Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Update - Could Not Resolve 'TOR'

Apr 21, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 along with Windows 7. I tried installing the TOR proxy thing long back, and today when I tried downloading a package it gave me that. Now even if I try updating my system, it says:-


W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/Release.gpg Could not resolve 'TOR'
W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/main/i18n/Translation-en_IN.bz2 Could not resolve 'TOR'

Fedora Installation :: F11 Kernel 217 Won't Boot After Update / Resolve This?

Aug 23, 2009

I have recently updated my Fedora 11 installation which replaced my older 167 kernel with the newer 217 kernel. However, the 217 kernel will not boot completely. It will show the splash loading screen, and then will switch to a rapidly blinking cursor. This cursor blinks for about 5 seconds and then disappears. I can access terminals using ALT+F2, etc. I can log in to these terminals, but init commands do not complete (something about a binary handler). I'm not sure if something is conflicting with an update to X or what is wrong. The most recent kernel that I managed to get to work was Kernel 167, however I cannot find this kernel for download.

Sys info:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
nVidia GeForce 8600GT with proprietary drivers
320GB Hard Disk with windows and linux partitions
Fedora 11 32-bit i586

Ubuntu :: Boot Freezes After Update To New Kernel / Resolve This?

Jul 1, 2010

I've just updated (through Update Manager) to the latest Linux kernel, (2.6.32-23, I believe) and now Ubuntu will not boot to the desktop.

It gets as far as finishing fsck on all of the drives, and successfully completes checks if necessary, but after that it just comes to a halt and won't proceed any further.

The last messages on screen when it freezes are (ignoring the fsck success reports):

init: ureadahead-other main process (954) terminated with status 4
init: ureadahead-other main process (959) terminated with status 4
init: ureadahead-other main process (970) terminated with status 4

These messages were appearing before, though.

The only way I seem to be able to boot now is by selecting the previous kernel (2.6.32-22) in GRUB.

Is anyone else seeing this, and does anyone know how to fix this Ubuntu update problem?

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Can't Connect To Internet / Resolve This?

May 6, 2011

All of a sudden Update Manager cannot connect to Internet. I just recently fixed a problem I had with playdeb not installing the games due to a internet connection problem (fixed by downloading the script instead of terminal method), this is the only big change I done recently other than downloading documents and pictures.

Here is the detail as to where or why it cannot connect code...

Slackware :: X Crashes After Update To -current / Resolve This?

Dec 17, 2010

I recently upgraded to -current from 13.0 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. It seems to have strange problems since then. The X crashes after sometime if I am running a video in firefox (flash based, say .....) in the full-screen mode. When I am not in the full-screen, it seems to run just fine. A similar thread was posted a few days back (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rashes-846796/) and I thought I had overcome the problem using one of the suggestions provided, but apparently, I just had not run full-screen videos ever since (and I thought it was solved!). code...

I should mention that, the crash happened when I was running a video chat on gmail in full-screen mode too. I have the Xorg.0.log for that too, if it is going to be helpful. Also, one thing I noticed was that even Ctrl+Alt+b_space does not work when this crash happens!! (so, I have to go ahead and reboot the system using the power button everytime) This I find very strange, since if at all, I should have been able to kill the process and restart X.

This seems to be an extraordinarily long thread, but I have put in whatever I thought could be useful info I should give. I will appreciate any help in resolving this issue.

Installation :: Ubuntu Cannot Boot After Installation / Resolve This?

Feb 26, 2011

I have downgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. I've had some bumps along the way and finally was able to install 10.04 successfully. Right now, my computer will not boot from the HDD and will only boot from the USB drive that the LiveCD is on. When I reorganize to set HDD as primary boot, i get:

id-laptop login:
id-laptop password:

and I can put that in but then it just gives me a command line that says"id@id-laptop:~$

How do I get it to boot from the HDD instead of from the USB without running into this problem?

If I resequence the boot to HDD as number two, it will juts go into the LiveCD mode. Am I supposed to reinstall 10.04 again? I know 10.04 was successfully installed because it said it was and it needed to restart so i hit the restart button. It also had my old desktop picture there and all my files AND i checked the system info before restarting (it confirmed that lucid lynx was running).

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Won't Boot / Resolve This?

I am a total noob, and have installed Xubuntu as a sort of dual-boot backup on my winXP machine.

Installation :: Ubuntu 10.04 Won't Boot / Resolve This?

Aug 10, 2010

I've never used Ubuntu before and I was having some trouble booting. I've tried both installing with Wubi and also the full installation, but using either method I get the same result:

After selecting Ubuntu on the boot menu it says its finishing installing and then my laptop precedes to practically "shut off." The screen goes blank and the light on my optical mouse goes off. Only the fan runs and it begins to go very quickly. At one point I even left it on for several hours like this to make sure I wasn't being too impatient, but nothing happened.

Currently I have a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033 with an i7 processor and 4GB of ram. I also only have one hard drive which may have complicated my problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Load Java 6 / Resolve This?

Nov 5, 2010

Just created a partition to run Ubuntu 10.04. Need to execute an Xcel spreadsheet that requires Linux and a JRE from Java. ATT is my DSL provider, but they do not support Linux, so I have no internet connectivity. I downloaded JAVA 6.0 from another machine and attempted to load it - with no success. Two days of no success! I run OS X and Windows 7, but Linux is new to me. I'm trying, but I'm missing something.

