i wanted to fix splash screen, to be in 1680x1050 resulution, so i've found this: [URL].... After restart i don't have Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic, just Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic (recovery mode) My grub.cfg
I installed Fedora on a separate partition and during the install prompts forgot to uncheck the Grub installation. So, Fedora installed with Grub 1 (imagine that) although I was able to find instructions to upgrade it to Grub 2 (plus it recognized all the OS on the computer). So far so good, I don't have a preference whether Fedora's or Ubuntu's Grub is installed, however the Ubuntu Startup Splash screen is messed up, ie. a simple purple background with "Ubuntu" in system fonts. Is there a way to fix this back to the graceful default splash screen? Can I change back the Grub to be Ubuntu's?
Since updating my graphics driver on ubuntu 10.10, My splash screen has been inconsistant and messed up. Sometimes ill get random command lines mixed in with the usual splash, sometimes the splash wont show and it will just be black till the desktop appears, sometimes it flashes on and off. I originally tried fixing the resolution and just made the problem worse. Then I tried installing a new splash via gnome-look.org, but it just made my shut-down splash blank and didnt effect my splash at startup. I just want the original splash that ubuntu is supposed to have.
If I re-install Grub 2 from the live CD should that reset all the personalisations such as as splash screen and colours in the Grub splash to default? In my case they are not resetting. I would expect them to revert to the default black/white you get when initially installing the OS. the Grub timeout to be a lot less than its supposed to be? e.g. the default timeout setting of 5 seconds is more like 2 or 3 in reality, and when I set my prefered value to 2 seconds it results in being about 1/4 sec or so.
How do I do that ? Currently I have Kubuntu/Mint KDE installed as my main and only OS so the GRUB splash is disabled by default, how do I enable that (so I'm able to change the boot commands to go to single user mode).?
I have an ATI Radeon 5730 HD graphics card. I know the open source drivers for ATI cards do not do well with the Plymouth splash. So now I am having a text based splash and a really horrible tty resolution. A few months back, I was running Lucid on a Laptop with nVidia card. I had the same problem then and I posted in Ubuntu forums and was directed to a page where some method was given to fix up the issue. I don't remember exactly but it had something to do with grub, probably explicitly telling it the graphics card parameters and forcing it to load graphical splash.
However, shortly after that I installed Maverick on the same laptop and tried to hack it with the same method... It didn't work with Maverick and my system refused to boot and kept going dark right after the grub menu. I posted in Ubuntu but the reply was a little bit late and I had to sell my laptop.
Then I bought a new one, with the mentioned ATI card... Now I have the same problem and I want to fix it but I don't want to try that method which caused me trouble last time. I know it doesn't work with Maverick and I don't wanna go there. But I am sure a workaround exists. I googled it and found the same old thread which I am weary of. Does anyone know of such a method which works with both ATI and Maverick?
I noticed that after making my build in suse studio my system freezes immediately after GRUB ( Normal or Failsafe) boot splash screen. I also noticed that this happens only with the specified kernel below. I'm not sure when using Kernel 2.6.37, one had the same problem. I never used it. The original kernel 2.6.34 had no problems such as the one I have described. My systems has no further problems only that it takes several restarts to go past the "Freeze". Below is a list of my system specs:
openSUSE 11.3 Kernel-pae 220.127.116.11-4.1 from Kernel Stable. GRUB 0.97-174.1 from openSUSE 11.4 Upstart 0.6.5-33.1 xorg-x11-server 7.6_1.9.3-142.1 from X11:xorg 11.3 repo.
The GRUB from openSUSE 11.4 has been very stable and non-problematic. I will be buying an Intel core i5-2500K in a few months that's why I need the latest kernel and XOrg-X11-server. What could be causing the freezing?
I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, and on the start-up after I pass the GRUB it goes blank for a minute then briefly shows the splash for 5-10 secs and then jumps to the login screen. Also the screen is offset by about 10-15 pixels but from the login screen onwards it is centred. (It's also like this for if I'm in recovery mode) How do I fix this and Im wondering if it is a hardware problem?
