General :: Failure To Complete Installation Of 10.40.1
Sep 11, 2010
.After trying to instal 10.40 as a "guest" of Windows7 in its own partition on drive D I got all the way thru then re-booted to finish the install as requested. At that point after reboot I selected Ubuntu from the boot menu then it hung up after quickly displaying and overwriting some option numbers - probably for GRUB
I uninstalled 10.40 then tried Ubuntu 9.4. It worked better and gave me an option menu after the install reboot. If I chose "normal" it also hung up.I was succesful by chosing one of the other GRUB choices that it gave me.Now everything works but with an older version.
I've tried about a billion times to get this to install correctly to no avail. This is the amd64 desktop edition, but I've tried with the 32 bit as well. I have a lenovo W500. The system never boots off the USB. It gets through a bit, with text output, and then stops. Sometimes it doesn't even give an error message, and other times I get something like udev failed while loading some pci device. I've tried re-downloading the iso several times, different USB keys, different USB key creators, CDs, to no avail.
I then thought, well, heck with it, I'll just install 10.10 and upgrade. Nope, there's a GPG key error for some bizarre reason, which is tripping up apt, but it's not going to tell me what key that is so I can go and get it (and apt-key update does nothing). Command line upgrades fail similarly. So finally, I go for broke and try to just install the thing with Wubi. Of course, that eventually crashes too.
I get a complete system failure when my CPU is stressed. It's not the temperature because when it crashes the CPU temp is only ~55 C. When it crashes the video freezes but the sound repeats itself. Example. I start handbraking a movie, then open a tv show in VLC. This is what I hear.
Did you get that tire - then it freezes
get that tire get that tire get that tire get that tire ... etc
That continues until I reboot my computer. This crash is pretty reliable, as every time I load my CPU that happens. If I don't do anything CPU intensive, I don't get the crash. Also, if I only load up one core of my CPU, then everything is fine. However if I run something such as prime95 or handbrake (which both utilize all 4 of my cores) the computer will crash within 30 seconds.

I have installed ubuntu 9.10 with karmic kernel and GNOME, on toshiba 512 MB RAm laptop. it worked fine but some times after complete shut down or sleep, it wont boot again. Laptop is completely dead and silent. I had to power it off, battery taken out and inserted again to get it started again. Then it worked all normal and fine. Why it happens and what i shud do next?
latest update to 11.3 a complete failure afterwards on reboot I'm instructed that I must first install kernel and to strike any key to exit which return me to grub menu. thats it for me and Osuse. 11.3 has been one bug after another and to much for me overcome. I will return once a day to see if anyone can fix this/
I've spent some time searching for answers to this and I haven't found much at all.Please feel free to post pointers to other threads that discuss this particular problem, if you find any.The problem is that in bash I want to mount an iso file to inspect the contents with the command:Code:sudo mount myCD.iso CDMount -o loopThe command works fine, but pressing tab to complete either the iso filename or the CDMount directory does not work. The completion suggestions I get are existing mountpoints which The completion suggestions should include the files and directories in the current directory. This worked with Ubuntu 10.04 and not with 11.04.
I have been researching the web for a program which will allow me to backup my entire hard drive so that I can restore my system if need be. I am however unsure which is the best one to use if I want to achieve this:Somehow I want to back up my hard drive containing my ubuntu system byte for byte so that if the hard drive were to fail I could simply go to the store, get a new hard drive, restore my backup and be up and running again without having to do any re installments of ubuntu or any other programs for that matter.
What is the easiest program that does this? I would like it to support incremental backup.rsync with the "Back in Time interface"?bacula?
No wonder my network-career is not getting in the mood... always other trouble.
Thing is: reboot and ended with a black screen: "no video available". i hit the reboot button. same result. I just, today, added a new DVD/Read-Write, so i have assumed thats the problem. Unplugged it: same problem. Nothing, not even the BIOS-display.
As i once started a PC without keyboard connected i did remember that that doesn't work (if i recall correct it gave me some beeps, today nothing like a beep). I replaced the keyboard and could boot.
But i don't trust this result. If someone might give an experienced opinion i would be very glad (i got several pc's, but this one is the only one which is really usuable, though its still a 200€ one, but it does all i need).
I've recently got myself a new laptop which I would like to install the Linux Mint 10. But there's some problems with the installaton. Just when it's about to wrap up it stalls and I can't proceed and complete the installation.
i am having a problem installing ubuntu 10.10. i had windows vista and used ubuntu inside windows with no problem. then, i wanted to reset my vista to its factory conditions (just to clean up space and get rid of hidden or unnecessary things) using the recovery disk - and the recovery disk partially worked, removed my os and didn't 'restore' anything. so i decided to just go all the way to ubuntu anyway, which was the plan all along, just sooner now.
i have the disk and i can easily make it to the 'try ubuntu' feature. however, when i try to actually install ubuntu, i make it all the way to the 'who are you page?' but the 'forward' button isn't accessible (which is how i noticed something might be wrong). this happens whether i try to install after trying ubuntu or if i try to direcly install without trying it first. i fill in the data, the installation says it's copying files, etc... and then, when it's done, it says 'ready when you are'. that's it. i can't click on 'forward', and none of the 'information about ubuntu' features and pics scroll by while the setup is taking place. i can't do anything at this point. the system isn't really frozen but it just does nothing. (i thought i might have to restart the computer but the only options i have are 'hibernate' and 'suspend'. also, once i manually restart everything it reloads all over again. when i take the disk out and restart, i see NOTHING. the vaio logo comes on, then the screen goes black and i see the cursor prompt but nothing else at all and i can't do anything at all.
