Fedora Installation :: F12 -> F14 Post Upgrade - Unable To Get To A GDM Login

Nov 27, 2010

My system is Dell 4300S with 1.4 GHz Pentium processor, recently upgraded to 1 GB RAM,120 GB WDC1200JB hard drive Sony DRU-720A DVD/RW drive, ATT plugandshare wireless adapter with Atheros AR5001X chip, ATI Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF video card, and Actiontec V90, and 56KFlex modem (Agere System Venus). I attempted to use preupgrade to upgrade from Fedora 12 to 14 using wireless connection. It seems, that upgrade finished successfully, except I am not unable to get to a GDM login. I updated SElinux to selinux-policy-3.9.7-10 and selinux-policy-targeted-3.9.7-10, and touch /.autorelabel overnight, I was able to login using GDM once. And that is all. After I boot, after Ctrl+Alt+F4, I can login to terminal.

Fedora Installation :: Post Upgrade Dependency - Yum Broken?

Jan 28, 2011

I recently upgraded to Fedora 14 from F13 using Yum, it worked to my amazement except now yum appears to be broken because of a massive amount of dependency issues. It appears the old F13 packages are still around and yum is unable to get ride of them because their dependency with F14 packages of the same name. I tried yum distro-sync, and I tried yum resolvedep $(package-cleanup --orphans) --skip-broken but to no avail. Package--cleanup--orphans identifies all of the left over F13 packages.

I also can't install or upgrade anything using Yum, does give me a reason except the massive amount of dependency issues with the left over F13 packages. When I use the graphical software update it tells me among other things that Yum and RPM have updates but of course it won't update. I did follow the instructions and used yum update yum before I upgraded to F14, maybe it didn't take? Anyway to resolve this issue other than a clean install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Works Post Upgrade To Lucid

May 28, 2010

When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:


This can be caused by:
* A previous update which didn't complete
* Problems with some of the installed software
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu
if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:


There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled.
if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:


It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
running the suggested line gives the following output:


In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10 Upgrade Failure On IBM X40?

May 31, 2010

Computer won't startup after upgrade from Ubuntu 9 to 10.04 Lucid.

Upgrade performed through Update Manager.

Have repeated this exercise with the same result. (After failed first time, reinstalled v9 successfully. Waited a few weeks then tried updating to v10 again. Same unsuccesful result as last time I tried it.)

Got one error message during upgrade: "Missing resoureces. The Network Manager Applet could not find some required resources. It cannot continue."

Upgrade otherwise appeared to operate smoothly.


When upgrade complete, and on restart, the following happens:

Gets to purple start-up screen fine. The dots tick away for a little while, the hard drive accesses, then goes to blank screen and all stops. Nothing. Keyboard doesn't work. Screen backlit, but no-one's home.

Restart again makes no differnce.

Machine: IBM Thinkpad X40

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 To 11.04 Upgrade Failure

May 2, 2011

I was running Ubuntu 10.10 and I was having issues with graphics card drivers so I decided to try upgrading to Natty using my Internet. The download went fine, the installation went fine (I sat and watched the computer the whole time. When I tried to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 I had the same issue and ended up having to wipe my hard drive and start over from the CD). But right before the installation was finished, the screen went blank except for a tiny text-editing cursor and even the cursor froze. Also, the Caps Lock and the Num Lock lights were flashing in sync rapidly. After a while I forced it to shutdown and then restarted it. GRUB boots, giving me a list and the option to go to a command line, but if I select 2.6.38-8-generic or the recovery mode, it freezes and the lights flash as described above.

In other words, all I can get to is a very basic CLI through GRUB.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 11.04 Failure - No Gui No Tty

Jul 25, 2011

Upgraded from 10.10 on my tower (scratch built, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2GHz, 16 GB RAM, 2x Sapphire Radeon HD6870 1GB) and it seems to have gone very wrong.

