Ubuntu :: 'set' Is Strange - Script Breaks Out?

May 29, 2010

notice at line 81 it goes rather strange - this goes on for another 9000 odd lines and looks like the set script is broken out and cat-ing to the screen - can't prove this as I've not been able to find the set script that is invoked...e.g.

uname@Sol:~$ set |head -200

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Strange WiFi Behavior Breaks Connection Repeatedly

May 30, 2011

I have recently upgraded to 11.4 and also had to renew an AP (HP ProCurve 10ag). This was several years old but replaced an identical model which had been working well until recently. I thought it would be appropriate to flash newer firmware as the device four releases behind the times. The access point serves partner's XP laptop and my openSUSE 11.4 laptop and after flashing the firmware both machines would make a connection and then break and remake, to the extent that the openSUSE machine became unusable. I thought it was an encryption problem and spent hours changing the AP and Client setups to no avail

After reading a thread here I checked out dmesg and this is what I found:-
[78.639247] wlan0: authenticate with 00:1d:b3:4b:ae:14 (try 1)
[78.640804] wlan0: authenticated
[78.642507] wlan0: associate with 00:1d:b3:4b:ae:14 (try 1)
[78.651195] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:1d:b3:4b:ae:14 (capab=0x411 status=0 aid=1)
[78.651200] wlan0: associated

[78.652283] cfg80211: Calling CRDA for country: DE
[78.674378] cfg80211: Regulatory domain changed to country: DE .....
This went on and on.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Breaks ATI X-1950 Pro

Jan 31, 2010

I just upgraded to the new 9.10. In 8.04 when I went into "Restricted Drivers" it showed something for my video card. Now there is nothing.

I'm trying to play a game (Counter-Strike) and it's just too laggy, probably because I don't have any drivers installed for the video card.

It's an ATI Radeon X-1950 Pro. What can I do?

Ubuntu :: MPD + Install - Breaks PulseAudio ?

Jun 26, 2010

After i tried a lot of mpd.conf tricks, I followed the tips on [url], namely, adding the mpd user to groups pulse and pulse-access. Now, which makes me really happy, MPD can have audio output. Downside: no other program can make sound, I can't make my beats again with lmms etc. The volume icon in the top right is always on mute, when i click preferences, the hardware tab didn't even show a device. Now it does, but nothing comes out except mpd out - and pressing the volume keys will display a notification but the main icon in the bar stays on "---" mute. Can i make mpd just an application on the pulseaudio outputs list, so that it can play nicely with the other guys?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Breaks All Other Sound?

Dec 13, 2010

I've been stuck in the windows side of my dual boot for about a month, I came back over to the ubuntu side and updated/upgraded and ran into this issue: When I log in everything sound related works fine. I can play audio and record audio off of the monitor using audacity. As soon as I start firefox though, all audio breaks. I can't play audio in any other program, recording in audacity fails, etc. Closing Firefox doesn't help, rebooting seems to be the only thing that works. I've already tried purging and reinstalling flash, but that doesn't seem to have had any effect. When starting audacity it throws this error:

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653

I'm on Lucid if that is of any relevance. It seems to me that firefox is monopolizing the audio device both while running and after it closes. What is odd is that I've never had this problem before, and all I did was update. I often run audio in firefox and record it with audacity.

p.s. I use pavucontrol to set up recording, and firefox no longer shows up as a playback application when playing audio.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mdadm Breaks 8.04.4 LTS

Mar 30, 2011

I've got a strange problem. I have the following system:


After doing this install everything works fine as expected. I can reboot, shutdown and bootup as I much as I want to and the system will work. Now, I proceed to do the following (as root obviously - sudo bash)


When I try to restart the system now, I get to the grub boot loader and then it just breaks with the following message I've identified 'mdadm' as being the culprit here. Any idea why this would happen? Just a subnote. The reason I'm installing mdadm is to create a soft-raid as follows with the remaining space on each drive:

Ubuntu :: Text In Shell Breaks Up?

Jun 7, 2011

I work a lot with Unix bash shell environment. Whenever I go down the directory tree to several subdirectories, i.e., /home/a/b/c/d/ and so on and type in a long command, what happens is that command text wraps around onto the new line but when trying to edit command I can only go back to the beginning of the new line. So, for, instance, say I go to directory and type something like:

/home/a/b/c/d/find . -type f -exec sed -i <- end of line
's/blah/blah/g' {} ; <- new line

Here, the problem is I can't go back to the real beginning of my command that starts with "find", I can only scroll to the beginning of the new line with the part "'s/blah/blah/g' {} ;"

So I effectively loose control over what I typed and can't edit it when the command wraps to a new line. Does anyone else experience this problem?

I also have this problem on our Debian servers so I always have to make sure I type the right command the first time because I can't move back and forth to edit it when it wraps to a new line.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Update Breaks Installation?

Mar 5, 2010

It seems that updating the Kernel breaks my installation. I've tried it twice, and both times it disabled my gui desktop. I'm posting this with links2 in my terminal. The terminal works perfectly.

This is really annoying, as I can't even use my computer. What do you think is the problem?

