    Error on start-up - Ubuntu Desktop 12.04


    I am using Ubuntu 12.04 as a desktop operating system on my physical machine. When I start my computer i get an error

    "An error occurred while mounting /proc/bus/usb."
    Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery

    when I press S i get my desktop and every thing works well

    Any idea on how to fix this issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Ali

    Looks like this used to be an issue in 9.10 and earlier, but a quick google search reveals others having the problem in 12.04 as well.
    Google Translate

    Try commenting out the line
    none / proc / bus / usb usbfs devgid = 125, devmode = 664 0 0
    in /etc/fstab

    Thanks for your reply

    This is what I see in /etc/fstab

    none /proc/bus/usb usbfs listgid=1002,listmode=0664,busgid=1002,busmode=077 5,devgid=1002,devmode=0664 0 0

    Should I comment out this line?

    Yeah, it's worth a shot. Make sure you have a live cd hand in case you have to undo your change (though I feel this is unlikely).

    Thanks a lot for the help, I uncommented the line and everything is back to normal again

    Cheers
