I am unable to download rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm from [URL]. i always get a error 404 -Not found. But i am sure my internet is working fine. I tried from windows, Fedora 14 got the same error message all the time.
During playing around sources, synaptic playing I messed up the default list. I know I should have been more careful. Anyways could someone tell me what the default the default sources.list that has free and non free etc for squueze please? I have been trying to get the default list but I cannot find it anywhere. There are alot of lists out there but nothing tagged like the "default" list.
I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.
Am I asking too much for a FREE OS? Everybody spend their precious time to help others, that's very helpful.But it seems like there is no support from UBUNTU team,how could we even get through the barrier of not using Microsoft's OSes? No free lunch of course, but it seems to me some issues have never really been solved.I read lot's of people have problem with their WIFI, not just for my OLD USB wifi adapter. I don't have problem with WIFI in XP/Server.
I posted here and there, and seems like no answer, and I do not get any reply from UBUNTU support team,forgive me if I run out of google's keywords.I just need a simple answer, is my WIFI going to work in UBUNTU with a layman effort? I like linux and UBUNTU had put great effort in providing me such a great OS, but if a basic internet connection will need to spent sooo much time to setup, and it still doesn't work. IS IT WORTH to switch to UBUNTU at all
I have 160gb laptop. i installed vista in c primary partition which is 25gb and installed ubuntu in d primary partition which is 20gb. A remainig for my data. Now i tried to install CENT OS by formatting ubuntu. I inserted CENT OS DVD and restarted and i selected to delete my /dev/sda2 which is showing 20480mb and it shown me free space. but i tried to add partion /boot of 100mb it got added. but, when i am trying to add / of 3000mb in the remaining 20380mb free space it showing an error message that no free space is available.
Is there anyway I can remote in to a fedora machine via a Win 7, Vista or Server 2008 machine and have the gui desktop? I can vnc to it but it's command line only.If possible, I'd like to use the defacto std tool called remote desktop installed with the win os.If not any are there any open source-al free tools I could install on win to get this functionality?
I've got Fedora 11 working fine on an HP Mini 2140 netbook. (Wireless works after enabling the rpmfusion repo and installing the broadcom-wl driver.) Now I want to try to put Moblin 2.0 on the netbook as a dual boot.
Unfortunately the Moblin installer (Anaconda? Looks like it.) reports that there's no free space on the / volume. It looks like what's going on is that Fedora 11 created two partitions: /boot and /; and the / partition is LVM and uses all the rest of the available space on the hard drive.
I want to continue using Fedora 11's bootloader for any dual boot. So, basic question #1: Is the solution to create another partition for the Moblin install, or to resize the existing / LV in the existing LV group, and then create another LV for the Moblin install? In other words, can I install another OS on a second LV in the same LVG?
New install from downloaded DVD. sound played after install. Installed rhymbox, which tried to install the various nonfree packages. I didn't have the keys installed so it failed miserably. From various websites I've used yum to install nonfree packages to support mp3. I now have both movieplayer and rhymbox which have no sound. Even more strangely, rhymbox 'slider' which follows the playtime remaining, simply doesn't move? Tried remove/re-install rhymbox to no avail.
I want to install a Centos 5.0 Virtualbox for Windows 7 x64. Can someone please let me know where I can go to get that, because I would like to have the virtualbox to further understand how LINUX works. I have taken a course in Redhat Enterprise Linux Computing Essentials, and I enjoyed using LINUX. So that is why I am searching for a 5.0 free download of Virtualbox.
Sun ultra 5 (sparc64) Was working previously with Lenny, installed from 5.07 netinstall CD. Tried to do a fresh install with the stock 6.0 netinstall sparc64 CD. It couldn't find my CD drive. It suggested that I install drivers from a removable media, which I suppose I could try.
I suspect that the issue is the firmware, and I'd like to try a CD with non-free firmware included to check this, as it seems the easiest. However, I am unable to find a "non-free" install CD for the sparc64 architecture. I can find x86, amd64, ppc, but no sparc64. I've done searches, looked though links on these forums, etc.
Does anyone know where I could find a "non-free" firmware included install CD for sparc64?
been away from linux for while used to use slackware mostly using debian 6.0 amd 64 I tried using the info from http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary but it doesnt work, dont have deb installed and apt-get install didnt work to install it
Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.
