Alright story is: i needed apache tom cat to work on my project, i don't wish to install it in ubuntu so i can keep my system clean and fast. I installed virtual box OSE. Do i need a disk to run? Cause it says "Fatal no bootable medium found system halted" Edit: alright i inserted my winxp disk and now it is installing, i need to know if any change i make will damage my computer? Since i allocated only 10GB to this virtual disk, now it is formatting it in NTFS...i hope it won't have any conflict with ubuntu's ext4 file system.
The system asked me to reboot and I just shut down the computer.Some hours ago, I wanted to start the computer and the system halted after the first logo showed of Ubuntu, after 15 minutes waiting, nothing happened. I tried to push keys on the keyboard, nothing helped (I even couldn't put on CAPS or num lock on the keyboard).After a secoind reboot I didn't even saw the Ubuntu logo. When there's a black screen, it just sits there.I have no idea if there was a kernel update (I assume there was, because the system wanted me to reboot)
I have it running on my system (version 11.1.1) and i have installed only the kernel. i want to install several packages but i can't. yast2 -i bison-devel but i get this error:Error Download failed: File '/content' not found on medium [URL]...
FYI - Bug Team: I have had this issue all day today:
PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dmitry_serpokryl:/Enlightenment-cvs-core-metapackage/openSUSE_11.2/'
Zypper ref stalls: Repository 'Apps Update' is up to date. Repository 'Extra' is up to date. 1Repository 'KDE 4.4.4 packages (openSUSE_11.2)' is up to date. 1Repository 'QT' is up to date. 2File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium [URL]... And YAST: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium [URL]... Has the repo been moved?
Since yesterday my computer behaves really strange. I fear it's a hardware issue. At most I did some minor updates, but no big software or OS change.
When I turn it on it goes immediately to [url]
I guess it reads
Code: Chasis intruded Fatal Error... System Halted.
So this happens before the boot manager... When I press the reboot button it goes to the boot manager and works seemingly fine - all I noticed that it doesn't remember the time, or better remembered the time form the last usage but doesn't count it forward. While using the time seems to pass in a normal speed.
What could this be? Some chip on the mainboard broken? Some BIOS virus (does something like that exist?) Or maybe just a cable which got lose?
I don't know which other informations could be helpful. I built it myself some years ago and the parts are pretty random (back then I didn't even know about linux compatibility nor used it at all). I have a dual boot with openSUSE 11.2 and windows xp, but the network card is deactived in xp for a year at least already.
I can not get this DVD to mount for love nor money. It works fine in the crappy Windows POC I just pulled it from to replace a DVD that was doing a similar thing. I'm guessing the last update sent something wonky.
The above is stuff that other threads all over the internet seem to ask for with mount related problems but most of it is semi-gibberish to me. I've learned tonight what a mount point is, how to make one, what the columns in fstab is, how to (sort of) use the mount command in the CLI, that I might want to look in dmesg for stuff using grep, that google sometimes has more noise than signal and that I don't want to fix computers for a living.
Errors like mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0 are fairly common too BTW. I'm going spare and spent what should have been a chilled out night of DVD watching getting stressed and digging about in the guts PCs. Had I known it was a hardware problem I would not have bothered changing drives over. There is a disk in the drive and the errors are the same if that is a CD or a DVD.
I installed openSUSE 11.3 on my iMac along with "Mac Snow Leopard, Windows 7" to make it a "Triple Boot". But after installing the "GRUB/LILO", it does not chain with the boot loader "REFIT" that I use. Each time I try to boot into "Windows/openSUSE", it shows a message: no boot device found, insert boot disc". So why isn't the "GRUB/LILO" working?

I using an old 1999 PC 512 MB RAM used to have W-2000. I had difficulties getting CD to be boot drive. I had to remove floppy drive to stop it from being the first drive. I'm using the Linux Starter Kit with Ubantu Live 9.10. My PC was having issues so I skipped the dual boot and went straight to a clean install. I had to double click on WUBI in the disk directory to get the install started. Install appeared to be going fine about 60%... then I got distracted to fix lunch for sick kid. When I came back screen was black and I could not wake up screen with mouse or keyboard. I turned off PC.. restarted and have message that says NO ROM BASIC System Halted.
The computer went into low graphics mode all by itself and then later threw a error that said incompatible processor system halted!the computer was getting really slow and made alot of noise.later the computer did something stranger..it restarted but normally when my computer normally restarts it bypasses the password page setup in bios of the computer. This time I still had to enter a password before it could reboot.Another thing...when it the ethernet cable was connected to the computer (internet connection was on) it was slow when it was unplugged it was not.I have read that unless you're running a server or something it is highly unlikeley you'll be hacked.
1. had working xp install on 320 gb hard disk with only one partition. 2. backed up and used easeus to shrink and create new partition on same hard drive. 3. tried to install from a working live cd but got medium not found error. 4. looked for fix but didnt find it so i used wubi to install it to the partition i created. 5. worked but annoyingly slow so looked for guide to switch from wubi to full install. 6. followed guide and it installed to a new partition i made with gparted and it formatted that one to ext4 but i still had the wubi install which i didnt want. (btw, non-wubi is much > wubi install). 7. went to xp to uninstall wubi, delete wubi partition, and grow full ubuntu install partition with easeus. easeus requires reboot.
8. restart comp to find an error that said no partition found and something else about grub rescue. 9. try live cds but hard drive not detected and tried win7 and xp but they didnt even get into setup 10. make plan: get bro to format my hardd disk using his compyter so i csn try ubuntu onw more time
i got a bunch of different types of errors but im really close to giving up on it entirely.
I've just upgraded my wife's netbook to UNR 9.10. This seemed to go well and the netbook has been working fine since. Yesterday my daughter used the netbook with out any issues, but when my wife tried it halted during boot with:
Swap waiting for UUID: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
After a couple of reboots it started working fine, but looking at /etc/fstab the entry for swap is different to the UUID shown in blkid Do I just update fstab with the UUID from blkid?
I'm trying to install 10.10 64bit on a DFI X48 mainboard with 8Gb RAM, I've tried installing from the Desktop CD, Alternate CD and USB stick, but all attempts fail with uncompression error
-- System halted
I've run memtest86 and the RAM passes OK, I've even tried running the install with just 4Gb RAM but without any luck. I've even tried three different CD/DVD drives.10.04 64bit runs from the Live CD without any problems, but 10.10 isn't playing ball...
I just started setting up a linux box in the office...I have some experience with ssh commands but not setting up a linux system and stuff.The box is connected to our network but I have no clue how to make windows & osx talk with it. How can I go by doing that and also setting up an apache server to be able to connect through network. Right now I have apache/linux/mysql running it works when i go to localhost, but I would also like to let all the computers in office to access it. I would guess that will deal with virtual host which I know how to setup. I just need to setup an IP.
I just installed openSUSE 11.4 and after the installation of VirtualBox I coudn't start it. The icon at the cursor kept jumping but no response. I tried to run the binary from Konsole and I got the following message:VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyFileInternal: Failed to open "/usr/lib/virtualbox/VMMR0.r0": No such file or directory (2)I checked YaST to see which packages were installed:
I've read plenty of tutorials for this kind of thing, and they all seem to be about putting a full fledged OS on your flash drive. All I'd like to do is put the install medium (slackware dvd) onto my 8GB flash drive to install it to my old desktop's HDD.
