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 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 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..
Installed 6.01a from DVD 1 on a system with 4GB ram. Installer installed amd64 version by default. When I try to install amd64.deb files I get "wrong architecture" error messages from the package manager. root@Laptop-RalphDeb:/home/ralphq# uname -r 2.6.32-5-amd64 root@Laptop-RalphDeb:/home/ralphq# uname -p unknown Why I can install amd64 programs and why I get unknown for the uname -p command?
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.
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].
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'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".
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>.
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?
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.
