I try thus Ubuntu Linux Server edition 10.10. I have installed it on a Virtual machine but don't know how to open GUI (Windows mode) in linux. What is the command for that or do i need setup anything more?
I attempted to install Catalyst 10.11 for my ATI HD 2600XT and the system now only displays lines and a large block of pixels where the mouse would go. CTRL-ALT-F1 kills the system and does not provide a command prompt. This is a single installation, not dual-boot, but there is no Press Esc to access the Grub menu during startup so I cannot choose safe mode. I attempted to get into Recovery mode using the flash drive that I used to install the system and it tells me there is no Recovery kernel (I used the 64-bit Desktop installer, not alternative). Does anyone know an alternative to get into the Grub menu other than ESC during bootup? Alternatively, do I need to download the 64-bit Alternative ISO and create a new boot disk with it so I can access Recovery mode? Is there something else I'm not thinking of?
how do I make grub boot to allow me to choose, like safe mode and normal mode and all that second, how do I do automated back ups (preferably using file copy) for something like every sunday at 11:00 am using the command line, i use to know but forgot.
So I finally got ubuntu..I wanted to play team fortress 2.Runs great in wine etc.But 1 problem.It keeps saying my graphic card is outdated.I cant see anything.So I downloaded the driver from nvidia website.Followed some instructions.But it says cannot open binary file or something.Is there any other way to update graphic drivers.Cause I realy still want to play some windows games.Mount&blade, Atlantica online,team fortress 2 etc
i justy got me a dedi box and there is no graphic driver installed on it, or it dont work :/ VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8 KM266/KL266] but wen i try installing enemy territory it comes back with error on graphic card
I have an ubuntu PC with 512 MB ram and an 3d graphic card that can normally support Guild Wars on windows xp. I installed the game with Wine an the game opens, I can see my character menu but the problem is none of the 3D graphic parts works, I just see a black screen.I even installed directX.
I tried to install the nvidia driver using yum. I had the nouveau graphic driver installed. I didn't follow any tutorial I just installed the nvidia driver over the installed one. Thinking that yum would take care of everything for me. When I rebooted I get as far as "registering binary handler for windows applications" I can still log on using alt+f2 and mount the file system using chroot but I cannot get any network access. When I use netstat -nr nothing is configured. I can't ping my router or any other computer on the network.I figure I should disable the nouveau driver and try to use the nvidia tutorial by leigh123linux to get the desktoop up again but I need net access to do that.I have no idea how to get that done. I have tried, ifdown/ifup, /etc/init.d/networks restart, service network stop/start/restart, ifconfig eth0.
I have an cent os system,that i installed on my server. I have installed it with a graphical installation.(with graphic card) Now the system doesnt boot without a graphic card. I want use my server without a graphic card.
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
I have a jpeg file on my Windows system that won't delete. However, when I try to boot into safe mode to delete it, I can not get into the menu to select "Safe Mode". F8 just boots me right into Ubuntu.I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 on an Acer Aspire 5520.
I've set up a triple boot system (Ubuntu Karmic, Windows Vista and OSX86 -- a patched OS X which works on a PC) on a Dell 9200 (C2D 2.13 GHz, 4GB RAM, nVidia G210). I sue Grub2 as the bootloader and update-grub picks up OS X and it boots without any problem.
However, although when booting OS X using its own Darwin bootloader, I can apply the boot option "Graphics Mode"="1680x1050x32" to ensure that I get the screen resolution that I want, when OS X boots from Grub2, the only resolution available is 1024x768 which is disappointing. I have tried adding gfxmode=1650x1050x32 to the OS X section of /boot/grub/grub.cfg in Ubuntu but this does nothing.
Ubuntu 10.10 doesn't boot at all. The liveCD only boots once every like 30 attempts, installing from liveCD froze, but the Alternate CD worked and installed ubuntu. Now when I try to boot into it using GRUB, it freezes at the beginning of the boot process.With normal boot it freezes at line: Starting AppArmor profiles Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox.With recovery mode it freezes even before showing me anything
A little kinda like the liveCD, if I try like 30 times, it might manage to boot once in normal mode.That line keeps on repeating, the the xxx.xxx integer changes each time, and this goes on forever.I tried removing my floppy drive, but it didn't help.I tried to boot with fd0=noprobeThe one time it booted, when I restarted, it froze while trying to restart.
I would like to know how do I get my Ubuntu 9.10 OS to boot into the command promp. Something along the lines of what you get when you hit CTRL+ALT+F1. What I have done so far is:
1. Made a "inittab" file and wrote in it :id:S:initdefault: (something like that, did not work).
2. "sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove" (did not work)
3. Write in the rc.local script "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" (this killed the system all together).
4. "sudo chmod a-x /etc/init.d/gdm" (did not work)
5. Write in the file ~/bashrc "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop 1>&2" (it takes me to the command promp after the gdm loads, and I open the gnome terminal).
6. I tried to edit the /etc/default file to add "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash text" (did not work. The file does not exist).
7. Lastly I found online that you can stop GDM from starting up from the "services-admin" program. Only that program was taken out in 9.10.
Is there anyway to boot into the command line promp, without deleting the GDM? The only other way I found to boot into a select "Recovery Mode" from the Grub menu as a default boot. That, too, does not boot me into a command promp directly. It boots into that blue screen (no pun intended. hahahaha... Linux has a blue screen ) with the options.
In these days I install ubuntu 9.10 64bit on several notebook (Intel + AMD Switchable Graphics, NVIDIA Optimus Hybrid graphics), but the same problem is it can't boot ubuntu with graphic mode. I only can install it with text mode, and after installation, it still boot with text mode. I tried to execute startx, but failed to switch to graphics mode. I didn't see this issue with some notebooks with ATI/NVIDIA graphics, so I think this issue may relate with VBIOS VBE mode settings.
When I try to execute "startx" under the text mode, some error information appears as below. (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory (EE) No devices detected. Fatal server error: no screens found
First let me say sorry if this is in the wrong thread. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to linux. I was trying to figure out how to get an external monitor as my primary monitor on my laptop when i made a change that cause the desktop environment to keep logging me out. I got it into safe mode and resolved the issue but i have my account set to not ask for a password on login and it keeps booting to safe mode now. I have tried logging out and typing my username to get the option to select the normal desktop but as soon as i enter my username it boots bake in as safe mode. The option to require a password on login is not working in this mode. Anyone know how I can get this corrected?
I have UBUNTU 11:04 and prefer the display given by " SAFE MODE" - is there a way that I can lock to ensure that Ubuntu always boots up in safe Mode.Save me having to remember to change the preferences every time I reboot. Alternatively can I change the display to be equal to that given in Safe Mode.
I'm having a huge problem right now and I could use some help deciphering what's wrong.I can't get my system to boot (see signature) and even the recovery mode is buggered. henever I try to boot, all I get is a flashing underscore. This is the same for both the normal and recovery modes Kernels. I've run the boot info script from a live cd and I've attached it to this post.
I had been using Ubuntu 10.04.1 in a Macbook pro (triple boot: Mac, Win7 and Ubuntu). Now I am not able to boot in to Ubuntu in graphics mode. It just freezes after the Ubuntu logo appears. It happened once before and I re-installed the OS. Now I have the same issue. I can boot in recovery mode and get into my account.
When I tried startx command I get the error below:
(there is more stuff splashed on the screen, but the above two are the only errors I see)
I thought of reinstalling the OS. But this may happen again and re-installing the OS every month wipes out all my configurations and files in my account.
Installed ubuntu successfully on the hard disk through live CD. My machine is a ASUS K40IN, with Graphics card GEForce G102M. Can't get ubuntu to run normally so I have to access through terminal in recovery mode. I need to install the drivers for the graphics card so I can run ubuntu in some form of gdm, otherwise I'm pretty much blind since I'm not too good with code.
/etc/x11/xorg.conf does not exist, so I can't use the exploit to get me to low graphics mode.
If there's a command I can enter into grub to run me in low graphics mode, anyone? I'm keeping [URL] and [URL] threads in view, since it's very possible I'm running into the same problems. I have the nvidia driver loaded on my ntfs usb stick ready to transfer and install but I can't seem to mount it proper. FailsafeX graphics mode does not work. I get a blank black screen.
After I upgraded to 11.04 I now can only boot in safe mode. When I boot up in regular mode everything on the desktop is showing but I cant open anything. When I try to boot up in the classic mode, which is what I prefer, I just get my wallpaper on my desktop but no icons or anything. I didn't mind the safe mode at first but I now realise I cant install any updates which isn't good. I have 222 updates that need installed.
I had many problems with installing kubuntu 11.04 on my laptop HP Elitebook 8560p and after downloading different iso everything works well, but sistem freezeout and would not reboot also in recovery mode that would load untill Recovery menu when system won't responde.
as Ubuntu is my only OS on this box.I had this PC running as a server for a few months with few reboots.I installed updates as usual yesterday, and hadn't changed anything configuration-wise since the last reboot. Well last night this server that I was running was moved to another Windows box and so I finally got to shut this PC down for the night. In the morning, I was greeted with an endless splash screen. It went on for 20 minutes without anything. I did update the kernel through update manager.
So what do I do? This machine has a 1TB HDD with a lot of very important data on it--reformatting is not a considerable option at this point. Which is bad because I don't know what else I could so when even recovery mode isn't working...
I edited the /etc/default/grub file (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash text" ) to make ubuntu boot into text mode directly, but now the problem is some LCD (1366x768 resolution)no display when boot into text mode. It may be relate with LCD EDID, the same ubuntu OS hard disk can boot into text mode with another LCD (1600x900 resolution).
