Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Runs Karmic And Has Quit Booting When It Is Plugged In

Feb 9, 2010

My computer runs Karmic and has quit booting when it is plugged in. I was told it was the AMP needing updated. How do I do that? I do the updates from the update manager, does this mean I missed the AMP update or is it done differently than through the update manager.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Karmic Install Runs CPU At 95% To 100%?

Feb 5, 2010

Am running karmic on a P2-350 Mhz with 256 Mb RAM. Yes, I know this is an old computer, but it has been very good, performance wise, since versions earlier than 8.x I think.

But now, after a fresh install of karmic, it is very slow at everything. Checked system monitor and CPU is constantly running at between 95% and 100%

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Start Computer Without External Hard Drive Plugged In

Jan 12, 2010

I finally got my new internal hdd for my laptop. I plugged it in and installed windows 7 64 bit. Then I partitioned my external hdd (WD mybook 640gb), and installed ubuntu 9.1 on a 200gb partition of it. The problem is that I didn't unplug the internal hdd before I installed ubuntu. Now the computer will not start unless I have the external hard drive plugged in.

So what should I do so that I will be able to go into windows 7 normally if the external hdd is unplugged? I would also like to be able to use ubuntu when I plug in the external hdd. I wouldn't mind having to go to the boot menu and choosing the external hard drive every time I wanted to use ubuntu.

The reason I partitioned the external hard drive was because it has a lot more space than my 250gb internal hdd, and I also wanted to leave space open to use as was intended, to back up stuff.

However, now that I think about it, I wouldn't mind partitioning the internal hdd and just leaving the external blank (which I should have done in the first place).

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting 9.10 Karmic With Windows 7?

Mar 5, 2010

AMD 939 Athlon 64
Biostar 6100T Motherboard
Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit
1tb Seagate hard drive

I did the install from the 64 bit edition Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala iso file and when I restart is gives me the no root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu. Unfortunately I don't know if it means the window installation or the Ubuntu one. I also don't know exactly how to get to it if it isn't the windows one. I also want a triple boot with Windows XP Professional SP 3 32 bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Koala Crashed My Computer

Sep 13, 2010

I just upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic, but once I loaded Karmic and rebooted, my computer will not complete the boot up sequence and go into any desktop. It starts the initial boot sequence with the mouse appearing and then goes to the screen that looks like it has an atom cloud. After that, the screen goes black and the mouse-arrow turns into that white rotating wheel, but it stays that way. It never actually goes into any type of operation! I tried to go from the command line and find Lucid to overlay it on Karmic and hopefully solve the problem. It just looks like to me that several of the packages I downloaded through my upgrade manager were corrupted. My computer doesn't even seem to be acknowledging my password because it gives me an error 32:must be authenticated.

Ubuntu :: Vista Not Booting Without External HDD Plugged In

Jun 6, 2010

I been meaning to install some linux distro on my external hdd to enjoy the renowned desktop experience, so far I installed sabayon first but it wasn't working very sharply and a friend of mine recommended me to just install ubuntu. Anyhow, since the first time I installed sabayon I could not boot vista when the external HDD is not plugged in. I get a grub rescue command prompt. I don't have a vista cd because my laptop came with the whole recovery function installed on a vista partition. I can boot that from the grub menu, from there I did a boot system restore, but I still get the same error. I'd like to be able to boot vista without having the external HDD on of course.

Debian Installation :: 99 99 99 When Booting Up Computer?

