problem with a partition


Hi guys,

I'm not really a newbie Linux user, but I feel like one now.

I have 3 partitions in my laptop:

Code:
S.ficheros     Tamaño Usados  Disp Uso% Montado en
/dev/sda2         83G    16G   63G  20% /
udev             1,5G   4,0K  1,5G   1% /dev
tmpfs            592M   864K  591M   1% /run
none             5,0M      0  5,0M   0% /run/lock
none             1,5G   112K  1,5G   1% /run/shm
/dev/sda3         92G    60G   28G  69% /home
/dev/sda5        119G    87G   27G  77% /media/datos
I had some problems with the /dev/sda5 partition, so I was advised to mount it as read only.
The thing is that now I've being trying to mount it back to normal (writable), but I'm not being able.

The fstab output is this one:

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=b08baef3-c005-4070-aa15-227d73102c66 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /home was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=dbd1d13b-a045-4029-8192-59f96a968680 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2
# /media/datos was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=9c407492-2dcf-4641-b411-328633ccdd2d /media/datos    ext4    defaults        0       2
# swap was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=1440874c-35b7-4dbd-9318-1fa3fc408f45 none            swap    sw              0       0
I don't know what to do. I've seen a lots of post dealing with the "errors=remount-ro 0 1" problem, but I just don't know how to aply them to my case. Can I just manually modify the fstab file? Should it be correct?

I hope you can help me!! Thank you so much!

Isn't this a matter of permissions? The setting in /etc/fstab does not prevent mountin as writable.

Have you tried writing to /media/datos as root?
Please ost output of "ls -l /media/datos".
Also unmount /dev/sda5, sceck permissions again, try writing again.
You could also check with "lsattr /media"

@cruzdelsur: The fstab entry shown for sda5 looks ok (assuming the UUID is correct, check it with the blkid command).

Can you tell us a bit more about the actual problem? The above doesn't help much.

- Are you able to mount and unmaount /dev/sda5 manually (as root)?
- If you are able to mount it, are you able to write to it as root and normal user?
- What is the output of ls -l /media (when sda5 not mountes and when sda5 is mounted)
- What is the output of mount (after mounting sda5).

It also depends on what system you are running.

In fedora /media is a tmpfs filesystem, so on every boot it starts out empty. The fstab mounts require that the mount point exist before mounting, so it is recommended to put such mounts in /mnt, or where ever you have designated the mount point (as long as it isn't a tmpfs filesystem).

Thanks all for your help. I'll try to reply to all of your questions.

@Pingu and @ruuna
I can access the partition as me and as root, but I got different views of it:
This is what I see as normal user: http://bit.ly/ZcEMNq
This is what it should be (and what I see as root): http://bit.ly/XATv6L

I've tried to change the permissions to the /dev/sda5 but I was not able. I copied the files to /home (as root), and then I changed the permissions there (chmod R -777). They seem to change, however, the folder containing the files, don't change. It bothers me, because if I want to modify them, I have to save them somewhere else, because the folder is blocked

@druuna Yes, the UUID is correct, just checked. I'll reply to your other questions later, I have to go!!!

@jpollard I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. However, thanks for that information, it's quite useful since I'm planning to move to Fedora as soon as I fix this partition so I can backup that info!!

Thank you all!!!

So your user simply doesn't have permissisons to the files.
What you do is:
#chown -R <username> /media/datos/
Also, I agree with jpollard: Don't mount it under /media, change it to /mnt/datos.
It's not only Fedora that uses /media that way, what I've seen is that more and more distros do that.
So let the system keep /media for it's own use, mount your own stuff somewhere else.

Sorry, I've been really busy, I haven't had time to reply or do the other things you requested me.
I can only say to @pingu that I tried chown -R but it didn't work. I think it's related to the errors=remount-ro 0 1 that it's shown in fstab.
I'll mount it in /mnt/datos next time then.
Thanks! I'll finish replying tomorrow!

Make sure the directory /mnt/datos has right ownership before mounting!
And that " errors=remount-ro 0 1 that it's shown in fstab." is for / not for /media/datos.

The output of "ls -l" is the same with sda5 mounted & unmounted.
Well, there's nothing really wrong with that - apart from waste of space. Or do you consider it as a backup?

Now let's do this carefully and in good order.
1) Can you write to /media/datos - first you said you could as root, now you say you can't (after trying to open a file, not writing)?
And how did you open the file with a blank in the filename?

