I've had such good luck with Fedora (and this Forum), I'm attempting to put F12 on wife's brand new Sony Vaio, a VPCEB11FM, a 64bit system. I downloaded the Fedora-12-x86_64-netinst.iso, made sure it was ok with sha256.exe, then burned the image to DVD. Booted it up and let it default to "install or upgrade an existing system". It dead-ended in a dark blue or black screen. I re-started and examined the other options. Thought I'd try the one that says: "Install system with basic video driver". Got all the way through to where it got ready to start downloading files. Can't get past that point because it attempts to get to the Internet using the Sony's wireless card! Why would it try the wireless when there's a wired NIC card in this PC that requires no special driver etc. How to proceed from here?
Having read several threads and received excellent previous advice there are just a couple of points I want to check please before proceeding on laptop. I want to upgrade to 11.4 from 11.2. My disk setup is as follows:-
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 15505 cylinders Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes Disk identifier: 0x462d462c
If I select existing /home root and swap partitions, format root but prevent formatting of /home and use a different user ID I believe that will leave my existing data intact and will allow me to trial new os. Is this correct approach? If all goes well and when I have new system working correctly, what is best way make old user id date accessible. Can I simply create my old id on new system and will that allow me to access data when I log on with that id?
Second question; at present I have the ability to boot to openSUSE, OS/2 and windoze. (It used to be done entirely by Boot Manager but during my last Linux installation I messed this up a bit so now machine boots to grub and this offers all three operating systems but chain loads Boot Manager if I select OS/2)
When I do the new installation what should I select to retain this setup so that I still have access to windoze and OS/2 but when selecting linux have new 11.4 system run.
I am very new to linux. I just got the dual boot working a couple of days ago. Now I downloaded MATLAB (2009b) from my university website. It came in a zip file...well I have no clue how to install it. I looked at the instruction manual, it doesn't really explain much.
I understand that you can "rpm -i <packagename>" to install an rpm file downloaded from the internet, but is that the best way to install an rpm package? Is it possible to use yum to install an rpm file downloaded from the internet, if so, is that a better method?
On a Linux CD/DVD, there are compressed filesystem images for the live version for KDE or Gnome for example, but they have no extension, but they are clearly an image file ( compressed filesystem images for the live version before installation ) !!
I was wondering, How do I mount these compressed filesystem images, after I copy the ISO content of the CD/DVD on my system .... I want to edit some files or packages and make some changes, like if I want to customize a live version of gnome for example ! ... ( I know you might be tempted to tell me to use KIWI etc to customize etc ..... ) ... but I want to be able to mount the compressed file system image, then edit it for reading and writing while it is in a subdirectory on its own ... i want to open it ! ... is there a way to do this ??? ... these type of files have no extension ...
i can open this compressed filesystem image then to edit for read & write ... before I roll it back again ..... If and when I succeed .... what should I watch out for ? ... will the same compressed file image but slightly modified work again ?
PS. that same question could be kind of translated or be extended like : how do I use unionfs/squashfs programs on the command line to mount these image files with no extension for read & write mode ???
I did not upgrade my system when the 9.10 version was released but I'd like to do it now. The update manager gives me 9.10 as the only available option...this would mean I have to upgrade my system twice...is there any way to upgrade directly to 10.4 without passing through 9.10?
Update Manager lists the 'latest version" as 10.10, so I assume I should upgrade to that, download all the updates for 10.10, then upgrade to 11.04, or should I just do a clean install of the / partition? I have my HDD divided up" / /swap /home, and /home has three users. And if this question has been posted many times before - feel free to beat me up. I can take it
I'm trying to keep my desktop without a net connection as up to date as possible. It currently has jaunty installed, but I'd like to upgrade to lucid via dvd, is it possible without going through karmic as an intermediate? I prefer not to waste my DVDs, I'm even passing my lucid disk around to friends after the install.
