Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Kernel In A Karmic Persistent USB Installation

Jan 30, 2010

I've upgraded the generic kernel of my Xubuntu Karmic AMD64 persistent USB installation with the ubuntustudio realtime kernel ( The thing is that the generic kernel is still loading as default and I don't have the option on the boot menu to choose the new one. I don't know how to edit this Grub2 version (grub-pc 1.97 beta 4).I haven't found a GUI package for this either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista Installation Won't Start After Upgrading From Karmic To Lucid

Apr 30, 2010

My Windows Vista installation won't start after upgrading from Karmic to Lucid. If I select it on GRUB2, it leaves a blinking cursor on screen. And I tried doing the whole test disk thing and the boot info script. This is what my Results.txt file says

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Jaunty To Karmic?

Jun 8, 2011

I have a dedicated server running Ubuntu-server Jaunty. As you know, this OS no longer has security updates. I'm trying to upgrade it to the latest LTS (Lucid) but first thing's first: I'm having trouble upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic.

Here's the problem. I get the following when I try do-release-upgrade:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d
Checking for a new ubuntu release
Done Upgrade tool signature
Done Upgrade tool


force an upgrade to Karmic instead of Lucid? (And no, sadly, re-installing is not an option as this is a server with no direct physical access)

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From FC To Karmic On Triple Boot Mac

Mar 14, 2010

I have a Core 2 Duo iMac that I had set up for triple boot using Fedora Core (probably FC8 )and GRUB, Windows XP Pro, and Mac OS X v10.5. Some time ago, I had to blow out and reinstall my Windows installation because it had developed errors, but this also blew out my GRUB, leaving the Fedora install non-bootable. Since I never really used FC on this machine much, I didn't worry.

Lately, I've acquired an hp Mini 110, on which I'm running Linux Mint 8 (Helena), and I'd like to upgrade my FC partition on the iMac to Karmic, but when I run the installer, it won't let me use all of the existing Linux partition, instead wanting to resize it to accommodate both FC and Ubuntu.

How do I make the installer simply replace FC with Karmic, using the entire existing partition? I'm sure earlier versions of Linux that I've used had a simple "erase all Linux partitions and install" option, and the "Manual" option doesn't appear to read the existing partition information (I was too afraid to go any further).

I ended up quitting the installer, which put me into the Live CD environment, where I used the File Browser to "Format..." the Linux partition, but when I went back to the installer, I ran into the same problem, and it didn't seem to matter if I unmounted the existing partitions or not.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Karmic To Lucid - Error

Jun 18, 2010

Error during commit 'E:Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on mountall' Restoring original system state

Yeah...that's what I get every time I try to upgrade to lucid lynx.

NOTE: I haven't updated for quite some time. I may have gotten one or two updates for karmic but that was it. Just thought it might be important....

NOTE: Also not sure if this is important, but karmic installed and did some funny stuff to itself. My desktop no longer exists. It just isn't there. Also, when I try to turn of my computer it gets all kinds of errors and eventually I have to just pull the plug....something about a dev loop0 right after is says its deactivating swap...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Hardy To Karmic In The Presence Of RAID?

Jan 24, 2010

I really want Python 2.6, which is not part of the standard Hardy packages. I just tried installing the Python 2.6 Linux distro direct from python.org. While I didn't see any error messages during the installation, I'm still defaulting to Python 2.5, and 2.6 installed to a different folder than 2.5.

A secondary wish: I would also like GROMACS 4.0 instead of 3.3. Again, Karmic has it as standard, Hardy doesn't.

I'm running dual hard drives in a software RAID1 configuration. My system is Linux only, so I have no Windoze compatibility issues to worry about.

Still, I've gathered that upgrading in the presence of RAID is different, and more problematic, than a standard upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Internet Connection When Upgrading From Hardy To Karmic

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Rescue When Upgrading From Karmic To Lucid?

I had a nicely working karmic 64bit/windows XP install, but the "upgrade" button to 10.04 has finally got the better of me.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Kernel On A Live-cd?

