Fedora Hardware :: Since Update-rc.d Is Not Valid?
May 1, 2011
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora (because of Unity) and everything works just fine. my printer. It is Canon LBP6000. A had problem installing it in Ubuntu as well, but finally I did manage it with this tutorial. Problem is that this tutorial does not work in Fedora, since update-rc.d is not valid in Fedora. I am not really a linux geek, just a long time user of Ubuntu. I can follow any tutorial given, but I havent found one for this printer & Fedora. Canon site says that this printer is tested on Fedora 12 and 13 64bit but I doubt it anyway. I am running Fedora 15 beta 64bit with Gnome 3.
I recently upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14. Now, when I run the Software Update graphical utility, I am getting an authorization failure. I tried using yum update from a command line after issue the SU command and it seemed to work. I would much prefer to use the graphical utility but can't figure out how to give myself permission for this. I also noticed that my graphical shutdown utility is now disabled (grayed out).
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 try to do a upgrade on my fedora 6 ill 10. But when I try to write yum update or yum upgrade on my server a get this error: yum update Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up update process Setting up repositories Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
I have a problem with 32Bit Fedora. I have it installed on my desktop pc, and it works, but in my laptop it doesn't. On my laptop, I have 64Bit, but wanted to reinstall and use 32Bit instead. Whenever I try to install 32Bit, the loading bar finishes, then the screen goes black, and enters the terminal, blinking rapidly, spamming mtrr 3 not used. I've tried a few things to fix this, but I haven't had any luck.
I have another similar problem with 32Bit on my desktop. It is working right now, but yesterday I installed a NVidia driver, and the mtrr 3 error occurred, forcing me to reinstall, without the NVidia driver.
EDIT: I tried
Then i ran
X -config /boot/xorg.conf.new
The errors that show up are these:
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): [drm] error creating device, setting NoAccel (EE) NOUVEAU(0): 1432: No valid FB address in PCI config space (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

I'm running Fedora 11 x86_64 (GNOME) and I'm having a problem installing ANY themes from http://art.gnome.org. Any time I try to install a theme I get an error that it's "appears to not be a valid theme" When I first click the install button and navigate to my theme packages, I don't see the [dot] theme file, which is a red-flag. I change to "All files" and I tend to see an "index.theme". Is this the correct file?
I've install F10 to use it as server and router and found a strange problem on my XP machine which is behind the F10. I've tried to update my Lineage2 client from official server but the update crash, tried to open the web page it didn't open. Also tried to open microsoft web it didn't open. When i try to open the same pages on PC with F10 they open with no problem.
running Windows 7 64bit with VMware Workstation 7.01-build 227600. I have some knowledge of Linux, I have installed f12 and have updated the system as of 03/22/2010. All updates completed successfully.
1) How do I install VMTools on the f12 (after mounting the CD/DVD tool package)
2) How do I update the gcc files it says are dependencies?
Here's what I get on installation:Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...
make gcc kernel headers of the running kernel
and then I am prompted for this input from the install script:
Searching for GCC... The path "" is not valid path to the gcc binary. Would you like to change it? [yes]
and this is where I get stuck. How do I get around this or satisfy the requirements for the install?
My centos 5.6 firewall server shares its Internet connection with my windows machine behind it. After the required settings, the windows machine can ping valid ip addresses but it cannot browse valid url (despite the fact that DNS is set for it).
Yesterday i have installed F14 and then went to the comand line to update the system via yum update. It was about 860MB of updates in 430 packages. The strange thing is that only one package was a delta rpm and all other were normal rpm. Is Fedora giving up on presto or it needs some special configuration?
Attempting to move from Xen to VMware, have dd old xen disk to image file and loaded in vmware. The disk is visible when running from a knoppix rescue disk however it can only be mounted as /dev/sda
On the Xen vm fdisk -l shows /dev/sda as: Disk /dev/sda1 doesn't contain a valid partition table
This also reflects in the DD image. I'm assuming this is because it was part of a volume group ?? on the Xen Server. As it is mounted as /dev/sda on the knoppix rescue cd I can't run grub or seem to mount it as /dev/sda1 after recreating the partition in fdisk. How can I reinstall grub on this and get it to boot ?
I have lubuntu 11.04 (much the same as Ubuntu Natty 11.04), and I am trying to install Minitube. I found a package in package manager, but it turns out to be version 1.3, two versions outdated. I am now trying to upgrade via ppa and terminal, but it turned out to be rather difficult. I have followed guidelines I found googling, but neither of them resulted in anything. I get error messages like "command not valid", or I get lost some where in the process when something doesn't run as smoothly.
Got myself a brand new 64gb flash drive, I was partitioning it and never got it back on. Im only seeing the 7mb raw partition mounted. Thats the only thing I can see and partition! I've tried so far to create a MSDOS p.table and fdisk. It just doesnt find the 64gb
I recently had one of my computers motherboard die and so I moved the hard drive to another linux machine so I could access the data. The hard drive is installed correctly and I've mounted several logical volumes on the drive ok, but I'm having trouble with the two volumes which were encrypted. The LVM Gui in Fedora is ignorant to any encrypted LVMs so I looked around to see if others have solved this problem and found the following command: # cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home luks-fedora
My Logical volume container is vg_delldesk and the encrypted volume is lv_home - when I execute this command I get the following error: Device /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home is not a valid LUKS device. I have access to the root partition from the old box so the config files are there to reference the old setup if needed. My current box is Fedora 14 x_64, I have dm_crypt mod installed in the kernel as well.
I was trying to set up a partition on my netbook's hard drive, and foolishly forgot to backup my home folder. Now, Ubuntu (10.04, btw) won't boot. It allows me to get into the manual recovery shell, though. Now, I'm perfectly willing to reformat, but first I'm hoping I can recover the files from my home folder without having to take my netbook to the ridiculously overpriced computer repair centers in my area.
I have an external hard drive, but when it's plugged in during the recovery shell, it won't register as being a valid directory. I know the commands to copy or move a directory, but without my external reading as a valid directory to move my home folder to, I'm kinda stuck. Is there any other way to recover the contents of my home folder without having to go to a computer repair place? Neither of the ones in my area know much about linux at all, and I really don't want to have to pay $80+ to have someone else recover my home folder.
