Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Win XP And Karmic?

Jan 17, 2010

I like ubuntu and want to start using it more, but because of a work website that I need to access (developed for IE and only IE or Firefox running IETAB has full functionality) , I still need to use XP. Is it better to install Ubuntu on a partition or install within Windows and use Windows loader?? I see the two choices when using the Ubuntu CD I made. I already have XP Pro SP3 installed on my thinkpad T60 with dual core CPU and 3G RAM What are the advantages or disadvantages?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 - Dual Boot Karmic / Unable To Boot Into Archlinux Partition

Feb 15, 2010

After installing karmic with Grub2 I am unable to boot into Archlinux partition. Grub2 has removed the last line of the Archlinux boot stanza! It used to read:-


Following the Grub2 tutorials I have tried editing /etc/grub.d/40_custom as follows:-


But no luck. Only way into Archlinux is to get into the edit shell and manually add the missing line and remove other stuff not needed. I have spent hours trying to resolve this issue and I am fairly p----d off

Debian :: Grub Screen At Startup With Dual Boot Lenny And Karmic Koala

Feb 1, 2010

I have a laptop with Karmic Koala in dual boot with Lenny. I need to reinstall Lenny however if I do that I will loose Karmic Koala in the grub screen because of the new version of grub that comes with Karmic Koala. Which means that I will need to reinstall Karmic Koala after Lenny so that they both appear in the grub screen at startup. If I reinstall only Lenny is it possible to use Gparted to change the boot back to Karmic Koala and have them both in the grub screen again? Or is there another way around it?

Mar 5, 2010

AMD 939 Athlon 64
Biostar 6100T Motherboard
Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit

I did the install from the 64 bit edition Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala iso file and when I restart is gives me the no root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu. Unfortunately I don't know if it means the window installation or the Ubuntu one. I also don't know exactly how to get to it if it isn't the windows one. I also want a triple boot with Windows XP Professional SP 3 32 bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Karmic On Laptop That Has HP's On Chip OS Installed?

Mar 19, 2010

Has anyone tried to install Karmic on a laptop that has HP's new Linux on a chip OS installed? I think it's a scaled down Splashtop desktop and at least a portion of the OS is hardware based. I sure wonder what would happen if/when I try to install grub and Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Karmic 9.1 Never Completes Boot?

Mar 16, 2010

System has been working fine until recently bootups started taking longer and longer. Finally the other day after waiting 15 minutes or so I gave up.

I was able to log in with the xfce option (small command line with no windowing support). From this I observed that I could run all my programs (but without windowing support) and that the system seemed generally healthy (as did the hard drive).

I found /etc/Xsession and ran

sudo ./Xsession

This successfully loaded X (is that it?) rather quickly, but everything was
running as root. That's what I'm in on now.

So it seems that there's some kind of problem with an init script failing to load X at some point. Or it could be more complex.

Specifically, the computer presented the login option for the gui and I logged in as my non-root user. Then I got the swirling lights with the bird in flight background (dark blue). It never progresses beyond this, and the hard drive is whirring consistently until I shut the computer off.

When I insert the Live karmic CD,t will load up to the point of starting X then the monitor shuts down into "out of range". I hear the loading music in the back round but no X or display.

General :: Can't Boot Karmic

Apr 22, 2010

Anytime I turn my computer on, I get to the GRUB loading screen, select anything and then it shuts down again. I don't think I've really done anything that might have caused this? I only (re)installed it yesterday and the only things I've touched since then are ndiswrapper and wicd to get my internet working. Last night, I just let it idle out and now this. There are no dvds/cds inserted, nor any flashdrives.

Ubuntu :: Customize Karmic Boot Process?

Jan 5, 2010

I would like to customize my bootprocess on Karmic Koala.on <= jaunty i have been using the bootupmanager but on karmic it does not list all the processes and their state properly. so i think the internal changes within the karmic bootprocess have made bum inoperable. which is not that bad since karmic boots much faster but still i would like to make some changes to karmics boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Freezes During Boot?

Jan 11, 2010

I have been getting squashfs errors in the live usb created by various means(unetbootin,usbcreater,pendrive linux software).

There seems to be no error in my media or my hw. I have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions and the md5 sums of both match with the hashes given online. I havent yet tested with a compact disk, but i am sure the hw is working fine (it just booted 9.04 from usb..)

I have tried a few boot options [URL] to no avail. Also by turning off the quiet mode during boot, I see that the a few errors are "Unable to read from /dev/sdb" which should be the usb drive itself.

I will try a CD now, but my cd drive is not working. I hope to get a usb drive and boot from it.

Jan 25, 2010

Now, this is the case:

Yesterday, i tried to boot up my laptop but the battery was uncharged and it was unable to boot ubuntu karmic 64 bit. so i tried to plug the charger as soon as possible but when i looked at the screen, there was a huge black blank screen. so i had to restart it manually by pressing the power button. Now, i can see the grub screen, i can choose one of three kernels and the Windows. But only Windows can boot but the others doesn't. And also, grub timer does not work not. It does not count down to zero and autoboot the default os. I tried to reinstall grub but everytime , i got problems. Here is what i tried to do. In another try here, i failed again. In chroot, i could not "apt-get install" as it said i wasn't connected to internet (but i was), and in another try, it could not find p/rmonct /mnt/etc/resolv.conf.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Freezes On Boot Up During Splash Screen?

Feb 14, 2010

I set up a dual boot on my laptop a few days ago, between Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 (installed from Live CD). All the hardware is working fine.

Anyway, SOMEtimes, during the splash screen , the screen turns off (physically turns off) and the hard disk seems to stop. I cant do anything appart from force it to power down.

