Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Mount Drives On Startup After An Unexpeted Poweroff?

Jan 14, 2010

Last night there was a rather large thunderstorm, and my computer was on at the time. The power went out while my computer was on, and now it won't boot up. After the GRUB screen, a white message at the bottom of the normal loading screen says somthing along the lines of "a partition listed in /etc/fstab cannot be mounted /dev/disk/by-uuid/6835blahblahblah". I chose recovery mode from the grub menu, which gave me a similar message.


One or more mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: (ESC for recovery shell) /home waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/8bl I've googled around a fair bit, but people who got the same message were mainly those upgrading to Karmic, so a different problem. I think my problem was the fact that my computer was turned off possibly while writing and definitely without being unmounted.

So far I have tried changing /etc/fstab to refer to /etc/sda5 instead of UUID=68blahblah, but that came up with the same error. I have looked inside the /dev/disk/by-uuid and the disk that is trying to be mounted is there (so it's not a problem with that).

Ubuntu :: How Can I Auto-mount Drives On Startup

Dec 28, 2010

I've been trying to unsuccessfully auto-mount my drives when starting up. I've made a script that sets me to the root using "sudo -s" and then mounts the drives. The commands to mount the drives work properly when entered into the command line, but when I try running them from an executable, they don't work. What might I be missing?

Ubuntu :: Computer Wouldn't Mount NTFS Drives Anymore

Jul 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 on my computer. This also the first time I'm working with a linux distribution, so I'm sorry if I don't understand everything.Yesterday Ubuntu was running perfectly. Today I tried to install nvidia driver, and after that I started rythmbox. That was the moment I noticed my computer wouldn't mount NTFS drives anymore. What is weird cause yesterday it did mount them, and I didn't change anything (atleast I think I don't). The exact error Message is:Unable to mount location

So I searched the internet and they said to other people they should check System>Administration>Users and groups.So I did check it and it said account type: custom, when I clicked on the button change, which was next to it, It didn't do a thing.

Debian :: Mount Sshfs At Startup - Get Mount For UserA To Happen On Boot

Mar 18, 2011

I am struggling with getting an sshfs mount mounted on system boot. I have a script that mounts the sshfs for "userA". When userA runs the script all is well - user A can access the remote filesystem, root user can't see it as expected. The basic command is: sshfs userA@remote host:/home/userA /home/userA/mountdir -p 21212 -o password_stdin < passwordfile. I can prepend the sshfs command in the script with su - userA -c and when I run this script logged in as root all is well, userA has access and all is well. If I then put this script in /etc/init.d and reference it properly in the rc. directories the mount doesn't happen. If I prepend the sshfs command with sudo, same thing. Logged in as root I can run the script and UserA has access. Run the script in /etc/init.d during startup and the mount doesn't happen. Echoing text to a log file shows that the script is being executed but no mount happens.

Ubuntu :: Using Old Drives In New Computer

Jul 31, 2011

My computer's motherboard died a few days ago and I'm buying a new machine today. Since I've already got 2 hard drives with Ubuntu on them and all my files, I'd like to just place them into the new machine and fire it up. My question: what will happen if you just "transplanted" the drives into a new computer and turned it on? Will I need to edit fstab or something?

Ubuntu :: Can't Use The Internal DVD Drives On The Computer

May 12, 2011

I was wondering if it was possible to put something like a linux image on to a hard drive to install the OS on first boot. The reason I want to do this is because of the following reasons. First, I broke the IDE port on the mobo so I can't use the internal DVD drives on the computer.

Second, I don't have an extra SATA DVD drive lying around. Third, for some reason, this computer will boot from a USB DVD drive but once it starts loading the kernel, it just stops calling the drive and the computer freezes. I tested the disc and the drive with another computer and it works fine.And forth, the computer refuses to boot from a USB flash drive with linux on it. So as you can see, I'm in a bit of a pickle here. I would love to be able to hook the hard drive up to another computer and put the required files on the it for it to boot up to an installation.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount One Of My Window Drives ?

Aug 30, 2010


The other one mounts fine. They are all separate physical drives. Another oddity is in that it lists those two drives which are SATA as PATA, but I imagine that is something to do with my BIOS settings being on compatibility settings.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount External USB Drives?

Apr 12, 2011

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine as dual boot using WUBI but on a seperate partition to Windows. Loving it so far, but i cannot get any external drives to mount - i've tried pen drives, camera memory cards and hard drives but nothing comes up.

I have just tried restarting with a pen drive plugged in, and it finally showed something in the computer folder - "memory stick drive" is shown (and my internal CD drive, which i'm not sure was there before.), but i still can't access it and when I try to unmount it gives me the message

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Cannot Get Any Drives / Devices To Mount

Dec 10, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 3500 laptop that I'm running 10.04 on, pretty much everything works OK, and I don't appear to have any hardware problems (I've checked using Gnome Device Manager). When I plug in a USB flash or hard drive, I don't get any drives/devices to mount, although in Gnome Device Manager the USB device appears as a USB Mass Storage Device.

Running tail -f /var/log/messages produces this:
