Fedora Installation :: Installing Additional Programs To A USB?

Oct 14, 2009

I have a laptop that I want to dual boot winxp and linux. I'd like to be able to run a mythtv frontend on it so that I can watch shows in my office and not lose the screen space on my regular desktop. I was thinking of three possible directions to go. I have a question to go with each though.

1.) This machine has an existing winxp install that I don't want to mess up, but is there something on a Fedora live cd that I could use to smashing that winxp install into a smaller space and repartitioning the drive? If so, I could just do an old fashion dual boot from the harddrive.

2.) I put a live install on a usb drive. If I do that, how do I install mythfrontend and make it persistant on the usb drive?

3.) I treat a usb drive like a regular hard drive and just do a normal fedora install, assuming the install sees the usb drive as a sd? device. I guess I don't have a question with this option, but I would rather avoid it since it will take a lot more space on the usb drive.

Fedora Installation :: Install Additional Packages From DVD?

Jun 17, 2010

I've installed Fedora from the Live CD (Fedora 13). The Installation Guide says that if you install from the DVD (or, as I understand it, the five or so CDs) you get the choice of installing lots more software. I've now got a copy of the CD. But how do I use it to install the extra software it contains? The Installation Guide says use the Add/Remove Software tool. But that tries to download stuff from the Internet. Nothing about installing from the DVD.

Fedora Installation :: Additional Firmware Required Killed F12?

Nov 22, 2009

While doing some basic tweaks, nautilus, panel, display etc I got a pop-up: Additional Firmware Required "to make hardware in this computer function correctly". No more detail than that. Like signing a blank check so I said "go for it". When I rebooted the display was hosed. Like the refresh rate was wrong. So off to xorg.conf to fix it. There is no xorg.conf. After four hours of searching forums and google I gave up and reinstalled (only an hour). This time I made a backup (cp -a) before letting F12 fix the non-existent problem. Tried again very carefully to be sure that what killed the display was the additional firmware. True. That kills my display. Only problem is the backup cp -a when copied back in would boot but would not let me log in!? I could boot "single" change the password, but it said that was already the password.

for me F12 is a "one-day-distro". I have multiple partitions with Ubuntu, Mandriva, SuSE, Slitaz ... My first Linux was Fedora Core 4 and I will try the next Fedora release. For now back to Ubuntu 9.04. I'm still testing 9.10. My graphics is on-board Intel. I think it's 965G chipset. This is a Dell E520N. How would I tell what not to do that firmware addition?

Fedora Installation :: Editing Partions For Additional Hard Disks?

Apr 30, 2009

I have three hard disks in my PC , hda is used for /, /home, /boot and swap. Everything seems to setup fine here I then have partitions sdb1 and sdc1. On the edit partion options for these hard drives I can set the mount point. I have never seen this before with the other distros I have used and usually have to mess around with fstab after install to mount these disks, so was pleased to see this option.

Under my previous install (Debian, which I didn't use for long) I had these drives mounted under /media/store1 and /media/store2. This is reflected in the "Edit Parition: /dev/s***" options where the "Original File System Label" is shown as store1 and store2 for each disk

Ubuntu Installation :: Editing Fstab To Add An Additional HDD?

Sep 26, 2010

I'm attempting to add an additional HDD to my system (without having to format it). I was told that I need to edit my Fstab. I'm trying to get an internal SATA drive mounted. I'm getting these two errors when I try and mount the drive DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.


DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending

my Fstab is as follows.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Debian Installation :: Reinstalling With Original CD And Additional Packages?

Jan 19, 2010

What is the simplest way to combine an original installation CD with several hundred additional packages that I have downloaded since the installation? My goal is not to waste future bandwidth downloading packages I already have downloaded. Bandwidth has costs both in time and money.

Background Recently I started experimenting in earnest with Debian Lenny in VirtualBox. I am new to Debian but not Linux based systems. I have seen enough the past several days with my experiments that I would like to migrate from my current Linux based system to Debian.

I installed the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to a virtual machine. In the past several days I have downloaded and installed several hundred packages since the initial installation. I have encountered no major hiccups along the way.

For future use and safekeeping, I copied all of the downloaded packages from /var/cache/apt/archives to a different directory. To become more comfortable with the Debian installation process, I want to repeat the installation several times using the original 5.03 KDE CD --- and all of the subsequently downloaded packages.

As I am new to Debian I am looking for advice and instructions for the simplest way to perform these reinstallations. I would like to perform them without any internet connection. If I understand correctly, I can copy the additional packages to a DVD and then use apt-cdrom to add the disk to my sources.list. Then I should be able to 1) use the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to perform the initial installation, 2) install the additional packages manually. If I understand correctly, something like dpkg -i * should work with the additional packages? Doable?

The "common sense" way is to somehow merge the original Debian 5.03 KDE CD with my additional packages to create my own personal Debian 5.03 KDE Plus DVD for my personal installation use. All I would want is to merge the downloaded packages into the original CD to create my own installation DVD. Nothing fancy or dramatic. Being new to Debian I don't pretend to understand the Debian Installer mechanism. Yet I can tell from the original CD image that I need to merge my additional packages into the pool directory.

