Gentoo=> Mount point does not exist.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2010
After tiring of Ubuntu, I've decided to try something a little more daring. I've always wanted a nice Gentoo box, but the last time I did it I ended up with a desktop system that had no sound. I have to admit that the portage system was nice, however.
Well, I'd like to install Gentoo onto my old Thinkpad T20. The problem is that the onboard nic is dead and I only have an old Dlink DWL-G630 to access the network with. Given that it's so old, most live cds have no problem with it (including WPA2 encryption). However, Gentoo does not support wireless off of it's CD/DVD builds. I've been reading the scant posts about using a random live CD in an effort to have access via wireless while installing but again I have hit a snag. It appears that regardless which live CD distro I use, I get to the point of:
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
...and I receive the error that the mount point does not exist. I'm a little rusty when it comes to tinkering here but am I missing so
[SOLVED] Point Linux Installer error: Critical error! Source squashfs file does not exist!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2014
After booting into Point Linux 2.3 on a USB, I get this error when I clicked on install. "Critical error! Source squashfs file does not exist!". What must I do to overcome this?
/tmp/cdrom does not exist with RH 6.3 kickstart %post
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 11, 2012
I have a working redhat 5.8 Kickstart that mounts the /tmp/cdrom to copy files to the HDD in the %post section. The same %post with redhat 6.3 does not work. What's changed with 6.3?
Is /tmp/cdrom called something else? Googling around I read
its an anaconda issue in that it ejects the disk prematurely. Could that be?
"mount: special device /tmp/cdrom does not exist"
the KS post
mkdir -m 777 -p /mnt/cdrom
mount -t iso9660 /tmp/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
cp -fpr /mnt/cdrom/iqcustom /mnt/sysimage/tmp
"ALERT! /dev/disk/byuuid/<uuid>does not exist" error after upgrading
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 13, 2009
Found several posts on this subject but not getting anywhere.
I grabbed Damn Small Linux and can boot into DSL fine, but can't seem to find my hdd.
I'm pretty sure it's /dev/sda1, but fdisk -l /dev/sda returns "cannot open /dev/sda". Same for /dev/hda, /dev/hdb, /dev/sda[1-5], etc.
Bit of background:
Had an old P3 running Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty server version and did a physical to virtual migration (ESXi), which has been running flawlessly for a few weeks (had to fiddle with NICs a bit, but everything else worked fine).
Decided I should upgrade to the latest 8.10 LTS and as per Ubuntu's upgrade docs, was planning on doing an incremental upgrade to Gutsy first, using do-dist-upgrade.
Went ok until I'm assuming the kernel was updated (it asked me to restart) and am experiencing an error as described in the subject line of this thread.
My GRUB menu is showing two kernels and recovery mode options, neither gets me anywhere.
Debian Squeeze Connman Does not see network Interfaces
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 24, 2011
Howdy All -
I'm using Debian Squeeze with backports turned on and I've installed connman and it cannot see my wireless networking interface. I know my wireless card has a working driver because I have WICD on the same system and it connects just fine.
I am using the Enlightenment desktop though and it only integrates with the connman wireless manager - so I would prefer to use this instead of WICD. Anyone have any ideas on how I can get connman working? What extra configuration needs to be done after installing?
I added my user to have the same permissions as root to the /etc/dbus-1/system.d/connman.conf file and I added my tiwlan0 to /etc/network/interfaces as a DHCP connection with no changes in functionality :-/. Been searching around online and reading man pages for the last couple days with no good results. Any input would be awesome!
Thanks in advance,
root user directory does not exist, root password not recognised
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2010
Hi all. I no longer have access to my root desktop. On a session I attempted to change the root username but i apparently assigned it a wrong directory that does not exist. When I rebooted with my new root username, i was instead recognised as a simple user (no root privileges). I tried the console to change to "old" root but root password is not accepted and there is no way to access to sudoer files. it seems that inserting a new username requires root privileges and i am back to square one.
Simply logging with old root username and password after restart gives me a blank screen with nothing on it and cannot even reboot.
What can i do to regain my root access? Thanks in advance for your help!

ia32libfirefox does not exist, package manager broken
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 13, 2007
Swiftweasle32 depends on ia32-lib-firefox, but that package does not exist. Synaptic and apt say that they are broken. Swiftweasle32 works just fine without that package that does not exist in the repositories. How can I get the package manager not to complain about a missing package that does not exist and still keep Swiftweasle?
Waiting until a process does not exist, or time out (I failed at it)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2012
Hello, I have been doing some BASH scripting, or, well, failing at it.
I am trying to make a Shell Script that Tells this process to stop, then waits until either the process has stopped, or until 1 minute has passed. After that it restarts it.
I can tell the process to stop, and restart it fine. The only part I am having trouble with is when I am trying to wait until either the process has stopped or 1 minute has passed.
This is the only java process that runs. (it is running in a screen)
Before this code in the script, I am using a command in the script through screen that tells the java process to save everything, and shut down. That saving and shutting down usually takes 30 seconds, and I want to get the new process up as soon as I can. Why I also have the 1 minute time out is that if, for some reason, the process is frozen, It will kill the process as well, instead of continuing to wait forever.
Here is my code for doing it:
Cannot boot into new install of ubuntu 13.04 dev/disk/byuuid/... does not exist
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2014
I did a fresh install, made with unetbootin on windows 7, USB 2.0 key (32GB) of Ubuntu 13.04 (64bit) install image, on to another USB 2.0 key (16GB).
In fact I did several installs, using default partition allocation and custom (selecting "something else" and allocating root and swap) but in all cases result is the same:
After prompt to reboot screen with flashing cursor comes up and then after a delay message (see attached screenshot) with the most important problem information in it being:
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/353f3494-0d06-4e7f-9e84-668893d2d1a0 does not exist,
Dropping to a shell!
I have attempted the boot-repair tool as per official tutorial using my installation USB key ("Try Ubuntu without installing"), it ran through successfully and produced following url:
however it did not resolve the issue.
Looking at the output and looking at the grub script (accessed at boot) I can see that uuid being referenced is a correct one.
