Ubuntu :: Restoring EEE PC After Install. F9 Doesn't Work?

Apr 1, 2011

I have a 904HA that I am taking to Argentina for my mother to use and video chat with me. It occurred to me though that since I am a total linux newbie, it would be hell for me to setup a PPPOE account as they limit their DSL usage. Last time I was there they used proprietary windows only software. So having said that,need to restore my EEEPC to windows.Unfortunately in the process of installing linux I broke the restore?I didn't delete the restore partition but now when I hit f9 or f10 etc, it doesn't bring up the restore partition.I remember I had a similar problem before and I solved it but I don't remember how.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot System, But Last Bootloader Install Doesn't Work?

Feb 16, 2010

I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made

Ubuntu :: New Install, Keyboard Doesn't Work

Mar 17, 2010

Windows crapped out on me (not surprisingly) and I am using Ubuntu to transfer all of my files to an external hard drive. However, when the computer loads the Ubuntu disk I get to a language selection menu, but my keyboard doesn't work. It won't let me make any sort of selection, and the 30 second timer eventually times out and my system just restarts and the process starts all over again.

I've tried plugging my keyboard in to all of the different USB ports on my computer, but still nothing. The strange thing is that the keyboard works just fine when I changed the BIOS settings to boot from the cd-rom... it just doesn't work when Ubuntu is ready to run..

OpenSUSE Install :: USB Doesn't Work At All Once

Mar 30, 2010

As stated, NO USB functions, not at all, the light on the mouse is on, but it does not move on screen, the PS2 keyboard does not function either. Nothing that would allow you to install it, works at all. I am absolutely shocked not one single person on here has mentioned this.

The last time I tried OpenSuse was version 10, it installed without issue, I noted the installer as the nicest one in the Linux world I had seen to date, only to be utterly let down by this USB fumble.I have Legacy USB support, Legacy Keyboard and Legacy Mouse USB support on, that isn't the issue, and this didn't happen with 10 on the same system.

Debian Installation :: Boot - Apt-get Install Xorg Doesn't Work

Mar 25, 2010

I recently installed debian on my ibook G4, but when I start up the computer, it doesn't boot into Xorg. When I tried to start Xorg, it says that it is not installed. How would I install it, and how would I start it? When I do the apt-get install xorg, it doesn't work. Right now I'm running ubuntu on it, but I really want just plain debian, as I really dont need all of the bells and whistles that Ubuntu offers. I just need something to do schoolwork on (I'm a highschool sophmore), and I don't want to use OS X for that as I like linux better (specifically debian and ubuntu).

OpenSUSE Install :: Live Usb Stick Doesn't Work - I/O Errors

Apr 21, 2011

I've been trying to figure out how to run/install openSUSE from a usb stick for several days. I downloaded the 11.4 .iso from distrowatch & used the following command in Linux Mint to put it on the usb stick.

sudo dd if=openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdc

It gets to the loading screen and get stuck. It has a small bar going across, that never finishes. I've hit escape to try and get some info, but don't know what I'm looking for and it's too much to write down. I did notice there were several I/O errors. I did check the usb for defects and it returned ok, and the md5sum was correct.

I've also tried safe settings which takes me to a blueish/black screen and stays there. No ACPI starts to load and then drops to a shell.

how to get this accomplished? I've installed many Linux OS's and I've never had this much trouble.

ps. I"ve read the "please read" pre installation page on here, and things just don't make a whole lot of sense to me.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restoring MBR After Windows 7 Install?

Jul 23, 2010

I hope this is the right sub-forum for a question like this. It seemed like the best match from what I could find, but my issue stems from installing Windows 7 after I already had Ubuntu installed. I don't know what details are important, so I'll be as thorough as I can. I was running Ubuntu 9.10 on a machine with two SATA hard drives. I was only using one since Ubuntu kept complaining that the second drive was having some issues. The drive with Ubuntu had only two partitions, one tiny one for the swap and the rest of the hard drive was the second partition.

I needed to install Windows for my work, and since I was not very familiar with the whole partition thing (which is the reason why the hard drive was basically one huge partition) I decided to follow this guide: [URL]... I backed up my important data, I used a live CD to create a new partition for windows, I backed up my MBR using the command given, and installed Windows 7. Everything went pretty smoothly. Now, whenever I boot up I don't get a choice of what OS to boot, it just goes straight to Windows, as expected.

