Ubuntu :: Can't Copy DVD To ISO After Upgrade To 10.04
May 4, 2010
I've been backing up some of my older DVDs to my hard drive, as they were starting to get a bit scratched. Using 9.10, I had no problems. After updating to 10.04 yesterday, however, every method I try to use fails after copying about 80 to 120 MB.I'm running the amd64 version of 10.04, my optical drive is a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H, and I have installed libdvdcss2 from the Medibuntu repository. I can play the DVDs just fine, but I can't copy them.
Brasero craps out with "Error while burning. Data could not be written (Input/output error)", which based on some things I've read also pops up if data can't be read. I've tried the "Save Log" button, but the log is always empty. dd exits with "dd: reading `/dev/cdrom': Input/output error".dd_rescue starts showing nothing but bad blocks roughly at the same point where dd throws the I/O error, and if I run it in reverse, it starts showing bad blocks immediately.k3b seems to work... but it took nearly half an hour (which is a bit longer than it should have taken), it threw a "Problem while reading. Retrying from sector n" error three times, and VLC won't play the resulting ISO, either directly or mounted.
I would say that it seems like a problem with copy protection, except that I have libdvdcss2 installed and I can play the DVDs just fine. I just can't copy them to an ISO. And it's not a matter of the discs being too scratched or a problem with the drive, since as I said I can play them just fine, and I can copy them in Windows using MagicISO.Some of the DVDs I'm trying to copy aren't available anymore, but I'd hate to have to boot into Windows just to copy some discs since I do pretty much everything else in Linux.
I will like to get a text file of the packages that need to be updated in my ubuntu 9.10 machine.
The thing is that I previously did an update an its made my Zoneminder setup fail, and now I want to double check prior to doing a full upgrade.
If anybody could provide me with a command in the terminal or event synaptic, which could help get a printout or export to text file, the current version in my system with said that need to be updated to, for every packages.
I've just gotten another kernel upgrade, and need to copy it to a bootloader on another Linux sytem, so Fedora will boot, using legacy grub. The problem is that when I check /boot/grub/grub.conf, I get title Fedora (220.127.116.11-66.fc13.i686) root (hd0,2)
It's all Greek to me, but evidently it means something to grub, as that's what is in the Fedora kernel(s) that work. I can't find where this "bunch of stuff" is for the new kernel, so I can paste it into the grub file on the other system. The other system is Linux Mint9, and I've made Mint work using (legacy) grub, and deleted grub2 so that it's no longer Mint's bootloader.
My home server runs Debian Lenny, and I'm about to upgrade the system drive to a larger drive.In the process, I want to take the opportunity to reorganize the partitions and resize them. For learning purposes, I'm planning to migrate from an MBR partition table to GPT.Because of those two changes, I can't just run "dd if=/old/drive of=/new/drive" (well, not without lots more work afterwards). I could use the debootstrap process to get a fresh installation on the new system drive, but I used that technique during the last system upgrade and it's probably overkill for this.Can I just copy the partitions from the old drive to the new?Will "dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb2" work, assuming /dev/hdb2 is larger than /dev/hda1? (If so, the filesystem can be resized to take advantage of the new larger partition, right?)Would parted (or gparted) be a better tool for copying the contents of the partitions?
When I try to upgrade, I always get this message: "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64_2.6.32-35_i386.deb: failed in write on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/s2io.ko'"
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).
More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.
I have a 160GB harddrive which I installed a F12, would like to upgrade to a bigger drive, but I hate to have to re-install everything.
Recommend a good disk copy utility? The utility should be able to not only copy files, but boot sector and everything. So I just need to make a copy, change my BIOS to boot from the new drive and run everything as before.
I keep getting the following msg as I try to upgrade from 10.04 -> 10.10 ... "Could not calculate the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages. This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report." I don't think any of the issues above apply - can anyone offer advice on how to get around or "force " the upgrade
how do you copy an entire line and add that copy at the end of the same line?
