Fedora Installation :: F11 With USB Gives Barebones System (no Gnome Or Xserver)

Mar 19, 2010

I have followed serveral sets of instructions for creating an installation media USB key from the DVD.iso for fedora 11 i386... Every time i have worked through the installation i get a very bare bones system...
why would this happen... i look through the usb key and can see packages for xorg and gnome etc... but they are not installed? do i need to specify somehow that i want a "full" install... so far i have selected something like "Install or upgrade system..." why are some "components" missing from my installation?

Hardware :: Barebones System From Shuttle SG41J1 PLUS - Run A 64-bit Version ?

Jun 19, 2010

Have used Linux for a long time, but never set up a system myself. It is my intention to get a barebones system from Shuttle called "SG41J1 PLUS" and run Linux on it.

This has the following H/W components:

- Intel Core2 Quad
- Chipset Intel G41 + ICH7
- VGA Intel X4500
- Sound IDT 92HD89C
- Ethernet Marvell 88E8057

Can I assume that the Intel ICH7 would be supported and the graphics too ?

For the Ethernet controller I obtained drivers (source code) from the manufacturer, so I hope this should be fine.

For the sound chip I don't know yet whether I could get drivers. Are there any ? I had a look at the ALSA project's site but could not see exactly this sound chip mentioned.

Should I expect any problem if I wanted to run a 64-bit version of Linux on that machine ?

Fedora Installation :: Xserver Set To Display Modes Above 800*600

Dec 27, 2009

I use 3 computers attached to a kvm switch (not the hypervisor) and this works fine w/ windows xp and ubuntu 9.04 and earlier. However I am having a problem w/ Fedora 12. It seems that it cannot read the EDID block, so I am not able to set the display above 800x600. There is no xorg.conf file, so I had one generated by Xorg -configure :1. I also tried using the modeline instructions, but the Xserver would not start until I removed modeline. I have tried adding to Section "Screen"

Subsection "Display"
Modes "1280x800"

but it seems that this is ignored. how can I get the Xserver to set display modes above 800x600 when it cannot read EDID (thru a kvm switch) and it seems to be ignoring settings in xorg.conf?

Ubuntu :: Killed Xserver / Gnome - Cursor Stays At The Left When 2 Monitors Connected

Mar 5, 2011

i somehow screwed my xserver (I guess it is the xserver). I got the following problem:

1) When i have 2 monitors connected, the cursor stays at the left one even though i select text on the right one.

2)(i plugged the left one out)As soon as i open a window and click on something in the window the window cannot be moved anymore, and the desktop cannot be selected anymore either (though u still can do something inside the window), as soon as you close the window (if you are lucky and there is a "close" button) the desktop can be used again.

This all started when i played a flash game which froze like everything but the game, and i had to restart the computer. I guess it somehow screwed the .conf file or the xserver. I already tried the xorg.conf.backup but it didn't help!

Ubuntu Installation :: 64bit Installation Error During Installation Of Xserver-xorg-driver-all

Jan 20, 2010

I'm trying to install Kubuntu 9.10 on my machine (I had the same problem with Kubuntu 9.04). The machine is:

- Core 2 Quad 6600
- Nvidia 7600 GS
- Two disk seagate 500 in mirroring raid software

When I try to install Kubuntu, after disk partition, my system dosn't see the CD. He tell me to insert disk into drive but I doesn't touch it. I resolved this mounting an external hard disk into /cdrom. After this, the installation continues until the step "select and install software". At this step, the installation procedure tell me an error. During this error, in the other console, I've this:

OpenSUSE Install :: Reinstall A Barebones Xp On A Compac Laptop As A Dual Boot With 11.1

Mar 15, 2010

I would like to try to reinstall a barebones xp on a compac laptop as a dual boot with 11.1. I repartitioned using gparted so I now have 20 Gb free. Here (I hope) is the output of fdisk -lu [URL] I spent a lot of time setting up opensuse and don't want to lose the settings, etc. Should I repartition with the 20G space "in front" of the linux partitions? Can I back up the linux settings so I can reinstall them if I lose everything? Is there a sort of windows emulator (wine?) that will run programs that won't run on opensuse, like netflix, tax prep software, etc? Too many questions I know but I would like a fairly simple foolproof fix if possible.

Fedora :: Building A System With KDE And GNOME?

Oct 10, 2009

I am trying to build a system that will run both KDE and GNOME. I currently have just GNOME installed. So I need to install KDE and KDM (which I know how to do). The thing that I don't know how to do is make it default to KDM when it boots rather than GDM. Also I need a way to get rid of the GNOME apps in the menus in KDE and the KDE apps in the menus in GNOME. Also, this system in running Fedora 11 x86_64

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Stop Gnome-system-monitor?

Sep 26, 2010

since a few days (maybe one week and after an automatic upgrade), I could see a strange behavior of gnome-system-monitor. After a boot, everything is normal. But if I log-out, and then log-in again, the problem begins. Impossible to close the gnome-system-monitor window (by clicking on the window upper-right close button). I have to terminate the process. And this process takes about 50% of CPU. In the same time, a dbus-deamon process takes the other 50%. When I terminate gnome-system-monitor process, the CPU use drops down to 6%.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Broke System By Switching To Gnome 3

May 3, 2011

Just updated my system to 11.04 and was not a fan of Unity. So I decided to switch to gnome 3. I downloaded all the packages and made the switch, only to realize I had made a HUGE mistake. While gnome 3 looks beautiful, it doesn't work at all for me. I have no internet (wired or wireless) now, and a host of other complaints.But when I try to restart Unity, the system fails. I also cannot start up Ubuntu in normal or Classic modes anymore.

