconds in menu.lst; but the list is still showing as the GNU Grub 1.98 and the list of boots is still topped with 2.6.32-28-generic.I have no idea what's going on now; nor how to update it so that I use the GRUB with the menu.lst and delete or suspend the GNU Grub 1.98.

Ubuntu Networking :: Login Multiple Ftp Accounts On Same Its Server Using Nautilus?

Jun 5, 2010

I googled a lot but I didn't find anything about this. I have multiple accounts on the same ftp server (the server is not mine I don't access its configuration)

If I write ftp://hostname on the location bar it lets me login, but only allow me to be in only one account at a time. Putting ftp://hostname on the location again just opens the account I logged into and I'm unable to login to the other account to move files between them conveniently.

Is it possible to log into multiple accounts on the same server?

Software :: Mounting Images With Multiple Partitions?

Jul 12, 2010

Say I have an image of a file system. I made it with dd by copying it off my USB stick. e.g. "sudo dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=./image.ext2" I can mount said image with the command: "sudo mount -t ext2 -o loop ./image.ext2 /mnt/" Now, say instead of copying a partition with dd, I copy a whole drive. e.g. "sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=./image.img". sdb had 2 partitions on it. How can I mount those separate partitions without copying that image back onto the USB drive?

Software :: Using Rsync For Copying Multiple Partitions?

Sep 1, 2009

Regularly I find myself cloning a machine using rsync. I find it understandable, reliable and fast, faster than dd, and I don't have to worry about different partition sizes etc. However, usually I partition my hard disk in a number of partitions:


When I start with a new, empty machine, I start up with a USB stick or live CD, and my new, empty hard disk becomes /dev/sdb. After creating the 4 partitions I have /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdb2... etc. My root directory is on the disk I used for booting, usually /dev/sda. So, in order to access my newly created partitions, I mount them on the /mnt/directory of my root:

mounted now later
/mnt/sdb1 /
/mnt/sdb2 /home
/mnt/sdb3 /usr
/mnt/sdb4 /var

In other words, I mount now /dev/sdb1 on /mnt/sdb1, while after copying /dev/sdb1 will become my root directory, /dev/sdb2 become my /home directory, etc. When I start the resync process to copy the image from a remote machine, I have to copy all 4 partitions separately. First the root directory, excluding /home, /usr, /var, then /home, then /usr, /var, like this:

action 1:
rsync --exclude='/home' --exclude='/var' --exclude='/usr' my.remote.machine:/ /dev/sdb1/

action 2:
rsync my.remote.machine:/home /dev/sdb2/

action 3:
rsync my.remote.machine:/usr /dev/sdb3/

action 4:
rsync my.remote.machine:/var /dev/sdb4/

That is a lot of typing and waiting. Sometimes I have a different partition scheme so it is not really feasible to write a script to use always. Now the Question: is there a smarter way of mounting the newly formatted disk (/dev/sdb1, /dev/sdb2... etc) in my root tree so I can perform the rsync copy in just one time, without all the excludes, but assuring that the correct source partitions end up on the correct destination partitions?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid - Multiple Active Partitions Error At Startup?

I created a customized Lucid image and installed on my computer which has 1 hard drive (/dev/sda)When I booted up .. it gave me an error indicating "Multiple active partitions" ... and did not boot up ...

I used my live CD and run as live session to check on the hard drive, When I issued the command fdisk -l on an terminal , the out put indicated that only /dev/sda1 is bootable, and other /dev/sda* were not bootable ...

I am not sure why I got the "Multiple active partitions" message at boot up time ..

Ubuntu Installation :: Cloning Entire Drive With Multiple Partitions In One Step?

Aug 6, 2010

I have used GParted several times but I only know how to clone a single partition. I am looking for a way to clone and entire drive that has several partitions, along withthe MRB, unpartitioned space and everything else in one step. I have a 500 GB drive that is going out and I want to clone it to a 1 TB drive so I don't have to reinstall 3 different OSs and fix the GRUB. One of the other OSs is on anther drive so I'm not sure that it would work even if I can clone everything exactly. I'm not sure if the drive that is failing is the one with the MBR on it or not. how to do this in GParted or know another good program I can run from a live CD to do this?

Can I create multiple partitions to install several other OS's on?

Debian :: Mount The Multiple Partitions Of A Pendrive - Flashcard?

Dec 27, 2009

I did this with :


I made two partitions as below


3. Partition Compact Flash

Make two partitions on CF (use linux fdisk or anything else that is able to make linux filesystem)

1. at least 8MB FAT

2. rest ext2 (recommended) or ext3 - at least 50MB

Copy vmlinuz, initrd, linexec and params.txt to FAT partition.
Uncompress rootfs.tar.bz2 to ext2 partition. (command details at ref. [1])

But :

fdisk -l says only one /dev/sdd1

not sdd1a
not sdd1a

How can I mount those 2 created partitions, since they are hidden under /dev/sdd1 ?

Is it a bug of the kernel?

Debian :: Setting Up A RAID Array With Multiple Partitions

May 23, 2011

I need to set up a RAID 1 array on Squeeze. I have 3 partitions: sda1 is root, sda5 is home, and sda6 is swap. (sda2 is the extended partition containing home and swap. This was a clean installation, so I don't know what happened to sda3 and sda4...)

All the information that I've been able to find recommends doing something like this:

mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1

Do I need to type a separate command for each partition, or is there a better way to do it? Also, should I use the UUID instead of the dev names?

Server :: Benefits To Creating Multiple Partitions For RAID1 Setups?

Dec 21, 2010

I am rebuilding a bunch of servers and want to do it right. They are Dell R200s and R300s with on-board LSI SAS1068E SCSI controllers with 2 SATA drives. The only RAID level supported on these cards is RAID 1. So, to the server, we have 148GB of space to deal with. They currently run 32-bit Ubuntu 8.10; I will be installing x64 Ubuntu 10.04.

I have always seen that it is best practice to partition in such a way that /boot, /var/log, /temp, and /home for example are separated out from /. Usually this is on a RAID5 or higher box. Is there any benefit to doing that sort of thing on a RAID1 box? I realize that this is in some ways a matter of opinion, but I would like the opinion of folks with experience. I'm pretty new to Linux in general.

The main services running on these boxes are Apache2, Tomcat6, MySQL, and Java.

The only one that shows in PCMANFM is the Movies partition. All others listed here are missing.

I checked syslog and it looks like they all mount correctly.

This puzzles me since all of them have the same options set.
