Ubuntu Installation :: Ram Support For Netbook Edition ?

Apr 1, 2011

I have an Asus 1018p with Ubuntu netbook version installed, and I wanted to upgrade the ram. With Windows 7 Starter, the maximum ram supported for this machine is 2 gb, and I was wondering whether the amount of ram supported by Ubuntu would be the same, or if it would be different. Also, if it's different, how would I go about finding out how much ram i could put in?

Ubuntu Installation :: Netbook Remix On Old Laptop With No Ext Media Boot Support?

Apr 22, 2010

do you have any suggestions how I can install Ubuntu netbook edition on an old Laptop (Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook 2131) currently running Windows 2000 with all servicepacks (if I recall correctly it is SP5) without boot-support for USB-Stick/Media, CD-ROM, PXE/netboot; booting is only supported from builtin harddisk and from floppy-disk drive, which is definitely broken. (with working floppy disk drive all would be fine). I also installed WUBI, but the harddisk is only 4 GB, so I had to use the USB-Stick as the Ubuntu install partition and this is not supported by the Laptop as it cannot boot from it.

Has anybody an idea, is it viable to online-resize an NTFS-partition to create a small linux-partition for bootstrapping the install?? I do not want to, it's still useful, so when crashing the NTFS-filesystem is likely I prefer not to take this route and leave the laptop with Win2k installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS Netbook Heating Up When Using Netbook 10.04

Apr 30, 2010

I installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 and immediately noticed the keyboard of my eeepc 1000HE was abnormally warm. Since I dual boot XP I booted to XP and found the fan running faster to compensate for the previous heat. This did not happen on Ubuntu-the fan just was barely running. I had to place the side of the netbook in order to feel the fan running. I issued "sensors" in terminal and it showed 67 degrees C for the cpu temp. Is the latest Ubuntu such a resource hug that it heats up the CPU?

Debian :: Partimage Does Not Support Ext4 - Alternative?

Aug 27, 2010

I thought I'll be smart, and installed squeeze on ext4 partitions ( boot-ext2, root-ext4, home-ext4 and swap). With my Lenny (ext3), I use partimage to backup the / partition, and rsync to backup my /home files. Now, I found out that partimage does not work with ext4. Are there other GNU packages I can use to backup my / partition?

Ubuntu :: Alternative/Minimal On EeePC 1101HA - No Atl1c Network Support

Aug 16, 2010

The alternative and minimal installation images do not contain drivers for my EeePC 1101HA's network devices. The module required for the ethernet is atl1c (Atheron AR8132), but the discs contain only atl1 and atl1e. What can I do to install it?

I dug the .ko file out of the live CD (which works fine) and tried to modprobe it in the alternative installer's environment (minimal won't let me mount any storage devices), but modprobe wouldn't accept it as a module. So I gather there's a missing step somewhere.

Also, the alternative image is choking on an error, "Debootstrap error: Failed to determine the codename for the release." So I can't even install from a mounted ISO and figure out how to install the driver on the otherwise working system.

How do I make this work? I'd really like to build an Ubuntu system from the ground up instead of relying on the ready-made desktop live CD.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Won't Boot After Installation On Netbook?

Feb 5, 2011

I just installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix on my netbook. I use a toshiba NB205. I did a clean install and afterwards, it showed installation complete; however, on attempting to reboot, the system hangs after I select ubuntu from the bootloader menu. On searching the forum, I saw a similar post where the poster was advised to run the bootscript. I did the same, but the output is different and I'm not sure what exactly it means. The output from the results.txt file is below. Please help, I need to get my installation working.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Netbook Installation Does Not Start?

Mar 16, 2011

I wanted to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10 on my Netbook, which is a HP Mini 210. I created an USB-Stick to boot from (with UltraISO, because the USB-creator which is delivered in the Ubuntu image does not work well somehow). I created bootable USB-Sticks with UltraISO before so I don't think I did anything wrong there.

BUT: The installation does not even start. When I turn the power on I get this message:

"Start booting from USB device. SYSLINUX 2.84 2009-12-18 EBIOS Copyright (c) 1994-2009 H. Peter Anvin et al" Then a blinking cursor... but nothing more. It doesn't matter how long I wait, nothing happens. Even though the cursor is blinking, I cannot write anything. All I can do is to turn the power off.

So I don't even get the installation menu... what is the problem? Any idea?

PS: I'm a beginner to Linux / Ubuntu

Ubuntu Security :: Where To Get Alternative Installation CD?

Aug 17, 2010

I keep hearing about this "alternative installation CD" so that I can encrypt my hard drive. But I can never seem to find it. I would like to use it and do a new install with an encrypted HD. Also, know I can google it, but I was hoping someone could point me to a how to on encrypting grub.

I would like to ask your thoughts of the security of a computer that has the bios password protected, grub password protected and the HD encrypted. I know it all seems excessive unless you are afraid of people who have physical access to your computer, which I am. I also know physical access = root access and that given physical access there is no way to secure the computer, however that does not mean I should not make it harder and more time consuming for the evil maid.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 10.04 To A Laptop - Alternative Method?

May 16, 2010

Currently I've got Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04 (I believe) on my laptop, with two separate partitions.I want to format the laptop and only have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on there, but since the CD drive is broken, I've just been trying to do it from USB. There must be something wrong with my laptop/booting from USB, because I've tried two different programs used to create Live USB installations (UNetbootin and Universal-USB-Installer). Both of them load the menu, let me select to install or run the Live CD, but neither of them get past the purple-ish Ubuntu loading screen. The screen just goes black (But stays lit), and nothing else happens.

So I'm wondering if there is different, easy-ish method for installing Ubuntu 10.04 to this laptop. It's got a working network adapter,

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Flash Drive - Alternative USB Ports?

Aug 9, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 - I want it to sit on another partition along with my Windows XP installation. I don't have a blank CD handy, so I opted for the USB installation option.

I followed the very clear instructions for doing this from the Ubuntu download page [URl].. my PC skips straight over the USB drive and continues to boot into Windows XP. I tried an alternative bootable USB creator (unetbootin-windows-471.exe), but it has the same result.

I have verified that the flash drive is at the top of the boot list - I can also see the name of my flash drive flash past seconds before it boots into Windows, so the PC knows its there. I have also booted into a Live version of Linux using the same PC and pen drive before, so I know booting from it is possible - I suspect the ISO is bad? Or perhaps I'm missing something completely. I tried alternative USB ports too.

I am currently installing the Ubuntu 10.04 Alternative, as I am having problem with video card. What I know is that I need to edit the Grub file in /etc/default/grub and add i915.modeset=1 for my video card. What I don't know is how to do that in the command line, what application should I use and how to save it? Also, if everything works well, I want to boot to gnome automatically. What I am looking for is a step by step instructions (as I can get lost).

Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded One Of The Alternative CDs And Installing It Both Ways?

Jan 11, 2011

I'm looking to run a dual boot on this laptop. I have Win7 currently installed, and I have my hard drive partitioned and ready to go for an Ubuntu install. I've downloaded the i386 CD from the website, burned it successfully. I rebooted with the disc in, and when I select install to hard drive, it shows a blinking cursor below the install screen and hangs there. I installed the ISO to a bootable USB drive and tried to install it that way, same thing. I even tried downloaded one of the alternative CDs and installing it both ways. Same problem. Ive installed Ubuntu on this laptop before and it's ran successfully. I believe it was 9.04.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Alternative For NVIDIA Graphic Card Installation Correct?

Jan 7, 2011

I am new to Suse Linux. So please excuse me for this "funny" query. have read the threads: Configuring graphics cards in openSUSE 11.3

From here I went to this page: SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE Its mentioned on this page that: Upon installing openSUSE, the X system's automatic configuration may have failed to properly configure the graphics correctly. Typically this results in either a black screen upon reboot, or the wrong resolution being displayed on the monitor.

I have none of these problems. But after searching for inability of desktop effects to become activated, I found that nVIDIA graphic card drivers are must for these effects. After clicking "My computer" icon on desktop, I found Display Info as following:

Vendor: nVidia Corporation
Model: G98 [GeForce 8400 GS]
2D driver: nouveau
3D driver: nouveau Gallium (7.8.2)

Can anyone tell me 'Is nouveau an alternative for nVIDIA'? Is this the reason for no wrong resolution or black screen upon boot. That means my computer graphics are working correctly. Then why does Desktop Effects are not getting enabled.

After searching for Kaffeine media player extra codecs to play media files, I incidentally found the following options: I opened Yast Control Center @ linux-o26a Software> Add on Products > installed Add-On Products > Community Repositories > clicking Next, this opened a window with "List of Online repositories" where there is an option of "NVIDIA Repository". If I install it, will it enable the "Desktop effects"
