Fedora :: Update Broke Library Links After Restart
Feb 5, 2010
I ran the automatic update today and it requested a restart afterwards. After the restart, I don't have any icons on my desktop, can't open windows other than the terminal. If I try to run software from the terminal, I get the following error.
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version 'GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version 'GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
I have seen "just removed the library with an issue" or recreate the links or try to reinstall. I am running fedora 12.
I ran a yum update a couple days ago, and it completed without error. Today I tried logging into Wordpress, and was unable to do so. I get a 403 error. Further investigation shows that I can no longer run any php scripts for Wordpress or Gallery. A look through yum log shows the following packages were installed:

There were no updates to apache, php, or SElinux, so I am at a loss to explain why apache is no longer able to run php scripts.
I just ran yum update, which installed about 47 packages. When I try to restart, the Linux boot loader is not being read. Apparently, the old Windows 7 boot loader that came installed on this machine is still somewhat intact on the hard drive, because when it boots, it tries to start Windows. I put in a Red Hat 5 rescue disk...but the rescue disk can't find a Linux file system on my hard drive.
Fedora 13 Dell Latitude E6500 Also...the disk is encrypted. (Not the swap or /boot)
auto generated doinst.sh files when using the -A switch.
The file will contain link removal and generation for libraries in the package eg.
When upgrading to a new version of the app, the library name might change eg.
So the links that doinst.sh creates is now incorrect. ie. the link is now dead because it points to a file that does not exist. Does one have to regenerate .src2pkg and resulting doinst.sh when using a new version of the package or is there another way to have doinst.sh regenerated without redoing .src2pkg?
Wednesday I went to work, docked and fired up my older Dell C840 laptop (running Fedora 12). It had a long list of updates that it downloaded and installed (it had been off for about a week). When the updates were finished, I noticed that my laptop had locked up. After waiting a while, I ended up doing a cold reboot. After that, I get the Fedora symbol that fills up, and then the screen goes black with a single cursor. You can type in anything and it is reflected- even control and ALT codes. If you hit CTL- ALT-F2, it goes into a terminal mode. You can do almost anything that you'd normally do in terminal mode. The video driver is the original off the install disk, and it's never been changed- it works fine right out of the box.
If I try to start up X-Windows, I get a segmentation fault error. I've tried deleting and then re-installing some of the packages that were updated (trying this via yum), no difference. I don't know what else to do. I need to get this laptop going before next week- it's my work computer and I do use it a lot. Is there any way to get in touch with the people who wrote the updates, and file a bug report? I'm using my main (home) system right now, that for a couple of reasons needs to stay on windoze XP for a few more weeks. I've been around computers for years, but not Linux.
I have a huawei e230 modem that used to work pretty good until this week. It has always been much slower on linux than windows but I am not complaining because windows keep disconnecting ever hour or so, while linux can stay connected over night without problem. The modem is still recognized but when I try to connect it suddenly disappears.
I need to get the libstdc++.so.5 library ( on a computer with Fedora 8 and don't wonder why it's so ancient,-there is a good reason for it) but I don't have Internet access from that computer, so I can't get to the online repo's.
However, I do still have the installation disk, and I'm typing this from a computer (SuSE 10) that is half a meter from the Fedora box.
I tried the "ADD/REMOVE Software" option on the menu, but it keeps on looking for the online repo and then if it doesn't get it, it fails.
Is it possible to get this library from the installation disk. How? Could I download the single package from the online repo onto the SuSE machine and then move it to the Fedora machine? How do I then tell the Fedora machine to "incorporate" it.
I have Fedora 10, and today I finally had an opportunity to let the automatic software updates run. At the end it said to restart the pc. I restarted and now it won't connect to the network. What do I do to get it connected again?
I am running Fedora 12 with KDE on an Acer Aspire One netbook.
A recent update has caused the KDE shutdown/restart/logout buttons (found for example through the Fedora -> Leave menu or by pressing the power off switch)to stop working. I am having to shutdown using shutdown -P now command.
So I have the following questions:
a) Has anyone else had this issue and knows a workaround/fix?
b) Does anyone know what package these belong to so I can try an older version?
c) Does anyone know where this package writes its logs, or if I need to install anything for it to do so so I can have a look?
d) Does anyone know the command-line interface to these commands - that may give me either a more gentle workaround than shutdown -P now, or some insight into why the command is no longer working.
I am having an issue with phpMyAdmin on my Xubuntu machine. I installed a few updates today and now my phpMyAdmin web interface site is not loading on the server. This is a local server running in my office. It appears that the page tries to load, but no output is delivered to the screen.
Taking a closer look at my updates, it looks like the following changes were made (along with some upgrades to Firefox):
When I use the 'Force Version....' command, I am given only two options the '4.8' version that I have now (the broken one) and a flat '4' version with no .7. Also, the force version didn't seem to do anything. I tried to Force a version and then mark a package for reinstall. When I did this Synaptic informed me that it was simply going to reinstall the 4.8 version.
What I would like to do is to revert to the 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.7 version of all of these files and then lock the version using Synaptic, to prevent this issue from recurring.
I am not afraid of heading to the command line either.
I started the upgrade to 10.4 from 9.10 through the update manager. It started the update to 10.4. After downloading almost 95% of the update, it gave an error message of "could not download certain components. downloaded files will not be erased" and stopped the update. I restarted the PC, and started the update manager again. But now it does not show any option of update to 10.4. how do I continue or resume the update process? I just started using ubuntu about 15 days back. So, I am relatively new to this.
I just updated to emacs23 from emacs22 (sudo apt-get install emacs2). I find that I now have a problem with org mode structured lists not appearing. A single asteriks on a line by itself no longer appears highlighted and no longer collapses and expands using the tab key.
i upgraded my kernel to the latest version that being linux-image-2.6.31-19 and now when i start my linux box i get the grub shell. this problem happend once before but i only had to run the command: sudo update-grub2 and everything turned back normal. now even though i run the command everytime i restart my linux i get the grub shell.
Firstly my gdesklets have gone, and if I try to run gdesklets then I get a blank window in the top left corner, followed by another blank window in the centre which disappears, then the first one fades to gray.
Secondly, clicking the 'running man' to exit just closes both gnome panels.
Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-25)I know 8.04 is pretty old now, and I should probably start over, but it was all fine until this latest update.
Posting from my Windows 7 system. Once again an Ubuntu kernel update has broken X. Once again I cannot get into Grub2, despite putting in the hacks to lengthen the time it listens. I don't need instructions on how to fix it from Live CD. I'm going to try Gentoo or something, anything, different. I need a Linux distro that can survive regular updates and boot to desktop reliably.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and ran the normal weekly updates last night. There were kernal updates listed but they have run alright before so I went ahead and let everything update.
On restart my Nvidia drivers would not load, so I restarted in low graphics mode. I uninstalled the Nvidia driver (with the intent of reinstalling them) but decided to restart before I reinstalled the driver (windows habit). upon restart I was told (in a very small box) that Ubuntu was running in low graphics mode.
I clicked ok and it proceeded to load, but it loaded it in regular mode and only the right half of the desktop is visible! It is like it is cut totally in half! And I can't get to the important side with Admin and Preferences. I tried boot options but that just gets me a very small colored box. There are no options when it boots just 3/4 of a box that says it is running in low graphics mode because "unable to load module "fglrx" module does not exist". I can not try and reinstall the Nvidia drivers because I can't see the part of the desktop that has Admin on it. I have used Ubuntu for several years now but have not used the terminal very often.
I did the latest update last might, 3-24-11, and I woke up,to find my system completly broken. There is some weird new startup and nothing starts, absolutly nothing. I'm typing from my phone now. I'll try some troubleshooting soon but I may just reinstall.
After updating and installing Mysql's TOP, yum broke. When trying to clean, update, or install, the following error occurs:
dingle@its:/home/dingle# yum update There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: No module named cElementTree Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly. It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.4.3 (#1, Sep 3 2009, 15:37:12) [GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-46)] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: [URL]
I tried to resolve by reinstalling the dependency, didn't work either: dingle@its:/home/dingle# rpm - [URL] Retrieving [URL] Preparing... ########################################### [100%] package python-elementtree-1.2.6-7.el4.rf.i386 (which is newer than python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.i386) is already installed
How can I rebuild YUM appropriately so it will operate correctly?
