Software :: Emacs Freezes Doing DNS Lookup / Fix A Network Configuration File?

Apr 28, 2011

When emacs freezes doing a DNS lookup, that makes it rather hard to fix a network configuration file. Why does it need to do that?

OpenSUSE Network :: Name Lookup DNS - Unknown Host

Jan 8, 2010

I can lookup DNS hostnames with dig and nslookup, but nothing else seems to be able to resolve anything. ping, telnet, Firefox, everything gets "unknown host".

For example:
> dig
; <<>> DiG 9.6.1-P2 <<>>
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 20438
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 3, AUTHORITY: 13, ADDITIONAL: 0



> ping
ping: unknown host
> ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=55 time=97.2 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=55 time=98.9 ms

OpenSUSE Network :: Warning - Address Lookup Does Not Work

Feb 8, 2011

I am trying to use a ZTE AC2726 USB EVDO Modem on openSuSE Linux 11.3 Gnome to connect to the internet. I have edited the /etc/wvdial.conf file as follows:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 57600
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = .....

When I execute the wvdial command on the terminal the following error appears
joey-suse:~ # wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
OK .....

The /etc/resolv.conf file has the DNS addresses as below

How do I resolve this and connect to the internet?

OpenSUSE Network :: Large File Download Will Start And Then Freezes

Mar 26, 2010

I've started having problems with large file downloads. A download will start and after a while freeze. The downloads window reports the correct connection speed and gives an estimated time to complete, but it stays frozen. Small downloads, torrents and surfing are not affected. I can do everything else normally even when the download is frozen. I've checked with my ISP and everything with my equipment checks out.

General :: Reverse DNS Lookup From A File?

Oct 4, 2009

I have a file consisting of unique IP addresses - one per line I want to find the name of the host for each address. I tried the following:


nslookup < file_name

This worked except it gives me a lot of extraneous information such as the servers providing the answers. This is too much information for me and would simply like each line of IP numbers to be replaced with a domain name. I tried using the same strategy using host and hostname and dig but I must have given the wrong command as I had no results.

General :: (xubuntu) Click On Webpage File And Open File With Emacs?

Aug 26, 2010

I am using xubuntu and there are a few types of files on website that instead of downloading and saving and then opening with emacs, I would rather when the radio button choice comes up say open with emacs. I am using xubuntu with xfce, and there is no line for a command to be entered as some ubuntu editions have. In the choice of changing the opening program from mousepad to something else, it says search and allows to navigate to find a program, but I cant find emacs anywhere not in etc/ or elsewhere. So where is its executable to direct the program chooser to?

Ubuntu :: Latex Syntax Using Flymake: Emacs / Configuration Error Has Occured While Running Texify?

Jan 29, 2011

I'm trying to use emacs in the auctex mode. But Flymake complains about something I could not understand. This is the error it shows whenever I open a tex file.

Flymake:Configuration error has occured while running (texify --pdf --tex-option=-c-style-errors PATH_TO_FILE_DIRECTORY/FILE_flymake.tex).
Flymake will be switched OFF.

I have texify installed on my system. I also tried suggestions in the emacs wiki on FlymakeTex, added the following lines in my .emacs file:

(defun flymake-get-tex-args (file-name)
(list "pdflatex" (list "-file-line-error" "-draftmode"
"-interaction=nonstopmode" file-name)))
How do I stop this msg and use flymake.

Red Hat :: Network Interface Configuration File Rewritten

Feb 20, 2011

This past Friday as I was performing regular maintenance on my RHEL / CentOS servers, I ran yum upgrades on them and when they rebooted, I realized there were network issues and I could not longer access them via Ping or SSH. When I jumped on the console, I realized that it created a new 'ifcfg-eth0' file with none of my static information & the old 'ifcfg-eth0' file with all my static info had been renamed to 'ifcfg-eth0.bak'. It appears that the MAC address on the new file and the old .bak file are different and I have no idea why. I have no changed or altered anything on the server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Other File That Stores The Network Configuration Content Besides The Int?

