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 :: Lost Power During 10.10 Upgrade?

Oct 26, 2010

Was upgrading from 10.4 to 10.10 using the Update Manager. All files downloaded and I think it was about 1/3 of the way through the Installation when I lost power. Now when it boots I have a purple screen with no login box.

Is there a way to restart the upgrade?

Ubuntu :: Lost Power During Lucid Lynx Installation

May 1, 2010

While leaving my laptop to install the upgrades, I hadn't noticed how the power cord had slipped loose. When I came back my computer must have shut off due to battery loss. When I booted up my computer again, I couldn't boot up Ubuntu under any of the kernels, -20,-19, etc. I get cryptic messages such as "unable to enumerate USB device on port 2," device not accepting messages," and "device descriptor read." i definitely intend to recover my data. I had been upgrading from 9.10 to the latest version of lucid lynx.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Applications Because Of Upgrading?

Jan 18, 2010

Recently I updated my Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.10, by performing a clean install and not-formatting my home partition (set it as home mount point for the 8.10).At first I didn't realize any changes in the desktop environment, my compiz setting still doing fine (except for the background set for each desktop). And then I wanted to set the image, but to found out that there is no more shortcut to my compiz setting (through the System > Preferences menu).I checked the Appearance menu, and since I clicked on one of the options available, my compiz feature is no more to be available. The desktop is set to default 8.10 feature.I checked my other pre-installed application; such as Amarok, Thunderbird, etc. They all are gone.My question is, how can I get them back?This question is important, because from now on I'm going to perform the sequential upgrade (8.10 > 9.04 > 9.10), if I'm going to loose those application on every upgrade phase, then I'd just upgrade first before solving my problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Exaile Tag Editor Lost After Upgrading To 9.10?

Jan 8, 2010

My exaile tag editor lost after upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10. I had been using 9.04. My exaile used to have a tag editor which allows me to edit tags for multiple files simultaneously, and fill tags by patterns of file names. I used to highlight songs in the playlist, and then right click, there would show "Information" and when I click on it, it's the tag editor.After the upgrade, I am not sure if I am missing some plugins or whatever, the tag editor is no long here. Now, I only see "Properties" when I right click, which only allows me to edit one song at a time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Wlan0 After Upgrading To 10.04?

Nov 4, 2010

I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 after not using linux on my PC for a few months. After the upgrade, everything worked fine except my wireless card no longer works. It seems to have disappeared from my available interfaces. Here's the output from lspci:

$ lspci | grep Wireless
04:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT3092 Wireless 802.11n 2T/2R PCIe
...and iwconfig:


I've been through posts about similar problems that did fixes using things like blacklist and modprobe, but none of these worked. I've searched the RaLink webpages for more up to date linux drivers but found nothing that worked - I downloaded the RT3090_LinuxSTA_V2.3.1.6 driver and followed the instructions to try and build it, but this didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Prevent The Sleep State From Being Lost On Power Failure?

May 17, 2010

When I tell the computer to go to sleep and there is a power failure the sleep state is lost. Is there a way to prevent this? I already know about hibernate and I'm using it but sleep is faster and there is no complete loading of the computer (BIOS, Grub and so on) it just goes directly into the desktop. As far as I know the sleep state is done when everything is in RAM and the computer is turned off but the RAM sticks still receive power. Is this true?

P.S. Can this be done with hibernate and SSD drives? As far as I can tell from what I've read it will be the same but with no state loss. Is this true?

Ubuntu Servers :: Lost Months Of Data After Power Failure?

Nov 13, 2010

Running Ubuntu headless server 9.10 with a RAID 1 on ext3. After a power failure (UPS power button was hit accidentally), I logged into the system via ssh and found that I had lost all data since my last reboot, which was 4 months ago. It was as if I had a perfect snapshot of my machine from 4 months ago. Everything, database files, logs, all report as if the machine had been off for 4 months. Fortunately, I have quality backups of all my data so I am able to recover, but I have never had such a problem before and I cannot figure out what happened.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Lost When Using Battery Power?

Dec 18, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition on a Dell Mini 9 - worked around a few wireless issues on setup and connectivity has been fine, but now I'm suddenly losing wifi when I unplug my AC adapter. It still shows me as connected, but when I try to view web pages in Chromium, it will load pages for a few seconds, and then suddenly cuts out - though it still looks like it's trying to load the page.

It's the same if I boot on battery power - it will keep trying to connect to wifi but won't until I plug in the adapter. I'm assuming this probably has something to do with my power management preferences in battery mode, but I'm still pretty new to Ubuntu, and I'm not sure how to fix this. I've played with the options in power management, but I have a feeling there has to be more. Can anyone help me? This has been really frustrating.

