General :: Can't Make Boot File From Slackware ISO / Resolve It?

Apr 12, 2011

As part of instructions from Slackware Installation site, I am trying to make a boot file from the ISO (10.2VER). The command given: 'dd if=[image file name] of=/dev/fd0'
Tried image file 'bare.i' and also 'pportide.i'
Error from Red Hat OS: "opening 'pportide.i' no such file, directory" Also tried 'C:>RAWRITE bare.i a:' from WinXP command line with negative result.

Slackware help site:
I have not seen a command w/ 2 = symbols??

Slackware :: Take Current Windows7 (x64) Setup And Make It Into A Dual-boot Setup With Slackware 13.0?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to take my current windows7 (x64) setup and make it into a dual-boot setup with slackware 13.0 (x32) and am hitting a brickwall. I guess I would like to know if I can salvage the situation without formating my windows drive. I fully intend to, but I had hoped to not do it this month. I'd like to get dual boot going so I can master it and acquire all the files/drivers I'll want and then format and do it 100% right next time.

Currently I have windows setup on a 3x 500gb Raid0 onboard array which itself has been flawless. After I shrunk my current partition size to give me about 25gb of free space I proceeded to setup Linux, and I was unable to perform the cfdisk portion for partitioning the array for Linux.

I tried using cfdisk:
/dev/hdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)
/dev/sdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)

I even attempted to locate with: cat proc/partition and tried using cfdisk on every device it located. It always said it was either an unknown partition table and should I start at zero, or bad partition. I was of course too concerned over my windows setup (which has almost 1tb of stuff I have not backed up) to go any further into the unknown.

PS: I have used Slackware before, back at 8.1, 10, and even a very brief interlude at 12.0, this is my first attempt on this computer however with 13.0, it is currently running fine on my laptop and my PS3 (Laptop is even dual booting 7/Slack13. Albeit without raid)

Slackware :: SlackBuild Rebuilds Everything Including The Actual Boot Loader With 'make -j4'?

Apr 1, 2011

I want to update syslinux to version 4.03 on my system, so I took a look at the SlackBuild.

I noticed that the SlackBuild rebuilds everything including the actual boot loader with 'make -j4', but there's a note in the docs directory (distrib.txt) that asks not to do that:


For creators of Linux distributions:

Syslinux is a notoriously hard program to debug, since it runs outside of any operating system, and has a tendency to expose BIOS and hardware bugs on various systems. Therefore, I would appreciate if you would resist the temptation of recompiling the Syslinux bootloader itself (ldlinux.asm) if at all possible. If you do that, I will have to refer any bug reports I receive back to the respective distributor.

However, I have no such concerns about recompiling the installer programs, and in fact, with both libc 5 and libc 6 in common use in the Linux world today I understand if you wish to relink the Linux-based installer against your system version of libc. Therefore a special makefile targets "make installer" has been included with the Syslinux distribution, starting with version 1.42.

To rebuild the installer programs *only*, starting from a freshly untarred distribution copy of Syslinux, do:

make clean
make installer

If you want to remove all intermediate files, including the ones obtained from assembling ldlinux.asm and which are included in the distribution, do "make spotless".

I thought I'd report this in case it was unnoticed by Pat and the team. If not I apologize for wasting your time

General :: XP Failed To Boot After Adding Red Hat Enterprise System / Resolve This?

Jan 22, 2011

I have a Dell Precision 330 with (the latest) A09 BIOS and 1 TB SATA hard drive. There is a SATA-IDE converter between the SATA HD and the ATA133 cable. The OS was Window XP Professional SP3.

When adding RH Enterprise Linux 6 onto the computer, I created two additional partitions, one 400 GB for Linux's storage and a 10 GB swap space. I chose Window XP as the default OS.

After the installation, when the system started up, I can hit a key to have two optional OS: Window XP and Linux. If I chose Linux, the system would boot up. If I chose Window XP, the boot failed with a message that windowssystem32configsystem was missing or corrupted. I read some articles that the problem can be fixed in window's recovery console with fixboot. After entering the fixboot command and restarting the computer, Window XP still failed to boot with an error message that another file was missing.

I thought I might have made some mistakes in the installation procedure and it would be cleaner to reinstall both OS. So I tried to install Window XP Professional again. Unfortunately, after booting from Window XP CD and formating the MBR and copying the window XP files, the computer can not restart with the installed XP. Instead, the computer boot from Window XP's CD repeatedly. If I remove Window XP's CD, the computer simply can not boot at all.

I began to wonder whether RH's Enterprise Linux made some change on the MBR of the HD that Window XP can not format.

Ubuntu :: Make With Make File Yields Error - /usr/bin/javac: Cannot Execute Binary File

Nov 17, 2010

When I try to compile some Java code on Ubuntu 10.10 (kernel 2.6+) using make and a Makefile.

I get an error indicating that the make utility cannot execute the java compile command (javac).

The error reads: /bin/bash: line 6: .: /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac: cannot execute binary file

I am executing make as root. I have enabled permissions on all directories in the path /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac and on javac itself.

