General :: Meerkat Install Corrupting Win7 Partition Wifi Drivers?

Dec 28, 2010

I've had an annoying couple of days beginning with a win7 reinstall on a dual boot system (win7/10.10) that wiped out grub. I reinstalled ubuntu (10.04) in the hopes of just getting grub2 back up, but that failed and I ended up with a new install of 10.04 on the partition and a happily functioning and coexisting win7/ubuntu wit grub working the way that I wanted.

However, I'm traveling, and tried to reinstall the wifi drivers manually. I think I messed something up and installed the 10.10 drivers onto the 10.04 system (I only had a 10.04 disk and the pendrive usb method failed). Anyway, when I tried to (re)install the drivers from the cd, I got the error: a later driver has already been installed. However, the problem at hand is as follows: now my win7 install doesn't see any of the wireless networks around.So, I think I somehow fraked the wifi card.

Fedora :: GRUB Version 0.97 Is Corrupting Ntfs Partition

Mar 4, 2010

Maybe some experts have a deeper knowledge what's going on? Seems GNU GRUB version 0.97 is corrupting ntfs partition if installed on it on my


How I have achieved this: Upgraded (in fact installed on the same partition without reformatting) W7 32 (RC-7100) to W7 64 enterprise. It has nuked grub (used to boot FC-12) and silently removed a small boot (or windows backup) partition so ntfs became sda3 instead of sda4. Booting from fedora dvd causes the sequence listed above.

The main problem here is that grub doesn't boot windows: there was "unknown filesystem" error. After fixing boot record with "testdisk" I get: "booting windows in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... booting windows in 3 ... 2.. forever" If I use W7 repair disk it fixes windows and nukes grub away (ntfs partition has to be active for that otherwise the smart soft can't find it). So, making sda1 active and placing grub there is not an option...

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - How To Partition BootCamp Drive For Win7

Feb 22, 2011

I am new to linux , I installed Suse 11.3 a week ago on my new iMac 27'' core i7 and my experience have been wonderful so far. However I would like to install windows beside Suse (for games and windows only apps). I used bootcamp to create a 200G partition for Suse, and I would like to partition the bootcamp further to install windows beside Suse, and choose the OS at boot time using rEFIt. I searched google and couldn't find a guide for installing windows 7 when linux is installed first.

1- I want to learn how to partition the boot camp drive using suse to create an empty partition for windows install.
2- I want to learn how to install windows 7 on the mentioned partition without harming any boot configurations, as I said I want to be able to choose from the OSes at boot time using rEFIt bare in mind that the current installed OSes are suse 11.3 and OS X.

I even tried Esc for boot menu, then i select to boot form cd, but it still boots in windows.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Avoid Windows MBR From Overwriting And Corrupting Grub

Jul 18, 2011

I had opensuse/winxp running.

First windows xp wouldn't boot - then opensuse **** out and I had nothing but a black screen. I spent about two days trying to figure out what in god's name happened. I finally got a copy of winxp recovery disk and it couldn't find the partition that windows was on. That gave me some idea of what was going on. So I tried to fix the matter from partitionmagic. I reinstalled grub making sure that everything was associated properly. I still couldn't get either opensuse or windows to boot after many many different trial and error attempts.

After deciding there was no help for it. I decided to slave my hard drive and wipe to start over. So I booted partition magic from USB and deleted my opensuse partition and -what do you know - windows booted right up. Aside from feeling windows xp's smug grin as the logo appeared - i am perplexed as to how this happened. My guess is that MBR tried to overwrite grub. But I think that the loader was confused and trying to boot from the wrong partition.

I want to reinstall opensuse again. However I want to make sure that this doesn't happen. I need my xp partition for examsoft because wine doesn't seem to work for it and I can't vbox it. So is there some way to make sure that when I do install from DVD on my USB that:

1) repositories are correct
2) MBR doesn't overwrite grub (should I install Grub2 or LILO?)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDA Drivers Not Installing In Lucid Or Meerkat?

Jun 10, 2011

There are several things going on here. * Mouse jumps to the side when I click on things when zoom is activated. * After an upgrade in Lucid,I'd start up the computer and everything would be very slow. Windows would open from the bottom and I could not click on anything cause when I tried,the mouse would jump to the side. Zoom slow and clunky. Mouse fireball always turned off. I'd uninstall and reinstall Compiz and that would fix it for about three days and then it's back to the same problems. I end up having to click no effects then click effects (middle button) and it looks for drivers,then I have to reactivate the mouse fireball. This happened every day,day in day out. So I installed Meerkat Sat. and it was fine till this morning,now the same problem has reasserted itself.What can I do? Do I need a new video card?

General :: Partition Lost After Win7 Installed

Jul 28, 2011

I have a PC, with 1 HD of 500GB and the following partitions:
Windows XP - NTFS 50 GB
Windows 7 - NTFS 350 GB
Linux Ubuntu - 98 GB
Linux swap - 2GB

The last OS that I have installed was Windows 7, and each time, when I started up my PC, I saw GRUB first, and after choosing the option to load windows, the Windows loader giving me 2 options, one for Windows 7 and one for Windows XP. I didn't like to see first GRUB and after that the windows loader, it was redundant, but everything was working well. One day, I decided to mix the windows 7 and the windows XP partitions (deleting the windows XP and resizing windows 7). I tried to do that with the Windows 7 utility included in the control panel but I couldn't. It said that I couldn't delete the active partition or something like that. It was not possible to delete the partition in which WinXP was stored.

