Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 8.04LTS 10.04.1LTS , Now I Can't Boot.

Aug 28, 2010

I just upgraded my server, and now I am stuck at "Kernel panic- not synching: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" I have read other suggestions about booting to previous kernels to reinstall latest kernel, but that doesn't work since I can't boot to any kernel. How can I fix this with the restore cd or from grub2 command line. Reinstalling is not an option as I have lots of configurations that I don't want to lose.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS?

Nov 1, 2010

I initiated the on-line upgrade from 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS. When the upgrade finished and restarted the computer, I got the following messages:

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/32a1eb0a-c9a4-4867-ac4d-5fbb2acafa76 does not exist. opping to a shell! BusyBox v1.13.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1 ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)

It leaves me at that initramfs prompt.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Rescue Error During 10.04LTS To 10.10 Upgrade + USB Won't Boot

Apr 9, 2011

I attempted to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10. Upon restarting, I was presented this message:


error: the symbol 'grub_xputs' not found.
grub rescue>

I poked around the forums and found several posts that would probably be helpful but... I am unable to boot from a USB nor can I burn a Live CD as my other computer is a netbook. I made USB first boot in BIOS, but no luck.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1LTS Freezes In Pentium Dual Core Laptop?

May 6, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu10.04.1LTS in my Desktop amd64 computer. I also downloaded the same version for i386 processors and tried to install the OS for my HCL Pentium Dual Core T4300 @2.1Ghz 4GB RAM laptop, details of which are given in the following two screenshots: dscf0105.jpg and dscf0106.jpg I already have Debian Lenny 5.0.4 installed on the laptop dscf0104.jpg and the laptop works fine when I run the Debian OS or Knoppix liveCD image stored in the HDD of the laptop. We all know that the Ubuntu LTS live CD leads to the following option: Screenshot.jpg However, in my laptop the operation freezes before we can reach the above option. The screenshot explains the situation: dscf0107.jpg I know I could always use one of the alternate downloads and install the OS from it. But my point of contention is: where is the matter going wrong? Can't we use the graphical installer CD to do a CUI installation?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - 8.04LTS And 10.04LTS Have A Pre-installed NIC Driver That Is Not Compatible With The Bcm5705?

May 7, 2010

I attempted a distribution upgrade from 8.04LTS (32 bit) to 10.04LTS (32 bit). Once converted, I had no wireless or wired internet, along with numerous other bugs. After relentless hours of trying to resolve the problems, I converted back to 8.04LTS and installed the b43 drivers; I have wireless, however, still no wired connection. I've provided the outputs of the "sudo lshw -C network" terminal command below both before conversion to 10.04 and after reversion back to 8.04LTS. You'll notice that the NIC is not even listed after reversion (this is the same output that 10.04LTS gave me as well).

1.) Does anyone know if the terminal command will identify the NIC if the NIC Driver (assuming it's tg3) is not installed?

2.) Does 8.04LTS and 10.04LTS have a pre-installed NIC driver that is not compatible with the bcm5705?

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor / Video Corrupted After Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS

May 30, 2010

I've recently upgraded from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS. About 90% of the time after boot-up, my mouse cursor seems to be corrupted; I can vaguely see the arrow (or part of it anyway) underneath some squiggly lines. The application KeePassX is affected too; there are some display corruption issues. Sometimes (maybe 1 boot in 10) the mouse cursor looks fine. I have a Radeon 9200 and have looked in the Forum for similar problems but they don't quite match up to mine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded 9.10 To 10.04 Now Cannot Boot

May 27, 2010

I upgraded 9.10 to 10.04 and now it won't boot. The way 9.10 used to boot was after turning on the computer it would go through the bios screen and then a screen would come up and list both operating systems, Windows Xp and Ubuntu. XP would be highlighted and would normally boot if I did not change the highlighted area. If I changed the highlighted area to Ubuntu it would boot into Ubuntu 9.10. Now after doing the upgrade, it gets to the same screen with the two operating systems listed.

