Ubuntu :: Moving Buttons To Left - Keep Moving Back

Mar 27, 2011

I like the buttons on the left. I'm running 10.04 & I know how to move them. The problem is that changing themes will move them back right. OK, if the new theme has them on the right that's OK. But going back to the other theme doesn't change them back. They don't seem to be controlled by the theme, or I'm just not doing it right.

Ubuntu :: Moving Files In Terminal \ Moving Files That Have Root Permissions?

Mar 4, 2010

I have limited experience in terminal, but let me first explain what I am trying to do to see if there is some easier way to do it. Basically I want to change the skin in aMSN. I downloaded the new skin but am unable to unzip or move it without /root permissions. I don't know how to acquire this without being in terminal. So I figured there had to be some way to go into the terminal and use it to move the unzipped folder from the desktop to the aMSN skins folder.

Fedora :: Moving From 32-bit To 64-bit With A New Motherboard

Mar 17, 2011

I am currently running Fedora 14 on a 32-bit AMD XP motherboard. My plan is to replace the motherboard w/an AMD 64-bit (multicore, prob'ly) version (most likely w/a different h/w architecture) and I'd like to make sure my current applications and configuration (if that makes any sense) are moved en masse to the 64-bit version.

Is there an easy way to do this? What are my "gotchas"?

Fedora :: Moving /usr To A New Partition

Jul 31, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 as a KVM guest on a CentOS host. I decided to give preupgrade-cli a shot to get Fedora 15.

After reboot, I got a not enough free space error, so I decided to add another virtual drive and move /usr to it.

The partition on the new drive is ext4 formatted (just like my / partition)


Then I mounted the new partition on /newusr, and copied the files using cp and rsync



I also tried rsync without the HAX options, same results.

I then changed my /etc/fstab to reflect the new /usr


Then I reboot and watch the booting process, it fails first at loading NetworkManager, then elsewhere, and system stops. Of course I could revert back using a live CD and try all the other options, but nothing works for me.

There is an error in /var/log/boot.log, but I don't think it is related, as it shows when booting normally as well.

Fedora :: Moving System To Another Harddisc?

Jan 18, 2010

i have an fedora system, with no separate /boot partition. there is only one big / partition. I think this is the reason that preupgrade does not work. So I decided to build an own /boot partition. Could anyone give me a hint how I could do this easily? My idea is:

get a second hard disc and format this with 2 partitions (/boot and /)dd the partition1 to the new one.

is this a nice idea? my only problem is that my second hard disc is smaller then the current one. but the current one is not filled up total. but I can not dd to a smaller partition or? is it possible to boot with an live-cd an copy the partition with the cp command?

Fedora :: Moving Toolbar Taskbar?

Feb 3, 2011

I'm a recent convert from Ubuntu (my company uses Juniper VPN and FedoraRHEL is the only certified OS for the client) and I'm having an issue that I can't seem to find the answer to.I installed Fedora 14 and have dual monitors running on a GeForce 8500 GT with one DVI and one VGA connection. VGA is the left monitor, DVI is on the right. After install, Fedora was defaulting to the DVI (right) monitor as the primary, so I used the Monitors utility to rearrange them so they went left to right. I even selected the left (VGA) monitor as the primary. I was hoping that the top and bottom bars would follow.My issue is that both the launch bar on the top, and the task bar on the bottom are still on the right-hand screen, and I can't for the life of me figure out how in the heck to get them both over to the left-hand screen. Am I missing something horribly obvious?

Fedora :: Moving Install To A New Disk?

Mar 25, 2011

Currently, my disk layout is as follows:


/boot /dev/sda1
/ /dev/sda5
windows /dev/sda3
/home /dev/sda4
/dev/sda2 is currently an extended partition.

I purchased a small SSD, and I'd like to move most of the root partition and my home directory over to it. Assuming the new drive is /dev/sdb, my desired layout is this:


/boot /dev/sda1
windows /dev/sda3
/data /dev/sda4


What's the best way to go about this with minimal downtime? Second, what configuration files would I need to update?

Fedora :: Moving Files Between Folders

May 14, 2011

I feel like this is probably a dumb question but regardless, I don't know the answer and my eyes will start bleeding if I keep trying anymore. How do you move files between folders? Dolphin's layout (unless I'm not figuring it out, which is probably the case) doesn't seem to let you drag from one folder to another and there's no other pane to see another folder to drag to.I have an mp3 file in my download folder that I want to move to my music folder but I can't get it to move.

