Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Install Package - Permissions Error While Using Sudo

Mar 17, 2010

tl;dr - sudo make -> operation not permitted, sudo chown -R 777
* -> operation not permitted on some of the files

I am trying to install a library. Sudo make is getting permission denied on file 1, while using regular make I am getting permission denied on file 2. I have noticed some of the directories in the library are under nobody:nogroup. I tried chown and sudo chown, both didn't work. Sudo chown got permission errors, while chown didn't change ALL the files. (operation not permitted once again) Tried sudo su, and working from there, that also did not work. (permission once again). Using lsattr returned "lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on".

sudo chmod -R 777 *

Ubuntu Installation :: Hangs Infinitely At "Preparing To Install Netbook"?

Oct 16, 2010

I'm using a EeePC 1000H and wanted to upgrade 8.10 to 10.10.[URL].. I chose to do a new install.

The following partitions are present:

- WindowsXP, 2 NTFS partitions
- ext3 where 8.10 sits. It is of EasyPeasy-flavour (no other version available at that time)
- hidden partition where WinPE resides

I downloaded the ISO and put it on a USB stick (4GB). Booting works fine. Using it as a live-system works fine as well. Problem came when I want to install it. The process hangs at "Preparing to install Ubuntu-Netbook" after clicking "forward". Nothing happens afterwards. In the menubar a crash-report detected-notification appears, saying: Quote:

The problem cannot be reported: The program crashed on an assertion failure, but the message could not be retrieved. Apport does not support reporting these crashes Unfortunately no other information available.[URL].. but not the same hardware. The thread there seens bot to be of much use anyway, therefore this new post.

Software :: Preparing System To Install Qouta?

Mar 24, 2010

I wanted to configure my server for users that can have access to php/mysql database but with the limited harddrive space i have
i cant do unlimited space per user. So i decided to install qouta, i got this guide from : [URL] But in this guide that tells me to configure my system partitions to use qouta its says i should edit fstabs. Quota support is enabled as the filesystems are mounted, and so it must be specified in the options section of your /etc/fstab file. Specifying the quota options is as simple as adding usrquota for per-user quota, or grpquota for per-group quotes in the options column. For example this first entry without quotas:

/dev/hda1 /home ext2 defaults 1 1

Would become the following with per-user quotas enabled:

/dev/hda1 /home ext2 defaults,usrquota 1 1

Once this has been added you can remount the partition by rebooting, and install the software. This will setup the partitions to be mounted with quota support enabled, however you haven't enabled them for the running system.

My current fstab:


# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0


As far as my knowledge goes my /home/ directory entry is located on /dev/hda2/ where the / parition is mounted.

1. What do i put in my fstab. Do i edit it use quota on /dev/hda2 (Where my root partaition is mounted). ?

2. How do i get to know on what partition (/dev//dev/hda2?, /dev/hda2?.) my home directories of the users are?

3. Can i reload fstab without having to reboot my machine? (I like keeping my uptime as high as possible )

4. Do i need to know any more stuff that u guys can give me involving risks of badly configuration or handling this matter?

Ubuntu Installation :: Preparing A Hard Drive For Installation?

May 21, 2010

Ive an IBM Thinkpad T41 that im hoping to isntall Ubuntu on. I installed it with dual boot as windows xp was already on it and all went fine. Now Ive downloaded the lastest Ubuntu release and burnt it to disk. I have several spare hard drives that will slot internally into my Thinkpad Most if not all are formated to NTFS My question is, and believe me i have search for days about this. From what I have searched, -I dont need to format this drive to ext3 to install ubuntu? -However any drives Ive tried all NTFS and tried booting from the CD just cause my installation to hang, just boots to a black screen -The same CD will allow me to install a dual boot so I know its not the Disk. Do i need to format my drive first? I dont want a dual boot system I just want a fresh install

Ubuntu Installation :: Preparing To Dual Boot Windows 7 + 10.10?

Nov 30, 2010

In a few days I'll be getting Windows 7 and a new hard drive, hoping to dual boot W7 and 10.10. I'm really just looking for confirmation before I go ahead and install anything and mess things up. I have three hard drives. Windows will go on a 1TB HD, Ubuntu will take up part of a separate 500gb drive, and the other 500GB is NTFS storage. Installing both OS from scratch, so I'll format those disks with gparted before installing Windows and then Ubuntu. How should I format the Windows disk? A single primary NTFS partition?

And for Ubuntu, does this look right?:

15gb primary ext4 for root
XXGB ext4 for /home
4gb swap (to match RAM)

Am I missing anything?

