Fedora :: F13 Update Broke Boot Loader

Jan 3, 2011

I just ran yum update, which installed about 47 packages. When I try to restart, the Linux boot loader is not being read. Apparently, the old Windows 7 boot loader that came installed on this machine is still somewhat intact on the hard drive, because when it boots, it tries to start Windows. I put in a Red Hat 5 rescue disk...but the rescue disk can't find a Linux file system on my hard drive.

Fedora 13
Dell Latitude E6500
Also...the disk is encrypted.
(Not the swap or /boot)

General :: Recent Ubuntu Update Broke The GRUB Loader?

Sep 21, 2010

install Ubuntu inside Windows in the first place, thinking that would be the easiest way to get him into Ubuntu. Now, I can't figure out how to repair his grub loader without killing his Windows XP installation.

I'm a Windows guy (have to be, I'm a gamer), so my knowledge of Ubuntu is limited to whatever I can do in the GUI. The command line is beyond me at the moment ('cause it ain't DOS). More so because I have an identical installation to his system (I built both), and I'm wondering if this is about to happen to me too.

SUSE :: Recovery - Update The Boot Loader?

May 28, 2010

I'm running Suse 9 service pack 2. I have the recovery cd in the system and have issued the following command /sbin/mkinitrd -m "reiserfs aacraid mptscsih jbd ext3" -b /tmp/kevin/boot -d /dev/sda2

They system responded with : Root Device: /dev/sda2 (mounted on / as reiserfs) Module List: reiserfs aacraid mptscsih jbd ext3 You may have to update your boot loader configuration QUESTION: How do I update the boot loader from the where I am now?

Note: the reason that I need the bott information is because during maintenance the module reiserfs was left out the kernel file when the a previous mkiniterd command was issued cuasing /dev/sda2 not to mount and the system to go into a kernel panic.

Fedora :: YUM Update Broke Wordpress And Gallery

Dec 17, 2009

I ran a yum update a couple days ago, and it completed without error. Today I tried logging into Wordpress, and was unable to do so. I get a 403 error. Further investigation shows that I can no longer run any php scripts for Wordpress or Gallery. A look through yum log shows the following packages were installed:

Dec 13 11:22:52 Updated: mysql-libs.i386 5.0.88-1.fc10
Dec 13 11:23:57 Updated: qt-mysql.i386 1:4.5.3-9.fc10
Dec 13 11:37:40 Updated: mysql.i386 5.0.88-1.fc10
Dec 13 11:37:47 Updated: mysql-server.i386 5.0.88-1.fc10

There were no updates to apache, php, or SElinux, so I am at a loss to explain why apache is no longer able to run php scripts.

Fedora :: Update Broke Library Links After Restart

Feb 5, 2010

I ran the automatic update today and it requested a restart afterwards. After the restart, I don't have any icons on my desktop, can't open windows other than the terminal. If I try to run software from the terminal, I get the following error.

/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version 'GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version 'GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

I have seen "just removed the library with an issue" or recreate the links or try to reinstall. I am running fedora 12.

Fedora :: Update Broke Computer - System Locked Up

Feb 12, 2010

Wednesday I went to work, docked and fired up my older Dell C840 laptop (running Fedora 12). It had a long list of updates that it downloaded and installed (it had been off for about a week). When the updates were finished, I noticed that my laptop had locked up. After waiting a while, I ended up doing a cold reboot. After that, I get the Fedora symbol that fills up, and then the screen goes black with a single cursor. You can type in anything and it is reflected- even control and ALT codes. If you hit CTL- ALT-F2, it goes into a terminal mode. You can do almost anything that you'd normally do in terminal mode. The video driver is the original off the install disk, and it's never been changed- it works fine right out of the box.

If I try to start up X-Windows, I get a segmentation fault error. I've tried deleting and then re-installing some of the packages that were updated (trying this via yum), no difference. I don't know what else to do. I need to get this laptop going before next week- it's my work computer and I do use it a lot. Is there any way to get in touch with the people who wrote the updates, and file a bug report? I'm using my main (home) system right now, that for a couple of reasons needs to stay on windoze XP for a few more weeks. I've been around computers for years, but not Linux.

Fedora Networking :: Update Broke 3G - Modem Disappeared When Try To Connect

Apr 30, 2010

I have a huawei e230 modem that used to work pretty good until this week. It has always been much slower on linux than windows but I am not complaining because windows keep disconnecting ever hour or so, while linux can stay connected over night without problem. The modem is still recognized but when I try to connect it suddenly disappears.

Fedora :: Cannot Run F11 After Update - Grub Loader

Dec 8, 2009

I'm relatively new to linux. I got fedora 11 working as a dual boot on my computer a few months back. I accepted all Fedora updates yesterday. Powered down my computer at the end of the day, and today it won't run fedora. It gets into the grub loader and there is an extra kernel (Fedora 2.6.30.9-99.fc11.i586, Fedora 2.6.30.9-96.fc11.i586, Fedora 2.6.30.9-167.fc11.i586, Windows). Clicking on any of the kernels to load linux starts it up, the bar at the bottom of the screen goes from blue to white and fedora 11 lights up, but then the screen goes blank and I am never given the option to login. If I select the windows loader, I am able to get into windows. I have pressed escape or removed the quiet line in the loader, but haven't seen any errors on loading.

Fedora Installation :: Repair To The Grub Boot Loader To Boot Into Win 7 ?

