Fedora :: Install Anything; The Package Manager Is Having Trouble Contacting The Source?

May 25, 2011

I first installed Fedora 15 (full clean install) on a spare laptop I had sitting around and the install went flawlessly. I was able to install it and use it right out the gate. I was then able to install two of my must-have programs, xchat and libreoffice without any problems either.Then I tried the same thing on my primary desktop at work (and since I run an IT department, I already have permission to do this :-)

The problem I'm getting is trying to install anything;the package manager is having trouble contacting the source.The exact error reads: "Software source download failed. Could not contact source 'fedora', so it will be disabled."I have not made anychanges to the firewall on the machine and the machine does have a working internet connection (I am posting from the machine). Any tips or advice on ways to troubleshoot would be great. I'm by no means a linux expert, but I can get around the system fairly well

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic

Jun 25, 2010

I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)"
I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

I wanted to fix something in the Kate editor. So instead of downloading it from it's website (Get It! - Kate | Get an Edge in Editing) I wanted to download the "openSUSE Kate" source package.

CentOS 5 :: How To Install Kernel Source

Jul 15, 2011

I am a newbie to CentOS. I use CentOS5 for NetFPGA project.

I installed everyone except building driver for NetFPGA hardware. When I enter the "make" command, it gives an error like:

make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.centos.plusxen/build: No such file or directory. Stop.

In the manual, it says that:

-If you get an error message such as "make: * /lib/modules/2.6.9-42.ELsmp/build: No such file or directory. Stop.", then kernel sources are need to build the driver.

But I don't know which package I have to install. My kernel version is 2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.centos.plus-i686.

Fedora :: Viewing Source Code For Package?

Mar 3, 2011

I was a die hard Ubuntu user for the last 2 years and decided to use something more advanced or different. My question (after searching the crap out of Google) is how can I view the source code of Fedora? I have found many sites explaining this but it is not written in terms that are easy for me to understand. I haven't been programming for years and using advanced features in Linux so most of these sites are not explaining out and most are explaining how to build and add on to the kernel.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Compiling Kernel-source For NVidia Driver Install

Jun 18, 2011

In order to configure a dual display in a fresh 11.4 installation, I am attempting to install the nVidia driver according to the instructions in SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE. I have not previously compiled or configured a kernel so I largely followed the instructions from OpenSUSE 11.2 - How to compile a Kernel for Newbies.The currently installed kernel is 2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop. The graphics card is an ASUS EN9600GSO (512MB).

In Yast, I installed gcc, make, kernel-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2) and kernel-desktop-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2). Per the "hard way" instructions, I did not install kernel-source.
