OpenSUSE Install :: Two Boot Flags Showing On Clean Install?

Oct 24, 2010

There are several posts here about not being able to boot without the install disk, which is also my case. I imagine the solution for me should be easy, because I only have a single installed OS on this machine, which is a MacBook Pro 2.1. Here's the result of fdisk -l:

Code:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

[Code]...

Partition table entries are not in disk order sda4 is a partition that did not appear in the partition overview when I installed the operating system. I thought I'd look for help here while I continue to research the problem myself.

OpenSUSE Install :: LVM Drive Not Showing Up In Clean 11.4 Install?

Jun 11, 2011

so excuse me if I don't use the correct terminology, but what I have are two USB external hard drives joined into one drive using LVM.I originally set this up using 11.2 and then used it for months on a system with 11.1. The LVM drive would show up in the file system as /dev/mapper/Media-Media.I then upgraded that system from 11.1 to 11.4 using a clean install and a "minimal server" selection. Now, the LVM doesn't show up anywhere. In the YaST disk partitioner, it shows a "/dev/Media" as being of the type LVM2 Media with no logical volumes

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Not Showing After Dual Boot Clean Install?

Mar 21, 2011

I installed Windows 7 and then Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits. The Ubuntu installation went fine but when rebooting a "check disk" appeared and since then my PC keeps booting directly on Windows. I tried all the GRUB reinstallation methods of the GRUB2 Community Documentation with the live CD but none worked.

Below is the output of the Boot Info script found on several threads.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install 11.4 Dual Boot System Grub Error?

Apr 27, 2011

I did a fresh install of SuSE 11.4 (WIN7 TOO) and changed my Larger HD1 to the first HD. I was installing and got this error first: the boot loader is installed on a partition that does not lie entirely below 128GB The system might not boot if BIOS supports only lba24 (result is error during install grub mbr) status loc dev/sdb6

I continued with the install and then got:

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Clean Install Will Not Boot Past Splash?

May 18, 2011

I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?

After shutting down linux the first time on suse 11.2 the grub loader won't show me the option to boot windows. I tried using wine and dosemulator to get to windows and it doesn't work because I don't know the file name to open windows.

Their are certain programs that I can only run in windows and I need windows open to install them.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot After Zypper Upgrade / Showing Black Screen?

Apr 14, 2011

I could upgrade openSUSE 11.4 on my desktop but when trying to do the same procedure on my girlfriend's laptop, after the zypper update part (and the reboot asked), now we can get it to boot.

After selecting suse from GRUB it shows some code (too fast to be read) then black screen forever. I erased the VGA option before booting and now it gets stuck in

Code:

We don't have any idea of what to do ;__;

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install = No Desktop Just Green Screen?

Nov 13, 2009

Did a clean install with 11.2 after being very impressed with the LiveCD. After installation process finished, laptop booted up and I had a green screen, no icons and a mouse cursor. REALLY liked the way the OS performed on the LIVECD and would like to give it a real shot.I can install Fedora 11, Ubuntu, Madriva and Mint Linux with no problem on the same Toshiba laptop.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install To Repair System?

Jan 21, 2010

I was trying to upgrade to 11.2 from 11.1 by upgrading the OS online. However my internet connection failed and the upgrade has now messed up my system. I have a dual-boot system with Windows XP and I'm wondering if it would be OK in getting the DVD and selecting update? Or do I have to change the boot log etc?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean 11.2 Install Afterwards Hang On Load?

Jun 6, 2010

Okay I did a clean network install on 11.2 on my test machine.Old gateway box but it had min requirements. It will load completely into failsafe mode but will not complete a normal boot option.The default Green background images comes up and the cursor comes up, but I let it sit for 30 minutes and nothing. I did a hard reboot, still hung on cursor and green back ground. Booted again but this time choose failsafe, boot up completely. Am I doing something wrong? I have installed many many version of Linux in the past never had a problem like.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install Of 11.2 On Thinkpad

Dec 16, 2009

I did try to do an update from 11.1, but that killed the thing dead, no x, no kde, just a command line log in.So clean install, leave /home alone and we seem to be firing on all cylinders, except.Hopeless networkmanager still will not connect, it hasn't in any version of K4, truly, from my point of view, an embarrassment as the default network connector. But, trying to re-install WICD I have run into a snag.When I click on one click in Webpin, it asked if it should install it, Oh yes please, asks for the su password and. opens konqueror with the background description of the RPM. But will not install. I tried downloading the RPM and it gives me a bit of a list of dependency problems. None of which I can seem to resolve through the usual repos.Also in the 11.2 install I have been defaulted to the "desktop" kernel, when I used to have a PAE, should I change the kernel to PAE?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Clean Install Of 9.10?