Oct 1, 2010

For Ubuntu 10.04, I can configure the network by "Network Connections". This configuration is done by doing the following operation sequences(System->Preferences->Network Connections->wired->auto eth0). Then I can connet to and browse the internet. If I type the command "ifconfig", I can see the ip I configured for eth0. Part of the content is as blow:


inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

But in the "interfaces" file, there is no eth0 content. The whole content is simply as below:


cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

I think there should be other files that keep the eth0 configuration content.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Network-manager-openvpn - Emacs ?

Oct 4, 2010

It's been a while since I meant to resolve this emacs-related issue when installing basically any package.

Since I really need network-manager-openvpn, I decided to finally try and ask.

This is a known bug I believe, with no fix if I understand well. My question is: is there a way to go around it (instead of fixing it)

Here it goes : when installing a package (in this case, network-manager-openvpn), emacs gets in the way like this:


And the package is not installed.

I have already tried uninstalling emacs. Doesn't work...

Software :: Emacs: Open A File In The Predefined Frame?

Nov 16, 2010

I split vertically Emacs window to 2 frames. In the left frame I edit the code, in the right frame I navigate through files and directories in Dired mode.It is possible to tell Emacs that anytime I choose the file and press Enter in the right frame, the file will be opened in the left frame?I am almost sure that there is a solution for this but I cannot figure out how to do it, and I was not successful for a moment to google for a correct solution

Debian Configuration :: Ifconfig Wasn't Displaying The Same Information That Resides In /etc/network/interfaces File

Aug 14, 2011

i recently started sockets programming. In the process i began to look for relevant network information about my computer and realized that ifconfig wasn't displaying the same information that resides in my /etc/network/interfaces file. On the interfaces file my IP address is for interface eth0 but ifconfig displays I was under the impression that ifconfig got its information from the interfaces file but clearly doesn't. I tried re configuring the device with ifconfig and then disabling and re enabling the device with ifdown and ifup so that the device updated its information but it didn't.

Debian Configuration :: DomU Freezes With Task

We have several systems (DELL-Server PowerEdgde) installed with Debian Jessie 8.4 (physical server and VM) and if the server has big Disk I/O (copy, backup with Backup Exec) the VMs freeze.

Debian Configuration :: System Freezes Without Any Log Entry

Feb 26, 2011

I have a Dell Latitude E6410 which I can boot from an Iomega external hard drive when I want to run Linux on it. It is a work issued Windows XP laptop and when I travel, I am more comfortable with Linux, so I created a dual boot option without touching their hardware. The external hard drive plugs in to the USB ports and the BIOS picks it up as the primary boot media, although the internal drive is still present. (That is the desired outcome).The problem is that the system periodically locks up solid and only a forced power off will get it to respond. The system seems to go into a kernel panic and fails to write anything before dying. The system completely locks up and stops responding to mouse and keyboard. It also seems to drop off the network. When I look at the logs after restarting, nothing at all shows up related to a kernel panic or anything else. To further complicate the diagnosis, on the reboots, sometimes the boot process locks up at "Starting GDM3", sometimes it doesn't, and wont for several attempts but eventually will boot to gnome. Some times it runs fine for a few hours, sometimes for only a few minutes. Can anyone recommend a way to diagnose this?I am trying to run Debian 6.0 32-bit with the defaults.

Debian Configuration :: Battery Drain And Xsane Freezes

Apr 7, 2016

After a successful install of the MFC-J4420DW printer and scanner using Brother's install utility, I am experience severe battery drain and xsane freezes (total system lockup, requiring using CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ keyboard command REISUB or hard reset).

The Brother support page and utility/drivers are found here: URl....My laptop is the HP Elitebook 8540W and I am running Debian 8 using LVM, separate partitions for /home, /var, /temp, /swap, and /. I have looked at logs in /var/log. kern.log, daemon.log, messages and dmesg, but have not found any relevant info ...

