Installation :: Unable To Install GCC On Cygwin(Windows Vista)?
Mar 3, 2010
I am trying to install Cygwin and then NS2.GCC is not recognized by NS2.gcc -v gives the appropriate output.I dont know whats wrong.Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/specsgcc version 3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)
i'm trying to install ns-allinone-2.29.2.tar in windows 7 by using cygwin installer.. At the starting i got this message
Code: * Testing for Cygwin environment Cygwin detected Note: Cygwin install is still considered EXPERIMENTAL Checking Cygwin version is >= 1.3.12... 1.7.8 (should be ok) Checking filesystems are mounted as UNIX filetype... yes Checking default mode is binmode... yes
I installed C ygwin (full installation) on my PC with WinXP on it. Then I downloaded "SendIP" at: [URL].

I have a laptop on which I would like to install Fedora 10. As the laptop has a broken CD drive I'm looking for a way to install it somehow else.
As I have a second PC with Windows Vista and a VMWare installed, I was thinking if that could help me in any way?
Is there a way how I can transfere Vista Business into a server and my Laptop can install it from there?
Also I could manage to get the ISO on the Laptops HDD (which is currently Windows XP), but haven't found a way how I can install it as I mounted the ISO to a CD drive, can access the files but windows xp wont let me install it from there.
How do i install Foroda 15 side of windows vista,on my desktop, cannot see a box to select it, did install it once ask me to enter a root password when it installed it and rebooted a flashing icon to enter the root password but kept saying wrong password
i have recently started my masters degree program and i have to install fedora 11 for one of my courses. The problem is when i try to install fedora 11 on my laptop, it wipes out my windows vista installation. I want to keep vista. I have a sony vaio laptop model VGN-FW340D. 4GB RAM and 400 GB HD. i first shrink my hard drive to free up around 100 GB. Then i run fedora 11 DVD and let it make the partitions on my free space.. I have tried everything.. I chose use free space the first time, but i didnt work, it wiped out my vista, next time i chose custom layout and defined boot, root and swap partitions , but again it wiped out my vista.. I have read many guides to dual boot vista and fedora and have carried them out step by step, but nothing works.... Also i dont have vista installation DVD, i just have the recovery CDs, so everytime it wipes out my vista, i have to do system recovery, ive been trying for a week now, and its driving me crazy, i asked a friend of mine to help me out, he has dual boot system, and he tried it and it did the same thing, wiped out my vista... i just have one drive C: with two partitions, one small partitions which contains recovery files, and the rest of the partition has vista.......
I have a single hard-drive on a spare computer and I decided to try out Ubuntu on recommendation from a friend. I really like it now but at first I just dual-booted it, and now I want Vista gone. I know it's unnecessary to have just one OS but my hard-drive isn't particularly big and I'd prefer to have Ubuntu by itself. Can anyone tell me how to eliminate vista and leave Ubuntu as my sole operating system (I've all my files from computer on another computer so I don't have to worry about losing anything).
I have understood that Vista does not always play nice with third party partitioners and that it was best to use the tools *within* Vista to change its size.
I do not know, but the same might apply to Windows 7? Anyway I understand Windows 7 also has its own resize tools.
My advice to newcomers with Vista (or Windows 7) has been to use the Windows inbuilt tools to resize and then to leave un partitioned space on the drive, because until recently the Ubuntu Live CD has included an option 'Install into un partitioned space' or similar. Which was very easy.
However, with Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop CD the same option does not exist, so for beginners, or any nervous newcomer, the only practical option in most cases is to use the 'resize' facility in the Ubuntu installer.
This is a circular situation, if the Ubuntu facility resize is recommended to be avoided.
I would very much like to avoid having to tell them to use the 'advanced' option. Most of them are pretty jittery, from having used Windows for years.
I am aware that the 10.10 Alternate CD still includes 'install into un partitioned space'. Do I now tell people they need both a Live CD for initial tests and then also an Alternate CD for install?
They would see the install invitation in the Desktop CD live session and have to disregard it.
The Ubuntu 10.10 installer is, on the face of it, getting more friendly towards nervous newcomers.
Are the warnings about third party partitioners still relevant?
I wanted to try openSuse alongside with Windows Vista and Ubuntu. During the installation Suse wanted to delete my Windows partition. Of course I denied and stopped this installation, but now when starting my computer, the boot menu gives Vista, Ubuntu and Suse as a choice, but if I choose Vista, the Suse installation process is starting instead of Windows, there is no way to get Windows started (fortunately Ubuntu is working so that I can write this message).How can I get Windows starting?
I have just downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 and am trying to install it on a dual boot system with Windows Vista. I get as far as "Allocate drive space" but there are no partitions to choose from. I currently have Windows and Linux Mint on the hard drive and want to install Ubuntu in the same partition as Mint to overwrite it.
Having a major issue with my laptop. I am unable to boot into my Vista installation.I am currently posting this through my Fedora 11 installation which I had already. If anyone is interested, the BSOD error is:
As far as I know, a '7B' BSOD is usually a hard disk error but I am 100% sure the HDD is fine as I can read and write from both Fedora and Knoppix without issue. Steps taken so far: Obviously, I have tried the usual steps of trying to start windows in safe mode, last good config, and all of the F8 options. When they failed, I used fedora to check for some solutions online (Mostly useless answers from MS) and I found one successful case when a person flashed his BIOS back to an earlier time. Unfortunately, I cant get the BIOS update I got from the Dell website to boot from a USB drive (Says invalid boot disc - the BIOS on it is in the .exe format which I can't use in linux) and I do not have a floppy drive on the laptop.
So, I put in my Dell drivers and utilities CD hoping that it would give me some option to update (Or roll back) the BIOS but there was no such option. However, it did give me a load of diagnostic options including repair options by symptom so went with the "Unable to boot from BIOS". Unfortunately, that didnt help me at all. So, I got my Vista installation disc (OEM supplied) and managed to get to the repair menu (Which I had among my F8 options anyway) but this also has the option to reinstall. Unfortunately, it states that "Upgrade is unavailable" and that a clean install is the only thing I can select (At the expense of my files and settings).
As for the repair options, the automatic recovery doesn't seem to find any errors, asks to reset and see if all is well (It isn't). For some reason, system restore doesn't detect any restore points. There are no windows memory errors detected and I have no backups. So, i'm left with a command prompt that, by default, is asking for a file in this folder: X:/WINDOWS/System32/ I have no idea where it is getting the X: drive from - I have C and D drives for windows only. As per another online guide, I tried:
install fedora 11 on Vista I want to keep the windows boot loader and also install on a usb drive or a seperate partition that has 10GB free "install doesn't see partition's". Recently I installed ubuntu and had a major problem with booting, without having the usb drive connected I couldn't boot windows so uninstalled it. I'm trying to install now but install does'nt give me any option to select partitions from my drives one 320GB "portable, 3 partitions" and 80GB "main os 2 partitions one partition has 10GB free"

