Ubuntu :: The Dreaded Number Lock Won't Work?

May 2, 2010

Number lock won't stay on or off. There doesn't seem to be any pattern. I'll be typing, and use the number keypad to move the cursor to the far left or right, and get a number instead. Or the opposite will happen.have tried ctrl-alt-numlock. I have tried installing numlockx. I have tried, in fact, every solution listed here that I can find. I had the same problem with 9.04, and found a terminal command (I think) that fixed it.But I didn't save the solution anywhere, and I can't find the post with that solution in the forums.

CentOS 5 :: Kernel OOPS - Scroll Lock Keys Start Blinking

Apr 25, 2009

I'm trying to install CentOS 5.3 on a VMWare virtual machine running VMWareServe 1.0.4 build-56528. I have 8 virtual machines that are running some older kernel (RH FedoraCore 4) without any trouble. My system has an AMD Athlon XP 1800 processor and has 1G RAM. Every time during the installation after choosing skip media (I have already checked that the media is OK) I get a kernel OOPS and the capslock and scroll lock keys start blinking. My first guess was that this could be a ACPI issue, so I have disabled ACPI using the acpi=no boot option. The problem persists with the acpi=no option set. During the boot install process, I have seen some messages like this one

ACPI Exception (processor_core-xxxx): AE_NOT_FOUND, Processor Device is not present [xxxxxxxxx]

I have searched for this issue and found a RedHat Bug 435653 that reports this same issue, but this report is somewhat old, so i think that this issue as already been fixed and reflected to upstream. I have tried also to install using the text mode installation, but the same problem. To further isolate this problem, i have avoided the hardware detection and this was the first time that i have overcome the first screen (test media screen), as i have choosen with the success the language and the keybord layout. After choosing the beyboard layout, the kernel OOPS shows up again. On the screen 4 (debug screen) I don't see any relevant messages.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Lock Up At I386 Start Kernal Command And Blinky Cursor

Aug 21, 2010

I have a pc trying to install fedora. It is an amd downloaded and tried to install different versions of fedora. The latest i686 and will get to a boot screen and when selecting boot will lock up at the i386 start kernal command and blinky curser. Yes I am new to linux and may need some hand holding. I have however successfully installed fedora on other computers a while back which is why I am not sure what is going on. It may be a hardware mismatch. I will try to see if I can find another computer to install. I used a different computer and is working. The athlon computer is not working.

Ubuntu :: Sudo-apt Get Not Working - Not Get Lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock Resource Temporarily Unavailable

Jun 12, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an old Sony Vaio laptop. I was following some of the steps here..[url]

The step "Enable Full DVD Playback(Dual Layer DVD Support)" did not finish correctly doh and now I can't use 'sudo apt-get' for anything or the software center or using the 'Update Manager' does not work.

The update manger says it may be caused by an update not finishing correctly which sounds correct as explained above. The apt-get command gives me back the following....'Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock resource temporarily unavailable' 'unable to lock administration directory /var/lib/dpkg is another process using it?'

I tried the obvious restart but that hasn't worked.

Ubuntu :: Volume Controls Not Working After Enabling Num Lock Or Caps Lock?

May 2, 2010

There is a very strange problem I've been having. When I enable either Caps Lock or Num Lock the media controls on my keyboard cease to work. I have Googled this one to death but found nothing. This problem existed in Xubuntu 9.10 and now still exists in Xubuntu 10.04. The keyboard I use is a Logitech Elite Keyboard. I would love to be able to use the Caps Lock and Num Lock without the worry that I am disabling the media controls

Ubuntu :: Load Live CD / Caps Lock/scroll Lock Flash?

May 27, 2010

I have just burned the latest CD using infraRecorder, as per the instructions on this site, however when I boot from this CD, it spends about 5 minutes moving the red balls across my screen, then all of the sudden it just freezes, and my caps and scroll lock lights start to blink. I've had a look in the forums already but there's nothing about this happening on Boot of the live CD.

Ubuntu :: Num Lock Doesn't Work / When Pressing Num Lock And Typing Numbers, Nothing Happens?

Jun 23, 2010

I'm wondering why the num lock doesn't work in Ubuntu anymore? When you press the "num lock" key, you're supposed to be able to input the numbers along with + - * / and decimal point. When I press num lock and try typing numbers, nothing happens.

I've done a google search and this is a well known problem that nobody has fixed. In Windows it's never a problem.

Seems such a shame that the great Ubuntu and Linux are so good for stability and speed, but can't get a simple num lock working.

General :: Script To Insert Number Of Lines In A File To The Start Of The File?

Sep 17, 2009

I'm looking for a way to insert the number of lines in a file to the start of the aformentioned file. This should be simple but as I am not used to scripts in Linux, I am finding it tough going. I can find the number of lines in a file easily enough via

filesize=$(awk 'END {print NR}' $1)

but as for inserting this into the first line, i'm failing to do so. I've tried some of the other approaches on these forums but none so far have been able to do so.

I've tried:

sed '1i$filesize' $1

but sed i requires a string, not a variable so no go I've also tried:

mv "$1" "${1}.bak" 2>/dev/null || touch "${1}.bak"
cat $filesize "${1}.bak" >"$1"

but again with no luck as cat seems to need an input stream Just to recap, i want to insert a line at the start of a given file that holds the number of lines the original file has.

ie the file:


should become:

Can I change the Caps Lock key to Control and still keep the on/off nature of Caps Lock? I've checked into using xmodmap and seem to have hit a dead end. Many people want to swap them, but they also want to swap the way they work. I'd rather keep my new Control key as an on/off switch for Control.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 64-bit Hard Lock At 7am?

Mar 14, 2010

Every once in a while I have noticed in the the morning that the computer is hard locked, meaning what ever was on the screen is still there (or just blank for screen saver), the machine is inaccessible over the network, and there is no kernel panic message in the logs.

This last time around my brother was logged in and he had the screen saver turned off, so I could see the exact time the clock stopped updating, and it read 7:00am. The var/log/messages log lists its last mark at 6:59:29.

A thought came to my mind the other month to check power stability because both my router and my network switch had a history of doing odd things even though I was using a line conditioner. After replacing the line conditioner with an APC Back-UPS XS 1500, both the network switch and the router have been perfectly behaved, but after a few weeks of continuous up time my Ubuntu system hard locked again and I don't know why.

Here are some hardware details:
m/b: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
CPU: Intel 940
RAM: 12 GB @ 1066 MHz actual (1333 MHz rated, but can't do with banks fully populated.)
RAID: 3ware 9650 SATA-II 8-port w/ battery backup
Video: PNY nVidia 260 GTX core 216 based card with 896 MBs RAM.
P/S: Seasonic S12 650W (80Plus certified)