I used the same live CD to restore the MBR using the command given on the guide, but I get this error:
dd: opening `/media/sda/mbr.bin': No such file or directory

Ubuntu One :: Restoring Files To A Fresh Install?

Dec 15, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu One for both access to my files from various computers, but also as a lazy way of backing up my files.

I can't get my head round what happens if I delete a file off my computer, or if I had to wipe my computer and do a fresh install - will UO just restore the files off the cloud server or will it think I've purposefully deleted them and wipe the copies saved to the cloud?

Fedora Hardware :: Unable To Install Nvidia - Nouveau Doesn't Work

Jul 3, 2010

I have Fedora 11 installed on a system that initially had an ATI 1650 type card. I recently replaced it with a GeForce GT 220. I don't believe there was ever an xorg.conf generated or used with the ATI card. Initially, when I replaced cards and rebooted, I was able to start up KDE or GNOME but with only 2 very low resolutions available(the highest being 800x600). Next I ran Xorg -configure to generate an xorg.conf file. Everything I am seeing in this file seems to make sense. But now, when I startx all I get is a red error box being displayed by the CRT monitor with this message:

Signal Frequency is out of range
FH 30.1 kHz FV 24 Hz
Please Change Signal Timing

The only way I can get my X system back is to go into the xorg.conf file (in the Device Section) and change the driver to vesa. But I still only have 2 very low resolutions available.

Fedora :: Gnome Timed Login Doesn't Work On Fresh 13 Install?

Jul 28, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 on a new computer and the timed login for gnome does not work unless you manually select it. This surprised me as I upgraded a separate computer to Fedora 13 and the timed login feature still correctly functions and does not require user interaction.


Adding the above to /etc/gdm/custom.conf only adds an Automatic Login option that you have to manually select and then the computer will login. I would deem this less than useful.


I know you can substitute the timed login with the automatic login and it will instantly login, but this provides no option to select another user. I have been unable to find any information why this feature no longer works and wanted to know if there is a new way or if anyone knows why the timed login feature was crippled.

OpenSUSE Install :: Restoring Default Graphics Drivers ?

Jan 18, 2010

I've lost my GUI while attempting to install the latest ATI proprietary driver. I followed their instructions on how to uninstall it but it didn't give me my GUI back. How do I get back to the default drivers that came with my installation? I have a Radeon 3850.

Booting into safe mode doesn't give me a GUI.

I want to try to reinstall the ATI proprietary drivers eventually. I have them on the hard drive, but I have had no luck installing them using the CLI so far.

OpenSUSE Install :: Restoring Kernel Spew On Boot

Sep 29, 2010

I've recently performed a clean upgrade from 11.0 to 11.3 (wipe / partition to ext4, retain /home disk, swap partition etc.) and everything is fine, installed as Gnome distro with KDE3 from repos.Anyway, I've noticed that SuSE will say "doing fast boot" and suspend any console spew until after the kernel has finished with hardware detection and the like. I'd like to be able to see exactly what's happening with the kernel at boot, as I'm quite paranoid and in the event of system failure etc. it would be difficult to view the logs post-boot. Also, my IDE optical drives have a habit of sometimes only being partially detected due to the power line being somewhat intermittent, and I've seen the kernel attempt to re-stablish a link on 11.0, whereas I'd never be able to see that in 11.3 unless I see the console spew, so it would look like the system hanging on "doing fast boot".

Note: I do not want to disable splash=silent, unless spalsh has another option which will give me the desired functionality. I want to have a silent boot, with the option of going verbose with Esc; it's one of the things that I love about SuSE.Oh, and Grub was a nightmare as usual with disk ordering differing at run-time from config file and the total freeze at "loading stage2", so I had to manually fix that. Why does the installer seemingly ignore or revert the specific options I set for GRUB? I understand that the default options for GRUB are ok for single disk users, but my disk ordering is not overly exotic. I stress that this was not user error, as I've had the same issue from going from 10.2 to 10.3 to 11.0, even though they were clean grub installs (rewrites). /rant.
