I had a dual boot Kubuntu 9.04 - FC 11 and decided to upgrade to Kubuntu 9.10. Recalling that I had issues with my ATI card drivers when I installed Kubuntu8.10 on my laptop, I decided to install the latest ATI Catalyst drivers. After the installation was complete I received a message warning me that if the X server fails to load I should run "aticonfig --initial -f". Indeed the X Server didn't load (after I logged in the screen flushed and went black). So I reinstalled Kubuntu 8.10 from a CD I without formating the respective partition. But the problem perists, X server fails to load. Even worse my menu.lst file has been changed and I can't boot FC11.
I have 2 servers that are mirrored. They host 3 separate websites. Two of these websites are regular HTTP and the other is HTTPS with Digest authentication as well. The reason there are 2 servers is because one is a primary and the other secondary in case the primary goes down. Recently I decided to upgrade the secondary server then make it the primary server. I have done most of the configuration and the sites using regular HTTP are working perfectly fine. The page using SSL is not. Apache fails to load and here are the errors I am receiving the the error log file:
Code: [Fri Aug 13 09:27:00 2010] [warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `newserver.domain.com' does NOT match server name!? [Fri Aug 13 09:27:00 2010] [error] Unable to configure RSA server private key [Fri Aug 13 09:27:00 2010] [error] SSL Library Error: 185073780 error:0B080074:x509 certificate routines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch
For the first warning, I cannot find anywhere that says the CN "newserver.domain.com", only what the CN is in the SSL key. I have no idea where to even start with the other errors.
I am running a server that is mostly headless, but does run the Gnome environment (I have ubuntu-desktop installed). I usually administer it via VNC over SSH. My problem is that when I reboot the system over SSH, the system fails to fully load the GUI, which prevents me from connecting via VNC (although SSH still works).
When I connected a monitor and rebooted, the system booted up fine. It appears that the GUI will not load without an attached monitor, which never happened before in previous Ubuntu versions. I do use many commands but prefer a GUI for certain tasks and visualization of my work since my system has the resources to spare. Running Lucid Lynx
I'm trying to install ubuntu on a laptop (Acer Aspire 6530), and duel boot with windows vista. However, when starting up the computer with the CD in the drive, the installer fails to load, showing only a picture at the bottom of the screen showing a square and a circle with a person in it... This persists for as long as I have cared to wait (hours) and pressing keys at first results in nothing, then after sufficient key presses just produces beeps...
I previously had Ubuntu 9.x and Windows 7 installed at my laptop after I decided to upgrade Ubuntu to 10.04.
After the upgrade finished, now at the boot selection menu I am able to select Windows 7, but after it starts it tries to fix some errors and says that it's unable to load. Ubuntu 10.04 loads just fine.
I currently have a Dell Dimension 4100 from 2000 upgraded with an Nvidia Geforce 6200 video card and 160 gig hard drive, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04 and once I restart, I hear a beep come out from my computer speaker, and then displays the following text:
Code: GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3 Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word,TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
grub> I'm not used to typing in command line, but if anybody has a way around it for me, I'll be pleased. It's Ubuntu or Windows goes back on... or bust.
I had a 10.04 Wubi install on my Win7 notebook. I selected the option to upgrade to 10.10 from update manager. It downloaded all the updates, but reported that due to some problem, only a partial upgrade will be possible. I agreed. And now, when I select Ubuntu from the startup OS list, it just shows a blank screen and restarts within 3-5 seconds. What do I do??
I was trying to install fedora 10 onto my new computer, with the full dvd. my new computer has 2G ram, Radeon 4670 and a Gigabyte motherboard. after i started up the installation, while it saying "loading anacoda...." the line" X window fail to load. Back to text mode." So should i continue with the installation? because i fear that after i installed the fedora 10 onto my computer, i have to use it in text mode
I am trying to clean install Jessie 8.3.0 onto an old PC, where I already have wheezy 7.7 working. I am using the 3 DVD- i386, which passed the integrity check.
