Ubuntu :: Errors "[1150.843478] End_request: I/O Error, Dev Sro, Sector 529005" When Installing 10.10

May 26, 2011

After I installed 10.10 there was a huge amount of Error messages come up before the system automatically restarted. Most were like this : Error [1150.843478] end_request: I/O error, dev sro, sector 529005 THere were at least 2-3 pages of them with various numbers. Is my disk buggered or my system too small? I have a Compaq Evo D510 sff.

Fedora Installation :: Error, Saying I Had Bad Sector(s) The Error Told Me To Run Chkdsk /f /r In Windows, Then I Could Run Ntfsresize With -b, (in Linux)

Feb 22, 2009

I have the DVD installer of Fedora 10, i want to dual boot with windows vista. well i get up to the partitioning part of installation (in anconda) and it asks me how i want to partition it... i wanted to re size my partition and create the default format, so i keyd in 70GB and Okay. then it came up with an error, saying I had bad sector(s) The error told me to run chkdsk /f /r in windows, then i could run ntfsresize with -b, (in Linux) well i did all those steps, and shrunk /dev/sda1 to 70gb (/dev/sda2 is my recovery partition) i have a 140 gb hard drive, but can't find the unallocated space anywhere!

when i booted windows, it ran a chksdk, like it should, and in my computer it said that it had been shrunk (because the pie graph showed a capacity of around 70GB) When i go into windows disk management it says no unallocated space, just one big partition (and a 8gb recovery partition) this is the same with GParted on puppy linux, GParted on fedora 10 (live cd) says there is no drives I can mount or unmount and same error on partition logic... in EASUS partition manager i get told that there is no unallocated space, in the fedora installer there is only /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. Does anybody know.. how to install fedora on this partition, or get rid of the partition and repartition it another way. when i click on the option to remove all linux partitions and create default format, it errors and says it cannot make another primary partition, then says there is no room for /boot. and i can not proceed.

CentOS 5 :: Getting "Unknown Error" When Running System-config-xxxx Programs?

Aug 6, 2010

I am a long time Unix system admin and this one has got me stumped.When I try to run the system-config-network (or any of the system-config-xxx programs) from the links on the GNOME interface, I get a message pop-up that says, "Unknown error" and no additional information. I have also opened a terminal and run it from the command line (/usr/bin/system-network-config) and I get the same "Unknown error" pop-up. I was not the one who originally configured this server, so I am not sure of the history or how it might have been broken. I can't seem to find any debugging information or even any command line parameters that might give me a clue what the complaint is. There is no error number or any other helpful hint as to the cause of the problem.

I have been manually editing the config files so the server is up and running but it is tedious to manage the server without the GUI.Has anyone seen this before? I assume it is a configuration issue, but I am not sure where to look.uname -aLinux xxxxserver 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 #1 SMP Wed Mar 17 11:30:06 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux/etc/redhat-releaseCentOS release 5.4 (Final)

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Loading VM / Error Reading Sector

Sep 1, 2011

I created a boot disc (USB drive) with Ubuntu 11.04 and tried to install it on my Gateway GT5012 desktop running Windows XP. It gets to the part where I can "Run Ubuntu from this USB," and I select it. The screen shows "loading vm/linuz..." or something like that, and then the entire screen turns into dots.

One time, when trying to boot from the drive, it brought up
"CHS: Error 0201 reading sector 1418005 (88/68/3)
EDD: Error 4200 reading sector 1418006"

I ran this same USB drive on another computer (also running XP), and it worked just fine, so I really have no idea what's going on. If it matters, the computer it worked on had Internet access, this one didn't. It says "Loading /casper/vmlinuz..." and then goes to the screen of flashing dots.

Ubuntu Installation :: GParted Hangs Because Of Sector Size Error

Mar 22, 2010

Gparted won't let me install Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. Every time it hangs at 47% and throws a sector size error, something like: doesn't support sector size 2048 and the code is HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. My 1TB hard drive exists out of the following partitions:

100MB Windows 7 Reserved
900GB+ Windows 7
1MB unallocated space

Is there a workaround for this? I've tried installing Linux Mint and Ubuntu but both gave me the same error.

Ubuntu :: Disk Formatted In Error - Boot Sector Repair

Nov 20, 2010

I was using the disk utility on Ubuntu 10.04 and wanted to make by 500GB external NTFS formatted USB drive into 1 x 50GB FAT32 and 1 x 450GB NTFS. I clicked the option that said format or create a partition and it basically wiped the whole thing in a split second leaving me with 500GB of seemingly empty space. Obviously the files are still there but I cannot boot the drive to view anything. I have downloaded testdisk, but don't know how to use it, but I am sure there is a relatively simple solution here. I am currently repairing the boot sector of the drive as Test Disk showed the drive as "no type" i.e. not FAT/NTFS/ext4 etc., but shows the correct amount of used space though, but I cannot view anything err go, I cannot use the undelete command as yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: Apt-get Error "Eackage Xxxx Has No Installation Candidate"

Aug 19, 2011

Im a first time user of Ubuntu, I have 11.04 64bit installed. I used to use Fedora before. Seems like all of a sudden APT-GET stopped working. Whatever I try to install, it either tells me dependencies unmet presumably because the libraries are uninstalable (as it it says), and then when I try to install these packages I always get the error "Eackage xxxx has no installation candidate". This is for anything I try. I use Main server in Software Source, but have tried different servers too. May I point out that I haven't touched it, one day it was working the next it was not. Very Windows-like

Hardware :: SMARTD Reported Disk Sector Read Error

Oct 27, 2010

2 months ago, I built a dedicated backup server using 4 2TB SATA drives for software RAID5 (6TB total). A few days ago, smartd sent out mail saying it found an unreadable sector on one of the drives. I ran selftest using smartctl and the error persisted. So far, neither software RAID nor ext4fs running on top of the RAID volume have reported errors.

MOST OPTIMISTIC: It is normal to have a few bad sectors among billions. Software RAID takes care of alternatives. Keep using the system until RAID spits a more serious warning in the future.

MOST PESSIMISTIC: It is a really bad sign to lead a disaster. No good disk drive should have bad sectors especially when it is only 2 months old. The error is simply not detected by software RAID and ext4. Replace the drive immediately and return the bad drive to the supplier.

Hardware :: Error Mounting - Failed To Read Last Sector (3907027119): Invalid Argument

Sep 7, 2010

I'm trying to mount my new Western Digital Elements 2tb hard drive, but every time I try to plug it into the computer I get this error message:


Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (3907027119): Invalid argument

HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),


But when I tried opening the hard drive from nautilus I still got the same error message as above (no other volumes was connected at the time). I've also tried opening and watching it in GParted, and I can see it there as a volume that's not allocated. When I tried to allocate the hard it I got the message that it had no partition table. And that I cold make one. I tried and Ubuntu suggested to make a MS-DOS partition table for it. But there I got a little scared as I've not done this before. The external hard drive is brand new and was brought today. And I don't have the possibility to test it with Windows or Mac as I'm using Linux only on my machines.

Ubuntu Installation :: Bootloader To Usb Hard Drive - Error "no Boot Sector On Usb Device"

Apr 8, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu to an external usb hard drive (WD Elements SE). I am also choosing to install the grub bootloader to this disk (/dev/sdb) because I do not want anything modified on the internal drive. The installation appears to go okay, but when I try to boot to the usb drive, I get the error, "no boot sector on usb device" and it immediately falls back to my interal drive. I have tried this installation with both 10.10 (amd64) and 11.04 (amd64). How can I fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dev/disk/by-uuid/xxxx Does Not Exist?

Jan 23, 2010

Fresh install of 9.10. Update all. The update froze at the very end: configuring grub-pc. I let it run like that all night before settling for a reboot while the update manager was still running. (The update also raised the kernel version.) After reboot, I tried the newer kernel [2.6.31-17-generic] at the grub menu and got this error:


udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured.
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured.
svgalib: Cannot open /dev/mem.[code].....

And, cat /proc/modules gives me a long list of modules (too much to retype for now).So my hard drive is there. maybe some errors on the / home partition [sda6] and I can get to the root directory.

FYI: MS-win XP still boots fine from grub.

Server :: Vsftpd - FTP Clients Work - Ftp://xxxx In Mozilla Does Not

I have an FTP server which is linked to a user account in a chroot jail and I have disabled anonymous access (anonymous_enable=NO). I can FTP into this server from Windows command line FTP client and every other FTP client I have used with no problems.

