But idea is that this PC will work without operator so driver must be loaded automatically. As i realized the solution is to make script but when i try google it shows me how and where to put this script but not how to make it. Also i've tried to put tmk1553b.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/misc but it doesn't work.
I'd like openSUSE to automatically load a kernel module (e.g. libsas) at boot time even no device requires it. In Ubuntu, you would add the module name to the file /etc/modules. Is this the correct place for openSUSE as well?
I'm making a Home Theatre OS, and I would like my XFCE ubuntu desktop to load up automatically without the use of GDM. This is because once remastered, the GDM cannot automatically log in until it's been set up to again. And the fact I removed all the GNOME icons which took up 50MB of space, so now the GDM interface is all glitchy xD
It basically involves removing GDM, logging in (the login and password are both 'media'), then having an automatic login command to run 'startx'. I've removed GDM on my test environment, and so far managed get in manually by logging in and typing startx. (On that note, do I even need a username and password? Can't I just use the password only for su?)
I have installed Damn Small Linux on an old laptop.very boot reports that the SSH has loaded as I have configured it to do so but does not load startx as instructed in .bash_profile.After bootup, the following is reported by the system.-bash: /home/dsl/.bash_profile: line 12: syntax error: unexpected end of fileThis is the content of the .bash_profile
i have a RAMdisk set up on my desktop with a hidden folder of stuff in it; but i want to know is it possible for me to set ubuntu to copy the files to another directory on shutdown, and copy back again on startup?
First, let me start off by saying that for the past 5-6 months I've been using Linux stand-alone without Windows at all. Recently though, I got netflix and found that there is no support for Linux distros. So, begrudgingly, I installed a small Windows Partition on my computer. So here's the problem: I can't boot back into Ubuntu. Whenever I turn on my computer, it automatically boots up into Windows 7. I know my Ubuntu partition is still there, because when I boot from my live disc I can see it. Is there a way I can fix this using Windows and/or a live disc?
I am trying to setup a ventrilo server. I want it to load the server automatically on system boot so it is running at all times. I have downloaded the server files and can manually start it, but I do not know where/how to make it start automatically.
Using tips provided in the "Sticky" posts, I have identified my wireless device -- BCM4322 -- and installed the necessary firmware and drivers. The device appears in Network Manager until system reboot, at which time the "ssd" driver module is loaded instead. After each boot I must execute the following commands to remove ssd and load the Broadcom driver:
rmmod ssb modprobe lib80211 modprobe wl
The Broadcom README file provides directions to load the correct module automatically, but the commands appear to be incompatible with openSUSE 11.4. I'm happy to provide additional detail if needed
Above adapter can be installed on v10.2 and 11.3 using ndiswrapper:-
1. Copy the 3 driver files from Windows:- like netwpn111.inf, WPN111.sys & ar5523.bin. (Be carfeul about the exact names, because they have changed over time).
2. sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn111.inf
3. sudo ndiswrapper -m
4. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (the adapter should light up at this point and networks will be detected shortly after - see network manager). (Be careful of paths here - e.g. I had to use /sbin/modprobe - so 'whereis' may be necessary to find these commands).
2nd When I reboot, I need to run the modprobe command again. How do I make the module load automatically on boot? Also (and this is minor), can I bypass the KWallet, keyring thing? it seems silly to enter a password for the keyring and then click another password dialog, when I can just as easily enter the password for the network itself.
recently i was trying to mount my partition automatically at start up ...so i gone through some tutorials on the net nd made some changes in /etc/fstab file (i made a back up before making any changes). when i was changing permissions of folder in which i tried to mount my all partitions i got my system screwed up.then it was showing following error at start up and GUI was not turning up. "could not update ICEauthority file " also my sudo was not working so first i restored original fstab file through recovery console then i googled out about above errors. I found some solution now my system is working but showing strange behaviour like:
> ubuntu is not detecting any of my hdd partition
> disk utility is not working (showing no error)
>fdisk -l shows nothing
> no new software is getting installed via ubuntu software center (shows no error when clicking on install but nothing turns up)
>i cannot restart or shutdown my system from GNOME it only logs off my session (although through terminal its working)
>no media player showing sound controls enabled
>gnome not showing ethernet or sound volume icon in upper panel (although net is working)
>users and groups from system->administration menu is not working (error:cannot load configuration)
i think most of the administrative tasks are not working.........i googled out but found nothing satisfactory..i dont want to reinstall it, coz i m not very experienced with linux n it took about a whole month to customize my ubuntu 9.10 on my college internet...
