Fedora Installation :: F15 Install Fails On HP 2133 - Microcode

Jun 20, 2011

Both F15 KDE Live CD and DVD new installs fail on HP 2133 mini notebook. The device has previously accepted F12 installation without a problem. The HP 2133 has a VIA C7 processor. Is this CPU is no longer compatible with Fedora? The syslog repeats endlessly 'microcode: no support for this CPU vendor'. The Live CD will not even begin the install to diskl. The DVD will install but will fail on reboot with the microcode error. How to overcome this installation problem?. Is there a kernel upgrade or microcode update that has already resolved this and how can it be installed?

Fedora :: Where To Install / Copy The Microcode.dat File To Update The CPU

Feb 3, 2011

I installed fedora 14 on my Dell studio xps 1645 with CPU intel i7 core inside.

I downloaded the microcode.dat file from the intel website to update the revision of the CPU.

I tried to put it in /etc/ but no update was done. also in /etc/firmware (after creating the latter directory), and no update was done. also in /lib/firmware (after renaming the current microcode.dat file) and no update was done.

Ubuntu :: Trying To Install 10.04 On HP 2133

Jun 10, 2010

I'm trying to install version 10.04 of the ubuntu netbook remix on my HP 2133 netbook. I'll try and be as thorough as I can with the information but I'm new to Ubuntu so there's a chance I'm missing something crucial. I'm using Universal USB Installer v.1.60 to make the boot disk. I've checked the MD5 checksums and they're fine. According to the compatibility list it should work straight out the box so I don't know what's going on.

Here's what's happening. I put the USB drive in and boot off it using the BIOS menu. I get a text cursor blinking in the top left corner of my screen for a few seconds and then it just jumps straight back into windows. This is really starting to bug me as I've checked and double checked everything. The only thing I can think of is that it's because my netbook has a VIA C7-M rather than an Intel Atom processor but, as I've mentioned, the compatibility page says it should work. If it is because of this, can I get around it and if so, how?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

Jan 23, 2009

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda the Fedora system installer - please wait.....

Fedora Installation :: F11 - Graphical Install Fails - Text Install Has No Fdisk

Jun 28, 2009

I have been using Redhat/Fedora for 11 years. I don't understand why Fedora 11, can't even do a vga graphical install, when Windows can.

I tried many parameters, including xdriver=vesa, and it cannot used graphical install.

So, I tried text install, which I have done many times in the past.

However, F11 seems crippled, in that it will NOT do the same install achievable from a graphical install.

It will NOT allow the use of fdisk, and it will NOT allow any selection of any packages.

What is the point of this option?

Even after trying all of this, for a dual boot install, and F11 claims to have installed, there is no grub or equivalent, and the computer just boots windows, just like Fedora 11 did absolutely nothing.

What are the options now? Why is text install so crippled and incomplete? Why is standard VGA mode so hard?

Fedora Installation :: Keyboard Fails During 11 Install

Sep 10, 2009

I am attempting to install Fedora 11 on a Dell Windows Server 2003 computer from CD (I just want to override the Server PC with F11). I used this media in my class last night after testing it, so I know the media itself is good. We did have lots of issues getting the keyboard and mouse to work during the install attempts last night, too, but eventually it worked. Unfortunately, at home is a different story!

I boot from install Disk 1 and get to the first screen with the option of testing the media or skipping it and I only get one keystroke then nothing. F11 just hangs/stops/freezes/locks up. Reboots don't help and I attempted to install from the F11 DVD I made, too, but the machine completely wouldn't see that disk at all! The keyboard is connected directly to the computer via PS2. I don't have a USB keyboard laying around nor an adapter to try.

I would love to hook up my children with F11! I did manage to figure out what files to download, burn to disk and how to install F11 at school yesterday).

Fedora Installation :: F12 Fails To Install Timezone

Feb 26, 2010

I'm newbie in Linux, but have used Windows and Mac OS X Leopard. Used RedHat in the past, and can't figure this out. I burned Fedora12-x86_64 DVD image on DVD, and start install. Whether I use "linux text" command from boot or just select Install at graphical prompt, everything goes OK until I select hostname. I leave it as "localhost.localdomain" and press Enter. It always give me an error "Can't load class=TimeZoneWindow".