Jul 8, 2010

having major trouble installing Debian.erased the data on one of the partitons that used to hold Vector Linux and tried to install Debian on but it failed for some reason.Since I'm dead tired (well, was) I thought I would call it a night and just wait until tomorrow to finish the installation.So, I rebooted my computer and all it would do is this:

99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99
99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

It would just do two or three rows of 99's and then it would hang. Does anyone know what is happening? Right now I have Windows on this computer and I can't even boot into that. The data for Windows is safe but I just can't boot into Windows for some reason.n erasing sda6, did I accidentally erase LILO too (Vector was the first option on LILO)?If someone has posted this problem in the past

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting Up The Computer And Getting BOOTMGR Is Missing

Jan 18, 2010

I am attempting to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix (I even tried Ubuntu Desktop) off of a USB drive. I use unetbootbin to prep the drive, my BIOS is configured to boot off the USB Hard Drive, after booting up the computer I get a message that reads "BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" This laptop is currently running Windows 7 which, after removing the USB Drive, boots up fine.

I've seen other posts on this but they all refer to dual-booting and modifying grub configuration files. I'm not even to that point yet (and don't even want to dual boot, to be honest) - I'm just trying to get onto the "LiveCD" so I can format and install.

Ubuntu Servers :: Usb Netgear WG111 V3 Plugged Into Computer?

May 29, 2011

so i have most recent ubuntu server installed (10.04 i believe) and currently i have a usb netgear WG111 v3 plugged into my computer server. However it does not supply internet. I was told to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and put in

auto lo wlan0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
wpa-roam-default-iface wlan0-default
iface wlan0-default inet dhcp


but i have no idea how to edit it properly let alone, And this assumes your wireless NIC is already supported and visible as wlan0. Could someone help me or perhaps walk me through the process to correctly set it up so i don't have to bridge my connection from my laptop please?

Ubuntu :: Computer Runs Slowly Even When The MC Server Itself Is Off

Jul 29, 2011

I'm running a Minecraft server off of a dell T110 with Ubuntu 10.1 installed, as I haven't had a chance to install Natty yet. The problem is, it's running very very slowly, past the point where I could say it's the hardware's issue.

I have an intel xeon (2.4ghz quad core) in there, with 2gb of RAM. 2gb isn't much, but the computer runs slowly even when the MC server itself is off.

I'm talking super super slow, like, the cursor doesn't even show up all the time. It disappears frequently and things take a while to render/open, a site like facebook takes about 20 seconds to completely load.

This is my first ubuntu install, so I'm kind of new to it. The only problem/solution I could think is that I may have installed the 32bit version on a 64bit processor. I don't think I did, butttt that's the only thing that occurs to me

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer's Hardware May Not Support Booting To Disk

Nov 12, 2010

I am a ubuntu user and I tried to install ubuntu on my sister's netbook too. The problem is that the netbook has a broadcom wi-fi n that is not supported by linux for now because I searched for drivers and other stuff an I found that it is not supported. After that I tried to format the disk and reinstall windows 7 but the problem is that the installation procedure gives me this error: "windows cannot be installed on this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enable in the computer's bios menu."

I tried to do all the things that are described here: [URL] but it's still not working.

Obviously when I format the drive with ubuntu and I put it in the netbook it's not working, it stops at the logo and the only thing I can do is entering BIOS.

I formated the drive with a windows os and then the pc makes the boot from usb but the problem persit...I still can't install because of that error :"windows cannot be installed on this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enable in the computer's bios menu."

Before installing ubuntu the sistem had kaspersky antivirus and detected 1 Trojan, it could be that a virus destroyed the bootsect...I don't think so.

Ubuntu :: Computer Runs Slower Than Windows / Make It Up?

Oct 1, 2010

I have a 2-year old DELL XPS M1330. I used to have Windows Vista on it, but over time, I believe it became clogged with too many programs and so I wiped the hard drive and installed ubuntu 10.04 LTS about 2 weeks ago. However, ubuntu many times seems to run slower than vista did. I have 4 GB of RAM, an Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 (2.1 GHz, 3MB Cache, 800MHz FSB), 320GB HDD, 128MB nVIDIA GeForce 8400M. Ubuntu recognizes me as having dual processors at 2.1 GHz and 3.4GB RAM, but when I'm watching a simple video, whether online or locally on the computer, my CPU usage invariably jumps to 100% and it lags. Sometimes, even simple word processing makes it slow significantly.

