Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded 2 Different Images Of 10.10 And One For 10.04
Oct 29, 2010
I dont know what the problem is ive downloaded 2 different images of ubuntu 10.10 and one for 10.04. Ive also tried the Wubi.exe download as well. everytime i try and install inside windows it gives me the error right at the end tells me that permission is denied and to check the logs. I know that im not the only one that is having this problem. I have tried to reburn the image at a slower speed only thing that i havent tried is installing using a thumb drive.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
using the update maneger to update on ubuntu new linux images available 2.6.31-17 generic and after the download is complete both images exist in the grub menu should i remove them ? or just remove them from the boot menu ? and if so how could i do each.
I am running Linux from a DVD, not installed. I am not good with installing software, but since the DVD cannot be corrupted, I am content to operate this way. Lately, I have been having problems that previously did not occur. When I try to click on the checkbox to get rid of emails, it doesn't register in most cases, or when it does, I am clicking multiple times so it registers twice, meaning it is unchecked again. Even more frustrating is some issues that are affecting my ability to update my business. I am trying to modify spreadsheets (text not calculations).
Whenever I try to click & drag to select something to change, it keeps jumping around to select only some of what I want, something else or some combination of the 2. When I try to copy and paste several fields from 1 column to another, everything from the several fields in the source column ends up together in the last field in the target column. I am also trying to download some images from a website. There is a single column of links to the images. I have to click on the link to get to the image in order to copy it, then back out to continue looking for more links to do the same.
My computer keeps jumping back 2 steps, then forward 2 steps, and sometimes I lose my place in that list. I could deal with it if it were a small number of links, but this is a list of probably close to 20,000 links. Again, i am operating off of a live DVD so this should not be corruptible, but this has just started happening, and has been an issue the last several sessions.
I know that ImageMagick's convert program can be used as follows to convert a collection of images -- say, in PNG format -- to a PDF file:
convert *png output.pdf
The problem with this is that each image is then stretched to fit on one page, whereas I would like to keep the original dimensions of the images and put as many as possible on one page in the PDF file before moving on to another page.
I am just spent half an hour hunting for a thing that should be totally available already:USB install images of Ubuntu, knoppix and all the others.And, the only good way are so far complicated tutorials where you extract the stuff from an CD image. Why??Hasn't everybody notices that CDs/DVDs are vanishing big time? That more and more systems don't have the readers anymore? Instead of following a 10 point instruction list, it would be nice to just be able to download a Ubuntu 8.10 or whatever USB image and be able to beam that DIRECTLY to a USB stick with a dd command.
Or am a missing something here? Does this exist?It should by no means be mariginal, considering how important USB stick in specific and flash memory in general have become.
Recently I installed airlines-themes, using the command
Code: sudo aptitude install airlines-theme It worked perfectly. My question is where are all these packages downloaded locally, so that if needed I can install them later without an Internet connection. Not just theme, I can do it for other application as well (for eg. ubuntu tweak and many others).
So, my experience with the upgrade. Going from 9.10 64-bit to 10.4 64-bit. Tried to be a decent, sharing sort and downloaded the LiveCD for 64-bit from torrent. No problem. Didnt have any blank CDs handy, but I had a 1GB USB thumb drive that I have used to install other distros that I wanted to test, so used unetbootin to make my installation on. No problem.
LiveCD tried to run, but hung with a black screen; no blinking cursor, nothing. Problem. Restart, go back to my functioning system, and re-create the LiveCD on the thumb drive using USB Startup Disc Creator. No problem. Reboot. Monitor went into standby and never came out. Problem. Decided to give up on the LiveCD. Downloaded the alternate-install CD for 64-bit and put it on the thumb drive. No problem.
Installation went fine. No major hang-ups at this point. Had the grub_puts problem, even though I specified the correct place, and so had to reinstall grub, which fixed that.
Although it is still early in the process for me, my main (relatively minor) gripe is the same one I always have: Although Linux seems to be able to tell a lot about the hardware (through what I assume is either asking the hardware about it capabilities or getting info from the BIOS, perhaps), why can it not tell that my keyboard numlock key is supposed to be ON? My BIOS is set to turn it on at boot. My username and password both have numbers in them, and it is convenient for me to have the numlock on at boot and remain on.
I fully realize that there are many users of notebooks/netbooks that having this setting ON for default is a problem. I dont want it ON as default. I want a simple way to change the setting. Ive seen complaints and questions about this since at least Edgy (there may be older postings, but I havent needed to research back). System>Preferences>Keyboard can let me do so many things with my keyboard - except this, apparently.
I use a Karmic Koala and I want to upgrade to Lucid Lynx. All the packages are up to date. So if I upgrade online, how much data download am I looking at? I have a sufficiently fast connection, but I have a limit on the data that I can download. Is it less than downloading a Lucid Lynx CD? Can I get an exact figure somehow?
I've downloaded 4 versions of Ubuntu and Kubuntu but I've had no success in making a CD. Downloading them at the same time should not have been the problem as I've done it before. This was done after a fresh install of 9.04 Jaunty I had a problem with previous installs I have of an upgraded lucid 10.04 Could several partitions cause a file corruption, I know I had a file problem with Ubuntu one across several partitions.
without internet connection (on Ubuntu), and need to install MySql. I have all packages needed for instalation, but i cannot import them in Synaptic Package Manager. how to add this? I have tried with: file->add downloaded packages, but it do nothing.
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.
I'm looking to run a dual boot on this laptop. I have Win7 currently installed, and I have my hard drive partitioned and ready to go for an Ubuntu install. I've downloaded the i386 CD from the website, burned it successfully. I rebooted with the disc in, and when I select install to hard drive, it shows a blinking cursor below the install screen and hangs there. I installed the ISO to a bootable USB drive and tried to install it that way, same thing. I even tried downloaded one of the alternative CDs and installing it both ways. Same problem. Ive installed Ubuntu on this laptop before and it's ran successfully. I believe it was 9.04.

I am a newbie to Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu STudio 10.04 Lucid, and to install Open Office, I have chosen the below method:
1. Went to System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package manager. 2. Here, I chose Open Office Package and marked something, which I now dont remember. 3. Download of the associated packages have been completed, but it is not installed. Around 99 mb is downloaded, but I am not sure where it is saved.
The problem is that, it is not yet installed. After the download, it behaved like it was installing, I waited, but of no use. How to install the same and where the downloaded packages sit in the system?
I have downloaded ubuntu cd from bit torrent. Unfortunately my dvd rom is not working now. So i have decided to use windows installer. Can you give me any idea how to link this ubuntu which i have already downloaded from bit torrent?
Interested in trialing Varkon and used Synaptic Package Manager to download and install. According to the [url]...nstalling.html it should be there under 'Applications'. I've looked through them all and no sign of Varkon. I've also tried to see if Varkon was installed so I looked via Ubuntu Software Center under installed software. No sign. Did a file search for Varkon.
When I had 9.10 installed I had /home and / on separate partitions but this time, I wanted them both within the same. I downloaded my old home partition to an external drive, wiped the old partitions and installed lucid but now I can't mount the drive. I am trying to use:
Code: sudo mount -o loop -t auto /mnt/storage/home.img /mnt/oldhome/ but I get an error of wrong fs type, bad option or bad superblock. fdisk -l shows:
Running Ubuntu 10.04 currently. But for some reason cant seem to find what im looking for about making USB drives bootable once ive downloaded the .iso file i want. USB-creator-gtk seems to only work with the ubuntu family. ImageWriter only works with .img files? I want to play around with other linux distros from .iso. I tried makebootfat and got some errors. ill post them later if you guys think makebootfat is the way to go but i think im making it to too hard on myself.
The Ubuntu website doesn't include the md5 checksums for the current 10.04 matrix. The forum announcement thread also makes no mention of these checksums. That means servers could be distributing defective isos and on day one, that could mean tens of thousands of downloads could be defective. I have to say that md5sums have been a mainstay of Linux ISO distribution for a decade, this despite whatever flaws one might find in it, yet for the last few releases of U, md5sum data are the hardest data to locate on the Ubuntu website, and on release day, they are critical.
I turned on the computer this morning as usual, went into firefox, and some of the pages in the tabs look a bit strange, but i reckon they're just loading slow.Then I went into one of my sites that has images of some other sites that I designed. The images all seem to be there, so on. So I click through to one of the sites and... no images. Odd. Tried clicking where the image should be "View image" and it says firefox can't find it. Checked in ftp, the images are there and viewable.
Installed chrome and the site is perfect. Images showing up and everything.Still the same after a reboot.It makes cpanel really hard to use. Lots of sites including Facebook are just rubbish to look at (not just mine), seems the stylesheets may not be loading either in some cases. However, Ubuntu Forums is normal. In fact the whole thing is apparently completely randomAll is fine in Chrome.Is this a buggy version of firefox installed in the the latest update?
I copied memdisk from /usr/lib/syslinux/ over the to my floppy disk image (dos622.img) and booted int the grub command prompt to see if i could load the image manually. with the followinglinux /boot/memdiskinitrd /boot/dos622.img but nothing occurs, it just goes back the the command prompt. When i trylinux16 /boot/memdiskinitrd /boot/dos622.img i get "linux-bz image, setup -0x600, size 0x5apc form the linux16 command and"You need to load a kernel first" form the Initrd command.
