General :: Partimage With Ubuntu Can't Quite Get To Work?

Feb 28, 2010

Been trying for a few days now to get a workable image from partimage. I've been using Physocats tutorial as my basis, however there is one item that seem odd: after the fdisk -l, a mkdir /backup is created; then the mount of hda5 where the backup will reside. To me, this seems backwards.

In any respect, what I'm trying to accomplish is to backup my main drive (sda1) to another (sdc1). After coming from Ghost and Windows, I've forgotten much of my limited command line knowledge. This mounting,unmount, fstab and mtab has me ready to go back to pen and paper!!

Ubuntu :: Running Partimage From SysRescueCD USB Stick?

Nov 18, 2010

I have a 16gb flash drive with system rescue cd installed, I boot to it and run partimage. I'm trying to image an NTFS HDD. I would like to save it to the empty space on the flash drive but I'm unable to locate it in the file manager.

It's not under /dev/sdb1 or /livemnt/boot. The entire flash drive has been partitioned to be used by sysrescueCD.

Fedora :: Errors Installing PartImage 0.6.9 On 14

Jan 28, 2011

On a previous thread, I explained how I installed Fedora 14 from the live image disk onto a HP 2140 netbook only to find I was missing the development files. Stoat helped me use the more complete install DVD from Fedora 14 to install the development tools (rather than doing a complete reinstall -- which I would do if it made this work).

Unfortunately, I'm still unable to make PartImage 0.6.9 install. When I try, configure says that the bzip2 library (libbz2) is not found or too old. Apparently, this is because it can't get it to respond to BX2_bzopen from within the library. I think because it can't find the library. Inside the config.log file it seems to indicate that from an -lbz2 not found. Now I'm guessing that there is some trick to this, maybe some way of setting the library path to include the location of this and possibly other libraries under Fedora 14. I've checked the library's location and it seems to be in /lib as far as I can tell and bz2 does work, so it's somewhere. Of course it's possible since PartImage is pre-version 1 but doesn't have much if any activity on its forum that something has changed position in Fedora and the install isn't looking for it in the right place.

I've seen one blurb in the PartImage files that indicates that maybe using env to set environment variables on entrance to configure might work, but I'm not sure what variable to set or how to make it find the bz2 library. Note that I've been a UNIX user and administrator in the past, but that was in the System 7 days so that's rusty and I have no prior experience with LINUX of any kind.

Software :: Partimage-doc Downloaded/ Can't Find?

Sep 9, 2010

Used the ubuntu software center to download partimage-doc, then tried to find it with the search function using the word part. Three files showed up in one section but not partimage-doc. How do I find it? I want to read about the program to decide whether to download it.

I'm new to LQ and wonder what is the best way to find this post after the suggested 24 hour wait? Been using linux for most of this year and am enjoying it very much. Will dump windows completely as soon as it is possible to watch Netflix movies and read Barnes an Nobel books with linux.

Ubuntu :: Changing Filesystem - Using Partimage To Make Copy Of Data

Feb 22, 2010

I have my / partition on an SSD that I formatted in ext3 but I now realise that, in order to use TRIM, I need to be ext4. Can I use Partimage to make and image of the partition, format it (using GParted) and then restore the image? Basically, do Partimage files survive a filesystem change?

Debian :: Partimage Does Not Support Ext4 - Alternative?

Aug 27, 2010

I thought I'll be smart, and installed squeeze on ext4 partitions ( boot-ext2, root-ext4, home-ext4 and swap). With my Lenny (ext3), I use partimage to backup the / partition, and rsync to backup my /home files. Now, I found out that partimage does not work with ext4. Are there other GNU packages I can use to backup my / partition?

Software :: Save An Image Of Windows Results In Partimage Freezing At The "NTFS Information"

Aug 13, 2009

I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.

General :: Ubuntu - Delete Key Does Not Work?

Apr 9, 2010

My delete key does not work in ubuntu, it does nothing. I understand that this is a common problem, but I could not solve it with the information I found elsewhere.

I ran xev. Pressing the 'a' key gives:

KeyRelease event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x2c00001,
root 0x1a6, subw 0x0, time 7255643, (-113,-107), root:(425,300),
state 0x2010, keycode 38 (keysym 0x61, a), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (61) "a"


Interesting, Ctrl-v then delete makes the cursor flash once, then nothing is displayed. Pressing Enter after that gives ^M then nothing (not even a new prompt).

Enter once more yields : command not found.

