General :: Slow And Poorly Working Karmic Koala After Upgrade From Hardy

Jan 21, 2010

I reinstalled Ubuntu on my HP pc-40 computer. I used to run Hardy Heron and am now running Karmic Koala. The cd drive which had had issues for a while, broke after finishing the install, when I tried to get the cd out.I dont know if this has anything to do with it, or if my computer is too old for Karmic Koala, or if possibly the harddrive didn't appreciate being overwritten a second time - but the graphics are not working well (small squares of previous windows linger in my present browser window*)everythin is much slower, and many applications come up without a border, or their windows cant be moved with the mouse.

To top it off, while I tried to fix a bug with the terminal (no border) and uninstalled it, I couldnt install it back. So no terminal, which really makes even a newbie like me sad.If I cant solve it in a few days I will probably try to install a smaller distro via USB - I think Slax can be installed straight to USB without a live cd?

Ubuntu Networking :: Hardy Heron - Usb Wlan Connection Came And Went?

Jan 3, 2011

After days of trying to get a TL-WN321G usb driver to install in Hardy Heron, it finally arrived in the proper place. In trying to then set it up, I got as far as enabling roaming mode, and the icon showed that the system had made a connection to my Belkin-ASDL-G router. I launched Firefox, which momentarily showed Google home page(where I'd been last when using a wired lan), then it changed to "Server not found".
I've tried rebooting several times, but it remains the same. Each time the dongle led lights up, the icon shows it trying to make a connection to the correct network, but it fails to do so.

On another pc on this network, I looked in the router settings for DHCP client list, and this client has now vanished from the list where it had been showing before. Possible complications may come from a setting in the client list that still shows up with the same host name, generated by an earlier attempt with a different usb dongle.

So two questions - do I need to find out how to remove the old client first, if so how ? And secondly, does anyone recognize the symptoms and can offer a solution ?

Ubuntu :: Installing Karmic Koala On Already Partitioned Hard Drive?

Feb 18, 2010

I partitioned my hard drive on my computer with G-parted, the second partition (sda3) has data stored on it. I use to have Karmic Koala on sda1, but something went wrong and I want to install it back on sda1. How would I do this without losing my data on sda3? When I use the live disc, it want to install it onto sda3. I cannot figure out how to install it only on sda1.

Also, when I stored data, I want to store it on the sda3 partition. I already have on that partition a /jason file which was my old Karmic Koala.

Ubuntu :: Port 80 Closed After Upgrade From Hardy Heron To Lucid?

May 24, 2010

I had an install of 8.04 running Tomcat 6 on port 80. I did a marathon upgrade session to 8.10, then 9.04, then 9.10, and finally to 10.04. My website no longer loads (from Internet, LAN, or local), and a port scan shows port 80 is not open. I have removed and reinstalled Tomcat 6, to no avail.

Could it be that the 10.04 upgrade saw an existing Desktop install and locked this port down? The /etc/Tomcat6/server.xml shows it is using port 80, so that much appears to be correctly configured. Before this would give me the ROOT webapp. Anything else I can check? Does this sound like a Tomcat problem or something Ubuntu is doing?

As a side note, I have installed the Tomcat 6 Docs and Manager apps as well. These also worked before the upgrades, and do not now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Setup OpenDNS FamilyShield On 8.04 Hardy Heron

Jul 3, 2010

I am having trouble setting up FamilyShield on an Ubuntu 8.04 system. The setup instructions on this (opendns.com) site are for newer versions of Ubuntu. Network Manager settings are different in 8.04 and don't correspond to the instructions. However, given the age of this computer, it cannot run a newer version of Ubuntu, and 8.04 is an LTS supported until 2011,

Complicating matters is I am living as a guest, so do not have the option of setting FamilyShield on the router. It must be done on my computer.

Here's what I've tried:
System->Administration->Network

go to DNS Tab and add the FamilyShield DNS numbers. BTW, there are two DNS numbers from the internet owner's ISP (Roadrunner) automatically in here already, along with "socal.rr.com" in the Search Domains field. If I try to delete them, they reappear when I reboot. If I add FamilyShield DNS numbers here, either along with, or in place of the ones that automatically appear here, they do not take, and on next boot FamilyShield DNS numbers are gone, but "socal.rr.com" DNS and search domains reappear.

I've also tried:

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.com
and added following line at the end:

Code:
prepend domain-name-servers 208.67.222.123,208.67.220.123
When I reboot the system, I'm still using the assigned DNS numbers from "socal.rr.com".