Mar 15, 2010

I am building a live-cd using live-helper on Karmic (9.10). The process executes fine and I am able to build a live cd of ~200MB in size with minimal and xfce. But things does not work if I try to upgrade the kernel with the one of them from [URL] site. Ubuntu kernel team publishes the kernel for testing and I would like to upgrade the kernel for testing. But when I upgrade the kernel from inside the live-helper's interactive shell, it upgrades fine and iso gets created. While booting, it loads the kernel and errors out with the following message:

(initramfs) mount: mounting aufs on /root failed: No such device.
aufs mount failed.

I am running initramfs after installing the new kernel (a .deb file) using dpkg.

What else should I need to do for getting this to work?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading To Kernel In 10?

Jan 26, 2009

I've never compiled a kernel before and I'm in need of the 2.6.28 kernel (two words: macbook aluminium).

I guess my biggest question is, will this guide work well for F10? I would hate to get half-way through it just to find out that F10 does something different than F08 or F09. Is there anything that you experts can see right away that would possibly be disastrous? If things do come to worse, I can simply select the previous kernel at GRUB boot right?

Or will the Fedora team be releasing the update soon through the package manager? Is there a way I can activate the development version and only get the kernel update?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To 2.6.35 Kernel Which Didn't Work Either?

Aug 26, 2010

Wow -everything works with alpha-3 version with a fresh install. Sound, wireless modem, processor speed scaling, sound controls, touch pad, all cores running,power management, battery, fans, etc. NVidia driver is also working. I tried multiple other distro installs - opensuse, Fedora, and ubuntu 10.04 - none worked. Also tried upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 which didn't work either. also tried upgrading to 2.6.35 kernel which didn't work either.

I'm running a toshiba satellite a505-6030 with an i7 core, nvidia graphics gforce 310M. i didn't have to pass any arguments to grub either . First boot seemed to stall, rebooted machine, and it's been working perfectly since.

Ubuntu Installation :: Compiz Slow In Lucid Kernel - Run Normail In Karmic

Jul 30, 2010

When Lucid released, I upgrade the Karmic in my Thinkpad R61 using


One things that remains until today is that when I'm using latest kernel (right now 2.6.32-24), the compiz run very slow, make the whole desktop unusable. When compiz is killed and using metacity, the desktop is running in normal speed.

Fortunately I still had the Karmic kernel (2.6.31-20) and booting using this kernel, everything run normally.

I just wonder what cause the latest kernel make compiz become slow. Is there any leftover application that I had to uninstall (maybe it's like pulseaudio's problem above), or any missing library/application that I need to install?

Debian Installation :: Upgrading With A Handmade Kernel?

Aug 11, 2010

I have a hand-built kernel in Lenny. It's much smaller and faster than the stock kernel and doesn't need an initrd, but I am not sure how to upgrade it in a way that will be compatible with the new udev package. The recommended procedure is to upgrade the kernel and udev together and then reboot before doing the rest of the upgrade, but obviously I can't do that.

There seem to be two possible procedures I could follow:

1) Upgrade kernel sources and rebuild and install the kernel, then reboot and upgrade udev. But then the new kernel would be booting with the old udev and I don't know if that would work.

2) Upgrade, rebuild and install the kernel, then upgrade udev without rebooting, ignoring the warning messages. Finally reboot into the new kernel.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Default Kernel After Upgrading From 9.xx To 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Jul 21, 2010

after upgrading to lucid lynx ubuntu doesn't boot with the new kernels 2.6.32-22-generic and 2.6.32-23-generic (also in recovery mode). But it's does boot with the previous 2.6.31-21-generic kernel. At the time i was hoping to wait it out, but a new kernel has come and the problem persisted. I've been trying to find a solution for this but somehow, amid lots of failed boot blank black screen threads, i didn't relate to any solution. The boot seems to go well until a pixelated logo appears (before the login screen), then goes to a blank black screen and there it stays stuck with no remedy. Looking into dmesg logs - albeit some differences between 2.6.31-21 and the newer 2.6.32-23 - the failed boot seems proper in both logs. In Xorg logs the differences are bigger but i cannot pinpoint a source for this problem.