My computer is connected via ethernet to my router, and I had no problems getting online in Windows. Now, in case there are hardware questions:
Intel Pentium 4 with HyperThread enabled and 64bit support (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit runs perfectly in 64bit mode)
2Gb of DDR 400Mhz RAM
I have 2 SATA hard drives with RAID option as Mirror (BIOS settings - RAID or AHCI)
And 128Mb ATI RAdeon X300 series. Pretty simple, but this error aborts my installation.

I tried to do Anaconda updates, but I have no clue about URL where the image is, ex:
linux updates=[URL]
or I tried configuring network:
linux ip= netmask= gateway= dns=,
and no luck. Why does "Can't load class=TimeZoneWindow" appear? Is it a network issue or what? I've seen the screenshot for TimeZone screen in the Installation Guide, but I never get to it.

Fedora Installation :: Install Fails Due To Not Being Able To Mount

Dec 27, 2010

I am saddened that I can't install any Linux distro with ease on my HP m8530f computer which runs on a m2n78-la motherboard. It has a Phenom CPU, 6 SATA ports and probably a fakeRaid (at least that's what I guess is causing problem). The Fedora 14 Desktop install goes all the way to the end and then I get a fail message due to not being able to mount /dev/mapper/xxxxx.

P.S. the motherboard only has SATA mode or disabled for HardDrive mode and no any other options. Seems like this is an HP custom made motherboard from Asus hence the limited options in Bios setup.

Fedora :: Microcode - Boot Process Hangs At Startx Time

Sep 4, 2010

Ever since the kernel update to, my boot process hangs at about startx time. I boot cleanly at runlevel 3 in either this or the previous kernel. If I execute startx from here (in either kernel), the system hangs at the same place. During the early troubleshooting, I read in another thread (250929) about installing xorg-x11-drv-catalyst, which I did using yum. This led to the failure of the 2.6.33 kernel; yum remove did not fix this. I have carefully followed the instructions in the fglrx HOWTO (updated a week ago by Hlingler) as they relate to a PAE kernel (including reinstalling mesa-libGL), and that fixed earlier difficulties. Hence, I felt I needed a new thread.

dmesg tells me
microcode: CPU0: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
piix4_smbus 0000:00:14.0: SMBus Host Controller at 0xb00, revision 0
microcode: CPU1: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.00 .....

But the program itself reports
# microcode_ctl -h
This program is for updating the microcode on Intel processors belonging to the IA32 family - PentiumPro upwards (x86-64 included). It depends on the Linux kernel driver. The website urbanmyth.org/microcode (mentioned by yum info microcode_ctl) clearly indicates that Intel has taken over this microcodecode distribution, and suggests that it is no longer valid for AMD processors.

I found a reference to a kernel configuration flag CONFIG_MICROCODE_AMD (as a plausible subsititute for CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL) that possibly belongs in a script in /etc/init.d - but the above context leads me to suspect this is not true any more. In any event, those flags are not mentioned anywhere in my init.d scripts - in fact nowhere in the entire /etc tree. My microcode file exists, and is dated March 23. How do I get it installed? Or is this completely unrelated to my hanging boot problem, as suggested by the "platform microcode" line in the dmesg output? If so, where should I be looking?

Fedora Installation :: F11-install From External DVD Using Boot.img CD Fails?

Jul 24, 2009

I have sevral older machines that cannot boot from usb. Until now I have installed fedora using the provided boot.iso on a CD and an external USB dvd drive with the full install DVD.

With Fedora 11, this fails. It gets as far as "finding storage devices" and fails, telling me that an unhandled exception has occured. It offers to save the details, but freezes looking for a suitable location. I have no such problems with the same DVD/external rw drive on systems that can boot directly from usb.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Fresh Install From HDD Fails With Db_version_mismatch

Jun 7, 2010

I'm currently running F11 and am trying to replace it with a fresh install of F13, using the same partitioning layout. I downloaded the F13 i386 DVD ISO using bit torrent. (The sha256sum of my downloaded ISO matches the reference sha256sum value.) I'm trying to do the fresh install of this ISO from hard drive (without burning a DVD). Last summer I did the same procedure of installing a downloaded DVD ISO from HDD when replacing F9 with F11. The installer (Anaconda 13.42) proceeds to the point where I specify my custom partitioning layout. It then prompts me about storing a boot loader. Shortly after I reply to that, the installer gets an "unhandled exception".

rpmdb: Program version 4.8 doesn't match environment version 4.7
error: db3 error (-30971) from dbenv -> open: DB_VERSION_MISMATCH

The only nonstandard thing I did was the following. According to the F13 installation guide, for installation from HDD the file "install.img" from within the ISO files must be copied to a directory named "images". The F13 installation guide gives the following procedure:

mount -t iso9660 /path/to/Fedora13.iso /mnt/point -o loop,ro
cp -pr /mnt/point/images /path/images/
umount /mnt/point

Instead, I used "Archive Manager" to extract "install.img" from my DVD ISO. I copied it to a directory named "images".

