Fedora Installation :: F12 - Invalid File Being Requested?

Feb 5, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 12 from a DVD created by an iso I downloaded. When the install gets to the point of actually installing files, I get a message saying that it can't find 'authconfig-gtk-6.0.0.-2.fc12.i686.rpm'. I looked at the DVD for that file and it isn't there. I found 'authconfig-gtk-5.4.13-1.fc12.i686.rpm'. Any ideas how to fix this? The DVD passed the media check at the beginning of the install. I'm not exactly a newbie in Linux as I have some experience with it.

Fedora :: Error 12: Invalid Device Requested - Win 7 + F11

Dec 4, 2009

I have installed Windows 7 followed by Fedora 11. Everytime I install Fedora 11 with Win 7, the first to boot, I get BOOTMGR missing. Later I used "df -h" command to see the disk file usage fdisk -l" to see the info regarding Disk Partitions. Went into the /boot/grub/menu.lst and modified the order. I set the partition where I find the bootmgr.exe.mui, there was another file named "memtest.exe.mui in the same file.

I navigated to the above said through Fedora 11. Located inside the Win 7 installed directory /boot/en-US/

When I changed the menu.lst file, I get a new error Error 12: Invalid device requested when I tried to boot Win 7. Does that mean that Fedora 11 GRUB is not getting the bootmgr.exe.mui since its 2 levels inside the boot directory ??

Ubuntu :: Losetup Disk Encryption - Ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid Argument, Requested Cipher Or Key Length (128 Bits) Not Supported By Kernel

Dec 14, 2010

In 10.04 I was using the following commands to mount an encrypted disk image:

Code: sudo losetup -f Which tells what loop back device block is available Then I'd type:

Code: sudo losetup -e aes /dev/loop0 /home/user/crypt.img and then enter the device's password

Code: sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/loop0 /media/crypt I've tried this in 10.10 and it hasn't been working (I can't remember if I did anything in 10.04 to make it work). I've installed the loop-aes-utils package and restarted my machine. Every time I try the 2nd step, after entering the password I get: Code: ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid argument, requested cipher or key length (128 bits) not supported by kernel

Fedora Servers :: TFTP Case Insensitive To File Name Requested

Jun 19, 2010

I am downloading some files via tftp from the server (call it my server) and I need the server to be case insensitive to the file names requested. That is If I request "SoMe.TTL" and the actual file name is "some.ttl" it should send "some.ttl" back! Right now it is case sensitive and is a pain in the but because some windows clients upload files to that directory and the names can have any case. Furthermore, the file request mechanism must allow the user to input the required file name, hence the user can write using any case. Can the tftp-server solve cases by it's own? How about dnsmasq's internal tftp server? Ok, maybe I wasn't explicit above:
I need to make the fedora tftpd-server Case Insensitive!

General :: Dual Booting WinXP & 9.04 - Error 12: "Invalid Device Requested"

Sep 28, 2009

I had Windows 7 and Windows XP. It was 3 partitions in one HD (two OS' and one for files) and another separate HD (which doesn't have any system, it's just media files and stuff). When booted, I used to get the Windows 7 screen, that allowed me to either boot 7 or XP. I thought I had tested 7 enough and wanted to try Ubuntu, so I (from the Ubuntu CD which I downloaded and burned) deleted the 7 partition and made a 2GB swap partition, and, what was left, an Ubuntu partition on which I installed it.

Now when I boot I get an Ubuntu boot screen that shows several Ubuntu options and a WinXP option. Ubuntu works fine, but if I choose WinXP, I get "Error 12: Invalid device requested". I didn't change anything more than what I said. The details for the WinXP boot option seem to be:

rootnoverify (hd0,4)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader++

What can I do to be able to boot WinXP again? (and also Ubuntu, whenever I want to). The only thing I can think of is using Windows XP CD's restore thing to restore the boot menu, but that would stop me from using Ubuntu...

Fedora Installation :: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to install 11 on my desktop from the live CD. I already have XP and Ubuntu installed, and I know for certain that I have an additional 25 GB left with my documents partition included. I am using a ~= 1 week old hard drive, so that last 25 GB is raw and unformatted.Anyway, here's what's going on: When I attempt to create a new partition in the "free space," I get an error dialog saying "Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks."I thought maybe it was a quirk with the ext3/ext4 dilemma, maybe I had to create /boot prior to /, but I tried it both ways.

