Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Draftsight And Wrong Architecture Install
Mar 13, 2011
Trying to install draftsight on my 64 bit 10.10 system to give it a try. I do solid modeling work for a living (Inventor/Solidworks) and have to use Autocad. Ran across this program a month or so ago and really like it. Much less bloated that AC but does a nice job in the 2d world for a basic program. The package installer gives me a wrong architecture message (see attached). I think I had to change that to get adobe AIR installed and wonder if its possible to do the same here.
osdlyrics_0.3.20100604-1~lucid1_i386.deb Ubuntu x86 32 bit deb package for Ubuntu 10.04 or later wont install. I'm running ubuntu 10.4 64bit. My question is why you can't install 32bit programs on a 64bit system? If you can then how do I do it? 64bit should run 32bit due to the resin that a 16bit system ran 8bit games/programs. I know in window 7 you can install 32bit programs on 64bit system.
I am having a rather odd problem on my Ubuntu 11.04 installation on a 32-bits Intel Core 2 Quad system. When I try to install packages that are not in the repositories, I keep getting the message " Wrong architecture 'i386' " in the Ubuntu Software Center. I have downloaded several packages for 32-bits systems and get the same error every time, for instance., with the Linux 32-bits Debian package for Teamviewer.
In addition to the PC, I have a laptop with an amd64, and I have transfered the pkglist from that machine to my PC to get the same environment. Could that cause any problems of the sort above?
I just got done installing ubuntu 9.04 and i went to firefox typed in myspace.com, noticed i need plug ins for adobe flash player went to install it 3 times and kept getting this Error: Wrong architecture 'i386', even tryed other plug ins and got same thing..
I am running ubuntu 10.04 on an amd 64bit laptop.Trying to run the deb file provided but is mentioned when opened in GDebi package manager that "Error: Wrong architecture 'i386'" which makes sense. There is not 64bit version. But provides the following instructions.
DEBIAN or UBUNTU users that prefer Debian Package (deb) =================================================
1. Download GimPhoto 1.4.3 for Linux Debian Package (deb), from this locations: GimPhoto 1.4.3 Debian Package (deb)
2. Install it using Gdebi OR Double-click it from Nautilus. For user with 64 bits system that using Debian Package (DEB) follow instructions below
"I'm running GimPhoto on my 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 as of today. In order to get it to run, you have to use the force command from Terminal, like this:
The correct path/location is critical. I always download everything into a "media" folder. Keep this in mind for your own installation ... your path has to be 100% correct." When I open a terminal and cd to my downloads folders, and run the following.

I have installed Fedora 13 lately, however its architecture is i686... i want to install the GNU C Compiler (both c and c++)..... now i searched for i686 architecture gcc but most of them are not compiled.. and are archives e.g., gcc-4.4.1.tar..... Also, some RPMs say about dependencies. Is there a simpler solution?
How to install Gcc, i dont have any compiler in Fedora even cc is not there!! I installed fedora from a live cd i got with the Digit Magazine!
When I ran YaST | Software Management | Package | Update if newer Package Available this morning I get this message:

What is it telling me? What should I do? What are the implications?
I just received a band new DELL laptop with a blank disk and installed Kubuntu Lucid Alternate 64 on it. No problem during install (the only option I specified was for an encrypted LVM), but when I try to boot all I can see are colored lines scrolling/blinking on the screen. If I press any key it changes to white text (unreadable) scrolling/blinking.
If I press a key during the boot and get into grub, I cannot edit the boot options, cannot go to command line, cannot use MemTest86 (maybe because the partition is encrypted). Booting with the recovery mode shows the same lines. Edit: if I try to boot with the standard LiveCD, I get the same mess, so it's abviously a video card problem. Damn, I had checked beforehand that Ubuntu could run smoothly on it.
The crash happened when I was reading a web page and the screen went black and the mouse pinterr dropped to the middle of the bottom of the screen and froze. I had to do a warm reboot to get going again. I'm using 11.4 with KDE.This is the section of the /var/log/messages from around the time of the crash at 16.42/16.44.
