I have a Dell Dimension 4400, 8 yrs old. It is set up to boot to either Open Suse 11 or Windows. I turned on the machine this morning, it booted very slowly. My screen says, "GRUB loading stage 1.5" then it says "Error 21." I can not go beyond this screen. My machine is stuck here.
I installed a suse 11.3 on my acer laptop and it worked just fine for two days.I was able to use internet as well though wi-fi driver i still had to figure out.This morning when i started it, it gave me an error like this:- Failed to load grub Error 18 now from what i understand is the solution is to downsize the harddisk partition used by the linux root to somewhat 10gb.Mine is about 40gb.
So i thought why not re-install the os again.But even after changing the bios setting to boot from cd-rom and putting in the suse dvd still its not booting from dvd and continously giving this error Error 18:Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS and then it comes to a command prompt like this grub>
I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!
Earlier today I installed SUSE 11.2 with KDE and everything worked fine at first. Then I started monkeying around. First I tried getting my XFI extremegamer to work right and that didn't go well. So I started from the install disk and repaired the install. That messed up GRUB so I couldn't choose to boot Windows 7. Tried fixing that with super GRUB disk (USB) and now GRUB gets error 22. I found that the most common cause is deleting the linux partition in windows.
I also need to install stuff, like drivers and other programs. The problem with my sound card is that I can't even hear anything out of it outside of the test sound. The included media player doesn't get anything, neither does online site like ...... On a side note, I'm thinking about just reinstalling linux and starting fresh. Considering that I'm such a linux n00b, would it be better to use KDE or GNOME?
I have ubuntu 9.04 ultimate edition 2.4 ,I am getting grub load error 18 from many days .. how can i get rid of this problem .. i used to remove the jumper & CMOS battery of motherboard whenever i got this problem ,but now even that is also not helping .. for some 2 days there wont be any problem & then the problem again repeats
When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.
I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.
When I attempt to use Putty for xterm (to run DBCA for Oracle) I check x11 and put my IP Address in the Display field of putty. However, when I then try to execute ./dbca I receive the following:
Xlib: connection to "localhost:10.0" refused by server Xlib: PuTTY X11 proxy: wrong authentication protocol attempted Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0
I notice the following when logging in to the server as well.
Last login: Fri Mar 19 13:51:19 2010 from 10.47.48.33 /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth: error in locking authority file /home/oracle/.Xauthority. These are the same steps I take successfully on all the servers. The above file exists on the servers I can initiate the GUI, but not on <server1>.
I installed bt4 alongside my windows and fedora13 partition, but my fedora won't boot after that, so I updated grub to 1.96, but still fedora13 won't boot, it displays the error, "You need to load the kernel first". When I try to boot fedora from grub command line, linux (hd0,6)/boot/<TAB> it does not show any entry, although my fedora partition is intact with vmlinuz and initramfs inside the /boot directory. BTW (hd0,6) is my fedora13 partition, file system on fedora13 is ext4, while on bt4 it is ext3.
So after having performance issues with Karmic in ext4 I decided to install Hardy with ext3. Was blazing fast, epic, I loved it. But I wanted firefox 3.5 & all the other cool stuff Karmic has.. so I decide to install Karmic, but this time with ext3 instead of 4.
First installation: After the installation went fine, no errors while installing or anything. I remove the CD and reboot. "GRUB Loading, please wait.. Error 15" I did my googling, with the live CD to try and figure out a way of fixing this error. No luck. I did find out that the error is caused by the GRUB trying to load form the wrong drive. So I try to boot directly from the Karmic drive, Error 15. Try to boot directly from the Windows drive, Error 17.
This is the first time this has ever happened to me. First time installing Hardy, everything went great. Installing Jaunty, everything went great. Installing Karmic (for the first time) everything went great. Uninstalled Karmic and installed Hardy, everything went great. Uninstalled Hardy to install Karmic = FAIL!. I did a clean install every single time. The OS is being installed (clean) in the same drive.
A 40GB drive for Windows. A 200GB drive for Ubuntu +/home +swap, and a 120GB(FAT32) for storage.
I installed Karmic 3 times, yes.. 3 times. The last time I installed I removed both the 40GB & the 120GB drives. Leaving only the one I was going to use for Ubuntu, the 200GB drive. After the installation I rebooted and Karmic loaded without problems. I'm in Karmic right now and it isn't all sluggish like it was with ext4, guess my old drives aren't good with ext4 *sight*.
But I can't use my Windows drive. When trying to boot directly from it, it gives me "GRUB Error 17" - I have to disconnect the Ubuntu drive to boot into Windows. Quick question: What the **** is going on?
Someone help, please.. I'm tired of this ****.. and if I have to install Karmic one more time, I won't. I'll just give up and disconnect my Ubuntu drive, put it away and let it accumulate dust somewhere, seriously.. Someone help me correct this without having to install the OS again.
The GRUB error is while the GRUB is loading. It doesn't give me the option to select a OS.
Before installing OpenSUSE I shrunk my Win 7 partition down in half, then created 3 partitions out of the new free space for /root, /home and /swap. I installed opensuse and when it got to the bootloader section I kept getting Grub error 17 - cannot mount selected partition, and so on. I made sure it was writing to the MBR and also into /boot if that makes a difference, but I did get a prompt that said YaST couldn't make changes to /dev/sda (I'm paraphrasing and can't remember the exact error message). At the moment I have suse installed and my windows partition intact, but no bootloader (not even windows one) so all I can do is boot to Live CD.