I get this error whether using a jdk installed via ubuntu apt-get, or whether I install the jdk myself. And I get it using either Java 1.5 or 1.6

My machine has an 80386 processor. I notice the make utility is built for i686-pc-linux-gnu

However, I can manually compile using javac.

I can compile calling javac from within a bash script.

I can compile using the java compiler gcj from the command line: gcj --main=HelloWorld -o HelloWorld.exe

But I cannot compile java code from the makefile. Any reasons why I might be getting this error?

General :: Installing Slackware On IDE Hard Rive Boot From Slackware DVD?

Jan 23, 2010

I try to install Slackware to my IDE hard drive and boot first from Slackware DVD. After I loaded huge.s kernel, and tried to partition the hard drive using fdisk by entering "fdisk /dev/hda", I found out that the partition size is max to 3 Gigs instead of 80 Gigs.

I think the kernel is looking at my boot disk, which is around 3 Gigs. How can I make so that it looks at my IDE drive instead at my boot drive? Is there any manual that shows me how to install Linux from scratch this means I want to wipe out all my hard disk and install Slackware Linux there?

Slackware :: Stale NFS File Handle Mount Error On Non NFS Boot Partition

Sep 10, 2010

When I run lilo (/sbin/lilo), it messes up my /boot partition. Next time I try to mount it after running lilo, I get an error: "mount: Stale NFS file handle" (I define -t ext2). My /boot partition is ext2, mounted locally, and not nfs. Then I do fsck /dev/sda1, and I get several: Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (7665, counted=5063). Fix<y>? I say yes to all and it works normally afterwards. This happens only after I run lilo. Lilo is installed in MBR.

Here is relevant configuration:
root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# cat /etc/lilo.conf
append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
boot = /dev/sda

bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

timeout = 30
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = Linux
This is my partition table:

root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Slackware :: Php Curl Can't Resolve Host Getting Error?

Jan 26, 2011

I have a strange problem with using curl function in php on slackware machines. So far I tested this on 2 PCs. I din't test it on any other distributions, so I don't know if it's only slackware problem.

Problem is that I can't use php curl in normal way. It can be tested wit simple code:

$ch = curl_init("url");
$content = curl_exec($ch);
if (curl_error($ch)) {
echo(curl_error($ch) . "<br>");
When I'm opening this php script in browser I'm getting error message:

Couldn't resolve host ''
but I can use curl command in terminal, also it works when I run this php script in terminal like:

php ./curl_test.php
So problem is not in curl or php itself, but in apache, because this happens only when this script is running in apache.

Searching google a lot, I got to conclusion that apache can't read /etc/resolve.conf file during startup. Strange thing is that it happens only when httpd starts during system startup, but if I'm stopping httpd and starting it again manually, it works as it should until I'll reboot my PC. Restarting httpd also do not work, I need to do start -> stop.

I think that apache reads /etc/resolve.conf only when it starting up and as I have DHCP, maybe network is still not ready at the moment of httpd startup.

I didn't try to configure php as php-cgi instead of apache module, I think then it would work normally because each php script would be separate process and it would read dns information each time, so the same like starting php script in terminal with command:

php ./curl_test.php
I think there are some ways to workaround it, e.g. delay somehow start of httpd during system startup, or something like that, but I want to find reason of this problem and make it work without any workaround.

Slackware :: X Crashes After Update To -current / Resolve This?

Dec 17, 2010

I recently upgraded to -current from 13.0 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. It seems to have strange problems since then. The X crashes after sometime if I am running a video in firefox (flash based, say .....) in the full-screen mode. When I am not in the full-screen, it seems to run just fine. A similar thread was posted a few days back ( and I thought I had overcome the problem using one of the suggestions provided, but apparently, I just had not run full-screen videos ever since (and I thought it was solved!). code...

I should mention that, the crash happened when I was running a video chat on gmail in full-screen mode too. I have the Xorg.0.log for that too, if it is going to be helpful. Also, one thing I noticed was that even Ctrl+Alt+b_space does not work when this crash happens!! (so, I have to go ahead and reboot the system using the power button everytime) This I find very strange, since if at all, I should have been able to kill the process and restart X.

This seems to be an extraordinarily long thread, but I have put in whatever I thought could be useful info I should give. I will appreciate any help in resolving this issue.

Slackware :: Remove Net Manager And Use Wicd Only To Resolve Disconnection

Jun 12, 2010

I replaced the trusty old aironet wireless card with a trendnet scanbus wireless card so I could secure my home wireless with wpa encryption. It uses the ath5k module, and the wireless is set up with wicd. The issue is that if I stop browsing for about 2 minutes, the next time I start to browse, it will disconnect, then reconnect no problem. I don't know if this is supposed to be a feature, but it is sure annoying. Is there a tweak somewhere to stop this? The other option would be to use ndiswrapper and use windows drivers, but I'd rather explore tweaking, if possible. If I have to use ndiswrapper, would I have to rmmod ath5k first, or would it be ok to use ndiswrapper directly?
