Ubuntu Installation :: Warning: Initialization From Incompatible Pointer Type

May 21, 2011

i have a minimal ubuntu desktop and i'm trying to install the latest nvidia driver (downloaded from their website) and i got the following error:


/tmp/selfgz2431/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53/kernel/nv.c: At top level:
/tmp/selfgz2431/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53/kernel/nv.c:426:5: error: unknown field �ioctl� specified in initializer
/tmp/selfgz2431/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53/kernel/nv.c:426:5: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type


i had to apt-get even gcc and make, so i'm probably missing some required package...

Software :: Compile Error: 'H5G_obj_t' Does Not Name A Type - Is Gcc 4.3 Incompatible With Gcc 3

Mar 1, 2009

m trying to compile a package hdf-1.6.8 for openSUSE 11.0. But i think there is a problem when gcc 4.3 is used. The make fails giving errors like:


In file included from H5IdComponent.cpp:21: H5IdComponent.h:86: error: 'H5G_obj_t' does not name a type The header file has such entries:


H5G_obj_t p_get_refobj_type(void *ref, H5R_type_t ref_type) const;

Is this a cause for conflicts between gcc 3 and gcc 4. If so how do i rectify the same? I have compat-ltdc++ installed. Similar errors are sure to follow during the compilation process.

OpenSUSE :: Warning: Cannot Convert String To Type FontStruct

I used xbindkeys and xvkbd to map my extra mouse buttons to page up and page down. With kde 4.4 it worked, but since I upgraded to kde 4.5 beta, I get the following error when xbindkeys starts:


*** Warning ***verify that there is not another program running which captures one of the keys captured by xbindkeys. It seems that there is a conflict, and xbindkeys can't grab all the keys defined in its configuration file. And for button press I get

Ubuntu Installation :: Java JRE 6.0 And Firefox 3.6 Apparently Incompatible?

Aug 28, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 5 days ago....looked great....seemed to offer everything I want. Then I clicked on the firefox icon and it brought up Google ...Great!....Then I said ..this is easy..I'll have a look at my share-trading dynamic platform. Searched for Commsec and clicked 'launch Webiress'...and then it hiccupped! I got a message saying I needed Java "Now downloading".....Okay I've had this happen in windows...no problemo.. Then I tried to follow the instructions contained on the download page from Java....thats what started my five days (30 hours now and counting) of misery.

Finally on one of the hundreds of Ubuntu pages I've read I found that there is a bug in java....that prevents it from working with the Firefox that Ubuntu provides. So I cleverly removed firefox ....and went to Mozilla and downloaded a new version 3.6 of Firefox.....followed the instructions at Sourceforge.net (and other places I can't remember). Now I have Firefox in a folder in 'Documents' with libjavaplugin_oji.so linked to ///java/jre.6.0_21/plugin/i386/ns7... But when I try to fire up Webiress I still get the messsage "Java not installed ...now downloading".

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Used On 10.10 Incompatible With Toshiba L675d?

Feb 24, 2011

I am desperately in love with Linux and love writing Java programs on it and compiling them at the terminal. I love the terminal and practically everything about Linux. But I simply cannot boot into the newest kernel with my new laptop. Do you think the next Ubuntu release will address the current problem of my not being able to use the newest Linux kernel? This is a fundamental problem and cannot be worked around. I have to use an earlier version of the operating system that will eventually not be supported. What's funny is this: my 5+ year-old Toshiba Satellite laptop works wonderfully with Linux and can even connect to my mom's wireless network "out of the box."

I guess it's hard to keep up with all the different hardware configurations on the market, and I can understand that you can't expect every computer to work with Linux. I was just wondering if anyone else has had similar problems. i am not using any custom-build PC. I think the problem is just that my laptop is too new and Linux developers haven't had time to catch up with the hardware manufacturers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Toshiba Satellite L675D Incompatible With 2.6.35-22 Kernel?

Oct 24, 2010

I have two brand new (less than 60 days old) Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7016. Neither will boot the live CD of 10.10-64, but the CDs work in other computers and I have installed successfully half a dozen times off of them. I get the initial text across the top, there is a momentary splash of the Ubuntu logo with a little battery symbol, then the screen goes black with a little flashing prompt in the upper left. That is all it will do until I hard reboot it. I made the USB boot off the CD and tried that. It never gets beyond the initial text "syslinux 3.82 2009-06-09 EBIOS ..etc".

