Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Does Not Recognize Hdd

Jan 7, 2010

Last night I booted up and got the black screen, and it would not boot. Can't find your /etc/home/fstab file or something along those lines I did not write it down. I got out my thumb drive and reinstalled Ubuntu 9.10, when I got to the partition phase I did a manual install and instructed Ubuntu to load onto /dev/sda1 /. I had previously partitioned this 160Gb drive with 41 Gb for root and 113 for my /home files and left 6.2 for Swap. Now it sees my second partition as 119 /dev/sda2 extended and Unrecognized. Unfortunately all my files are on that partition and I can't figure out how to tell Ubuntu to configure that partition as my /home . I really do not want to re-install and wipe that partition. Can gparted fix this dilemma? I thought I was being so good by creating a boot partition so that I could upgrade in the future without affecting the rest of my files.

Hardware :: Karmic Doesn't Recognize Graphics Card

Dec 5, 2009

I have recently installed Karmic to a portable hard drive (WD elements 500gb) so that when it is plugged in the grub can boot and i can go into ubuntu 9.10 and when it is out windows 7/vista dual boot screen shows. When in ubuntu, there is no driver for my 'NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS' graphics card available so i am stuck with the no effects mode and the games are poor.

Previously i had this same setup (but with jaunty) and the graphics card worked well, i could have all the wobbly window effects etc, but now i can't have anything.How could i get a driver for this?BTW, it is running through USB 2.0, although it is very fast.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Kernel In A Karmic Persistent USB Installation

Jan 30, 2010

I've upgraded the generic kernel of my Xubuntu Karmic AMD64 persistent USB installation with the ubuntustudio realtime kernel ( The thing is that the generic kernel is still loading as default and I don't have the option on the boot menu to choose the new one. I don't know how to edit this Grub2 version (grub-pc 1.97 beta 4).I haven't found a GUI package for this either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Recognize The IDE HD But XP Can?

Jul 26, 2010

I had a motherboard 'POP' and die. I replaced it, the CPU, and ram along with a new PS. Then the IDE CDROM always read 'zero' for any media placed in it, so I bought a new USB DVD/CD do-all drive (LG G0 The system was desktop Dual (sic) Boot with WinXP. The XP would boot from the GRUB, but no Ubuntu. I used >find /vmlinuz and got H0,6, right where it always was. But I could not get it to boot

So I reformatted the IDE with Winxp (all my good stuff is on a SATA drive that I left out of all this )) unplugged. The Live CD wouldn't find the IDE hard Drive XP had just installed on- same as BEFORE I reformatted it. I tried all the distros I have (Puppy through Slackware, Suse, Sabayon, etc) .

Nothing could find the IDE drive. I flashed BIOS on the new MB-no help. I put Linux on a Flash drive and booted from there- no help No Partitioner can SEE the IDE...but XP runs on the IDE C:/ just fine (ntfs for C:, with 70GB unpartitioned, waiting for Linux) I am at a loss.

As far as I know, if the BIOS sees the IDE, and XP can run on it, the IDE HD is THERE and working. Yet no Linux can see the IDE HD, XP partition, blank partition, NOTHING. even dmesg shows no IDE The boot text shows no IDE in linux, right after the BIOS lists it correctly while booting.

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting LyX 1.6.5 For Karmic?

Apr 19, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to get the newest build for LyX properly (ie not from building it myself) for Karmic. I do

sudo apt-get upgrade lyx , but it doesn't pick up the 1.6.5 (although it looks like it is prepared to ship out with Lucid. Any ideas on how to get it to just work? It's these minor problems with Ubuntu being slow to upgrade to the newest builds of software (ie Firefox 3.6) that makes it a little bit frustrating. Maybe I should learn to program so I can help out more...

Ubuntu Installation :: PLop Will Not Recognize The Usb ?

Jan 3, 2010

i am currently trying to install xubuntu on an old computer of mine, the problem is that the computer's cd drives are no longer functional but the usb drives are. so i figured i could make a bootable usb and install it that way.I already made the bootable usb and tried to boot the computer using the usb, but it would just load like normal.I continued to search around and found that i could use PLop Boot Manager to force my computer to boot from usb, the problem is that i have installed PLop and yet it will not recognize the usb device.why PLop will not recognize the usb or come up with another way besides PLop for my to install xubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Ate Karmic

Jan 8, 2010

I installed Windows 7 onto the unallocated 150GB space on my 250 GB hard drive with no trouble. But, when I restart my computer it goes directly to Windows and pretends that I have no Ubuntu partition at all. I realize that this is because Windows doesn't like GRUB and really hates GRUB2, but I can't seem to fix this. I downloaded the latest release of Easy BCD which gave me a promising screen upon start up where it allows me to select "Ubuntu" instead of "Windows 7" but then it goes to a GRUB command screen. What do I do here?