Try with & without /dev/sda5 mounted, try as user and as root.
So that's four commands, do it in a very failsafe way:
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda5 (if not mounted)
--- check it!
df
touch /media/datos/Documentos/atest
sudo touch /media/datos/Documentos/atest
sudo umount /dev/sda5
df
touch /media/datos/Documentos/atest
sudo touch /media/datos/Documentos/atest
Post complete output.

2) Unmount /dev/sda5 and mount it manually somewhere else
Code:
sudo mkdir /mnt/datos
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/datos
touch /mnt/datos/Documentos/atest
sudo touch /mnt/datos/Documentos/atest
3) What is your username in this system, is it cheluna?

4) What are the permissions for /media/datos itself?
ls -l /media |grep datos

---Edit
5) If nothing works, check attributes on the files
lsattr /media/datos/*

Is what I put in bold a typo? It should be "chmod -R 777 /home/datos" (or whatever directory).
However, it's a bad idea to use 777 - I realize it's just for testing, but the risk is you forget to change that and then you have lots of world-writable files in your system which is a security risk.
Better change ownership to yourself:
# chown -R cheluna:cheluna /home/datos/

Hi Pingu, thanks for your time and patience!!
I was answering your questions, but then something came to my mind. Does it matter when I do these tests (touch /media/datos/Documentos/atest) that I don't have a folder named Documentos?? do I have to replace with one file I know I have? Or it doesn't matter?

Well, yeah, I put some backup there. I just wanted to say it wasn't my idea to create the /media/datos partition, I saw it somewhere else and it had worked great for a couple of years... But that's not relevant now.

1) Well... let's see... this is quite strange (to me). I told before I could write to /media/datos because I remembered I opened some txt files and save them without problems (as root). Today, when I was replying to you, I checked again, and tried to open a pdf file, and I couldn't open it!! So, I thought I couldn't. My mistake, I should have checked the text file again. Then, I checked again, and guess what happened: I can open/write txt, jpg, zip and png files, but I cannot open pdf, odt, ods, pptx (these are the ones I checked now). So strange.
I didn't opened the file with blank in the filename, I just copy/paste one of the multiple errors that the terminal showed.

Ok, the fun part

I used the folder Music instead of Documentos (because I don't have a Documentos folder there).

Code:

2) I didn't know I could mount it somewhere else just like that!

Code:
cheluna@cheluna-Aspire-5734Z:~$ sudo mkdir /mnt/datos
cheluna@cheluna-Aspire-5734Z:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/datos
cheluna@cheluna-Aspire-5734Z:~$ touch /mnt/datos/Music/atest
touch: no se puede efectuar `touch' sobre «/mnt/datos/Music/atest»: Permiso denegado
cheluna@cheluna-Aspire-5734Z:~$ sudo touch /mnt/datos/Music/atest
3) Yes, the user name is cheluna.

Is what I put in bold a typo? It should be "chmod -R 777 /home/datos" (or whatever directory).
I used the directory when I changed the permissions, I just didn't write the whole "phrase" here, I thought it wasn't very important. I thoutht the important part was the command I used. However, I'll remember to change the permission back, thanks for the warning.
I tried to change the permission to /home, is this correct?
# chown -R cheluna:cheluna /home/
and this happens:
Code:
sudo chown -R cheluna:cheluna /home/
chown: no se puede acceder a «/home/cheluna/.gvfs»: Permiso denegado.
Anyways, I think I can live with that, because now the folders in home (the ones I copied before from /dev/sda5) are not protected anymore. I think I'll copy the remaining folders from /dev/sda5 to home, change the permissions and backup somewhere else later. Then, I'll format again that partition!! I guess it must be done!

About the point number 1), I was thinking... could it be related that I used the Photorec and I tried to restore only some formats? Don't know, just wondering...

Thanks you Pingu!! Let me know what you think please!

Now I really wonder what's going on, I'm very confused!

BUT!

That is a directory and owned by cheluna. "Music" does not exist - but you can write to Music as root???

Are you by any chance mixing up directories? Easily done when you've struggled with a problem for a while.

One thing, when you checked the mountpoints before that "touch..." exercise, you have /dev/sda5 mounted twice.
Code:
/dev/sda5       124741548 91134744    27270292  77% /media/datos
/dev/sda5       124741548 91134744    27270292  77% /mnt/datos
Make sure it's just mounted in one place.
This doesn't solve anything, you can mount a partition in two places but we need everything to be failsafe here.

I'm going to read through your earlier thread, and see if I can come up with something.
BBL!
