Fedora :: After Installing F13 LXDE Live: Unable To Login?

May 28, 2010

After installing from the LXDE live CD I am unable to login. I type in my username, and then my password, and then the prompt goes back to the username (in other words, nothing happens). I can however login via the virtual terminals.

Could this be an issue with the live cd? Or was it just a bad install?

Fedora :: 15 LXDE - Unable To Get Package Manager?

May 26, 2011

I tried installing Fedora 15 Gnome on my 8 year old laptop, but it didn't work so well since Gnome 3 couldn't start due to my graphics adapter (although it worked fine in Fedora 14), so I tried installing Fedora 15 LXDE and had much better results. Any way, after running yum update, I tried to install Google Chrome since I prefer it over FireFox, but I noticed that I didn't have the opton to automatically install it with a package manager, only download it. Once downloaded, I tried to open it via the GUI and it brought up a screen asking me what application I wanted to use to open the rpm. It didn't even know how to install a rpm!! I then tried to install it via the command line, but it failed because the package was dependent on others. After looking around in the Administration menu, there does not seem to be any package manager installed. How can this be? I've used many different versions of Linux before, but none that didn't have a package manager or didn't know how to install it's own native binaries. I don't get it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Access Internet Installing From Live USB

Nov 6, 2010

Installing from Live USB: Installing from USB on my desktop (used this method for laptop install) goes without a hitch. EXCEPT, I notice there is no support for my wireless card chipset (Atheros 7413, used /bin/lspci to find). I download the drivers for Linux, but I need Make to build the drivers...ok. I download the Make files from my laptop, make coffee, slap the makefiles onto a flash drive and run the configure file on my desktop version of SUSE. Whoops, need a c compiler (odd that openSUSE did not come with gcc? bit confused on that). If you can't tell by now, I've been using linux for less than a month so I am what you would call a noob? After the lack of c compiler, I drove to my office to snag some DVDs to download the DVD iso image, hoping it would have some form of c compiler/make packaged, since the description does say the DVD has more software (can't find any prebuilt versions of either...?)

Installing from DVD: This was my next step. I wrote the iso image to a DVD and proceeded to boot from DVD. The installer fails at the system analysis, saying it cannot "create a repository". writing the iso to a second DVD produces the same result. Googling has not yielded a solution. tl;dr can't use openSUSE on my desktop because my wireless chipset is not suported by SUSE. I need Make to build the drivers, but I need a c compiler to compile Make, and I need the internet to get both for my machine.

Ubuntu :: Installing From 11.04 Live Cd - Unable To Stat The Mount Point

Jul 1, 2011

I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a desktop and am trying to install ndiswrapper. I don't have a wired connection to the router, but I have managed to use ndiswrapper successfully on other Linux live distributions which already had them installed (eg, Linux Mint 9). By inserting the Ubuntu 11.04 Live Cd and adding the cdrom in Synaptic's "Settings > Repositories" menu, I can find it in the list of packages, but when I try to install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 and ndiswrapper-common I get a few error messages. First, a notice pops up saying: "Some of the packages could not be retrieved from the server(s). Do you want to continue, ignoring these packages?". I guessed this is due to lack of an internet connection, so I selected "yes" and got an error box that reads:

"E: Internal Error, No file name for ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 W: Failed to fetch cdrom:[Ubuntu 11.04_Natty Narwhal_-Release i386 (20110427.1)]/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.56+r2729-1_i386.deb
Unable to stat the mount point /media/Ubuntu4011.0440i386/ - stat (2: No such file or directory)"

This system has two hard drives and a cdrom drive. I've error checked the Live cd, and it came up clean. Please, can someone give me a hand getting Ubuntu to mount the cd? PS: I've downloaded the ndiswrapper files from sourceforge onto a thumbstick (version 1.56). Is there a way I can install them from the stick?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Login Via Main GUI After Installing NX

Jul 18, 2011

First time poster, and a first time convert to using linux, have mainly been a Windows man but as a software dev beginning to broaden horizons using linux (and Eclipse is real fast in ubuntu!!) Anyway, my problem:
1. I have installed NX as per this form post: [URL]
2. I can log in via the tty consoles on the actual machine, and can still log in via the NX console (into a kubuntu environment), however, I am unable to log in to gnome or kubuntu via the main logon gui on the actual computer.
When I do attempt to logon to gnome/kubuntu the screen flickers and I return back to the main logon GUI.
3. I have since reverted the port 55555 changes to port 22 in /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg and /etc/ssh/sshd_config - I can still NX onto the box, but point 2 is still a problem.
Why I can't login via the main GUI?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade To 11.3 From LXDE Live CD?

Aug 14, 2010

I was using 11.2 quite happily, decided to install 11.3 via the LXDE live CD. Everything seems fine for the moment, apart from the fact that I can't seem to delete the LiveCD user, even when logged in as my own account. Even logging in to a terminal from my own log-in seems to result in a whoami output of linux (the liveCD user).

