Thanks for for your time,
I couldn't find any post close in nature to this problem.

I have a crashed Lacie network storage device, something in it's networking board is fried. It's comprised of 2 separate HDD's, both 500gig. I was afraid they were going to be stripped but it appears they hold their own complete files. I was able to look at the files through a file recovery program on Hiren's bootdisk. Said program was unable to keep file structure however. It seems theres no way to activate it to be read as a disk in windows.
Computer management reads both of the disks as having 5 small partitions and a large (476gig) partition on it. No real way to look into that partition though?
A couple other programs analyzed the disk and tell me it's 'linux native'.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to pull the files as well as folder structure out of it?

Hello message board! Just a few questions here I can not seem to find out via Google, manuals, and reading other forum posts... We are attempting to utilize a t610 with the Linux based o.s. and are running into a few hurdles... I have seen on "Windows" based thin clients, after you make a change to something, you must "Commit" the changes... Is there a way to do this on a Linux box? It seems that the o.s. partition is Read Only?? Also, is there a way to navigate files and folders on this type of thin client? I see the terminal in "Admin" mode and I can kind-of nav files and folders through the text editor, but I am at a semi-loss doing things this way... I know this may be a stupid question, but is there a way to re-image this thin client to a "Windows" based o.s.? The main problem I am experiencing is an add-on/extension in firefox is not "sticking" in my firefox browser.... I have installed the extension many times, and after I restart the browser, it is gone and my settings are reverted to "original"... I am taking a guess here, but I am guessing every time this client "reboots" it is booting to an image?? One last question, is there any "manuals" for these Linux based clients? I see most or all of the helps seems to be geared towards Windows, and would just like a reference... Thanks for reading!Brandon

A:T610 Linux based thin client

If you're talking about the HP ThinPro OS- Before you can make changes to the file system, you need to run this command from the terminal - "fsunlock". When you're done, "fslock" locks the file system again. There isn't another file explorer tool included that I'm aware of in ThinPro. Command line and the notepad tool are the only real ways to navigate the file system. If you're looking for help with something, keep in mind it is basically a stripped-down version of Ubuntu, with some extra utilities and GUI provided by HP. The nuts and bolts are the same as an Ubuntu build so I've gotten quite a bit of insight from Ubuntu forums online for problems that I've had. As for your browser extensions issue, depending on how you're doing this, you can configure connections to allow them to configure their own settings, or to use HP ThinPro settings. If you haven't allowed Firefox to create and use its own settings in the file system, nothing you change inside the browser will stick. I haven't tried installing a browser extension but I'm pretty sure that's where your problem is.

(I like KDE - I use it in other distros too - but like all things Linux YOU have a CHOICE !!!).

Then I installed RH4(c0d1) and Suse10(c0d2) on my other 2 drives. Installation was completed successsfully but when it reboot after installation complete, I can't boot up to the OS installed on other drives although the boot entry of Rhat4 and Suse 10 appears at EFI boot manager.When i select the entry(Rhat 4 or Suse 10) it says file not found.
When I boot up to Rhat5.1, installed on the 1st drive and mount c0d1 to /mnt/floppy, i could see the files that has been installed on other drives.

A:Want to dual boot Win7 with Linux on a UEFI-based laptop.

I don't know Kali Linux at all, but I have installed Linux Mint 16 on a UEFI Windows 7 system.  Current versions of Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSuse at least have support for UEFI.  For Kali Linux, it appears you will have to make a custom ISO with UEFI support - https://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?271-How-to-EFI-install-Kali-Linux
 
To install Linux Mint, dual booting with Windows 7 in UEFI mode here is what I did...
 
- Starting point was Win 7 x64 installed in UEFI mode, GPT partitioning scheme on all attached disks, and 100Gb unpartitioned space on one of the disks.  If you need to re-size existing partitions to create space use Gparted.
 
- Boot Linux Mint DVD in UEFI mode (this involves going into the BIOS, and in the Boot Override menu choosing the name of the DVD drive with UEFI in the name, as per below).  NB This is important - if the installer is not booted in UEFI mode, it will install in Legacy mode and this will not work if the existing OS is installed in UEFI mode.
 

