Ubuntu Installation :: Updated Xubuntu 10.04...Restarted Into Non-GUI Ubuntu 10.04?

Jun 27, 2010

I just installed Xubuntu 10.04 from CD on my old old computer (specs in sig). It was working swell and then I realized Update Manager was asking for updates. I agreed to all except for the CUPS and printer stuff as I haven't configured my pain in the *** Canon network printer yet.Anyway. Updated that. Requested a restart.I restarted.Next time it booted, it booted into command line Ubuntu 10.04, not Xubuntu as I had installed before. Oh and there was no GUI, just command line as I said before.

Since I am pretty noob, it would be quicker for me to make another install than to try to figure out what to do. I reinstalled Xubuntu 10.04 and all is well. During the reinstall, in the partition section, it was confirmed that Ubuntu 10.04 was installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating An Extremely Minimal Version Of Xubuntu Using XFCE - Go With Mini.iso Or The Xubuntu Alternate Install CD ?

Jan 12, 2010

I was thinking of creating an extremely minimal version of Xubuntu using XFCE. I have a Dell Mini 9, a netbook that uses a wireless-g card requiring bcmwl-kernel-source to work.What I would like to do is use either the alternate CD or mini.iso minimal install file to perform a command line install-style installation of the system.So far, what I am thinking (from reading this [url].... article:

HTML Code:

http:[url].....is to start off with these packages to begin with:

slim (if possible with 9.10, unsure if it is still available. in short, i want to use a lightweight display manager)

My opening questions are: Should I go with mini.iso or the Xubuntu Alternate Install CD (or the Ubuntu one)? If so, which one? What additional packages will I need to make the hardware accessible and fully functional? All I can think of so far would be sound (I'd like to stay away from PulseAudio if possible, it wreaks havoc with my computer), my webcam, and the memory card slot, if additional packages are needed for it?What other "core" packages should I include in this list? Should I include Synaptic, or other packages, and why?What do I need to take into consideration, since this is both a directly- and battery-powered computer?

HTML Code:
post regarding a "Ubuntu-Desktop-Minimal"-type system.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Update, Restarted, And Now System's In A Loop?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual boot alongside Windows vista on an HP DV6000 laptop.It's been running smoothly for months. No problems.Today, I was in Ubuntu, and the Update Manager asked me to update (ok) and then said it needed to restart. I hit the restart now button and the system started to shut down, but never fully shut down. It's in a kind of loop, trying to start up, but not going all the way, and then shuts down again.I did a hard reboot but still nothing - the same loop. I don't even see my HP startup screen, nor can I access the BIOS, much less Grub.I put in the Ubuntu startup CD and it tries to read from that at startup, but then fails and returns to the same loop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Usb Flash Disk Cannot Be Updated?

Feb 16, 2010

I just installed ubuntu 9.10 on a 4GB usb stick given the menu item at the top. I selected 512MB for my own user space. then I rebooted, and started updating it. I am getting almost 200 packages by default now that need to be updated.

alas, ubuntu live update now runs out of space while doing the update. this is not because 4GB is too little, but because too little space seems to be dedicated to the root partition.

what is the recommended way to have an up-to-date 9.10 copy now?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot Into Updated Kernel ?

Jul 8, 2010

I recently updated the kernel of lucid from 2.6.32-22 to the ""-23 release through update manager. Now whenever i try to boot the new kernel from GRUB the screen goes black and the computer stops responding with the caps lock and scroll lock lights flashing on the keyboard.

I can still boot into ""-22 fine and keep using ubuntu.

My first thought that the problem was the newer kernel itself so I tried to update to 2.6.33-5 from [url]but the same boot problem exists within this one also.

Because it goes straight into the black screen after GRUB I have no way of telling what has happened without error messages. Would this appear in any log files and if so which ones?

Ubuntu Installation :: Updated Kernel Will Not Boot ?