OpenSUSE Install :: LXDE Live Cd And Can't Boot

Aug 25, 2010

I installed lxde from a live cd and can't boot into anything. At first, when I rebooted, the computer went to grub>, so I used grub commands to find the grub menu lst. It was in (hd0,5). So I made that the root and grub said it was successful. I rebooted, now I get error 25. Was I supposed to enable one of the boot options in the setup? The setup showed two boot options, MBR and root (I think), both disabled. I just clicked continue. Did I mess up the install setup?

Debian Configuration :: Using Live LXDE Wireless WDA-1320?

Sep 11, 2011

I do recall being able to at least figure out Debian enough that I got my wireless working (a few years back). Today I popped in a fresh Live LXDE DVD. I can't find that my wireless is recognized, nor can I find any graphical network management utilities. Nothing network related. Perhaps its all in the command line, but I'm not too familiar with it (though I'm not averse to following instructions if I can use that to simply fix this issue).

I did look at documentation first. To the best of my ability anyway. I could not use it to help myself. Once I get internet working, at least I can trouble shoot on the Debian installation itself, which makes the process much easier. Having to switch out to a Windows installation is a pain.

Fedora Installation :: If Installing From The Live CD - Must Have At Least Two Partitions Available ?

Jun 10, 2009

Due to a combination of factors, if installing from the Live CD, you must have at least two partitions available. One will be a small (around 200 MB) /boot partition. The / (root filesystem) partition must be formatted as ext4 while the /boot partition must be formatted as ext2 or ext3.

The normal installation CD set and DVDs don't have this issue.

If you choose to install the Live CD and don't follow this scheme (you can, of course, have additional partitions besides /boot and /), the LiveCD won't install.

Fedora Installation :: Trouble Installing Via Live CD

Sep 12, 2009

I boot it up using the live cd then try to install it to my hard drive. I want to dual boot Vista and Fedora, so I've created another partition.However I'm having trouble whilst installing. When I get to the stage to select where I want to install it I choose the "Custom" choice. It is then also obvious what partition to choose as one is much smaller. But no matter what options I pick for it, it brings up an error. >_<

I know this is probably a terrible and confusing explanation, but I'm a huge newb to linux and especially fedora.If you want a better explanation please ask and I will try to deliver.

Fedora Installation :: Options For Installing 14 From Live CD?

Feb 17, 2011

Been a while since I've been on here, but I was using Fedora 12 for the longest time and only recently started having problems. I kept getting errors and pop-up dialogs telling me to run yum-complete-transaction, which I tried as root many times. It would then give an error that it couldn't locate the repository and such. So, I looked through all my yum config files and changed a few things until I FINALLY got the command to do something, only it did all kinds of strange things as I was running low on EXT3 disk space and using old Windows' partition to store a lot of things on.

Now, I backed up all the /home directories and files as well as /root, just in case this didn't go smoothly and I still ran out of disk space. If I had the money, I'd buy a storage stick and just back up everything, but that's not an option at the moment. Now I have a crippled version of XP (pretty much useless from a trojan, even though I had McAfee AND Windows Defender running), and half of Fedora 12 with 2 different boot images! When I first did this, I used a 10G partition to install Fedora, which was plenty then. What's left of Win still resides on about 65G of space, but I have a lot of files there I want to keep. Fisrst thing I want to know is, should I look anywhere else on the Fedora disk to find files I may need, just in general? There's still a LITTLE space on the drive to back up stuff if I need to.

Second, while I still had enough to work with, I managed to download and burn a F14 Live CD, which is running now. I saw the option on the desktop to install it, and can get my config files and such from the backups if need be. I do NOT have a DVD burner, so if I have to I can use regular 700MB CDs, but only if they are available.The next thing I need to know is if I can install F14 from the web, without having to download any more ISOs, (again, assuming they are available). I know all my DSL settings so that's not a problem, I just need to find out if I can install it that way before I go clicking that icon. Anyone with experience with this would be helpful. I'm ready (MORE than ready) to go through with it, I just don't want to get "stuck" once I start the process. My download rate is around 200k/sec, so it's going to take some time no matter which way I (can) go.

SUSE :: Transparency In LXDE Also Shows The Login Screen Background

Nov 29, 2010

So I have installed LXDE on my SuSE install to have a addition to the GNOME desktop. The installation went fine (of course). But I'm now faced with a problem with the transparency in LXDE, I have a box around my cairo-dock with a piece of my login screen background (looks like the well-known black-box bug. See Screen shot). This is a bit strange and I've been looking at the solutions for the black-box bug since I've had it before, but have not found a way to sort this yetv(though i have found many solutions for the black-box bug itself).

But, not only is this box around cairo-dock, the rest of the transparency in LXDE also shows the login screen background. See screen shot. Screen shot: [URL] As you can see, i haven't had time to work on the eye-candy yet.

Fedora Installation :: Installing - Live Cd Goes To Dark Screen

Feb 24, 2009

I'm kind of new to linux, but even I shouldn't have this much trouble, because I've been reading faqs like crazy and tutorials, but I just don't understand what's going on. I'm installing Linux Mint on my old machine now and it's installing good, but I try to install Fedora 10 and I've been having problems. It works fine in VMware, but when I try to load it from a live CD to install into the drive, on the initizialize process it say's "failed ata something something", then it goes to a bar and then it goes to a black screen and it hangs there. I did 5 md5check sums on the same iso, I'm not sure what's going on?
