Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Freezes During Install?

Feb 20, 2010

Ubuntu Karmic worked fine on my computer when it was first released but now doing a fresh install on my computer is totally impossible. The hardware is all the same.If I attempt to install from Live mode - karmic freezes when it's configuring Apt and ubiquity-dm crashes when installing direct from boot.I have switched to Mint but I would like to go back go to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Freezes During Boot?

Jan 11, 2010

I have been getting squashfs errors in the live usb created by various means(unetbootin,usbcreater,pendrive linux software).

There seems to be no error in my media or my hw. I have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions and the md5 sums of both match with the hashes given online. I havent yet tested with a compact disk, but i am sure the hw is working fine (it just booted 9.04 from usb..)

I have tried a few boot options [URL] to no avail. Also by turning off the quiet mode during boot, I see that the a few errors are "Unable to read from /dev/sdb" which should be the usb drive itself.

I will try a CD now, but my cd drive is not working. I hope to get a usb drive and boot from it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Koala - Slow Jerky And Has Odd Freezes Like Windows - Applications Randomly Stop Working

Nov 7, 2010

I had been happily on Jaunty Jackalope until they stopped supporting it so I took the forced upgrade and it's HORRIBLE!

I feel like I'm back in Windows land. Within an hour of my first load I had my very first Ubuntu total-lockup. Just like Windows. In the 18 months I'd been using Jackalope I had not had a single crash. Not one.

It's slow, jerky, and has odd freezes. Just like Windows. Applications randomly stop working and die. Just like Windows.

Is there any way to fall back to Jackalope or is there any hope of them fixing Koala? 'Cause this is wretched.

I see there's another version out there...10.04.01.LTS. I'll try that. It can't be much worse.

Ubuntu :: Karmic 9.10 Freezes And Crashes All Time

Feb 21, 2010

The system freezes all the time and I have no idea why, and the temp of core goes up to 56. Also, on the boot, right after grub menu selection, it restarts itself sometimes, again I have no idea why. I have lenovo y530. Which logs do you need?

Ubuntu :: Karmic Freezes, Where To Find The Logs

Apr 6, 2010

I installed Karmic no problems with drivers or malfunctioning hardware. The problem is I get random freezes where the computer will stop doing what I ask it to do. Num Lock Key does not respond, neither does anything else but the mouse. Where would I find the logs to know what is happening?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic Freezes When Video Played?

Feb 12, 2010

I decided to take the plunge and I totally replaced windows XP Pro w/ Karmic. I'm working on getting theatre mode set up as well as syncing my iphone.

for this problem I've set up dual desktop mode(both with the guide I found for Nvidia, and with ATI Catalyst control center) through the guide, the computer would freeze randomly and with CCC it seems to freeze when I start a video on the TV display.

I'm running a P4 3.2Ghz, 4G DDR2, ATI 256mb card w/ HDMI out

UPDATE: By changing the screen effects to none the computer doesn't freeze anymore

Ubuntu :: Karmic Freezes On Boot Up During Splash Screen?

Feb 14, 2010

I set up a dual boot on my laptop a few days ago, between Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 (installed from Live CD). All the hardware is working fine.

Anyway, SOMEtimes, during the splash screen , the screen turns off (physically turns off) and the hard disk seems to stop. I cant do anything appart from force it to power down.

Yet sometimes, it boots up fine.

I want Ubuntu to work first time EVERY time.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox On Karmic Freezes With Hulu?

Apr 9, 2010

i've seen several posts on other forums about problems similar to this but no solutions that apply to me. i've got the latest updates for karmic that i installed this week. i'm using an ibm t60 thinkpad with 01:00.0 vga compatible controller: ati technologies inc m52 [mobility radeon x1300]. i have dual monitors and firefox 3.5.8.

when i attempt to watch a movie on hulu, it appears to work for a brief moment and then freezes and the browser window goes grey. i've left it sitting like that for over 15 minutes and eventually had to force quit it.i'm able to use the gnome desktop effects and have no problems viewing other multimedia, like videos, etc. i'm very new to ubuntu and linux in general. i'm a mac head and still love mac's but have grown very fond of ubuntu in a short amount of time.

Ubuntu :: Ubu Karmic 2 Lucid Upgrade Now Random Freezes / Fix It?

Apr 26, 2011

1st post @ LQ. Ubuntu user since 2007ish. Lots of PC experience... now vexed by upgrade from 9.10 Karmic to 10.04LTS Lucid.

The problem: random freezes whenever I boot into Lucid as user through usual Grub menu. The freeze sequence is: 1- screen stops, 2- mouse pointer freeze w/ no effect on click but moves freely and keyboard is useless, 3- screen blacks out for about 30 seconds and then returns but is unusable and 4- constant HDD activity for about 5-10 seconds. I have waited several minutes for a recovery of some sort but no dice. I reboot via on/off or reset button. Ubu deletes 2 inodes and then I'm off and running again.

