Ubuntu :: Installing Causes Windows To Restart Repeatedly During Startup

Aug 11, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu (the full version). I liked Wubi a lot, but that's because I just had to press down and enter during startup. After uninstalling it, I went to the full version, but that's been giving me more trouble than Wubi, lol.

First, it replaced my Windows Boot Manager with GRUB (which IMO sucks because it takes like 15 seconds to load the menu and it lags when you want to press an arrow key). Second, it screwed up my Windows (the first time I started up Windows I got like 50 lines of errors and after that I had to do the disk check thing but now it works). I use Vista x32, and when I try to boot into Windows it gets to the (C)Microsoft with the green loading bars thing and after about 5-10 seconds my computer randomly (without warning, the screen just turns black) restarts. Goes back to the BIOS menu, a full restart.

My first priority is to get Windows fully running without restarts during boot time. Then I'd like to use Windows boot manager to start Ubuntu (I checked with EasyBCD, Ubuntu doesn't show in WBM.

Oh BTW, dual-booting ubuntu 10.04 and WinVista SP2.

Ubuntu :: Emeral Themes Dissapear On Startup - Restart / What To Do?

Mar 8, 2011

I have recently reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10 with Compiz and emerald themes. I've replaced the default window manager in Compiz with emerald and everything works fine until I shut down and restart. The I have no window theme at all. If I go to the window decorator and reinstall the default manager and then once more enter emerald --replace everything is fine until the next time I restart. I guess that I could just leave everything running but that's not the kind of guy I am. can you give me a hand here?

Ubuntu Servers :: Script To Restart And Bypass Password On Startup?

Feb 7, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 as a web/ftp/etc server. I like to work on stuff from remote locations and have set it up to be accessed it with the external IP address by my laptop.The problem is that if I'm at a remote location and tell it to restart, when it boots up it won't log me on unless I enter the password, but I can't remote access it until I'm logged in.So, is there a command or script that I can run that will tell it to restart and bypass entering a login password?I'm only looking for something to bypass it ONCE per command/script, NOT to disable my password.

Ubuntu :: Windows Vista Gone - When Restart - Does Not Give Me The Option For Windows

Oct 14, 2010

I believe i no longer have Vista. I had installed 10.04 side by side with Vista. Now that we have 10.10 i wanted to do a fresh installation on my laptop. I wanted to do the same thing, install it side by side so what i did is i installed gparted and tried to erase/delete ubuntu 10.04 and leave windows on it. From what i remember, i did just that. I restarted my laptop and windows didnt come up...i got a grub error...i decided then to install ubuntu 10.10. i selected to install ubuntu side by side again with vista. During the installation, i received an error about a partition...i made a few clicks...after it was installing and it went smoothly.

Now when i restart my laptop...it does not give me the option for windows....how do i know if i still have windows on my laptop? According to Gparted i dont have it anymore...

General :: Restart Mandatory After Installing Updates?

Jul 28, 2010

On Windows, 99% of the time you have to restart the server after installing updates. In my brief experience with Linux, its never told me I had to. Do you ever have to restart after installing any for Linux? I'm using redhat specifically if that matters.

Fedora :: After Installing Updates Unable To Restart Computer

Apr 1, 2010

I recently updated my software (on Fedora 13) and after the updates had finished installing, it said that the computer required a restart. I noticed that I could no longer type anything into the search bar on Firefox without an error message appearing. So I thought it best to restart the computer then. When restarting, the loading screens took much longer than usual. The guitar pick shape that fills with white was stalling around the top. (I know, I love my complete comprehension of the problem too.) I pressed escape, and was given this message on a black screen.

Welcome to Fedora
Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
starting udev:udevd-work[517]: '/sbin/modprobe-b pci: v000014E4d0000170Csv00001028sd000001F1bc02sc00i00' unexpected exit with status 0x0009
setting hostname (my computers name):

This is as far as I can get. I press Esc again, and I see the completed fedora logo, but nothing else happens. I press Esc again, and I come back to the previous screen, and this time there are two of the above messages. My computer is fairly old (four years), so I understand if the hard drive is deteriorating. I would like to have use of my computer back, but at the very least I would like to recover some files that I have not backed up.

OpenSUSE Install :: Black Screen (11.2) On Restart After Installing Some Items

Nov 11, 2010

A few glitches aside, 11.2 has been very good. Today I installed realcrypt. While in yast, I noticed some other items were set to install. I accepted them along with realcrypt. After the install, clicking the -more applications- button (gnome) did not display the menu, just the mouse wait indicator. After a few tries, I decided to restart. Clicking shutdown did not present the normal menu, but instead instantly shutdown. On restart, I noticed 3-ish orphaned inode(?) messages. After boot completes I'm left with a black screen.I'm running 11.2 Gnome raid-1. The raid array appears to be fine. It emails status on boot, and I received those emails (via google) on the my laptop. I can boot to runlevel 1, so the question is, once there where do I look for cause / fix.

Ubuntu :: Won't Start Unless Restart From Windows

Sep 21, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.10(I know what you're thinking, but I have a thing for Betas) and everything was going well until I installed an update calles Grub-PC, which I don't know exactly what it does but it said it was important. Now ubuntu won't start unless I first restart from Windows. If I try to turn on the pc and start ubuntu it restarts itself. I can only read something about NTFS, it only shows the text for less than a second than it restarts.

Ubuntu :: Grub Error 21 Only On Windows Restart

Dec 18, 2010

I've been working with ubuntu now for quite some time. My computer loads grub fine on a cold state boot. It loads fine on my 3 linux based systems when they restart. It gives me a grub 21 error when I choose restart in windows 7. I'm forced to press the power button, and turn it back on- not a huge deal, as its a 100% fix. I'm already booting with rootnoverify, and have checked the command on boot to make sure it was the right grub menu that was installed. I also couldn't find a topic with a problem like this, most were just grub not working at all after install or similar.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Windows 7 But It Wont Show Up When Restart?

Mar 21, 2011

I have an ASUS 1005HA. Recently installed a new hard drive and made 3 partitions. One for Windows 7, one for Ubuntu, one for storage. I installed windows 7 first. Then, I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook remix. It loads all the way to the end, tells me to take the CD out when its done, but when I restart, its like nothing happened. Windows 7 boots straight up to itself.

I tried redoing the GRUB loader while using the CD, but that didnt work either. So, how do I make it so I can see both OS? Because windows is running superior right now on my netbook, and I don't like that. But I need it for work.

Ubuntu Servers :: Disable X Startup After Installing Desktop?

Jan 2, 2010

I've just installed the ubuntu server system on an old PC i'm going to be using as, you guessed it, a server. Because I like (some) graphical tools while configuring I also installed ubuntu-desktop on it afterwards.

The only problem is that I want to keep ubuntu-desktop, but that I don't want to boot into the (memory consuming) graphical interface by default.Does anyone know how to do that? (set the default boot to command-prompt). Also, does anyone have tips on packages I c an safely remove to clear up space and memory? (Like: openoffice, Evolution,Rhythmbox etc. are very obvious, but maybe some more hidden services and alike? Networkmanager e.g.?)

Ubuntu :: Command Prompt On Startup After Installing Freevo?

I've just done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 and installed Freevo on it from the Medibuntu repositories. After rebooting I get a shell window with no frame in the top-left corner of the screen with the Ubuntu loading screen still taking up the rest of the screen. Typing 'startx' gave a error that there is already a display running on the port.

General :: Windows - Hibernate: Restart Instead Of Shutting Down

Jul 24, 2011

I dual boot Ubuntu and Windows and sometimes I just want to switch between the partitions without loosing the state of the OS I was currently working with. Currently to do that I just hibernate that OS and, when the computer turns off, I restart it and select the correct partition.

I do not really want to have to press the on button again every time I want to switch between partitions. I figure that there must be a way to make the hibernate action restart instead of shutting down.

How do I make the hibernate action restart instead of shutting down on:

Windows, or Ubuntu

P.S. It is more important to me that I can do this in Ubuntu than Windows (because of the way I use the partitions) therefore if one answer says the Ubuntu way and the other says the Windows way then I will mark the Ubuntu one as the answer and give the Windows one an upvote and a big thankyou.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - Wireless Asking For WPA Key Repeatedly

Mar 16, 2010

I'm a new Ubuntu user! I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10, straight from the homepage. All went fine, everything appears to be running smoothly.. but I can't get the wireless working! All it does is ask for the WPA/WPA2-Personal key repeatedly. I know I've got the code right, as I've typed it whilst "Show Characters" is on multiple times. Every time I enter it, the networking icon looks as though it's working, and then after a moment it'll ask me again.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Startup X After Installing Fglrx?

Sep 14, 2010

I am running Suse 11.3 with two monitors and two video controllers -- an ATI controller on the motherboard and a separate PCI ATI board. After some startup problems, I got the onboard video working properly with the "nomodeset" command on boot, but the other display is blank. Thinking it might be the driver, I downloaded the fglrx driver (via YAST2). But now when the system boots it never opens X windows. I looked at the Xorg.0.log file and I'm getting a bunch of WW errors and then a seg fault.

The file /usr/share/doc/packages/fglrx/installer.html says I can uninstall the driver using the fglrx-uninstall.sh script, but I can't find such a script. How do I disable (uninstall, remove, get rid of) the fglrx driver and get back to where I was? I'm dead in the water if I can't get X going.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Trying To Start And Then Closing Repeatedly?

I keep getting "Starting File Manager" flashing on and off on the bottom tool bar in Ubuntu 10.04. The icons on my desktop keep blinking on and off and I can't access any folders!

Slackware :: Skype Begins To Startup Bombs After Installing Inkscape

May 27, 2011

I'm getting the following errors when I try to start skype:


I installed Skype from the slacky.it package HERE. Everything was fine, all was stable and rosey, until I installed Inkscape today. I hadn't even noticed it wasn't running until someone got a hold of me and said they were trying to get a hold of me. When I went to fire it up, thinking that I had somehow inadvertently closed it, it sprang right up for just a second and then was gone. Same thing - three times in row. So I tried starting if from the command line and got that error. I can start it from the comman line as root, with the following error:


The deps for Inkscape that I installed, and in the following order, were all from the 13.1 repo, and the ones I didn't already have installed were:

Server :: Svn Over Ssh Repeatedly Asking For Password?

Aug 9, 2010

Im running Ubuntu 10.04 with the latest updates and im connecting from windows xp using tortisesvn.When I do svn+ssh//Connection_name/var/svn/repoI can connect just fine. The problem is that im asked 3 times for my password before the folder will display. I guessing its 3 times because the repo is 3 levels deep. In tortise if I click a folder to go another level deeper im asked for my password again. "Connection_name" is the name of the onnection profile I setup in Putty which is used by tortise via plink. I tried setting up a auth key but that didnt help either. If I use putty to open up the "connection_name" ssh connection, im only asked once for my password and can operate as normally expected.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless No Longer Connecting And Repeatedly Asking For WEP Key

Jul 28, 2010

I downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu yesterday (10.04 LTS) for the first time and it worked like a treat, with the Internet conencting immediately without any problems. However, this morning I turned on my laptop and despite seemingly connecting to the network, Ubuntu won't conenct to the Internet. It is also repeatedly asking for me to re-input the WEP Key despite it being correct and always automatically inputted.

I've been looking around for hours on the Internet to try and find a solution but to no avail, even though people do seem to experience similar problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Losing Wired Connection Repeatedly?

Nov 1, 2010

I did a clean install of 10.10 just under a week ago and something is really wrong with my wired connection. I keep loosing all connectivity and have to connect again from the panel app. After that, every thing works again for about 30 to 60 seconds and the the connection goes again. No lost connection notification pop up or anything like that, but i cannot browse the web or download upgrades while the connection is gone.

Then the really weird part. Sometimes my connection works just fine. On some boots everything is fine for a long time (hours?) but then the problem comes back. My network card is an Intel 82567LF-2 and it uses the e1000e kernel module. I dual boot to Windows Server 2008 R2 and there I have full connectivity all the time.
