Ubuntu :: Stuck With Wrong GRUB / Mount Of Root Filesystem Failed

May 23, 2010

A friend of mine upgraded his pc to ubuntu 10.04. Sadly enough we ran into issues with his graphics card, which apparently doesnt work well with lucid. We decided to downgrade to 9.10. I did this by installing over the old partition and chose to import the settings from the old account.The problems started when the pc booted for the first time:The list of kernels in grub2 was the one from 10.04.Somehow grub2 from the old installation seems to be still around and messes everything up. Any ideas how I could fix this?

Ubuntu :: Disk Space Is Wrong On Root Partition?

Jan 15, 2010

My root partition seems to be full bur is wrong because I have a partition with 15Gb space and the data is arround 7.5Gb I have:



PHP Code:

sudo df -lha
S.ficheros            Tama�o Usado  Disp Uso% Montado en
/dev/sda5              15G   14G  660M  96% /
proc                     0     0     0   -  /proc
/sys                     0     0     0   -  /sys


When I look for specific info about what is taking the space using du command I get that the space used by the root system is 7.2Gb. I get to the same conclusion when checking the space with Nautilus.

Red Hat :: Unable To Boot RHEL 5.2 And Unable To Mount Root File System In Rescue Mode

Jan 28, 2010

Environment: A 32-bit kernel RHEL5.3 system running on a virtual machine. The root(/) filesystem is on an LV.

Issue: Unable to resize the FS after extending the root LV since it is mounted. After extending the LV, online resizing of the FS was not supported and the root filesystem could not be unmounted while it was in use. On rebooting, I got a kernel panic error. In runlevel 1, I couldn't run chroot, couldn't find the /etc/fstab, root FS could not be mounted, fsck did not run (tried block 31 for second copy of superblock using dd count=1 bs=4k skip=31 seek=1 if=/dev/sda2 of=/dev/sda2), couldn't find any rpm on installation media to install unix-utils rpm. On running commands in runlevel 1,

I got the following output.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Root Partition

Jan 13, 2010

When I try to boot I get this error message:

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the systemwait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/c946b41f-2f8f-4a28-8478-11a50d6fc0e8 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

Booting from my 9.10beta livecd sudo fdisk -lu shows my root partition (sda5) but blkid doesn't, and there's no way to mount it.

I know similar questions have been posted before but they all involve using fsck or e2fsck, which don't work with my ext4 filesystem.

FYI Acer Aspire 7535G Kubuntu 9.10 AMD64

Ubuntu :: Mount FAT32 Partition Without Being The Files Owned By Root?

Jan 27, 2010

I want to mount my FAT32 partition automatically on startup. It gets mounted but the problem is that all the files in the FAT32 partition are shown as owned by root. Because of that I can't paste files or write to this partition. This is my fstab file

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation

Debian Configuration :: Mount Options Of Root Partition

Apr 28, 2016

I made a mistake in Gnome Disk utility tool. Instead of changing the options for a USB key, I changed the options of the root partition.

In Initial state, automatic options were desactivated. I just activated them. And after desactivacting them, I realized my mistake and switched back to "non automatic options".

By doing this, I suppose that defaults values were used since now, the system starts in command line mode and no more in graphic interface mode.

When I try the "startx" command, I get a "read-only" error.

With the command "sudo mount -o rw,remount /" the graphic interface is started.

Below is the configuration of the partition under the gnome disk utility tool :

"Mount at startup" is checked
"Show in user inteface" and "Require additional authorization to mount" are unchecked

Mount options : nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show
Mount point : /mnt/eb11d4d6-75db-XXXx-XXXx
Identify as : /dev/disk/by-uuid/eb11d4d6-75db-XXXx-XXXx
Filesystem type : auto

I do not want to change anything that could leat to a critical error. So what do you think I should do ?

Fedora :: Mount A Ntfs Partition Without Root Password?

Apr 25, 2010

When I click on my Vista partition under "Places" in the Fedora menus, I'm asked to enter the root password for mounting the partition. Is there a way to allow any user to mount this particular partition, to avoid the unnecessary input? The partition is not listed in /etc/fstab (fedora 12 for x86_64).

Ubuntu :: Not Syncing Vfs / Unable To Mount Root FS

Jan 7, 2010

My computer developed a new trick tonight. 4 times in the last 2 hours it's booted & ran fine...for about 30 minutes or so. Then some apps become unstable & crash, and some don't notice anything wrong. Firefox keeps running fine, but if I have a nautilus window open, the next time you click anywhere, it crashes. So, try to restart the machine & it comes back with the "kernel panic -not syncing vfs unable to mount root FS on unknown block" message. The first time I restarted it, I managed to get to a root terminal & fsck the drive. It found 2 errors that it fixed, supposedly. The next collection of restarts, it would just go through bios, then grub, then hang on the error.

So, power down the machine first & then boot it....magically, I'm back to the desktop again for another 30-45 minutes. Anyone have any idea what's going on? It's been fine since the day mint was released...and the only system change was plugging my 2nd monitor back in 3 days ago. Why would it go kukoo in the last 2 hours?The machine is a quad core intel with 4 gigs of ram, Asus mobo and a 250gig sata drive for the system drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Mount Root

Mar 26, 2010

somehow got Ubuntu 9.10 set up dual boot on my Vista laptop. I installed it somehow off the live cd. Everything working fine and then I decided to update from the update manger to Ubuntu 10.04 (dummy me)!

