I am trying to install some NVIDIA drivers on my machine. I went through the process and got this message:
Code: Select allWARNING: Unable to find a suitable destination to install 32-bit compatibility libraries. Your system may not be set up for 32-bit compatibility. 32-bit compatibility files will not be installed; if you wish to install them, re-run the installation and set a valid directory with the --compat32-libdir option. URL...Where in I ran this in the terminal to create the 32-bit document tree.
Code: Select allsudo apt-get install ia32-libs
E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate.
I really just want to get these NVIDIA drivers up and running. I already installed and updated the headers to just be able to half-way install the drivers (the second monitor works now).
i got problem which slows my boot to linux. Before loading Ubuntu logo in console i see fast flash with words: "Warning: unable to find a suitable fs in /proc/mount, is it mounted? Use --subdomainfs to override." What should i do? To fix that warning?
The intention is to have this system dual-boot. When i first put it together, i decided to setup a raid5 array spanning 3 sata drives. I installed Windows 7 first, decided i'd get to Linux later. I left 150mb or so at the beginning of the array for /boot, and about 200gb at the end for my linux install. i'm getting to the linux install. My distro of choice is Fedora 12. I start the setup, and at the point where it's time to partition, the installer tells me that its unable to find any suitable storage devices.
I Crtl-Alt-F2 to a console, and fdisk -l. Fdisk reports three individual drives which all have partitions already. All have free space. None make sense. So i turned to google, and found some threads which explain that this chip doesn't run a true raid, rather its what's been referred to as fake raid. Which is that it depends on the windows driver in order to actually present the array to the OS, and that the best way to get by that on linux, is to break the array, and use LVM instead.
That's all well and good, but i lose two things in doing that. First i lose the resiliency of raid 5, and second, well, what does that do to my windows install? I've considered moving all of my data from windows to other machines, and then just starting from scratch, but i'd really much prefer a method of using the chips fake raid in linux. Is there a driver, or module which i can install to make this happen?
I have been working with ssh for a long time without problems but suddenly, without any changes to the configuration, I am facing problems. When I try to login I get the following message and the connection is closed:
Code: Unable to get valid context for tanwald I ran SELinux in permissive mode and found the following logs:
I looked for a little and everyone's problem similar to this it seems they are tunnelling for a vnc server of some sort. I am just running ssh and it fails not only from the machine, but also remotely. The username "lee" is in group "sshusers"I have two machines setup the same, as to my knowledge. In one server I can access ssh and everything works well but when I try to ssh into the other one it gives me this
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I'm still trying to find out if my coby mp3 player will actually play mtv video files as is advertised.
ffmpeg -formats does list mtv but the only command I really ever used was one to convert a vid to an mp3 so I tried Code: ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -acodec copy output.mtv it returns Code: Unable to find a suitable output format for 'output.mtv' I can't find any mtv files online for purchase or free for that matter, so I know this is all pretty obscure but shouldn't there be a way to convert them since ffmpeg lists mtv format?
Everytime I log into Gnome Desktop I get this message : failed to initialize a HAL contextHere is the exact error message when I look into auth.logQuote:gnome-keyring-daemon: failed to initialize a HAL context: (null)gnome-keyring-daemon: Scheduling hal init retry
After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:

