Ubuntu :: Unable To Power On After Latest Upgrade Installed / Resolve This?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm running 10.10LTS at present, I upgraded via the Upgrade Manager last night, Firefox 3.4 and D-bus stuff if I remember correctly. The system then gave the "restart now or later" buttons and I hit the "now" one. My system, an AMD 3800+ dual core job in an MSI mobo then shut down and, er... died. hitting the momentory action power switch gives an ocasional short noise but I have no power/fans or anything. It's a 480 Watt PSU with green leds and stuff I don't really need but the price was good, so I'm not convinced that it's dead... yet.

Is it possible for an upgrade to stuff the power-up circuitry? Maybe power management?

My next step is to swap the PSU to eliminate this as the "faulty" item. It leaves the Mobo, screwed CMOS and possibly the switch cabling/connector but it's all a bit suspicious. I'm basicially a hardware guy so that's the path I'm following. Unless the upgrade's written to somewhere it shouldn't?

I haven't had time to investigate further as I was dragged away shouting and screaming to a prior engagement by "she who must be obeyed".

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Fail During Upgrade / Resolve This?

May 3, 2010

The other evening I was in the lengthy process of upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to version 10.04. It had downloaded all the packages and was in the process of upgrading when a thunderstorm blew in. The power failed momentarily. The system crashed and the installation did not complete.

The system is dual boot to Windows XP. From GRUB when I try to boot Ubuntu the display goes dark, after a few seconds of the white Ubuntu logo. If I hit ENTER I get a flashing Cursor. I can boot to System Restore and get the Recovery Menu. I don't know if there is something I can do from there to repair/finish my upgrade, or even revert to version 9, when I could restart the upgrade.

Can I burn a Live CD for version 10.04 and finish the upgrade? This would salvage the settings, printer drivers, and other programs that I have installed. If I have to make a brand new installation I have to rebuild all of the things I spent many hours getting setup.

Fedora Installation :: F12 Kernel Seems Unable To Use Installed Hd / Resolve It?

Jan 21, 2010

I am trying to install Fedora12 on a usb hard-drive, the first problem I encountered was that the hard-drive would not boot stating "kernel panic: unable to create root device", this is just using the standard fedora 12 install and mostly clicking next (although I add my vista to the grub and tell grub to install to /dev/sdc which is the location of my usb hdd).

I have also tried livecdtousb (wont boot in stick and wont recognize removable hd as removable)

I have tried setting up disc encryption and installing with no LVM.

The drive has this same problem with ubuntu 9.10 however ubuntu 8.10 installs perfectly and I am guessing earlier versions of fedora will too. The problem is that I would like the kernel features of Fedora 12 (mainly modesetting) without this issue.

I have played about with grub and quite like disabling LVM and using the uuid of the drive to select the root partition, my boot partition has 500mb, I have a 2gb swap space 50gb ext4 root partition & 27gb fat32 partition code...

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Upgrade To 11.4: Can't Resolve Host / Error Code: Connection Failed?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm currently running 11.3 and decided I'd try upgrading to 11.4 following the instructions here: SDB:System upgrade - openSUSEUnfortunately, my attempts are defeated at the point of trying to refresh the new repos; I get the following message (for the oss repo, in this case):

Download (curl) error for 'url':
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'

With 11.4 replaced by 11.3 in the repo url, it refreshes just fine. The only repository that works when I change 11.3 to 11.4 is the Packman repo. I'm not really sure why the connection fails for 11.4 but not 11.3!

Further info: I have an old router with no IPv6 support, but have IPv6 disabled system-wide. I can enter the url for the repositories into firefox and they come up just fine - it's only with zypper/YaST that I get the above error message.I also tried upgrading using the network CD but ran into the same sort of problem. In this case it may be because the CD installer doesn't disable IPv6. (I didn't want to download the DVD at my connection speed, and the KDE live CD is not listed as suitable for upgrade).

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Hangs After Latest Updates / Resolve This?

Jan 29, 2010

A first for me with Ubuntu. The system has hung. Well almost hung.

After installing the latest automatic updates - I'm sorry, I don't know how to identify which ones they were, but it was on 29 January 2010 - when selecting almost any application the system almost hangs. By almost hangs, I mean, the cursor will move very slightly once every 10 seconds or so, but even if it can be manipulated to a certain point, no action can be taken.

The only way out of this situation that I have been able to find is a hard reboot. (I was used to this type of thing with Windows XP, but had never seen it before with Ubuntu).

Reverting to Ubuntu Linux 2.6.31-17-genereic-PAE at the GRUB boot up option screen solves the problem.

Any suggestions on what might be happening, how to fix it, or if it is even worth bothering with? It is working just fine (so far) on the older generic-PAE.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.04 - How To Check That Latest Drivers Installed

Mar 22, 2010

I've just installed ubuntu 9.04 (had the disc from before) and I'm upgrading to 9.10 of course but I have a question. How do I check that I have the latest drivers installed for everything in my laptop? I'm the kind of person that has that nagging feeling in the back of my head telling me that everything isn't installed perfectly and I need to install my drivers properly (or at least ask).

Ubuntu :: 10.04: Latest Upgrade Fails To Boot

Jul 30, 2010

It used to be, that with grub (not grub2?), I could restore the boot partition by the following:

# grub
grub> find /grub/grub.cfg
grub> root (hd0,10)
grub> setup (hd0,10)

Now this no longer works with whatever grub 10.04 uses, I suspect it is grub2? How do I restore grub to the specific partition I need and NOT to MBR? I have a different boot loader and this boot loader is directed to Ubuntu's boot partition.... Since I cannot boot directly to Ubuntu's boot partition I am perhaps left with only LiveCD to do the recovery, right?

Ubuntu :: The Configuration Defaults For Gnome Power Manager Have Not Been Installed Correctly

Oct 10, 2010

I was using simple backup config to backup home to an external drive and it was working fine for the past week or so and today after the backup the computer was restarted and I am unable to log on. I get an error message saying. "the configuration defaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly "

I did some googling and the problem is that / is full. I have been trying for the past three hours to delete some space on / so that I can log on. I used ctr-alt-f1 and I can log on there but whatever command I use to delete the root trash it fails. I get an error message saying /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ is not a file or directory.

delete root trash so I can log onto this computer. I have used every variant of sudo rm -r /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ that I could find including one using Chmod. I have already tried the commands found in this tutorial [URL]

I also reinstalled gnome but that did nothing.

Ubuntu :: Configuration Deaults For Gnome Power Manager Have Not Been Installed Correctly?

Feb 27, 2011

I just tried to start up Ubuntu and got the following error message. "The configuration deaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."

I then get a black screen, with the menu bar at the bottom, and a choice of who to log in as. No matter who I choose I get the same error message and then it takes me back to the same screen. It also gives me the choice of what session to use but again, no matter what I choose it just takes me back to the error message and the same screen. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an Eeepc 901. I have the Netbook version installed, but I was using the desktop session. The last time my computer worked I ran update manager and it updated some Intel driver i think. Sorry I can't remember the exact details. Not sure if this is something to do with it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Latest Upgrade Broke Booting?

Mar 17, 2010

I just did the latest upgrade in 9.10 via the update manager and it required a reboot. When I rebooted Ubuntu failed to load. In recovery mode it fails saying that it can't find my root device and has some suggestions about what might be wrong. I looked at the file it listed in /proc/something and the devices available by uuid in /dev/ and what's listed in /proc/something isn't in dev. I haven't made any changes yet for fear of causing worse damage. The shell it bumps to is ASH and it doesn't look to have much editor support to make changes to the proc file(ECHO > ?). Is there a safer way to get my system back online?

I'm running 9.10 AMD64 on a Dell Inspiron laptop with a dual boot to Windows 7 (For browser testing web apps/sites)
