eth0:no IPv6 routers present


When I try to open my filesystem I get the following error message:

Unable to mount 496GB filesystem error mounting:mount:wrong fs type, bad option,bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so. What does all this mean? Everything had worked so far until now. I'm using Debian V 7.8.0

Thanks for any help I can get

Gary

What is your mount command or any relevant fstab entry?

Hi Jeremy,

Debian uses mount as the mount command.

Also, I entered my username as slygary, but for some reason it came out slaygary. I would rather be sly than slayed.

I hope I gave the right answer, I've only been using lunux for about a month. I was one of those window guys

Thank you,
Gary

Enter the following command into a "Terminal" or command entry screen:
Code:
df -h
This will show you all the partitions you currently have mounted.

When you enter the mount command, what do you actually type into the system?
It might be something like
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sdb2 some-path...
where some-path is a directory such as /mnt/some-directory.

However, there are many variations possible.

Why not add the correct entry to /etc/fstab so the file system will be properly unmounted when you shut the machine down as well as being auto-mounted on startup?

mounting problem

Thank you for your help, but now I can't find my harddrive 910G It has gone misssing. I've tried what you suggested, but I think I don't know what I'm doing. The sdb2 is not showing up in my dev file either. Everything else is working on this computer though.

Gary

well what the heck dose a hard drive partition have to do with ipv6

is this drive on a REMOTE server you have to log in to ?
if is is a USB3 or sata the web address ( ipv4 or 6 ) has nothing to do with it

Quote:
Unable to mount 496GB filesystem error mounting:mount:wrong fs type
What is the command you used / are using ?

the "wrong fs type" is the "-t ??? " you used in the terminal
-t vfat
-t ext4
-t NTFS-3g

for a USB3 drive like say my WD 4 TB drive
most os's should AUTO mount it by you only pluging it in

and gnome3 and KDE4 on Debian 7.8 ( or 8 testing) should just auto mount it
for a USB drive run
Code:
su -
lsusb
your usb drive should be listed
if it is then
Code:
su -
fdisk -l
that will output ALL the partitions on every drive

one of them will be the usb drive



or

is this a remote NETWORK drive
if so
is it a share with MS windows ?
if so is it NTFS and using AD and samba ?

If the /dev/sdb2 file doesn't exist then this means that you don't have a a second disk (b) with a second partition (2) on it.

Please post the contents of your /etc/fstab file and any commands you use to perform manual mounting.

In addition please post the result of the following command:-
Code:
sudo blkid
BTW Is your second disk a USB disk?
