Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 10.04 Not Installed - Failed To Unmount Partitions

Jun 4, 2010

When I try to install Kubuntu 10.04 from the live CD (ran the installer from the Live Desktop) I get this error:

I then get sent back to the partitioner after clicking continue. Nothing but the installer/live desktop is using the cdrom. How do I install it? I have also tried running the installer without the live desktop, and it still throws the same error at me.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed To Unmount Partitions - Install From Iso?

Feb 9, 2011

I am attempting to install 10.10 from the iso because I have no working cdrom. I uncompressed the .iso to a ext3 partitions and put the correct entries in the menu.lst file. It starts ok. The problem occurs when I attempt to install to the hard drive. At a point I get the error,

Failed to unmount partitions The installer needs to commit changes to the partition tables, but cannot do so because partitions on the following mount points could not be unmounted./cdrom I have a choice of continue or go back. If I continue the install hangs. If I go back I cannot continue. How do I fix this problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove The 10.04 - Unmount Any Logical Partitions Having A Number Higher Than 5?

Feb 24, 2011

My partition table is as follows:

sda1 - WinRE - Something Windows uses
sda2 - Windows7
sda3 - Data


I need to remove Ubuntu 10.04 and so I therefore need to remove sda5 and sda6, right? Upon deleting sda5 in Gparted it tells me to "unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 5".

Ubuntu :: How To Eject Ipod With Kubuntu (not Unmount)

Feb 9, 2011

I have an ipod shuffle that will only charge if I eject it. This is easy to do with Ubuntu as I only have to right click on the ipod icon and select "eject." If I select unmount instead, the ipod does not charge. I am now trying out kde 4.6 with Kubuntu, but cannot see a way to eject. There is an option to safely remove the ipod, but this does not correspond to the eject option in Ubuntu as the ipod does not subsequently charge.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 10.04 Beta1 Live CD Installer Does Not Show Partitions?

Apr 4, 2010

I am booting from a USB stick live CD image of Kubuntu 10.04 Beta. When I run the installer, and choose the "manual select partitons" option, it lists only my full hardisk, whereas I have atleast 5 partitions on it, and none are shown. Could anybody help me with this? I want to install on one of the partitions and leave the rest intact. I am dual-booting BTW.

Fedora :: Mount And Unmount Data Partitions

Jul 29, 2011

I'm in the process of building a new Fedora machine. I use the machine for a VMWare server, the file server for the house as well as a Linux desktop for work.My current machine has a single 1.5GB hard drive. The new machine will have a mirrored RAID drive(2TB). I'm also contemplating using a smaller 250GB drive for the OS installation. I would then divide up the 2TB drive into /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions where the bulk of the data would reside.The goal is to be able to unmount the /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions when I need to upgrade the OS version with the data intact and remount them once the new install is complete.

The goal is to keep the family network file shares and my Virtual machines intact while reinstalling the new Fedora OS from scratch. In theory it should work. I just want to mak an (in)sanity check to ensure it will work in practice.

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 :: Installed Kubuntu For The Wrong Archetecture

Jul 10, 2011

A couple weeks ago I became fed up with using Backtrack5 as a primary OS, as fun as it is, and installed Kubuntu 64-bit for AMD on a laptop with an intel chip. I didn't see an intel iso on Kubuntu's site right away, and I suppose I was too excited to try it to care. I have been having some problems with plugins working correctly, but i'm not even sure this architectural mixup is to blame for that.

To cut to the chase, should I be worried about installing kubuntu that was intended for AMD on a board with an intel chip? I figure i havent really done anything I can't easily redo yet, and if I want to reinstall, i'd like to do it before I cross that bridge!

Ubuntu Servers :: Unmount Of /dev/nbd0 Failed?

