Ubuntu Installation :: No Bootup After Install But LiveCD Works Great

Feb 10, 2011

No Bootup just a Black Screen with a frozen cursor after install, but LIVE CD works in 1024x768 mode? Well, I have a Sony Bravia 32xTV with HDMI input coming out of a ZOTAC nvidia type of card. The live CD will recognize the HDMI graphics card and Sony TV/monitor and thus works like Ubuntu normally does. But when I go to install to a hard drive and try to boot up I get just a Black Screen with a frozen cursor. I even have another Ubuntu 8.04 version running on the Sony Bravia TV , so no problem with TV end of things. what do I do now, oh great Ubuntu gurus out there in cyberland? what could I possibly do , what do I read, where do I go , what, where, who, how, when ,which way?

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Works But Does Not Install

Nov 14, 2010

If I run Ubuntu 10.4 LIVE from CD everything works fine. However, when I try to install, it hangs up at about 23% (while installing Firefox). I thought my HD had a problem, but the same happened after checking it had no bad sectors and even after replacing it. Same as above using a CD of version 8.4 ( live works, install doesn't complete). Same trying the Alternate in place of the Desktop edition. With the same CD's I already installed successfully on other machines. Booting from USB SHOULD be possible ( according to BIOS settings ) but apparently it doesn't work.

Present machine characteristics :
AMD Athlon 2200+ 1.8 Ghz
512 MB RAM
HD EIDE 40 GB (Master of the Primary channel)
BIOS AMI dated 13-05-2003
Motherboard : no brand
Two EIDE CD drives (as Master and Slave of the Secondary channel).

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid All Works Great - Except Software Center/synaptic

Apr 30, 2010

Using Lucid Lynx 10.04. Is your software center/ synaptic package manager working properly for you?

I just got Lucid installed after some minor troubles last night, but with the help of great people, I have it installed now (thank you!) and it all *ok, most* works beautifully!

However, I have been downloading/installing "Ubuntu restricted extras" , for the last 20 minutes now, and it is only at 12% .

In karmic koala, these things happened pretty quickly, but now it is just soooper slooooowww.

Before I started the restricted extras.. I installed VLC player, and that took about 15 minutes just for that. and now it is nowhere to be found!

It does not show in USC under installed software, nor does it show in synaptic..and it is in no menu, anywhere.

Speaking of synaptic...I cant get VLC, or Ubuntu restricted extras to show up, it does not 'find' them when I type their name into the search bar..it acts as if they don't exist.

I havent attempted to find, or install anything else that I had on my karmic box yet...only these 2 things, vlc and restricted extras....and both have been ..well.....painfully slow..... and vlc doesnt even seem to have installed, after it took 15-20 minutes, and said it was finished.

If this was "back to normal"...this would definitely be the best OS i have ever seen/used.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Works Great -- Except For At Msnbc.com?

Jul 15, 2010

i'm running ubuntu 8.04 with firefox 3.6.6 and the add-on shockwave flash 9.0 r277. my video works great at sites like videos, abcnews.com, and cbsnews.com. but it does not work at msnbc.com. i just get a blank, black panel with the label "msnbc.com video player" at the top.

the problem appears unique to the msnbc.com web site. any idea what it could be? i've used other machines running different versions of ubuntu and ff and have had no problems viewing msnbc.com video.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cheeze Works Great HP 4510s?

Jun 6, 2010

Cheese seems to work great OOB on my HP probook 4510s using the internal webcam and OpenSuSE11.1 (11.2/11.3.6 don't install). Anyway - I would really like to have a simple way to send either the video stream or periodic snapshots out over the internet, either to a website or a chat client or? I am going to be doing a field experiment and will want folks to be able to see what I'm doing. I have set up servers before and it can get way too complicated for the amount of time I have left to get this going..

Networking :: Eth0 Works Great - Eth1 Not Working ?

May 14, 2010

Ok, so eth0 is up and working great. eth1, however, comes up with a link light, however the packet counters in ifconfig remain at 0. Appears that eth1 isn't working.

Here's my setup:

-Dell latitude CPi laptop with 2 PCMCIA network cards and no built-in ethernet.
-Slackware v11
-eth0 is connected inside my router on my 192 network. Static address with good connectivity
-eth1 is connected on the other side of my router in promiscuous mode in order to listen to the traffic coming into my network.

Troubleshooting so far: I have switched the pcmcia cards between slots and regardless of which card is in eth0 or eth1, eth0 works and eth1 does not. I have also switched the card dongle between cards as well as the ethernet cabling between the cards. With any of the combinations eth0 works like a champ but eth1 does not, so I think I've ruled out hardware problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: RTL8187B Works Great In Windows Has Short Range In U?

