I am having trouble in configuring xorg.conf. I am running Suse 11.3 desktop on my PC. Also, I have one onboard nvidia graphics 6150SE and I have put one nvidia 8400GS 512Mb in the 16X PCIe slot for the additional seat...
So kindly tell me what should I do now or what things are missing ?? For any further info abt my PC plz tell me to post outputs(specify the commands for the same..)
It disappears too fast! I'm using the netinstall spin of the Fedora 13 x64 disk. As far as I know, I still need to tell it to load Anaconda from the network. Is that correct? Anaconda loads from the CD, but I would prefer to use the downloaded image. Should I just let Anaconda go through its paces then tell it where I downloaded the image to on my network?
The documentation is woefully inadequate when it comes to using the netinst spin (yes, I am already thinking about providing help on the install docs based upon my experiences).
When I try to build rpm-4.8.1 on RHEL6 i686, some errors after `make`:
What package should I need to install? I searched a lot and found someone said it needed gzip and/or gzip-devel. My system already has gzip installed. But I can't find where to get gzip-devel. Is this true? I need to install gzip-devel to make?
One of our F14 machines was originally set-up with the i386 Kernel. I found out it had a kernel crash and the person tried to fix it by reinstalling the kernel, unfortunately they installed i686. Now some of our software that was setup to work with i386 is not cooperating. Is there a way to switch from the i686 kernel to i386 without reinstalling the system?
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)"
If you have a contiguous partial piece of an ext4 file system (assuming it's perfectly clean), starting from the beginning of the partition, is there any way to check it, or to mount it to get the files whose parents, inodes and data are all completely contained inside?
Have (or maybe had) a very large 11TB RAID 6 array, filled with a single large ext4 partition. Something strange happened when a single drive failed and the array ended up failing 13 out of the 11 drives. I had trouble getting the array restarted, and got to the point where I exhausted all of the options I considered completely safe. I considered a few things that may have worked, but mdadm doesn't seem to have a definite "do not change anything" option. So I decided the only way to be absolutely safe would be to clone the disks before proceeding - then I realized how much time that would take and sent the drives off to a recovery service so they could image them and check it out.
Before doing so, I copied the first 2GB from each disk. I XORd the images from the working drives to reconstruct the data chunks that were on the failed disk, manually assembled the chunks, and am very confident that I have 22GB of "correct" data in a single file. The parity and Q syndromes all matched (with RAID 6 you can still check with only 1 missing device). I've learned the fine details of ext4 from [URL], and have looked at lots of raw data from the reconstructed partition, and it all looks good. The recovery company says that they're not finding many inodes, but I found a lot of them, exactly where they're supposed to be. I tried to mount and e2fsk, but both processes seem to be extremely unhappy that the device size doesn't match the size implied by the file system geometry.
I considered hacking the superblock to manually reduce the size, but I figure that wouldn't work because there would then be more group descriptor blocks than it would expect after the superblocks. I might try doing that and compensating by incrementing the "reserve block count" to compensate. Alternatively, if there is some way to make the file appear to be the expected size with nothing but zeroes after the end of the actual data, maybe I could mount it and not get any errors until I cause the kernel to read past the true end of the file.
I tried installing F14 and F15 but display resulted in freezing. The display would work upto "Check Media/Skip Test" for media during installation and the system freezes immediately after that. So I did a VNC installation from another system. But the initiation of X would always result in hanging of the box. After googling and trying various solutions, I found a ray of hope in one solution which suggested adding "vesafb:mtrr,ywrap vga=0x318" to the kernel arguments. This resulted in displaying successfully the boot-time flash (Fedora logo being filled with white color) during booting. But "startx" or "inittab 5" result in hanging of the system.
The following is the relevant information: I see 5 monitors and 5 cards!

I have installed Fedora 13 lately, however its architecture is i686... i want to install the GNU C Compiler (both c and c++)..... now i searched for i686 architecture gcc but most of them are not compiled.. and are archives e.g., gcc-4.4.1.tar..... Also, some RPMs say about dependencies. Is there a simpler solution?