I recently installed Ubuntu Studio and after an update the standard Plymouth splash screen began to show. I tried changing it back via the "sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth" method but I am getting a blue kbuntu splash screen instead of the ubuntu studio splash.
I've trawled the internet but can't seem to find the exact same issue, so I've made a new thread. So, I installed Ubuntu onto a 160gb drive. I have other drives in the system, but I disconnected them so that the system drive would be sda. Ubuntu installed perfectly with no issues whatsoever. I connected the other drives in the system, and again it booted up perfectly (although I can't remember whether the 160gb drive remained as sda or became sdd). Then I attached some extra drives temporarily to do some data shuffling.
This moved my system drive to become sdf. My computer booted fine multiple times like this, but when I was finished with the drives I rebooted and suddenly everything broke. For some reason my ubuntu installation showed up in the GRUB twice, and neither of them booted. So, I popped in the Live CD (which I'm using to type this post), and decided to update the grub. I chrooted into my system drive and ran update-grub, but it simply returned something like this:
I received the Ubuntu CD by mail the other day and tried to install a dual boot with it. I first tried it out by running from the CD and the first problem I had was the screen froze after the splash screen. So I lurked around for a bit and found out that I can press any key on the screen with the keyboard and person to get to a different screen. At this screen I entered "F6" and then entered "nomodeset", this allowed me to pass the splash screen.
Next, I got into Unbuntu but I found out that the keyboard and mouse weren't working, so I lurked again and found out that I have to enter "noacpi" (sorry if I got that wrong, I forgot the name ). I ran by CD once more and everything worked, so I decided to finally install it next to my Vista. However, after installing it goes straight to the splash screen, and the freezing happens again. The screen where the keyboard and the person are not showing up so I have no idea how add the "nomodeset" and "noacpi". So my question is, how do I get to the screen where I can add both those things? Also, is there a way to add it permanently so I don't have to keep pressing F6?
So, I had Win7 and Ubuntu 10.10 in dualboot and after upgrading to 11.04 I managed to screw up GRUB, it didnt boot into Win7 anymore. After that I got rid of both ubuntu and swap partitions and merged them to Win7 partition via Gparted and made a clean installation of 10.10 again next to existing Win7 hoping to fix GRUB and be able to boot into Win7, but now when I try to boot into Win7, I only see '_' blinking on top left and nothing happens, Ubuntu works fine.
I just started using Ubuntu 10.04 for development reasons and installed Ubuntu on a seperate harddrive with dualboot option with Windows 7.Today Win 7 got an update and I mysteriously got bumped back to the grub screen after selecting Windows boot option, but my Ubuntu was ok. After that I probably did the worst I could, and googled the problem and tried out some years-old advices which messed up my ubuntu boot as well.I am currently using my computer through Ubuntu Live Usb.
Out of nowhere Ubuntu (intrepid, I believe) has stopped loading for me. When it attempts to load gdm the screen starts flashing at the splash screen and then eventually dumps me to the terminal. From there I can login without any problems but can not get the GUI to load.
When I run sudo gdm-binary it does the flashing splash screen again and then spits out the error message: WARNING: Unable to find users: no seat-id found. Then a few warnings about longest graphic displayed 2.5xxx seconds I tried running sudo dpkg-recondifigure gdm and relaunch gdm as above and it did the same thing.
I was not able to successfully connect to my wireless network through the terminal to try to update in the hopes of that fixing the problem. Perhaps someone can give me instructions on how? (I have tried but can not figure out how to initialize wlan0).
Or, is there something I can do from my installation CD?
I have been running 10.04 quite successfully, when I upgraded to 10.10, I have a problem with the newer kernels. If I let it boot into the latest one 2.6.35-23, I get the Ubuntu 10.10 splash screen for a second then a blank screen, same with 2.6.35-22. I have to run with 32-25 to get it to load the gui.
