(Solved) Mounting errors?

Postby joemartin on Wed Feb 27, 2013 5:49 am

Hello,

I had a Windoze 7 and LM 14 dual boot until yesterday when I used Gparted to delete Windoze 7 partition and then I expanded Nadia's to the entire drive.

Now I receive errors like the enclosed image. Cam someone please help? Hoping I do not have to reinstall...

Do you have a floppy drive in your computer? Those uses disks like these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flopp ... 009_G1.jpg.

Please open the Terminal application from your menu, and type the following command followed by enter key. Copy the output here, see the Terminal's Edit menu for copying text from it.
Code: Select all
cat /etc/fstab

No floppy on pc xenopeek.

it happens when usb or disc is inserted. Output below.

user@user~ $ cat /etc/fstab
# /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/sda5 during installation
UUID=4b07275e-7551-4eb6-bda7-e0b6c84356df / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=abb155cf-ead0-40a0-9bff-de7ce648aca5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

Looks like you are running MATE, and have somehow ended up with support for floppy drive in your fstab file. So press Alt+F2 or open a terminal, and run the command:
Code: Select all
gksudo pluma /etc/fstab

This opens the fstab file in the editor. Remove that last line:
Code: Select all
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

Then save and close the file, and after reboot you should not have this problem again I think.

You still get the floopy drive error? Check the /etc/fstab file again, is the line really gone or somehow reappeared?
