I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.
I was forced to reinstall fc10 a couple of days back and from them the bootingup is really slow(takes more then 1 minute to show login screen). before the reinstall, it was quite fast. i dont know what went wrong.
I am trying to install systemc v2.1.0 on fc10 with gcc 4.3.2. I have gone through the previous posts for systemc installation with gcc 4.3.2 and have installed the patch , added the following headers in systemc-2.2.0/src/sysc/utils/sc_utils_ids.cpp
#include "string.h" #include "cstdlib"
but it did not work out.This is what I get The complete installation process is as follows
$tar xvzf systemc-2.1.v1.tgz $cd systemc-2.1.v1 $wget http://www.kix.in/misc/patch_systemc-2.1.v1-gcc4-osx // patch from post $patch -p0<patch_systemc-2.1.v1-gcc4-osx
installing IE on FC10 as I need it to access company email I installed wine first as #yum install wine* then I installed cabextract as #yum install cabextract after that I downloaded IEs4linux and run the script ad $./ies4linux I got the following message in the terminal "IEs4Linux 2 is developed to be used with recent Wine versions (0.9.x). It seems that you are using an old version. It's recommended that you update your wine to the latest version (Go to: [URL])" and in the install window script couldn't download flash and it seems to be hang every thing is stopped and I didn't get any message in terminal or in installation window.
I'd like to try a clean install instead of an upgrade from FC10 to FC11. What is a good way of getting the list of all packages that were installed through yum, and how do I feed that list to yum on a newly installed FC11?
I have just loaded the FC9 onto a HP/Compaq D510 2.8Ghz/Intel graphic card. Everything when as expected during the install but on login I get the following set of errors. The follow Panels encounters a problem.
I installed fedora on my second hdd, the other one had xp before fedora, now in grub it shows xp as other and wont boot into it, just hangs there. SDC is an external drive and sdb is the xp drive as you can tell by the filesystem.

I am new to Fedora 10 and encountered the following problem. I installed FC10 on an external eSATA hard drive (sdb) on my laptop which already has some other Linux distros on sda. I used a DVD that came with the Fedora 10 Bible, so I can assume that the DVD had no problems. The installation went OK and I got no error messages. I added the following lines to the menu.lst file of the distro that I use to boot all my distros.
I would like to try out fc10 on an old, k6-2 pc. Last night I tried to download the dvd, but firefox 'completed' the download with only 1.2/~3xg, and of course it didn't work.
I am trying a test net installation in VirtualBox, so far so good.
However, I would rather have a more complete installation on hand and I'm looking at the full install cd's --there are 6 of them.
Are all 6 required for a minimal install, or could I get by with one (or two, etc)? For example, with debian installation cds you can use just the first one -- the rest are just a complete set of packages for everything +kitchen sink.
I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?
This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:
Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.
In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.
I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.
I have a home network with 2 WINXP machines and one I am trying to load FC10 on. If I get FC10 to work, I will convert the others to FC10. I am trying to access the WINXP machines through my LAN. I have installed samba. I have gone through a lot of places to try to configure samba. Several places say I have to set the security level on the ethernet card using system-config-securitylevel. When I enter this in terminal, I get command not found. I checked with yum and it is installed. I have tried using the menus but cannot find it anywhere. I can see the FC workgroup from one of the WINXP machines but I cannot look into it. It says I don't have the right permissions. I would like to set it so I don't need a userid/password at all. Can I do this?
My laptop is dual-boot with Windows XP and FC10 co-existing. Yesterday, I wanna re-install FC10, so I formated(deleted) all linux partitions in Windows XP. Disaster happened when i rebooted computer: the computer cannot startup at all?Now, I don't know how to deal with it. I wanna know: what can i do to start up the computer into Windows? In my opinion, computer should work well without one system in dual-boot mode. If you format C: drive on which windows are installed, for instance, the computer can boot into FC10 normally. Why it die deleting FC10?
I've been running FC10 with all updates and had downloaded the FC11 DVD. Yesterday I upgraded to FC 11 using the DVD and it appeared that everything went fine. However when I tried to do ayum updateI got the following error. There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum
install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:14) [GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]
go to the yum faq at: [URL] I'm not sure what to do next. I also noticed that all my previously configured repositories are lost.
