Ubuntu :: Specify Which Partitions Auto-mount ?

Jan 8, 2010

Is there any way to specify what partitions of my USB Hard drive automount? There's really only one I want mounted automatically, and I've made three partitions. I'd like it so the one mounts, but the other 2 don't. Possible?

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Mount Of Partitions?

Jan 9, 2010

I just installed kubuntu 9.10 and noticed that several partitions (fat32 and ntfs) are mounted automatically after I login. I searched /etc/fstab but found no entries for those partitions. So I guess there may be something like start-up scripts that automatically detect and mount all partitions on the hard disk at boot/login. Does anybody know the location of those scripts (if any)? I want to disable that auto mount.

Ubuntu :: How To Auto-mount Volumes/Partitions

Feb 21, 2010

I have 9.10 and notice that when I look in Places none of my volumes/partitions are mounted - if I click on them I have to enter my user password to authenticate to gain access. My problem is that (with some help) I have set up rsync so it runs when I shut down my PC and backs up my Home folder from a partition on sda to a partition on sdb - this is great but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I have done some tests and discovered that if I use my PC and never manually mount my backup sdb partition the rsync does not work (I also have GAdmin-rysnc so I can run manually backup but this also will not run if I do no mount the sdb volume). However, if I do mount the sdb backup partition and close down/restart then the backup works. What I need is my sdb backup partition to be automatically mounted every time I switch on - can this be done? I'm sure I had this working in 9.04 (auto mounting) but 9.10 seems not to like it.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Partitions Anymore - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 24, 2010

First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:

Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.

Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Fedora :: Argument Against Auto-mounting Of Other Partitions?

Apr 14, 2011

I boot several Redhat based distributions, Fedora 15, Fedora 14, CentOS, Scientific Linux, Redhat and occasionally something non-Redhat based like Ubuntu and Debian. Out of habit and preference I frequently set up partitions to be auto mounted at boot through fstab. Somewhere in time something went seriously wrong with the CentOS install. There are a ton of permission denied errors while booting CentOS (text style boot) mostly regarding shared libraries. The system will boot to the desktop and everything looks OK but some things don't work. I can't update the system because I have no network connection. I obviously can't get to the Internet or get e-mail. I can open a VT but can't log in as regular user or root.

Permission denied in both instances. I didn't make any drastic changes to the CentOS system, just minor tweaks. The culprit in my opinion is a combination of the fact that one of the other Linux systems did an SELinux relabel while booting and the CentOS partition was already mounted. Since the CentOS partition was mounted it too was relabeled. I can't prove this. If there's a way to prove it then I just don't have the skills or knowledge to do so. It's basically a theory based on what I know I've done with the several installed distributions. This is not a rant nor is it a request for help. Just a comment. An assumption, hopefully a correct assumption. The CentOS install was working flawlessly until something happened and I think that something was the SELinux relabel.

Hardware :: HAL Not Auto-mounting NTFS Partitions

Jan 26, 2010

I've recently installed Arch on my main PC, and I decided to use Xfce4 desktop environment as appose to gnome that I use on my laptop. Firstly, I had to search round for an icon theme to get any of the icons working (they were all just papers with red crosses in them to start with), which I think is taking lightweight a bit too far :P, but just my opinion.Now i've got that sorted I turned to the problem of auto-mounting partitions. I'm having some trouble getting HAL to auto-mount my NTFS partitions which have my documents and music on. They are NTFS because i've got dual boot windows, and had windows before Archlinux so NTFS was the logical fs type to use. I think HAL is auto mounting dvd's etc. (can't be sure as I aren't in Arch at the minute)I can mount the NTFS partitions manually using:mount -t ntfs /dev/sda(number from 1 through 3) /mnt/sda(1 through 3)

However, I can only access this via root, so I carried out: mchmod scott.scott /mnt/sda(1-3)or something similar and that works fine, so I know they can be mounted successfully. I've tried auto-mounting them using fstab but can't seem to get this working, and I would rather not have fstab auto-mount them, I would rather let HAL sort all that out for me.I have checked that dbus, hal, consolekit and xf86-input-evdev are all installed (although im not sure what xf86-input-evdev does).Has anyone got any ideas why its not auto-mounting the NTFS partitions. My laptop mounts the NTFS windows partition fine using gnome.

Ubuntu Installation :: WinXP Attempt Install Messes Up Partitions - Auto-mounting

Dec 18, 2010

Background information: I need to install WinXP on my computer to use Spectraview II software for monitor profiling. Tried it under Wine, didn't work...thought about virtualization, but Graeme Gill (creator of Argyll) said that probably wouldn't work:

Quote: The problem is that emulators often don't implement hardware details properly or at all. There's no standard way on Linux to read/write the DDC, so there is no surprise that wine doesn't emulate MSWin's API's for this. It's doubtful that any of the VM's do either. USB can be an issue too, and some instruments may not work in an emulated environment. I already had Ubuntu 10.10 installed, so thought I'd try installing WinXP after, then recovering the MBR. Lots of headache.

Ubuntu Installation :: Number Of Partitions / Logical Volumes Can Create Using Partman-auto Recipes?

Mar 2, 2011

Is there a limit to the number of partitions/logical volumes you can create using the partman-auto recipes? If not, any thoughts on why my preseed using the values included below results in only a /boot partition and logical volumes root, swap, and user? Is there another way to achieve putting /, /tmp, /var, /usr, /usr_local /opt, etc on their own logical volumes with preseeding?