 
- Choose "I want to do something else" aka custom installation in the installer
 
- Created separate root, home and swap partitions (swap, if using, should be equal to ram).  The root and home partitions were formatted to Ext4 FS.  I allocated 20Gb to the root partition and the leftover free space to the home partition.  Mount point for root is /, and for home is /home.

Goal: Dual boot Windows 7 and Linux and have an NTFS partition for both OS.

Problem: When creating Logical Partitions with any Linux partition tool(Gparted, cfdisk) the Linux swap and ext 4 partitions shows up on Windows 7 as primary partitions outside of the Extended partition while the NTFS partition shows up inside the Extended partition as logical drive. Disk management shows 5 primary partitions and 1 logical drive inside an extended partition.(As seen in Disk1.jpg attachment) I'm using MBR.(not UEFI)

I can create the partitions in Windows 7 disk management and choose not to format the two logical partitions used for Linux. I can then use the mkswap and mkfs.ext4 command to format the partitions.(See Disk2.jpg attachment)

Questions:
Why is Windows 7 disk management not showing my partitions correctly when I use a Linux tool to partition the disk? Will this cause any problems with Windows 7? I'm afraid of making Windows 7 unbootable.(although it booted just fine I do plan on using EasyBCD to add an entry to load the grub bootloader for Linux)

If I partition my disk with Windows 7 disk management(as seen in Disk2.jpg) will that cause any problems for Linux?

What is the recommended way to handle this? What are the downsides to each way?

Note: I'm a bit of a linux noob.

Hello.

Devices powered by Linux are increasing day by day, and most of these devices are positioned at the entry or key points of any organization?s network. Misconfigurations and easy to exploit vulnerabilities are commonly leveraged by bad actors. Many of these attacks can be studied by configuring low-interactive Honeypots.

Low-interactive Honeypots can capture the malware scripts and binaries, however analyzing these malware samples are also important. Further, keeping such analysis openly available helps independent researchers to search information of their interest and make useful conclusions.

Detux aims at automating the analysis of Linux samples, by supporting multiple CPU architectures (ARM, MIPS, MIPSEL, x86 and x86-64), and making its result openly available for researchers.

My config is HP G6 1075 SA with W7 Home Premium 64 bit pre-installed. It was working well until last week when I decided to install Debian Linux. I am no N00B to Linux and have installed it probably 100s of times. Debian installed and booted well but Windows BSODed with an error 0x0000225 cannot access drive. I formatted C and attempted to reinstall Windows 7 but it is unable to detect the HDD. I accept terms of license and move on to the point of choosing disks but nothing shows up. (There is an option to choose drivers. Where do I locate them? The HP website isn't helpful and I can't even find my product let aside the drivers)

I have already tried :
1. Partitioning an NTFS file system in Debian. Doesnt show.
2. Deleting a partition in Debian and attempt to see the free space in W7 Installer. Didn't work.
3. Try to do the BIOS setting thing (Change SATA option from AHCI to compatible or something). I could find no such setting in BIOS. The BIOS was severely limited with only option of switching on fan.

Connected a windows share to a NAS Linux v5 Based Thecus N4100, N5500, N7700, and N8800.

Google Drive reported the directory was not writeable. A quick look and all folders had a black square in read only. Took a look at the security tab and the only full control was for the NAS accounts. All windows account permissions that Google drive relies on were blank and unchangeable. This is by design for Linux NAS permission in Windows. No I cant change everyone to full control..

As google drive has no explicit NAS Linux account the only option was to have the NAS run in public permission mode. Yes google drive now installs.

But it's not a good fix. Acronis True Image Home backup can not log into the NAS. It wants a Linux account to browse despite it being public. But the public NAS has no account! No I can not make a Linux user and get google drive to work.

Someone suggested "this sounds like the old "aligning the Windows and Linux account" problem. As it sounds like a 2 decade old issue I'll keep it short. Why not try the logins aligned. That is if I login on my Windows as Sally, why don't I have a matching Sally account on Linux?"

