Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Stalls During Partitioning Step

Mar 6, 2010

I have tried installing Ubuntu 9.10, 64 and also 32 bit versions, neither works. During the install, I get to the step where the installer wants to bring up and show the partitions but the partitions never appear. If I quit, I am show the Ubuntu live screen where if I bring up Gparted and choose to install on the unused partition (second half of a data drive), the install proceeds but stalls at about 15% partitioning of that space.

I have installed Ubuntu many times before, have used gparted live to resize and create partitions in the past, something seems really amiss this time. And all I can think of is that I now have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (quad core AMD processor, 64 bit, 8GB ram; two hard drives, Win7 on the first drive, second drive is data on a partition and an empty unused partition to which I unsuccessfully try to install Ubuntu 9.10.

Is it just Win 7 messing this up? If it is Win7, that is very very disturbing.

I was not even able to get Wubi to work-- in installed, but then when I rebooted and chose to boot into Wubi I got an endless jam up of errors windows on the screen saying there was no "/" root partition.

Fedora Networking :: Couldn't Find Any Step-by-step Installation Guides For NM

Jan 23, 2010

My son's desktop has Fedora 12 and a wireless card. Everything worked for a long time until one fine day the network management just disappeared from both System/Preferences menu and the panel on top.I can run a Live CD with Fedora 12 on that machine and it immediately connects to our home wireless network. Booting from hard drive has no sign of NM. Trying to run 'yum install NetworkManager-gnome' does nothing because there is no connection. Running the same command as a LiveUser from CD does seem to install everything (but where to???), no errors reported, and still the is no network functionality upon reboot from the hard drive, even when plugging to LAN with a cable.It seems that I need NetworkManager in order to go online in order to install NetworkManager.I have other computers at home that work fine, I was able to download a couple of archives with NM, but I am new to Linux and have no idea what to do with those files.I could not find any step-by-step installation guides for NM, especially when the computer has no connection at all.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Find One Comprehensive Step-by-step?

Sep 4, 2010

I have read a bajillion tutorials and have gotten nowhere. This is my first Linux box, and it has been nothing but headaches. i'm pretty handy around computers, I took a Unix class, and I used Dos as a kid, but i'm just having so much trouble with this.I just want to remotely control my Ubuntu box from my windows laptop over my home network. That's it. I cannot find one comprehensive step-by-step tutorial that will show me how to do this. Everything I find assumes I know at least something about linux, and I don't.

I have Putty, realvnc and tightvnc viewer installed on my laptop.I have open-ssh and vx11 somethingorotherinstalled on the Ubuntu box. I have also allowed remote connections on Ubuntu from system>preferences. I am getting very frustrated and would really appreciate someone giving me some help. So far I HAVE been able to remotely control the box through one method. Through the GUI on ubuntu I went to: System>Preferences>network connections

and set the server to static IP, then I was able to use real VNC viewer from my windows machine to connect to the IP I set ( but I couldn't get there through servername.local or whatever it said. The problem witht his solution is that the Ubuntu box then couldn't connect to the internet (which I need it to do.) someone please please please direct me to the information I need for this simple task. I just need to remotely control the desktop, the reason I wanted to use vnc through ssh so that I can leave the ubuntu box headless. Using just VNC I was having problems when the box was rebooted (had to log in before I could remotely control it... something about a security key ring?)

Fedora Networking :: Step By Step Guide To Folder Sharing Inside LAN

Jun 26, 2011

Recent refugee from Ubuntu here. Fedora fan for one month.I have two computers that access the Internet through a router. They are assigned IPs dynamically by the router's DHCP. I need each computer to be able to "see" some shared folder on the other one, with RW permissions to that folder and its content.I want to use Nautilus to access those folders from each computer.

Tried NFS, Samba, gnome-user-share to no avail.

Willing to kill Fedora's firewall forever in order to ease folder sharing.Can some kind and knowledgeable person try a step by step setup guide for this? As an 8-year Linux user I am not afraid of command line interfaces.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu Install Stalls Out At 85-90%?

Feb 26, 2011

Total noob here. I am trying to install Mythbuntu 10.10 on a computer with and empty hard drive using a CD.The install start fine, I make a couple of selections to tell the installer I want to use the entire harddrive, select the timezone and the install starts without any problems. Unfortunatly after about 30min or so, the installation seem to be stalled out with the progress bar at the 85-90% range. There are no obvious errors in the log.

I have successing installed Ubuntu in the past (although not on this hardware). The PC includes an IDE based DVD-R, 120Gb sata based ssd, 939 dual core processor. 8600GT video card. 2Gb memory. One possibility is that I don't have a TV tuner card installed yet. Was going to do that after I got Ubuntu up and running but perhaps the installer is looking for a tuner card. I realize I am not giving anyone much to work but I am not sure what I could post.

General :: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Installation Stalls?

May 1, 2010

I've downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 from the UK mirror of the Ubuntu site. When I try to install the OS from the CD it stalls at various different places. I have been able to get it to a max of 25% of installation before stalling, but more often than not it stalls when I'm trying to choose the keyboard type, or when I'm trying to setup my username / PC hostname.

I've carried out an md5sum on the iso and it shows no errors. I've downloaded the iso a second time and carried out the same check, and similarly no errors.

Ubuntu Installation :: [10.04] Netinstall Stalls After Choosing Archive

Mar 16, 2011

Using UNetBootin on Windows, I flashed a USB keydrive with the Ubuntu 10.04 Minimal CD and proceeded to boot up a brand new PC.

Problem is, after choosing Install, language/keyboard, and then a repository from which to download files, the installer just stops there. I tried two different repositories, to no avail. The network hardware is correctly detected and set through DHCP.

Has someone seen this? Should I use an other option?

Debian Installation :: IBook G3 Stalls On Install

Aug 28, 2010

I am trying to install the PPC kernel on an iBook G3. The CDs boot up, however both the net-install and the regular install cd both freeze up after it looks for harddisks. The screen is blue. The box title says

"Loading additional components"
"Retrieving lvm2-udeb"

I have no clue what to do. I am trying to get an error readout, but nothing but the power button works. It shuts it off. I check the system clock and it was wrong, but I got it set to the correct time. I don't have and OSX disks. I am wanting a full Linux HD. Please let me know how to trouble shoot. (I have seen that many people have no problem installing this on there macs. The os is still working on the os side, but I want to switch it to Linux.)

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Stalls At Copying Imade To HD?

Nov 9, 2010

I am doing a clean install of Fedora 13 XFCE4 spin from the live CD. Live CD boots and functions normally. Installation from Live CD works as advertised up to point where the installer starts to copy the disk image to the HD. Progress bar initially moved fairly rapidly then stopped and installations stalls.

I've tried the installation three times with the same result. I've seen other posts referring to problems with SELinux, but this should not be a factor here as the install is clean.
