Ubuntu :: Fresh 9.10 Install Reboot Error No Device - Mount Partition Mount: Can't Fin?
Jun 24, 2010
what now trying to mount partition get this error this is the partition ubuntu 9.10 is installed on and upon reboot error no device with a long string. mount: can't find /dev/sda6/mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
so now that I believe I've successfully mounted the partition how do I direct the bootloader to this partition /dev/sda6 on /media/11076e45-e27d-470b-bb6d-6894f7809a0c type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit)
I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.
I'll start a fresh installation of a debian stable server and I would like to use LVM on this. So, I started to read lots of documents about LVM and found different flavors on partitioning with it. I'm thinking in a partition schema which might use LVM for those mount points that tends to grow in time, for instance:
I've just bought a HP mini compaq laptop. The laptop doesn't have any CD/DVD "reader". So i was forced to download the .iso file to install ubuntu in addition to Windows XP that was present when i bought it. To do so i used UNetbootin, and i used my only hard disk as a live CD. But when i wanted to install ubuntu, they told me to create a partition. The problem is that i can't. I have only one partition sda1(nfst) which covers the whole stockage memory, and an empty space(8Mo). I can't acceed to any of the resizing or modifying options to edit the nfst partition. The only options are manage flags and umount. When i click on this one, they tell me : # umount /cdrom : cdrom is busy.
I virtualized a PC with VMware vCenter Converter. But when I boot my virtual PC, I have an error.I found this link but I can't mount /dev, /sys and /proc. I have this error message : mount: /dev is not a block device.
trying to update a 11.1 installation. As I start the installation I get a message "openSuse 11.0 partition /dev/sda5 Change the mount-by to any other method for all partitions." Also the message said go back and reboot and make the change. What is this all about, how do I do this.
I have 2 internal drives. One is for the OS and one is for the Data. I tried to get the Data drive to mount automatically at login using some crap I found on a linux blog. Safe to say it didn't work and now I can't mount it with the OS on the OS Drive.
It mounts from a live CD and all the data is perfectly safe. When I try to mount the drive I get this error message: "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/data" What have I done wrong and how can I make it mount again? Preferably this time at login.
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've tried everything to solve this, been browsing the forums for the last 2 days and no solution has worked.So I got a new netbook (Samsung n150 dated 03/2011) it had ubuntu 10.10 installed but I already use ubuntu on my macbookso I'm trying out knoppix, I booted it from usb and ran the HD installer, it gets through all that and then installs grub ok, but when I reboot I get "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition"Things I already tried:*Grub setup (grub, root (hd0,1), setup (hd0), quit) and every variation.*I tried removing the usb and setting the HDD back to first boot in the bios andthen changing the menu.lst accordingly, still I get error 17.Below is the information just after boot with the usb still plugged in and set as first boot in bios.fdisk -l
why I'd be receiving this error. I have created a partition and filesystem and put the label in fstab. Everytime I reboot the server it is unable to mount the filesystem. However I am able to mount it manually.
I'm not really sure this is the right category for this post...
I've been thinking and reading but I really don't find a solution, and this is why I decided to post here. I'm not a newbie using Linux but I know absolutely nothing about nfs and related stuff. If explanations are not clear/precise I'm sorry and absolutely open to explain myself better (I'm really desperate, at this point).
I'm running a Debian in a VirtualBox inside a RHEL5. To supply space to the virtual machine I'm trying to mount a disk (? maybe not?) that I created in the RHEL.
In RHEL: I created a directory /some/path/dir and I granted access to it from the VM (edit /etc/exports file and restart the nfs service)
In Debian: I created a directory to be used as mounting point (mkdir /other/nice/path/dir) and I tried to mount (mount -t nfs -v redhat:/some/path/dir /other/nice/path/dir). What happens next is the following:
mount.nfs: timeout set for Thu ... mount.nfs: text-based options ... mount.nfs: mount(2): Input/output error mount.nfs: mount system call failed
Now, this Input/output error is too vague to trace where the problem is, but I really have no idea about how to go more in depth (are there logs somewhere? What should I look for? ... ...).
i have installed nfs server on my redhat machine.when i want to mount shared data from client(suse)machine the following error occur."mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '10.3.31.146:/home/usbtest' failed: System Error: No route to host"
I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my friend's laptop. The biggest problem is getting his iPhone 4 to mount. On libimobiledevice.org it shows a cool video of a guy managing his iPhone with Linux thanks to libimobiledevice. libimobiledevice.org also says libimobiledevice supports the iPhone 4. But when he plugs it in, he gets an error that says:
Quote: Unable to mount location: Unhandled Lockdown error (-5) It's a serious issue and needs to be resolved ASAP. ***EDIT*** If this is a hardware topic, any mods can feel free to move it.
