# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

Ubuntu Servers :: Second Hard Drive (sdb1) Is Not Automatically Mounted?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.

For some reason, the second hard drive (sdb1) is not automatically mounted:

rick@rab-1:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.0 GB, 499989348352 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60786 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000c17f6

[Code]....

Before I installed Ubuntu, I installed the RAID software to handle 4 500 GB hard drives - so there are supposed to be two mirrored drives. I'm not an expert in using RAID. I'm assuming it is correctly configured. I only "see" two drives. sda has Ubuntu etc. How can I get sdb1 mounted? I've tried using the palimpsest program but I'm afraid I screw it up. Do I need to re-format sdb1?

My problem is that during the startup process after a reboot, the drive is not being mounted automatically.

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drives Won't Be Automatically Mounted After Upgrading Some Packages

Sep 8, 2010

1) Environment:
Ubuntu 10.04

2) Phenomenon:
External hard drives won't be automatically mounted after upgrading some packages...

I have a "not good" habit: I'd love to upgrade whatever suggested by Ubuntu upgrading center every morning.
However, after upgrading some packages for today, my computer won't be able to automatically mount external harddrives, including file systems ext4 and ntfs.

My question is:
1) How can I check what packages have been upgraded just within today?
2) How to make my Ubuntu be able to automatically mount external hard drives whenever I plug in a harddrive as before?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: IPod Automatically Mounted But Can Only Write As Root?

Jan 30, 2010

I don't know why but every time I plug my iPod it gets mounted automatically as root and therefore I can't write anything in it. I mentioned this issue on the #suse irc channel posting mount output:

eugenio@openSUSE:~> mount
/dev/sda7 on / type ext4 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)

[Code]....

I read some posts about editing the fstab file but I'm not really sure how to do this (if this is the solution) and I believe this could have worked on earlier versions (where HAL was used) Is there anything I can do to make opensuse mount my ipod automatically with full access to normal users?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Prevent That Particular NTFS Partition From Automatically Being Mounted

Aug 21, 2010

I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.

(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.

Ubuntu :: Home Network - Media Drives Are Automatically Mounted To Allow Access If The Admin User Is Not Logged In?

Jul 9, 2010

This is the set up I have: PC downstairs by a tv, with 3TB of storage containing my media, connected to the tv too. HTPC upstairs by another tv and connected to it. A few laptops and other desktops around the house which are windows based

I want the downstairs pc to act as a file server and to run my torrent client, it is running Ubuntu desktop version and has xbmc installed too for use with the tv. The upstairs htpc has xbmc live on and will access the media from the file server. What I am looking to do is to be able to log into my ubuntu machine remotely from a laptop running windows so I can manage the files and add torrents for download etc, but for this to be a complete remote session, rather than taking control over what is already being shown on the downstairs pc, like VNC does in windows.

I have two user accounts set up on the main ubuntu machine, the admin account and a media user account which is set to go straight to xbmc after log in. Also how can I make sure that the media drives are automatically mounted to allow access if the admin user is not logged in?

Ubuntu :: Swap Not Automatically "mounted" After Harddisc Reshuffle?

Feb 3, 2011

I was running out of space so I added an extra harddisc (sdc) and shuffled a few mount points in /etc/fstab so it was set up how I wanted.In the process I noticed swap was listed twice, once as /dev/sda3 and once by UUID. While reconfiguring /etc/fstab I tried to use UUIDs so it didn't matter where the disc was physically attached so I removed the non-UUID entry and updated it to the correct UUID (for some reason it was wrong).Now though, when I start up swap is off and I have to turn it on by the swapon command (which accepts the UUID for the swap partition. Here is my /etc/fstab and the output of blkid

Code:
simon@simon-desktop:bf4390bb-39a4-43ac-ae53-d90e33062a19$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

Ubuntu Servers :: Grub To Automatically Boot - Wont Automatically Select One

Feb 28, 2011

I am having trouble getting grub to automatically boot into ubuntu server. When I turn on my server the grub menu shows up and shows me the choices. They all work fine except that grub wont automatically select one. This wouldn't be too much of a problem but this is a headless server and I can't boot into ubuntu without a keyboard. I tried looking through the grub 2 documentation but nothing seemed to work when I edited the conf file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Duplicate Drives In "Places" - Error "mount: /dev/sdd1 Already Mounted Or /media/Data Busy Mount: According To Mtab, /dev/sdd1 Is Already Mounted On /media/Data"

Feb 13, 2010

Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.

It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.

I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).

I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Can't Be Mounted?

Oct 20, 2010

Concerning an installation of Ubuntu 10.0.4 LST.After update from Update Manager, where a kernel update was installed:

Code:
mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/62643a8f-2322-4a0d-07842ff6a26 on /root
failed: invalid argument
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: no such file or directory[code[,,....

After this, it opens up BusyBox - when I exit from here, it responds with "Kernel Panic - attempting to kill init."I assumed this means the kernel can't be mounted, but I'm not great with these matters.

Ubuntu :: How To Retain Mounted Drives In 9.10

Jan 25, 2010

On my computer I have one IDE drive that is my boot drive and a mirrored SATA raid set. When I login as "root" and mount the SATA volume it's always there. When I logout or shutdown if I login as root it's always mounted. I want to do the same thing for my own user ID. I did a search on having volumes mounted when I boot but they seem related to older versions of Ubuntu. It almost seems like a permissions problem since the "root" ID mounts the volume when I boot and my user ID does not.

Ubuntu :: Sandisk Mp3 Player Mounted Before - But Not Now?

Jan 25, 2010

I have a Sandisk mp3 player. I got it because A - I like Sandisk and B - I know they have better out of box support for Linux than most other manufacturers. It is an 8gb mp3 player with an 8gb micro SD card, so each pieces of media mount independently under - SANDISK - 8gb Media.

Sandisk sits in my desk for a few months, unused, since then I upgrade systems to 9.10, blah blah... not it won't mount. Sure, it'll charge it and all. But the actual device won't mount. I did not check fdisk -l, however, I did check gparted and I never saw the thing get recognized.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Drives (USB) At Shutdown

Mar 15, 2010

OK got a couple of external USB hard drives and my mp3 player that are fairly often connected to my laptop. When updating the files on my mp3 player the other day I noticed something that seemed weird.After deletion of files there is same amount on the disk. After ejecting and reinserting things are still the same. To have the files correctly updated I have to Unmount the drive, then I see it flushing the .Trashes folder and actually freeing space on the drive.

Now the same thing seems to happen at Shutdown of the PC, files are not being updated and are still being seen by the mp3 player/hard drive. Think new files are being seen but old one not removed but not 100% sure.Is there anything I can do to force Ubuntu to correctly Unmount all drive at Shutdown so I don't have to do each one manually first? Or is there something else I am missing?

Ubuntu :: Home Partition Cannot Be Mounted

Apr 22, 2010

When I powered-up my computer today I received the message that the home partition listed in /etc/fstab cannot be mounted and to press ESC to go to the recovery shell.

My computer is dual-boot, with Windows on the first hard disk (sda) and Ubuntu 9.10 on the second hard disk (sdb); I am using Grub version 1.97 beta4. The home partition is thus on sdb2 and the file system is ext4.

The /etc/fstab file contains all the partitions and has not changed since last October. Also, when issuing the command fdisk l, all partitions are correctly displayed, including the home that cannot be mounted.

Finally, the command fsck /dev/sdb2 quickly returns the result that /dev/sdb2 is clean!
