copying files from my home directory to my USB, MySQL problem, NTFS problem


First, good day to everyone, I have experienced difficulty in copying files from my home files to my USB Flash Disk. After mounting my USB Flash Disk successfully in Red Hat platform. I want some of my files found in my home directory to be copied in my USB. When I perform COPY and PASTE operation, it seems that the USB is ready only. I have also problem in after installing my MYSQL server in this platform and also mounting my Drive C: inorder i can browse it in my linux platform.

The following questions will be addressing to your attention:

1. I want my USB to be not read only device. I have already perform the mounting process successfuly. How do I disabled the restrictions not to be read only device?

2. I am installing MYSQL Server in my RedHat Platform successfully. But the question, how can i run the program?

3. In my PC, I have a dual booting of operating system, in my drive C: i have my Windows XP professional, and Drive D: i have my RedHat operating system. I want my RedHat operating can recognize the drive C, noting also that my Drive C: is NTFS filing system? Or can we view also the Drive D if I am going to used the windows XP? Vice Versa.


Please help.. I am very interested with linux platform.

1. Here is my command in mounting the USB, "mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt", and it is successful since i really see my files in my USB.

2. When I installed the MySQL server, it is also successful but how do i run the application? What command i am going to type inorder to run it? I dont know where it is found or where is the executable file of MySQL is found.

Here is the report when i finally installed the MySQL Server:

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !
To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h localhost.localdomain password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!

The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at
http://www.mysql.com
Support MySQL by buying support/licenses at https://order.mysql.com
Starting MySQL. SUCCESS!


And also when I am installing the SQL Administrator error occurs:

[root@localhost dodong]# rpm -i mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4) is needed by mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1
libstdc++.so.6 is needed by mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1
libstdc++.so.6(CXXABI_1.3) is needed by mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1
libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4) is needed by mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1
libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.4) is needed by mysql-administrator-1.1.6-1

How do i fix the errors above stated?

3. Thanks for the link, i will download it... There are so many links there, what type of .rpm i am going to download... I am using Intel Processor, basically Celeron 2.0 Gigahertz. and my motherboard is ASUS P4VP-MX. Hope these informations will guide you to answer all of my queries.

Thanks in advance, Happy Easter.

some USB stick have hardware lock. Check if you have any switch on it.
The other thing. Does your user have premission to write to /mnt.
If you are root than there should be no problems. Otherwise as root execute
chmod 777 /mnt or pick some dir in your home dir as mount point.

Is this MYSQL administrator a standard package from redhat or have you got this from some where else??

If its looking for some dependencies then you need to clear thse dependencies first. i.e install those packages

Also to start mysql u need to start the service mysql or mysqld,whatever is the name of the script from the /etc/init.d directory

Start that by
service <service name> start
You can also see the variuos mysql binaries in /usr/bin

I had problems writing to my USB memory stick - I found that only ROOT could write to the memory stick, even after doing:
chmod 777 /mnt

I'm not sure why this is, but at least I can write files to the stick by logging on as root.

do you mount under /mnt or /mnt/usb or something like that.
Is your mount point defined in /etc/fstab?
If yes, what does it looks like?

I mount it at /stick directory, by mount /dev/sdb1 /stick
I have done chmod 777 /stick

I did not define mount point in /etc/fstab (I could not work out what this was supposed to do!)

All users can see and copy the memory stick contents, but only root can write to the stick.

both of these work for me on my rh9 , not sure about rh8 though ...

as root run ::

Code:
mount -t vfat -o uid=root,gid=users,umask=0002,dmask=0002,quiet,user,sync,dirsync /dev/sdb1 /mnt/flash
or put line this into your "/etc/fstab" ::

Code:
/dev/sdb1              /mnt/flash              vfat noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0


note :: as for the rest , i guess you have to figure it out yourself ...