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic On Zotac Ion 330 Itx-A?

Jan 9, 2010

I've been trying to install karmic from a usb key onto a new zotac ion 300 itx-A board and can't get into the liveCD to test things out. The system boots to the install menu and when I select "Try Ubuntu..." the system hangs on a blinking cursor. This also happens if I choose the "safe graphics" mode.

Selecting "Install Ubuntu" has the same result. I recently used the same usb key to install karmic onto my laptop so I know it works. Searching for "karmic zotac ion" has led me to some posts about xorg not loading but that's after the initial install process and also on an alpha version of Karmic (I'll burn that bridge when i get to it). Others seem to have had no problem getting karmic installed.

I've also tried mythbuntu and 64-bit jaunty with the same results. Is there any way I can find out what's causing this hang? I can't get into a console or anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic And GRUB2 ?

Jan 14, 2010

I posted this about 3 weeks ago in the 'Desktop' forum and with no replies feel this may be a better area

I've got Karmic installed on my netbook which I understand uses Grub2 which is still a BETA version.

I still seem to have the original GRUB (legacy) within the file system, still have a menu.lst file but is appears to be showing the contents of grub.cfg at boot time.

What is happening at boot time, is GRUB Legacy handing over to GRUB2 at boot or is the an option for GRUB2 to hand over to Grub Legacy.

Ubuntu Installation :: Enabling PAE In Karmic?

Ubuntu rocks but I am having trouble enabling PAE.

I want to do it to have my full 4Gb RAM recognized by my 32bit OS. At the moment System Monitor only recognizes 3.2Gb and the command "free -m" shows the same value.

I followed these instructions but they don't seem to work: [URL]

PS: The point is to really understand how to achieve this and not to start a debate "32bit vs 64bit OS choice"

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Karmic ISO Untraceable?

May 14, 2010

I have been trying 10.04 Lucid for the past two weeks. Personally I think it has too many gadgets and kinky stuff. Maybe nice to play with, maybe this era just needs that kind of thing but I prefer a reliable, sturdy machine. Look at it as if I had to choose between a Hummer and an old Willy's jeep; I would choose the latter.So this Lucid thing is not really what I need, so I would like to get back to Karmic or even maybe Jaunty.How big was my surprise when I noticed on visiting the official ubuntu download pages that all there is left to download is . . . 10.04 Lucid. Even when you follow the links to what should get you other distro's you come out at ... 10.04 Lucid!!Strange, but this gives me really a "Microsoft" feeling: you shall only use the product that WE have chosen for youFrankly, this leaves me quite disappointed, and IMHO is completely the opposite of the Ubuntu way of life.

But, who am I to complaint. Luckily I still have a perfectly good working 8.04 Hardy and even a Hardy live CD, so this gives me the opportunity to upgrade now that this still is possible.And, maybe, I didn't look in the right places. But given that I am not native English speaking (like most of the world population out there), I sometimes have a lot of trouble understanding some of the more technical data I am encountered with. Being Dutch-speaking, I even went over to the Dutch Ubuntu-site. There I followed the link for downloading Karmic and found myself at ... the official Ubuntu 10.04 download site

Ubuntu Installation :: Are There Different Karmic 9.10 Releases

Sep 7, 2010

How do I install a specific one? Or better yet, revert back to an earlier release.

I have two systems running.
2.6.31-22-generic #60-Ubuntu aphrodite release
2.6.31-22-generic #63-Ubuntu amaterasu release

I googled the #60 and #63 and it listed release names highlighted above, is this correct?

If it is, how can I install the aphrodite release?

I have one system working great (#60), while the other exhibits problems playing back 1080p video files (#63). The only HW difference that could affect the dropping frames is the 8200/8300 Nvidia chipsets (with the 8200 working perfectly) and then of course the Karmic releases. I have re-installed the system and files twice and even upgraded new releases of Nvidia drivers (195 > 256) with no success.

My next step is to try and install the same exact release of Karmic if indeed there is a difference between #60 and #63.

My next step might be to use clonezilla and clone the OS (Root) and try that. But then the chipsets for sound are different as well as the ehternet chipset. But that shouldn't impair the video.

Ubuntu Installation :: Apache To Recognize Cgi Scripts?

