General :: How To Delete Extra Kernel Lists At Boot Of MDV 2010

Feb 4, 2010

After upgrade from MDV 2009.1 to MDV 2010 a bunch of available kernels that can be selected are listed at boot. I think that these are still installed but I really don't need them listed. I would like to get rid of the list of extras. I've had a look at /boot/grub but I can't figure out what.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic After Update/upgrade 22-09-2010

Sep 23, 2010

Yesterday i was prompted by my update manager to update some packages. I really don't remember which but i updated.

After reboot the box now kernel panics. I don't believe i get a ubuntu splash screen, and at this point i can't figure out how to get to my grub, in case a kernel was upgraded and it's possible to boot to different kernel.

i noticed some words like 'mantis', 'oops' and 'dvb_core' was a part of the text i get on the screen.

Can this be because of a dvb* upgrade that breaks something important ?

If needed, i should be able to boot via liveCD, or i could take a picture of the errors.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - 2010 New Mac Mini Dual Boot OS X 10.6

Jun 16, 2010

The new Mac Mini has just been refreshed. I'm thinking of getting one as a general admin machine, as they run very quietly. I'd like to able to dual boot it with Ubuntu 10.04 and I have a few questions. The hard-drive is 350gb. Would it be possible to dual boot with OSX on two fairly small partitions, say 50gb for each OS. Leaving a remaining partition of around 250gb to keep files on for both OSX and Ubuntu? I've read about this for windows/ubuntu dual boots, but can't seem to find much on OSX/Ubuntu dual boots and whether you can share files easily between them and having common drives for data storage. Also, general tips on dual booting a Mac Mini with Ubuntu 10.04 would be welcome (not a lot out there that I can find).

Fedora :: Can't Boot Windows Anymore - Grub Only Lists

Jul 25, 2010

I'm using a dual boot system with Fedora and Windows XP. Until a few days ago i could boot in Windows or Linux choosing the option during boot. I have updated Fedora with common updates these days and now i can't boot in Windows anymore, because there are no entry for it anymore to the boot menu.

The graphical boot configuration tool (i'm using Gnome) only lists three different kernel for Fedora but any entry for a Windows partition. Here is how my disk appears:

I'd like to know why this occur and, mostly, which is the most easy way to restore the dual boot

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Alternates Between 2 Boot Lists

Jun 14, 2010

My system had a dual boot with Karmic & Windows. On Saturday I installed Lucid. Now Grub sometimes shows a list with Lucid, Windows & Karmic. More often it shows the old bootlist with Karmic & Windows, so I cannot boot Lucid. I have been unable to detect any logic as to when it shows one list rather than the other. The machine is a Sony E series preinstalled with Windows 7. I was (& still often am !!!) using Karmic 64 bit.

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.10 And 10.04 Won't Boot On Mac Mini (mid-2010 Model)

Mar 10, 2011

I've been attempting to boot Ubuntu on my Mac Mini with absolutely no success. I tried 32-bit and 64-bit versions of 10.10 and 10.04. In all cases, I see the little keyboard and man at the bottom of the screen and then the screen goes black (i.e. my monitor stops receiving input).

My monitor is connect via the HDMI-to-DVI convertor, so is this a driver issue related to that?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Mac Mini 2010 Blank Screen On 10.10 & 9.04 CD Boot?

Nov 25, 2010

I just purchased a new Mac Mini 2010 to replace my older Mac Mini 2006 Intel. The problem I am having is that when I boot Ubuntu from the MM 2010 CD-ROM the initial menu that allows you to select a language is displayed, but after that the screen goes blank and stays blank. I am using the HDMI port to DVI output and I am wonder if that could be a cause of the blank screen. Is there a boot command that I can use to allow Ubuntu to display with the HDMI port or other item I need to fix to get Ubuntu CD installer video display to work with my MM 2010?

OpenSUSE :: What Exactly Is The Extra Repository /repositories/KDE:/Extra

Jul 18, 2010

there are 2 related to 11.3: openSUSE_11.3/ and openSUSE_11.3_KDE_Distro_Factory/ Index of /repositories/KDE:/Extra they are not listed as official kde4 repos here KDE repositories - openSUSE, but they are in the same directory structure on the build service so it would assume they are official (what ever official means) They have rpm's I didn't see in community and playground (at least for 11.3) such as audex and clementine I would guess that they are for the stable and factory versions of KDE4 but then shouldn't there be a 3rd for unstable if this was the case? Or do they refer to the distro, 11.3 stable and 11.3 factory

Ubuntu :: Making Extra Boot Log References?

Feb 3, 2011

I have 10.10 64-bit on a Fujitsu T900. the hard drive has windows seven as well (64-bit). The win7 is the orginal from the manufacture. the boot log originally had (in this order): Win7, Windows Vista (about 100 MB not sure why but can't remove), recovery partition. I put ubuntu on after those three. Some times when the computer goes into suspend mode from ubuntu it will not wake up after wards. the only option it to power i down manually. when it comes back up there is now a second reference to ubuntu in the boot log. this has happened several times. there are now four valid references to ubuntu in the boot loader. I need to remove three of them, but i'm concerned that removing them will compromise ubuntu. Also I'm not sure where the boo log in windows seven is.

Slackware :: No Way To Enter Extra Boot Options

Mar 11, 2011

I used btrfs, but my Slackware root is really a subvolume named system and not the root of btrfs. I do a similar setup of having the OS's root in it's own filesystem on FreeBSD+ZFS.Anyways, my problem lies in mkinitrd. There's no way to enter extra boot options, as I require subvol=system to be added to mount -o ro -t $ROOTFS $ROOTDEV / the init script of /boot/initrd.gz. I don't reboot often and it's easy to manually remount /mnt with the correct options, however, is there another way of passing boot options to mkinitrd?

I see Patrick is the author of mkinitrd, so maybe this kind of option could, or maybe should, be added? I'm sure most people wouldn't make a subvolume for the OS's root, but I've been use to it with ZFS and prefer it for some reason.
