I try to do a upgrade on my fedora 6 ill 10. But when I try to write yum update or yum upgrade on my server a get this error: yum update Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up update process Setting up repositories Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
I keep on getting this red " - " icon on my panel and I try to perform the upgrade it prompts me to do. But it says that there are 3 broken packages i need to fix with the "broken filter". How do I fix this so I can upgrade?
I am trying to dual boot here (Debian and Windows 7).I am trying to setup server here (trying my hands on first time.)I am getting the following error on the screen when i select to boot from Debian (windows boots up normally when selected in grub) I have attached the image,it states:-Radeon kernel modesetting for r600 or later requires firmware-linux-nonfree
I am using the Ubuntu 7.10 Livecd with some modifications I did, and I wanted to update the base-system to the most recent release of Ubuntu. Once I have chrooted into the custom ISO's root filesystem do I use:
Code: apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get dist-upgrade or
Code: aptitude update aptitude upgrade or neither?
I have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?
I'm trying to install a box with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server with a typical LAMP system in order to replace my old Ubuntu 8.04 server I have at my school to have a "backup" system and also trying to replace NIS authentication with LDAP. Well I'm getting stuck on the first step: installation of base system. I want to build a RAID-1 system with the two 320GB SATA HD's the machine has, I have a little experience in installing RAID because I installed my old 8.04 server with RAID-1 aswell. I boot my box from an USB stick with Ubuntu 10.04 Server 64bit, the systems boots well, asks me about language, keyboard and so, finds the two NIC cards and the DHCP configuration of one of the card is done.
Then it starts the partitioner. One of the HD's already contains three partitions with an installation of a regional flavour of Ubuntu, the other HD only contains a partition for backups, I don't want to preserve all this stuff, so the first thing I do is to replace the partition tables of both HD's with a new one. This is done without problems. Then I go to the first disk, by example, and create a new partition, the partitioner ask me for the size, I write 0.5 GB (or 500 MB), then I select that it has to be a Primary partition at the beginning of the disk, all goes OK.
Once created I go to the "Use as: " line, type Enter and select the option "Partition for RAID volume", when I hit Enter the error appears: the screen flickers in black for a second or two, then it shows a progress bar "Starting the partitioner..." That always get stuck at 47%!!! Sometimes the partitioner allows me progress a little further (for ex. lets me activate the boot bit of the partition, or it allows me to make another partiton, even once the error didn't appeared until the first partition of the second HD!!) but it always get stuck with the same progress bar at the 47%.
I've tried a lot of things: I downloaded again the ISO and rebuilt the USB, same result. Downloaded the ISO and rebuilt the USB from another computer, same result. Unplugged all the SATA and IDE drives except the two HD's, same result. Built a CD-ROM instead of an USB, same result. Downloaded the 10.10 server ISO (not an LTS), and the USB stick can't boot, is another error, but only to try.
When the error appears, I hit Ctrl+Alt+F2 and get into a root prompt, there I kill two processes: /bin/partman and /lib...don'tremember/init.d/35... and then when I return to the first console the progress bar has gone and the install process asks me at wich step I want to return, I hit "Partition disk" and then the progress bar reappears and Stucks immediately at 47%!!! Is the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server installer wrong?
I am trying to install the gcc package using Ubuntu 9.10, but fail to do so because of an dependency error, which seems to go in a circle. gcc-4.4-base needs libgcc1 before installation, and vice versa. Downloading the recently updated karmic packages did not help.
I have done a base install with CD#1 and can boot to a prompt and login with root. I cannot use the network. There is no system-config-network program for me to run. There is also no network-manager in chkconfig --list. There is a network item in chkconfig --list and I have turned it on and rebooted to no effect. Googling for base install has found me virtually no information to go on.
My installed version of Open Office on my Centos 5 box, (3.1.1 OOO310m19 Build 9420) did not have the database component installed. No problem I thought and went to System>Add/Remove software and after logging in as root searched for it. All straight forward and simple. But two packages are listed as available. The package detail for both is identical so which one or both should I install? They are:
I have tried 'Googling' for both but none of the information availabe, and there is masses, seems offer any clear suggestions of which way to proceed. The first seems to be a bug release but bearing in mind that the pakage detail is identical to the second I am not so sure.