Oct 23, 2009

I have XP, Win7 Pro and F 11 installed. Before I installed F 11, Win 7 boot mgr was working fine. I then installed F 11 and I went to System/Admin/bootloader to edit it and it wouldn't bring up the boot loader. In the attachment was the error msg. Now my only option when I boot up is F 11.

I do not have access to the Win 7 DVD only the F 11 install disk since I am on a fishing trip and need to use Win 7. How can I repair to the grub boot loader to boot into Win 7?

Fedora Installation :: Multi Boot System - Set Up The Boot Loader ?

Mar 18, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora onto a computer that has Windows XP on the first of two SATA drives. Windows 7 is on the second drive.

I installed Fedora no problems on a 14 gig free space I created on the first drive and told it where and what my other OS's were. Fine so far. I didn't tell it to overwrite the MBR on the XP (first) drive. I took the second option which I "think" put the boot loader on the fedora partition.

All good - till I rebooted and I just saw my Windows 7 loader with my options for XP and Windows 7 but no Fedora.

So, if I overwrite the MBR on the first drive, will that mean I can't access my Windows 7 installation?

How SHOULD I set up the boot loader?

Fedora :: Uninstalled GRUB Boot Loader ?

Aug 30, 2010

As I attempted to uninstall an MP3 decoder through the command line, I may have also uninstalled the boot loader to Fedora 13. I entered the command to uninstall the program as su - , left for a second, and upon my return I noticed a lot of things were being uninstalled. After canceling the process I turned of my computer and now when I try to start it, my computer freezes after the Fedora icon appears on the blue screen. After looking through the online manuals, I think I uninstalled the GRUB boot loader. I've been trying to reinstall it through the image on the DVD, but it keeps getting stuck on the blue screen. I use a Toshiba satellite with no partitions.

Fedora Installation :: Default Boot Loader On F14?

Dec 12, 2010

Brand new to Fedora. I installed F14, the 64 bit version today. Just wondering, during the install, there really wasn't a lot of options regarding which bootloader to use nor options (use a graphical or text mode).So... what bootloader did Fedora install on my system? Can I modify it? I'd like to get rid of that ugly blue-ish back ground among other things.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Installed Over Windows Boot Loader ?

Jun 18, 2010

I have two hard drives, one (hard drive C) is 250GB and is the first hard disk. The second (hard drive Z) is 1000 GB and is the second hard disk in order. There used to be windows XP on C and Windows 7 on Z.

Because I installed 7 to Z from XP which is on C, it put the Windows Boot Loader on hard disk C. I didn't know this until now.

When I installed Fedora, I gave it all of C to install on. That messed up something because the Windows Boot Loader was on that drive, so grub didn't list it in the OS's to load. I had to add it manually, and got it working correctly so it had an entry for the partition that Windows 7 was on. This didn't work however, because Windows 7 on drive Z didn't have it's NTLDR on that drive, so now I have a 7 installation without an NTLDR on Z and a Fedora install on C. I am sure grub is working properly because when I change the load order of the hard drives to load Z first, it gives the same error:

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart

or something along those lines.

Is there a way to get Z to have an NTLDR again and be able too boot Windows 7? I really hope I didn't mess up my entire 7 installation because of this.

Red Hat / Fedora :: LILO Boot Loader Does Not Show Windows XP?

Dec 9, 2008

I have a PC with 2 Hard drives one of which has Windows XP Pro installed. I installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 on the other drive choosing LILO as the boot loader. When I reboot LILO only displays Red Hat 7.2 When I boot Red Hat and go into KDE boot settings I can see that hda has Windows NT. hdb has Red Hat 7.2. I then tried to make the Windows NT partition the default entry. When I try to confirm this an error displays warning me of danger if I proceed. Is there any way to make LILO recognize Windows (preferably without having to reinstall Red Hat), perhaps by installing another bootloader application!

Fedora Installation :: Can't Find A F11 Entry In Grub Boot Loader?

Jun 10, 2009

I successfully installed Fedora 11 from the DVD iso. At the end, the installation program prompts me to reboot the system. But when the boot loader appears after rebooting, there are only the old entries.

I have 2 IDE disks and one sata disk. The first IDE disk is hd0, the second IDE is hd1. The SATA disk is hd2. In the setup, I selected hd0 to install grub. Fedora 11 was installed on the SATA disk (hd2).[edit] I forgot to say, that Fedora 10 is on /dev/sda and Fedora 9 on /dev/sdb

Fedora :: Separate Window Boot Entries From Grub Loader?

Mar 16, 2011

I have PC with following specs:
Intel E7500 CPU / Intel G31 Motherboard
Kingston 800MHz 2GB RAM
Hitachi 500 GB SATA HDD + Seagate 160 GB SATA HDD

I initially had only 500 GB HDD. I installed two installations of Windows 7 Ultimate - one 32-bit and one 64-bit installations. Both working fine.

Later on I installed the 160 GB HDD and installed Fedora 13 in it in a partition. The rest space of the 160GB I am using with Windows for storing data.

Now, the boot entries of both Windows installations are in the Grub Loader of F13. Means, if I remove the 160GB HDD, I cannot boot into my Windows installations.

Now I want to remove the 160 GB HDD and install a new 2TB hard-drive. That way, I cannot log into my Windows. And I do not want to lose the Linux installation also.

How can I remove the 160 GB HDD and install a new one without sacrificing my Windows installations?

OR...Is it possible that I can copy complete image of F13 on to the new HDD, so that things are same for the Windows installations?
