Ubuntu Installation :: Before Get To The Install Options - Get An Error Message
Jul 3, 2010
i'v installed ubuntu 10.04 on 3 different desktops and 1 laptop. It has gone flawlessly on all 4. i a want to install it on my hp to dual boot(the others i just wiped the drives) but when i tell it to boot from the cd at first it looks like it might work, with the purple page, but after a few minutes, before i get to the install options i get an error message. my current operating systime is windows and i have an hp pavilion. with 2.5 gigs of ram and a descent graphics card.
Greetings from Greece. I tried to install opensuse 11.3 in an empty disk . Unfortunately the installation progress stops in 88% and the message error says "error copy live image to the disk". I have burn two different cd but the result is always the same.Is it a hardware problem or the cd is not correct?I had the 11.2 version in the same pc without any problem for a long time.
I am just now starting to go deeper than the surface of my computer so I am very much a beginner. I have downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and have tried to install it by mounting the image and installing "inside windows." Next, upon reboot and selecting Ubuntu from the windows loader it eventually went to a colorful screen but stayed there... the first time I let it sit there for 20 minutes or so then restarted, uninstalled/reinstalled tried again... then I let it sit there for 3 hours, nothing. Next I tried to mount image and install "demo and full installation." This time upon reboot I choose Ubuntu from the windows loader menu and an error message came up. I will type it out below exactly as I see it because this is the same message that came up when a friend suggested I boot from a USB drive.
I was trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my windows xp. dowloaded and installed wubi. All worked well and system asked me to restart. After restart ubuntu was showing on multi boot screen, selected it. Then the system asked me to ESC installation or not, i didn't Esc. The Ubuntu screen was showing, but all of a sudden an error message saying INSTALLATION FAILED occurred.
My system Processor: Intel pentium IV Ram 1 GB Harddisk:- 160 gb
10.04 new isnstall from cd goes for a minute then I get this error message: old p3 800 machine, will this distro work on an old machine like this:
BusyBox v1.13.3(Ubuntu 1:1.113.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell(ash) Enter "help for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: input/o-put error Cannot mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs (initramfs)
Im trying to instal Sun Virtualbox but when download completes and I click on install I get the following error>>Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) I wont even bother with this software if there are others out there that are as easy to use. I used it on Windows and thought it was great ! (thats how I eventually switched to Linux, by using it virtually at first)
I was trying to install ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot system with windows and I recieved this error message: The Grub package failed to install into /target/. Without the Grub boot loader, the installed system will not boot
This Error comes up after 94% of the install. I also cannot seem to get the side by side install option to work (sometimes this option appears sometimes it does not) I am not sure but I beleive seome of the install files have been placed on the hard drive because I only get the option now to install on the hard drive and totally wipe clean or the emptiest hard drive. So how would I get the possible Ubuntu install off the Hard drive. I have used this CD to Install before it has no scratches therefore should work. Also If I have Win Xp on a Raid 0 will the Ubuntu 9.10 install ?
I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.
Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are : From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm After installed suse linux. error messages for all options in yast2.
The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.
So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?
I receive an error mesage during install of ubuntu 10.4 while partitioning ext3 freezes at 5% then a black screen. I see the cursor but can't move it with the error message "process:304): Glib - warning **: getpwuid_r() : Failed due to unknown user id (0)", I have tried installing 9.10 and 5.0.5 Debian when I installed 9.10 ubuntu and debian it just froze and wouldn't do anything.
I had my recently installed Natty Narwhal running Unity. I changed a few simple graphic options for Unity, and the next time I log in, I got the message "your hardware does not support Unity", and then Gnome is running. How has this come to be??
So I have the burned ubuntu CD, and I'm attempting to install it on a system that has one HDD with XP/Vista on it, and another that is completely formatted and unpartitioned. However, when I boot to the ubuntu CD, I can use the menus from the bottom, and select the language when initially prompted, but I can't select any of the menu options except for boot from first hard drive.
I'm having an issue when I'm trying to install SuSE linux onto my desktop.I go through all the steps and everything looks okay, but when it starts to install the packages, I get an error message that basically says:kernel.desktop - unable to install, exit status 127.I have a ATI X1950 video card in the computer, as well as a AMD 64 FX CPU in the system.
I download a few times and burned a few CD's but after I select install on hard disc or use the livecd the computer will hung up and then I have a message saying boot error, I download the iso image from 2 different sources but still not working. I'm installing on a Dell 500 with 256Mgs of memory (I have Ubuntu installed but its too slow).
I just bought an Acer Aspire 7535-5415 laptop with Windows 7. I have burned ubuntu onto a cd. When I try to boot up the laptop with the cd in the drive it just boots up windows as it would normally and I don't get an options to install ubuntu or anything. I've tried both a cd that I burned and an official cd I picked up in the computing science department at my university. The same thing happens in both cases.
I have been using my desktop as a dual boot machine for several months now. The primary hard drive with windows on it died, and since we have been using ubunto 9.10 exclusively, I just removed the dead drive, changed the jumpers on the secondary drive to primary and did a clean install on the drive which presumably formats the disk before installing. When I try to boot from the hard drive i get the following message:
ERROR: no such device 2eb48bcb-7bb4-4080-b04d-fc32dec8c252
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 but while completing installation at the point when we remove installation CD from drive and go to press enter to restart the system, I saw this error:[2993.693601] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 537844 like this line there were so many line displayed the I pressed enter the PC got restarted and now Ubuntu running as nothing happened. But I couldn't understand what was that error and how much serious it was.
A couple of months ago I bought a new Dell laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed. Rather than strip the hard drive and go with Ubuntu exclusively, I left W7 on and set up Ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot installation. All was well for a month or more and now suddenly W7 won't boot. The Windows error message I get is The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible I've purged and reinstalled Grub2 several times with no luck. Also tried Windows fixmbr which allowed W7 to boot but made Ubuntu inaccessible. Below is the output of the boot_info_script.
Finally took the plunge and got myself an OCZ 32GB SSD for my main desktop. I'm getting some mixed info on the 'best' (and I know thats a personal option in the end) configuration for partitions, ect..
but as for the partitions such as /var and the others, I'm not sure what the best options would be to get the best bang for my buck. Also, is a swap file required anymore, will I see an appreciable different in performance if I just did not use one? If I need one, should it be on the SSD or one of the other drives?
Any time i try to install anything from terminal or synaptic i get this error message saying:
Or if i try to upgrade:
If i try to open the software-center the cursor changes but it does not open. This all started when it upgraded to Karmic Koala. There might be two seperate issues but i cannot install or uninstall at all.
3/4 of the way through the install the reboot black screen : The disk drive for / is not ready yet or not present continue to wait; or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery . neither works, was running Ubuntu 10.4.
I was trying to install a newer version of Firefox and thought I would just try to install the newer RPM for Fedora without doing anything else and this dialog message appeared. Could not do simulate: Can't install /home/kbs/Downloads/firefox-3.6.4-0.4.build6.fc13.remi.i586.rpm as no transaction