Installation :: Preparing / Partitioning A Server For Use As Dev Box?

Apr 6, 2010

I have a pc that has 500GB of hard disk space, I want to install centos and use it has a dev box for java/web applications. Keeping in mind the end us of the box, what partition structure makes the most sense?

I was thinking:

/ -- 150 GB*
/var -- 10 GB
/data -- 340 GB**

*Since there will be a bunch of apps i.e. apache, mysql, vsftpd, postfix, trac, samba, alfresco, and icescrum or agilefant

**For all other files i.e. java/war/jar files, svn directory, backups, samba share

Debian Installation :: Can't Transfer Files From CD - USB Live Install Error

Jan 18, 2015

I am trying to install Debian over Kali since in order to use steam, newest version of wine and a few other things causes a change reaction that would require about two-thirds of my main os re-written with non kali files which makes me a little uneasy.

I have downloaded the debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso from torrent from the link from debian download listings at debian.org. and I put it on a 8gb flash drive formated with gparted to a bootable fat32 partition and is listed as being /dev/sdc I installed the iso to the drive uss dd using the following code

Code: Select allsudo dd if=debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M; sync

now it boots to the flash drive just fine with only the gnome3 drivers loaded by the live os isn't fully functional with my system. Ie. when I log into any of the live modes it gives me a message that it was switched to gnome3 [fallback] I am using the current version of gnome3 desktop manager installed from source on kali with out any trouble.

Also when I click the graphical installer or the installer modes from the grub i get a background image with some sort of artifiacts in the top inchish of the screen then everything but the mouse freezes. But when I go into one of the live modes and click the installer in their it opens just fine but when it starts transferring files it says that it couldn't transfer files from the cd after all the language and localization screens at the beginning.

I did find a misc page on the internet involving a cruchbang with the same problem [URL] I went to the folder in the usb drive in question and it looks like since that was originally post something has changed or it could have been a crunchbang format.

So basically I am asking did I do a step wrong should I try a different way of instillation, or do I have a corrupted image? also I am unable to use disk media due to the type of drives and disks I have access to.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mdadm Using "sudo Apt-get Install Mdadm" - Error "Generating Array Device Nodes"

Jan 11, 2010

I am planning on setting up a 4x1TB RAID5 with mdadm under Ubuntu 9.10. I tried installing mdadm using "sudo apt-get install mdadm", all worked fine except for the following error: Code: Generating array device nodes... /var/lib/dpkg/info/mdadm.postinst: 170: /dev/MAKEDEV: not found failed. The end result is the /dev/md0 device has not been created, as can be seen here:

Code: windsok@beer:~$ mdadm --detail /dev/md0 mdadm: cannot open /dev/md0: No such file or directory After googling, I found the following bug which describes the issue: [URL] However it was reported way back in April 2009, and it does not look like it will be fixed any time soon, so I was wondering if anyone knows a workaround for this bug, to get me up and running?

Fedora Installation :: F12 Installation Hangs @ "Preparing Transaction From Installation Source"

Apr 30, 2010

Trying to get Fedora 12 installed normally on a laptop, but it's hanging at the aforementioned point during installation. The mouse cursor is movable and the system appears to be fully working. The progress bar isn't moving and there is nowhere to either shut down the PC or access the terminal?? I cannot check any progress or see any log of what the installation program is trying to do.

It's a P4 laptop with ~700mb of ram. This is a fresh install from the i386 DVD distro. Why is it so hard to get a running system in linux when Windows or Mac is ready to go in about an hour? I've spent a good 3 hours trying to find my way around this latest problem and I am SO close to giving up. What a waste of my time linux has been so far.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Error Booting Operating System" - Sudo Grub; Root (hd0.0)...) Doesn't Work

Mar 1, 2011

I installed 10.04 (clean install) on a 250G drive (partitioned to 107G for the system files). It was working fine, until I wanted to install Window$ for the use of Adobe stuff. I popped the Windows XP disc in, it loaded its files, then I tried to choose a partition for installation. There was an error saying that I can't do that, and needed to delete a partition blah blah. I thought it was too much trouble, so I quit and just wanted to use my 10.04. Booted, and it says "Error booting operating system" I WAS SHOCKED.

I tried to install grub (but don't need that right? I DO NOT want to dual boot now), but the usual method ( the sudo grub; root (hd0.0)...) doesn't work ,because something like "stage1" is missing. I tried many methods by still the same error. The reason I do not want a clean install is that I did many fixes on my 10.04 so that it would work with my EeePC 1001pxd, and I do not want to go through that again. I will be checking my email frequently on other computers if I have a chance.