When I change the highlighted to Ubuntu an error message is briefly displayed and then it goes back to the screen that lists both operating systems. I think the error message says something like couldn't find Ubuntu, or something similiar to that. Windows XP runs fine when I highlight Windows XP in that first screen, but I want to be able to run Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu on a secondary drive, but shouldn't it have rewritten the upgraded files on that same drive that had 9.10 on it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded To 10.04 LTS, Now Won't Boot?

So I was on 8.04, and I decided to hit the upgrade button on the gui to upgrade to 10.04. Well the upgrade went fine and all...until I rebooted. Now I get this

Starting up .

I found some other posts and tried adding the rootdelay=35 and acpi=off but those did not fix it. This is a virtual machine running on VMWare ESXi 4.1.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 10.10 To 11.04 And Now Can't Boot?

May 17, 2011

I upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 via the update manager and somehow in the middle of it, the package failed. And so I carried on using the ubuntu, rebooted and now the disk is not ready and cannot mount. Press S to skip or M for manual recovery. Skip does nothing, only can use manual recovery.I tried everything from the ubuntu forums & google from other people who had the same problem. The problem is my root terminal on manual recovery doesn't have networking.Only can use liveCD which I still can't connect to the internet because I use wlan0 from ndiswrapper.

I am a dual booter of Ubuntu 10.10 on one partition and Windows XP on other. I edited the grub to boot those. One HDD is partitioned into 2 drives so one partition holds XP and the other partition is a "translator" that holds files which both ubuntu and XP can access. (don't ask me why, I cleaned the dust off my PC recently after 3 years )My outputs are:


title LINUX - Ubuntu 10.10 - kernel 2.6.35-28-generic
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-28-generic root=UUID=85de06c5-cf3e-46b8-8c14-2c217be8dd9d ro vga=0x317 splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.35-28-generic[code]....

- I commented the UUIDs, that doesn't work.

- I tried remounting it, no effect.

- I fsck'ed it, no effect.

- I booted using LiveCD but cannot connect to the internet due to wireless.

- Cannot apt-get update & upgrade due to no internet.

That's all I remember cos I basically tried alot different ways and cannot get it to boot.I am thinking of formatting the mess and start all over again but I don't really want to do that because it is a good system, just that the grub file and fstab is kinda cluttered.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded 10.04 To 10.10, Unable To Boot Normally?

Oct 10, 2010

I had upgraded Ubuntu 10.04 (which had worked fine) to 10.10 and now if I try to boot normally, I see the "Ubuntu 10.10" text and startup meter... thing for only about a second, then it becomes a pure purple screen and all disk activity stops. I can still boot through Recovery mode with a failsafe X session and Windows (my other OS) can still boot. Along with that my desktop wallpaper is completely white. My PC is an Acer Aspire 4530-6823 with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 QL-62 dual-core processor clocked at 2GHz, a NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G and has a dual-boot between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 set up

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded 9.04 To 9.10 Now How To Remove 9.04 And Dual-boot

Jan 16, 2010

I have both 9.04 & 9.10 installed & running with a dual-boot...now I want to remove 9.04 and go to a single-boot of 9.10...how do I do this? I want to reclaim my disk space from the old OS as well...to make matters alittle messier, 9.10 was installed first...then after encountering trouble I installed 9.04 to see if it solved my problem...when I figured out how to solve problem it worked same on both releases...so I now want to remove 9.04 and stay with 9.10...but I don't want the uninstall of 9.04 to impact the 9.10 install...I would also like to adjust the partitions so that I can use all of the disk for 9.10 (including that which was used for 9.04 and it's swap file)..

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded To 10.4 Now Get Get Keyring Password Box At Boot?

May 9, 2010

For some reason after upgrading from 9.10 to 10.4 I now at boot get the password box for unlocking the keyring. It does not seem to make any difference to the computer if I put the correct password in, junk or just cancel. Everything still works as it did before. So how do I turn it off, it's not doing anything from what I can see.