Nov 28, 2010

I recently upgraded Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.35 on x86/x86_64 from 2.6.35-22 to 2.6.35-23. and my system will not reboot to the upgraded kernel. To reboot I have to force shutdown my Toshiba L-450 laptop and the restart. This brings me to the GRUB screen were I can choose to use the previous 2.6.35-22. Normally do not see the GRUB screen as I am only running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit on this computer. I have tried reinstalling linux-headers-2.6.35-23 and linux-headers-2.6.35-23-generic and got the same result.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Eats Up 100% And Needs To Be Restarted

Jan 27, 2010

I'm on 9.10 and I use huludesktop often to watch my Hulu queue. Every once in a while (and more so lately) the video freeze and the sound stutters. I then find that pulseaudio is taking 100% of a CPU (I have a quad core AMD 64bit machine). Killing pulseaudio causes huludesktop to continue without sound and a new pulseaudio starts up. I have to kill huludesktop and resume playback and then everything's OK, until it happens again.

I have finally successfully triple-booted Snow Leopard, Windows XP, and Ubuntu 10 on an iMac but I have 1 problem: Whenever I am in Ubuntu and select "Restart," it goes to the splash screen and loads 2 of the dots and then freezes and hangs there forever. If I do "Shutdown," it works properly. Note: I am using rEFIt as the triple boot loader. GRUB installed on sda3 with Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Switch From 10.04 To Xubuntu 10.10

Dec 8, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu yesterday and finally got all the settings right so that it would run rather decently on my computer. I have rather limited RAM resource, 192MB to be exact and i would have preferred to have installed Xubuntu from the start, but kept getting errors when using Wubi in Windows XP.

So here i am, with Ubuntu 10.04, wanting to upgrade to Xubuntu 10.10....but not knowing what to do. I'm currently installing the desktop environment for Xubuntu via the Software Manager but I'm not sure if this is what I'm supposed to do..

Ubuntu Installation :: Xubuntu With Only 126mb Ram

May 12, 2011

I am attempting to install Xubuntu via Wubi on an old HP e-Vectra PC. It only has 126mb of ram. Wubi installed successfully but when I get to the part where you finish the installation after you restart I get a black screen after the wubi 11.04 screen. I really don't want to upgrade the ram in this computer If I don't have to due to the difficulty of doing so. Is there any way I can get it to work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Xubuntu To Update

Aug 12, 2011

I just installed xubuntu xfce edition on my netbook cause I got sick of windows7 starter. It's up and running now and I got it to connect to the wireless internet, but I can't upgrade it. When I tried to do it through the upgrade manager, it just says "waiting" after I put in my password and hit the check mark for "apply upgrades". Idk I waited for like 2 & half hours. I first assumed it was downloading the stuff, but it shouldn't have taken that long? Then I logged out and logged back in and tried to do it through the terminal, but that didn't work either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Jaunty 9.04 Updated And Now Firefox Died

Feb 8, 2010

I have Jaunty 9.04 and I was sitting online yesterday and the update manager came up. I let it do its thing as usual, but it seemed to have an issue with some firefox related package (having to do with branding?) and then the little flipping-out icon showed up in my tray saying that a package broke. It did not, and the firefox launcher turned into a missing puzzle brick and clicking it causes a small window to come up with the following message:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
Location: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul
Line Number 31, Column 1:<window id="main-window"
So I might have tried to uninstall firefox from synaptic or something, but this just created more errors and I don't think it worked properly anyway. Inside Synaptic, there is one listed as a "broken" package in the broken filter. It is something to do with Firefox Branding AMD64 and all that goodness.

Ubuntu Installation :: Updated And Grub - Load Kernel First

Mar 25, 2010

So I have been using Ubuntu for the past couple of months using Wubi, mainly because my parent's are afraid that I'll screw something up on the computer if I partition the hard drive and stuff like that. And Today I installed the latest updates for 9.10, asked me to restart the computer, and now whenever I try to boot using the latest kernel GRUB keeps telling me to "Load kernel first". The funny thing is that I can boot with the older kernel fine, But I would really like to get the lates updates, which I can't using the older kernel.

Ubuntu Installation :: Updated To 10.04 And Now Monitor Frequency Is Out Of Range

May 1, 2010

I just updated my Wubi install of 9.10 to 10.04 last night. Everything went well until it required me to reboot the computer. I rebooted, loaded Ubuntu from the startup list, and then the screen went blank and I got "H.V. frequency over range" on the monitor.

I can load the GRUB options, but recovery mode using the most recent kernel does not work. I am entirely unexperienced with using the terminal and command prompt options.

Here's what I have attempted so far:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg this did not do anything, the command was not recognized

$sudo nano xorg.config I don't even know what to do when I get to this screen

and I am about to try $ sudo displayconfig-gtk

I have an ATI Radeon 9100 IGP card
