Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Gobi Loader Fails On 10.04 RC - Worked On 9.10?
Apr 26, 2010
[10.04]-Gobi Loader Fails on 10.04 RC, Worked on 9.10? I was using a program called "Gobi Loader" to manually setup my Qualcomm 9212 3g internal USB modem on my Verizon Wireless Gateway LT2016U NetBook. Gobi Loader program loads the modem's firmware so it is usable by Ubuntu OS. This worked fine on Ubuntu 9.10, but on Ubuntu 10.04 RC when I run Gobi Loader it just hangs. I've Googled for hours and have not found a solution to this issue. For me it is a big issue as in Ubuntu 10.04, my 3g access is not working. (I'm paying Verizon Wireless $60 dollars a month for 3g access my Ubuntu 10.04 can't use.)
The only option I see now is to install Windows(R) XP, then reinstall Ubuntu 10.04 and dual boot. I would have to boot into Windows(R) XP first, the soft reset and boot into Ubuntu 10.04. (but this is not something I wish to do) This Qualcomm 9212 3g internal USB modem is quite popular in NetBooks, and I can't be the only person in the universe who is using Ubuntu 10.04 on it so there must be some way to make this 3g modem work on Ubuntu 10.04?
I bought a Toshiba NB305-410BN-G and it has an internal Sierra Wireless GOBI`2000 HS - USB Mobile Broadband Device 9001. This works fine providing wireless internet over Verizon's cellular service using Windoze 7 Starter os. I installed Ubuntu 9.1 (canonical) on the NB305 and I found a network device GUI that allowed me to configure "Mobile Broadband" for Verizon and allowed me to check a little box to automatically start the service. This action does not provide me with Verizon on Ubuntu. When I looked at the devices, I cannot see the gobi 2000.How do I get the gobi to work on 9.1?
I'm using the RAID1 setup, which is configured in the BIOS, as it is a HP Proliant server. i have 2 500GB hard drives configured in a mirror. when booting the install, it recognises this, and deals with it fine.
The problem is, when it gets to the section of installing the grub2 boot loader, it just stops and gives me the "ubuntu installer main menu" where if i select grub boot loader install it just loops back, and if i select LILO installer, it errors, saying an installation step failed.
It has the option to skip installing boot loader, but then, can i get it to boot a different way? can i boot manually into the server install and then install GRUB and hope it works? can i install grub1 rather than grub2?
I have installed the ubuntu 9.10 and the pc already have 2 win 7 OS and 1 win xp I installed the ubuntu from win xp every thing go just fine but in win 7 boat loader it detects the 2 win 7 OS , previous windows ( the xp )and the ubuntu which fails to load from win7 boot loader ( the first problem ) but it is present also in win xp boat loader so when choosing older windows the win xp bootloader let me choose between windows xp and ubuntu which works fine when choosing it the ubuntu bootloader appears with ubuntuubuntu safe modewin7 bootloader
the second problems that choosing win 7 after restarting the pc from ubuntu fail to open it begin loading with the windows logo and then just shutdown the whole pc as if i have unplugged it! the only way to let it open is to choose older windows>>> ubuntu >>>> ubuntu bootloader >>> where there is win 7 bootloader option it returns me again to win 7 bootloader but this time the windows load complete ( mostly but may shut down also!)
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 and then I installed WICD using Synaptic and then uninstalled Network Manager. WICD worked fine until I rebooted. Then I could not connect at all. Wicd displayed the wireless lans and even authenticated OK. But wicd was not able to obtain an IP address.
I had 10.10, and all was well. Then I installed natty, and WiFi worked for a while, then stopped working. I later went back to 10.10, and WiFi still isn't working. The WiFi icon in the top bar looks like it's scanning. But it just keeps on scanning, continuously. Then it asks me for the password, so it obviously connects to something if it knows the network needs a password.
But here's the weird thing, my router also creates a BT Open Network, which I think is some pay service that BT offer, apparently through anyone's wifi since it's not password protected. I can connect to that. But not the actual network that leads to the internet. This happened a while back, and of course I can't install any updates on it because I can't get online. I am writing this from XP on the same computer, and XP can connect to the network no problem.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop that used to have Vista installed on it. I've been trying out various Linux live discs (eventually choosing Ubuntu) for over a year now, and whenever I've been on a live disc, the laptop has been able to connect wirelessly to the internet and browse the web. I have a NETGEAR router and I have always been given the option in the upper right to connect to NETGEAR. Tonight, when I installed Ubuntu, I chose to wipe the hard drive completely (I backed up stuff already), and it asked me if I had an internet connection. I tried to connect to NETGEAR but it wouldn't work. This made me a little suspicious, but I chugged along with the installation anyway. Now that it's fully installed, when I go up to see the list of wireless connections, it doesn't give me any options; everything is greyed out. What do I do now? I just wiped an entire hard drive and can't use the internet.
my wireless network doesnt recognize that any network is around. The broadcom STA driver will not install and it says "Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log" the jog file says
I'm not getting a response over on the Ubuntu WIreless Forum (which looks like it's getting slammed with questions), and weigh in on whether or not you believe I have a hardware failure on my hands? As I state in the post, I ran fine from the original installed version, 8.10, through 2 upgrades (to 9.04 and 9.10). Now none of them work (When the problems began I re-installed each of them in turn in order to test).
I have a Sony Vaio PCG-5A1N (built for Japan) which has a malfunctioning CD-ROM. The bios doesn't support USB external CD-Drives and it doesn't have any USB boot either.The only method, I am left to work with is the PXE boot. I have finally setup a PXEBOOT on another CentOS server and everything works fine all the way to choosing language etc....but after it grabs images/stage2.img this is what it gives me:
loader received SIGSEGV! Backtrace: [0x8048cf4] [0x300420][code]...
I have an HP a670y desktop computer using the included wireless antenna (looks like a big Sorry game piece). I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x64 dual booted with Windows Vista x64. I haven't had internet for a while but just got it today and decided to do some updating in both Windows and Ubuntu. It had detected my router and I copied and pasted the WEP key then it asked for my password, but my keyboard wasn't connected so I clicked cancel for the password window and it connected anyway.
I opened the Synaptic package manager and started downloading some updates while I did some browsing on the internet. I had restarted my computer when the updates were done and it asked again for my WEP key. I copied and pasted just as I did before and entered my password and after it tried to connect it asked for my password again. I thought maybe the internet was down so I decided to boot up Windows and it connected right away. I wonder if one of my updates messed something up. Has anyone else had this happen?
I've been using Windows all my life (and still have to use it at work) but I made the big leap yesterday and installed Ubuntu on my personal machine (at last). With my "Windows-centric" mind, there are a million things that I still don't get, but I must say the community and forums look quite impressive and easy to access (kudos! ). I am testing this today!My current problem is with the wireless adapter. I have a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter (FSD8053v3) and Belkin, of course, doesn't make linux drivers. When I installed Ubuntu, it recognized it automatically and I could connect to my network, but navigation was very slow so I tried to install Belkin windows drivers using ndiswrapper. It worked immediately, and navigation was very fast. However after a reboot, I lost the connection, I can't even see any of the neighbouring networks.
I did an inplace upgrade on my Dell Latitude X1 from Fedora 14 to 15 using dist-sync as per instructions on the website. It was not entirely smooth but I believe all the packages are now present and correct. Initially, about half the packages were still on f14 and the machine barely booted. I booted single user (nothing else was possible) and persuaded yum to fetch & install the rest.I was using wicd on 14 to connect wirelessly and it "just worked". I used wicd because I found NetworkManager didn't work.
On upgrade to 15, wicd now fails, and NetworkManager still does.icd i get an authentication failure, though the pw is correct. The only clue in the logs I can see is that wicd complains of not finding python-iwscan, and doesn't seem happy in using dhclient. Of course p-iwscan isn't in Fedora. Is p-iwlib similar? For wlassistant onnect failed.NetworkManager is currently refusing to acknowledge the existence of wireless on the machine, though occasionally it has addmitted the possibility. Then however I can neither scan for an SSID nor enter one manually ** Using iwconfig and setting the key manually *appears* to connect to the AP, but dhclient won't get IP data for it (if I ask nicely, it appears to try but isn't transmitting anything)The wireless card is an Intel ipw2200 chipset built into the X1. The ethernet port is working ok now, using a Broadcom chip.
still stalling after all those months, everything is explained here
the card works fine in xubuntu jaunty, doesn't in xubuntu karmic or ubuntu karmic. i (my wife) wants to use ubutun karmic, but we still can't get this ATMEL PCMCIA wirelesscard to work on ubuntu karmic like it does on jaunty... and we have the windows INF drivers
my net worked HP printer will not print-broken pipe - this started after I had to switch off the printer at the mains in order to attend to a paper jam. Now it will not print apart from a test page. I am using Fedora 10 and the device info is "hp:/net/Officejet_Pro_L7500?ip=192.168.0.4"
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
I had the Wireless Broadband working. It stopped working after I closed the laptop (suspend). Also the wifi will not connect until reboot. Now the entry for the Wireless Broadband is gone, and the tab for it is greyed out as well.I would be happy to submit this as a bug and assist with the debugging process.