Installation goes on smoothly till completing the "Select and Install SW" stage from 1st and 2nd DVD. At this point I get the warning that "Installation step failed, ..", giving the choice to repeat.
When repeated, the process gets completed (without asking for 2nd DVD), the new installation boots normally, but the KDE desktop opens irregularly, with some basic applications missing, and some flaws during certain operations.
The APT does not show any missing/broken link. I tried and repeat the installation with different choices as for kernels and/or desktops, but got the same result. I cannot guess where the problem originates, nor whether it is a known bug of the installer.
I downloaded the Fedora Live USB creator and the program consistently fails to load properly onto the flash drive. I have also downloaded the DVD iso program from this site and get only errors when trying to boot with an ISO burner? I am attempting to load the program on Sun Virtual Box, which is like VMare's Workstation, and the prompt consistently reads error when attempting to install. Also the progress bar on the Live USB loader never stops even after it the cmd prompt says it is complete.
I reinstalled fedora the other day, and it's been working just fine, apart from the internet. It shows that I have a full connection with the wireless network, but it's really difficult to actually load a page. 80% of the time it just fails and shows "Page Load Error". It's really frustrating because it is connected to the internet. In fact, the icon in the address bar even loads from the site I try to access, but websites just will not load.
I've tested my wireless internet with another laptop which is running vista, and it works perfectly on that. Also, I'm running Fedora 10 on an Acer Extensa laptop.
just built a computer and wanted to try out some linux.
First off I burned the Fedora 10 x86_64 disk image (using disk utility on my mac at 4x speed then verified it) to a dvd. I start the install. "x startup fails to load, falling back to text mode" comes up. I use the text install then. It gets to the actual installation of the different packages then a black screen shows up with white text that's highlighted red (sometimes it's blue). It then freezes and I reboot. Sometimes it freezes at different points and with different messages, but the description above is what happens most often.
I try writing it at 1x speed and verifying. same thing.I try the Live CD. It freezes.Then I tried Fedora 9. same thing.
Next I go to Ubuntu 8.10.I try the regular install, but the orange loading bar freezes.I try the Live CD-like install. It runs!...but when i go to install, when it gets to the partitioning part, it freezes and becomes unresponsive.
Each time it froze I let it sit for about 10 minutes, just to make sure it is in fact frozen. I've tried these installs numerous times.
Here I was, humming happily along on my Ubuntu 10.10 machine, when thanks to a stupid Windows proprietary task that I NEEDED to perform, I rebooted in Windows later this morning. When I was done with the task, I tried to reboot again back in Ubuntu, but lo & behold, it wouldn't start. I tried several times, I tried recovery mode, I tried previous versions, and NADA! It's as if the kernel only existed in name only. So now I don't know what to do, because I cannot access my Ubuntu files from Windows (which luckily still works), plus I cannot abide the idea of having to give up on Ubuntu for good and going back to Windows! I'm willing to reinstall the whole thing again, so I've downloaded a new .iso image to create a new install CD, but I cannot seem to successfully create the new CD image either. I'm tempted to download Wubi, but I'm not sure if that's a permanent solution either.
I use Compiz, on Ubuntu 10.04, and notice that Emerald sometimes fails to load at login, leaving all apps window-less, and I have to do an Alt+F2 and "emerald --replace" to bring it back..Any ideas what can cause this? I like to keep my UI looking nice, and that's why I use those utilieis, they run fast on my setup
just installed ubuntu 10.4 and almost all websites load properly except facebook. the problem is persistent with all browsers: opera, firefox, chrome. if i use the same programs with windows 7, facebook loads properly. basically, the log in page comes up....howerver, once i sign on only the very top blue bar loads. videos works perfectly - i have flash installed correctly. i've never had this problem on ubuntu before. thinking there was something wrong with ubuntu 10.4 i installed 10.10. the problem still persists. also, i can not load facebook with jolicloud. i have an asus 64 bit laptop.
