Ubuntu Installation :: Server 10.10 64 Hangs On "Configuring Language-pack-en-base"

Apr 15, 2011

I just posted this issue in the server section. I see now that it probably should go here but didn't see a "move" option.

Unless this issue is immediately familiar to someone, my question really is how can I troubleshoot a failed installation attempt?

I built a simple file server. It was running 10.04 with Samba fine for about 6 months. It was a RAID 1 system using LVM and no encryption.

I recently discovered that one of the drives was already failing with a bunch of bad sectors. So, I decided to replace the drives and re-install everything. However, for some reason, it's not finishing the install. It gets to 94% and "Configuring language-pack-en-base" and just hangs. No drive light activity. I've waited hours and it never progresses.

Some details of the server:

Two WD 1.5 TB drives.
Adding encryption this time.
Partitions: boot, root, swap

I have tried several variations. Putting the boot partition in or out of the LVM. Went back to 10.04. Even tried to re-install on the same old hard drives that I'm replacing. All of these variations result in the exact same issue.

The two differences that I can think of are adding encryption and that the motherboard firmware has been updated since the last install.

Ubuntu :: Language-pack-en Failed To Upgrade?

Jan 29, 2010

I am using since from last septmber Ubuntu 8.04 LTS which I keep update through Update Manager on daily basis, I am a beginner with Linux systems. Today Update Manager offered 9 updates but one of them, language-pack-en can't be selected from the list and can't be upgraded. If I try to install it manually from terminal session (sudo apt-get install language-pack-en) I get this message :


fabrizio@fabrizio-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install language-pack-en
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

language-pack-en: Depends: language-pack-en-base (>= 1:8.04+20100117) but 1:8.04+20090105 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

I reinstalled with Synaptic language-pack-en-base and it seems to be updated to last version 8.04+20090105

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Ureadahead - No Pack Files In Folder

Jul 26, 2010

First off I am aware ureadahead isn't in the repos, but thought this forum would fit the best regardless. I installed upstart, then the deb package on packages.ubuntu.com and rebooted. The /var/lib/ureadahead folder exists but there are no .pack files in that folder. I tried running "service ureadahead start" but it said "Service failed to start". Anyone used ureadahead on Debian?

I'm almost done and it is configuring grub-pc. The last line is: Setting up grub-pc (2.98-lubuntu7) ... Then it hangs.

On the web, I find numerous bug reports about my situation, but no work arounds. What do I do?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 To 11.04 - Upgrades Hangs At Configuring Libc6

May 18, 2011

I can not perform the upgrade. Installing upgrades hangs at configuring libc6 xscreensaver and xlockmore must be restarted before upgrading One or more running instances of xscreensaver or xscreensaver have been detected on this system. Because of incompatible library changes, the upgrade of the GNU libc library will leave you unable to authenticate to these programs. You should arrange for these programs to be restarted or stopped before continuing this upgrade, to avoid locking your users out of their current sessions. I've stopped xscreensaver it is the only session running. I will reboot and stop xscreensaver and then run the upgrade.

Server :: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - RAID 1 Base System Installation

Dec 30, 2010

I'm trying to install a box with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server with a typical LAMP system in order to replace my old Ubuntu 8.04 server I have at my school to have a "backup" system and also trying to replace NIS authentication with LDAP. Well I'm getting stuck on the first step: installation of base system. I want to build a RAID-1 system with the two 320GB SATA HD's the machine has, I have a little experience in installing RAID because I installed my old 8.04 server with RAID-1 aswell. I boot my box from an USB stick with Ubuntu 10.04 Server 64bit, the systems boots well, asks me about language, keyboard and so, finds the two NIC cards and the DHCP configuration of one of the card is done.

Then it starts the partitioner. One of the HD's already contains three partitions with an installation of a regional flavour of Ubuntu, the other HD only contains a partition for backups, I don't want to preserve all this stuff, so the first thing I do is to replace the partition tables of both HD's with a new one. This is done without problems. Then I go to the first disk, by example, and create a new partition, the partitioner ask me for the size, I write 0.5 GB (or 500 MB), then I select that it has to be a Primary partition at the beginning of the disk, all goes OK.

Once created I go to the "Use as: " line, type Enter and select the option "Partition for RAID volume", when I hit Enter the error appears: the screen flickers in black for a second or two, then it shows a progress bar "Starting the partitioner..." That always get stuck at 47%!!! Sometimes the partitioner allows me progress a little further (for ex. lets me activate the boot bit of the partition, or it allows me to make another partiton, even once the error didn't appeared until the first partition of the second HD!!) but it always get stuck with the same progress bar at the 47%.

I've tried a lot of things: I downloaded again the ISO and rebuilt the USB, same result. Downloaded the ISO and rebuilt the USB from another computer, same result. Unplugged all the SATA and IDE drives except the two HD's, same result. Built a CD-ROM instead of an USB, same result. Downloaded the 10.10 server ISO (not an LTS), and the USB stick can't boot, is another error, but only to try.

When the error appears, I hit Ctrl+Alt+F2 and get into a root prompt, there I kill two processes: /bin/partman and /lib...don'tremember/init.d/35... and then when I return to the first console the progress bar has gone and the install process asks me at wich step I want to return, I hit "Partition disk" and then the progress bar reappears and Stucks immediately at 47%!!! Is the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server installer wrong?

Ubuntu Installation :: Server Hangs In Finalization Step?

Mar 4, 2010

After configuring and everything is going well, Ubuntu stalled in the "Finishing the installation - Setting users and passwords... 25%" step.I verified the download with md5sum after downloading, and checked the CD after burning. I then checked the CD again when booting the live CD. So a bad disk isn't an issue. At first I tried to do the good old "open the CD tray and close it again" trick because the status light wasn't blinking. But the CD drive wouldn't open. (its a SATA CD/DVD drive) After trouble shooting and thinking about what I could do to get it to move forward in the installation, I unplugged the CD drive and plugged it back in again and it seemed to spin back up and read. However its been another 10 minutes and the server is still hanging.Is their anything you recommend I do? I suppose I can start the process over again but I don't want it to stop again, and I would rather it just finish the install since its 2 seconds away from being done.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade Hangs When Upgrading MySQL Server

May 2, 2010

When this happens you have to open a terminal, get the process id for mysql-server-5 then kill that process. Like this:
ps -A
then from the list of processes that it spits out look at the process id (the number at the beginning of the line) for mysql-server-5.

Now type
sudo kill -9 XXXXX
where XXXXX is the process id for mysql-server, and enter your password. The upgrade process should now resume.

General :: Configure 1000 Base T Ethernet Card To Send At 1000 Base T?

Sep 22, 2009

I have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?

CentOS 5 :: 5.2 Installation Hangs On Server With Large Number Of Drives?

Apr 6, 2009

I am attempting to upgrade a system from 4.7 to 5.2 using a (now) DVD drive attached to the onboard IDE. Originally I had tried using a remote NFS image and a USB stick but I thought maybe there was a problem with the image. I can get up to the point of the installation of selecting the keyboard for the system and then it freezes and never goes any further. It doesn't appear to be a kernel panic since I can still switch between consoles.

I've got an MSI K9NGM2-FID with 14 drives in it. It serves as a file server for our backup server. It's got a secondary 4 port Silicon Image SII 3114 SATA card using the sata_sil module, and an old IDE Promise FastTrak TX2000. Technically I could have 16 drives but the 750W PS is walking the fine line on tripping it's self-breaker with the 14 drives and 7 fans. I would like to NOT have to disconnect all of this to do the upgrade.

I thought maybe that running the install using the "noprobe" option would help so it didn't detect and load the modules for the Silicon Image or the Promise cards and detect all of the drives but it still gets stuck on the step after selecting the keyboard. The installation info console and the dmesg console don't really provide any useful information. The installation console says:

INFO : moving (1) to step welcome
INFO : moving (1) to step language
INFO : moving (1) to step keyboard
INFO : moving (1) to step findrootparts

And the last lines of the dmesg console says:

<6>device-mapper: multipath: version 1.0.5 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath round-robin: version 1.0.0 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath emc: version 0.0.3 loaded

Is there a hidden "debug" option that will turn on a lot of extra logging?

Installed fine but my monitor resolution only displayed 800x600. (highest possible). Thought that since Linux runs on mobile it can very well run on my Old Computer.

Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?
