Software :: Waiting For Other Tasks

May 26, 2010

for the past several months now, whenever the YUM-deamon goes to automatically update, it just says "waiting for other tasks" and after about 10 min it says "can't get yum lock, other program accessing yum" or something to that effect.i get the same message if i try to manually install programs using the graphical program in gNu.

is there another deamon that also could be using yum or the database for programs? i haven't had too much time to trouble shoot the past few months, so i can't give you better descriptions i'm afraid.

Software :: Set Top Box With Scheduling Of Tasks On 2.6.12

Mar 10, 2010

We are seeing some strange behavior on a Set top Box with the scheduling of tasks. We use 2.6.12 kernel. The issue is when we create a Task, say task1 with a priority of 46.But,this task is not Scheduled to run by the scheduler right away. It gets chance to run only after sometime. What we see here is that I create many other tasks with lower priority than task1,but they are immediately scheduled. Ideally, the task1 should have got scheduled before certain other low priority tasks as it has higher priority. Any patch is available wrt this?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Locate The Evolution Tasks

Apr 14, 2011

Recently installed 10.10 netbook edition, and evolution is behaving strangely. Albeit I've never used it before, but having read the documentation and googled it a bit I'm still lost. I cannot create or manage task lists. It's as if their functionality has been completely cut out of ev calendar. When I try to go to File->New->Task List, the Task list option does not appear in the menu (not greyed out, nothing). Can't find the button that's supposed to be there either. I've also checked synaptic for evolution task packages, but no avail.

Ubuntu :: Tasks Not Showing In Evolution?

Jun 9, 2011

I'm using Evolution in Gnome 3 and I'm having this rather annoying issue---whenever I make a new Task, it does NOT show up in the Tasks bar. Even if I try searching for it, the task doesn't show up (even making a new Task List doesn't show up), which makes me think it was never saved properly in the first place. I also tried seeing if there was any sort of error while running Evolution by opening it via the terminal, but I don't get anything. Does anyone else have this issue? Is this a known bug with Evolution

Ubuntu :: Evolution Tasks Missing

Jun 20, 2011

Yesterday, I found that the majority of my tasks on Evolution (2.28.3) had just disappeared. I last did a backup of my system 2 weeks ago but in that time important data has been added to my tasks lists on Evolution. I've read around and found that the problem may be fixed by rebuilding evolution-data-server (see here). However, if this means re-compiling evolution-data-server from the package manager, well, I don't seem to keen on doing that unless I can get confirmation of how to implement it, i.e. how do I rebuild evolution-data-server?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Do Mac OS Finder Tasks

Jun 20, 2011

Tried to use Ubuntu 11.4 to assist in recovering a windows xp system. Ran from cd without installing. Failure. Could not find Windows hd. How do I list all storage media. Where is the Mac OS Finder/Windows explorer? Could not find Terminal. Ran search, but seems limited to just your user data. How do I do a search for the terminal applications. Did get some worthless display of all installed programs, but could not launch application. Is there a way of switching the old User Interface from the running from CD version?

Ubuntu :: Run A Script With Scheduled Tasks?

Jun 27, 2011

i have made a search on this subject and i always find the cron to be the solution for me. But i am asking because i think what i want can be done differently. i have a command line to grab stream and save it. i want this command to be run at different time (hours) on specific days. i should use the "at", as far as i saw here on the forum. But are there other way to do it? can i have a simple script that i run the day of the event, before this occur?

General :: Automate Tasks In Linux

Feb 10, 2011

I'd like to get the information about automatization of the tasks in Linux, more specifically in Fedora with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on).The application (developed in C) needs to be started automatically when the computer is initialized. I've read about cron but I guess it's not a solution in this case because whenever computer starts the application must run once.I also have read about the/etc/ rc.local file but I made some tests changing it and they didn't work, the computer starts asking me the login and password but nothing run after that.The inittab was the same. In this way, someone know how to initialize an application developed in C when the computer starts?

Debian :: Administrative Tasks Fail To Start

Sep 4, 2010

Over the past few days, I've noticed that administrative tasks sometimes fail to start. I'm asked to enter the administrative password, "Granting rights" appears in the bottom panel for a few seconds, but then disappears. I'm using Debian Lenny. This is only an intermittent problem, and if a task does fail to start, it will start on the next attempt. Tasks which have failed to start are:

*Launching Synaptic form the System menu.
*Launching a root terminal from the Applications menu.
*Launching Nautilus with root privileges from a terminal using gksu.

After coming across the following post, I thought maybe it was an issue with kernel 2.6.32-bpo.5-686, because I'd recently upgraded to that kernel too, but I'm advised that that isn't so.It was suggested that something else from backports might be causing the problem.

Fedora :: Firefox Hangs Too Often With Other Tasks In The Background?

Apr 14, 2010

Ever since I preupgraded to Fedora 12 Firefox has been behaving annoyingly under certain circumstances. I guess the issue is not specific to Firefox, but just that it is the most obvious example. What happens is that whenever there is another program/process in the background using CPU heavily (burning a DVD, for instance) or doing heavy disk I/O (say, Filelight scanning the root folder) Firefox hangs for a few seconds about twice every minute. If I open System Activity during such hangs the Firefox process will report "disk sleep", as if it was paused by some process management mechanism which is prioritizing the background task. Since I never observed such behaviour under similar circumstances under F11, F10 or F8 I wonder if there could be any OS setting which was changed and triggered this change of behavior. I should mention the computer has a dual-core processor.

Ubuntu :: Installed A Version With No Desktop, Best Way To Do These Tasks?

Mar 6, 2010

Ok so i have a IOn based PC that i use for only xbmc. I previously had a full ubuntu 9.11 install.

I had to reformat the drive but i could not get audio working. I gave the ION Optimized live CD a go and it worked with HDMI audio running perfectly. The thing is when i close xbmc i don't have a desktop, it just goes to command line.

I need to install lirc, copy some keymap files into my xbmc folder and then setup wireless. What would be the best way? Can it all be done through command line? Can i install a desktop environment?

Ubuntu :: Execute Tasks List Before Shutdown

Aug 10, 2010

When I shut down my computer I want to show some pending tasks that I have to do before leaving the office... I did a local application to manage those tasks, so basically I just want to run a command, and shut down after I kill the app executed. I have already tried with these options:

* /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default --> this works only when I select LogOut option instead Shutdown.

* /etc/rc0.d/K01mycustomscript --> execute script after X is killed

* $HOME/.bash_logout --> This looks like does nothing.

* ./app-to-run && sudo shutdown -h now --> Don't like it for 2 reasons, prompts for sudo password, and can't use my laptop shutdown button.

How could I modify Shutdown dialog ? should I recompile Gnome ? Options? I am using Ubuntu 10.04

General :: Automating Administrative Tasks In Fedora 10

Jan 10, 2011

I am a student at DeVry University, newly introduced to Fedora and Linux in general, and have a project whereby, we have been asked to consider some administrative tasks that we could automate via a script.I was wondering if there were any thoughts or directives from the community on what admin tasks you guys find to be of inestimable use in automating via a Linux script.

I am new to the Linux commands but have done a wee bit of programming before in C++ and others.I have also done basic DOS batch files before.

General :: Perform Root Level Tasks While In GUI?

Oct 5, 2010

There must be a way to perform privileged tasks in the Gnome desktop (or actually Nautilus, I guess)...similar to using SUDO in a terminal window.

For example I want to change the rights to a file, but Nautilus tells me I can't because I'm not the owner.
