Ubuntu Installation :: Get A Copy Of 64 Bit Vs 32 Bit Sent?

May 19, 2010

is not the right place for this question. When requesting a Ubuntu distro be sent to me I can not see any way of selecting a 64 bit version, is it possible to alter the request so that it is a 64 bit version vs the standard 32 bit version. I would download it but my Satellite connection is not all that great and I have a fairly small monthly cap.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Freezes At File Copy?

Oct 8, 2010

I am having difficulty installing Ubuntu on a new PC. Hardware is thus:MB: ASUS M4N68T-MCPU AMD Phenom II 3.2 GHzMem: Kingston 2GB DDR3-1800HDD: Seagate Barracuda 80 GB SATAvideo is on-board, cannot find the details regarding chipset.I have tried both 7.10 and 10.10 (would prefer to use 7.10) but both versions hang at the same point during installation.Live mode works fine on both versions.Tried burning 7.10 to CD at 4x write speed.Set MB bios "Plug and Play OS" to yes.When it hangs, the mouse freezes, then the video wigs out (think Van Gogh on acid) and only a hard power down will un-freeze it.

Are there any commands for it?

General :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

Fedora :: Disk Copy Utility - Should Be Able To Not Only Copy Files But Boot Sector And Everything

Sep 1, 2010

I have a 160GB harddrive which I installed a F12, would like to upgrade to a bigger drive, but I hate to have to re-install everything.

Recommend a good disk copy utility? The utility should be able to not only copy files, but boot sector and everything. So I just need to make a copy, change my BIOS to boot from the new drive and run everything as before.

Ubuntu Installation :: Using Dd To Copy A Whole Harddisk?

Jan 20, 2011

I'm going to replace the primary hdd of my box with another one of a different manufacturer, but of the same size (long story, never mind)

My current plan so I won't have to reinstall my system is booting from a Ubuntu CD (or USB stick, whatever) and doing

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb

(If sdb happens to be a few megabytes smaller it doesn't matter, the last partition is not important)

Now my questions:

1. Is this going to work? Is it a bad idea?

2. Should I use any parameters for dd, for performance? Like setting bs (or something) to a bit smaller than the both HDD's (equal) cache size?

If that matters, the hdd contains both NTFS, ext3/4 and reiserfs partitions. I use grub to boot Ubuntu, WinXP and Win7.

Ubuntu Installation :: Copy A Configured System To CD?

Apr 7, 2010

I've configured a complete 9.10 system in a VM using VMware. It's a very slim install done from the mini.iso and simply logs in as a user, starts X using ICEwm, and launches the latest Citrix ICA client to attach to a server. It works great, but now I'd like to take this configured system and make a bootable CD from it. The goal is to make a CD for a lab of older Dell GX270s to boot into a simple student desktop for Microsoft Officeapplications and internet browsing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Copy OS Partition From One Disk To Another?

Jul 17, 2010

I spend the vast majority of my time in Ubuntu, but every so often I still encounter the odd errand that requires a free copy of Windows that came with my hardware.

So I have Windows 7 on my laptop which I like slightly better than XP and a whole lot better than Vista. I am not in there a lot besides that its required for a web design class and sometimes for a few stubborn games, but I would very much like to copy my Windows 7 partition to a 100gb partition on my TB HDD.

How do I do it? Keep in mind, I am barely two tiers above noob on a scale of 1 to 20. I am working on it though.

I also want this partition to be bootable. I dont care if I lose the rest of the data on the disk. I want to redo everything anyway. I definitely want it to boot though, not just for the data to exist.

Ubuntu Installation :: Copy Application List From Pc To Pc?

Dec 2, 2010

I recently got a new desktop, and did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. The reason I installed 9.04 is because the laptop I have been on for the last 7 years or so suddenly stopped operating with grub updates. I would t urn the computer on and it would never get past the 'grub loading' screen. but thats a whole different story. So I did a fresh install of 9.04 off of a startup disc I made a while back. Then I copied my /home file from my laptop (the old one) and inserted it into the new desktop's /home directory. Worked like a charm (more or less), and all my settings were transferred to my new computer. Desktop, Preferences, Admin stuff, I can't find a problem with it. Now for the applications.

I've tried multiple how-to's but none of them have worked. I found one that told me to do the following in terminal. Keep in mind, although I've been running Ubuntu for about three or four years now, I would still consider myself a noob. Anyway:

sudo dpkg --get-packages <filename><destination>

this left me with a text only file called 'package.selections' I was then to copy this file into the home folder on the new computer and run the following:

sudo dpkg --set-selections <directory>

Up until that last command, everything worked just fine. The list had tons of package titles (none with a .deb or anything though) and their state, got it on to the new computer and ran the code only to get the following error:

dpkg --set-selections does not take any argument

So i ran it without the directory, and it gave me a new line. So I typed in the directory and it gave me the following:

dpkg: unexpected end in package name at line 1

I've tried numerous other commands changing up the syntax as I go, but haven't gotten any farther. My goal is to have all the same applications installed on my new rig without having to go and install all the packages one by one.

Ubuntu Installation :: Does Grub Make Copy Of Contents Of MBR?

Feb 26, 2011

My system is an Acer Aspire One Happy netbook. It runs Windows 7 OEM. I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix, which works fine. Unfortunately, I put GRUB in the MBR (I wanted it on Ubuntu partition in order to use Win 7 bootloader). Acer netbooks seem to have a particular MBR (in order to run e-Recovery Management), which is different to the standard Windows 7 MBR.

Moreover, in the internet there are instruction to restore Acer MBR, but they do not seem useful, since I do not find the MBRWRWIN.EXE and RTMBR.BIN files on the hidden partition. Is there a way to tell GRUB to remove itself and restore the previous content of the MBR (something like the old "lilo -u")? Does GRUB make a copy of the content of the MBR before installing itself? Where is it, if it is so?

Ubuntu Installation :: Copy Entire /home Directory To 11.04?

Jun 8, 2011

I installed a new 11.04 on my Thinkpad in place of the old 10.10 system, so it replaced the old /home with a new empty one. But I had previously done a partition copy of the original 10.10, complete with /home to a spare HDD so now I can copy that /home in place of the new empty /home. What's the best way to do that? Should I use 'dd'? Should I use Nautilus? Or should I partition-copy that copy of the 10.10 onto available space on the thinkpad 11.04, then manipulate the partitions to consolidate? Maybe create a separate /home partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dolphin Crashes On Any File Copy?

Aug 16, 2011

I don't know where to begin figuring this out. On a total fresh install of kubuntu 11.04, everything went fine. When I do any copying in dolphin it crashes. Konqueror does the same thing. I installed samba and I can copy files when using samba from a remote computer, locally it crashes dolphin and konqueror. I turned off desktop searching, still crashes. I tried copying from konquorer to dolphin and vice versa, crashes everytime. The system notification acts like it started the copy and keeps whirring until I close it. What can I try?

General :: Recover Backup Copy Of A Ubuntu Installation On A Usb Stick Using Dd

May 16, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a usb stick in persistent install mode. So I could boot the laptop or my desktop computer with the stick, at boot time. Once I needed the 8GB stick for another purposes so I thought about coyping it to my desktop doing from mac os x: dd if=/dev/disks3s of=/Users/jack/Desktop/usb_copy

Now I am trying to do the opposite, after having used the stick, which was formatted to NTFS, just doing

dd if=/Users/jack/Desktop/usb_copy of=/dev/disks3s

but although I can see that almost of the files are there, I can not boot again. IT is also strange the the file permissions are kind of strange, something like _user