Yet sometimes, it boots up fine.

I want Ubuntu to work first time EVERY time.

Ubuntu :: Karmic 64bit Boot Hangs With 4GB In Machine?

Feb 19, 2010

I have Karmic 64 bit installed, originally with 2GB of memory. The motherboard will take up to 16GB, and I decided to double to 4GB. When I put in the 4 memory sticks (1GB each) and reboot, it gets past grub2, to the ubuntu "circle" symbol, the screen blacks out and that is it. No desktop, no further action that I can tell from the box, just a black screen. The video feed to the monitor, from what I get with the power light is gone and no activity on the drive.

If I take out one of the memory sticks, it boots happily up with 3GB and runs fine. Put the 4th back in, same behavior. I tried swapping out the old memory, putting in the 2 new sticks, everything works fine. Add in the other two (the old ones), the problem shows again. I thought I might be the last memory slot, so I removed the one from the 3rd slot, works fine. All in all, it works fine with 3GB, but hangs on boot with the 4GB.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Karmic Koala - Lvm And Grub2 Boot?

Feb 21, 2010

I am having problem in grub2 fails to boot the system. I get the error:

Booting from local disk...
GRUB loading.
error: no such disk
System setup:

It's a Dell XPS400 PC with 160 GB HDD. I have a non-LVM, primary partition for the boot file system (/boot) of 200 MB. I also have seven logical volumes (LVM partitions): six for each of the /(root), swap, /home, /usr, /var and /tmp, and one vbox_win_xp_base as a raw disk for running Win XP in the Virtualbox. I went on to configure all these without rebooting the system in between. Later I also updated to the kernel version 2.6.31._20. Next day I decided to reboot my system. But then the bootloader (GRUB2 in my case) won't able to boot it and gives the error mentioned above.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From FC To Karmic On Triple Boot Mac

Mar 14, 2010

I have a Core 2 Duo iMac that I had set up for triple boot using Fedora Core (probably FC8 )and GRUB, Windows XP Pro, and Mac OS X v10.5. Some time ago, I had to blow out and reinstall my Windows installation because it had developed errors, but this also blew out my GRUB, leaving the Fedora install non-bootable. Since I never really used FC on this machine much, I didn't worry.

Lately, I've acquired an hp Mini 110, on which I'm running Linux Mint 8 (Helena), and I'd like to upgrade my FC partition on the iMac to Karmic, but when I run the installer, it won't let me use all of the existing Linux partition, instead wanting to resize it to accommodate both FC and Ubuntu.

How do I make the installer simply replace FC with Karmic, using the entire existing partition? I'm sure earlier versions of Linux that I've used had a simple "erase all Linux partitions and install" option, and the "Manual" option doesn't appear to read the existing partition information (I was too afraid to go any further).

I ended up quitting the installer, which put me into the Live CD environment, where I used the File Browser to "Format..." the Linux partition, but when I went back to the installer, I ran into the same problem, and it didn't seem to matter if I unmounted the existing partitions or not.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Cd Won't Boot With Wd15ears Hdd Connected?

Apr 2, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu on a wd15ears hdd. Booting from the CD works fine when I don't have any drives connected, or some other drives connected, but if my new wd15ears 1.5TB hdd is connected, after the boot menu the pulsating ubuntu logo will pulsate for a while, and then I'll only see the blinking cursor in the top left corner of my screen. The hdd light is constantly on and nothing happens. Can anyone help me please? Is there a way to put the boot in verbose mode so I can see what fails, instead of seeing the ubuntu logo?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot After Karmic To Lucid Upgrade?

May 3, 2010

I made the mistake of trying to upgrade my Karmic (server) installation to Lucid earlier today, after which I've been unable to boot into my server. The server is on OVH, so I can't watch it boot, but I am able to access all of the data from the filesystems via rescue mode. I ran fsck and that came back clean. I also ran the boot info script, the results of which are below.

I know my best bet is to backup what I can and do a fresh install, but I won't be able to back everything up so trying to get this working would certainly be more convenient. I'm sure I'm leaving out useful information, so let me know and I'll post it.

Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
Boot Info Summary:
=> Lilo is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda
File system: ext3

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:

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 :: Boot Up Crashes After Latest Xorg Update On Karmic

Jan 21, 2010

My system is a Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 with Radeon 5770. The system was rock solid and everything working fine until the latest update I applied 30 minutes ago. The system is stuck on the little circle icon before the login screen.

I'm not able to ssh or telnet to the machine to check the log files. I edited my grub.conf a while back and I don't seem to be able to call up the recovery kernel. I can read up on the grub options.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic (wubi Install) Won't Boot After Dist-upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

i have Karmic installed with Wubi inside a Vista NTFS filesystem. Yesterday i did an apt-get dist-upgrade and Karmic never booted again. It won't even show the grub kernel list, it just shows some really quick text that vanishes before i can even figure out what it is and then drops to some sort of grub shell and then i can't figure out what to do.

I could boot a livecd and mount my karmic install and everything seems fine, the filesystem is clean and all that. But how do i fix it so it can boot again?

Does anyone here know wtf happened? Was there a bad upgrade or something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista / Dell XPS Won't Install Or Boot From Karmic Disc

Jan 17, 2010

I've never tried installing any other operating system on my desktop so I'm not sure if it's a 9.10 bug (probably not), but whenever I choose any of the options after the ubuntu cd has been loaded at startup it goes to a black screen with the underscore at the top, and promptly reboots. At this point in time I can just boot back into windows or get to the same selection screen off of the cd.I've tried burning 3 seperate cd's and at the moment and trying to boot them on my laptop (but not working... hrm). I'm thinking about redownloading the iso in a couple minutes.