Fedora Installation :: Installed But Computer Crashes During Booting

Jan 30, 2010

I've installed Fedora 12 64bit, but the computer crashes while booting, basically after the irqbalance or rpcbind steps.

Here are photos of the error messages:

Here are my hardware specs:
MB: Biostar TF560 A2+
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+
RAM: DDR2 800 Dual 128 bit, 2T (4GB)
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3870

The sound and network cards are integrated but I've tried disabling them from BIOS and the problem persists.

Note that I've tried Ubuntu (32bit and 64bit) and it also crashes about 30 seconds after loading the graphical interface (either installer or login screen). Fedora's graphical installer worked flawlessly, tho. I've also tried SLAX (using it right now) and it works without any problems.

Fedora Installation :: After Installing Graphics Drivers Computer Not Booting Into 14

Jan 22, 2011

I recently switched my primary desktop over from Windows 7 to Fedora 14. I successfully installed the OS on to my hard drive and booted up, following which I installed all of the updates and rebooted. After my first reboot I downloaded the 10.11 Radeon driver and installed it (because the 10.12 was having an md5 hash issue), the install was (supposedly) successful, but when I restarted my computer it first progresses to this screen (copied from softpedia) and then goes black for a second, and then returns to that screen and halts at the end of the progess bar and does nothing. I am looking for help to get back into my system.

Ubuntu Servers :: Karmic -> Lucid Not Booting?

Jun 6, 2010

server configuration: SCSI 36gig -> sdd; boot and root as it was first in the box;2 IDE hard drives -> sda/sdb for data; and1 SATA drive -> sdc for data.After upgrading to Lucid (not right away, but a bit later), it stopped booting:'Gave up waiting for root device.'ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/........... does not exist. Dropping to a shell!(initramfs)Happily, pushing ^D let it resume booting, but it kept repeating. After some study, I found the Lucid release notes that said "if you upgrade to ext4, you have to manually update Grub". A quick check showed that sdd was now, indeed ext4 - nobody told me! And, why couldn't it update Grub by itself? But, I dutifully ran grub-install and life went back to normal.

Until last night, when I updated the kernel, etc. with apt-get and restarted, and grub dropped dead:More googling turned up this solution, which I used with an install CD:http://tinyurl.com/2dhswzzWhich worked, but it brought back the first problem, and running grub-install doesn't fix it. So, what do I do now?

Ubuntu :: Computer Unstable Using The Karmic?

Feb 22, 2010

I seem to be having problems with karmic and perhaps GRUB2 sometimes when the computer boots after the GRUB2 screen I get a flashing cursor (underscore) and nothing happens. I end up having to hard reset. other times I'm using karmic and everything seems ok and then it suddenly freezes. I haven't been able to find a reason. Memtest seems ok too. which log file is likely to show me where things went wrong?

Ubuntu :: Karmic Booting To Black Screen With Unresponsive Cursor Flashing / Fix It?

Apr 23, 2010

As the topic says. I'm having problem after problem, everytime I figure out a way to take a step forward, my PC has pre-emptively taken a step back.

I'm unable to boot to X or (recovery mode).

I did try booting to a LiveUSB in order to run update-grub, but then it occured I have no idea how to do this from a LiveUSB that will affect the internal HDD installation?

So I'm currently trying to reboot from Live USB, but that just seems to have locked up the PC on the white ubuntu logo. I'm afraid to hard reset it (been doing too much of that lately). How long should a Live USB take to shutdown? (been about 10 minutes so far ). It's not a persistent LiveUSB as far as I know, and I basically just booted to the desktop and then start the reboot cycle as soon as I realised I didn't know what I wanted to do .

I'm installing Ubuntu and I'm stuck in the installation. I'm at the part where it say Who are you? and you type your username, nickname, password, etc. They all have checks, it says ready when you are, but I can't press forward. I can't do anything except go back which is to keyboard layout and location before that. No way to quit the installer or anything.