I am a windows user personally, but my daughter has got a Elonex Onet+ machine, which I understand uses Linux. I have tried googling this information but I am really struggling.Apparently it is either debian or mipsel (2 different webpages say two different things) and as I am not familiar with Linux at all I don't know how to find out from the machine itself.The problem I am having is needing to update pidgin, the pre installed version will not connect to MSN, something regarding protocol, so I downloaded the most recent version of pidgin (2.7.3) from the site but cannot figure out how to install it (I am only used to windows machines)
I am trying to install SuSe 9.3 from a Live CD onto an old laptop, and the base installation completes but the boot does not finish. It stops at the following:
Waiting for device /dev/hdc5 to appear: ......resume device /dev/hdc5 not found (ignoring) Loading kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko Waiting for device /dev/hdc1 to appear: ...... not found -- exiting to /bin/sh sh: can't access tty; job control turned off $ Hardware is: Sony Vaio PCG FX205K, 128Mb RAM, 850MhZ, 20G Hard drive.
i have a dell inspiron laptop lap top with windows7 os.my hardisk is 320gb capacity.now i want to install fedora as my secondary os. I tried fedora12 but instaltion terminated abnormally with the message safe reboot needed recievied signal 3. i have 20 gb unallocated space in my disk.
I am running Fedora 8. Each time I run a YUM command, I get the message that there are unfinished transactions, and to run yum-complete-transaction. Upon running yum-complete-transaction, it fails with this error. How can I remove this uncompleted transaction so I can finish the last one?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed in my laptop through a windows installation and I want to make a new, complete, install so I can boot directly in Ubuntu (and change some configuration choices I didn't get right in the first place). Is there any (as simple as posible) way to save my actual data (users, software installed, personal files...) as a whole so I can "install" all that back to the "new" Ubuntu installation?
I ran Ubuntu 9.10 back in the days and when 10.04 Beta 1 was released I upgraded it by using the update-manager -d. My question is, if I use the upgrade-manager -d feature will it be like an actual beta 2 when it gets released and later on will it be the same as the full final version. Or must I do a complete re-installation if I want to run the final version of 10.04?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a computer that's already running Windows Vista. I used the Wubi installer and it seemed to go through the installation fine (using the desktop, amd64 iso file). After rebooting, I get the dual boot option. However, on Ubuntu start-up, I get a display with the message stating Verifying Installation Files. It seems to go through some verification, but then it gets stuck. I see a bunch of lines with the words "ubuntu ubiquity" with hexadecimal values and regular words. The last hexadecimal values to appear are: 7f2698c50d8e, 7f2698fca815; the last regular word is "_target".
If I quit out of the verification, I am able to get onto the desktop area, but a message appears stating a parted_server crash occured. Also, my wireless connection doesn't work, but I suspect I need to install a driver.
The problem is that it has no way to connect to the net because it has no lan card.I was thinking of installing Mint or Ubuntu since he just needs it only for Word & Spreadsheet stuffs.I was thinking of cloning my own Mint on a USB pen drive and dump it on his HD.
How can I be sure to complete the update? Updating from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS with some 'stop' new kernel not in use, and grub setup, using 'local' the now new 10.04 LTS as it calls itself is loading and large parts working.
After I downloaded and installed the software "Aircrack" from the Synaptic Package Manager and restarted the PC, I still could not find Aircrack under Application or System. Can anyone advise me if I need to do more to complete the installation of Aircrack?
Looks like I waited too long to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. Now the Update Manager wants to take my system to 10.04, but then says it is 'not supported with this tool'.Do I need to do a complete re-install of the OS? Is there a reasonable way to get to 9.10 without a complete re-install?
Decided to upgrade my 8.04 server to 10.04 today. Everything went smooth when I tried to install in vmware. When I tried to install it on my real machine the installation hangs at 74% Storing Language...
I've checked the disk and I tried different ways to install (different language, both keyboard and system). The first two attempts the installer just turns off and the computer reboots. This third time it just hangs. how to debug and solve this problem?
It's the x86_64 version. I'm using the standard options all the time including LVM on whole disk.
I am trying to move my installation from my wubi drive to another drive, i use LVPM, but the listed partitions in LVPM, doesnt mention which partition is which , the available space in each partition is not listed, there are 5 partition in the MOVE section in LVPM, any clues of how to find out which is which, please urgent help, performance is not perfect with the WUBI installation.
