Fedora :: NTFS - Config Tool Will Not Open And Gives Error
Sep 10, 2009
When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authentication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system. All the ntfs-3g applications are installed as default, so I just added that enable ntfs write support tool with the package manager.
I've made a dual boot with winXP. Most things are sorted out so that i can work, except.I'm trying to enter file write permissions for my ntfs drives using NTFS-config -I followed the ubuntu community documentation and it has installed, but it won't open! (there's no gui after password prompt)
I just done a brand new install of fed12 and did all the yum updates. Apache seems to start ok and I always liked the http config tool but it won't run on Fedora 12. I downloaded and installed system-config-httpd.noarch 5:1.4.6-1.fc12 and it all went fine but when I try to start it I get the usual box asking for my root password, I type it in and press enter, the box disappears and then....nothing. If I run system-config-httpd in a terminal I get the same box asking for root passowrd but when I enter it I get a long scroll of text which ends with:
line 4: 2137 Aborted (core dumped) /usr/bin/python /usr/share/system-config-httpd/ApacheConf.py
I don't know what causes this. Is there any way to get the http config tool working?
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
When I install the FC11 by using"Install or upgrade an existing system"or"Install system with basic video driver"mode...Point 1, I can't config the network config ( IP Address ), due to theerror of network manager...Point 2, I can't enter into the text mode to do the installation steps.Remark:The machine is provide Web,DNS, and Mail Server on the NET ( Internet )
First off let me say that I love working with Ubuntu. It's a great OS to learn Linux on. Now on to my problem. I have a laptop that dual boots. Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Been working just fine. I was using NTFS-Config to auto mount the Win7 partition during startup of Ubuntu. It has been running fine. I am able to move files between the linux partition and the NTFS partition with no problem. Now I've come across a problem. I big problem. Just this week I installed VirtualBox onto Ubuntu. I started creating virtual machines. 6 in all (3 Win 2k3, 1 2k8 and 1 Win7). I was saving the virtual machines to the NTFS drive as this was by far my largest drive. I used a directory titled "virtualbox" under the c:/users/public directory. This setup was working great. Was able to get my vm's patched and up to date. Created several snapshots. Basically I was a happy camper.
Last night I booted into Windows 7. OS started fine. I was just surfing the web. After that I rebooted the system and entered Ubuntu and started Virtualbox. I tried to start a vm and it complained that the virtual harddrive was missing. I checked to make sure that the path was correct for the virtual drive and discovered that the entire virtualbox directory that I created on the NTFS partion was gone!!! Everything else was in place and intact including music and large video files that I had downloaded to the Ubuntu partion and moved the the NTFS partion.
I save these virtual machines???? Should I abandon using NTFS-Config. This is somewhat critical since I had took sometime to create this test lab and to have it disappear from simply booting into Windows 7 is crazy.
I've got a situation where I would normally use NFS, but cannot. So in it's place I need to use a samba share (even though it's linux -> linux). I need it completely open and world writeable as if I had done an rw in an NFS export. I thought I had it as when logged in as a user I can edit delete etc. however the apache user seems to be struggling with creating files.
Here's my smb.conf as it stands. Code: [global] workgroup = WGRP server string = Samba Server Version %v security = user passdb backend = tdbsam unix extensions = no
[sites] comment = Sites Directory path = /var/www/sites public = yes guest ok = no write list = siteusr writeable = yes create mask = 0777 browseable = no security mask = 0777 directory security mask = 0777 note that the drive is mapped as user siteusr
So I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 from fresh. I do dual run with Windows and i like to share the folder with Win, so I need ntfs-config tool to automount the Win-Data partition. Installed ntfs-configuration tool and wont launch, tried through console and got:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/ntfs-config", line 102, in <module> main(args, opts) File "/usr/bin/ntfs-config", line 75, in main app = NtfsConfig() File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/NtfsConfig/NtfsConfig.py", line 56, in __init__ os.mkdir(HAL_CONFIG_DIR) OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/hal/fdi/policy'
I've installed and reinstalled the Tool several times and it doesn't do anything. I get the prompt to input my password, which I know I put in correctly. It then just disappears. If I try running the tool again, I see a window pop up at the bottom of my screen for a half a second then disappear. I'm running Maverick with Win7 dual-booting and trying to use the tool to auto-mount several partitions
I've been using Knoppix "Live CD" 6.2 and partimage 0.6.7 to back up and restore my Microsoft Windows XP system volumes on various computers. However, partimage seems to be unwilling to back up one of these NTFS volumes which has bad sectors, some unreadable data. It hits that and stops. But this appears to happen at the same place when I have already used Windows to find and mark and, I assume, remove from use, the bad sectors. Hmm. I thought they'd be ignored. It appears I thought wrong.
If so, which of several other Linux-based or other partition backup tools may be suitable for the task - to ignore or tolerate bad sectors? The main goal is to be able to update the volume subsequently in a way that may be a terrible mistake, and in that case to restore the previous version. Sometime not too far in the future, I suppose I have to think about replacing the disk.
What's the best tool or method to resize an NTFS partition containing Windows XP Home but with some evidence of being installed using Windows Vista? (Possible answer: Windows 7...) I bought a Fizzbook Spin, UK version of Intel Classmate PC with touchscreen. Disk is about 55 GB; I want to resize system partition C to about 17 gigabytes and then maintain it using something like partimage on live CD/DVD/USB for complete backup of volume: 15 gigabytes roughly compresses to one DVD, 2 gigabytes for hibernation memory storage which I won't back up (and can't move off C), pagefile on the next volume (probably 4000 MB on FAT32, an affordable commitment of disk space to buy not worrying about the page file size). Plus, I will be able to store the backup of volume C on volume D.
The machine can boot Linux (Knoppix 6.2) from external DVD drive, from a USB flash memory key, and from SD[?HC] card. I don't have a separate Windows install CD or recovery partition, but there's an Intel tool to generate a recovery, um, stick. There's evidence that XP's partition was created by Vista, as follows: 1 MB unused before the system partition; an error message about "correcting errors in the uppercase file" which apparently means "Vista did something on this disk that XP thinks is wrong, but this is not serious" - and several attempts to resize the volume with GParted have left Windows unbootable, blue-screening for a split-second and then rebooting. Apparently that's a Vista experience, and it would've been really bad if I hadn't taken a backup already.
I'm pretty sure that in at least one attempt, I remembered and successfully turned OFF the default-on "Round to cylinder" option in GParted... or is that WRONG? Standard Vista/Parted/resize advice (before 2010) such as [URL] seems to be "Use GParted, then use the Windows Vista installation CD to make your ruined hard disk partition properly bootable again." Since I don't have a Vista installation CD to use or legally borrow for this computer - unless I buy Vista or Windows 7 (which I'm considering anyway, for speech recognition) - I appear to be stuck. I do have more than one other XP computer, in case I can use something from there to exorcise the Vista-ness. But I want to keep the extra software (and device drivers) supplied with this little computer.
I tried to mount a drive via ntfs-config and the following error occured:
Mounting /media/mOVIES failed because of the following error:
Failed to read last sector (146876415): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
First of all, ntfs-config does not appear in the menu in openSUSE 11.4 Gnome 2.32. When I try to start it using the run command(Alt + F2) it gives the following error in a small window: Insufficient Rights. You need administrative rights to start this application. I then try to run it as root (su -l or su) and it gives the following error:
All these packages and others are already installed in my computer.
My dad is out of town for a while, so I've been using his computer to rip my DVDs with Handbrake. He has Windows Vista installed, so I did a full installation of Fedora 13 on a thumb drive and just run everything off of that. However, when I went to delete some of the encoded videos after I had moved them to my computer, I got a system error that said 'can't delete files: I/O error.' Now, if I try to boot up Windows, his computer is stuck on a black screen checking a bunch of dlls. He'll be back in a couple of weeks, so I'd like to have it fixed by then.
I'm trying to install and configure a printer (networked Brother HL4040CN), but I'm getting an error dialog when I click on "New" in the printer configuration GUI.

Any ideas? I have installed the RPMs from Brother's web site for both LPR and CUPS-wrapper
I'm trying to install kmplayer-0.10.0c and im using Fedora 9. when i tried to install the kmplayer-0.10.0c using the command ./configure i received this error msg "The important program kde-config was not found!. Please check whether you installed KDE correctly." Kindly help how to solve this error msg.
Often after using the network tool, making changes, saving changes, closing the tool, and running a 'service network restart'; the tool will not open again unless I reboot. This is the case both via System --> Administration --> Network and system-config-network (from the command line). I am in runlevel 5, as an uprivileged user when this happens.
I am on Ubuntu Lucid (updated till date). I am using Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic Recently I am not being able to run Cheese (webcam tool). When run it is crashing. Upon starting it from prompt I noticed the following error : libv4lconvert: Error decompressing JPEG: fill_nbits error: need 2 more bits The program 'cheese' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
I checked in Skype and there the webcam is working fine. I tried with Camorama but that always gives an error "Could not connect to /dev/video0, please check connections."
