Ubuntu :: Init: Failed To Spawn Ufw Pre-start Process: Unable To Execute: No Such File Or Directory
Jun 12, 2010
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Two days ago I updated using update manager. After that I can not boot Ubuntu. When I trying to boot system showing message " Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode Your screen, graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself" But I can not configure it.I can not boot to 'recovery mode' also

init: Failed to spawn ufw pre-start process: unable to execute: No such file or directory
I just updated from 9.04 to 9.10 (it's a long story, and I still can't go beyond 2.30).The update got rid of WICD, which is what I used and installed network-manager. Network-manager was not working at all, so I uninstalled it again and installed WICD. I could connect perfectly and had no problems.However, now the computer hangs during boot, saying that init can't start network-manager. I assume that something went wrong during the uninstalling process, since it wasn't updated.
This is the message: init: Failed to spawn network-manager main process: unable to execute: No such file or directory.
So how do I update it or manually change it so it stops requesting network-manager?
My machine is dual booted with Fedora 14 and RHEL 6. (I have only installed Red Hat because I am studying for RHCE). Just now I tried to install the Banshee player on my Red Hat OS. I ran various scripts inside the directory to see what really happens and after I ran the 'Makefile.in' file my terminal froze. It displayed '/bin/ not found'Then i restarted my computer and I got the following messages:
init: Failed to spawn readahead-collector main process: unable to execute: no such file or directory init: Failed to spawn rcS main process: unable to execute: No such file or directory init: Failed to spawn readahead main process: unable to execute: No such file or directory
I tried run level 1 and run level 3 but I get the same error messages.
I have an Acer 9410Z laptop that I believe is running the Maverick Meerkat version of Ubuntu Studio. I just did an upgrade using Synaptic. I get to GRUB, but When I try to boot 2.6.35-22 (or the recovery mode or a real time kernel I had installed )I get the error:
INIT: Failed to spawn ureadahead main process. No such file or directory I then get the Ubuntu Studio splash screen for 2 seconds but then instead of a normal boot I end up in the terminal.
I just installed Maya 2009 on Fedora 13.It seemed to run the RPM install fine, but when I go to Applications > Graphics > MayaI an error:Could not launch 'Autodesk Maya 2009 (64-bit) Failed to execute child process "/usr/autodesk/aya/bin/maya"(no such file or directory)I browsed to this location in the file browser and there definately is a file called maya in "bin"
There seems to be a common solution to get the webcam working with Skype - rather than launching with Skype you launch with LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype - so far so good. When I do this I get the error There was an error launching the application. Details: Failed to execute child process "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so" (No such file or directory). But I do have that directory and file on my system.
A ubuntu community doc talks about the terminal command sudo ld.so.preload-manager when I action this I get sudo ld.so.preload-manager /usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so [sudo] password for dad: sudo: ld.so.preload-manager: command not found
Failed to execute child process "gnome-help" (No such file or directory)I get this error when clicking on the Help button in, for example, the preferences dialog box like for the Time and Date panel.I cannot find anything in the Synaptic Pkg. Mgr. or Ubuntu Software Center that indicates "gnome-help".
I've installed MatLab in my Acer Aspire one netbook which runs karmic. Does anyone know what can cause this error message from appearing when i click on the icon? Could not launch 'MATLAB R2009a' Failed to execute child process "matlab" (No such file or directory)
I have recently upgraded 9.10 to 10.04 through the alternate CD. However, each time when I boot my system, post upgrade, I receive this error: INIT:failed to spawn spreadahead main process: unable to execute: No such file or directory After that it waits for a long time to show the desktop.
I have a minimal installation of Ubuntu, with lxde-core and some other apps I really use. Sometimes when I start the system, it hangs and nothing else happens. I hit Esc and then I see:Code:init: Failed to spawn rc-sysinit main porcess: Unable to open console: Input/Output error.I get stuck there, and the only thing I can do is to hold the power button, shutdown, boot again, and pray it will boot fine. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.
I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.
So I am trying to install Plastic 126.96.36.199 on a virtual server. I have the install package that i copied over to the machine using WinSCP i then gave the file executable permissions by using the command "chmod +x PlasticSCM-professional-188.8.131.52-linux-installer.bin" But when i try to install the package by using the command "sudo ./PlasticSCM-professional-184.108.40.206-linux-installer.bin" It gives me the following message.
sudo: unable to execute ./PlasticSCM-professional-220.127.116.11-linux-installer.bin - No such file or directory
why it isn't recognizing it? I know the file was there because i was able to change permissions and i can see it with -ls command.
Just figured this one out and thought I'd post it here in case it helped someone else. Skype just upgraded itself from 2.1 to 2.2. After upgrading it didn't start, and I got the message
"failed to execute child process skype-wrapper" First test out if skype runs from the command line, by running this in a terminal
Code: skype & If it runs, you're good to go: simply right click on the menu, locate your entry for skype and change the command to launch it from skype-wrapper to skype. The reason for this is that in the 2.1 version, skype needed a script called skype-wrapper to set some varibles before start up. Upgrading removes the script, but failed to update the menu entry.
After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have had some problems booting my Ubuntu. It all started when restarting after the upgrade, and I got the error;
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= boot arg
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:18.104.22.168ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)(initramfs) After searching the Internet, I found a "solution". I just had to boot with a USB stick with the Ubuntu Rescue Remix (the normal Ubuntu USB won't boot either), and i wrote;
sudo fsck /dev/sdb5
Now I could start my Ubuntu again. So whats the problem? If I turn off my computer the normal way, there is no problem, but if I log off, put it into sleep mode, if something happens and I have to turn it off with the button it goes back to the first problem, and I have to reboot it with the USB stick and fix it all over again! If I don't have the USB stick with me, I probably wont be able to use my laptop!
I've just installed subversion.I need to create a script /etc/init.d/svnserve that will start at boot time.I want to use start-stop-daemon --start so I can track my process and eventually kill it using start-stop-daemon --stop.My problem is that I can't get it to work and the documentation shows no exemple.
I've replaced $DAEMON by the whole line: svnserve -d -R -r $REPO_ROOT and got -d is not an option.I'm not quite sure what to do at that point. If someone has some experience with start-stop-daemon it would be great.
I upgraded from Ubuntu 10.0.4 to 11.0.4 on a Dell Optiplex. Now, when I boot, I am given the option to boot into different kernels. I select "ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic", which results in a black screen that reads
init: plymouth main process (58) killed by SEGV signal and that's where it hangs. Pressing ENTER or hitting Esc does nothing. What steps can I take to recover my machine and all the files I used to have on it?

error: failed to init transaction(unable to lock database)if you're sure a package manager is not already running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck and there was the same error when i try to install a package. I recently did a full system update could that be the problem?