Fedora :: DVI Output Lost Upgrading From Fc9 To 13?

Aug 9, 2010

I've just upgraded from fc9 to fc13 on an Acer Veriton L460. Under fc9, I connected the monitor via the digital interface (allowing the analog monitor input to be connected to a "headless" old fc5 box I can't quite retire yet).

When booting the fc13 distro DVD, the display when black shortly after the boot started. Changing to the analog o/p of the PC restored the display allowing fc13 to be installed (obviously replacing fc9). Sadly, booting the new install is the same: no DVI output; I have to use analog.

Ubuntu Networking :: Alfa AWUS036H Adjust Power - Unknown Transmit Power Information

Jun 21, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit and I purchased a new ALFA AWUS036H wireless card. I would like to know if this "1Watt" wireless card is configured for full power. iwlist wlan0 txpower results:

wlan0 unknown transmit-power information. Current Tx-Power=27 dBm (501 mW). It appears to me that I should be able to increase the power. "iwpriv wlan0 highpower 1" does not work. Do I need to patch the new default driver that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit with the aircrack one following these directions:[URL]...? Monitor mode and a injection tests seem to work fine with the driver I have installed.

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce4-power-manager Doesn't React To Power Button / Fix It?

Jun 4, 2010

I use Squeeze with Xfce. My problem is that recently (after the xfce updates) the xfce power manager doesnt react to the power button - it is set to suspend. I dont have gnome-power manager or anything like it running.
If i reboot the computer, the power button will work but if i suspend and resume, it doesnt work again.
The computer is built on an Asus M3N78-VM mobo (2GB RAM/Athlon3200+ single core).

acpi_listen detects the button press.

Any thoughts?

Hardware :: Power Monitoring - Power Quality - Voltage Changes And Outages

Apr 4, 2011

I'm looking for any power monitoring devices for Linux to allow monitoring power quality, voltage changes, and outages. This would be for North American three phase power system. I want to have this data fed live to my own program. It should be something much better than just jury-rigging a circuit to fee the power waveform into 2 or 3 audio cards.

Ubuntu :: Power Profile/power Management App?

May 28, 2010

On the last release, I had this app installed where I could pick my power profile. I could use power conservatively, and performance would suffer a bit, but longer batt life,or I could have it automatically detect, or I could have the apps use all the power they want and then some. I'm looking to reinstall that app. What was the name of it?I can't remember, and so far, can't find.

PC is a AMD athlon64 3300+ 2.4ghz SiS graphics

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Goes Down After Sometime

Apr 24, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my friends pc. However, after about half or nearly one hour, the box goes out of power and the monitor hangs with the same screen just before the power down. And we have to restart by first powering down the UPS. It is a DUAL BOOT system with WINDOWS 7 and it never happens in there. What is annoying me now is that my friend says, "This is the problem of Ubuntu". I then installed Opensuse 11.2 but again the same thing happens with linux and not WIndows 7. Here are the specs of his system:

Ubuntu :: The Installation Started, But Then Lost The Internet Connection, And The Installation Stopped?

Dec 17, 2010

I recently bougt an Asus N61DA with Windows 7. I decided to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, so I made the Ubuntu CD, just like it said. Then I inserted the CD and restarted the computer. I started the installer (ubuntu 10.10 64-bit) and chose the option where it says "install ubuntu alongside other operating systems", or something like that. So, the installation started, but then I lost the internet connection, and the installation stopped.I re-connected the computer, but the installation still wouldn't continue. I restarted the computer and then nothing happened. I've restarted it several times, but still nothing happens. I've inserted the Windows recovery CD, but it doesn't work

Ubuntu Installation :: Using The Power PC Port To PS3 Of 9.10?

Feb 13, 2010

For various reasons I have decided that it would be helpful to use my PS3 as a backup computer for homework and basic word processing. I looked up some instructions on installing Ubuntu on the PS3 and followed them exactly. I'm using the PS3 port, I put it on a clean disk, I already partitioned and installed the OS (by that I mean, I used the install other OS function on the XMB) When I run the OS it brings me to the live CD with the penguins, but after I hit enter, the screen just goes black. Occasionally it has given me the initramfs screen, but only sometimes.

I also noticed, on the first screen, before I hit enter there is a "ps3av_send_cmd_pkt" error. I have looked all over google for a fix, but have found little help. I am using the Power PC port to PS3 of 9.10.
