Fedora Installation :: Error - The File Upstart-sysvint.0.65.9.fc14.i686.rpm Cannot Be Opened
Nov 20, 2010
it's the installation media or the ISO is broken because i have reburned / redownloaded the fedora14 multiple times with the same result. I even tried burning the disc on a different computer just to make sure the burner is still working. This is the error i am getting when the "Starting installation Process" dialog displayed.
"The file upstart-sysvint.0.65.9.fc14.i686.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source" I remember fedora 13 and below i have to use nousb command or something similar to get fedora installed properly but not for fedora 14. It just pops up with the message above.
Error executing command >>command=C:Windowssysnativecdedit.exe /create/d Ubuntu/application bootsector >>retval=1 >>stderr=The boot configuration data store could not be opened The system cannot find the file specified >>stdout=
Looks like my package manager was severely screwed. Any package manager-related command I try to run results in the following message in the console:
E: Read error - read (5: Input/output error) E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened. Anything - aptitude, apt-get.
I removed all my sources.lists, I tried running apt-cache clean It didn't help. This is really serious. Not only am I unable to do anything with packages (update, remove, install), but the machine is really slow because of this.
I've proven that the the D in systemD is for DISASTER.At first, I thought that the dozens of problems I had with startup, shutdown, and services, was due to my upgrading from Fedora 14. But now that I've tried a fresh install, I have a new set of different problems. Basically DBUS broke after I installed Samba, and no combo of reinstalling either of them fixed anything. So here goes my third Fedora 15 install.
During a fresh install, can I de-select systemd and select upstart and sysv instead? systemd is not visible in the GUI installer. Do I need some Kickstart hack or something? Is this possible at all?
I have just had a wee problem with the XFCE 4 Desktop on my Acer Aspire One with the Fedora 10 OS. Netbook worked OK this AM before work; shut down as usual. On returning from work, the Netbook seemed to boot as normal. But I only had one workspace instead of two (my usual), and when I tried to start Firefox, it was 2/3rds it's normal size and none of the usual '_  X' boxes in the the upper right hand corner! I tried booting into an earlier kernel version, but still the same. Had I accidentally altered the settings by any chance? Opened 'Fedora','Settings Manager', and clicked on 'Window manager'. But it just opened an error box, saying 'you do not appear to have a Window Manager'! Went (through google) to the XFCE webpage. The windows manager is called 'xfwm4'. Opened a terminal and tried 'top' - no xfwm4 process seemed to be running. So I quit out of 'top', typed 'xfwm4' and hit enter.
when i want run "ltsp-build-client" command i get this error: ERROR: fc14 is unsupported i want know there is any plan for ltsp 5.2 support in fedora 14 and how i can solve this problem for use ltsp in fedora 14.
I upgrade from FC12 to FC14 on Monday last. Yesterday, I noticed that CUPS wasn't running, so I looked at services and started it manually. The services appeared to be set to start CUPS automatically, but today again it wasn't running. Looking at messages, I now have the following 'errors' that appear to be disabling CUPS due to some form of load dependency.

I have a server installed with a Fedora 8 and the other client PC were installed with Windows XP. Recently, I copied an educational courseware (this courseware is developed specially for Windows based PC) into the Linux-based server. I found that the .EXE (application file) :were unable to be opened in all of the clients and also the server. How can I solve this problem?
Reading package lists... Error! E: Problem parsing dependency Depends E: Error occurred while processing python-glade2 (NewVersion2) E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
I have Ubuntu 11.0 installed.It is giving following error during update:
'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca_ubuntu_dists_natty_main _binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'
I was looking for a plugin to open pdf files in a new tab, acroread does but doesent remember the last view of the last file opened. So, is there a way to open pdf files through evince or okular within FF?