I have an AMD Sempron 2800, 1.6GHz pc, but I'm not sure if it's running 64bit.
Today I tried to boot up Win 7 but it appeared "BOOTMGR is missing" error. I boot from windows dvd, selected repair but it didn't found my windows install. I have to use rebuildbcd - didn't work, then mark my partition as active - I figured out that it was active and I marked it as inactive and now grub is also broken and I'm using live cd.
Been trying to solve this using Google for a while. Well, I recently did: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Now, whenever I boot up I get "Error #15: File not found."From what I've gathered, something is wrong with my menu.lstI've tried several things to fix this, but I can't figure it out.
I have used openSUSE for a long time, but was trying to install Kubuntu 10.10 in addition to opensuse 11.3 and Windows 7 on a Gateway desktop (1500 GB hard disk & an external drive with 1000 GB. From the CD with the isoimage I got the live version and then decided to press install. I chose to follow the suggested choice of partition: About half of the external drive (500 GB) was allocated to Kubuntu while the internal hard drive contained Windows 7 and opensuse. Everything went well until I was asked to restart the computer. I got a black screen with the message:
error: no such device: 64e3ffcl-c003-482a-87f3-89489e5e067d. grub rescue> At this point the only command that will not respond with Unknown command .. is 'ls' which gives: (hd0) (hd0,msdos9) ... (hd0,msdos1) (hd1) (hd1,msdos2) (hd1,msdos1) (fd0) (fd1)
I am now ***completely lost***. The only step that gets me out of this screen is ctrl-alt-del which causes a reboot and brings me back into the same situation. The ***computer is useless*** until this is resolved.
I just did an upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 and can not boot to OpenSUSE any more. That happened when the first reboot was starting after finishing the upgrade from the DVD. I tried to find the issue and use the repair system with no luck yet. Now I get no gfx for grub
The only thing I managed is to add the windows boot section for windows but I can not seem to boot to opensuse. device.map:
I installed Docky, and docky has taken part of my screen. I have 80% of my screen layout. I do not know how to get back my full screen. how to get my full screen? worst case scenario, I do not mind un-installing Docky, but do not know how to do this.?
First off I'm loving my ubuntu experience on my other devices. My netbook and other laptops run wonderfully. I'm trying to get my HP dv6700 up and running but I'm having trouble right out of the gate. When I boot up on the CD the screen becomes "messed up". I can actually still see what is there, I just see basically three copies of everything, almost like it is out of sync. I assume this is a graphics card driver issue but how can I resolve this when it does it upon the installation screen? I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04.1.
My screen gets all messed up (pixelated) for about a second when starting Maverick10.10. It first started when loading Blender2.56. Can someone explain to me what maybe causing this as I don't even know if it's a graphics card issue or not. I tried searching on the net for people with similar problems but couldn't find anything. Radeon x300 graphics card using the open source drivers.
After a lot of headache and time I was finally able to get Ubuntu 11.04 64bit installed along side my Windows 7 64bit installation. The whole process was hindered by the screen resolution being really off, looked like this LINK (aspect ratio of (16:10) I believe it was). After much fiddling i was able to get the installation started hoping that in the end it would let me set the res. correctly once it was installed. About 75% of the way done it threw an error saying there was either a problem with the HDD or the CD, I know my HDD is fine, so I booted up windows and set up my USB thumb drive as the installation device, Unbootable.
My next attempt i hooked the laptop to my internet via cable and started the installation again, this time i found that I could set the res of the LiveCD (which was a pain in the neck) and this time Ubuntu installed and upgraded and seemed all sorts of happy! Once the PC rebooted and i selected to boot into Ubuntu, the(what i suppose is) login screen pops up but the resolution is messed up again and this time I can't navigate at all. I've tried just typing in my password and hitting enter as i can see that it is by default selecting my user name to login with.
