General :: Run A Script In Straight From CD Drive (CD Was Burned In Windows)

Jan 21, 2011

I have a self-extracting Bash installation script. I'd like to burn this to CD on my Windows box, drop that in a Linux box, and run the script straight off the CD drive.

Is there a way to add "+x" Permission on the Windows box when creating the CD?

I've been using the built in "writable folder"/"burn to disc" method, but think I have nero sitting around somewhere.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: DVD Drive Will Not Read Burned Dual Layer Discs?

Feb 22, 2010

seen this or have suggestions on how to fix this. I can read the original disks but I cannot read the backup. The backup disc was burned on Window$ using Nero.I am trying to read the disc using both VLC and Totem but you can see in /var/log/messages there is an issue with reading the disc. This disc is readable in the Window$ box and on all DVD stand alone players.

Fedora Installation :: 15 Does Not Boot After Install Goes Straight To Windows

May 27, 2011

I have a multi-drive system:

C: RAID 10 (WD 500 GB x4)
D: Data Drive (WD 1.5 TB)
E: Back-up ( Seagate 3 TB)

I shrunk the 3TB drive (E: ) to give me a free unallocated 60GB. Boot to F15 live DVD and did a custom install of the partition.Using the 60GB unallocated partition, use 500 MB /boot, 2GB /swap, and the remaining for /root and chose Fedora bootloader The installation completed successfully but after reboot it just goes straight to Windows 7-64. I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1100T 3.3Ghz with 8 GB DDR3 memory. RAID controller is a HighPoint RocketRAID 4320 PCI-Express and the other drives are connected to HighPoint RocketHybrid 1220 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III controller. Only the DVD-ROM and Blue-Ray drives are plugged into the mobo's nVidai SATA controller.

I'm not sure if its the drive configuration is causing the problem or Grub was not written to the MBR but apparently it wont let me boot to F15. I'm also running 4 monitors with 2 x Radeon XFX HD-697A-CNDC HD 6970 but only one video card (2 monitors) are working. During boot to the live DVD I notice that it switches from each pair of monitors but not all 4 and only after the login screen that only my 2 monitors are working. I tried the monitor detect and it only see 2 monitors.

Ps. I just love F15 Gnome3. I'm moving from Ubuntu 11.04 Natty.

Ubuntu Installation :: PC Boots Straight To Windows After 11.04 Install

May 8, 2011

I am fairly inexperienced with Linux. I'm good with windows and PCs in general. I've been wanting to setup a Linux environment for teaching myself some programming so I downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 to install on my main Windows desktop.

I have two internal HDDs and an external HDD. Each of the internals is 160GB and the external is 1TB. I have Windows on the drive in SATA0. I split the drive in SATA1 into 3 partitions. I Windows Disk Management to shrink the NTFS partition to 100GB for storage. I used gParted to create a 2GB swap partition the rest is a ext4 partition So sda1 is NTFS, sdb1 is swap, sdb2 is ext4, and sdb3 is NTFS, and sdc1 is NTFS

I mounted sdb2 as root and installed Ubuntu there. I chose the manual option for the installation as the install alongside Windows option only showed my external HDD (sdc). I wasn't sure where to place the boot loader so I tried to overwrite the Windows boot loader on sda but that failed with an error about no file system available or compatible. I figured Grub2 doesn't work on NTFS......

Fedora Installation :: Doesn't Work - Goes Straight To The Windows XP Login?

Aug 17, 2011

I burned Fedora onto a disk, but when I turn on the system it just goes straight to the Windows XP login.

I thought it was something wrong with the disk or something like that, but when I pop in the disk on my Dad's laptop, the installation for Fedora runs perfectly.

Also, yes, I checked the order for booting and the CD drive comes before the hard drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Grub To Boot Straight Into Either Of The Windows Versions?

Jan 24, 2010

I've recently reinstalled all the os's on my computer, just now I'm going with ubuntu (general use) win xp (for flash, it doesnt play nice with 7 for some reason) and win 7 (for games). Everything is fine, but I can't get grub to boot me straight into either of the windows versions: Each option makes brings me to the windows bootloader, where I can choose between "Windows 7" and "Older version of windows". I want to go directly from grub to xp/7, without that extra menu. How do I get rid of it?

Using ubuntu 9.10. I snooped around and found a script to run that should give some helpful information:

General :: Permission Denied When Trying To Execute Binary Burned To A CD-R

Mar 23, 2010

On an Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) machine, I burned a CD from the command prompt using: cdrecord -v speed=16 dev=0,1,0 /FPS.iso.The CD now contains an executable and some files. I tested the CD by loading it onto another machine (Red Hat 5.3) and when I try to run the program I get the following message:bash: ./FPS1_1: Permission denied.I can open other files like text documents (the executable also comes with shared libraries).I realized I had burned the CD as root so I burned another one as another user but I still have the same problem.

General :: Debian Lenny Unable To Log In Over SSH Or Straight To The Server

Mar 10, 2010

I have installed Debian lenny with software RAID0 (i think it makes no sence to my problem but maybe...) I have installed apache2+php+MySQL (everything worked) I have installed proftpd (to enable users to put files over FTP) after this i tried to connect over SSH to my server i have got:


$ ssh -l shark -v
OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-5, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *


I thought it is problem with SSH i have tried to connect with another machine over putty, but no success... then i have removed ~/.ssh dir and tried to connect again... i got the same error. Then i connected keybord and monitor to my Linux box, tried to connect there... no success... neither root or my regular user shark. but i should mention my FTP users who have shell: /bin/ftp (symlink to /bin/false) log into the system and then automatically disconnect...

i have tried to boot my linux box to debian safe mode... it asked for a root pass. after i provided correct root pass it didn't fit. I remember once i have made my linux boot to init 1 without asking to provide a pass (it was mandriva Free 2005 or 2006.0) how to do it with a debian machine using grub or any other fixing possibilities?

P.S. i can not how provide server side /var/log/syslog or any other info because i cannot log into my Linux "server"

General :: On Kubuntu, Whenever Open The Terminal, Go Straight To ~/Documents?

Jun 29, 2011

Even after changing the file name to Document, Doc, Docs, etc. It always makes it the default directory. It's not a "Deal-Breaker" with me deciding between Ubuntu 11.04 Classic and Kubuntu 11.04, but it's kind of annoying. How do I change it to my home directory *I.E /home/theif519* instead of /home/theif519/Doc* ?

Is there a file I have to edit or something?

General :: Can't See Shared Drive From Windows?

Jan 2, 2011

All my windows PC's show the Linux computer in the network -but that's it. No sign of anything on the Linux computer. I built a Linux box, two drives. Linux OS on first drive, Second drive (320MB) is one FAT32 partition. Mount point for second drive is /mnt/windows. I set it up in Samba as shared with read, write, and browse all set to "yes".

From other computers connected to my router (XP and Vista OS) I can see the Linux computer (Icon shown with the computer name), I can successfully ping it's IP address -but I can't see any drives or directories on it. No error codes, no password requests.In the network neighborhood in windows it shows the Linux machine, but when i click on it, I only get "properties" which does not include any drives or directories.I'm really stuck here -I don't know what's missing in the network configuration or how to troubleshoot this (no error message). How do I get /mnt/windows on the Linux machine visible to the windows computers?

General :: Boot - Ubuntu On One Drive And Have Windows 7 On The Other

Apr 29, 2010

There are many threads around about having both OS's but most seem to only refer to using one HDD. I might be wrong. I am currently building a new PC and I want to put Ubuntu on one drive and have Windows 7 on the other, and be given to option on which one to boot from (if possible). Can I follow the general directions around the internet that state it is usually better to install windows first, then do ubuntu, or would it not even matter.

General :: Cifs Mount On A Windows XP Removable Drive?

Mar 16, 2011

I have 2 USB drives connected to an XP machine that I rotate twice a month for backups. On my CentOS box, I have that drive mounted at /home/backup using cifs.

Because the drive is mounted on the Linux box, Windows XP complains when I try to "Safely Remove Hardware". As a result, I have to "umount /home/backup", then "Safely Remove Hardware". After connecting the new drive, I then have to "mount /home/backup" in order to use it again on the Linux box.

Now, this question may be a Windows XP question, but I was wondering if there is anything I can do on the Linux box first. Is there anything that can be done on either end, so that I won't have to "umount /home/backup" first?

General :: Installing Windows 7 Onto A New Drive On An Ubuntu Machine?

Sep 20, 2009

I want to install Windows 7 on a separate drive on my PC that already has Ubuntu. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how best to go about this? I was going to install a new empty drive, removing the current one, then put the current drive back once Windows had been installed. However, I'm not entirely sure if this will work, since Linux currently runs from the first drive: Will it be confused by making its drive the second drive (these will both be SATA drives, BTW), and how would I get Linux to run? Could I change which drive to boot from in the BIOS, or would replacing the MBR to provide a boot loader menu be easier?

General :: Mounting Windows Drive Automatically In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2011

I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu. How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

General :: Sharing The DVDROM Drive Ubuntu / Windows 7?

May 26, 2010

As a relative noob with Linux (Ubuntu) I was enjoying learning stuff with Ubuntu Karmic - and everything I tried seemed to work even after my inexpert fiddling - which was nice! However, since installing Ubuntu Lucid I've spent loads of time trying to re-establish the share I had under Karmic whereby my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM was automatically available to my connected Win7 PC.

After a couple of days effort I've got to the point where I can access the CD or DVD mounted in Ubuntu, from Win7 but I cannot access the files within the CD or DVD (Windows Err Mssg: You Do Not Have Permission To Access.. I have noticed that since installing Lucid the mount point seems to be the name of the disk whereas under Karmic it was fixed as something like cdrom1. So if I edit smb.conf I can't specify the mount point as it depends on the disk name. Though to be honest I have no idea if this is anything to do with the problem!

To save what little hair I have left I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to have my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM available on my Win7 PC for read & write. PS I posted this several days ago on the Ubuntu forum but there's been no replies at all - I was wondering if the question is so daft that they think.

General :: Windows 7 X64 Doesn't Boot If A Drive Is Plugged?

Jun 2, 2011

I have connected (sata cable I mean) the drive where I have got my Ubuntu installation to another pc with windows 7 64 bits (but I think that 32 and 64 doesn't make difference). Windows 7 doesn't boot. So I thought it may be some kind of issue with the hard drive itself (but the drive is healthy), anyway I have plugged one drive from one NAS (you know, NAS drives are linux partitioned and formatted).Same result: windows 7 doesn't boot.

Windows 7 boot sequence hangs and at the next boot prompts
"Repair windows installation"
"Boot windows normally"
(and obviously none of the options works)

Looks really like that Windows 7 doesn't boot if any linux partitioned and formatted drive is present.
