Fedora Installation :: 15 Fresh Install - Something Has Gone Wrong - Error On Login ?

Jun 29, 2011

I have just fresh installed Fedora 15 over my (very) old copy of Fedora 11. I wanted to play around with Linux.

Anyway, when I log in, I get the "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" (like I stated).

Fedora Installation :: Fresh Install F15 And Can't Login

May 28, 2011

I decide to install F15 (other machines run F14) and after a pretty smooth install and reboot, I try to login and get the message "Oh no, something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again". But no matter how long I try, I keep getting this message. Then I go to crt-alt-F2, and try to "yum install gnome-panel". Then it shows that I don't have any network connection at all, even though I did install my network. I'm thinking of installing F14 now.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Failed After Fresh Installation?

Jun 2, 2010

I have tried to install openSuse several times and the same problem would persistRight after installation, when the prompt to log in shows up, I enter a username and a password, but it says that login failed. I am sure I type in the correct data as I have written down the username and the password I register during the installation.Also, after the installation finishes, the computer restarts automatically, though instead of restarting it goes into a mode similar to stand by. The screen is blank and the media buttons of the keyboard are lit, but nothing happens, so I just restart manually. Could this have something to do with it

Debian Installation :: After Fresh Install Login Ok But Blanck Screen After

Dec 31, 2010

I've installed a fresh Debian amd64 DVD version on my small HP Compaq 6537s / AMD Athlon X2 / 64. Everything went fine, I rebooted, the graphical login screen appeared, so I thought I will be able at last to run Debian on a computer ...

But then after login, the login Window disappeared, the "Debian" logo too, and... that's all folks! A nice blank screen. But the mouse is still perfectly drawn, so it's kind of weird.

Here's what tells me "uname -a" :

Linux olivierdebian 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Nov 21 09:17:22 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I go to CTRL-ALT-F1, i login as root and I do a "/etc/init.d/gdm restart", I have the login screen back and this is once again the same scenario: login => ok => blank screen with mouse properly drawn and the Debian background color still there.

Debian Installation :: PPC Based IMac G5 - Fresh Install Freezes Before Login

I initially installed Debian 8 onto my iMac G5 (with KDE), and it would boot to a black screen.

OpenSUSE Network :: Fresh Install Hostname Wrong

Nov 17, 2010

Just completed a fresh netinstall of OpenSUSE. This machine previously had a Ubuntu install on it, but I was having all sorts of issues and decided I required a fresh start. The install itself went acceptably, although I ended up manually fixing GRUB.Now the system is running, I've got a ridiculous problem, in that I'm still seeing the old hostname- It used to be ubuntu-server, but should now be unimatrix-001.Checked both the obvious places (/etc/HOSTNAME & YaST), but the correct hostname is in both of them.

Fedora :: Gnome Timed Login Doesn't Work On Fresh 13 Install?

Jul 28, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 on a new computer and the timed login for gnome does not work unless you manually select it. This surprised me as I upgraded a separate computer to Fedora 13 and the timed login feature still correctly functions and does not require user interaction.

Code:
[daemon]
TimedLoginEnable=true
TimedLogin=<username>
TimedLoginDelay=3

Adding the above to /etc/gdm/custom.conf only adds an Automatic Login option that you have to manually select and then the computer will login. I would deem this less than useful.

Code:
[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=<username>

I know you can substitute the timed login with the automatic login and it will instantly login, but this provides no option to select another user. I have been unable to find any information why this feature no longer works and wanted to know if there is a new way or if anyone knows why the timed login feature was crippled.

Ubuntu :: Conky Starts Wrong With Lucid (Fresh Install)

Jun 6, 2010

I've been using conky for some time now, and I haven't changed conkyrc for a while. However, when I installed lucid (fresh install) conky starts wrong with ubuntu, like in a glass box that overlaps any window. The weird thing is that if I kill conky and start it over again manually (without the script in preferences->startup applications) it is OK. Screenshots: [URL].

Code:
# Rendimiento

total_run_times 0
double_buffer yes

Installation :: Grub Error 17 After Fresh Install

Jan 27, 2010

I have an odd problem. I custom-built a workstation:
MSI Speedster 1 mobo
2x Opteron 2352
4x DDR2 ECC 4GB
3x 150GB WD Raptor, hardware RAID 0
1x 2TB WD Green, standalone

I had Linux Mint 8 installed, but before putting the machine to real use decided to toss Windows 7 on there to see how it worked. Now I am attempting to put Mint 8 back on to get everything set up. There have been no hardware changes since I had Mint installed before.

