I have been beating my head against a wall with this for more than an hour.... I purchased a new Ethernet Card to bump up the other side of my network from 10/100 to Gigabit. I previously had a 3c905c 3com card in there before. the chipset I purchased was a realtek 8169 Gigabit..... I removed the old card and put the new one in. Then I ran netconfig but realized that it was holding onto eth0 with 3com's MAC address, so I went and removed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. did a service network restart no eth0 trying to start - perfect... I reran netconfig and configured eth0 with all it settings "Netconfig Did recognise the Realtek 8169"
I saw device not initalized when doing an ifup eth0 So I lsmod and saw the 3com module still running - removed the module rmmod 3com - and checked for 8169 - not running... modprobe 8169 and then checked.. bingo its running... service network restart - same error r8169 device eth0 does not seem to be present... delaying initialization. ok - eff it - ill reboot It came up same thing - did not expect it to change... checked /etc/modprobe.conf - i see its aliased... Verified all things are running... I really don't know where to turn... Im sure I could just call it eth2 but then im going to be rewriting all my iptables "firewall rules" and im trying to avoid that.... ** yes I know I could just use sed to replace all eth0 with eth2 ** but then im not learning why and what i am missing...
Using Debian Lenny. I'm trying to label my usb flash drives. I checked on the Internet and found a page, but I can't get it to work: [URL]. I umounted the usb drive. I checked it with Debian:~# blkid /dev/sda1: UUID="B1CC-3C4F" TYPE="vfat"
But when I try to make a label I get this message: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize '::' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive
If I try mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC when the drive is mounted I get this output: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Total number of sectors (7855032) not a multiple of sectors per track (62)! Add mtools_skip_check=1 to your .mtoolsrc file to skip this test but no label is attached to the drive.
I added this to /etc/mtools.conf: drive p: file=/dev/sdb1 and ran this command: mlabel p:VFAT_DOC and still can't get it to work Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize 'P:' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive
"Unable to initialize audio mixer: No available audio device"
I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).
Trying to install the Suhosin module with the php 5.2.9 c5-testing repo...it won't run with the php 5.2.9 testing build (there isn't an updated suhosin package against the 5.2.9 build)
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: suhosin: Unable to initialize module Module compiled with module API=20050922, debug=0, thread-safety=0 PHP compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=0
What's the best way to handle this from an admin best practices standpoint? I want to do everything possible to keep the suhosin module tracked by yum for future updating etc. Is it best to try to find a suhosin rpm that is built for 5.2.9 and install it with yum localinstall? If not, if I build the module myself, what's the best path to keeping yum/rpm in the loop on this install for future updating via yum?
When I upgraded to CentOS5.2 from 5.1, puplet quit working:
$ sudo /usr/bin/puplet libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. Error: unable to initialize pynotify
I have a fresh install of Jessie, and am having issues with debconf.
I have been trying to change to mdm from the default lightdm display manager. I have downloaded and installed mdm (apt-get install mdm) but when I run dpkg-reconfigure mdm nothing happens. As I understand it, I should get a menu that lets me choose which display manager to use.
I also installed lirc so I could get my IR remote working again, but when I run dpkg-reconfigure lirc nothing happens. I am supposed to get a menu with various options to choose from.
I have tried dpkg-reconfigure debconf and this gives me the menu with different options to choose, like it should when trying dpkg-reconfigure lirc or dpkg-reconfigure mdm. I tried using dpkg-reconfigure debconf to choose different settings, such as gnome, or editor, but they don't work either.
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
Having all kinds of trouble with my video drivers after upgrading to 10.04 The error message I get is
Unable to initialize PCS database Missing PCS default file .etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default No devices I keep reinstalling my video drivers from the ati-driver.run file for my radeon 2400 card - seemingly successfully - but it doesn't seem to help and when I reboot i just get the limited video function
After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:
[15.106386] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IQR 18 [15.106639] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: setting latency timer to 64 [15.139841] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.
This is the error: Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

I want to be able to create a Dialog (similar to the one for Winetricks, run it without parameters to see it) with a checklist that tells my script to go out and download whatever scripts of mine I've selected. I also wish to make a GUI for some of my more complex scripts, such as my Backup script so I can have a nice looking menu instead of a text based one.Does anybody know a good place to learn how to do this, with lots of explanations and breakdowns of each part of the script?
After overcomming a lot of difficulties, my MythTV (Via Epia 10000EG with Hauppauge PVR 500 card) worked with Mythbuntu 9.04. Last year it crashed and I had no time to spare to rebuild it.