I can't be the first one with this problem. What am I missing?
I have setup Samba servers in the past, just none under SELinux. The last one I configured was a couple years ago, so I wouldn't doubt I'm a bit rusty.
---- Environment summary: Clean server install of CentOS 5.4 includes SELinux - lets call this 'server' - updated samba to 3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1
Client1 - Windows XP sp4 - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above Client2 - Windows Vista - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above
---- What works / what doesn't ------ Clients can see the server (XP and vista) in network neighborhood. The following does not work from windows (xp or vista) net view net view \server net view \server-ip net view \servershare
This does work on the server smbclient -L \server smbclient -L \server --user validuser smbclient -L \client1 --user validuser
---- What I have configured and tried (config/output below) -------- firewall ports for samba are open SELinux enforcing or permissive file context is set on share samba booleans are set

I have a program that is completed under Linux, it requires library tidy, PCRE and libcurl, which could be found in Cygwin too.
I could compile my linux program through Cygwin and produce an EXE file, however it do require 'cygwin.dll' installed by the users.
I am wondering if I could have someway to produce out a stand-alone EXE file that could run independently from Cygwin ? ( I don't mind to combine that cygwin.dll and the EXE together for a larger EXE file).
I recently installed Cygwin on my windows vista to practice on Linuxunix commands.I am unable to do a simple task of declaring variables on the command prompt I am trying:
$ vech=Bus $ echo $vech bash: vech : command not found
What am I missing? Do i need to add something to .bashrc? Also, I remember right click on the shell command gives the ability to copy or paste text from the shell. I am using Bash, how do I copy n paste text on shell window?
can't find a decent forum (sourceforge.net has an awkward forum platform). I am having trouble getting a2ps to run under Cygwin on a Windows-7 box. And if you know of a forum specifically for users of a2ps
I have Vista opertating system . I want to install Linx Redhat 5 in my Leptop. I had create parttion in my harddisk. I want to know at the boot time of linux where i want to set a path for new drive? Is there any link for that ?
can i install windows vista on a pc that has ubuntu 10.04 on it already. ubuntu takes up the whole disk. do i need to do a partion and then install windows on that? what would be a good program to do the partion, and are there any tricks to doing it. thanx in advance.
1. I have an ubuntu 10.04.1 lts installation iso image...2. I burned it to a cd and restarted my computer..3. When i reached to the partitions menua. There was not "install side by side" option.b. 70 gb of windows 7 part (which is OK)and a 249 Gb of free space were shown in-spite i have this space partition in 2 drives of 100 and 149 gb in windows.4. I wanted to install ubuntu in my F: drive (of 149 gb) but there was no method due to the above reason.What should i do? should i download it once again.I dont want to install with WUBI as someone told me it is not good because it slows down the computer(Is it so?)..
When I installed it, I used lvm to parition my hard drive and just let it do its thing. It shrunk my windows partition to 150 GB of 250 GB. I assumed it would let me dual boot just like ubuntu let me do but when I booted. It only gave me two options Desktop -- OpenSUSE 11.3 and failsafe -- opensuse 11.3. Those are also the two options it gives me when I look at the boot loader settings. Did I delete my Windows parition or did I just forget to specify to allow for a dual boot and how can i fix this so I can dual boot
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my Windows Vista Home Premium machine. My specs far exceed the requirements to install, so I know there's no problem there.On installation I receive an error somewhat through that says something like:Quote:An error occured:Permission deniedFor more information, please see the log file:C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalTempwubi-9.10ubuntu1-rev160.logSo.... I go to that file, and the last line in it is:Quote:OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso'I did run Wubi Installer as an Administrator, and unblocked it giving it full privileges.It's really annoying because my download speed is 80kb/s so it takes about 3 hours to download. During that 3 hours I can't use my internet so I have to wait, and wait, and wait, and then boom.error. And wubi can't pick up where it left off, you have to uninstall to reinstall, which sucks tremendously.