Feb 8, 2010

few months back I did a clean install of 9.10 from 9.04 (wanted to clear room so decided against upgrade path) and since then I've been really struggling to boot into it. I've used Ubuntu since 7.04 and never had any issues with it - these issues have only started happening since my upgrade to 9.10. And I was hoping that 9.10 would be the release I could persuade her indoors to not boot into Windows XP!

Anyway my problem is that when I choose Ubuntu 9.10 from the boot list it gets to the point where the Ubuntu symbol is splashed up (with the brown background and the light shining on it) and then the little progress bar underneath freezes and the whole box freezes. It doesn't respond to any keypresses like the "magic" ones and I have mashed CTRL ALT F1 plus others keys repeatedly. Caps lock doesn't respond either so looks like completely frozen, though worth noting that the hard drive still sounds like it's spinning.

I've tried with every boot command under the sun (noapci, nosplash, quiet, noapic etc.) and none of them make any difference bar two - apci=noirq starts the desktop occasionally but with no windows manager, and irqpoll stops the freeze but it never loads the desktop or manager. Both these last two commands work about 1 in 10 boots or so but usually it freezes. I can also sometimes press Escape as soon as the Ubuntu symbol shows on screen and sometimes (about 1 in 5 tries) it gets into the desktop, but only if I hit it before it freezes up. The above does point to an IRQ issue but wondering what has changed since 8.10 and 9.04 which worked perfectly?

I've also booted into recovery mode and updated/fixed packages but the same thing happens with the recent 2.6.31-19 generic as well as -17, -14 etc. As per above I'm dual booting with Windows XP as the default boot option (wife's orders) but don't think this is related.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 64 Clean Install Will Not Boot?

Jun 23, 2011

I was having some troubles installing windows 7 (install hang with no solution) and decided Ubuntu might be a decent route to install windows, or maybe I'd be satisfied and stay with Ubuntu. Downloaded the official version of 11.04 AMD64, burnt the iso to DVD using windows, and went through the installation process (Having already formatted the drive), only to find that once I removed the installation media, as prompted, I was greeted with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. There were no errors during the installation and I can boot using the liveCD no problem. I am installing this on a 2.8ghz i7 processor, 8GB of DDR3, and installing it on a 120GB SSD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Won't Boot New Clean Install

Feb 24, 2010

A friend of mine asked me to install ubuntu on his system as he finally got enough of all the flaws and problems in his vista. I said no problems ill have ubuntu up and running in no time! Well this is 2 days later and still nothing, he's computer refuses to boot from cd, i been changing the boot sequence allot but no indications of it wanting to boot the cd at all, whatever i try. So i made a bootable ubuntu usb-stick, doesnt work everytime i boot but sometimes... i get the load-up-screen, select install ubuntu, go ahead with the install, everything goes like clockwork. "restart is needed" sure, i restart it. grub says something like cant boot, or nothing to boot on hdd.. and thats that. ive reinstalled it several times (10+), trying ext2,ext3,ext4, partitioning it diffrently, ive tried it all. i even took out the scsi hdd, and tried an old ide-drive i had, gave me the exact same error..

i dont have all the specs but ill write what i know:

Ubuntu :: HP Compaq Nx7010 Won't Boot After Clean Install

Apr 29, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 from a live cd, on a HP Compaq nx7010! I selected to use the entire drive, so nothing else is on there! The problem is when I start up the machine it wont boot into ubuntu! Instead I get a menu with 4 options:

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (Recovery mode)
Memory test (Memtest86+)
Memory test (Memtest86+, serial console 115200)

If I choose the first menu option I get the following error:

error: no such device: 07850f66-baab-4a48-B6C4-01268fee1523
Press any key to continue...

Pressing a key gets me back to the menu again! I have tried to install several times, thinking that maybe, just maybe something went wrong with the installation! But no such luck! I have also tried with different flavours such as ubuntu, xubunt and kubuntu with the same results!

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS EeePC 901 Does Not Boot After Clean Install / What To Do?

Nov 23, 2010

I tried to run Ubuntu 10.10 - Netbook and Ubuntu 10.4 live CDs on my ASUS 901.
Both run well.

But neither reboot after clean install.
After the machines BIOS splash screen there is just a blinking cursor at the left top of the screen. No ubuntu/linux/kernel messages whatsoever.

I tried installing both versions on both SSD-s (4GB & 32GB) and ensured the BIOS was correctly set to boot from the correct one.

