Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Hardy To Karmic In The Presence Of RAID?

Jan 24, 2010

I really want Python 2.6, which is not part of the standard Hardy packages. I just tried installing the Python 2.6 Linux distro direct from python.org. While I didn't see any error messages during the installation, I'm still defaulting to Python 2.5, and 2.6 installed to a different folder than 2.5.

A secondary wish: I would also like GROMACS 4.0 instead of 3.3. Again, Karmic has it as standard, Hardy doesn't.

I'm running dual hard drives in a software RAID1 configuration. My system is Linux only, so I have no Windoze compatibility issues to worry about.

Still, I've gathered that upgrading in the presence of RAID is different, and more problematic, than a standard upgrade.

I did an upgrade over the internet and on rebooting after it had completed there was no internet connection. I wired in an ethernet cable and although I can access the router and ping another machine on the network, there is no internet connection.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Power While Upgrading To Lucid From Hardy?

Aug 8, 2010

I tried to upgrade my kubuntu 8.04 LTS to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as given here. Actually I wanted to upgrade to kubuntu. The download completed successfully. However,while upgrading the power went off and left the computer in bad state. Now I see multiple two entries for both

kubuntu 8.04.4 LTS, Kernel 2.6.24-28-generic
kubuntu 8.04.4 LTS, Kernel 2.6.24-28-generic (recovery mode)

in grub. Since I am not that familiar with ubuntu(in general linux), I would like
When I tried to boot in first two of these I get the following error message and it remains in command-line mode.

libudev: udev_monitor_new_from_netlink: error getting socket: Invalid argument
[ 20.839013] wait-for-root[946]: segfault at 00000030 eip b774bf2b esp bfb33340 error 4
Segmentation fault


However, the mount points are not having anything. It is like nothing got mounted. I would suspect there should be some way where I should be able to locate the downloaded upgrade stuff and apply it afresh again from start. Is this something possible?

Ubuntu Installation :: Inspiron 1501 WinXP/Hardy/Karmic Unintentional Quintuple Boot?

Feb 23, 2010

I've just had to reinstall WinXP on a Dell Inspiron 1501. An ideal opportunity to try out Ubuntu. First I tried a WinXP/Hardy Heron dual boot - all seems okay. Next WinXP/Karmic dual boot - all seems okay. Then, why not, WinXP/Hardy/Karmic triple boot - all seems okay. Playing with each OS I noticed that Hardy had a couple of update notifications. So I opened Update Manager, went on-line, hit [Check] and was informed that there were 200+ Important Security Updates - I installed these. Better check Karmic too - similar story, installed 200+ updates. Everything still seems okay in WinXP, Hardy and Karmic. However, I've just noticed that the Grub2 boot menu now displays eight "Ubuntu" lines, as opposed to the four lines I had originally

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (recovery mode)...

Ubuntu Installation :: Canon Pixma Ip1500 Worked With Hardy 8.04 But Not With Karmic 9.10 - Dependency Is Not Satisfiable

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Jaunty To Karmic?

Jun 8, 2011

I have a dedicated server running Ubuntu-server Jaunty. As you know, this OS no longer has security updates. I'm trying to upgrade it to the latest LTS (Lucid) but first thing's first: I'm having trouble upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic.

Here's the problem. I get the following when I try do-release-upgrade:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d

Done Upgrade tool signature
Done Upgrade tool


force an upgrade to Karmic instead of Lucid? (And no, sadly, re-installing is not an option as this is a server with no direct physical access)

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From FC To Karmic On Triple Boot Mac

Mar 14, 2010

I have a Core 2 Duo iMac that I had set up for triple boot using Fedora Core (probably FC8 )and GRUB, Windows XP Pro, and Mac OS X v10.5. Some time ago, I had to blow out and reinstall my Windows installation because it had developed errors, but this also blew out my GRUB, leaving the Fedora install non-bootable. Since I never really used FC on this machine much, I didn't worry.

Lately, I've acquired an hp Mini 110, on which I'm running Linux Mint 8 (Helena), and I'd like to upgrade my FC partition on the iMac to Karmic, but when I run the installer, it won't let me use all of the existing Linux partition, instead wanting to resize it to accommodate both FC and Ubuntu.