Fedora Installation :: Error: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions - Not Enough Free Space On Disks

I'm trying to install Fedora 13 on my HP dv6 laptop and when I try to use the Use Free Space installation type, I receive a Partitioning Error: Could not allocate requested partitions - not enough free space on disks.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Change File Names To Remove Invalid Character

Apr 1, 2009

I am trying to copy a large number of files from a Linux server to a Windows file share. Unfortunately, all of the files and folders I have to copy have 10 numbers followed by 2 colons "::" in the name (example: 1234567890::WordDoc.doc) which of course is invalid in windows naming conventions. So now I'm trying to come up with a way to change the file and folder names on the fly to replace the colons with a dash "-" or space " ". I'm even willing delete the frist 12 characters in necessary. I have tried cp, mv, tr, and several -bash scripts but get no positive results.

General :: Device / Special File Clairification Requested

Oct 1, 2010

Device/Special file Clairification Requested.I'm reading a short article on Device/special files because it is related to VFS. This article has this paragraph that has to many pronouns in it to get an understanding of. URL..."In short, a device file (also called as a special file) is an interface for a device driver that appears in a file system as if it were an ordinary file. This allows software to interact with the device driver using standard input/output system calls, which simplifies many tasks."

What does a Device file have to do with the Application and the Driver communicating? Wouldn't the order of data transfer be , Application to driver and then to Device file?

Ubuntu :: Error - Docky Could Not Move The File To The Requested Directory

I have two issues I hope someone can help with.First I've managed to add two folders to the doc, however when I hover over the icon the name is displayed as "..." This might be because the path of the folder is "/home/eric/Desktop/500" which is a link to "/mnt/500" I cannot add the folder without the error listed below. When trying to add folders, and some applications I receive the error:

Fedora Installation :: Getting G95 From G95.org - Error: Suffix Or Operands Invalid For `push'

Apr 16, 2009

i followed the install method in the g95.org as follows.Installation Notes Unix (Linux/OSX/Solaris/Irix/etc.): Open a console, and go to the directory in which you want to install g95. To download and install g95, run the following commands:

wget -O - http://ftp.g95.org/g95-x86-linux.tgz | tar xvfz -

ln -s $PWD/g95-install/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-g95 /usr/bin/g95

everything seemed to work fine. the g95 command in terminal prompted a "no input files" so it seemed to work. i made a quick hello program to test and i get these errors.

/tmp/cc3Ugii1.s: Assembler messages:

/tmp/cc3Ugii1.s:11: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `push'

tested the program with gfortran and it worked fine. i googled around a little and it appears that the error have something to do with a 64 bit 32bit problem. i mean like the compiler is expecting 64 bit, but libraries are 32 bit. or somthing like that.

Fedora :: Rythmbox : "File Invalid And Cannot Be Played" / Fix It?

Jan 16, 2011

I recently upgraded to F14_x64 with success (aside from having to muck with Flash to make it work). Here's the problem: A certain subset of my .m4a /AAC files will not play in Rythmbox. Note that some of them work just fine. As for the ones that do not play, Rythmbox throws the error "This file is invalid and cannot be played". However, VLC can play the error-prone files just fine. The rest of my MP3/M4a collection works fine in Rythmbox. Not that is should matter, but all of the aforementioned files were obtained via iTunes (no DRM, though, and once again, they work fine in alternate players.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Dvice Requested Re Grub And MBR On Upgrade?

May 12, 2010

I have two instances of Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) I have installed grub2 and all seems OK except for a small bug with update-grub which I have a workaround for. Reported elsewhere

The working system is on /dev/sda7 My copy for testing is on /dev/sda5 gparted flags /dev/sda1 as "boot" and that partition has temp files only. update-grub found my test system on sda5 OK. I would like to upgrade 9.10 on /dev/sda5 to 10.04 (Lucid) as a trial as I had problems with this upgrade on my working system (sda7) and had to recover from a backup image - hence the test system on sda5

I would like advice on what happens to grub2 and MBR which I assume is on sda1 when I do this upgrade. I expect that the upgrade will change grub (in MBR?) to use sda5 instead of sda7 as the main grub filesystem. If not, then all is fine and I carry on as usual.

If not then how to I re-instate my working grub (/boot/grub/*) to sda7 (my working system) as far as the bootloader in MBR is concerned. Is it simply a case of backup and then re-install MBR after the upgrade? Or is there a better way or have I misunderstood something?

