Software :: Unrecoverable Fatal Error - Cannot Open File List
Sep 6, 2009
This morning when attempting to upgrade (aptitude update; followed by aptitude safe-upgrade) my system I started receiving the following error:
Preconfiguring packages ...
(Reading database ... dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
unable to open files list file for package `apache2-doc': Stale NFS file handle
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
It doesn't seem to matter what repository I use or what particular package that I attempt to upgrade (all or just a single package). (In particular, apache2-doc is not even a package being upgraded, although it is installed on the system.) I have rebooted, run apt-get clean, run apt-get check, etc. to no avail. I am running a standard Debian (5.0.2/Lenny) desktop PC and am not running any NFS processes, client or server.
i have ubuntu karmic 9.10 and when i try to update anything or install anything the a very similar error occurs."(Reading database . . . 55%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error , aborting: files list file for package `com.palm.net.precoddr.fcoaster' contains empty filenameit repeats this message 3 times then gives up i believe.

My USB stick is this one: [URL] I can't get it to scan my frequencies. PC finds the stick (lsusb):
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 15a4:9016 Afatech Technologies, Inc. AF9015 DVB-T USB2.0 stick When I plug it in, dmesg shows this:
[ 5680.696043] usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 [ 5680.834917] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [ 5680.849872] af9015: tuner id:179 not supported, please report! [ 5680.852951] Afatech DVB-T 2: Fixing fullspeed to highspeed interval: 10 -> 7
But if the directory is created, then after the same command I have
scanning /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/lv-Riga using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0' main:2273: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 19 No such device
I found on the internet a firmware for my USB HDTV DVB-T stick named "dvb-usb-af9015.fw" and copied it into /lib/firmware/ but I have not seen any difference with that.
I am trying to upgrade my NAS with anew toolchain, gcc-4.5.2. The NAS have been "hacked" fonz_plug, that contain a gcc version 4.1.3 with uClibc. I have download all needed tar files and done the following.My goal is to upgrade the gcc to 4.5.2 and replace the ucLibc on the system with a GNU libc.
# Pass one # # binutils ./configure --prefix=/ffp --libdir=/ffp/lib --includedir=/ffp/include --with-gmp=/ffp --with-mpfr=/ffp But when I try to compile the gcc with ../configure --prefix=/ffp --libdir=/ffp/lib --includedir=/ffp/include --enable-__cxa_atexit --with-float=soft --enable-languages=c,c++ --with-build-sysroot=/ffp --with-build-time-tools=/ffp/bin --with-system-zlib --enable-threads=posix --disable-bootstrap
I wasn't able to fix it... poor Lappy ), and everything seemed to be going just swimmingly. Then, when I was testing out one of my old scripts in Octave today, it barked at me about needing epstool to print plots to file.
I installed Fedora 12 at school on my external hard drive, using Windows Virtual PC 2007 to run Fedora at school on a dell PC with XP 2000, which works at school!However at home, i am using Windows 2007 os, I install Windows Virtual PC 2007, wasn't successful in running Fedora 12.As soon as Fedora begin to boot, an error message appeared which said,"An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered.The virtual machine will reset now".below the message it gives you only option to reset the virtual machine, however this is a vicious cycle
"The installer has encountered an unrecoverable error.A desktop session will now begin so you can investigate the problem or try installing again".It didn't get as far as giving me the option to check cd disc for defects, try without installing etc.9.04 and 9.10 installed fine on my two hard drives, so presumably this is not a hardware problem. During a desktop session I noticed a prompt to install proprietary drivers (graphics?). Could this be the problem? I don't have anywhere near the knowledge to 'investigate the problem'.
I'm a first time user of xubuntu or any other linux derivative operating system and I was wondering if I could get some assistance on installing xubuntu 11.04 on my old laptop. When I downloaded the iso and burned it into a DVD+R, I inserted it into the machine and let it ran. It started well and I checked the disc's integrity before continuing with the installation and it passed that. Now, as I enter the installation screen, I select my language then click forward but the installer freezes for a few minutes and later disappears only to be replaced with an error message, "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again." and it does as it says and boots into a demo mode. I try installing again through the "Install Xubuntu.." link on the desktop but it follows the same problem.
My laptop's specifications are as follows: ACER TRAVELMATE 290 256 RAM (240 usable) Intel Pentium M processor 1500 MHz 599 MHz Video card: 64 MB internal Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller Sound card: Realtek AC97 Audio
I got the error: "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now." I have edited the options in installation screen with adding noreplace-paravirt at the end of boot parameters. but still have this error and FC installation does not continue.