I have a laptop with windows vista installed on the internal hardrive.Last March I installed wanted to start to use linux so I brought a separate external hardrive partitioned it to enable media storage on one section and installed ubuntu on the other half. It works fine and so does the windows vista on my internal hardrive, however I have to have the hardrive plugged in to boot.Until now this hasnt bothered me, however I've recently started to take my laptop into university and cannot switch it off unless I have the external hardrive with me as I cannot switch it on without it.With it plugged in it loads up GRUB and then gives me the option to load either Ubuntu or windows vista, however if it is not plugged in when I power up it says GRUB loader failed.It also occured to me that if for some reason my external hardrive fails in the future I wont be able to use my laptop anymore.Has the installation of ubuntu (and GRUB) altered the MBR? Is there some way I can edit the settings so that I can load windows vista without the hardrive plugged in, and then if it is plugged in I get the choice which one to load?
I just upgraded to natty last night, and everything is working fine except for the network manager. I can enable and configure the wireless card via bash, but the network manager widget will not manage the wireless card.
When I first boot up, the "Enable wireless" check box is greyed out. After I enable the card via the terminal, the "Enable wireless" check box becomes ungreyed, but every time I click it, it instantly unchecks itself. I feel like Currly from the Three Stoogies. Check, uncheck, Check, uncheck.. "Slaps face repeatedly."
I have a Compaq Evo N610c that was running 9.10. I was reluctant to upgrade to 10.04 since everything was working like a clock. But, alas, the "newer is better" bug bit me and I just HAD to try out 10.04. So, I installed it in a dual boot mode, keeping my 9.10 in tact. I'm glad I did! I use an Enterasys Roamabout CSIBD-AA-128 wireless lan card to connect to my network. I use WEP 128-bit encryption for the network. I connect without issue in 9.10.
In 10.04, I am unable to connect to the network. I am sure that the card is recognized, as the system "sees" my network and tries to connect. I am asked for "wireless network authentication required". I have tried both passphrase (WEP 40/128-bit key) and WEP 128-bit passphrase (network name 5rueckls). When I enter either, the computer looks like it is trying to connect, but never gets there. Settings under the "Editing Auto 5rueckls" include Mode: Infrastructure, MTU: Automatic, IPv4 Settings Method: Automatic, IPv6 Settings Method: Automatic, Wireless security: WEP 40/128 (key entered), WEP Index 1, Authentication: Open System. Available to all users is "ticked". I am very new to the whole Linux/Ubuntu environment, but have made alot of progress! I can follow direction very nicely.
I replaced my wired router and networking has gone south on one of my boxes. It's a Dell tower, a few years old, triple boot (ubuntu 8.10, FreeBSD, WindowsXP). Old router used 192.168.254.* via DHCP, new one is 192.168.2.* via DHCP. The router replacement caused no problems for either FreeBSD or WinXP on this box, nor for any of the other boxes on the network (one of which is ubuntu 9.10).
Ubuntu 8.10 simply will not connect to the new router. I'm presuming that something somewhere down deep has been compromised and I just don't know where to start looking or what buttons to push to reconfigure correctly. Router status displays show an IP address of 192.168.2.35 for this box, booted under all three operating systems. Using network-manager to force that static address instead of relying on DHCP does not seem to help.
I'm currently learning how to program in PHP i have recently installed LAMP server and apache2 and MySQL, i have run a bunch of commands, so i can really remember them all..the ones i can remember is:
Code: apache2 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-php5 mysql-server sudo tasksel install lamp-server sudo apt-get install apache2 and when i entered url in my browser bar i got a screen saying it worked but no content has been added.
I tried put my test file (called index.php) into /var/www/ still not worked renamed it to index.html still not worked.tried url and with index.html wasn't working.
i woke up today to try find out what was wrong. BUT NOW I CAN'T ENTER url.I got a "server not found" screen like when you enter an incorrect adress
i tried to restart apache using:
Code: sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart but get's
* Restarting web server apache2 apache2: Syntax error on line 233 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 12 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/index.php: Expected </?php> but saw </div> [fail].