I searched the net quite a lot but didn't find anything that could relate to an ASUS 901

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Failure On Clean Install

Feb 14, 2010

I'm having a problem installing Ubuntu Studio 9.10-alternate-amd64 onto my machine. This is the third attempt and I keep running into the same problem. Grub Boot Loader will only install to 16% when a screen pops up:

Ubuntu Installer Main Menu

Choose the next step in the install process:

choose language
configure the keyboard
detect and mount CD-rom
etc...

choosing the option "Install Grub boot loader on a hard disk" sends me back to the Grub install and once again at 16% the Ubuntu Installer Main Menu pops up. Choosing the option "Install the Lilo Boot Loader on a hard disk" resolves in an Lilo-install failure and i'm directed back to the Installer Main Menu. The option "Finish the installation" sends me back to the same menu..I'm stumped as to what to do... a disk check ensured me that the instal-dvd is valid though I can't get past this silly install menu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Of 11.4 Goes Well But After Rebooting - X Does Not Start?

Apr 15, 2011

I have recently done clean installs of 11.4 on two computers and then done clean re-installs but still have the same problem. Each time, the install was without flaw and I could download the updates, when offered, in the install process. At the end of the install I can log into KDE and everything works. However, after shutting down, on reboot, I only get a command line login. I can either login and run startx or use su and do init 3 followed by init 5. This tells me I am getting to runlevel 5 but X isn't starting. Either of those approaches gives me the KDE login. However, after that I have to manually start the network in YAST. I also think I had had to restart CUPS but I have only got as far as installing a printer once so I can't be absolutely sure that happened. As I indicate, this is fully reproducible. Anyone give me a clue as to what is going on?

Ubuntu :: SSH Server Only Wants To Work On The Very First Boot Of A Clean Install - No Route To Host Error

Apr 22, 2011

Ok so I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 Server Edition. On the very first boot, everything seems to run perfectly. I can SSH into it from any remote computer with no problems. However, the installation of certain things calls for a system reboot, which 2 days ago never would have been a problem. But now for some reason, the SSH server only wants to work on the very first boot of a clean install. After I reboot it, I get the ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.180 port 22: No route to host error. The absurd part is sshd is running! I've even tried restarting sshd, restarting the server, and using both 64 and 32 bit installs. The only way I can get anything to connect to it is by using ssh localhost. It won't even let me connect using the IP on the local machine!

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Up Orphaned Files In 11.2 Gnome?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Up The System - Is This An Impossible Task?

Aug 11, 2010

Upon boot up, I get lots of new lines added to log files in /var/log concerning apparent problems during boot up. The boot sequence does attempt to show the failure or success during each step as it transitions to the final run level, but is there a good manual or procedure on how to fix each transition, so as to cut down on the amount of pesky warning or error messages?

I am a bit concerned that running a system with warning messages is a bit like running a car low on oil. In the past the goal was to have a perfectly running linux system that came up all the way, and yes, I have seen such. This meant knowing how kernel things work, etc, but still, I would think we would want to pay attention to such things as

[ 1127.997470] ALSA usbaudio.c:1274: 2:1:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x1
[ 894.166132] isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16

and others and work to bring them to a minimum.

Right now I am working on things piecemeal as I go along, and it will take a lot of time.

I didn't dump the 10K's of log files into this message forum, in case someone asks to see the details, but I am just striving to have the system come up clean, and not with a message like:

Warning: Skipped 98 probes

(whatever that means?? did the kernel just mean that it knew that it is supposed to check 98 things but failed? or that 98 things should have gotten checked but didn't?)

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Log In File-system Is Full / Clean Up Any Unnecessary Files?

Nov 24, 2010

I can't login due to my file-system being full. I found the main area with the large usage. Var/log is taking 99.5% of my var folder. On a full file-system scan Var/log is taking up 85% of disk use. File-system capacity is 36 gig. Temp is cleared after each boot.

What can I do to clean up any unnecessary files. I can only boot in safe mode and have limited navigation skills. To get scan results I booted a live-disc.

OpenSUSE :: Banshee 1.8.0 Not Showing Up After Install?

Oct 31, 2010

When I installed banshee 1.6.1 from the default repository it worked fine. But I wanted the newest version (1.8.0) for its new features and so I've tried both adding their (openSUSE 11.3) repository and doing it through yast and also installing it (for openSUSE 11.3) straight from their website with the "1-click install". Both of these methods did the exact same thing, just the latter added the repository for me (much simpler/lazier). Now, after installing banshee 1.8.0, it does not show up in the application launcher menu. So, I'm not sure how to open it and/or add it to the kickoff menu.
