In FC 15 x64, I can no longer issue "shutdown -rF now". I get tagged on the "-F" option."-F" seems to have disappeared from the man page as well. The "-F" option was to force a "fsck" on my next boot.What happened to the "-F" option? Has fsck disappeared when we went from ext3 to ext4?
I'd like to know, what happened to this tool? Till F10 this tool was responsible for automounting Usb drives/Cdrom drives that were connected before I logged into the System via gdm. Since F11, this feature seems to be gone. I recently noticed that my external usb disk stopped to "automagically" appear on the desktop after login. Now I have to powercycle the disk (switch off, switch on) to have it appear on the desktop again. Is there an alternative tool to gnome-volume-properties, or do I really have to play around with hal to get this back? Doesn't really makes to me any sense to remove this feature.
Recently I installed vncserver (tigervnc) on my desktop. Ever since my computer refuses to shutdown normally. At shutdown the following message pops up: Quote: System policy prevents stopping the system when other users are logged in Then I have to enter the root password to shutdown. If I stop vncserver before, the computer shuts down normally.
I moved some video files to a fedora samba server and when I opened one tonight my screen went black and my hard disk went nuts. I saw something about caught unattended installation right before my system rebooted.
I found this under auth.log Aug 29 02:59:39 polkitd(authority=local): Registered Authentication Agent for session /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Session2 (system bus name :1.30 [/$
I have installed a cluster computer with 10 nodes . The manufacturer is HP . All nodes and the master node have redhat enterprise linux installed in them . When I shutdown the nodes from the master terminal using "shutdown -h now" they get shutdown . But they dont get completely turned off . This issue bothers me when the power supply is given , all nodes boot up simultaneously generating a huge heat .
Thing to note : When we shutdown our PC they get completely turned off . When the power supply is given , a press on the Power On button is required to boot the system. But , why does it not happpen in the case of cluster? Is there any other way of completely turning off the nodes from the master terminal ?
For some reason, a while a go my flash player (Adobe, ubuntu software center install) doesn't seem to like ...... Whenever I try to watch video's on ..... I get the error that Shockwave flash player has crashed. This also occurs when I try to maximize videos on hulu. It crashes in both chrome and firefox, and the funny thing is I can watch ..... videos that are embedded in other sites, just not on ......com. Does anybody know what might have happened?
I've read a few threads, but I'm not sure that I have found the answer. I have a Dell E4310 laptop (company issued). It comes with the Intel HD Grpahics chipset. I've read people giving it great reviews so I am hopeful.I am running Natty. My first mystery was "what happened to the enhanced desktop effects", but I found a post saying they were removed in 11.04 -- apparently they just work if your video supports it. I've installed all the compiz packages including the enhancements. I am able to go into the Compiz Settings Manager and see all the modules. I am able to turn them on and off and change the settings, but anytime I try to use any of the keyboard shortcuts nothing happens.
I'm still relatively new to the world of Linux. Can someone tell me how I figure out whether or not my graphics card can support Compiz in 11.04?
I downloaded the live CD (KDE version) and moved it in a usb flash memory (using ImageWriter). When i restarted, the main menu was shown and i selected the first item (Start live cd. After a few seconds, a black screen was shown and then nothing happened.
Ubuntu 10.10. All things have been working well and as expected until tonight. I was updating some flac files using easyTAG (AAC), adding pictures and changing things a little, then dropping them into a Sansa Fuze+. All things I've done with this setup before and with no problems. I close easyTAG and try to open: Places/ Pictures. Instead of the normal brouser up pops easytag at the pictures directory.
I test all other Places. For each Place selected easyTAG opens instead of the usual brouser. I go to synaptic and remove easyTAG and then restart the system. All is now normal again (except that easyTAG is missing). I reload easyTAG and once again it has put itself as the preferred tool to view directories. How do I restore things to normal and what have I done?
I am running fedora vm under XP host and using NAT connection to the Internet. It usually works fine, but some time the connection is just lost. I went menu System->Admin->Network and see the interface eth0, but I cannot activate or deactivate. The status is inactive. (when the connect works, the status is active). so I try "ifdown eth0" and "ifup eth0" command, and got
"Error: Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetowrkManger
The menu System->Admin->Network device control show no interface.
I am running Natty Alpha 3. I used Update Manager to install something (not sure what it was), then I restarted, but instead of listing all the kernels, it gave me a command line. I don't know what happened and how to use it.
After a terrible problem I had with x-server, I decided to opt for a clean install. So, naturally I poped in the 10.10 LiveCD (from Canonical), deleted the Ubuntu Partiton (ext4) and swap, and entered the installer. I have a 40gb Vista partition, 90gb media partition, and 20gb unallocated free space. Once I get to allocate drive space in the installation, I get three options - Install alongside other operating systems, erase and use the entire disk, or specify partitions manually. If I click install alongside other operation systems, it tries to take space away from my media partition to install ubuntu. I'm not too advanced with Ubuntu, so I don't think I'm going to specify my own. I don't know how much to give swap etc, etc, etc.What ever happened to use the largest amount of continuous free space? I have 20gb free I would love ubuntu to use.
for instance, it said that "docky needs proper composition to work properly" when it was working properly before. after having too many flash applications open, after clicking on a link to a videos video, everything crashed, and it said that *for the 20th time now in a week* that kwin has crashed. then i tried to log out and log back in since that normally fixed everything, but i couldn't log out, instead i had to killall xorg but all that showed next was a black screen instead of what it should have shown, the login screen. i had reboot from the terminal and the login screen was normal, but when i booted in to kde, everything that needed opengl and composition crashed. docky doesn't have a black box around it, but it won't intellihide like it should *and i tried to set it back to that setting but it didn't give me the option to*
Now i will try to explain my problem.I just installed fresh 11.04 openSuSe 64bit.After doing all the configuration I rebooted and tried to login.Nothing happened.Googled some things, tried ctrl alt f1 and login as root, also tried to login as root, even changed my root password to be sure.Still, nothing happens, except for the thing that everytime I try to login as root it says authentication failed, but if i type my password bad it says bad password.
when my pc boots and shuts down my monitor goes into 'input out of range' mode for a bit between the gui and the text only phases of boot/shutdown.is there a way to fix this? or where to start troubleshooting?also, when it shuts down it hangs after coming back to the text only part
However when i logged into it, i noticed that the movements with the curser was extremely slow and happened with a delay, but this only happens when i have an window open, its fine when its just the desktop Same thing happened with Gnome-Shell i think it must be mutter because its fine with normal Ubuntu Is there any solution to this at all?
Ubuntu will randomly pop up the shutdown menu and then shutdown.It seems to happen when im in firefox and typing and it has been difficult to replicate. I dont think it is a temp issue since watch sensors shows temmp of 40-50C. Someimtes it happens every minute someimtes i can go 10min without it happening.
