  1. This is funny, feels like replying to myself. I ran into a similar problem writing multisession dvd-r disks on kubuntu feisty and k3b 1.0. What makes it worse is that the problem is never the same. Sometimes I see only the first session, other times the whole disk is unreadable (cannot be mounted) I have the problem only with HP dvd-r disks that I bought recently. All the disks from this batch have this problem. Before this, I used DVD-R disks made by Fujifilm and never had a problem with those. When I insert the bad disks in the drive and check "media info" in k3b, I can see all the previous sessions. I just cannot access them because they don't appear in konqueror or when running "ls" in the cli. BTW, is there a program that allows you to selectively extract one of the tracks from a multisession dvd?
  2. I upgraded from guarddog 2.4 to 2.5 recently and I got a similar problem. I got both rpm packages from the author's website and I have Mdv2007. All outgoing connections will work but the ports I opened on my machine don't work when I start the ADSL connection. After the adsl connection is up, I have to start guarddog and press the "apply" button before these ports will work. I use rp-pppoe to start my adsl connection. This was not a problem at all in 10.1 The two symlinks kristi mentioned in the previous reply are all present on my machine and point to the correct destination. Any ideas?
  3. Tried it on mandriva but I get this: $ ld ld: no input files and no a.out file produced. Scarecrow: as you said, the file is a result of a *successful* run of ld. That should occur only if someone successfully compiled a program AFAIK? That brings more questions since I haven't compiled anything since I installed mandriva.
  4. oh :o Now I remember. I often type by mistake ld instead of ls. Gotta try this once I get back to Mandriva. Strange, I tried it on Kubuntu and Suse but they do not create an empty a.out file.
  5. A file called "a.out" appeared on my disk and it should not be there. This is the second time I noted this. Both times I was running amule and a couple of ports were open on my system (for amule). Both times, the size of the file is zero. This makes me believe that my computer was compromised and someone tried to compile a program on it. However, I wonder why the file was left in such an obvious place and why its size is zero? After the first time it happened, I upgraded to Mandriva 2007. However, it just happened again. This makes me think that amule is the problem here. I am running version 2.1.3-2. I looked in its changelogs and on the internet but I can't find known vulnerabilities for amule anywhere. I ran chkrootkit and rkhunter but none of them found anything interesting. Nothing worth mentioning in the logs either. Am I just paranoid or is there any other explanations for this? Where should I look next to get more info on what else might have been done on the machine? Thanks
  6. I have a couple issues with guarddog 2.4. I got the version from the author's website (guarddog-2.4.0-2mdk.i586.rpm) since there was a post here that the urpmi version lacks 2 files. First, after a reboot, all the ports I opened previously (connection from Internet to my computer) are put into stealth mode. However, the protocols from my machine to the net are remembered correctly. I have to run guarddog and click on the "apply" button after each reboot. My security level in the control center is the default. This brings us to the next problem. It appears that after I run guarddog, the filesystems in /mnt are unmounted. These get unmounted randomly later, even after I run this as root: mount -a I don't see how these two are related but this is the only reason I observed for the random unmount.
  7. Can you post some details about your system? version of mandriva, k3b, and maybe hardware too. Does this mean you cannot find the newly added files at all?
  8. You can try to upgrade these applications to versions that work with wxGTK2.8. Of course, this is only an option if it doesn't involve a long string of broken dependencies.
  9. Thanks for the replies. I have removed the previous versions and installed the following packages from cooker: amule-2.1.3-3plf2007.1 libwxgtku2.8-2.8.0-1mdv2007.1 wxgtk2.8-2.8.0-1mdv2007.1 I have not seen any crashes since then. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
  10. amule-2.1.3-2plf2007.0 crashes regularly on my comp (Mandriva 2007). It happens when I close some result tabs in the search window. (but not every time I close a result tab) This is the error I get in the console: Gtk-ERROR **: file ../../gtk/gtkcontainer.c: line 2447 (gtk_container_propagate_expose): assertion failed: (child->parent == GTK_WIDGET (container)) aborting... Aborted I suspect it's because I "Use my KDE style in GTK applications" I'd ask on the amule board but it's down.... I wanted to see if anyone else have the same settings and noticed this problem?
  11. This might mean that FSCK was not able to correct all errors on your disk. Try to rename the following folders in your home directory: .acrobat (rename to .acrobat.old) .adobe (rename to .adobe.old) See if that solves your problem. If it still does not work after that, try this from the console as root: rpm -Va See if there are any interesting errors/warnings, like missing files or broken dependencies.
  12. I think this is a problem with the gnome libraries as the segfaults happen with gtk programs. Probably a missing library Are you using Gnome? I concur with the previous responses: First run easy-urpmi. This will configure the sources from where you get your updates. A link was given in a previous post. It does not require the gui so it should work. The required sources are "main" and "main_updates". The others are facultative (for now). Then run from the command line: urpmi --auto-select This should detect any unsatisfied dependencies etc. and suggest to fix those. I'm not sure its because of old config files in the home directory :unsure: . I upgraded from 10.1 to 2007 and got nothing as serious as segfaults.
  13. Where did you get the rpm package from? Is it the rpm from the Adobe website? Greg2: make uninstall would not work because Adobe acrobat is not an open source application and you cannot install it from sources. The tarball you get from their website actually contains binaries and an installation script. Hirohitosan: This is from the ReadMe file in the tarball for Adobe reader 7:
  14. The message regarding newline is a warning. You can ignore it because the compiler will usually continue and produce an executable. However errors will prevent a program from compiling. Error messages are usually in red if you have gcc-color installed.
  15. Thanks all for the reply. Just did chmod -x on the executable and it stopped loading at boot. Haven't noticed a problem yet. Whatever task it was meant for, it must not have been that important. It is just annoying that so many packages depend on it, given that I wasn't a huge fan of fam either.
