I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10.SSH, samba, LAMP server, etc etc etc are now failing to start when the os boots. I can start all of these services manually but is a bit of an annoyance.Maybe something simple but am not sure where to look to fix this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Makes A Package Part Of Online Update?

Sep 7, 2010

how certain packages such as glib, yast2, etc. are part of "Online update" i.e. new versions show up there, whereas certain packages are not (e.g. NVIDIA drivers). Is it a setting on the repository, the package, or does the new version need to be labelled specifically?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Load Ubuntu Or Windows 7 After Wubi Install

Nov 26, 2010

I am a brand new Linux user and so far I am really liking the setup, except I am having a big problem. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 from inside Windows 7 Ultimate using Wubi and after restart, I was only able to run Ubuntu for one power off/back on cycle. After I turned it back on, it gave me the option of which OS to boot, and I chose Linux. When I restarted the next time, it just went to the GRUB rescue screen and I cannot load either!

I have tried booting from hard disk and from usb with ubuntu 10.10 on it. Hard disk brings me to the grub rescue screen. USB gets me to the Ubuntu loading screen. The dots progress as if it is loading but I've been waiting 30 minutes with no loading. EDIT: I pressed esc after rebooting (it got stuck again) and here is what it says: (process:347): GLib-Warning **: getpwuid_r():failed due to unknown user id (0) stdin: error 0

Fedora :: "trying To Unpack Rootfs Image As Initramfs" Fail To Load Install Cd?

May 15, 2010

I've had a hell of a time with an extremely unpredictable recently built computer. I don't even know where to start with thetory, so I'll try to share some key facts.Running Fc12It is a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR. Reviews on NewEgg havee complaints about instability and it's lack of claimed DDR3 support. I had to use setting described by another reviewer to underclock my memory to get it to work. It has since passed memtest many times.I've encountered mutliple occasions of a complete system freeze.

Booting after freeze seems to require a random amount of restarts to get it to come up. Sometimes I have to hit the reset button 30+ times until I can get the log in prompt to come up.Right now, I have one SATA HDD, in IDE compatibility mode in the system. dropped the FC12 Stable dvd in, the very DVD I installed the current system with, to install it again on another partition. I get to the same point every time, where it hangs:"trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs"Googling that didn't help me much, since it mostly seemed to address people messing with their own kernel builds.

If I choose "boot from local drive" on the options list from the install DVD, it goes to "PRESS ANY KEY TO REBOOT" with a blinking underscore cursor. Where when I boot normally, it will either give me JUST the blinking underscore alone, or the FC loading screen with no progress. I suspect this motherboard is a pile of **** and needs to be RMA'ed, or simply returned. Anyone care to support or reject that hypothesis?

OpenSUSE Install :: All Login / Su Attempts Fail After Applying Su Update Patch (11.2 / X86_64)

Yesterday I applied the su security patch to my openSuSE 11.2 x86_64 system.After applying the patch, any attempt at su failed, and after rebooting the system earlier this morning any login (root, user, otherwise) fails with a "Permission Denied".Is it possible that the su update somehow messed up my (standard) pam settings?

Software :: Apache 2.2 LDAP Authentication Makes Pages Load Slow

Apr 16, 2010

I've enabled LDAP authentication on my 2.2.15 Apache server, but now pages load very slowly. As in, 1.515s with it enabled, and 187.4ms without (just the base page, numbers collected via Firebug). Here's my LDAP config (other directives snipped) -

LoadModule ldap_module modules/
LoadModule auth_basic_module modules/
LoadModule authnz_ldap_module modules/
LDAPSharedCacheSize 500000
LDAPCacheEntries 2048
LDAPCacheTTL 3600
LDAPOpCacheEntries 2048
LDAPOpCacheTTL 3600 LDAPTrustedGlobalCert CA_DER ssl/ldapserver.der

<Directory "/example">
AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthName "intranet credentials"
AuthLDAPURL "ldaps://,"
Require ldap-group cn=example,grp,ou=memberlist,ou=groups,

How can I speed this up, or at least determine why it's so slow?

General :: 10.04 Update Fail, Get A BusyBox V1.10.2 Error" Update‏?

May 30, 2010

I have tried numerous times to install ubuntu 10.04 through a CD and it always fails to boot. I get a message similar to this one: "BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) -"

I have ubuntu 9.10 installed at the moment, and when I update it to 10.04, through update, I still get the same message.

If I were installing from a cd like I was, I could MD5 test the ISO I downloaded and check the CD for defects, but what about when all I'm doing is updating from the update manager?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fetching From Update Servers Fail When When Using Update Managers?

