Fedora :: Failing HD And Restore Not Restoring

Dec 20, 2010

The HD containing my main F14 install is suddenly failing with many unreadable blocks. So I booted a different F14 installation I have on another disk.

Then I run dump, for example, as following:

dump -0 -a -q -v -A sdb1_home.arc -f sdb1_home.dmp -L F14_sdb1_home /dev/sdb1

as, for what I can recall, I've often done to create full backups.

The problem is that running restore with this command:

restore -i -A sdb1_home.arc -f sdb1_home.dmp

(as, for whatI can...) and using the add and extract commands, only the directory are created. But files are listed using ls. If I add just a file, only dirname is extracted.

Ubuntu Security :: Failing On The First Command When Run Iptables-restore < File Location

May 4, 2010

I'm setting up a server with Jaunty Jackalope version. I'm trying to test setting up a basic iptables rules... No matter which command I put in, it is failing on the first command when I run iptables-restore < file location (the first rule always fails). I'm doing this on the root user and first typing in the iptables rules in a test file. I've tried the first command starting with % sudo, iptables and -A. All have the same result. I've also tried letting the HTTP rule be first with the same result.

Fedora :: Restoring Deleted Files On Ext4?

Jul 20, 2009

I have recently been helping my brother set up his computer with a fresh install of Fedora 11. Unfortunately things have not been going all that well. After having some problems with Fedora 11, such as it not liking his monitor and disabling Plymouth's graphical boot (I actually like to see what my systems doing!) things finally seemed to be going into place. Unfortunately the next day we were no longer able to log into his account. After hours of tweaking I finally found out it was that for some reason GNOME stopped liking his account.

This is where things went from bad to worse. I tired removing his own account and giving him a new one, unwittingly taking out his home directory in the process, all 80 gigabytes of it. And just as promised ext4 was extremely quick about it. What can I do to recover it? We have done similar things on NTFS on Windows XP, so I see no reason why a next-gen file-system like ext4 can't do it.

Fedora :: Restoring Grub After Reinstalling Windows?

Aug 4, 2010

My Windows installation had a problem and I had to reinstall Windows. The problem now is that I need to get grub back so that I can boot into Fedora. I'm using a Fedora 11 LiveCD I had sitting around. Here are the results of the command most of the way down the first page:


Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 32301 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000f09ab


I'm tempted to try the grub-install command quoted near the end of the thread, but I don't want to do anything that will hose the system.

Fedora :: Updates Failing On New 12 Install?

Apr 3, 2010

I have recently decided to rebuild my fedora install and have had several problems installing the updates to the system. I am receiving the following error:

libcdio.so.12 is needed by package gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.14-1.fc13.i686 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)
libcdio.so.12(CDIO_12) is needed by package gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.14-1.fc13.i686 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)


I am more familiar with using sources.list in debian style distros but I am unsure how to proceed with /etc/yum/repos.d. I am currently attempting to either install them from the CLI or to download the binaries, but I do not think that will fix the problem in my repository lists.

Fedora :: GNU C++ Compiler Failing To Install

May 31, 2011

So apparently the GNU c++ compiler did not install when I did:

# yum install gcc

And now it's failing to install the C++ compiler when I do:

# yum install gcc-c++

It's saying it's running out of mirrors to check or something? Does anyone know what else I can do to install it?

Fedora Installation :: Mozilla Failing To Open

Sep 1, 2009

Skype doesn't recognise my plugged in mic and earphones. I can hear sound through the headphones from other programs. DVD burner burnt a cd for me, but seemed to pause at around 15-20% and sat there for half an hour. When I ejected CD it jumped to 100% stating it had finished. The CD was a Live Install CD for Ubuntu, which didn't work. I get I/O errors when trying to install from CD on start up. I'm guessing it didn't burn properly or isn't being read properly. I'm generally unsure of what drivers are installed for all of my hardware. Not sure if there is an auto-detection program in or for Fedora that can help, or if I will have to stop being lazy. Skype, like mentioned before. I'm not sure if this is a software issue or driver issue.

Mozilla failing to open. When clicking on the Firefox icon it wouldn't start. Shows an icon at bottom of monitor on toolbar, but disappears after 5-10 seconds with no browser opening. I had recently installed a VLC player with plugin for Mozilla while logged in as root. Wondering if I messed this one up myself? I stumbled onto updates and it had Mozilla install in there. It works again. I'm sure it won't be reoccurrent. If I were to post system specs and issues I'm having, would someone on this forum be willing to guide me through or point me in the direction of having my laptop fully operational? All drivers basically. It works as is, just not completely

Red Hat / Fedora :: Hard Disk Failing Warning On F12?

Mar 14, 2010

Last week, i updated, my fedora. After that, during every boot up, I am getting a warning message like " Your hard disk may failing". It indicates that it is due to bad sectors. But I don't think so. There was a bug reported for a similar problem in fedora 11. I think it is not fixed yet. Hard disk is not having any problem during data access. Other OS including windows are not giving any warning message.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Download Of DVD Distribution Error - Keeps Failing Near The End

Jul 22, 2010

I'm attempting to download the DVD Install ISO for Scientific Linux (Red Hat with some additions for science) to my PC-Laptop external USB Hard Disk, but the download keeps failing near the end.

