Ubuntu :: Installing Over Network From LiveCD?

Mar 14, 2010

I've asked this in another forum, but I'm not sure I phrased it very well. I have a desktop and a "server" at the house. The "server" is sitting across the room, with no keyboard or mouse. If I were to boot the server from a LiveCD, could I then get in with SSH and kick off the setup remotely? I'm getting "Connection refused" when trying to ssh in, so I'm guessing that the service is probably not turned on.

I checked into Reconstructor, and I think that may be the way to go, if I can figure out what I need to do. I'm thinking all I need to do is install an SSH key and start the service, then I can get into it from my desktop and proceed with the install.

Is this possible to do? Or is there a better way? I know I could lug the keyboard, mouse and monitor over to the other machine to do it, but that would mean that I couldn't do anything on my desktop (since that's where the keyboard, etc. would come from).

Ubuntu Installation :: Re-Installing Grub From LiveCD?

Jan 20, 2010

I was thinking of trying to install Window XP in a dual boot fashion but with the purpose of trying to configure wine to use it as it base instead of its normal setup. Only thing is Ubuntu is the sole controller of my laptop here atm and as you know installing XP will remove grub as boot controller. And while I know about SuperGrub I was wondering how, if possible,do I re-install grub from Karmic's LiveCD?

CentOS 5 :: Installing From An LiveCD?

Aug 12, 2010

In my CentOS Bible, written by Timothy and Christopher it refers to a one button that you can install CentOS with one button from the LiveCD, or from CentOS running from the CD and install to the hard drive? I pressed everything and nada, as most everything does not function it seems. What am I missing that may go along with preparing these Dell 2650's?

General :: Installing Additional Files From Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD?

May 31, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 from the LiveCD--smooth install, OS looks great-elegant.Now, since I have to use dial-up, I need to install additional files from the LiveCD that aren't installed by default:

[LiveCD]:poolmainwwvdial wvdial_1.60.3_i386.deb
[LiveCD]:poolmainwwvstreams [3 sw packages]

How do I get these files from the CD, and make them run on the Ubuntu installation? I've checked in the UI, and see various terms I don't yet understand. Do I extract the packages? Or do I open a pgm in Ubuntu, in which I specify the path to the files on the CD?

I'm going to use an external USRobotics 5637 USB modem that is supposed to work in Linux; just need to configure Ubuntu for this. I have the ISP DNS server numbers and modem is ready. I've seen online info, but I'm stuck at this very basic step.

Fedora Installation :: Any Quality Difference Installing From LiveCD Or DVD

Sep 6, 2010

I installed Fedoa 13 from a Gnome Live cd which I had to burn on a DVD since I had no cd Available. I just saw that there is still the option to download the DVD image. Since my installation is quite buggy I'd like to know if installing from a DVD has better outcomes.

OpenSUSE Network :: Transform 11.2 LiveCD On A Server?

Aug 23, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 (m8) Gnome LiveCD installed in my VirtualBox and now i want to move the schema to server side. I know, this is not normal, but it's fun - 'Have a lot of fun!', that is what i do in my study time.

So, how can i remove the packages useless for servers in a simple mode? My first idea uses category GROUP of a package, but this not work.

I can, for example, see the packages on System/Daemons, ok, but i can't see a list of groups inside System/ in a easy way.

And /usr/share/doc/rpm/GROUPS it's not full.

OpenSUSE Network :: Dell - Possible To Use WiFi With Latest SuSe LiveCD

Aug 28, 2011

I've been in doubt weather to install Linux open SUSE or Mint on my Dell inspiron 1501 laptop. Having tried the latest SUSE live CD (not finding a way to use WiFi) I decided to install Mint (Katya release). Now it turns out there's a bug on Ubuntu/debian related linux distros in connection with Dell Laptops, specifically on WiFi cards by Broadcom. (If you want to know more, check this Ubuntu forum thread and my comment on it.) My question is: are there any known bugs on Dell with OpenSUSE? An additional question would be: is it at all possible to use WiFi with the latest SUSE live CD?