If I boot through the recovery console there are no problems at all. The recovery console sequence: 1- select recovery from Grub menu, 2- at recovery menu select drop to root command prompt, 3- give root password, 4- enter 'gdm' at console prompt, finish boot up in my only user desktop (not root.)

I have not been able to find any log files that show an error message, but I'm not so tech oriented that I would necessarily know one if I saw one. Through many hours of browsing posts describing Lucid problems @ UbuntuForums (one of which has over 1,000 responses) I have found my '.xsession-errors' file (attached) is full of data.code...

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Karmic Install Runs CPU At 95% To 100%?

Am running karmic on a P2-350 Mhz with 256 Mb RAM. Yes, I know this is an old computer, but it has been very good, performance wise, since versions earlier than 8.x I think.

But now, after a fresh install of karmic, it is very slow at everything. Checked system monitor and CPU is constantly running at between 95% and 100%

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Karmic Won't Install On IBM Intellistation 185 PowerPC

Feb 10, 2010

I'm a big convert on using Ubuntu on my x86/x64 machines.I have a nice IBM Intellistation 185 Power PC (ppc) with dual 970 processors and 8gb of ram (and 3 SCSI 300 MB drives).I tried to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it (the PPC distro) and it gets to the boot prompt, asks me how I want to install (I can choose "live" or "install", etc..). No matter which option I choose (I've tried them all) it hangs after trying to start the kernel at "returning from prom_init".

NI've also tried other distros to see where that got me - Debian does the exact same thing as Ubuntu (which makes sense). Yellow Dog Linux actually will install and run fine(I'm writing this from Firefox 3 in YDL). Since YDL works, I'd think that a version of Debian/Ubuntu should be able to work.Any ideas on how to debug this and find out why Ubuntu won't install (or even run the Live CD?)

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Koala 9.10 DVD Install Server Edition?

Jan 3, 2010

I bought a magazine "Ubuntu User" that comes with the 9.10 DVD (32- & 64-bit) to avoid heavy download.

1. What is the biggest benefit of the DVD versus the CD ? Having more software on the disc right ? But how can I install additional SW without downloading ?
2. I want to install a Home Server from the DVD but I don't know how to select the server edition to install ? Do I still need to download the CD image for the server edition ? I want to be able to select one or more of the automatic server installation scripts e.g. LAMP.

Ubuntu Installation :: Conemplating A Karmic Install With Software RAID 1?

Jan 26, 2010

I'm running a triple-core AMD 32-bit CPU, with two matched hard drives in a software RAID 1 configuration. The system is single-boot, running Hardy only. I have no Windoze compatibility issues to impede me. In some recent posts, I discussed my desire to add a few non-standard applications to Hardy. Well, it hasn't been working for me. I've succeeded in breaking my standard Python 2.5 installation, and the Python 2.6 that I was trying to install is also broken. After asking questions in various Python forums and not getting answers, I'm starting to think about my alternatives.

I have backed up all my hard-drive data, and downloaded Karmic. I'm running from the Live CD. I am considering a clean install, though of course I would save a lot of time if I could just upgrade.

Before I leap, I see one possible problem: Karmic has failed to mount any of my hard drive partitions, as RAID or otherwise. Should I worry? When I upgraded from Dapper to Hardy on an older (non-RAID) machine, I recall that my hard disk mounted from the Live CD just fine.

Also, am I correct in understanding that Karmic is RAID-aware right out of the box? I'm wondering if I'll have to set it up manually again. That took me a while. By the way, I didn't set up separate partitions for boot, root and home (stupid me). Can I do that after the fact during an upgrade?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Failing Completely On New Karmic Install?

Feb 19, 2010

I just installed Karmic Koala on one of my hard harddrive. The other disk has Windows XP. Previously I had a working dual-boot setup, but after problems with Ubuntu I reinstalled it. On booting, I get the following:

Code:
Grub Loading stage1.5
Grub loading, please wait...
Error 2

There is no Grub menu which might allow me to drop to a Grub prompt and evaluate. This occurs whether I boot with the Ubuntu harddrive or re-set the BIOS to boot with the Windows harddrive. If I boot with a LiveCD, I see that both my Ubuntu and Windows harddrives exist and are readable; the Ubuntu was indeed wiped clean and reinstalled; the issue is with the boot process. How can I set this up to boot?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Karmic On Laptop That Has HP's On Chip OS Installed?

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic (wubi Install) Won't Boot After Dist-upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

i have Karmic installed with Wubi inside a Vista NTFS filesystem. Yesterday i did an apt-get dist-upgrade and Karmic never booted again. It won't even show the grub kernel list, it just shows some really quick text that vanishes before i can even figure out what it is and then drops to some sort of grub shell and then i can't figure out what to do.

I could boot a livecd and mount my karmic install and everything seems fine, the filesystem is clean and all that. But how do i fix it so it can boot again?

