Add hard drives

Postby rkillcrazy » Wed May 19, 2010 9:52 am

While I'm not a newbie to Linux per se`, I am new to Fedora & Amahi. I've used more Ubuntu than any other Linux distro and I'm no pro at that either but I know enough to be trouble :twisted: . Anyway, I'm testing Amahi to see if I want to replace my Windows Home Server with it....

I've been trying to follow this wiki page. I'm pretty much stuck, due to my immature knowledge of Linux, at the part of running the hda-diskmount2 script. (I wish Linux had more GUIs for this sort of thing....) At any rate, I've made sure the file is where it belongs and I'm "logged in" as root but I still get the following error:

Code: Select all

[root@amahi ~]# hda-diskmount2 -bash: /usr/sbin/hda-diskmount2: Permission denied [root@amahi ~]#

it looks like this part was not done:

Code: Select all

chmod +x /usr/sbin/hda-diskmount2
can you try it?

Isn't that what happened when I ran this whole string (copy/pasted from the aforementioned wiki page)?

Code: Select all

wget -q -O /usr/sbin/hda-diskmount2 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3022105/Amahi/hda-diskmount2 chmod +x /usr/sbin/hda-diskmount2

I might not matter much anyway.....

I ended up spending several hours last weekend doing it all manually. I Googled around and found out how to add drives in Fedora 12 via fdisk, mkfs.ext4 & fstab. While I got it all to work in my VM with MP3s and other smaller files, it failed miserably on real hardware with ISOs.

Long story short - I got frustrated with it & ended up trying out a BETA copy of the new Windows Home Server but I really want Amahi to work so I'm going to test it some more....

It's like it would fail when I was copying the ISOs back to the file server from my backup drive. I'll look around the forum and see if there's anything about it there. If not, I'll go into greater detail in a new topic.

Try downloading GParted from the Add/Remove Software, and then use hda-diskmount2 to try mounting the volume you created there. It [GParted] may already be installed in the System Administration menu (as either GParted or Disk Utility), but I don't remember.

OK, it looks like someone fixed the wiki and the script works correctly now.

I'm still having trouble with copying all my data over in large chunks. I'll look around the forums....
