General :: Virtual Consoles Are Not Coming Up?

Apr 26, 2010

I recently installed RHEL 5.2 on my system. I found that I was not able to show up virtual consoles that we generally do by hitting Ctrl + Alt + F1 through F6.

I installed Red Hat again but the same problem is there. However, I can go into Run Level 3 by

init 3

but it takes too long to display the prompt. Besides, hitting Ctrl key generates error "unrecognized key" something like that.

Today I installed Virutal Box on Windows XP Host. Then I installed RHEL 5.2. There also I faced the same problem.

However, Virtual Box works fine and I am glad that I can now have only one Host OS on my system and then install as many Guest OSes as I want. Dual Boot System was giving me a heacdache.

Ubuntu :: Tty Consoles Don't Show Up (notebook)

Aug 4, 2010

The problem is: CTRL-ALT-F1 etc does not give me the login consoles and i strongly suspect it has something to do with the notebook display adapter (a problem on its own, but in this case it seems to be the INTEL GMA).After pressing the key combo, the HD is working on something, but all I get is a frozen picture of my current (tty7) Desktop. After hitting CTRL+ALT-F7 it blacks out for a moment, comes back to normal gnome Desktop as if nothing happened.I tried setting different vga modes in grub (according to my research, this also sets tty consoles modes ?) with no luck.The output of 'hwinfo --framebuffer' is as follows (if it's of any help):


02: None 00.0: 11001 VESA Framebuffer
[Created at bios.464]
Unique ID: rdCR.7IS+B23HFDE
Hardware Class: framebuffer

OpenSUSE :: Keep Contents Of The Virtual Consoles After Logout?

Apr 3, 2011

I just upgraded to openSuSE 11.4 from 11.1. In 11.1 the contents of the virtual consoles are kept after a logout, so if I login again, I get the same environment as before. In 11.4 the contents are lost. How can I switch on this feature again?

Fedora :: Missing Virtual Consoles After Upgrading Packages?

Apr 4, 2010

I installed 64-bit Fedora 12, and everything was working fine. I upgraded a bunch of packages (including, but not limited to, X and Gnome) via yum, and now I'm unable to access virtual consoles. X works fine, but Ctrl-Alt-F2, etc. leads me to a black screen.

How do I get my virtual consoles back?

Debian Installation :: Virtual Consoles Are No Longer 25x80 On Squeeze?

Jun 12, 2011

On Debian lenny, when I wanted to go from X to a virtual console, I would type (for example) <Ctrl> <Alt> <F1>. Then I got the traditional 25x80 screen, which is wonderful in bad lighting conditions.

On Debian squeeze, virtual consoles are no longer 25x80. They fit way more than 25x80 characters on the screen. They go through the frame buffer, which I guess I must keep that way because otherwise it would ruin X.

But I want my 25x80 back, for those bad lighting conditions.

If I set /etc/default/console-setup to FONTFACE="VGA", at least I get a readable font.

ANd if I set /etc/default/console-setup to SCREEN_WIDTH=80 and SCREEN_HEIGHT=25, they do the obvious, but the characters are just as small, and the data is all in the upper left corner of the screen.

How do I get 25x80 so it fills the screen, as in the days of lenny, without removing /dev/fb0?

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Boot Screen And Consoles

May 27, 2010

I have got myself into a situation where I see nothing during boot until X starts, and I have no text virtual consoles. I recently replaced my old 9.10 system running on hardware that seemed to be breaking down, with a new system with both an onboard graphics chip (which I disabled in the BIOS as the 1st step), and an Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS card. I installed Windows XP then Ubuntu 9.10, copied all my files across, modified /etc/fstab, /etc/hosts, etc etc., and as the last step I unplugged the 1920x1440 IBM CRT that I'd used during the install and tweaking, and plugged the display into the BenQ LCD on a Belkin 4-port KVM. Oh, I also installed Windows and Splashtop (that mini-Linux that fast boots from the Windows NTFS partition).

I had a problem at that point: I had a lot of trouble getting any signal on the LCD monitor, and eventually got it working but with the whole display half-shifted off the screen (everything was shifted to the right about six inches), and the Ubuntu splash during boot (the sort of spotlight effect with the glowing horizontal line with the light animating along it left and right) was shrunk and only occupied part of the screen. Nor could X detect what kind of monitor it was. I had a lot of problem with a lot of attempts prodding the LCD monitor to complain "Out of range!" (over the top of the Ubuntu three linked circles). I couldn't fix the problem, and in the end installed the Nvidia proprietary driver and ran its X configurator, and suddenly everything snapped back and began working correctly: X ran happily in 1680x1050, filling the screen properly, and X could now correctly detect the monitor as a BenQ.....

Ubuntu :: Show Folder Names On Taskbar?

Nov 5, 2010

I would like to configure my desktop so that I have taskbars on the bottom and sides. No problem. However I also want to put folders on these taskbars where the NAME of the folder is shown with the folder icon and not just when the mouse hovers over it. In other words, I want to be able to determine what the folder is just by looking at it. I like the way the program icons clearly show what the application is on the taskbar launch bars but how to achieve this for folders also ?

Ubuntu :: Remove 2GB Virtual Drive Created With Qemu?

Jan 23, 2010

I installed Windows XP on my system using QEMU as a 2GB virtual drive in my home directory. I don't want to have it anymore, however I can't get rid of this 2GB used space with windows XP. I can't even delete QEMU, because the command sudo apt-get remove qemu tells me that package qemu is not installed. (however it is there, works, and is able to start Windows XP as usual).

How can I get rid of this qemu/Win XP and have 2GB of my home folder available again?

Ubuntu :: Show File Names Instead Of Tags In Totem's Playlist?

Jul 20, 2011

Totem by default shows some sort of tags (if found) and not file names in the playlist. I don't like this, because I use Totem for video only and videos I get from the web usualy contains URLs and other such nonsense in the tags so I never know which file is which.

Can I somehow force Totem to always display file names?

Fedora :: Mount .img File Created By Virtual Machine Manager.

Jan 19, 2010

I have a file that was created in Virtual Machine Manager and I need to get it out of the virtual operating system(windowsXP). Writing to a USB would be ideal but that hasn't been working since I upgraded to Fedora12.Is there anyway I can mount the image to retrieve the file?wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so mounting as fvat doesn't work either.

Ubuntu Servers :: Created A New Virtual Host In Apache Using Webmin - Doesn't Work ?

Nov 14, 2010

I created a new virtual host in Apache using Webmin and am having trouble getting it to work. When I created it, I opted to create the config file as a "New file under virtual servers directory /etc/apache2/sites-available". So now I have a default config file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and a new one created by Webmin at /etc/apache2/sites-available/webmin.1412323.conf. It seems like the settings in that new Webmin config file aren't being picked up by Apache -- when I try and browse to it shows my root /var/www folder, not the subdirectory /var/www/mywebsite.

Is there a way I can tell Apache to include the new Webmin config file for the virtual host or should I just copy the directives into the default file at /etc/apache2/sites-available/default? It seems like Webmin should automatically configure Apache to work with any newly generated config files.

General :: Ubuntu - Using Multiple Consoles + Vim

Jul 12, 2010

I am gradually getting used to the CLI for Ubuntu. I am used to switching between windows when editing a file, going to the command line to run a cmd, and then back again etc.

I feel severly restricted by the CLI, as it seems I can only do one thing at a time. Surely, there must be a way where I can 'switch between' several command line consoles?

Also, I am using vim, and I sometimes need access the command line. At the moment, I have to quit vim to get to the CLI, and then start vim again. This is not very productive.

How to switch between CLI screens/consoles and also how to switch to the CLI from withinin vim and then back to vim again without having to close vim?

My distro is Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04 LTS)

General :: Multiple Consoles - Used VFB As Temp?

Jan 11, 2011

I am attempting to setup linux in my embedded environment. I wanted to output the console display though the tty serial port and the vt. Since I don't have a frambuffer hw driver yet, I just wanted to use the vfb as a temp.

So, this is what I did in my configuration file:
CONFIG_CMDLINE="console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0 mem=126M video=vfb:"

I would expect the tty output to go to the uart as well as the virtual-console; this does not seem to be the case, as no vt functions are called when I execute prompt commads - I can see the console in my serial terminal, and this all works fine.

Here are extracts from my boot:
Kernel command line: console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0 mem=126M video=vfb:
Console: colour dummy device 80x30
console [tty0] enabled
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x25
fb0: Virtual frame buffer device, using 1024K of video memory
Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing disabled
serial8250.0: ttyS0 at MMIO 0x3e000000 (irq = 99) is a 16550A
console [ttyS0] enabled
serial8250.0: ttyS1 at MMIO 0x3e001000 (irq = 9 is a 16550A
serial8250.0: ttyS2 at MMIO 0x3e002000 (irq = 97) is a 16550A

Here are my console binding results:
/ #
cat /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon0/bind
/ # cat /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon0/name
(S) dummy device
/ # cat /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind
/ # cat /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/name
(M) frame buffer device

General :: Bootloader Does Not Show Up Blank Screen?

Mar 17, 2011

My laptop screen goes blank right after the bios is loaded. Live CDs have no effect either.I installed arch linux to my whole HDD today. Last time I installed ubuntu linux to my whole HDD, the same problem happened.The way I fixed the problem last time was by formatting the HDD with an internal HDD dock and then installing windows with linux dual boot.As I do not want to go through the hassle by installing windows again, and I would be very delighted if anyone had an alternate way. I really want my laptop to be windows free!It seems to me that my laptop is somehow constructed to crash / go blank if no windows partition / boot loader is detected. I have no idea why they would do that, maybe you have a better explanation?

General :: After Installation Of Virtual Box When Rebooting Black Screen

Jul 6, 2011

I have installed virtualbox because i wanted to run .exe files for my job. After installation and configuration it asked me to reboot. From that moment when reboots it returns the full symbol of fedora and then the screen becomes black with white letters. I couldn't login ever again. I am new in Fedora, i don't have a backup of my files and i cant't work. I think that this could be a command line or something like this. Is there any possibility to login even once to copy my files to another disk and then to setup Fedora again?

General :: Ubuntu - Command-line Program That Switches Consoles?

Jun 18, 2011

For whatever reason, the "Ctrl-Alt-Fn" sequence has no effect on one of my Ubuntu machines; the sequence is interpreted as ordinary input. I need to get the system to a console because I'm trying to do a dist-upgrade and that's going to bounce gdm etc.

Is there some command-line tool that can be used to switch consoles? I have some vague distant memory of that being possible.

(I'm running Ubunty Jaunty at the moment. Yes I know it's old; I'm trying to march forward.)
