Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Red Hat :: Error Inserting MD5 - Invalid Argument

Mar 24, 2011

I am running Red Hat with 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE kernel version. I am trying to run encryptfs to encrypt a partition on my hard drive. One of the kernel modules necessary is the md5.ko. I noticed it wasn't loaded in when doing an lsmod. I tried running modprobe md5 and it fails to load:

[root@ ~]# /sbin/modprobe -v md5
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE/kernel/crypto/md5.ko
FATAL: Error inserting md5 (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE/kernel/crypto/md5.ko): Invalid argument

I ran dmesg and grepped for md5, but I didn't see anything in there.

General :: Upgrading Encrypted System From Lenny To Squeeze

Apr 8, 2011

I'm looking to upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and would like to check if there's anything special I need to do. Software-wise there's nothing out of the ordinary on the system but, while looking into upgrading, I've read some horror stories regarding encrypted systems. I've only previously installed from fresh.

Here is how my current partitions/filesystems are set out:
. sda1/sdb1 > raid > ext2: boot
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: root
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: swap
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > xfs: data
. sdc1/sdd1 > raid > luks > lvm > freespace: vms

Would this just be a standard upgrade, as per these? [URL]. I will be backing up important data before I attempt to upgrade.

CentOS 5 :: Unusual Error During Run Time - Invalid Argument

Oct 21, 2010

I've just moved a server across to CentOS 5.5 64-bit and I have been trying to get some custom software running on it. However I'm getting an unusual error during run time:
sched_setaffinity: Invalid argument
I've had this software working on a old versions of Gentoo (2.6.12-gentoo-r6) and Fedora. And the latest version of Ubuntu server 10.04.1. (All 64 bit). It looks remarkable similar to:
Core test failed on s390x RHEL6
If v7 bug fix and enhancement update has been incorporated into CentOS 5.5 64 bit yet? Or how I might find out.

Ubuntu :: Boot Fails From HD - Error Getting Socket / Invalid Argument

Jun 20, 2011

I have an old PC with two hard drives (40 and 60Gb) and it uses dual IGhz pIII processors. It shares screen,mouse and keyboard with another PC.Both into Netgear modem. It ran ubuntu 8.04 and XP Pro on the drives above with no problems. Then I decided to try Mint 11 (34bit CD) - result after Grub blank screen other than flashing cursor at top left.No input from keyboard.
Tried Mint KDE 10 (34bit DVD) same result.
Tried Kubuntu 10 (CD) same result.
Reinstalled Ubuntu 8.04 no problem.
Upgraded via download from 8.04 to 10LTS hoping that this would somehow prevent the problem and have screen which says:-

starting up
[000000] ACPI no DMI BIOS year,ACPI =force is required to enable acpi
mount: mounting none on /dev failed: No such device
udevd[825]: error getting socket: Invalid argument
error initialising netlink socket
udevd[825] error initialising netlink socket
libudev: udev_monitor_new_from_netlink:error getting socket:Invalid argument
Segmentation fault
Gave up waiting for root device.Common problems:
Boot args (cat/proc/cmmdline)
Check root delay (Did the system wait long enough)
Check root (did the sytem wait for the right device)
Missing modules (cat/proc/modules; 1s /dev)
ALERT! dev/disc/by-uuid/"long number here" does not exist.Dropping to a shell.

Then it goes into Busybox and ends with "initramfs". I have tried altering the boot device in BIOS from HDD0 through 3 with the same result other than more bad language!

Networking :: Bandwidth Management Testing - Invalid Argument Error

Nov 29, 2010

I am trying to do some bandwidth management testing, so I have developed a small script for doing so. When I try to run it it gives the error <error> RTNETLINK answers: invalid argument</error>. I have searched the net, and so far they say it has to do something with the kernel support.

the script:
tc qdisc add dev eth1 root handle 1: htb
tc class add dev eth1 parent 1: classid 1:1 htb rate 2mbit ceil 2mbit
tc class add dev eth1 parent 1:1 classid 1:10 htb rate 600kbit ceil 2mbit prio 2
tc class add dev eth1 parent 1:1 classid 1:20 htb rate 1400kbit ceil 2mbit
tc class add dev eth1 parent 1:20 classid 20:100 htb rate 700kbit ceil 2mbit prio 0 #when running this command it gives the error
tc class add dev eth1 parent 1:20 classid 20:200 htb rate 700kbit ceil 2mbit pro 1

I am running this script on a virtual machine that has ubuntu 9.04 installed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PS Eye 10.10 / Unable To Get Microphone Working And Error Invalid Argument?

