Ubuntu Installation :: XBMC Install Is Broked / Remove Everything And Start From Scratch?

Jun 15, 2011

I have internet access and a semi-working Ubuntu install via command line / SSH. XBMC has been running fine until I did an update, then the xorg.conf got ##$@ed and I've spent the last 4 hours googling and trying to fix it. I'd love to just reinstall, but I don't have a blank CD or a USB Drive to use. Is there anyways I can just erase everything and start from scratch? AFAIK it's not possible to run the Ubuntu Minimal install from anywhere but a CD-ROM or USB Stick.This PC also has access to a Windows directory so I guess I could use WUBI, but would like to avoid that if possible.

I noticed that every time I logged in my network icon always moved to the middle of the top panel. Getting tired of moving it back every time I decided to remove the panel and start from scratch. But I cannot find the me menu or the shutdown/logoff/switch user menu. So I cannot rebuild the panel the way it was. How can I find these items?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 9.10 To 10.04 Consistently Fails / Install It From Scratch?

Apr 26, 2010

While trying to upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, I consistently get the error:

Failed to fetch http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...e_1.34_all.deb Hash Sum mismatch

I've tried on multiple computers and on virtual box, in all cases using alt-f2 typing 'update-manager -d' and following the instructions from there. I've also tried downloading the link separately but get the same error.

Any ideas? Should I just install it from scratch?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install From Scratch / Package - Grub Failed

Aug 20, 2010

i tried my first linux installation with Fedora distro. using the live 64 usb boot version, everyhing looked fine. BUT i had issues with WINE so by recommendation, i went with Ubuntu and flushed Fedora. So, technicaly, the install works fine, during the process of installing from the live usb 64 bit 10.4 ubuntu. BUT at the end, when installing GRUB, it just simply failed! thats's a shame for me what i can tell you is the following. (thats what i think is my problem, but i need some expert help tho!)

my motherboard is a ASUS, im using 3 HDD 500GB sata2 drive, configured as a RAID in the bios, strip 0. so it presents to the OS one partition of 1.5 TB. Fedora detected it correctly, and was able to install grub on that now, during the Ubuntu install, i can chose to pick up a partition that was not used on my 1.5 TB ( i reduced my partition to 1TB and allowed 500GB to linux). Windows 7 reside on the first partition. on this disk, partition 1 is a 100MB windows bootmanager. partition 2 is windows 7 itself 1TB.

during the install of ubunto, i tell him to create a / partition, using 480GB as the third partition, and i created a 4th partition as a swap for linux. the install process the information, install the DATA on the third partition... BUT grub, can't !!! it failed... it keep looking for a /dev/sda disk... when installing GRUB, i can chose the drop down, for the 1.5TB disk, and when i press OK, he just simply try again to access /dev/sda disk... which is full of course and within a BIOS raid..........

Slackware :: Failed HD...drat \ Reinstall And Start From Scratch?

Feb 19, 2011

The hard drive that I used with Slackware64 has died, so it's time to reinstall and start from scratch.I have been using Slackware64 for over a year now and I enjoyed it...but now with a fresh start, I'm thinking about either going to Slackware64 -Current or going to the 32 bit version.Things I wanted in Slackware64, but couldn't get, were WINE, Skype and VirtualBox. I could have gotten those if I went "MultiLib" but I didn't want to do that, I wanted a pure 64 bit system.If you had to redo your system again, would you stick with your current O/S or would you change it up.

Ubuntu Servers :: Delete ALL Mail Server Settings And Start From Scratch?

Dec 21, 2010

I've kinda gone hopelessly lost on my mail server install and now want to start from scratch, after having wasted 4 days on this.Basically I have a 95% working postfix installation, a probably 100% working dovecot installation, but am not happy with it as a few things aren't working properly, and I don't know what I did!mail to /var/mail/richard NOT /Maildir - being the main oneBut, also the fact that I don't know where I went wrong, and want to understand why everything is now haywire. I am not certain if my security is working on the mail or the logins either.e to achieve is thefollowing:PostfixDovecotVirtual Users - using IMAP with Security, allowed to send mail from their clientVirtual DomainsPostfix AdminWebmail (Roundmail)Anti-Virus and Spam-filteringI started with this guide How to set up a mail server on a GNU / Linux system), which seems very, very good I might add, but it is for Courier, and when I bumbled along with the Dovecot equivalent ... that is where things broke.

Ubuntu :: Create And Install A Keyboard Layout From Scratch?

Jun 18, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could provide resources on creating and installing keyboard layouts from scratch. I am a conlanger(I create languages), and I need to be able to map certain unicode characters to certain keys. I could do this via creating a font, however, It would be easier if I could just switch between layouts which is easier than switching between fonts. Especially, when I am using more than one program at once. I'm sorry because I have never used the Ubuntu forums before and I probably posted this in the wrong forum.

Ubuntu Installation :: Reload Windows Xp From Scratch?

