Ubuntu Installation :: Changes To Menu.lst Do Not Reflect Correct Partition?

May 19, 2010

I have Ubuntu Lucid, but this problem has been around since Feisty for me. Here's what happens: My menu.lst file has the following line in it:

title Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-22-generic
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.32-22-generic root=UUID=de57202b-4cfd-4de3-8b3c-92c2267eb10a ro quiet splash vga=773
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.32-22-generic

Upon any kernel updates, or uninstalling old kernels that I no longer need, the hd(0,2) gets replaced by hd(0,0), which leads to not being able to boot, unless I manually reset the hd(0,0) back to hd(0,2).

Ubuntu :: Natty Kickoff Menu Does Not Reflect New App Install

May 6, 2011

I just installed Kubuntu, but whenever I install an application or remove one, the Kickoff Menu doesn't update to reflect this. The strange thing is, I can actually click on apps I supposedly uninstalled and they still launch, for example I replaced libreoffice with openoffice, and the menu still only shows libreoffice...

Ubuntu Installation :: Partition Table Not Correct?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 to an Asus EeePC 1000H (160GB HDD). (I know it will be slow because of Mutter/i945). The usb stick boots just fine but when it comes to the partition part it goes wrong.

I have 3 partitions:Windows 7 (50GB)
This will be Ubuntu Netbook (50GB)

But the partition manager just shows 160GB of unallocated space. I have tried to reboot and create the partitions with other software (even with GParted LiveCD) but the result is the same.

Ubuntu Installation :: "No Root File System Is Defined - Correct This From The Partitioning Menu"

Dec 23, 2010

I have installed ubuntu onto a 64 bit Windows 7 machine using Wubi. [Note: I thought that I was downloading 10.10, but the installer said it was 10.04] When Wubi gave be a choice of which drive to install on, I choose my second drive (B) My Windows 7 resides on (C)

The install seemed to take a long time, but I think that was because it was downloading the whole operating system install files. When it was finished downloading it asked me if I wanted to reboot, I selected yes (reboot). Then the boot screen gave me the choice: Windows or Ubuntu. I choose Ubuntu and then I get the error:

"No root File system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu."

Damn that Ubuntu splash screen was so beautiful and I thought I was home free. I have read a few threads here and other places on line. I have read that I may have to partition the drive. Was my mistake in choosing the B: instead of the C: drive? If I partition can I partition from inside windows using the computer management software it provides? Do I need to partition at all? Or can I just move the installed files to the C: Are the files movable? In the ubuntu directory I see a file: uninstall-wubi.exe. Should I use this and try a reinstall onto the C:

Fedora Installation :: Update Media's Repo Information To Reflect Some Of Updated Packages

May 13, 2011

I am creating custom install media using the Fedora Core 14 DVD as a base and I have gathered all of the packages and their dependencies I require using the yumdownloader command.I made sure to download the @core group along with the ones listed above. The problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to update the media's repo information to reflect some of the updated packages I have downloaded. So when I go to install on the device, it's saying it can't read/open a certain package and you can see that it's looking for an older version because I'm guessing its repo is telling anaconda that this is the specific version to look for. I'm looking for a way to "update" the repo found on the installation media.

Debian Multimedia :: Playing From ISO - Correct Menu Settings

Jul 17, 2010

I have some DVD's that I've saved to my comp as an ISO, in Ubuntu they would play fine in Movie Player or VLC, but I've just tried to play one on Debain Lenny and I have the following issues.

Movie Player:
Will play the video but wont bring up the main menu so that I can select which episode that I want. It won't even skip to the next one, it just starts playing the first.

So I then though I'd down the trusted ol' VLC. VLC brings up the main menu but I can't select any thing. It just sits there and playing the menu screen for a bit and my mouse clicks seem to have know effect (except double clicking to change to full screen). Then it starts playing the first one, if I try to skip it goes back to the main menu and starts all over again.
This particular issue I sometimes had in Ubuntu with Movie Player (depending on the ISO) but VLC would still play it fine.

Just got VLC to run the menu correctly by doing the following:
File => Open Capture Device => File Tab => Browse to the file, select it. => Click OK.
I don't really want to have to do this every time I want to watch a video. Does any one know of a setting that will do this when ever I click on the ISO to play it?

Ubuntu :: Grub.cfg Does Not Get Read Correct - Auto-removes Characters At Boot Menu

Mar 10, 2010

I have a problem with GRUB 2 that I hope someone here can help me fix. Every time I boot I get an error because GRUB deletes that last part of the initrd line in /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

So this:


Becomes this (notice the missing "c" at the end):


And the windows part is also broken:


If I add an extra character at the end of the line it get removed instead and then it works. But only until next time the grub.cfg is auto updated. The error is only there when booting. Reading the file every character is in there.

General :: Correct Partition Size Not Reported After Resizing With Gparted?

Jan 11, 2010

I removed an ntfs partition I had in my HD and then resized my home partition with gparted to occupy all the available space. The resulting partition is supposed to be 129GB, and gparted/partition magic see that size. But the system does not, and all tools report the old partition size and the same free space I had before resizing.

SUSE / Novell :: Correct Amount Of Free Space For The Root Partition?