Jun 3, 2010

I have a Gateway ML6721 laptop that uses a Realtek RTL8187B for wireless comms. I am very new to Ubuntu and Linux. I am trying out linux using a usb stick, 16Gb with a 4Gb persistence. If I stay in the same room as the router there is no problem. If I walk too far, I get disconnected. Works fine in windows throughout the whole house. Is there a setting I can change or do I need to use a different driver?

Debian :: BlueZ 4.60-1 Works Great And After A Week It Segfaults And Won't Start?

Apr 27, 2010

I have been using a ARM device with 512MB ram and flash to send messages via Bluetooth to everyone in the proximity. I am doing this with OpenProximity (Python) and it worked for the last week, it did stop for two times but since I didn't have time to find the cause, I just rebooted it (Windows style ) and it worked again, but suddenly it stopped working again last Saturday. When I did /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart it did not say it failed or something, but when I did /etc/init.d/bluetooth status it said "bluetooth is not running ... failed!". This is what I got in the syslog:

Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Bluetooth daemon 4.60
Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Starting SDP server
Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Starting experimental netlink support
Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Failed to find Bluetooth netlink family
Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Failed to init netlink plugin
Apr 27 13:52:45 debian bluetoothd[31243]: Can't create GN bridge


You'll probably note that the first message is version 4.60 and the second one 4.63, this is because I tried to upgrade, but that did not work completely, but the error above is the same as first before the upgrade.

Don't know if it matters, but I am using Debian Squeeze and the output of uname -a is: Linux debian #1 PREEMPT Fri Dec 18 22:54:28 MST 2009 armv5tel GNU/Linux. Hope someone know how this could happen suddenly, and even better, knows how to fix it

EDIT: Forgot to say, I am using a SENA Parani UD100 Bluetooth USB Adapter which uses the Toshiba Bluetooth stack.

UPDATE: It won't crash until the Bluetooth stick is inserted, so it should be a driver problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu LiveCD Fails But CD Works

Jun 20, 2010

I am able to boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD fine, but the Kubuntu CD fails to boot. Trying to run Kubuntu sends me to a command line and after the first three steps of the install option I am again sent to a command the line. I have burnt and verified several Kubuntu CDs and each time I get this result. I am running Ubuntu, but I would like a fresh install of Kubuntu (I would rather not just install kubuntu-desktop).

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WiFi Internet Works On LiveCD But Not After Install

Nov 15, 2010

I am super new to linux. I have tried a lot of distros but went with OpenSUSE11.3. I have both gnome and kde live cd. Now to the problem, When I put in the live cd and boot - the computer finds the wireless card and lets me connect to the internet. This works on both versions. But after clicking on the install icon the wireless no longer starts and then I cant get it to work. Maybe its something I should be doing. After all I am new to this.

Ubuntu :: Msmtp And Gmail - Can't Send Emails At Bootup But Works After Login?

May 10, 2011

I'm running 11.04 desktop 64 bit and have smartmontools and mdadm set to send automated test emails at bootup (I have a RAID5 setup).I'm using msmtp with a gmail account. When I'm logged in, I can manually send test emails with both smartmontools and mdadm; neither will send me an email at bootup even though they are set to do so. The msmtp log at bootup has a smtp.gmail.com exitcode=EX_NOHOST.why it can't find the smtp server at bootup but has no problem once I'm logged in and test it manually? Is there some dependency that isn't loading in time at bootup???

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Install - No Grub Shown On Bootup

May 4, 2011

Have just installed Ubuntu 11.04, the system is to dual boot with XP.Ubuntu is installed, have been into it and it seems to be working fine. However, when I bootup the computer I get no "Grub!" [Grub is now going to take over the boot process textual alert]. And, once the system gets past that screen, there is no list of Operating Systems to boot choices. Just boots straight into Ubuntu - always.

Solved that by installing 'Startup Manager' (which I knew about from slight previous exposure to Linux) and set the default operating system to Windows XP - this means that now I can't get into Ubuntu.How do I get Grub to show that 'Grub alert'? And how do I get Grub to offer choices of OS to boot in to?

I upgraded my desktop from 9.10 to 10.04 and I have no sound.

When I boot from the 10.04 livecd, sound works fine.

gnome-volume-control does not get loaded into the taskbar, when I run it from the console there is nothing listed under hardware.

I also tried creating a fresh new user account, no sound on that either but gnome-volume-control does get loaded into taskbar but still nothing under hardware.

aplay -l does list sound devices ...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X-Server Works With LiveCD But Not On Installed 9.10

Jan 10, 2010

After a Christmas morning scramble trying to get Sims3 working for the kids, I ended up pulling an Nvidia 6200 AGP card out of a perfectly good Ubuntu box and threw it into the kids' PC. I replaced it in the Ubuntu system with an old Nvidia Geforce 2 Ti AGP. From the start I was unable to get any resolution higher than 800x600 with the GF2. Tried removing xserver-org, reinstalling, reconfiguring, etc. Installed the Nvidia legacy drivers, all no luck. Tried booting with a 9.10 live CD and it works perfectly - various resolutions, refreshes, etc. So, the card is capable. I've checked, rechecked, restored, modified xorg.conf to no success.

I'm at a text login now, startx returns (among other info) the following:
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so: undefined symbol: AllocateScreenPrivateIndex
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available
Fatal server error:
no screens found

Now, I've checked, and nvidia_drv.so is where it's supposed to be (in the drivers directory). What concerns me is the "//" in the directory path string in the (EE) above preceding the driver name - shouldn't this be a "/"? Is the command not able to find the driver correctly? Regardless, at this point my goal is simply to get the system to use whatever process the live cd is using which results in a working GUI. Don't need fancy 3d, etc, just want a working system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Works With LiveCD Session But Not Without It

Jun 30, 2010

I am very new to this and tried searching for this problem in the forums but have not find anything. When I installed ubuntu (formatted HD), the installer gave an error but then seemed to proceed as normal and everything installed (from CD). However, when I boot up from Live CD all my wireless works fine (it detects networks, connects, etc.) When I boot up without the CD it says networking disabled and gives me no other options.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Wireless Works On LiveCD But Not When Installed

May 23, 2010

I've been using Linux for about 2 years now, mostly Ubuntu & derivatives, but I've also tried Fedora, Mandriva, and others. I wanted to give CentOS a try because I'm very interested in going for a Linux+ or similar certification, and so I'm looking to start learning how to configure & maintain Linux servers and so on. I have a friend who's a Linux sysadmin, and he recommended CentOS as a good learning tool.

Anyway, I've only got a wireless connection in my office at home (the actual cable modem is downstairs) so I intentionally chose a wireless adapter that would work with Linux -- it has a Realtek RLT8187 chip, for which there is support built into the kernel, or so I've read. It has worked out of the box in just about every distro I've tried, and indeed it worked OOTB when I tried out the CentOS 5.5 live CD.

However, when I actually installed the CentOS to my hard drive it no longer worked -- I have only a greyed out option for a wired connection (presumably since my motherboard has an ethernet adapter, but there is no connection). Why the wireless would work in the live session but not after install? Is there a firmware file or something I need to track down? I did look on this page, but it doesn't mention anything about RTL8187.

Ubuntu Installation :: X201 Black Screen On Bootup With 10.04 RC (can't Get Intel Xorg Driver To Install)

Apr 27, 2010

Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:

- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode
- I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen
- I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)

I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot After LiveCD Install

Jan 31, 2011

I have Fedora 14 installed on my laptop (Installed with few issues) and I'm trying to install ubuntu on my desktop. I had ubuntu 10.04 installed before on a second (250gb) hard drive (Windows 7 on the other 1TB drive) with a few issues and kinda screwed a few things up trying to upgrade to 10.10. So, I said screw it, and downloaded the live .iso for 10.10 (x64) and burned it to disk. I boot from the live CD and choose the install option to use entire 250Gb disk. I choose my options, including to download updates and install 3rd party software and let the install run its course. Everything seems to be going fine and it asks me to restart. So I say yes, the disk pops out and the screen goes dark... and then nothing happens. The computer's still on but hasn't restarted yet. I hit the del key (Which I use to enter BIOS) and the computer finally restarts. I enter BIOS and tell it to boot from the 250Gb HDD, save and exit. However, it gets stuck at the point where it (It, I assume to be the motherboard) says "Loading Operations System ..." and with a blinking cursor on the line underneath. Nothing happeneds.

I tried again just this morning using the same procedure. I'm once again stuck at the "Loading Operating System .." screen.

EDIT: After poking around a bit more, I remembered I was confronted by a GRUB menu when I booted into Windows 7 HDD. So, I selected Linux from the menu and all seems good. Does anyone know why this is? It's very odd, well at least to me. Why would GRUB be on the windows hard drive? Is this something I should be concerned about?

I never even see a grub screen.I tried Linux Mint 9 with both the 64 bit DVD and the 32 bit CD. Both Mint disks bring up a grub boot screen, but then the screen goes blank just like Ubuntu 10.10. I can hear Mint's "login" sound, but nothing shows up on the screen

Ubuntu Installation :: Livecd Installer Freezes And Parted Crashes / How Can I Install

Dec 27, 2010

I was trying to fix gparted (it was crashing whenever it started) and then when I would type my password in the login screen, the screen would flash back and then the login screen would come back. If I logged in in a terminal and then did startx, it would just show a black screen. I figured it was broken. I made an Ubuntu 10.10 liveCD and booted it up and clicked on the installer thing and then it froze and an error thing popped up saying Parted crashed.

Essentially what I need to do is install Ubuntu without using the partition GUI.Can I try to find a thing that will let me make an empty EXT4 partition and then a thing to let me install Ubuntu to it?

This sounds like a common problem with ATI based graphics and all answers seem to point the "nomodeset" and the "xdriver=vesa" but they dont seem to help.