Does anyone here know wtf happened? Was there a bad upgrade or something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista / Dell XPS Won't Install Or Boot From Karmic Disc

Jan 17, 2010

I've never tried installing any other operating system on my desktop so I'm not sure if it's a 9.10 bug (probably not), but whenever I choose any of the options after the ubuntu cd has been loaded at startup it goes to a black screen with the underscore at the top, and promptly reboots. At this point in time I can just boot back into windows or get to the same selection screen off of the cd.I've tried burning 3 seperate cd's and at the moment and trying to boot them on my laptop (but not working... hrm). I'm thinking about redownloading the iso in a couple minutes.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Doesn't Detect WindowsXp After Karmic Install

Feb 15, 2010

I installed Ubuntu9.10 on a USB hard drive attached to my laptop. Laptop has pre-installed XP in the in-built hard-drive. Point to be noted is that my hard-drive is protected via encryption software called Pointsec.

The installation of Ubuntu on the USB hard drive went through fine and I'm able to boot Ubuntu from it.

But now the problem is, GRUB2 fails to detect the Windows XP installation.

Can someone tell me how I can force GRUB2 to boot Windows XP from hd0,0?

The GRUB1 way of configuring /etc/grub/menu.lst does NOT seem to work with GRUB2.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Karmic Xen DomU On Etch Dom0 Via Debootstrap?

Mar 10, 2010

I have an etch-based Xen server that has several Xen domU's on it. All the domU's are etch or lenny based, but I'd like to install a karmic guest. I use xen-tools to install my domU's - e.g., xen-create-image --debootstrap <etc.>After much googling, I've found bits and pieces of info that have gotten me closer to the goal, but the debootstrap script I have is for hoary (I think etch came with this), and I'm pretty sure this won't work.

If you have been able to successfully install a Karmic guest on an etch or lenny host, I'd be very grateful for pointers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Setup: Warning: Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR - Install - Lvm - Luks - Raid - Karmic Server

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running Karmic Server with GRUB2 on a Dell XPS 420. Everything was running fine until I changed 2 BIOS settings in an attempt to make my Virtual Box guests run faster. I turned on SpeedStep and Virtualization, rebooted, and I was slapped in the face with a grub error 15. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine how these two settings could cause a problem for GRUB, but they have. To make matters worse, I've set my server up to use Luks encrypted LVMs on soft-RAID. From what I can gather, it seems my only hope is to reinstall GRUB. So, I've tried to follow the Live CD instructions outlined in the following article (adding the necessary steps to mount my RAID volumes and LVMs). [URL]

If I try mounting the root lvm as 'dev/vg-root' on /mnt and the boot partition as 'dev/md0' on /mnt/boot, when I try to run the command $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0, I get an errors: grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea. grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.

Somewhere in my troubleshooting, I also tried mounting the root lvm as 'dev/mapper/vg-root'. This results in the grub-install error: $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0 Invalid device 'dev/md0'

Obviously, neither case fixes the problem. I've been searching and troubleshooting for several hours this evening, and I must have my system operational by Monday morning. That means if I don't have a solution by pretty early tomorrow morning...I'm screwed. A full rebuild will by my only option.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Freezes / Do That From Lan?

Aug 28, 2010

Well, it's a weird problem.
I had an old desktop pc, and I downloaded and burned both Karmic and Lucid desktop and alternate ISOs. I installed the karmic alternate in that PC, and things went smoothly.

Now a friend of mine gave me his old Packard Bell Easynote R laptop. It has a centrino 1.6GHz mother, 1GB RAM and a 60GB disk. The GPU (Geforce Go 6200) overheats a lot, but I have lurked around and found out this is a common issue.
Well, so I installed Win XP, and recently I wanted to install xubuntu here as well.
Thing is, the desktop install freezes. It does nothing, I can't even use the Live CD.
The alternate install goes well until the proper install, and then starts complaining about missing files in the CD.

Two things: The CD is perfect, I just tried it on my other desptop PC and it goes well.
The laptop cd tray is well too, I install things all the time, and I tried to install a game after this happened, to try and see if it was this, but it appears to work just fine.

I don't know what could be causing this. And I don't know enough to change things at the install prompt (noacpi, thing like that, I don't know what they mean).

Has anyone experienced something like this? If so, is there a solution? I believe this laptop cannot boot from flash drive, in the boot menu I only have HD, CD-DVD, Floppy and LAN.

Another thing: If is a CD issue, is there a way to install this from LAN? (that is, using my other working PC to do this?)

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Install Freezes On Welcome Screen

I tried to install ubuntu 9.10 with the live cd, but my computer freezes on the welcome screen, where you select the language (for the second time).After that the ubuntu logo starts pulsing and after a while the welcome screen appears. At this point, my mouse and keyboard are frozen (though the laser is still working) and the only way is to turn my computer off. I can't even eject the cd rom.
