General :: ATI Driver (Unable To Resolve Execstack) Ubuntu
Feb 12, 2010
The proprietary drivers that came with my ubuntu 9.04 installation are not doing their job. My cpu is managing my graphics (compiz-fusion, and a 3d obj running in the background) and I alway have a core of my phenom processor close to 100. I have an ATI 4870 gpu with 2gb internal ram on the card. Also, recordmydesktop, electric sheep, and any other simple graphics all lag. 3d games on the other hand have no problem. I decided I would try the driver I downloaded from AMD. I removed the proprietary driver, ran...
sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/jaunty
and I get
Created directory fglrx-install.lPNHYh
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.69 .....
/bin/sh: execstack: not found
make: *** [binary-install/xorg-driver-fglrx] Error 127
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.lPNHYh
How to make the proprietary driver work better I'm all for that to.
There seems to be some problem in my dns server. The configuration is perfectly ok.But what happens sometimes is, it couldn't resolve some domains sometimes.After restarting the named,it again resolves the domain. whats happening on my dns server
I am unable to get any sound from my speakers I know they work because I have windows 7 on the second hard drive and they work, however, not using Ubuntu 10.10. I looked at the propriatory drives and it isn't there my sound card is a Realtek High Definition Stereo ALC260 can anyone Help. Please keep it simple as I am a newbie to Linux and I find it confusing at times.
actually i am new for this forum and for Linux also. i am using redhat enterprise Linux 5 its not licensed. i am having so much dependency issues is there any way by using which i can resolve dependencies. and i am already made repository. but till i am facing the same issue for any rpm.
I just upgraded from 11 to 12 and then installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers from RPMFusion. Initially glxinfo wouldn't work because SELinux was stopping it from using an executable stack. Since the Nvidia drivers are proprietary and a fix may not be provided, I allowed this access to glxinfo with chcon -t execmem_exec_t '/usr/bin/glxinfo'
However it looks like every program using glx-utils also needs these permissions - so far I allowed Xorg, compiz and the Firefox video plugin to execstack. Can anyone suggest a fix for this - preferably one that avoids execstack for all those apps since its a security risk. If not how do I create an SELinux policy to automatically grant apps execstack while they use glxinfo or other nVidia libraries but not at other times.
I have proftpd set up on my linux home server. As I have a dynamic IP at home, I am using DynDns.org to provide a hostname for me. I have told proftpd to use this address as the MasqueradeAddress, to allow passive FTP connections through my NAT router.
However, whenever I boot my server, proftpd fails to start saying it cannot resolve this address. I assume this is due to the boot order, as something network or DNS related hasn't started up by then and it can't find the address. How should I deal with this problem? Can I get proftpd to do its checking for the address later on? Or can I change the startup order so that proftpd is started as the final item in the boot sequence?
I made the mistake of trying to install an nvidia graphics driver from the download.nvidia.com/opensuse11.2 repository. My card is a PCI quadro nvs 295 so looks like it should be supported. The installation and update of the kernel seemed to be successful, but for some reason sax2 doesn't seem to recognise the nvidia card, even when I run "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and I'm stuck with the VESA framebuffer graphics default in /etc/X11/xorg.conf code...
I've found tons of threads on this kind of thing but I only seem to be making things worse trying to fix it. If anyone can give me a hint and fix my pathetic-looking desktop I'd be very grateful!!! At the moment nothing that uses opengl will work either
I just installed the TV-Fox add-on for Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11200), but it doesn't seem to work. When I choose a Channel all it does is load for ages, saying 'waiting for video'. Are there any additional packages that need to be installed for this to work, or is it just not working in general?
I installed the Nvidia driver for the on board GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a the "Debian way", according to this link Debian Nvidia Howto. The problem is that the only available screen resolutions are 640x480 & 320x240 and I need something more like 1024x768. The driver is installed correctly, or at least is properly recognized, as in Nvidia Xserver settings, GPU0 appears as GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a.
..only causes gdm not to start.On my Ubuntu partition, I have working the proprietary Nvidia driver (file: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.36.run), and have had no problems from it at all. I was going to install this same driver onto Debian when I read several pages advising to go the "Debian way".
For the past week, I haven't been able to install anything using GDebi. Every time I do, it says that only one software managment tool may be open at once. It always says this, despite it being the only one open. What's wrong?
