Debian Installation :: GRUB Installation On MBR Fails To Complete

May 10, 2013

I have downloaded the Wheezy DVD 1 and started the istallation process. The installation time is strangely very short in respect to the Squeeze release, anyway

The GRUB installation step fails. I terminated the installation without a bootloader and rebooted from DVD with the rescue boot option.

Now I asked for a console to try to manually install the bootloader but the following command:

# grub-install /dev/sda1
[where sda1 is my root partition]

gets the following message:

/bin/sh: grub-install: not found

What can I do?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Natty Fails - Kubuntu - Xubuntu Installed

Apr 29, 2011

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

Ubuntu Installation :: Cups Will Not Start On New Installation Of Natty?

May 17, 2011

I am unable to print on a new installation of Natty.The print configuration utility reports that no printing service is available. I have comfirmed that cups is installed and get a positive response to "whereis cupsd" When I attempt to start cups from the cl (service cups start) I receive the following response: start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.63" (uid=1000 pid=5577 comm="start cups ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init"))

There are no errors produced in the logs - either cups or syslog and if I turn apparmour to complain mode nothing improves: sudo aa-complain cupsd

I am aware of this post: [URL]... but since the workaround has no effect and in the absence of error messages I am not sure that it applies and cannot implement - and note that no print drivers are in play since I can't get cups to start.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Natty Narwhal Will Not Load Up Start Screen

Jul 29, 2011

My recently installed OS, keeps on displaying a GRUB menu instead of the normal screen and has an option of normal start up or ( I forgot what it's called but some sort of .. ) Fixing Option. It has worked before but yesterday the error wouldn't stop coming up after it randomly crashed while the computer was working. I haven't tried it again today, but will do soon. The first option of normal boot up said something like 0x01002 is in use and didn't load.

The second one occasionly came up with an option for normal boot after it had 'Fixed' it. But most times it would come up with some terminal like dialogue, then stop and not load, don't know if it crashed or what ? Hope this is enough information for you, but as I'm only 12, I don't have a clue what to do, except the obvious option of rebooting again and again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Fails To Complete DHCP Transaction?

Feb 7, 2010

I know there are hundreds of similar questions about suspend on Ubuntu, but none of the fixes they use work for me. This bug is the only thing that stops me from using Ubuntu - I put computer to sleep (suspend to ram) and after resume I have no network. The only way to get network back is to restart.

Looking at the logs, it seems that NetworkManager starts, finds the device and then fails to complete DHCP transaction. I don't know what causes the problem, probably this line: "via-rhine: Reset not complete yet. Trying harder." Does anyone know possible reason for this? Here is the log:

Feb 7 14:30:21 tulskiy-desktop NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0) starting connection 'Auto eth0'

Ubuntu Networking :: OpenVPN Woes - TLS Handshake Fails To Complete Within 60 Seconds?

Oct 19, 2010

I have OpenVPN set up on my server at home to allow me into my home network when I'm away from home. When I set it up, I tested it using my friend's wifi so I know it works on a local geographic scale.Now I'm away from home, the TLS handshake fails to complete within 60 seconds. I assume it's timing out, as I can tracepath to the server on port 1194 successfully.From reading the OpenVPN documentation, I thought that adding "tls-timeout=120" to the client's config file would double the time allowed,but the handshake still fails with the same error message:

Tue Oct 19 10:45:17 2010 us=930956 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
Tue Oct 19 10:45:17 2010 us=931012 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

Why is the option not being read correctly from the file - does it need to be in the server's config file also?

Fedora Installation :: 11 Installation X Fails To Start

Ubuntu :: Boot Fails After Upgrading To Natty?

May 2, 2011

I was using Maverick, I performed upgrade to Natty today morning and rebooted and it was working fine. Then I turned off my PC and left home.

Now in the evening when I'm trying to boot nothing happens, just black screen. Nothing happens after that.

Though I can boot by selecting "Previous Version" but can't boot normally. Though I was surprised that even after selecting "previous version" I was booted in to Natty(I guess so, as the UI is Unity not GNOME).

But can't boot using the Kernel that's listed first in my Menu.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To Natty Fails To Boot (RAID5 Array)

May 20, 2011

My box has a raid5 array (mdadm) with everything in it (/boot and /) but swap that is actually spread across the 4 drives. I had ubuntu 10.10 installed (amd64) with grub1, when I upgraded to natty (11.04) it automatically installed grub2. Well boot fails, it always goes to grub rescue no matter what happens. I've installed and reinstalled grub2, and boot always fails with:

"error: file not found".

In grub rescue I can see that md0 is actually available, an "ls" to (md0)/boot succeeds but the strange thing is that an "ls" to (md0)/boot/grub prints nonsense, as does an "ls" to (md0)/boot/usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/. When I try to load the required modules for boot (linux raid etc) in grub I also always get a "file not found error" (I fsck'd md0, which says everything's fine). I have installed the latest version of grub2 and executed grub-install in all four drives.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Rt2860 Fails To Resume After Suspend (11.04, Natty Narwhal)

May 6, 2011

I've been happily using this lappie with LTS but wanted to try out 11.04. It looks great but wireless has been an issue:

1. No wireless during install
2. Had to manually blacklist the rt2860pci etc modules
3. Wireless still not resuming after suspend

05:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2860
Subsystem: Ralink corp. Device 2790
Physical Slot: 0-2
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18


The latter manual mod improved things slightly but still no cigar

Ubuntu :: Skype Does Not Start In Natty?

May 26, 2011

Today in the morning I did update my system and my skype does not start anymore. Thiugh I am not sure if this is related to my new update(May 26), because it was in the morning and I didn't see if my skype was on/off. But definitely it doesn't work now. The first thing I tried was to uninstall and then reinstalling skype. It opens but when it tries to load the user(mine is set to automatically load user when skype starts) it just shuts down. I tried logging out. rebooting and shutting down my laptop. nothing works. And it used to work before without any problems.

I am running fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04, and skype beta 2.2

General :: Intermittent Internet With Ubuntu Natty - Connections To Particular Websites Will Start Timing Out

Aug 28, 2011

I'm having a bit of Internet trouble with a fresh install of Ubuntu Natty and I haven't been able to track down the problem. I have my desktop running over a wireless network, which connects without fail. Somewhat frequently, however, connections to particular websites will start timing out (google, facebook, stackoverflow, us ubuntu archive, etc.). I'm also having a strange issue where my home page [URL] is redirecting to [URL].

Initially I thought it might be an issue with Comcast DNS, so I updated the router to use OpenDns servers. When that didn't work I started to try accessing some of the problematic sites through my laptop (which is using the same router) and they all connect without problem. The issue seems to be with my Ubuntu install, but I'm not sure where to look.

EDIT After doing some further digging, this is starting to look like a DNS issue. My home page appears the resolve to an incorrect ip address when the redirect issue occurs. Still not sure how to track down the problem, however.
