Ubuntu :: Message Coming That No Media Device Found For Live File System
Aug 15, 2010
I faced a problem while installing ubuntu 10.04 on mylaptop;i downloaded the ubuntu from ubuntu official site. Problem: message coming that no media device is found for live file system. My Laptop configuration : 2.2 ghz core 2 duo processor, 320gb hdd in this matter and can let me know me how can i install ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop.
I'm usin Ubuntu 9.10 and installed it a couple of months ago. I was trying to figure out how to use Synaptic to fix some dependancy errors I was getting, and set it to remove a certain package. It said it had to remove other packages as well to do this, well that ended up being Gnome and a whole bunch of other stuff. Silly me.So I was alright without having Gnome and went back to writing simple c++ from this book. I wrote a program to output a range of numbers and ran it but had written it wrong, so it would have ran on for hours. So I just killed the power and tried to start the comp again.
This time after the Dell boot screen it would tell me my system battery was low and strike F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup. Hit F1 and Im told that a file wasnt found and then it goes to the Ubuntu loading screen (The logo and some dots underneath) and then a black screen. Nothing else.I figured I needed to reintall and dont have any CDs so tried to make a live CD and this time when I try to boot from USB device get a "Missing Operating System" error.Its set to boot from USB device before harddrive. Need to know what to do to install again/recover old install.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop running on Windows 7, I just download the iso file for Fedora 14 desktop edition, the live media download, and burned it to a new CD-RW, I can't seem to locate the file I need to boot it.
I am trying to Upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 using Preupgrade. My system downloads the the Upgrade and tries to install it but returns a message "Root of the previous system not found". I would really like to fix this problem but dont know how.
I am on Ubuntu 10.10 and attempting to use my C-Media USB Headphone Set for use with Skype. It used to work at some point; now it just isn't doing anything at all. Ubuntu still recognises the hardware but no sound is coming out at all.
I am using ubuntu 8.04. I played an mp3 in totem & meanwhile moved that file to another location. Still I can move slider in totem to rewind or forward the song. Only after the song has been played completely I get message 'location not found'. Does that mean totem copies song into RAM so that it does not have to trouble hard disk for access during entire duration ?
I downloaded linphone 3.30 using mozila and tried installing. while giving the command ./configure it was successful and next giving the command make gives me a error message make file is not found. but makefile.am and makefile.in is already available in the current working directory.
I have given the link of the pastebin for ./configure command and make command..
I have a 20TB filesystem, xfs formatted. The filesystem has been mounted with the inode64 option, and I now need to NFS export it. NFS doesn't like the inode64 option at all. The NFS clients cannot access any of the directories with inode numbers exceeding the 32bit limit. They get the "Stale NFS file handle" message. I have tried to attach the filesystem to a RHEL5.3 system, and after turning on the no_subtree_check option in /etc/exports on the server, it all works fine. No changes were needed on the clients.
The problem is that I need to get this to work on a RHEL4.4 system. Unfortunately I cannot do any test on that system yet, I then did a quick test on a RHEL4.3 system... and it didn't work. Even using the no_subtree_check option was on any help. I am afraid that this will not work on the RHEL4.4 system either. How to get the inode64 xfs filesystem NFS exported on a 2.6.9 kernel?
I install Debian on a Power book g3 and i need the right click function. I try mouseemu but it give me an error: open: No such file or directory No uinput device found! Make sure the uinput module is loaded or CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT is compiled in kernel. if there are other way for the right click function?
I'm setting up a Backup & Media server, which will be running debian. I will setup a small HD or SSD/CF card for the OS, and a MD raid for the data drives.The total size of the raid will be either 3 or 4TB, depending. Now, I need to figure out what filesystem to use on top of this raid.My criteria is as follows:
1. Support for large files. I can't imagine anything larger than about 1.2TB, but the 4GB of, say, fat32 just isn't enough.
2. Robust. I don't want it falling apart on me; nothing too unstable.
3. (and this is most important): Good Undelete support. I got burned recently when a software glitch managed to rm -rf my EXT4 drive. All the file data is still there, but all the metadata is gone. I *DO NOT* want that happening with this. I want to be able to do a "RM / -RF", immediately unmount it, and then recover *all* of the deleted data. Obviously, when data is overwritten it's overwritten, but I don't want to lose all my metadata if a "RM -RF" happens. FAT-32 is the model I'm looking at: You can usually recover deleted files if anything happens to the drive.
So, what are my options?EXT2 looks like a possibility. EX4 is *clear out*, unless there's some nice utility/mode that keeps a backup of all deleted metadata etc.
I am getting an error message at step 5 of 8 in the installation process. I am using Ubuntu LiveCD. The caption of the error is 'No root file system' and the message itself says 'No root file system is defined.Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I enclose a screenshot of this. I had also problems with booting Ubuntu and Windows after installing Ubuntu to an external hard disk so I probably have to also create a new boot menu (may be it is differently called, 'grub' possibly, I am not really sure).
