‘attempt to access beyond end of device’ Linux Error

Filed under
Linux

Alike other operating systems’ kernel, Linux Kernel is the resource of various services to the system. While the Linux Kernel errors occur, it generally indicates problems with file system or some memory that it can’t get access to. In some cases, the solution may require Linux Data Recovery for the cause- data loss. Users may get an error in sys log, similar to:“attempt to access beyond end of device”The error is generally encountered while attempting to access a Linux partition, trying to mount it or while starting the system. The error specifications also include rw, limit and want parameters that define some sector numbers. BackgroundThe reason why the error message occurs is that system tries to access such sectors that are not there on disk. If Linux file system is corrupt then the including metadata information like control block or directory communicates incorrect location of inode, which actually doesn’t exist. But when the device driver looks for it on disk, it fais and an error, like above, is encountered.SolutionDamaged file system needs repair. So fsck can be used to correct this corruption. But if the extent of damage is high enough then fsck may not help. In this case, it is required to recreate the file system by disk formatting and recover the data from backup. If data backup exists in required state i.e. complete and intact, it will provide data restoration. However if it fails or doesn’t exist, Linux Recovery applications can be used to extract lost information from affected drive. Linux Data Recovery software are graphically rich tools that use scanning procedures to analyze and recover data from failed hard drives. These recovery solutions are valid to be used in each logical data loss case, except from data overwriting. The applications are safe as of read-only design. Also, they offer suitable options that permit recovering and restoring recovered information to the desired location. The applications are installed on other than affected drive in order to prevent overwriting. Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Linux is the best and safest Linux Recovery application to be used with ext2, ext3 and reiserFS file systems. The software is known for using the most potent scanning algorithms and for offering interactive interface. We can use this application with most of Linux distributions including Suse, RedHat, TurboLinux, SlackWare, Gentoo, Fedora Core, Debian, Ubuntu and others.

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Importantly, there are a handful of programs that are on Edubuntu that UberStudent doesn’t have, such as KAlgebra, Kazium, KGeography, and Marble. Instead, UberStudent has a smaller collection of applications but it does include some useful items when it comes to writing papers that Edubuntu does not have. So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more

New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

I’ve recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of us in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more
