Ubuntu :: Switch Back To /usr/bin/perl After Installing Second Perl?

Aug 14, 2010

I recently reinstalled the B module for perl. Now I found out it didn't just do that, it installed a whole new copy of perl into /usr/local/bin/perl. When I type 'which perl' at the terminal, it says '/usr/local/bin/perl' instead of '/usr/bin/perl'. Normally, this wouldn't bother me. But I installed the one in local/bin without threading support. The one that comes with the system already is build with threading support, which is why I want to switch back to the system perl, and possibly remove the one in /usr/local/bin.

So how do I change it so that the result of 'which perl' returns as '/usr/bin/perl'? And what do I have to do to remove /usr/local/bin/perl?

The reason I need threading support is because I'm designing a file copier that copies several chunks of a file simultaneously to speed up the copying process. Guaranteed a useful script if it works.

Ubuntu :: Won't Boot - Died - Startx The Screen Flashes And Brings Me Back To A Failed To Open Devices Report

Mar 30, 2011

After tweeking some graphics settings, and replacing some hardware, ubuntu won't boot. Being left in the X session (CTRL + ALT + f7), it's what looks like a log:


^ and that's where it hangs. So I went into ctrl alt f1, and logged in with my user/pass, and did the command: startx the screen flashes, and brings me back to a failed to open devices report.


I tried re-installing GDM, but turns out that the PC isn't actually online, hence unable to install GDM after uninstallation. So I downloaded the gdm .deb, and tried to install it from a USB flash drive, but I get dependency errors. I'm at a loss here, I could really use some help, this is the PC that has all my data on it, 450 GB +, I'd love to not have to transfer that over to a new installation!

Fedora :: Cannot Update Perl Due To A Missing Dependency

Nov 1, 2010

I cannot update perl due to a missing dependency.

Installed perl:
[kbs1@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep perl-5


downgrade also does not work. I just updated F12 to F13 using DVD and this occured. Also prevents me from doing "full" yum system update, these packages always fail. I do not understand the problem, it says that perl-libs 5.10.1-112 requires perl-libs 5.10.1-112, but I have that installed.

Sep 10, 2010

I did a bunch of updates, in sid, no issues. But when I rebooted the next day the log in had chanded. No problems logging in, the appearance had changed, and you now have to use the mouse to click on your name to open the password box, where before you could hit enter and get the same results. It is not much, but I have been trying to to restore it back with out much luck. I've played with gdm and gdm3 and a couple of other things but no luck. I did see a update for log in but have not been able to figure out the next step.

Ubuntu :: Back In Time - Restore After Re-install ?

Sep 12, 2010

I have my system and software and data on my computer on an internal drive. On that system I have Back in Time backup software. I use Back in Time, to backup my data to an external drive.

Question: If my computer dies or my internal drive fails, I have to completely re-install everything including my system and Back in Time. If I want to restore my data from the good external drive, how can I do that with Back in Time? Doesn't it keep the Snapshots info or preferences on my dead drive? Or do I need to point my freshly re-installed Back in Time just to the data drive and it will recognize the snapshots etc. automatically?

CentOS 5 :: Best Way To Back Up And Restore Installation 'profiles' For Given Serve

Dec 15, 2009

We're trying out a few backup strategies and I had a question pertaining to CentOS installations. I was trying to think of the best way to back up and restore installation 'profiles' for a given server. In terms of a basic backup strategy.I currently back up the /etc, /var, /usr and /home directories with an rsync-based script, which has been working nicely so far.I also have a script which does a yum list installed on a certain configured server. It then 'diffs' this against the output from a base install of CentOS. The point of this is to figure out the packages installed for this server 'profile' so I can restore them.

Ideally, it would be nice if there were a way to generate kickstart files in reverse for a given server config. I was wondering what the best way to do this would be. Currently, I'm concerned enough about failures that I'm imaging stuff using Mondo Rescue.

Software :: Tool To Back Up And Restore An NTFS Partition With Bad Sectors?

Jan 27, 2010

I've been using Knoppix "Live CD" 6.2 and partimage 0.6.7 to back up and restore my Microsoft Windows XP system volumes on various computers. However, partimage seems to be unwilling to back up one of these NTFS volumes which has bad sectors, some unreadable data. It hits that and stops. But this appears to happen at the same place when I have already used Windows to find and mark and, I assume, remove from use, the bad sectors. Hmm. I thought they'd be ignored. It appears I thought wrong.

If so, which of several other Linux-based or other partition backup tools may be suitable for the task - to ignore or tolerate bad sectors? The main goal is to be able to update the volume subsequently in a way that may be a terrible mistake, and in that case to restore the previous version. Sometime not too far in the future, I suppose I have to think about replacing the disk.

CentOS 5 :: Missing Dependency : Perl(LWP::UserAgent) Is Needed By Package Sblim-sfcb?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm trying to install Dell Openmanage, which requires sblim-sfcb.Normally this wouldn't be a problem but it requires LWP::UserAgent to be installed.However there are no RPMs for LWP::UserAgent. There are RPMs for perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm, which people say should work.However yum doesn't see anything with libwww as an option so that won't work either.Running CentOS 5.5

Note: I do have LWP::UserAgent installed via cpan, however the RPM won't compile without the actual LWP::UserAgent RPM installed.

Fedora Installation :: F14 Gone Missing / What To Get It Back?

Dec 6, 2010

I have just installed Fedora 14 on a machine which already has Windows XP on one hard drive and Ubuntu 10.10 on another. Fedora was supposed to be installed alongside Ubuntu

The installation appeared to be successful in that the process came to a natural end and I was told to reboot. However on rebooting I found that the boot menu did not contain an option to choose Fedora and was the same as it had been before I installed Fedora.

I opted to boot Ubuntu and then opened a terminal and typed 'sudo update-grub' and got a message to the effect that grub.conf was being created. When I rebooted again, there was still no sign of Fedora.

Is there any way of getting Fedora to boot? I am not sufficiently experienced in Linux to try anything else as the computer that I am using is not mine and I don't want to wreck the data of the owner. I did do 'sudo fdisk -l' whilst booted in Ubuntu and I saw that there are Linux partitions on both hard drives but I don't know how to tell which is Ubuntu and which is Fedora

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar On U10.04 LTS / Get That Back?

May 8, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu and recently just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (10.04). However after upgrade, Gnome seems misbehave every time I boot-up my machine.

On every boot, the following problem occur:-

1- Missing Title bar on all window.
2- Mouse pointer display as 'X'.

My current workaround was to set [Appearance Preference] > [Visual Effect] to 'EXTRA' on each boot.

I tried to set Visual Effect to 'NONE' before reboot but no luck. Reseting Gnome to default
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
also not helpful.

Is there a way to fix it, say: reinstalling Compiz, Flushing FastBoot or the like.