I found a way to perform this task using ffmpeg to convert the mp3 file to a wav file, and converting the wav into a swf file using swftools (wav2swf), although this is not a good option because the output swf file size is very big - for a 12mb input 320kbps stereo mp3 file, the swf file is 25mb. Also downloaded a free direct mp3 to swf conversion software, which had an output swf file - with the same 12mb mp3 file - of ~400kb.
The requirements I have from the tool are:
1. Can be ran from the shell.
2. Direct conversion, or an indirect one that will produce a small output swf file.
I use a Karmic Koala and I want to upgrade to Lucid Lynx. All the packages are up to date. So if I upgrade online, how much data download am I looking at? I have a sufficiently fast connection, but I have a limit on the data that I can download. Is it less than downloading a Lucid Lynx CD? Can I get an exact figure somehow?
I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:
john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00 john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
I created a customized version of a package, and when I did an upgrade later the source build got overwritten.How can I configure the package system to stop that from happening even if the main repositories have newer versions?
When I had 9.10 installed I had /home and / on separate partitions but this time, I wanted them both within the same. I downloaded my old home partition to an external drive, wiped the old partitions and installed lucid but now I can't mount the drive. I am trying to use:
Code: sudo mount -o loop -t auto /mnt/storage/home.img /mnt/oldhome/ but I get an error of wrong fs type, bad option or bad superblock. fdisk -l shows:
I am running Intrepid Ibex 64-bit, and I have recently ripped a cd with EAC on one of my windows boxes, and it produced a cue sheet and one single wave file for the entire cd. My question is this, is it possible to take the wave file, burn an ISO image that acts exactly like the original cd? In other words, take the single wave file, using the cue sheet splitting it back into it's individual tracks, and then reading the subsequent ISO image from a program like Sound Juicer, so it can write all the metadata and convert it with my own preferences. I know this is a very strange predicament, but it's one that would save me a world of hassle.
I have an old server I build 7 years ago. I have a RAID5 with 5x2TB HD's and I'm planning a major hardware overhaul. My server currently runs on a Pentium4 3.2 Ghz (pre multicore technology) on a SuperMicro mobo. I'm planning to switch to an AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6.
So here's the question. Can I just plug my drives to the new board and restart the RAID like nothing happened? I don't have space to backup all my data if I have to recreate the RAID from scratch.
The title's not especially clear, so I'll post a screenshot of what's happening. The upgrade keeps finding instances of the same kernel; the list in the terminal is constantly scrolling down, finding 'new' instances.
It's been doing this for about half an hour now. BTW, upgrading from 64bit 9.10 to 64bit 10.04.
I just upgraded from F12 to F13 and the result is a mess. From F11 to F12, I*used preupgrade and it worked flawlessly. This time, the process ended on a blank screen. So, I downloaded the DVD and I suppose the files downloaded by preupgarde were used as there were almost no connections to the net during the upgrade process. The problem now is that apparently almost all the FC12 files are still on my system:
Of course, as I said, the previous upgrade went flawlessly and I didn't check what happened on the system with the rpm and locate commands but I doubt is looked that bad. Seeing what kind of mess my system was turned into, I now worry about the next upgrade.
The Payment Card Institute (PCI) is requiring our site to upgrade to the latest versions of Apache, Mysql, OpenSSL, and PHP to fix known bugs that can compromise securityI can build all these from source, but when I do "make install" they don't mimic at all what is installed (directory format, files, etc) when I do apt-get install (of whatever old versions are in the dist).How can I find out how the packages are build via configure/make so that I can replicate the files, directory structure, etc, just with the current versions.
Now I want to append contents list2.cfg to list1.cfg(It ispposible using cat list2.cfg >>list1.cfg) but I want to check if content of (record) in list2.cfg is present in list1.cfg then dont append it otherwise append it.
I downloaded the Fedora respin DVD from [URL]. I burned the image and tried to upgrade my existing RussianFedora 10 distro. However, even after the successful completion of upgrade process, I boot into the same old RussianFedora 10. I would, also, like to mention that the upgrade process seemed to be unusually fast, it took only 15 mins for the complete process!
