Debian :: Apt-get Updates Waste Time Requiring Re-scanning Dvds

Mar 6, 2011

I have the eight Debian dvds listed in my sources.list, along with security, nonfree, and multimedia repositories. It does this for all eight dvds, re-scanning them for the update.These dvds have already been scanned (from the apt-cdrom add command). New updates are NOT going to suddenly appear on these already scanned dvds, so this is a completely unnecessary endeavour.Is there a way to stop this?It didn't happen with Lenny, and I'd like to stop it with Squeeze.

Fedora :: Safe To Use I686 And X64 Versions Of Same Package At Same Time?

Nov 11, 2009

Could using i686 and x64 versions of same package introduce problems later? Currently my system is 64bit , but some apps require i686 versions of already installed x64 packages.

Ubuntu :: Reporting Bugs On Launchpad A Waste Of Time Because 9/10 The Answer Is "upstream"?

Sep 30, 2010

The last few bugs I have reported on launchpad have met the response "submit it upstream". What's the point of submitting bugs on launchpad if the bug has to be reported again upstream anyway? Why not just report upstream in the first place and forget launchpad?

It seems like unnecessary duplication of effort. So can anyone give me some genuine reasons to bother reporting in launchpad?

Fedora :: F12 Two Versions On Boot - Cannot Launch Firefox

Dec 21, 2009

I installed f12 few days back. A pop up came which mentioned '336 new updates available' and I opted 'install only security updates'.

Now in the boot screen 3 options come instead of 2:
1. Fedora
2. Fedora
3. Windows

I am able to boot into both versions of fedora, but I cannot launch firefox it says-'your version of SQlite is too old and the application cannot run'. How do I correct the screw up. Should I re-install the whole thing....? why is it showing as 2 versions....? I installed yumex recently, is it the reason.....?

Fedora :: Two Versions Of Flash In Firefox And Keep The Scrollbars At The Side And Bottom?

Feb 14, 2010

No matter how many times I update or install new flash plugins in firefox, I always wind up with 2 versions of the 'Shockwave Flash' plugin. The first is the prevous version of Adobe, the second is the current version of either Adobe, Gnash or Swfdec. I use yum to keep my packages in synch. When a new version of Adobe comes though, it erases the older version of the currently installed plugin, keeps the newer currently installed version, and installs itself as the new version, both versions enabled.

Hope that paragraph makes sense to you, it gave me a headache to write. Further, they must both be enabled for any of them to work, and which ever I use the video is slow, choppy and prone to pausing for no apparent reason. The CPU usage is always pegged to the roof and the sound is often out of synch.

What I'm wondering is whether or not this is the normal situation or if I'm doing something wrong? I've been playing with Ubuntu and have noticed that only one version installs at one time, and the video playback is much better, if still not exactly smooth.

how to keep the scrollbars at the side and bottom of Firefox a contant width? They seem to change with the Full Zoom Level of NoSquint, which is a bit of a pain.

Slackware :: 13 And The Recent Firefox Vulnerability?

Mar 24, 2010

As you might have heard, a recent critical vulnerability was discovered in Firefox 3.6.Any word on a Slackware patch coming soon? I'd prefer to use a Slackware package rather than the actual Mozilla release, but I also don't like browsing the web with a remote code execution bug in my browser.Or is Slackware unaffected by this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Recent Update Broke Firefox / Reinstall It?

Apr 8, 2011

RE: Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 64bit Updates from 2-3 days ago.

Since then, Firefox starts and runs fine the first time. Close it down and later try to restart, error says that Firefox is already using that profile and will need to quit it before proceeding.

System Monitor then shows that firefox and firefox-bin are still loaded (although nothing in the gnome app tray at bottom of screen). Jill those 2 processes and Firefox loads normally.

Should I wait this out and see if later updates cure this? Reinstall Firefox? Submit a report to launchpad?

Ubuntu :: Is TraceMonkey Used In 64-bit Versions Of Firefox

Apr 15, 2010

I've from different sources that the TraceMonkey JS engine is available:

1) in 32-bit Fx 3.5+ and 64-bit Fx 3.6+

2) only in 32-bit Fx 3.5+ (and 64-bit nigthly builds)

3) in both 32- and 64-bit Fx 3.5+ etc. I've heard that to run TM one has to have the entry javascript.options.jit.content set to true - I have this entry and it is set to true by default (and I use 64-bit Fx 3.5).

Fedora :: Firefox Crashing All Time

Dec 20, 2010

Recently firefox has been crashing on me like crazy. I'm on Fedora 14 with the latest repo firefox version. Running firefox with the "-safe" flag doesn't help nor did reinstalling firefox using "yum reinstall firefox". According to ABRT every crash is due to: "Process /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)". When run from root in terminal via "sudo firefox" with and without "-safe" after crashing the message returned to terminal reads: "/usr/lib/firefox-3.6/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 2*** Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$prog" ${1+"$@"}". The stars after 2 (I.e. "2***") are to indicate different numbers. On one run they were "2406" and on another "2538". Recently, in all instances firefox crashes right after attempting to navigate to a website (I've tried many - there is no correlation between what website I go to and if it crashes). Previously, when firefox was crashing less frequently, it occurred intermittently and wasn't correlated to any action I took.