General :: Can't Get Ssh To Work After Updating Ubuntu

Feb 20, 2011

I upgraded by doing:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
$ sudo do-release-upgrade

And now I can't get a ssh or scp connection! The damn provider support won't help me because they don't support any more recent version of ubuntu than 8.04. (which is too old for what I need )

So any Idea how I can get the ssh daemon running again ? I have access to a PLESK control panel -> I can modify files, start services and restart the server.

General :: Sound On Ubuntu Doesn't Work

Mar 7, 2011

I have this old kUbuntu box here, which used to be 8.04. For some reason after a bunch of upgrades and other unrelated changes sound doesn't work any more.

Sound works on this machine when rebooting to Windows, so it's not hardware problem. It used to work on Linux on this machine before, so it's not weird hardware. (lspci says 00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)) This problem persists across resets. alsamixer etc. claims sound is not muted, and volume is high. it's the same no matter which program I try to play some sounds (or which -ao for mplayer, default seems to be pulse) nothing obvious shows up in system settings

Do I really need to reinstall the system to fix that, or is there something simple I'm missing?

General :: Getting VMware Server To Work On Ubuntu 9.10

Jan 18, 2010

I'm trying to get VMware Server 2.0.2 (64-bit version) to work on my Ubuntu workstation. However, the install script ($ sudo ./ runs into problems with the kernel modules:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.31-14-generic/build/include]
Extracting the sources of the vmmon module.
Building the vmmon module.
Using 2.6.x kernel build system.
make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only' .....
Unable to build the vmmon module.
Execution aborted.

Am I missing some required packages? This is 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). uname -a returns Linux hostname 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 14:05:01 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux. Got VMware Server 2.0.2 working. However, if you have some tips on getting VMware Server 1.0.x to work with latest Ubuntu easily (without having to compile the whole kernel, for instance), please share those too! My first impression is that I don't like 2.0 at all, and would much rather use 1.0.x if only I got it working.

General :: Get Vidalia / TOR To Work On Ubuntu System?

Sure, there's HideMyAss! add-on for Google Chrome, but I just want to try it all out. Can someone help me?

General :: Script Run At Startup Does Not Work Under Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Apr 29, 2011

I've got a script than ran fine under Ubuntu 7.10 but I'm having a problem with it under Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. The script runs fine when executed via sudo. The script is in /etc/init.d, it's executable, I registered it with update-rc.d, and (according to ps) it's running. It just doesn't work.

Here's the script:
cd /home/xxxx
while [ true ]; do
kermit -q <pc.kcs
sleep 5

kermit is installed and runs properly, the directory /home/xxxx exists, the file pc.kcs exists (remember: the script runs when executed via sudo).

General :: Get Vodafone Dongle To Work With Ubuntu?

I am trying to get my daughters Ubuntu Laptop to connect to the internet via a Vodafone USB dongle.

I have managed to get the modem itself to connect to Vodafone using the Sakis3G script (brilliant), however once connected the laptop will not pass data through this connection. i.e. when I select "Vodafone prepaid" as a network connection, the little pop up comes up and says GSM no connected?

When I get a connection information from Sakis, it gives an IP address and even had a tiny bit of throughput, however I do not know how to tell it to use the vodafone thingy.

General :: (Ubuntu 10.04) Advanced Graphics Won't Work

Feb 26, 2011

I have been trying to get the advanced graphics for compiz, emerald, and cairo dock working for a few days now, but alas, I have failed horribly. I tried to uninstall compiz and emerald a few days ago (stupidly) and since then, these problems have arisen. I tried seeking help on, but they were unable to help. You can see the entire thread at the following link:

If you want a detailed list of everything I've done, you can go to that site, but here's a summary: I entered a series of code that I was lead to believe would eradicate compiz from my system so that I could go through with a full reinstallation. However, the result was that I now can't load any advanced graphics from emerald, compiz or cairo dock. I've tried reinstalling the entire operating system, but I'm getting the same problem. I also tried a live CD for 10.10, but with the same results.

I don't know if this is a relevant piece of information, but one thing of note is that I typed "compiz --replace" into the terminal and got the following:


WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!

General :: Ubuntu / Sudo Also Doesn't Work

Jun 30, 2011

I have ubuntu server 8.x which works Ok but the other day I changed the owner of some files "the directory /etc" from root me. Now a lot commands do not work like reboot and such. So I tried to put ownership back to root and I can't. I say I dont have proper privilege. Sudo also doesn't work. I conect to the server using ssh with putty. What could I do to fix the problem? Update to the new version? This server has been working really well for a few years. The reason I changed the owner of the directory to myself is so I could edit some config files from my windows machine using a FTP client like WinSCP.