Install proceeds to create user name/password page then just stops. Install line below says ready when you are but I do not get a forward to come up on the screen, it just sits there. I have used different hard drives and a different cdrom drive and 2 different installation disks and it does the same thing.

Fedora :: Error: Cannot Assign Requested Address

Jun 7, 2010

Every time I upgrade my system I run a post install script. This script made some harm to the network start that prevents sshd from starting, but I was unable to detect the problem. In my boot.log I found this:

[...]
Starting NetworkManager daemon: [ OK ]
Starting Avahi daemon... Jun 2 14:58:48 Antares kernel: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

[code]...

So there is a "bind to port 22 failed" probably caused by "eth0: link is not ready", but after the sshd init script fails the eth0 is ready...

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub And 9.04 - Error "invalid Command" Or "invalid Execution Format"

Aug 16, 2011

Bottom Line: Dvd Drive died in my toshiba laptop and it was replaced (not before tech for some reason reformatted the Win7 partition... which was 100% un-needed, but thats beside the point now. I redid win7 (the tech installed vista) and am TRYING to "redo grub". Facts: The Slackware AND Ubuntu Partitions ARE STILL THERE and when i use SuperGrub Boot CD (which doesn't restore my grub by itself) to boot into slackware, i can see ALL THE CONTENT of both Linuxes still there including grub on ubuntu partition

(Tri-Boot: Ubuntu, Slackware, and WIn7) I had it working for two years or so, SO i know this "setup" works fine. I am A) Trying to do this as simply as possible. B) Trying to avoid the need to download a 800MB ISO (as seen for this issue on this forum) and trying not to have to reformat Ubuntu Partition (though I have the .Debs I have downloaded for it backed up ... all 1.7GB of them) I have /dev/sda1 as win7, /dev/sda2 as Slack and /dev/sda3 as Ubuntu (which contains Grub Legacy).. Every command I do seems to result in an error like "invalid command" or "invalid Execution format " (i think that second one is right) type errors. I compiled (awhile back) a few kernels for Slackware, but feel goofy that I cant figure what i this out (what i thought was going to be a "2 minute" fix)

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Start Wifi - WPA Passwd Always Requested

The symptom is that I'm always asked to enter the WPA passwd.

4- lsusb returns:

5- lsmod returns:

6- iwlist wlan0 scanning detects wifi networks without problems.

7- relevant dmesg entries:

8- wpa_supplicant.log

I've tried many suggestions from this forum about RT3090 or RT2800, but none worked :-(none seemed to be close to my problem:

Most of them relates to interface not seen, wifi networks not detected, system freeze.

Software :: Fax .g3 File Unreadable / Unable To Upload The .g3 File As It Is An "invalid Attachment"?

Feb 6, 2011

I have been trying to get my message modem to read .g3 files under ubuntu (now 10.04) for over a year now, and have tried absolutely every application I can find to no avail.The output is always garbage.Every application tried gives the same result, but the fax is perfect on Windows, but I don't have a Windows machine any more.

I am unable to upload the .g3 file as it is an "invalid attachment" but have saved it to url.I have (hopefully) attached the resultant output from gimp, which is exactly the same with tkusr and efax. The fax is the weekly Debt collection agency touting for business (no, I don't owe them any money - yet)

I believe they all use a common file, something like g3topbm or g3topdf.If I try g2topbm on the command line: every second line has an error e.g: g3topbm: bad code word at row 202, col 5 (len 14 code 0x32), skipping to EOL

The .g3 files are created by a USR message modem which stores the files for later download ('cos the computer gets switched off at night.)

Fedora Installation :: Apt-get Search Wget Saying Invalid Operation Search?

Apr 5, 2011

i guess this is an installation issue as i am newish to Linux and got a F14 laptop from a used/refurb store... Anyway it seem i have difficulty with getting GTK running or maybe it is WGET...?

i did manage to install apt-get and was able to run synaptics ... but now whenever i try to run synaptics it flashes the interface and crashes. i tried apt-get search wget and it says invalid operation search. i tried apt cache wget and get a crash box in the upper right corner... i tried apt-get gtk+extra-2.1.2-4.fc14 and it says invalid operation gtk...

All of which is frustrating my attempts to get the GTK interface to J working. Their script uses WGET which i also cannot get.