How to install Gcc, i dont have any compiler in Fedora even cc is not there!! I installed fedora from a live cd i got with the Digit Magazine!
I am not very new to LINUX. I was using UBUNTU for the last 1 year and I have switched to Redhat now because I am thinking of taking a RHCE certification now. Actually the problem is that I am unable to install RHEL 5.2 i386 on my i686 machine, I have bought it recently 1 week ago. I tried to use the boot parameter "linux noprobe" then it said drivers not found after 2 steps when it loads drivers.
When I tried to make a GUI install it hanged after "loading /sbin/loader" and said "kernel panic - not syncing". And when I tried to make a text install it said hanged agin after "loading /sbin/loader" and said something like "Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP". If drivers are needed then when can I get those and how can I install those drivers? here is my hardware information as "lspci" says:

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5
previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal
After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data
By doing that
1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.
2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.
Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)
A processor is very important to me and I'm curious what processor to get for a new computer build. I will be using Ubuntu for most things except iTunes, HD movies, and a few low spec requiring games on Win 7. I am building it as right now I have a half year old netbook that can do most things just fails at game play and movies but it's alright. And I have a desktop with just Ubuntu that's about the same quality but 8 years old. I want to build a computer that will be very fast for the next 4 years enough to get me to college and buy a nice laptop. I am on a small budget of around 500- 750 dollars. I have most things picked out but processor has me stumped. To me processor is a bit tricky to replace and I'd rather get a higher-end one to start and stick with that than buy another CPU two years down the road.
I don't mind upgrading RAM, GPU, and or even the HDD at a later point but I want to get the CPU as close to perfect as possible. First I heard AMD processors tend to be a bit hot. I was wondering what cooler is $50 or less that does a great job at cooling a AMD AM3 socket CPU. I do plan to overclock a very small bit perhaps up to .3 GHz plus max. First I was thinking a nice core i5 at $200 and never really checked anything else. Then, I was thinking a hexa-core at 2.8 GHz I think but decided too much and didn't need six cores. The AMD socket type also supported USB 3.0 which I instantly fell in love with. Then I found a quad core Phenom II x4 black edition at 3.20 GHz for around $160.I liked the core unlocker and it looked incredible. Now I'm rethinking a bit again.
I found a dual-core that is same thing as the other AMD one above except well only two cores. I think that would do me fine I'd I'd save $60 by getting 2 less cores. With the things I use a computer for (Ubuntu, Win7, HD quality playback, minor gaming like Runescape, and small multitasking like openoffice a browser or two and perhaps some pictures, game or movie.) I also want to be able to do this quickly for the next 4 years without a hiccup or at least to a minimum if possible. I really don't want to upgrade CPU once I get that bad boy in there. I also want it ready for higher versions of Windows like Windows 8 is supposedly coming sometime in 2012 I've heard. I just want the best CPU to be fast and efficient, run cool, and work well for me for the next 4 years.
I'm sure this has been covered somewhere before, but I couldn't find anything and so figured I would post here. I have been using Linux OSes for the past couple of years and also using GCC/G++ for application development. However, I have almost always been on x86 systems and never gained much experience using the wide range of optimization options available.
My question is, if I do not specify the -march=PROCTYPE option, will GCC still be able to detect the current architecture and build the code accordingly? I primarily ask this because I am working with an x86_64 system, and specifying -march=x86_64 in my makefiles generates errors about it being an unknown processor type, even though the CPU and OS are X86_64. I know this sounds like a newbie question, but it's just ground I've never had to cover before until now.
I purchased an older Dell (p4 1.8G 256M) just to run some low demand programs. They don't require a GUI - just ssh/cli type of access. will be a server type - no kb or monitor. Can someone give me some pointers where to start at? I've never done a Debian install - the install process may address these questions - but figured I would throw it out here. I've used Ubuntu for several years now but I doubt that it would be the best distro for a legacy system....
When I install wine the add/remove program wants to install both 86_64 and i686 files. I have the x86_64 version of Fedora 14. I am having problems with counterstrike and have installed it using Wine, have noted problems when both types of files are installed.