My old server machine running Ubuntu 6 experienced hardware failure, so I built a new machine with spare parts and decided to install 10.10. I used the 2 HDDs from the old machine and decided to use existing partitions for the 10.10 installation. I specified the existing partitions on a 250 GB PATA drive for root, /boot, /home, and swap. For some reason when I booted up 10.10 for the first time, the other HDD (750 GB SATA) was mounted as /boot. I never specified the second drive to be used for anything during the installation, so I have no idea why this happened.and how can I change the mount point for /boot? I would like the highlighted partition in the attached screenshot to be /boot. I really hope nothing on the 750 GB drive was overwritten in this whole process, because it contains all of my photo and video backup.
I've been using conky for some time now, and I haven't changed conkyrc for a while. However, when I installed lucid (fresh install) conky starts wrong with ubuntu, like in a glass box that overlaps any window. The weird thing is that if I kill conky and start it over again manually (without the script in preferences->startup applications) it is OK. Screenshots: [URL].
I'm new to fedora. I am using a core i3 desktop computer. I installed fedora 14 into my desktop and I Downloaded a wine 1.3.14.tar but I cannot install it. I tried tools/wineinstall in the terminal bu it say "Your directory is wrong".
I'm just using a plop boot cd...it does what I need, boot from hdc 2. or (hd2,1) I'm having an issue, because Im not sure how to change the mbr so when I boot the computer from the third hdd, it just works...where is the MBR, and how do I edit it, or better, is there a GUI interface I can use?
The /etc/profile said that i should do that in /etc/profile.local.I create /etc/profile.local, set the aliases, then i reboot.Now i've got a broken bash enviroment. Prompt has gone, ls colors gone, useful aliases (md=mkdir) gone.I've got this prompt: 'bash-4.0$' instead of the 'username@hostname:actual dir'.The root account has got the same errors, so i think i broke something system-wide.I removed the profile.local but the problem stays.What should i do to regain the standard bash enviroment?
What the right place to report errors in package descriptions ? There are more than two dozens categories mentioned on the openSUSE "reporting a bug" web page but none of them seem to fit. The packager of the concerned rpm is bugs.opensuse.org, no email printed out when launching rpm -qpi <package name>.
on an older computer. I get as far as the screen that asks if I want to try or install and then I get a message saying the screen resolution is wrong and I need to reset. I even disabled the hard drive in bios and still get this message. computer was built to run xp and had ubuntu on it before. I tried to upgrade the nvidia driver and broke it.
I installed opensuse 11.2 on ASUS R2E nicely It have a 7" touchscreen and works nice. The screen is correctly settled to 800x480 on boot however after a S2RAM it is reinitialized as 800x600. I made an xorg.conf with only one fixed mode on 800x480 but daesn't seems to be considered on resume. After cold boot sax2 get the right size (800x480) and after resume 800x600 The video chipset is intel 945 GM.
May this be related to hardware reinitialization ? How to re-initialize X on resume ?
I just happened to lock myself out of ssh access on my xen virtual server since I changed the ssh port but forgot to open it in the firewall. No problem, I just access it through VNC in VM manager, I thought, however I have some special chars in my root password and the keymap through VNC seems to have changed somehow. So I cant login as root, nor do su or sudo. I can login as user. I need the sign " but can't figure out how.
Just completed a fresh netinstall of OpenSUSE. This machine previously had a Ubuntu install on it, but I was having all sorts of issues and decided I required a fresh start. The install itself went acceptably, although I ended up manually fixing GRUB.Now the system is running, I've got a ridiculous problem, in that I'm still seeing the old hostname- It used to be ubuntu-server, but should now be unimatrix-001.Checked both the obvious places (/etc/HOSTNAME & YaST), but the correct hostname is in both of them.