Introducing New Linux-based Norton Bootable Recovery Tool 2016.1.0

New Linux-based NBRT

It is truly a milestone event that we have released a newer version of Norton Bootable Recovery Tool (NBRT). The newer version is designed to run on Linux OS instead of WinPE OS and can be downloaded from the NBRT portal site. The change was necessary due to the expiration of re-distribution rights of WinPE OS.

The current WinPE-based NBRT version has been serving for nearly two decades.

Over time, NBRT has dealt with many tough-to-remove threats and we understand that NBRT can save the last bacon at unfortunate times. Therefore Norton team decided to invest in the development of a newer version that can run on Linux OS. Nearly all components had to be re-written for the new OS environment and now the newer version is ready to take over the critical missions.

Better and more are coming!

The new Linux-based NBRT version is shipped with several utility tools including a web browser and command-line tool. No more special tool like NBRTWizard is required to create a bootable media with the latest antivirus definition. Users can directly download the NBRT ISO image and load it to a bootable media of their choice: DVD or USB. Once started, the new version checks for the availability of newest antivirus definitions and automatically updates the product.

The new version also supports both wired and wireless network connection and compatible with SATA/SSD disks. IDE disks are no longer supp... Read more

Hi there

I usually run a LINUX HOST for testing Windows VM's - but I need to test some new releases of various Linux distros so I've created some VM's --easy enough and running them on a Windows Host.

However I can't attach a USB drive with a Linux file system (XFS) to the VM as the Windows HOST rejects the HDD wanting me to format it !!. There's 2.7 TB of media files on it - I want to test running media server in a VM.

Anybody know how to bypass the Windows nag prompt about the HDD and be able to attach it direct to the VM.

(The other way round is no problem -- never a problem loading NTFS HDD's on to Linux machines -- however the NTFS file system is SLOW compared with XFS -- on USB3 device on Native windows transfer rate of 1 TB of files from fast NTFS HDD to NTFS USB3 device is max 82 Mib/s - average for whole transfer. On same machine with Native Linux and XFS to XFS (using same HDD's and USB 3 port avg speed is 350 mib/s !! -- HUGE difference !!!).

Note I have to have a Windows Host for this --I know I could run Linux VM's from a Linux Host but in this case I do have to use a Windows Host as that will be the destination system at the end of testing.

BTW I'm running VMWARE workstation 12.1 on W10 Pro Host.

I've been having this problem where I'm losing a very high percentage of my packets (40-92%), when I'm running in Window 7 64 bit. However, when I use the Asus Express Gate (which I understand is based on SplashTop which runs in Linux), I get 0% packet loss.

This problem only seems to happen on this connection. I have used the computer extensively on other connections with 0% loss.

I am not a computer expert, so I apologize if I dont know the right term to use. If it is not clear, post something, and I will clarify asap.

Determined packet loss using pingtest.net and using the cmd window to ping google.com.

Attempted fixes:

*updated LAN drivers

*restarted modem

*Disabled Firewall and Antivirus

*Had my ISP reset the connection from their end

*reset hardware (take battery out, unplug, then hold power button down for 45 sec)

*A service technician from my ISP came out and could find nothing wrong with the connection. The signal strength was good.

I havent reloaded the operating system yet. I'm told it is unlikely to solve the problem since it has been happening since i got the computer. I would like to avoid this if possible lol.

Thanks for any input you have. I'm willing to try anything if it might help.
 

A:Solved: High (60%+) packet loss in Windows 7, but not in Express Gate (Linux based)

Ok, I have a Toshiba PCX 2200 series and this is the modem that Road Runner uses(well one of them anyway) and also I use the USB cable not the NIC. Is linux refusing the USB and prefers NIC?
 

A:I tried on the linux boards so now I'm here, about cable modem on linux...

Most of the times yes... it depends of the distro version that you use...
In any case you're better off with a nic card ( and this applies for Micro$oft OS as well...)

I have SUSE 9.3 Installed on a 19GB partition of a 40GB hard drive. I heard that it is possible to dual boot with Windows with Linux being the first installed OS, but it's complicated. Can anyone tell me if I can pull this off without having to make Windows the first installed OS? Here is how I have my partitions:
hda1=1GB [swap]
hda2=17.8 / [root]
 

A:Linux/Windows dualboot machine with Linux first?

