I installed ubuntu 10.10 and everything works perfectly, but whenever I go to shutdown/restart, after showing the ubuntu logo (just like when you log in), the logo goes away, and it just hangs/freezes there.
I've tried waiting even for 10 minutes, but nothing. It there anything I can manually edit for it to just shutdown? If it helps here is my PC...
...and to be specific the WLAN module is a Ralink RT3090.
I know it is possible to install a Ubuntu Server Edition and later on 'upgrade' it to a desktop edition by doing
Code: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop But, as I understood it, this installs apps like OpenOffice and such too... Now, is it possible to install the ubuntu-desktop-GUI (so, actually GNOME) without installing all of the unwanted apps Apps I actually need are pulseaudio, transmission and samba, which I prefer to install separately.
So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.
But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.
I downloaded and installed the Ubuntu desktop edition and when I boot up I have the options to boot either Windows 7, or Ubuntu (so far so good), however, when I select Ubuntu I get a message saying that the following file is corrupt:
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
Any thoughts on this? Would just re-installing it fix the problem?
I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?
My config: PI945GZD motherboard 2 GB RAM Windows 7 UltimateMy processor supports 64 bit OS but I have not tried any. So should I download and use the 32 bit edition or the 64 bit edition.I have sound blaster 5.1(not sound blaster 5.1 live). Would it work in ubuntu?
i have win 7 ultimate running (32bit) on intel core 2 duo (64 bit) laptop.i have downloaded 32 bit version of ubuntu 10.04 and the wubi today. my win is running on C drive (primery partition). i have not enough space in c drive. can i install ubuntu in E drive
I want to run an executable file during or post linux installation which take input from user and closes on click of "ok" button. The thing i want to accomplish is something like the screen that turn up during the installation, like setting time or selecting some packages and then pressing next button...i want to do a similar stuff like the above said using my applicatio
after Linux Mint completely let me down, i decided to go with Ubuntu, but now the installer is stuck on detecting file systems. im trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition on my dell inspiron 1000.
I have been setting up a box now and have it configured with everything I need and is running great.I would like to test out the netbook remix edition is there a way to install the desktop environment along site with Gnome (like I use to do with KDE)Would be great so I wouldn't have to re-configure drivers and such.To be able to switch from Gnome environment to Netbook remix environment.I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
I'm a little bit confused with partitioning the filesystem in Linux. the difference between creating the file system with fdisk and mkfs (when formatting the disk). I can't clearly tell my problem, so please look at this picture:
a server at work has been accessed through the desktop environment as root. I know this is a risk and since I have never done it before I was wondering if there are any files created by the desktop that could compromise the system and how could I clean it up.
On the Ubuntu website, under the alternate downloads, there is a link for 11.04 netbook torrent download but clicking on the link gives an "unobtainable" message. On the "error" page, Chromium provided a link to the ubuntu page with all the 11.04 versions and checking through those there is not a netbook version.
Does this mean that there will be no netbook version of 11.04 and the desktop version will be OK on a netbook or is it simply that it is not available yet? I am intending to upgrade my current Acer Aspire One to 11.04 and am considering a clean install rather than upgrading via the update manager. I have downloaded the desktop version just in case.
Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.
I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.
It ran for a bit and now it says that it is running 10.04.2 LTS, but I am unable to get any updates. When I open the update manager it tells me "Not all updates can be installed" and says that I need to run a partial upgrade. When I hit partial upgrade it then tells me that "An upgrade from 'lucid' to 'jaunty' is not supported with this tool." This comp serves as my web/sql/file server so it's pretty important I keep it functional. Everything else seems to be working fine though which I can only assume is a good thing. Here's a copy of my sources.list:
I have an Asus 1018p with Ubuntu netbook version installed, and I wanted to upgrade the ram. With Windows 7 Starter, the maximum ram supported for this machine is 2 gb, and I was wondering whether the amount of ram supported by Ubuntu would be the same, or if it would be different. Also, if it's different, how would I go about finding out how much ram i could put in?
I have a server running ubuntu 9.10 server edition. The system has a built in tv-out powered by an Intel 82865G chip. I have a television connected to that, and it works fine in console mode, but when X loads, the screen starts rolling vertically (a 10 second video clip showing exactly what I mean can be seen at [URL]).
Ubuntu is a bit slow on this laptop, if this usually or is do i need to install a driver that helps the laptop getting fast with Ubuntu Netbook edition? I've got the Acer Aspire One AOA110, it had got a low HDD space.
After an upgrade from 8.04 -> 10.04 my system is unable to boot. After a lot of work it seems that the blocking problem is that /dev/md0 is not being created in initramfs so the volume group containing the / file system is not being activated and therefore the boot fails at that point. In /sbin both mdadm and lmv exist and the arrays and volume groups can be created manually using them. The system can then complete booting. Updating initramfs after booting has no apparent effect.
Based on posts I have found I have tried adding raid=noautodetect and rootdelay=240 to the GRUB kernel command line separately and together with no effect, except delaying the boot. It seems that udev is not running correctly so I began digging through the udev rules but don't really understand how it actually works.In /lib/udev/rules I found;
If I were guessing (and I am) I would expect 85_lvm2 to be run before 85_mdadm, which is the wrong order. I also found 56_lvm.rules which doesn't seem to do anything. I would appreciate pointers of testing these rules to see what the problem is. It seems all of the pieces are there for this to wok correctly but there is something missing. How can I run or test a single rule? Which udevadm options test these rules,
