Fedora :: LVM Inconsistency After F14 Install?

Jan 17, 2011

I couldn't find any posts on this specific issue. I am inexperienced in Linux so please forgive my Windows-centric perspective. I recently updated to Fedora 14, used LiveCD and reformated my drives. I have two hard drives at 500gb and 1tb that combine to form one large lvm, the bulk of which is /home. According to system-config-lvm everything is in order-- it indicates lv_home with a volume group size of 1.36t and 0 available space, as it should be.

However if I browse (using Gnome 2.32.0) my filesystem and check properties on home, it indicates contents of 124GB with 77.9GB available space. The 124 probably isn't far off from what's in there right now, but 124GB plus 77.9GB don't give me close to the 1.36TB that I should have. I have lots of backed up files to move to the new installation and they total a bit more than the 77.9GB indicated as available.

Ubuntu :: Inconsistency Between LS And Nautilus

Sep 8, 2010

I have a USB hard drive for backups using rdiff-backup (/media/backups/). I tried to do a backup last night but rdiff-backup could not find the appropriate destination directory of the drive. Sure enough a ls of the drive could not find it. Odd thing is that it is all visible in nautilus! An umount and a (re) mount did not help, even a re-boot did not help.

Ubuntu :: Mount Fails Because Of Unexpected Inconsistency?

Oct 15, 2010

We are testing Ubuntu as the base for our products, we create custom Karmic installations (debootstrap + some extra packages) and then deploy our software, these systems can start in two different modes: "normal" and "read-only". We must say the system works quite well, but after some time, several systems are showing a common error: they don't start or fail showing an unexpected inconsistency for one of the partitions (every system has one hard disk with four partitions), the message refers to an unexpected inconsistency. When this error appears, a recovery console is started and I can run fsck and answer "yes" to its recommendations, after this the system runs again without errors. The problem is that this error can appear again at a random time and we need to avoid this "manual fixing" process, I've searched the web and found some references to a bug? in an early Karmic version: [URL]

Besides ALSA 1.0.23, we use only standard Karmic tools (all from the official repositories), we are running the latest kernel update available for Karmic, and don't know whether this inconsistency is caused by our software or by the system itself, or maybe because of incorrect shutdown?

At the moment, I'm setting a new test system using Lucid. Does anybody know if this is a "common" error in Karmic?

General :: Unexpected Inconsistency Run FSCK Manually

Jun 8, 2011

RHEL 5.4. I'm facing the following error after rebooting the server:
/dev/VolGroup01/u04: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY Run fsck Manually"
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell: the system wil reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
give the root password for maintenance:

-Previously I performed a lvreduce command on a LV, after the lvreduce, I reboot the server.
-After login as root I run:
e2fsck -f /dev/VolGroup01/u04

But, it shows:
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 5218304 blocks
The physical size of the device is 1310720 blocks ...
either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt
abort<y>? no

-Additionally, trying to lvdisplay, it shows:
Locking type -1 initialization failed
I have no important data on that LV, but I can not boot the server properly.

Debian Multimedia :: Inconsistency In Switching Keyboard Layouts

Jan 7, 2016

I had debian 7 with GNOM,XFCE and LXDE woking fine. After I upgraded it to debian 8 (the DE mentioned also upgraded to e newer versions) I started having problems with switching between US and RU keyboard layouts. It now behaves as if I have two US layouts and one RU, so when I press CTRL+SHIFT several times the layout changes as follows: US-RU-US-US-RU-US-US-RU etc.

This happens in all the three DEs installed. If I exit a DE using CTRL+ALT+F1 to the command line the layout switches normally. So I guess something wrons is with DEs.

My /etc/default/keyboard file reads as follows:

Code: Select allXKBLAYOUT="us,ru"

Ubuntu :: Font And Display Inconsistency Between Two Users On Same Machine?

Jan 3, 2011

I have two user accounts on this machine. This problem is particularly noticed when browsing the web in Google Chrome (though I'm not sure if this a Chrome-only problem, so I'm posting this here). My distro is Kubuntu, but all my user accounts use Gnome.

