Ubuntu Installation :: Apt-get Refuses To Install Dependencies?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 and am trying to change my bootscreen so I installed StartUp-Manager and then I tried to install usplash, but I get this error which makes me slightly confused:

sudo apt-get install usplash
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Previously apt-get has been happy to install dependencies. I'm new to Linux so if you need any more information just shout and I'll edit that in.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Refuses To Install On Partition

Jan 29, 2010

I have messed up my partitions really bad and grub refuses to install. Here's how it looks:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 2432 19430617+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 2433 60801 468848992+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 2433 2930 4000153+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6 2931 53535 406484631 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 53536 60801 58364113+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

Initially there was only Linux (Karmic) on this hdd, on what is now sda2 to sda6, current sda2 being the boot partition. Now, I decided to install Windows XP and using GParted I created an NTFS partition at the end, sda7. But it wanted to have his loader on the first one, so (now this is probably stupid what I did) I cut 100MB from Linux root and put it as NTFS at the beginning, making it sda1, boot and letting windows install it's loader there. I figured I can just reinstall grub on it later (think I have missed some tutorials). As you can probably guess, it won't. I formatted sda1 to ext4 now. What I do is run the Live CD (9.10), use terminal, then do

sudo -i
mkdir /media/boot
mount /dev/sda1 /media/boot
grub-install --recheck --root-directory=/media/boot /dev/sda1
and it goes

grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea.
grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and its use is discouraged.
grub-setup: error: Cannot read `/grub/core.img' correctly
also, when I do update-grub it says "grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for /."
I tried installing grub on sda2 and flagging it as a boot and still no-go.

Ubuntu Installation :: Samsung Scx-4521 Refuses To Install?

Sep 13, 2010

I've been trying for days to get this printer to be recognized by 10.04. I've tried seemingly every possible combination of methods from "HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver" to no avail (though I have learned a good bit during the process). Presently, the (partial) output of the printer error log file is as follows:

************************************************** *****************

Installation :: D820 Refuses To Install System / Fedora - Fix This?

Jun 3, 2011

I am a new to linux. I recently purchased a used dell d820. It has 2 gigabites of ram, and has centrino duo. The hard drive is 80 gigabites. I used boot and nuke to erase windows xp, in order to install linux. (I was quite unhappy with the screen, codec, and other problems I was having with windows.)

However, each time I try to install Fedora, or any other version of linux to the hard drive, the computer shuts down ENTIRELY.

Is there a way to fix this? I seems like my machine just doesn't like linux?

Fedora Installation :: Cloned F11 Install Refuses To Boot (kernel Hang)?

Jun 17, 2009

I installed F11 x86 from the DVD onto one of my machines using a total of 4 partitions:

1. /boot
2. /
3. /home
4. swap

I then created an image of the first 3 partitions with fsarchiver and restored it onto a second machine (with different hardware). Grub was loaded onto the second machine as well without a problem. The new cloned install will get past grub fine but the kernel hangs. After removing 'rhgb quiet' from the boot options, I can see that the last message outputted to the console is something about the PS/2 mouse - this doesn't make sense as the mouse is working perfectly fine.

Additionally, I can still reboot using ctrl-alt-delete so the kernel/CPU must still be responsive. I have tried troubleshooting the various pieces of hardware, so I'm guessing it's something with the clone. All the cloned filesystems appear to be fully intact; the partition UUID's are all the same. I've even tried changing the UUID's both in grub and /etc/fstab to hardcoded /dev/sdaX , but this does not fix anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Ktorrent Dependencies Broken - Cannot Install

Apr 16, 2011

I have Ktorrent installed via the repositories and its always worked perfectly. Today I ran software update with KPackageKit and it installed updates. It told me that KTorrent had to be removed to continue and without thinking I hit ok. Now my KTorrent is gone. When I try to install it on the terminal with


sudo apt-get install ktorrent

it gives me this error.


$ sudo apt-get install ktorrent
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done


The following packages have unmet dependencies:

ktorrent : Depends: ktorrent-data (= 4.0.3-0ubuntu1) but 4.0.5-3ubuntu1~maverick1~ppa1 is to be installed

E: Broken packages If I remove and reinstall ktorrent-data it doesn't help. build-dep doesn't help. autoremove and then trying to reinstall doesn't help. I'm not running some strange dev version of anything. I have a standard Kubuntu 10.10 amd64 installation and my KDE version is 4.6.2 from the regular repositories. I run updates (standard repositories) almost every day and have never seen anything like this before.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Refuses To Appear After XP Install?

Jan 17, 2011

I've been running Maverick for a while now, and I decided to use the extra (unallocated, don't worry) space on my hd to install XP. After I installed XP I realized that I didn't get GRUB, so I couldn't boot Ubuntu. I tried fixing it using this, but to no avail. The only thing that happens now is that my computer boots up normally, but where GRUB would usually be, I now see a black screen. This is getting to be VERY aggravating.

