    Thank u very much rjivaro, problem has been fixed. virt-install is working now. It was a problem related to permissions in the file system.

  • rjivaro May 11, 2010

    Well it is obviously complaining about the existence of the .virtinst subdirectory in the /root directory. There could be more to it that just that, based on the messages, but a good place to start would be to pull up a terminal and type:
    mv ~/.virtinst ~/.virtinst.BAK
    This will rename the directory, giving it a .BAK extension in case you want to access what is in it. Then try your virt-install command again. Double check your syntax to be sure you have all the options and arguments you need and that you have correct spelling and capitalization.
    As an aside, it is generally a bad idea to do things as root so if you aren't, try to get into the habit of doing things as a regular user and take advantage of sudo when you need to run scripts or programs with administrative privileges.
    This ability is one of the great strengths of unix like systems. General system use is done in user space so the system is protected from human mistakes.

How to fix mySQL corrupt databases?


you should follow two steps:

Create an appropriately named database on the target machine
Load the file using the mysql command:
$ mysql -u [uname] -p[pass] [db_to_restore] < [backupfile.sql]
Have a look how you can restore your tut_backup.sql file to the Tutorials database.
$ mysql -u root -p Tutorials < tut_backup.sql
To restore compressed backup files you can do the following:
gunzip < [backupfile.sql.gz] ' mysql -u [uname] -p[pass] [dbname]
If you need to restore a database that already exists, you'll need to use mysqlimport
command. The syntax for mysqlimport is as follows:
mysqlimport -u [uname] -p[pass] [dbname] [backupfile.sql]

Or make use of Repair Toolbox for MySQL

Htldr missing and beeping


Hi,

CAUSE:

This problem may occur if the MFT root folder is severely fragmented. If the MFT root folder contains many files, the MFT may become so fragmented that an additional allocation index is created. Because files are mapped alphabetically in the allocation indexes, the NTLDR file may be pushed to the second allocation index. When this occurs, you receive the error message that is described in the "Symptoms" section.

Typically, files are not written to the root folder. This condition may occur if a program regularly creates and removes temporary files in the root folder, or if many files are copied to the root folder by mistake.

SOLUTION:

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Contact Microsoft Customer Support Services to obtain the Bcupdate2.exe utility. For more information about how to contact Microsoft Customer Support Services, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support (http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support)
  2. Insert the Windows XP cd and boot from the Windows XP cd, Press R option to repair and you get command prompt
  3. Run the following command at the command prompt to extract the Bcupdate2.exe utility from the software update:
    Expand drive_letter:\bcupdate2.ex_ drive_letter:\bcupdate2.exe
  4. Run the following command at the command prompt to update the boot code of the NTFS boot sector:
    Bcupdate2.exe C: /F

    Note Other command-line parameters are supported: /q - Quiet mode (must include /y)
    /y - Don't confirm
    /f - Force update of in use volume
    /t - Only test for old boot code
  5. Press Y if you are prompted to update the volume. You receive the following message after you successfully run this utility: The boot code was updated successfully
If you are novoice user and if you feel these step as difficult, simply reinstall the windows

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

Wirless driver for linux


hi linksys doenot have the wireless drivers for linux but you can try the following steps:
-download the windows drivers. Extract them to c:\temp\linksys
- Now burn them or put them on a media or somthing so you can transfer these files over to linux (note: linux wont beable to extract the exe file)
- Download ndiswrapper for linux located at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=93482
- Now make sure you have all the development tools installed in fedora
- Now download dhcpcd from http://www.phystech.com/ftp/dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4.tar.gz
- log into your linux box as root
- Now make make sure all the files (*gz files, and linksys driver files) are in the root partition on the linux machine (/root/wireless_driver) if "wireless_driver" is not there make the directory (which u will have to do) "mkdir /root/wireless_driver"
- now at the command prompt (terminal) go into the "wireless_driver" directory "cd /root/wireless_driver"
- now type "tar xvfpz ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz"
- "cd ndiswrapper-0.12"
- "make install"
- "cd .."
- "tar xvfpz dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4.tar.gz"
- "cd dhcpcd-1.3.22"
- "./configure"
- "make && make install"
- "cd .."
- "source /etc/profile" (note: you might want to edit root's .bashrc and add source /etc/profile there, some how fc3 doesnt have root source /etc/profile for some reason)
- "cd /root/wireless_driver/WMP54GS_20040423/Drivers"
- "ndiswrapper -i BCMWL5.inf"
- "ls /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5" u should get a list of alot file in here
- "modprobe ndiswrapper"
- "dmesg wlan0" show see wlan0 if its there your good if not then somthings wrong - please post everything thats comes out of dmesg "dmesg > demout"
- now for a little script open your favorite text editor and copy the following code:
#Sample ndiswrapper script - By: Derrick Rose
#Load ndiswrapper module
echo "Starting Ndiswrapper Driver..."
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
#Setup Essid
echo "Setting up ESSID..."
iwconfig wlan0 essid "your essid here"
#Setup WEP Key if you have one
#Uncomment below for WEP
#echo "Setting up KEY..."
#iwconfig wlan0 key yourkeyhere
#Setting up DHCP on wlan0
echo "Starting DHCP on wlan0 [ 10 sec timeout ]"
dhcpcd -t 10 wlan0

- the script above will setup your wireless card for. Now save this to a file in roots directory (/root) called wireless
- "chmod +x wireless"
- to run manually type "./wireless" as root
- If you want to automaticly load on startup do the following
- "cat wireless >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local"
restart the computer..adn then check

vedhick.....