I'm getting the following error when booting from the 10.04 live CD: Installation Failed. The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.
I checked the CD for defects, and even tried re-downloading/burning to a new disc, but got the same problem. I tried booting in to the LIVE session then installing from the desktop but I still got the same error. I have had 9.10 running on here fine, and after running a Kubuntu 9.10 disc I had to hand to check it would work, that installed fine (hence the auto-partitions you will see in my info dump below). Here is some information about my system, let me know if I've missed anything. I've also included a copy of the syslog below.
I seldom mess with Wubi because I prefer a true dual-boot but due to a recent reply in the following bug report I thought it might benefit Colin Watson to have a first hand source of the problem:[URL]Then "bcbc" replied in post #273 and shortly after the thread was closed Now, I've had precious little time to do much testing and such lately due to an overdue remodel that was needed due to a kitchen fire over two years ago, and weather related problems have just nailed me big time to-boot, so I'm sorry if I seem more scatter brained than usual, but such is life.
Anyway, I did as "bcbc" suggested but it appears that Verbose Mode is no longer supported in 10.04 Wubi I do not currently have a working camera to take a shot of the options provided if hitting Esc after the initial install but it just drops me to a grub> prompt.I've tried disabling every bit of the Win XP security, defragging, reducing and increasing the default size of the Wubi install, etc, etc, etc!Any Wubi experts out there?I'd like to test for regression regarding those grub2 updates but I can't unless I can install 10.04 Wubi on this test machine Also, I can't currently network more than one computer, so ssh is just not possible. I have no room! The moral of that story is to NEVER live in a home while you're remodeling
I am trying to run Fedora 14 from Virtual PC 2007 on Windows XP. Every time I try to boot it, it flashes some code and shows a blue screen with the Fedora logo for a fraction of a second. It goes to an ms-dos type screen with a white background and a single "[" in black. Then I receive an error saying "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now." I have googled many times and have scavenged the Fedora site for a solution, yet I have not found one for Fedora 14.
since the recent upgrade to Maverik every time I boot this error message appear on the top of the screen: "modprobe: Fatal: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/modules.dep: no such file or directory" fter that plymouth starts without any graphics and the first visible object is the login interface (GDM)
Code: sudo apt-get upgrade Lots of text (Reading database. dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting: unable to open files list file for package `grub-common': Input/output error E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
I realise KPDF is quite old now but as this issue may recur when I move to a newer distro (well, newer than Hardy) with Okular I thought I'd better ask.I use Gnome, but prefer KPDF to evince when viewing PDF files. However, KPDF's "Open Recent" list behaves very oddly - there's no apparent way to clear it, and items which were on the list one day aren't on it another day (coinciding with old items reappearing on the list).
Is there any way to clear this list?Similarly, is there any way to clear the list of recently opened files in the "Location" drop-down box in File-Open? (which also seems to mysteriously lose list items inbetween reboots).
I have updated to ubuntu 10.10, but when I try to compile chromium on ubuntu, I get this error:
In file included from /usr/include/gtk-2.0/gdk/gdkcairo.h:28, from /usr/include/gtk-2.0/gdk/gdk.h:33, from app/active_window_watcher_x.cc:6: /usr/include/gtk-2.0/gdk/gdkpixbuf.h:37: fatal error: gdk-pixbuf/gdk-pixbuf.h: No such file or directory
What I don't understand is why gtk-2.0/gdk/gdkpixbuf.h complains that gdkpixbuf/gdk-pixbuf.h is not found. And how can I fix it?
make install then i got this error: postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix): No such file or directory make: *** [install] Error 1 I don't understand why it's checking the usr/libexec folder for the daemons although I've set the folder to /opt/product/postfix-2.6.5/libexec in the makefile. Here is also the cat of my makedefs.out:
I get an error when running slapt-get. The error is: "slapt-get: error while loading shared libraries: libsas.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".
I've booted the Slackware disk # 1 and unchecked everything except the libraries category and installed them. I rebooted and it still says this. I get this same error before I put the disk in and rebooted to install ALL libraries. I really need help. BTW, I can't load KDE.I found a pkg manager already installed called "slackpkg". But I really need help on this library issue!! I uninstalled it (slapt-get) anyway, so forget that!
