  1. [ubuntu] Re: VMware tools installation fails on Ubuntu Lucid client at VMware Server 2.0.2

  2. [ubuntu] Re: VMware tools installation fails on Ubuntu Lucid client at VMware Server 2.0.2

    VMware's kernel modules are built for a slightly older version of the Linux kernel than the one that Lucid uses. There are a few minor pieces of incompatibility with the newer 2.6.32 version that...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: nslookup/nsupdate/host/dig libdns64: undefined symbol: GeoIP_country_name_by_ipnu

    This was caused by the presence of an old version of GeoIP in /usr/local/lib.

    My work uses a workstation bootstrapping script to quickly install all required tools and libraries. Instead of using...
  4. [SOLVED] nslookup/nsupdate/host/dig libdns64: undefined symbol: GeoIP_country_name_by_ipnum_v6

    A few days ago, I performed a clean installation using the 10.04 xubuntu RC install CD. I've installed all of the available package updates.

    Most of the utilities that rely on libdns64 (i.e. those...

    Awesome! Glad one of these crazy ideas finally panned out. :p
  6. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Gack, what an annoyance :( At least you got networking up :)

    You can try to install it with dpkg instead of syntaptic, although who knows whether it'll actually install given that syntaptic is...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Ah sorry, I missed that. It could be that the cdrom doesn't actually contain an installable kernel package, since it copies over a base system. I'm really shooting in the dark with that explanation....
  8. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Hmm. Did you update your package lists before trying that? You probably did... I just want to cover all of the bases.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Ah, that makes sense then. You'd have to use iwconfig to get on the network, and that's a pain.

    Try this:

    Make a backup copy of /etc/apt/sources.list
    Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and remove...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Do you use Wifi, or a cable for your internet connection?

    What does this command output?

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ grep cdrom /etc/apt/sources.list

    If there is a cdrom line in your sources.list, you...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Yeah, mount -a won't work in this situation. I think it's because your real UUIDs are in the *livecd's* /dev, but you've chrooted into another /dev. It doesn't matter, now that you've mounted your...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    You just need to mount it using the device name instead of the UUID. The UUID isn't working because you didn't go through the normal bootup procedure, so it isn't set up.

    Try this:
    ...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    It actually is in /etc/fstab - looks like it's your /dev/sda6 device's UUID.

    What does mount with the -l flag output?


    root@ubuntu:/# mount -l

    That will show currently mounted devices. Not...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Hmm... two thoughts on that:


    Your networking probably isn't running, so you won't be able to download stuff
    /var might be mounted elsewhere (!?)


    For the first, try running this:
    ...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    The env-update error doesn't matter; I guess that's a Gentoo-only thing.

    What does the following output?

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount -l

    Also, can you post the output of:

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ cat...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    Oh, oops -- it looks like I reversed the parameters. The device needs to come first, and then the directory you'd like to mount. I also accidentally told you to mount it to / -- that doesn't work,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Internet settings

    Are you perhaps just zoomed in? Try hitting Ctrl + 0 (that's a Zero, not an Oh) to reset your FF zoom level.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: How to install (only) a kernel from an installation CD

    This is definitely possible to do, but it'll be tricky. I'd advise following the install method that Gentoo uses: booting into a shell using the install disk, mounting the drive, and chrooting your...

    You likely need to install the msttcorefonts package. Many websites are designed to display fonts that are packaged with Windows but not Linux; this package makes things look much better.

    Re: Has Karmic had more initial problems?

    Huh, that's interesting. I'm running Compiz under Xubuntu without problems, so maybe your problem is with some gnome desktop packages.

    Re: Has Karmic had more initial problems?

    Xubuntu 9.10 was rock solid for me from alpha6 on. This was a fresh install, so I can't speak to the upgrade path.

    You can get the best of both downloading worlds if you use a client that supports .metalink files. Metalink files allow a content provide to specify many different download sources - so you can...

    [SOLVED] Re: id_rsa vs id_rsa.pub

    They're a key pair: id_rsa is your private key -- it should be kept secret, so that only you can use it; and id_rsa.pub is your public key -- you give it out so that others can verify that a given...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.04 server help needed.

    Which HOWTO are you reading? Can you provide a link?

    It sounds as if you're trying to configure the server's IP address manually. Is that what you're doing? Are you sure it's what you want to do?...
