Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install Manually From Live Cd

Feb 18, 2010

I am running a Dell Dimension 3000 and I intend to install Ubuntu on it. On it, there is a partition, Dell Utility Partition, which I am hesitant to overwrite. The main partition which I want to install Ubuntu on I formatted in ext4. I try to install Ubuntu from the live cd, but it won't allow me to strictly use the ext4 partition. It insists to either use the entire drive or to have me manually choose the partition. How would I go about doing that? I relatively new to Linux in general

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Libraries Manually

Mar 7, 2011

I want to set up ubuntu 10.10 on a computer WITHOUT Internet access.I also need to install a package on it but it has several dependant libraries (eg libX11-dev)If i just have the names of those libraries & the package, where can i find them, so that they can be downloaded onto a pendrive & then installed onto the comp? (What would a library file look like after download?)

Also after i have copied the files onto the other comp (assuming that it was possible), how do i install the library? Would synaptics recognise that i have installed this library if done manually by this method?

Fedora Installation :: Possible To Install Manually?

Jun 19, 2009

When I try to install fedora 11 from the Live CD I get the hwaddress error and cannot continue. As far as I know there is no fix for that other than installing from the full DVD, but I don't have the facility to do that.What I would like to know is if it is possible to install fedora manually for eg. create the partitions with something like fdisk and copy all the files over from the live disc to the hdd and then install grub to start fedora and use it as if it had been installed normally.

Sorry if this is a stupid question. In my head I have this idea that anaconda is some helper program to install fedora and that it should be possible to do it yourself with the right commands.

Ubuntu Installation :: Manually Upgrade Minimal-Install To Standard Desktop

Apr 29, 2010

Due to some CD burning/reading problems with the laptop I'm installing to, the only install disk that I have been able to get to work is a MinimalCD disk.Unfortunately this only works if I don't ask it to install any extras at all, so I can install Ubuntu, but it is bare bones, and boots to a shell, no GUI or anything like that.What packages do I need to apt-get to bring this minimal install up to the standard Ubuntu install? Does anyone have a list of packages, or a site that will tell me which packages to install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Of Server / There Are 320 Packages Manually Installed

Jun 3, 2011

I want to some how get a list of the packages I installed. I was hoping that I could just list all of the packages that were not installed automatically as a dependency. It turns out that there are 320 packages that match that description (I think). Is there a way to do what I want to do? Shouldn't all of these dependencies have been installed as a handful of meta-packages instead?

OpenSUSE Install :: Update System - Without Having To Download / Install Every Dependency Manually?

Dec 13, 2009

how to update my system online (for example my firefox 3.0 to 3.5) but i can't figure out how this possibly works. I tried the "online update" using Yast2 but apparently (according to Yast) there is nothing at all to be patched on my system. I tried to click on the Firefox-3.5.5 rpm in the repository web-interface and open it using "install software" but the process aborts because of unresolved dependencies. Is there an easy way to update software without having to download/install every dependency manually?

Ubuntu Installation :: Manually Configuring Printer / Driver Installation?

May 20, 2011

If I were to have a situation where I had installed the driver for a printer but when I went into printing on the control panel to "add" the printer the driver didn't show up - could I or should I consider manually editing some configuration file to get the printer recognized/ installed on the machine? If that were a good solution, how would I do it? What file would I look for? What would I edit in it? I know that first sentence is probably hard to read but I don't know how else to say it.

Ubuntu :: Install By Manually Specifying The Partitions?

Dec 19, 2010

how to partition. I was getting sick of having to backup my data every time I had to reinstall Ubuntu, so someone recommend that I partition my hard drive so that I could store all my personal files ( documents, music, and vidoes ) onto the seperate partition. However I don't know how to do this. Furthermore when a new version of Ubuntu is release I always pick the install on the entire hard drive so the partition i installed would end up being deleted. How do you install Ubuntu by manually specifying the partitions.

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting From USB Manually?

Nov 23, 2010

I am not the most computer savy, so bear with me. I have opensuse installed on my usb hard drive and recently had a windows crash that caused me to lose my opensuse boot menu/grub. Before the crash I had to have the usb drive plugged in in order to boot to windows or opensuse or I would get an error at startup....... I would like to avoid this. Is there anyway to make it so that when I turn on my computer It boots directly to windows, and if I want to go to opensuse then I can plug in my usb drive and manually boot to usb from my boot menu? I would run these two together on my computer but I share this computer and having to have my usb drive plugged in all the time kind of made them mad. So I guess my question is two fold..... Is this possible? And if so can I go into my hard drive through windows and place something in there to allow me to boot to it since my grub is back to the origional windows boot or do I need to use a live cd to access opensuse and do it that way?.

General :: How To Manually Install Software

Jul 28, 2010

How do I manually install software that I download off the net? i.e. like when I download a tar.gz or .deb file that is not found in the repository- and want to install it. I tried the old Winders(Windows) way- unzipping and double-clicking (Only in private, of course)....but I guess as most of you know...that does not work in LINUX.

I read in the manual where it says something about adding things to the repos- but they apparently have to be .pps or .ppa files or some junk..So how does one install downloaded software manually in Ubuntu?

My drive is quite big and I would like to be able to have my encrypted LVM as well as an extra LUKS encrypted partition which I could mount whenever needed. Unfortunately the options in the alternate installer do not allow me to do this without using up the entire disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Manually Remove Old Kernels

Oct 20, 2010

I did a "dirty install" of Maverick over my existing Lucid system. That went very well and I am having no problems with Maverick. However, this morning, I decided to clean off the old Lucid kernels. In the past, after installing a new kernel on the same Ubuntu release, I have done this by running "aptitude search 2.6.32-24", for example, then running "sudo aptitude purge" for the kernel and header files it found.

Now that I have changed releases, aptitude no longer finds the Lucid kernels installed on my system, even though they still reside in the file system and show up on the grub2 menu. So, how do I manually find everything necessary to delete for the old Lucid kernels?