Oct 24, 2010

After in-place upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, the message

Unmount of /dev/nbd0 failed
appears on the console at shutdown, with a warning that data may be lost, and followed by a 10 second countdown, after which shutdown continues normally.
Syslog shows this one line at each boot:

Oct 23 10:04:16 m2a74am kernel: [ 1.203334] nbd: registered device at major 43
Nothing gets mounted explicitly at /dev/nbd0, so I am puzzled about the error message on shutdown.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Installer Failed To Install On HDD With Four Partitions

Jul 2, 2010

HDD with four partitions: Three DOS bootable primary partitions are located in the head, and the residual extended partition is divided into several logical drives.

1st trial: 10.04 installer recognized the last largest logical drive for system installation, but installer truncated the extended partition, and created the "terrible" 5th primary partition at the end of the HDD. GParted and other utilities cannot access to this 5th primary partition. (So, I restored the lost partition table on the HDD manually by MBM. But several OS were broken.)

2nd trial: To avoid making this "terrible" 5th primary partition, I located the largest logical drive for installation at not of the end.10.04 installer recognized this logical drive, but failed again.I tried GParted. but also failed to formating to ext4.Maybe, 10.04 installer failed at this formating step. Logical drives are not supported in 10.04 ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Natty Fails - Kubuntu - Xubuntu Installed

Apr 29, 2011

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Failed 10.04 - Installed Encountered An Unrecoverable Error?

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to install 10.04 32bit onto a new 1.5TB harddrive. I had previously installed 10.04 64bit on an old drive in the same nmachine. I partitioned and formatted the new drive using the old system. I have a couple of windows partitions and restored Win2K images to them, 4 formated Ext3 partions for whever flavour of Linux appeals to me a swap and two huge NTFS Data (home) and work areas. I installed Grub on the new drive, it also has its own partition for boot config files. The old drive has now gone.

Grub2 boots OK and gives me option for all the OS's even the one that are gone, thats OK I can fix that later with grub-update. Win2K boots fine and I see my NTFS partitions.

Now I boot from the Live i386 CD and chosse to install Ubuntu. The only thing that not allowed to default is where to install. Specify partition manually, Choose a spare 20GB Ext3 and the swap is already there too. I let it reformat to Ext3 and mount as /. (In Advanced I let the install boot loader default to ticked on /dev/sda )

The install goes OK until I hit the pop-up "Installation Failed". The installed encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will be run etc etc..

I have tried this at least 10 times no. I downloaded and cut a new CD even though the old one worked fine on another box. Tried unticking the boot loader. Disable the floppy, removed the floppy.

I am relatively new to Ubuntu. Where do I look for the cause of the problem? I'll cut and paste the install log files in a moment.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get Eudora 8 Installed In 10.04 - Failed

May 19, 2010

Trying to get Eudora 8 installed in 10.04, but when I follow the Eudora instructions it fails. Here they are: The README file instructs thusly:

1. After downloading the file, open up a terminal window.

2. In the terminal window type in the following:

sudo tar -C /opt -xvf <place where you downloaded the file> (I assume they mean /home/pan/Downloads/. When I tried this, I put in sudo tar -C opt -xvf /home/pan/Eudora-8.0b9.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2. Fail.

tar: Record size = 8 blocks
tar: opt: Cannot chdir: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now)

3. Then create a link for easy execution by typing: sudo ln -s /opt/eudora/eudora /usr/local/bin/eudora

4. After installation is complete, we recommend that you read the README.txt file (this file) in /opt/eudora.

5. You will then be able to run Eudora from any command prompt by just typing in "eudora" (no quotes). If I can get past part 2 i am sure I am ok. Ideas what I am doing wrong?

General :: Installed Kubuntu Over Ubuntu

I'm kind of new to Linux even though I've played with it several times over the years. My question is this. I just installed Kubuntu from the SPM in Ubuntu and when I did a reboot, I can't login using my previous username and password. My assumption was that it would just use the same username and password from Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Installed OpenSUSE - Can't Boot Kubuntu

Dec 21, 2010

I have Win7, Kubuntu and a third OS (and home) partition for trying out others. I did Arch, Debian and Chakra without problems with triple booting. I skipped the bootloader installation/configuration step when installing those, booted into Kubuntu and ran update-grub to get the new one added to the boot list.

I used a separate partition for /boot (sda6), and have only one hard drive in this machine.

Following the same procedure (skip bootloader install) with openSUSE 10.3, I managed to loose the ability to boot Kubuntu.

I know the Kubuntu partition is fine (or at least still intact) and have since been able to get Windows added to the grub menu after a few attempts with grub-install and update-grub, which boots.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu 9.10 Installed - Lost Tty1 To 6

Feb 22, 2010

I've installed up a copy of Kubuntu 9.10. I want to use it to play eve online and replace my copy of windows. So far I have managed to get it installed, got the video drivers and wine sorted, and got eve online to work with wine. I'm quite happy with myself up until odd things started to happen. Basically, I want to recompile my Nvidia driver to a newer version, I know how to do this, I need to press ctrl alt F1 to drop to terminal, kill kde and then install the driver, i've done it before without issue. However this time around something is wrong. I press ctrl alt F1 and the black terminal window pops up... but I have no option to log in, same for terminals 2 - 6.

I did this, and sure enough none of my tty processes are showing, i've basically lost my terminals , as far as my limited experience goes, getty is responsible for the terminals right? How do I reinstate my terminals and get to a point I can kill kde and get back to shell? I have no idea what i've done to get in this state. Also, as a side question, before all got screwed up and i did manage to launch eve online, I could run one client perfectly. However with 2 clients things got all choppy and laggy? why is this? I can run 2 quite happily under windows 7

Ubuntu :: Installed Kubuntu Desktop And No Shutdown Or Restart In KDE

May 11, 2010

I just recently installed Kubuntu desktop onto Ubuntu and I don't have any shutdown or restart options shown in KDE, but they show up in Gnome. I initially installed Kubuntu using GDM instead of KDM and switched to KDM when I saw that my Gnome taskbars overlayed my KDE taskbars. To switch from GDM to KDM I used the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm

After enabling KDM the terminal suggested a command to configure KDM, however I can't remember the command. I ran it and I got a message that KDM was already configured.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Won't Recognize Partitions - Error Message Saying Partitions Over Sized

Mar 22, 2011

I used Ubuntu before, without problems but since the 10.04 version it won't recognize my partitions. I formated my laptop and partitioned it, installed Windows 7 64bit, which I need for my work, and wanted now to install Ubuntu 10.04/10. I then used GParted to check my Harddisk and it is having troubles to recognize my partitions, too while Windows finds them. GParted is giving me an error message saying my partitions are oversized. I am still in the beginning of my Linux experiences and so I don't know what to do. I have two 250GB harddisks (how Windows recognizes them),

Ubuntu Installation :: CD Doesn't Detect Partitions But No Apparent Overlapping Partitions?

Mar 3, 2010

Xubuntu 9.04 installation CD not detecting any of the current partitions. This all started when I reinstalled windows XP a few days ago.After, the computer wouldn't boot into GRUB and would boot directly into windows.Other threads have dealt with a similar issue, that of overlapping partitions causing libparted/parted/gparted to detect the whole drive as unallocated space. The problem in these threads seemed to be a corrupted partition table, in which the partitions overlapped with each other. So of course I checked the output of fdisk -l for overlapping partitions, but I don't see any obvious overlapping partitions. I've noticed that the partition that used to be linux swap isn't showing up in the partition table at all. I might just be missing something simple here and would like another set of eyes to help me figure this one out. Does the problem have anything to do with the partition table being out of order (ie. not in order of what regions they cover on the drive)? From the liveCD I've run


sudo fdisk -lu
sudo sfdisk -d
sudo parted /dev/sda print

and have received the following output:


ubuntu@ubuntu:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -lu
omitting empty partition (5)
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes
