Ubuntu :: Downloaded ISO File - Errors While Installing
Mar 28, 2010
I have been having problems with Ubuntu. I just downloaded it yesterday and burned it to CD. However, when attempting to install it, I get errors. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the exact error but it stops the install. I will give further information later but wanted to ask if anyone has heard of this happening and if so, what the problems might be? I checked it with the MD5 and it appears to be a valid file, but the disk is giving me errors!
I am having problems installing the OOO_3.2.1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz install package from openoffice.org. When I unpack the tar.gz file, I get another folder labeled OOO320_m18_native_packed-1_en-US.9502, which as a folder named DEBS that has number of .deb files. How do I install the mentioned file or files? I would like to use the download for installation, so I can get the updated version of OpenOffice, and not use the Ubuntu repository.
I am trying to install a brand new installation of Opensuse 11.3 on a PC. I am using the Gnome desktop. When installing I get SO many errors saying "YAST2: package "xxx" could not be downloaded" or "installation of package "xxx.rpm failed." Ignore, Abort Retry.
I ran a checksum on the iso I downloaded from this site and it checks out. What is going on?
I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:
john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00 john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
I'm looking to run a dual boot on this laptop. I have Win7 currently installed, and I have my hard drive partitioned and ready to go for an Ubuntu install. I've downloaded the i386 CD from the website, burned it successfully. I rebooted with the disc in, and when I select install to hard drive, it shows a blinking cursor below the install screen and hangs there. I installed the ISO to a bootable USB drive and tried to install it that way, same thing. I even tried downloaded one of the alternative CDs and installing it both ways. Same problem. Ive installed Ubuntu on this laptop before and it's ran successfully. I believe it was 9.04.

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Mini 10v and for some reason I just realized that my wired network connection is not working for some reason. And not in windows either. But my wireless works in windows. So I have downloaded the latest Broadcom STA wireless drivers for linux and have tried to follow this tutorial to install it. But when I get to:
make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean I can't get it to work. It says:
make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic' scripts/Makefile.build:44: /usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic/pwd/Makefile: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic
As a long time Windows user, I am stuck on the basics of installing and running downloaded Linux applications. I've tried to read a few tutorials but am still baffled. I am using a Puppy based boot CD and, of course, the applications that come with the Puppy all work fine. It is when I try to add something new that I become lost. Example: I just downloaded a Linux version of the Firefox browser.
I click on the downloaded file in the Download Manager and kinda expect the thing to give me a executable set-up file, but just get a whole bunch of files. One available option is to "extract" them. I create a folder to extract them to and "extract". With Firefox I see nothing in that folder. With a few other applications, I see an extracted list of files but and try to find one file that will magically start and install or boot an application, but nothing ever happens. So, how does one download , extract, install, and then run a basic application? The references I have found on the Internet tend to be rather old or more complex that my brain can handle.
I recently downloaded eclipse IDE and Seamonkey, which are both currently executable files, but they do not show up under 'applications' on the top panel. Is there any way for me to change this such that they can appear under 'Applications' in any of the subcategories?
Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.
I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.
Just installed ubuntu server 11.04 to have a play with. Ran through the installer and selected to setup as a virtual machine host. When booting I get 3 errors
Code: [ 7.847619] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D === [ 7.847624] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: ======= misaligned reg 0x0060081D === [ 8.651603] [drm] nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: unknown connector type: 0xff!! === Any insignt into what may be causing this would be well appreciated.
It may be also worth noting that I dont see the grub screen. My monitor reports "out of range" I also did have ubuntu server 10.10 on here previously which installed without issue. (It wasnt actually being used for anything) I'm currently trying a reinstall hoping the errors will go away but any info would be much appreciated.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
Running Ubuntu 10.04 currently. But for some reason cant seem to find what im looking for about making USB drives bootable once ive downloaded the .iso file i want. USB-creator-gtk seems to only work with the ubuntu family. ImageWriter only works with .img files? I want to play around with other linux distros from .iso. I tried makebootfat and got some errors. ill post them later if you guys think makebootfat is the way to go but i think im making it to too hard on myself.
I'm trying to install 32 bit mimio software for an interactive whiteboard onto a 64 bit laptop running ubuntu.
I've used getlibs to install some of the missing libraries but am still having truoble with the install.
The output is as follows:

I'm a bit stumped about the GLIBCXX errors .... I have libstdc++ but I reckon i need some symbolic links or something .. I need to get pointed in the right direction. glibc is installed but I don't know what glibcxx is.
How do I know the time and date of a file downloaded from the net. Is it possible at all? If I want to know when the downloaded file such as a text file was created ie written by the author if not mentioed at all in the entire document. The command I use locally to know file creation time is given below.
Code: ls -l filename.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 691 Dec 3 11:12 filename.txt
I am very new to linux. I just got the dual boot working a couple of days ago. Now I downloaded MATLAB (2009b) from my university website. It came in a zip file...well I have no clue how to install it. I looked at the instruction manual, it doesn't really explain much.
I've got something or someone downloading from me, probably scraping, and i can't figure out WHAT is using all of my bandwidth, and WHERE it's coming from.I don't know what SERVICE its from (eg, is this an apache request, or DNS DOS), what FILES are being accessed (if any, eg apache requests/scrape), and what IP is requesting them.My apache logs isn't showing anything that makes me thing i'm being scrapped. I'm kinda stuck in a brain fart right now and can't remember how to track this down, but the long and short is that all of my band width is being consumed, and 1 of my CPU cores is staying maxed out ("top" says that it's the avahi service).I've shut off the following services 1 by 1 to see if any of them would cause a drop in network usage, and none of them did:
I followed the following step given on an openSuSE site but I am still encountering the same problem i.e. a phpinfo.php file gets downloaded when I browse it in my browser.In case the browser wants to save your php files instead of displaying the content, you should enable php support in the /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf file. Add the following line to it, just after the <Directory /home/*/public_html> line and restart the server.Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/php5.conf
