  1. [SOLVED] Re: Init scripts missing LSB headers; how to restore?

    Well, there was never going to be a solution to this problem because it is caused by the existence of upstart.

    Resolved by switching to Archlinux, which uses systemd instead. It may not be...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: GRUB doesn't recognize EFI drive to install on upgrade

    Issue resolved by giving up on the concept of using GRUB with UEFI.

    Users should be warned: The problems are very serious; dm-raid is not being maintained and should be deprecated for mdadm,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Sync stopped again, again.

    i get that this is a set of permissions for some file "-rwxr--r--" but I have no idea what file you are talking about.

    ubuntu-one should not be unsetting user-specified configurations (without...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: GRUB doesn't recognize EFI drive to install on upgrade

    >>oldfred

    Thanks for the advice.
    In fact, I finally got the system booting and grub installed.

    That thread may be old, but the failure of the grub installation process it describes has not...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: can't upgrade cryptsetup; insserv complains about checkroot

    Well, no one ever replied...

    If anyone ever has the same problem: delete the conflicting requirement from the init script and hope for the best.

    The installation finally came to an end, but...
  6. [ubuntu] Gstreamer1.0 segfault; unable to use any gstreamer applications

    I already filed a bug report for this.

    No gstreamer1.0 applications are usable for me. Gstreamer itself seems to be what's broken. I can't get a full list of the installed plugins from...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: can't upgrade cryptsetup; insserv complains about checkroot

    Carrying on, I've had to perform similar surgeries on about a half-dozen initscripts so far.

    Since there isn't any particular documentation on the changes made to the init system for Saucy,...
  8. [SOLVED] GRUB doesn't recognize EFI drive to install on upgrade

    Having the same problem as this thread that was closed before the issue was ever solved for some reason, blocking upgrade to saucy.

    The problem is definitely GRUB. The drive is correctly...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: can't upgrade cryptsetup; insserv complains about checkroot

    Can anyone tell me what level of good/bad idea this is: to proceed with the installation, I simply removed "checkroot" from the initscript header.
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Init scripts missing LSB headers; how to restore?

    What I really need is to know what the header for each of those scripts looks like on a working system. That is how this problem gets fixed. It doesn't matter what's going on with upstart at all.
  11. [SOLVED] can't upgrade cryptsetup; insserv complains about checkroot

    I had never heard of "checkroot" (apparently responsible for running fsck at boot on a schedule or when poorly rebooted) until today, and then this is blocking upgrade to saucy:

    insserv: Service...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Init scripts missing LSB headers; how to restore?

    Then what happened to the LSB headers they used to have? Those should NOT be removed, even if the job was converted to upstart. My entire init system is in pieces and insserv won't allow me to...
  13. [SOLVED] Init scripts missing LSB headers; how to restore?

    I've actually posted about this before, when it caused my computer to be unable to shutdown. In that case I got lucky, in that I was able to find proper start and stop runlevels for the shutdown...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu won't shutdown: shutdown sequence incomplete; stripped init scripts?

    It WORKED!

    My instincts were right. Something stripped my init scripts and ruined the shutdown sequence. I suppose I've been lucky, all this time, that anything worked at all.

    So next up: How...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu won't shutdown: shutdown sequence incomplete; stripped init scripts?

    Let me put this another way:

    One day Ubuntu inexplicably stopped entering runlevel 0. It just won't; no matter what kind of shutdown command is used.

    So, fumbling around in the dark as I am,...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Earthsoft PT2 (Japanese ISDB-T/S Capture Card)

    I had a brainstorm and improved this script by some orders of magnitude.

    I added a new button & feature: REC+Play
    [PWR][REC]
    [REC+PLAY]
    [CH+][CH-]This is about as feature-complete as I plan for...
  17. [SOLVED] Ubuntu won't shutdown: shutdown sequence incomplete; stripped init scripts?

    Recently, Ubuntu doesn't power off.

    It's not an ACPI or APM issue (ie, changes to grub are unnecessary and irrelevant) as I haven't had any with the kernel I've been using for most of the last...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Earthsoft PT2 (Japanese ISDB-T/S Capture Card)

    Rather than work on one of the more elaborate and feature-complete DVR apparatus available, I've continued to hack out a more advanced "basic remote control" script. The scripting is more advanced,...

    Re: gstreamer-vaapi, and other myths

    Thank you! Actually, I've been there. I haven't had much more luck compiling from git than I have from anything else. The driver backend I am using is nvidia's vdpau, which is installed and...

    Re: Fix NotifyOSD in Ubuntu+1

    One of my favorite bugs, a compiz display layering glitch, was "Fix Comitted" and then "Fix Relased" in "Ayatana Design".

    The bug hasn't been fixed at all, but the design apparently has. As yet,...

    Re: Fix NotifyOSD in Ubuntu+1

    No more Ayatana? It's actually a better name than "Unity" -- way too many things share that name.

    There already is a patch in the bug report. I don't know if it's in a bzr branch yet. It'll take...