Basically, I have the same font and display settings set up on both user accounts, but the fonts are not showing up the same. I'm not sure if at some point a long time ago I did something on one account that I never did on another to change something, but either way I can't seem to find any difference in any of the settings, yet the display is still different.

This is easier explained with screenshots.

1st user account: [URL]

2nd user account: [URL]

Note how the fonts appear bold and not bold, note the different appearance of the (c) character on the webpage, and note the size of the "Google" image is different.

For Chrome settings, both are set at 100% zoom, so this is not an issue of scale. Both user accounts are also set at 1600x900 resolution. Notice that the Google Chrome fonts are both set exactly the same, as are the Gnome system fonts.

Does anybody have a clue what I'm forgetting to check here? I believe the 2nd user account is the correct one, and the 1st one is wrong, since it clearly looks uglier.

Debian :: Mounting External Drives - Unexpected Inconsistency

Jan 28, 2010

This question is an extension of previous posts in relation to my removable drives. I have an external usb/ide drives and cowon iAduio7 music player. The former is always connected and latter occasionally. The first drive to be recognized gets allocated /dev/sdc1 and /dev/hdd respectively. Until ten days ago I would simply mount them manually after each boot. Recently I added them to my fstab file. It's fine only for this error message on boot.

/dev/sdc1 unexpected inconsistency.
fsck died with exit status 4
failed (code 4)
Control-D to continue

I found the following on the net
If a device is not being mounted during boot, it may be b/c the driver for that device has not been loaded yet at the time that /etc/fstab is read (and thus the device is not active yet and doesn't get mounted). If you want to make sure it gets mounted during boot, you may need to take a look at the boot sequence for your distro and make changes as needed. Another thing you could try is adding a "mount" command of your own to one of your boot scripts. Most distros provide a file with a name like "rc.local" which gets executed late in the boot process and can be used to add your own custom commands to execute during boot. Firstly I want to know which script do you edit and does that mean I have to re-edit the fstab after creating the script.?

Here is my fstab:
[sudo] password for siawacsh:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sdd /home/siawacsh/cowon vfat defaults
/dev/sdc1 /home/siawacsh/myhome ext3 defaults 0 3
/dev/sdb2 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sdb1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
Remember sdc1 is the external drive, and sdd the music player.

I have attached the removable drives to directories mhyome and cowon.

Programming :: Inconsistency In Transferring Commands Over Serial Port?

Jun 10, 2009

I have been reading data(non-canonical input) off a serial port in a loop. The device I am connected to sends the data in a bursty manner and I have to read using the loop. The device sends some data when initially powered on which I am supposed to read. I can then send "commands" to the device over the serial port. The "command" is supposed to be "debug d 35 5 0"After I send the command there is some data that is sent back by the device to show that the command was successful. This command should elicit the right response from the device but it responds correctly some times while other times it does not. (when I try to write the consecutive commands) If I send two consecutive commands after reading the initial data and the command feedback I face some problems.

Ubuntu :: Chromium-browser Won't Start - Error Message "Inconsistency Detected By....... Failed"

Jan 8, 2010

Update-notifier told me there were updates today and I installed them. Among them were some for chromium (the browser, not the game ). After the update I couldn't start the browser. I tried starting from terminal and got: "Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-minimal.c: 138: realloc: Assertion `ptr == alloc_last_block' failed!" "I haz a fail!", I thought to myself and then tried rebooting and then reinstalling. Neither worked. This is on a 64-bit machine. Everything else works as expected. Using Firefox now, but I want my chromium-browser as well.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vpnc & Network-manager-vpnc Inconsistency?

Jan 13, 2010

I've been trying to connect to my office Cisco VPN several time using the network-manager-vpnc GUI in Ubuntu Karmic with no success. I read a couple of articles and i tried using the direct command line way:

sudo vpnc office
with the following /etc/vpnc/office.conf file:This is fictional data
IPSec gateway vpn.office.com
IPSec ID office
IPSec secret 0ff1c3
which worked perfecly.

