after upgrading to lucid lynx ubuntu doesn't boot with the new kernels 2.6.32-22-generic and 2.6.32-23-generic (also in recovery mode). But it's does boot with the previous 2.6.31-21-generic kernel. At the time i was hoping to wait it out, but a new kernel has come and the problem persisted. I've been trying to find a solution for this but somehow, amid lots of failed boot blank black screen threads, i didn't relate to any solution. The boot seems to go well until a pixelated logo appears (before the login screen), then goes to a blank black screen and there it stays stuck with no remedy. Looking into dmesg logs - albeit some differences between 2.6.31-21 and the newer 2.6.32-23 - the failed boot seems proper in both logs. In Xorg logs the differences are bigger but i cannot pinpoint a source for this problem.
I just did a distribution upgrade on my laptop from 9.1 to 10.04, and it went fine for the most part except this issue. After it boots up, I don't see any window titles/scrollbars/borders and on clicking the icon for "Show desktop" on the bottom left I see the following error message: "Your window manager does not support the show desktop button, or you are not running a window manager."
After googling a bit, I realized that gnome-wm is not starting automatically and so I have to manually start each time to see the windows working properly. Can somebody tell me if there is a way to make sure that gnome-wm starts automatically? I know I can put it in my .bashrc but I want to do it the correct way if possible. If not, I will have to go with that workaround
I am running Lucid Lynx kernel 18.104.22.168. Soon after the latest kernel update I noticed that Virtualbox would not launch when I clicked on the icon. I have searched the Internet for days, tried numerous possible fixes, over hours of effort, but can't get it working at all. Ubuntu Lucid runs great!! There are no errors just a few blinks of the hard drive indicator and nothing. Is there anyone out there that has seen this same issue?
This occurs ocassionally So i cannot even use the system. The default kernel is panicking and also the new kernel that i installed after the update. now the problem still exists and it is rendering my system unusable. i have put it in ubuntu forums. may be lucid is not supporting older hardware. mine is Athlon xp 1.8ghz ASUS a8NE mb 2GB raM. 82 GB HDD. earlier versions of ubuntu 9.04 was stable and i had the kernel panicking problem in it after i updated the kernel. As the problem remains a problem. I am not at all satisfied with lucid lynx it is unstable. cannot install updates in the update manager. Firefox vanishes while browsing the web.Then i have to restart it. shall i quit ubuntu or go for other Linux distros.
I have tried out Lucid Lynx Beta 1 back in march. During the installation I was announced that support for bluetooth was dropped. I installed anyway, thinking it would be back in the Final Release. Meanwhile (between March and April) I reinstalled Karmic because I really needed the bluetooth. I can see in the upgrade that bluetooth still isn't available. What should I do about this? Is there a way to keep Lucid Lynx and bluetooth? Or will I have to stay on Karmic until the end of times?
While leaving my laptop to install the upgrades, I hadn't noticed how the power cord had slipped loose. When I came back my computer must have shut off due to battery loss. When I booted up my computer again, I couldn't boot up Ubuntu under any of the kernels, -20,-19, etc. I get cryptic messages such as "unable to enumerate USB device on port 2," device not accepting messages," and "device descriptor read." i definitely intend to recover my data. I had been upgrading from 9.10 to the latest version of lucid lynx.
Decided to try out Ubuntu instead of automatically getting the next Windows OS.
I have a Dell Dimension E310 with on board video card (will be relevant soon, I think).
After trying making my own CD and not being able to at least run the LiveCD (thought it was my fault even thought the MD5 #'s matched correctly), I went to Shipit and got a CD delivered of Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). When I put the CD into my computer while running windows, the CD is not recognized, which seems strange to me. When I put the same CD into my work laptop (note that both computers are running XP), I can see the contents of the CD. Decide that it might not be an issue and restart the computer in the hope of booting from the CD. CD is never recognized and looking at the bootmenu, it has USB-cdRom at the top of the list.
More information: CPU is an Intel Pentium 4, 3.2Ghz. I don't believe it is a 64bit computer but I can't verify that. I mention this because I believe the CD I got is the 32bit version and that it should be sufficient but I figured I'd throw it out there in case someone else knew something.
I want to install Ubuntu Server distro. First i downloaded ubuntu-10.04.1-server-amd64.iso and "burned" it to my usb-pen using UltraIso software for windows. That booted from the usb, but just after punshing in the language etc it complains that it cant find the cdrom or something like that. then i try the [url], but that wont boot at all with this same iso mentioned above. and burn it to a darn CD. it boots, but somewhere during the process it stops and asks for the same cd that is actually in the drive already. there is a thread about this here: [url] I then wanted to find an easy iso that i could throw on my usb-pen and install the whole thing through ftp like i did in the old days with floppies. but man, i got lost in the documentation with no clear path on how to do it.