The easiest way: Make hda1 bigger and install Windows there.

You will have to restore GRUB later using the SuSE CD and also create the GRUB menu entry for WIndows..

A:want to try unbuntu and linux or linux mint

Linux mint is comparatively easier to use, as it's GUI is similar to Windows. On the other hand, Ubuntu or Fedora look a bit different, but the functions are basically the same.

It will be a good idea to take a backup before installation.

I AM CLEARING AND REWORKING MY NT4 AND WAS WONDERING ABOUT A LINUX OS TO WORK ALONG WITH IT IN A PARTITION.
COULD ANYONE RECOMEND A GREAT BROTHER?
I HEARD THAT CORELS LINUX IS SUCH A PLAYER WITH NT4. ANY OTHER LINUX OS THAT MAY BE BETTER? I AM A VERY NEWBIE AT THIS POINT>

THANKS------------OKOKOPO

 

A:{Moved to Linux Forum} - NT-4 AND LINUX ?

Greetings

OK, I have never worked with Corel's Linux, but I have been told that it is a nice version to learn the Linux GUI.

Other good version's to learn on are Mandrake and Red Hat. But, if you want to get more power out of your linux installation, you need to use distributions like Slackware, or Debian.

And... I am sure that another Linux fan will have a completely different point of view. Oh well... If you want, I can move this thread to the Linux forum, and you can see what their reaction is.

My best solution for you, is to buy a "Linux for Dummies" type of book, which should come with a free CD with a Linux distribution on it. That way, you get a beginner's Guide to Linux, plus a pressed bootable CD.

What I can give you, are specific instructions to installing linux as a dual boot system with NT.

If you go to www.xperts.co.za/reuel/multiboot I have specific instructions on how to dual boot your system with NT.

Hope this helps

Hi,

I need to read windows files on linux for Red Hat Linux 9.x.
Can some one tell me the way, how this can be done or some setting which enable to read files from windows on linux.


regards
ratan
 

A:windows files on linux for Red Hat Linux

If you need to read an NTFS mounted drive in that machine then you'll need to add kernel support for NTFS. Try looking http://www.linux-ntfs.org/ for that info. If you just want to hit shares then just mount them via smb.

Hi there

Linux Mint (17) QIANA now released

I Am trying this in a VM now before testing on a REAL machine. I'm looking for good things with this release --it's a LTS (Long Term support) release which will be supported until 2019.

This is the sort of things I've been looking for -- I tend to use Linux as an everyday desktop and like the idea of Long term release support -- one of the main reasons I chose OPENSUSE over a lot of other ones - but I do prefer a debian based system over an RPM based one like SUSE even though I haven't had too many complaints with it.

(I recommend you use the LEGAL torrent in their links - it's a lot faster than some of the servers until the mirrors get loaded up with the new release).

Just downloaded Avast 5 and downloaded the latest definitions. Went about to test and see how good the new version is.

Had a directory with 8 fresh new viri waiting to see the results.

Out of 8 it only detected 2

Removed Avast 5 and installed Kaspersky 2010 with full definitions.

Kaspersky detected 6 out of 8

Will leave Kaspersky on for a while.

Ars reports from the Linux Security Summit?and finds much work that needs to be done.

The Linux kernel today faces an unprecedented safety crisis. Much like when Ralph Nader famously told the American public that their cars were "unsafe at any speed" back in 1965, numerous security developers told the 2016 Linux Security Summit in Toronto that the operating system needs a total rethink to keep it fit for purpose.

No longer the niche concern of years past, Linux today underpins the server farms that run the cloud, more than a billion Android phones, and not to mention the coming tsunami of grossly insecure devices that will be hitched to the Internet of Things. Today's world runs on Linux, and the security of its kernel is a single point of failure that will affect the safety and well-being of almost every human being on the planet in one way or another.

"Cars were designed to run but not to fail," Kees Cook, head of the Linux Kernel Self Protection Project, and a Google employee working on the future of IoT security, said at the summit. "Very comfortable while you're going down the road, but as soon as you crashed, everybody died."
