Ubuntu Installation :: UNR 9.10 Fresh Install On HP 110-1081tu Netbook - No Wireless
Mar 9, 2010
I just got my self a netbook. I bought the one with linux because I figured that if they sell it with linux, it's probably using h/w which supports linux. I played around with the Mi variant it had pre-installed, but it was a bit limited and slow, so I installed UNR instead.The install went fine, and UNR is really nice to use and feels faster than the Mi too which is great. However, wireless isn't working. It's got a broadcom chipset (BCM4312) which I think needs a proprietary driver, but when I use the Hardware drivers tool, it doesn't have any options to install a driver.
I just installed a fresh Ubuntu over a Vista install on a Compaq 6720s with Wubi.But the wireless doesn't work in Ubuntu. In Vista everything is still fine.I tried two tips from the help program in Ubuntu, but to no avail. I also tried reseting and restarting. Tried the manual swith on the laptop.
I decided to do a fresh install of 10.04LTS on a Dell Latitude D600 Laptopne wordDisaster I have no wireless or WIRED internet connection. After viewing another post I've provided the output of "sudo lshw -C network" command below (I've blocked out my MAC address on purpose). It appears that the lan card is not even being recognized. The card is enabled in bios (I've checked twice). I don't get it, the wireless worked fine before I did a fresh install of 10.04LTS. I can't use wireless because I have the b43 driver firmware issue that I can't resolve unless I get my wired connection working.
I've had so many issues with 11.04 Natty that could not be solved I just fresh installed Ubuntu 10.04 from a USB as my netbook does not have a CD drive. Well, after installing and restarting I have no wireless. I ran iwconfig and I got pan0 no wireless extensions. How do I fix this?lspci says
trying to get wireless usb's to work with a fresh install of Squeeze and I'm having no luck!one is the rt28070 (Linksys) and the other one is a D-Link DWL-132 I'm at my wits end; trying to get this working for a friend and its driving me bananas!!
I just did a fresh install of 11.2 on my Thinkpad (previously running 11.1) and am having trouble with getting wifi to work properly. My wireless will not connect reliably. Sometimes it connects after reboot but then drops and will not reconnect. Below in line 4 of the status query you can see that it says DHCP4 client NOT running.

i just installed debian after about 2 weeks of using ubuntu afterriend suggested switching, and it's not detecting my wireless card in the network settings. i'm new at linux so try to keep it simple if you can please,i read the sticky about this and here's the info it said i should provide
ispci -knn Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge : Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub [8086:2a40] (rev 07) Kernel driver in use: agpgart-intel
I am trying to install both the proprietary drivers for "broadcom B43 wireless driver" and "Broadcom STA wireless" on my netbook but I get this on both "SystemError: installArchives() failed". I am using Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition.
I installed Fedora 14 in my HP laptop (dual boot, with Win7). After reboot, I don't get wireless connection (wired connection is fine). The wireless connection in Win7 is fine. I am just not able to get it in F14.
I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
I upgraded to 10.04, upgrade went fine but now I have lots of problems.My wireless internet is extremely slow, its as if I am on dail up.My Rogers Rocket stick that used to work perfectly is now not connecting to the internet wich is a huge problem for me.Flash player now dont work either and Mozilla thinks its not even installed.I cant change the time and date, it tells me I have to unlock to change the Time but when I click on unlock nothing happens.Who knows what else is not working either.
I am not impressed at all with 10.04, my laptop and Netbook used to work perfectly before the upgrade and now I have tons of problems.What can I do to fix my problems or will a fresh install work better
I have a >5 year old laptop, running Maverick (Ubuntu 10.10) but I need to do a clean install since the video driver is all screwed. The laptop is without USB boot option in BIOS. The CD drive is physically removed.
The HD partitions are /dev/sda1 (ext4) 15gb mounted as / /dev/sda2 (extended) /dev/sda5 (linux-swap) 2gb /deb/sda6 (ext4) 20gb mounted as /home
I have just made a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop which was already running on windows 7. The installation itself was ok, however, after the restart in the end it did not want to load anything. I get just a blank screen. I am not much of a linux expert, so all I could do is start thee computer via a live cd and see what is there. And it looks normal - windows is intact, new linux partitions are there, GRUB is also there. What should I do? Reinstalling everything is not a proper solution...
I have a new 500GB disk, with a partition with Windows XP, one with Windows 7, one for Ubuntu 10.04, one for /Home and one for swap. The systems were installed in that order. But after finishing with the Ubuntu installation, removing the CD from the drive and restarting, GRUB never showed up, and the system went straight to the Windows OS selector; the one prompting to start Windows 7 or an "Earlier version of Windows". So I can't get to Ubuntu, even though it seems it installed just fine.
As a note: just after the installation process ends and it shows the "remove CD" message, it spilled out a list of I/O errors in some sr0 device or something. But I just installed the same Ubuntu on a friend's computer and it showed a similar error list, yet his system works just fine... However, he doesn't have Windows 7, thus no OS selection screen other than GRUB. I didn't want to rush into editing the MBR or re-installing GRUB before I knew I had to do that.
I haven't used Debian in 1 year or so and would like to know if there is any possible way to do a fresh installation of Debian Lenny or Squeeze (either or) and not install Exim? I get to the package selection section of the Debian Installer and I de-select "Desktop Environment" & "Standard System" so nothing is selected and it still be default installs Exim. Is there a way to omit this from the install?
I'm going crazy with the problem I posted on yesterday about Wordpress not working properly on my Ubuntu systems on the LAN. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1501043
After comparing results from phpinfo() with those from my public server, making a few adjustments and still seeing the same results, the biggest thing still to be tested is the Suhosin version of PHP. My public server doesn't have the Suhosin version installed. I can't figure out how to change the PHP to one without Suhosin, but I've seen some mentions of it not being installed by default on a fresh version of 10.04.
Is this true, and if so how can I build a LAMP server without Suhosin?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 from a Live CD today. Everything seemed to go fine, I chose to wipe the entire disk. However, it would only startup once. Now, when I turn on my laptop, all I get is a blank screen.
I had a look at my partitions with GParted on the Live CD and noticed that there was a 1 MiB unallocated space just before it. code...
Recently freshly reinstalled ubuntu 10.04 on a new / blank hard drive and it now crashes on startup. Quick version: I have a nvidia Quadro NVS 295, it gets to the point just after the bios with the flashing dash, seemingly tries to init xserver / gdm then crashes. Keyboard lights go off but the pc stays on, and just sits there with the monitor in power saving mode. Tried in recovery mode, the blue / grey ascii terminal thing pops up for less then a second then the display crashes in the same way.
Swapping with an ATI card borrowed from elsewhere, the new install will boot quite happily. Anyone know how I can get 10.04 to boot with a nvidia quadro NVS 295? Its a bog standard card and my version of 10.04 I upgraded to on my old hard drive works fine. ts a reasonably new dell XPS 64bit pc.
Longer version: I run 3 monitors using a PCI-e x16 NVS 295 and a PCI NVS 295. This worked great under 9.10 and 10.04. Boss gave me a solid state HD so trying to install 10.04 on that. However on my first install attempt the live CD failed to load (same problem as above, gets to init'ing the display and crashes with no output). I removed the second PCI card to run with just the 1 PCI-e x16 nvidia card, this time the live CD worked fine and I could install, but I am stuck on the boot problem. Booted into the system using the ATI card and did an update just incase something may have changes / been fixed but the issue persists.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 from a USB stick but neither the install nor the LiveCD will recognise my Hard Disk Drive. They only recognise the USB stick and report that install cannot proceed without at least 2.6GB freespace (of which of course there isn't on the USB stick).
I've installed Ubuntu on a couple of systems before but this is the most advanced and I'm certainly no expert. It's an ASUS P6X58D-E mobo with two WD600GB SATA3 HDD's setup in RAID1 configuration. It's already running W7Ultimate x64 OK on it's own 150GB partition. Of course I can't even run gparted from the LiveCD to repartition. I suspect the problem is the RAID config, but not sure what to do.
I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 i386 on Asus EeePC S101 (1GB RAM, 32GB SSD). On the first boot of the freshly installed system I get 2 error popups several seconds after the screen goes into black graphical mode:popup 1:
Code: Could not update ICEauthority file /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthority After I close that popup, I immediately get another:
I am new to Ubuntu for the most part, but have done a lot of research on this OS. I just freshly installed version 10.10 32 bit, and the first thing I did was follow this tutorial on installing the drivers for my HIS Radeon HD 6850. I really want to get this drivers working so I can use the 3D effects on this OS.
When I type fglrxinfo I receive:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString) Serial number of failed request: 14 Current serial number in output stream: 14 When I type aticonfig I get:
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected. The proprietary driver was never installed so I know that driver is not interfering. Originally the aticonfig was not found at all but with a little troubleshooting from the link above It seems to work, but obviously not recognize the card. The card works great on my windows 7 setup. If I can't get this working I may just remove Ubuntu all together, but any help would be amazing!
I'm on an HP Pavillion dv1000 laptop. I used a live CD to install Ubuntu 10.10 to an external USB hard drive. The install completed successfully, but after a reboot I am stuck on a black screen with a white cursor. Before that I see nothing but the initial HP startup screen. I am able to run the live CD without problems, and I have been running Ubuntu from a 4GB thumb drive (which I installed on using the same live CD that I used to install on my current external hard drive). I had no problems whatsoever running from the CD or thumb drive, so I can't figure out why the external hard drive would be so different.
I've decided to do a full total fresh install of natty since I've had so many issues with 10.10, how to backup all my terminal commands and my ppa source list as .txt files? Also can I do a fresh install via ethernet cable or should I use the live cd to overwrite my current maverick Ubuntu?
I recently bought an F12 DVD (from a UK supplier) which I took to be a "full distribution". But looking back on the web site it was not described as such. After booting I selected the Replace Existing Linux System option and it listed the installation of 204 packages - much smaller than the 933 packages when I installed F9. The kernel is now FEDORA (126.96.36.199-127.fc12.i686.PAE)
My problem is that I am now faced with a very intimidating terminal. I am sure the installation did not offer a graphical interface. I have tried to get Gnome running by following the Installation Guide :- 1) 7.4.2 Booting into a Graphical Environment I type in -gedit /etc/inittab and I get back --bash: gedit: command not found
2) 15.3 Switching to a Graphical Login I type -yum group install "GNOME Desktop Environment" Response -Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.
3) Again under 15.3 - bullet point 3) Type -/etc/inittab Response --bash: /etc/inittab: permission denied
I have now run out of ideas. I'm sure it is not supposed to be difficult but I don't understand the implications of the command line responses. I really don't want to be condemned to a win dependency.