At the final post-installation reboot I get BIOS post, a black screen that hangs around alarmingly long, then the Ubuntu splash screen, then another black screen that seems, if anything, even MORE black (don't know how that works, but that's how it looks - it's not OFF but it's VERY black) and a whole lot of nothing going on.

Tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to a TTY session, no go, no reaction. Just my friendly black screen. Tried F2-F6 as well, same deal. Tried Ctrl-Alt-F7 through F12 on spec, also no response. So Control-SysRq-K... and I DO get a response - I get a black screen with a number in []s and SysRQ: SAK. No TTY. Still doesn't like Ctrl-Alt-F1.

No disk thrashing. Nothing but gently whirring fans and my error message.

-UPDATE I take it back, it finally gave me a TTY login.

So. Um. Any guesses what happened to my poor XWindows setup?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade Failure

Feb 13, 2010

I'm running the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 9.10 on an AMD64 dual core platform with all the most recent upgrades installed. After the most recent Kernel upgrade version the computer failed to boot correctly. Extremely slow getting to the desktop and a general failure to preload any programs that I load on boot. I had to uninstall and revert back to the previous Linux headers which solved the problem. If it makes any difference I have the machine setup as an apache2 server along with my standard desktop environment.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 9.10 To 10.04 Total Failure?

May 27, 2010

I ran the upgrade from ubuntu 9.10 yesterday and it's now a mess. Is there something I can do to refloat this ship?

The file download stage seemed to be working OK: I was watching it when it only had three minutes left to go. I went away and came back a few minutes later and the screen had gone black. OK I thought, this must be all part of the plan, so I went away and came back over an hour later: still nothing. I decided, perhaps foolishly, to press the power button and boot it up.

Eek! Now I get the following errors:

mounting none on dev failed: no such device

chroot:cannot execute /etc/apparmor/initramfs: no such file or directory

Then the message Ubuntu 10.04 LTS cruncher tty1 and a login prompt. I can log in OK but don't know what to do next to recover the situation.

Rather alarmingly there is some activity on the system: lots of messages beginning with a number like [22.71309.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Failure After Upgrade To 10.10?

Nov 22, 2010

I was happily running 10.04--- really worked fantastically! Then, I updated all, and upgraded to 10.10 using the upgrade manager in Ubuntu Desktop. Now, when I choose Ubuntu from the boot page, the computer shuts down--- no errors, it just reboots and I get right back to the boot page. I cannot boot into Ubuntu at all, and I am now stuck with Windows 7 once again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Failure On Upgrade To 11.04

May 25, 2011

I'm having a few problems getting my system to boot after upgrading to 11.04.This problem actually first arose when I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 a couple of weeks ago, however I found I was able to boot by loading a selecting a previous kernel version ( was the latest version I could successful boot from) and as I was a bit busy with exams at the time I decided to leave it be temporarily as I at least had a functioning system.I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and then finally to 11.04 today. The original problem persisted on the upgrade to 10.10 however I was at that point still able to boot using the older kernel version. On the restart after the upgrade to 11.04 however, the system now freezes when trying to boot from or previous versions (the splash screen shows and then the system gets stuck on a blank screen with just a cursor visible, but remains responsive to mouse (cursor moves) and keyboard (goes into restart process on Ctrl-Alt-Del)).

I'm at a bit of a loss of what to do and would be massively grateful if anyone had any advice of where to start for a solution. I can access the system using a LiveCD - the output of the boot info script is attached.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failure To Load Following Kernel Upgrade

Feb 6, 2010

I successfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix on an Asus EeePC in a dual boot mode with Windows XP. Because the computer has no CD drive, I used a USB stick to download the files for installation. Twice now, after upgrading to a new kernel (2.6.31-17 and 2.6.31-19 I think), when rebooting after the upgrade and selecting Ubuntu from the operating system menu, I get a message:


along with a notice about limited shell commands being available. The ls command results in:

(loop0) (hd0,3) (hd0,2) (hd0,1)

