1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / MMC Card/USB Hard dive Mounting read only on Debian on: October 14, 2010, 03:25:05 AM
I have installed Debian on Plug.

When I try to mount any MMC/SD/USB Hard drive it is mounting read-only.

When I check the permission, the permissions are rwx for root, user, group.

I have also modified fstab. added rw, and the also added umask=000

/dev/sda1 /media/usbdisk vfat rw,umask=000          0 0

I am having this problem even if I login as root or change the media from mmc to usb hard drive or use another SD card.

Is this something to do with Udev?

3  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Debian: Wvdial : command not found on: October 06, 2010, 11:14:43 AM
 I upgraded my Plug to Debian to get my Reliance 3G data card to work.

I used the instructions here. http://plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Installing_Debian_To_Flash

Now my data card is getting detected as /dev/ttyUSB0

However I am not able to get any dialers to work.

When I try to install wvdial it gives me this error.


Package wvdial is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'wvdial' has no installation candidate

I have added this line to /etc/apt/sources.list


deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free universe multiverse

but it gives me this error.

W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/Release  Unable to find expected entry  universe/binary-armel/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


I have tried compiling the package as well, but it requires libwvstreams which is not to be found.


Any help would be highly appreciated.
