Fedora Installation :: FC14 Very Slow Opening Website Pages?
Dec 27, 2010
I just installed FC14 on 2 different PCs. It takes over 40 seconds for either of them to open some webpages, ie amazons home page. It is not my internet connection. I can open the same webpage on both my Windows PCs in less than 5 seconds. I was using FC9 up until 1 month ago, and I believe it took about 15 seconds to open amazon, but I never actually timed it. I spend many hours a day on the internet and have used FC for many years. I have been very happy with it. Until now. My PCs are 1.8GHZ single processor and 2.4GHZ dual processor. Do I have to revert back to FC9 to fix this, or use a different distro?
I recently bought my laptop (Fujitsu nh540) and installed FC14 on it. I have Integrated WLAN Atheros HB97 (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) (more info here about the config) running on: 184.108.40.206-91.fc14.i686.PAE
Since I installed FC I've had problems with the internet. In any browser pages load very slow, it looks like the browser waits some seconds, sometimes even 1-2 minutes until it actually starts to load the page.
Second thing I saw is that when it boots I keep getting: Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable? [FAILED] But I have WiFi internet. I am not using a wired internet connection.
I installed madwifi driver (compiled it, after reading some info on google and it seems it should be good for my network) and it seems it's a bit better, but I still have to wait some seconds until it starts loading pages. I tried different browsers, it makes no difference. On my other 2 laptops I have no problems, the internet works fine, same goes for my android mobile phone. Another "nice" problem I noticed is that when compiz is enabled I see incoming video on skype black and the same black screen for some movies with some programs. After disablig compiz, all works for video.
I am having problems with website load speeds. I have fendora 15 and windows loaded on my machine. When I am in windows the internet connection is fine but when I am in fedora everything is slow. I am connecting wirelessly to a netgear router using a D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adapter
I have not installed anything for the wireless card.
I have tested my speeds from here [url] and I know that I am getting around 7000kb down.
I have gone into firefox to about:config and set network.dns.disableIPv6 to true... but everything is slow.
We just recently started using Linux Ubuntu. I've been having trouble opening PDF files. I can open and close just a few PDF files one at at time, but then suddenly when I click on the PDF link, it opens up to a blank page. After that, all I get are blank pages
I have a strange problem with my browser(s), even Epiphany....when I go to my music site [URL] then log in, go to my page and click on link to play a song the browser Crashes. It never did this before and I dont know what I could have done to cause this. It only does this on this website. Could it be that they use a Quicktime plugin to play the music? I don't know cause I used to be able to play music on there before. It doesnt do this on my Reverbnation site page, just Icompositions. If I click on the icon to restart browser a box comes up saying "we're sorry"...your browser crashed for no apparent reason.....and offers a choice to either reload the page (that repeatedly crashes) or start new session. It isn't a big deal but this never used to happen before. Could it be some bad code on that website?
I am using KVM and created four guest Operating systems on it. The server host is Ubuntu 10.04.I am using 4 websites in a reverse proxy environment. One of our website is running on CentOS VM. Right now there is no traffic on the website static HTML pages. I do not have any clue as why it was taking longer time to be accessed.
I'd like to know if this is common security flaw or normal to open up FTP to the public which is of course protected with password for 3rd party access to maintain our public facing / production website ?
If yes, what sort of FTP application to install in Ubuntu ?
I decided to upgrade my FC installation to the latest version - FC itself offered the upgrade when I turned the machine on, so it appeared that it was nicely packaged to make the upgrade easy.After a long download of packages, the machine rebooted and then started taking me through configuration options (timezone, disks to use for the installation etc) but then it crashed trying to write to disk and now leaves me at a grub prompt whenever I boot.Is there any way to "get at" the installation files and get back into trying to install or do I now need to download an ISO and burn a DVD and start all over again?
I'm trying to install FC14 on my box... without any success so far
The problem: when it comes to write the partitioning scheme to the disk, the system freezes. This occurs with the following CD images: - Fedora 14 LXDE live image. Installation using "Install to Disk" script. - Fedora 14, regular i386 image - Fedora 15 (beta) LXDE live image
I did further tests and found out that I could simply reproduce the problem by trying to write a partition on /dev/sdb using fdisk: - after executing the fdisk 'w' command, the system hangs for about 10-15 seconds - no kernel message can been seen during this time using dmesg - after those 10-15s, the system freezes. I have no other option but power off the machine.
There is no Hardware problem with the disk itself. I can read/write partition on that disk without problem using another distro.
I'm trying to get dial up working using wvdial, kppp or system-config-network. Whatever I try, it shows "no modem found." I'm using a US Robotics serial modem that's worked with other linux set-ups, so I know it's not the modem. What's the command to find a serial modem in the terminal? lspci doesn't show it.
And any info on getting any of these to work..especially system-config-network! Had it working with linux Mint's LXDE on an older Thinkpad, but something happened after an up date (kept saying that an IBM system was detected and refusing to load a module when it booted.) After update, didn't show that warning, perhaps loading the module.
Old Thinkpad hasn't loaded an operating system since! Won't even load gparted so I can get something else on it.....so I'm sticking with Fedora until I can figure it out. Got another old Thinkpad, don't want to repeat the same mistake. Guessing that it's a debian problem, as Mint's never broken anything before.
I am trying to install 2 or 3 versions of linux on my hardisk of 500GB capacity. The configuration of my machine is Intel Dual Core, 4 GB Ram, 3.0 Processor Windows XP is not installed on this. I tried to use a tool called GParted but was unable to use as it was not able to bring up the XServer So I booted the machine with fedora14 installation CD and chose "Custom Layout" After reading about the partitions needed by Fedora I created 3 partitions in /dev/sda /dev/sda1 the boot of 500MB formated as ext4 /dev/sda2 the swap of 6096MB formatted as swap /dev/sda3 / size 150GB formatted as ext4
The installation went well and fc14 runs well on this. However when I went to install the other linux version ....the installer was not able to recognize the unallocated space of nearly 350 GB on the hard disk.....So I am not able to create new partitions and then install the new linux on the newer partition. As a result I am unable to make use of the remaining space on the HDisk. I think I should have created /dev/sda4 /dev/sda5 etc when I installed fc14 itself....
I'd like to know if this is common security flaw or normal to open up FTP to the public which is of course protected with password for 3rd party access to maintain our public facing / production website ? If yes, what sort of FTP application to install in your Linux webserver?
I installed mysql on FC14, but can't successfully create a new user. It lets me go through all the steps without complaint, but then I can't log into mysql as the new user.
Here's what I did.
1) yum install mysql mysql-server 2) service mysqld start ##sets up mysql 3) mysqladmin -u root password myownsecrectpass ##create a root password 3b) mysql -uroot -p; #log in as root, this works fine 4) CREATE DATABASE webdb; 5) CREATE USER 'anewuser'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password123'; ##create anewuser with a passwd 6) GRANT ALL ON webdb.* TO anewuser@'%'; 7) FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Then I log out of mysql as root and try to log in like this mysql -uanewuser -p
I enter the password and get this error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I am going to set up a home server (command line only) with 2 x 1 GB HD and 4G memory. hat partitioning scheme would you recommend? Not more than 5 users Fedora Core only Will host a web page Will run DNS, DHCP, SAMBA, LAMP, NTP, Firewall, etc.. Just normal stuff.The server will host a large amount of video/audio/picture files
New 320 Gig HD. Installed FC14 from DVD and it worked, except there are no icons at all to get started as there were in FC 13. Cant find "Places", "Applications" that were at the top of the screen. Now it's blank except for the splash design. Tried to re-install, but it won't do that. Just goes to the HD and the same blank splash screen. Thanks for the help. Please be easy with explanations as I'm new at this.
I had a FC13 box which I ran a yum update which obviously does updates to the packages installed. My issue is that its tried to upgrade the kernel to FC14 and that has toasted by install. now when the box boots up I get this on the screen.
[ 1.741672] Kernel Panic - not syncin: VFS: unable to mount foot fs on unknown -block(0,0) [ 1.741715] Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted 220.127.116.11-90.fc.x86_64 #1 [ 1.741754] Call Trace: [ 1.741789] [<ffffffff81468d6f> panic+0x8b/0x10d
there are a few more lines like te last one. I've tried a rescue disk but no good. is my box toasted for good? I've used a live cd and can still the data on the box, is there any way to resue this situation? or is it run live cd backup the data and do fresh install?