From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.
I have been beating my head against a wall with this for more than an hour.... I purchased a new Ethernet Card to bump up the other side of my network from 10/100 to Gigabit. I previously had a 3c905c 3com card in there before. the chipset I purchased was a realtek 8169 Gigabit..... I removed the old card and put the new one in. Then I ran netconfig but realized that it was holding onto eth0 with 3com's MAC address, so I went and removed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. did a service network restart no eth0 trying to start - perfect... I reran netconfig and configured eth0 with all it settings "Netconfig Did recognise the Realtek 8169"
I saw device not initalized when doing an ifup eth0 So I lsmod and saw the 3com module still running - removed the module rmmod 3com - and checked for 8169 - not running... modprobe 8169 and then checked.. bingo its running... service network restart - same error r8169 device eth0 does not seem to be present... delaying initialization. ok - eff it - ill reboot It came up same thing - did not expect it to change... checked /etc/modprobe.conf - i see its aliased... Verified all things are running... I really don't know where to turn... Im sure I could just call it eth2 but then im going to be rewriting all my iptables "firewall rules" and im trying to avoid that.... ** yes I know I could just use sed to replace all eth0 with eth2 ** but then im not learning why and what i am missing...
I have a lenovo x200 laptop running Fedora 14, fully up to date with the Fedora repository. Seemingly out of nowhere, some websites will no longer load. First it happened to www.facebook.com, next (after a day or so) wikipedia.org, now the Fedora forum. Other Internet access seems fine, but when I try to go to these pages I just get "unable to find host" errors. Its totally bizarre. It first happened in an airport so I thought it was just a strange network there, but now it happens at home. I can't get on these sites in firefox or elinks browsers (in a terminal) BUT I can ping both sites no problem. Also, the other computers in this house have no problem visiting these sites.
I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.
He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
Using Debian Lenny. I'm trying to label my usb flash drives. I checked on the Internet and found a page, but I can't get it to work: [URL]. I umounted the usb drive. I checked it with Debian:~# blkid /dev/sda1: UUID="B1CC-3C4F" TYPE="vfat"
But when I try to make a label I get this message: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize '::' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive
If I try mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC when the drive is mounted I get this output: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Total number of sectors (7855032) not a multiple of sectors per track (62)! Add mtools_skip_check=1 to your .mtoolsrc file to skip this test but no label is attached to the drive.
I added this to /etc/mtools.conf: drive p: file=/dev/sdb1 and ran this command: mlabel p:VFAT_DOC and still can't get it to work Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize 'P:' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive

I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).
Trying to install the Suhosin module with the php 5.2.9 c5-testing repo...it won't run with the php 5.2.9 testing build (there isn't an updated suhosin package against the 5.2.9 build)
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: suhosin: Unable to initialize module Module compiled with module API=20050922, debug=0, thread-safety=0 PHP compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=0
What's the best way to handle this from an admin best practices standpoint? I want to do everything possible to keep the suhosin module tracked by yum for future updating etc. Is it best to try to find a suhosin rpm that is built for 5.2.9 and install it with yum localinstall? If not, if I build the module myself, what's the best path to keeping yum/rpm in the loop on this install for future updating via yum?
When I upgraded to CentOS5.2 from 5.1, puplet quit working:

I'm having an issue and I'm trying to figure out if the proprietary driver from ATI is actually getting installed correctly or if I'm on the open source driver still. ...and whether or not there's an advantage to one over the other...
I'm on a Sager NP3790 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics card. I've got a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 and the basic 2d functions all seem fine, but any games I try to run with OpenGL simplt fail and "glxinfo" yields:
I have downloaded the latest legacy driver from ATI (ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run) and I've not had any success running that directly. It appears to not knowingly support anything newer than Ubuntu 9.04. I have tried forcing that driver to build itself targeting 9.04 and I've tried installing the .deb packages that it produces, but with no luck there either.
If I recall this laptop's former lives, it has in the past run Eternal Lands without issue back when it was Ubuntu 8.x, but somewhere between a client update from them, some update from ATI or Ubuntu I seem to have lost my OpenGL capabilities.
I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the 22.214.171.124 kernel that I have installed the most recent nvidia drivers for (as of yesterday or day before) 260.19.12. If I boot up into run level 4 after running nvidia-xconfig in a console and run glxinfo as root I get:
bash-4.1# glxinfo name of display: :0.0 Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
If I edit /etc/profile or /home/username/.bash_profile and add the following:
I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says
direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)
my lspci -v for the graphics card looks like this:
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2353 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
I am sure I missing something from my xorg.conf but at this point I am not sure what I have been searching on this for days to no avail. From the log the only thing that looks like is a problem is it doesn't load the keyboard and mouse but it gets loaded later on in the file.
Well I downloaded Catalyst 10.12 for linux. Was trying to build packages for Fedora 14. But was unable to find Fedora entry in it. Wonder why it is not there?Here is my X
How am I suppose to install catalyst if they don't have the packages ready yet ? I am not so installing RHEL6 packages in Laughlin cause of kernel conflict. Or is it that Catalyst still not compatible with Kernel 2.6.35.x ?

I have been running F13 since it came out, with the wireless working fine since I got it working (using the RPM Fusion repository, broadcom-wl-220.127.116.11-1.fc13). Since I updated software (without reading what was to be updated), yesterday, I am unable to even find wireless networks, although I am, as you can see, able to access through eth0 It is not a hardware problem, as I can not only find them, but access them on Ubuntu 9.10 live disc.
