Ubuntu :: When Went To Mount D Drive (like Usually Do In Windows) Got The Error Message "directory D: Does Not Exist"?
May 7, 2010
i'm running ubuntu 10.04 and windows vista on my laptop and I installed Dos box on ubuntu quite some time ago, when i went to mount my d drive (like i usually do in windows) I got the error message "directory D: does not exist" i tried to fix it myself but i gave up because it wasnt that important. A while later i read on a webpage that "Linux doesnot employ the concept of drive letters" so i thought this must be the reason for this error message but why would there be dosbox for linux if that was the case
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.
Accidentally the usb plug on my WD "My Book" got halfway unplugged and I didn't notice it. when I rebooted it, it wouldn't read the drive. I tried using G Parted to repair it but no success, it just runs forever accessing the drive and never finishes. (I left it running an entire weekend and it didn't finish) the drive is formated ext3.
When I try to mount the drive in Ubuntu 9.10 it gives this error message:
Strangely if I boot into Windows and use the ext driver I can access the drive just fine. is this something I can fix? if needed I can use Windows to do any repairs.
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I tried using the Windows installer, after not having success burning the ISO to cd, and I received another error message. "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive. DeviceHarddisk3DR3"
Every time I try to empty the waste bin I get dolphin error - 'The file or folder /.local/share/Trash/files/IMGP1676.DNG does not exist'I tried to recreate the file 'IMGP1676.DNG' , deleted it i.e. sent i to the waste bin and then tried the empty waste bin again, although this time it was there and deleted it still reported the same error.du -h .local/share/Trash/files/ 12K .local/share/Trash/files
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 have a server with Fedora 13 with which I would like to get NFS working. I have looked up multiple howto's and tutorials, but I'm having a problem not addressed by any of them.Official how-to, another how-to, and another how-to.I have verified that nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, portmap, and system-config-nfs are installed and running. I have verified that I have, in fact, shared the directory that I want to share, and that the proper permissions are set.
I had to go through some gyrations to get the Belkin wireless N router to allow my server to have a static IP. However, I can ping the server from the nfs client (a toshiba satellite running mint 8), and vice versa. I have (for now) disabled firewalls on both computers. I think I have disabled SELinux on Fedora 13 (for now).When I attempt to connect to the server from the client, the output looks like this:Quote:
aragorn ~ # mount -v 192.168.2.101:/test /home/kelev/test/ mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon mount.nfs: timeout set for Sat Dec 18 12:21:09 2010
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I need to compile "/usr/share/zoneinfo/" to a directory in /home/dir/ so I can use it in a program to find and assign a time zone to users (example: UTC +3 or similar) and I need all available cities and town in it. it seems I should be able to do that with "zic" but what I found and tried does not work. I needed examples and I found the only info giving examples comes from: [URL]... Trying the 2 first lines verbatim after creating the "test-tz" directory gives an error that was to be expected although I use the distro used in the example, this is because the directory "australasia" does not exist but directory "Australia" does.
I should be able to extract the info mentioned above is correct?
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.
I am migrating an application from HP-UX to Redhat Linux and I have some files of scripts. In one of the script files I have the line /pylive/smartPAY/spserver/scripts/sp.con which is the correct path and file name for an existing file. However I get the message "No such File or Directory/pylive/smartPAY/spserver/scripts/sp.con" The script worked fine in HP-UX, why not in Redhat Linux?
I am using 11.3 on one machine and 11.2 on the other (a netbook). 11.4 won't install on either and 11.3 on the netbook fails to install as well.
I am using the same setup as I have always used when both systems ran 11.2 (details below) but now I can only mount a drive in one direction. In the other direction the mount command gets stuck with no error message until it eventually times out. I can ping and ssh the machines from each other without difficulty.
Even in the direction in which the mount apparently works (11.2 mounting a drive on the 11.3 machine) when I try to copy files across nothing actually happens.
exportfs -a was run successfully on the exporting machine, and nfsserver is running on both machines as does nfs client.
The exporting machine is 192.168.1.102 (eeelinux) and the other machine is 192.168.1.101 (nina).
Details: The /etc/exports file on the exporting machine (192.168.1.102) looks like this: eeelinux:/home/naima # more /etc/exports # See the exports(5) manpage for a description of the syntax of this file. # This file contains a list of all directories that are to be exported to # other computers via NFS (Network File System).