OpenSUSE Network :: RaLink RT2561 / RT61 Working In LiveCD Not In Actual HDD Install

Aug 2, 2010

I am and Ubuntu user, and recently became interested in KDE 4, since it obviously looks much more modern that GNOME. I tried Kubuntu, but didn't really like it that much, so I downloaded openSUSE 11.3 and installed it on an old 40 GB IDE hard drive, leaving my existing Windows/Ubuntu HD untouched. The only problem is the Wi-Fi doesn't work, although it did work on the liveCD. Issuing the command gives the Wi-Fi card as being a RaLink RT2561/RT61. Does anyone know how to fix this? I really hope I can get this fixed, as I've heard some great things about openSUSE KDE, and would love to make it my primary OS, completely dumping Ubuntu. I'm using the 64-bit CD.

Debian :: Installing Network Printer - Able To Print To One Of The Network Printers From My Desktop

May 10, 2010

Total Newb here, sorry. I am pseudo-IT at work and have set up a desktop with Debian 5 (accidentally overwrote Windows in the process, but there you go). We are set up with network printers here (all Windows), and I was wondering how to go about being able to print to one of the network printers from my Linux desktop. Can I even connect to the Windows network with this desktop (it is hooked up)? Understand, I do NOT want to screw up anything on the network - they won't let me play anymore if I do. If I download the Linux driver, what do I do next?

Ubuntu :: Installing The Two Network Interfaces?

Feb 26, 2010

On my desktop having a NIC 3Com, connected to the company intranet and correctly working, I have added a second NIC ( Realtek RTL-8139) to connect a second small network ( three devices, instrumentation) using static addressing.The new board seems to be rekognized by Ubuntu, indicating "auto eth1" in the Network connections dialog. When I try to configure the connection, the "Apply" button is always disabled, therefore I cannot activate it. The command lspci shows that the board has been recognized but when i sent the

lshw -c network

the response is:

*-network:0 DISABLED

product: RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+

Ubuntu :: Network Not Working In Windows After Installing 10.04?

May 2, 2010

I was using before in dual-boot both Win7 and Ubuntu9.10. I've upgraded yesterday Ubuntu to v. 10.04 and since then a strange thing happened. My (wired) network works fine under Ubuntu. Internet connection is all right, download speeds seem normal,etc. I booted back into Win, and it informed me that my cable is not plugged in. Very weird, because in Ubuntu I had no problems. I disabled the device, rebooted, Windows re-installed the driver for me, but still, the same problem. As I was planning to do it, I even re-installed Win, but STILL, the same problem.

So now, I'm in the strange situation that I have internet connection under Ubuntu and a "please plug in your cable" message under Windows.

Ubuntu Servers :: Installing 10.10 Using Network Boot+TFTPD32?

Dec 10, 2010

I've come across TFTPD32 as an application to help install Ubuntu Server 10.10 on my 32-bit Gateway Solo 5300 so that I could use it as a test server. I am attempting this method since neither the cd drive or usb drive work properly (the usb only working after logging in). However, I currently have no OS after half installing Ubuntu and accidentally shutting it down after it deleted the hard drive's contents-BIG mistake. It currently only boots to a black screen and a flashing underscore in the top left corner.how to network boot because I have never done it before and I don't fully know what is involved. Below is some-things you might want to know about what I have in hand:

-Old Gateway Solo 5300 Laptop with no OS(32 bit, 256MB RAM, RJ-45 jack, 10 GB HDD)
-Acer Aspire 570Z with Windows Vista Premium 32-bit(3GB RAM, 120GB HDD + RJ-45 jack)
-STORED ON ACER ASPIRE=Ubuntu boot files, TFTPD32, Unetbootin.
-Blue Ethernet cable, Yellow crossover ethernet cable.
-Router and modem

In total, what are the steps to have Ubuntu Server 10.10 edition succesfully installed on the old Gateway.

