Fedora :: KPackageKit - Waiting For Service To Start?

Aug 6, 2010

I have a couple of problems - and am new to Fedora which, up until about three days ago, was flawless.Am using KDE on F13. (Gnome & LXDE are also installed.)First problem is easy to solve, I think. How do I prevent "inactive" windows from fading out? It's an incredibly inconvenient feature and utterly defeats the whole purpose of the "Always on Top" option! I can't seem to find the option anywhere?On to KPackageKit. It has been trying to update KDE for the last three days but always gets hung up with the message: "Waiting for Service to Start."I notice that this problem might be listed as a Bug? - but not entirely sure.Is there a straightforward solution to this or is it, in fact, a bug?It also wants me to repeatedly restart because a new Kernel has supposedly been installed.

Fedora :: Kpackagekit Waiting For Other Tasks

Oct 3, 2010

Whenever I try to get KPackageKit to do anything, it says "Waiting for other tasks..." and just hangs. I can cancel (when there's a cancel button, but sometimes there's not) and yum runs just fine.Any advice on how to get this working? I hate hunting for the names of packages.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From 9 To 10 - DVD Waiting For GRUB To Load

Feb 10, 2009

I've just tried to upgrade my Fedora 9 (x86_64) installation to Fedora 10 using the installation DVD. The upgrade seemed to proceed very smoothly, no errors ,nor warnings, it just seemed that it is upgrading grub (yes, I chose to upgrade grub as well) and all the packages (it took about 20 minutes). However, after the upgrade was over, it asked me to reboot my computer, so that's what I did, I took out the DVD and waited for GRUB to load.

It loaded just fine, but I was quite surprised when there was no option to boot Fedora 10 in the list. Ok, so I booted into Fedora 9 which went fine, the layout changed to the new one and some programs don't run. When I looked into /lib/modules I couldn't see any fc10 kernel installed. So the question is what happened and what should I do, so that it upgrades to fc10?

Fedora :: Bash Arrows While Waiting For A Command To Complete

Jul 31, 2010

For as long as i can remember, using arrows (and home/end) in a bash shell that has a command running would print some fancy ^[[A caracters and then return the prompt at the end of this.

Now this behavior has changed. Using the arrows while a command is running actually moves the cursor on the screen. When the command completes the prompt appears at the new cursor position which is kind of strange and messes the screen.

For testing, just enter "sleep 10" and during the wait move the cursor with the arrows and home/end.

How can i get back the original behavior?

> rpm -q bash

Fedora :: Wireless Connection Hangs On Waiting For Authentication

Mar 20, 2011

Has anyone else been having problems with their wireless network connections since the network manager updates? I have two different networks that I connect to and have in the past had no problems since figuring out what files were missing and had to be either created or corrected and copied into the correct locations. I have tried everything I know to get my secondary wireless connection working to no avail(currently connected through my neighbors unprotected network), from deleting the connection, rebooting and recreating it, editing the files and copying them back into the correct locations and nothing works.

I have even had many crashes while using network manager. Using system-network-config eliminated the crashes but still does not allow the connection to connect. It attempts to connect and just hangs on waiting for authentication after prompting for the WEP key and clicking OK. What in the heck is going on since the devs created all these updates and have once again broken the most important aspect of any usable system, the network? I'm running F14 and KDE 4.6.1.

Fedora :: Minimize / Prevent The Memory Leak Other Than Waiting For The Next Version Of Gnome 3?

May 27, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15 with Gnome 3 on a 32 bit laptop. I noticed that there seems to be a huge memory leak issue with Gnome shell. When I restart it, it is around 20 MB. But it keeps rising, and after around eight hours, I noticed it was around 250 MB! I found a solution online that said to simply restart the shell if the gnome-shell memory consumption becomes too large. While this is fine as a temporary solution, I am looking for a permanent one. Is there a way to minimize/prevent the memory leak other than waiting for the next version of Gnome 3?

Software :: Waiting For Other Tasks

May 26, 2010

for the past several months now, whenever the YUM-deamon goes to automatically update, it just says "waiting for other tasks" and after about 10 min it says "can't get yum lock, other program accessing yum" or something to that effect.i get the same message if i try to manually install programs using the graphical program in gNu.

is there another deamon that also could be using yum or the database for programs? i haven't had too much time to trouble shoot the past few months, so i can't give you better descriptions i'm afraid.

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Install 12 - Laptop - Getting "waiting For Hardware To Initialize Then Restarts"

Apr 30, 2010

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire AS5517-5671 laptop [URL] Every time I try to install Fedora 12 it gets to the waiting for hardware to initialize then restarts. (using the F12 DVD) Ive tried both the default installation method and the basic video drive options

Ive successfully install OpenSuSe 11.2 on the laptop with little trouble however. So any idea if there is a work around, or is my laptop not compatible with F12?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 15 - Halts At "waiting For Hardware To Initialize"

Jul 21, 2011

I m trying to install fedora 15 on a computer I've just built (which is already running windows 7).

asrock h61m/u3s3 lga 1155 intel motherboard
intel i5-2500 processor
radeon HD 6850 graphics card

After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:

[15.106386] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IQR 18
[15.106639] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
[15.139841] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810

From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.

Ubuntu :: Apt-get Hangs At Waiting For Headers

Jan 25, 2011

For two days I've been trying to update and install packages on a Lucid 64-bit system. It's a fresh install and I've never had any problems with any apt-get commands before in the two years during which I've installed Ubuntu on everything I own. It just hangs at 0% [Waiting for Headers]. I can provide more information if needed.

I suspect his may have something to do with it: (copied from terminal output)

Err [URL]

My sources.list:

# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release amd64 (20100816.1)]/ lucid main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid main restricted #Added by software-properties
# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.

Fedora :: CUPS Stuck At "waiting For Job To Complete"?

Feb 2, 2010

For some reason my new F12 install can print one document, then its seems to hang.

It never clears the print queue even when the document has printed, which I guess is why the next job never gets through. Even if I cancel the finished job, the next one won't start because the status in cups is "waiting for job to complete".

To fix it I have to kill cupsd and any print processes, reboot the printer and print server.

I guess F12 must do something to hang the print server (uses IPP) as I can't even print from a known-working F10 machine after F12 has printed.

I don't really think the below is relevant as its a F12/CUPS 1.4.2 issue I'd say (as its works fine on F10 and Ubuntu 9.04) but here you go:

Print server: Linksys WPS54G v1
Printer: Samsung ML-2510
Driver: Samsung ML-2010 Foomatic/gdi (grayscale)

Ubuntu :: Waiting Indefinitely At Grub Screen

Jul 19, 2011

I have several servers running Ubuntu Desktop. These servers are remote access only and do not have a monitor or keyboard attached normally. I'm running into problems with them occasionally getting hung up, after crashing, on the grub recovery mode screen. The only way for me to make them boot up is to hook up a keyboard and hit enter.

My /etc/default/grub file is default:
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

What do I need to change to disable the grub loader screen from coming up automatically ever, or at least to make the timeout work when it does happen?

Debian :: Waiting For Root - Cannot Mount Volume

Jun 23, 2010

Not sure how this came about but the box rebooted itself for some reason and refused to get past this stage. I went into grub and changed hde1 to hda1 but that did nothing. The disk is unreadable by another Debian box, it gives the error "Cannot mount volume". Also unreadable in Windows via programs such as ext2toifs or Linux Reader.

If I boot via the CD and bring up the recovery console I can browse to my data, seems all intact but cant mount a network share to move it off, also tried making a .tar of all my stuff and FTPd' it across but I only received a massive corrupted file. How to get my stuff of this drive or ideally make it boot?
