I was running a music app to listen to music on my F16 box, and got an error that it ran out of memory, so I rebooted it (via "restart"), and it booted back up fine, however the two drive mappings I have in /etc/fstab that mount to a Windows box would not mount.
im new to linux and i installed fedora on my brothers netbook, the eeepc 1000hd
when i i clicked the box that asked me something about encryption witht he hardrive. it was the only way it would isntall.
now the problem is that want to install another linux on the the pc but it wont pick up the flashdrive.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card. My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP. The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.
New to the world of Linux, everything was going well on my new-refurbished T-60 when suddenly, in the middle of burning a series of iso images, my cd-rom just stopped working. No matter what I put in there, I get back "Unable to mount location: No media in drive." Additionally, I am now unable to mount a boot volume from startup!
I'm using 8.10 on a Lenovo T-60.
My previous CD rom drive went out recently, so i got myself a new one, after the installation i realized that the drive wont mount, Ubuntu reads the drive and sees it, but won't load any CD's of any kind, saying
"Unable to mount location."
any idea's what i can do to make the computer read CD's?
