Ubuntu :: USB Device Entries In Fstab In 10.10?

Dec 11, 2010

I have UUID entries for USB devices in fstab in my Ubuntu 10.10. I assume this is because I have upgraded my Ubuntu's since 8.04. Each time I boot, I get a message saying it cannot mount the devices even though they are present. I have to skip mounting in order to complete the boot process. I also have two filesystems mounted at Root ( /). See later post in this thread.can I safely remove these entries from fstab and have Ubuntu automount the devices? If I do so, will this get rid of the messages at boot time?

Red Hat :: Wrong Entries In FSTAB?

Jul 15, 2010

I decided to implement quota on /home file system, but unfortunately I had not separate partition of /home file system. So I made entries in fstab at root (/) partition as follow:-

Label=/ / ext3 defaults,usrquota, usrgroup 1 1

and reboot the system, but my system could not give me login screen and after a longtime giving many "read only files" error ends up at following error message:-

"I could not start the X server (your graphical environment) due to some internal error. Please contact your system administrator or check your syslog to diagnose. In the meantime this display will be disabled. Please restart gdm when the problem is corrected."

I also got single user mode and try to remove changes whatever i had made recently but it gives me read only fstab file.

Fedora :: Sshfs Entries In /etc/fstab Prevent Booting

Jun 3, 2011

I added an sshfs entry fto /etc/fstab in a fresh FC15 build ona laptop and this seems to work

sshfs#user@server:/opt/apache-tomcat-7.0.2/webapps/ /mnt/server/opt/apache-tomcat-7.0.2/webapps/ fuse uid=500,gid=500,allow_other 0 0

I can mount and umount /mnt/server/opt/apache-tomcat-7.0.2/webapps/ without problems.

But after a reboot the systme it hangs when loading, I can't copy paste the messages but it said something about boot dependencies, and it was apparent the error was loading fstab. I had to Ctrl D or enter root password to get a recovery system, after commenting out the sshfs line (and some nfs lines too) from /etc/fstab after another reboot I was in.

sshfs used to be permitted in /etc/fstab it seems , I've not used it before, could this be a FC15 issue? I have seen other threads about FC15 and nfs boot issues presumably to do with the new booting mechanism.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 Fstab Entries For CD / DVD (and Floppy) Drives Will Not Mount After 11.4 Install Or Upgrade

Jul 29, 2011

After installing 11.4 my fstab entries for CD and DVD drives as well as floppy generate errors when I try to mount them automatically or via Nautilus when inserting CD or DVD. The icons and CD/DVD name show up ok but will not mount. Manually mounting via terminal command works. Here are the relevant lines from fstab


In /dev scd0 and scd1 are symlinks pointing to sr0 and sr1 respectively. The above error message was generated after attempting to load a CD in scd0 i.e. my laptop internal CD/DVD drive. Lines 10,11 and 12 are the fstab lines quoted above.

Ubuntu :: Authentication For Mounting Device W/o Fstab?

Feb 9, 2010

I use Ubuntu 9.04 I have a problem. I have a file, containing ext2 file system ( mke2fs -F ~/fs.ext2 )Is it possible to mount this file by user (not root) without editing fstab and from terminal?

P.S. Using /dev/loopN is not what I need. Maybe, it's possible to use FUSE, is it?

General :: Preventing Udev From Creating Device Entries Under /dev

May 21, 2010

I need to prevent udev from creating the /dev/v4l/by-path/* and /dev/v4l/by-id/* files upon connecting my webcam. The problem is that Kopete doesn't want to display the video if these files are present. It works fine if I remove them, but I'd rather not have them created in the first place, since they seem to be completely useless anyway.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get Device IDs From Drive Devices For Fstab Scripting?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to write a script to modify /etc/fstab that will add entries for a number of partitions on different disks.

The only thing that I do not know how to do is to obtain a unique id such as the ones in /dev/disk/by-id/ to address by from a given partition (ie /dev/sdb1). In my fstab I noticed that in installation the system added fstab entries that are unique (in /dev/disk/by-id/)

I could simply do /dev/sdb1 and so on, but I would prefer a unique identifier so that each mount point is tied to a partition on a specific and unique physical drive.

i need this to be script-able if possible, if not I would still like to know.

Red Hat :: Mapping /proc/scsi/scsi Entries With Respective Device Names In /dev/ Directory

Apr 11, 2011

In my understanding, the way /proc/scsi/scsi gets populated, /proc/paritions also gets populated in the same fashion. i.e. the description for first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi can be seen in the first entry of /proc/partitions and same for rest.

So, With this assumption, in my project, I used to relate first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi with first entry of /proc/partitions to get its total size and same for all entries.

But, I observed some differences in following scenario, where

1) The first 4 entries in /proc/scsi/scsi are SAN luns attached to my system and for which the actual device names in /dev/ are sda,sdb,sdc and sdd.

2) The last 4 entries are the internal HDDs on same system. In /dev/, their respective device names are sde,sdf,sdg & sdh.

(Output attached at end of the thread)

But in /proc/partitions, the device order is different.

You can see their respective sizes in /proc/partition output as well.

So, my question is, in this particular scenario, I can't relate the first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi with first entry of /proc/partition. i.e. scsi0:00:00:00 is not /dev/sde, because it is actually /dev/sda.

It seems that my assumption is wrong in this scenario.

Is there any way or mechanism to figure out actual device name for an entry in /proc/scsi/scsi in /dev/ directory?

How can my application should relate /proc/scsi/scsi entries with their respective device names and sizes?

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.

How do I rename the current fstab to another name and rename the fstab.BAK to fstab? Since this is read only in the /etc directory I have not been able to make this happen from a command prompt.

Fedora Hardware :: Full Speed USB MSC Device Detected As Input Device?

Apr 7, 2011

I am working on an embedded system, which is an USB MSC device that supports some vendor specific scsi commands. I am using FC10 laptop as USB host for testing, and it runs some small apps based on sg3. All has been well for ~ a week. The FC10 laptop is able to communicate with the device and retrieve data. Suddenly, starting from today, the laptop is not able to properly detect the device. When plugged-in, the MSC device is detected as input device (I thought). This is observed from "dmesg" output and changes in "/dev/input/".The device under development is running at full speed. When I connect to winXP, no problem. A windows file explorer pops up, showing the content of the drive.Also, the FC10 has no problem with other USB flash drive (high speed).