My PC-Laptop is running Vista 32bit, and the external HD is a 500GB wallet sized Buffalo HD with 400 GB free. I'm no PC sys admin - but the Scientific Linux file is over 4GB in size and I wonder if this might be a problem if the HD is formatted as a FAT32 rather than an NTFS disk (if that's the correct terminology)?

The Windows Vista download window says that I've run out of space on the HD, even though I haven't.

Note that I can't think I can download this as multiple CD's rather than a single DVD distribution - because I'm trying to install this Scientific Linux in Oracle(former Sun) Virtual Box and I'm having difficulties understanding what it wants and was advised by someone to download Scientific Linux as a single iso to burn to a DVD (in the hope that Virtual box will see it for installation in the DVD drive) - but as said I'm unable to even download the DVD installation file.

Fedora :: One Or More Hard Drives Failing Icon?

Apr 10, 2010

I ran smartctl and it says "unrecognized" hard drive. I recognized the hard drive the first time I ran the test. But now, it's unrecognized? How come? I don't know how or why this happens. How can I get rid of this problem and the annoying icon?

I tried to run Windows, then started getting errors? This is strange: I've been running Linux the whole day. I last used the Windows hard drive was 2 days ago. Now its screwing up. Window is screwing up the hard drive? HDD has too many bad sectors. didn't touch it, I didn't do much on it, etc? I do not understand?!

Hardware :: Bluetooth Quietly Failing In Fedora 12

Feb 1, 2010

I can't get my Fedora 12 laptops to find bluetooth devices. In fact, I can't seem to get bluetooth working at all. This is happening with identical symptoms on two very different laptops, both of which had working bluetooth out-of-the-box with Fedora 10. Under Fedora 12 bluetooth silently fails and I have no idea how to debug it.

Here are the details:
- I'm running Fedora 12 on 32 and 64 bit machines. Both exhibit the same problem.
- I'm using KDE for both (this is the KDE spin of Fedora 12, the 32 and 64 bit versions)

I've got kdebluetooth installed. When I run


I see:

So I think the right programs are running.

Using the system menus, I can click on "Kdebluetooth4" but nothing happens. There is no bluetooth icon in the system tray, nor have I been able to discover how to add one (I thought clicking Kdebluetooth4 would do that).

I can manually run kbluetooth-devicemanager from the command line, and attempt to look for devices. The devices are never found (they are found by a nearby Windows machine, so I know the devices work). There are no error messages in the GUI, or in /var/log/messages.

On the console, I do see these messages when I run kbluetooth-devicemanager and attempt to discover devices:


Based on Google searches, that would imply a problem with dbus (I think) but dbus appears to be installed and running.

Fedora Installation :: Failing Installing Development Tools?

Mar 12, 2009

I installed Fedora 10 on an 8 GB USB-stick using the creator-software for windows. Sadly I am not so familiar with linux but as I am now trying Fedora on a friend's advice I really start to like it

Unfortunatels there ist a problem: I wanted to compile a driver for my wlan-card but got the known error "make: command not found". So I searched this forum and found in this thread that I need to install the development tools. But when I try to do so by typing yum groupinstall "Development Tools" it first starts but then cancels with an error message claiming missing dependencies to a perl package:


Fehler: Fehlende Abh�ngigkeit: perl = 4:5.10.0-49.fc10 wird ben�tigt von Paket 1erl-Pod-Escapes-1.04-49.fc10.i386 (installed)

Due to my ignorance I tried yum install perl but this also fails with the same error message I am sure it is just a bite for you but I don't hava a clue right now By the way I already can call the command make install now for the wlan-card driver. It also starts but fails and says:

Fedora :: Services (Haproxy And Stunnel) Failing To Start

Dec 3, 2009

I have 2 services registered one for HAProxy and one for stunnel. When I type service start haproxy or service start stunnel they start and everything works fine. I ran ntsysv and they are set as autostart, and I have init.d scripts that work. I have checked the runlevel and using chkconfig runlevel 3, 4 and 5 are :on. And I also added service haproxy start and service stunnel start to inittab. But when I restart the computer haproxy and stunnel fail to autostart. I am a fedora novice and I have no idea why this isn't working...

Fedora :: Recover Data From Failing Hard Drive

Jun 26, 2010

Using F12 with a LVM Volume, Single disk with OS on and boot partition. The OS HDD is getting i/o errors, but will still boot to the login screen. I've removed the HDD and connected it to a Fedora Live OS on my laptop, connected the HDD and it registers as :

[root@localhost]# fdisk -l /dev/sdd
Disk /dev/sdd: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000e0069

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 1 26 204800 83 Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sdd2 26 30401 243991201 8e Linux LVM

And it tried to mount /dev/sdd2 to view and see if I can recover some files.
[root@localhost]# mount /dev/sdd2 /mnt -t ext4[root@localhost james]# mount /dev/sdd2 /mnt -t ext4
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Any way to mount the partition to allow me to try and get some data back, or if trying to do a full backup of the drive you can get it to ignore i/o errors.
