Fedora Installation :: Recompile In 9 If The Packages Installed Through Yum Install Command?

Mar 6, 2009

Currently i am using mapserver 5.0.3 , AGG 2.5-6 on fedora 9. I need some help with mapserver and AGG support. I am trying to use AGG/PNG outformat in the mapfile as well as i added precisely. When i call the link through browser i recieved the following error:

loadOutputFormat(): General error message. OUTPUTFORMAT clause references driver AGG/PNG, but this driver isn't configured. It is clearly evident that from the error, the driver is not configured. since all the mapserver version 5 suppotrs AGG rendering backend, so i checked whether mapserver supports AGG or not.

[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$ mapserv -v
[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$

I found that my mapserver doesn't support AGG means SUPPORTS = AGG is missing in the above output. But i have already installed AGG in my system. In order to clear this issue i gone through many threads in forums, but i was not satisfied with the answers. Atlast i came to know that, i have to recompile the mapserver with AGG. The following link gives you some idea about compiling mapserver with AGG in linux [URL] But the problem now i am facing is i have installed both the mapserver and AGG through YUM INSTALL command so i dont know how to recompile mapserver with AGG support. I think, there will be no configuration file normally when installing through Yum insatll command.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Recompile Of Loadable Video Driver?

Jun 27, 2010

I have just installed UBUNTU 10.0.4 (32 bit Generic) on a Compaq CQ50 -AMD Athlon 64 X2 1.9GHZ . The install went flalessly, and everything simply worked out of the box. I also Installed the NVIDIA Propriatery graphics driver, and it worked OK. The box has an NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G. When I did a "free" I discovered that UBUBTU was not using all available RAM. After a bit of research I found that to fix this, I needed to change the kernel to a PAE enabled one. I installed 2.6.32-22-generic-pae #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 23:14:23.On reboot the system complained bitterly that it could not start X. With log entry:

I) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/extra-modules/nvidia_drv.so
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation" compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0 Module class: X.Org Video Driver (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA


So, I selected to boot with the "generic" driver and all was well. I then issued-- nvidia-xconfig command and rebooted again. Same problem, this time I selected to go to shell and did a reboot, thinking that the driver needed to be recompiled for the new kernel, but I got the same result.I believe I am loading an NVIDIA driver into a PAE kernel which is compiled for the non-PAE kernel.I tried to de-Install/Re-Install the propriatery driver while running under the PAE kernel, but the driver still fails to load.

Slackware :: Update Niggles With Keyboard & Synaptics Driver?

Apr 27, 2011

I've gone from 13.1 to 13.37, and hit this problem. The Irish (~=gb) is gone to US, and the bar along the side of the touchpad no longer works.

So I went to the Backup (Yes, stop laughing, I had a backup) and copied in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/* which had the files for sorting slackware-13.1, but _they_ did nothing after a reboot. I have

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Modify Resolution 800x600 With S3 Driver

Sep 6, 2010

I've performed a fresh installation of Lubuntu 10.04 on a rather old PC hardware. Unfortunatly the displayed resolution is only 800x600 although the used graphic card can run with higher resolution (at least with Windows). According to this thread one could modify the resolution using xorg.conf. Below the information for the graphic card:

Fedora :: Empathy Recompile - Configure Error (No Package Found)

Aug 28, 2010

Anyone recompiled Empathy on Fedora? I have problem of configure and make as following:

checking for LIBEMPATHY... configure: error: Package requirements (
glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0
gio-2.0 >= 2.16.0
gio-unix-2.0 >= 2.16.0
telepathy-glib >= 0.7.31
libmissioncontrol >= 4.61

No package 'telepathy-glib' found
No package 'libmissioncontrol' found
No package 'telepathy-farsight' found
No package 'farsight2-0.10' found
No package 'gstreamer-0.10' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBEMPATHY_CFLAGS and LIBEMPATHY_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Fedora Hardware :: Not Able To Enable Synaptics Touchpad

May 8, 2010

Okay here is a good one. I am running KDE and i am trying to use the instructions found here [URL] to enable the touchpad tapppping. I have done it this way before successfully but now i seem to be having a problem. When i started all i had was a 10-synaptics.fdi file that just had the word synaptics on it...then when i tried to modify it the only change that took place were the addition of 1 2 3 after it. I've tried over and over with different editors with the same result and no touchpad tapping.