I can successfully install, but when I reboot I get a Grub error 17. The partition table looks like:
50GB / ext4
400GB /home ext4
...
2TB /backup /ext3

Grub is installed to (hd0), which is the 450GB hardware RAID. It does not make a difference when I run the installation (and then reboot) with the 2TB drive disconnected. Thinking maybe the new ext4 format was messing with Grub, I tried:
200MB /boot ext2
50GB / ext4
400GB /home ext4
And installed again and rebooted. No dice. I'd guess Grub has issues recognizing the hardware raid, except it worked before

Fedora :: Httpd Error 98 On Fresh Install?

May 15, 2011

Sometimes httpd (the apache web server) fails to start and displays an error (98: Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80). This happens even when no other service is listening on port 80, as evident from the output of "lsof -i :80" and "netstat -A inet -lnp". This is due to a configuration file mixup. Both /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and /etc/httpd/conf.d/system-config-httpd.conf contain the directive "Listen :80". If you comment out the "Listen 80" in /etc/httpd/conf.d/system-config-httpd.conf, httpd will again start.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Blinking LXDE And Gnome - Fresh Install - Graphics Resolution Is Wrong?

Apr 7, 2011

I've borrowed a copy of 11.4 DVD install disc from someone at work, everything went fine install wise. Except Grub taking control, which I didn't ask it to, but easy fix with yast, problem is firstly my graphics resolution is wrong, but I'm trying to work that one out myself as it always seems to be happening with distros I use on my machine. The weird thing is my desktop blinks! Every 10secs or so the whole screen goes blank and then reappears? I thought it might be the wrong refresh rate, but that's at 60Hz which is correct, would it be the resolution problem?

My hardware:-
P4 2.8
1Gb ram
Geforce FX 5500
Dell 1703FP monitor

I was trying to running diagnostic's from Opensuse, but the blinking was getting on my nerves and I'm not familiar with a non Debian based OS......yet! I've got compiz and all running on the hardware in my Ubuntu install after editing the xorg.conf, could I simply copy that to my Opensuse install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Of 8.10 Over 9.10 Causes Grub 'no Such Disk' Error

Jan 27, 2010

I have a dual boot machine (Win XP + Ubuntu 9.10 on separate physical drives) which was working fine. I now want to replace the Ubuntu 9.10 with LinuxMCE which is based on Ubuntu 8.10. Using the LinuxMCE install disk, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.10 over the top of Ubuntu 9.10 (repartitioning the whole drive). On reboot, I now get a Grub "no such disk" error. I have run the boot info script which produced the following RESULT.txt:

Code:
Boot Info Summary:
=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks for
(UUID=6a59ab9e-041f-41e2-b27c-02b8ada4c1af)/boot/grub.
=> Grub 0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks on the same drive
in partition #1 for /boot/grub/stage2 and /boot/grub/menu.lst.
=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdc

Debian Installation :: Fresh Install Error - $Display Is Not Set Or Cannot Connect To X Server

Jul 25, 2014

I am currently trying out Debian in VMware Player and I installed it using the following method.

Image Used: Debian-7.6.0-amd64-netinst

In the check list where it lets you select Debian Desktop, Print Server, and System Utilities I think it was? I deselected everything.

After Debian installed and rebooted I logged in, elevated myself to su, and entered the following commands.

apt-get update
apt-get install kdm kde-plasma-desktop --no-install-recommends
reboot
startkde

and I get the error '$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server.'

Fedora :: Trashed Fresh F12 X64 Installation - USB Error Message

Mar 1, 2010

This, in conjunction with the "If nouveau refuses to die try" instructions, has now apparently basically trashed my fresh Fedora 12 x64 installation, which I had just set up. Another couple of hours gone to waste. I installed the package that Nokia offers as leigh123linux's build instructions last rpmbuild command persistently gave errors, restarted and was left with Nouveau showing some cryptic error message and finally being presented with only the console. Then I did the "if nouveau refuses to die try" part, foolishly figuring the nVidia driver might take over. Now I am left with watching Fedora's legacy boot animation (the loading bar) and then but one USB error message, nothing else. Looks like I'll be stuck with W7 for another while.

Fedora Installation :: Fresh F12 Install But No GUI

Feb 16, 2010

I recently bought an F12 DVD (from a UK supplier) which I took to be a "full distribution". But looking back on the web site it was not described as such. After booting I selected the Replace Existing Linux System option and it listed the installation of 204 packages - much smaller than the 933 packages when I installed F9.
The kernel is now FEDORA (2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE)

My problem is that I am now faced with a very intimidating terminal. I am sure the installation did not offer a graphical interface. I have tried to get Gnome running by following the Installation Guide :-
1) 7.4.2 Booting into a Graphical Environment
I type in -gedit /etc/inittab
and I get back --bash: gedit: command not found

2) 15.3 Switching to a Graphical Login
I type -yum group install "GNOME Desktop Environment"
Response -Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.

3) Again under 15.3 - bullet point 3)
Type -/etc/inittab
Response --bash: /etc/inittab: permission denied

I have now run out of ideas. I'm sure it is not supposed to be difficult but I don't understand the implications of the command line responses. I really don't want to be condemned to a win dependency.

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Update After Fresh Install Of F11

Oct 1, 2009

I recently finished a fresh reinstall of Fedora 11 on my ASUS EeePC 1000HA today. Once I rebooted, it asked for the usual "first time user thing" and I proceeded. After that screen, I was brought to the loging manager, so I logged in, and was presented with my destkop. I fired up the terminal, added myself to the sudoer's file and did a "sudo yum update" but was given the following error (the beginning of the text got cut off due to how lengthy the update list was): [URL].

Fedora Installation :: X Doesn't Start On Fresh Install (x64)

Jul 31, 2009

I just downloaded the F11 x64 DVD iso, and I when I try to install it, after the media check screen, Anaconda starts it load, but it says "X failed to start, falling back to text mode" (or something like that).
The install goes through (in text mode), and all that gets installed is the basic environment.

My specs:
- AMD X2 Phenom II 550 Callisto
- 4gb DDR2 800 memory
- 1tb Samsung SATA / 100gb Western Digital SATA
- 2x XFX Geforce 9600gt 1gb
- ASRock K10N780SLIX3-WIFI motherboard

I've tried Ubuntu x86 on the same system, but I was having issues with it, so I decided to try FC11 instead.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Fresh Install From HDD Fails With Db_version_mismatch

Jun 7, 2010

I'm currently running F11 and am trying to replace it with a fresh install of F13, using the same partitioning layout. I downloaded the F13 i386 DVD ISO using bit torrent. (The sha256sum of my downloaded ISO matches the reference sha256sum value.) I'm trying to do the fresh install of this ISO from hard drive (without burning a DVD). Last summer I did the same procedure of installing a downloaded DVD ISO from HDD when replacing F9 with F11. The installer (Anaconda 13.42) proceeds to the point where I specify my custom partitioning layout. It then prompts me about storing a boot loader. Shortly after I reply to that, the installer gets an "unhandled exception".

rpmdb: Program version 4.8 doesn't match environment version 4.7
error: db3 error (-30971) from dbenv -> open: DB_VERSION_MISMATCH

The only nonstandard thing I did was the following. According to the F13 installation guide, for installation from HDD the file "install.img" from within the ISO files must be copied to a directory named "images". The F13 installation guide gives the following procedure:

mount -t iso9660 /path/to/Fedora13.iso /mnt/point -o loop,ro
cp -pr /mnt/point/images /path/images/
umount /mnt/point

Instead, I used "Archive Manager" to extract "install.img" from my DVD ISO. I copied it to a directory named "images".

OpenSUSE :: Plasma Hangs After Login On A Fresh Install?

Apr 19, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 today and I have a problem. After login, KDE Plasma hangs for about 30sec and I can't do anything. The keyboard and the mouse are working, but if I click, I don't get any response only after about 30sec.

This is a fresh install, 32bit, I'm using only the Oss, Non-Oss and update repositories and the system is up to date.

I have an nvidia 9500M GS graphics card, first I thought it is a driver bug, but I tried both the stable 260.19.44 and the latest 270.41.03 drivers, and was no difference.

I made an another user to try with a clean kde, but the same happened.

I have nothing in my Autostart directory, and I cleaned also the /etc/xdg/autostart dir, leaving there only the pulseaudio related files.