I re-installed 10.04, replacing 10.10 and everything works fine on both laptops. Several hours later (something really needs to be done about how long it takes to upgrade) when the new upgrade is complete, it will no longer boot. Of course the default GRUB menu choice is 2.6.35-22. I assume this is the kernel number. If I pick 2.6.32-25 it boots just fine and "about" says that I am running 10.10, so I am just baffled. I know how to set GRUB to boot of this option by default, but i would like to fix the problem, not put a band-aid on it.

In case someone else has this model, it uses an audio chipset I have not seen. Win 7 reports it as "Realtek High Def audio" AND "ATI HDMI Audio". Ubuntu lists two, one generic Internal Audio, the other RS880 audio device[Radeon HD 4200]. What makes it odd is that if you want to use the head phone jack to connect to an external sound system, you have to turn it on with software inside Windows. In Ubuntu, there is no corresponding software so when you plug something in, the internal speakers turn off, but nothing comes out of the headphone jack.

Ubuntu Installation :: Initialization Screen Appearing In Low Resolution

May 2, 2010

I did a dist-upgrade from Karmic to Lucid. Everything *seems* to be running OK, but there's one thing that's really nerve wrecking: When I boot my computer, the "Loading" screen - before the splash screen where everything is initialized shows up - appears on an absurdly low resolution (not sure exactly which). So the graphics are awful, the text is too big and so on.

Aside from that, before the Loading screen shows up - right after "GRUB is loading" - a lot of characters (like plus signs) fill two lines of the screen. I think this might also be because of the resolution. So bottom line is:
1) Is there a way to fix this?
2) Should I be concerned enough to go with a full fresh install?

Debian Installation :: Failed In Network Initialization

Jan 20, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian 5.03 from the netinstall on a usb flash disk. When it gets to the network initialization step, it fails and cannot get an IP from DHCP. Manual configuration does not work either. Out of desperation I installed windows to see if the network device was broken (this is a new motherboard), however it works fine without drivers even. Invoking lspci shows that it is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Etherent Controller (revision ff)

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Installation Fail At 90% (step Font Initialization)

Jul 28, 2010

I am installing from the scratch a 11.3 on a PC on which previously 11.1 did run flawlessly. (Athlon 3700 with 3GB ram and Asrock socket 939 mainboard. Graphics is Nvidia. The installation comes every time up to 90% when it arrives at "font initialization). No error message is displayed. The little "cursor wheel" is still turning but else, there is no activity.

DVD from an sha1 checked and MD5 doublechecked download was burned with lowest speed in K3b and verified by the same program post burn, with full success of every verification.
Tried to change DVD reader but does not change the result. Runs speedy up to that step.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Pointer After Upgrading To 10.04

Ubuntu Installation :: Can Not See The Mouse Pointer

I used UBUNTU 9.10 with no problem on 3 of my computers. I tried to use UBUNTU 11.04 and with one of my old laptops I face a problem with the mouse pointer. I can not see the mouse pointer. The mouse seems to work, but since I can not see the mouse pointer, its impossible to upgrade to UBUNTU 11.04 the same problem with UBUNTU 10,04 but no problem with UBUNTU 9.10.(My laptop is Fujitsu Siemens Amilo)

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Upgrade Gives Strange Mouse Pointer And Windows

Sep 10, 2010

I just upgraded my 9.10 on my laptop to 10.04. I seems to have gone well except for one annoying problem. when I boot up I get a large X for the mouse pointer instead of the normal arrow. When I start an application it will not go to full screen and there are no close/minimise/maximise options. Nor can I get to the top or bottom menu bars.

I can cure this on a temporary basis by right-clicking on the desktop and changing the visual effects from none to normal. The problem is that it does not stick. Each time I boot up I have to make this change.

Debian Installation :: Black Screen With Cross Pointer After Boot

Sep 19, 2015

Yesterday I installed Debian Jessie, I ran into a few problems at first, but in the end everything worked fine. It started the desktop environment (gnome). I installed a few programs(sudo, chromium, tor) and saw that everything was working correctly. I shutdown the system with the command "shutdown now". Then I booted into windows to make sure I hadn't broken anything there (which I did not), but when I tried going back to Debian, it booted to a black screen with a cross as a pointer. By pressing ALT CTRL <FKEY>, I can effectively get to other virtual terminals and login there, however trying to start the desktop environment with "startx" results in the same thing.

I installed Debian on an external hard drive and made four partitions, boot, /(root), /home, and swap.

I also tried to apt-get install --reinstall gnome and apt-get install --reinstall xorg, but the result is still the same

Not actually solved, but in the end just reinstalling got rid of the problem.
