Re: getcwd cannot access parent directories after file server rebuild

We resolved the problem. It was stale NFS file handles on the workstations, apparently left when the server first crashed. We cleared the NFS cache on the server, then did "umount -l" on the workstations and rebooted them. When the workstations came back up, no more error. :D Thanks to lig...

Gerald,

Thanks for your response, but the paths in /etc/password on both the server and the workstation are all valid. They are even all local; none are automounted. Do you have any other ideas?

RESOLVED: getcwd cannot access parent directories after file server rebuild

Long story short: our file server died, and we fixed it by taking the drives out of the dead machine and putting them into a good machine, which became our new file server. We had to change the MAC addresses in the network interface files, but after that it seemed to work. The only problem now is th...

Re: SD card only available to root

Yes. It is an msdos filesystem. Run "man mount" and read up on the fat mount options. The mount option “users” should do what I want, but I don't see where to apply it. The contents of my /etc/fstab file are: # # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Mon Dec 28 14:17:16 2015 # # Accessible ...

Re: SD card only available to root

What does "mount" show? This is the output from mount: sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,seclabel) proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime) devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,nosuid,seclabel,size=1785092k,nr_inodes=446273,mode=755) securityfs on /s...

SD card only available to root

I just installed CentOS 7 on an old Acer Aspire One netbook, which has a built-in SD card reader. I leave an 8 GB SD card in the reader. When I log on as root, I have a desktop icon that looks like an external CD player with the label "8.2 GB Volume", but when I log on as a non-privileged ...

Re: kmod-nvidia-304xx segfaults under kernel 3.10.0-229

Not that I know of. But this does not mean it is without a problem. Could you confirm (once again) that you are using the correct combination of the kernel and the kmod package? Yes, I was running the 3.10.0-229 kernel with kmod-nvidia-304xx-304.125-2. For now, I've downgraded to the previous kerne...

Re: kmod-nvidia-304xx segfaults under kernel 3.10.0-229

Okay, you have the right kmod package (304). The latest version (125-2) works with the latest kernel (229) but is not backward compatible. So, if you updated the kernel, you need to use the latest kmod package. If you want to keep using the earlier version (125-1), you cannot update the kernel to 2...
