Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Package Does Not Contain JDK Documentation

Feb 26, 2010

When I try to install something VIA Software center, there's always something else installing first. So, I chose the obvious thing, and ran sudo dpkg --configure -a. Here's what it fed me
joshua@joshua-laptop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
[sudo] password for joshua:
Setting up sun-java6-doc (6-15-1) ...

This package is an installer package, it does not actually contain the JDK documentation. You will need to go download one of the archives:
jdk-6u10-docs.zip jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip
(choose the non-update version if this is the first installation).
Please visit [URL] now and download. The file should be owned by root.root and be copied
to /tmp. [Press RETURN to try again, 'no' + RETURN to abort]. I went to the website and couldn't find either file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flash Plugin Installer - Broken Package

Mar 14, 2010

So I tried to download adobe flashplayer from a site I'm not sure of, and it didn't install flashplugin-installer. My pc always bugs me about having a broken packet and i'm not able to download anything else because of it. I've tried for a long time now and visited like every site to try to get rid of it. It says "E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal."

When I try to delete it in system package manager. And it says I need to do this "This package is a transitional package that can safely be removed after you installed flashplugin-installer." I can't find where to install this and when I did think I found the link I try to type my password for terminal and it just says sorry, try again for some reason. I got ubuntu yesterday so I am new to this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Package Installer Closes When Trying To Install Libc6?

Jul 22, 2010

I have a laptop which has Xubuntu on a Wubi install. I have no way to connect my laptop to the internet, as I have dial-up on my desktop and my laptop doesn't have a dial-up modem. I need to install "libc6" as a dependency for libc6-dev, but when I double click the .deb (which I transferred using an sd card using my desktop, which has Vista) It shows the window for a couple seconds, and then closes. I already have libc6 installed, but it is an older version.

Fedora Installation :: Package Installer Error - Apps Security Sensitive

Mar 12, 2009

I'm logged in as root and want to run Add/Remove Software (Package Installer) but get the message telling me

Running graphical applications as a privileged user should be avoided for security reasons. Package management applications are security sensitive and therefore this application will now close.

How must I install applications? Surely the world is getting paranoid with all this hackers and viruses, because with every new version O/S, the security features gets more and more; up to the point that you can't fricken do and play around with your pc as you would.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Installer For 64-bit?

Jan 12, 2011

I have a Ubuntu 10.10 live cd for 32-bit. However it does not work with my system--I am guessing it has something to do with having more than 4 gigs of ram.

Anyway I am wondering if there is a way to install ubuntu 10.10 64-bit with Windows 7 64-bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Installer Does Not Loading

Mar 21, 2010

I use to have vista and ubuntu on my PC. Yesterday accidentally I created a new partition "table" the point is that I erased all my partitions on "MyDisk". After a while I decided to re-install ubuntu ( 9.10 karmic koala ) and take advantage of the situation and upgrade to Windows7. Since I already had the ubuntu cd, I installed it first, then downloaded the Win7 cd to install it. The problem is that Windows7 installer doesn't load.

All I get is:
Grub loading.
Ubuntu logo
ubuntu login

So I don't know whats wrong. Right now my disk looks like this:
MyDisk >
MyDisk1 ntfs ( For windows 7 )
MyDisk2 > extended (using linux with 2 more partitions: ext4 and linux-swap)

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Installer Doesn't See Windows 7?

Oct 26, 2010

I've searched the forums, internet, etc... and I can't seem to find anything on this. I installed Windows 7 using ~70% of my available hard drive space, the other 30% is unallocated. there are two partitions, the 100MB 'System' partition and the NTFS one with Windows 7.

On my first attempt to install Ubuntu: The partitions didn't look right. It detected two NTFS partitions, the first one of 100MB, and a second NTFS partition using ~30% of my hard drive, and 70% (presumably Windows) as unallocated. I decided to go ahead and try to install it over the 30% NTFS partition thinking that maybe the installer just didn't recognize the free space right or something, but after that happened, Nothing loaded and my Windows partition was trashed.

I wiped the drive, and reinstalled Windows again with the 70/30 split. On my second attempt to install Ubuntu: On step 4 of the installation process (partitions) it doesn't detect my Windows 7 installation at all. Instead, it says the disk is 100% unallocated.

Does anyone know why the Ubuntu Installer is not detecting my Windows partition correctly? If so, how can I go about getting Ubuntu to see it and install itself along side Windows?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Installer Won't Detect Windows 7

Aug 11, 2011

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 alongside Windows 7, but when I boot from the CD, Ubuntu refuses to detect the presence of Windows 7. I tried unplugging all my external hard drives to see if that made a difference, but Ubuntu still can't tell that I have Windows 7 on there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Stuck At Copying Files?