I would like to have Fedora set up just right but as with all Linux distros, am having trouble keeping my head above water with fc14. I have success up to a point and then want to go back to Windows for its simplicity. Just this wine problem
I want to build a PXE boot server on rhel5/centos5 from which all type of OS(Linux distros,Windows - xp,vista,7) these can be installed on any client on my LAN . I have tried it for some linux distros with TFTP ,but unable to add windows.
Can I use my all-in-one printer with LINUX Operating System? KODAK All-in-One Printers are designed to to work with WINDOWS XP, WINDOWS VISTA, WINDOWS 7 Operating Systems and with MAC OS. Because of its open-source nature, LINUX OS requires a complex, dedicated support team. LINUX OS represents a very small percentage of installed operating systems in the U.S. As a result, costs for ongoing support and a dedicated support team are not justified at this time.
As Kodak continues to launch products, and as updates are made to LINUX OS, launching LINUX Drivers would require ongoing support and driver updates to Kodak's software. Customer support teams are focusing efforts on current issues concerning the more prevalent WINDOWS and MAC OS; adding support for LINUX OS would take resources away from these issues. Compatibility information for KODAK All-in-One Printers is printed on the retail package so that our customers can be aware of the printer's hardware and software requirements at the time or purchase. For more information about specifications and compatibility, visit KODAK All-in-One Printers.
I see (been using Inkscape for couple of weeks now) that there are features that I want to harness in Inkscape 0.47. I have 0.46 on Ubuntu 9.04 in the "Ubuntu Ultimate flavour".Oh by the way, is 10.04 stable? I read that 9.10 wasn't as stable cause of new programs and software and stuff that I have no clue about (I just want linux to be my stable OS in the back ground that doesn't require to much tinkering from me). And having asked that, can I upgrade to 10.04 via an installation disk? I usually get my OS disks from...well, wont say there name otherwise I might be accused of advertising. (downloading installations is expansive with a 3G card until I get ADSL).
I've been trying to compile Inkscape 0.47 and I'm impressed how difficult this process is, I need 0.47, some files made with it (in a Mac) doesn't show good in 0.46, besides compiling, is there a easyway to install it on openSUSE 11.2?
Last nights upgrade of java-1.6.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206.fc13.i686 and java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168.fc13.i686 prevent the loading of Ameritrades Command Center.Downgrading to version 22.214.171.124-37 fixes the problem. I'll post the bugzilla number as soon as I get the chance to file it.
I am trying to upgrade my RHEL5 kernel.What file should i download for my i686 system.Googling gives a number of options...of which I feel ovzkernel-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5.i686.rpm is the right one for me?Is it the latest stable kernel version...and how to install it?
So I puts my shinny new F12 install on my new computer. It's a little climb for me but for the most part easier then some of the other F's that I have tried to install.
One problem I have right now is my inkscape crashes as soon as I try to put some text on a page. I tried the automatic bug report thingy but it complained about me not having a log in. inksacpe is really becoming a very important application for me, I have been trying to shy away from the Windows programs I have been using.
I must say, F12 seems to really be advancing the fedora project into a nice desktop system.
Trying to install SW 13.1 (on DVD) on the following system: M/B Intel: DX38BT Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 - 2.66GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB, Socket 775 Memory Corsair Dual Channel 8192MB PC10600 DDR3 1333MHz Memory (4x2048MB) Graphics Diamond Radeon HD 3850 Video Card - Viper, 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0 P/S Ultra 1000W
My goal is to install the i386 build on one partition and the 64-bit build on another. I have been away from Linux for a while and am sick to death of Win7, want to come home. :-}
Booted on i386 side of DVD, system freezes after a couple of lines that start with ATA2. Does not respond to 3 finger salute, ctrl-c, nothing. Have to press reset. I have tried both huge.s and hugesmp.s kernels
Booted on 64-bit side, comes up fine. I performed the install, selected for automatic lilo install. Lilo install hung but I was able to reboot. I booted off the 64-bit side again, entered the following: huge.s root=/dev/sde3 rdinit= ro It booted fully to the login prompt but the keyboard does not work, no input.