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox 3.6 'Namoroka' Stopped Working After Recent Update

Feb 25, 2010

Firefox 3.6 "Namoroka" stopped working after a recent update. Clicking on my panel launcher or the launcher in the applications menu does nothing. I even tried starting Firefox from the terminal and got an error message: "(firefox-bin:3592): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times", whatever that means.I would be willing to rip out Firefox and start all over again but I don't know how to remove the 3.6 version. I couldn't find a method in the Software Center for doing that graphically.

Fedora :: Try To Go Back To Add The Bug Report To This Post, Firefox Crashes, Every Single Time?

Jul 7, 2010

I'm running F 13 and today's updates included updates to Xorg, so I logged out and back in to let them take effect. Ever since then, Firefox has been repeatedly crashing, especially on certain sites. I managed to get the crash reporting tool to report it to Bugzilla, but when I try to go back to add the bug report to this post, Firefox crashes, every single time. Has anybody else found this? If somebody can get to bugzilla.redhat.com and find the report (The email address I use there is joe@zeff.us if it helps.) I'd appreciate having it added as a response to this, so that others can find it and,

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Select Relevant Patches

Oct 2, 2010

Near the end of the install, a panel lists dozens of patches, some categorized as "Security", others as "Recommended", each preceded by a checkbox. I started to check all of the patches, but then noticed that the checks were bringing in software I had not requested -- e.g., checking an emacs patch brought in emacs. Rather than bring in all of this additional software, I left all patches unchecked. Now I need to know how I can go back and apply only the patches that pertain to software that I have actually installed.

I'd also like to know whether there is some way to limit the install program panel to relevant patches only.

Ubuntu :: Delete Folders Or Files On NTFS Partition Not A Option To Move To Waste Basket

Nov 24, 2010

10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?

Ubuntu :: Difference Between LTS Versions And Other Versions?

Jun 30, 2011

I'm not to clear on the difference between LTS versions and other versions, but think I may want to go with LTS. Can someone tell me if my thinking is correct given the following situation: I have some very cool, but very expensive software installed with a group license from my school, a school which I am not going to be attending for too much longer. So I want to go as long as possible without reinstalling Ubuntu, because once the product is licensed it will be licensed until I reinstall Ubuntu (or I uninstall the program). So I think this is going to require me keep the Ubuntu version I install as long as possible.

So in this case, should I go with 10.04LTS or should I just install Natty Narwhal and keep that as long as possible? It looks like 10.04LTS will be "supported" longer, but I'm not exactly clear on all that "supported" entails. Presumable it means security and software updates will be available for 10.04LTS for much longer than 11.x versions? So I'm thinking I should go with 10.04LTS

Is my thinking correct in going with 10.04LTS? Edit: It was pointed out that this would be against my contractual agreements. Which I suppose is probably true.

Fedora :: Recent Kernel Update Won't Boot ?

Aug 10, 2009

The girlfriend did an update a few nights ago. Besides removing her NVidia drivers, it also installed kernel version

That kernel was causing problems. Now it won't boot at all. How do we remove that kernel altogether?

If we remove it, would simply doing another update from the previous (still working) kernel just try to reinstall that bad kernel?

Fedora :: After Recent Update Of F11 Qjackctl Not Working

Dec 4, 2009

Yesterday I ran an update on my Acer Aspire One, which I operate under Fedora11. Amongst the updates was also an update for Qjackctl and the jack audio connection kit. After the update I could not start Qjackctl anymore and all my possibilities with rosegarden and my USB keyboard and fluidsynth were gone. I restored to the system before update ran the update again excluding the two packages concerning jack. Perfect, it works again. So it seems that there is a bug inbedded in the update. By the way, I am quite happy with Qjackctl as the connection tool between my various music making options, which are not very fancy, but I enjoy them. Despite comments in other parts of this forum Qjackctl works very well on the Atom based AAO. I have a kind of protocol of the failure of qjackctl and what I did. I can make that available if necessary

Fedora :: Missing Nvidia.ko After Recent Update

Sep 11, 2010

When I install the most recent Linux Kernel: kernel- (i686) The installation process removes: Linux Kernel: kernel- (i686) Plus NVIDIA: kmod-nvidia- (i686)

This results in Nvidia.ko not being found during the subsequent restart - the remove activity deletes it from the system. Prior to this activity Nvidia.ko is found in: /lib/modules/ Without Nvidia.ko the display is set to 800x600 resolution. This is the first time I have encountered this problem with a Fedora Linux Kernel update. Will this problem be fixed in a subsequent update, if so when? If not fixed, where do we find the proper Nvidia.ko module? Also, how do you recommend we install it?