Also, which partition should be flagged as boot? currently I have my Maverick partition flagged as boot because it has a boot directory. Should I not have any partition flagged as boot?

Ubuntu Installation :: G++ Dependency - Refuses To Recognize USB WLan Adapte

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Refuses To Boot If USB External SATA Attached?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a 9.10 fully updated install on an old P4 HP desktop that otherwise runs flawlessly. We moved it to the bedroom to use as a media center and when I plug in a Thermolake toaster with a Hitachi 750G SATA drive it is recoginized and available no problem. I can read/write no problem. It works via nfs4 no problem. The issue is if I reboot while the drive is attached it the machine refuses to reboot and hangs on the initial hardware screen not even showing a grub screen. This has always been a native ubuntu machine with no dual boot or any weird grub2 issues previously. Interestingly, I am getting the exact same issue with another HP desktop (Celeron machine) with 9.10 Server 32bit that I' using as a home server. This is obviously a bigger problem because if the server updates or requires a reboot for any reason I can't just leave the drive attached. This drive houses our movie and music collection.

Ubuntu Installation :: FireFox Refuses To Recognize Flash Update

OpenSUSE :: SUSE Studio Preload ISO Refuses To Install (most Of The Time)?

Jul 18, 2011

Whenever I try to use a preload ISO from susestudio.com, it takes me about 5 tries to actually get it to install. I load it up in VirtualBox, and on the screen that warns "you are about to erase all data on /dev/sda, continue?", selecting "yes" will 80% of the time cause it to think you cancelled and waits 30 seconds before rebooting. Every now and then it decides to work, but sadly that's the exception and not the rule. If it makes any difference, the appliance I'm downloading is a custom one based on openSUSE 11.4 Minimal X with GNOME 3 installed on top of it.

OpenSUSE Install :: User Account Refuses Keyboard Input?

Dec 18, 2009

openSuse v11.1
Linux x86_64
VirtualBox v3.1.0

One user account completely ignores all keyboard input. No other account demonstrates this bizarre behavior. The faulty account has had occasional keyboard difficulty but it has always been related to the Virtual Machines (VirtualBox); the hosting account always functioned correctly.

Then the ban on keyboard input. Poof! "Keyboard? What keyboard? I don't see no stinking keyboard!"

It is not the physical keyboard. Three different hardware exhibit the same fault. It is not the motherboard; two mb's show the same fault. It is only that one account. And I even took the Windows route of re-installing the OS (what a waste of time that was).

If something changed, I am not aware of it (although something must have).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HIDPoint - Refuses To Install Properly In 10.04 - Error While Loading Shared Libraries

May 18, 2010

Bought a lovely new Logitech MX3200 keyboard recently, didn't expect to be able to use all the media keys on it. I was surprised, then, when I discovered HIDPoint, some software for configuring the hotkeys on many Logitech keyboards, and more surprised when I saw that mine was on the supported devices list. Anyway, HIDPoint is only available for up to Ubuntu 9.10, and refuses to install properly in 10.04.Here is the output when I try to run the installer:


error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I can't find libpng.so.3 in Synaptic, so what should I do to get this program to install?

Applet prompts to update the system, click Apply updates
Accept licence agreement for flash player update

The applet goes back to listing the available updates - ie. it doesn't run the update The workaround is to untick the flash player update, run the other updates and then do the flash player update by itself.

OpenSUSE Install :: Install Kdebase 4.7 With No Additional Dependencies

Aug 29, 2011

I'm looking for a way to install kdebase 4.7 with no additional dependencies. My target is home desktop and I only want these : kdm, plasma, ark, dolphin, kdesu, konsole, okteta, kwrite, kate, kmix, ksnapshot. There are things I don't use but they get installed anyway and break kdm if removed. These things are : akonadi, strigi, nepomuk, virtuoso, kfind, kgreeter and a couple of others, including libqtzeitgeist0 and PIM in general. Also I don't want kdm 4.7 features hence I use kdm3 as a login manager. Is there a 4.7 build that doesn't mind the removal of so called base components? If not, is there a 4.4 repo for 11.4?

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Install Dependencies Using DPKG?

Jun 16, 2010

Is there any way to make this:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Also install dependencies for a deb file in the same way as GDebi does? Basically I have the above in a script, which I can right click in any folder and have it automatically install all debs in it. So much easier and quicker than using GDebi for each one. However, as of now, it doesn't seem to be installing dependencies, and causes broken packages.

Ubuntu :: Install Apt (and Its Dependencies) On ARM Target?

I have done this easily using apt-get on a Beagleboard that had an Xubuntu installation, but I am now working with a minimal install that does not have apt. My question is, is there a simple way to install apt (and its dependencies) on my ARM target?
