weird partitions table

  • antoine
Posted: Tue, 09/09/2008 - 11:47
Hello, I'm on Studio 64 for about 6 months and using it a lot for live music. It is really fine with my Edirol FA101. However, I've got 2 quite annoying problems: _when not using my computer for a while (say about 10mn), it is looking for a hd that doesn't exist (again and again and...) and slows down everything. I'm forced to reboot because each time I want to make an action it takes 10sec to do it. The message is : ide : failed opcode was :unknown hda : drive not ready for command hda : status timeout : status=0xd0 {Busy} Maybe it is important that I quote my partitions are only /dev/sda /dev/sda3 dev/sda5 .... Not /dev/hda . That is the first time that my partitions table are not hda : isn't that weird? Here is my /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sda6 /home ext3 defaults 0 2 /dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sda1 /media/sda1 ntfs defaults 0 1 Note the /dev/sda1 is not working at all. _secondly, I cannot mount my external HD in USB (it is NTFS). I already installed ntfs-3g, add modeprobe ntfs in etc/module, tried many things but the Hd appears nowhere (even in Gparted). If anyone has any idea.... Thanks antoine

Hi antoine, earlier I posted this, /dev/sda7 * 9355 9355 8001 83 Linux..........(*sda7*) http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialAdditionalHardDrive.html the link will explain about the boot partition (hda) take note about the option (a) toggle a bootable flag If your going to start over you will wipe this anyway... More a reference for the future. The old 64studio is on sda3, lets see if we can mount it for your user, clean it up and move some files over to back them up... As root. # mkdir /media/sda3 # gedit /etc/fstab add this entry /dev/sda3 /media/sda3 ext3 defaults 0 2 Restart the computer. You should have a link on your desktop, check the mount with. $ df -h You might have to change the ownership of the directory, but first let's see if it works, or "locks up" the system as before. If it works the next step is to try to mount your external hard drive. If it locks up your going to have to start all over again. Good luck, dave

Hi antoine, Great news! check /dev to make sure you have "hda" or "sda" and are not running in ram. paste back $ sudo fdisk -l and your fstab With a bit of luck you just need to setup your config files. It all depends on the contents of /dev/ Go back through the thread and compare all the checks you did before. Good luck, dave.

There is a downloadable live CD that will allow you to share all your partitions on the network without security. Time to break out the trusty crossover cable! http://trinityhome.org Another disk for your PC toolkit - this one ever works in rescuing data off mangled windows PCs (even with NTFS!) Cheers

Hi! I downloaded TRK (trinity) and tried to clone my HD over the net. But I didn't manage. So I installed the sutdio 64 2.1 version on /dev/sda1 without any problem. Once on this version I tried to take a look at my partitions but it answered something like : libhal-storage.c 1401 : info: called libhal_free_dbus_error but dbuserror was not set. process 4219: applications must not close shared connections - see dbus_connection_close() docs. this is a bug in the application. erreur : le périphérique /dev/sda4 n'est pas amovible erreur: impossible d'exécuter pmount So I cannot access my HD (except the /home and system on sda1). More over the DVD is not working at all but is not messing around otherwise (as long as you do not try to use it). What can I do now? Can I change my sda's into hda's? Maybe it would work much better.... Cheers antoine

Hi antoine, Where are the files you want to back up? If it's your home partition and windows is not important. What about keeping your partitions and trying to install 64studio straight into the first partition sda1? With a bit of luck it might just work and then you could backup and format/clean up the other partitions later. At least you will get to see if the DVD/bios is going to screw up again. Installing into partition sda1 won't take that long and it might answer a few questions. If it screws up and you still can't save your files, try another distro on sda1 so you can backup. Then think about a new partition layout. Edit: Double check at the partition part of the install hda or sda. Cheers, dave.