In trying some of the other commands, I get a message that a linux kernel isn't loaded. The computer still runs Windows fine - or at least as fine as Windows ever runs. I'd like to recover Ubuntu without doing another full installation.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 - Meercat Download Failure

Running 10.04 tried to upgrade to 10.10. Download ran for 6.5 hours then produced a failure message. Download speed varied all over the place from 30 kbps to 170 kbps but usually well below 100. Speedtest shows about 100 kbps in and out. Is there a way to drop back to 10.04 ad run the 10.10 download from scratch? Attempts to run the download now produce index error messages.

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Reinstall Mysql-server After Power Failure During Aptitude Safe-upgrade

Jun 2, 2010

A week or so ago I ran an aptitude safe-upgrade and while it was updating mysql I suffered a power-failure. Now, this never really happens in Holland but of course this once it happened at the worst possible time.

I've tried a lot of different things to get mysql working again, but am running into all kinds of problems. First mysql won't shut off properly (it does startup with the computer but I can't connect to it at all) during an aptitude purge. If I kill the process mysql seems to purge properly, but I guess this is not the case because I wasn't able to install it then.

Things seem to have gone a bit more smoothly this time, however:

snek@snek-server:~$ sudo aptitude install mysql-server
Reading package lists... Done

Fedora Installation :: F14 Upgrade Failure Due To One Package?

May 28, 2011

I,ve tried upgrade from F14 to F15 using preupgrade, but I run into serious problem. Preupgrade downloaded all packages without problem and prompt me to reboot. After reboot installation process went ok. It was upgrading cca 1650 packages. But installation hung around package 1600 (almost on end) with message that openjpeg-devel-1.4-6.fc15.i686 cannot be installed and only option to end installer. After reboot I ended up with "kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)". It is still possible to enter grub menu, where I can choose upgrade to F15, but it fails again on that openjpeg-devel package. When I enter terminal after failure, I can see package is downloaded in preupgrade repo (and after moving somewhere else and running upgrade again it I got message that package is missing). Is there any possibility to skip this package installation or only option is fresh reinstall?

Ubuntu Installation :: Ext3-ext4 Upgrade Massive Failure?

Mar 21, 2010

The laptop I regularly use is out of use after having tried to upgrade from ext3 to ext4, following the instructions that can be found at namely, Step 2: Upgrading to Ext4Well, the first step was done without problems, but when I reached "Mount your filesystem", the problems started:When typingsudo mount -t ext4 /dev/XXXX /mntwhat appears is:UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLYStupid me, I did nothin but jump to the next step:gksu gedit /mnt/etc/fstabWhere I only got a fully white screen with no written text at all, instead of the menu that should have appeared, as can be seen on that webpage.

However, after running Gparted again, it showed the extension as EXT4, not EXT3, so I thought the system had automatically upgraded. Then I proceeded to boot the system, and this is where the massive failure appearedAfter seeing the Ubuntu logo for a while, the system directs me to a blank screen with the message:Mount of filesystem failed.dc5123-ec01-4438-8bd6-cb85bb080f87A maintenance shell will now be started.CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and re-try.root@hihihi-laptop:#So I type CTRL-D:

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Failure During Upgrade To Lynx - Kernel Panic?

May 2, 2010

I learned yesterday that doing a massive upgrade on my system while moving was a BAAAD idea.The upgrade process was going along just fine, it was all downloaded and was actually installing that last time I saw it. I unplugged my laptop to move a bookcase out, and completely forgot to plug it back in. After I got back from moving a load, I found my computer was off. I tried to boot up, and I got an error that kind of freaked me out. It reads as follows:

Code:kernel panic not syncing vfs unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)I'm able to get to grub just fine, and my windows partition loads up just fine, but any of the linux kernels fail similarly when I attempt to load them.I'm sure that I can fix this, I just have no idea how. Probably has something to do with a live cd.