Ubuntu Installation :: XServer Will Not Start After Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04?

May 2, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 and when trying to boot, the computer would hang at the splash screen. Going into recovery mode showed nothing in the log files. The Xorg and gdm logs were zero bytes but had the proper timestamp. I tried and tried, but could not get it to boot until I removed the nvidia-current package. Then the computer will boot, but the screen is partially corrupted with just a blue background. I can hit enter, then type my password and I can actually login, but I can't see a thing. I can cycle through the resolutions with Ctrl +, but the screen just still has a blue background and nothing else. Trying to boot in failsafe X mode gives the same screen. I tried putting the vesa driver in the xorg.conf, but no change.

I've tried the i915.modeset=0 boot option. I've tried the "xforcevesa" boot option, but nothing will give me a readable screen. As soon as I re-installed the nvidia-current package and ran nvidia-xconfigure, the problem came back and it hangs again.At this point, I'm stuck. I would settle for a plain VGA screen at this point, but I can't even seem to get that. I've read several posts here with similar problems and tried every solution put forth, I think, but have not found a solution.When the upgrade wanted to install the new /etc/default/grub, I kept my old one. I compared the two files at the time, but I didn't see anything new, but maybe I missed something. What new items if any does the upgrade put into /etc/default/grub?

Ubuntu Installation :: Latest Updates Break The Xserver?

Jun 13, 2010

Ubuntu has been great and it is a great Linux distro. Unfortunately, the update of 9.10 desktop edition to release 10.4 failed on a couple of fronts.

1) Xserver is no longer working;
2) An upgrade of grub-pc causes an exception.

The system ran perfectly before the update was performed. The update resulted in Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of MBR. This is a BAD idea. usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and is use is discouraged.

Based on information found at [URL]... an attempt was made to execute the following command. sudo aptitude dist-upgrade But that resulted in E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run sudo dpkg configure ato correct the problem The later launches an upgrade of grub-pc. This routine requests the selection of which devices are to be used to store grub-install. When that was done ... GRUB failed to install to the followed devices: /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd4

Do you want to continue anyway? If you do, your computer may not start up properly. GRUB installation failed. Continue? Questions:
1) Can / should the upgrade of grub-pc be bypassed in order to get the system running?
2) If not, what values should be selected when selecting the devices to store grub-install?
3)Because the computer is a RAID configuration, would someone advise are there special considerations which should be considered?
4) Once grub-pc is resolved or bypassed, should the commands found in the aforementioned article be used to repair xserver.
5) Are there additional measures which will be needed to in order to complete the update to release 10.4?

Here are some helpful details on the system configuration

The computer has four disk drives using RAID 1 and RAID 5.In the following configuration RAID5 Device #0 750.2 GB Sotfware RAID device
#1 750.2 GB ext4
SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) 320.1 GB ATA WDC WD3200AAKS-2
#4 primary 250.1 GB K raid
#3 primary 16.0 GB F swap

Fedora :: Which Package Provides Gnome-system-monitor Applet

Nov 4, 2010

can anyone please tell me which package provides the gnome system monitor applet (the one which can display cpu load and disk I/O in the tray)?I run XFCE on F14/x64 and would like to display it using the XfApplet.

What i've tried already:
*) Installed the "GNOME Desktop Environment" --> Nothing changed
*) did a yum provides "/usr/lib64/bonobo/servers/*" to check which packages are providing applets - didn't found anything which sounds like the system monitor applet

The XfApplet shows up a bunch of available applets but not the system monitor ...

Fedora :: Gnome-system-monitor Won't Close Anymore

Aug 1, 2011

Since one of the recent updates, I cannot close the System Monitor anymore. Opening it, no problem. All processes are listed just fine and I can force close anything that gives me trouble but... When I want to close System Monitor again, nothing. Qtrl + Q, the X close button at the top right, Alt + F4... all do nothing. And although each time I see some disk activity, there is nothing in the logs.

Another thing I notice is that both dbus-daemon and gnome-system-monitor use about 40% CPU time each, taking the system to 100% CPU usage all the time.Luckily, I have System Monitor open so I can select the process gnome-system-monitor from the list and hit Terminate Process. I did not find anything about it in these forums. Anyone noticed this too or am I the only one?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Find The Right Command To Start Another XServer?

Jun 30, 2010

I tried my best on searching for the answer to this question. I couldn't find the right command to start another XServer. Maybe I just don't know how to look for it, or I'm using the wrong keywords. Anyway, what I want to happen is hit CTRL+ALT+F6 (F7 to return to my desktop) and start another XServer to run a full screen game. How do i do that? Is it possible to have multiple instances of X?

By the way, the error says that an instance of x server is already running on display 0 after I have issued this command: Code: startx In case you're wondering why this is my solution, it's because scripting is not my type for automatically making an xserver when I click a game, especially if you'd have to do it for all other games :/ So, let's stick to my idea D unless it's impossible, of course. EDIT: I was able to get a new xserver with xterm in it, but it seems there is no acceleration or some sort >.< OpenLieroX runs at a frame rate of 15 fps or so. Anyone have an idea on how to enable acceleration on openbox?