Installation :: Run Persistent Ubuntu From USB?

Jan 5, 2010

I am currently running Windows 7 and would like to "play around" with Linux and learn how to use it, but am not willing to entirely "jump ship: as of yet. Thus, I would like to be able to use my USB key (32 gig) that is persistent. I have had no success in being able to get this to work; I went to http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ and attempted several different times and the only one I could get to work was not persistent.

May 28, 2010

I would like to know if I can update a live USB version of 10.04I am, unofficially, running ubuntu 10.04 live USB version from a partition on my 250GB USB HDD at work.All the apps I use are web bassed except for zeacom and groupwise which I run from a virtual machine I created using virtualbox ose, this machine is one the network running AD and novel and also MS office and uniflow printing

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Create Persistent Live Usb Of 11.04

Apr 1, 2011

I have tried to create a persistent live usb thumb drive using Startup Disk Creator, but have not had any luck. I have tried running Startup Disk Creator from Linux Mint 9 xfce (currently installed on my machine) as well as from live sessions of ubuntu 11.04 Beta1 and xubuntu 11.04 Beta1. When using Startup Disk Creator in Linux Mint, I am able to set the slider to choose how much reserved space I want, but when I reboot, the USB stick does not load, I get an error message about an unknown name in the file. When using the live sessions of ubuntu or xubuntu, the section with the slider to choose how much of the usb stick to devote to the persistence file is greyed out. I get the same result whether I choose the xubuntu iso or the ubuntu iso as the source disc image. I have used the same USB stick and Startup Disk Creator to make persistent live installs before - is there something about 11.04 that does not allow persistence?

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Persistent USB Accessible From Windows

Mar 24, 2011

I want to create a combined portable Ubuntu / USB stick.For this I intend to install Ubuntu to my 16 GB USB Drive. I am going to install some rather big programs (Matlab, Maple...) and therefor, I think the 4 GB persistent space in different startup-USB creators are to small.Because of this, I want to install Ubuntu to the USB drive, to get full functionallity. Also because of the small USB Drive size, I dont want to create two different partitions. For USB Drive use, I want to be able to save files larger then 4 GB (ie. not FAT32).

How can I create a fully functional Ubuntu USB, that can also be accessed from Windows? I understand that NTFS and Ubuntu is a bad mix, FAT32 have file size restrictions, and Windows cant accesss ext3/4.I saw someone talk about installing Ubuntu using the 'install in windows' to bypass Ubuntu-NTFS problems, but the link was broken, and I could not see how it was done. Also this [URL] talked about making the home folder accessible, but the linked site is now down.

Debian Installation :: Sd Card Boot Persistent ?

Dec 21, 2010

I was wondering if it can be possible to boot debian from micro sd card and have it persistent. I have checked the bios of my laptop and there are options to boot from USB and HDD (and from floppy, cd, network and hard disk), but not from sd card. Would it be a problem or could there be workarounds. That is of course if the whole thing is a good idea at all.

I have already booted the laptop from USB, but I would like to use it for everyday work and USB sticking out is bound to get snapped off. Sd card on the other hand would go inside in the slot. The hard disk is dead and is a bit expensive to replace (and unnecessary in respect of the volume, I only need a couple of gb for work)

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Persistent Live USB In Fresh Mode?

Nov 14, 2010

I have a persistent pendrive of Ubuntu: [URL]
It has a file where it saves the configuration of my computer: casper-rw

But if I boot this USB flash drive in another computer I would like to do it in a fresh way, that is, without loading the configuration of my computer (saved in the casper-rw file). For example, in Puppy Linux this can be done easily, just putting pfix=ram in a boot option of syslinux.cfg and selecting this option when booting.

I think this is important because I think that otherwise the Ubuntu (at least in some cases) cannot open if used in a computer different to the one where casper-rw was configured. It happens to me that I cannot run Ubuntu with my pendrive when inserted in a different computer (I think the reason is what I've said).
