I would like to run Linux Mint fullversion from a flashdrive. Is it possible and easy to set up. I have found how to basically create a flashdrive version of the live cd, but I would like to run the full version from the flashdrive.
I installed Ubuntu on to a usb hard drive now without that hard drive plugged in i cant get to my windows(it goes to grub recovery). With it plugged in it lets me pick witch OS to use. How do I get it to just boot right to windows when its not plugged in?
I bought a new issue of Linux Format magazine and saw it had a bootable disk with Fedora installer/live DVD on it which I was eager to try out "The worlds most advanced Linux distro" I put the DVD in my computer and rebooted it. I selected 'install or upgrade'. It started to load (blasting white text at me). I skipped the media test but then the screen was black and reacted to no mouse moving or keyboard pressing. Not even the OFF button, so I pressed RESET and selected 'install with basic video driver' this time it worked. It didn't fill my whole screen like many 'basic video drivers' but they don't cut off much so I was willing to forgive Fedora using one it was proberly only for the install anyway I could download a new one after. I have a Radeon HD 4200 (extreamly crap) intergrated into the north bridge. I can't afford an expensive graphics card. I build it myself so I can tell you what parts it's got if needed. Anyway I progressed through the setup without problems until I got to the partitionor which defaulted to 'Replace existing Linux system' this would delete Ubuntu an maybe Windows 7. I changed it to custom layout or something like that. It started a partitioner and I remembered I wanted to give ubuntu 30GB more room so I resized it. I created a new 50 GB logical partition and select it as the '/' partition, plenty more space for future Linux distributions. Here's the real problem. Soon after I hit install it said some repositorys require a network connection. It had only one option 'eth0' my motherboard has built in Ethernet but I connect to the net with a wifi card I do not have a cable long enough to reach this computer on the other side of the room. So how was I suppost to continue the setup? I pressed okay hoping it would give up and let me continue the setup but it didn't it said they was an error connecting to the Internet therefore setup could not continue. With only one option: 'Exit Installer'. GRRRR. Interestingly enough after I clicked it the disk drive's light kept flashing but the screen went black forcing me to reboot. Can anyone help me so I can install "The worlds most advanced Linux distribution"*
I was happily running F10 and against my better judgement when it offered to upgrade me to F11 I decided to give it a try. The F11 install hung at 893 of 1626 packages installed. Some SE Linux package was in process of install. On the next boot the installer fails to upgrade for a corrupted root. It says I can backtrack and do a full install, but crashes with a bug when I choose backtrack.
So here is my question - Can i edit the command line and tell the installer to full install rather than upgrade? Or am I stuck with downloading a DVD ISO and doing a full install that way. I've done F8, F9 and F10 so full install from DVD doesn't bother me.
I am trying to install Fedora 11 from a DVD. Not the live DVD, the full DVD and it hangs constantly. I had to wait 10 minutes for it to Find Storage Devices, 10 minutes to input a root password and now I am waiting for the drive shares to be setup. It's already been 10 minutes. I verified the disk and everything was fine. Why is this taking so long?
What happens if I install the DVD version of Fedora 15 over an existing installation of Fedora 15-KDE? Will it cleanly add any software I don't already have, or will it change or disrupt my installation?
I have a fedora 11 with kernel package: kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-217.2.3.fc11.i686
I would like to install the devel package for this kernel version, but I can't find it, because in the fedora repo there is only the original kernel (126.96.36.199....) and in the updates repo there is only the newest kernel package (2.6.30....)
Where can I find the packages which are between the fedora and update repos' versions?
All, just did a freash install of fedora 10, and I have no sounds at all. Speakers work and are pluged in (everything works fine with my ubuntu partition) Nothing appears to be muted in alsa or on the gnome volume control Sound card = Creative Labs CA0106 Soundblaster
I successfully installed fedora live CD KDE version on virtual PC. but I can't install the live CD Gnome desktop version. details: I just add vga=0x32D on boot, no problem booting after that. I am now log-in as live user, but I can't find the shotcut for installation on desktop "install to hard drive" but using the terminal, there's a file under Desktop, 'liveinst.desktop" I tried running it, graphical installation will appear, but during copying to hard disk, it says bad media.
my laptop currently has 8GB of RAM and I wouldn't want that going to waste. I have read about the issues with flash on the 64 bit versions of buntu. Would you recommend going 64-bit or 32-bit with PAE? also, does the 10.10 kernel have PAE enabled by default?
What is the easiest and/or safest way to migrate my Wubi 10.04 install to a full install? Currently, my Dell XPS M1530 is currently dual-booting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've decided after using Windows a total of around 4 hours over the past 6 months that I can probably let it go. So, I don't need Windows anymore and I believe I'm ready for a full install of Ubuntu. Though, I probably will wait for 11.04 to come out first.
A few ways I've thought of already are: 1) Find an external hard drive to put the Wubi files on. 2) Upload files to an storage website. 3) Temporarily put the Wubi files onto another computer (Windows). All these meaning I would then wipe my harddrive and install Ubuntu from a CD. And by "files", I mean Documents, Pictures, Downloads, etc.
EDIT: deleting all my applications, because OpenOffice.org won't reinstall on my computer due to dependency issues while attempting to install LibreOffice. So a fresh install would be nice.
I would like to download a complete Ubuntu Server on a CD/DVD to be installed on a server where there is no Internet connection in a developing country (Africa). Please let me know how I can download a full version of ubuntu Server on a CD/DVD.
I downloaded Ubuntu and was hella pumped to use it.. I downloaded it, burnt it at a 4x speed (slowest I can) I did a clean install and made it the only OS on my Hard Drive. After installing it said I didn't have connection. After a good 3-4 hours, I tried every option, I even got it to say I was connected but I still had no Internet connection. I put in my Windows 7 disc to go back to what I originally had. BUT I couldn't install it to a hard drive that wasnt formatted at NTFS, I guess Ubuntu changed my HDD. So, I put back in my Ubuntu disc and clicked 'Try Ubuntu'.. Found out that the TRIAL gives me Internet but the full version does not. I copied down the configuration that the Auto Eth connection had, and went back to the full version - I already had in the exact same configuration. So im here with a trial on my computer, can't download anything or install anything. I cant go back to Windows 7, and I need the disc in to use my computer.
I'm trying to perform a FULL install of 11.04 onto a 4GB USB drive, but the Ubuntu installer insists I must have at least 4.4GB free space.I am able to run the ISO LIVE from a 1GB usb drive created with LiLi USB Creator , but the Ubuntu installer demands at least 4.4 GB to install I can give Ubuntu the entire 4GB drive, but how do I get past the Installer's 4.4 GB requirement?I don't need the larger apps like Gimp/Office/Games to free up space. When I completely remove these apps from the persistent live install via Synaptic, I run out of space - Possibly due to cache issues. I'm very new and don't know how to proceed.I am able to FULL-install and boot Fedora successfully as its installer does not have the 4 GB limitation.Is is possible to install Ubuntu 11.04 onto the 4GB drive?
I been using ubuntu wubi on my gateway notebook for a few months now and I am ready to clean windows all my computer and only use ubuntu. the question is do I have to reinstall everything from the ground up?? can someone please give me some tips! it will take me weeks to setup everything again
I am running Ubuntu in WUBI inside Windows, my first question is, can you do a full install to a new partition through the WUBI installation? Or would it be better to partition the disk, and just install Ubuntu, then deal with the MBR issue (been a while since I had a normal install, maybe the boot problems are gone?)? And is there any actual advantage to doing a stand alone install, while still dual booting Windows? Is there any gain from it versus the WUBI install I am running now?
I have an XP laptop, currently running very low on HDD space and RAM capacity, waiting to be replaced. Very slow indeed. It recently had problems booting up, and now takes about 20 minutes to get fully started. Is it safe/advisable to run the demo version of Ubuntu from the LiveCD? I really can't afford to trash or crash my computer, it's got lots of important data on it etc.
After trying to install and partition with a live CD I restarted the PC and What do you know it reads Starting Windows 7 , Opensuse installation Completely Gone Wasted like it never even took place , and it left a gift a 100 GB less of Space on the HD . at least thats what it reads out ... how to get my full HDD back ?
My boss is asking me if there is any way to run a full version of Ubuntu from a flash drive without installing virtualbox/vmware on a windows host. I've been searching pendrivelinux.com and really haven't found anything. Can someone point me in the right direction?
I saw many linux OSes have a smooth stability with sun virtualbox.for example VBoxaddons already initially installed.I installed fedora 12 x86_x64 (within vbox in xp64bit)but only 800x600 resolution is avaible.Smooth Mouse jumping from Pc to vbox etc.
1.is there any good installer that have already packages initially installing for virtualbox ? 2.Which version listed below have x64 kernel?
I started preupgrade with a 200M /boot partition 50% full. According to the instructions, it is supposed to give me the option of downloading the stage2 installer later. It doesn't, and crashes horribly (see below).This worked from FC12 to FC13. Reparititioning will take a day because the FC12 kindly made the root file system LVM and nothing will resize it. (I tried this with FC11 -> 12 and ended up losing everything and rebuilding the 1T disk).
