Ubuntu Servers :: Living On A USB Stick?

Apr 2, 2010

I am aware of the fact that Ubuntu can be installed and booted form a USB stick. No problem. What I wanted to know is if this year's Ubuntu is smart enough to not trash the USB stick with excessive writes to a specific sector.

While USB sticks are not expensive, if the OS is going to thrash them, it limits its usefulness.

OpenSUSE Install :: Living With A 11.1 System?

Mar 30, 2011

I've noticed that I no longer get security releases via Yast for my Opensuse 11.1. So I'm now running on out of date Firefox and Flash etc. However, my system is very stable, and I'm not really looking forward to wiping the disk and installing the latest version. How safe am I to continue using my 11.1 system?

Software :: One Command Line To Rule Them All (living Without X Via The Framebuffer)

Feb 26, 2010

I am a card-carrying member of the Church of the Command Line. I would love to do away with X altogether, and just use the virtual consoles. What's stopping me is, of course, media. Images, movies and web browsing. I know about the framebuffer, and it seems promising but still kind of complicated. From what I've read it looks like I'd have to recompile my kernel everytime I wanted to change the background image. Not a showstopper, but more work than I would like.

Anyway, this post is about the possibilities, and hopefully some hints on how to get started. I know images are possible, and that there are codecs for mplayer to output to the framebuffer. What about web browsing? I've gotten into my gmail via elinks before.. although I can't remember if I was using the standard view or basic HTML.. probably basic HTML. Are things like inline images, javascript, embedded video and flash even theoretically possible in a console browser at this point? Or am I just talking fantasy here?

And, any guidance on getting started would be most appreciated, especially with background images. It looks like mplayer just needs the right codec and it'll work (correct me if I'm wrong please).. so that doesn't seem too bad. But the background images seem kind of involved. The only eye candy I even remotely want on my screen is a nice background image with the text floating on top. How can I accomplish this via the framebuffer?

[Edit: also, I should have made the title more descriptive, but apparently I can't edit that ]

Ubuntu :: How To Set Up USB Stick To Be Boot-able

Jan 17, 2010

So I've been running Ubuntu in a VM environment for a while, seeing if I like it. I think it's something I'd like to have as the primary OS on my netbook, so I downloaded the latest Netbook Remix version (9.10). Problem is, I can't get the thing to boot from my USB stick. Before we get into any lessons on how to set up a USB stick to be bootable, and how to adjust the BIOS's boot priority... let me say that I've used this exact stick and this exact laptop in the past just fine. When my netbook came home from the store with WinXP on it, I created a Live USB using unetbootin v3.56 and made the stick bootable with a gparted-live ISO. I used this to boot from the stick and partition my drive in half so that I could load the Win7 RC onto the other partition. Everything worked great then. I blew away those partitions and went back to a single partition when I loaded up my full Win7 OS a few weeks ago.

I'm wondering if it's possible that Win7 does something special with the bootloader to prevent this stick from being recognized? I know that sounds kinda far fetched, but I have a vague sense of having read this somewhere, but I can't find anything along those lines now. Just to be sure, I went into the BIOS and took out both the CD and the HDD from the boot sequence, so the only thing in there was the "removable device". However, when booting from the stick in this configuration, I got a "please insert an operating system" type message. When I started this process, the stick was still in "LiveUSB" mode with the gparted OS - however, I didn't test it in Win7 to see if it would have booted from it. I just assumed that it would have since the last time I used this USB stick, it was to boot into gparted-live.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Run Unr 9.1 From Usb Stick

Feb 10, 2010

I copied the unr 9.10 iso to my usb stick fine using the program from pendrivelinux for ubuntu 9.1. I think it worked well, because it now has a ubuntu logo on the usb and says "install ubuntu netbook remix." When I get to the BIOS menu and to the boot options, I get a box which says three things: SDD slot, D: drive, and disabled (maybe talking about the D)When I press enter on the D: drive nothing happens. When I say to save configuration and exit it goes right to xp again. I have no idea what to do... I'm on an EEEpc 1005-HA running xp.

Ubuntu Installation :: 2 OS On One USB Stick?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm using an old netbook with Ubuntu Remix 9.04 and I thought it's about time I installed the newest version.Therefore I put the latest Ubuntu Netbook version on my 4GB USB stick with USB Startup Disk Creator.Furthermore I would like to have the Desktop version on the same USB stick. I tried but the second version (Desktop) seems to overwrite the first (Netbook). Is it possible at all to have 2 bootable versions side by side on one USB stick?

Ubuntu :: USB Stick Not Being Detected

Mar 15, 2011

I have this weird problem with my usb drive (Transcend 8 gb). It had been working fine for 2-3 months. But then all of my systems, except one stopped detecting this drive. Connecting the usb to these systems has no effect - no /dev file created and nothing shows up in dmesg and lsusb.

And on the one system (out of 5) where it works properly ,lsusb has this output:
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 8564:1000
// As seen here, there is no device name listed
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:0024 Hewlett-Packard KU-0316 Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 045e:00cb Microsoft Corp. Basic Optical Mouse v2.0
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I didn't do anything special with this usb, just using it as normal (data transfer etc). And no, I don't connect my usbs to Windows systems. I have formatted it, ran fsck but nothing worked.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert CD To ISO Then Run Off A USB Stick?

I am taking a Geology class this semester and we were assigned a CD that has an interactive program on it. I didn't like the access speed- especially when the narrator was supposed to talk. The DVD/CDRW drive had to spin up and... then the narrator spoke.I'm wondering if I can create an ISO image of that CD and then transfer it to a SD card so it's less noisy and less pokey than a CD.I only have Brasero at this point so I don't know if that program will be enough

Ubuntu :: Possible To Run Full Install From Usb Stick

Apr 18, 2010

i have a failing hdd and need to run ubuntu from a usb stick instead of normal.i dont need to know how to have a live image on a usb stick and install to the hdd cause i dont have a hdd that works (or the money to buy a new one) what i need to know is if there is a way for me to run a full featured install of ubuntu from my usb stick.by full featured i mean, able to save options and general usage and not the "try" feeling of a live os.

btw the reason for all this is having a computer telling me all the time since installing ubuntu 9.10 that i have many bad sectors.when trying to erase the whole hdd with dnk (dariks nuke somthhing) i get the same message so i dont think its a scam (read about a bug in 9.10 causing working hardware to look like failing)i really need some help.also if anyone knows if theres a way to make a bad sectored hdd work again.

Ubuntu :: Running Off A USB Stick; Very Slow?

May 28, 2010

Now that I'm on Ubuntu, I love the look of it. Navigating the OS menus is fast and programs are generally fast once they're running, but they're extremely slow when first opened (basic programs like Firefox, OpenOffice Writer, etc.). Is this because I'm running Ubuntu off of a USB stick? I don't know if I'd make the full switch if programs typically open this slow, but otherwise I love Ubuntu.
