Ubuntu Networking :: Autofs And Nautilus Replacing Fstab - Browsing?

May 6, 2011

Because of NFS traffic congestion, I am trying to use autofs instead of fstab(NFS) to mount /home and /data directories on our system (from a NFS server). I have it up and running - users can log in and their /home directories work fine. However, when they need to save a file (openoffice or nautilus) they cannot see the directory tree to locate folders for saving. I have tried setting the --ghost option in auto.master, and I have tried commenting the BROWSE_MODE in /etc/default/autofs. But no luck. Using the terminal, I can go a folder and see subfolders using ls -la. They then appear in Nautilus, but later disappear. Since this is a school network, I can't expect teachers and students to use the terminal to save files. They are used to using Nautilus, with our regular NFS mounts.

Ubuntu :: Replacing Nautilus For Dolphin?

Jul 23, 2011

Just yesterday I did a fresh install on my aspire one of ubuntu 11.04. It then installed konqueror and (apperently at the same time dolphin). Now I did allot of googling and now it works to a level that if i press home folder in my unity bar it opens in Dolphin.Nice But the most important thing still doesnt work, that is if I want to save a document from libreoffice or pdf or what ever program it still opens a window of nautilus. I need it to be a window of dolphin because nautilus doesnt understand the networkdirs you can make with dolphin. (makeing a nautilus network dir doesnt work).

Debian :: Too Many Nautilus Windows When Browsing?

Oct 23, 2010

Is there any way to configure nautilus to open new folders in the same window? Now, when I browse to a folder in my ~/ and finally reach the folder I was looking for. I have several or so nautilus windows open. Just to navigate to a specific folder in my home directory (~/). I think all those windows are a little excessive.

Ubuntu :: Browsing The Filesystem (Nautilus) And Firefox Seems Realy Sluggish Compared To The Windows 7 Counterparts

Mar 22, 2011

I can't quantify the behavior, but every time I run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (32-bit), I get the impression that I'm using a much slower machine. All I have to compare it to is my Windows 7 64-bit install on the same machine (specs in signature), where almost everything is very snappy by comparison.

I don't have skipping audio or delayed video when watching DVDs in VLC Media Player, and Urban Terror (a 3D game) runs fine, but just general stuff like browsing the filesystem (Nautilus) and Firefox seems reaaaaallly sluggish compared to the Windows 7 counterparts.

What I'm doing at the time does not appear to affect the sluggishness. I have noticed the same impression of sloth both while copying large files, and while doing nothing in particular. That's not how it's supposed to work, is it? Does an Ubuntu install normally slow down over time? I have only been running 10.04 LTS since last October or so.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting NFS Share By Autofs?

Oct 28, 2010

I have a server, with a static IP of 192.168.1.17, that is running Ubuntu lucid sever edition and that exports some shares per NFS. Here is its /etc/exports:

Code:
/media/Share00 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,nohide,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)
/media/Share01 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,nohide,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)
/media/Share02 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,nohide,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)
/media/Share03 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,nohide,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)

[Code]....

However, autofs does not work: the /msrv directory appears and disappears when I start and stop autofs; but when I enter "cd /msrv" followed by "cd Share05" in the terminal, I get the "bash: cd: /msrv/Share05: No such file or directory" message after the second command.

Ubuntu Networking :: Automatically Mount NFS Shares Without Autofs?

Jan 24, 2010

Setup clients on a LAN to automatically mount NFS shares whenever the fileserver is up, without using autofs. Instead a simple bash script which checks if the server is up, and if the shares need to be mounted or unmounted is called by a custom upstart job. For a small office or home network populated with Unix-like computers (e.g., a few Ubuntu desktops or laptops and a fileserver), NFS (Network File System) is a good way to share storage space and centralise the backup of important documents. However, having a fileserver running 24/7 is often overkill for such a setup.

One way to have clients mount NFS shares automatically when the fileserver is turned on, is to use a package called autofs. Unfortunately, there are a few unresolved issues with using autofs in combination with NFS. In my case, when autofs tries to mount NFS shares when the fileserver is turned off, the Gnome desktop, and Nautilus in particular, becomes extremely unresponsive, regardless of the options used. Attempting to mount the share manually from the command line when the server is down however, does return a message of failure quite promptly, without hanging the desktop.