Fedora Hardware :: Synaptics Settings In Xorg Resetting

Jun 17, 2010

When I reboot, and check "synclient -l" all the options except the last two ("VertTwoFingerScroll","HorizTwo FingerScroll") are configured the way I made it. These keep getting reset to zero and I tried adding this snippet to the end of files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d but to no avail.If I do "synclient VertTwoFinger Scroll=1" then it my two finger scroll works, but I want it to be permanant. Anyone have a clue why it keeps going back to 0?

Fedora Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Working Intermittently?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm running F13 on an HP-dv6 with a Synaptics touchpad. I have not had any problems with the touchpad until the latest kernel upgrade to Now, intermittently with no obvious cause, yhe Synaptics driver fails to load at boot resulting in a dead touchpad. I've tried altering my xorg.conf with no results. The error message I get during boot when this happens is:

unable to query Synaptics hardware I've done some Googling as well as searching these forums and have found several suggestions, none of which seem to work. I already have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf which reads:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "TapButton1" "1"

When it works it works great. Just seems to be no rhyme or reason for it. When it's not working and I try to run synclient I get an error that the synaptics module is not loaded. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or is it just me?

Fedora :: Synaptics Touchpad: Multitouch Works In Ubuntu / Windows

Jul 3, 2010

I just found out that many Synaptics touchpads are capable of multi-touch and it's possible to do 2-finger scrolling and more.I have enabled this functionality in windows and I am sure now that the touchpad inside my laptop is capable of that.In Fedora 13 (64-bit), however, I was unable to make it working. I found a guide for Linux (Ubuntu) right here:URL... In Ubuntu it multitouch worked without problems after following the guide.

I first thought that I screwed something up on my Fedora and downloaded/ran live Fedora 13 64-bit disk to see if this trick will work with Fedora intact. After trying that guide in live Fedora CD I quickly found out that I couldn't enable multitouch the same way as on Ubuntu.I have no idea what could be different. Both Fedora and Ubuntu had Synaptics driver installed on live CDs (and on my installed Fedora too).

Fedora Hardware :: Parallel Printer CUPS Fedora 15 HP Doesn't Install Driver

Jun 3, 2011

This post is for an HP parallel printer but I think it should work for at least "some" other parallel printers.I am sure that someone smarter than me will follow up this post with a "well, just do this and that" and you will have your HP Laserjet 6P printer ready to go, but since questions litter the forums of MANY distros on how to get "at least" an HP parallel printer to work, I'll post this anyway.This may or may not work for you if you do not have an HP but you can try it.The install printer box will let you do an install for an HP Parallel and it asks for how it is to talk to it, through CUPS sock or "local host'. When we get through what I recommend you should chose "local host".

Fedora :: Way To Modify GDM?

Jul 25, 2010

Recently I installed Fedora 13 (GNOME) on my computer, I previously had Ubuntu 9.04.For the most part everything has been painless, here are though some things I need help on.

1. Is there a way to modify GDM? Every time I boot up and go to login, the login manager is very small and doesn't fit the screen.

2. Is there a way to add a shutdown option directly up on the top right panel where you usually log out? It's kind of annoying to have to log out, then shut down instead of just shutting down directly.

3. Because I starting using Linux with Debian based system (Ubuntu), I got used to sudo. Since Fedora uses su, can someone tell me the proper way to use it? Personally I find installing a program through the terminal faster than Add/Remove.

4. This is my biggest grip upon moving over to F13. For some reason certain programs don't display properly after launching them. Example, I installed OpenArena, a first person shooter, and launched it to play it, however, everything looks distorted. It's slanted diagonally. I think it may have something to do with the nouveau drivers that, if I remember right, are installed by default on F13.

I attached a screenshot of how Blender looks on launching, it's the exact same problem in OpenArena. Is there a way I can modify nouveau's settings or uninstall it all together? And/or tips on this issue?