However, I have been trying to access it via a web browser (firefox) using ftp://<server name>. This connects and prompts me for my login details, which I enter as I should. But then I get a 425 connection error.

In my /var/log/secure log, I see the entry: -

Fedora Hardware :: NVidia FX5200 Only Works With An Old Kernel Xxxx.i586?

Feb 1, 2010

I was helping my cousin move to the GNU Linux world and I was faced with the following problem: He has a MSI nVidia GeForce FX5200 PCIe (128MB vRam) Graphics card. I followed a couple of instructions here in getting that card to work, but the drivers that I was able to load up to his 23 bit system refused to load after system boot up (white flashing letters would come up, X server refusing to load). I was only able to load the system with full 3D hardware accelerated support when I loaded the old xxxxx.i586 based kernel from the GRUB list, while the current kernel that was being used was xxxx.i686 based one.

Currently there was two kernels in the list, so I manually edited the GRUB file to change the boot identifier number from 1 (xxxx.i686) to 0 (xxxx.i586) so every time that the computer would be powered on, it would load that kernel up automatically without having to reselect it manually each time.

Yesterday, my cousin picked up his computer, he was fine and happy with his fedora core (version 11, because Version 12 had major problems with this graphics card, its on the "test" list still, and the developers of fedora, or the developers of that other 3rd party software source seems to be in the middle of testing it for FC12 compatibility)

He told me today that after he ran the "updates" for fedora and installed them, when he rebooted the system, he would see that same while characters in the top left section of the screen flashing and it would get stuck there, he told me that he was able to solve the problem by rebooting and selecting the xxxxxx.i586 kernel from the list. He also told me that he saw three kernels from the list.

For what I see here, this driver will only load with the i586 based kernel, and I also am seeing that each time that he updates his system he may have to go thru this again. My question is this: Will fedora 11 change his default kernel each time that he runs Fedora Updates? If so, what can I do to prevent that change from occurring.

Also, is there a limit on the kernels that appears on the GRUB list, if each updates brings a new kernel entry on the GRUB list, will the list get very large one day? or will Fedora remove one or more kernels, in other words, what is the maximum number of Kernels Fedora keeps on the GRUB list? and will there be a point that Fedora updates will delete that working i586 kernel leaving him with a non booting system? Or will that nvidia driver "magically" start working with some future update after the developers fix/improves what ever is keeping that nVidia driver from loading with the latest updates?

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Crashes - Grub Error

Mar 17, 2010

My desktop has been running 64 bit 9.10 since an upgrade from 9.04 for 6 months with no problems.

Recently however, my system crashed for the first time. All windows closed and the system hung, attempting to open anything did not work. I would click on an icon or type Alt +F2 and nothing happened . Although my cairo-dock at the bottom of the screen was still running perfectly (including animations Etc.) albeit without any programs working. Trying to click on system manager gave me the message.

"Failed to execute child process 'gnome-system-manager' Input/Output Error"

Trying to reboot several times and selecting previous kernels brought me to a prompt where I was able to check all my important documents were still there, but do nothing else. Recovery mode also did not work.

Eventually I left the computer overnight and started it and Ubuntu loaded normally, then after around 15 minutes the system hung again with identical systems to the first time. Although this time Firefox greyed out first.

This has happened every time I try to boot the computer since and last time it gave me a screen saying Grub Read Error which after 3 reboots has finally allowed me to access my computer (from where I am typing with haste!).

Using lm-sensors I am sure there is not an over heating problem. Am I right in thinking this may be a problem with my hard drive? And if so what is my best course of action? Apologies for the length of this post and thanks for reading.

Ubuntu :: Xorg Crashes With Fatal Error / Fix It?

Nov 28, 2010

Xorg seems to crash randomly and with no real reason. Once it does, I can't restart it. If I try to restart it with GDM, nothing will happen. However once it crashes, Ubuntu's low graphics mode window pops up. Telling it to reconfigure the xorg config seems to do nothing for my problem. I will still crash after words.

Right now I'm running in an earlier kernel, hoping this will keep it from crasgubg

Here is my xorg log. code...
