I've bought new PC, and installed win 7 first. Then i've resized my disc and left the half of it unallocated for my ubuntu. But the ubuntu installer doesnt see my hard disk. when i run fdisc -l, the only thing that i see is my usb from wich i'm booting. I know that this is a common problem, searched for help on the web for hours and nothing worked.
I am having a problem installing Fedora from a CD.When I put the installation CD into the drive and restart the computer, the computer does not recognize the CD and boots automatically into my old version (version 8) of Fedora.I have already made sure that the CD drive comes before the HDD drive in my BIOS settings, and I have already tried using different CDs.
Got kernel panic when upgradeing from 9.04 to 9.10... Have a tough time with this sparc server. On newer disto it doesnt regognize the cdrom in installation what will result in no install. I tried all trix I found on internet about this issue but none of them did it for me. So I went back in versions. When I come to 7.10 gutsy everything seems to work, so now everything is up and running.
But now I want it back on version 9.04. Last time (a year ago) I did the same thing, and just do-release-update to current version. Now that doesnt work. Maybe becourse I need some updates to gutsy, and the gutsy repositorys is not available anywere. how I can pass this upgrade to 8.04? I set the APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated true; to pass this far...
I recently installed ubuntu 10 on my Compaq mini 730ej. I installed it using the wubi software. Although it works fine with regular lAN connection, it doesn't recognize any wireless networks - when I click the icon I see a "missing firmware" massage. Now - I am a linux newbie, so be gentle, but I would very much like to solve this problem since.So what can I do?
I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Graphics card that Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't seem to recognize no matter what I do. Knowing that its an older card and that ATI stopped support for it a while ago, I was wondering if anyone knows if I would have better luck on Ubuntu 8.04. I can't get 3d or opengl to work, or install the correct ATI Driver.
First time this has happened. I installed Fedora first (XP already installed) and then installed Ubuntu 9.10 64. Fedora doesn't show up on boot up menu. I've tried update-grub. Before I would have just edited menu.lst, but now?? I dunno. edit; Here's fdisk with Fedora on sda6
I have been upgrading from 9.04 to 10.04. Now, I want to install 10.10 from the beginning without losing the data in my current partitions but when I run the Maverick installer it recognize my disk as a whole with no partitions. From another posts, I suspect that the problem is in the partition list because it seems to be a duplicate partition but don't know how to fix it. This is the fdisk output:
Code: jgarcia@jgarcia-laptop:~$ sudo fdisk -lu /dev/sda Disco /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 30401 cilindros, 488397168 sectores en total Unidades = sectores de 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
I recently have installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Netbook Edition in my personal netbook. The thing is that I had installed Windows 7 in the hard disk drive so I decided to install Ubuntu alongside with it. After the process of installation everything was cool but I hadn't the Grub working. I then pressed the Shift button during the booting process so I got the Grub menu but it didn't show the Windows 7 partition. The Windows installation was not erased because its file system is present in Nautilus. I have tried reinstalling the Grub a thousand times but nothing changes. I have attached the results of the boot info script so you can have some info about my booting configuration.
I have both pigeon and empathy working on my laptop, and can chat in both, but i have been wanting to activate my video for both, but apparently it doesn't recognize my webcam. It seems strange as i have skype working perfectly on my system, and can use the video option in it without any problem, so it cant be that my webcam isnt recognized. does anyone know how i can get my webcam working in either or both of these instant messengering services.
I have /dev/sda with Squeeze and Win 7 on it, and /dev/sdb with Squeeze. I've managed to get Grub 2 to boot from /dev/sdb1, but only by disabling /dev/sda from being a boot option in the BIOS. When it is available to boot, and lower priority than /dev/sdb, grub does not recognize the UUIds of the disks. So, I've disabled it for now and can boot from /dev/sdb no problems. Trouble is I cannot get Win7 to boot. Grub prints:
error: no such device: f0903a3a903a081c error: invalid signature
When I boot into Squeeze and run 'blkid' I can see that:
I upgraded F14 to F15; However, F15 no longer recognizes my 3 sata disks connected through Marvell controller. The controller is an integrated Marvell chipset 88SE6480. The controller has its own manufacturer driver but it was intended for RHEL 5.4 (mv64xx) and installation of this driver fails to generate mv64xx driver.
I am also wanting to install on a laptop which is about 2 years old. I get the error message "ntldr is missing" when it boots up and doesnt recognise the disc even though it is set to boot from cd first!
I have installed Macbuntu theme recently and it changed my ubuntu look to snow leopard including the global menu. I used Mac4lin earlier and was satisfied with that. But this macbuntu theme changes the entire look more like mac and it comes bundled with global menu.
See my current desktop environment:
(I've recently uninstalled Docky and installed Cairo Dock instead.)
Now, there's only one thing that Macbuntu is missing. That's the splash screen. By default, you see the ubuntu logo during bootup and shutdown. But mac4lin changes it to a gray background with an apple logo on it; which is awesome. But macbuntu doesn't come with this.
I've gone through mac4lin files. Inside its plymouth folder, there is a folder named "Mac-Bootup" which contains "mac-bootup.plymouth," "mac-booktup.script" and several images (dots, apple logo, etc).
Now the question is, how do I install this plymouth from terminal? I will have to install mac4lin first to get the splash screen, then uninstall it and reinstall the current macbuntu. Which is a long mess as you can see.
I have an acer aspireone aod250, i putted an external cdrom and downloaded the ubuntu, tried to install it but it didn't recognize the hdd... i though it was the cd, i downloaded ubuntu netbook edition, it did the same. i thought maybe i could try another operative, i downloaded linux mint 9, did the same thing. then ordered a cd from ubuntu.com, got in today, and it doesn't recognize my hdd. btw, the hdd is a seagate momentus 5400.6 with 160gb. i already ran ubuntu with the cd rom and starts the instalation, but when it arrives to the partitioning part of the instalation, it doesn't detect my hdd. but the bios in the pc detects it.
I've bought a HP Photosmart printer, HP Photosmart wireless e-All-in-One printer - B110a and i've got a problem installing it properly. I'm using Debian 6.0 Squeeze. When i connect the printer, Debian doesn't recognize my printer as the Photosmart B109 printer for unknown reason. When i go to the site of HP and search for a driver, it directs me to this site:I've downloaded that latest hplip file as a .run file and installed it. My printer is recognized proparly, but when i try to print a colored image, it comes out black/white. Something is not crrect. Does anyone recognize this problem with this type HP printer?
just installed ubuntu but it doesn't recognise my wireless card. I'm running an emachines g720. Ive tried looking through some previous posts but the terminal thing frightens me to death really.I've tried looking through the idiots guide but i'm afraid i'm a better idiot than that.
I have a dual boot installation of ubuntu and windows vista. After upgrading to Karmic I haven't been able to access to the CD drive. How can I use it? The following error message is displayed when I click on Places --> cdrom0:"mount: special device /dev/scd0 does not exist"I am about reinstalling the whole OS, but for that I need the CD
No media player recognizes my Philips MP3 Player as such, I've put all my hopes into Rhythmbox, it seems to be the most likely one to work. Anyway, I have created the empty .is_audio_player file but still the player does not show up in RB. I can access the player just fine through Nautilus, and syncing it actually worked for a while, but now for some reason it has stopped.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on my MSI-16362 laptop and it doesn't recognize my built-in webcam. last time I used Ubuntu (9.04 I think) it recognized the LT webcam w/o any problem. Does someone has any idea how to fix it?
I have an Ubuntu 10.04 installation that I have been using for about a month. However, just recently, at random times for about 5 seconds I can't use my mouse or keyboard.When it does that, the computer isn't frozen, I just can't type.About 5 seconds later, all the text that I was trying to type suddenly appears. I have 4GB or RAM, and even when I barely have any programs running and at 0% of resource usage, the problem still persists. This has just been happening for the past day or so.
I typed in a text file (Feb.txt) at work using the basic Microsoft Notepad text editor and emailed it home. When I tried to open it from the email using the default gedit I got an error message - Could not open the file /tmp/Feb.txt gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding. check that you are not trying to open a binary file. Select a character encoding from the menu and try again.The character encoding is set to 'automatically detected'.
How come it can't detect the encoding? I had to manually set the encoding to Western(ISO 8599-15) to load it. I can't remember this happening in the past, and it was OK loading one I sent earlier (Jan.txt) which presumably had the same encoding, as it was written in the same way.
I recently upgraded from karmic to lucid. I am currently having a problem trying to get ubuntu to recognize my LG slim External DVD drive. It was recognized fine in Karmic, but for some reason doesnt work now in Lucid. The device does work as i have tried it on other computers.
