Ubuntu Installation :: Get Only Boots Into Command Line To Work?

Apr 29, 2011

I did a dist-upgrade this morning, and now every time I boot, it only goes to the command line login prompt.

Attempting to stop and restart gdm does nothing besides make the screen shake for a second, and I've installed all available video drivers from Available Drivers, and the ones from nvidia's website.

I am, however, able to boot into recovery mode and then select failsafe graphics mode, and get into the desktop.

Any ideas how I can get my normal boot to work?

Debian Installation :: 8.0 - Setup Boots GRUB Command Line

May 2, 2015

I wanted to install Debian 8.0 on my second hdd in my UEFI machine, but when I choose UEFI boot from USB, GRUB command line appears, and I cannot boot up the setup. I used Rufus to create the bootable USB stick, using the amd64 kde CD image. I tried several images and I deleted the Linux and Efi partitions from previous installation of Ubuntu . Also I deleted GRUB from the Windows 7 Efi partition.

In the UEFI setup fast boot and secure boot are disabled, and I don't seem to have the option to boot in legacy mode, if I choose the simple USB boot option (without "UEFI" in front) I get "please insert correct boot media, and press any key or reboot". I couldn't manually boot from GRUB command line, because it is showing that all the drives are empty, and if I type "boot" I get "please load the kernel first".

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Server - When Boot It Only Boots To The Server Version And All Get Is Command Line

Apr 1, 2010

I was having so much trouble with ubuntu 8.04 that I deleted off my computer and did a fresh install of 9.10. I downloaded the 64 bit iso from the internet, burned it to a disc and installed it. When it asked if it should be the server version I thought I said no. Now when I boot it only boots to the server version and all I get is command line. Can I get out of this and get my regular ubuntu screen back or did I install the wrong version?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Boots To Command Line

Sep 2, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 via CD and am currently dual booting it with Windows 7. I have a Sony Vaio VPCEA laptop if that matters. After installing Ubuntu, I'm not seeing the GUI when it boots. It will only go to the command line. Worst of all, it's not responding to the "startx" command. That was working last night... not now. Anyway, all I want is the see the GUI on startup. I want to see the splash screen, then the GUI. Very simple. How to do this?

Ubuntu :: Boots To Grub Command-line No GUI

Jan 20, 2010

I used the Wubi installer to install the latest version (available from the website) on my second physical HDD. I rebooted my machine and used the Windows 7 bootloader to launch Ubuntu and it launched a GUI install. I wasn't sure how long it was going to take, so I left for about a half hour and when I returned I was back to my Windows 7 logon screen. Naturally, I assumed the install was a success and I rebooted my machine. When I boot again I get the Windows bootloader and I see my options for Windows 7 (which works properly) or Ubuntu. However, if I select Ubuntu I am brought to a command-line and there is an output at the top of the screen stating "Grub bootloader." At this point do I need to type anything to launch the GUI (I'm assuming Gnome) from this? How should I proceed from this point, reinstall?

Ubuntu :: New Install Boots To Command Line Login

Feb 21, 2011

I decided to dual boot install Ubuntu with my Windows 7. After a lot of hair pulling, i finally managed to boot the live cd environment with "nomodeset". From there i installed ubuntu. When it finished installing, i booted to the new ubuntu install only to be presented with a command line login. If i change the boot line from "quiet splash" to "nomodeset", i can coax ubuntu to boot in low graphics mode. However this is not a permanent fix, and doing so causes a 2 inch offest of the screen on the right hand side. Only the have the missing 2 inches appear on the left side. If from the "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode" message, i select "console login", and type "startx" i just comes out with "X Server Fatal error- No Screens found". I also tried:


But it still didn't help. I'm running out if ideas here, can anyone point me in the right direction?

This is a cd that i got free from Canonical themselves. It's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I have Intel Integrated Graphics.

Ubuntu :: System Boots Into Grub 2 Command Line?

Mar 4, 2011

After installing the 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, I decided to have a new partition and install Windows 7 on it for development purposes. So this is the method I worked with:

Partitioned the hard disk with gparted
Formatted the drive in NTFS
Installed Windows

Booted into Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD and re-installed grub on the MBR Now after restarting the system a grub command line boots up. I was able to boot into ubuntu with the following commands:


find /vmlinuz
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 (or its equivalent)
initrd /initrd

Is there any way how to load up the grub GUI with the options to boot up Ubuntu or Windows 7 respectively?

Ubuntu :: Boots To Command Line After Windows Checkdisk?

Mar 7, 2011

I successfully installed 10.10 dual booting with Win 7.Today I booted into Win7 and Windows insisted on running checkdisk. After about 10 minutes Windows booted. I then rebooted into Ubuntu. Unfortunately Ubuntu only boots into the command line now. Being very new to Linux I don't have any idea how to fix this.

Ubuntu Security :: How To Prevent Grub Command-line Boots

May 18, 2011

The ability to manually boot using the Grub command-line constitutes a big security risk in Linux, IMO.Any OS can be booted in this manner from a PXE-LAN, USB, or CD/DVD drive, circumventing BIOS-imposed boot restrictions. (Once a foreign OS is booted, of course, it can be used to access any part of an unencrypted hard drive.) Placing passwords or locking menu items (in the Grub configuration files) does not prevent a user from booting manually using commands entered at the grub command-line.

As it stands now, when presented with the Grub menu (or after bringing up a hidden Grub menu with the "ESC" key), a user only needs to hit "c" to enter the Grub command-line mode to facilitate any type of bootup whatsoever. (They can then enter manually the Grub commands to boot an OS on any device.) This is extremely insecure and allows any passerby to boot the computer with a few keystrokes and a bootable USB drive. How do I configure Grub so that it will require a password in order to enter the command-line mode (and thereby restrict boot options to the menu, which can then be password protected/locked) ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Python -> Upgrade 9.10 To 10.x From Command Line?

Oct 7, 2010

I had problems with python stuff and so update manager did not work. Also many other problems, PiTiVi was installed but did not start eg... After many trials of this and that I removed python-gtk2 and so also ubuntu desktop. But was unable to get it back. Now I cannot even shut down. While it is not possible to install desktop or anything else, would it be possible to fix this by upgrading the whole system to 10.04 (10.10?)? Would it fix python installation. How could I do it. Some info tells to change sources.list and run apt-get upgrade, but some tell not to do so.

t@t:~$ update-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/update-manager", line 26, in <module>

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 11.04 Failed - No GUI Or Command Line

Apr 29, 2011

Keep getting alert notification box, with close button. But get no response from keyboard or mouse. So I can't get past it. It seems that you do not have the hardware required to run Unity. Please choose Ubuntu Classic at the login screen and you will be using the traditional environment. (Late model Dell, probably less than 2 years old.) But since I can't use the mouse to activate the close button, or use the keyboard (alt + x, or enter), I can't get past that point. Is there some control sequence I can use during boot startup and get to single user mode and modify something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boots To Grub Prompt After Installation Upgrade

Jul 10, 2010

I installed 10.04 clean on the PC.Not other operating system.It booted to Ubuntu fine after the install and all appeared to be working fine.Used the upgrade manager to install the upgrades to the basic system.I had not yet loaded in any non-ubuntu or medibuntu repositories so this was the first, basic upgrade.After the upgrade,I can no longer boot to Ubuntu but boot to a grub prompt instead.I presume this is a recover prompt. How do I "recover" and continue booting to Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Restart The Upgrade From The 'command Line'?

May 25, 2010

I have been running Ubuntu 9.10 for a while now. Today, I ran updates on my computer and also requested the upgrade to 10.04. Unfortunately, a few hours into it my computer hung. I had no choice but to reboot. When I did so the computer started a 10.04 screen and then went to a 'command line' for me to login. I am able to login, however, all i have is the 'command line'. What can i do now? Can I restart the upgrade from the 'command line'?

Ubuntu Installation :: Intermediate Distrution Upgrade / No Longer Boots

Jul 22, 2010

Summary: After intermediate upgrade, Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04 64bit Desktop Edition will "NOW" not run in any Graphics mode on my machine.

General; Ubuntu has been my favorite OS to live on, play and relax. I have to use other OS'es, but I choose Ubuntu as "mine". I can go around it safely and tweak it to my own likings and needs. It has also been a great tool to exchange things between other OS'es.

History: I started with Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.04 64bit Desktop Edition. Last March, I upgraded to Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04beta 64bit Desktop via the Update Manager, using Ubuntu's instructions... as a Beta Tester. I kept up with Updates and everything had been fine.All went well, albiet minor adventures that gave me oportunities for enriched challenges and training. Overall, since the early days of that, my system has been very stable and reliable- Until last Saturday through Yesterday...

Problems: First thing I noticed is that there were some security updates Friday. Saturday when I came up into Ubuntu, it came up in error saying it had to come up in a low graphics mode. I shut down the system and restarted. It came up fine and I thought nothing more of it at the time...

Second, I tried to install Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.04 64bit Server Edition on another drive. My other drives were isolated. Although the install said it was successful, on reboot, it would not boot the system. It would get a purple splash on my screen, then either lockup or go to a text based screen dump. Server Platforms said this was a text based OS and couldn't explain the purple flash or the error... I shelved this project until later and thought nothing more of it.I checked for updates through the weekend (even though there usually isn't any on weekends), and as usual it said everything was up-to-date.

Third, Monday the "Update Manager" said there was too many updates to do at once, that it needed to do a partial update. I selected, but it couldn't complete, because it said that there was conflict on a KDE package that it said it needed to remove, but couldn't because it was in a blacklist. It further said that this could have resulted from a DEV vervion of Ubuntu.

Fourth, I upgraded some packages through the Synaptic Package Manager, to try to reduce the number of packages that the Update Manager was trying to update. All those packages said they updated fine. I then went back to the Update Manager and it still said it needed to do a partial update... but it completed and said it was successful. I noticed that the top of the dialog box was tiltled "Distrubution Upgrade." I noticed that some of the files seemed to be an xorg upgrade... After the update, I had to do other things, so I shut down my system.

That was the last time this machine has been able to start Ubuntu. When Ubuntu tried to startup, it said it had to boot in a low graphics mode, but could not- it blasted the monitor with vertical purple and red lines.I had a copy of the Ubuntu Lucid LTS 10.05 64bit Desktop Edition LiveCD on my other machine. I burned a CD and tried. The only mode I can get to boot from the CD (on my machine) is in a text console- no xwindows system. On starting up an xwindows system will blast the grahics of the monitor, then (sometimes) continue to a monitor test-based screen dump that flashes by until the system locksup.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Upgrade Ssh Command Line Reboot

Nov 13, 2015

I've upgraded a server on our LAN from fully functioning Wheezy to Jessie. All seems fine except remote administering using Putty from my windows workstation when issuing reboot from command line, it goes down and reboots but stops at login prompt asking for username and password and does not come back on the LAN network. This server does not normally have a monitor or keyboard so my ability to remote admin this server in effect is disabled.

If I log on, it will come back on the LAN network. I've checked the logs but can't see any errors. Is it in the configuration of Jessie somewhere or perhaps a Grub issue. I have 5 other production Wheezy servers that I intend to update to Jessie once I understand how to deal with this problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Command-line Interface At Startup?

Feb 4, 2010

So I just partitioned my hard-drive, one side with windows the other to set free for ubuntu. It all worked fine. I put in the liveCD of ubuntu 9.10 and installed on to the partition. However, I have a problem. When it boots up it asks me to either boot into linux 2.6 or windows 7. Windows 7 works fine, but when I boot into ubuntu, the loading screen comes up and then it doesn't seem to boot into GDM. It's all command-line interface. I've tried sudo apt-get update and upgrade, but it isn't connected to my network yet so I can't do that. What can I do?