Ubuntu :: Empathy Jabber Breaks After Disconnecting

Apr 30, 2010

I was excited to use empathy in 10.04; however, both in the Beta and the Full Release I experience the following. (Note: I'm using 64 bit.)Setup 'Wizard' adds GTalk and Facebook Chat just fine.Manually add a IRC account (can't do that from wizard).Manually add a SIP account.Enjoy that it's working, and think that the full release fixed the bug.Disconnect

Then the next day.Set status as available.Get an ambiguous 'network-error' for GTalk and Facebook.Disable all accounts.Restart empathy, enable GTalk, get same error.Delete all accounts, restart system, go through account 'wizard', add GTalk, same error.Upgrade to dev version of Empathy, notice it's no longer in the nice messaging applet, but GTalk connects.Disconnect/Reconnect - same error.

Anyone else having this problem? Seems something is breaking with Jabber on Empathy. But I can't find any related information. I'll post logs when I boot into the 10.04 installation (which I was hoping to switch to, but not so sure right now.)

Ubuntu :: Booting Windows 7 Breaks GRUB?

Jul 4, 2010

Every time I use GRUB to boot into Win7, I can't reboot back into GRUB or Windows. I think Windows is forcing itself into the MBR then proceeding to corrupt it. I believe I can just boot into a Live session use "sudo grub-install /dev/sda", but that seems like a lot of work just to reboot.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Update Breaks PHP

Oct 20, 2010

I updated my server (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) today and had about 23 updates in Webmin. After the update suddenly apache doesn't render php pages anymore, instead letting you download the source code for the scripts. I checked the logs and found this:

Code: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I tried reinstalling php5 but I can't get it to work. I also hope that this was a glitch and that updates that break stuff like this don't get through QA.

Ubuntu :: Autocomplete Breaks Ability To Type?

Nov 4, 2010

When I type into a box that auto-completes, the window stops letting me type as soon as a suggestion comes up. I have to tab out of the window and come back to it.

This is mildly annoying for browsing on the internet and almost debilitating trying to use programs like Eclipse.

This occurred for me on 10.04, so I upgraded yesterday to 10.10 and the problem still occurs (and more problems!).

Ubuntu :: SSHFS Over VPN Breaks When Connection Lost?

Dec 2, 2010

I am mounting a remote directory using sshfs, over VPN. If the VPN connection is lost, the directory obviously can't be read. But, when I try to "ls" in its parent directory, the command just stalls. No error messages, and ctrl-d, ctrl-c, ctrl-z don't do anything. The command I ran to mount the directory was:
sshfs -o workaround=rename bt@example.com:/dir1 /dir1

Ubuntu Installation :: Breaks Windows 7 After Every Boot?

Dec 6, 2010

I currently have a Windows 7/Ubuntu/Mac OS triple boot. However, every time I boot into Ubuntu 10.10, then boot into Windows, it fails to boot until a chkdsk is run. I see no particular reason this should happen, is there a way to either patch this, or to prevent Ubuntu from accessing the NTFS partition? I think this is where the problem is focused.

I have recently installed ubuntu desktop i386 10.10 on my laptop (Saony vaio VPCF137HG) as a dual boot. When it first started it worked perfectly, but when I installed the nvidia driver (For a nvidia Geforce 425M GPU) it came to the purple screen (Pic of screen) and no further. It doesn't respond to any commands and would not go any further, even after 40 mins!

Ubuntu :: How To Apply Breaks In Text Files

Mar 31, 2011

I do not know what happened. But when I move the text files back and forth between Windows and Linux, the enters/paragraphs gets messed up and square characters appears. And I think it got worse when I deleted those squares. So now it is one very long line. How do I get the long line to break every 50 characters but not having the last word get cut off mid-word? I am thinking "cat textfile > something" but I do not know what that something is.

Ubuntu :: Enabling Xinerama Breaks Unity - 11.04

Apr 27, 2011

I am trying the daily build of Ubuntu 11.04. When I try to enable Xinerama, so that I can move windows between my two displays, then I log out, and back in, it simply breaks Unity.

I was getting the sidebar, almost on the right side, and the screen was all broken, then the behaviour changed to simply not displaying anithing, Unity not loading whatsoever.

I turned off Xinerama (by editing my xorg.conf) and diabled it, and Unity works perfect.

Here's a copy of my xorg.conf

Ubuntu Servers :: FTP Breaks With Outbound Connection

Jul 24, 2011

I'm sending files to a remote server by way of FTP via a PHP script. With the firewall turned on these files are getting to the remote server with 0kb and the remote server is timing out before all the files are received. When the firewall is turned off the all files are received in tact. There are no outbound rules set in the iptables, looking for ideas on what to check next.

Ubuntu :: Strange Black Bar On Desktop?

Sep 8, 2010

I noticed yesterday, after what must have been the most recent updates, that my display now has a dark striped bar running down the right hand side of the display. It runs between the indicator applet and the deleted items bin on my standard Gnome desktop. I know it's not my monitor since I can see both of those items but maximised applications will not fill this area, even though the cursor is visible there.I've tried changing a number of display options but to no avail.

Ubuntu :: Maverick First Look: Strange Colors?

Oct 10, 2010

About an hour ago I completed the Network upgrade to Maverick from Lucid. Immediately I see some changes over Lucid: my computer can now hibernate successfully, a feature that worked in Hardy, but was broken in Karmic and Lucid. But a small annoyance is the strange colors. There is an abundance of purple colors in icons, in links, in indicators. I have attached a small snapshot of my browser. The circled purple area should be blue in normal contions.
