What it looks like to me is PM screwed up your partition and didn't correctly imput the new partition to the table. Therefore the only thing it seams to me that you 'could' do is redo that partition. ie. delete, format, readd and then install linux AGAIN. I've been on ALOT of forums the past few days and I seen a couple entitled "PM screwed up my linux system" or equivilants of that nature. Personally I use fdisk, hasn't even screwed my table up before. And oh yeah, it's FREE!! heh. Seams like your best bet to me. I mean if your partition table IS screwed not much as you can really do. But if that error comes up but means something other than what it says, then someone may have had it and will come in here and correct me. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Same problem is happening with me. So far I've been told to close and stop any useless program from starting up. That's about all the advice they seam to give. Also make sure you have the latest nvidia drivers installed from their website. This improved MY performance a tad.Strangely some people say they don't notice any degrade in system performance coming from other distros and then some people do. Personally I just came from mandrake 9.1 and I notice a BIG difference in system performance. Oddly I found my cpu running wildly for no reason like it was trying to open something. But nothing is running except programs ran after a fresh install beause that's what this is minus updated vid drivers. But I just rebooted and didn't open anything so what's it running? Weird stuff. The light will blink wildly and what not. I've heard others complain about this too not sure what it is. Could also be the reason for 'my' slow perforance.

After an hour of forum and google searching I found out I needed to edit /etc/innited file.. or something rather similar... this was a bit ago but I wanted to let you guys know it was solved, perhaps you can delete this thread. ??

Switched from mandrake 9.1 to red hat 9 this morning and even tho I'm still using KDE, alot has switched around on me for some odd reason. I'm having problems finding out the option to logout to the prompt so I can update my vid drivers. Which is required they say. So anyone know where it's hiding? I googled and read through the help but I didn't see anything about it other than to try ctrl+alt+backspace... but that just logs me out to the graphical prompt and that thing only asks for a user name. I want the regular old text prompt of a non X nature...help, plz!!

Well I'm not sure what I did wrong, it said the changes would take place immediately. But I saw no changes. I had copied back over my backup file. And here is what it contains

# .bash_profile



# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME


Where in that would I place my prompt code? I tried placing it at the VERY end of the file and just after the first line. Neither worked. sad.gif

Stupid chmod.. it made me think I was going crazy. For a time I had thought perhaps I wasn't typing it wrong and had retyped it over and over. Thanx for informing me of chmod and vfat conflictions. I'll look into that and hopefully get it working.

I would think that it would be relevant to the way the program itself initializes and uses sound. I've played the same mp3 in different mp3 players on windows and I noticed a sound quality difference. While it was slight and not a dramatic difference, this fact leads me to believe what I previously stated about programs handling sound quality. I could be wrong. I can't use sound in linux because my lovely sound card manufacturer doesn't seam to support it at this current time. So my statement IS inconclusive and is obviously opinionated due to this fact. smile.gif

I was doing some more researching trying to find an answer to my problems... this site helped http://beyond.linuxfromscratch.org/view/cvs/x/atk.html It was able to give me instructions that used ./configure, make, make install within one command and for some ODD reason it seamed to bypass my problem.

Did you do ./configure first? Currently I'm trying to install that same thing and having problems as well. I can ./configure and make with no problem. make check doesn't test at all, no fails passes, cuz no test run. And make install flashes by in a second and going to run the gtk2 ./configure tells me atk still isn't installed. Which I figured because the atk install seamed very quick and incomplete.

My machine auto mounts them.. I can su into root and access them NO problem. But when I exit out and login as my user he can't do diddly squat. Makes no sense why chmod doesn't work AS root. I tried adding ALL permissions to this directory just for the hell of it and they still didn't change for shit. No my system is fat32 ONLY. I refuse to use ntfs file systems.

After messing around with help files and commands and after trying to cd to this /mnt/win_d partition in command prompt and getting permission denied I came to the conclusion that perhaps my permissions aren't correct. ls -l in the mount folder shows me that it gives the group and other users read access. So I su into root and do chmod 775 /dev/hda5/ where hda5 is the device for the windows partition I'm trying to access. After doing this and doing ls -l again in the /mnt folder I find that it didn't change these permissions. Hrm... am I doing something wrong? Am I forgetting to do something? Or perhaps these changes aren't immediate unless I perform anotehr command afterwards? Even so, why am I getting permission denied EVEN THOUGH all users should have read access, at least?!

Sounds simple enough, and I appreciate a very informitive response. Only one problem. Where SHOULD it be installing atk to? And why? I'm gonna check where it's installing it too via that command and check the help file a bit more thouroughly. Thanx.

