Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Files In Dual Boot( 10.04 And Mint)?

Nov 12, 2010

I have a dual boot ( Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux Mint), but I spend most of my time in the Ubuntu 10.04 partition. The point is that I have a huge files in the Mint compartment and I would like to gain access to those files from my Ubuntu 10.04 partition. I have tried samba and could not get the file sharing system to work. I had used samba when I was dual booting between Ubuntu and Windows and it worked but not in my present Linux dual boot.

Installation :: Dual Boot Mint On External HDD

Apr 19, 2010

I'm new to the world of Linux, but am intrigued by the variety and functionality it offers over Windows. I have an external HDD from which I would like to dual boot Linux Mint, with Windows Vista (64 Bit) remaining on the primary internal HDD. I know that my BIOS supports dual booting and booting from USB devices (my external HDD). Are there any specific dangers I need to be aware of? Is it as simple as putting in the installation disc and selecting my external HDD?

General :: Uninstall Mint 9 From Dual Boot Machine?

Jun 28, 2010

Recently, my Mint update informed me it had an upgraded kernel version of Mint 9 and asked did I want to upgrade. Me, not being an old hand at things Linux, upgraded. Instead of overwriting the older version, it put the upgraded version of Mint 9 BESIDE the older one. So now I have, actually, 4 versions of Mint 9 on my PC,(generic plus recovery mode for each) which is dual booted with Vista Home Premium.

I don't want this. I have had weird problems and hiccups since I upgraded. I want to get rid of the newer kernel version and use only the older one. How do I uninstall the upgraded version of Mint 9? I have tried to boot into the older version, but there is no desktop and I have to type on the boot screen and in the terminal. It wants commands I don't know how to give. How do I restore my older version of Mint 9?

I just want one version on my PC in the dual boot with Windows Vista. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this? If you give me terminal commands, please make sure they are copy and paste ready. lol.

If uninstalling involves deleting partitions and doing a manual partitioning and formatting, I'll need easy instructions for that also.

General :: Installing Mint On An HP Laptop With Windows 7 For A Dual Boot?

Mar 9, 2010

I got to the part where I'm supposed to partition Mint. I've got a 500GB hard drive, and I thought I'd give 300GB to LM--but I'm unclear about using ext2, 3 or 4. What about the swap file? Is that automatic?

General :: Can I Uninstall Another System Distro Directly Over Mint On Dual Boot

Feb 18, 2010

I think the title says it all really - I've installed Mint onto a Acer aspire 5315 laptop. Its a dual boot system using Vista Basic. Grub works perfectly and to be honest Mint is great. really enjoying playing and learning. My problem is that the laptop overheats when using Mint - the cpu fan doesn't cut in and the laptop shuts down to protect the system. According to a swift google this seems to occur with mint (possibly particularly with Acer's) and maybe with other distro's too. However I'd like to keep trying to see if i can find one that works.

So my rather obvious newbie question is can I just get another distro dvd and install this onto the partition containing mint thus deleting the previous install? If I did this would Grub show the new distro ok or would it keep searching for Mint. I have a back up so if all else fails I can reinstall everything but that will have to wait till I get home

General :: Mint 9 Menu Options Does Not Allow For Accessing Win. 7?

May 23, 2010

I managed to install Mint 9 on a Windows 7 system. It works except for one thing: at the Menu options, Windows 7 is listed at the bottom, Mint 9 at the top. I can log into Mint 9 but all keys are frozen. When I boot with Super Grub and other discs, I get the same result. All keys are frozen.Is there a way to edit my boot menu so that I can get dual boot.I know I can use Win. 7 disc, repair, then re-install Windows' mbr, but that would give me back my Win. 7 but no Mint 9. (By the way, I cannot install Ubuntu 10.4 or any other Linux; ;so far it works only with Mint 9)

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows 7 Shared Files?

Mar 20, 2010

I have two computers set up, one is running Ubuntu 9.04 and the other running Windows 7 Professional. I have a bunch of shared files from Windows 7 (which I am normally able to access from any Windows 7 or Windows XP machine on my network) but I can't access them from Ubuntu.I have tried going to Places > Network > Windows Network, but I receive the error "Unable to mount locations Failed to retrieve share list from server"I have also found another recommendation for accessing a windows server, via Places > Connect to Server, but I receive another error message there, "Cannot display location "smb://..." No application is registered as handling this file."Could anyone explain what my problem is and how I could fix it? I really wish I could figure this stupid thing out myself, but it's linux.. it's not meant to be understood by anyone >.<

Fedora Networking :: Can't Connect To Internet After Adding Mint To Boot Menu

Sep 28, 2009

I recently installed Fedora 11 onto my computer on top of Linux Mint. Originally I was using Mint's bootloader, but I'm ditching Mint soon for another OS so I'm migrating to Fedora's bootloader to make the transition easier. For a while I couldn't get Mint to appear on Fedora's Grub menu, but during that time I could still access the internet on Fedora. However, once I successfully added Mint to Fedora's grub menu, the wireless suddenly stopped working on Fedora (though it still works on Mint.) I can connect to the network on Fedora but it gives me the awesome "host does not exist" message when I try to ping anything. Any insight as to why this might have happened after I managed to successfully boot Mint from the Fedora boot menu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual-boot With Windows 7 - Retrieve Deleted OS Files?

