Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Hp MIE 8.04 Hardy To 10.04?

May 2, 2010

I am trying to upgrade my Hp MIE 8.04 Hardy to 10.04, how to do this.

It is the original install of HP MIE but when I use something like:

Quote:

update-manager --devel-release

I install updates, but when i re-check it does not display upgrade available.

The update manager looks different due to the MIE interface. Is there another, better way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Crc Failed When Extracting Rar?

Jan 25, 2010

I never had any problems extracting any rar files until about a month or so ago. Now I can't seem to extract ANY video file that has been rared. It is becoming a pain to have to boot into windows just to perform a 15 second task. I dont have any problems with any other files except video files. I get a 'CRC Failed' message. None of my searches have yielded any results. Does anybody know what is causing this problem and how to correct it? Or yet, why it just started happing? I'm using karmic, and was using p7zip-rar until the problem began. The I added unrar and unrar-free but that didn't make any difference.

Ubuntu :: Hardy Boot Failed After Update Drop To Initramfs

Apr 5, 2011

just installed hardy after I removed Maverick since it doesn't support my ati graphics. I installed it inside my windows xp pro and run smoothly after installation, added couple of widgets and so on... after I restarted it the next time, a balloon showed on top saying 113 or so updates are available, so I updated it.

After update I reboot my lappy and it won't get to my ubuntu anymore but works fine with my xp. I tried several searches on the net to find the solution but can't really figure it out. I just tried running Boot info script as it might help experts figure out what's wrong with my box and here's what it shows:

Ubuntu :: Why A Hardy/Hardy Dual-boot Shouldn't Work

Jan 5, 2010

I've had issues with the later versions of Ubuntu, so in an effort to road-test Firefox 3.5 on Hardy I'd like to change my Karmic/Hardy dual boot to a Hardy/Hardy dual boot, and follow the instructions in [URL] to put the Mozilla build of 3.5 on the new installation.

I can't see any reason why a Hardy/Hardy dual-boot shouldn't work, but does anyone know of any issues with this I might not be aware of?

Ubuntu Installation :: Log On Failed After Upgrade/install "authentication Failed"

May 20, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu since 6.04, not a linux guru by any means but can usually get myself out of trouble.

So, the issue... I installed 8.04 on my mother's laptop some time back as she was having trouble keeping Win 2000 running (she has a low spec no-name generic laptop btw). I live in Autsralia and she in England, i thought i could better support her if she was running Ubuntu... All has been well with 8.04 but with the new LTS release (10.04) i thought i'd talk her through the upgrade... Did the online upgrade via Update Manager, all seemed to go OK but when she went to log on after restart she got an error saying 'authentication failed' even though we are 100% sure we have the user name and password correct... Tried to do a ctrl+alt+F1 to by pass the GUI log on but couldn't get the terminal session to open up, just got a black screen - no command prompt.

So... thought OK re-install... downloaded the ISO, burned and sent her a CD in the post... talked her through the re-install, all seemed to go well (again) - BUT, after restart, couldn't log in "authentication failed" again...

So, remember i'm trying to talk a novice through all this... any thoughts!?!

If i can get her to log in i can then support her via some kind of remote sesion or other screen share... and it wont cost me a small fortune in international calls!!! But if i can't get a log in, i'm dead in the water!?

Ubuntu :: Port 80 Closed After Upgrade From Hardy Heron To Lucid?

May 24, 2010

I had an install of 8.04 running Tomcat 6 on port 80. I did a marathon upgrade session to 8.10, then 9.04, then 9.10, and finally to 10.04. My website no longer loads (from Internet, LAN, or local), and a port scan shows port 80 is not open. I have removed and reinstalled Tomcat 6, to no avail.

Could it be that the 10.04 upgrade saw an existing Desktop install and locked this port down? The /etc/Tomcat6/server.xml shows it is using port 80, so that much appears to be correctly configured. Before this would give me the ROOT webapp. Anything else I can check? Does this sound like a Tomcat problem or something Ubuntu is doing?

As a side note, I have installed the Tomcat 6 Docs and Manager apps as well. These also worked before the upgrades, and do not now.

Ubuntu :: Lost Xp In Duel Boot After Hardy Upgrade / Get That Back?

Jun 6, 2010

I've just had a phone call from an 8.04/win xp duel boot user who has lost the boot entry to xp after a 8.04 update. I guessed at a system upgrade but she checked and is still on Hardy. They write and only have the xp for printing as there is no Linux support for the cannon printer. Using the printer is important. I've said I'll pop round and try to sort it out. Any ideas how I can do this. Update grub in recovery mode maybe or if I need the command line what should I try? I'd like to know before calling as though I'm not quite a novice this isn't a problem I've had to cope with since grub 2 beta ( didn't solve it then either an am still using 9.04 ). Hacking legacy will be new to me. As this is a writers machine with all her work on it I'd regard it as a critical pc, don't want to mess things up for her.

Networking :: New Ethernet Connection On Old (gutsy) Ubuntu?

Jul 23, 2010

i've just got a new broadband/wireless connection from Virgin Media and am trying to get this very old laptop online. in the past, cable connections have been easy, and wireless has given issues, but this time its the opposite. so, i have a new cable connection that is all plugged in. called customer support, they have no support for linux as usual, but they 'manually activated' the modem and thats all they can do. i am not trying to setup the wireless network yet, i'll do that with a pc later, for now i just want to plug in and go. on Network Settings, i have set the wired connection to dhcp. thats what i've done before ... not sure if i need to get static addresses from the ISP? i can go online now using the erratic but generous neighborhood free wireless.

ifconfig -a gives:

Code:

ath0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:14:A4:1E:3E:65

General :: Slow And Poorly Working Karmic Koala After Upgrade From Hardy

Jan 21, 2010

I reinstalled Ubuntu on my HP pc-40 computer. I used to run Hardy Heron and am now running Karmic Koala. The cd drive which had had issues for a while, broke after finishing the install, when I tried to get the cd out.I dont know if this has anything to do with it, or if my computer is too old for Karmic Koala, or if possibly the harddrive didn't appreciate being overwritten a second time - but the graphics are not working well (small squares of previous windows linger in my present browser window*)everythin is much slower, and many applications come up without a border, or their windows cant be moved with the mouse.

To top it off, while I tried to fix a bug with the terminal (no border) and uninstalled it, I couldnt install it back. So no terminal, which really makes even a newbie like me sad.If I cant solve it in a few days I will probably try to install a smaller distro via USB - I think Slax can be installed straight to USB without a live cd?

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed Upgrade To 10.01?

Aug 22, 2010

I had installed Ubuntu 8.04 and partitioned my drive to share 500gB with Windows XP. All was good. When I saw that Ubuntu 10.01 was available I downloaded it to update the 8.04. Ididn't want to have to redo all my configurations so told installer not to update config files. No entry in GRUB no boot. Tried to re-install 8.04 to replace 10.01 and get back to intial state. Current state Ubuntu won;t boot, XP still OK but don't know how to clean up my mess. I've attached a copy of a boot info script I ran.

Code:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
============================= Boot Info Summary: ==============================
=> Grub 0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #6 for /boot/grub/stage2 and /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 11.04 Failed?

May 5, 2011

I ran the software manager upgrade/update install of 11.04. When I reboot almost immediately a quick error flashes on screen that says something like "missing prefix" then it goes to an unfamiliar menu with kernel choices that are very old and look nothing like my desktop. I think it may be some old install or something I dont know. I have an eee pc. I originally installed with WUBI but have done other kernel upgrades with no issues.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dist-upgrade 8.04 LTS--64 To 10.04 LTS--64 Failed?

May 6, 2010

--Began with an up-to-date Ubuntu 8.04.3--64 LTS install; tar-copied everything from sda2 to sda3 and booted SDA3 so I wouldn't fry my main install:

[[ ' fdisk -l /dev/sda /dev/sdb '

Will attach any logs requested; but I'm about to scrap the failed install and start over, 'cuz I want to test 10.04 LTS and the new Vmware Workstation 7.1--64 beta. The only thing I can think of is that I did not boot into the new kernel ( apt-get upgrade ) before doing the dist-upgrade. I've done a few of these dist-upgrades in the past this way; 6.06-LTS to 8.04, 8.04 to 9.x, etc

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed Upgrade From Kubuntu 8.04 To 9.10?

May 31, 2010

I have an Proliant DL380 that I use as a home server/router that I attempted to upgrade to Lucid. The gui upgrader first attempted to upgrade to 9.10 (as expected.)

I believe grub was incorrectly installed/updated. Not quite sure if grub2 was installed. The machine boots to a maintenance prompt. The partitions seem to be mounted read-only because of errors. The grub menu only shows an 8.04 kernel choice, even though all 9.10 packages were downloaded and, I believe, installed. The gui upgrader did fail with an error right before the "cleaning-up" stage. After "messing around" with it, the upgrader said I needed to reboot. So, I did and my problems started.

I tried booting the 9.10 Kubuntu cdrom and also a Knoppix 6 CD, but neither one would boot properly (gave me a BusyBox prompt.) So, I guess they don't like the Smart Array 6.

what I could try to fix and upgrade to 10.04? I really don't want to lose my configuration files (dhcp, firestarter rules, apache, squirrelmail, NFS, etc.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Restart After Upgrade To 11.04 Failed

Mar 26, 2011

i am an ubuntu nooby, out of curiosity i installed ubuntu 11.04 alpha3 last night. Yes, i will definitely never install an alpha version unless i wish to test it! Frankly said, i first installed 386 version on a notebook which runs just fine. So I thought why not install the 64 bit version on my pc.

Unfortunately, the system did not finish the first reboot in order to complete the installation. First it always stopped at "checking battery state". There, I read that this bug is already fixed: [URL]... I came across this thread: [URL]... So I pressed Alt +F2 in order to log in and performed sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade. Everytime there was a new update I hoped, that this will fix the issue. But when I shutdown the system with sudo shutdown now -h and restart again there is no progress.The only thing that changed is that the system no stops at "Stopping userspace bootsplash", whatever that means?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.10 To 11.04 Failed - Can't Get To The Desktop

Apr 28, 2011

I used Kubuntus kpackagekit to upgrade to natty. The process started well, it downloaded everything and started to install 11.04. But then all of a sudden during Installing stage I got this error message:

"Distribution upgrade process exited with code 1"

and

"Your system might be unusable".

And it sure is unusable because after reboot I can only see Kubuntu 10.10 loading screen and

"The disk drive for / is not ready yet or not present".

There also are options for either skip mounting or manually mount hard disks. I don't have a clue how to manually mount... I get same message if I try to boot to safe mode. Does this mean I have to go to clean install? I really don't want to do that because last time it took a couple of months to get ubuntu to co-operate well enough with my laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade Failed & Won't Boot?

Apr 29, 2011

Got a Netbook. No CD drive so mounted image to USB stick and booted into installer from there. Chose the option to upgrade from 10.04 LTS to 11.04 and the installer hung on removing conflicting operating system files. In the end, I was forced to restart as nothing else could be done. Now, it just boots to this:

Quote: error: no argument specified.
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init.
No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.

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

I booted to the Live CD and reinstalled Grub which now brings up a list of all the kernels and Memtest but, aside from Memtest, they still all boot to this. I don't have the passphrase for the Home folder (don't even remember encrupting it!) so I tried the ecryptfs method from the live CD to get the passphrase and backup the Home folder and do a new install but there is no trace of .ecryptfs or .Private folder and pretty much everything in the Home folder is locked. Tried an fsck on the hard drive, but nothing. I do remember thinking the hard drive was referred to as hda1, but the live CD shows it as sda1. Don't know if this affects anything. I have a feeling the installer regarded the USB stick as first hard drive and got confused.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed To Fetch - Upgrade From 10.10 To 11.04

May 7, 2011

Problem with my upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04. I got the update manager to show the upgrade to 11.04 button - proceeded. It downloaded 1300 files or there abouts then did a failed to fetch http://76.73.4.58/ubuntu/pool/main/g/. I took a screen shot which left the rest out - also did a select all - copy - no paste occurred. - re-obtained. So I'm thinking that the missing files are missing on this server and my current thought is that I will go to another server and try downloading from that one. BTW did the same upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 to be able to upgrade to 11.04 that one worked well I didn't know there was a 10.10 upgrade since I got here; there are a few problems that went away.. This upgrade only showed after changing my status to normal from long term.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed Upgrade 9.10 -> 10.04: System Unbootable

May 4, 2010

I've just reported a launchpad bug report about my desktop system being unbootable after upgrade to lucid lynx. [URL]... I opened this thread to ask if someone else experienced a similar problem and for collecting information and workarounds (none yet) about this quite serius problem. The system has an nvidia graphic card and proprietary drivers were installed before the upgrade. However I'm not sure the problem is related to this. FYI, the system booted regularly from a usb stick with ubuntu lucid lynx. SO the problem is in the upgrade path.
