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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 11.04 Until Maverick Meerkat Is EOL?

May 12, 2011

I was just wondering how long I have to upgrade to 11.04 until Maverick Meerkat is EOL. I have talked to other people, and they say to wait about a month until after the release to fix all bugs and stuff. Is this a good Idea? Or should I update now and just get it over with?

Ubuntu :: Dist-upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 Maverick Meerkat?

Oct 11, 2010

How are your experiences upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10? I'm thinking about it but I'm hesitating since there is no way I could make any backups and I've had some bad experiences with Debian dist-upgrades. Have you upgraded already? If so, have you had any trouble?

Software :: Maverick Meerkat Firestarter And Samba - Upgrade

Oct 25, 2010

Well over the weekend I took the plunge and upgraded. All was fine with Lucid. Well the upgrade was surprisingly straight forward. But, yep there is always a but. I though it had screwed up my samba totally, but no it hasn't. It is working just fine. I use firestarter to tweak my firewall, turn it off and all is fine.

I have told firestarter to open my local network, with a (I can never recall is that right?) but it still ain't working. Have router doing firewall duties too, so not that bothered, but would like to know how to fix it. Before I upgrad my webserver box too.

Ubuntu :: No Sound After Upgrade From Karmic Koala To Lucid System / Get That Back?

May 28, 2010

Last Monday I upgraded the Ubuntu from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx in my laptop (HP Compaq volna 515), and I have no sound. Searching in linux forums for an answers, I've got that (as far as I understand) there's no unique solution for this problem.

This is my lspci code...

Also, I tried to clean up the pulse audio .. What is funny for me is that pulse audio and alsa, and the audio players seems to work normally (no error of device not found or something like that).. except that there's no sound out from the speakers.

Any suggestion to discover if the problem is drivers, kernel, packages, or hardware failure? more important, how do I get the sound back?

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 :: Unstable Maverick Meerkat Installation

Dec 21, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu on an IBM Thinkpad T42 for about 3 years and have never had any instability but my Meerkat upgrade 10.10 about a week ago has never been right and seems to be getting worse. It's almost impossible to use the Internet. Whether Epiphany or Firefox, the screen keeps going grey and regularly freezes the computer completely so that NO keyboard commands work and only a hard restart will do. I also have problems streaming audio feeds with RP 11 or VLC. VLC is more of a problem which I find odd as it is solid in Windoze.

PS The instability isn't only Internet related. There are lots of strange little things like authentication windows not closing after I enter password and hit Enter or click OK, not being able to paste in Terminal (sometimes not others), toolbard in apps appearing differently sometimes, stuff like that.

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

May 19, 2010

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 :: Upgraded To Maverick Meerkat, Getting Black Screen?

Nov 10, 2010

I upgraded my laptop from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). Upon rebooting after the upgrade I get a black screen. No login window, nothing. Just a black, empty void on my screen.My laptop has a Nvidia graphics card, and reading around on the internet I heard that there is a problem with Meerkat and Nvidia cards, something to do with the driver or some such thing.Is there a way to fix this?I'm wondering if it's possible to boot Ubuntu into a command line interface instead of X Windows, log in, and change the driver settings in xorg.conf? How would I go about booting into the command line? Is there a sequence of keys to press at boot time?

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 :: 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:

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.

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 :: 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.