Feb 23, 2011

I recently tried to install Ubuntu 10.10 on to my Windows 7 computer so that I could dual-boot it. I didn't want to mess about with partitioning and the lot so I just clicked Install inside Windows, assuming that it would install it and I wouldn't have to do anything. But after it installed I noticed that it had deleted all of my files and my Windows OS. I am wondering whether there is a way that I could retrieve my files, or if somebody could post some instructions so that this doesn't happen again.

Server :: Sharing Files From A Dual Boot Ubuntu/Fedora With Win7

Jan 26, 2011

I have one computer with windows 7 (computername = windowspc) connected through a modem router to a computer running Ubuntu 10.10 (computername = linuxpc). Had Samba setup and working between them.

Decided to check out Fedora 14 (computername = linuxpc). so set up dual boot on the on the Ubuntu box and installed samba. When Fedora is running Win 7 only sees shares for Fedora. If Ubuntu is running win 7 cannot connect to any shares stating a bad file path. I understand that both linux oses use the same ip address and thats probably were Win7 must have problems.

Ran nbtstat r in windows and was able to swap the situation around i.e. win7 sees Ubuntu but not Fedora.

I would like to be able to set it up so that when logged on to either of the linux oses I would be able to see shares from both partitions in Win7. Or if thats not possible, to differentiate them in some way so that Win7 would recognise which os was running and display the shares accordingly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Shrink Windows Partition With Unmovable Files In Dual Boot?

To install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7, I have to shrink Windows 7 partition C:. But due to some unmovable files, I cannot shrink as much as I plan by using Windows own shrinking tool. I guess many of you who have both OSes on the same hard drive must have similar experience.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get Full Control Of Win 7 Files (dual Boot) In 11.3 KDE?

Jan 11, 2011

I have Suse 11.3 KDE dual boot with Win 7. There is a Desktop Folder on the main screen, with one icon named "My Computer". when I click this icon, Konqueror opens a window with detailed information of the System along with Disk Information (detailed partitions of Windows 7). Once I select any one of these partitions, it opens the one said partition.

One thing I have noticed, if I "Right Click" a folder in this Win 7 partition, there is an option of opening that folder with Dolphin Super user Mode. After using this, I can edit the contained subfolders or files.On the other hand if there is a file (i.e. outside a folder), there is no option of Super user Mode and I cannot edit these files. at times I have to rename them or delete them. But for doing so I have to restart computer and go into Windows (which I don't like)is there any way of having a full control of Suse and Windows (permanently). I read the thread mentioned here: FSTAB - Editing Manually

General :: Share Files Between Windows 7 On A Dual/multi Boot Computer?

Jan 26, 2010

Just go myself a new computer and thinking of how set it up. I have win7 HP and will probably install at least some version of Ubuntu on it shortly to have dual boot. Might come other Linux distros too in the future. I have a 1TB HDD and my question is what's the smartest way to share files on all OS's? In what format?

I was thinking of ~100GB for Windows for apps and games etc. ~20-50GB for Ubuntu and some third partition, where I store my common files like media, pics, docs, downloads and stuff, taking the rest of the free space.

What filesystem should the shared partition be? Is there some smart way to get windows home directories and linux home directories to point to the same place on the shared partition or would it be recommended to just keep them separated?

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot With Vista And Ubuntu Lucid - Corrupted Files - Recover Data?

Aug 7, 2010

I'm running dual boot with Vista and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. for few days i was running Ubuntu only, downloaded some files and created some directories. few minutes ago, i switched to Vista to see something and i wanted to burn some of the files i downloaded using Ubuntu but couldn't find those folders.

i thought maybe its related to different file system or something so i switched back to Ubuntu and surprise! my folders are not there, instead i got a file, of unknown type with the same name as the folder had! in another folder case it's was an image (some print screen of my browser screen - Mozilla) and again with the name of what was the folder! first - what the hall had happened? second - can i recover my data somehow?

Ubuntu Networking :: Dual Boot With XP - No Internet Access

Jan 18, 2010

I decided last night it was finally time I look at Linux. I've wanted to for a very long time, but was not keen on the learning curve. Anyway, I did a dual-boot with XP, which had it's own issues, but which I figured out with some info. Now my problem is I can't access the internet from within Ubuntu. It's finding the hardware, I think.

Below is data gained from lspci, nm-tool, ifconfig, and lshw.
jason@jason-desktop:~$ lspci

Ubuntu Networking :: Can Connect & Share Dual-boot PC

Aug 13, 2010

I can connect & share my dual-boot PC with no problems under WinXPPro using wired or wireless. (I've another thread going trying to get the wireless-n usb adapter to work.) Two questions so I can get the wired shares to work. I want to copy beaucoup files from the Win7 PC to the dual-boot PC. When booting into XP, no problems. When booting into Ubuntu 10.04, nothing. I can see the Win7 PC but can't access it. My two questions then are these.First, is there some switch to enable fire & drive sharing under Lynx as there is under WinXP / 7? Second, how does one set the IPv4 address? Under WinXP it's one address and under Lynx it's another.
