Ubuntu Installation :: After Update System Unable To Find Home Dir

Mar 10, 2011

Yesterday did a fresh install of UNR 10.10, all went well with that. After the first log in it found the Wifi and checked for updates. Updated the system and then it went to restart the system due to a Kernel upgrade. Once I did this, that is when the issues started. Firstly when booting up, it just sat at the Ubuntu boot up screen saying:
"The disk drive for /home is not ready yet or not present"
'Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery'

So firstly I hit S, this presented me with several error boxes (as expected due to setup/config files sitting in my /home folder), I then found that I wasn't able to connect to my wifi (not that it can't see it, just that it won't connect) each time I try and connect it just comes up saying that the wifi is disconnected. Of all the things to fail I was expecting the Bluetooth to and it didn't. Anyway the computer specs are: MSI Wind U100, upgraded to 2 Gig Ram, 320Gig HDD, and wifi card is the Realtek RTL8187SE.

HDD is setup as:
4Gig for Swap (/dev/sdb1)
6Gig for / (/dev/sdb5)
Remainder is /home (/dev/sdb6) (I did make this an encrypted partition)
Can't do any screen shots as I am not able to connect to the internet on that machine (having to use another computer in the house). I have tried to view the fstab file and I am not able to.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Kubuntu 10.4 - Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

Aug 15, 2010

I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.

He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:

OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

May 1, 2010

busybox v1.13.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system

I have verified the disk i created is valid and used it to install on my laptop.

However, now i am trying to install on a brand new system:

GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor

Western Digital WD15EARS Hardrive

After several failed attempts to install Ubuntu I installed windows XP with no problem.

I have seen several posts about re-aligning this model of hard drive for the 4k blocks.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Find Medium Containing Live File System

May 3, 2011

I have a 4 core Sandy Bridge Win7-64 system running Parallels Desktop 4. I created a new VM with a CDROM connected to the 11.04 ISO. It perks for a little while showing some Ubuntu stuff then I get the console message "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system".I don't get this. It is obviously booting from the CDROM. I'm guessing it does not like the unformatted disk. Why doesn't it offer to format the disk of start the installation prcess? Is it something else?

Ubuntu :: Installation - Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

Aug 9, 2011

Background info: So I installed 11.04 32 bit and it messed my computer up therefore after trying everything I got rid of it, now I've been trying to install the 10.04 long support version from the official ubuntu website and it doesn't seem to be working. Neither the 32 bit version or the 64 bit. To convert the iso etc. etc. I used "Universal-USB-Installer-1.8.6.0" which is reccommended from the ubuntu website and it didn't work. So I tried "unetbootin-win-549" which a friend recommended to me - didn't work either.

Main problem: The menu loads up when I turn on the computer and whether I click on the install ubuntu, or try ubuntu from usb option - both go to the ubuntu screen where the dot's under "ubuntu" flash for about 2 minutes before taking me to a screen where the following message appears: Code: (initframs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system And after about 5 seconds intervals, messages similar to this appear for about 7 or 8 times:

Code: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 7. error -110 new high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address 8 Each time they appear the parts which differ is the numbers from the text above i.e. usb 2-3....

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Home Folder Open In 11.04 Unity System

Jun 11, 2011

I got 11.04 installed on my laptop a few weeks ago and all seemed well. I've only used this machine for general surfing and downloads (legal of course )Anyway, last night it started to display some odd or should I say, show stopping issues.

Issue 1. Clicking the Home Folder button at the top of the left launcher does nothing. Well when I say nothing is does dim the icon, the hard drive turns but no folder opens. OS function 101 failure.

Issue 2. Inserting a USB stick (that just last week we working fine) does nothing. Again, when I say nothing, the harddrive light goes on, but the USB drive does not open.

Issue 3. Unable to get my home folder open in the Ubuntu 11.04 Unity system I downloaded Sunflower, a file browser app. It runs fine from the command line, but when the I decided to make a shortcut to this on the desktop, I right clicked on the desktop in order to use the Create Launcher option. But guess what? The right click does not reveal any menu. Right clicking on the desktop does nothing.

This is not good enough for what is suppose to be a mature stable OS!I really do not want to go to Fedora 15 or <shudder> Windows 7 so, how do I fix this broken system? Is there some system repair that reinstalls the OS or something? Is there a system repair that does not require me getting all the updates again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Doesn't Find Update?

Normally Update Manager always finds the update to the next version of Ubuntu. It still hasn't given me any notion whatoever. I allready changed the settings from regular to LTS, but nothing changes. There are updates to the kernel, but I cannot download them, so I'm kinda stuck here.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Find Active Update Repository For 10.3

Aug 12, 2010

I am trying to update four OpenSUSE 10.3 servers. This worked once on one server, but I have been unable to repeat that success. I use yast's Online Update to select repositories, but at the end of the repository refresh they keep coming back with 'No active update source is available. Exit Online Update now?' I get this error:
Download failed: File /repodata/repomod.xml not found on media: [URL]

It appears to connect to remote repositories, but always fails. Is it realistic for me to expect to update 10.3, or is it a lost cause? I am not ready to jump to 11 yet, but I am required to update them. I am a newb, so I am not clear on the process. Are package versions locked in place for specific versions of OpenSUSE? If so, how can I find out what the final versions were for 10.3 so that I can at least tell my auditors that they are as up-to-date as they can be?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Failure On .ICEauthority And Separate /home

Mar 26, 2010

I created a separate /home partition after installing Karmic on a new computer using this HowTo :

[URL]

I copied all the files from /home/user using

find . -depth -print0 | sudo cpio --null --sparse -pvd /new/

On booting after the change, the new /home is correctly on a separate partition BUT during boot I get a message :

Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user/.ICEauthority

I checked and the ownership and permissions for /home/user/.ICEauthority are correct. The suggested remedy of deleting the file & waiting for it to be recreated doesn't work either. But when I compare other hidden files in the new /home/user directory, quite a few now have their ownership changed to root. & I am unable to connect to my external monitor because of a permission problem (probably connected).