I've tried everything to solve this, been browsing the forums for the last 2 days and no solution has worked. So I got a new netbook (Samsung n150 dated 03/2011) it had ubuntu 10.10 installed but I already use ubuntu on my macbook so I'm trying out knoppix, I booted it from usb and ran the HD installer, it gets through all that and then installs grub ok, but when I reboot I get "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition"
Things I already tried: Grub setup (grub, root (hd0,1), setup (hd0), quit) and every variation. *I tried removing the usb and setting the HDD back to first boot in the bios and then changing the menu.lst accordingly, still I get error 17. Below is the information just after boot with the usb still plugged in and set as first boot in bios.
I am having problems with grub. Originally I was having trouble installing Service Pack 2 for vista and I made the fool's mistake of changing the active partition in disk management from the boot partition to the windows partition. This blew up grub. After restarting I was dumped at the grub terminal i.e.
so I thought okay, I will just reinstall grub. I ran setup (hdx,y) but now when I restart first of all the splash screen is different, rather then the blue background with the big words in white, fedora 11, it's black and I get a error saying unable to read any images. I can see the different OS' I have on the grub screen but attempting to load any of them gives me
error 17 cannot mount selected partition.
I am currently running the Fedora 11 xfce spin live cd. From the terminal here, here is some information. sda3 is my fedora 11 partition I am not sure maybe it is because of ext4 but I can't seem to mount it using mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/xxxxx.

i ran into this issue only because i wanted to learn. I was reading the book, linux troubleshooting and decided to give it a try.
1) I went to /boot/ and moved vmlinuz (kernel file) to my home directory. (/root/) 2) I booted, it didnt boot (as expected) and now the troubleshooting part begins. 3) i entered to grub config mode using c 4) When i press root (hd0, (tab) it gave me 2 partitions. hd0 which is my boot partition hd1 which is my '/' partition. Please keep in mind its LVM and not a physical partition 5) If i do this, root (hd0,1), and press boot, it gives the following error Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
During my research i found that, LVM is not supported by grub, so kindly confirm me this ? is this the reason i am not able to access my root partition ? i am doing this on vmware so no issues, but just for the sake of learning, can someone tell me some way of restoring it without using any rescure disk (livecd, liveusb etc) ?
I have a Dell VOSTRO laptop that I use for windows Vista. I have an old disk drive that I put into a USB case and now I want to use that for a Debian system. I do not want to install grub on my laptops HDD, if I do I need to have the USB HDD plugged in everytime I boot and i find that a real pain. I installed Debian on the USB drive with no problem and when it asked where I wanted to install GRUB I picked the USB drive ( I think ). Now when I interupt the boot and tell it to boot from the USB drive grub comes up with the correct menu but when I pick Debian I get the following messages:
Booting 'Debian GNU/Linux Kernel 2.6.26-2-amd64' root (hd1,0) Filesystem type unknown partition type 0xde kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-amd64 root=/dev/sdb1 ro quiet Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
When I run lilo (/sbin/lilo), it messes up my /boot partition. Next time I try to mount it after running lilo, I get an error: "mount: Stale NFS file handle" (I define -t ext2). My /boot partition is ext2, mounted locally, and not nfs. Then I do fsck /dev/sda1, and I get several: Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (7665, counted=5063). Fix<y>? I say yes to all and it works normally afterwards. This happens only after I run lilo. Lilo is installed in MBR.
Here is relevant configuration: Code: root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# cat /etc/lilo.conf append=" vt.default_utf8=0" boot = /dev/sda
I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
I was looking to do a fresh install of 11.2 and use my home partition from 11.1. During the Gnome Live version I wanted to see how suse would configure my computer. It recognized everything fine, except it didn't show my current home partition which is ext 3. Because Opensuse 11.2 has switched to ext 4 as default for root and home? I was hoping to use my old home with 11.2. Is there any way to make the switch without losing my settings? During the live install the partitioner didn't use my current home partition, it was going to make a new one.
So I opened up the partitioner in yast to see why it didn't use my current home and it shows no mount point for my home ext 3. Would changing the mount point on my ext 3 partition to home make the 11.2 installer recognize this as my home to use? Or will I have to copy my current home. Paste it elsewhere. Delete old home. Use unallocated space as ext 4. Paste old home on new ext4 to have the 11.2 installer recognize this as my home. So, current home is ext 3. 11.2 installer wants to make a new home on ext4. How do I use my current home settings? I haven't installed yet just tried a live run.
