I have problem with my printer HP Deskjet D1460. My printer is configured and works. When I send a file on the print, the printer clings a sheet of paper and starts to print, but a paper as was clean so clean and remains, after printing.
I have recently done clean installs of 11.4 on two computers and then done clean re-installs but still have the same problem. Each time, the install was without flaw and I could download the updates, when offered, in the install process. At the end of the install I can log into KDE and everything works. However, after shutting down, on reboot, I only get a command line login. I can either login and run startx or use su and do init 3 followed by init 5. This tells me I am getting to runlevel 5 but X isn't starting. Either of those approaches gives me the KDE login. However, after that I have to manually start the network in YAST. I also think I had had to restart CUPS but I have only got as far as installing a printer once so I can't be absolutely sure that happened. As I indicate, this is fully reproducible. Anyone give me a clue as to what is going on?
Upon boot up, I get lots of new lines added to log files in /var/log concerning apparent problems during boot up. The boot sequence does attempt to show the failure or success during each step as it transitions to the final run level, but is there a good manual or procedure on how to fix each transition, so as to cut down on the amount of pesky warning or error messages?
I am a bit concerned that running a system with warning messages is a bit like running a car low on oil. In the past the goal was to have a perfectly running linux system that came up all the way, and yes, I have seen such. This meant knowing how kernel things work, etc, but still, I would think we would want to pay attention to such things as
[ 1127.997470] ALSA usbaudio.c:1274: 2:1:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x1 [ 894.166132] isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16
and others and work to bring them to a minimum.
Right now I am working on things piecemeal as I go along, and it will take a lot of time.
I didn't dump the 10K's of log files into this message forum, in case someone asks to see the details, but I am just striving to have the system come up clean, and not with a message like:
Warning: Skipped 98 probes
(whatever that means?? did the kernel just mean that it knew that it is supposed to check 98 things but failed? or that 98 things should have gotten checked but didn't?)
I did a fresh install of SuSE 11.4 (WIN7 TOO) and changed my Larger HD1 to the first HD. I was installing and got this error first: the boot loader is installed on a partition that does not lie entirely below 128GB The system might not boot if BIOS supports only lba24 (result is error during install grub mbr) status loc dev/sdb6
I continued with the install and then got:
Yast2 error occured while installing GRUB ver 0.97 (640k lower/3072k upper memory) [minimal bash-like lineediting is supported? for the first word, TAB lists possible command completition anywhere else TAB lists possible completion of a device/filename] grub setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --force4-lba (hd0,5) (hd0,5) Error 25 disk read error grub> quit
Did a clean install with 11.2 after being very impressed with the LiveCD. After installation process finished, laptop booted up and I had a green screen, no icons and a mouse cursor. REALLY liked the way the OS performed on the LIVECD and would like to give it a real shot.I can install Fedora 11, Ubuntu, Madriva and Mint Linux with no problem on the same Toshiba laptop.
There are several posts here about not being able to boot without the install disk, which is also my case. I imagine the solution for me should be easy, because I only have a single installed OS on this machine, which is a MacBook Pro 2.1. Here's the result of fdisk -l:
Code: WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
Partition table entries are not in disk order sda4 is a partition that did not appear in the partition overview when I installed the operating system. I thought I'd look for help here while I continue to research the problem myself.
I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?
I can't login due to my file-system being full. I found the main area with the large usage. Var/log is taking 99.5% of my var folder. On a full file-system scan Var/log is taking up 85% of disk use. File-system capacity is 36 gig. Temp is cleared after each boot.
What can I do to clean up any unnecessary files. I can only boot in safe mode and have limited navigation skills. To get scan results I booted a live-disc.
I was trying to upgrade to 11.2 from 11.1 by upgrading the OS online. However my internet connection failed and the upgrade has now messed up my system. I have a dual-boot system with Windows XP and I'm wondering if it would be OK in getting the DVD and selecting update? Or do I have to change the boot log etc?
Okay I did a clean network install on 11.2 on my test machine.Old gateway box but it had min requirements. It will load completely into failsafe mode but will not complete a normal boot option.The default Green background images comes up and the cursor comes up, but I let it sit for 30 minutes and nothing. I did a hard reboot, still hung on cursor and green back ground. Booted again but this time choose failsafe, boot up completely. Am I doing something wrong? I have installed many many version of Linux in the past never had a problem like.