Jun 18, 2011

I want to get my PS3 Eyetoy working as a webcam on my Ubuntu box for use with Skype etc. When plugged in, the camera portion works fine and is recognised immediately. However, I am unable to get the microphone working. It appears to be recognised, but there isn't anything captured from it.

I have removed PulseAudio as it was interfering with my quest to get 5.1 working over HDMI passthrough in XBMC.

I did have it working briefly, but I must have changed something, and now I cannot get it to work for love, nor money!

This is what my system finds:

$ arecord -l

General :: Svn: Berkeley DB Error While Creating Environment For Filesystem Repo/db: Invalid Argument

Apr 14, 2009

I'm having trouble getting subversion working on Centos 4.7. When I try to create a repository using:

svnadmin create /path/to/repo
I get:

svn: Berkeley DB error while creating environment for filesystem repo/db: Invalid argument
svn: bdb: Berkeley DB library configured to support only DB_PRIVATE environments

I've searched the Net, with little luck. Threads seem to suggest that Centos has this flag compiled into the Berkeley DB RPM by default; whereas SVN doesn't want it. Someone, somewhere, must have got this to work and I'm sure it's something really simple I'm doing wrong.

Ubuntu :: Error: Device-mapper: Reload Ioctl Failed: Invalid Argument

Jun 13, 2010

I'm having some difficulities with truecrypt and cannot figure out what's wrong since this is my first attempt to create hidden encrypted partition. I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64b with latest 6.3a truecrypt. After using truecrypt gui (just command truecrypt) I've tried: create volume-->create volumne within a partition/drive-->hidden trucrypt volume --> select some /dev/sdX by my choice --> select aes & sha512 --> password --> and format it.

when formating finished message "wrong ss, swith or wrong superblock of /dev/loop0" appeared. I've got no idea what could I do with it neither know whats program trying to do! Ok formating's done, then if you're trying to mount that partition then I would expect prompt for password, but that did not happen ...

EDIT: sudo mount /dev/loop0 /media/tmp/ also complaint about wrong superblock, but that does not ring any bell since i've got no idea what /dev/loop0 is or is for...

EDIT2: I've tried another approach also:

sudo truecrypt -t -c
sudo truecrypt -t /dev/sda3 --filesystem=none

but the first command finished creating 100G drive in 1 sec (nonsense) and latter one prints:

Error: device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Command failed

Hardware :: Error Mounting - Failed To Read Last Sector (3907027119): Invalid Argument

Sep 7, 2010

I'm trying to mount my new Western Digital Elements 2tb hard drive, but every time I try to plug it into the computer I get this error message:


Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (3907027119): Invalid argument

HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),


But when I tried opening the hard drive from nautilus I still got the same error message as above (no other volumes was connected at the time). I've also tried opening and watching it in GParted, and I can see it there as a volume that's not allocated. When I tried to allocate the hard it I got the message that it had no partition table. And that I cold make one. I tried and Ubuntu suggested to make a MS-DOS partition table for it. But there I got a little scared as I've not done this before. The external hard drive is brand new and was brought today. And I don't have the possibility to test it with Windows or Mac as I'm using Linux only on my machines.

Debian Hardware :: Scanner Fail With Invalid Argument

Oct 29, 2014

This error is very difficult to solve, but also appears widespread across the Debian universe and also others like Arch and Fedora. I use a Canon LiDE 110 scanner and it has always worked very well under Linux. This same problem affects many other scanners not just the 110. Run any front end like xSane and after initially appearing to be OK it will fail with an Invalid Argument error.

