Jan 12, 2011

I am in school for my CIS degree and the book I am using this session covers Windows XP and Fedora Core 4. I am having trouble finding & downloading Fedora Core 4.

General :: Missing CPU Core On Boot?

Jun 11, 2010

I'm running Linux on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. When I apply power to my computer, it boots into one core but appears to leave the other one idle. On the screen, it prints:

SMP: Allowing 2 CPUs, 1 hotplug CPUs

I can confirm that only 1 CPU is active by logging in and examining /proc/interrupts and /proc/cpuinfo. After issuing a "reboot" command, the screen shows:

SMP: Allowing 2 CPUs, 0 hotplug CPUs

So, when I do a cold boot, I one get 1 CPU. When I do a warm boot, I get both CPUs. This is a problem for me because I'm running Linux on an embedded board and I need both CPUs to be running.

I've played around with BIOS settings, the boot string, kernel configuration, and CPU hot plugging. I can't seem to find a way to get both processors running without booting the system twice.

I thought that the CPU hot plugging path showed some promise but I can't seem to get that feature working on my system. The first issue is that the Linux documentation doesn't seem to match with what I'm seeing. It states that you should be able to go into /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/ and write a zero or a one to the file labeled 'online' to disable it or enable it. When I go to /sys/devices/system/cpu I only see a directory for cpu0. There isn't a directory for cpu1.

After a reboot, I do see two directories int /sys/devices/system/cpu (cpu0 and cpu1). At this point, it won't let me 'offline' the second processor. The echo command gives me an error. (By the Way: the 'online' file in each cpuX directory has read only permissions.) This error occurs after I've changed the permissions on the file to read/write.

I confirmed that the following parameters are set in my .config file: CONFIG_HOTPLUG, CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU, CONFIG_SMP, CONFIG_SUSPEND_SMP

I've done searches on google until my eyes popped out and can't find much information. I see others have had similar problems but they all seem to link back to ACPI in BIOS. I've already played with all of those settings and I didn't see any effect. One reason I don't think it's a BIOS problem is because a warm boot (reboot) seems to 'fix' it.

I've tried different kernels, different distributions, and different computers. I see similar behavior in all configurations. I feel like I'm missing something fundamental.

Fedora Installation :: CD/DVD Boot On Intel Core 2 Duo VPro Stalls?

Jun 13, 2009

I've been using Linux (Fedora) since 2005 (when I happily abandoned Windows) and loved every minute of it. No installation or other unresolvable problems. But now, I am totally stuck. A month ago, they just gave me a new desktop in the office: Dell Optiplex 960 with the Intel Core 2 Duo vPro chip. So I waited for Fedora 11 to come out, burned the x86-64 Install Media on a DVD, repartitioned the hard drive like I always do on new Windoze machines, and began installing. The install process gets to this announcement and stops:

mounting /tmp as tmpfs... done Then, after a 5-minute wait, if I push the power button on the computer for a hard reboot, then it says:

running install running /sbin/loader and then stalls for good. Then all I can do is hard-reboot again.

So, out of curiosity (and for other reasons), I tried booting the machine from other linux disks: Knoppix, and SystemRescue ( They all stall at different points. The funny thing is that both Fedora 11 x86-64 and SystemRescue happily boot on my personal one-year-old Lenovo T61 Intel Centrino Duo VPro laptop.

I get a feeling that somehow the Intel Core 2 Duo vPro is causing the problem. I also think that there is got to be someone else out there who either had this problem, or was able to install F11 on similar Dell box. Google search did not produce actionalbe answers for me.

General :: Only One Core Of Dual Core Processor Are Working

Mar 14, 2011

I recently read in a forum that by default the Linux kernel only activates one of two cores in a dual core processor. Searching online gave one option to find out and that was the mpstat command. I therefore ran the command and got the following output.As the result says, it shows only 1 cpu. I was wondering what I could do to activate both cores in my machine, and whether doing so was going to cause me any problems.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading From Core 4 To Core 10?

May 20, 2009

I have created a virtual machine of a system running Fedora Core 4 and I need to upgrade it to Fedora Core 10. Based on what I have read, it iis possible so I started theupgrade process. I get an error message saying that /dev/hda6 (my root paritition does not exist) even though it does.

Does the installer need to read a label from /etc/fstab? I executed tune2fs -L / /dev/hda6 amd ,and added LABEL=/ for the corresponding entry for fstab. but the FEDORA CORE 10 is still giving the same problems for the installation process. Should I upgrade to an intermediate verson like Fedora Core 7 first?

Fedora Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Doesn't Work For Core 12 And WinXP?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion m7480n PC with Windows XP installed on the C-drive. I successfully installed FC 12 onto the spare USB drive. When I rebooted the PC all I got was a blinking underscore at the extreme upper left position of a totally black screen. After a bit of experimenting I found that if I hit the F1 key during the boot process, go into the BIOS setup, do nothing within the setup, and press ESC to get out of the setup then the PC will go back into the boot cycle a second time. During the second time however a small text message appears with words to the effect "Press any key to enter GRUB..." after which the GRUB splash screen comes up with the choice for FC 12 or "Other" (referring to Win XP). At that point I can boot into either one.

General :: Processes And CPU 4-core - Which Core The Program Used?

Mar 26, 2011

I've a program that launches new processes, and wait for them to die before it exits. So, for example, my program is a process, and it launches 3 more processes, and when the 3 child processes end, it will exit.

As you see, at end of the example, the program used a total number of 4 processes.

1 - Now, I'm running this program in a CPU with 4 cores. This means that the program used each core for each process?

2 - How can I know which core the program used?

General :: Easiest Way To Upgrade From Fedora Core 4 To 14?

Jan 16, 2011

This is my first post and I figured why not start it off with a question!
First off, thanks for this site, I have a LOT of reading to do!

Secondly, my question is, what is the easiest way to upgrade my live server from Fedora core 4 to Fedora core 14 (latest stable version).

I have a box that is live with a couple of small active forums on it where the upgrade would take place.

I want to upgrade my box to stay up to date with the latest release of Fedora linux to take advantage of any enhancements or security fixes that has been implemented since version 4.

My box is colocated at a data center. Would it be best to upgrade from a CD or remotely? I have read there is quite a risk upgrading the OS remotely and some issues like broken files or dependencies could occur.

General :: Install Firefox (or Anything) On Fedora Core 2?

Jul 21, 2010

just did Red Hat Linux (Fedora Core 2) install. It's the only OC on the machine. Boots and everything seems to work just fine. Everything but the operator, that is!

I want to install FireFox and Thunderbird and AVG (free) antivirus so I first went to the Mozilla site for a download, only to discover that the best way to install is as part of a Package Manager.

Fair enough - but what is a package manager? Part of the distro? Where do I get one for these items?

UPDATE - I figured out the Package manager thing and no , FireFox is not an option, nor is Thunderbird or any antivirus.

If I can't get a package manager, the site tells me that I can install with me as the only user by downloading and typing in a couple of commands (Unzip and run, I think). But I get a report that I need a something or other file (library?) for it to run. How do I find that file and why would I be the only user? Surely as root I can set it up for all users can't I?

I guess the short(er) question is: How does a new user download and install a program onto a new setup without a package manager?

Question 2 - this install is for a class and the instructor wants screen prints as proof I'm doing certain operations. How do I get a screen print of, say, a history listing and can I save the screen print or view into a file for submission?

General :: Installed Fedora Core / But Computer Won't Reboot

Feb 17, 2011

I have a laptop, installed with window XP. I just installed Fedora Core, re-formatted all parition on the system, and installed default packages. The installation was successful. But after I took out the installation CD and reboot the system, chose Fedora core (the only banner), the screen just become green, and nothing else from there.

The only thing I am not 100% sure is, during the installation, my monitor was probed as unrecognized. I have tried both 'go with default' and specify one "LCD 1024x...", but either way, after the installation, system won't reboot.