Debian Installation :: Upgraded To Jessie 8.2 Now Boot Hangs

Dec 4, 2015

I had Debian 7.9 up and running like a charm until yesterday. Today I did the upgrade to 8.2, now boot hangs. I see 3 boot entries for the new kernel now -

Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (sysvinit)
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (recovery mode)

The latter 2 entries have no problem booting up. So do the previous kernel( entries. Only the first one hangs, for which I see these 6 lines on the console:

[ 0.214704] pnp 00:04: can't evaluate _CRS: 12298
Loading, please wait...
fsck from util-linux 2.25.2
/dev/mapper/myhost-root: clean, 198627/61000000 files, 2160052/24412 blocks
[ 0.047141] kvm: disabled by bios
[ 0.000985] kvm: disabled by bios

How can I make it boot up like others?

Ubuntu :: MBR Partition Table Changed With 10.04.1LTS Install?

Jan 13, 2011

I have never seen this before wit any previous versions of ubuntu - wondering if anyone else has seen it or can explain it. The break down of the partition table is being viewed with Ranish Partition v2.43 It's old program, but it has been really handy.

What is happening is: Prior to the install of ubuntu on the 3rd Primary partition, you'll see that the 4th partition (which has a couple of logical partitions in it) starts at: (14,380 - 0 - 1) ===> Cylinder - Head - Sector After the installation of Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS it shows a Non-conventional start point of: (14,380 - 0 - 62) =====> Cylinder - Head - Sector. An unused is left between the 3rd and 4th Primary partition.

This is not a big deal - just unusual (IMO) With the same partition layout (pre install) It doesn't matter if I install ubuntu on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd primary partition. The 4th one ALWAYS gets changed this way.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04LTS - Errors After It Ejects The CD?

May 3, 2010

I just purchased a HP G2-144DX.

Ubuntu 10.04 installed like a charm (I only need to find out why the headphones work but the main speakers do not), but at the end when the procedure ejected the CD, I immediately got:

I/O Error on Device sr0

repeated over and over for a couple dozen blocks.

I did a hard reset and the system is acting normally, but I'm wondering if other people have had the same problems?

Also, when running glxgears, is a score of 3000 normal for the Intel GMA HD video chipset?

Ubuntu Installation :: Double Failure With Installing 10.04LTS?

Apr 30, 2010

I have somewhat managed to fix the laptop, x100e, by not being on battery and installing the ATI driver. But then the wireless doesn't work, nor do the drivers I had working with 9.10 (RT8192SE). So, that's scrapped. A laptop without wireless is pretty useless.Workstation does a complete lockup on login aswell. HasNvidia 9300 onboard card. But at this point, I don't want to find out what else is waiting when I fix that.I was really expect a rock solid release since it was going to be LTS. But at the moment it's pretty useless to download and I have been using Ubuntu since 7.xx series.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 10.04LTS On IBM X3650 Server?

May 27, 2010

I am having trouble installing Ubuntu Server 10.04LTS on an IBM x3650 server (Model 7945 K2G). The install CD cannot find the drives, so I cannot continue with the installation. Manually selecting mptsas as the storage driver doesn't work either.I have tried various permutations:

1. 64 / 32 bit Ubuntu Server

2. Using weBIOS to configure a RAID0 redundant virtual drive or not

3. Loading BIOS defaults or messing with most of the related settings

This particular server makes use of the ServeRAID M1015 controller (based on an LSI SAS2008 device).

Ubuntu Installation :: Usb-installer Missing In 10.04LTS Release?

I just bought a USB Hard Drive to install ubuntu to show friends. I was able to boot the Live CD but I noticed the option to install to USB was missing. I believe I last saw this in 8.10. So, I went searching the forums for solutions but all I found was the Windows Executable "usb-installer.exe" . So, I try to look for this, its not there. Does anyone know what I need to do to do this? I'm going to be using this as a portable install across lots of different computers, Does this make a difference?
