Subject: GRUB problem
Date: Monday, July 4, 2011, 4:22 AM
I’m having problems with booting Fedora 14 X64 after I clone the hard disk with Clonezilla.
Disk imaging goes nices until it reaches the end, when it tries to reinstall GRUB on the target hard disk. It hangs, but I can boot that disk one time. Once the machine is restarted, I lose the boot loader.
Tried to repair it through Fedora Live CD following this guide - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=845741 -, but it hangs on “GRUB Loading, please wait…”.
Any ideas on why is this happening?
Assistente Técnico / Technical Assistant
This is a bug with clonezilla since it uses grub 2 from debian testing:
to remedy the problem you may use older version(s) of clonezilla or use alternative cd.

Looking to buy a new laptop. This does not happen often. 2 laptops in 10
Say processor speed about 2 gig. There is a lot of variations.
Version i3 or i5 or i7.
Now there is AMD and Intel.
Would like to buy the best for my budget.
Kindly some pointers please.
Looking around to buy a new laptop.
Now I see some conflicting opinions on the lists between Nvidia and ATI.
Will be using Fedora and Ubuntu latest versions.
Now I am confused.
Kindly some advice please.

Thanks to all that responded.
I will test drive with live cd's at the shops.
I am sorry if this question was asked before,
but I was wondering why is it, that most app-
lication's main window do not restore it's
last save-data the next time it is opened?
What I am talking about is window position
and size data, but not limited to these only.
How many times does an application have to be
repositioned & resized every time it is opened?
We do have a startup session save for apps
that supports session-saves, and restores
saved apps to its last position, size, & workspace
locations. (BTW, as of F13, session-saves do not
work well.) In any case, session-saves are for
applications that will be restored when a new
session is opened. But this is a different application
for a specific purpose.
If I am not being clear, let me try to explain.
Let's take an application such as Totem.
Now if one opens Totem, one notes that this app
positions itself at the top-left corner with a rather
large window size. Annoyed, totem is repositioned,
resized for viewing pleasure. Now, I am done with
totem, I closed it. Later in time, I decided to open
Totem again, and the behaviour is exactly the same
as before, top-left and a large window size. Drat!
If there was window-app save-data, the next time
Totem opened, apps window would obtain the save-
data and reposition and resize the app is exactly as
it was the last time it was opened.
Further, is there a Gnome application design framework,
that includes built-in support for application save-data
which include things as position, size, workspace location
session-save hooks, and any window specific save-data
so that designers will automatically have this code when
developing new windows applications? (Yeah, dream on?)
It would also be nice if this was standardized, so that a
Desktop configuration tool would recognize these apps
and allow for Global & User property changes saved
either in the the global or user's (~/.config "database")
or whatever is appropriate.
Hi, I'm going to give you some quick context:
Last week I went to a "Startup Weekend" Event in Guadalajara, Jalisco,
(My county is Mexico) and I live in Mexico City. Usually I use Desktop
machines, in fact, I ONLY own one computer and it's a Desktop (F15 KDE 64
And it has never gave me problems before, I can pacefully work at home, at
work, at school with desktop computers as many things I use are on the cloud
and all the machines I use in my diary life have mostly the same setup
Configs and other things, such as Fedore as the primary O.S. and Windows
BUT for this event I had to ask for a borrowed laptop as I don't have one.
The thing is
I usually work in Fedora Linux and in Windows VM inside of Fedora Linux
of Dreamweaver CS5, that is my main web development production app, also I
Windows VM's to check's IE compatibility, and some Corel and Ulead Programs.
As a Matter of fact, I CAN'T work in a PC where I only have Windows or where
have Linux, (or with dual-boot) I'm used to use both O.S. at the same time,
one with the other, Linux as the MAIN O.S and Windows in a VM...
The laptop I got only had F14 ans it wasn't powerful enough to create a VM,
won't run Dreamweaver CS5 or most of the windows tools I need to work
and I felt "inproductive" in some way at the event.
MY QUESTION IS:
As maybe I can't run a VM in all the computers that I might have access to
and because Wine Can't Emulate some programs correctly, I Know the solution
is using the cloud to carry my apps with me, I was wondering if there is a
(Better if it's opensource) to run my Windows apps from the server
in my Linux Machines or if I can mount a server with free/opensource
technologies that give me that option.
I don't intend for a enterprise enviroment, something personal
where I can virtualize at much 5 apps for my personal use
in the cloud...
is it possible? What should I use?

Sam, you are right, I had badly misinterpreted.
Your suggested test convinced me.
I rebooted out of my backupf14 into my mainf14.
backupf14 now shows no /.autofcsk
completely in accord with what you said.

I had already seen this. Nothing in there is consistent with my case.
My reboots look normal, so system should erase ./autofsck, but it doesnt.
There is no fsck activity during the boot at least none I can see.
I used,once, 'touch /forcefsck', which did do the fsck, no errors,
