Ubuntu Installation :: Configuration Errors Appeared?

Recently my beloved ubuntu setup died and I'm struggling to fix it.One day I turned it on and I received the following message:"Your screen graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly'Attempting to continue with the recommended lower graphics settings does not work and I am not sure where to go from here. Sometimes it will advance at the lower graphics setting until an error regarding the configuration defaults for the GNOME power manager that have apparently not been installed properly.I didn't change anything and my windoze partition works well. Running Lucid Lynx with nvidia graphics card and ndiswrapper.Other error messages are:(EE) [drm] failed to open device(EE) Failed to initialise GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)If I reinstall ubuntu will I lose all my programs and data?

Software :: Debian--libx11-dev Installation And Configuration Errors
what the hell the error message shown below and in the attachment means? Apt-get, Aptitude, dpkg and member limiter's 3/21 post all give the same outcome. Do I need to simply remove the offending .deb file from /var/cache/apt/archives? Do I need to install squeeze from scratch? (I'm installing over a tempermental lenny-sid hybrid installation.) This thing is blocking installation and configuration of 28 other packages.

Code: dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libx11-dev_2%3a1.3.3-4_i386.deb (--unpack): short read on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./usr/share/doc/libx11-dev/libX11.txt.gz'

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Fails Every Time - Message To Reboot My Computer Appeared At The End
I recently decided to install ubuntu netbook remix 10.10 to my Toshiba NB200. I was using windows and I wanted to completely erase them. I burned the USB, I followed every single instruction the site had, and even though the installation seemed to work, and a message to reboot my computer appeared at the end, the installation finally fails. When I reboot, the only thing I get is a black screen with an underscore at the top left corner. I tried the installation four to six times and even tried older versions as well but all I get is the black screen.

Fedora Installation :: Grub Did Not Appeared
I have received an ACER Aspire 7720 with Vista and I am trying to install F14. Really I installed it but, when restarting, there were some troubles:
1. Grub did not appeared.
2. Vista decided to loop on start and I could not boot it nor in fail safe mode.So I recovered Vista with an recovery disk, but now I only can start in Vista from HD.

Now I am using a f14 Live CD in order to apply some solutions I have read in the tags but the partitions of Fedora do not appear with fdisk, although I can access them from Live.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Ntfs Partition Appeared Unallocated
[URL] I used testdisk as the replies suggested recovered all my linux partition including my 2 linux distros and boot partitions, but now my windows 7 appeared as unallocated space, which is very ironic, I fixed my last problem only to have situation reversed. I recovered the mbr record from my boot partition, but because that record dose not include the ntfs partition, that partition appears as unallocated space. so how can I make that ntfs partition recognized again so I can update grub and boot to my windows 7 partition? Please help me out, I have had this partition stuck in my computer for a while doing nothing...

Ubuntu Installation :: Strange Line Of Text Appeared On Open Gedit Page On First Use After Upgrade From 10.04 T0 10.10
Strange line of text appeared on open gedit page on first use after upgrade from 10.04 t0 10.10. I was reading something and copypasting the odd bit onto a gedit note: left the room, returned to find blank page except for "nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn". Then I saw that it was just the tail-end of a longer line which had stretched the page width to max, and by deleting backwards I arrived beneath my intact notes. The line was "I[my bolding]nnnnnnnnnn...nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnby v9898". I googled v9898. And there's a v9898. com. It provides something for Windows systems.

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Errors ?
compName:/home/usrName# apt-get update

I don't have this problem when I take this laptop to work and connect to the network there, so I thought it must be a problem with the way my modem/router is configured. But when I turn off the firewall, the problem persists. Actually, I'm not very knowledgeable about networking issues, so I'm not sure I'm turning off the firewall correctly, but in the config web page for my router, I go to firewall settings, pick the computer by name, and choose an option that says "Allow all applications (DMZplus mode)". I've also rebooted the laptop since changing this option and tried again with the same results.

