I'm having some difficulities with truecrypt and cannot figure out what's wrong since this is my first attempt to create hidden encrypted partition. I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64b with latest 6.3a truecrypt. After using truecrypt gui (just command truecrypt) I've tried: create volume-->create volumne within a partition/drive-->hidden trucrypt volume --> select some /dev/sdX by my choice --> select aes & sha512 --> password --> and format it.
when formating finished message "wrong ss, swith or wrong superblock of /dev/loop0" appeared. I've got no idea what could I do with it neither know whats program trying to do! Ok formating's done, then if you're trying to mount that partition then I would expect prompt for password, but that did not happen ...
EDIT: sudo mount /dev/loop0 /media/tmp/ also complaint about wrong superblock, but that does not ring any bell since i've got no idea what /dev/loop0 is or is for...
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 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
Trying to get scanning going with my all-in-one, and have been troubleshooting it for awhile, and nothing works. Could use expert advice on this topic for an HP c6380 All-in-One. Printing does fine. All attempts at scanning are failing. scanimage -L says the device is my webcam. I don't know if usb scanner is in /dev.
I have a SONY laptop, PCG-7181M model. It came with Windows 7 but I changed the OS to Ubuntu. Last night it asked me to upgrade to the new version called Natty Narwhal. I had to go to bed so I changed the sleep timer on the laptop to 2 hours, the time it would have taken the upgrade to complete. I woke up and the laptop was off, now only the grub menu shows up and the laptop won't boot. I tried doing this: - When the machine boots up, press Esc to get to the Grub menu - Select one of the recovery mode options. This will boot you up to a single-user root prompt. - Run sudo fdisk /dev/sda (this assumes that your hard drive is at sda) - Type p to see which hard drive partition is labeled Linux swap. In my case the partition was /dev/sda5. Type q to exist fdisk. - Type these commands:
I'm trying to mount my new Western Digital Elements 2tb hard drive, but every time I try to plug it into the computer I get this error message:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (3907027119): Invalid argument
HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
But when I tried opening the hard drive from nautilus I still got the same error message as above (no other volumes was connected at the time). I've also tried opening and watching it in GParted, and I can see it there as a volume that's not allocated. When I tried to allocate the hard it I got the message that it had no partition table. And that I cold make one. I tried and Ubuntu suggested to make a MS-DOS partition table for it. But there I got a little scared as I've not done this before. The external hard drive is brand new and was brought today. And I don't have the possibility to test it with Windows or Mac as I'm using Linux only on my machines.
I'm running Kubuntu Karmic on my Dell Inspiron laptop - about 200 bug fixes behind because my only available internet is a cellular connection on a crappy wi-fi router - and last night, I suspended it, but it shut down instead. Not a problem, it does this fairly often, figure the RAM gets jostled or something.
But when I go to boot it up, it gets stuck at the pre-loading screen before getting garbled and dropping to the shell, where it says "mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert hex code here] failed: invalid argument". Of course, mounting /root/sys, /root/dev and /root/proc fails, (directory does not exist) and it gives me the busybox initramfs prompt.
after upgrading ClamAV to version 0.97.1 and run the command Code: clamscan -r -i / --exclude-dir=^/sys --exclude-dir=^/dev --exclude-dir=^/proc | mail -s "clamav scan report XYSERVER" email@example.com the following errors appeared:

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 have a desktop that has a d-link DWL-520 wireless card, which was working under Windoze. Today I installed Centos 5.4 on the system , which went cleanly. I then used Network Configuration to set up the wireless card. I specified to use DHCP, set the SSID and authentication password. When I tried to activate the card I get these error messages
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0.
The hardware manager seems to have correctly identified the card and chipset, (Intersil Prism 2.5) and installed driver hostap_pci which came with the distro. This web site seems to suggest that this is the correct driver: [URL] searching forums I've found a few references to these errors, but they were from several years ago, and for different distros and cards. I did find a reference to using Network Manager to configure the card instead of Network Configuration. I started the NM service and configured a connection using it instead, but still no luck.
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'
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.
Although Win7 is not bad either, I'm really happy using new Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat on my notebook. Since I've been using Linux (SimplyMepis, then Arch) on my desktop, I'm really happy that I found a Linux distro which suits me the best. BTW, I have a Toshiba T130-10g which I love for its long battery life. However, I would like to solve some issues/dilemmas/questions (and I searched for s the solutions of some of them on Google so please don't tell me to use it...)
1) How do I turn off Wifi completely in a comfortable way? I tried sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower off but it threw: Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. I even edited something in interfaces configuration file, but it did nothing. Oh, I forgot, my notebook doesn't have a hardware switch to turn off wifi.
2) Setting brightness doesnt work for my laptop. I can set it by udo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=25 but I'm looking for a more comfortable solution. BTW, editing one GRUB configuration file didn't help and ended in booting into command line (it was something with adding backlight=vendor or something like that...)
3) My touchpad is sometimes too sensitive and clicks somewhere sometimes when I don't want to it. How to make clicks less sensitive? I tried to play with some mouse settings but it didn't help much but perhaps I'm setting a bad parameter.
4) I remember that back in KDE 3.5 times a network manager icon had a setting to switch on net statistics so I could very easily see how much I downloaded every day. But, since KDE 3.5 is not supported anymore, I stopped using it in refusal to update to KDE 4.XX and switched to GNOME. Since for some months I'll have a limited download connection, is there something esay in GNOME to watch my net statistics that wouldn't be deleted after reboot/shutdown?...
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:
