Ubuntu Installation :: After 10.10 Upgrade, Lost G++-4.1?

Oct 19, 2010

I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and everything went smoothly EXCEPT that g++-4.1 and all its dependencies were uninstalled, and now it's nowhere to be found in Synaptic Package Manager. How can I get g++-4.1 back??

ps. I know that I can download source and build it manually, but there has to be a more "Ubuntu-ish" way of doing it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gimp On Upgrade

Jan 28, 2010

I recently upgraded to koala, but gimp no longer functioned after upgrade; i.e. open file popup dialogue freezes, crop tool is non-functional, preferences dialogue was absolutely a blank box. Tried un-install/re-install thru both the new software center and synaptic. Same broken result every time. Tried a direct download from gimp.org but ran into a lot of dependency stuff I know nothing about; I'm an end user, not a coder. So, how do I get a functioning install of gimp?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04 To 9.10 Lost Share Name

Feb 9, 2010

I upgraded my desktop computer from 8.04 to 9.10 last night.

The second HD, which contains all of my music, used to mount as:

/media/disk/AllMusic

Now it mounts as:

/media/d7c7179f-d775-49ff-889e-661d6d188452/AllMusic

So the music player applications can't find the music, and neither can the other computers on my home network.

Ubuntu won't let me rename it.

How can I fix this and restore this shared drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Grub After XP To Win 7 Upgrade

May 29, 2010

I keep finding the same fixes on the web and they are not working. What I have/what I did: I have a dual boot PC. HD0 was XP. HD1 Kubuntu 10.04. I upgraded XP to Win 7. This jacked my Grub up, now all I can load is Win 7. I don't see the Grub menu anymore. I've been trying to reinstall Grub using varoius web pages like: [URL]

They seem to all be telling me the same thing but not working. I boot into a liveCD. I have to sudo apt-get install grub then I can do sudo grub. I follow the instructions:
sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
I get "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition".

Now if I'm understanding this right the reason for that is. HD0,0 is my first HD first partition (which is Win 7), and grub doesn't like windows. I tried swapping it out so it reads:
sudo grub
> root (hd1,0)
> setup (hd1)
I then quit and reboot. Win 7 loads. I don't see Grub.I am using 2 separate hard drives?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Power During 10.10 Upgrade?

Oct 26, 2010

Was upgrading from 10.4 to 10.10 using the Update Manager. All files downloaded and I think it was about 1/3 of the way through the Installation when I lost power. Now when it boots I have a purple screen with no login box.

Is there a way to restart the upgrade?

Ubuntu Installation :: All Files Lost After Upgrade

Apr 29, 2011

My apt-get was really really slow since the installation of 10.10. Doing downloads at 100~2000 B/s.So,I decided to upgrade the Ubuntu version by the CD, a big mistake by the way.Near end, the installation got crashed and frozen. Over 3 hours on same command line.Then, I hardly rebooted the system to get in the OS, and it works. BUT all data within /etc and /var IS GONE! My whole life was in "/var/www" and "/var/lib/mysql" and that is gone too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multi Boot (5 OS's) Lost 2 Upon 9.10 Upgrade

I lost my FC10 and PCLinuxOS 2007. Ubuntu 9.10 64bit is good, as is XP and Vista. What's the repair procedure? My old menu.lst was this:

Is it just a matter of editing partition numbers, as the old menu.lst?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.04 To 9.10: Lost Network Manager

Jan 16, 2010

This is my fourth on-line upgrade from Gutsy (started with Dapper ...) all the previous one went without a hitch !

So I was pretty confident this afternoon upgrading my Lenovo laptop from 9.04 to 9.10.

At one point during the install, I got error messages and was offer to do a "Partial Install". I accepted, different things happened, rebooted. Update manager came on with again the partial update pop-up. Accepted it again, it downloaded more files, rebooted, partial upgrade window again but it failed immediately.

The network connection was gone, clicking on the network icon I got a message that the network manager is not running.