Debian Configuration :: Stuck In Aptitude Limbo - Errors During Updates
It's trying to fix/complete failed installs but keeps encountering the same errors (error message below). I'm running basically Testing, but there are a few Stable and SID packages due to issues with the blasted nVidia legacy drivers. I've swapped out the video board with an ATI board so that is sorted, but now I can't do any updates. Hoping there is some way to manually override apt's determination to try to fix all broken packages whenever I do anything (install, remove, update, etc). A Google search of this error message didn't turn up anything recent. Any thoughts are welcome.

Debian Configuration :: AMD64 - Wrong Architecture Errors Messages

Why I can install amd64 programs and why I get unknown for the uname -p command?

Ubuntu :: Nothing Appeared After Login?
I use ubuntu 10.10 Last night when I use my laptop I hangs and when I shut it down the last thing I see is there's a not responding app called at-spi register (or at-sys or something I don't really remember) and the next time I log in to my account there's only login sound heard and the wallpaper I set before, and the mouse cursor. There's nothing else. No nautilus, no panels, nothing. Nothing happened when I press alt-f2, ctrl alt L, etc. There's even nothing happened when I press the power button (unless if I press it a long time it will shut down). the only thing I can do (that I know) is press ctrl-alt f1 & ctrl-alt-f7 to change to tty. And only through tty and recovery mode I can access my account. I decide to create new account using adduser and I can login into the new account successfully. but then again in my new account I can't access all the data from my original account. and I can't use root or sudo command in my new account.

I've tried to reset gnome and nautilus using rm -rf but apparently nothing appeared but login sound, wallpaper (that change to default ubuntu maverick wallpaper), and a mouse cursor that can't do anything.

OpenSUSE :: Errors Trying To Use Zypper (from Console) - GConf Error: Failed To Contact Configuration Server
i been getting errors when trying to use zypper from the console. This happens in 2 pcs, and errors seem to be the same,One has 11.4 + gnome 2, standar installation (with gnome) from 11.4 DVD. The error i get whenever i run something like zypper install xxxyyy.rpm or zypper update is:

GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)

the other one, 11.4 with gnome 3 (clean install from live dvd):

GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: The connection is closed)

I dont know if its related, but the one with gnome 3 constantly gives me (what i think is) a kernel panic when i shut down the system, it happens fast and the text on the screen is not "linear" but spread all over the screen, so i cant read the whole message, but it does say something about glib and corruption.This is actually the first time(s) ibe seen a kernel panic ever since i used ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Home/mark/Desktop Appeared And Icons Gone?
A new directory (Desktop with uppercase D) appeared in my /home/mark dir and my icons disappeared. Upon further looking, I see there are 2 directory's in my home, one called desktop (all lower case,) the other is Desktop with uppercase D. I copied the stuff from desktop to Desktop and my icons are back. Where is this information kept so I can fix it back. I guess I need to tell Linux to use desktop, but I don't know where that is.

Fedora :: After Rebooting The Old Module Appeared Again?
About 2 weeks ago i installed ubuntu 10.10 and downloaded fresh network drivers. I ran, the module was compiled and installed, i could see it with lsmod. But after rebooting the old module appeared again, but no file for him were in modules directory because removed old module file. Some time passed and I figured out that it is initrd who is guilty. I couldn't check it because i already deleted ubuntu and installed Fedora 14 Beta. Today i tried to repeat my steps and installed new network module on Fedora. But when i rebooted and started again i was surprised - new module works instead my old one. Everything is fine So, my question, does Fedora use initrd? I saw some files in /boot that which are initrd files (as i think). Or may be not every fedora system uses initrd or something else?

Debian Configuration :: USB Errors "usb 1-5: Device Descriptor Read/64, Error -110"
While I had the case open to swap out a network card I thought I would drop in an old USB card (previously used with no problems on a machine running Debian) however on boot I'm now getting some errors showing up. The card has been sitting around for a while so it could be an issue with the card.
