General :: Windows In Determining Drives-drive Letters?

Nov 25, 2010

Using a Linux program to fix my TiVo. Program is burned to a bootable CD, which loads fine. I get asked what the drives are (CD and Hard Disk) with abbreviations like hda, sda, etc. I was able to determine the Hard Drive as /dev/sda, by using <Shift>-PgUp/PgDn, but could not find what the CD drive was.

Ubuntu Servers :: Lock The Drive Letters To Certain Drives At Boot?

Jul 24, 2011

Is there any somewhat straightforward way of lock the drive letters to certain drives at boot?

I have searched a lot on this and the only thing that have come up is a rather long and complicated way using scripts etc.

A simple fstab example on how to make an uuid to boot at say sda1 everytime and not like now totally random even though I have the same drives in the same places with no portable devices and only a std setup with /boot, /, /home, /swap. +some storage drives.

This uuid creates a havoc on my Truecrypt favorites mounting that relies on labels.

If this is not possible how far back do I have to go get rid of uuid?

I know that 10.04 LTS was working fine at first, is it in the kernel version that it is decided?

OpenSUSE :: Typing Greek Letters Instead Of English Letters

Dec 12, 2010

Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

General :: Determining Network Status On Abbreviated System?

May 24, 2011

I have and embedded system which apparently, due to space considerations, is missing lots of normal commands. I can get the following information by "cat /proc/version":

Linux version 2.4.19-uc0 (...) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)(ColdFire patches - 20010318 from patches)) #461 Tue May 24 12:06:06 PDT 2011

At issue is the fact that, after some time, the system stops responding to the Network (e.g., you can ping it, then some time later you can't). We suspect that some sort of network monitor is accessing the device and causing the trouble, but don't know for sure.

What I would like to do is log some sort of useful network status information and/or be able to reset the network if I can figure out there is an issue from within the device.

I thought I had it all working using "/etc/init.d/network restart" but I've come to find out that the command is not recognised in this system. I also can't issue a "top" command to see what services are running. I can Telnet in, so I can try commands and see if they work.

Have any of you worked with such an abbr. system and if so, what might be around that I'm unaware of to help determine network status?

General :: Fedora 14 / Windows 7 On Two Separate Drives

Dec 8, 2010

Is it possible to run Fedora 14 on hard drive SDA (1st drive in computer - 1 terabyte Western Digital) and also run Windows 7 on drive SDB (2nd drive in computer - 1 terabyte Hitachi)? I have been able to run both Windows and Fedora (Fedora installed last) on SDA, but all my attempts to have the two OSs running on different drives have failed. Am I attempting the impossible or can it be done? I'm not particularly concerned which OS goes on which drive, but Fedora grub doesn't seem to be able to pick up WIN7 when it is on drive SDB.

General :: Dual Boot Windows 7 And Ubuntu Using 2 Different Hard Drives?

Nov 23, 2010

I just started working with Linux over the weekend. I do have a working dual booting system but it's not configured exactly how I want it to be. Currently Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu are on the same hard drive but different partitions. The Windows boot screen comes up and I can select Windows or Ubuntu fine. Grub comes up when I select Ubuntu and I can successfully select any choice in the menu and it will run properly.

Everything works great now so you may wonder why I even want to keep tinkering, well, it's not working how I want it to. This is what I want it to do. I want Windows 7 on disk 0 and Ubuntu on disk 1. I want each OS to have it's own hard drive. I want Grub to be the only boot loader that comes up with the option to select Ubuntu or Windows. I want to skip the window's OS selection screen all together. I can modify Grub, I've already done some of that on my work computer.

I've been installing from windows. Should I use a CD instead? Would that accomplish my goals without doing anything special?

General :: Windows - Preserve Diacritics When Cross-mounting Drives To Windows7

Sep 5, 2011

A friend backed up an in accessible Windows 7 partition to a big (close to 1TB) external USB drive using KNOPIX. Unfortunately the umlauts and accents in the file names of his extensive music collection now appear garbled (UTF8 vs ISO xxx, I guess) when he accesses that drive from Windows. My guess is he needs to mount the two drives in a 'special way,' that takes the diacritics translation into account, on KNOPIX? Or do you have another idea what went wrong? This is the second part of a windows/linux problem I'm having. See how-does-one-mount-a-partition-in-windows-7 for the other part

General :: Hard Drive Malfunctions When Other Hard Drives Are Connected?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a SATA drive that worked fine. Then I installed two more hard drives into my system. When these hard drives are installed, if I try to access the SATA drive in Linux, it will start lightly clicking and then the drive will become unavailable. If I power on the machine without the other two hard drives then it works fine. What could be causing this to happen? I don't think it's heat because the two hard drives are far away from the SATA drive.

General :: Letters Are VERY Faint When Print?

Jul 19, 2011

We have an issue like this: We print PDFs from a Linux box to a printer attached to a Windows machine. Problem is when we print from the Windows the printout comes perfectly with the font bold and clear, but when printing from the Linux box the font is very FAINT and we can see dots in the fonts.

We tried changing the PDF to a text file (i.e. we created text file with the report) with the -o cpi=5 option and still it does not come out properly. Now the font gets bigger, but we can see dots in the font and it is not bold.

General :: Cannot Type Certain Letters In Gnome

Feb 8, 2011

I've recently purchased a VPS to run a private server on. I installed gnome and configured it to run on TightVNC to access from my home computer. Whenever I try to type certain letters such as a lower case "s" it instead accesses the shutdown menu at the top right corner. This is disabling me from finishing my server and downright frustrating.

General :: Files That Span Multiple Drives Drives?

Jan 8, 2010

So, at the moment I have a 7TB LVM with 1 group and one logical volume. In all honesty I don't back up this information. It is filled with data that I can "afford" to lose, but... would rather not. How do LVMs fail? If I lose a 1.5TB drive that is part of the LVM does that mean at most I could lose 1.5TB of data? Or can files span more than one drive? if so, would it just be one file what would span two drives? or could there be many files that span multiple drives drives? Essentially. I'm just curious, in a general, in a high level sense about LVM safety. What are the risks that are involved?

Edit: what happens if I boot up the computer with a drive missing from the lvm? Is there a first primary drive?

I'm trying to make my script read this text file, find the string sequence "QIEN", and delete everything from this sequence backwards (including "QIEN") so that the above lines look something like this:

I'm aware that grep is good to do a regular find-and-delete as follows:


But this will delete everything on the lines that contain the string sequence "QIEN".

General :: Sed - Change And Capitalize Some Letters In Words?

May 9, 2011

I'm trying to use Sed to change all "l" letters with "I" in capitalized words something like this:


- and as opposite change the all "I" with "l" in a word in small letters such as:

2. DiIbert -> Dilbert

For the first case I'm using the below sentence which unfortunately changes words such as "let" in "It"


sed 's/[:upper:]*l[:upper:]*/I/g'

For the second case the below command seems to work but it might have a side effect as the one used in the first case:


sed 's/[:lower:]*I[:lower:]*/l/g'

General :: Sorting Output By A Column With Numbers And Letters

May 22, 2011

I have a program that prints out lines like:

And I want to be able to pipe it to sort on that third column, by letter first, then number. But I keep coming getting files sorted like:

(field separations all start at same place, so columns are not jagged like above.)

I have read the sort man pages, and have tried -n for the numbers, and -k for the position to start sorting, among other things. I also tried inputting a second position to start sorting, which sort should supposedly refer to if the two entries are identical at the first place being compared, but it seems to just ignore the second one. I just can't get it to sort the numbers properly...

For now I am manually opening the file in emacs and changing them around, needless to say, very time consuming.