Here's the file on my desktop...


It opened from the native download...

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Errors / Resolve This?

Aug 21, 2011

I've had a lot of success over the past year with Ubuntu 10.4; however, recently I've been experiencing nothing but problems. It all started with an upgrade a month ago that caused me to experience a boot error. Now every time I re-install the system, I will have a random boot error. I have been trying to install the system on a friend's computer and getting the same thing. I've tried a different download and burned different discs, but I am still experiencing problems with the system having a boot error. Sometimes it is immediate after installation and other times it might boot fine for a day or two and then suddenly it will no longer boot. Is there some kind of bug with 10.4 now? I never, never had this hard of a time with Ubuntu. I've installed it on several computers for myself and other people.

Installation :: Ubuntu Doesn't Boot After Install / Resolve This?

Jan 5, 2010

I'm trying to dual boot 9.10 with Vista on an HP Pavilion Slimline (AMD64). I've tried both booting from a disk and using Wubi, and neither has worked. Booting from the disk takes me through the screen where I can choose to try Ubuntu without installing, but after selecting that, the desktop didn't load, the screen just went to black.

I decided to try Wubi, and it went well enough. Everything in windows worked, and upon rebooting, it was able to finish checking the installation. After one more reboot, I selected Ubuntu from the Windows boot manager, and then the grub command prompt appears. I can't seem do anything after that except reboot.

I have no idea what's going on with this computer.

Ubuntu :: Installation Runs Silently And Then Gets Stuck / Resolve This?

Jan 11, 2010

I tried installing Ubuntu 9.10 using both Ubuntu Desktop CD and the Netbook Remix on a EEEPC 1005HA with an external CD drive.

In both cases I don't get any graphical interface during the installation. The CD is apparently installing everything silently, without letting me change anything on the way, and then it gets stuck.

The only screen I get is the first one, with the options to "try Ubuntu" or "install Ubuntu".

What's going on?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Hangs After Latest Updates / Resolve This?

Jan 29, 2010

A first for me with Ubuntu. The system has hung. Well almost hung.

After installing the latest automatic updates - I'm sorry, I don't know how to identify which ones they were, but it was on 29 January 2010 - when selecting almost any application the system almost hangs. By almost hangs, I mean, the cursor will move very slightly once every 10 seconds or so, but even if it can be manipulated to a certain point, no action can be taken.

The only way out of this situation that I have been able to find is a hard reboot. (I was used to this type of thing with Windows XP, but had never seen it before with Ubuntu).

Reverting to Ubuntu Linux 2.6.31-17-genereic-PAE at the GRUB boot up option screen solves the problem.

Any suggestions on what might be happening, how to fix it, or if it is even worth bothering with? It is working just fine (so far) on the older generic-PAE.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 - How To Set Nomodeset To Resolve The Black Screen

May 1, 2010

Following the instructions in this post I'm able to boot and work using the live-cd option (Try without installing). The trick is, of course, adding 'nomodeset' to the boot sequence.

Now, my problem is to add 'nomodeset' to the "normal" boot sequence - the one on my hard disk. I'm running Ubuntu on an LG E300 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1250.

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Fail During Upgrade / Resolve This?

May 3, 2010

The other evening I was in the lengthy process of upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to version 10.04. It had downloaded all the packages and was in the process of upgrading when a thunderstorm blew in. The power failed momentarily. The system crashed and the installation did not complete.

The system is dual boot to Windows XP. From GRUB when I try to boot Ubuntu the display goes dark, after a few seconds of the white Ubuntu logo. If I hit ENTER I get a flashing Cursor. I can boot to System Restore and get the Recovery Menu. I don't know if there is something I can do from there to repair/finish my upgrade, or even revert to version 9, when I could restart the upgrade.

Can I burn a Live CD for version 10.04 and finish the upgrade? This would salvage the settings, printer drivers, and other programs that I have installed. If I have to make a brand new installation I have to rebuild all of the things I spent many hours getting setup.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cusor Disappears After Upgrade To 10.4 / Resolve This?

May 16, 2010

I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 after kernel upgrade.
The pointer is visible at the login screen, but after I login, it disappears. Never had any problems with earlier distributions.

I was still able to figure out where it was because of the hover effects (you know, the brightness change of a button or link when you hover your mouse over it) and quicky changed the settings in System>Preferences>Mouse to show where the mouse is when I pressed ctl key.

I can get the cursor to be visible by sudo lshw -c display, but that is only temporary. If I reboot I have to do that again.

This is the information I get when I do lshw -c display code...

I'm running this on an old Dell Optiplex GX260 with onboard video.

Anybody have any ideas on how to make the pointer show up on a more permanent basis?

Also, it seems screensavers are giving me problems as well when they never used to. They just blank my screen and I have to reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Seems To Freeze While Booting / Resolve This?

Sep 19, 2010

So when i initially boot (both using wubi and a usb stick.) it will start to go and then do the alternative boot option with a 5 second count down. Then if I'm lucky it will get passed that then either a black screen with just a flashing _ on it and it will freeze there. Or it will go to the ubuntu opening with the little dots for initial boot and it freezes there. (the dots don't move more then two and then it really freezes.) My specs are
i5 750
Nvidia Geforce GTS 250
1.5 TB harddrive
ASUS P7P55-M LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Windows XP home edition 2006 with SP3.
