I've run the command "sudo apt-get update" from terminal, showing no update to do.Then I've run the update manager (System-Administration-Update Manager) and it has shown an update (adobe flash).I thought that "apt-get update" command and update manager were the same... Why do I have different results ? Is something missing in my "sources.list" file ?
After install of FC13, my command prompt console and tty virtual consoles are a small box in the upper left corner of the screen. It contains tiny 80 characters by 25 rows. I want to fill the screen the old way. I assume the problem is high value screen resolution set automatically to match my display; with fonts based on the smaller pixels. This is NOT X-Windows. I can set that resolution but it has no effect on tty consoles.
It is NOT grub, which I can set with kernel parameter vga=0 to do exactly what I want. Messages from grub are big letters but change to tiny ones at init ("press 'I' for interactive startup" and the beginning of the boot log). This is not an issue with the same display using FC10 and no vga= parameter. Is there a reason that the kernel parameter failed after grub? Can I specify console resolution?
I finally got my system to boot to a console prompt. This is a fresh installation of fc10 that I have struggled to get working with my old Adaptec 2940 scsi hardware. I am a little fuzzy on the whole gtk, gdm, gnome thing. So how do I go from this console prompt to configuring the new installation with desktop?So let's say I am logged on as root on the console.
I made a live USB memory stick / pendrive with Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 using my desktop computer. I want to install / update my netbook that has no network function yet. I booted the desktop with the pendrive & ran update manager. I want to update the kernel so I will have the driver that will operate my netbook ethernet.Acer AOD260 has Ethernet Controller: AR8151 v1.1 Fast Ethernet, Atheros Communications & Network Controller: Broadcom 4727 (rev 01)and will not work from the current release of 10.04 (too new) but there are supposed to be drivers in the newer kernels.
Running Update Manager I get a box labeled "Debconf on ubuntu" & says "Configuring grub-pc". There is an entry box that says "linux command line:" & is empty. When I press the help button I get the message "The following Linux command line was extracted from /etc/default/grub of the 'kopt' parameter in GRUB Legacy's menu.lst. Please verify that is correct, and modify it if necessary.The installer is hanging, Preconfiguring packages ..., probably waiting for a response, but I have no idea what to do.
I recently updated, and now when I boot it only goes as far as grub command line. There is no grub menu. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with only Ubuntu installed -- no dual boot, no weird partition schemes. Originally installed Ubuntu 09.04 on this computer, upgraded a couple times and it currently has (had) 10.04.1 LTS running. The update should have upgraded from kernel 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. I can boot with a live CD and mount the hard drive. The drive seems fine, so it appears to be simply a grub config issue. I have to boot with live cd to get online to check for potential solutions. So I'm taking some notes on how to use grub.
I installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 on my Eee PC 901 (the one that has 2 SSD's). It all went fine, and I ran the update manager straight after install and config. It installed the updates (all 198 of them!) without error. I was prompted to restart, so I did. I got the error "udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured". I found out that this error is well documented, and I followed the guide at [url](apparently it affects all variants, not just UNE).
It went O.K., until I tried the command "sudo chroot /media/newroot". I got the error that "cannot run command '/bind/bash': no such file or directory". What should I do?
I cannot boot into and earlier kernel (problem/current one is 2.6.35-23-generic) I can only fix it via live USB stick.
I'm running RHEL 5.3 on one box at work; after the initial installation, the console font was fine (although it was visible in only one of two monitors: dual-head was configured automatically).After the first yum upgrade (which brought in dozens of packages), the console font became almost unusable. At first I can log in (say, on TTY1), but after the next few keystrokes every blank part of the display is changed to a capital G with a caret. Also, stdout (in some cases) is in an unreadable (for me, cyrillic maybe?) font. (And now the same - corrupted - display is visible in both monitors) I can't find the command to choose another console font. Looked in the "system-config*" type scripts to no avail
I'm in normal mode then I press "ayiw to yank a word into register a, gvim shows the "ayi as I type it near the bottom right corner. Is it possible to get this real-time display in console vim, if so how?
when I use e. g. cat file.txt | grep --color=tty "pattern" I get the pattern I search highlighted. When I want some more context around each hit, grep has the -A, -B and -C parameters. However, I want to display the whole file (or whatever command output) and highlight a certain pattern. Does such a highlight command or tool exist?
It used to be with (old) grub you could hit a function key and add a runlevel option to boot a console, but I don't know how to do this here, wanting not to edit the grub config file, as seems the only apparent option: I'm trying to boot into SimplyMepis where there is no rescue menu option, so need the prompt?
But in this way the command console will keep hang. Now I want to write a script which calls u this command and return back to the command console. Here is what I wrote but it doesn't return back to the command console:
#!/bin/sh MSGBP_HOME="/opt/jboss/MSGBP" case "$1" in start)
Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable. On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?
P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)
I've configured my debian lenny to load first the command line, then if i want I load the X server, but doing this to that way I don't have the suspend/hibernate functions from the gnome menu, so, my question is:
what is the command to suspend / hibernate my system at any moment I decide?
I am trying to get my standard PS/2 Wheel mouse working on the Console command line, and seem to be having major problems getting it to work.
For the record, I am NOT talking about X, Xterm's or any Graphical Interface, my mouse wheel works fine in these environments.
I am purely concerned with getting the mouse wheel to work on the Console.
After many hours of reading forum posts about getting the wheel to work on the Console, this is what I have tried to date:
1. I have downloaded and installed every version of gpm I could find in the hope that one would utilise the wheel. (No Success).
2. I compiled and installed the latest version of gpm stable (1.20.6) to see if the wheel would work with it. (No Success).
3. I have tried setting up gpm-1.20.6 as a repeater to X, using every string I could find (msc, ms3, pnp .. etc), as well as every /dev entry in xorg.conf /dev/mouse, /dev/input/mice/, dev/gpmdata/, /dev/psaux ... etc). (No Success).
4. Created directories and configured a gpm.conf to both /etc/ and /etc/conf.d/ in the hope that gpm was looking for them there (read that in one forum or another). (No Success).
5. I then tried to find mouse wheel patches for gpm, and then downloaded the relevant version source gpm.***.tar.gz to go with these patches. Nearly every single one of the patches failed to apply (using patch -p1 >), except for one version I tried that did apply ... but then failed to make (stating that the source had a different signedness or some such thing) ??? (No Success).
6. I looked into IMwheel, but that seemed to be a purely X program that was a lazy way of writing ZAxisMapping in xorg.conf. (No Success).
So now I am stumped ... Does anyone know if if is possible to get:
a). A Wheel Mouse Patch for a recent version of gpm (1.20.6) that will actually apply, and then make?
b). A prepackaged recent version of gpm-1.20.6.tgz that has been patched to enable the wheel that I can use?
c). Any other information that may enable the mouse wheel to start working on the console.
Bash's command history is great, especially it is useful when adding the history -a command to the COMMAND_PROMPT.However, I'm wondering if there is a way to log the commands to a file as soon as the Return key is pressed, e.g. before starting the command and not on completion of the command (using the COMMAND_PROMPT option would save the command once the prompt is there again).
I read about auditing programs like snoopy and session recorder like script but I thought they're already too complex for the simple question I have. I guess that deactivating that script logs all the output of the command would lead already in the right direction but isn't there a quicker way to solve that probelm?
I'm using linux suse 9.3. Recently i try to run execution files but it shows an error try running with the option "-console" or "-silent" When I tried with the -console option, I got the error - The wizard cannot continue because of the following error: Invalid command line option: console is not supported (1001) (403)
I have a Asus EEE PC 1005P which I installed a Command-line system on using the Alternate Installer CD of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. Altough I think this is a general linux and grub2 question. I do not have (or want) the X Window System installed. I want to change my console screen resolution (not inside X) to 1024x600. But it isn't reported when I use vbeinfo inside grub:
grub> vbeinfo VBE info: version: 3.0 OEM software rev: 1.0 total memory: 8128 KiB List of compatible video modes: Legend: P=Packed pixel, D=Direct color, mask/pos=R/G/B/reserved 0x112: 640 x 480 x 32 Direct, mask: 8/8/8/8 pos: 16/8/0/24
Does it mean I have the driver? how to set it to 1024 x 600 in grub2?