Ubuntu :: Installing Starbase Wlan Usb Network Adapter?

Nov 24, 2010

I have found instructions but they are not working. I am new to Ubuntu and have only had a few classes that dealt with Fedora and CentOS. So I am rather new to Linux in general. The drivers say they are compatible with linux kernel 2.6 and later so I am going to assume they should work with ubuntu--am I correct in this assumption? If so, when one installs anything in ubuntu should one be set as the admin?

Networking :: Installing Ubuntu Botched Network Adapter?

May 18, 2010

On my desktop, I have Windows 7. I just also installed ubuntu on a partition in order to dual-boot. The installation worked fine, however now I cannot use the internet on either os. I have a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller On Windows 7, the LAN flashes from "Enabled" -> "Identifying" -> "Network cable unplugged". It does this on a seemingly continuous loop. When I disable it, it will not let me enable it. It says it can't start. Also, I uninstalled and re-installed the driver for my ethernet with no change.On Ubuntu, when I try to do "ifconfig eth0 up" and "dhclient eth0" I get the message "No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping."

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Samsung 2851ND Printer On Network

Feb 11, 2010

I bought a new Samsung ML-2851ND. I intend to connect it via the ethernet port is has. Under Ubuntu you cannot just plug and play. To set it up you need to connect it via a USB cable (Ubuntu will have all the needed drivers to operate as soon as you plug it in). Then you can go into the advanced settings for the printer and set up the network settings with the right gateway, subnet and IP address. Once you do this you can http into the address and play with all the other settings. Please note that Samsung have fantastic Linux support and you can download the driver etc here: [URL]

All options are supported (1200dpi, duplex, toner save etc). Kudos to Samsung for making a Linux friendly product. This is the second Samsung I have and I bought it because the first worked so well with Linux. If I need to buy another Samsung are my first preference.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Network-manager-openvpn - Emacs ?

It's been a while since I meant to resolve this emacs-related issue when installing basically any package.

Since I really need network-manager-openvpn, I decided to finally try and ask.

This is a known bug I believe, with no fix if I understand well. My question is: is there a way to go around it (instead of fixing it)

Here it goes : when installing a package (in this case, network-manager-openvpn), emacs gets in the way like this:


And the package is not installed.

I have already tried uninstalling emacs. Doesn't work...

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Network Manager Without Internet Connection

Jan 17, 2011

I've read a lot on the internet about various ways of doing this but i've been unsuccessful each time. Basically what i've done is accidently un-installed network-manager because I was having trouble staying connected on my WPA network. The easiest way of reinstalling it I know of is using the CD but I don't have a CD ROM drive and the pen drive I used to install it I no longer have.

I tried using a program called Keryx but you need python installed and from some reason this doesn't come with ubuntu 10.10. I've also downloaded the .deb packages but I still need to download 200kb which is a killer. I've also downloaded it from here too [URL] but the install file makes no sense to me as i'm not a massive linux user. One last thing reinstalling isn't really an option as i've already put a lot of time into setting up this computer.

General :: Installing Ubuntu With Realtek Network Driver Rtl8168?

Jan 25, 2011

I have been having trouble with the install of Ubunto in general. First problem is that my realtek network drivers rtl8168 are giving me some problems. I have followed advice from other threads for disactivating the NIC and disconnecting the power for 10seconds. This works in that Ubunto can recognize the hardware (hardware active), but it says it is not in use. Furthermore, I try to define the IP address manually and it does not allow me to press apply. Therefore I cannot connect to the internet.

I though I would try a fresh install of the latest Ubuntu. I did not have the internet connected (due to drivers). After the partitioning section (I partitioned over Ubunto 9.10), on the screen where it says select Username, computer name etc. some files were loaded, and at the end it says �ready when you are�but I was not able to move forward. I don�t now why. Ultimately I reboot the computer Now I get this message upon booting (I am still booting from USB)