Feb 11, 2010

I have an issue that few people are probably going to want to help me with. I'm trying to configure apache on my present system so that I can run perl cgi programs locally. I feel like my perl is developing well, but I've reached a plateau, and wish to go further by learning cgi programming.

The problem is, I can't seem to get any of the example programs to work. After a bit of research, it seems that I need to configure my apache to recognize cgi scripts. I've tried numerous places, but all of the explanations go over my head as I am still a novice linux user. I know how to compile a C program, mkdir, cd, ls, cat ... and then we're stretching my capabilities. I continue to learn every day, and have bought a few books which are helping me get there. I even bought an apache book, but it's not helping me much.

My question: can someone help me set up apache at least to the point where I can run cgi scripts? Assume that I have done nothing further than: sudo apt-get install apache2. I don't even have a cgi-bin dir yet as I don't know where these belong, or how to do a script-alias.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Does Not Recognize Windows 7

Feb 28, 2010

I have 2 hard drives, first drive (hd0) is for data, second drive (hd1) is for the OS's. Windows 7 was installed on (hd1) a few months ago and wiped out GRUB. But today, I decided to go back to Ubuntu. I performed a fresh install of 9.10 x64 to (hd2), GRUB2 works and finds Ubuntu (both the newly installed x64, and the previous x86 versions), but it does not see Windows 7. The only goal I have right now, is to make Windows 7 bootable, once again.

My "sudo fdisk -l" (typing manually, so skipping the Blocks)
Device Boot Id System
/dev/sdb1 83 Linux -- where x64 9.10 is
/dev/sdb2 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sdb5 83 Linux -- where x86 9.04 is
/dev/sdb6 83 Linux -- /home
/dev/sdb7 82 Linux Swap / Solaris
/dev/sdb8 87 HPFS/NTFS -- Windows 7

Things I've tried so far:
1) Automatically finding Windows: sudo update-grub2
2) Reinstalling grub via Live CD (9.10): sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/(where sdb1 - x64 Ubuntu is) /dev/sdb
3) Forgetting Ubuntu altogether and fixing boot using Windows 7 - bootrec.exe /fixmbr; bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Now, number 3 is interesting, I found out that where Windows is installed, /dev/sdb8, is a logical partition, and cannot be made active (bootable). This led me to try number 4:

4) Updating /etc/grub.d with custom 40_Win7 file, and making it bootable (the GRUB makeactive, GRUB2 parttool command):
echo "Adding Win 7 to Bootloader" >&2
cat << EOF
menuentry "Windows 7" {
insmod ntfs
set root=(hd1,8 )
parttool (hd1,8 ) boot+
chainloader +1

When I update grub.cfg after trying #4, it gives me the "not a primary partition" error. So now I am confused. Windows 7 was able to boot previously from this very partition, and I don't think installing 9.10 would change a partition type from primary to logical. So, why can't it boot? More importantly, what can I do to boot Windows 7?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Won't Recognize Hard Disk?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm trying to install 10.04 but during the Prepare Partitions step no hard disk is listed for me to partition.

The hard disk is a Seagate SATA (7200.7) drive and my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3. The hard disk works because I just installed a fresh copy of Windows XP on it without a problem and the OS on the disk prior to this was an older version of Debian.

Does anyone know how I can get my hard disk listed so I can install 10.04?

Installation :: Ubuntu Dont Recognize Partitions?

May 17, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu LTS 10.04 on an IBM Lenovo T61 Thinkpad notebook with Windows 7 preinstalled on it. There were two hard drives one 30 GB and other almost 110 GB which (the second one) I resized in three partitions with the help of Windows 7 disk management. Now when I try to install Ubuntu, the partition manager doesn't recognize the newly created partitions it only shows 2 partitions C: and old 100+ GB D:. I had created a separate partition for Ubuntu also but I can't see it so can't install Ubuntu on it, I can't resize the visible partition because it is divided into three actually and I have data on each of three.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 UNR Does Not Recognize Hard Drive?

Aug 3, 2010

I've been trying for hours now to get Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix onto my HP Mini 1030NR. It boots up fine from the flash drive, but then when I go to install UNR on the hard drive I get through the first 3 steps and then get stuck. It goes to the "Prepare partitions" screen but no devices are shown to be partitioned. I formatted the hard drive I'm trying to install on on another computer to NTFS, so it should be blank and ready to go? I should probably mention the drive doesn't show up in GParted either. Is there something obvious I'm overlooking?

I've tried the methods suggested in this thread to no avail: [URL]