I am trying to boot kubutu from FC10's grub. FC10 is in MBR, installed kubuntu without grub. Is that a problem for me now? I mean, should I need to install kubutu grub in order to boot from FC10 grub? I tried with these methods but nothing works:
title Kubuntu 8.10 Linux chainloader +1 title Kubuntu 8.10 Linux
What is the best method to upgrade Fedora from 8/9 to 10? I have the DVD, and whenever I try to boot from the DVD it locks up the PC after selecting the default language stuff. I've run the media check on the DVD, and it passes with no problems. I am behind a firewall and for some reason the configuration is not allowing YUM to get through the firewall, but Firefox can get through (I have another post for this issue).
After having used fc5 for years, I installed fc10 in order to be able to run the newest versions of some of my tools. Under fc5, my monitor (Dell 2407FPW) and adapter (ATI Technologies Inc RV380) have happily coexisted at 1920x1200 76Hz. During the fc10 install, the monitor flickered a few times, then settled down (an auto-detect by the installation?) Now, after installation is complete, if I display a window with a lot of small text, the text is nearly unreadable because of horizontal jitter. If I move the window part-way off-screen, so that there is less small text on-screen, the jitter is somewhat reduced.
My hunch was that the installation got the ModeLine settings wrong, but when I went to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I couldn't find it. I also ran a case-insensitive search for any file containing "ModeLine", starting in /etc, but nothing turned up except /etc/prelink.cache, a binary file.
I tried running Computer/SystemSettings/Display, but every time I do this, the monitor immediately goes into sleep mode, and nothing will recover it out except an X11 reboot (Ctrl-Alt-Backspace).
Is there any way to tweak the display settings other than the gui ("Display") program?
I have an Intel DG33TL MB, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650, 8GB SuperTalent DDR2-800, and 4 Seagate 500GB hard disks. The disks are connected to a 3Ware 9650SE-4LPML and set for RAID0. I partitioned the drive in the following manner: 900GB for XP-Pro x64 (first install), 100 GB XP-Pro (installed second), and the remaining for FC10. After installing FC10 x64 using downloaded DVD .iso I am getting the following error on reboot:
Code: Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while... Volume group "VolGroup00" not found.
I was encountering a problem with tcsh/csh on FC 10 and decided to uninstall SELinux coreutils through the package manager. The process took quite long and when it was about to finish the screen started blinking and the keyboard was not responding. I rebooted but couldn't restart, the process stucks when the progress bar becomes white! I later tried the live CD and found out that coreutils have been removed too, so I installed them but nothing changed.
I installed FC10 but can not see mouse pointer (it was so also during the installation process). Mouse is working, Crtl shows pointer's position, moving over sensitive areas activates them but no pointer can be seen. The Mouser Property Tool doesn't show the part for selecting pointer themes (as given in Help). FC9 on the same computer worked ok, FC10 on other computers work ok, too.
Trying to install FC10 on an older Dell GX150 machine, and I get to the point where the graphical install app loads, but I am not able to see any text on the screen, other than the back/next buttons, and when I click on next, I can see that it goes to a new screen where it looks like it's asking for some text input, but I can't decipher what it's asking for, and if I try to type in the box, nothing happens.
I think I read somewhere on here about using a different boot option to get FC10 to work in a Virtual PC, but not sure if it would apply here (and can't seem to find that thread anyway!) I am booting off the FC10 DVD, and can get to the menu to install/upgrade, rescue, boot locally, or test memory. If I hit TAB, I can edit the boot option - I just need to know what to put in there to get this to work!
I tried doing an upgrade straight from fc5 to fc10. The upgrade seemed to go all right but once it was completed I've noticed some issues. My main issues are these:
1. After the upgrade all my desktop icons have disappeared and I'm not sure how to recover them. (this applies to all user account on a home machine)
2. When I click the right mouse button on the desktop I get no context menu but I do get the menu when I right click on my top or bottom menu bars.
3. When I try to launch any applications, games, etc., I see the icon show up in the bottom menu bar for a few seconds but then it disappears and the application never launches.
Those are the primary problems I'm encountering right now. I know the files in the home directories are still there (I did CTRL-ALT-F2 into a terminal and logged in as root. Normally I would've done CTRL-ALT-F1 but when I did I saw acpid messages and no prompt.) I've looked through the forums here but nothing I came across quite seemed to fit my needs.