I am trying to compile meep (http://ab-initio.mit.edu/wiki/index.php/Meep) with MPI (openmpi) on a RHEL machine. I was able to build the binaries, but when I try to execute it, this error message comes up. I don't know which file libguile is missing. It was installed from the official rpm repository cdrom.
ERROR: In procedure dynamic-link: ERROR: file: "libguilereadline-v-17", message: "file not found"
formatted a 64g usb memory stick with gparted use fat32 file system and recognized full 64gig drive plug in and is on /media/usb this is what i got on my fstab UUID=24AF-1E67 /media/The-Hive defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0 i want all user access to this memory stick to write delete and execute. am I going nuts i cant make it to do that..
There is a centralized FTP server which are accessed by clients to develop some web development project and to achieve this the clients are using ftp service. The problem is when they are trying to copy any files and directories they are getting the following error: "Message reported from the file system: FTP copy not supported,use move instead" I've checked all the permissions and they are all OK. I don't know why this is happening. they can create and move files and folders but can't copy files and folders.
So I wanted to copy a copy-prod disk and decided to try dd after reading some information about it. after running dd for about a minute, I got a warning that I was low on disk space. I stopped dd and found I had only 200 MB left of 200 GB free space (originally having over 220 free). I deleted the 1/2 finished backups but cannot find the data which was written to the drive. It is hard to think that that much data could be written with my slow pc in under one minute.here are the commands I performed if that helps locate the data:
What i really need to know is if there is a way to access a Ubuntu file system on a hard drive from a live CD. When i acess it now it just shows the Windows files on it, and i cant access the Ubuntu partition. What happened was this: I was trying to install Ubuntu on an external hard drive. I moved all the settings to the Hard drive so i didnt think it would affect my other drives. I mustve missed one of them because insteading of loading GRUB like it normally does, it came up with GRUB error 21 and did nothing. I tried to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally decided to unplug everything except the external and install it from there, so id atleast have a functioning desktop. As it turns out, my comp doesnt suport USB booting. So the only way i can use my computer is by Live CD. I was trying to fix things so i had both hard drives power supply unplugged. being slightly drowsy from staying up late that night, I plugged them in while my computer was on. the first one went in just fine, no problems. The second one though, also my master drive, i was having troubles pluging in. while i was turning it to fit in, it made a big spark and shocked my master drive. That drive had my MBR and Windows on it. Now It cant find a MBR, and i cant access the ubuntu partition on my slave drive. Is there any way to save this?? im 99.9% sure ive screwed myself over hardcore epically, but im hoping to save at least 1/2 my data.
I have even tried to run the Live CD and All I get is (initramfs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system.With out the CD in the drive I get, Try (hd0,0): EXT2.I have use of the second CD I made for a friend and I have a LIVE version running now.
I have a 4 core Sandy Bridge Win7-64 system running Parallels Desktop 4. I created a new VM with a CDROM connected to the 11.04 ISO. It perks for a little while showing some Ubuntu stuff then I get the console message "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system".I don't get this. It is obviously booting from the CDROM. I'm guessing it does not like the unformatted disk. Why doesn't it offer to format the disk of start the installation prcess? Is it something else?
I am as much of a noob as you could be. I have trying to install ubuntu for 2 days now, I have tryed several versions and several of mint, but I always get this message ending with 'Unable to find a medium containing a live file system' when I start the installation process from the disk.
Background info: So I installed 11.04 32 bit and it messed my computer up therefore after trying everything I got rid of it, now I've been trying to install the 10.04 long support version from the official ubuntu website and it doesn't seem to be working. Neither the 32 bit version or the 64 bit. To convert the iso etc. etc. I used "Universal-USB-Installer-184.108.40.206" which is reccommended from the ubuntu website and it didn't work. So I tried "unetbootin-win-549" which a friend recommended to me - didn't work either.
Main problem: The menu loads up when I turn on the computer and whether I click on the install ubuntu, or try ubuntu from usb option - both go to the ubuntu screen where the dot's under "ubuntu" flash for about 2 minutes before taking me to a screen where the following message appears: Code: (initframs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system And after about 5 seconds intervals, messages similar to this appear for about 7 or 8 times:
Code: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 7. error -110 new high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address 8 Each time they appear the parts which differ is the numbers from the text above i.e. usb 2-3....
I'm new to this and I'm sure I've just gone and done something silly. I used pendrivelinux.com's live usb creator to install ubantu 11.04 on my USB. I tried booting my laptop with this, and i get an error message saying "unable to find a medium containing live file system" and I cant get any further than that. The laptop I am using is a Dell XPS with an i7 processor and 6 gigs of memory.
