Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu 10.10 Live USB Hangs After Boot Menu Option Selected

Dec 21, 2010

I have the same problem with an Ubuntu 10.04 live CD. Whenever I attempt to boot (Lu|U)buntu from a live CD/USB, on most computers. it works just fine. However, on two computers, the live media starts off just fine with the main menu (Try Ubuntu without installing, etc.), then, when I select any option except 'Boot from First Hard Disk', after a few seconds, the CD stops spinning or the USB loses power. I'm convinced it's not a problem from the media, since it works perfectly fine on some computers.

Networking :: Granting Selected User Access To Selected Network Interface?

Oct 3, 2009

I have a multi-user machine with several network interfaces (Ethernet, if that matters). I wish to grant selected users, or groups, full access to selected network interfaces (including ability to adjust IP address and to bind to low ports, but *only* on those interfaces). It is important to me that an user/group does not such full control over other interfaces. Granting partial, or temporary, root permissions is OK; it's a friendly environment.How do I go about it?System: Linux 2.6.recent; usual Debian setup (can be adjusted if needed).

Ubuntu :: Lubuntu - Install - REBOOTS After The TRY Or INSTALL Menu

Mar 31, 2011

IBM 600X Thinkpad, 328 MB RAM

This laptop is currently running Ubuntu 10.04 just fine....if you count running
a bit......slow.

I have heard good things about Lubuntu and that it can speed things up, and that it uses pretty much the same installer as Ubuntu. However, just after I select either TRY or INSTALL (it doesn't matter) the screen goes black and the computer reboots.

A fellow on another forum mentioned he has a IBM 600e with only 128 MB RAM running Lubuntu. The 600e is a lessor form of my 600X, both coming out the same year. So, technically, my 600X should have no problems as they are the same machine, I just have more RAM and a higher Mhz.

I can boot Lubuntu liveCD I burned on a desktop machine just fine so, on the face of things, it looks like the cd is OK.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Xubuntu - Lubuntu

Jun 5, 2011

My Specs;
Desktop PC, Tiger Direct, Firefly BCD.
Mother board; PC Chips M758LT - ID 9039E90F31D926C3.
Intel Celeron 1.3 GHz x86 Family 6 Model 11 Stepping 1.
Bios; American Megatrends Inc., 062710, 7/15/1997
SMBIOS Ver. 2.3
Memory; 512 MB

Master HD 20MB half full with 40MB Slave HD. WinXP service pack 3 and all updates are current, with one glitch, system will not 'restart' have to press off button, then have to press off button twice again to start XP running again. Tried to run off CD using xubuntu, Lubuntu 11.04 and Unbuntu 11.04. A page of errors covers the screen, I have a photo attached which I hope you can download and zoom in on.

It starts out with, 570.240718 Kernal panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! 570.24786 Pid:1, comm:init not tainted 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu.... Regards, Michael A I'm going to mark this as solved. I have to add a 40mb hard drive and make it master and make 20mb hd the slave and add 2 - 256 ram instead of 128 memory. I have an issue where xp will not reboot so i intend to format both hd's and try to install 10.04.2 from cd for a full install, no windows. I will report back.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu Install Freezes On Boot Up?

Aug 23, 2010

Linux newb here. I was looking for a lightweight distro that I really like and Lubuntu was it. I installed in on all three of my comps with out issues and my old Dell desktop(512mb ram) is flying now. Way faster than XP even right after a fresh install of both on the same desktop. On my fourth install, my girlfriends old toshiba laptop, it installed fine. After the restart and reboot it gets to the Lubuntu logo with the 5 dots under it. It gets through 4 of the dots then freezes. I left it for 20 minutes and it was stuck.

I tried booting from cd again and check disc for defects. It said it found 2 files with errors, press any key to reboot. Which I did and it just booted right back into the freeze. Maybe since I have to manually make it boot from cd every time it was wanting to boot back into the CD after the disc check, I'm not sure. I tried burning a new iso on a slower speed, same thing for a total of 3 reinstalls with the same effect. The only thing different about this install compared to my others is:

A) I had to flash the bios from windows before I started to even get the damn thing to be able to boot from CD

B) I decided to just wipe XP and install Lubuntu on the whole drive.

Ubuntu :: Selected 'auto Loggin' From The Install CD?