To solve this issue, I wrote a simple bash script that is run through the upstart system. The script simply checks if the fileserver is up, if the shares need mounting or unmounting, and then sleeps for a while before checking again. This works out quite well, so I decided to share this information in case someone else runs into these issues. PrerequisitesThis howto assumes that you have an NFS server set up with shares exported, and one or more clients capable of mounting those shares. For more information on setting up NFS shares and mounting them on a client from the command line, see: SettingUpNFSHowTo.

Clients should be able to ping the server to determine if it is running. Naturally, you need administrator access on the clients to install the script and upstart job outlined below. This script assumes that the directory paths of the shares match the location where they are mounted. In my case, the fileserver has two shares: /media/Storage and /media/Backup. On the clients these shares are mounted on the same paths. If your setup deviates from this, the script needs some modification. The script From the desktop of one the clients, paste the following bash script as a new file in your favourite text editor:

Code:

#!/bin/bash
# The hostname or IP-address of the fileserver:
FILESERVER="myfileserver.local"
# Check every X seconds (60 is a good default):

[code]...

Now adjust the FILESERVER variable. In this example, my fileserver is called myfileserver. By default, Ubuntu sets up your networking environment in such a way, that computername.local can be used to reach that computer over the local network, so the network name for myfileserver is myfileserver.local. Of course, you can also use the IP-address of the server. Next, change the MOUNTS variable to match the NFS shares exported by your NFS server. MOUNTS is an array; multiple entries are separated by spaces. So if you have one share exported as /media/MyShare, that line would look like this:

Code:

MOUNTS=( "/media/MyShare" )

An advantage of mounting shares in /media, is that they automatically show up as mounted drives on the user's desktop. Note that this howto assumes that you use the same paths for the share on the server and client side! Save the script to your desktop with an obvious name. In this example we call it mount_my_nfs_shares. Open a terminal and cd to the desktop. Make the script executable by calling:

Code:

chmod +x mount_my_nfs_shares

Next, move it to a place where it can be called by our upstart job, but also from the console to test. A good place to put such custom executables is /usr/local/bin.

Code:

sudo mv mount_my_nfs_shares /usr/local/bin

This script uses the logger command to tell the system's log what it is doing. To test this script, open up two terminals; in one, execute the following so we can monitor the log messages:

Code:

tail -f /var/log/syslog

In the other, simply execute mount_my_nfs_shares. If the script works, your shares should show up on the desktop and the computer:// location in Nautilus. If the fileserver goes down or becomes unreachable, the shares should disappear, and reappear when the fileserver comes back on-line. If this works, move on to the next step. Installing a custom upstart job The next step is to have the clients automatically run the above script when they are booted. We can use upstart for this. Create a new text file, and enter the following:

Code:

# mount_my_nfs_shares - mount NFS shares on fileserver, if present
description"Mount NFS-shares"
start on (filesystem)
respawn

[code]....

How the script works The script enters an eternal loop and keeps checking if it can reach the fileserver once every minute (unless you adjust the INTERVAL variable). If it can reach (ping) the fileserver, it checks if the mounts are already mounted by searching for them (grepping) in the output of mount. If they are not mounted, it tries to mount them. Else, if the server is down, it looks in the output of mount to see if these mounts exist. If they do, it tries to unmount them with the -f flag (useful for unmounting unreachable NFS shares).

Networking :: NFS Autofs Can't See Mounted Subdirectory?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a machine (mercury) on which /home/hyperhacker/video is a mounted external hard drive while the rest of /home/hyperhacker is on the internal hard disk. I have a second machine (konata) using autofs to automatically mount mercury:/home/hyperhacker in /mnt/mercury as needed. This works, except /mnt/mercury/video shows up empty.mercury:/etc/exports has: Code: /home/hyperhacker konata(ro,subtree_check)/home/hyperhacker/video konata(ro,subtree_check) and I've tried a few variations in konata: Code: $ cat /etc/auto.master

Networking :: Autofs No Longer Working - Finding Source ?