So i went back to the Network Manager GUI way and i used the same credentials. Same fictional data I got a libnotify message telling me it couldn't connect.Anyone know how i could troubleshoot this issue? Would be great to have it integrated in gnome instead of running a background command which is not tracked by nwm.

Fedora Installation :: Install Fedora 12 I386 Using CD#1 For A Minimal Install?

Dec 19, 2009

I'm trying to install Fedora 12 i386 using CD#1 for a minimal install. For that during installation I selected only Base. For some reason when I started installation it was trying to install 432 packages (Base has got about 80 or so packages). i can understand there might be some dependencies, but really that much? I kept going with the installation of 432 packages, but it finally failed on gtk2-immodule-xim-2.18.3-19.fc12.i686.rpm.I need just minimal install, so I can install LXDE later on by myself.

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 :: How To Install Software - Install Popup Didn't Come Up ?

Jan 10, 2011

I now have Fedora 14 64bit up and running.

I need a bit of clarification. I've been using Debian based OSes. I just want to make sure that I understand how to install software using Fedora.

While I had the Live DVD desktop running I downloaded the Google Chrome .rpm pack to the download file, right clicked on the .rpm and opened with the archive manager. The archive manager came up and showed me a file folder, the a popup came up on it's own and ask if I wanted to install, clicked yes and every thing from there worked, Chrome was installed and worked. When I tryied to download the plugin for Google and do the same as before, the install popup didn't come up. This is the part where I made a mistake, I went to the download folder and double clicked on the .rpm and the install popup came up, and I installed. This some how messed up the Live desktop to the point that I had to reboot, shut down didn't even work right.

I should have opened the folder the archive manager placed the .rpm and then double clicked on the .rpm to install instead of within the dowload folder.

I aslo read up on how to use rpm -i filename From the terminal can I Or does the .rpm package have to be in the correct folder before installing?

Also from the live dvd I tried using sudo rpm -i , but got a warning and said I would be reported.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Dell N5010 - Unable To Install Fedora On Unallocated Space

My laptop is currently running on Windows 7 Ultimate. I have a 320 GB HDD, which I have partitioned as follows. C: Drive as Windows 40 GB capacity and successively partitioned the rest of the drives for 50 GB capacity and left an unallocated space of 67 GB for fedora 13 x64 installation. The problem that I am facing is, that I am unable to install fedora on this unallocated space..even though I am checking the option for "Creating custom Layout". When I check the option for "Creating Custom Layout" Ive been shown with the only option to install fedora on the unused space on the HDD which is around 265 GB. I am also attaching a screen shot of my disk management. how I can install Fedora on this unallocated space of 67 GB?

Fedora Hardware :: Parallel Printer CUPS Fedora 15 HP Doesn't Install Driver

Jun 3, 2011

This post is for an HP parallel printer but I think it should work for at least "some" other parallel printers.I am sure that someone smarter than me will follow up this post with a "well, just do this and that" and you will have your HP Laserjet 6P printer ready to go, but since questions litter the forums of MANY distros on how to get "at least" an HP parallel printer to work, I'll post this anyway.This may or may not work for you if you do not have an HP but you can try it.The install printer box will let you do an install for an HP Parallel and it asks for how it is to talk to it, through CUPS sock or "local host'. When we get through what I recommend you should chose "local host".

Fedora Installation :: How To Install Fedora 11 On External USB Drive With Anti-virus?

Sep 28, 2009

I have a Western Digital Pasport 320 GB hard drive. I wanted to create a live installation on it like a USB stick. I wanted it to serve as a portable OS that I could use to boot any other computer off of, and use it for diagnostics and anti-virus scanning on Windows based computers. The additional space is for my own personal use, kind of like having a mobile desktop where I have all of my documents in one place.What I need to know is how to set up Fedora 11 so that the hard drive will boot on most PCs regardless of their architecture. I also need to know what's a good Anti-virus to install onto it for the sake of fixing Windows hard drives.

Please keep in mind I'm a noob when it comes down to a lot of things, so if there's an antivirus I have to install manually, please included a step by step.