Oct 4, 2010

I recently tried a frugal/poor mans install of knoppix that I placed in a folder in the root partition of /home (hda7) in opensuse 11.3. I decided to delete the folder and contents. The hard drive was busy for several minutes and after it was finished, I checked the disk usage and found that / was at 97% capacity, up from what was 10gig of free space. I could not find any traces of the deleted folder or its contents, so I used puppy linux and ran e2fsck on the / partition. Puppy linux reported 1.9gig free space and opensuse reported .5gig free space. My concern is if the deleted folder is taking up space in the root partition that I can not locate and why the difference in reported disk space usage in hda7. Also, if more packages are installed, where are they placed (/ or /home)?

Installation :: Dual CentOS - Windows 7 Boot - Had To Delete CentOS Partition And No Grub Menu

Sep 19, 2010

3 partitions (in order): Windows 7, CentOS and shared data partition.

I need to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (c:windowswinsxs seems to be something not easily remedied).

GParted didn't work in moving things around (bad sector) so I wiped out its partition (# 2 out of 3) and I was able to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (I can reinstall CentOS easily and not much work lost).

Except ... no more grub menu (unsurprising). This incantation does allow me to boot into Windows 7.

Is there any way of rebuilding the grub menu short of reinstalling CentOS (5.5)?

Server :: Does RES In Top Reflect Any Shared Memory?

Apr 20, 2010

I am trying to troubleshoot an Apache/Mysql server that once every few days falls over due to memory starvation. I thought I had tuned my httpd.conf file with relativley small MaxClients and so on, but then noticed some unusual RES values in top while monitoring.

In short, `top -b -n1 -u apache` shows that I have 28 httpd processes. their VIRT is ~300MB for each process (I understand this is shared), and the RES ~50MB for each. I thought this wasn't shared. Is this true? I just noticed 2 of the processes jump to 1.2g. If RES represents non-shared memory then concievably 1.2g x 28 processes would be a problem on an 8GB server.

Ubuntu Security :: Changing Permissions Of Files To Reflect Their New Folder?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a shared folder set up that allows all users on the computer to have access to all the music on the computer. In the folder with all the music the group 'music' has permission to add and delete files and all users are members of 'music'. This should allow all users to have complete access to these files, however, when I add files to the folder they retain their original permissions and do not take on the permissions of the folder. I could change the permissions of the files to reflect the folder every time I add a cd. But that is annoying. What I am wondering is if there is any way to make files automatically reflect the permissions on the folder they are moved into.

Ubuntu Servers :: Configure The Server To Reflect The New Settings Of The New Service Provider?

Jun 4, 2011

I am a newbie to linux and running ubuntu server 10.10 (no gui), I had it configured with a fixed ip address and all was fine till I changed internet poroviders and got issued with a new router.

I am trying to configure the server to reflect the new settings of the new service provider. here are the contents of /etc/network/interfaces

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

Just so I got this right can someone tell me if I am right here. address is the IP I wish to give to my server statically. and gateway is the ip of the router. When I try to ping the router I get

Ping ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destrination Host unreachable
When I try to ping the internet i get :


Is there anyone that can shed some light on where my problem may be. As i said before I got the new router I had been working with the server no problem.

Ubuntu :: Mount TrueCrypt Volume To Recover Macrium Reflect Image?

Feb 28, 2011

I have created a TrueCrypt volume, mounted it in Windows, and created an image file for my OS partition using Macrium Reflect (free version). I made a Rescue CD for Macrium, and the setup works great on unencrypted files, but I have no way to mount the TrueCrypt volume, while booted to the Macruim rescue CD. I have Puppy Linux 4.3.1 on a CD, and can boot to it. I'm a beginner's beginner, however, and I haven't figured out how to install TrueCrypt with Puppy Linux running. Getting the Macrium recovery program to run with the TrueCrypt volume mounted looks even more complicated, and I don't know if it's even possible. I want to be able to recover my laptop from a drive failure, as well as protect my OS from bad programs or malware. Macrium reflect does this job well, because it:

1. is free

2. only writes the used space of the system partition to the image file, and also compresses the data, resulting in a relatively small file. (~ 50 percent of the used space on the OS partition)

3. retains drive alignment for a pre-aligned partition.

However, I wish to keep my backup partitions encrypted to protect my privacy. TrueCrypt does an excellent job of this because it:

1. is free

2. encrypts the OS and all data on the computer.

3. protects all backup data.

I like the fact that Puppy Linux can be loaded into memory, so I only need to boot from removable media to work on my OS partition. I understand there is a portable Ubuntu OS, and perhaps this would be a better platform for my goal? Is there a way to combine Linux on removable media, with Macrium Reflect, and recover an image from a TrueCrypt volume?

OpenSUSE :: OpenOffice File Dialog Does Not Reflect Changes Of New Documents?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Has No Menu.lst - ESC To Grub Menu / Solve This?

Feb 15, 2010

9.10 has no menu.lst file and hitting ESC to does not bring up the grub menu. How can we set bootup options or boot an alternate kernel? I would really like to set the resolution at boot time so that my console (Ctrl-Alt-F5, for example) has 80 columns instead of 40. (What a stupid default, gigantic Commodore-64-like text!) It would also be nice if the Login screen could be set to the resolution that I want.

In previous releases, there were ways to do this. In 9.10, I haven't been able to figure out how.

Is there a document explaining all of the radical changes?