I cannot check or uncheck the "network unabled" choice.

However, 9.10 is running, slow and weird, but no network connection so I cannot try to finish the "partial upgrade"

Every time I reboot the Update manager pops up.

Trying to boot any previous version in "grub" fails right away saying it is unable to mount the drives ...

Is there a way to start the Network Manager from a terminal ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Sound After Upgrade 10 Mins Ago?

Aug 11, 2011

I've just done an upgrade after noticing the Update manager thingee at the bottom of the screen. I was listening to my music when I noticed it.

I did the Restart now after upgrading. Now I have no sound at all. Checked headphones were turned up which they were. Checked sound settings and found there were no Devices in Hardware and Input and a Dummy Output (stereo) listed in Output. I would have thought that my onboard sound would have shown up as well as the sound bits on my HDMI card - not that I've ever managed to get sound out of my telly via the HDMI cable. (I do have Alsa sound installed).

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Gone Wrong May Have Lost Important Files

Aug 27, 2010

I have had Hardy Heron 8.04 since 2008. Few problems, but when the red arrow indicated updates I clicked on it and it was for an upgrade to 10.04.I decided to upgrade but it didn't go well.I ended up with a black screen and white letters. I didn't know what to do.I don't know many commands.I posted here but got no response.I had no access to the Internet.I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 8.04 from the CD.At one point it asked me about a 10GB partition.I didn't really understand it at that point but clicked ok.When I got the computer running again I noticed that it was a new partition with 7 GB free space.What happened to all my precious other files?

I am panicking because I read a similar thread about a Windows/Ubuntu partition and the person was worried about losing all Windows files.I did back up the files on an external hard drive but not recently. Losing them would mean I had to make up a lot of work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Home After Clean Upgrade?

Oct 25, 2010

I used to use Ubuntu 9.10 for a year. I had my home path on different partition (19Gb) than the system partition (12Gb). Before I upgraded, the free space on Home partition (19Gb) was 6.3Gb. I knew that the direct upgrade is not good, so, I format the system partition (12Gb). Then, I install clean version of Ubuntu 10.04 on it. every thing is great. except that, I can not find my files in the old home path. In same time, Ubuntu is telling me that the Home partition (19Gb) (which I have not touch at all) has free space of 6.3Gb and used space of 11.3Gb. It means it can recognize that there is something but it can not open it at all.

system information:

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
Gnome 2.30.2
2.6.32-25-generic

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Gui In Jaunty/kde3 To Maverick Upgrade?

Jun 14, 2011

I seem to have made a hash of moving a machine from jaunty to maverick. It used the kde3 remix, and pearson's site seems to be bouncing up and down, mostly down, for that at the moment. I've ended up with a machine that is console only. I've tried installing ubuntu-standard, which put a bunch of things on, but still no GUI.

staying with KDE3 would be nice, but I don't have time to mess with it. I find KDE4 painful, and have been put off by the ideological "purity" that caused the gnome split since its inception. I guess that leaves me with Unity. But how do I get the bloody thing up. Heck, xdm & fvwm sounds pretty good right now, too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Encrypted Home After Upgrade?

Jul 28, 2011

I just tried reinstalling ubuntu 11.04 from the live disc, installation went well but afterwards I cannot get access to my home directory which is encrypted and I stupidly forgot to note the mount passphrase. is there anything I can do? where would the mount passphrase be stored from the previous installation and is there any chance of recoving it. Home and the root are on the same drive and the installation did not format the drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Pimlico Tasks List Lost During Upgrade To 11.04

Aug 21, 2011

I was using Pimlico Tasks manager with Ubuntu 10.10 [URL]. Yesterday I did an Ubuntu upgrade and all seemed to go OK, but today when I opened Tasks... my list was all empty! All tasks gathered for many months all lost! How could this happened? Isn't Ubuntu supposed to mantain all configs and personal data? And more important - is there any way I can recover my task list?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Emails , Bookmarks And Pictures After Upgrade To Lucid / Need Back

May 5, 2010

I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) a few days ago (without backing up any data first). At first everything seemed fine but yesterday three things happened:

1. All my emails and address book have disappeared in Thunderbird. When I started Thunderbird, it took me through the wizard and seems to have overwritten my profile with a new one. There is only one profile in the Thunderbird folder and it seems to contain no emails and only a new, blank address book (the small size of the folder backs this up. I searched the hard drive but found no other emails or address book files.

