I had a failed attempt at an upgrade to 10.04 but I know the error of my ways however before I go through it again does 10.04 still have the tools available for a dial-up connection, wvdial & gnome ppp?
I am running debian linux wheezy, and recently, all of a sudden, all videos in my iceweasel browser have been refusing to play videos of any kind at full volume. I am, however, able to download the video and play it at full volume on vlc player or sytem video player.Why iceweasel is acting this way?
The forum spell checker on Iceweasel is not working since the last upgrade. I use Debian Lenny, but it is a mixed system of backports and some Squeeze. After the last upgrade of Iceweasel from backports, I notice that the spell checker in forums such as this one no longer works. For instance, "salkdfjkjlslkdf" does not get the red underline like it used to. It was a while ago that I had set up Iceweasel to do this, and I can't remember how I did it. I thought that I simply needed the language dictionary (in my case, Canadian English), which I'm sure still exists.
I followed blindly this how to : [URl].. out of laziness and then for some reason bind9 didn't want to start. So I tried to apt-get remove it, but when I re-install it, it failed because
Code: chgrp: cannot access `/etc/bind/named.conf*': No such file or directory so I assume the chrooting stuff I did is in the way, but I know very little about chrooting and permissions ... how can I undo the following things I did : Code: /etc/init.d/bind9 stop
I installed from a live CD when it came to selecting the partition I re-sized the partition that Ubuntu was on because it was 68 gigs I shaved off 15 gigs for SUSE. Then I selected this new 15gig partition to install SUSE on, everything went fine with the installation I was tinkering around on SUSE but of course I needed internet access, so I go to get on Ubuntu where I had my file with my network key. I restarted expecting to see the usual GRUB boot-loader screen only now with an added option for SUSE. Instead I see an entirely new layout for the GRUB boot loader and all that is listed is SUSE, Failsafe SUSE, Windows XP, and Floppy. The Windows is my XP install and it loads fine sadly it is actually what I'm using now because it is the only thing left that I have my network key saved so I can get on this forum.
Looking on SUSE I notice that the 50gig partition formerly known as Ubuntu still exists I figure no problem add the partition back on to the boot-loader and I'm good to go. Added it and when I select to load it nothing happens it starts to then reverts back to the OS list. Does anyone A) Know how to resolve this or have any ideas. B) Think I can at least copy files off that 50 gig partition to an external hard drive.
When I try 'makebootdisk' and get to the 'format' stage, it tells me: "The attempt to format the floppy disk in /dev/fd0 has failed ..." The disk is fine, and can be read from, but the above msg. shows up instantly -- the light on the drive doesn't even come on. I'd expect this to be a routine problem but I can't find any solutions either here or on the web.
My chrome browser has been broken since the last upgrade. I did (just a regular "apt-get upgrade").
I get this when I try to run the browser from a console :
Code: Select alldarko@paris:~$ google-chrome [3229:3229:0918/103229:ERROR:nss_util.cc(845)] After loading Root Certs, loaded==false: NSS error code: -8018 [3229:3229:0918/103259:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(541)] Failed to send GetTerminationStatus message to zygote [3229:3229:0918/103259:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(541)] Failed to send GetTerminationStatus message to zygote
So to be more specific :
My system is : Code: Select alldarko@paris:~$ uname -a ; cat /etc/debian_version ; cat /etc/issue Linux paris 3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u3 (2015-08-04) i686 GNU/Linux 8.2 Debian GNU/Linux 8 l
I run the Xfce desktop
The problem is the same whether is use google-chrome stable, beta, unstable, or chromium
I am a college broadcaster developing both websites for the stations I work for. We have recently switched from streaming exclusively in Apple Quicktime .mov (which gave constant headaches for myself and others involved behind-the-scenes) to that of an Icecast MP3 pls stream. The stream works within Rhythmbox v0.12.8, Audacious v2.3 and Totem Movie Player v2.30.2. However, I'm in a bit of a bind in regards to streaming this Icecast pls file within Ice Weasel v3.6.13 using Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.How can I code these sites so that Totem Movie Player plays the stream within the web page? Also, where it states object type="video/quicktime"
I made an attempt to backup my system (karmic koala) using this routine. cd / then sudo tar cvpzf backup.tgz --exclude=/proc --exclude=/lost+found --exclude=/backup.tgz --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/sys /
The process of backup went on for a very long time, which is probably normal. On returning to the computer in the morning, it was in suspend mode and would not power on via the usual method,tapping power button. So then I used the reset button, and after booting up a message appears on the top right that reports "Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."
Is there something wrong with the statement that was used for backing up the system? Also when I attempt to login it does not work now either, it eventually returns to the login user selection. So is there a possibility the backup finished and then there may be a chance the system can be restored from the backup file? I have tried booting up with a live cd and could use some advice on how to navigate with terminal to root of the system and see if the backup file exist even, have been unable to get to the root folder(where the backup would be) with the GUI method via live cd.
My buddy has a computer with a problem and hes asked me to see if I can retrieve the data documents from the computer. The subject computer is a COMPAQ PRESARIO SR5030NX with a Pentium 4 cpu, 3.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM, running Windows Vista Home Basic.
His goal was to create a dual boot computer UBUNTU and Vista. What he did was to install UBUNTU, partitioning the computer in two partitions. The computer is now giving an error code of 21 when GRUB Loader starts up. Is there a restore disk or some kind of utility that can undo what was done to the computer. He has no backup disk.
I tried Recovery Commander Ver. 3 made by Avanquest but as their website indicates it�s for XP. They never updated it for Vista and Windows 7. Is there a utility that can undo some of the changes that were made to the machine when UBUNTU was installed, albeit, unsuccessfully.
