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 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i've read about modifying menu.lst to get a boot menu, but as far as i can tell this is no longer valid in 9.10.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 :: Installing In Partitioned Hard-drive?

May 19, 2011

At present I have a hard drive with three primary partitions and one extended (logically split).

I'm runnining win 2k pro in each primary partition.

I'm about to reformat the middle primary partition and would like to take this opportunity of trying Ubuntu using the middle primary partition.

I'm using GAG to switch from one partition to another.

Is there any reason why trying Ubuntu in the middle partition would cause problems.

I think I read that Ubuntu can mess up the MBR.

General :: How Should A Secondary - External Hard Drive Be Partitioned

Having just moved to Linux from Windows, I have never considered whether or not to partition my 250 GB external hard drive. As of right now it will only be used for data storage. Should it be partitioned? If so, what size partitions?

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitioned Hard Drive Install On Dell Laptop?

Jul 13, 2010

I am getting ready to install Ubuntu 9.04 on my Dell laptop, only because 10.04 won't work. I have the hard drive partitioned as C: and D: . I am keeping Windows on C: for a couple of applications that need it. I still have a few things on the D: drive. Do I need to have it completely clean and formatted? And, will Ubuntu ask where I want it to be installed or will it just take the largest contiguous space available? After the install, does the system automatically ask if I want Windows or Ubuntu or how do I tell it which system to bring up?

Slackware :: Partitioned And Installed Slack On A 1TB Hard Drive And Missing 300Gig

Mar 25, 2010

I just partitioned and installed slack on a 1TB hard drive. I then run KDiskFree under KDE, and saw that I am missing about 300Gig! Is it just a simple thing between bytes and bits like MS. Or is this an issue I can not ignore? I have 3 partitions. One is my swap, one is ext4(slackware is on) the last is a jfs partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Corrupted MBR On Another Hard Drive

Feb 2, 2010

The computer that I have Ubuntu/Karmic just recently installed on, has 2 hard drives. Primary is Ubuntu, secondary is win95b. After the Karmic installation (which went perfectly), I now find that when I boot to the secondary drive, the MBR for win95b is reporting it is corrupted. I can use win95b, BUT it runs in dos compatability mode, and there are no CD drives showing, despite the fact that BIOS reports 2 cd drives. Can GParted fix the corrupted MBR on the win95b hard drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fan Or Hard Drive Spinning - Upgrade From Karmic 9.10 To Lucid 10.04

May 5, 2010

I have an HP Mini 210 and I recently performed an Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and noticed that the netbook is much more noisy now (and can get very warm). I am not sure wether is the fan or the hard drive spinning. I did a "top" but no process was high consuming. I also thought that maybe compiz could be responsable for it, so I disabled all the visual effects, but still no change.

Ubuntu :: No Sound 9.10 Karmic Koala?

I have read numerous posts about this subject, but being a novis in the Linux field, I cannot say that without explicit step by step instructions I am able to repair or tinker with anything under Ubuntu. In short, my sound has ceased to function. It did work for a period of time and suddenly no more. I have a 64 bit version of Ubuntu 9.1.

Or I go to Applications/Graphics/F-SpotPhotoManager the same thing happens: small window, big window, gone.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Koala 9.10 Unresponsive UI?

Apr 21, 2010

On Dell Inspiron 9200, with or without accelerator for NVIDEA graphics. P.S. I would like to give 9.10 a chance. have gedit and browser open (browser with the forum message being edited), then do the following:

1.This example demonstrates one problem (unresponsive single click) Use the System-->Preferences-->Mouse

Click repeatedly on the light bulb at 1 second interval ---> result: often the light does not turn on. Result: it appears that the click event does not complete. I have noticed that a mouse-out will cause the click to complete (specifically as in 2. and 3 after a brief moment (hopefully before the drag and drop icon appears).

2. Click on any icon, submit button, close, etc. takes many tries.

3. Click on any icon, panel button, link, etc. if you linger a moment a floating icon (a drag and drop hand).

4. Scrollbar button and action follow the mouse outside of the scrollbar. The scrollbar sticks - difficult to make scrollbar stop following the mouse.

5. Example, have two visible windows (for example gedit and the browser) From gedit move to browser by click on browser. ---> result takes forever to recognise the focus and click and go to the broser.

6. Unresponsive UI. In browser highlight text in textarea (with difficulty) then chose Copy (slow UI), from this window click on desktop's Applications (takes many clicks to open), from Accessories click on gedit (slow or takes more than one try), paste (speed of paste OK).

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount On Karmic - Macbook 2,1

Jan 30, 2010

Manually mount or fix my external hard drive. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive from Iomega. When I plug it in, a message appears that reads:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so".

Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received the following:

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdb'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Partition table entries are not in disk order

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount On Karmic, Macbook 2,1 Again?

Sep 3, 2010

Earlier this year I encountered a problem with my external hard drive; it would not mount automatically and I kept getting an error message. Last time I was able to fix it by typing in the terminal 'sudo fsck /dev/sdb2'. Once again it's not mounting automatically and I'm not even getting the error message. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drivefrom Iomega. Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received thefollowing:WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Ubuntu :: New Karmic Koala Instalation No Internet

Feb 24, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude D620 which came with Windows XP. I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on the laptop so it can dual boot but I can't connect to the internet.I have a dynamic IP allocated by my broadband service provider which I access by a wired Netgear DM111P router (not cable). It still works fine when booting up windows.I've read through lots of posts by others trying to find a solution as the 9.10 install has just been done and I've not changed anything.

My tentative assessment is the laptop, when running Ubuntu, is not communicating with the router as there seems to be no IP address allocated by the router.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Koala And Accelerometer, Hdd Protection?

Mar 10, 2010

I'm using FSC Lifebook S series, to be more specific S7210. I know from specs and from Win that it contains onboard accelerometer, in Win Vista it works perfectly, with FSC supplied "Motion sensor utility" it protects hard disk from damage during sudden shakes of notebook.

The question is - i couldn't anyhow find any note in Ubuntu that it is recognized and is used as it should be. So I'm wondering is it done automatically or it is not used at all? If it is working is there any way to check some status of it, or if it isn't how to get it to protect hdd?

Ubuntu :: How To Run System Check On 9.10 Karmic Koala

Mar 27, 2010

it has been a year since I've started using Ubuntu linux, and for being calm that everything is working properly, I would like to do a full system check. The only option I've found is on System=> Administration=> System Testing, but this wasn't what I was searching for (mainly because I don't know what is written there- I don't know enough for running this option). Is there something else I can do? maybe something through Terminal?I want to run such a check also because the system sometimes work slowly, and maybe something went wrong...

Ubuntu Networking :: CIFS VFS No Response For Cmd 50 Using 9.10 Karmic Koala

Feb 2, 2010

I was also having a problem with the Shutdown / Reboot sequence taking ages due to using WiFi, WPA2 and mounting SMB shares. I wasted about 4 hours digging around before I finally realised that the solution involved Upstart. 1. Open a terminal and enter:

Code: sudo gedit /etc/init/network-manager.conf 2. Just below the description line add the following:

Code:
pre-stop script
/etc/init.d/umountnfs.sh
end script

3. Save the script and attempt a restart. I don't know if this will work for everyone, or even what version of Upstart you need for it to work, but it cuts my shutdown time from about 2 mins to about 30 seconds.

Note: This has been working for me about 90% of the time. Occasionally though I see that the script ends prematurely due to the TERM signal and I end up with the 2 minute wait again. I've added the following to the /etc/init/network-manager.conf file:
