Bootup hangs when trying to mount NFS shares
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 11, 2010
I have this in my /etc/fstab:
store:/linux_exe /usr/local nfs4 _netdev,ro,hard,bg,intr 0 0
It mounts OK on the fly (mount /usr/local) but when you reboot, it hangs, presumably forever, saying that "The disk drive /usr/local is not ready, S to skip, M for manual".
Pressing S or M does nothing. I then have to turn the machine off, boot off a CD, mount the HD's / partition and remove the fstab entry before I can successfully boot the OS.
Having looked at various forums, I have tried some different things like removing the "0 0", putting "auto" in the options. Unsurprisingly perhaps, these made no difference.
This behaviour was noticed on 10.04, but having tested it on 9.10 it does a similar thing on that version too, although on that one you can actually enter a shell at the hang point and edit your fstab.
Anyone managed to fix this or workaround it?
Thanks very much
Cannot Mount NFS Share
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 2, 2007
I'm trying to set up a Linux-Linux share. I'm running Ubuntu Feisty on one machine and Ubuntu Dapper (both "Desktop" installations) on the other... attempting to set up each as a server and a client, so I can work in either direction.
In general, I followed a howto at:
with a little help from Google and other howto's here and there.
I've never set up a Linux network before, so I'm a newbie at this. I'm starting to suspect something might be wrong with the nfs programs themselves, but before that, here's some output for anyone who understands these things.
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).
# Example for NFSv2 and NFSv3:
# /srv/homes hostname1(rw,sync) hostname2(ro,sync)
# Example for NFSv4:
# /srv/nfs4 gss/krb5i(rw,sync,fsid=0,crossmnt)
NFS: "mount.nfs no such device" on Chromebook with Wheezy
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 14, 2013
I recently got a NAS setup, and would like to access it from my Chromebook (Acer c710 running Debian Wheezy 7.1).
I've installed: nfs-common nfs-kernel-server nfs4-acl-tools
Portmap doesn't install, and it appears to have been replaced in Wheezy with rpcbind?

ext3 usb hd slow transfer rates (ubuntu/manual mount)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2008
I have an external usb harddisk that's formatted as ext3. I have a setup in which it is manually mounted (have some bad HAL experiences) with a simple 'sudo mount -o noatime -o nodiratime -L [label] [mount point]' command. I have been having some problems with slow transfer rates (more specifically the apttern was usually fast speeds up until the first 60-80 Mb, then snail speed)
On a completely fresh install I tested it and transfer rates in both directions was excellent with a 700 Mb avi file. I then rebooted and now all transfers are horribly slow from the get go. I've check dmesg but all it say when I mount is:
[SOLVED] [ubuntu] how to input stuff from the boot screen?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 3, 2010
I just installed truecrypt and I think it's a great encryption tool, so I encrypted everything (except a seperate /boot partition) and added a few lines to read my password in during boot time.
The problem is, I can't type anything during boot time, so the whole system is waiting for my password, but I can't type anything, what I type doesn't even echo to the screen. This is when initrd is trying to mount the root partition, right before that. But initrd will not let me type anything! so the whole system hangs at "enter password".
So I am now kicked out of my own system because of this password prompt. Of course I could remove with a live cd, but I do want to figure out how I could make this work, i'm sure i'm not the first one to think of this.
[Ubuntu Server] Mount Drive, recovery mode
- date: April 29, 2014
I recently updated to 13.10 from 12.10. No problems. I then updated from 13.10 to 14.04. When waiting for the system to reboot it never completed. And then the system started a net-boot into recovery mode. In the recovery mode none of the drives are mounted so I have to do it manually. When trying to mount my drives I get.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
I'll provide some more system info:
