Installation :: Ubuntu 10.04 Not Seeing Other Installed OS / Sort It?

Apr 30, 2010

I am installing 10.04 on my laptop which currently has Windows 7. I plan on dual booting my laptop and figured that just like prior releases it will detect my Windows 7 OS and say "Hey I found Win7, do you want to wipe the partition or install side by side and use grub?"

Well in this case, its telling me that no installed operating systems have been found and I only get the option to use the whole disc or I can go ahead and use gparted to create my own partitions.

Fedora :: Gnome Power Manager Not Installed Correctly / Sort It?

Nov 11, 2009

I'm running 10/11 on a toshiba satellite. i kinda got tired of loosing stuff because i mis-timed the battery discharge, so some months ago i pulled the battery and just ran on the adapter (back ground, i don't know if it's nothing, related to, or caused the problem).

monday morning fired her up - boom got the power "gnome manager not installed correctly"message. tuesday, googled gnome then power then... you get the route, and found, read the stuff, did the yum remove...., did the yum install.... everthing seemed cool. 2nd reboot she stopped at the "f/infinity/balloon" kinda logo.

i went to verbose startup and - all sorts of services were failing; the word deprecate(d, ing, tion) came up a lot "device full..." came up a fair bit as well. when i tried the "yum remove" approach again i got [rpmdb: write: 0x1fd48b0, 8192: No space left on device]. similarily on "yum install" same kinda stuff - deprecation, BaseExpection, deprecated..... kinda long winded. up till now (13 years)

Programming :: SORT Command Versus Unix SORT

May 4, 2010

We switched from unix to linux and we have an old report that extracted data from a database, output to an ascii file and then sorted the results in the file based on different arguments. The report now blows up when it runs,and I can only guess it is because the options for sort on linux differ slightly from unix.For example, here is one of the commands issued from within the report app that ran on the old unix box:

if sort-sequence = "descending" then
'sort -t~" -f +3.0f -4.0 +5.0r -6.0 -f '
'sort -t~" +3.0f -4.0 +1.0f -2.0 -f'

I will eventually rewrite the report to store the data in a local table, but I can simply adjust the options to suit the requirments of linux. Basically, I need to know if this can be a quick fix for the short term.

Installation :: PC Won't Boot Ubuntu / Sort It?

Feb 22, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu on my laptop running Windows XP, and created a cd with ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso on it, about 706 Mb. Anyway, I've tried powering off and on, and my PC doesn't try to run the install CD in the CD drive. It just ignores it and starts windows. I've done this several times. I remember one time it asked how I wanted to install ubuntu, and I selected the "inside of windows" option so I can boot either Windows XP or ubuntu. But nothing happens.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Boot Into U10.04 After Installiing On Second HD / Sort It?

Sep 8, 2010

Sorry for the really noob question.
I have Win XP on sdc. Boots fine
Installed 10.04 on a new sdb.
System still boots into XP without showing a menu. There is no grub loader and I couldn't find a place in the .iso install where the grub could be change from sdb to sdc. "Change location" only allowed sdb.
So what did I do incorrectly and how do I fix it.
Needless to say I've read many posts about multiboot, but this old brain can't determine what I did incorrectly

Installation :: Failed To Install Ubuntu 10.10 / Sort It?

Oct 12, 2010

I downloaded and burned the iso at 12x speed and configured the BIOS so that the computer would boot from a CD. I ran the Live CD and everything seemed to be fine until i was informed that the installation had failed because of problems with my hard drive. But worst was to come when i reconfigured the BIOS so as to boot from the hard drive and all i got was a completely blank screen. I don't have a Ubuntu 10.04 Live cd handy so i have to use a different distro's live cd just to get on line.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Can't Recognize Windows Partition / Sort It?

Apr 29, 2010

This is my first time to post a thread.I'm not native English-speaker,so my English is poor.And I wish you can understand what I mean.
I have used wubi for months.Today I decide to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my harddisk.I create a liveUSB to install 10.04.But the problem during installing is when partition detecting,the windows partition can't be detected.It shows 'Ubuntu' on /dev/sda1,but in fact it is the windows partition.I ignore it and go on.After all done,10.04 can work well,but windows can't be booted.
Then I try to use 9.04 CD to install,and it shows 'Widows NT/2000/XP' on /dev/sda1 correctly.At last,both 9.04 and windows xp can be booted.
Is it the problem involving the difference between CD and liveUSB,or 10.04 and 9.04?
Can you tell me why and give me a hand?

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop With No Removeable Media Of Any Sort?

Jun 7, 2010

I've got an Acer Aspire One. I don't like windows. I have used Ubuntu many times in the past and love it. I want to install it on this thing, but it's as minimalist a computer as it gets. No DVD drive or anything. It weighs about as much as a small bottle of soda. I have no access to USB Drives, External DVD drives, External floppies, external anything. I do have a cat but I don't think that's going to help. In fact, he's trying to step on my keyboard Anyway, I know you can do a "Frugal install" off the hard disk but I have absolutely no idea what it is.