Then, I decided to boot with Ubuntu and use the partitioning tool that comes with it to delete the WinXP partition. It was possible to delete the partition, and I also putted the option "bootable" on the 350GB Windows 7 partition. After that, I rebooted and it was not possible to load windows. Then I tried changing in GRUB the entry for Windows, because I thought if I could put the correct partition to load from, it wouldn't be more problems. I tried several times but I couldn't load windows, so I putted the Windows 7 DVD and I started the installation process, waiting to see an option saying that there was already a system in the partition of 350GB, and allowing me to fix the mbr in that partition.

My surprise was when I choose the partition of 350GB and the installation process began. I was afraid of to lose my data then I decided to reset the computer! And now, all my 350GB disk is gone! I can't see the partition when I enter with Ubuntu. I'm really worried about this, because the computer detects the 350GB partition as empty, and I don't know what to do! I turned off the computer and now I am using another to write this. I have all my files and important information in that partition! and It seems it's lost. I hope it's still possible to restore the partition. Actually I don't care if I have to install again my operating systems but I need my information!

General :: Seagate Momentus XT Corrupting Files ?

Jul 19, 2011

My Seagate Momentus XT hybrid hard drive is corrupting files on Linux. I would appreciate help from anyone, but I'd particularly like to know if other Momentus XT users are able to reproduce this problem;I have provided step-by-step instructions for reproducing this issue on the Seagate Community Forums.So far, four users have reproduced this problem on the following laptops and OS/distributions:

Five laptops: Lenovo Thinkpad T60, T61, T510, MSI MS-1656-ID1, and MacBook Pro (15" late 2009).
Four OS/distributions: Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora 15, openSUSE, and Mac OS X.

The instructions for reproducing the problem are simple. Here is a brief verbal description: Create a large test file, save it to another storage device (not the Momentus XT), and compute the SHA-1 checksum.Write the test file to the Momentus XT.Read the test file from the Momentus XT, calculate the SHA-1, and compare this checksum with the checksum of the original. We should have a match. We have probably reproduced the problem if they don't match. (Only 'probably', because it is possible for other issues to cause a mismatch. See the Seagate thread about identifying this specific problem by comparing the files with cmp -l.)Repeat from step (2).The Seagate thread has more details. Here are some notes from my testing (I have been able to reproduce this problem on three consecutive Momentus XT drives; I RMA'd twice and am now on the third one):

What seems to be happening is that the Momentus XT sometimes neglects to write data to the drive, so that when I read from the drive, I get what was originally on the sector, and not the correct data. This occurs in blocks of different sizes; typical sizes are 1 MiB and 512 KiB.Problem occurs on ext2, ext4, Btrfs, NTFS, and FAT32. Strangely, I was not able to reproduce this problem on ext3.Writing with the oflag=direct output flag in dd avoids this problem. Rapidly commiting data to disk with while true; do sync; sleep 0.01; done also prevents the problem.

I have only been able to reproduce this problem through a SATA and an eSATA interface. A USB connection seems to prevent the problem. (Not sure if this is due to transfer speed.)problems occur more often with large files (>2 GB). I was not able to produce problems with files smaller than about 85 MB.I was not able to reproduce the problem on Windows XP with NTFS.Gazoi at the Seagate forums was unable to reproduce the problem on FreeBSD 8.2 with UFS2.The Momentus XT passes both the extended SMART test and badblocks -w with no issues.My laptop (MS-1656-ID1) has successfully passed through 24 hours each of Memtest86+, Memtest86, memtester,and MPrime.I have tested two other storage devices (a Seagate Momentus 7200.4 and an Intel 320 series SSD) with the same procedure, and they both pass with no issues.

General :: Porting WiFi Drivers - Insmod RTMP Error

Jul 28, 2011

I am still new to porting wifi drivers. I am currently porting Ralink RT5370 driver, no problem with the compilation but when I execute insmod operation I got a lot of errors regarding RTMP. This is a part of the error I got:

rt5370sta: Unknown symbol rausb_buffer_free
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsFreeSpinLock
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsPktHeadBufExtend
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOSTaskNotifyToExit
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsGetNetDevName
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsHtonl
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsAtomicInterlockedExchange
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpUtilInit
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOSTaskInit
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsAtomicInit

insmod: can't insert '/home/rt5370sta.ko': unknown symbol in module or invalid parameter
Based on the some forum that I've read, adding the MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") is one of the solution. I did add it inside usb_main_dev.c and recompile but I still get the same errors.

OpenSUSE Install :: Borked Bootloader - "data" Partition Is Invisible In Win7

Aug 7, 2010

borked the bootloader by my own doing. When I got this machine, I had a single HDD. I partitioned it with a primary partition for Windows, followed by an extended partition with swap, /home/ and /, as well as a FAT32 partition for "general" data. (this was before NTFS write support was common) This worked well with the Win2K install. Eventually, I added a second HDD, which became part data storage, and part Windows XP install. I eventually put Win7 on it, and pulled the other HDD during setup so that the boot order of the drives determines whether I boot Win7/XP or get GRUB.

However, my "data" partition was not visible in Win7... It shows up as an unknown FS in the disk management. OK, I thought. I used Paragon partitioning software to move the "data" partition out of the extended partition and make it a primary. I could now access it from Win7. I didn't realize I had GRUB set to boot from the extended partition, so now when I boot from that HDD, I get "no operating system". No problem, I thought. I'll pop in the install CD (NET), use it to boot the installed 11.3, and run the boot loader setup. Nope- setup just hangs. Tried it with an 11.2 DVD... doing a "boot installed system" nets me a few moments of searching, "evaluating root partition", and then "no valid linux install found". Trying the boot loader reinstall from there nets me an "error changing to target environment" and the install fails.

I can still mount the / partition via rescue mode and all files appear to be intact, so I don't think I've lost any data... just grub/the MBR is borked. I've already moved the data partition back in to the extended partition but no luck. Still the same story... thus I'm stuck booting Windows until I fix this.
