well my system was running fine, and then i tried to open KDE and see how different it was from gnome. and soon after that i began to experience freezing and random shut downs. soon i was unable to even reboot my machine, it simply would not go into the x windows system. it would say, "your system appears to have shut down uncleanly, system check commencing" or something. so it would do that, find errors, i would say yes to everything to fix it, and it would say, "no restarting" and do the same thing all over again. so i decided to reinstall.

unfortuneatly, i cant even reinstall it now, ive downloaded three different rh9 cd sets, all apparently saying the cd's were "failed" but i tried them anyways, thinking that my machine was bad from the kde thing and so it told me everything was in bad, which it wasnt.

so does anyone know what i can do? the only thing ive come up with is actually finding or buying the real rh9 install cd's and doing that.

any help will be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance

~warheros

p.s. - install either freezes, turns the screen black, or says bad blocks cannot install on this machine.

my machine:
1.5 GHz
P4 Intel genuine
dell 4300
dual boot with winxp which crashed
512 MB RAM
bios v. A02
128 MB video card, 32 MB real

i just wanted to see the first 13 digits. the first one says it's a harddrive...the next three are permissions for root. which has read/write/executable permissions. user has the same permissions, and other only has read and executable permissions.

did you try turning your volume up higher? you said it was really low...did you check the volume mixer too?

so if youre logged in as user or root, you should be able to play them...i dont know what youre using to play your mp3's, but i would get xmms and try that, that's what i use (it's like winamp). and then youll need the mp3123 decoder to listen to mp3's, and make sure that is active.

try this for xmms

and here for the mp3 decoder for xmms

it's a stupid looking book, but i have found "linux for dummies" very useful for learning basic commands. such as:

cat
ls
chmod
chown
mv
mkdir
mvdir
cd
uptime (woooHOOOOOO!!!!)

and other modifications of all those. it's the very basic of basic books.

ive been messing around with rh9 for a few months now, and ive always had this problem with rpm's. they never want to install or install right. i think out of the many ive tried, only one rpm has actually installed correctly.

the thing that i have to do when i want to install something now is to compile it from its tarball.

me and an associate, have concluded that i should reinstall rh9, is this the only thing that can fix this?

the problem may have occured when i had to install rh9 from only the first two discs, as the third always failed its "being able to work" test when you first install linux. i had to install about seven times, guessing and checking what packages i could install without using the third disc.

any suggestions?

could i possibly install what i could be missing (that makes rpm's not install/work) from a disc 3 that actually works? who knows?!

i know in rh9, there is a pdf reader on the discs...so maybe that can convert them to pdf too?

from your x window shell...i believe you go to add/remove new applications or something, and you find it, check it, and push update. that will prompt you to put in whatever no. install cd you need to install it.

you could always take the LAN stuff out of your previous kernel and replace what you have as the LAN stuff in your new kernel with it...? i dont know though besides that, just an idea.

is your volume turned up? speakers plugged in?

make sure that you have the mp3 decoder selected as being active in your media player.

check the permissions on your harddrive/partition that your mp3's are on by doing this:

ls -l /yourpartition

this should spit out a line of info. the first 13 digits are your rights. the first digit tells you youre looking at a harddrive/partition, the next three give the rights of that harddrive/partition in respect to root, the next three are permissions of user, and the last three are permissions of other.

what are you logged into when youre trying to play the mp3's? root or a user?

go to a terminal, type in su, then your root password, and change that drive/partitions rights by typing this:

chmod 775 /yourpartition

that will give read/write/executable rights to root and user.

if that doesnt work, do the "ls -l /yourpartition" and post what it spits out at you.

hopefully one of these will work or help us find an answer.

so do you have a gui?

if so, go to something like system settings, then hardware browser, then to harddrives. you should be able to see every harddrive with their partitions in there with their names.

also, you can try this.

login as root by logging out of your gui x-windows. if you just type su to login as root in your user name in the terminal, it wont recognize this command. you must be logged in as root. then open up a terminal. type:

CODE
fdisk -l


this will give you information regarding your partitions/harddrives as well.

tell us if this works.

i was reading in my linux book on how to change the kernel so that it knows what processor you have, which could result in making linux go faster, if it thinks you have a smaller one anyways.

anyways, i tried to do it how the book said, but there is nothing in the file where the book's kernal code is. eh? i found out where my kernel is, but i dont know how to do this.

thanks in advance!

well, like i said, some commands cannot be used unless you are logged in directly as root. i know if you 'su' into root and try to use the fdisk commands, it doesnt even recognize them. so try logging in directly as root and stuff.

well...i dont know though...that could be...but i could never download and install windows xp pro service pack 1, it always said my serial was wrong. maybe that's why it finally crashed...all i use my windows partition for anymore is to store music on. and as soon as i get my modem working with rh9, i will bid windows farewell.

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?

are you logged in as root?

some commands dont work even if youre not logged in as root, and you type "su" to switch to root. you have to actually log out, and log in as root.

::cough::

i have given you answers to your problem. what you want to do involves more work than my solution, which would also work.

but it is also true that what you end up doing is your choice and cannot be drawn to one single correct way. and you must admit, your question does not provide only one answer. this is obvious because you have recieved a few different ones, all work. so with all these in mind, and i know that your specific question has not been answered, you have recieved an answer.

i gave you the answer i did because i dont know how to do what you want done.