Is there some better way of getting my display size set to 1280x960 when I launch openSUSE 11.4 under VMware Server? Here's what I've done so far: I am running Windows 7 on an AMD Phenom II system (motherboard: Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H). I installed VMware Server (version 2.0.2) so that I can run openSUSE 11.4. The initial install went pretty smoothly. However, the display size was set to 800x500. I attempted to set it to 1280x960 by changing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf file as follows:
Code: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf Section "Monitor" Identifier "Default Monitor" ## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the ## defaults here # HorizSync 28-85 # VertRefresh 50-100 HorizSync 1-10000 VertRefresh 1-10000 ## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool Option "PreferredMode" "1280x960_60.00" # 1280x960 59.94 Hz (CVT 1.23M3) hsync: 59.70 kHz; pclk: 101.25 MHz Modeline "1280x960_60.00" 101.25 1280 1360 1488 1696 960 963 967 996 -hsync +vsync
This resulted in a display size of 1734x1342 (or something close to that). I noted from the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file that the vmwlegacy driver is being used instead of the vmware svga driver. There is a note that the vmwlegacy driver does not support the "PreferredMode" setting in the monitor section of the xorg.conf files. For the time being, I have set my horizontal and vertical rates to 60kHz and 60Hz, respectively. This does limit the maximum display size to 1280x960, but for all the wrong reasons. How do I set up my system to get the correct display size?
Trying to clean up my system having removed some factory repos so now I have the standard 4, update, oss, non-oss & packman. When updating and switchine to packman I get many Wrong Digest errors and when downloading many NO KEY messages.
What is the significance of the no key message. How can I renew keys from repo sites and what should I do about the Wrong Digest warnings?
Just installed OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit. I have a program that uses libjpeg, so I installed libjpeg and the dev modules. It has both version 6 and 8 installed. When I run my prog and try to access the lib I get this error: Wrong JPEG library version: library is 80, caller expects 62 This seems a common problem elsewhere. Anyone know how to fix it in 11.3 ?
I am an openSuSE user for many years. My current installation is openSuSE 11.2. However, my first was SuSE 6.4 and I have been _constantly_ upgrading since then until reaching the current openSuSE 11.2. The technical issue I have been facing lately is with the kernel version of my current system: although it should be 188.8.131.52-0.1-desktop, as this is the one I have chosen via the online update mechanism and the yast2 system boot-loader procedure, grub shows it as preselected, the boot procedure in the end greets me mentioning this very kernel version, _but_ when I issue the command: uname -a in a command prompt, I am informed of using linux kernel version: 184.108.40.206-34-default #1 SMP PREEMPT
I am really quite puzzled, since I _cannot_ find any such vmlinuz file under /boot/ ! Could it be that my system properly runs with the expected kernel version, but uname mistakes it with a different one? Is there a way to determine the actual version of the linux kernel that my system currently runs with? If it's a problem with uname, have you got any suggestions that could potentially shed some light towards the origin/cause of the reported issue?
I updated from 11.1 to 11.2. Before some intelligent person says, I should never update but do a new install: a new install isn't better, then I have other problems to tackle. And I really would like updates to work.Well, I have the following problems and I hope you don't mind me listing them all in one post *it's difficult for me to type on this keyboard layout):1. home isn't found or set up. I have modified fstab to mount /dev/sda6, which is home, but it won't mount it at startup, and also not when it's just using the disk/by-id line that had been put in.
2. the keyboard layout is american, while the system language is set to German (I'm German and would like also my keyboard to know that). I had no chance to change that, even a loadkeys de-latin1 doesn't help3. OpenOffice drives me crazy. It just doesn't start properly, or at all. It doesn't open a number of documents, but it doesn't also give any error message. Sometimes soffice.bin is in the list of processes, but OOo is nowhere seen. After killing the process (or terminating it), I can start it, but have only the opening screen and cannot really open a document.4. printing doesn't seem to work, either.Needless to say that everything worked fine before the update
Today I was trying to upgrade mysql and php.PhP went well, thats at the latest version, but the mysql went to 5.5x from REMI. This killed all my websites, no DB and worse.Well I typed the wrong this (totally my fault - serious EPIC FAIL)i typed yum remove mysql not downgrade...This removed plesk and a load of other stuff, and now im screwed.
I've installed UBUNTU on Intel based system afterwards I moved the hard drive to AMD based system (Sempron 3000+)The problem is that the default architecture remains i686. Should it be i386 or amd64 and how could i change it?
is ther any application with which i could draw architecture diagrams for software development. used visio while on windows but now need an alternate for tat, dont need the exact alternative but just for diagrams.
