Ubuntu :: Installation On Xp Error Message That Says:" Unbuntu Installer : And Error Occurred: Coercing To Unicode?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.

Ubuntu :: Buffer I/o Error On Device Loop0 Logical Block?

Jan 13, 2011

i have a inspiron 1520 laptop which is starting to slow down some so i thought linux would help because all i do is internet use, so i download it from another computer and mount it to a usb flash drive like the site says, (netbook remix latest version) then i put it in my laptop and it loads all the way and i press try and after about 10 minutes of loading it lets me try. so that was ok really slow but i thought id install it to hard drive to see if it improved speed. so the next time i start my laptop i get Buffer i/o error on device loop0 logical block xxxxxx so i redo the usbflashdrive no errors switch usb ports and same thing, ive done the switch usb ports and redo the flash drive about 4 times im really getting mad at linux before i even have it installed.

Hardware :: Buffer I/O Error On Device Sdb1?

Feb 3, 2010

I have an external usb disk connected to a Debian desktop. A couple of days ago these messages started appearing in dmesg

When this appears the disk becomes unavailable and I have to remove and plug it in and mount again. After that it works couple of hour and then the problem appears again. Is this a hardware problem?

Hardware :: Buffer I/O Error Device Hdc Logical Block 15

I am trying to debug the issue of a desktop that has for the last two weeks started having kernel panics at boot time.

Fedora :: Kernel: Buffer I/O Error On Device Dm-0, Logical Block 124

Nov 28, 2009

I have 2 hdds, with encrypted / and /home. Besides there are four other (encrypted ext4) partitions I use rarely. In Fedora 11 at boottime I gave the luks passphrase for / and home and the system booted as intended.

Whenever I needed those extra encrypted partitions I mounted them in Nautilus. Now, in Fedora 12 at boottime dracut tries to open all the encrypted partitions, / and /home are mounted fine, but opening all the other partitions gave the following messages in messages.log:


dracut: luksOpen /dev/sdb6 luks-02a0e706-a26f-4019-a2a0-88a0366a994d
kernel: Buffer I/O error on device dm-0, logical block 124

kernel: Buffer I/O error on device dm-0, logical block 124
kernel: Buffer I/O error on device dm-0, logical block 124


...and these messages are repeated with the other partiitions, and the boot time takes very, very long. How can I tell dracut to ignore those extra encrypted partitions at boottime?

CentOS 5 :: Buffer I / O Error On Device HDD - Logical Block 176935

Sep 4, 2009

I just downloaded an iso of the latest CentOS dist (5.3) and burned it to disk. I booted from the CD and received the following error:
Memory for crash kernel (0x0 to 0x0) not within permissible range
Illegal mode for this track or incompatible medium -- (asc=0x64, ascq-0x00)
The failed "read 10" packet command was:
Buffer I/O error on device hdd, logical block 176935

(This error message repeats for another 9 or 10 times then it says the following)
Red Hat nash version starting
Setting up new root fs
(Then there are some unmounts which are old /dev, /proc, /sys. At this point a series of steps begin).

Setting Clock
Starting udev
Loading default keymap (us)
Setting hostname local host.localdomain
Setting up logical volume management
Checking file systems

These are just some of the steps that appear after the above error is displayed, all of the steps that load have an ok status. After those are completed I get to a text prompt - localhost login: At this point my keyboard does not seem to respond, pressing enter or any of the other keys seems to have no effect. I noticed that during the load process I could toggle the light for caps and num lock, but at the login screen it does'nt work. So at this point I'm not sure if I'm having a technical issue or if its just another case of an user error.
