I'm running Kubuntu Karmic on my Dell Inspiron laptop - about 200 bug fixes behind because my only available internet is a cellular connection on a crappy wi-fi router - and last night, I suspended it, but it shut down instead. Not a problem, it does this fairly often, figure the RAM gets jostled or something.
But when I go to boot it up, it gets stuck at the pre-loading screen before getting garbled and dropping to the shell, where it says "mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert hex code here] failed: invalid argument". Of course, mounting /root/sys, /root/dev and /root/proc fails, (directory does not exist) and it gives me the busybox initramfs prompt.
I'm trying to mount my new Western Digital Elements 2tb hard drive, but every time I try to plug it into the computer I get this error message:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (3907027119): Invalid argument
HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
But when I tried opening the hard drive from nautilus I still got the same error message as above (no other volumes was connected at the time). I've also tried opening and watching it in GParted, and I can see it there as a volume that's not allocated. When I tried to allocate the hard it I got the message that it had no partition table. And that I cold make one. I tried and Ubuntu suggested to make a MS-DOS partition table for it. But there I got a little scared as I've not done this before. The external hard drive is brand new and was brought today. And I don't have the possibility to test it with Windows or Mac as I'm using Linux only on my machines.

I am using an embed linux application and trying to mount a USB device. The USB worked fine in windows. I then put it on my Linux box formatted (I hope correctly) And then tried to do the following to mount it
Disk /dev/sda: 4040 MB, 4040748544 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 491 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
i downloaded baldurs gate II shadows of amn iso's, because i lost one of the CD's to the box, but anyways, I went to mount the third .ISO for installation, and BAM! my computer froze, so i waited five minutes, came back, and still frozen. shut it down for 20 minutes, pulled it back up, and it's got this error as follows; "Mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/65b0a6a-a366-435a-a086-58428cfe2bd1 on /root Failed: invalid argument
I'm having some difficulities with truecrypt and cannot figure out what's wrong since this is my first attempt to create hidden encrypted partition. I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64b with latest 6.3a truecrypt. After using truecrypt gui (just command truecrypt) I've tried: create volume-->create volumne within a partition/drive-->hidden trucrypt volume --> select some /dev/sdX by my choice --> select aes & sha512 --> password --> and format it.
when formating finished message "wrong ss, swith or wrong superblock of /dev/loop0" appeared. I've got no idea what could I do with it neither know whats program trying to do! Ok formating's done, then if you're trying to mount that partition then I would expect prompt for password, but that did not happen ...
EDIT: sudo mount /dev/loop0 /media/tmp/ also complaint about wrong superblock, but that does not ring any bell since i've got no idea what /dev/loop0 is or is for...

I have a SONY laptop, PCG-7181M model. It came with Windows 7 but I changed the OS to Ubuntu. Last night it asked me to upgrade to the new version called Natty Narwhal. I had to go to bed so I changed the sleep timer on the laptop to 2 hours, the time it would have taken the upgrade to complete. I woke up and the laptop was off, now only the grub menu shows up and the laptop won't boot. I tried doing this: - When the machine boots up, press Esc to get to the Grub menu - Select one of the recovery mode options. This will boot you up to a single-user root prompt. - Run sudo fdisk /dev/sda (this assumes that your hard drive is at sda) - Type p to see which hard drive partition is labeled Linux swap. In my case the partition was /dev/sda5. Type q to exist fdisk. - Type these commands:
Basically, I just installed Ubuntu over Windows Vista because I was getting fed up with the performance on it. During install I set up a partition, one for Ubuntu and one for data. However, my second, larger partition gives this error when I try to mount it... Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (976764927): Invalid argument
Hints: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS), or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
Trying to get scanning going with my all-in-one, and have been troubleshooting it for awhile, and nothing works. Could use expert advice on this topic for an HP c6380 All-in-One. Printing does fine. All attempts at scanning are failing. scanimage -L says the device is my webcam. I don't know if usb scanner is in /dev.
When I boot, after startup and before I log on, an error icon appears. I click - it shows a summary of the material that normally rolls by on a unix startup. One item is checked. It says:
Code: Enabling /etc/fstab swaps: swapon: /dev/mapping/vg_knox-lv_swap: read swap header failed: invalid argument I have 1 disk - it has 2 partitions - one an 83 type with a file system in it, holds the kernel, mounts at /boot.
The second partition is an 8e type contains a volume group logically split between lv_root and lv_swap and physically located on sda2. As I understand it, the system is having trouble processing the commands for lv_swap. I am tempted to mess with these commands, but don't have enough know how to do so and am short on the time required to learn enough to master this subject.
