Ubuntu :: No 'along-side' Option When Trying To Install 11.04?

Sep 1, 2011

trying to install 11.04 on an older HP nc6220 laptop that is currently running XP Pro.While running Ubuntu from the thumb-drive has been successful, with everything working so far, the installation doesn't seem to be giving me all of the options that previous installs on other machines have.

For instance, when I click on the option to install Ubuntu, I'm only getting the option to install 'over' XP Pro and not along side it. There is however one other option, 'something else', where I believe that you can manually create the partitions, however it's all greek to me. Is there a specific reason why I'm not getting the option to install 'along-side' XP pro?

For whatever it's worth, when it does the checks just after clicking the 'install' option, it says that I'm good to go -as far as available space and internet connection. Do I just have to manually create the partitions, or is there anyway to get the option to install 'along-side' XP pro?

Ubuntu Installation :: Doesn't Give Option To Install Along Side Of Other OS

Oct 14, 2010

I am installing ubuntu on a Dell m7750n machine that has the KSOD. I have done almost everything I can find to fix it. I was able to remove my data off of it using regedit....

So, I am sick of MS and found linux. I installed unbutu netbook on my netbook and it works like a charm.....

So, I went to install this on my desktop dell.... I have read of the many issue with this...

I was not able to boot from the CDlive as is. I kept getting a black screen with nothing. I then used the f6 to get into grub and then choose f6 to change the load options to load nomodeset and was able to load ubuntu from the drive, not install.

I would like to install ubuntu, but when I click on install from the 'tester' version it will not give me the option to install along side another OS (windows) that I see in the install ubuntu main website in the see how to do it.

I get two options:
Erase and use entire disk
Specify partitions manually (advanced)

Question: Can I install and select my own partitions using: [url]

Or, is there something wrong and I need to get that fixed before I install ubuntu?

Is this a DELL issue or KSOD issue?

Ubuntu Installation :: No "side By Side" Option In Netbook Edition?

Sep 26, 2010

After successful (dual-boot) installation of Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop and laptop, I wanted to do the same for my netbook. I downloaded the Ubuntu Netbook edition [URL], and doing the same as before I wanted to select the " install them side by side" option. But in the installation menu (which is not the same as on screenshots on the [URL] where they use the screenshots from desktop edition) there is no such option. Is that only possible with the desktop distribution?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Side-by-Side Hiccup?

Aug 10, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my home laptop after testing it (and loving it) on my work desktop just this morning. First time Ubuntu user and looking to be a long one, too.Anyways, I used the "install side-by-side" on both machines, but my laptop, with Vista, has a weird side effect. At the boot screen, I chose Windows Vista and it booted the recovery tool (I forgot the exact name). I was worried at first, but when I chose the actual Windows Recovery option below it to attempt to fix it, it booted Vista. So it seems in the process of partitioning the HDD for Ubuntu I somehow switched what each partition boots. Is there a way to correct this?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04, No Option To Load Along Side Of Windows 7?

Jun 19, 2011

The only options I get for loading Ubuntu 11.04 on my HP 2000-219DX Laptop is: 1. completely remove windows 7 and download Ubuntu, or 2. Manually partition the HD. I'm no computer wiz and am fairly new to GNU/Linux so I really don't know what the problem might be. I need the windows os for work but would prefer to run the Ubuntu distro for personal computing. I have the same problem with Ubuntu 10.10, so no Ubuntu for this laptop until I can get this problem solved.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Make X11 Screens Be Side-by-side

Jul 20, 2010

It used to be a sysadmin/yast setting wherein you configured the display.It is now done under "personal settings"-->"display" meaning ordinary users can set their own preferences. That's really nice and all, but I'd rather it be sysadmin-only than have to go through several minutes of futzing around with it every blasted time I login. So, how can I make side-by-side permanent either for myself or for all the people who use my system (just me)? Thank you.

This module is only for configuring systems with a single desktop spread across multiple monitors. You do not appear to have this configuration.Since I obviously do and since I can get the desktops to spread across the monitors (after futzing for several minutes).

General :: Ubuntu - Play Two Or More Videos Side By Side In A Synchronized Fashion

May 10, 2010

I have two (or more) video files that I want to play side by side. I could do that simply by opening them in two seperate windows, but that would also seperate all the controls (play/pause/forward/...). I want to play them in a synchronized fashion so that pause/forwarding/... works on both videos simultaneously so that they always stay at the same timecode and they don't go out of sync. How would I accomplish that in Linux?

This is needed for viewing only, so compositing them into a new video file first should be avoided if possible, but if there isn't an easy way to do that, I welcome answers doing it with composition as well.

Ubuntu :: Make New Icons Automatically Add To Right Side Instead Of Left Side Of Desktop?

Dec 18, 2010

If a file gets created in the user's Desktop folder, or if a drive is added to the machine and a Desktop icon is correspondingly created, they will by default appear on the left side of the desktop (unless, in the case of the latter, the specific drive has been created before and dragged to the right side, in which case GNOME will remember to put it in the same place).

Because I have a terminal window embedded onto my Desktop in the top left corner and occupying most of the screen), I keep my icons on the right side of the Desktop instead of the left (Mac style) - Any time I add a new drive or a file is sent to the Desktop, however, I have to kill the terminal window to be able to click on the icon, then drag it back to the right side, then restart the terminal.

Is there any way to tweak GNOME so that these icons are added from the top right corner and down instead of from the top left, automatically?

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup A Dual Boot System With XP Running Side By Side On Thinkpad T41?

Jan 28, 2010

have been trying to setup a dual boot system with ubuntu and XP running side by side on my Thinkpad T41.tried it a few times and always causes the same problem. i have 40 gig HDD, on which i create a 13 gig NTFS partition and leave the rest as free space. then install XP on the NTFS partition. no problems.

then i boot from the ubuntu disk (9.10 Karmic) and install using the "use free space" option at the partition section. ubuntu installs ok, and boots fine from GRUB 2.0. BUT when i select the XP option from GRUB's list, it starts to boot XP, i get the standard XP loading screen for three seconds and then it crashes to a blue screen critical problem, and restarts the system. when i then boot from the xp cd and go into recovery mode CHKDSK will not recognise the disk, and DISKPART shows one HDD at 35 gig which it cannot access.

this means i cant run FIXBOOT and get my xp install running again. every time i do this process it produces the same problem. tried at first with xp installed on whole HDD, and reducing the xp partition size. killed XP. then tried ubuntu first and xp second - but this caused the same inaccessible disk problem - xp would not recognise the partitions and would not install. so i slipstreamed my XP install disk to SP2 hoping this would make it recognise the partitions, but no luck there. so had to format all and repartition the 13 gig NTFS for xp. installed xp again without difficulty but ubuntu install killed my xp in the same way.

Ubuntu :: Finding A Software To Compare Two Documents Side By Side?

I'm looking for a software to compare two documents (for example .odt) side by side or highlighted in graphical way. I want to do the same as Word 2010 Compare Documents (see this: Microsoft Word 2010: View Two Documents Side By Side). I found in OpenOffice something a bit similar that, see in <Edit> -->> <Compare documents>, but it's not a good visual presentation. I'm looking for a software who give me the possibility to see the differences between two documents side by side, or highlighted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Side By Side Upgrade - Copying APT Repository?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm wondering how much of my currently installed packages I can transfer to a new system...I have a HDD split in two. I have 10.4 on one half (/dev/sda6) - my working system for the last year or so since my last upgrade - and I have just installed 11.04 on the other half (/dev/sda. I wanted to check out the new version rather than upgrading. note I have my home folder and all stored data on other drives (zfs mirrored disks) - the boot disk is mostly OS related... I can overwrite /dev/sda8 with impunity as long as /dev/sda6 is intact....

What I want to do is capture the wide variety of packages I have installed on the old version and install them onto the new system - without using the dist-upgrade mechanism... I've had it fail too many times leaving me with a complete rebuild being required... is this (partially) possible or have too many core packages changed? I was especially thinking of something like [URL]

to obtain the list:

dpkg --get-selections | awk �$2 ~ /^install$/ {print $1}� > installedpackages

to reinstall:

cat installedpackages | xargs sudo aptitude install -y

another path would be to clone the entire /dev/sda6 onto /dev/sda8, boot into the duplicate and dist-upgrade that

OpenSUSE Install :: Should There Be Option To Download ISO Option For CD Installation

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 9.10 Side By Side With Kubuntu 9.04?

Mar 31, 2010

I did a search but for this topic and I thought it would be discussed quite a bit, did not get any results. Maybe I did not use the correct words? Anyhow, I am running Kubuntu 9.04 and wish to switch to Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I do still want to keep Kubuntu 9.04 as a boot up option temporarily in case I have major issues with Ubuntu. Ill also need to know how to get rid of Kubuntu after Im sure all is well with Ubuntu. Finally, there are a ton of boot options (different kernels Ive upgraded to) in Grub when Kubuntu boots up. How do I get rid of those? I also have a Windows XP partition that I boot into occasionally.

Networking :: Changes On The Server Side Aren't Visible On The Client Side?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm using NFS and I have the following problem. After ~100 days, the client and server lose connection, but the client doesn't know about this, it gives no error. The problem is that the changes on the server side aren't visible on the client side.

The nfs options are: "noatime, nolock, hard, udp, notcp, nosuid, nodev, rsize=8192, wsize=8192, actimeo=60"

The kernel version is: 2.6.16.27 built with 250 Hz. Is this an already corrected issue in a kernel version? Or are my options wrong?

Ubuntu :: Unity And Gnome 2 Side By Side?

May 6, 2011

I have to say that I don't mind Unity all that much! Certainly not as much as I had expected to, given what I had been reading before the upgrade from Maverick. I'd like to go on playing around with it. However, I would also like to continue to be able to use Gnome 2 sometimes, with Compiz and Emerald, as I have done in the past.

The trouble is that whenever I log into the "Ubuntu classic" desktop, it loads compiz, complete with the Unity plugin. Then I have to disable the Unity plugin manually every time, and do the same (with no panel) whenever I log into Unity.

Is there a way I can configure it to only load the Unity plugin in the Unity desktop, but not in the Gnome 2 desktop?

Slackware :: Setting Up The 2.6.37.6 And 2.6.38.4 Kernels Side By Side?

May 28, 2011

The 2.6.37 kernel has proved disappointing for me on one lap top at least. The KMS disregards any boot-up parameters and bringing X on seems to be a big struggle for the lap top. The logon screen for run level 3 appears for several seconds before the lap top starts up the GUI logon. Worst of all, applications seem to take twice as long as they used to to get started.

No doubt there are some tweeks I could do but the main problem seems to be that the lap top is not powerful enough to cope with the KMS. I am even considering downgrading back to Slackware 13.1 (which this laptop had no trouble coping with).

Before doing this I thought I would try the 2.6.38.4 kernel and see if this overcame any problems. An initial trial looked promising but evidently there is more to using a new kernel than unpacking the huge 2.6.38 kernel and re-running lilo. I was unable to get past the login screen because many of the 2.6.38 directories don't exist.

Can I set up a laptop so that I can choose which kernel I want to use at boot-up time or do I have to make a total commitment with one kernel only?