After doing an upgrade from FC14 to FC15, I then updated the packages by doing: yum update yum yum clean all yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync I then get the following voluminous list of issues (148 pre-existing rpmdb problems). I've done an rpm --rebuilddb but no help.
Running rpm_check_debug ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve: libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0()(64bit) is needed by gthumb-2.12.3-2.fc15.x86_64 Please report this error in [URL]

Well, it appears that downloading and installing libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0 seemed to fix all the subsequent yum error messages, and I was able to install all the packages.
My system with kernel-126.96.36.199-74.fc14.x86_64, NVIDIA 3800 + Samsung 2233 and 3Dvision kit works fine, but upon upgrading to kernel-188.8.131.52-92.fc14.x86_64 the system won't go past the blue->white bar along the screen. The modprobe.d directory has the file blacklisting nouveau and there is the grub entry rdblacklist=nouveau, but do I need to re-run the nvidia installer. If so I think I need to reset the init level to stop X11 trying to load. and will I need to keep doing this everytime I upgrade the kernel if I have nvidia drivers installed?
I am unable to boot with kernel 184.108.40.206-92.fc14.x86_64 which was installed while applying software updates. It hangs with the last message issued "Registering binary handler for Windows Applications". Searching led to it being related to a problem with the nvidia drivers. I followed the directions in several posts - delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf, reboot, run nvidia-xconfig, reboot and all is fine, but not in my case. The first reboot works but the screen is wrong. There is a 1 inch wide black border around the presentation window. If I then do the nvidia-xconfig and reboot, i am back to where I was before - boot hangs after issuing "Registering...". If I boot to the last good kernel, everything works fine. This happened to me once before and I was able to fix it by rebuilding the nvidia kernel (I think that was what I had to do), but I can't find out how to do that. I have akmod and kmod installed which are supposed to take care of this problem. I booted to kernel 13-92 recovery mode, deleted the xorg.conf file and ran nvidia-xconfig from there. Still fails. I don't know what to list here, but I will do my best to supply whatever is necessary.
I am about to upgrade my wife's PC from FC12 to FC14. The DVD boots OK and the disk check passes OK. The installer get to the point that it says 'Running Anaconda' (or words to that effect), then the screen is cleared, a brief flash of garbled graphics appears at the top of the screen, then all goes blank.
If I select the option to install using a basic video driver, I get the expected installation screens appearing centred but scaled down within the display, as though the image was a 640x480 window in, say, a 1024x768 display (those figures are guesses, but give the right idea).
I can install this way, but first want to check that this will not leave me with a scaled-down display when I boot to FC14. In other words, will FC14 recognise my (elderly) video card correctly, even though the installer does not?
The machine is running fine under FC12 and I did not strike this problem when I upgraded it to that version.
I have tried the upgrade using two different DVD images, in case one had a fault that the disk check did not pick up.
I have a copy of 9.10 that was downloaded at the time of the official 9.10 release. I don't know if there has been improvements made in this area since then. But but anyone know why 9.10 accesses web pages realllll slowly for me. It seems to boot up normally and web pages load normally but connecting to the web page takes a long time, like 10-15 seconds.
Running Squeeze, with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64. I do not find out how to enable 3d acceleration with my Intel 945 embedded graphics card. Also having very (i mean VERY) slow scrolling in some webpages (such as apple website, or danielestulin.com website). I tested the following "Hardware Acceleration Stress Test" with Epiphany, Iceweasel and Firefox, and the best rate I get is only 3 fps...[URL].. I tested the Chess game included with default Squeeze install, running in 3d mode, and definetely there is no acceleration at all...

For some reason Firefox loads pages really slow on my 11.3 install. Chrome everything loads fast. I am running the latest of firefox.I have done the usual tweaks to the about:config that I found on the internet. Is there a reason for this and can I fix it?
it's the installation media or the ISO is broken because i have reburned / redownloaded the fedora14 multiple times with the same result. I even tried burning the disc on a different computer just to make sure the burner is still working. This is the error i am getting when the "Starting installation Process" dialog displayed.
"The file upstart-sysvint.0.65.9.fc14.i686.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source" I remember fedora 13 and below i have to use nousb command or something similar to get fedora installed properly but not for fedora 14. It just pops up with the message above.
