Linux Admin bash command diary

  1. External hard disk drive "CnMemory HDD 2,5 " and NTFS file system problem
The external HDD drivers can bring some problem when mounting if they have been formatted and use the NTFS file system. To workaround some annoying warning when the device has not been "clean" removed from the windows or linux system use the mount command with following options:

root@radex:/# cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 7.10 \n \l
root@host:/# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/tmp -o force
$LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0)
WARNING: Forced mount, reset $LogFile.
