Fedora X86/64bit :: Possible To Keep X64 Instalation PURE 64 Bit
Jan 25, 2010
I'm very new to Fedora ( i want to install it again on my PC ) but i have a small question before i proceed.Is it possible to keep a x64 instalation PURE 64 bit ?I mean here, will fedore try to install a 32 bit library ?? or ONLY if i need them ?Because for example openSuSe will install 32 bit libraries right from the start
This create a new error. 421 Unable to read the indexed puredb file (or old format detected) - Try pure-pw mkdb I am getting a feeling this is getting from bad to worse. I attempted to remove pure-ftpd and pureadmin to start over again. However, it appears I cannot remove everything. I attempted the following:
apt-get remove pure-ftpd pureadmin I am not sure what this really does because I can still see the folder /etc/pure-ftpd and I cannot remove it. I could not use rm /etc/pure-ftpd because the system said it was not empty. I also tried sudo aptitude remove pure-ftpd pureadmin . Again I cannot completely remove the folder. How do I completely remove pure-ftpd and pure admin and all databases, files and folders so I have a fresh system ready to start the install again?
I have set up pure-authd and pure-ftpd. They are both running, I have created the socket etc.
In my authentication module (a php script) for testing purposes I have done a vardump in to a file, and have realised that pure-authd is not passing on any variables (username, password of the current person trying to log in via ftp) to the PHP script.
I am sure the authentication module is working (have tested it vigorously on the command line), but after 10 hours wondering why it wouldnt work and messing about with the script, I have realised that the variables were never even getting in to the script in the first place!
I am running the processes such as this:
Everything seems as if it is working other than this. For instance, when testing the setup with a very basic auth module which doesnt require a username or password (the basic module just passes "auth_ok:1" to pure-ftpd and the user is then logged in), I can log in to the FTP server fine.
But like I say, a vardump ($argv) on my proper PHP authentication script would suggest that no username or password are being passed to it.
I am having problems with the welcome message regarding pure-ftp, this is on Fedora 10. Pure FTP just doesnt show any ability to change the default message, its rubbish at its default gives out some details of what I am running (security risk in itself). Is there any means of being able to make a custom message?
I am running an FTP server using Pure-FTPD which was a migration from an OS-X workstation to Fedora 10 - VMware esxi.
This was done for various reasons but the reason for choosing the Pure-FTPD app was due to an easier migration.
The system has been migrated for about a month and works very well. I installed it on the server using yum install pure-ftpd, configured it and imported all the accounts [about 150 accounts] so this is all fab. however we now want to see if we can get an upload notification.
This has lead me to look at the uploadscript option in pure-ftpd. we use virtual users and the pure-pw file.
When we set the directive
The ftp server hangs, I cant seem to see how to get this to work, from my investigation I think the issue is that the yum install is not building the app " --with-uploadscript " i have tried to do a hand install on a test Fedora 10 VM, I downloaded pure-ftpd-1.0.27.tar.gz and unpacked it, did a ./configure --with uploadscript then a make and make install, nothing reports any errors but it doesnt seem to install anything. I can start the server from a command line but there are no config directories ? and even after creating a new user and a passwd-mkdb i cant log in to the server. but that most likely as i dont have a full configuration. but i can t find where to put the configuration files.
Downloaded from here: [URL] then ,it is 32-bit and I need to know what all 32-bit libs are needed as dependency for skype to work. I am on Gnome Fedora and purposefully selected static version of skype to prevent installation of libqt4.
I just bought sony vaio laptop(EB16) couple of days before.I had window 7 OS. Two days before i downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD & installed in my PC.Everything is working fine except when i play any video or audio file such as .avi, .mp3 from any player such as vlc player, movie player ,xine etc , i don't get any sound.I tried to search this problem in internet but still i am not able to resolve this problem.
Can anyone get the website below to work correctly with Firefox 3.5 and F11 64bit?[URL]...All I see is the background scrolling slowly and jerkily, none of the buttons at the bottom work. Reboot into Windows 7 and IE8: the same site is fast, smooth, the buttons work and the product details appear correctly in the centre of the screen.
Kde does not start after slackware 13.0 instalation. Mouse just stop and the computer freeze. When I type startx Kde try to start, but everything stop. Does anybody know what could be this ? What log should I look ?