Jun 13, 2010

I am trying to install KUbuntu and the installer is struck at "copying files." The first time the installation went fine besides grub not booting properly. So I went ahead and tried to reinstall Kubuntu and now the installer hangs at 15-23% at copying files. I've already erased a bunch of partitions and told the installer to install the OS on "the largest contiguous free space" and it still hangs. To be honest I haven't allowed to it hang at 23 percent for more than one hour.The CD is not the issue as I've tried both Kubuntu and Ubuntu installers with the same result.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Installer Doesn't See Windows 7 ?

Apr 6, 2010

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 on my laptop, then shrunk my partition and set aside some free space for Ubuntu. When I went to install Ubuntu, however, it told me that no operating systems had been detected on the system. I ignored this message and just installed Ubuntu on the free space, but when the installation was finished, GRUB failed to recognize Windows 7 as well and would only boot into Ubuntu.

After several attempts at getting GRUB to see W7, I eventually gave up and used my W7 CD to reinstall the Windows bootloader which, naturally, didn't detect Ubuntu and would only allow me to boot Windows.

I've tried messing around with my Windows partition a bit, but no matter what configuration I use, I can't seem to get the Karmic installer to see it. I've resorted to using WUBI for now, but I'd really like to have Ubuntu on its own partition in case something goes wrong with Windows; plus, I'd love to be able to use ext4 and GRUB. Anybody know how I can get around this issue?

I've used the same install CD on several other machines with Windows 7 and it recognized them just fine. It's only this one computer that's having the issue.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered Error Copying Files To HD

Jun 2, 2011

I have an Asus eee 1000. Was running Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix quite happily for some months until recently when I had some problems and decided to reinstall. Unfortunately that is when my real problems began. I have tried using various CD.s with Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook remix.

Both give the same error - The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 5] Input/output error

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.

I tried using an SD card to install - that also gave errors. I tried installing Windows as much as I hate it and, annoyingly, that installed without any problems whatsoever. Then I tried using the Alternate Install disc. That gave me a different error - did everything and apparently installed a "basic" system but failed to install software. Struggled to find an answer to that. How I can get Ubuntu 10.04 back on my netbook. As it stands at the moment I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I will have to install Windows or buy a new netbook - this seems preposterous!

I have seen that many people have this error and so it seems like some sort of bug. The only clue I had is that I did succeed in installing Ubuntu on my second 32 GB SD (the netbook has two (an 8 GB and a 32 GB). Unfortunately this SD appears much slower than the first so I erased it and went back to trying to get it on the 8 GB as before. Now it won't install on either - gives the same error. I do not believe that both my SD.s can be faulty and so I can only assume that somehow they both need erasing or formatting or something before I can reinstall.

Fedora Installation :: Installer Bug / Crash On Windows 7?

Oct 7, 2009

I currently run windows 7, I am interested in dual booting, upon burning the .iso to the disc using imgburn, I had a few problems with the installer when I ran the live disc, I'll assume it was personal causes, I googled several things for a simple solution, I went with using the Disk Manager in Windows 7 to shrink my current partition which I only have one which is running Win 7 on 140 GB's, using the shrink function in windows I unallocated 20 GB of that partition, I used this option because the option in F11's installer would not work at all. I rebooted from disc, loading the distro, and run the installer via desktop choose the use free space option and I got an error crash when it tries to execute this option which isnt the only time I got this error bug causing me to exit the installer, I copied the debug information in the details, I hope this is something simple because F11 isn't worth this much time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Doesn't Find Existing Windows XP

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to set up a dual boot of Ubuntu & Windows XP.I have two hard disks installed - sda is 80GB and has an existing Windows setup on it, sdb is my 160GB data storage disk.When I have installed Ubuntu on other machines, it has detected any exisiting OS's and offered to install Ubuntu alongside them.

However, this time Windows doesn't seem to be detected - it says 'no other operating systems found' and wants to install to my second (i.e. sdb) disk. I was intending for Ubuntu & Windows to sit side-by-side on the first hard disk.Although I've installed Ubuntu before, I'm a bit of a novice and I'm not sure how to achieve this - where am I going wrong?

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating USB Installer Hosed Windows Host?

Nov 5, 2010

My daughter tried to create a bootable USB-stick version of ubuntu by following the steps on this site, which included using the "universal USB installer" utility from pendrivelinux.com. She was on a windows notebook (I don't know which version, probably XP), and had saved the .iso to the desktop.She's generally pretty good about following directions, but now, with no CD or USB stick in place, the windows machine HD boots directly into the installer "Try ubuntu or Install ubuntu" screen, with no trace of windows! Naturally, her SO (it's his work machine) is more than a little upset.

Ubuntu Installation :: Opera 10.61 Windows Installer Doesn't Open

Dec 9, 2010

I downloaded wubi.exe from Opera 10.61. The file downloads ok, but then refuses to do anything when I click on the file.

I also switched to my IE version, and tried to run the file from there. Again, I get the hourglass symbol for a couple of seconds, then nothing.

