  I cannot install RedHat 8.8
Posted by: maxruas - 2023-11-10, 01:23 PM - Forum: Redhat - Replies (1)

Hi I have downloaded rhel-8.8-x86_64-dvd.iso and checked the check-sum against RedHat it seems good but I cannot manage to install it, always end up on
<Kernel Panic - not syncing: Fatal exception>
dracut:/# see image
I have a MacBook Pro i7 with 16gb of RAM, my virtual machine has 6700 RAM and 4 Processors
I have successfully installed Redhat 6x without a problem or Ubuntu and so on, I have downloaded the ISO from the REDHAT portal as a developer to try out the new version but I can not manage to install it. please any help is welcome. Thanks
The same happens if I try to install CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-2009.iso.

  How things are done, using bash to run simple command(s)?
Posted by: ross - 2023-09-04, 09:03 AM - Forum: Xorg Problems - No Replies

Good morning fine people of the Linux world.

Please, forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong section.  Was not sure where to post.
This is just query. After a bit of searching about, I found a solution to something I was looking to achieve, which was to switch my monitor off by clicking on a shortcut/icon,  so that at 3am when Im done watching whatever and Im half asleep, I dont have to reach over and switch the monitor off as one would usually do. 

My solution, a fairly simple one.  A bash script consisting of the following two lines.

sleep 1 && xset dpms force off

Well my primitive understanding is that bash is a simple programming language, which seems rather overkill simply to run a terminal command from a shortcut.  So my question is just about the way in which things are done.......have I reached the typical solution for such a desired result, or are there easier, more basic methods, to run terminal commands on demand/from shortcut, than to use bash

In Win, the typical solution would be a batch file, that is simply a list of commands to be ran.......and whilst my bash script is essentially the same thing, you are STILL having to elicit the use of programming language to do so.  I just cant imagine theres not a lower level way of getting such a simple job done?

Hope you dont mind me asking such a dumb question.  Thank you

  Using git + python
Posted by: Clueless puppy - 2020-08-21, 04:37 PM - Forum: How Do I? - No Replies

So here is my problem:

I wanted a window manager switcher and found this one:  https://github.com/xircon/wm-switcher. So I proceeded to clone it, so I could use it...

... and then I realized that I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it!


I'm used to windows but I am willing (and wanting)  to change. Problem is: I'm always expecting icons. If I needed to run a program I'd double-click it, even python scripts.




By the way, a little introduction:

I've been using windows for over 20 years, can fix the thing even if you try really hard to break it on purpose, I was very frustrated with win10 and a few days ago I finally had enough.

After doing some research I figured that Puppy Linux was ideal for me.

  CentOS vs.?
Posted by: volt - 2020-08-06, 02:29 PM - Forum: Just Starting Linux - No Replies

Hello all. I have recently bought a new computer and plan to convert the OS of my old computer to Linux. I am in the capstone for my Bachelor's in IT so I have a pretty good understanding of computers. I may look into earning certificates with RedHat so I am thinking about using CentOS as my distro. My questions are:

1. Is it a good distro for beginners? (Again, I have programming and IT education) 

2. Does anyone recommend any step-by-step (video or document) tutorials to completing the switch?

Thanks in advance for the responses.

  I displaced my linux partitions now boot takes a lot of time.
Posted by: MarvoIke - 2020-05-20, 09:05 PM - Forum: Just Starting Linux - No Replies

<span>Hello everyone, i have a problem and i need help, first of all, i moved totally to Linux (Debian10) probably like 8 months ago, i used </span><span><span>this tutorial for disk partitioning</span></span><span> and everything went perfect, then after some time i noticed that my /(root) partition was running out of space, the size of it was 30 GB, as the tutorial of disk partitioning suggested, and what i did was shrink the home partition (which is the biggest) moved it, and expand the root, all this on a Ubuntu live GParted, i have a dual-boot (be cause of uni i had to reinstall Windows) so after doing that, just in case, i ran Boot-Repair. Since then when i select Debian on Grub, it takes like between 5 - 8 mins to boot up whereas before the partition adjustment it toked like a 4th of that time, and keeps showing lots of errors like:</span>


<span>ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve [^^^GFXO.AFN2] , AE_NOT_FOUND (20180810/psargs-330)</span>


<span>ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed \_SB.PCIO.LPCB.H_EC._QC9, AE_NOT_FOUND (20180810/psparse-516)</span>

<span>/dev/sda2: clean, 504438/3049648 files, 7270848/12206336 blocks</span>



<span>Does anyone know how to help me?</span>

<span>I would really appreciate your help, thank you for reading.</span>

  Argument errors help please
Posted by: illiterate_newb - 2020-02-23, 07:02 PM - Forum: How Do I? - No Replies

<div style="color:rgb(26,26,27);">

What am i doing wrong here?


usage: ****** [-h] [-t USER_TARGETS [USER_TARGETS ...]]

[-u USER_URLS [USER_URLS ...]] [-q USER_QUERY] [--loose]


[-bc BC_PATH] [-sk] [-k CLI_APIKEYS [CLI_APIKEYS ...]]



[-ch [CHASE_LIMIT]] [--power-chase] [--hide] [--debug]


******: error: argument -o/--output: expected one argument

root@kali:~# ****** -o -t fakeuser@yahoo.com -bc /home/kali/Desktop/

root@kali:~# ****** -t fakeuser@yahoo.com -bc /home/kali/Desktop/ -o


I get the same error message with the -o in either spot. I was modeling this after some tutorials where they had other flags, although not the -o, and it worked from what I could tell so I just replaced theirs with the -o.


Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance!!!

  Drive Question
Posted by: researchcapt - 2020-01-12, 04:38 PM - Forum: How Do I? - Replies (1)

Please forgive me, I am coming from the windows world and am sure I am using the wrong labels/terminology regarding drives.

I have a Dell laptop with a 1TB NVMe C drive and a 2TB D spin drive.  I want to install Linux Mint Cinnamon to the C drive so that I get the greatest amount of speed which means disconnecting the D drive to insure the Linux is loaded to the C drive.  Can I later connect the D drive and use that for bulk storage?...like for photos.

Every time I install packages using the apt tool, this little error always pops up. The install goes fine, all packages work fine. But I just wanted to know if it's a legit error, and if I can fix it.