My problem is setting the hostname. I cloned the machine, then normally on the clone, I would change the /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts file.
However, when I do this, upon restart, I get the message, "init hostname main process (some process number) terminated with status 1"Then, when the machine finally boots, the hostname is set to (none). Literally has braces like: user@(none):
I've tried: sudo hostname machine_name but it says can't resolve hostname (none).
I've Google'd around a lot but can't get it. It may have something to do with 10.04? I have been using 9.04, 9.10 with no problems.
eric@(none):~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface code....
When using the HyperWorks FEA software HyperView with Ubuntu Lucid the following error is displayed,ChoosePixelFormat Failed. Cannot find a suitable pixel format.Also in the terminal this error appears,Unable to resolve function glXQueryExtension is displayed.This issue can be fixed by doing the following for nvidia cards, sudo ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
or for ATI cards,sudo ln -s /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
Note you must install the Nvidia or ATI proprietary drivers for opengl graphics support to be able to use HyperWorks.
In Ubuntu 10.10 am trying to install Aptitude and have been through installing and un-installing but keep getting the same msg Failed to execute child process "su-to-root" (No such file or directory) how to resolve this issue.
I am unable to print from Wine applications (including Notepad) because Wine thinks I have no printers installed. I have a network printer and print-to-file both working fine in normal KDE applications. I did some looking around and found the following:http://www.witch.westfalen.de/Wine-H...intconfig.html This is very old, and probably very out of date. I also had trouble following the examples. In any case I don't have anything called winerc or wine.conf. I just have a .wine directory. Supposedly I should have registry keys for printers in Wine, so I looked where those are supposed to be. I have two keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetContro lPrintPrinters: (Default) and DefaultSpoolDirectory. Perhaps if I added the right key here I could get Wine to notice CUPS? I wouldn't begin to know what to put though. http://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-g...s-to-configure claims that Wine should "just work" with CUPS. So much for that. It also says that if it doesn't work with CUPS it falls back to look in /etc/printcap. I have one of those, but it doesn't contain anything except the default comment telling me not to edit the file. Maybe if there's a way to regenerate /etc/printcap to contain the printers that show up in KDE, Wine would notice. Again, I have no clue how to do that. I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 x64, and I'm using Wine 1.2, not Wine 1.0. All my packages are completely up to date.
I'm able to connect to my company's VPN network using GNOME NetworkManager but when I try to login to the remote system using SSH it is not able to resolve the DNS name, It works fine if I use IP instead of the FQDN.
i searched the internet on how to resolve IP to hostname in my internal network. However, i could not find any solution to it. Any gurus around have any knowledge on this? i have tried whois, dig and nslookup however it doesnt give me anything.
I got my server set up with 10.04, and with everything installed: DHCP, SSH, Samba, VBox, etc.
DHCP, SSH work fine, but I am having problems where I cannot ping the hostname of the machine.
It worked for a few minutes after I got everything installed and now it's not letting me connect via hostname. I can connect fine if I use the IP address. I cannot ping the machine by hostname unless I add it's IP address to the hosts file.
I'm running 10.10LTS at present, I upgraded via the Upgrade Manager last night, Firefox 3.4 and D-bus stuff if I remember correctly. The system then gave the "restart now or later" buttons and I hit the "now" one. My system, an AMD 3800+ dual core job in an MSI mobo then shut down and, er... died. hitting the momentory action power switch gives an ocasional short noise but I have no power/fans or anything. It's a 480 Watt PSU with green leds and stuff I don't really need but the price was good, so I'm not convinced that it's dead... yet.
Is it possible for an upgrade to stuff the power-up circuitry? Maybe power management?
My next step is to swap the PSU to eliminate this as the "faulty" item. It leaves the Mobo, screwed CMOS and possibly the switch cabling/connector but it's all a bit suspicious. I'm basicially a hardware guy so that's the path I'm following. Unless the upgrade's written to somewhere it shouldn't?
I haven't had time to investigate further as I was dragged away shouting and screaming to a prior engagement by "she who must be obeyed".
Every once in a while I get this error when I plug in my external hard drive. I'm a bit worried I might suffer some kind of data loss. I'm trying to get some more information about this. I have been using this hard drive with Windows 7 previously so it is most likely NTFS I think.