(1) I have an HP PC running XP professional and I was wondering if I take the hard drive out from the COMPAQ and rig it to my HP via a SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter device would I be able to see the contents of that COMPAQ computer that had Vista and now UBUNTU.
(2)What about attaching the COMPAQ internal hard drive and attaching it to my HP as a slave drive.
(3)Can the UBUNTU disk going to help?
Were just after the data files and not software programs.
I've searched lot on forums but couldn't find a related post. My problem is I want to hide my mail folders when login attempt in Evolution has failed. I dont use Remember password option so everytime I'm prompted for password.
When I give no password and escape that dialog, I can see all the mails that have been already downloaded form my gmail account. If any of you guys know already existing post, please redirect me to that one.
I think the installation caused the corruption of the partition table. I removed the last 3 logical partitions and gparted correctly reported the 2 remaining distros and the swap. The problem hopefully will be solved when I reinstall those distros. I have a 160 gig HD with 3 Linux,1 swap,and a Windows partition. I attempted to install PCLINUXOS unsuccessfully. When I rebooted I had the same grub. I checked gparted and it indicated all 160 gigs as unallocated. fdisk shows the partitions. and indicates one partition as empty where I attempted to install PCLOS.
No problem in accessing any of my distros, but currently I can't make any changes to my HD. I've tried parted magic and there was no solution there. I have been unable to download the Ubuntu Rescue remix. Is there a way to restore? I haven't used fdisk or cfdisk for that purpose. I am beginning to think I would need to delete all of the partitions in the extended. FDISK omitting empty partition (8)
A few minutes ago I was using google chrome when suddenly the scroll-lock indicator on my keyboard turned on... I pressed the scroll-lock key, but nothing happened, the light remained. I opened a terminal and ran "top" to find what processes were running when I was automatically logged out. I logged back and checked the logs and found the following entries in my auth.log:
Code: CRON: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0) CRON: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root
I have tried to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 three times and I have had no success. Every time I get the blank purple screen and go through hell to get it back to a usable point. I have been reading and researching about this issue and have had no luck. I have went through the steps of the sticky at the top of the forum and got no where. Can someone please look at my hardware listed below and get me some insight or a different route? Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 9500 GS Here is a link to my exact computer info:[URL]
I have a LVM snapshot that triggers these kernel errors when any LVM-related commands run:
Jul 6 10:31:38 itmanager kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device Jul 6 10:31:38 itmanager kernel: dm-28: rw=0, want=66156996183394672, limit=25165824
dm-28 is the snapshot volume in device mapper. I think this error is generated because most LVM commands will check the first 4K of various drives and volumes for LVM metadata and labels, but attempts to read any of the first eight sectors (ie: 4K) of this particular snapshot logical volume trigger this error.The most interesting thing is that the snapshot is 25165824 sectors long (12G), but attempts to access the first eight sectors result in an attempt to access sector 66156996183394672!I've obtained an info dump from getinfo.sh disk, and added the output from lvs. You can find the results here:URL.. It's not as if the sectors that back the first 4K of the volume are corrupt, either: the read request never hits any hardware because the read request is attempting to read a non-sensical sector, instead of the correct sector. Perhaps the COW metadata for the snapshot is corrupt?
How do I find the cause of this problem?Is this a critical error that I should file a bug report for?I first noticed this some time after turning the machine on Sunday afternoon.As far as I can tell from the logs, the shutdown the previous evening was normal.I use LVM fairly heavily on this machine, and this is the first time I've ever seen this kind of problem..I've worked around the problem by copying the first eight sectors from the Origin volume, and the rest from the Snapshot volume, to a new normal logical volume.However, I'm still concerned about how this error occurred in the first place.
I am looking for a file monitor to tell me when a file was attempted to be accessed, but was denied. A windows equivalent could be the auditing feature in server 2k3. I don't know which account or which file is attempting to access or be accessed, but I was hoping something built into Linux would support some sort of file auditing for security purposes.
While investigating my localhost access logs during an investigation to resolve locking myself out of my own server(!) I noticed this recent access attempt from a proxy referrer. I wouldn't expect this on a local server - currently set to listen on 127.0.01. The request was 403 forbidden, but surely the request should not have even reached this far? Is this an example of an unauthorised access attempt? I don't think it is me because all of my usual access requests are in moz 5 and im logged in to linux currently.
Note please do not click this link as I do not know where it leads ^^^^! (and i dont know how to disable it on this forum)
I grabbed the new lubuntu 10.10 from [URL] but it turns out I'm having a problem installing it on my netbook (Asus Eee PC 1015PED). While installing, this error pops up:
The attempt to mount a file system with type ext4 in SCSI2 (0,0,0), partition #1 (sda) at / failed.You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu.I'm installing via USB and have selected the option to erase everything and use the full HDD.
Botched upgrade to 11.04, but learned enough about Unity that I don't want to go there. (also installer to put second new 11.04 wants to erase everything on main drive). Can reach 10.10 -boot from prior Linux - but mouse and internet are gone. Everything else seems to work and I can get to System and terminal with keyboard shortcuts, but need to reinstall mouse (Logitech M110) and internet. Can't find an Xorg.conf file or a /dev/input/event3.
I am attempting to upgrade Fedora 12 to 13. I get an error screen that said root could not be found. Four options are given. Not sure exactly their wording, but two appear to allow you to cancel the other two warn that if you reinitialize you will wipe out all data.
I have a Vista partition and a Fedora partition. I've added the vista ntfs partition to fstab with no help. All of the partition use the long UUID form. I added the root location (root (hd0,5) to the upgrade menu item in grub.conf and that didn't work either.
I'm reluctant to proceed for fear of initializing the entire drive. I could live with installing Fedora 13 over the existing partitions.