Sep 9, 2010

Just got Ubuntu (latest, greatest) installed. IIRC I selected 'auto loggin' from the install CD, but I'm unsure how this works. I have a user loggin 'ray' and a PW that's all OK. In the GUI, if I want to do something heavy it asks me for a PW which tells me that I'm 'root' at that time.But at the CL prompt I can't log in as root with no PW nor with the PW I use as 'ray'. BTW, is there somewhere I can bitch about the install CD? It was not an unpleasant experience, but I think it could be a bit better.

I then tried a ubuntu-studio dvd I had handy just to see if this would work - and it started installing as expecting, I cancelled it after a while. how to get lubuntu running?

I'm trying to install Lubuntu 10.10 on a board with a AMD Geode LX800 @ 500MHz and 256 MB of memory. I've been sucessful in running in Live Cd mode from a CF card, however when trying to install it gets stuck with either this message "syscall_call+0x7/0xb" or this "kernel_thread_helper".

PS. I've also tried other distros however only this and Xubuntu were able to go into Live CD mode, and Xubuntu was slow, very slow.

I'm currently stuck at the "lubuntu - Install lubuntu" screen on a Dell Optiplex GX150 (specs; Pentium III 1 GHz, 512 mb RAM, 20 GB HDD). I can hear the CD spinning up but nothing happens. Looking at the specs, the PC should be able to run lubuntu, right? Could somebody point me in the right direction? I've verified both the ISO and the CD checksum, both check out, so there should be no issue with the install media

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Selected Kernel Package

Mar 15, 2010

I've been trying to install Ubuntu Server on an old server since a couple of days and have been unsuccessful. I've google'd a bit but found no solid solution yet to this problem. Everything goes fine and I'm able to partition my SCSI drives and everything. After the installation starts unpacking and copying files this happens. I have to mention that I'm installing from a USB drive with the following added at the end of the normal install options:


--install cdrom-detect/try-usb=true

Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu - Install The Drivers For Video Card - GeForce 6200

May 5, 2010

I installed Lubuntu 10.04 yesterday (yay, my first serious installation!), and I was trying to install the drivers for my video card (GeForce 6200), when it told me that it couldn't use ld. After oing some research I found out that it was in binutils. So I went over and got it and tried to ./configure it when it told me that there weren't any C compilers in $PATH, so I went over to the gcc homepage with a fine-toothed comb and found gcc 4.5.0. When I tried to./configure it, it also told me that there aren't any C compilers in $PATH.

OpenSUSE Install :: Graphics Card Driver / Everything Is Greyed Out (nothing To Be Selected)?

Jun 18, 2009

I recently installed SuSE 11.1 (64 bit) on my system

AMD Phenom II 940 3.0 Ghz;Biostar TA790GX 128M Motherboard with ATI Radeon HD 3300 Graphics card built in;
4 Gb (2*2 sticks) DDR2 800 MHz RAM

The installation went smoothly, But on first restart and login (and subsequent ones too!) I get a light purple screen with a skyblue box at top left corner, with xconsole written on it. when I Left click anywhere on the screen, I get a popdown with a number of options, of which only XTerm (bash shell) and exit (logout) options work. Now I know the HD 3300 graphics card drivers are not built into the SuSE 11.1 distribution, and I have already downloaded them (Linux ones)from ATI website. I login as Superuser, and type init 3 to go to a very basic screen,login as user, change to superuser again and then run the following file i downloaded from ATI:

sh ati-driver-installer-9-4-x86.x86_64.run

The result/output at the command prompt:

Created directory fglrx-install.ubanI5
Verifying archive Integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI proprietary linux driver-8.602...
.....(lot of dots)...
ati-driver-installer-9-4-x86.x86_64.run: line 295: ./ati-installer.sh: Permission denied Removing temporary directory: fglrx_install.ubanI5

Once again, i tried everything in superuser login.

Also I tried making changes via sax2 command, it doesnt seem to work. A window opens where I see that my graphics card has been detected but thats about it. nothing else in that option, everything is greyed out (nothing to be selected)

Ubuntu :: Install Program Hangs After "Install Ubuntu Server" Is Selected

Jan 21, 2010

I have a compaq server machine (ProLiant DL380 G2) that I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server on at the moment

However when I select "Install Ubuntu Server" it hangs with a flashing cursor

At first it was displaying an error message:

"create_floppy_devices[195]: specified group 'floppy' unknown"

But then after I disabled the diskette boot option and the integrated diskette controller in the BIOS it has just started to hang with no on screen messages at all (this is true if one or the other of these options is enabled)