How do I make the installer simply replace FC with Karmic, using the entire existing partition? I'm sure earlier versions of Linux that I've used had a simple "erase all Linux partitions and install" option, and the "Manual" option doesn't appear to read the existing partition information (I was too afraid to go any further).

I ended up quitting the installer, which put me into the Live CD environment, where I used the File Browser to "Format..." the Linux partition, but when I went back to the installer, I ran into the same problem, and it didn't seem to matter if I unmounted the existing partitions or not.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Karmic To Lucid - Error

Jun 18, 2010

Error during commit 'E:Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on mountall' Restoring original system state

Yeah...that's what I get every time I try to upgrade to lucid lynx.

NOTE: I haven't updated for quite some time. I may have gotten one or two updates for karmic but that was it. Just thought it might be important....

NOTE: Also not sure if this is important, but karmic installed and did some funny stuff to itself. My desktop no longer exists. It just isn't there. Also, when I try to turn of my computer it gets all kinds of errors and eventually I have to just pull the plug....something about a dev loop0 right after is says its deactivating swap...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To RAID 1 Without A New Install?

Feb 21, 2010

I already have a 300 GB SATA drive with Ubuntu 8.04 installed on it. It is currently running off my mobo's onboard SATA 1.0 Raid Controller. I recently purchased a SATA 2.0 Raid PCI controller that I will be putting in the computer and 2 new 750 GB Western Digital Caviar Green Hard drives. I wish to add the two drives in a Raid 1 configuration to store all my Pictures, Files, and Movies on. Every instruction and tutorial I can find on setting up Raid on Linux assumes you are performing a fresh install on Linux and gives no tips or instructions for current installations. I already have Ubuntu installed and do not wish to have to reinstall it. I want to leave my installation on the 300 GB drive and just add in the 2 750GB drives for storage.

Ubuntu Installation :: Conemplating A Karmic Install With Software RAID 1?

Jan 26, 2010

I'm running a triple-core AMD 32-bit CPU, with two matched hard drives in a software RAID 1 configuration. The system is single-boot, running Hardy only. I have no Windoze compatibility issues to impede me. In some recent posts, I discussed my desire to add a few non-standard applications to Hardy. Well, it hasn't been working for me. I've succeeded in breaking my standard Python 2.5 installation, and the Python 2.6 that I was trying to install is also broken. After asking questions in various Python forums and not getting answers, I'm starting to think about my alternatives.

I have backed up all my hard-drive data, and downloaded Karmic. I'm running from the Live CD. I am considering a clean install, though of course I would save a lot of time if I could just upgrade.

Before I leap, I see one possible problem: Karmic has failed to mount any of my hard drive partitions, as RAID or otherwise. Should I worry? When I upgraded from Dapper to Hardy on an older (non-RAID) machine, I recall that my hard disk mounted from the Live CD just fine.

Also, am I correct in understanding that Karmic is RAID-aware right out of the box? I'm wondering if I'll have to set it up manually again. That took me a while. By the way, I didn't set up separate partitions for boot, root and home (stupid me). Can I do that after the fact during an upgrade?

General :: RAID And Grub 2 On Ubuntu Karmic Koala (installation)

Feb 11, 2010

I've been trying to get Grub 2 to work on a desktop system I'm trying to install Karmic Koala on. It's currently got two similar hard drives, which I've partitioned into a small /boot partition and the rest as a large general partition. Both are fd (linux software RAID) types. I boot from the Ubuntu live CD then create the RAID arrays as RAID 1 (requires installing mdadm to work). Then I start the arrays and begin the install.

I select manual partitioning and create the first RAID array (/dev/md0) as an ext4 /boot. The second array (/dev/md1) requires a new partition table. I then partition it as 20G for /, 2G for swap and the rest as /home, giving me /dev/md1p1, /dev/md1p2 and /dev/md1p3. When the install finishes, I mount the various partitions in /mnt (for /dev/md1p1) and below, including binding /dev and /proc. Then I chroot and install mdadm in the new system. I update grub, re-install it on /dev/sda & /dev/sdb then update the initramfs.

