Re: Emergency Mode after mounting a partition to /home

I don't know why you would want a /home outside the volume group, but did you set the owner:group of that partition :?:

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /media/temp
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/temp
Then paste back ls -lhd /media/*

Re: Emergency Mode after mounting a partition to /home

Now that you're running normally, maybe pasting back sudo blkid will help.

Re: Emergency Mode after mounting a partition to /home

afora,

Your system is either encrypted, which utilizes LVM or straight LVM as indicated with mint--vg-root

Just remove the line in fstab you have mounting /home to another partition and that should allow you to boot normally.

Once you get back to normal you can further investigate what you did.

Re: Which application you use for periodic file archiving (backup)

+1 for rsync.

Check the --backup option on how preexisting files are handled.

No problem with an encrypted installation.

Re: Adding a second hard drive

You ran chown before the filesystem was mounted - the owner:group is stored in the filesystem.

So run sudo chown -R -v $USER:$USER /home/sean/otherdisk with the /dev/sdb1 mounted.

That only needs to be done once :wink:

Hello Eyemhear Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

Your errors are related to encoding and dev/sr0 which is the DVD device, so it's either the media or the DVD drive that's the problem.

Can you burn a USB stick and try that :?:

Re: Low Disk Space Warning

The only thing that jumps out at me is 647G /media

This '/media/fairway is not a mountpoint' tells me that it's a folder in the root filesystem, i.e., not a mounted partition.

So add 647G to the 19G of the / folder and that would be the total space used.
