Sometimes when I plug in a USB flash drive, it is mounted to /dev/usb0 instead of /dev/drivename. This poses a problem for me because I have applications that depend on files I keep on flash drives, and having to frequently change the file paths is difficult. I haven't been able to find anything on this topic with a cursory search on Google or through the Debian reference. Heck, I don't even know what /dev/usb0 is (though I would like to learn, in the interest of being less of a noob). This is happening on a Squeeze system running Gnome, so I believe nautilus is what's responsible for auto-mounting my flash drives.
Beyond that, I don't know what other information I should provide; if you need to know something else, ask me (and perhaps tell me how to access that information). Someone on IRC suggested that I didn't have my drives set to mount in /dev/, but I have no idea how I would go about fixing that. If there's a configuration file that deals with this sort of thing, chances are I haven't touched it since installing this system. Debian installer sees usb drive as cd drive, so it adds it in fstab, but with wrong file system options (udf,iso9660) which is not the one your flash drive uses.
We just got a new router and ubuntu wouldn't auto connect to it. When I tried to click on the network manager icon in the panel, it was all glitchy and wouldn't work. Then, I removed it from the panel thinking I could just add it on again. I was wrong. Is there any way I can unremove it?
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.
I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 in a virtual machine, and I'm trying to install the VMware Tools but I can't mount the installer CD: $ sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso9660'
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'm having some trouble with my Ubuntu 10.04. It had been working normally, and now my startup isn't occurring normally. The bootloader shows my Windows install and two different revisions of Ubuntu. Upon letting it load Ubuntu, however, it goes to BusyBox v1.13.3 and says "built in shell (ash)" and presents me with a functioning command line.
I'm comfortable with working on the command line, but does anyone know where to start with this?
Something very strange happened. Firefox was acting a little strange, so I decided to restart my system. When ubuntu started to boot it showed an error that said filesystem failed to mount. It gave me an "emergency" command line and told me ctrl-D would retry the mount. Why would this happen? I haven't modified any system files for a very long time. It told me to run fsck (I think thats what it was) and that seemed to fix the problem. Just curious as to what could have happened. Anyone else have this problem? Anything I should try to fix so this won't happen in the future?
when I try to boot into Ubuntu 9.10 the first thing that happens is this:
Filesystem checks are in progress
I have seen this on a few occasions and thought nothing of it, I have let them complete in the past and was able to boot no problem, but recently that has changed, whether or not I let the checks complete I get the following error:
Mount of filesystem failed.43708f-0498-4699-9fd5-1f52df0bc181 A maintenance shell will now be started.
Any thoughts on recovering this partition or at least gaining enough access to it to backup some data?
I have ubuntu and windows installed on my computer, and sometimes I would need something from the folders I have on windows and I would mount the main hard drive. But now it's telling me "Not Authorized"
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a dell desktop from idk when, its fairly old but regardless it was all running fine until about a week ago I got the infamous:
Mount of filesystem failed. A maintenance shell will now be started. Control-D will terminate this shell and start a new one. admin@ or whatever it is you get the point.
I've been trying all the possible solutions I could find and nothing seems to work. I just want to be able to use this computer. I don't care if I lose files, or have to re-install Ubuntu or any of that, if I can just get the thing running again. I've tried re-installing, and booting from the disc etc. none of which have worked. Basically, I just want to erase Ubuntu and re-install it.
I have had a system crash and have no idea why - I have booted up through the cd and are runnign off that but i need to know how to get the information off the hard drive before I attemp to format and start again.

For some reason I get the following error when trying to mount a partition in my hard drive:Quote:Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:ount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda7,missing codepage or helper program, or other errorIn some cases useful info is found in syslog - trydmesg | tail or soSome more help from dmesg | tail:Quote:

I just flashed/updated my BIOS using the MSI LiveUpdate4 utility under Windows 7. Everything worked the way it was supposted to as far as I can tell. Except that I can no longer boot up under Ubuntu. Windows XP and Windows 7 both boot up fine.
I get the error message:
Mount of filesystem failed A maintenance shell will now be started CONTROL+D will terminate this shell and continue Give root password for maintenance
I never set a root password under Ubuntu so I can't do that. It also said after failing to accept my user/sudo password something about running Fsck manually. So I put in the Ubuntu installation CD and am running it live. It comes with Fsck but there are quite a few options and I don't want to choose the wrong one and end up loosing data.
I have a dual booting newly installed 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 on my machine. It was all fine until today. Now when I boot into Ubuntu, I see the error Failed to mount root filesystem. I cant remember any significant changes during the last session. One thing I remember is I upgraded the system using the update manager which asked me to choose an option for grub boot loader. I opted for its upgradation. After the upgrade, I was able to work with Ubuntu for a few more sessions. Windows XP works very fine.I checked other threads which suggested running fsck, but it did not help. fsck does not report any errors.
I have a 64 bit Karmic system with two drives. One is mounted as / and the other is mounted as /home. I just put the video card from my system into my son's system and got a new video card. (Don't see how it's related but still...)Now I am getting the following message when I turn on the system. code...
I want the users of the other machines, which have accounts in my server, to mount their home directories in the server. I managed to do everything, except that for the moment I can only mount their home directories by being the superuser of the server, a privilege that I don't want to give to the users. Also, I don't want their home directories to be mounted automatically. Thus, from a "normal" filesystem share, I want to: 1-The home directories of user in other machines be mountable in the user areas of the server (I can do that already).
2-I want that the users be able to mount by hand their directories, so that the directories are not permanently mounted. Currently, I can only mount and umount being the superuser of the server. I don't want to give superuser privileges to all server users.
3-I don't want their directories to be mounted on startup (otherwise I could simply add the mounts to /etc/fstab). Thus, does anyone knows how can I give the users the privilege only to mount a specific filesystem?
Is there any way to specify what partitions of my USB Hard drive automount? There's really only one I want mounted automatically, and I've made three partitions. I'd like it so the one mounts, but the other 2 don't. Possible?
im currently useing kubunt 10.10 and i need help to have this drive automounted at bootfor all users./dev/sda1 1 14590 117185536 83 Linux UUID: 32dc7bba-7605-4543-ab73-d8cbb16c0f76i have tested diffrent options but non work.before i could use psydm but that was for a ntfs drive for ext3 it dont work aswell.i find kubuntu @ ubuntu very userfriendly but when it comes to this part its not that goodfor users like me that not are so experienced with linux
I recently formatted my memory stick in windows. It works properly in windows. I have a dual boot with ubuntu 10.04 and the usb automounts in read-only mode. I cannot write anything to the usb stick in ubuntu. sudo chomod does not work.
I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, 11.04. When I first installed, I could plug in my USB thumb drive and it was automatically mounted for me. Lately, this no longer happens... I use the Disk Utility to mount it manually. What I did wrong to lose this automatic mounting?
I was using 9.04 for a while because it was working for me, I decided to upgrade yesterday using the Upgrade button on synaptic to 9.10. Now when I boot I get an error message: Code: chroot: cannot execute /etc/apparmor/initramfs: No such file or directory Mount of filesystem failed. A maintenance shell will now be started. CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and re-try I want to try to fix the problem so I do not have to do fresh installation.
