Fedora :: F14 64bit LXDE. Frustration With Truecrypt And Grub2?

Nov 10, 2010

I really haven't used Fedora that much lately. I decided to give 14 a try and I wanted to duel boot with LXDE in case Debian SID crashes or there are other issues. Brief run down. I have both Debian and Fedora on seperate hard drives, both Encrypted LVM. Each hard drive has, of course, a boot partition that is not encrypted.

Now my issues are this. Fedora does not want to see Debian, Debian does not want to see Fedora (Lover quarrel I think.) Anyways I decided to just install G.A.G boot loader to the MBR and have grub installed on the boot partition for both Debian and Fedora. This worked great for Debian. However I can't seem to get the same grub commands to work with Fedora. As root I can't update-grub at all and when I try to grub-install to Fedora's boot partition it tells me that partition is not in the BIOS.

Now Truecrypt installed fine. But it will not run at all. Not when I click it in the accessories menu or if I try to run it for the command line. This is the first distro I ever had issues with concerning Truecrypt.

Ubuntu Installation :: Moving Grub2 Mbr Because Of Truecrypt?

May 23, 2010

After having encrypted my windows partition, truecrypt overwrote my mbr, and now I can't access grub during boot, not even when I press escape I was thinking of restoring my original mbr with the truecrypt rescue cd, boot into ubuntu and copy the mbr to the ubuntu partition, how to do it.

Ubuntu Security :: Dual Booting With Truecrypt 6.3a Chainloading Grub2

Jan 4, 2010

I'm having problems getting TC to load grub2 1.97b4. When I hit ESC from the TC boot prompt, I get "no bootable partitions found".

I also booted into Ubuntu Live cd, mounted my LVM dm-crypted volume and tried to reinstall grub2 to my nonencrypted /boot under /dev/sda3 and TC still wont boot. Then I set the boot flag on /dev/sda3 and it still won't boot.

These are the commands I used to install grub2 to my /boot partition. Atleast that's what I think it did.

grub-install /dev/sda3
grub-install --recheck /dev/sda3

Ubuntu :: 11.04 64bit - Unable To Install Truecrypt

May 16, 2011

I'm running Natty 64 bit and cannot install Truecrypt 7.0. I downloaded the tar.gz from [URL] and have tried to install it several times, all without success. I've tried to install it via terminal by running


Each time it goes through the normal steps of having me accept the user agreement and the popup which tells you to run the "truecrypt.uninstall.sh" script to uninstall. The problem is that each time when I click 'ok' at the last step, my desktop environment freezes. I'm running unity 3d. The terminal I started the install process in doesn't produce any output.

Sometimes when the freeze occurs I can still move my mouse, but none of the menus or windows will respond. Other times the mouse will be frozen as well or it will just log me off. I haven't found anyone else talking about this issue and I honestly don't know where to start looking for a way to fix it.

Software :: Fedora 13 Gcc Dependency Frustration?

Nov 1, 2010

I have no means of interface with the internet on the machine in question until gcc is available to compile the drivers for my abhorrently incompatible wireless. My router only supports local connection via Ethernet. I have been hunting down dependencies for the past few hours and have come to a dead end. By my current path

<could not do simulate: Can't install <filepath>/glibc-2.11.2-3.x86_64.rpm as no transaction > is giving me trouble

I don't particularly care what version within reason, I just need a list of specific packages and locations to get gcc running without yum or equivalent means of downloading to the machine itself. Alternatively, a solution to my current error looks promising as I think I have all of the compatible packages for this one. here are the packages on the flash drive I have been using

Fedora :: Live CD And Wireless NICs Frustration?

Apr 7, 2010

I had two potential converts to Fedora this week, but had to go windows because I could not demonstrate how the Internet worked with the Live CD. In both cases networking did not catch the wireless card. In one instance I just ignored what card that was, but the other, I wrote it down: Lenovo p/n 42T0865 Intel 802.11 Kedron Am I doomed to failing with wireless NICs on the live CD? Any suggestions?

p.s it is hard enough to get people to switch due to that lack of applications (usually Quick Books, Acrobat Professional, various tax software, UPS World Ship, FedEx Ship, various business-to-business web sites that only support IE), without the Live CD failing to demonstrate how well Linux works.