After installing the latest updates (the second round of updates since the upgrade from CentOS 5.5 to 5.6), Evolution mail barely works on my KDE desktop.After I do manage to get it running, then exit the program and log out, bonobo-activation-server and a couple of evolution process invariably continue running, and must be killed manually.The program generally does not start at all using the desktop program icons. If I make sure bonobo and all evolution processes are dead, I can generally get it started using the command line, but it complains with this error message:
[edfix@eagle ~]$ evolution --component=mail ** (evolution:6324): DEBUG: mailto URL command: evolution --component=mail %s ** (evolution:6324): DEBUG: mailto URL program: evolution libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error. (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
I tried reverting to the previous kernel (2.6.18-238.5.1.el5), but no improvement. System data is at [URL]
I have 11.1 on a computer. I updated it yesterday. Now K3B, VLC, and XDVDShrink are all broken. Possibly other programs broken as well. VLC refuses to uninstall via Yast. These are high-priority programs for this computer. Multiple people use this computer for multimedia and there is not much to entertain ourselves with in our very cold climate. In other words, it is mandatory that K3B, VLC and XDVDShrink return to operational status.
Should I just upgrade to 11.3, try to fix the broken 11.1? I prefer using KDE3, not KDE4, but I can sacrifice.
I just did install the updates as they showed up with the Update manager, and now the themes are "broken." On startup, all windows are themed with the Redmond theme. When I open the Appearance dialog, some windows' theme come back. But nautilus still uses the Redmond theme (I'm not running it as root either). The icon theme is totally not taking effect. It's using the ugly gray icons regardless of what I have chosen. This all happened right after the latest update on Karmic, and after I've reinstalled my NVidia driver which breaks after every kernel update. I think it was a kernel update because the number of lines at the grub menu seemed to have increased.
The update manager told me there were several packages to update, and I as usually said 'OK'. Then, it told me that some packages could not be installed. I ran dpkg in a terminal window, and this is what it looks like:
> sudo dpkg --configure -a Setting up openjdk-6-jre-headless (6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3) ... update-alternatives: error: alternative link /usr/bin/java is already managed by java~. dpkg: error processing openjdk-6-jre-headless (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of openjdk-6-jre: openjdk-6-jre depends on openjdk-6-jre-headless (>= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre-headless is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing openjdk-6-jre (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of icedtea-6-jre-cacao: icedtea-6-jre-cacao depends on openjdk-6-jre-headless (= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre-headless is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing icedtea-6-jre-cacao (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of icedtea6-plugin: icedtea6-plugin depends on openjdk-6-jre (= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing icedtea6-plugin (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Errors were encountered while processing: openjdk-6-jre-headless openjdk-6-jre icedtea-6-jre-cacao icedtea6-plugin
At some point in the last week, my webcam on 10.10 64bit mysteriously stopped working. The OS no longer recognises it as being there. It's an internal cam on a Clevo laptop and before this it's always worked perfectly.
Is there a way I can force the OS to recognise it? Or find out what broke it and fix it?
Writing this from a 9.10 LiveCD, so I know that my hardware is working fine.My system is running 10.10 normally. Last night, the update manager popped up, as it frequently does, and said I had some packages that could be updated. So I let it update after which it said I needed to reboot. So I did, and now it doesn't recognize my network connection, and even the blinky lights on the port itself stay dark. don't know a lot about networking or stuff under the hood, but I can work a console and/or text editor if someone can tell me where to look and what to type.My hardware is (from "lspci | grep -i eth"):02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)The packages that have a modified date of last night are:
After a recient update to the freenx libraries KDE on Kubuntu 10.04 stopped working but other desktops like gnome kept running. The problem wasn't in the normal log files, but it was found in the .xsession-errors file in the user directory on the server. After the update NX is trying to start kde with the /usr/bin/startkde4 command which doesn't exist. Instead make a link from /usr/bin/startkde to the non existent /usr/bin/startkde4 and it will work again. To do this use the command:
I installed the latest security update for squeeze. It entailed an update of the kernel. Now when it boots, it give continuous kernel error messages about "can't enumerate usb .... " I have a custom kernel compiled from source (not sure about the patch level) from the same kernel 2.6.32. It seems to work OK. Should I worry about the security of this custom kernel or should I try to recompile it? I don't really know how to do any patching of the kernel source.
