Ubuntu Servers :: 11.04 Nouveau Errors After Installing?

May 21, 2011

Just installed ubuntu server 11.04 to have a play with. Ran through the installer and selected to setup as a virtual machine host. When booting I get 3 errors

[ 7.847619] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D ===
[ 7.847624] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D ===
[ 8.651603] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: unknown connector type: 0xff!! ===
Any insignt into what may be causing this would be well appreciated.

It may be also worth noting that I dont see the grub screen. My monitor reports "out of range" I also did have ubuntu server 10.10 on here previously which installed without issue. (It wasnt actually being used for anything) I'm currently trying a reinstall hoping the errors will go away but any info would be much appreciated.

Ubuntu :: Downloaded ISO File - Errors While Installing

Mar 28, 2010

I have been having problems with Ubuntu. I just downloaded it yesterday and burned it to CD. However, when attempting to install it, I get errors. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the exact error but it stops the install. I will give further information later but wanted to ask if anyone has heard of this happening and if so, what the problems might be? I checked it with the MD5 and it appears to be a valid file, but the disk is giving me errors!

Software :: Installing Mimio 32 Bit On 64 Bit Ubuntu / LIBCXX Errors?

Mar 2, 2011

I'm trying to install 32 bit mimio software for an interactive whiteboard onto a 64 bit laptop running ubuntu.

I've used getlibs to install some of the missing libraries but am still having truoble with the install.

The output is as follows:


sudo dpkg -i --force-all mimio-studio_7.11-2_i386.deb
dpkg - warning, overriding problem because --force enabled:
package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
(Reading database ... 232300 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace mimio-studio 7.11-2 (using mimio-studio_7.11-2_i386.deb) ...

I'm a bit stumped about the GLIBCXX errors .... I have libstdc++ but I reckon i need some symbolic links or something .. I need to get pointed in the right direction. glibc is installed but I don't know what glibcxx is.

Fedora :: Errors Installing PartImage 0.6.9 On 14

Jan 28, 2011

On a previous thread, I explained how I installed Fedora 14 from the live image disk onto a HP 2140 netbook only to find I was missing the development files. Stoat helped me use the more complete install DVD from Fedora 14 to install the development tools (rather than doing a complete reinstall -- which I would do if it made this work).

Unfortunately, I'm still unable to make PartImage 0.6.9 install. When I try, configure says that the bzip2 library (libbz2) is not found or too old. Apparently, this is because it can't get it to respond to BX2_bzopen from within the library. I think because it can't find the library. Inside the config.log file it seems to indicate that from an -lbz2 not found. Now I'm guessing that there is some trick to this, maybe some way of setting the library path to include the location of this and possibly other libraries under Fedora 14. I've checked the library's location and it seems to be in /lib as far as I can tell and bz2 does work, so it's somewhere. Of course it's possible since PartImage is pre-version 1 but doesn't have much if any activity on its forum that something has changed position in Fedora and the install isn't looking for it in the right place.

I've seen one blurb in the PartImage files that indicates that maybe using env to set environment variables on entrance to configure might work, but I'm not sure what variable to set or how to make it find the bz2 library. Note that I've been a UNIX user and administrator in the past, but that was in the System 7 days so that's rusty and I have no prior experience with LINUX of any kind.

Ubuntu Installation :: Compile Errors Installing VMWare Workstation 7.1.0

Aug 19, 2011

I have played around with Fedora for a few years and recently switched to Ubuntu. I am installing VMWare Workstation version 7.1.0 from a retail packaged CD. When I attempt to install VMWare Workstation and VMWare Player I get the following error:

Aug 15 16:24:54.826: app-3078788800| Your GCC version: 4.5
Aug 15 16:24:54.837: app-3078788800| Your GCC version: 4.5

Aug 15 16:24:56.163: app-3078788800| Failed to compile module vmmon!

I tried installing the patch for kernal 2.6.38-8 found here - [URL] - but it did not resolve the issue. Is there a patch for kernal 2.6.38-10?

I also found this posting for the same problem: [URL]. I followed the following instructions as advised in the post . . .
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install make
sudo apt-get install gcc

Then enter:
uname -r

My kernel was: 2.6.38-10-generic
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-2.6.38-10-generic
Now run the vmware-install.pl script.

Everything ran without error. However, I continue to get the same error. Another post suggested uninstalliung and reinstalling the software, but this had no affect either. Another post suggested that after running the above update to them run the /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl script. However I do not seem to have the vmware-config.pl in my /usr/bin directory. I checked the various VMWARE directories in /etc and the /tmp/vmware-root directories but no vmware-config.pl

Debian Installation :: Errors While Installing 3.2.66-grsec Linux-image

Feb 22, 2015

Debian Wheezy upgraded to Jessie. I can't install my grsec kernel. I did everything exactly like they say on website: [URL] ....

patching: grsecurity-3.0-3.2.66-201502180830.patch and linux-3.2.66 -o.k
then ''make menuconfig'': Configuration Method - Automatic (for virtualbox hosting) -o.k
compiling the kernel: 'fakeroot make deb-pkg' -o.k
and last step, installing new kernel : ''dpkg -i *.deb'' -not o.k

Below is the output from executing command : dpkg -i *.deb which supposed to install 3.2.66-grsec linux-image:

root@debian:/home/userone/Downloads/grsecurity.net/1# ls

[Code] ....

After restarting, old kernel is booting, however from booting menu under advanced GNU/Linux options i can choice 3.2.66-grsec linux-image to boot, unfortunately it 'panics' (kernel panic - not syncing: grsec: halting the system due to suspicious kernel crash caused by root) and only way to turn off the computer is to hold down power button.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing "xorg-dev" Package - Errors ?

I need to install "xorg-dev" package as a prerequisite for one program but when I try

sudo apt-get install xorg-dev it gives me the following errors


Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed.

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

General :: Installing To A Wiped Hard Drive / "unable To Read" Errors?

May 14, 2010

I recently got a computer donated to me for free from my Computer Science class, as the teacher couldn't figure out what the problem was that was preventing him from booting to the startup screen (all I could figure out was that the slot the memory card was in was bad, so I switched slots and got it working). The hard drive on the computer was wiped with a disk nuker called DBAN. Now I would like to install a Linux OS on the computer, but whatever disc or distro I try gives me similar "unable to read" errors. I would like to know if there's anything software-wise I need to do before attempting to replace any hardware. An example of the error I'm getting is as follows (using a mandriva livecd):

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 1281: /var/log/dmesy: Read-only file system
SQUASHFS error: sb_bread failed reading block 0xa6e58
SQUASHFS error: unable to read cache block [29b963ea:782]
SQUASHFS error: unable to read directory block [29b963ea:782]

Anyone know what I need to do to get this fixed so that I can install a Linux distro?