I was able to try a newer version of Ubuntu (on a different machine) on this network, and it worked fine with the setup instructions. So this appears to be a problem specific to how Ubuntu version 8.04 handles DNS number changes.

Ubuntu :: Hardy Heron Kept Dropping Network Connection (both Wired And Wireless)?

Apr 30, 2010

using Hardy Heron on a old Thinkpad T41.This is a fresh install system and I noticed it kept dropping wireless connection. After google around, seems like this is a common problem? Then I switched to wired network, and turned out the same thing happens again. Looks like doesn't matter wired or wireless, it kept dropping itself from time to time.
fter checking syslog, I found something interesting...it kept complain eth0 is invalid, then it said it found a better connection?I found that extremely weird..

Code:
Apr 30 06:24:32 support kernel: [ 961.236895] e1000: eth0: e1000_clean_tx_irq: Detected Tx Unit Hang

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get To Gui Karmic Koala?

I recently installed Karmic Koala server edition, and then did the 'apt-get ..install' for the desktop gnome, but now I'm not sure what to do to get my gui to show. I am stuck at the termanal type command line, it's asking for a sudo comman. I know a few 'sudo' commands, but I really need the gui.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Karmic Koala - Lvm And Grub2 Boot?

Feb 21, 2010

I am having problem in grub2 fails to boot the system. I get the error:

Booting from local disk...
GRUB loading.
error: no such disk
System setup:

It's a Dell XPS400 PC with 160 GB HDD. I have a non-LVM, primary partition for the boot file system (/boot) of 200 MB. I also have seven logical volumes (LVM partitions): six for each of the /(root), swap, /home, /usr, /var and /tmp, and one vbox_win_xp_base as a raw disk for running Win XP in the Virtualbox. I went on to configure all these without rebooting the system in between. Later I also updated to the kernel version 2.6.31._20. Next day I decided to reboot my system. But then the bootloader (GRUB2 in my case) won't able to boot it and gives the error mentioned above.

Ubuntu Installation :: Command Line But No Gui For Karmic Koala?

Jun 8, 2010

I've installed Karmimc Koala server edition, and I wanted the gui so I followed advice on a forum and did an apt get install gnome desktop etc. but don't know what to do next, all I see is a command line, no gui. I would even settle for just having web min so I could control my server from that, as I have read that servers are more vulnerable with a gui.....and my last ubuntu server got hacked, so I had to wipe out the hard drive and start all over.

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 Installation :: Upgrading From Hardy To Karmic In The Presence Of RAID?

Jan 24, 2010

I really want Python 2.6, which is not part of the standard Hardy packages. I just tried installing the Python 2.6 Linux distro direct from python.org. While I didn't see any error messages during the installation, I'm still defaulting to Python 2.5, and 2.6 installed to a different folder than 2.5.

A secondary wish: I would also like GROMACS 4.0 instead of 3.3. Again, Karmic has it as standard, Hardy doesn't.

I'm running dual hard drives in a software RAID1 configuration. My system is Linux only, so I have no Windoze compatibility issues to worry about.

Still, I've gathered that upgrading in the presence of RAID is different, and more problematic, than a standard upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Reconfiguring - Reinstall Hardy Heron On A New (smaller) Partition From The Free Space Partition

Jun 15, 2010

Currently, my partitions are set up as such:

83GB ext3 free space
~10GB ntfs HP/Vista Recovery Partition
~93GB Ubuntu (Hardy Heron)

I tried to just have two partitions (recovery and ubuntu), but because of the different file systems, and the placement of the hp recovery partition, it has to be right in the middle. This is basically what I want to do:

1) Reinstall Hardy Heron on a new (smaller) partition from the free space partition.
2) Once it's working properly, format the rest of the hard drive (getting rid of the recovery partition) and create a single ext3 partition.
3) Install another distro on this new partition.

Does anyone foresee any complications with all this slicing and dicing of my hard drive for which I should/could prepare?

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Koala 9.10 DVD Install Server Edition?

Jan 3, 2010

I bought a magazine "Ubuntu User" that comes with the 9.10 DVD (32- & 64-bit) to avoid heavy download.

1. What is the biggest benefit of the DVD versus the CD ? Having more software on the disc right ? But how can I install additional SW without downloading ?
2. I want to install a Home Server from the DVD but I don't know how to select the server edition to install ? Do I still need to download the CD image for the server edition ? I want to be able to select one or more of the automatic server installation scripts e.g. LAMP.

Ubuntu Installation :: 2nd Hard Drive Won't Boot (karmic Koala)?

Jan 3, 2010

i have 2 hard drives on my machine (1 with ubuntu & 1 with win xp) & would like to create a boot menu to select either at startup, but this isn't working. here is the order of how i setup my system:

1. installed win xp on drive1
2. disconnected drive 1 & installed ubuntu 9.10 on drive2
3. set ubuntu as master drive & win xp as slave drive

i've read about modifying menu.lst to get a boot menu, but as far as i can tell this is no longer valid in 9.10. i've also installed startup manager, which gives me a boot menu *but* when i select the win xp option at the boot menu, i get an error. i'm assuming this error is due to the fact that i am using 2 hard drives (instead of the more common 2 partition on 1 hard drive). Here is what my boot option says: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (on /dev/sdb1) Here is what commands run when I select this option:

drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
chainloader +1
Here is the error that results:
ERROR: INVALID SIGNATURE

is it possible to get a boot menu with 2 hard drives using 9.10? it's worth mentioning that i am a brand new user to linux. p.s. the reason i didn't go for a partition on 1 hard drive from the start is that the ubuntu partitioner did not recognize any free space on my win xp drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From Karmic Koala (9.10) To Maverick Meerkat (10.10)?

Oct 21, 2010

I currently use Karmic Koala (9.10) and want to upgrade to Maverick Meerkat (10.10). The thing is that Update Manager allows me to upgrade only to 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) but I cannot upgrade to Lucid Lynx because of a bug which freezes my keyboard and mouse. Also, upgrading first to 10.04 and then to 10.10 is quite time consuming. Can I upgrade directly to 10.10 from 9.10 without 10.04 acting as a mediator?

General :: RAID And Grub 2 On Ubuntu Karmic Koala (installation)

Feb 11, 2010

I've been trying to get Grub 2 to work on a desktop system I'm trying to install Karmic Koala on. It's currently got two similar hard drives, which I've partitioned into a small /boot partition and the rest as a large general partition. Both are fd (linux software RAID) types. I boot from the Ubuntu live CD then create the RAID arrays as RAID 1 (requires installing mdadm to work). Then I start the arrays and begin the install.

I select manual partitioning and create the first RAID array (/dev/md0) as an ext4 /boot. The second array (/dev/md1) requires a new partition table. I then partition it as 20G for /, 2G for swap and the rest as /home, giving me /dev/md1p1, /dev/md1p2 and /dev/md1p3. When the install finishes, I mount the various partitions in /mnt (for /dev/md1p1) and below, including binding /dev and /proc. Then I chroot and install mdadm in the new system. I update grub, re-install it on /dev/sda & /dev/sdb then update the initramfs.

A quick reboot and things go wrong... Grub boots me into a recovery console. Apparently it can't see the partitions in the second RAID array. how to get Grub 2 and/or mdadm to work in this situation? I know that apart from the RAID, the above process worked to allow me to set up a Grub 2 boot on an antique laptop with an incomplete install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Inspiron 1501 WinXP/Hardy/Karmic Unintentional Quintuple Boot?

Feb 23, 2010

I've just had to reinstall WinXP on a Dell Inspiron 1501. An ideal opportunity to try out Ubuntu. First I tried a WinXP/Hardy Heron dual boot - all seems okay. Next WinXP/Karmic dual boot - all seems okay. Then, why not, WinXP/Hardy/Karmic triple boot - all seems okay. Playing with each OS I noticed that Hardy had a couple of update notifications. So I opened Update Manager, went on-line, hit [Check] and was informed that there were 200+ Important Security Updates - I installed these. Better check Karmic too - similar story, installed 200+ updates. Everything still seems okay in WinXP, Hardy and Karmic. However, I've just noticed that the Grub2 boot menu now displays eight "Ubuntu" lines, as opposed to the four lines I had originally

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (recovery mode)...

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Koala - Slow Jerky And Has Odd Freezes Like Windows - Applications Randomly Stop Working

Nov 7, 2010

I had been happily on Jaunty Jackalope until they stopped supporting it so I took the forced upgrade and it's HORRIBLE!

I feel like I'm back in Windows land. Within an hour of my first load I had my very first Ubuntu total-lockup. Just like Windows. In the 18 months I'd been using Jackalope I had not had a single crash. Not one.

It's slow, jerky, and has odd freezes. Just like Windows. Applications randomly stop working and die. Just like Windows.

Is there any way to fall back to Jackalope or is there any hope of them fixing Koala? 'Cause this is wretched.

I see there's another version out there...10.04.01.LTS. I'll try that. It can't be much worse.