The ?search engine thing 'strigi' is apparently slowing the computer down as it builds its index. The index is already up to about 2GB. This indexing has stared automatically after a new installation of Squeeze. The index is still being built a couple of days after the install. Assume the thing it's indexing is about 167 GB.
Should strigi be left to do its thing, or stopped? If so how?
Edit: now working, thanks very much Leigh and Dangermouse.
Anyone successfully installed AIR and iPlayer on F11?
I've switched to 32 bit Adobe flash, tried Autoten for AIR and Dangermouse's advice for iPlayer: url.html but it's not working, and trying to install AIR from url results in an endless busy downloading graphic .
I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: url.html and can't see them either as installed or available.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 which came with Windows XP. I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on the laptop so it can dual boot but I can't connect to the internet.I have a dynamic IP allocated by my broadband service provider which I access by a wired Netgear DM111P router (not cable). It still works fine when booting up windows.I've read through lots of posts by others trying to find a solution as the 9.10 install has just been done and I've not changed anything.
My tentative assessment is the laptop, when running Ubuntu, is not communicating with the router as there seems to be no IP address allocated by the router.
I have Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 / 2 GHz processor. i just upgraded my system with 4 memory sticks i.e. 7GB of RAM due to my requirements. Now the issue that i am facing is that my 32bit fedora system does not showing and suppoting more than 3.XX gigs of RAM when i consult "/proc/meminfo", "free -m" and "top". Now i have done two thing, first i have installed a PAE version of kernel. In result of this my system become two slow with the following error at startup. Error: starting udev: wait timeout. will continue in the background <Failed> Secondly, i installed a 64bit version of Fedora 10 but still it showing not more than 3GB of memory. Also a kernel bug system alerts me of not supporting more than 3gigs of RAM and ask me to send that bug to[URL]
i was install wine with the soft ware center when my computer crashed, now i cant uninstall it or cointinue the installation or unistall, when i do try to unistall i press the unistall icon nothing happens. when i go into the software center to try and reinstall it says waiting for other software managers to quit,
I have an old pentium 4 with an ati card agp. 320mb ram. just for testing. i followed all the screen instruction and everything was installing well. then it say , remove cd and press enter to restart. i did. now it boot up fine , but at the end just a blank screen.
I have a double problem here. I had a problem with ubuntu which I more or less took care of but at the loss of much information but that is neither here nor there. The problem has to do with the here and now. I purchased a ubuntu 10.04 LTS CD. I installed it and partitioned it with my win xp. All seemed to go good but the problems seem to arrive when I booted to the other partition side.
I am able to select the windows xp side and hit enter and and boot to xp. However when I wanted to go to the ubuntu side of things this is where the problems happens. I click enter the ubuntu selection and this error shows up."Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt. <windows root> system32hal.dllPlease re-install a copy of the above file."
The only way I can of getting to the ubuntu side is by inserting the ubuntu cd into the cd/dvd drive. However when I do I get this message."Installation Failed.The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now run so you may investigate the problem or try installing again."I am hoping that someone here will be able to assist me in finding an solution to my dilemma.
I am booting a computer with the server edition and I cannot even navigate the language menu. The keyboard works as I can access the BIOS and if I put in a new Keyboard, It acts exactly the same way. What are my options, If I boot with a live CD of the desktop edition, is there a way that I install the server from it? I dont want the GUI, I am learning so, I want it raw and as it should be if installed with the cd.
I'm trying to install ubuntu 9.10 on a new Dell studio 1535. Since I have 4GB of RAM I went with the 64bit version. I can get to the menu where I select to check disk, install, try without changing etc... However when I tried to check the disc integrity I saw the Ubuntu logo for about ten minutes and then let it sit for another 20 minutes, and all I saw was a blank screen. I then tried making another CD and came up with the same results. I then tried to install and at first it was like before, but then i started getting different error messages the majority had the form: [ 771.744543] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 337015another looked like:[ 1244.029631] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0 sector 673592a few said something about SQUASHFS.I have tried three different CD's I looked at the hash and they matched up so the file is fine. I downloaded the 32bit version and I'm going to try that just to see if it works.