After my 8.04 debacle here:I basically gave up on trying to write an install guide for Hardy and Amanda. Others had done it better and with how muddled I was by the end of getting a working server, I wasn't sure I could repeat it.Now in Lucid, I've managed to get another working amanda server going, I'm fairly sure I can repeat it and but I question:Installation with 'apt-get install amanda-server' uses the user backup in the group backup.Installation of the ZWC client uses the user amandabackup. while thankfully ZWC has included reg keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREmandaWC1.0Install BackupUserHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREmandaWC1.0Install RecoveryUserto change the user on the client, this is messy, requires regedit (which normally is locked out by group policy), editing the service in service.msc and creation of a new user account named backup in addition to the installer's default on each client.The actual question is:1) Is there a reason for the use of backup:backup? (rather than amandabackup:disk or amandabackup:backup) 2) Is there any sort of flag that could be set, script to change the user within the repo atinstall time.Or generally an easier way of doing this than compiling each time I do an install.
But when I look in my sources.list, the PPA repository is not there. Nevertheless I SUSPECT I'm receiving it's updates.Is there a file that PPAs are being written to other than sources.list?Should I manually update sources.list in order to add this PPAs?
I installed lucid lynx over a year ago on a IBM A20m laptop. I've been happily using ubuntu up to now until yesterday when I installed Tor and Torbutton. When I rebooted, I got a blank screen after the IBM startup routine. Thinking that somehow the system got corrupted by my Tor installation, I decided to reinstall lucid lynx from the CD. Surprise! The install CD also gives a blank screen!
I hit a key to get the menu and and the three first three choices all result in the same blank screen: * Try Ubuntu without installing * Install Ubuntu * Check disk for defects
To help debug this, I tried setting the F6 option nomodeset and I removed "quiet splash" from the boot options.
I was using the 9.10 version of Ubuntu, and everything was ok. So I decided to update to 10.04, by update manager, and it not works pretty well. So I decided to reinstall my ubuntu. In my PC I also have a instalation of Windows XP, my father and sister uses it. The installation went well, no problems, Lucid Lynx is working fine. But in the grub screen, if you choose Win XP, the CPU starts to whisthle continuously, and the only thing you can do is restart.
I have been reading about it, but do not find the exactly same problem. I have posted a thread in a portuguese forum (im from Brasil) and have no good responses. Sorry about the bad English, I dont have to much experience writing.
I've downloaded 10.04 desktop (twice) and server (once). The server install will boot fine, but the desktop install goes to a blank screen (and the monitor goes to sleep) after leaving the Live CD menu (Run from CD, Install, Check Files, Boot 1st HD, etc.).My first try at downloading the desktop CD was using BitTorrent, and appeared to go OK. Burned the .iso image, booted, and when I got the blank screen I suspected the Intel D101GGC motherboard using the Radeon Xpress 200 chipset had problemsI tried adding boot options (F6) such as vga=711 and xforcevesa and text. No joyOthers seemed to have gotten a successful install so I turned may attention to the CD, suspecting it was a bad download/burn, and downloaded 10.04 desktop again from mirror.pnl.gov/releases/. The two .iso images compared equal, so I used a different CD burner, with different media and got CDs which compare identical. Both CDs fail. Then I downloaded the server CD from PNL and it ran! I could select the "test CD" function, which ran in a text mode and said the server CD was OK. I started the install, and it went OK.
I just purchased a new PC with the following specs:
Intel Core i5-760 ASUS P5P55D-E LX (S1156 mobo) Sapphire HD 5750 Vapor-X 1GB Video Card Samsung 1TB HDD Corsair DDR3 PC1333 Gaming RAM - 2x2GB DVD: Samsung DVD burner (internal)
I have made several trials to install Lucid Lynx but all failed:
1. Installed Windows 7 64-bit, hdd formatted as NTFS and ext3, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.
2. Installed Windows XP 32-bit, hdd formatted as FAT32, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.
3. Trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit with a clean hdd formatted as FAT32: failed.
In all the scenarios above, I have tried using Ubuntu installers on CD, DVD, or USB. on CD and DVD, the process always stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen, not even reached the langauage selection screen. On USB, with Legacy set to On in the BIOS, it did run and started by the option screen where we get to choose booting from the usb, or booting from hdd, or memory test, etc., but after choosing the booting from usb (and then hdd also) option, the process also stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen. I have experience dual booting Windows XP with Lucid Lynx on an older system, so I'm not completely new in this. I'd like to know what actually went wrong?
