Ubuntu :: Intermittent Copy Failure - Operation Not Supported By Backend
I have a system that has an intermittent issue with copying files. Below is the error that occurs. Error while copying "<filename>"
There was an error coping the file into network:///
Operation not support by backend

The user has Ubuntu 8.04. They are using the Nautilus window to copy files (drag and drop) from a CD/DVD or USB device. The directory they are copying onto is a RAID0 device with approximately 2T of space, and more than enough space to take the files. The permissions for the drive and folders are set to the user.

This occurs randomly and is very frustrating. We cannot duplicate it and when it does occur, it will happen once, then work fine. I've been checking forums and help files all over, but find nothing similar. The only stuff I find is if it's a new install and the permissions haven't been set correctly. Even a confirmation that someone else has seen this before.

Debian Configuration :: Error: "dpkg: Failed To Write Status Database"
during an "apt-get install" the filesystem of a virtual machine filled up and so it failed. I have now increased the file-system size but running the same "apt-get install" again results in this error: "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem." However when I try to run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' I get this error: "dpkg: failed to write status database record about 'libxmuu1' to '/var/lob/dpkg/status': No space left on device" How can I recover from this situation?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia: Failed To Allocate Primary Buffer
I recently did a fresh install of squeeze. I have the stock 32 kernel along with the 34 from experimental (it is listed as stable by I installed version 195.36.24 of the Nvidia driver using the Nvidia installer, and after starting X the system became unresponsive.

grep '^(E' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(EE) May 21 11:28:50 NVIDIA(0): Failed to allocate primary buffer: out of memory.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

I find this strange considering that I have used this driver with no problem on a 33 kernel and the same video card:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] [10de:01d7] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:1212]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16


I believe it has 256MB of video memory, and I have 1GB of system memory. Is this just a problem with the 34 kernel?

Fedora :: Failed To Initialize Packaging Backend
Recently I started getting pop-up saying:

Failed to initialize
Failed to initialize packaging backend
This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously.
under more details i get:

There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root. I get to terminal, and as a root I try yum-complete-transaction, but it just says there are no unfinished transactions left. I tried to update thru yum, but this is what I get:

# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, refresh-packagekit
Determining fastest mirrors .....

After lots of googling, I tried:
"yum clean all",
"rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*" + "rpm -vv --rebuilddb" + "yum clean all",

Everything else is working well, and I am able to update with "--skip-broken", but I keep getting this pop-ups. I use fedora 12.

Fedora :: KPackageKit - Failed To Initialize Backend?
Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.

General :: Copy To System Clipboard Instead Of Vim Buffer
I would like to set Y and P to copy and paste directly to the system clipboard instead of vim buffer. I don't want any additional commands. Just the normal ones, but they should copy to and paste from the system clipboard and bypass the vim buffer.

Fedora :: KPackageKit: Failed To Initialize Packaging Backend?
I have error in KPackageKit when i try to install anything or check for updates:

Failed to initialize packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously.

Details: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root.

I don't know anything about other packaging tools - I think I don't using any. Yum works fine in terminal. Reinstall PackageKit and KPackageKit files doesn't helped me. I also try to rebuilt rpm db:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb
yum clean all

I'm using Fedora 12 x86_64.

Fedora :: Software Update Error - Failed To Initialize The Packaging Backend
From the GUI, software update gives the error "Failed to Initialize - Failed to initialize the packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously." In the more details, "There are unfinished transactions remaining.

I run a terminal, switch to root and do as it tells me. It returns saying that there are no unfinished transactions. I've run it several times with the same result. Then I run "yum clean all" and "yum upgrade." The upgrade processes runs and reports "there are unfinished transactions..." However, the upgrade process still completes. Basically it is now a severe annoyance, but the system does seem to upgrade. I just cannot figure out why there are somehow unfinished transactions that I cannot get rid of. I tried reinitializing the rpm database - no luck. How can I somehow reset yum?

Debian :: Get Past The Message During Upgrade?
This is probably a pretty basic question - a little embarrassing because I am not totally new to Debian. I am installing Squeeze on my Acer netbook. I am using an iso image that is a few months old, so once the system was installed I ran aptitude update and upgrade which fetched a lot of upgrades. During the install a message pops up regarding initramfs-tools that states: To improve boot speed and avoid some complications, video drivers are no longer included in intramfs by default (MODULES=most). --maximillian attems <> Mon, 05 Apr 2010 /tmp/tmpvNAm1I (END)My really embarrassing question is: How do I get past this message and proceed with installation of the files? I know I've had to contend with this in past, but for some reason I am drawing a blank on how to exit this message