Fedora Installation :: F15 Install Fails On Asus 1101HA / What To Do?

Jun 19, 2011

I have been running Fedora 14 on my Asus 1101HA netbook for several months without real problems. This weekend I tried to install Fedora 15, but the install failed in two ways:

* The GUI login screen never appears. I'm able to log in using character mode, but that's all.

* The network hardware is not configured, even the wired connection. Hence, I'm unable to apply updates (which I hoped might fix the GUI problem). I tried manual configuration (which is hard to find instructions for these days), but it didn't work.

The output of ifconfig shows no eth0 device, but rather something called "em2":

I've attached the Xorg.0.log file and the output of dmesg and ifconfig.

Fedora Installation :: Dell Poweredge 2850 - Fails Install On FC11

Aug 23, 2009

FC11 i386 dvd iso image passes pgp verify. Burns fine and verifies fine under nero. Boots fine and verifies fine on my athlon system and installs just fine. Not one issue at all. 1374 pkgs install without issue. Take the same disc put it into my dell poweredge 2850 (dual xeon) and the disc fails to verify.

Even if I go ahead and try to install, it will boot and go through the menus. Then on package install at some point it will say one is corrupt and halts the install. Yet ubuntu 9.04 installs just fine on it. So I don't see how it could be the dvd player itself, though not 100% ruled out.

Fedora Installation :: Once It Says Its Loading Anaconda, Screen Either Goes Blank, Or The Anaconda Fails And The Install Exits?

Apr 9, 2009

I'm trying to build a dual boot ubuntu 8.10 and fedora 10.I have ubuntu sucessfully installed. with a free partition ready for fedora.I cant seem to get fedora past the beginning of the install. Once it says its loading anaconda, my screen either goes blank, or the anaconda fails and the install exits, telling me to reboot my system.I have downloaded the DVD twice. once from the website, and i think when I bruned it it didn't burn right, I then downloaded it from torrent just to be safe and reburned at the slowest speed. It passes the media test.

I have been reading around it may be cause of my video card?My computer is the following.AMD Athlon +2400 XPXFX Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT or something close.80 gig hard drive1.5 gigs of DDR ram.MSI Motherboard not sure of model off top of my head.I really wanna get this dual boot working, As I feel fedora may have advantages over ubuntu. I was going to try to get ahold of another video card, and maybe try that. What do you think I should do

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation 11.4 Fails ?

May 9, 2011

I wanted to update my 11.3 installation to 11.4. Everything went fine, but at the point the installation switched to the installed new system, it went completely wrong. This is the first time after more than 15 years of using (open)SUSE I have got trouble to install a new version.

What went wrong: the display shows some hundred miniature thumbnails of the screen to continue the installation. Only possibility was to switch to a console session. I did change the settings in initrd to NO_KMS_IN_INITRD to 'yes', then rebooted the PC. But the display is still unusuable. Then I tried the failsafe option, without any success. So I had to re-install the previous version, where I don't have this troubles. Fortunately, I made a backup of most of my settings, but it takes me still a lot of time to re-install everything, as I have to re-install a lot of libraries and recompile some programs.

I did a try with a live-DVD of Knoppix, the display is also scrambled but not so bad as with 11.4. Then I tried a live-CD of Kubuntu, and there anything worked PERFECT!

If openSUSE cann't give me a valuable explanation and solution, I have to consider to switch to Kubuntu after more than 15 years of openSUSE.

Some details of my hardware:
- graphics card: nVidia GeForce 6150SE
- driver: nouveau
- display: Acer HD 24inch screen with a resolution of 1900x1080

Remark: with the installation of 11.4 on other PC's of friends and family, I didn't have troubles, but they don't have such a high-resolution display.
