Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Natty Fails - Kubuntu - Xubuntu Installed

Apr 29, 2011

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To Natty Fails To Boot (RAID5 Array)

May 20, 2011

My box has a raid5 array (mdadm) with everything in it (/boot and /) but swap that is actually spread across the 4 drives. I had ubuntu 10.10 installed (amd64) with grub1, when I upgraded to natty (11.04) it automatically installed grub2. Well boot fails, it always goes to grub rescue no matter what happens. I've installed and reinstalled grub2, and boot always fails with:

"error: file not found".

In grub rescue I can see that md0 is actually available, an "ls" to (md0)/boot succeeds but the strange thing is that an "ls" to (md0)/boot/grub prints nonsense, as does an "ls" to (md0)/boot/usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/. When I try to load the required modules for boot (linux raid etc) in grub I also always get a "file not found error" (I fsck'd md0, which says everything's fine). I have installed the latest version of grub2 and executed grub-install in all four drives.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Install Of Xubuntu Fails / Encountered This Bug?

Jun 23, 2011

I have tried twice to use Wubi to install Xubuntu on a Windows XP machine. Each time the results were the same:

1) Downloads the required stuff.
2) Does some post-download stuff.
3) Says it needs to reboot to finish the installation.
-------------- here is where it goes bad -------------
4) Reboots back into Windows. There is nothing set to choose Xubuntu (no error messages displayed in prior steps).

Has anyone else encountered this bug?

I am able to boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD fine, but the Kubuntu CD fails to boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: 'migrate' / Upgrade To 11.04 Xubuntu From 10.10?

Apr 16, 2011

I am currently running 10.10 Merekat as 11.04 will use the horrid unity enviroment i am looking into ways to have the next version work how iI want not how cannonical want therefore i ask the following What is the best way to 'migrate' to 11.04 xubuntu from 10.10 ubuntu? Is it just a case of re-pointing the repo's towards xubuntu.org & then removing Gnome?

I know this is probably an odd question but i seriously cannot live with unity as my desktop & just do not want it installed even if i wont use it! If this change is too big then i may move away from ubuntu altogether but as i have used it since warty warthog i am obviously reluctant

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Xubuntu 10.04 From A Slakware Install?

Jun 28, 2010

I am trying to upgrade to Xubuntu 10.04 from a Slakware install. I downloaded the ISO image, burned that to a CD, and then created a floppy with SBM.bin image. The system is an old i386 which has a BIOS that will not boot from CD. I can mount and read the CD under the currently installed Slackware system with no problem. When I boot from the floppy I get a menu that shows the hard drive and the floppy as boot options, but not the CD. The CD drive is an ide on the same controller as the hard drive with the hard drive being master and the CD drive being slave.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Kubuntu For The Wrong Archetecture

Jul 10, 2011

A couple weeks ago I became fed up with using Backtrack5 as a primary OS, as fun as it is, and installed Kubuntu 64-bit for AMD on a laptop with an intel chip. I didn't see an intel iso on Kubuntu's site right away, and I suppose I was too excited to try it to care. I have been having some problems with plugins working correctly, but i'm not even sure this architectural mixup is to blame for that.

To cut to the chase, should I be worried about installing kubuntu that was intended for AMD on a board with an intel chip? I figure i havent really done anything I can't easily redo yet, and if I want to reinstall, i'd like to do it before I cross that bridge!

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu V9.1 Fails To Boot After Fresh Install And Display Anomalies At The Desktop

Mar 22, 2010

The last version a Linux I had was Mandrake v9.1. However, in looking to get the latest/greatest Linux I downloaded Ubuntu and Kubuntu. After installing Kubuntu the system reboots and fails to boot into the OS. After the P.O.S.T all I get a the word "GRUB". There is no response to any keys with the exception of Ctrl-Alt-Del. I am temporarily able to get passed the boot problem if I boot from the CD and choose boot from primary hard menu option. I'm not sure how to fix the boot up problem and could use some advice. However, using the CD to boot up the hard drives installation leads me to my next problem.

While in a desktop session I am unable to drag windows by their title bar. When attempting to drag a window, the desktop becomes covered with parts of the original window spreading all over the screen in multiple directions. It looks like a kaleidoscope or bad acid trip image. I suspect the video anomalies might be configuration related or improper driver. Again guidance would be greatly appreciated here.

I have a good 'ole Matrox MGA Millenium card installed into a P4 1.8ghz system, with 512 MB ram. The hard drive originally had an old install of Mandrake v9.1, but all of the partitions were wiped and I created 3 new partitions:

- /dev/sda1 20GB Bootable/Primary Partition EXT4 (Unbuntu mounted at /)
- /dev/sda2 18GB Primary EXT4 (Kubuntu mounted at /mnt/Ubuntu_dsktop_91)
- /dev/sda3 2GB Swap space

My intent was to install Ubuntu on the 2nd primary partition and be able to switch between them. However, I tried installed Ubuntu on the first partition (reformatted of course) and I encounter the same boot problem and display problem.

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu, Kubuntu & Fedora Not Working?

Jul 10, 2011

I usually use Ubuntu, but installed Xubuntu, Kubuntu and Fedora (xfce). However, none of these three will boot into the desktop! Xubuntu and Fedora-xfce seem to boot, but before it loads the desktop the screen stays black and nothing happends. With Kubuntu, it loads the login screen but every time I try to log in the screen goes black, then it returns to the login screen again. It will just keep doing this until you reboot or shutdown.

I cant see any type of error messages come up and my current install of Ubuntu (11.04) seems unaffected.Does anybody know what is happening here? is it a common bug/problem or something no one has really heard of before? Im just really stumped and cant seem to get anywhere with it,

I am being told I need to upgrade from 8.04 to at least 9.10 on another linux forum. I like KDE 3.5 and I CANNOT STAND KDE 4 I tried it like 3 or 4 times and I cant stand it... I tried that TRITON or whatever it is with 10.04 with kde 3 but it kept messing up like I would go to install updates it would say 83 updates but it only installed 7 anyways I said no to that and went back to 8.04 and I got the /! icon blaring at me saying hey idiot upgrade to 9.10. I mean I am doing fine on 8.04 I mean I got the latest thunderbird and updated pidgin to 2.7 I mean everything is up to date so its like why give it up?