Below is the output of fdisk -l. There's quite a few more partitions than it's showing, sda3, sda4 and sda5 are my /home, /root, /swap and the other ones are windows partitions, like the system recovery along with the win7 install. During the suse install I formatted the home and root partitions with ext4 filesystem.
Had 3 partitions on a hard disk. Booted vista & deleted the windows 7 partition & then expanded the vista partition into the windows 7 partition. Vista kept working but when i rebooted grub starts to load & gets an error 17. How do i recover?
Previously grub would come up & give me the choice of ubuntu or vista. If i selected vista i got the choice of vista or windows 7.
So I installed openSUSE 11.1, and got everything from yast2 and then finally got nvidia.ymp or whatever. Bascially, the one click install. When i did that, I couldn't boot into the SUSE GUI. I could boot into the command line but I couldn't start X server.When I did try the Ec2-openSUSE-188.8.131.52 option, I get grub error 13. It says that the ex2fs file system is not supported, only I did not format it with ext2. I am completely stumped and I'm a newbie.
I have a system running om vmware esxi with suse 9.3 i did an inplace upgrade to 10.2. i got the follwoing error during upgrade error occurred while installing grub (version 0.97) error 21 disk cannot be found. I ignore this error and the upgrade went fine. after a reboot the server works pretty fine. Except one thing GRUB.. i cannot install it on this system. i want to install grub on this system.
I dual booted Ubuntu with Win XP, and decided to upgrade XP to Win7. Thought I knew how to do it, so excuse my dumbness. Here's where I'm at: I booted GParted, and deleted the /, /home and swap partitions, making unallocated space. I expanded Win XP partition and tried to re-boot, expecting only Windows to show. Instead, I got the Error 22 error when Grub was the first thing to load. So, back to GParted, deleted the primary partition, created a new bootable partition, formatted it NTFS, and put the Win7 disk and rebooted. This time I got a Windows error "can't load NTLdr".
Rebooted the computer without the disk, and got the Error 22 again. So it seems (?) that I'm not able to change/remove or otherwise, the Grub boot file. So the drive is currently useless, unless someone can tell me how to get the disk back to a bootable state where I can load Win7, after which I can create Ubuntu as a dual boot again.
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 am unable to get a knoppix poor mans install to boot using grub and opensuse 11.3. I have tried the same method on another box, same opensuse 11.3 and it boots fine. However, no matter what partition I put the knoppix files in on the problem box, it is the same error. I also have several opensuse kernels listed in the grub menu that were added when the kernel was updated, so the knoppix grub entry is off the screen. I have to down arrow to list the knoppix entry. I read that with this kind of error using ubunto as the host system, that running update-grub will force grub to look for bootable kernels and add it to the menu of boot choices. Does the same fix apply to opensuse 11.3? I have two versions of puppy linux working on this box as a poor mans install, so I am at a loss why it will not see the knoppix kernel. Can it be a problem of too many kernels listed in the menu.lst file? This box is a live update from opensuse 11.0.
I have suse10 64 bit installed. I am setting up a svn server on it. After installation and adding the modules ,while reloading the apache2 it's throwing the error as: HTML Code: httpd2-prefork: Syntax error on line 113 of /etc/apache2/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 31 of /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf: Cannot load /usr/lib64/apache2/mod_dav_svn.so into server: /usr/lib64/libsvn_subr-1.so.0: undefined symbol: apr_memcache_add_server
OK... I tried everything i could think of... but i still cannot get my Open SUSE 11.1 to mount my samba share at boot! I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S. My shares originate from a Windows Server 2003 RC2 machine, and it's dns server doesn't work correctly... so my mount command is
mount -t //192.168.x.x/files/ /nET/ -o username=linux,password=xxxxxx please let me know what other info you need... I don't have the internet, so it will be tommorow b4 i see this again!!! Thanks
When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory.
Im relatively new to Linux - just started working with it this week - and Im having some trouble setting up NFS. We have a 12 computer cluster running open SUSE in our lab at school, and I am trying to troubleshoot the NFS system we have created.My basic question is this - I want to find the file that sets whether or not the NFS server and client processes run on setup. Google indicates that in most linux installations, these settings can be found in the /etc/rc.conf file. I cant find this file in open SUSE, so what Im trying to figure out is where I would find the equivalent commands in open SUSE. I am basically trying to find the lines highlighted in this: <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-nfs.html> article are stored. I already know how to enable/disable the NFS server/client using YaST in the GUI, but I would prefer to find the file directly, as changing the settings in the GUI involves plugging a monitor, keyboard, and mouse into each of 12 boxes, and is very time consuming. I can change files straight from the terminal command line - much faster.
Additional background: We are using NFS in two ways on our cluster - firstly, we have installed the software package (Fluent) on the host computer, and then setup the host to share this folder with the 11 slaves. To do this, we set the host as an NFS server, with the 11 slaves as NFS clients of this folder.
Secondly, we have setup working folders on each of the slaves that we would like to use to store data (each computer has a 1.5TB drive inside). To do this, we have set each of the slaves as an NFS server, sharing the working directory with the host computer, which we setup as an NFS client of each of these 11 working folders.
The problem that I am experiencing is that each of these two things works properly by itself, but when we try to use a computer as both an NFS server and an NFS client at the same time (albeit to different folders), neither works.Any thoughts on how to move forward in troubleshooting this? My current plan of attack is to unplug all of the slaves except for one from the network, and try to get a single slave to communicate properly with the host. Once I get the first slave running, I was going to add additional slaves one at a time until they were all working. Thoughts?