Aug 21, 2010

I have Ubuntu Karmic 64-bit installed. Update manager tells me there are updates available, but when i try to install them, downloading the updates fail and throws this error:


Failed to fetch

Consequently, a similar error occurs when I try installing Sun Java 6 Runtime.


Failed to fetch Connection failed [IP: 80]

Ubuntu Restricted Extras stalls when it's time to download the Java package I tried synaptic, update manager, aptitude, apt-get, and they all throw similar errors. Then I also tried connecting to different servers, to no avail. So to check if it's my connection to the net that has problems somehow, I tried downloading the file directly through my web browser, and it works. (But it's not recommended, and it won't let me!, install the updates manually, right?) I tried searching for the errors on the net and in the forums, and they're all somehow related to proxy servers. I then checked if I'm using some inappropriate proxy settings, and everywhere it's all set up to connect to the net directly, which is, well, my setup.

Take note though, that I am able to install other softwares normally, i.e, using synaptic, apt-get etc. The ones I tried include Pidgin and Mplayer. It's just these updates and Java:


jeanne@jeanne-desktop:~$ sudo sudo aptitude upgrade
W: The "upgrade" command is deprecated; use "safe-upgrade" instead.
Reading package lists... Done

Ubuntu :: Just Got My Laptop Back / Can't Load WUBI

May 26, 2010

So I took my laptop to Best Buy to get my screen replaced and I just got it back today. I loaded the computer up and instantly tried to load my WUBI installation. It brings up the error screen talking about no wubibuilder (this is a normal occurrence that I'm not worried about, it was doing that before I took it, and it would just load past it) BUT NOW it instantly restarts the computer and brings up GRUB again. I can load into my Windows 7 Installation successfully.

I'm wondering if Best Buy reset the timeout when they were doing the dignostics and if so, how would I increase it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fails To Load After Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 On Wubi?

I had a 10.04 Wubi install on my Win7 notebook. I selected the option to upgrade to 10.10 from update manager. It downloaded all the updates, but reported that due to some problem, only a partial upgrade will be possible. I agreed. And now, when I select Ubuntu from the startup OS list, it just shows a blank screen and restarts within 3-5 seconds. What do I do??

Ubuntu :: Administrative Tools Fail To Load?

May 9, 2010

I found a similar problem. The poster used a similar title "Administrative tools fail to open - karmic" I also have karmic and four tools fail to load; Ubuntu Software Center, Hardware Drivers, System Testing, and Update Manger. Synaptic and System Monitor run. I ran update-manager and software-manger and was told module pygtk does not exist. I ran "sudo apt-get install pygtk" and it said that did not exist as a package. The terminal update and upgrade also work.

me@me-laptop:~$ update-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/update-manager", line 26, in <module>
import pygtk
ImportError: No module named pygtk
me@me-laptop:~$ software-center


Would the best solution be to reinstall the OS from fresh downloads as at least the Hardware Drivers tool works with the live USB?

Ubuntu :: Update Makes WIFI Stop Working Dell 1018?

Jan 7, 2011

I have installed the wifidrivers needed to use the wifi on the 1018 in Ubuntu Netbook Edition. It works until I get asked to install 5 (Sorry, don't remember their name) more updates, now I can not see Wireless networks under the networkmanager, It does not help installing the driver again, and I can not remove it either. It says the driver is activated but not in use. Also note that in desktop mode I lost my other workspaces, I can not change what window is on top and the quit, minimize and full window on windows is not there anymore.

General :: Cannot Install Ubuntu 10.10 (Wubi)

Nov 6, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu for several months and am "getting to grips" with it. However, recently I needed to renew my hdd. I used recovery disks and back-ups of my "data" - all went well and Vista runs fine and I can access my "stuff". But when I install Ubuntu (Wubi) using a pendrive OR a cd - Ubuntu seems to install OK. But after I reboot my pc and get the option to select an OS - Vista OR Ubuntu - I cannot move the highlighted option with the arrow keys on my keyboard so it defaults (after 20 seconds) to Vista every time? I would like to try the newer (10.10) Ubuntu Release.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Drivers Fail To Load After Upgrade To Karmic

Laptop with Nvidia integrated GO 6100. Now stuck in low graphics mode.

Uninstall/reinstall ENVY. No joy.

"Hardware Drivers" reports that Nvidia drivers version 173 are activated at the moment, but not in use. Got the same report from the 185s. 'nvidia-xconfig' produced no results.

Not sure where to go from here. Please assist.

On a positive note, my onboard Broadcom wireless is working without ndiswrapper.
