Surprised that parted is not in the repo for your distro, it is Fedora you are using?
According to this :
By default, the parted package is included when installing Fedora.

Have you got Gparted installed?

Not familiar with fedora so please forgive my ignorance if this does not work as intended.

The problem appears to be that the HDD (/dev/sdb) appears to be un-partitioned.
Therefore there are no mountable partitions.

You could install parted:

Code: [Select]
sudo yum install parted -y

Then list the available
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

(make sure /dev/sdb is listed)

Then run parted:
Code: [Select]
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb
Note you will stay in parted shell, shown as (parted)
print out the current HDD configuraion
Code: [Select]
(parted) print

This should give you the list of partitions (I assume will be none)

To create a standard dos partition table (use gpt if you prefer GPT):

Code: [Select]
(parted) mklabel msdos
(parted) print

Create one primary partition as ext4
(you still need to create the filesystem, see later)

Code: [Select]
(parted) mkpart primary ext4 0% 95%
(parted) print
A new partition should be listed
then exit
Code: [Select]
(parted) q

Now create the filesystem
Code: [Select]
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1

Note, you can create ntfs instead of ext4 if you like.

After that it will get automounted (probably)

the fdisk -l does list partitions:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk label type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x000510f7

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048     1026047      512000   83  Linux
/dev/sda2         1026048   976773119   487873536   8e  Linux LVM

but listed none of them for /dev/sdb

It looks to me that dev/sdb is not partitioned:
Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

Missing the partition data

It looks like your CPU is 64 bit compatible:

     Manufacturer    Dell Inc.
     Model    Dell DXC061
     Total amount of system memory    2.00 GB RAM
     System type    32-bit operating system
     Number of processor cores    2
    64-bit capable    Yes

Why do not try the 64 bit version of the OS?

Not familiar with Lite, but I believe it uses XFCE, so you may have something similar to other users.

Have a look in Power Manager -> Security, see if Lock screen enabled when Screensaver is activated.

Also have a look at Screensaver settings, the lock might be initiated by that

Linux Support / Re: Can't do a manual fsck on root system
« on: September 21, 2021, 08:54:03 pm »
run fsck from a Live-CD/Live-USB
Identify partitions

Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Make sure they are unmounted:
Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
for n in /dev/sda* ; do umount $n ; done

then run fsck on them (substitute X to suit):

Code: [Select]
fsck /dev/sdaX

or fix an hard drive related issue called bad blocks you may have (this will take a long time).

Code: [Select]
fsck -cy /dev/sdaX
Code: [Select]
fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sdaX

Linux Support / Re: Log in requested for samba shares in Peppermint
« on: September 21, 2021, 08:48:27 pm »
If I remember right, with newer Samba, it will not allow anonymous public share
Try adding to your smb.conf
Code: [Select]
    map to guest = Bad User
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m
    log level = 1

Code: [Select]
[your share]
    # This share allows anonymous (guest) access
    # without authentication!
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes
    force user = nobody

Run the command it tells you to
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
and it should be able to correct itself.

If it doesn't try running
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -f
(to fix broken packages) and then try running
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Just make sure you have internet access available so that you can download any dependencies.

Linux Support / Re: MPV Media player doesn´t play my DVDs on Ubuntu

Mpv is a videoplayer, so will only display content when playing that.

The information on the bottom of the window will stay on, if you move (and leave) your cursor there.

As Mad Penguin pointed out, it is a good idea, having a mailer running on your system to get notifications (by mail) of impending doom. So you may still want to install postfix.
If you are happy that all is well, please mark the title of your first post on this topic as [SOLVED].

So I closed the terminal and opened it again and put in what it told me and then I got this message:

By closing the terminal, you left the process dangling, so blocking debconf.
You should have completed the install in the same terminal.

Try again (after a reboot) and see if that removed the lock
If not then try:

Code: [Select]
sudo fuser -vik /var/cache/debconf/config.dat
Will display the process and ask if you want to terminate it.

Then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Well, you must have installed (or tried to) mailutils (postfix) which after forcing the fix-missing has come to the point of setting itself up  ::)

It appears that if you got install recommends set then smartmontools will pull in mailutils.

Remove the packages first:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove smartmontools
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove

You can test this by:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -s smartmontools

To install without the extra packages use this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends smartmontools

Always update before install  ;)

Try installing it again
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install smartmontools

then on a full disk (not partition)
Code: [Select]
sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda
