Sep 21, 2010

I've generated a preseed for my Ubuntu Lucid installation, its loading ubiquity automatically (from kernel parm automatic-ubiquity) and it fills in all the values from the preseed file its given. However it displays the Ubiquity page "Ready to Install" (I am using the kubuntu ubiquity package) and I have to click the button install for it to start. How can I get it to skip this and just start installing?

Slackware :: Installing / After Loading Kernel It Asks For Keyboard Configuration, But Keyboard (usb Wireless) Doesn't Work?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to install slackware 32 bit 13.1.After loading kernel it asks for keyboard configuration, but keyboard (usb wireless) doesn't work.

Keyboard works on the old 13.0 installation, on bios and also in the boot options of 13.1 installation cd.

I've tried removing legacy usb support and changing usb2.0 speed from high to full. Nothing changed.

Anybody with this strange problem? (kernel of setup seems also to detect it correctly as a trust keyboard).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Use The Mouse Or Keyboard When The X-server Starts

May 14, 2010

I recently upgraded my Dell Vostro V13 from 9.04 to 10.04. All seemed to go well, but now the keyboard (and touchpad) aren't being recognized on bootup. I can get to single user mode OK --- keyboard is fine, but something is badly amiss as I can't use the mouse or keyboard when the X-server starts.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Fails - Got To "User Info" Screen Asks For My Name The Computer's Name Password

Dec 8, 2010

I'm totally new to this linux thing and I have a very strange problem. I downloaded the .iso and burned it to CD as per instructions. I had intended to install alongside existing WinXP Pro Sp3. Everything seemed to be going fine until it the installer got to the "User Info" Screen where it asks for my name, the computer's name, password, etc. At that point nothing I did would allow the "forward" button to work. I backed up a step or two and went forward again to no avail. I ended up hitting the hard reset button to get out of it. I never saw any error messages even though I scrolled through the install log at the bottom of the install window. Now my HDD is 60 Gb smaller (The part intended for Ubuntu) under Win XP and I have no idea what to do about it.

My system:

Asus P5NE-SLI Mobo
Intel Core2 Duo 8400 3.0 Ghz
2 Gb ram at 800Mhz
Nvidia 9800GT GPU 512Mb

Win XP seems to be working normally except for the loss of HDD space.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install 11.04 Starts Up To Blank Screen/initramfs Prompt?

Jun 17, 2011

I installed Umbuntu (MythBuntu 11.04 as backend system) and initially when starting it just went to a blank screen (no prompt, nothing). After going through safe mode I was able to get to a prompt and into the UI in low graphic mode.After updating the graphic drivers (nvidea) to the latest and changing some grub options (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=off splash") when I restarted it went to the busybox initramfs prompt. I typed "exit" and the UI started up normally.

The next time I restarted it went through to a blank screen. I typed "exit" again and enter and the UI started up normally again (even though I couldn't see what I was typing at the time).While I was going through the recovery mode I do remember some messages about disk not found/mounted, when I googled it I found stuff about entering rootdelay=90 in menu.lst which doesn't exist anymore. Is there a similar option I can enter somewhere in 11.04?Also I'm new to Ubuntu (in fact any Linux distro as an admin), where would I find any log files that may help with finding the problem.

General :: Asks For Password When None Was Given On Install?

Aug 22, 2010

Installed mint 8 persistent on 16 gb usb with linux live installer. Everything worked fine, even the os and software updates (the first time I had a usb install that had everything work, boot up, wifi, persistence to name a few) I booted It up twice before, the night before I updated os and the software and tried to find a program to rip cd's. this morning I booted it up and It asked for a user name and password. I always use the same user name & password. Now It won't let me in. Do you think It has anything to do with the os update.

Ubuntu :: Alternate 10.04 64bit Install Hangs At 75% And Asks For CD?

Jul 2, 2010

Had problems with hard drives yesterday, wouldn't recognise them after I'd installed Linux. Today I fixed that problem (another thread on here, in the hardware section) but now, every single time the install gets to 75%, it asks me to insert the CDROM and basically hangs.

Hitting enter doesn't try to fire up the CDROM, there's zero noise from it. It did this once yesterday but all other tries worked fine. Today it's failed the 7 different times I've tried, in exactly the same place, each time asking for the CD, even tried re-burning the CD, still failing at the same place. It's just after doing something to APT, then storing something (not very helpful I know). Can get a command prompt by CTRL-ALT_F2, but have no clue as to how to proceed when I get there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Setup: Warning: Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR - Install - Lvm - Luks - Raid - Karmic Server

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running Karmic Server with GRUB2 on a Dell XPS 420. Everything was running fine until I changed 2 BIOS settings in an attempt to make my Virtual Box guests run faster. I turned on SpeedStep and Virtualization, rebooted, and I was slapped in the face with a grub error 15. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine how these two settings could cause a problem for GRUB, but they have. To make matters worse, I've set my server up to use Luks encrypted LVMs on soft-RAID. From what I can gather, it seems my only hope is to reinstall GRUB. So, I've tried to follow the Live CD instructions outlined in the following article (adding the necessary steps to mount my RAID volumes and LVMs). [URL]

If I try mounting the root lvm as 'dev/vg-root' on /mnt and the boot partition as 'dev/md0' on /mnt/boot, when I try to run the command $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0, I get an errors: grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea. grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.

Somewhere in my troubleshooting, I also tried mounting the root lvm as 'dev/mapper/vg-root'. This results in the grub-install error: $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0 Invalid device 'dev/md0'

Obviously, neither case fixes the problem. I've been searching and troubleshooting for several hours this evening, and I must have my system operational by Monday morning. That means if I don't have a solution by pretty early tomorrow morning...I'm screwed. A full rebuild will by my only option.

OpenSUSE Install :: Start A Browser It Asks To Enter Root Password?

Sep 7, 2011

Whenever I start a browser, it asks me to enter my root password because of some pgp keyring issue. I set my password as standard in seahorse, but no change.

The Gnome3 interface sometimes lags very noticeably.

Packagekit constantly blocks my zypper use, and it won't shut down. Not even after I log out and log in again. I tried just removing everything related to packagekit, but that just breaks everything.

Searching for repositories is a pain and there are too many different ones and I never know which one is the latest and how these will be upgraded in the future. Zypper itself is awesome, everything else about package and repo management is not.

I can't uninstall applications properly. I remove them via zypper, and when I do a distro update they get added back in. (gnome games for example)

Whenever I install or search for anything in zypper, I get hundreds of these errors: GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: The connection is closed)..but it still finds something.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 9.10 On PS3 - Keyboard Doesn't Type?

Jan 28, 2010

The title says it all. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my PS3, but the keyboard isn't typing. I can't complete the install, because I can't type anything. I've followed all the steps properly, everything goes smoothly, the mouse works just fine, and the capslock and numlock lights light up on the keyboard, and toggle when I press the corresponding buttons. The keyboard even works at the kboot prompt. After I choose the partition to use, I have to enter my information to continue. Without being able to type, I can't progress. The keyboard obviously works, since I can type just fine at the kboot prompt.This one's got me scratching my head. I'm going to try a 9.04 cd tomorrow, see if that works, but I was really hoping to get 9.10 on there.

Fedora Installation :: Keyboard Fails During 11 Install

Sep 10, 2009

I am attempting to install Fedora 11 on a Dell Windows Server 2003 computer from CD (I just want to override the Server PC with F11). I used this media in my class last night after testing it, so I know the media itself is good. We did have lots of issues getting the keyboard and mouse to work during the install attempts last night, too, but eventually it worked. Unfortunately, at home is a different story!

I boot from install Disk 1 and get to the first screen with the option of testing the media or skipping it and I only get one keystroke then nothing. F11 just hangs/stops/freezes/locks up. Reboots don't help and I attempted to install from the F11 DVD I made, too, but the machine completely wouldn't see that disk at all! The keyboard is connected directly to the computer via PS2. I don't have a USB keyboard laying around nor an adapter to try.

I would love to hook up my children with F11! I did manage to figure out what files to download, burn to disk and how to install F11 at school yesterday).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 10.04 - Freezes At Keyboard Layout Selection

May 19, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.24 at a computer running Windows 7. Here are 2 scenearios, with the same result:

If I boot from the Ubuntu CD and try to install it, the wizard is freezed at the keyboard layout selection. I'm able to select my keyboard, but after I press Forward, the button is greyed out and nothing happens.
If I press cancel, I load the Live CD and retry the installation from there, selecting the shortcut "Install Ubuntu 10,04 LTS" from the desktop. Everything goes fine until the keyboard layout selection. Just in case, my keyboard is a USB Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and it works perfectly fine in Windows 7 and in the Live CD.

Debian Installation :: Logitech K350 Keyboard - Not Functional During Install

May 8, 2012

I just did a clean install to wheezy on my desktop (figured it was safe enough) and I found out my preferred keyboard, the Logitech 'Wave' K350, does not work on the wheezy installer. I tested to see if the mouse would work (M510) and it didn't work either. It works (or at least it did a few months ago) fine on the Squeeze installer. why my K350 didn't work on the install. It's just your typical wireless keyboard & mouse combo.The K350 works fine after the install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install 10.10 On Second HDD Partition

Nov 11, 2010

I have a 2 SATA HDD on my machine. The first one (320GB) contains the NTFS partition for my Windows 7. Now I have this second HDD (320GB), I want to install Ubuntu with it so I decided to create two partition with it, 50GB for Ubuntu and the rest for NTFS, so now I have two partition on it. I created an Ubuntu 10.10 bootable on my USB stick, booted it from there. Now on the installation, I set to manually assign partition, the installer detects my 2 HDD, the data was as follows

/dev/sta ATA ST3 - my first HDD contains Windows 7
/dev/sta1 320GB
/dev/stc ATA ST3 - my second HDD contains two partitions
/dev/stc1 50GB
/dev/stc2 230GB

Now I want to install Ubuntu on stc1 which is a 50GB partition, I changed the 50GB partition to ext4 journaling file system then checked the format drive. When I click forward, there was an alert asking me that I don't set any swap space. What is that? How can I set it? Is that really necessary? And also I am wondering on the another option below the boot loader installation which should I choose on there? its default choice was the /dev/sta1 which is my Windows 7 loader.