Fedora :: Files Moving Themselves Back Again?

This happens in nautilus, gnome-commander, or even at the command line. See the following output. The volume is NTFS, but I have ntfs-3g installed, and i've never had this problem before with NTFS volumes.

Fedora :: Moving /home To Its Own Logical Drive?

Jul 15, 2009

F-10 default installation is /swat /boot and the rest /

Many on this site recommend setting up separate partitions for /home

Does making a separate logical volume and putting /home in it do the same in allowing one to do an install to the original logical volume without affecting /home?

If it does, how does one get the 2nd LV recognized in the file system?

Fedora Hardware :: Moving From ATI To NDivia Card?

Jan 28, 2010

I am currently running Fedora 11 in a box with ATI x1650 graphic card, but I am planning the installed hard drive to another box with nDivia GeForce 6150 card. Do you think Fedora will detect the new card and install its driver? I don't mind getting a driver and installing myself as long as I can log on to Fedodra with a generic graphic driver. What difficulty do you think I will run into initially?

Fedora :: Moving An LVM Based Virtual Machine

Jul 28, 2010

I'm hoping this is the right sub-forum, if not please move this post. My question is, how would I go about moving an LVM based virtual machine to a different host? Can I just use dd to copy the entire logical volume to a file, move the file to the other host, then again use dd to copy the file onto a newly created logical volume? I'm using KVM by the way.

Fedora :: Not Moving Mouse Pauses Screen?

Mar 20, 2011

When I don't move my mouse, my screen pauses and stops doing anything. I constantly have to move my mouse to refresh what is on the screen. For example, if there is a video on the screen, the video will stop and glitch up if I am not touching the trackpad to make the cursor move around the screen. The second I start to move the cursor on the screen, however, the video plays again. Why?!

Fedora :: Moving From 32bit To 64bit Kernel

Aug 12, 2011

I have been running F14 as a 32-bit system (original m/b was 32-bit). Now the system is on a 64-bit dual-core processor board and I'd like to change from the 32-bit kernel to 64-bit. I downloaded a 64-bit kernel (kernel- and attempted to install it. It won't install and Package Installer returns a message of the sort that says this file "has incompatible architecture.

Valid architectures are ['athlon', 'i686', 'i586', 'i486'....]". My processor is an Athlon 64 x2. Is it possible to do what I want to do (I only want the kernel at the moment)? Is there some Fedora file I need to modify to allow the system to install the 64-bit kernel for this m/b? Do I need another file (or files) installed before I install the kernel?

Fedora Installation :: Moving - Boot To A Separate Partition ?

Apr 23, 2009

Trying to dual-boot OpenSolaris and FC10 is difficult because Solaris grub doesn't know about ext3 and Fedora grub doesn't know about ZFS. I was able to rescue my FC10 installation by creating a new FAT16 partition and restoring /boot to it from a dump, and then doing a grub setup to it. A complication is that anaconda doesn't seem to be able to find /dev/md0 (both the Solaris and FC10 installs use mirrored disks).

This process moved the FC10 ext3 partition from /dev/sda3 to /dev/sda4, but the other half of the mirror is still /dev/sdb3.

When I boot FC10 I get a "can't load image" error from grub, but it still loads FC10 successfully. It makes no difference if menu.1st/grub.conf has "root (hd0,1)" (the FAT16 partition) or "root (hd0,3)" (the FC10 ext3 partition).

If a future yum update were to try to install a new kernel, my FAT16 partition would not be updated. It seems to me both these problems might be solved if I could move /boot from /dev/md0 to /dev/sda2 (/dev/sda2 is the FAT16 partition).

Rather than go through yet another install, would the following work?

from FC10, move /boot to (say) /boot.0
mkdir /boot
edit fstab to include "mount /dev/sda2 /boot"

If I try this and it doesn't work, I can't see any way to undo it since anaconda doesn't seem to be able to mount /dev/md0. If a grub guru sees this, perhaps they could suggest a better alternative, or if not, whether this will work or not.

Additionally, although there are two alternatives in menu.1st/grub.conf, grub doesn't display a menu - it goes directly to boot. Any idea why? I suppose this might be a Solaris stage1 grub problem...

Since FAT16 doesn't support links, it isn't possible to link grub.conf to menu.1st. Are they both required?