I decided to upgrade my FC installation to the latest version - FC itself offered the upgrade when I turned the machine on, so it appeared that it was nicely packaged to make the upgrade easy.After a long download of packages, the machine rebooted and then started taking me through configuration options (timezone, disks to use for the installation etc) but then it crashed trying to write to disk and now leaves me at a grub prompt whenever I boot.Is there any way to "get at" the installation files and get back into trying to install or do I now need to download an ISO and burn a DVD and start all over again?
I'm trying to install FC14 on my box... without any success so far
The problem: when it comes to write the partitioning scheme to the disk, the system freezes. This occurs with the following CD images: - Fedora 14 LXDE live image. Installation using "Install to Disk" script. - Fedora 14, regular i386 image - Fedora 15 (beta) LXDE live image
I did further tests and found out that I could simply reproduce the problem by trying to write a partition on /dev/sdb using fdisk: - after executing the fdisk 'w' command, the system hangs for about 10-15 seconds - no kernel message can been seen during this time using dmesg - after those 10-15s, the system freezes. I have no other option but power off the machine.
There is no Hardware problem with the disk itself. I can read/write partition on that disk without problem using another distro.
I'm trying to get dial up working using wvdial, kppp or system-config-network. Whatever I try, it shows "no modem found." I'm using a US Robotics serial modem that's worked with other linux set-ups, so I know it's not the modem. What's the command to find a serial modem in the terminal? lspci doesn't show it.
And any info on getting any of these to work..especially system-config-network! Had it working with linux Mint's LXDE on an older Thinkpad, but something happened after an up date (kept saying that an IBM system was detected and refusing to load a module when it booted.) After update, didn't show that warning, perhaps loading the module.
Old Thinkpad hasn't loaded an operating system since! Won't even load gparted so I can get something else on it.....so I'm sticking with Fedora until I can figure it out. Got another old Thinkpad, don't want to repeat the same mistake. Guessing that it's a debian problem, as Mint's never broken anything before.
I am trying to install 2 or 3 versions of linux on my hardisk of 500GB capacity. The configuration of my machine is Intel Dual Core, 4 GB Ram, 3.0 Processor Windows XP is not installed on this. I tried to use a tool called GParted but was unable to use as it was not able to bring up the XServer So I booted the machine with fedora14 installation CD and chose "Custom Layout" After reading about the partitions needed by Fedora I created 3 partitions in /dev/sda /dev/sda1 the boot of 500MB formated as ext4 /dev/sda2 the swap of 6096MB formatted as swap /dev/sda3 / size 150GB formatted as ext4
The installation went well and fc14 runs well on this. However when I went to install the other linux version ....the installer was not able to recognize the unallocated space of nearly 350 GB on the hard disk.....So I am not able to create new partitions and then install the new linux on the newer partition. As a result I am unable to make use of the remaining space on the HDisk. I think I should have created /dev/sda4 /dev/sda5 etc when I installed fc14 itself....
I have a server running Fedora 8 which I installed via the DVD that came with the book I am using as a learning aid. Anyway, I downloaded (via bit torrent) the Fedora 10 DVD and everything reported success, so I burned the DVD and booted the machine on which I want to install 10 (not my server).
Things were moving along fine until it started doing the actual install (partitioning etc. was complete). I had selected all three repositories. Somewhere in the middle of doing the install an error window opened with the following message "The Automake16-1.6.3-14.noarch.rpm.cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require reinstallation."
It then gave me the choices of rebooting or ejecting. I took reboot which left me in text mode with a limited version of GRUB. So Thinking it might be a problem with the added repos I tried again this time taking just the default repo. Then I got the same error but having a problem with authconfig-gtk-5.4.4-1.fc10.i386.rpm.I again took the reboot option it restarted from the DVD to take me to the regualr start of installation.
So that leaves me with a nicely partitioned system but I don't know how much as been installed or what do I do to get it to install. I didn't have the startup test the disk per the online instructions. So after all this I did and errors were found. I had errors on two different disks, so now I'm going to try using CDs instead.