Nov 9, 2010

I want to reload windows xp + Ubuntu from scratch, I have no experience with dual-boot installation soNow we start with a blank 250GB harddrive in my Samsung N310 netbook, and then,Plan 1: partition the whole 250GB harddrive into 2 logical disk, namely drive c: and d:, both of them are NTFS, and then format them ==> install windows xp to Drive C: ==> boot from USB drive and run Ubuntu USB installer, and let the installer do its partition for Linux's EXT3Plan2:partition the whole 250GB harddrive into 3 logical disk, namely drive c:, d: and e:, with drive c: and d: being NTFS while drive e: being EXT3 ==> install windows xp to Drive c: ==> install Ubuntu directly to drive E:

The bottom line here is that 1) there must be 2 logical drives (both are NTFS) for windows xp; 2) I want a EXT3 partition where Ubuntu resides. Can any expert kindly advise me which plan mentioned above is more viable or feasible?

Ubuntu Installation :: Starting From Scratch - Need To Create New Partition

Jan 13, 2010

I was a Jaunty user and then updated to Karmic. Wireless went from being sporadic in Karmic to non-existent after I tried the wrong fixes. I've changed so many settings and tried so many fixes that I don't know which way is up with the wireless. I'd like to start from scratch. If I install from CD, will it just write over my current ubuntu partition? Will the contents of home stay intact or will everything disappear? Do I have to create a new partition?

Debian :: Apt-get Re-install-from-scratch-spare-nothing-no-excuses Option

Mar 14, 2010

In particular, this is with regards to freevo, but it applies to anything that can be obtained through apt-get.

How do i remove it, and re-install it, and start again from scratch? Time and again i do "apt-get delete blah", then "apt-get install blah", only to find it's exactly the same as it was in the first place, and still broken.

Why does this happen? How can i make sure everything is COMPLETELY GONE. I don't care about lost data, i don't care about lost config files, or anything. There is just one aim here - i want it to work again.

Ubuntu :: Xbmc - Won't Install From Usb On Revo Aspire

Mar 16, 2010

I installed the xbmc live linux distro on a revo aspire. It's basically a stripped down version of 9.10. It installed fine the first time, but somehow the OS got corrupted (i'm not entirely sure how) and it didn't have the ability to sleep or shut down without being manually powered off. Now when i use a bootable usb drive that i tested on another laptop, it sees the usb drive but when i select it the computer just boots to the hd instead. Is there a way to force boot off a drive? or has anyone seen something similar to this?
side note: when i try to shut down, the computer drops to cli with the user xbmc-gbr and i can shutdown the computer from there (shutdown -h now).

Debian Configuration :: No Network After Reboot Of Scratch Install Of Jessie

May 2, 2016

I've been using various distros of Linux for over 20 years - but I'm stumped.

Was running Mint. But after taking an update a few weeks ago the network stopped working. After a lot of time and effort decided to give up on Mint and switch distros to Debian 8 Jessie.

But after changing the Network settings from default DHCP to my usual IPV4 static 10.net configuration and rebooting the network will not work.

I have several systems on a LAN behind another Linux system acting as firewall/gateway.

Now, after about 7 hours of mining the Internet, I still can't get basic networking to work:

- Have tried a few combinations, with and without Network Manager and eth0 in interfaces
- /etc/network/interfaces is configured with a static IP and relevant parameters
- ifconfig shows eth0 and the correct information
- netstat -rn shows the basic default route to the gateway
- have tried with IPV6 enabled and disabled; it is not used on my LAN

The box is a desktop system, ASUS Maximum VI Formula mobo with onboard Ethernet, dual GTX 780 cards. Nothing very weird.

It all LOOKS right, but ping can't get off the box "destination unreachable", and no other system on the LAN can ping it.

I'm amazed a basic static IPV4 network setup completely breaks it. This is my main workstation - a dual-boot system where Windows runs fine - so it's not hardware.

EDIT: This has been solved. See the solution post: [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: System Directories On Separate Partitions - Redo All From Scratch

Feb 23, 2010

I have a netbook with limited storage. 8GB internal and a 16GB SD card. Right now I have Ubuntu installed on the 8GB internal storage with a few directories mounted on the 16GB SD card. (/usr and /usr/local). This has worked out fairly well for me as having the entire installation on just the 8GB drive was too limiting. When I tried this I didn't know how big to make the partitions I was mounting in. These partitions are 7.06GB for the root (on internal storage) 2.8GB for /usr/local and another 2.8GB for /usr (both 2.8GB partitions are on the 16GB SD with the extra space being media storage for me). It seems I didn't make these partitions big enough because I can no longer perform updates. I'd like to redo all of this from scratch. how would you recommend I partition this next time around? Do I need individual partitions for the separate mount points that aren't root? Are those the directories I should be mounting on the SD card?

Software :: Can't Install XBMC Missing Gettext-lib

Apr 5, 2011

Let me sketch the problem here, I'm using the CentOS 5.5 distribution to setup ah linux media server with XMBC. To do this I followed the steps on this blog

when I want to execute the bootstrap script i receive following error:

[root@SRV XBMC]# ./bootstrap
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: configure.in: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal --force
autoreconf: configure.in: tracing


If you look closely, you'll see that the third sentence say's that autoreconf is not using gettext. After a long search, I suspect it throws the error because of the fact that my system doesn't contain the gettext-lib package. The problem is I can't find the package anywere... I can't yum it and on the internet I only find the gettext and gettext-devel packages...