I'm running Windows 98. I know, I should have a newer version, but finances can't manage that right now. In the meantime, is there a manual way to run the installer for wubi and get it to work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Installer Launch Error Message

Feb 1, 2011

I want to download and install Ubuntu to run alongside Windows 7 in a dual boot configuration. and downloaded the Windows Installer, but when I try to launch it I get an error message which I captured and attached to this post. What's really wierd is that once the message is displayed, I can't get rid of it. Even running the Task Manager to try to close the message doesn't work. I literally have to restart the computer to get rid of the message!

Am I suppose to be downloading the Windows Installer (Wubi) to a CD first where I run it from there? If so, the instructions don't mention that. Can't I download it directly to my C: drive and then run it from there? If so, why am I getting the error message?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Does Not See Windows Installation?

May 3, 2010

I have three physical drives:

Drive 0: Used for paging file in windows and general temp file storage
Drive 1: Media storage
Drive 2: Windows installation

When booting off the Ubuntu 10.04 disc and running the installer, it gets up to the partition step and doesn't find my Windows installation (for the automatic partitioning and such) and lists Drive 0 as the drive it will install to. I really want it to see my Windows install and create a partition on that same drive. Can anyone help me in getting the installer to see the Windows installation?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered An Eror Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Jan 17, 2010

"The installer encountered an eror copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 30] Read-only file system

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. ..."

Before I try changing CD drives, re-formatting the hard drive (again), or cleaning the CD drive, I must add that Xubuntu did open. I got rid of all traces of the previous operating system (WinME), and Xubuntu seems to work pretty well. The installation stopped at 41% of copying files. Should I aim for a finished installation or is this fine?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Installer Encountered An Error Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Dec 2, 2010

Each time, different methods, I get this about 3/4 of the way through:

The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:

[Errno 5] Input/output error

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.

The only possibility of those is the CD being bad. But I've used it before, recently, and it was fine. I will burn another one from my other computer and try, but it shouldn't be doing this.

Question: If I plan to only use Ubuntu on this computer (no dual boot) should I make the /,swap and /home partitions all Primary or some logical, or does it even matter?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't See Drives - Alternate Installer Doesn't Detect Windows - No Boot?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a Windows XP system, and wanted to install Ubuntu to a 100 GB XT3 partition on the same drive. I was told I could chainload Ubuntu from the NT Loader menu. I booted from a Ubuntu 10.04 CD and ran the installer. It didn't find any hard drives. On a hunch, I tried the 10.04 alternate installer CD. That DID find the hard drive and partitions. I had the installer make /dev/sda7 (the XT3 partition) the root. Installation proceeded smoothly, but then the installer told me it did not see any other OS's on my drive! Why? I directed the installer to place grub on /dev/sda7 instead of the MBR.

Per the instructions I was given, I used DD to copy the first 512 bytes of /dev/sda7 to the Windows primary partition (sda1) as bootloader.lnx. But the resulting file is empty, and it won't boot. I repeated the whole process - formatting, installing FOUR times, and same results. I have no idea where GRUB was installed. It is apparently not in the MBR, because I still have my normal Windows boot. I downloaded the 10.10 alternate installer and got the same exact results. Even switched from XT3 to XT4. After two weeks of this nonsense, I still have yet to see Linux boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: In Windows 7 (64 Bits) File System Installer - Cannot Detect Wireless Network

Nov 28, 2010

Ubuntu in Windows 7 (64 bits) File system installed using Wubi I got Ubuntu 10.04 LTS intalled using Wubi. That means Ubuntu resides inside Windows file / folder system. It also means Ubuntu does not have its own partition. Here is what I found out:

1) It cannot detect wireless network unlike Win 7 on this same laptop. However, when I plug in ethernet cable, it was able to detect it. Is there a fix this problem?

2) I cannot see Windows folders. How do access windows folder from Ubuntu side and vice versa?

3) I forgot to set the disk space for Ubuntu during install and I think the default is 17 GB.Would this cause me problems? If so, what do I need to do? How do I expand the disk space for Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Package Installer - Error No "update Manager", "aptitude" Or Anything Else

Sep 29, 2010

I've recently come across a problem concerning the Package Installer that's stoping me from installing; whenever I try to install Package Installer pops up an error stating that only one software management tool is allowed to run at once. However whenever this happens it's the only visible tool open. No "update manager", "aptitude" or anything else. I've tried looking through the list of processors, but I can't find this other mysterious management tool it's complaining about.

Ubuntu :: Package Installer Hangs After Install?

I just installed a .deb package using the Package Installer in Ubuntu. After closing the dialog that told me it finished installing, the "Package Installer" window was left grayed out and impossible to close (the 'x' button does nothing). How can I terminate this program? Why does Ubuntu not have a way to end processes that don't respond to input?

It does not seem to be listed in the system monitor.