Last couple of weeks I had more time and downloaded and tried to install Mythbuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be installed ok, but I get no picture in MythTV when I select "Watch TV" and no picture when I try to record something. When watching TV, the message "Please wait" appears for appr. 5 secs and then the system returns to the menu.
I installed Mythbuntu 10.10 and am using the provided IVTV drivers.
Dmesg and lspci give no errors, every seems to be in order, IVTV drivers are loaded, initialized and errorfree. Cat /dev/video0 gives me static in MPLAYER. The MythTV backendlog doesn't even give a message, the frontend log just says there is no picture...
There seems to be an error between the back and frontend. I checked the settings in capturecards, TV sources, channel edits, etc,etc, but I can't find it.
I know the crontab format and editing is pretty easy, but I always forget the format. So I would like to have a frontend/gui. As far as I can tell a good one doesn't exist anymore.kcron - what I used to use, no longer exists (and I switched to ubuntu from kubuntu)gnome-schedule - does not show all users, does not allow for fine control that kcron had.Does anyone know a good gui/frontend for crontab? I guess I'm just going to have to get in the habit of researching the file syntax, how to edit it, and editing manually.
When I upgraded to 10.10 mythbuntu and after I did a clean install I get the same results. When I select a recording to play it appears the frontend crashes and I end up logged out of the machine. This happens 100% of the time.
When looking for MySQL GUI, I find many applications which provide a frontend to database management.I am looking for a GUI for database entry, rather than database management, approximating Glom or VFront, but Glom is buggy (and development sluggish) and VFront difficult to get set up.Ideally, I would have my own private (GTK, say) data entry tool, which would look much like an HTML form, with labelled fields for the MySQL columns, Previous/Next buttons, saving the current row and moving you up/down to the next one, radio buttons or drop-down menus for columns with limited entries, etc.Of course, [Tab]-navigation and keyboard shortcuts [Ctrl]+[C], etc., should work as well. (Yes, that is very annoying about Glom, for example.)
I am looking for some software which acts as a web proxy with a web frontend. In other words my work web access is filtered and I would like to login to my own web proxy on an apache run server and redirect my traffic. If it has a PHP frontend that would be about right.
I have installed mythbuntu 10.04. It worked well for a few days. Now my frontend does not start or crashes just after booting. You can see the frontend background for a few seconds but the menu does not load. After that, the mythtv window disappears and you can see the ubuntu desktop. Here are the last few lines from the log file:
2010-06-07 07:32:49.622 MythContext: Connecting to backend server: 127.0.0.1:6543 (try 1 of 1) 2010-06-07 07:32:49.623 Using protocol version 56 mount: can't find /dev/sdb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
I want to make a FTP server with web frontend for administering it, eg creating users, groups, setting which directories users can access and so on.I found some web frontends for proFTPd, like those URL... , bus all of them seems to be very old and doesn't work nicely. I tried ProFTP Administrator and it won't work.Do you know some solutions to manage ftp server users, groups, permissions over web? Or by some frontend program.
The thing I like about mplayer is navigation in video at steps of 10s,1m or 10m. There are so many GUI's available yet I have not seen any in which our cursor hovers over slide to see time at that position. Like .....'s flash player allows you to go at any desired time in video.I think if the skin knows the length of video then it can divide length of slide timewise .
I'm configuring a debian computer to act as a router for my home network. I want to split my home network into two parts and define different firewall rules for these parts. I also want to use dhcp to make sure every time a computer logs in it gets the same ip but is still able to log in somewhere else. The biggest problem now is that I have to make some functions able to someone that has never worked with linux before.
I've worked with software routers like pfsense before and I would like a similar web frontend to this. Does anyone know if there is such a piece of software? I'm not using pfsense itself because I don't want to virtualize it and I need some things like the software raid5 and some htpc software I don't want to try to get working on pfsense. I've previously used webmin untill it was hacked because of an exploit in it so I preferably don't want to use that one. I've been working with the dd-wrt software and something like this would do the trick perfectly!
I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"
I set up Ubuntu on an old iBook G4, planning to use it as a front end to my main box. Installed 10.04 no problem, and from there, used Software Center to install MythTV Front end. Have done the same thing on a netbook, no problem.
However, on this PPC Mac, the front end works fine, navigation, menus, etc, until I try to play a recorded programme - the screen is blank, and I just get white noise from the speakers.
(BTW am trying Ubuntu as I don't have a Mac OS new enough to get any of the current Mac MythFrontEnd builds working)
Requirements - 1) Should have options to show only graphical packages.2) Easy to use.Software-center is outdated and packagekit doesn't work well (search for 'winff' with graphical packages filter) with any backend.