Yes I've logged as root both via su and via logging out my user(out of x and prompt, completely). I don't understand the problem. I don't even understand why it did this in the first place. *sigh*

Ok still no luck. I tried logging directly into a prompt as root after logging out my user and su'ing in and still don't work. I've done chmod 755 and 700 as I see that used for a user in another instance. I've tried logging out after each of these tests thinking maybe it won't take place until I reboot X (windows mind frame again) and still no go. Anyone have ANY ideas?

First off I'd like to say that page is nice, but the problem I am having now is that I don't know where within all this code from my bashrc I should put my new prompt code... take a look at you'll see what I mean.. I am supposed to add an export code within all this junk. Where tho?


# /etc/bashrc

# System wide functions and aliases
# Environment stuff goes in /etc/profile

# by default, we want this to get set.
# Even for non-interactive, non-login shells.
if [ "`id -gn`" = "`id -un`" -a `id -u` -gt 99 ]; then
umask 002
else
umask 022
fi

# are we an interactive shell?
if [ "$PS1" ]; then
case $TERM in
xterm*)
PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "33]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME}: ${PWD}07"'
;;
*)
;;
esac
[ "$PS1" = "\s-\v\$ " ] && PS1="[u@h W]\$ "

if [ -z "$loginsh" ]; then # We're not a login shell
for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do
if [ -x $i ]; then
. $i
fi
done
fi
fi

unset loginsh

Naw, Windows software isn't that smart, don't listen to what they say and all that. 6 months seams about the max lifetime of ANY of my windows installs. And not just because I mess around with them. One time I had 2 diff harddrives with 2 XP installs, again just for testing. The one install I didn't mess with except for adding the updates and security patches lasted around ht e6 month range and just started acting screwy. So I reinstalled it and no probs after that for a bit. Finally finished my testing and just kept the first install in which my games and everything was on and still had problems with that. This is the whole reason I started my linux journey. Windows is NOT stable every, I don't care what other people say. Except for the windows server or NT versions you won't see a stable install last over a year.

Ok after re reading.. I had two follow 2 links but I found what you were talking about warheros. I tried that chmod 775 /dev/hda2 which is where the partition I need access to as my user is. Doesn't do anything.. I try and cd and still get permission denied. And it is already mounted because mount with no options tells me so. I had this problem once before and was only able to fix it with a reinstallation or two. When in doubt backup and reintsall I say , in those cases they were fresh installs so no problem but I'm soo far into customization and have so much installed. I'm too scared to even think about formatting and reinstalling. I'd rather not have the access to the extra space than doing that. hehe. Or I'd rather just su into root in xterm and do a command mv or cp. I like the ease and use of the gui but I'm not about to lose everything I just did over 'ease of use'. I made be a noob but I'm not dumb. smile.gif

Ok I finally was able to determine that pango was missing a devel package that I installed from mandrakes package installer. After doing this, those pango ./configure errors vanished and I was able to install it. Now on to the last dependancy.. YES!!!!... atk 1.2

./configure - Seams fine I get no errors
make - same thing, no errors
make check - I always do this to double check... oddly, it doesn't say any tests fail OR pass. Also seams short and incomplete in a way. Moving on.
make install - Seams quick, short lived and odd. "was that it?" I guess so, so I move on.

Ok now I goto install gtk 2.2 MY GOAL, because finally it seams I have all the dependancy problems filled. So I goto ./configure and what do I say... my favorite error message BUT this time it says atk 1.2 isn't installed. OMG. No errors or nothing just a seamingly short install and it doesn't work. I tried redownloading but nope. Any clues guys? I'm really stuck now because at least before I was getting error messages.

Ok, since the last post before all this off topic bs started.. which I've moved on from, I've figured out a cut and dry question for you. Seams I can't ask antyhing else. tongue.gif

What are the 3 largest directories and why? Are they / /usr and /home ??
Where do the MAJORITY of programs go for either root OR user? /usr/bin ?
Or do root and user have different places in which programs get stored?

BTW, I'm talking predertermined, I'm too new to just be placing stuff anywhere, whereever make install wants to install stuff is fine with me as long as it's logged and is able to be uninstalled, which it has to be. I'm just stating this. I don't see why asking my opinion was so hard though. You obviously have used linux longer than me and I thought that I'd get a better answer out of experienced linux users, rather than reading... " ok this folder holds this stuff so I'll make it this big and that folder holds that so maybe I can squeeze it in a gig, I SUPPOSE.. this might be enough space" , and then after I do that finding out.. " oh shit, I was waaay off now I'm screwed". That's all, nothing special.

And to make you understand these questions a bit more.. WinXP has the same TYPE of feature... root login and user login... different file and folder permissions etc. BUT windows uses a SINGLE folder.. Program Files to hold programs for ALL users. This is why I'm so confused. As I said before I'm on a windows mind frame and trying to change it so I can see a bit more clearly while using *nix os's.

I hope this clears matters up a bit for I'm at my wit's end of trying to explain something so simple.