I downloaded the first Lenny DVD for amd64, wrote it but on trying the install on my laptop (Gateway NV5389u) I cant get past the installing base system step: I get an error that some files are corrupt / cannot be read from the DVD. I am wondering whether there's a way I can download a minimal version or just the files needed for the base system installation then use the same DVD to install the packages, coz I have a terribly slow internet connection it took me a whole 2 days to download, and I surely cant stand any more of it.
I was trying to install Ubuntu on my netbook (doesnt have a cd rom drive)I downloaded the iso, did the pendrive to it. tried rebooting and putting boot priority to the usb (disabling hdd boot). wouldnt pick up the pendrive at all so i reverted back to windows log on.after logging on, installed wubi but i keep getting this problem with installing: Exception: Could not retrieve the required installation files here is the log file that it generates (attached). i dont know how else to install ubuntu
Currently I am having a pc with AMD athlon 64 3000+ and I am thinking to to upgrade this with a 64 X2 4800+ processor.I want to know whether reinstallation of OS (XP sp2 and UBUNTU gutsy) is required for this or they will detect the new processor and work fine without any problem?
I made the MOST basic of errors. I had ubuntu 9 installed on a partition of my netbook HD that was primarily running w7. I was running out of disk space and decided to remove the ubuntu partition as a short term measure - however I didn't change any of my GRUB settings so now I can boot into anything...
In only get a GRUB RESCUE> prompt on trying to boot. From searching the internet I've come to the conclusion that my MBR is F%^ked and need to restore it. I've downloaded ubuntu 10 and can run it from a mem stick, but I cannot get the ms-sys package to install - I keep getting the following error.
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install ms-sys Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package ms-sys ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
Is there another way of removing GRUB completely? Or is there something else that I can try to successfully install ms-sys?
i have been working with fedora for a long time because i was unable to get anjuta 3 working on ubuntu as well as GTK+ 3,facing a huge list of problems after reinstalling it around 3 times and unable to get my new mouse working on GNOME. My question is will anjuta 3.,GTK+ 3.0 as well as all the required packages be able to run/installed on ubuntu?
Completely new to Linux. I have two PC (both with Windows XP SP3) and an HP printer that are networked together with Ethernet cables and a 2Wire gateway. I now would like to install Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.6 on one of the computers and make it a dual-boot machine. The other PC will remain with Windows XP only. During the installation of Debian (5.0.6, 64-bit), I am asked to supply the domain name of the network.
It tells me that I can make up a name but to make sure to use the same domain name on all the computers. I have set up what Windows calls a Workgroup so that the two PCs can have access to each other's files. Would the name that I had assigned to the workgroup in Windows be what Debian is asking me about? The end result is that I want to be able to access Windows files and folders using Debian and vice-versa.
I'm new to linux and that forum, so a (possibly) silly question: I installed couchdb 1.0.1 w/ ymp (one-click) from http://software.opensuse.org/search?...3A11.2&lang=de and when I try to start it like /etc/init.d/couchdb start or sudo -i -u couchdb couchdb I am asked for a pwd, which I never put in. tried several standards or my own already. Didn't find anything in any documentation. Am I doing something wrong here?
I largely believe the name of the program is irrelevant, but if you must know, it is Qjoypad. Anyway, I follow the instructions, but an error is returned "libXtst is required to continue with the installation". Well, I have libXtst6.
I am trying to install Lubuntu on a 2GB USB drive. The (L)ubuntu installer (ubiquity) disables the "forward" button since the minimum space required is 3.6gb, although the Lubuntu installation actually is <2gb.I read somewhere this was a handset value but I haven't been able to find out how to override this?
i have a vaio, with a nvidia geforce 330m. i upgraded from 10.4 to 10.10, using the same driver i had before (256.44, form the nvidia web site) and following the same instructions i found useful the previous time [URL]. my problem: now my login has no graphic interface: i am displayed this error:
Quote: thermal reporting for required devices not enabled, aborting.
and i can log in and use ubuntu only by command line interface, i tried also to make a clean install using a live cd, but nothing changes. have i to go back and use 10.4?