I purged all drivers/packages and tried a manual install using each deb package, but ran into some permission errors, so I purged again. I also purged xsane and reinstalled it, then did a complete printer reinstall using the brother Driver Install Tool.The tool works great, full functionality for the MFC-J4420DW. But I know I can't live with the power drain, and I would really prefer to use Gimp and the xsane plugin rather than simple scan ..

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard And Mouse Or Maybe Screen - Freezes

Mar 29, 2010

So it's a beautiful day and I'll be happily using my computer when I realise that the screen is no longer showing that I'm typing or moving my mouse (or finger across a touch-pad). I can leave my computer in this frozen/crashed state for hours. My only recourse is to drain the battery or hold down the power button until the computer shuts down. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop/notebook. As my memory serves, it has an ATI graphics thingy. Radeon 1400, maybe. But I've had the computer for years and this behaviour has emerged only the past couple of months, with seemingly increasing frequency.

The OS is
# uname -a
Linux polaris 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Jan 10 22:40:40 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
(aka Squeeze?)

Sometimes this happens within minutes of turning the computer on and logging into Gnome. Sometimes this happens only hours after I've started using the computer (mainly just surfing the web). Sometimes it is preceded by a loud boop sound and the following if I have console open, sometimes not. So maybe that's unrelated. But that happened just now so I thought I'd throw it in.

One weird thing: Usually this happens within an hour of starting to use the computer, but one occasion I noticed I had not had the problem for several hours. On that occasion, the only thing I noticed I was doing that was also unusual: I had turned on and forgotten about a kvm virtual machine. After I shut down the vm, I had about only a minute before the freeze. I'm surprised now that it hasn't frozen since I started typing thing. Maybe I should always keep this forum open in a browser window.

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard Freezes Periodically In Testing

Feb 17, 2011

I am running testing (with fluxbox) and my keyboard periodically freezes, meaning whatever I type in it doesn't respond. This lasts a few seconds (can be 2-3 or sometimes even more like 10) and one's it comes back I get all the keystrokes I was typing during the freeze. The frequency of the freezes can be like 4-5 times every hour and are very annoying. I can't seem to relate them to anything, they can occur during heavy usage but also when the box is doing absolutely nothing but waiting lazily for me to type some google search terms.

Can anybody help me track this problem down? At the moment I am using a wireless keyboard but this must be unrelated since I tested a couple of other keyboards (both wireless and wired) and the problem persists.

OpenSUSE :: VBox + Suse X64 - Freezes During Auto Configuration

Feb 16, 2010

Has anyone successfully installed the x64 on VBox? Is there a different way to install the x64, because I don't think VBox can process this version. The few problems I have are:

1) it freezes during Auto Configuration.
2) freezes during boot initialization.
3) after reboot it keeps prompting me to complete a failed install, and doesn't matter if I accept to complete or not, I have the same problem.
4) freezes randomly executing system programs.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel 2.6.32 And Xserver Freezes - Crash Fubar?

Sep 28, 2010

I run an old Toshiba Satellite M35x S114 Laptop with Debian Testing, it always runned smoothly - although it IS testing . Since the latest update to kernel 2.6.32 , the X server just freezes. The init goes all the way to gdm, and then a blank screen , no mouse pointer, no way to get out of this screen (not CTRL+ALT+BACSPACE not CTRL+ALT+F1 / F2 ... etc) just a hard reset.

I can boot to the older .30 kernel with absolutely no problem, gdm starts normally login successfull (as I am able to write this on the reffered machine and all).

Here comes the gory details:

>>> The graphic card:
lspci | grep gra
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)
>>> When it works with .30 kernel:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Noting that there are no more Modlines in the new Xorg.0.log

Besides, X is disabling the mouse and keyboard in the configuration.