Fedora :: Partitioning Task - Moving Unallocated From Extended

Jan 19, 2010

I would like to ask you for an opinion. These are my current partitions:

/dev/sda1 ext3 200MB /boot
/dev/sda2 ext4 39.06GB /
/dev/sda3 swap 3.91GB
unallocated 2.25MB
/dev/sda4 extended /home
--------> unallocated 24.41GB
--------> /dev/sda5 ext4 165,30GB

I need to create a NTFS partition. However Windows installer doesn't see 'unallocated' under /dev/sda4. I do not want to touch /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sda5. I also need swap. Is there any chance I can move 'unallocated' under /dev/sda4 from extended and recreate it as a primary partition?

Fedora :: F12 (32bit) Installation - No Sound But Equalizer Moving

Feb 12, 2010

I just installed Fedora12 32bit and I have no sound. I've tried reinstalling and updating PulseAudio, but I don't know if it's just my settings or my drivers or what. (And no, it's not muted).

O/S information:
[Darksun@darksun ~]$ uname -a
Linux darksun #1 SMP Sat Nov 7 21:41:45 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Hardware Information:
[Darksun@darksun ~]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: nVidia Corporation C55 Host Bridge (rev a2)
00:00.1 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1)
00:00.2 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1)
00:00.3 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1)
00:00.4 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1)

00:00.6 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1)
00:00.7 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C55 Memory Controller (rev a1) .....

Aside from not having sound, my players are acting funny. If I go to load, say, an MP3 into XMMS, it only attempts to play a song for 1 second and then stops. (no sound comes out, but I can see the equalizer moving for a second like its' trying).

Fedora :: Boot Hangs After Moving Partition In GParted

Mar 25, 2011

I moved my /var partition using Gparted Live CD version 0.8.0-3. Everything went fine. But when I boot my Fedora 14, I get error message (something like "name_count maxed, losing inode data"). Maybe there are other error messages as well, but they scroll away very quickly. Is there any way to slow them down?

But the boot hangs after starting udev and setting host name to localhost.localdomain. It just hangs there. If I press the [Caps Lock] key, it toggles the Caps Lock LED. If I boot the installation DVD in Rescue mode, it mounts all partitions without problems, and the data is there.

Fedora :: FC14/gnome Panel Keeps Moving To Top Of Desktop

May 23, 2011

On FC14/gnome I created a panel on the bottom of the desktop. After reboot the panel shows up on the top of the desktop. The panel cannot be moved to the bottom. Can go into panel "properties" and under "Orientation" selecting "Bottom" but after a second the botton switches back to "Top" without moving the panel.

The workaround was to create a new panel on the bottom, set it up, then delete the old panel from the top. When the machine is rebooted the panel goes back to the top. Seems like a basic gnome panel bug.

Installation :: Which File Stops A Red Hat (or Fedora) From Moving To Another Partition

May 1, 2010

I have an obsession of packing a large number of distros into one hard disk. Many distro installers do not like it even though their kernels can support higher number partitions. Typically an installer, say from a Debian family, would freeze when checking a hard disk that has more than 15 partitions. However if I put the same distro on a hard disk with less than 16 partition the installer will be very happy to install. I then copy the distro back to the original disk to a different partition, change the boot loader setting and fstab and the new distro will be happily working in the next hard disk that has 57 partitions.

This scheme works for any distro until recently Fedora refuses the move. I didn't investigate the cause then but I have just come up against a brick wall with the Red Hat Enterrise Linux 6. It was one out of the 4 I just moved. The others are operating happily. The RHEL will boot to a Grub screen. When I select the user account and type in the password it just refreshes the screen as though the password could not be accepted. I can boot up another Linux, mount the RHEL partition, change root to it and change my normal user password. Better still why don't I create a new user and another password.

Same result. I could not pass the log in screen with revised password or from a new account which got displayed. How about a little trick told by Justlinux library file --> to alter the run level. So I mounted the RHEL partition, changed root to it, edited the /etc/inittab and amended the run level from 5 (for X desktop) to 1 (single user - terminal mode). RHEL now boots to a root terminal! Success in a sense that my RHEL boots as expected and there was never a problem with booting. However newer Linux do not permit root log on to the desktop so I cannot check the log in with the ordinary user account to X. After I fiddled with the various files/parameters related to the gdm and X still no joy so I cut my loss and post the question here.

I don't exactly like this, main reason being, if the system (or HDD) crashes, I'll end up with another several hours of down time..