So my girlfriend came back from a holiday and it results that she somehow ( dont ask me how) wiped out vista from her hd pavillion laptop. There`s nothing there, the pc doesn't have a guarantee anymore so I thought, what the heck, I could install an ubuntu 10.4 there. It's a nice machine so it should run nicely.
I made her try ubuntu on my laptop and she likes it so she gave me a green light to do it. So how should I go about it? boot the live cd and when I get to the partition part just tell the installer to overwrite the whole c drive and make the partition automatically? I'm kind of a noob so I wouldnt want to mess things up more than what they are.
I've recently bought a new laptop with a Kingston 128gb SSD, which came preloaded with Windows 7. I'm looking to wipe it completely (Not quite sure how to do this, although that's not the main question of this thread) and install Ubuntu on it.
After some researching yesterday, I've learned that for an SSD to work at it's maximum potential you want to have the partition start after one complete block. (Or at least that's how I understood it)
Does Ubuntu automatically configure its partitions to do this upon install?
I had Fedora 7 and Windows Vista dual booting on my computer. I just installed Fedora 10. When the live CD asked me where to install it, I chose "Remove all Linux Partitions and create default layout" The installation went perfectly, but now when reboot my computer, it boots directly into Fedora; GRUB does not load to ask me which OS I want to load. I know I did not overwrite Vista because I can still view my Vista files through Fedora. Here is my grub.conf file:
What do I need to do to make GRUB load again upon booting?
I have found that APACHE or 'httpd' is installed in my machine. But the problem is I can start or stop the httpd but whenever I load the url http://localhost in Mozilla it shows a page load error.I have done this ,

I had to re-install Windows XP because the install was running slow.So, I created another partition using GParted for my personal data and moved my files there and re-installed Windows XP.Now, the Windows partition won't mount automatically.NTFS Configuration Tool shows 0.0GB. So, I have to open up a Terminal window, and issue sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Windows and everything is fine.
I had problems with my old Ubuntu version,so I decided to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10. As I wanted to keep my old files I didn't choose the erase the hard disk and install option so the installation system created automatically another partition.
Now that I've installed it I want to delete my old Ubuntu version AND keep my old files, or at least the most important ones (videogames saved games, openoffice documents, music and video). BUT there's one big problem, I can't start the old partition, if I try to run it it runs OK except that I don't see anything in the screen (yes, I listen to the Ubuntu start sound and so, but can't see anything). It happend before, that's why I changed it.
I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.
(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.
I'm a newbie despite using Ubuntu most of the time for nearly 3 years. There are some files which are created automatically in one of my ntfs partition. The files are khq, khp, kht, an autorun inf file and others. They seem to have been created while I was using ubuntu and even though I delete them,they appear again later. I have googled and have found few information that the files are malware. I will like to know if there is a known issue and solution. This is the first time i'm posting a thread.I hope i have post it at the right place and if not,
I am new to Linux and wow, it did not take me long to run into a huge snag. I am running Suse Linux Enterprise 10 on a laptop and by some strange reason the computer froze from overheating and I was forced to shutdown improperly. Once I restarted it booted right to the command prompt when it usually instead boots to the default user. I managed to get gnome running using the "startx gnome" command. But when gnome loads, none of my normal extentions load like my wireless driver, the sound driver, etc. how to restore gnome to automatically load the default user on start up or fix any other damage I might have done? lol
I found a way some times ago to mount a truecrypt volume when opening the session by insertion of the login password in the mounting script instead of putting it in clear in the script. I don't remember to command to read/transfer the password.
I have Win7. I partitioned my C: and made a empty F:(97gb). I want to install 11.2 on F:.
1) At Sys Ananysis I get; The partitioning on disk /dev/sda is not readable by partitioning tool parted... You can use the partitions on disk /dev/sda/ as they are. You can format and asign mount points on them. But you can not add, edit, resize, or removefrom that disk with this tool. I click OK 2) New Installation, Use Auto Config 3) Time Zone 4) KDE (same results with Gnome) 5) Partition Based. I go to Create Partition Setup. 6) In CPS I get
I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10. I now have grub 1.98 and my problem is that when i select windows xp from grub it just goes to a black screen with a white flashing line. If i boot ubuntu it does the same thing for about five seconds then ubuntu loads right up. I hit e on windows xp in grub and this is what came up.
my data resides in a partition sda2 - in a logical volume lv_root.unless I'm wrong lv_root contains the information on how to load the partition.so superficially it seems the partition must be loaded bofore we get the info on how to load it.
