Fedora Installation :: F14 Installation Without Internet Connection - Mouse Stops Clicking

Aug 30, 2010

Sorry title should have been F13 installation without internet I am having a P4, 1GB ram, 80 GB machine. Since yesterday I am having some funny issues on this machine. i have fedora 12 installed on this machine.
My mouse suddenly stop working, or the cursor changes from pointer type to a line cursor and basicaly the mouse just stops clicking. I am plannning to install fedora 13 on this machine. Have downloaded the 5 iso (
CD images).

Would choosing the option upgrade on existing Linux partition do the job? Is there a chance I loose my data files when the upgrade is done? I dont want to reinstall programs like java, eclipse, tomcat etc that I done in fedora 12. I only intend using the CD's as I dont have a lot of bandwidth and a fast internet connection to use yum.

Ubuntu :: The Installation Started, But Then Lost The Internet Connection, And The Installation Stopped?

Dec 17, 2010

I recently bougt an Asus N61DA with Windows 7. I decided to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, so I made the Ubuntu CD, just like it said. Then I inserted the CD and restarted the computer. I started the installer (ubuntu 10.10 64-bit) and chose the option where it says "install ubuntu alongside other operating systems", or something like that. So, the installation started, but then I lost the internet connection, and the installation stopped.I re-connected the computer, but the installation still wouldn't continue. I restarted the computer and then nothing happened. I've restarted it several times, but still nothing happens. I've inserted the Windows recovery CD, but it doesn't work

Mar 26, 2009

I just set up my computer to dual boot Windows XP Home and Fedora 10. After installation, on Windows, the internet works just fine (since I'm able to compose this message). However, the internet connection on Fedora does not work.
Here are the details:

I have an Ethernet cable connecting my modem and PC.
I've tried looking info up online about the issue and many people say to do an ifconfig -a to get the MAC Address and so forth. How to get the connection working to use the internet with Fedora?

Ubuntu Installation :: Zero Internet Connection With 10.10 Via IPv6?

Oct 17, 2010

Luckily I have a second machine running 9.10 and could get onto the net for assistance.

I tried all sorts of modifications to sysctl, modeprobe files, etc and checked all over google for a fix.

It appears that the IPv6 settings are part of the kernel, in this case I am going back to 9.10 and staying with 9.10 until this IPv6 is sorted out. Most home routers do not have IPv6 connections, only IPv4. This lack of Internet connection has happened with both server and desktop. I do not know the reasoning behind this decision but I will not be upgrading to 10 until IPv6 is sorted for me as a home user.

Able to boot with different partitions of a 320 GB hard drive with Windows Server 2008, Ubuntu server 9.10 plus Ubuntu desktop 9.10 but IPv6 with 10.10 installs on the respective server and desktop partitions does not allow a lan connection to the router. All are 64bit downloads.

Ubuntu :: Troubleshoot No Internet Connection On New Installation

May 21, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.10 on an Acer Aspire 3610 notebook. 2 GB RAM. This notebook had Internet access previously via Windows XP (now erased). Here is the partitioned drive. Two ext4 partitions for ubuntu "/" and "/home". Two ntfs partitions possibly for Windows. I have booted up the fresh installation of ubuntu 10.10. I had some glitch where I saw "Operating system not found' on booting from HDD and I wondered if this was due to failing drive.

But I've run a full test using Disk Utility and it shows as healthy. This message has gone away (I don't know why) and I can boot into ubuntu. The problem I'm trying to solve is simply no internet connection. Here are some outputs from commands ..

Ubuntu Installation :: Changing From Windows Version To Complete Installation

May 25, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Loss Of Internet Connection After Upgrade From 8.04 To 8.10?

Feb 27, 2010

Loss of internet connection after upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 Like the title says, I lost my internet connection after upgrading my Ubuntu system from 8.04 to 8.10.I used the downloaded automated method. It appeared to work fine on its initial reboot into 8.10. But I noticed the internet icon indicated loss of connection. Even so, I was still able to browse the net through Firefox. But then when I rebooted the next day the opposite was true: the connection icon indicated connection, but Firefox would not actually connect, nor would update manager. It has been like this since. This is a dual boot machine, and the Windows XP Pro side still connects to the internet as usual, no problems.So how can I make my new 8.10 system connect to the internet?

I use a Motorola SB4200 cable modem

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Applications On 9.10 Without Internet Connection?

Mar 2, 2010

I just recently Ubuntu 9.10 and have never used Linux at all before. I was wondering, all the links and tips and everything tell me to use Ubuntu Software Center. I haven't had a chance to actually go to the Software Center yet but does it require an internet connection to install software or can I download the tar.gz / tar.bz2 files from sources such as and still install them using Software Center without a Internet Connection?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Programs Without Apt-get/internet Connection?

Apr 24, 2010

I don't yet have an internet connection on my machine so I am using cyber cafes to do my research and whatnot. However, most of the stuff I read concerning updates and installations rely heavily on the machine using an internet connection to automatically install various packages.I don't mind reading up myself on this kind of thing but I think I need a pointer in the right direction as "ubuntu package install without apt/get" doesn't bring up much on a google search (the only entry on the first page is a post on this forum back from 2005 about kernal compiling!).

As an example, the file I would like to install is "aircrack-ng-1.0.tar.gz", which I've already downloaded and saved to my machine's desktop. I'm not really asking how to install aircrack, per se, but just any kind of package without relying on an internet connection (i.e. download the program/package to a flash disk and then on to my machine).

Ubuntu Installation :: Live Does Not Recognize Internet Connection?

Dec 5, 2010

On trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, one PC was fine. I attempted to install it on a Lenovo Q150 using the Ubuntu Live CD, but it did not recognize a network connection. When the same PC is running Windows 7, the network connection is fine (it recognizes my NAS drive also).Has anyone else had this problem/found a solution? I'm sure that someone else has posted this, but a couple of hours' searching revealed nothing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Download Or Update Because Of Internet Connection

Mar 23, 2011

I tried to download some software from the Ubuntu software center, and it does not download. It does not give me an error message, it just stays at 0 bytes. It eventually tells me to check my internet connection. (this does not make sense because I am using it to write this thread) I checked synaptic package manager for correct proxy settings and it was ok. I ran

sudo apt-get update

but to no avail. I am using wireless, and recently dissembled the computer to disconnect the CMOS battery, but I think that it was put back together properly.

Debian Installation :: GRUB Installation On MBR Fails To Complete

May 10, 2013

I have downloaded the Wheezy DVD 1 and started the istallation process. The installation time is strangely very short in respect to the Squeeze release, anyway

The GRUB installation step fails. I terminated the installation without a bootloader and rebooted from DVD with the rescue boot option.

Now I asked for a console to try to manually install the bootloader but the following command:

# grub-install /dev/sda1
[where sda1 is my root partition]

gets the following message:

/bin/sh: grub-install: not found

What can I do?

Ubuntu Installation :: Complete Re-installation If I Want To Run The Final Version Of 10.04?

Apr 7, 2010

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?
