Issues with RAID
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 1, 2014
I'm seeing some strange issues with my Ubuntu machine. I have several raid arrays, two RAID 1s and one RAID 5. Recently it has been booting in degraded mode, why I'm not sure. Each time I use mdadm to add the partition back to the array. This seems to work until I reboot when it is degraded again. I'm wondering if there is some step I'm missing after I get the array back up and running? Perhaps my mdadm.conf file is corrupted?
But the scariest thing I've noticed is files go missing that are more recent. I don't understand why this would be. The files I'm missing are on the RAID 1 array so both disks should be an exact copy right? If I have one I should have all files right? But for some reason some are missing. I readd the missing disk to the array and it rebuilds it, I have a lost any chance of saving those files?
Thanks in advance.
Issues with Fedora, cannot boot. File system check fails, no shell starts.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 19, 2009
Using Fedora 12 with latest updates. In fact, I guess that the problem came with the update from this morning or one from yesterday, since I hadn't turned it off since then.
On start, an error is displayed telling me that the file system check failed and mentions that I will get a shell access and that it will restart after shell exits. The thing is, that I get a message asking me for either the login or to press ctrl+D, but neither work. If I press ctrl+D, it will send the same prompt again and if I press any verbose key (that is, excluding "alt", "ctrl" and those) it will automatically send the same prompt again. So, I can't use ctrl+D or try to write the login.
I decided to use an Ubuntu LiveCD (Jaunty) that I kept saved.
Started Ubuntu, installed the package lvm2. This is because Fedora is installed in a lvm partition.
Dual Boot issues with Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2014
I have a 160gb hard drive and partitioned off 75gb for Ubuntu. When I restart my computer I don't have the Windows XP option on the Grub menu. When I go into System Monitor it shows me that only 75gb are set aside for /dev/sda1. I ran the os-prober and got the following results.

Two issues with Fedora Core 2 32bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 5, 2012
One of our workstations is running the Fedora Core 2 32-bit distribution, and has two issues.
The first issue has to do with the splash screen, or window, that appears after the user logs into the system, and displays the services that are being loaded for use. The window does not automatically disappear, but requires the user to left click on it in order for it to be removed from the desktop.
The second issue concerns logging out of the workstation. There is a significant delay, approximately two minutes, between the time the user clicks on the Fedora icon on the toolbar and when the logout window appears on-screen.
The common denominator in both issues is the user account being NIS, or domain, as opposed to local. Has anyone seen these situations, and know what can be done to correct them?
Installing Citrix Receiver for Linux issues with dependencies
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 2, 2013
I'm a Windows infrastructure engineer but a complete Linux newbie.
I have a requirement to install the Citrix Receiver client on RHEL 5.9 Workstation (i386, 32 bit).
The package requires openmotif 2.3.1.
As far as I can tell the correct openmotif package for this os would be openmotif 2.3.1-6.1.el5_8.i386?
From what I can tell, .rpm files seem to be self-extracting / installing packages? Since this seems to be the easiest way to install things onto the Linux os (Lord knows what a .tar is), I have downloaded the .rpm for the above version of openmotif.
However, the installation fails for want of libxp.so.6.
Is anyone able to advise me how to obtain and install libxp.so.6 for the above version of RHEL workstation?
I have quite quickly exhaused the limits of my ability to research this issue online. I am too ignorant of basic Linux terms and I find it hard to understand when different flavours of Linux other then RHEL are being referred to.
Issues with multiple data types (C/C++)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 15, 2005
Okay here's the deal. In our application, I implement various different libraries, each which like to use their own datatypes. (SDL, OpenGL, and OpenAL are the big three). In addition to that, our application defines its own types, which are nothing more than #define wrappers around the SDL types (we didn't like the naming scheme of the SDL types). So my question here is how do we make all these types friendly with each other?
For example, I want to assign a float to a ALfloat (OpenAL's float) and vice-versa. Do I need to do explicit static_cast calls for each type conversion to eliminate warnings, or is there another trick that we could use with the C preprocessor? (Because there would be A LOT of casting that needs to be done otherwise!).
Also are there any issues we should worry about with word size? All of the standard integer types we use in our app are suffixed with 8, 16, or 32 to define the bit-size, but if I want to assign a Alint (OpenAL's integer) to a uint8, int