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.
when I connect my iphone (3GS, 4.3.3) to Fedora 15 it gives me this error: Unable to mount iphone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus). The weird thing: after looking in var/log/messages it appears that it is trying to be used by NetworkManager. And when I lookin NM, i can see iPhone as an ethernet device (cable unplugged).
I have a computer running Ubuntu 10.10. I am using it to share many hard drives connected to it. I am using Samba. I have successfully shared many folders to one Windows user. I am attempting to share other folders within the shared folders to another user as read only but have not had any success. When I attempt to connect to one of the shares from another computer running Ubuntu 10.10, logged into an Administrator account with the same username and password which I setup on the Samba share I get the error: "Unable to mount location" "Failed to mount Windows share"
I know that it is possible to mount ext filesystems from windows using either extfsd or extIFS drivers. What I want to do is, after mounting it to a drive letter with the driver, to further mount it to, for example, the "my documents" directory. The thing is, disk management in windows 7 won't recognize the ext partition so it won't let me mount.
I am not ready to upgrade my Fedora 13 to 14 yet, but I wanted to test some things in 14. So, using the live CD, I installed Fedora 14 under Virtualbox. But some things are not working and the Virtualbox Help files aren't helping. I have added my Fedora 13 /home/jjj/ folder as a shared folder with the name Home_jjj. The instructions say that in Fedora 14 I must mount it with "mount -t vboxsf share mount_point." So (as root in Fedora 14). I used the command "mount -t ext3 vboxsf Home_jjj /media" but I got an error message. I tried varying the command different ways, but haven't hit on the secret mount syntax. I would really just like to add it to Fedora 14's fstab file to make it auto-mount. I have an external monitor, which Fedora 13 sees, but Fedora 14 cannot see it. The main display for Fedora 13 is 1680x1050. Fedora 14 installed itself with 1024x768 as the max. I tried changing it with xrandr -s, but the only resolutions xrandr will take are 1024x788, 800x600 and 640x480. How can I make it at least, say, 1400x1050?
I just having to do a fresh install and get the following message to close after setting up partitions and on clicking write to disk:
Failed to mount "524M Volume" Method "Mount" with signature "ssas" on interface "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" doesn't exist.
Only option under message is close button. I'm using Fedora 14 xfce 32bit live CD. The install seems to carry on normally until done but then when I check the partitions I've setup I seem to only have the origonal uneditted default partitions.
This is on Debian Lenny 5.0.7 with a LXDE desktop. Using Root Terminal I have just been trying to mount a SATA drive NTFS file system using the command: mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /dev/
unfortunately the /sdb1 should of been 'sdc1', I think, and what's happened is that my username and files have been moved somewhere else. PCMan File manager has ceased to work and open applications have ceased to be able to save files.
How do I discover where they went, and how do I restore them back to the original place of debian:/home/username/ ?
I'm about 8 hours in to learning Linux/Debian and desperately trying leave behind about 15 years of Windows use for something better. I'm used to troubleshooting electronics/hardware/all manner of things but the syntax here is, at the moment, a slippery slope.
I have a problem in my ubuntu 10.01 that it can't load a drive/volume in ubuntu. When I tried, it said: "Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock". And when I boot my pc with 'Windows', it said : "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" under a blue screen. What can I do to solve this problem?
I have a single harddisk partitioned with Ubuntu Maverick and Windows 7 installations. I installed Windows first and then Ubuntu, after resizing partitions and adding a new one for Ubuntu. Win7 did not appear in the Grub2 boot menu. I added it (sda3), but on rebooting, I get the message "BOOTMGR is missing/Press Ctrl+Alt_Del to restart".
I understand that Win7 might have put its boot manager in another partition, and sda1 had FAT. I added sda1 as another grub2 entry, but when I try that, I get the error message "Windows Boot Manager/ Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause... Status 0xc0000225/ Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible." Attached are fdisk and parted outputs; and the grub2 files I created. How do I get Windows 7 to boot up?
been a fan of openSUSE for years now and peridocially go back and forth between Suse and Windows. However, I'm still an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to this stuff. Well, I bought a netbook (Acer Aspire ONE) several months back and loved Win 7 (a first for me). However, like all Windows, they all go down the crapper. So I'm wanting to completely wipe out Windows and go all Suse on my netbook.So I downloaded KDE Live and "burned" it on my USB. BTW, the image writer that are in the directions only writes, .raw files not .iso. I had to use a third party software.I then went into my BIOS and put the USB drive first on the booting list, and then restarted. Right off the bat I get the error message.Could not find kernel image: gfxbootAll I want to do is install openSUSE on my netbook
