Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path

This is a bug. It happens when you create a bootable USB stick with an older version of Ubuntu than the version being installed on the USB stick.

Although the answer selected by the person who asked the question works to get around the issue it does not fix it as you have to do it every time you boot the USB stick.

To fix the USB installation so you do not have to type live and hit Enter every time you want to use it to live boot:

In the boot: prompt after you hit the error above, type live and press Enter, to start the Live USB session.

Open a terminal (e.g. with Ctrl+Alt+t) and type each command line below one by one:

sudo -i apt-get update apt-get install syslinux mount | grep cdrom

The last command above tells you to which device your bootable USB is on.

Important! replace in the command below in the terminal with the device in the output of the last command above. Which will be something like /dev/sdb1

syslinux

I created a bootable thumb drive from kubuntu-15.04-beta1-desktop-amd64.iso (using usb-creator-gtk on an Ubuntu 14.04.2 system) and used it to boot an HP EliteBook 8440p.

The HP displayed the message
Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path
and then repeatedly displayed
gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image
boot:

I entered the command "help", and then Enter after the help menu displayed. This lead to successful a start-up.

Im trying to boot ubuntu 14.10-server-i386 in a pendrive.

But im getting this error when boot from pendrive.

Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path

What does it mean? How to overcome that?

After the error message, try hitting Tab, type in live and hit Enter. This should get you to the Ubuntu desktop from where you can use the Install icon to go forward with the installation.

Hello,

I'm trying to use the Xen tech preview by following this tutorial
http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Ceph_and_libvirt_technology_preview

Except a problem when configuring the network and another problem in
the grub.conf that was generated by the xenserver-install-wizard
everything seems OK: I can use the CLI and I can connect to the server
from the xencenter.

A problem occurred when I tried to create a PV guest. I'm using the
ubuntu template but when I want to choose a storage I have a message
"There are no SR locations that can support this disk". Here is the
list of SR:

I’d recently made a bunch of changes to my company’s server build scripts, making changes that automatically generate system builds for a variety of operating systems and CPU architectures. We use PXE Boot to boot servers, then install images from a central install server which is running OpenSUSE 11.1.

After I made the changes I started seeing the error message “Missing parameter in config file” at boot:

You dont have to use SET. Instead you can do that using DTExec.exe /CONFIG parameter as below:

SQL Agent Job --> Steps --> General --> Type (Operating System(CmdExec)) ---> command

"Drive\Microsoft SQL Server\110\DTS\Binn\DTExec.exe" /FILE "D:\SSIS\SSIS_PackageName.dtsx" /DECRYPT "STRONG_PASSWORD" /CONFIGFILE "D:\SSIS\CONFIG_FILE_PATH.dtsConfig" /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING E

EDIT: Below is an excerpt from msdn

/Conf[igFile] filespec (Optional). Specifies a configuration file to extract values from. Using this option, you can set a run-time configuration that differs from the configuration that was specified at design time for the package. You can store different configuration settings in an XML configuration file and then load the settings before package execution by using the /ConfigFile option. You can use the /ConfigFile option to load additional configurations at run time that you did not specify at design time. However, you cannot use the /ConfigFile...

To pass a directory to a windows batch file you put it on the command line of the batch file. When working with paths it is a good thing to put "" around them as they may contain spaces etc e.g.

c:\temp\batchfile.bat "c:\program files"

to reference the command line arguments in your batch file use %1 %2 and so on.

If for example you had a simple batch file (c:\temp\b.bat) like this

dir %1 exit /b 3

and you called it as above, you would get a directory listing of c:\program files.

I'm going to guess now that what you want to do is pass a windows path to a unix script and then get the unix script to run a batch file on windows and pass the windows path supplied to the windows batch file.

Similarly to windows you pass the arguments to a bash script on the command line. You need to enclose the path in "". bash will attempt to interpret any special characters in your command line arguments so you need to enclose the path argument in '' too e.g.

Hello,
I have been investigating in this issue since I stumbled upon the problem: proxies are being passed just fine in 'selenium' mode, but not in 'http' mode.

It turns out, if I ain't wrong, that proxies are just never passed in requests in http mode at all!

Actually this also caused me some problems with the proxy table of the database when calling the proxy_check function. It was updating different values for the hostname than the one provided from my proxy file: indeed, it was pulling my own ip and trying to replace the proxy ip who should normally have been used!

This is the code in the proxy_check() function:

def proxy_check(self, proxy): assert self.proxy and self.requests, 'ScraperWorker needs valid proxy instance and requests library to make ' \ 'the proxy check.' online = False status = 'Proxy check failed: {host}:{port} is not used while requesting'.format(host=self.proxy.host, port=self.proxy.port) ...

Please note, this has been solved by clearing caches in intelliJ. All the code was correct, just an invalid state had been cached in the IDE.

This is driving me crazy. We're using struts 1, fyi.

My struts config file is called struts-config-mexp.xml. I have configured web.xml to point to the file in WEB-INF/struts dir, like so:

ServicesManagerServlet com.pronto.common.manager.ServicesManagerServlet 1 action org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet config /WEB-INF/struts/struts-config-mexp.xml debug 2 detail 2 2

The file is definitely in the struts dir under WEB-INF. Here's part of the dir structure:

src/ main/ java/ resources/ webroot/ WEB-INF/ struts/ struts-config-mexp.xml web.xml

I've tried moving the file to other locations (and changing the location in web.xml), e.g., in src/main/resources, but no matter where I put it I get this failure.