After an almost flawless upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10, the desktop doesn't quite finish loading: when I log in I am left with unmovable but otherwise usable windows chiefly noticeable by their lack of title bar. I can kick the system into completing a normal startup by right clicking on the desktop and selecting "visual effects/normal" whereupon it pops up with "desktop effects not available" and subsequently the title bars all return and everything works as normal - even compositing (meta city). Something appears to be choking it at the last hurdle. How I might go about debugging it. Failing that, what do I need to purge/reinstall to make it work normally?
I recently installed Fedora 12 on my Toshiba Tecra laptop. It worked fine for a few days, then I uninstalled xscreensaver because I use gnome screensaver. When I rebooted, the system hung at the splash screen. I booted to the command line and did a Code:yum install xscreensaverand rebooted. However, X failed to load again. I have attached my complete Xorg.0.log as a "doc" file. Here is the some output that may be relevant:
Code: (II) Cannot locate a core pointer device. (II) Cannot locate a core keyboard device.
I am unable to load the GUI in opensuse 11.1. When booting I get the normal opensuse loading screen but about half way through the screen goes black. If I hit alt-f1 I can see the start up info. The problems looks like when it tries to load gdm. It shows a couple of Warnings saying "GdmDisplay: display lasted .8135.. seconds. The findal warning says "GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors." I did do a couple of updates yesterday before shutting down but am not sure what they were.
I've been playing with some intel server board and they provide a type of fakeraid which is called Embedded Server Raid Technology 2. Since Intel officially support RHEL and SLES on their servers, they provide drivers/modules for this fake raid (which supports raid 0, 1, 5 and 10). I have installed RHEL before on these severs and redhat's installer has the ability to load additional modules (via a boot command linux dd).
While intel doesn't provide the modules for other operating systems, they provide a library where people can build their own module for their kernel. I managed to build this module called 'megasr' (for now I've built it for kernel 2.6.32-24-generic which is my testbed at the moment but I would eventually build it for box i386 and amd64 for both server and desktop versions) and load it on a system which is installed on a single drive.
We are able to load it successfully and see the raid 5 as a single volume and access it (partition, format and copy data to it) and all its functions (work in degraded mode, rebuild, etc) work fine but my main goal is to actually install such volume as my main boot volume (similar to how its possible with RHEL or SLES). Is this possible? Load additional modules during the installation that will be present after the installation is finished?
I have two computers running Kubuntu 9.10 (using the upgrade paths from 8.04 and so on) one running 32bit and the other running 64 bit and I have the following problem: On the 32bit version installing the repository package for Digikam, everything works just fine. On the 64bit version I have two problems:
First digikam won't start due to the following error:
digikam: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/kde4/digikamimageplugin_freerotation.so: undefined symbol: _ZN7Digikam11ImagePlugin17setActionCategoryERK7QSt ring
I'll have to delete all digikamplugin files from /usr/lib/kde4 and then it works from the command line. It appears that everything is working as it should.Second, starting digikam from Lancelot does nothing.
just installed ubuntu 9.10 besides the existing windows vista partition. Everything worked smoothly. However, after I let vista go into hibernation and then started up the system again, the grub was unable to load. Instead, I got the command prompt 'GRUB rescue'. When I boot from the live CD and try to open the ubuntu partition on 'places' in the desktop environment, I get the message that it cannot be done because windows has hibernated on the other partition, and that I need to delete the hibernation file. What do I do to get the GRUB to load? Now I am stuck with booting from the CD, and I cannot access Vista at all.
i downloaded Ubuntu server from here, choosing 32-bit:[URL].. i burned the image to a CD. i booted it, and tried to install it. i went through a bunch of screens before it started to install. after a while i got an error message that reads: "Please insert the disc labeled: 'Ubuntu-Server 10.04.1 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release i386 (20100816.2)' in the drive /cdrom/ and press enter."
i don't understand this message. when i downloaded Server there was no message to save a second file for a second CD.

I recently brought home an old Compaq server from work. I was told that it works fine. When I brought it home, I tried installing Ubuntu 9.10 server from a cd. While it's trying to install, I get the message "Installation step failed. An installation step failed. You can try to run the following item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step is: Load installer components from CD." I turned off the computer and tried it again several times. Each time the same message appears.
