Ubuntu :: Install Error "installArchives() Failed: Selecting Previously Deselected Package Lsdvd"

Jul 6, 2010

Whenever I install something from the software center, I get this error:

installArchives() failed: Selecting previously deselected package lsdvd.

However, the package itself succeeds with installation. Looks to me like it's a problem with a kernel I installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Install Wireless Drivers - SystemError: InstallArchives() Failed

Oct 12, 2010

When I download the drivers for my Broadcom card (BCM-4312), I get this error message:


SystemError: installArchives() failed

Is there any way to fix it, or should I post to launchpad about a bug? I have 10.10. Update: When I install from the Ubuntu Software Center, it completes successfully, but I get this error message: installArchives() failed: Selecting previously deselected package glines.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom In Lucid - "System Error: Installarchives() Failed"

Nov 7, 2010

I just installed Lucid off an official CD onto a Dell Inspiron 1521 and the wireless doesn't work. It worked out of the box on 9.04, which is what I was most recently using. The wired connection does not work either. I'm not sure why. I'm aware that I probably need some sort of driver for my Broadcom card. I read that I could get the drivers off the cd, and I think I did it (although possibly not correctly.) I got what I think is the correct driver, bcmwl-kernel-source, and also something called fwcutter I think maybe by accident. They both show in the Hardware Drivers list, but when I try to activate them I get "System Error: installarchives() failed". I tried using:

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Message: The Grub Package Failed To Install Into /target

Oct 2, 2010

I was trying to install ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot system with windows and I recieved this error message: The Grub package failed to install into /target/. Without the Grub boot loader, the installed system will not boot

This Error comes up after 94% of the install. I also cannot seem to get the side by side install option to work (sometimes this option appears sometimes it does not) I am not sure but I beleive seome of the install files have been placed on the hard drive because I only get the option now to install on the hard drive and totally wipe clean or the emptiest hard drive. So how would I get the possible Ubuntu install off the Hard drive. I have used this CD to Install before it has no scratches therefore should work. Also If I have Win Xp on a Raid 0 will the Ubuntu 9.10 install ?

Ubuntu :: Dev Package For Intern.h Ruby - ERROR: Failed To Build Gem Native Extension

Oct 26, 2010

I am currently trying to get my RadRails working. There are certain tasks I cannot complete and I'm guessing that installing mongrel and some other items would get everything going. I run the update and it seems to fail horribly and I've been looking on google for the last 2 hours to the answer to this one. This is there errors I have gotten so far.

By the way I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 if that makes any difference. I have already downloaded and installed sqlite3 and sqlite dev.


>gem install -l mongrel-1.1.5.gem
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
ERROR: Error installing mongrel-1.1.5.gem:

Now at this point I am just trying to find the intern.h header file and can't find out what to download to get that.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install From Scratch / Package - Grub Failed

Aug 20, 2010

i tried my first linux installation with Fedora distro. using the live 64 usb boot version, everyhing looked fine. BUT i had issues with WINE so by recommendation, i went with Ubuntu and flushed Fedora. So, technicaly, the install works fine, during the process of installing from the live usb 64 bit 10.4 ubuntu. BUT at the end, when installing GRUB, it just simply failed! thats's a shame for me what i can tell you is the following. (thats what i think is my problem, but i need some expert help tho!)

my motherboard is a ASUS, im using 3 HDD 500GB sata2 drive, configured as a RAID in the bios, strip 0. so it presents to the OS one partition of 1.5 TB. Fedora detected it correctly, and was able to install grub on that now, during the Ubuntu install, i can chose to pick up a partition that was not used on my 1.5 TB ( i reduced my partition to 1TB and allowed 500GB to linux). Windows 7 reside on the first partition. on this disk, partition 1 is a 100MB windows bootmanager. partition 2 is windows 7 itself 1TB.

during the install of ubunto, i tell him to create a / partition, using 480GB as the third partition, and i created a 4th partition as a swap for linux. the install process the information, install the DATA on the third partition... BUT grub, can't !!! it failed... it keep looking for a /dev/sda disk... when installing GRUB, i can chose the drop down, for the 1.5TB disk, and when i press OK, he just simply try again to access /dev/sda disk... which is full of course and within a BIOS raid..........

I'm using Ubuntu jaunty and was using old version of pidgin until today. Today I had decided to install newer version of Pidgin 2.7 and uninstalled my old version from system. Because it had so many problem like not login to yahoo account.

command, it gave me following error:

So I can not install Pidgin now. If I have to install it anyway I have to disable video and voice service for Pidgin. But I would like to use Pidgin with video and voice.