But, it does not happen to everyone. I have several machines to experiment with so I did. I also used Debian Testing and Sid, Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 and various Mint versions and desktops.

The error is all to do with USB3. Plugging the scanner into a USB2 port does not in and of itself solve the issue. Nor does running the scanner through a hub. On my older laptop without USB3 hardware my scanner works like a charm using any modern Linux. On my very old spare desktop it also works fine despite having USB3.

But, on my shiny new Intel i5 on an ASUS H97I Plus it all falls apart. After much reading of forums and many dead ends we find the problem is modern machines with Intel xHCI Mode in the BIOS. It has to be off, not enabled, auto nor super auto. But when you turn it off you turn off USB3 support and your system falls back to USB2 only. My old spare machine has an AMD chipset and USB3 enabled does not cause this error.

So if you need to use your scanner and get this error then xHCI mode is the workaround. Fine if you have no real need for USB3, but most definitely a temporary solution.

Where in the system does this error come from? Too hard for me. Is it in Sane or in the libusb sub system or all the way up to the kernel? However if you have any USB device that has stopped working this setting in your BIOS has got to be worth a try. It is nothing to do with permissions or firmware.

sane-utils updated to 1.0.24-5 in sid (Dec 12, 2014) problem still exists.

Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert Hex Code Here] Failed: Invalid Argument

Mar 18, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu Karmic on my Dell Inspiron laptop - about 200 bug fixes behind because my only available internet is a cellular connection on a crappy wi-fi router - and last night, I suspended it, but it shut down instead. Not a problem, it does this fairly often, figure the RAM gets jostled or something.

But when I go to boot it up, it gets stuck at the pre-loading screen before getting garbled and dropping to the shell, where it says "mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert hex code here] failed: invalid argument". Of course, mounting /root/sys, /root/dev and /root/proc fails, (directory does not exist) and it gives me the busybox initramfs prompt.

Debian :: Crypsetup Invalid Argument Creating Partition On USB Stick

Jul 10, 2015

I have a problem trying to create an encrypted LUKS partition on a USB pen drive, but I don't know whether it is a hardware or software issue.

I just installed debian on this laptop with non-free packages:

Code: Select allroot@debianpc:~# uname -a
Linux debianpc 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1 (2015-05-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Then just to learn cryptsetup I thought it was safer playing with a partition on an old usb pen drive. But when I try the command:

Code: Select allcryptsetup -v --debug --cipher aes-xts-plain64 --key-size 512 --hash sha512 --iter-time 3000 --use-urandom --verify-passphrase luksFormat /dev/sdb2

I get the usual message (Are you sure? ...), I type yes then it fails with code 22:

Code: Select all# cryptsetup 1.6.6 processing "cryptsetup -v --debug --cipher aes-xts-plain64 --key-size 512 --hash sha512 --iter-time 3000 --use-urandom --verify-passphrase luksFormat /dev/sdb2"
# Running command luksFormat.
# Locking memory.
# Installing SIGINT/SIGTERM handler.
# Unblocking interruption on signal.

This will overwrite data on /dev/sdb2 irrevocably.

Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes): yes
# Unlocking memory.
Command failed with code 22: Invalid argument

I had /var/log/messages open in tail on another terminal, but no message appeared. I tried the same command deleting one by one the parameters, but I got the same behaviour, so I don't think it is a parameter problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Upgrade Will Not Boot "invalid Argument" Error

May 1, 2010

I did the online upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, using 64 bit. I was forced to as the 2 solutions to my incedibly slow internet lookups both required new package installs, both of which failed, so hoped it was sorted out in 10.04 TLS.

It all went to plan until it tried to reboot. I get this:

mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/1e4e276c-8741-42e7-b52e-05c195790d28 on /root failed: invalid argument
mount:mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory


I don't have RAID at all a single Samsung 200GB SATA drive as the boot drive. Can someone tell me where to start looking? Also how can a TLS release screw up so badly on a common Gigabyte motherboard?