2. My bookmarks have disappeared from Google Chrome. Again, it seems to have created a new, blank bookmark file. The bookmark.bak file is similarly blank and when I search I can find no other bookmark files.

3. The Pictures folder (in the home folder) is now empty; suggesting that ubuntu has either overwritten the Pictures folder with a new blank folder or deleted all the files in it. Again, when I search the hard drive for jpg files, it doesn't find any of the pictures that were in the Pictures folder.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Floppy Light Stays On After Upgrade / What To Do?

Fedora :: F12 & Internal Floppy Drive - Floppy Formatting No Longer Works?

Dec 13, 2009

Is there something weird about the FLOPPY DRIVE on F12? Nothing associated with it works & I can't get an icon for it. Also the FLOPPY FORMATTER no longer works. (mine is an internal drive)- I had some really miner quirks with it in 10 but it worked. I had some workaround launchers that I used until an upgrade semi-fixed it. (It would give a false error that it couldn't run but did. I just ignored it.)

I tried to edit FSTAB to cure a problem of my BACKUP drive showing up twice*** so while I was in there I added the stuff for the floppy & it still doesn't work. If I try to mount it manually, I get the error that /dev/fd0 doesn't exist.I tried to find some info on it & it SEEMS that there MAY be a bug but I'm not sure as the info is a bit confusing as to just what version & such they are talking about. And there was also the problem that all the stuff seemed to be OLD or not related to my problem.I why I quite hacking at my system, is that all my workaround launchers & the formatter say that there are GNOME things missing & they can't run. So I figure that there is something missing or screwy already & that I'd better ask BEFORE I make things worse or actually break something.With the fact that floppies are about gone, it's getting to be not that big of a deal but I still find myself having to use them for repair purposes (albeit, not as much) & it gets to be a bit of a pain to fire up M$ just to do something like this.

*** It appears that the one in FSTAB was the one I needed, so where would the OTHER one be so I can get rid of it? Or at least make it auto mount.

Also am using RHEL 5, I can create the driver floppy, but when I type "mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy" I get error: "mount: mount point /media/floppy does not exist".Can I get the files in a format other than the ext2 floppy image, so that we do not need to use a floppy drive?There is a readme file inside the driver archive & you can use that as a reference.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 Fstab Entries For CD / DVD (and Floppy) Drives Will Not Mount After 11.4 Install Or Upgrade

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot From Cd/usb/floppy?

Sep 21, 2010

My computer doesn't support booting from a cd or a usb stick. I managed to install ubuntu (10.04) by using the utility program that came with the live cd. With it I was able to boot from cd and use the live cd., there still seems to be some leftover files of windows in the hard drive where I installed ubuntu. So my question is, how can I reinstall ubuntu so that it will format the whole drive. Is there perhaps a similar utility program for ubuntu that lets me boot from a live cd or can I do the reinstallation just using the already installed ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Grub To Floppy

Jan 5, 2010

Unfortunately I have to use Win NT 4.0 everyday and in fact I am trying to create a system where I have many versions of NT on one disk. My plan is to store them in Linux and create a shell script to over write the first primarly partition which is ntfs. I am trying to install Xubuntu Koala on a logical partition and NT at the start of the disk. Grub is not loading NT well. I want to just use the NT booter and launch Linux from a floppy.

During the install there is an option to write grub to /dev/fd0 but it won't work for me. I tried both fat and ext2 formatted disks and I made sure they were present during the initial boot for auto mounting. I have verified that the floppy drive actually works.

How to install grub to my floppy.
