General :: Cannot Run ARPD Command - Invalid Argument
Aug 17, 2010
I've a problem when I try to run arpd program to support my honeyd software but when I try to execute it then it shows this error message
arpd: intf_get: Invalid argument
My arpd installation based on this tutorial [URL].
When i type 'ifconfig eth0 192.168.25.1 255.255.255.0' the outcome is 'SIOCSIFADDR : invalid argument', but when i check the ip address using /sbin/ifconfig i see the ip address is updated to 192.168.25.1 and is up. When i restart the linux box,the /sbin/ifconfig is reset to 192.168.100.1 .what should i do so that the linux box /sbin/ifconfig should not change when am rebooting.
iam having a problem while using the urlwatch utility in linux
/usr/bin/urlwatch --urls=/home/etika/Desktop/etikaa.txt file pathname is /home/etika/Desktop/etikaa.txt
when ownership is tomcat it doesnot run when ownership is etika(which is the user on the system through which iam running my script why the file which is passed to urlwatch is not accepted if that's file owner is tomcat6 it gives the following error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/urlwatch", line 221, in <module> for job in handler.parse_urls_txt(urls_txt): File "/usr/share/urlwatch/urlwatch/handler.py", line 128, in parse_urls_txt shelljob_errors.append('%s not owned by %s' % (urls_txt, os.getlogin())) OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument
but when the ownership of the file is changed to etika it run smoothly why urlwatch does not run when the file containing the urls is owned by tomcat with full 777 permission but run with etika (user on the system) through this iam running my shell script

I am actually making a packet sniffer using raw socket. Its just that when I use the command ' if((ioctl(rawsock, SIOCGIFINDEX, &ifr)) == -1) to get the interface index... Its gives me an error saying :invalid argument?
I loaded Avast anti virus into Ubuntu 10.10 this morning. It seemed to go okay and uploaded the updates. But then it stopped. Now when I try to start it I get the following error message. 'An error occurred in avast! engine: Invalid argument'
When I boot, after startup and before I log on, an error icon appears. I click - it shows a summary of the material that normally rolls by on a unix startup. One item is checked. It says:
Code: Enabling /etc/fstab swaps: swapon: /dev/mapping/vg_knox-lv_swap: read swap header failed: invalid argument I have 1 disk - it has 2 partitions - one an 83 type with a file system in it, holds the kernel, mounts at /boot.
The second partition is an 8e type contains a volume group logically split between lv_root and lv_swap and physically located on sda2. As I understand it, the system is having trouble processing the commands for lv_swap. I am tempted to mess with these commands, but don't have enough know how to do so and am short on the time required to learn enough to master this subject.
I am using an embed linux application and trying to mount a USB device. The USB worked fine in windows. I then put it on my Linux box formatted (I hope correctly) And then tried to do the following to mount it
Disk /dev/sda: 4040 MB, 4040748544 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 491 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
I'm having trouble getting subversion working on Centos 4.7. When I try to create a repository using:
Code: svnadmin create /path/to/repo I get: Code:
svn: Berkeley DB error while creating environment for filesystem repo/db: Invalid argument svn: bdb: Berkeley DB library configured to support only DB_PRIVATE environments
I've searched the Net, with little luck. Threads seem to suggest that Centos has this flag compiled into the Berkeley DB RPM by default; whereas SVN doesn't want it. Someone, somewhere, must have got this to work and I'm sure it's something really simple I'm doing wrong.
I am running Red Hat with 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE kernel version. I am trying to run encryptfs to encrypt a partition on my hard drive. One of the kernel modules necessary is the md5.ko. I noticed it wasn't loaded in when doing an lsmod. I tried running modprobe md5 and it fails to load:
i downloaded baldurs gate II shadows of amn iso's, because i lost one of the CD's to the box, but anyways, I went to mount the third .ISO for installation, and BAM! my computer froze, so i waited five minutes, came back, and still frozen. shut it down for 20 minutes, pulled it back up, and it's got this error as follows; "Mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/65b0a6a-a366-435a-a086-58428cfe2bd1 on /root Failed: invalid argument

This error is very difficult to solve, but also appears widespread across the Debian universe and also others like Arch and Fedora. I use a Canon LiDE 110 scanner and it has always worked very well under Linux. This same problem affects many other scanners not just the 110. Run any front end like xSane and after initially appearing to be OK it will fail with an Invalid Argument error.
But, it does not happen to everyone. I have several machines to experiment with so I did. I also used Debian Testing and Sid, Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 and various Mint versions and desktops.
The error is all to do with USB3. Plugging the scanner into a USB2 port does not in and of itself solve the issue. Nor does running the scanner through a hub. On my older laptop without USB3 hardware my scanner works like a charm using any modern Linux. On my very old spare desktop it also works fine despite having USB3.
But, on my shiny new Intel i5 on an ASUS H97I Plus it all falls apart. After much reading of forums and many dead ends we find the problem is modern machines with Intel xHCI Mode in the BIOS. It has to be off, not enabled, auto nor super auto. But when you turn it off you turn off USB3 support and your system falls back to USB2 only. My old spare machine has an AMD chipset and USB3 enabled does not cause this error.
So if you need to use your scanner and get this error then xHCI mode is the workaround. Fine if you have no real need for USB3, but most definitely a temporary solution.
Where in the system does this error come from? Too hard for me. Is it in Sane or in the libusb sub system or all the way up to the kernel? However if you have any USB device that has stopped working this setting in your BIOS has got to be worth a try. It is nothing to do with permissions or firmware.
sane-utils updated to 1.0.24-5 in sid (Dec 12, 2014) problem still exists.
I'm having troubles installing ubuntu on my "Acer one 522" netbook, I have made a pendrive with unetbootin and ubuntu 11.04 natty and upon booting into the usb i get the boot loader displayed properly, start to load ubuntu, then about halfway through i get some screen tearing with a really small shot of the boot loader screen in the top left hand corner followed by some command lines saying "cannot mount /dev/loop0 :invalid argument".
I have SSDs connect to my Linux machine through the LSI SAS/SATA 1068E controller. I've been trying to issue a ATA secure erase command to my SSDs, but I keep getting error. In fact even hdparm -i fails.
Initially I thought there was some kernel configuration issue, so I tried connecting a SSD to the on board SATA and I no longer get errors. The secure erase worked. It seems there is some compatibility issue with hdparm and the LSI controller/driver I'm using. Any way to make hdparm play nice with my LSI controller? Has anyone had success getting hdparm to work with drives connected to an LSI controller?
Additianal info: Linux Kernel: 2.6.30 hdparm: v9.27 LSI driver: Fusion MPT SAS Host driver 3.04.07

I am trying to duplicate our company website running from Centos 5.5 to another Fedora 13 box. The output is ok but when I tried to open 1 page which automatically search pdf files, this errors appear:

I was just confused because in Centos 5.5 it works fine.
I've just moved a server across to CentOS 5.5 64-bit and I have been trying to get some custom software running on it. However I'm getting an unusual error during run time: sched_setaffinity: Invalid argument I've had this software working on a old versions of Gentoo (2.6.12-gentoo-r6) and Fedora. And the latest version of Ubuntu server 10.04.1. (All 64 bit). It looks remarkable similar to: Core test failed on s390x RHEL6 If v7 bug fix and enhancement update has been incorporated into CentOS 5.5 64 bit yet? Or how I might find out.

Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes): yes # Unlocking memory. Command failed with code 22: Invalid argument
I had /var/log/messages open in tail on another terminal, but no message appeared. I tried the same command deleting one by one the parameters, but I got the same behaviour, so I don't think it is a parameter problem.
My Brother DCP385 Printer/Scanner goes alright Printing but will not Scan. I keep getting this message: 'brother3:bus3:dev1': invalid argument. My OS is Fedora 14. Brother seems to only go up to Fedora 12 in their driver page . There is no mention of Fedora 14 .
I have been looking through Brother drivers and can get the drivers for Brother DCP385C printer and scanner but the scanner will not work . It keeps telling me "failed to open device - 'Brother3:bus3;dev1':invalid argument" . I have looked into the Brother site but it does not tell me what to do for Fedora 14 . It only goes up to Fedora 12.