My Mythweb is asking for authentication but none username/password will work. It just prompts for authentication over and over again. I've found few configurations regarding authentication:
in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf I have following lines: <Directory "/var/www/mythweb"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AuthType Basic AuthName "MythTV" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/httpd-passwords require user user1 user2 [Code]...
none of the username/paswd pairs in Authuserfile are working? Can there be yet another file / configuraton somewhere? How do I know which one apache is using right now?
I learned yesterday that doing a massive upgrade on my system while moving was a BAAAD idea.The upgrade process was going along just fine, it was all downloaded and was actually installing that last time I saw it. I unplugged my laptop to move a bookcase out, and completely forgot to plug it back in. After I got back from moving a load, I found my computer was off. I tried to boot up, and I got an error that kind of freaked me out. It reads as follows:
Code:kernel panic not syncing vfs unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)I'm able to get to grub just fine, and my windows partition loads up just fine, but any of the linux kernels fail similarly when I attempt to load them.I'm sure that I can fix this, I just have no idea how. Probably has something to do with a live cd.
I created an installation CD and even a usb stick of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and Natty Narwhal and I keep having freezes during installation.
1. Set my BIOS to boot on CD/ usb stick 2. My computer starts to boot from CD/ usb stick 3. Ubuntu logo plus 5 dots screen shown 4. After that I am shown a snowy green screen with white lines running lengthwise and it freezes.
I already tried creating a new CD and usb stick after re-downloading the .iso installation file and creating the process of creating an installer over and over but still the same problem. Is it a hardware problem or my installer is the problem. I tried installing my old CD of Ubuntu Jaunty that I requested from Ubuntu a long time ago and I can install it without any problems. I am using Jaunty right now...........
This is basically the same install process for 9.10. I didn't run into any trouble after installing Skype on several different machines, this is of course assuming that your sound input/output worked before hand and isn't muted.[URL]s
I upgraded from 9.10KK to 10.04LL recently. The process did not go well. I was first instructed to update KK, which I did. The update and subsequent upgrade had various difficulties, the specifics of which I do not recall. 10.04 ran,with various errors and abnormalities, for a couple days.
I have a Compaq Presario, SR1503WM with 750 meg of RAM. I normally boot to Ubuntu on my primary harddrive, but can redirect to a Win2K boot from the other drive. I'm in Windows now, sending this.
If I do a normal boot now, to Ubuntu, and select FF or Opera, I get "Could not Locate Remote Server". It suggests I uncheck "Work Offline". I do and this still gets me nowhere.
I went to System/Admin/Network Connections and all of the tabs were empty. In the WIRED tab, I clicked on ADD and a new WiredConnection1 was established, and,after reboot, is still there, but it does nothing.
I have a cable connecting me to the modem, haven't tried to install wireless yet. This has been sufficient for months, and as I said, still works for Windows.
I think I should go ahead and ReInstall 10.04LL. I upgraded without an install disk.
I am running version 9.04. Recently I am having difficulties installing updates being provided through Update Manager. I can perform the "Important updates" perfectly fine, but when I tried to do the "Other Updates" I get a request to insert the new Lucid Lynx version CD, which I do not have. Why is it asking for this CD?
Some of you may have had with issues after installing GIMP on Lucid Lynx 10.04. Which may be directly related to "gimp-help-en", which could prevent you from installing other applications and preforming system tasks. If so, use this method to fix it.
Process: (Terminal > $ sudo apt-get install gimp)
1. After installing Gimp go to the terminal:
2. Then load up the language support application:
3. Then it will ask you to install the "gimp-help-en", confirm it.
I think this issue is directly linked to a systems with multiple languages, but I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.
I am trying to install Lucid on my Laptop but can't get the live cd to boot correctly. At the moment, it's giving me a purple screen with a white logo at the bottom, then a black screen with the underscore character blinking, and then nothing. (I have an HP tm2, with a USB DVD/CD drive. 64bit intel core 2 duo. I am using the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop AMD64 .iso. I also tried the i386 .iso)
Ubuntu 10.04 is unable to set up my Canon Pixma IP 6000D printer.So earlier tonight when my wife wanted 2 recipes she saw on this am's Today Show, I had to restart my computer with a Fedora 13 live CD in the drive. F13 quickly installs my Canon printer and I am able to print the recipes.But this sure is a convoluted way of printing 2 short text files.to get my printer to work with Ubuntu.I've been using Ubuntu almost 2 years now, and love it, love it, love it, except for this one little thing.
