Google Chrome = Netflix + Google Earth
No Google Chrome = none of them
Trying to open my Netflix account wtih Chromium, my default browser (with XFCE as browser) I get this message :
Nous ne trouvons pas les bons composants pour visionner Netflix sur cet appareil. Veuillez visiter chrome://components, localisez le composant WidevineCdm, puis cliquez sur le bouton « Vérifier les mises à jour ». Code d'erreur : M7701-1003
It says I have to search a component named WidevineCdm and update it.
I have visited chrome://components. BUT there was no WidevineCdm component included in the list.
So … What’s the trick ? … What am I supposed to do ? … Give it up ? … Forget Netflix ?
@joekamprad It’s Terrs who knows in which measure his tip makes sense. I don’t think either it does.
With my XFCE interface (I thought I would have something similar as XFCE as I had it under Linux Fedora) I don’t see a way of configuring languages and so ever.
I will stick to the system the way it was installed. Anyway if it’s risky to declare locale in spanish I won’t take a chance, so I will just keep it in french. I am bilingual.
To see the physical volumes that are in my USB Key (currently at /dev/sdc), instead of opening a partition manager (like the default one : Gparted) I can launch this command : parted … print. It gives me this :
[[email protected] mnt]# parted /dev/sdc print Modèle: Generic Flash Disk (scsi) Disque /dev/sdc : 31,0GB Taille des secteurs (logiques/physiques): 512B/512B Table de partitions : gpt Disk Flags: Numéro Début Fin Taille Système de fichiers Nom Fanions 1 1049kB 1000MB 999MB info 2 1000MB 11,0GB 9999MB part01 3 11,0GB 21,0GB 10,0GB part02 4 21,0GB 30,0GB 9000MB parti03 5 30,0GB 31,0GB 1037MB derniere
One of the physical volumes has an “unknown” name. It should be /dev/sdc3 but it’s just “unknown”.
This shows up when typing this command :
[[email protected] mnt]# vgdisplay -v WARNING: Device for PV 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT not found or rejected by a filter. Couldn't find device with uuid 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT. There are 1 physical volumes missing. SAME DISPLAY AS WITH LVDISPLAY. Then : --- Physical volumes --- PV Name /dev/sdc2 PV UUID ZzRr4U-Pyyx-jQ44-Neu8-Ntz6-85Ne-3XG1A1 PV Status allocatable Total PE / Free PE 2383 / 0 PV Name [unknown] PV UUID 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT PV Status allocatable Total PE / Free PE 2384 / 0 PV Name /dev/sdc4 PV UUID mbcmGr-myIS-WJdb-773J-yFx9-WuHJ-S9S7du PV Status allocatable Total PE / Free PE 2145 / 0 PV Name /dev/sdc1 PV UUID mXcwc3-R5Mf-xV5w-I2Pl-lDNc-RAZP-tgusVq PV Status allocatable Total PE / Free PE 238 / 46 PV Name /dev/sdc5 PV UUID jaczWu-S93U-WiXa-WqpG-TSXy-PjrG-wDMIjU PV Status allocatable Total PE / Free PE 247 / 247
The unknown physical volume whose UUID begins with 4Nzm45 is the one that appears in the warnings.
Attempting to find reasons why it fails, I have opened Gparted.
Gparted does not give a view on the logical volumes, but shows the underlying physical volumes.
There are several physical volumes that were altogether merged into one volume group, that I named VGcle (“the volume group that is in my key”).
I have installed a more powerful tool : the KDE partition manager.
It gives more details. We can see how are the logical volumes.
Two of the logical volumes are jfs, the other one (the most important : home) is “unknown”.
Is there a problem with the jfs format ?
So … I started with the lvdisplay command. As yesterday it gave me :
[[email protected] ~]# lvdisplay WARNING: Device for PV 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT not found or rejected by a filter.

Then I did, as you asked, a vgscan that gave this :
[[email protected] ~]# vgscan Reading volume groups from cache. WARNING: Device for PV 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT not found or rejected by a filter. Couldn't find device with uuid 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT.

I launched the vgchange -ay command, as you said. It gave this :
[[email protected] mnt]# vgchange -ay VGcle WARNING: Device for PV 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT not found or rejected by a filter. Couldn't find device with uuid 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT. Refusing activation of partial LV VGcle/LVhome. Use '--activationmode partial' to override. 2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VGcle" now active
LVhome is the biggest and most important logical volume.
I launched then this :
[[email protected] mnt]# vgchange -ay --activationmode partial VGcle PARTIAL MODE. Incomplete logical volumes will be processed. WARNING: Device for PV 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT not found or rejected by a filter. Couldn't find device with uuid 4Nzm45-1qmg-1r8m-wMVl-0Igs-v402-zFA3yT. 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "VGcle" now active
Big relief : there are 3 active logical volumes in that USB Key, and all of them are active. Let’s use them ? but it failed :
[[email protected] mnt]# mkdir LVracine [[email protected] mnt]# mount /dev/VGcle/LVracine /mnt/LVracine mount: /mnt/LVracine : mauvais type de système de fichiers, option erronée, superbloc erroné sur /dev/mapper/VGcle-LVracine, page de code ou programme auxiliaire manquant, ou autre erreur.
There’s either a bad format or … something else.
I am new. I have recently installed Antergos, some days ago.
I’m now trying to use a USB Key where files from my previous computer.
There are two issues involved :
- one that you guys here will not deal with, as it’s another distribution (Linux Rosa) that is involved : that old computer has become autistic, does not want to recognize either internet or a USB Key;
- the USB Key is one that I have used a couple of weeks ago, experimenting logical volumes. I used to have that USB Key permanently present, as if it was a part of the hard disk, with three logical volumes, each one mounted in a sub directory at /mnt.
So … On my new laptop I have installed gparted and checked that it can see there are physical volumes on that USB Key … Then I have entered some command lines (logged as root) :
1 lvdisplay 2 cd /mnt 3 mkdir orange 4 cd orange 5 mkdir -p racine/home 6 mkdir -p racine/var 7 mount /dev/VGcle/LVracine /mnt/orange/racine 8 mount LVracine /mnt/orange/racine 9 ls 10 ls racine 11 mount xl8LaN-uP2Y-5YPD-bG00-CcPs-YIet-MMD37k /mnt/orange/racine
In spite of what says lvdisplay - I was then relieved - there’s no way to apply the mount command on a logical volume. Here is the message that I get after command number 7 :
mount /dev/VGcle/LVracine /mnt/orange/racine mount: /mnt/orange/racine : le périphérique spécial /dev/VGcle/LVracine n'existe pas.
Nonetheless “/dev/VGcle/LVracine” is the name of that logical volume, according to lvdisplay.
So … How to mount it ?
After Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and a more marginal one : Rosa, I am now using Antergos …
It looks nice (with XFCE) and there’s a community, which is definitely great.
I like the concept of a “rolling” distribution, Arch. And I appreciate they made it easier with Antergos.
A couple of days ago I bought this new laptop that I am using now with, fully installed, Linux Antergos in its latest version with the XFCE GUI, spanish keyboard, french (belgian) language, Edmonton time. A rather inconsistent mixture but it works.
When I bought I paid an extra 50$ in order to wipe out Windows and get ready the laptop for “something else”. The same day I got back my laptop. It could be used with the DVD in “Live” conditions but the real install failed each time. After advice from karasu I came here to the forum, saw that I was not at all the only one to be stuck in front of a “cannot create download package list metalinkg” error message, and read comments about what was the issue. I did not feel like writing a half dozen command lines so I tried this : declare that the locale is not spanish (my mother language) but belgian french. And then, the install worked.
I am surprised that such a bug keeps existing. The iso file that I was using is recent.
I wonder if spanish speakers were somehow the main victims of this bug. According to my own experience the answer would be yes. Choosing my second main language I have found a solution. For sure not the best one as I will not be able to show this OS to spanish speaking friends and familiars without telling them “well, there was a f… bug that I had to bypass choosing French as my main language”.
