  1. for some reason I keep getting a missing file dependancy for libslang.so.1. i checked in my /usr/lib and i found it links to libslang.so.1.4.5. ive tried to reinstall packages with it but to no avail. no surprise though, im used to it being a noob. im running fc6 thanks scott
  2. Hello all, I was in the process of learning linux a couple months ago but, as always, I drift away from learning it and I forget most of everything. last time around I was in the process of configuring my Netgear WG311T to work. It is not detected by linux but I did a "yum install madwifi". I did a "lspci" to find out the chipset for my card and according the the madwifi website it is supported by madwifi. I am a n00b and I am lost as to what to do now. How do I get my NIC to work? Thanks, Scott
  3. is there some sort of flag or option that i can point the fixmbr command to the usb drive? ive done fixmbr for hard drive 0 (or whatever the windows equivalent of /dev/hda is) but i havent done it where i tell what device it goes to.
  4. I did fdisk -l -u /dev/sda and heres what I got. Disk /dev/sda: 6144 MB, 6144638976 bytes 149 heads, 32 sectors/track, 2517 cylinders, total 12001248 sectors Units = sectors of 1*512 = 512 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 62 12001247 6000593 7 HPFS/NTFS I have reformatted several times and sda1 ALWAYS starts on sector 62. I'm not too used to working indepth with boot sectors so I'm gonna take a wild guess and just assume that the first 61 sectors are the boot sectors. Any thoughts?
  5. Well, znx I did dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1 I did get a change. When I have it plugged in while booting, it no longer boots GRUB, but the computer doesn't boot anything at all. It just sits there with a black screen and a blinking text cursor/underscore thingy in the upper left hand corner of the screen. I reformatted the disk with FDISK but I'm going to use windows now to repartition it to see if it does anything now.
  6. Hello all, I am having troubles with a USB Pen Drive. I tried to install FC4 on my 6GB Pen Drive a while back and installed GRUB on the boot sectors of the drive. Unfortunately, I never actually got it to work quite right and I reformatted my pen drive to make it windows compatible again. However, whenever I boot with the drive in the usb port, GRUB still loads. I'm sure there is some easy way to fix this but I don't know what. How can I erase the boot sectors on my drive? Thanks in advance, Scott
  7. I had already checked device.map earlier and it gave me: (fd0) /dev/fd0 (hd0) /dev/hda (hd1) /dev/sda in terminal i typed fdisk /dev/sda to check to see if my partitions were correct /dev/sda1 boot flag starts on cylinder 1 ends on cylinder 935 filesystem ID 83 /dev/sda2 starts on cylinder 936 ends on cylinder 1018 filesystem ID 82 then i went into the GRUB shell and tried to set my root as (hd1,0) (i tried this before also, but it didnt seem to work before). it worked and it told me the filesystem was 0x83, so that was good. i made the changes to my grub
  8. i try but it always says it cant find the kernel. here is my grub.conf on my pen drive: #boot=/dev/sda default=0 timeout=5 splashimage=(hd1,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title Fedora Core-usb (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) root (hd1,1) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet initrd /boot/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4-usb.img Note: I had to make a custom initrd according to a tutorial i found online. Also I have one hard internal HDD and I guess GRUB sees USB as (hd#,#) right? My internal HDD is hd0 and FC4 is installed on sda1. Since it is on sda1, I thought
  9. im having a little trouble with this. i have a netgear WG311T first and foremost. on my windows OS it says that im using wg311t13.sys for the driver, so i used that first when trying to install. it didnt work so i deleted it and i used wg311t13.inf instead. after i installed i did ndiswrapper -l and it said: Installed ndis drivers: wg311t13 and that was it. it didnt say anything about hardware being present. did i do something wrong? whenever i try modprobe ndiswrapper my compy freezes up. Note: I found my NIC when I did lspci so i know my compy is reading the card
  10. yes i installed grub on the pen drive, and i turned my legacy USB on with USB as my first boot selection. it will load grub, i just cant figure out how to get grub to load fc4 on the pen drive, it can never find the kernel
  11. anyone know of a way i can install a bootloader to a usb and point it to a usb? i thought about trying lilo, but once again im a noob and thought id ask before i go screwin stuff up
  12. i toyed around for a bit and i did a rpm -ivh command so i expected to find another entry in GRUB but it was the same entry. ntfs works now i just expected to find a new kernel installed. was it overwritten? and about my first question earlier, i have kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp. i need a source rpm for it but all ive found it kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm when i need kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.src.rpm correct? or can i just use the non-SMP version?
