My solution to LUKS and keyboard layout problems is to add the passphrase twice. So the same sequence of key presses will be accepted in both US/qwerty layout and whatever you usually use (in my case, DE/qwertz). If you use more than one keyboard layout you can add more passphrases for them; LUKS supports up to 8 in total, and most people never use more ...

I called VMWare, who said it was unsupported. As a result, they gave me a refund, and the link to request it as a feature in the next release... The 32-bit version works however. My guess is one could do some debugging of the GRUB boot-loader to figure out what is really happening.

Would you mind expanding on how you "using OS X recovery to bless the grubx64.efi file"? I booted from an OS X installation SD card, started a terminal but was not able to mount the fat32 EFI partition. I tried mount -t exfat /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/xxx but it came back saying "Invalid argument". I also tried -t msdos to no avail.

Fix The easiest way to do this is to create a chroot, and then perform the repair operations inside the chroot. You do this by: Verify the network works outside the chroot. Issue a sudo ifconfig. Create a mountpoint for your installation that needs fixing. Issue a sudo mkdir -pv /mnt/mymint Now mount your installation. Issue sudo mount -v -t ext4 ...

Download the package(s) that you need and use dkpg with the --instdir option: dpkg --instdir=/path/to/mounted/HDD --install yourpackage.deb you might want to use --purge (also with the appropriate --instdir!!) first if dpkg doesn't want to overwrite a half installed package.

I would suggest to check the MBR partition table, to see maybe you have a problem in the physical drive mapping. There are few websites and tools, where you can just paste the contents of your mbr, and they will analyze it for you. Also, make sure your USB is not bootable (run fdisk /dev/sdX, press p and check that no partition has the bootable flag on) To ...

Your system should work properly with the battery out. Having to replace the battery sounds like a hardware issue. Anyway, I've seen something similar happen in Ubuntu VMs, where the wrong framebuffer is being selected, which causes very, very slow console updates. In this case, try adding vga16fb.modeset=0 to your kernel boot options. 1

You should be able to pull this off, but there are a few things to keep in mind: Not having /tmp on your flash drive is a good thing, but you might consider living without a permanent on at all, mine is a tmpfs. If you cannot mount /tmp during boot, things will go on the flashdrive in /tmp If you copy mount /var from the harddrive for reasons of ...

Based upon experimentation and some information I was able to scrounge up: If you experience the above symptoms and you are using an old laptop with a battery that is near death, then basically your battery has reached a point that it’s actually poisonous to you system. The workaround I posted in update1, may work for you. But, if you have the coin, you ...

I'd think out of the box, just go for a cheap aftermarket battery on ebay or somewhere else, real performance and capacity doesn't matter very much as you don't have any right now. Anyway on a 6-7 years old laptop any other component might fail before the new battery and you will enjoy a mobile laptop in the meanwhile which worth the $, not just a portable ...

Seems like you got trojan Linux.BackDoor.Gates.5 if you see /etc/init.d/.SSH /etc/sfewfesfs - check here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23292718/am-i-hacked-unknow-processes-dsfref-gfhddsfew-dsfref-etc-are-starting-automa

Whether your boot flash-disk is still usable I don't know, but there is a very good chance your data is still on the RAID, it is just that Ubuntu Live doesn't find it without some help. The following assumes the OMV uses the "normal" mdadm based raid setup¹. The first thing to do after booting your Ubuntu 14.04 live is install mdadm: sudo apt-get install ...

As it turns out, it seems the underlying issue was not having the right proprietary drivers installed for my nVidia graphics card. I was under the presumption that I had to use nVidia's driver installer, but installing the right packages from RPMFusion and disabling Nouveau worked perfectly. Since installing the necessary drivers, my system is running ...

Could you post your laptop specifications like company name etc.You could try out these options: 1.press Esc key while booting and do a Memory test or Run test. 2.Remove battery and restart the Laptop 3.This is bit risky but you could try it.Try shaking your laptop or moving it down but not to the floor. Reason for these options is:I tried all these ...

Found this for menuentry: The --class option may be used any number of times to group menu entries into classes. Menu themes may display different classes using different styles. You need to look at grub-themes for usage. Other options: The --users option grants specific users access to specific menu entries. See Security. The --unrestricted option ...

LiveCDs usually have something like a "Root terminal" you can open to do things as the superuser. From there, you should be able to cd to where the filesystem is mounted and simply mv the relevant directories. For example, if the mount point is /mnt/fs, and you want to move the /mnt/fs/home/me/whatever/etc directory back: > cd /mnt/fs > mv ...

You need an EFI bootable USB stick, no matter what distribution you plan to use. For example Porteus distribution offers it out of the box. So all you need to do is following: Go to Porteus Download section and select 64 bit varian and EFI support; rest can be default. Download your ISO image. Copy the content of the image to your USB stick. Run the ...

The image file will already contain partitions and a boot sector therefore you cannot copy it to a partition. Instead you need to copy the image to the whole SD Card: sudo dd if=Cubian-desktop-x1-a10-hdmi.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4096; sync Note the lack of p1 at the end of the output file. You could probably increase the block size too - try bs=1M ...

Try to run systemd-analyze critical-chain. I think the output is easier to read than the log. Well, it might just confirm that wicked is the culprit. I have no experience with wicked yet, but I would try to start it under strace to see where it hangs/times out or to run tcpdump in parallel to see what it tries to do on the net. Edit: Oops, I had missed your ...

Why not change the BOIS device boot order? Change your first HDD as first option Or another option is you can install EasyBCD in your Windows 7, and order the boot option a well.

I had a similar problem and here's what I had to do on FreeBSD 10.0. Since you don't yet have an answer, here's what I did. After the install (which I did with GPT and ZFS), I opted to go to the terminal instead of rebooting. I then ran the following commands. gpart set -a active /dev/ada0 gpart set -a bootme -i 1 /dev/ada0 '1' was the number of my boot ...
