Ubuntu Installation :: Does Not Complete Its Installation Verify?
Mar 3, 2011
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a computer that's already running Windows Vista. I used the Wubi installer and it seemed to go through the installation fine (using the desktop, amd64 iso file). After rebooting, I get the dual boot option. However, on Ubuntu start-up, I get a display with the message stating Verifying Installation Files. It seems to go through some verification, but then it gets stuck. I see a bunch of lines with the words "ubuntu ubiquity" with hexadecimal values and regular words. The last hexadecimal values to appear are: 7f2698c50d8e, 7f2698fca815; the last regular word is "_target".
If I quit out of the verification, I am able to get onto the desktop area, but a message appears stating a parted_server crash occured. Also, my wireless connection doesn't work, but I suspect I need to install a driver.
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?
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?
I just downloaded the "Fedora-11-i686-Live-KDE.iso" and "Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso". I want to check if the downloaded files correct or not. I can use a tool to get the md5 sum of the downloaded files. But I want to compare them with the original ones.
I want to verify that serial port libraries are installed in my system.I know that it is installed at /usr/local/lib. But I dont know what all files are to be present in there, so to ensure that the same is installed properly. Iam using suse 11.1.
The problem is that it has no way to connect to the net because it has no lan card.I was thinking of installing Mint or Ubuntu since he just needs it only for Word & Spreadsheet stuffs.I was thinking of cloning my own Mint on a USB pen drive and dump it on his HD.
i tried to install f13 from live cd and failed. i have 2 questions. i do not understand how to setup partitions according to scottro's message. It says you need small ext3-formatted /boot partion and a ext4-formatted root partition. Does this configuration have to be setup before you boot into the live cd? If so, please tell me how to set this up. my pc is pentium d with 2 hard drives. The master hd is has xp, ubuntu8.04, and swap partitions. I would like to use one-half of the slave drive for f13.
Second question. I would like to be able to verify download of fedora-13-i686.iso. I downloaded it to my xp partition and installed Windows MD5summer. Where or how do i get the md5 file for this iso file?
How can I be sure to complete the update? Updating from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS with some 'stop' new kernel not in use, and grub setup, using 'local' the now new 10.04 LTS as it calls itself is loading and large parts working.
After I downloaded and installed the software "Aircrack" from the Synaptic Package Manager and restarted the PC, I still could not find Aircrack under Application or System. Can anyone advise me if I need to do more to complete the installation of Aircrack?
Looks like I waited too long to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. Now the Update Manager wants to take my system to 10.04, but then says it is 'not supported with this tool'.Do I need to do a complete re-install of the OS? Is there a reasonable way to get to 9.10 without a complete re-install?
i am having a problem installing ubuntu 10.10. i had windows vista and used ubuntu inside windows with no problem. then, i wanted to reset my vista to its factory conditions (just to clean up space and get rid of hidden or unnecessary things) using the recovery disk - and the recovery disk partially worked, removed my os and didn't 'restore' anything. so i decided to just go all the way to ubuntu anyway, which was the plan all along, just sooner now.
i have the disk and i can easily make it to the 'try ubuntu' feature. however, when i try to actually install ubuntu, i make it all the way to the 'who are you page?' but the 'forward' button isn't accessible (which is how i noticed something might be wrong). this happens whether i try to install after trying ubuntu or if i try to direcly install without trying it first. i fill in the data, the installation says it's copying files, etc... and then, when it's done, it says 'ready when you are'. that's it. i can't click on 'forward', and none of the 'information about ubuntu' features and pics scroll by while the setup is taking place. i can't do anything at this point. the system isn't really frozen but it just does nothing. (i thought i might have to restart the computer but the only options i have are 'hibernate' and 'suspend'. also, once i manually restart everything it reloads all over again. when i take the disk out and restart, i see NOTHING. the vaio logo comes on, then the screen goes black and i see the cursor prompt but nothing else at all and i can't do anything at all.
Decided to upgrade my 8.04 server to 10.04 today. Everything went smooth when I tried to install in vmware. When I tried to install it on my real machine the installation hangs at 74% Storing Language...
I've checked the disk and I tried different ways to install (different language, both keyboard and system). The first two attempts the installer just turns off and the computer reboots. This third time it just hangs. how to debug and solve this problem?
It's the x86_64 version. I'm using the standard options all the time including LVM on whole disk.
I am trying to move my installation from my wubi drive to another drive, i use LVPM, but the listed partitions in LVPM, doesnt mention which partition is which , the available space in each partition is not listed, there are 5 partition in the MOVE section in LVPM, any clues of how to find out which is which, please urgent help, performance is not perfect with the WUBI installation.
I was installing 10.04 as a dual boot with Win7, the install was interrupted and now I can't do anything with it. Booting, I get as far as '[0.541227] kernal_thread_helper' and it stops there with or without a disc. How do I complete the install or strip out something so that I can start again?
I just installed ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit) on my system. I mounted / on my SSD and /home on my HD. The installation proceeded for a while and then I suddenly got a message that the installer crashed. Nevertheless the installed linux seems to work and I can boot in Ubuntu. Not sure what exactly is wrong now that the install didn't complete. Any way for me to check what went wrong and what exactly I can do to make sure my system is ok? All appears ok but appearances can be deceiving.
Just joined the forums as I was downloading Ubuntu Desktop 9.10 (32-bit) from [URL]
Upon burning the .iso to the CD using ImgBurn, the verification of the CD (after burning) could not verify "initrd.lz". I checked that the file was there (it was about 5KB) and continued anyway (probably not a good idea but I figured I could always "Check disk for defects")
After putting the disk in, everything started up great, I selected English and when I clicked on "Check disk for defects" the entire process froze and a multicolored bar of random pixels showed up. I rebooted and tried the "Install Ubuntu" and even the F6 Other Options (checking all the options, then clicking "Install Ubuntu"). I even tried "Test Memory".
Otherwise the menu screen works fine. All F1 through F6 work, the entire help documentation works, but no installer.
I'm sort of stuck now and could use some input since this is uncharted territory for me. The computer does have a version of Windows XP in who-knows-what condition (it won't start up). I don't care about any of the information on the drive and would be fine with wiping it out because that's what I originally planned to do.
I have an odd issue that someone has hopefully seen before or can provide a next step. Firstly, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 about 7 months ago and things ran fine. I then did an upgrade (via apt-get) to the 9.10 kernel: Current: Linux 2.6.31-16-generic #53-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 8 04:02:15 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Still, I had a properly functioning system. I then decided to install selinux since I was interested in learning how to set it up and get familiar with it's security features. When I was installing it, it got stuck on the portion where it had to modify Grub. It got stuck in a similar point as the following:
I would like to find out how to back up a complete Ubuntu system, and then restore it on a clean harddisk.I have been running dual booting with Win XP until now. I am running Ubuntu 10.04, but have installed quite few add-on. I would like to make an Ubuntu-only machine now, with all the same apps still there, but dont want to go and download everything again. I am looking for a way I can back this entire Ubuntu installation up, and then restore it to a clean drive.
I just tried to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10, but since update-manager did not show the upgrade button (for some reason it did not know that there was a new release?), I tried upgrading using sudo do-release-upgrade.This only worked partially though, and now when I run lsb_release -a it says that I am running maverick, but when I try to run update-manager, it says that the upgrade was only completed partially, and it suggests that I try to finish the upgrade, but it then gets the following error:"An upgrade from "maverick" to "lucid" is not supported with this tool"
so i have installed compiz 9 and it didn't quite work for me, then i have reverted to compiz 8 and things where fine, but after a while my desktop started slowing down for no apparent reason, so i decided to install the nVIDIA drivers from the manufacturer's site, good, i typed in:
Code: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop and then i installed the drivers with the sh command, stuff went right, but i could not
.After trying to instal 10.40 as a "guest" of Windows7 in its own partition on drive D I got all the way thru then re-booted to finish the install as requested. At that point after reboot I selected Ubuntu from the boot menu then it hung up after quickly displaying and overwriting some option numbers - probably for GRUB
I uninstalled 10.40 then tried Ubuntu 9.4. It worked better and gave me an option menu after the install reboot. If I chose "normal" it also hung up.I was succesful by chosing one of the other GRUB choices that it gave me.Now everything works but with an older version.
I've recently got myself a new laptop which I would like to install the Linux Mint 10. But there's some problems with the installaton. Just when it's about to wrap up it stalls and I can't proceed and complete the installation.