May 23, 2011

After several days of searching, reading and re-installing, I'm at a complete loss as to why autofs has suddenly stopped working.

Basically, I can see the shared folders on the host computer but as soon as I try to cd into the folders I get "-bash: cd: [directory]: No such file or directory" (where [directory] = shared drive).

The setup was working before and the same exact setup is being used and is fully functional on another computer.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04

Here is the content of auto.cifs:

Code:

Here is the content of auto.master

Code:

And credentials are stored in /etc/auto.smb.goblin (where goblin = name of windows computer sharing folders).

When I do "ls -l /home/shoryuken/TerraDrive/goblin" I get:

Code:

Now if I try to "cd" into any of the shared drives (like D-Drive, GW_Share or TerraDrive) I get the following:

Code:

A second or subsequent attempt at "ls -l" results in:

Code:

Note the question marks that are now everywhere.

I'm not sure where to look to find out why this is failing. The shared drive are visible, but then disappear when I try to access them. The same exact setup, on another machine works perfectly fine.

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.

Ubuntu Networking :: Browsing Via SSH Tunnel Very Slow

Jan 31, 2010

Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.

Ubuntu Networking :: Occasionally Very Slow Web Browsing

Jul 6, 2010

my computer is very slow to view regular web pages, and generally fails to load them. It seems to be a problem specifically with webpages - I can work over SSH, use email, transfer files over FTP connections, with no noticeable problems, but any regular website (including this one) can take an age to load. This happens regardless of the browser I use (at least, it happens on Firefox, Opera, and Chromium), and regardless of wired or wireless connection (though admittedly I've not tried using a wired connection very much). As far as I can tell, it can also happen on any website. It is specific to linux - my computer is dual-boot ubuntu 10.04/Windows XP, and there is no networking problem when I use Windows.

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Browsing - Fast Download ?

I'm using wlan and I'm behind a NAT firewall. Downloading with BitTorrent can reach speeds of 1,5MB/s, but browsing is incredibly slow. Chromium/Firefox seems to hang forever on "connecting.." or "waiting for". Sometimes pressing the reload button will speed it up. I have two Ubuntu boxes and they are the same way.

I don't get it, if downloading is so fast, how can browsing be so slow. Yes I have disabled ipv6 in grub and in Firefox, don't know how to do it in Chromium. Have 64-bit Ubuntu. Cnet wlan card using rt61pci module.

Ubuntu Networking :: USB Wifi Adapter Works But No Browsing?

Dec 19, 2010

HPG62-144DX notebook, Windows 7 and considering Ubuntu. I installed 10.10 and tried to get my wifi running but that wouldn't work. I had a connection only sometimes and it broke up after 5 minutes. Once I got a webpage but annoyingly slooow. Got the advice to update drivers and stuff. But the wifi connection is the only one I have...

Went back to 10.4 32-bit. Booted from CD and will keep it that way until this is sorted out. Now I see my wifi hotspots directly and I have no problem to establish a connection. The icon shows 3 bars quality. Network Tools says: Wlan1 = Realtek, Transmitted bytes xxx Received bytes yyy, no errors, link speed = 1Mbps, State = active. Looks good!

The only minor thing here is that enabling/disabling my internal Atheros antanna also enables/disables my Alfa USB Wifi adapter (based on Realtek 8187) but who cares. A bigger problem is: when I start Firefox it doesn't come up with a webpage. It just keeps on saying: "loading". At the bottom of the screen it keeps saying "Looking up" for ages. Nothing further.

Ubuntu Networking :: Browsing Extremely Slow After Upgrading To 11.04?

May 29, 2011

I don't know if others are experiencing this but browsing is extremely slow in firefox after "upgrading" to ubuntu 11.04. I have not tried other browsers. Even checking for updates fails several times.

I had to re-boot to windows to post this thread and now it's working fine. It's been 3 days since upgrading and I've observed many times that there's no such problem in windows while I have to wait like 4-5 minutes and refresh many times to open a single page. Some sites like google are quicker though. I use firefox 4.0 both in ubuntu and windows. I didn't have this problem in 10.10 and it took me about 5 hrs. to download 1 GB upgrade packages.