Fedora :: Dual Booting - Grub2 To See F15 Or Be Installed Using Grub2?

Jul 11, 2011

I installed Fedora 15, which was my first real departure from Debian based Linux OSs. I absolutely love the new Gnome 3, and was able to configure F15 to work as I wanted it to. On rebooting I realized that there was no boot loader screen, that F15 just booted and didn't give me a choice as to which OS I wanted to use. Eventually I was able to configure grub to let me see the boot loader and added my old boot loader as a choice. This worked well, maybe not a perfect solution, but it worked. This weekend I installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) to another HDD. LMDE uses grub2 and after the install F15 was not recognized.

Two questions: Is there a way for grub2 to see F15? or Can F15 be installed using grub2? I really don't mind re-installing from scratch.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Same Fortran Code, Different Results For 32 And 64bit System?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Work Correctly With Firefox 3.5 And F11 64bit?

Aug 15, 2009

Can anyone get the website below to work correctly with Firefox 3.5 and F11 64bit?[URL]...All I see is the background scrolling slowly and jerkily, none of the buttons at the bottom work. Reboot into Windows 7 and IE8: the same site is fast, smooth, the buttons work and the product details appear correctly in the centre of the screen.

I've tried disabling all adblock /pop up block options, ensured all javascript options are enabled and no change. Could this be a problem with the 64 bit flash player (installed from leigh's sticky thread) or a problem with OpenJDK?

Fedora :: Load Grub2 From Grub4dos / Load Directly Grub2 Core Without Passing By Bootstriping Code?

Jan 24, 2011

I want to load grub2 from grub4dos.I want to load directly the grub2 core. I know how to load first 512 bytes from some patition by chainloader and load grub2, but what I need is to load directly grub2 core without passing by bootstriping code (first 512 bytes).So, my first boot manager is grub4dos, then I can load grub2 and later I load Ubuntu. But I think I have to edit --set-root
What I dont know is how.

In hdd 0,7 (sda8) I have Ubuntu 10.10 and /boot/grub/core.img is in sda8 (hd0.7)

I tried this way:

title grub2
find --set-root /boot/grub/core.img
kernel /boot/grub/core.img

Fedora X86/64bit :: BBC IPlayer Desktop And AIR On 64bit?

Oct 17, 2009

Edit: now working, thanks very much Leigh and Dangermouse.

Anyone successfully installed AIR and iPlayer on F11?

I've switched to 32 bit Adobe flash, tried Autoten for AIR and Dangermouse's advice for iPlayer: url.html but it's not working, and trying to install AIR from url results in an endless busy downloading graphic .

I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: url.html and can't see them either as installed or available.

Fedora Installation :: Dual-boot F13 And Windows 7 With TrueCrypt?

I am having trouble getting my laptop set up the way I want it. I want to install Fedora 13, using Ext4 encryption, and I also want to install Windows 7 encrypted using TrueCrypt.

On boot, I would like to have Fedora 13s GRUB, offering me the two OS choices. If I select Fedora, then Ill get the cool graphical decryption screen, and if I select Windows 7 Ill get the TrueCrypt boot loader prompting me for the decryption key for the Windows 7 partition. Can anyone give me instructions on how to get this set up?

General :: Best LXDE Based Distro/distro That Supports LXDE?

Dec 15, 2010

Lubuntu is nice - but it seems the LXDE version is not as up to date as Fedora LXDE Spin or even Debian squeeze with LXDE installed. I do like Chromium on Lubuntu though... its faster and a nice touch. I am looking for a lightweight 64-bit distribution for my main laptop (it is by no means "old" or "low spec" but I like that Lubuntu starts up in like 2 secs).

LXDE version seems not to be recent (esp in 10.04 version which seems to work more stably for me - with Nvidia drivers etc)64 bit install is currently a pain - requires first install of minimal CD or alternate CD both of which required wired Ethernet, then install of lubuntu from PPA. Native 64-bit support would be nice. Linux Mint LXDE, for example, is also only 32-bit.