I found the wiki how-to for simple-cdd. I started to run the app but stopped because I was unsure how much bandwidth the app is using. The simple-cdd tool needs internet access, but is simple-cdd downloading all the deb packages again? I don't want any of the installed packages to be re-downloaded when I already have them at hand. I'm not comprehending the how-to very well or the various options. I also want to perform a complete installation without an internet connection.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Load Additional Modules (Server)

Sep 17, 2010

I've been playing with some intel server board and they provide a type of fakeraid which is called Embedded Server Raid Technology 2. Since Intel officially support RHEL and SLES on their servers, they provide drivers/modules for this fake raid (which supports raid 0, 1, 5 and 10). I have installed RHEL before on these severs and redhat's installer has the ability to load additional modules (via a boot command linux dd).

While intel doesn't provide the modules for other operating systems, they provide a library where people can build their own module for their kernel. I managed to build this module called 'megasr' (for now I've built it for kernel 2.6.32-24-generic which is my testbed at the moment but I would eventually build it for box i386 and amd64 for both server and desktop versions) and load it on a system which is installed on a single drive.

We are able to load it successfully and see the raid 5 as a single volume and access it (partition, format and copy data to it) and all its functions (work in degraded mode, rebuild, etc) work fine but my main goal is to actually install such volume as my main boot volume (similar to how its possible with RHEL or SLES). Is this possible? Load additional modules during the installation that will be present after the installation is finished?

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Boot When Additional Sata Is Connected

Mar 8, 2011

1. I install Desktop 10.4 or server 10.10 on my 250GB IDE drive using guided partition structure.

2. I add SATA Drives (of varying types and sizes to test) to the system and create a raid.

3. When I restart grub won't initialize with the SATA's plugged in.

4. I have tried this in various ways, installing with the SATAs already connected, making the raid in the install process etc.

I have tried re-installing formatting the drives in windows, deleting partitions, making new ones, low level formatting. It appears to be related to an issue with GRUB re-ordering drives so it is trying to boot off the wrong drive - I would edit grub but it doesn't get that far into the boot. Just rudely flashes it''s cursor at me. Is this really so uncommon that there isn't a straight simple answer?

What makes me think it has to do with partitions and formatting is that when I first added new drives they worked on the boot. I even made the raid in Desktop mode in Server - Rebooted- Rude flashing cursor.

Debian Installation :: Network - Find The Additional Files To Install

Sep 5, 2010

I have made a Debian minimal installer on a USB drive according to this manual: [URL] I have installed a minimal version of Debian, meaning text-only, with only the kernel, shell, filesystem, and a few programs. Now I need to install the rest of it over the internet. So here are my questions:

1. Where can I find the additional files to install?

2. Where can I find a manual that tells you how to install them? This manual doesn't say anything about that.

3. Are you supposed to install the files during the installation process, or do you get them online through the minimal Debian (using wget, etc.)?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install NVidia Driver Via Additional Hardware GUI

Nov 9, 2010

I've seen may similar issues to mine, but some are different and others are identical, but have been resolved since in the repositories. I install Maverick from CD, reboot, update via update manager, reboot, install nVidia driver via additional hardware gui, reboot and I can't get into X, I get tty1 instead with a text login prompt.

dmesg tells me:
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
purging nvidia-* and deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf means that I can get back into X, but without any hardware drivers.
I have both an onboard and PCI-E nVidia graphics adapters but my PCI-E one is primary.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Wants To Install Rpm And Other Stuff?

Feb 19, 2010

Reading the list of updates in my UNR 9.10 install I was quite surprised to see a few new installs in the list:

Distribution updates


This looks wrong to me, what could cause it to push loads of dev/build tools and the redhat package manager on me? Edit: Unticking these also unticks a "google-chrome-beta" update below. Does this mean they are now dependencies of that package?

Ubuntu Installation :: Re-installing 10.04 Over Bad Upgrade Without Losing Stuff

Aug 3, 2010

I recently upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 and have some questions:

1. Will a clean install of 10.04 perform better than my upgrade?
2. Will it get rid of the message I get at boot time about IRQ #18 being disabled.
3. The boot splash image does not appear after the upgrade. Will it appear after a clean install? (It does when booting from 10.04 live CD).
4. And finally: I can see that there are some 20 or so folders including home when I do ls /

mike@mike-laptop:~$ ls /
bin dev initrd.img lost+found opt sbin sys var
boot etc initrd.img.old media proc selinux tmp vmlinuz
cdrom home lib mnt root srv usr vmlinuz.old

How may I preserve stuff I have on my upgraded system such as:- VirtualBox running a Windows XP guest, its application and data. - Wireless LAN implemented using ndisuio? wrapper Canon PIXMA IP2600 driver

I changed it back to normal, but now even the font is really small, but the font-size is set to 10 px. I can't figure out (a) what happened, and (b) how to put it back to normal. I'll attach 2 images to make it more clear about what it's actually doing...

Fedora X86/64bit :: Install Additional 32bit Openssl From Source On F10?

Mar 11, 2009

I need to run a proprietary VPN client (Aventail) that can't use the openssl libraries that are packaged with 64bit F10:The Fedora openssl package does something differently from the original openssl.org package that makes it incompatible with Aventail (see bugzilla ticket 477073) I also believe the Aventail client software requires 32-bit libraries. So, I've determined I need to install 32bit openssl directly from openssl.org, then link my Aventail client to that. Note that I don't want to replace the 64bit openssl libraries currently on my system.

Based on the Bugzilla ticket, I believe I know how to hook up Aventail before I install it simply by supplying a few specific soft links if I can make/compile/whatever the 32bit openssl.org libraries and keep them in their own isolated directory. how to get the 32bit openssl libraries installed in a little corner by themselves on my 64bit system. give a step-by-step on on the commands necessary to place a 32bit version of openssl all by itself in a directory of my choosing?
