Debian Installation :: Folder With Question Mark

Nov 14, 2014

I'm installing Debian for the first time on a MacBook but each time I use the ISO I only get a blinking folder with question mark on startup. This occurred with both the small and large ISO from I think it's a known GRUB issue. I can boot using refit off HD but I still can't get into full install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Boot From Disc - System Shows A Folder With A Question Mark And Boots Into The Default OS 8.6

Mar 9, 2010

I've tried to install 9.10 on my PowerBook G3, with both a CD and DVD. However, the system shows a folder with a question mark and boots into the default OS 8.6. I even tried with an older ubuntu disc (8 point something) that had worked on another computer, but this didn't work either. I know the computer can boot from the CD drive, as it works with my OS X 10.4 DVD.

Applications :: Cross-distro Way To Get Location Of App-defaults Folder?

question to any experienced X11 dev/user: is there any way to reliably find the location of the X11 app-defaults folder on any distribution? I.e. ubuntu (hence guess also debian) uses
/usr/lib/X11/app-defaultswhile fedora/redhat use/usr/share/X11/app-defaults

Fedora :: Unable To Delete Folder From Root

Sep 2, 2010

I have a folder "scratchbox" created by a user "hari" (which is cross-compilation toolkit, and creates soft-links if it might ). Now I deleted the user "hari" by using userdel command. I didn't uninstall scratchbox from "hari" account. Now even when i login by root, i am unable to remove the "scratchbox" folder.

[harsh@ubuntu] lsattr -d /scratchbox/
-----------------e- /scratchbox/

I have created new user (harsh) and want to install the "scratchbox" again, but it won't allow.

harsh@ubuntu:~$ sudo rm -rf /scratchbox/
rm: cannot remove `/scratchbox/users/hari/proc/asound/Intel': Operation not permitted
rm: cannot remove `/scratchbox/users/hari/proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer': Operation not permitted

Fedora Security :: How To Delete Folder Without Root Permission

Apr 23, 2009

I have a system in which I do not have root access to. On that system, I have my own directory which I share with other users. I am trying to clean it up when I noticed that there was a subdirectory created by another users in my group that I cannot delete. It has all the permissions set besides global write. How can I delete this folder without root permission? I can't even chmod or chown it.

Fedora Installation :: Why Mark Vista Partition Inactive

Oct 17, 2009

I first noticed this behaviour with Fedora 9, so I guess the install process is behaving as intended. However, when I install grub in the linux boot partition, SDA 6 with my current configuration, I would like my Vista partion to remain active. I use EasyBCD in Vista to control booting, as I have more Vista systems than linux systems. Currently, I have to boot the Vista install DVD after every Fedora install to do a start up repair on the hard drive. After the Fedora install, the Vista partition is marked inactive and needs to be marked active again. IMHO, if the linux boot loader is loaded in the linux boot partition, the currently active Windows partition should be left active. Unless I'm missing something, the MBR on the drive is going to be pointed at some other partition than the linux partition whenever grub is installed in the linux boot partition instead of the MBR. It's not that hard to activate the Windows partition, but after installing a few F12 alpha snaps and beta TCs and RCs, it's getting annoying. Any chance this can be changed?

Fedora :: Building GCC 4.4.3 Cross Compiler On F12

I am trying to build a gcc 4.4.3 cross-compiler. I downloaded the gcc 4.4.3 release, uncompressed it, made a new directory called gccbuild and cd'd there. I have already installed gmp, mpfr, and mpc in /usr/local. These are the commands I used:

configure --target=arm-linux --enable-languages=c --with-gmp=/usr/local --with-mpfr=/usr/local --with-mpc=/usr/local
However, the build fails with

Fedora :: Getting Error While Cross Compiling Kernel On 14 Host

Feb 9, 2011

I am cross compiling a linux kernel for the mips platform. I have installed the tool chain and everything. When i try to build the kernel i get the following error message.

HOSTCC -static scripts/basic/fixdep
scripts/basic/fixdep.c: In function traps
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:377:2: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:379:4: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules

If i set up the toolchain on a fedora 13 machine with the exact same procedure, the cross compilation works fine. I can't figure out how this can be fixed. I am currently considering downgrading to fedora 13 due to this.

Ubuntu :: How To Delete A Root-restricted Folder

Sep 9, 2010

I backed up my information from 10.4 to an external hard drive before I switched to pinguy using sbackup. Once I installed pinguy, I made sure to download sbackup and hit restore. So far, all fine and dandy, except when it restored my information, it extracted all the information to a new folder in /home, which is root-restricted, so I can't even access it normally. I got annoyed, and just manually extracted the music and documents (which were the only things I really cared about anyway), and now I'd like to delete the 15 or so gigabytes just sitting on my computer, taking up space. The folder being root, I couldn't just drag it to the wastebasket. so I started terminal, entered root, typed rm /home/tmpuWiQlI (the folder in question), only to be told it's a directory and can't delete it! What gives?

Ubuntu :: Delete A Folder Owned By Root?

Jul 4, 2011

I copied a folder from /media/memory_stick into a folder /opt/openerp/server/bin/addons.
Trying to open the copied folder I discovered that it is impossible because it is owned by root.I should like to delete the copied folder.To avoid this ownership I copied the folder in /home/cristian/Downloads and I will copy it with:sudo cp -R folder_name /opt/openerp/server/bin/addonsMaybe in this way the folder will be not more owned by root.I tried already but because in the destination folder already exist one owned by root nothing is happening.

Ubuntu :: Are Programs Installed In The Root Or Home Folder

Jan 8, 2011

and if i didnt customize partitions when i installsed and just used the whole drive - they're both together in the same partition right, the home just goes into the root? but it still creates a 2-3 gig swapfile?

do you recommend creating separate partitions for the home and root folder during install? is there any benefit besides being able to reinstall ubuntu without losing your data?