Hi First my boot is not working anymore (blackscreen) unless I'm using the second line. But, in th esecond I've got the same problem as before, that is everything is slow (when I'm typping right now I don't see the letters appearing before 2 seconds). Second, when I installed my USB mouse was connected but I think that was all. Third, I tried with the livecd but Gparted is not installed by default so I could not see anything about partition. So I think I'll have to reinstall if I want clean partitions. How can I make a back up of my files if I cannot connect my external USB HD???? Cheers antoine

Hi antoine, I was going to suggest creating fixed mount points in fstab for the DVD and sda1 so you could backup your files. However, unless I am mistaken everthing seems to be running in ram? e.g. (hda ram9) which would explain why it is always busy. When you installed did you have external usb devices plugged in? I am now thinking reinstall, but it would be nice to know how you installed the first time before you try again. What info did you get from the livecd? Cheers, dave

fdisk/fstab confusion

Hi antoine, Their is no need to think of re-installing just yet. Unplugging the DVD was just an idea, but never mind. For now I am going to work as if the external USB HD is "not" plugged in. Post back the results of: $ ls -la /media So we can see what directories are in there...Then. fdisk/fstab: fdisk is saying that /dev/sda1 is Linux, not ntfs, but it could be wrong. fstab is looking for /dev/sda1 as ntfs. If you have a livecd you could check the partition layout using say GParted on the livecd. If not try this. Before we start backup fstab $ sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab-backup $ sudo gedit /etc/fstab comment out this entry, like this. #/dev/sda1 /media/sda1 ntfs defaults 0 1 or delete the entry. Then ReBoot or ReStart the computer. Then we can see if this error is gone. ide : failed opcode was :unknown hda : drive not ready for command hda : status timeout : status=0xd0 {Busy} Or at least see how the computer performs. Edit:; /dev/ directory contents On this computer 64studio_2.1 $ ls -a /dev/ Shows cdrom cdrw hda hda1 hda2 etc., hdc ..does yours show cdrom cdrw sda sda1 sda2 etc., sdc Cheers, dave

Hi, I didn't get what you ask me in precedent post but maybe I could give you some explanations on the history of my computer. First this is a laptop : so it's hard to disconnect the DVD reader. Second, I installed windows first (maybe that's the problem!!) and afterwards 64 studio. So I think that /dev/sda1 is windows' partition (which I really don't need anymore). What should I do to read my external USB HD??? Even with the acpi=off I've got this problem of hda when I use my Edirol FA101 (Firewire). Should I format everything? (I'd prefer not since I cannot put any file on my external HD!) Thanks again but I don't understand everything antoine

I think he means they you should disconnect the connections on the DVD temporarily to see what happens. It could be an obscure setting in your BIOS causing all the trouble, and the easiest way to check is to see if the system will work without the drive first.

Hi, your /etc/fstab /dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1 Post back the results of running these commands in a terminal. $ df -h $ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst We need to see if the fstab inserts /dev/sda are the same in all three. Be careful if you alter these settings you can make your system un-bootable. Good to have a livecd just in case. $ df -h /dev/?da3 $ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486 root=/dev/?da3 ro vga=791 They all need to be sda OR hda. Take a look at the section: Temporarily Edit the GRUB Menu Try this then, when you reboot and you see your Grub menu, http://users.bigpond.net.au/hermanzone/p15.htm#Temporarily_Edit_the_GRUB_Menu You could enter the temporary settings to match df -h and fstab.

Hi! This could be a problem with acpid, which is trying to access a non existing hard drive on your motherboard. Try adding this to your /boot/grub/menu.lst: - in the line defining the kernel to boot add: acpi=off ( kernel /boot/vmlinuz-xxx root=/dev/xdax ro quiet acpi=off) If this works, disabling acpi altogether is done by editing the file /etc/default/acpid. Comment out the line: MODULES="battery ac processor button fan thermal video" with a hash (#). This might even resolve your ntfs partition issue. Good luck.

thanks

Thank you porisija, the acpi=off seems to make my computer more at ease. Still, I'm not sure on what to do with /etc/default/acpid : # MODULES="battery ac processor button fan thermal video" That is add a # in the beginning of the line??? Ah, and unfortunately it did not solve my HD problem... :( thanks anyway, this is one first good step. antoine