Got half way through installation and system froze for more than an hour. Had to shut down computer. Now when I select to boot to Ubuntu, computer freezes with this message:

[ 1.068088] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)

Can anything, within reason, be done? Should I use windows to uninstall Ubuntu and then try to re-install? If so, can someone tell me how I might have setup dual boot off the live cd? Should I just flog myself?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Root Disk

I can't mount my Ubuntu partition. I was using my PC when it suddenly crashed, so I rebooted. When Ubuntu started again, it said that it was mounting, but I rebooted again. So, now when I start it tries to mount the main partition but it can't. Then appears <initramfs> and I don't know what to do.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Mount Root Fs ?

May 11, 2011

Was using 10.04 and decided to upgrade to 10.10 with a view to upgrading to 11.04. No dice.

That was a few days ago so forget about that bit, no traces of 10.04 left now...

Downloaded the LiveCD version of 11.04 (twice, in case it was a faulty image) and install.

Every time I boot I get the "unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)" error - no matter what I do.

I've tried reinstalling the system totally from the CD a number of times...

Tried purging and reinstalling Grub2...

Tried messing about with the grub bootloader settings...

And much more besides!

The system will boot perfectly off the LiveCD, which indicates to me that the 'system' is compatible with the computer?

I've done most of the things that a simple Google search on these forums suggests, with reinstalls in between but still can't get the PC to boot.

I have got and run the boot info script, although I'm in the middle of a complete reinstall AGAIN so will post the new version when it's done.

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Mount Root?

Jul 30, 2010

Warning - Windows user who doesn't know much Linux outside of writing programs. Do feel free to patronise providing you explain in detail .

I have a working Windows XP machine. I've installed a second hard drive (channel 1, slave to Windows XP master) and installed Centos (having checksummed the images and verified the media). Problem is it will not boot.

The exact text on screen is...

Booting 'Centos (2.6.18-194.el5)'
root (hd1,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet


I've managed to use the "Linux rescue" to at least ensure the box default boots to Windows. how to get Centos to boot.

Also, given I told Centos where to install to, and I've not changed anything since, how come it could not even manage to create a working system? Never had this problem on Windows (OK, always on Windows 98 but I never considered that an O/S ).

Fedora X86/64bit :: Dolphin On KDE 4.2 - Mount Each Partition With Root Pass

Apr 20, 2009

Ever since I started using KDE as in 4.2, I have been doing this regularly. When I startup KDE, I open Dolphin and click and mount each partition with root pass. I thought it might be some KDE issue as is the ever developing code and will be fine in future updates. But now I'm in 4.2.1 and it still exists. Upon inquiring fellow users on other distros, I have come to believe this is a *Fedora only* issue now. [URL].

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic, Unable To Mount Root?

Feb 2, 2010

I recently (a couple weeks ago) installed Ubuntu on my desktop computer dual booting with Win XP (which I am using right now). I used Wubi to install it, and everything went fine. I used Ubuntu without a problem up until a few days ago. I am using an install of Ubuntu (I am not running it off a disc, USB drive or through the Wubi software).

I restarted my computer after using Ubuntu constantly for the time I've had it installed. It booted into Win XP (because it was first on the list where you select which OS to load) so I restarted again and tried to boot into Ubuntu. Instead of working, it gave me the error "Kernel panic - not syncing: unable to mount root" or something like that. So, I restarted again, and it was the same thing. I restarted in recovery mode, and it was the same thing.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Failed To Update - Unable To Mount Root FS

May 25, 2010

I wanted to try out the new Ubuntu 10.04, but since I don't have any CD's available I thought I could use my 9.10 CD and upgrade from it.

1. Installed 9.10 on the entire disk.
2. Went to update manager(?) and clicked the button to upgrade to 10.04
3. It successfully downloaded all the files.
4. When installing the new files it suddenly said that it failed to update, and it stopped. Then I went to do a hardware test, but none of the menus were working.

I had to do a manual shutdown, and reboot the computer. This time I was met with an error "Unable to mount root fs".

I figured the upgrade was the problem, so I reinstalled 9.10 to try without upgrading.
1. Reinstalled 9.10 on the entire disk.
2. Went to update manager(?) and started the normal update for 9.10 so the system would be up-to-date.
3. Same thing happened now, it fails to update and it makes my computer useless.

I've already checked my hardware for errors, can't find any. I've checked the CD for errors, can't find any. I had 9.04 on the same computer a few weeks ago, and it was rock-solid. Worked like a dream. I'm using Win7 now though.

General :: Unable To Mount Ubuntu Partition

May 9, 2011

I was dual-booting Ubuntu (10.10) and Windows 7. I installed Backtrack in addition to these 2, and the Ubuntu GRUB was replaced with the one from Backtrack.

Now when I boot, only Backtrack and Windows 7 are listed in GRUB. When I run fdisk from Backtrack, I see all partitions, and running a Partition Manager lists the Ubuntu partition as a Linux partition. However, the partition manager says that it is unable to read the contents of the partition, and that it is unable to re-read the partition table.

Also, the Ubuntu, Backtrack, and Linux Swap partition are all listed under the same Extended partition.