What exactly is a frugal install? Can I partition the hard drive and leave my windows alone (Got some data, programs and porn holding me down) with a frugal install?Is there a difference between a frugal install and a fancy high-tech DVD install when it's finished (E.G Limitations, stability, chances of computer asploding)?

Installation :: Can't Put Boot Loader On New Ubuntu Partition / Sort It?

Jul 22, 2010

I am tying to add Ubuntu 10.04 desktop i386 to my Windows 7 PC. I do not want to mess with the Windows boot loader, so as the sentence from the guide at the bottom states, tried to put GRUB onto the newly created partition for Ubuntu. I could not because upon choosing the device (which turned out to /dev/sda5) , the "OK" button was disabled

"Manual" option was chosen above - on a second try, I chose "use all available free space" and Ubuntu created #5 and #6 on SCSI1 (0, 0, 0). The new device was /dev-sda-1, but again, Ubuntu would not put the boot loader on it.

"If you have a problem with changing the MBR code, you might prefer to just install the code for pointing to GRUB to the first sector of your Ubuntu partition instead."

Ubuntu Installation :: U10.10 - Fails To Boot From Disc / Sort It?

Nov 13, 2010

I have an ASUS G51J notebook with Windows 7 installed. I was following This Guide. I set aside about 100GB for the Unallocated partition. When I started my laptop, I chose to boot from CD (which has an Ubuntu 10.10 ISO on it). I saw a purple background with two icons at the bottom of the screen, and eventually "Ubuntu" appeared in the center with a few dots underneath it. These dots would change color from left to right like a loading bar.

This is where my issue comes up. My friend was using this same CD on his Dell laptop and his desktop which has a XFX motherboard, Q6600 processor, and Invidia 470 graphics card. After this "loading bar" was done, he would be asked if he wanted to boot or install Ubuntu.

This didn't happen for me. What happened instead was that I saw what looked like my Windows desktop after having gone through a meat grinder. There were various icons randomly in pieces all over the place. The only icon that was in one piece (by chance) was my shortcut to Skype.

Has anyone seen this before? Am I doing something wrong? My friend was saying that maybe I should try with a fresh reinstall of Windows and try again. I wasn't even given the choice to just boot from disc. It got to the point where I expected it to give me the options to do so, but instead the Kansas version of my desktop shows up after being hit by an F5

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get HP Laptop To Boot From Live USB - Sort It?

Apr 25, 2011

Fed up with Windows and ready to become a Linux convert. Here's the only problem:

I've created no less than four separate Live USB distros - all using different USB sticks -
yet my HP Pavilion dv7 refuses to recognize any of them as "bootable devices."

1) Have formatted USB sticks in FAT16 & FAT32 - neither made a difference.

2) Have created bootable USB sticks using Ubuntu Minimal Live install; Ubuntu full Live install; PuppyLinux Live install; even a simple gparted live install - none will boot.

3) Have checked & re-checked that BIOS is set to boot first from USB drive device.

4) 2 of the 4 USB sticks are new, fresh out of the packaging; and 3 of the 4 USB sticks are each from different manufacturers - so I'm fairly certain it's not a issue of a particular brand being incompatible, nor is it due to the sticks being corrupted somehow.

5) Each of the 4 live distros appears to have downloaded just fine - all necessary files appear to be in order.

6) Have tried using Unetbootin, Ubuntu's own live usb tool, and 1 or 2 others - all have failed to boot my HP laptop.

7) Have even tried removing all non-essential hardware before booting - even booting with no hard drives installed - system still returns the error "no bootable device detected."

This laptop is only 2 years old; I know it should be able to boot from USB. I can boot from a (rather old) SliTaz distro on CD just fine - but I need a persistent USB stick so I can easily add packages as needed, etc...s.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Will No Longer Boot Into XP After Upgrade / Sort It?

May 8, 2010

My knowledge of how Linux works is very limited. I've used it for about a year, but just doing very basic tasks (browsing the Internet, listening to music, etc).

Anyway, I upgraded to the newest edition of Ubuntu and installed the new Grub as the update seemed to recommend installing it to every partition and hard drive. I've seen that other people are now having issues from doing that as well.

I am able to boot into Linux just fine; it is working great. However, when I attempted to load Windows XP from Grub, the computer would just restart. I followed the recommendation listed here: which seemed to fix the problem for Windows 7 users. Now, all I get when I attempt to load XP is a blank screen with nothing but a blinking cursor (but hey, at least the computer isn't just automatically re-booting, that's some sort of progress...maybe...)

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Broke After Wubi Upgrade / Sort It?

Aug 18, 2010

I beleive I had version 9.x installed. I upgraded once and everything was fine. I went the upgrade manager again and it found some more upgrades. The upgrade messed with grub. It then told me there were no new upgrades. Then I rebooted and it says

Try (hd0,0): NTFS5

Then the screen clears and there is some text I can't read and then it says command not found. Then it reboots.

Is there a way to fix this?
If not is there a way to recover the files from the disk image file.