A quick reboot and things go wrong... Grub boots me into a recovery console. Apparently it can't see the partitions in the second RAID array. how to get Grub 2 and/or mdadm to work in this situation? I know that apart from the RAID, the above process worked to allow me to set up a Grub 2 boot on an antique laptop with an incomplete install.

Ubuntu :: CUPS Server Printing Worked On Hardy Not Anymore In Karmic?

Feb 4, 2010

I have an ubuntu server with a printer plugged to it through USB. I used to set the server ip on the Printing panel to print remotelly to it, but it doesn't work anymore since I upgraded to karmic. I can see the printer in the printer panel, and I can even print a test page through the panel, but I can't print from any other application. When I come to the printing screen, the printer has the message retrieving information from printer and I can't print. I guess the cups server is working well as I can print the test page, and I used to print with hardy, looks like if the changes made in the printing panel don't have any effect on the system.

General :: Slow And Poorly Working Karmic Koala After Upgrade From Hardy

Jan 21, 2010

I reinstalled Ubuntu on my HP pc-40 computer. I used to run Hardy Heron and am now running Karmic Koala. The cd drive which had had issues for a while, broke after finishing the install, when I tried to get the cd out.I dont know if this has anything to do with it, or if my computer is too old for Karmic Koala, or if possibly the harddrive didn't appreciate being overwritten a second time - but the graphics are not working well (small squares of previous windows linger in my present browser window*)everythin is much slower, and many applications come up without a border, or their windows cant be moved with the mouse.

To top it off, while I tried to fix a bug with the terminal (no border) and uninstalled it, I couldnt install it back. So no terminal, which really makes even a newbie like me sad.If I cant solve it in a few days I will probably try to install a smaller distro via USB - I think Slax can be installed straight to USB without a live cd?

Ubuntu :: Why A Hardy/Hardy Dual-boot Shouldn't Work

I can't see any reason why a Hardy/Hardy dual-boot shouldn't work, but does anyone know of any issues with this I might not be aware of?

Also, Brasero Disc Burner does not detect the presence of a cd/ DVD rom devices.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 Won't Boot In Presence Of Gentoo Drive

Nov 10, 2010

I've taken the plunge and embarked on my very first install/congifuration of Ubuntu. I've successfully installed 10.04 from the LiveCD onto a brand-new 500 GB hard drive. It boots fine. At least, it did until I reconnected another hard drive that contains a Gentoo system. (I had unplugged the Gentoo drive during the installation so as not risk mucking it up).In the presence of the Gentoo drive, the Ubuntu system starts to boot, but then fails with an a error that it's unable to mount /var.Investigation (df -k) indicates that it's mounted one of the parititions on the Gentoo drive. If I unplug the Gentoo hard drive, the Ubuntu system agains boots properly.

I have no idea why the 10.04 system even sees the other drive, much less mounts one of its partitions.My intent, once migrating to Ubuntu, was to copy needed user files and data from the old Gentoo system, then repartition the drive and use it for additional Ubuntu storage. Seems I can't get there from here.Is there some feature in Ubuntu that causes it to go looking for any other drives accessible on a system and then go about mounting random partitions?

Ubuntu :: Clean Install After Several Attempts At Upgrading From Karmic Failed?

May 30, 2010

I installed Lucid (clean install after several attempts at upgrading from Karmic failed), and I have an Intel 8xx video card. I was able to get Lucid installed by adding "xforcevesa" into the command line at startup. Now I would like to try changing my computer away from Vesa and seeing if I can try to get the i915 driver working.

That being said, I cannot figure out where to go to change my kernel boot configurations. Every tutorial I've found refers me to /boot/grub/menu.lst which I cannot find. Ever since I moved from Karmic to Lucid, I've regretted it as it seems like all the How-To documentation is no longer valid, everything has been changed and moved around.

I don't know why it is dumping me onto Vesa, or why my stupid driver was blacklisted; everything was working fine under Hardy, Jaunty, and Karmic. Why problems now? Does anyone know how I can get into my boot setings and replace "xforcevesa" with something that will make the intel driver work?