I get the following message when trying to access my 1tb usb drive "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: Error opening '/dev/sdr1': Permission denied Failed to mount '/dev/sdr1': Permission denied Please check '/dev/sdr1' and the ntfs-3g binary permissions, and the mounting user ID.More explanation is provided at [URL].. Really wierd thing is Linux Mint Debian reads it just fine
The VPN connection '<insert name here>' failed because of invalid VPN secrets
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on a Dell Latitude D600. It's a fresh brand new install. After I installed all the updates, I proceeded to install network-manager-vpnc. Then, I imported .pcf files so that I can connect to the office VPN,but it gives me the error message above.I have gone to ~/.gnome2/keyrings and renewed everything.Tried moving them away, and then back again. Created a new keyring. Nothing.
I am running Red Hat with 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE kernel version. I am trying to run encryptfs to encrypt a partition on my hard drive. One of the kernel modules necessary is the md5.ko. I noticed it wasn't loaded in when doing an lsmod. I tried running modprobe md5 and it fails to load:
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:
I'm running ubuntu 9.04 and trying to pull over some files via the GUI from a XP box over locally. I'm getting this error:"error while copying file into /volcano/tunes invalid argument" (under show more details)If I just copy over a mp3 file it works fine but the when I copy the entire directory I get this error.
I have an old PC with two hard drives (40 and 60Gb) and it uses dual IGhz pIII processors. It shares screen,mouse and keyboard with another PC.Both into Netgear modem. It ran ubuntu 8.04 and XP Pro on the drives above with no problems. Then I decided to try Mint 11 (34bit CD) - result after Grub blank screen other than flashing cursor at top left.No input from keyboard. Tried Mint KDE 10 (34bit DVD) same result. Tried Kubuntu 10 (CD) same result. Reinstalled Ubuntu 8.04 no problem. Upgraded via download from 8.04 to 10LTS hoping that this would somehow prevent the problem and have screen which says:-
starting up  ACPI no DMI BIOS year,ACPI =force is required to enable acpi mount: mounting none on /dev failed: No such device udevd: error getting socket: Invalid argument error initialising netlink socket udevd error initialising netlink socket libudev: udev_monitor_new_from_netlink:error getting socket:Invalid argument Segmentation fault Gave up waiting for root device.Common problems: Boot args (cat/proc/cmmdline) Check root delay (Did the system wait long enough) Check root (did the sytem wait for the right device) Missing modules (cat/proc/modules; 1s /dev) ALERT! dev/disc/by-uuid/"long number here" does not exist.Dropping to a shell.
Then it goes into Busybox and ends with "initramfs". I have tried altering the boot device in BIOS from HDD0 through 3 with the same result other than more bad language!
I've just moved a server across to CentOS 5.5 64-bit and I have been trying to get some custom software running on it. However I'm getting an unusual error during run time: sched_setaffinity: Invalid argument I've had this software working on a old versions of Gentoo (2.6.12-gentoo-r6) and Fedora. And the latest version of Ubuntu server 10.04.1. (All 64 bit). It looks remarkable similar to: Core test failed on s390x RHEL6 If v7 bug fix and enhancement update has been incorporated into CentOS 5.5 64 bit yet? Or how I might find out.
In 10.04 I was using the following commands to mount an encrypted disk image:
Code: sudo losetup -f Which tells what loop back device block is available Then I'd type:
Code: sudo losetup -e aes /dev/loop0 /home/user/crypt.img and then enter the device's password
Code: sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/loop0 /media/crypt I've tried this in 10.10 and it hasn't been working (I can't remember if I did anything in 10.04 to make it work). I've installed the loop-aes-utils package and restarted my machine. Every time I try the 2nd step, after entering the password I get: Code: ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid argument, requested cipher or key length (128 bits) not supported by kernel
my Dad's computer was running quite slow here lately (Running Hardy Heron). I decided to go ahead and run all the software updates, and had it go ahead and update the OS as well. Well, the install went fine, but upon booting, it crashes to busy-box with the dreaded "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/########## not found error". I found that if I waited for a while, then cd'd to the by-uuid folder, this file eventually showed up. So I figured maybe if I 'exit' from there, it would boot up and find the file. Au Contrair, things get stranger! I end up with a purple screen telling "An Error Occured While Mounting /". Here's what it looks like: This is quite frustrating, I'd like to get it fixed and hopefully save the data he has on there! I remember having the by-uuid error once before after running an update I think, but can't remember how I fixed it! Feels like I just used the 'exit' trick a couple of boots and it was fine??
I want to get my PS3 Eyetoy working as a webcam on my Ubuntu box for use with Skype etc. When plugged in, the camera portion works fine and is recognised immediately. However, I am unable to get the microphone working. It appears to be recognised, but there isn't anything captured from it.
I have removed PulseAudio as it was interfering with my quest to get 5.1 working over HDMI passthrough in XBMC.
I did have it working briefly, but I must have changed something, and now I cannot get it to work for love, nor money!
This is what my system finds:
