I have a SONY 52x DVD Writer in my Desktop. Initially it was okay.. For the past 2 months or so , the DVD tray is super sensitive.. When I press the "Eject" Button , it comes out and immediately the next second goes back in..Also I face great difficulty in loading a CD/DVD .The moment the DVD touches the tray , it sucks the tray back in.
As a result , I am not able to position the DVD, most of the time it gets stuck ..I cannot manually stop the tray from going in as I guess the spring for the tray will break.Should I replace the drive? Apart from this mechanical issue , the drive reads and writes properly.. I like Drives which have separate open and close buttons (not the ones which you push from the front)
I installed 10.04 on a Hyper-V virtual machine and a few hours later discovered that the server was unusually sluggish. Top revealed that ksoftirqd was sucking up around 97% CPU. Reading up on the issue focused on earlier kernel issues, which I knew didn't apply to 10.04. I eventually discovered that I set two CPU cores in Hyper-V. Decreasing this to just one CPU solved the issue.
I accidentally made a mistake of deleting the data I was suppose to shred. I cut and pasted sensitive documents from my external hard drive into my laptop. I want to shred those documents from my external hard drive but since I already did a cut/paste command those files are no longer accessible from my external hard drive. Is there a way I can fix this?
The touchpad on my Lenovo Z560 is to sensitive. I went into the mouse setting and adjusted the pointer speed sensitivity as low as possible but I don't see any difference. The lightest touch will move the pointer. I saw where some have modified the xorg.conf file but I can't find it in Ubuntu 11.04. From what I could find with Google this laptop uses a Synaptics touchpad. I installed Gpointing-device-settings and was able to change the speed but not the sensitivity. How can I make the touchpad less sensitive?
Question about the bug reporting system that I think is called ABRT Struggling with F15 and want to file a bug report, but the backtrace thingy says I should remove sensitive data first. Obviously a good idea, but the report is full of what to a non-programmer looks like gibberish - things like what I guess are hexadecimal numbers or memory addresses, none of which I understand. Can any of that incomprehensible stuff contain sensitive data, like encryption keys or anything someone would need to crack a machine? If I remove all of that then the bug report will be pretty sparse.
(Same question applies to SMOLT - machine profie report - as well) Or is "sensitive" just about the human readable data in the reports?
I'm brand new to Ubuntu (or any flavor of Unix/Linux, for that matter). I installed it (9.10) into a VM in Hyper-V with aplomb. However, the mouse isn't working, so I'm getting good at using the keyboard shortcuts right off the bat.Anyhoo, I'd like to get the mouse working. I downloaded Hyper-V for Linux 1.0 (integration components), but I can't seem to get it installed. I attach to the ISO from my VM and the CD shows up in Ubuntu, but then what? I tried running the setup.pl file, but nothing seemed to happen and my mouse still isn't working.
I have a hardware design which is completely tested and verified on windows OS. My hardware is connected to hyper terminal. Whenever I give a command from hyper terminal then my hardware will response in what way I need. As I am new to linux os I don't know how to open or how to configure hyper terminal in linux. I stopped my work completely.
1. problem For the first i have read on the hyper-v sites that debian is not supported: [URL] but other hand i had found information on the internet that debian will still work. [url]
2. Problem When installed debian on the virtual server it asked for a Network Connectivity Hardware and my network card was not found on the list and i have alredy my debian install img file selected sow how do select the supported exe file for my network card in hyper v if i have alredy mounted my iso file?
3. and my biggest problem My biggest problem is that i can't use my mouse in hyper v the error text is(se picted bellow)
i have experiemented different way to install Linux Integration Components 2.6.32 and had no luck intstalling sow my question is that becuse hyper v is not supporting debian that's why it's not working? Should i search for a another virtual server software? anybody can recomened a good virtualization software running on windows server 2008 r2?
I'm running a CentOS 5.2 vm on a W2K8 hyper-v core server. The problem I have is that when I reboot, the system time always resets itself to 6:00 am in the morning. I tried the /sbin/hwclock --systohc command but it hasn't taken hold.
