Ubuntu Installation :: Make A Live-USB Containing Among Others Both Desktop I386 And Desktop AMD64

May 1, 2010

I want to make a live-USB containing among others both Ubuntu desktop i386 and Ubuntu desktop AMD64. How do I go about this? I tried using unetbootin, first adding i386 and then amd64, but that failed. My computer with an athlon II did manage to boot, and showed it had booted into the 64-bit version (ram shown was 3.9 GB, i386 goes to about 2.7 I think), my wife's computer with a pentium 4 did not manage to boot, got to a black screen. I think this is because casper has issues, being overwritten (I'd seen something to that effect somewhere), and thus only the latest version added being booted (in this case amd 64).

I'm under the impression that the startup disc creator included won't help, nor won't the multicd.sh script, so how do I circumvent the issues?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 RC Desktop I386 ISO Defaults To Installation?

Apr 26, 2010

I downloaded the ubuntu-10.04-rc-desktop-i386.iso file and burned it to a CD - i.e. what I thought would be a standard Ubuntu Live CD experience. Imagine my surprise when:On a black screen, there was a new (small) window on the left and a (small) meaningless stick figure on the right at the bottom of the screen, and after a while I got the error window entitled:

Installation failed
The installer encountered an unrecoverable error.
A desk top session will now be run so that you may
investigate the problem or try installing again.

Since when is installation (with no user interaction) a default when using a (Live)CD ISO image of any Ubuntu RC or otherwise?My only purpose was to boot up into the Live CD environment - but that was not only not presented as an option (normally there is a 30 second countdown) and the usual default is to boot up into the Live CD environment.This was not the case with the RC! Why not?

Ubuntu Installation :: Finding A Copy Of 11.04 Desktop Beta1 Amd64 To Download?

Apr 29, 2011

I am looking for a copy of 11.04 desktop beta1 amd64 to download. This is running on an x120e. Beta1 installs and works but freezes every few hours. Beta2 almost fully installs but pops up with a friendly error that says "installation has failed" with not much helpful in the syslogs. 11.04 Final kernel panics half way through installation.

At this point, I've tried almost everything, so I'm just trying to get back on Beta1 to get stable because this is my work computer. There are a lot of links on google, but every single one went dead as soon as final was released. After that, I will work on trying to get 11.04 final installed properly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Converting I386 To Amd64?

Feb 18, 2010

I recently upgraded my hardware and installed 32-bit Karmic (well really Mint 8 ) before realizing I would probably have gotten better performance from the amd64 architecture. Is it possible to convert an i386 system to amd64? Is it a good idea? Will there be a lot of problems afterwards? Is it easier to just backup home and etc, install a clean 64-bit system, then restore settings from backup? If I do convert the system, how do I do it? I thought I might be able to just install a different kernel but I can't find an amd64 kernel in the repositories..

Debian Installation :: Force Kernel I386 On Amd64 Hardware

Mar 25, 2011

I installed Debian Squeeze on a laptop today, with the official i386 DVD1. At the end, I was very disappointed to notice the installer automatically chose the amd64 kernel (with i386 packages ? how does that work ?). The hardware is compatible, but I'd really like to use the i386 kernel instead. Earlier, you could choose the kernel during installation ; I looked in Expert install with no luck. Where is it ?

Debian Installation :: Installer Incorrectly Installs AMD64 From I386 DVD?

Aug 4, 2011

I just installed Debian stable from the standard i386 DVD. When I booted up, I noticed that GRUB showed me that I had the amd64 version of Debian installed. However, I did not download an amd64 DVD, nor do I want that architecture installed on my system (even though my system can support it). The output from "uname -a" (which included both "amd64" and "x86_64") also seem to confirm this. However, I was able to install 32 bit packages and get them to work (gdebi wouldn't even let me do this when I had Ubuntu 32-bit).

I boot my computer, the cd-room boots, i choose language from the list and press install ubuntu, after that i see the ubuntu logo blinking and in few minutes it gets black and shows "Input Not Supported" and its just bumping around the screen! I had a feeling that maybe my monitor (ASUS) does not support ubuntu so i tried with a very old syncmaster monitor, but similar message appeared! What could be the problem?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Desktop Amd64 Crash Needs To Be Reported

Oct 19, 2010

On my dell inspiron laptop if I use a live cd to boot into Ubuntu and then reboot into Windows the computer freezes up within 5 minutes. I uninstalled everything that I had put onto my computer since I purchased it (less than a week ago) in desperate measures because I was ready to take it back and play stupid to get a replacement. Once I went on an uninstalling frenzy my problem was fixed, but I had to know if it was from a program I installed or the live cd I used so I tried it again and sure enough, within 5 minutes my computer was unresponsive. I was using usb flash drives for my live cd and this was on a different flash drive than the first. Just thought it should be known, and I'm not doing it again once I fix my less than a week old computer from this again.

Ubuntu Installation :: [Errno 13] Permission Denied: U'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso'

Jun 29, 2010

I'm new to Linux, so I decided to try using Wubi to get started. THe problem is, when it finished installing 10.04, I got this message: OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso' Is there any way around this? It might just be that overly restrictive thing called Vista (which I have the bad luck to be using). I was considering getting a USB drive for Ubuntu anyway..

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Wont Install From The Desktop?

Jun 17, 2010

I have just been trying to fix a friends comp, they had Windows crash, and it wouldn't reinstall properly. So I thought I'd put Ubuntu 10:04 on it instead. I burnt the CD today from an ISO that I've used perfectly fine in the past. When I finally got it to boot into the trial desktop. The install button on the desktop wouldn't work. Everything else that I tried to run would run fine. is there some way that I can run it from the terminal or could this indicate a fault in the Live CD?

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Or Install Will Not Run On Old EMachines Desktop?

Jul 11, 2010

I'm attempting to install Ubuntu on my girlfriend's old desktop. Her gateway laptop's motherboard just died on her, and until we can figure out a real solution she's using this old desktop that was running Windows XP. It was her parent's and it's an eMachine. So, meh. It's whatever.

I have an Ubuntu disc from Canonical and one from burning the .iso image. I've been fighting with it all evening trying to just get the thing to boot. It starts up, shows a purple screen with an Ubuntu logo on the bottom. If I don't hit Enter it will go into a crazy cycle of black screen command line things. It says various errors, but moves too fast for me to see anything that is actually happening. However, if I do hit Enter it takes me to the "Try Ubuntu without installing, etc." screen.

No matter what I hit from the selection, it goes to the black screen with random command line entries floating about. Various error, various actions being done. If I hit to run as Live CD or Install it, it will eventually stop and say "Welcome to Ubuntu! *insert website address here*" and give me the chance to type in commands.

ONCE during the power on/power off cycles of me fighting did the Live CD actually run. It ran nicely, and I clicked the icon to install Ubuntu and it got to 49% complete and said there was an error with the disc. I installed Ubuntu on my desktop last week with the same disc flawlessly. It ran with the real Ubuntu disc, the burnt ones do nothing.

I could tell you system specs but Windows was erased during the Live CD stint and there are no stickers on the front to tell you. But I can crack it open and look if needed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Corrupt Desktop Screen From Live CD V10.10?

Feb 11, 2011

When I try to boot from the Live CD of Ubuntu 10.10, I end up with a whitish corrupt screen, which should be the 'Desktop'. The CD is good and works on other PC's. I have tried two other graphics cards with the same result. It is therefore impossible even to install it. I have installed many other versions without problems. This PC works perfectly with Windows XPVistaWindows 7 and other Ubuntu versions.

Ubuntu :: Upgraded Kubuntu Lucid AMD64 Desktop With KDE 4.5?

Aug 21, 2010

I have upgraded my Kubuntu Lucid AMD64 desktop with KDE 4.5 using the kubuntu ppa backports. I am impressed with the overall visual and performance improvements. However I am facing the following issues after upgradation -

1. When I execute any application as root user (using kdesudo <app name>) they load with a primitive GUI. I have attached a copy of the dolphin application loaded as root user (kdesudo dolphin). Not sure how to restore the latest GUI for them. I tried running systemsettings as root user and tried to customize the theme little bit. But not much has changed

2. One new short cut for ExpoBlending has comeup in section Graphics. I am unable to execute it, since it has multiple missing dependencies, neither able to uninstall it.

3. I installed kpart-webkit and configured it using keditfiletype utility. Now while browsing certain websites such as facebook(after loading farmville application in facebook), I can see few dummy popup windows. Attached file contains one such screenshot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD For AMD64 Lucid (10.04)?

First, the official download page is 32k download. I've NEVER had that slow of a speed before. I've downloaded and used Ubuntu since Drake. The only desktop iso for AMD64 is 698k (Official download).

I've downloaded that image for AMD64 10.04 from two download locations and burned the CD. When I boot, I only get the install option in a non-graphical environment. No LiveCD button.