I am completely new to OpenSuse and just installed it. However, I wanted things encrypted for work and chose LVM2 with password encryption upon installation.However, I didn't change any of the values.Now I see that my home partition is only about 30 Go and I cannot mount the oter 300GB that sit on another partition. When I try to mount it through nautilus I have to enter my password and then get :Unable to mount 307 GB LVM2 Physical Volume
so excuse me if I don't use the correct terminology, but what I have are two USB external hard drives joined into one drive using LVM.I originally set this up using 11.2 and then used it for months on a system with 11.1. The LVM drive would show up in the file system as /dev/mapper/Media-Media.I then upgraded that system from 11.1 to 11.4 using a clean install and a "minimal server" selection. Now, the LVM doesn't show up anywhere. In the YaST disk partitioner, it shows a "/dev/Media" as being of the type LVM2 Media with no logical volumes
I did try to do an update from 11.1, but that killed the thing dead, no x, no kde, just a command line log in.So clean install, leave /home alone and we seem to be firing on all cylinders, except.Hopeless networkmanager still will not connect, it hasn't in any version of K4, truly, from my point of view, an embarrassment as the default network connector. But, trying to re-install WICD I have run into a snag.When I click on one click in Webpin, it asked if it should install it, Oh yes please, asks for the su password and. opens konqueror with the background description of the RPM. But will not install. I tried downloading the RPM and it gives me a bit of a list of dependency problems. None of which I can seem to resolve through the usual repos.Also in the 11.2 install I have been defaulted to the "desktop" kernel, when I used to have a PAE, should I change the kernel to PAE?
I messed up the first installation of Fedora on my server. My setup is as follows: Fedora and Gnome - NFS system, No dual boot (Windows or anything) Fedora ISO DVD downloaded No kickstart or other tools. how to set this up, from the time I insert the disk and have it boot up (configged already to boot from it). I know how to wipe it clean at intall time. Is that the root directory? And, is /boot the actual boot directory? I'm just having a hard time uderstanding that. As I said, I just want a quick itemized list, step 1, step 2, etc, from partitioning, creating file system, mounting, etc. in the right order.
We see posts here occasionally with complaints like, "my PC doesn't finish booting; it goes so far, then I get a black screen." There will follow the usual suggestions to check the video drivers, or if it's a new installation, to check the DVD MD5 checksum, etc., etc.
I suggest checking the hardware as well, especially if you haven't made any changes recently. If your PC seems to have been running normally for quite a while, and this is a problem that has only recently (and relatively suddenly) popped up, check the connections. Make sure the RAM is seated properly. (This is especially important if the PC has been moved around recently.)
But most of all, check for dust buildup! We had a PC yesterday that started shutting down after about 3-4 minutes. This morning, it was a lot colder in the shop, so it lasted almost 5-6 minutes -- and that was our clue. My assistant tore into the machine and didn't see anything obvious; he then removed the fan over the CPU heatsink and saw a ton of dust. (On this particular PC, the fan obscured direct observation of the heatsink fins.)
I am trying to figure out if I can just do a clean install and still be able to keep any files, ex. music, scripts, pics ect. without having to burn the contents to disk or upload them to an external device? I have like 150gs of info I need to save I have an external but it will take a long time to copy everything so if you know any way to do this wile doing a new install.
I was trying out things, many different scenarios, many uninstalls, and yestarday just ran janitor ? now I don't have panels, some buttons missing, but many are still here (but unistalled earlier). I would like to make a cleanup in applications/ the button graphics are "blanks" but their name is still there, and who know what else might be conflicting in the background. any useful commands for check-and-clean-and-or-restore?
Just made a clean install (10.10) on a new AUS N53J - all works fine, except sound - cannot get any sound from speakers - I noticed many problems with the sound on this version of Ubuntu - still no sound...
I have a PC with a 120GB HDD which is clean and formatted.I have commenced install of 10.10 from CD. It starts fine and I run through to the who are you window. I have filled in all the details but the "FORWARD" button is grayed out. Also, the progress bar eventually stops altogether. Is the system hanging, or is the install just slow?
I have 10.10 Desktop right now.. and was considering the 11.04 beta 2 upgrade. However, when 11.04 comes out.. first.. will I be able to update to 11.04 final from 11.04 beta (if so is that automatic.. or do I need to do clean install)? Second, will the 11.04 beta 2 upgrade.. as well as the 11.04 final release.. remove/replace old 10.10 stuff.. or is an upgrade going to leave a lot of stuff around and thus a clean install is the best way to go?
I have a lot of stuff.. bookmarks, tools, data, etc on my linux box.. and while I do have a 2nd drive that I can move stuff to, if the upgrade path is as clean (or almost as clean) as a clean install, I am fine with that. I recall from Windows upgrades, there is generally a lot of remnants left behind that can slow things down or just sit around taking up space for no good reason. So I want to avoid anything like that if possible.
