Fedora Installation :: Error While Trying To Install Vmware Tools - 11

Oct 22, 2009

I have Vmware Fusion 2.0.6 (196839) running on my MacBook Pro. I installed Fedora 11 on the fusion and it works fine. The only problem that I am having is that when I try to install vmware tools, by runnning ./ in the terminal, I am prompted with this message: What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

If I press Enter, the same message pops up. I am fairly new to linux, and I am just setting this up so I can set up a web server on this virtual machine for testing purposes.

the kernel that I have running is:

root@box1 include# uname -r

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install Initramfs-tools Error In Karmic

Jan 22, 2010

unable to install initramfs-tools error in Karmic I'm having a devilish time installing Karmic on my AMD 64-bit.

Today's missive is:
"Unable to install initramfs-tools."
"Check /var/log/syslog"

After a trying to fix a corrupted 9.04, I have attempted repeated installs of 9.10 on a completely reformatted clean drive. I can get the live CD working, but when I try the permanent install, using the guided full drive install, it stopped at "Unable to install initramfs-tools." and halts the base system install. I can't find anything on this for Karmic and Launchpad says it was superseded.

Can I skip this and go on? It showed a install list going forward, but if I can't put in the base system, how do I proceed? I've burned 2 9.10 disks, a new 9.04 disk, downloaded 9.10 via package manager while in Live CD and get errors on all during the install process. the check sums match on D/L, but I can't figure how to do a chksum after it's burned to disk. The file sizes do match, but when I go for the install something always halts it at different steps with different errors. No joy.

Debian Multimedia :: K3b Is Disappearing Tools

Jul 6, 2011

I was experiencing some latency issues when loading KDE on my (squeeze) HTPC box, so I decided to replace the system drive with one that was a bit faster (and larger). Faced with the unpleasantness of having to repeat the many troubleshooting and configuration issues I had with the previous installation, I decided to copy a known good installation. As it turned out it didn't make much difference. I still spent several hours reconfiguring screen and font resolutions, setting up a wireless bridge, removing unnecessary server components, reconfiguring apt proxy settings, resetting hostname and IP addresses, and getting passthrough audio working again.

Anway, once completed, the system was much more responsive, so I was happy--until I tried to burn an ISO to the DVD. When K3b loads it informs me that it is missing several necessary applications, including cdrecord, cdrdao, mkisofs, etc. All the necessary applications were installed and working on the original system which I copied. I verified their existence on the new installation via "aptitude search <packagename>". I even performed a reinstall of said packages. Nevertheless, K3b refuses to detect their existence.Just to be clear, all my boxen are built to standard. Same motherboard, same CPU, same memory, same HDDs, same DVD burners. I do this purposely to avoid just these sorts of issues. I don't see how a working configuration on one machine can fail on another. I am beginning to believe that this is yet more evidence to support my theory that the universe is not only unpredictable, but arbitrary and inconsistent and possibly even perverse.

Debian :: Dpkg Shows Installed Pkg Is Uninstalled?

Aug 8, 2010

I have downloaded a Non-free Deb pkg, when I tried to install it using "# dpkg -i pkgname", it appeared to install as expected. The pkg exists, I found the new directory and the executable file, but if I try to run it I get kicked out of my session, and back to GDM.

When I run "# dpkg -l pkgname", immediately after the install, I get this: "un pkgname <none> (no description available)"

Since it is not installed I can not remove it, or reconfigure it.

I run Debian Testing with Openbox as my window manager.

Debian :: Missing Packages - No Wireless Internet Tools

Debian :: Gnome System Administration Tools Fail To Open?

Jul 29, 2010

Most of my gnome system administration tools are (suddenly) failing to open. The system is a new installation with both KDE and gnome, and the gnome system admin tools were working fine, but now they fail silently (nothing even in .xsession-errors). For instance, if I select Synaptic Package manager from the menu, I will get the gksu prompt to enter my administrative password, which I do. Then a notification will appear in the Taskbar "Granting Rights" and then after that nothing happens, it just fails silently. Note that this also happens if I enter 'gksu synaptic' or 'gksu /usr/sbin/synaptic' at the alt-F2 command line. Note that it doesn't seem to matter whether I check "Save Password for Session" or not. The same happens for time-admin, users-admin, etc. I have tried reinstalling gnome-system-tools, system-tools-backends, and gnome-keyring with no effect. I have googled extensively and have found a few other people with this same problem, but no solutions. Note also that kdesu does still work fine, and there doesn't seem to be any such problems in KDE in general. Only in gnome and with gksu.

P.S. Let me know if you need any more info (output from commands, files, etc).

Debian Configuration :: Using Kdump-tools For A Forced / Staged Panic

Apr 23, 2016

I'm having some issues creating output from kdump-tools. (Initially to diagnose some system freezes when using wine, but now I can't a staged panic to work and provide proper output.)

I initially started following what is stated at this link: ... ian-jessie

Where basically the author says:

Code: Select allapt-get install kdump-tools crash kexec-tools makedumpfile `uname -r`-dbg

to get all relevant tools.

Then in /etc/default/kdump-tools edit the following to :

Code: Select allUSE_KDUMP=1

in /etc/default/grub I edit the following line to the following :

Code: Select allGRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet crashkernel=128M"

followed by update-grub. Then I get the pleasure of rebooting.

once I'm back in my system, I do the following.

Code: Select allecho 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

The system freezes, but does not dump any relevant information or reboot. It just hangs.

Debian Multimedia :: Tools To Produce A Narrated Animated Video?

May 4, 2011

I want to record narration for a video, then look at the timeline of the narration so I can generate animation that is more or less in sync with it. I don't need to be accurate enough to match lip movement. I can generate the video frames with POVray, and I can make a movie out of the frames with ffmpeg. I have a microphone which plugs into my sound card, but I don't know how to record my voice, nor how to determine the time used at different points in the narration, nor how to add the audio to the video to produce a narrated movie. My OS is Debian Linux running Gnome.

Debian Hardware :: Getting HPE Library And Tape Tools To Recognize Tape Drive

Apr 3, 2016

I have been using an LTO-5 Ultrium-3000 tape drive connected to an ATTO HBA without problem. I can control the tape drive using "mt -f /dev/nst0" and have been able to make successful backups using cpio, tar, and dump/restore. I followed some instructions on the web about how to install the HPE Library and Tape Tools application (version 4.21) which relies on conversion of a rpm to a deb file. The software seems to have been installed correctly and runs. However the hardware scan function does not recognize my tape drive. The following is suggested in the user manual if the tape device is not recognized by the software under Linux:

1. Login as root.
2. Edit the following file:
vi /etc/modules.conf
3. Add the following line as appropriate:
add options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=128
4. Reboot the computer.

The problem is I don't have an /etc/modules.conf and am not sure exactly which file would be equivalent? If this is even the correct solution.

My tape drive is controllable and functions well using "mt -f /dev/nst0 status" so it seems to be a matter of LT&T software to detect the tape drive.

At the risk of providing too much info here some, possibly relevant, output from lshw