My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:
Okay so i have switched over from Ubuntu to Fedora13 as Ubuntu has constant hard-lock-ups for me for 3 versions straight now. Using fedora for less than a day and it's working smoothly, customised my look a bit and all that too.Only problem is F13 uses xorg1.8 and ATi's current drivers only support 1.7 and below, is there any way to get it to work with 1.8 by tricking it somehow?
I have two 250 GB drives setup with hardware RAID 1. I had on sda and sdb: 20 GB swap, 20 GB /, 198 GB /srv all was good until I started to run out of space on 20 GB /. So I booted the server with Suse 11.3 live cd and reduced the size of 20 GB swap to 10 GB and 198 GB /srv to 150 GB on sda and sdb.
All good so far, then tried to increase 20 GB / to 60 GB, but the Partition setup says the Max Size can be 20 GB, I have checked and I have 42.88 GB of Unpartitioned space. I have rescanned, rebooted, Server is still running fine by the way, but the 42.88 GB of free space is not made available for the expansion of 20 GB /.
I had ubuntu 8.10 installed, but support was no longer offered - I wasn't able to upgrade software etc. I decided to upgrade to 10.04 today. I made the boot disk as normal, but when I went to install it I got the message "This computer has no operating systems installed". The only options were to wipe the entire hard drive or create my own partitions.
I have Windows Vista installed, so I deleted the partition which had ubuntu 8.10 (and also the swap file partition) so I now have free space on the computer. However, in Vista this shows up as an extended partition with Dell MediaDirect.
When I go back to the 10.04 installer, it still does not recognize my Vista installation, and only gives me the option of wiping the HDD. From googling and searching these forums, it appears as though the problem is that the free space and the Dell MediaDirect partitions overlap and this is why the free space is not recognized by ubuntu.
I'm starting to push the limit of my /home directory. My machine is Linux/Windows dual-boot. I need to keep Windows as the machine is not "officially" mine, and so might need to go back at some point to a Windows user. All my normal Windows access is via VirtualBox. I have made my Windows partitions as small as possible, and now have an empty D partition as follows:
It's the D* partition that I would like to add to my home directory. Is there an easy way of doing this, or am I looking at a complete re-install of openSUSE?
I was playing around on my ibook g4 and thought I would try out Midori. I was pleasantly surprised to see it would allow an html5 applet to open on ...... Sadly, the video never begins playing, so I believe I must need to install the non-free codecs package...if it does indeed contain h.264.
I've used Ubuntu off and on over the years, so my knowledge of how to do a lot things is quite limited. I've been searching online for hours and can not find the information I need to install the non-free codecs...or just h.264 in general. I saw one post about adding medibuntu repositories, but the address relating to nonfree codecs for the ppc gives a 404 when it is going through the apt-get update in the terminal.
I just wanted to post this really quick. I just installed Fedora 12 and I have been playing around with it a bit. (it's my first taste of Linux) I noticed right off the bat that I needed an MP3 decoder and was having a hard time finding one. Then I found a free Legal mp3 decoder at the following address.They also offer a Fedora specific installer (.rpm) So if anybody needs a decoder, here is a good one.Since it's a free decoder I was wondering if it might be included in future Fedora releases?
Tried to update nonfree flashplugin on my Debian laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A100-VA3 today: update-flashplugin-nonfree --install This is the result: ERROR: sha512sum rejected install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz More information might be available at: [URL] What to do next. Is there a alternative to non-free?
I have just tried to install Ubuntu 10.10 and cannot find the facility to'install into the largest free space on the drive'Am I searching in vain? Is it somewhere I have missed or is it in a different form?
When we have Oracle 10g in RedHat, the free memory goes down soon after bootup of the system and never increases. I learnt from various forums that Linux does cache the disk files for the better performance. And when any application requires memory they get the memory and the caching does not block any memory. We want to capture the free memory available for one the harware planning activity.
1) When we use vmstat command, it gives very less free memory. since it caches large size files, the free memory is very low.
2) We tried free command, but how do we know how much actual free memory is available. i.e. excluding the cache usage