For example, sometimes I rename a collection of files with a command like:
"mv oldfilename newfilename;"
I am able to add "mv" at the beginning, the semicolon at the end and sometimes replace a word in the middle, but... how to change a line "oldfilename" into "oldfilename oldfilename"... that is already long time a mystery to me...
My story thus far:I have a working, fairly customized desktop environment running Ubuntu Studio 10.10.Yesterday, I literally wasted the entire day attempting to upgrade to, and then reverting from, Ubuntu Studio 11.04 (never forget to do a grub-install when restoring your system to a previous state from backups).I am not bashing 11.04! That is not the purpose of this thread,although I believe that Unity needs some maturity,and because of this I probably won't upgrade until the next LTS.
What I would like to know is this: Is there a way that I can get the various and sundry upgrade managers to stop telling me about the 11.04 upgrade availability? I'd really like to not see it�I feel somewhat like a Luddite every time I do.
I tried to upgrade ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04. It is almost complete downloading packages,but i get this error:Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...untu2_i386.deb The HTTP server sent an invalid Content-Range header [IP: 18.104.22.168 80]I tried to change from main server to US server, but I still get this error.
I am trying to upgrade from 10.4 to 10.10. I have never had a problem upgrading before with the Update Manager. Now I get an error message when using the Update Manager. The message says, "Could not calculate the upgrade". See screenshots. I also checked the package manager for broken packages and came up with nothing.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and 2.6.35-27-generic. When I run the Upgrade Manager, the 'Distribution Upgrade' window pops up and in bold letters reads 'Running partial upgrade'.
The next line reads '>Preparing to upgrade' and sits there. Mean while, the process begins to perform a great deal of constant hard drive activity. The window's horizontal activity bar reads 'Calculating the changes' at the bottom of the 'Distribution Upgrade' window.
Using Lubuntu 10.10. I uninstalled Apache Server (it was once installed). But the update manager is cites many new Apache updates that I need. But again Apache is not installed anymore. Synaptic says it's not installed. I have a checker for orphaned packages it says nothing about Apache. Why does the updater say this? Maybe there's a "residue" of Apache somewhere?
I decided to give Ubuntu another try and installed the Studio version. During my installation it asked whether I wanted the Realtime kernel or not. I chose yes as I figured it could come in handy when I work with audio.However since this version isn't exactly Ubuntu 10.10 as promoted , I decided to install Ubuntu Desktop on top of it (trough apt-get). For the full experience. ( im not even sure if it just installed extra software and added some folders)Now my questions are:1:The Realtime kernel is it now overwritten by any other kernel that came with the Desktop installation?
2: How will the updates handle my installation once i want to upgrade to, lets say, 11.04.I'm not really sure about how the system will look at things to upgrade. Will it look at my Desktop installation or my Ubuntu Studio? ( concerning the Realtime kernel as well).Just to add some more: I'm a total Linux Noob(although im not scared to use the Terminal)
I would like to install 10.10 preferably right now.But I'm having issues, dist-upgrade won't upgrade me for 10.04 to 10.10.I tried to go into my Update Manager, but it's not recognizing any new Ubuntu versions.I don't particularly want to wipe my system, so what should i do?
I tried to upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 12, but after preupgrade got everything ready I rebooted. Anaconda searched for storage devices and then said "No upgrade root found". What can i do to continue the upgrade manually?
i want to upgrade to 11.2, however, i am very cautious about losing my files. there are files on this system which i absolutely can not afford to lose, and they are only on this system. which method of upgrade will be the best, best as in safest.
My comp has two hard drives: 1: 300gb, 10,000rpm 2: 500gb, 7200 rpm. (Both drives are SATA).First drive is loaded with 10.04 and has many programs installed, tweaks and settings made etc. Second drive has 10.10, but no changes or progs installed.I want to wipe clean the second drive and copy the entire contents of first drive onto it This will save me the trouble of doing a clean install of 10.04 on the second drive and then having to install programs , change settings etc. Is there a program available that will let me do this, so that I won't have to make any changes to second drive after the first drive has been copied to, ie I won't even have to install grub? Note that I am a novice with linux and not very good with computers generally, so the program should have an easy to use gui
