Red Hat :: Command Line Prompt But Not The Correct Bash Prompt?

Feb 2, 2011

I'm running Red Hat Linux 5.4 on HP DL580 server with 16 processors and 64 GB of RAM. I'm connecting to the server remotely through SSH. after entering the password, it takes time to return the command line, if I click ctrl+c during this time, I'll have the command line prompt but not the correct bash prompt (I have to run bash to pass to my correct prompt).I tried to install Apache on the server, ./configure took 4 hours to finish instead of 1 or two minutes, Oracle installation same behavior. Server Disks are mirrored using RAID controller.

General :: Data Recovery On HDD - Command Line Prompt

Feb 11, 2010

I installed Fedora 10 on a pc I built from a barebones package, I have had no problems over the past couple months until recently. When I start up the pc the OS lags on a black screen with the cursor blinking. I have searched forums but I guess since I am a newbie I am still lost in the translations. What I am trying to do is save my files that are on the pc to a DVD-RW or my external hard drive before I have to reinstall the software again.

My questions are as follows:
How can I locate the files on the hard drive? When I have the bootable cd-rom inserted I am unable to locate the HDD. How can I transfer my files using the command line prompt? Finally, is it possible just to upgrade to the latest Fedora without losing my files and going through the data recovery process head ache? Or can I reinstall the OS and not lose my files?

General :: Lost Command Line Prompt After Starting Totem?

Feb 11, 2010

At the Command Line Prompt I am able to start some Applications (such as openoffice.org or evolution) and the command line prompt re-appears after program is launched and I can continue working in that Terminal. However, other Applications, such as Totem or Blackboard will launch from the Terminal but the Prompt does not re-appear. Where Totem is concerned I get a message stating "sha module is deprecated use hashlib module instead". Where Blackboard is concerned the command line does not reappear. I have to use Ctrl + C to get the command line back but this closes the application as well! Or, I have to open a new Terminal. why some applications will start from the command line and others do not? How do you get the prompt back (other than q or Ctrl + c) thanks to all and kindest regards ( I am using Ubuntu 9.04)

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 And Command Line Scripts - Error - Android: Command Not Found

Mar 26, 2011

I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...

I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):

* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).

** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,

My system:

Intel i7
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
eclipse 3.6.2

Ubuntu :: Is Command Line Invocation Of Gnome-terminal To Run More Than One Command

Feb 17, 2010

how to pass something more than a one-command startup for gnome-terminal. I will give an example of what I'm trying to do here:


#! /bin/bash
#TODO write this for gnome and xterm


This same error occurs if the gnome-terminal line is changed to


gnome-terminal -e mcTerm

Is there any way to pass more than one command on to gnome-terminal? I have tried various single and double quoting senarios and in a final attempt, I abstracted to an exported function all to no avail. Perhaps even though gnome-term is better at many things than xterm, xterm trumps it in this instance.

Ubuntu :: When Login Via Ssh To A Server Only A $ At The Command Prompt

I'm getting some weird behavior when I log in via ssh to a ubuntu server. When I log in, there is only a $ at the command prompt, no user name. The arrows don't work, they just put the arrow characters in the prompt. Everything else seems to be ok. Also, when I say logged in as User, I meant a new user I just created.

Ubuntu Installation :: Only Get Command Prompt After Upgrade?

Oct 17, 2010

After upgrade to 10.10, I only get the command prompt. Fortunately, all my XP Pro machines are running, and I am using one of them to access this Forum. I suspect that nVidia graphics driver did not load correctly. running startx at the command line gives numerous lines of text apparently understandable xorg gurus. It looks like nvidia_drv.so did not load and module "nvidia" did not load [loader failed, 7] and next line says no drivers loaded.

Ubuntu Servers :: Not Giving Command Prompt

Feb 28, 2011

I have a pretty fresh install on Ubuntu 10.10 Server, with the LAMP bundle installed. Anyway, I just restarted the computer after changing the /etc/network/interfaces script to connect via dhcp. Now when I boot into the server, there is no command prompt and seems to hang there forever, with one blinking cursor in the top left hand corner of the screen. It will not respond to any input besides ctrl-alt-delete. I was able to press control-alt-delete and the computer automatically restarted itself, but it returns to the same state after each reboot. I booted from the grub menu into recovery mode and made sure the /etc/network/interfaces script was correct, and it is. Also I don't think an error in this file should cause the computer to not boot into the command prompt.

Ubuntu :: Different Results When Running In Command Prompt And Via Script?

May 26, 2010

i wonder if it is usual that the results of running commands via the command line is different from running them in a script file. my problem is that, i've to run 'modprobe -r e100' and 'modprobe e100' before suspend my machine via pmi in order to resume it properly. i wrote a script containg EXACTLY the same commands as i typed in the terminal/console but the result was not the same. the machine cannot be resumed as expected if i run the script file.