I'm looking to install the Microsoft Hyper-V Linux Integration Services (IC) on F13. I'm running F13 fine on Hyper-V, but with IC I should get better performance. I've read that IC may be built-into 2.6.33 kernels, though I'm not sure if it is in F13.
i'm running some virtual Fedora installations on a windows server 2008 with hyper-v. Most of them are Fedora 12 and 13. Everything works fine for some years. Yesterday i want to upgrade a F13 machine to F14 by netistall. The upgrade ran without any problems. After the reebot the machine was off the network. All the networkconfigs by DHCP are OK, IP address, gateways, DNS settings and so on. But the machine can't ping or connect to other hosts. I tried an VM from scratch with both F14 i386 and x86_64 - same ****. This is the first time i had such a problem by upgrading Fedora machines.
I installed Fedora 15 on Hyper-V (Windows host). I installed to disk, rebooted. Now I'm off to installing the Integration services, but I've got a few problems: 1) Since it is not yet installed, it looks like the network is not functional. 2) From what I can see, I need to have a couple of things installed beforehand (GCC amoung other things)
The problem is that when I did this previously with Virtualbox, I was able to install the pre-requisites with yum. Now this won't work as I have no network. I can't use VirtualBox here at work as we have everything else running under Hyper-V so have no choice but to go this way (VB and HV can't live together on the same host). it's just so much harder to go through this installation with Hyper-V.
I am looking for step-by-step guide to do so. I can go for any easy to work with Linux distribution , may be UBUNTU. But Hyper-V page says it officially supports only SUSE and REDHAT, others can be done on owner's risk.
I dont need future compatibility etc as yet, just need to do some experiments, so any distribution would be fine. FYI - I am trying BOINC installation and testing.
Trying to install 10.10 netbook edition on my MSI U230 netbook from a USB drive. Keep getting the error "hyper transport sync flood error occurred on last boot" Press F1 to Resume. F1 causes just a reboot and the same thing happens. Anyone seen this error? It happens with both the netbook and desktop version.
Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition, hyper-v install Windows 2003 R2 for normal Internet use.hyper-v no Internet access after installing ubuntu10.10 64bit is the use of the legacy network adapter, whether or static MAC address and MAC address spoofing is not the Internet,ubuntu network card settings should be no problem.?
I recently used D�j� Dup for the first time. I chose to backup my home folder and most dot folders (do most of you backup all your home dir dot folders?). Even though D�j� Dup uses gpg, is there any sensitive data stored in dot folders within my home directory?
BTW, I did an incremental backup up to an older D�j� Dup backup folder on my NTSF external HDD and got an error. Is this because it is NTFS? I then did an incremental backup to a backup folder on my PC (ext4) and got no error. In the picture attached, would that setting mean the backup will continue to grow to a huge size? Would it be better to keep backups for a week?
I'm running a Fujitsu Lifebook T5010 with Linux Fedora Release 12 and the mouse is way too sensitive, jumps all over the screen when I touch it, especially if 2 fingers touch at the same time. I've tried all the system settings and nothing helps. It works fine with Windows XP Professional.
I have 2.6.18-164.2.1.e15 running on Hyper-v. I did yum update and noticed that kernel is upgraded to 2.6.18-164.9.1.e15. If I try to boot into the new kernel it hangs with message first "switchroot mount failed" and then "kernel panic". This is probably related to Hyper-v drivers installed in the old kernel. First question: Do you think this is correct? Is it possible to somehow disable Hyper-v drivers so I can boot into the new kernel and then reinstall drivers? There is nothing in Microsoft documentation about uninstalling Linux Integration Components.
I've installed CentOS 5.x (64 bit) on a Hyper-V Server R2. When I trying to install integration serices I get an error: [root@localhost ~]# cd /opt/linux_ic_v21_rtm/ [root@localhost linux_ic_v21_rtm]# make Building all modules... make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.el5/build SUBDIRS=/opt/linux_ic_v21_rtm/src modules make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.el5/build: No such file or directory.

I should note that I tried the Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 Live CDs and have experienced this in version 10.10's Live CD. I guess that narrows the problem to GNOME? Basically, moving the cursor horizontally takes less effort than moving it vertically. It feels as though there are separate axes for sensitivity and I don't know how to configure them. how to make it be normal again? (In Lenny, it was perfectly fine.)
