Ubuntu :: Grub4dos Halt Doesn't Work?

May 29, 2010

Anybody here know anything about grub4dos? I'm building myself a multiboot flash drive using grub4dos and one of my commands on the menu, obviously, is shutdown. This should be simply "halt" but every time I launch that command, or if I type it into the grub4dos command line, the computer locks up and I have to do a hard reboot.

Ubuntu :: GRUB4DOS - Menu Entry To Run Memtest Does Not Work

Jan 30, 2010

I just finished an install with 4 OS's. DOS, XP, WIN7, and UBUNTU. They work fine no with problems. However, the menu entry to run memtest does not work, However on my other system it works. The failing system is an i7 and the working one is a Core Duo. Both have a lot of ram. The Ubuntu os was copied with GPARTED. So it is identical.The menu.lst was a copy/paste job and then the HDxx's modified as needed. Please take a look and tell me where I went wrong.menulst.txt

Ubuntu :: Load Up Gparted With Grub4DOS?

Jul 26, 2010

I built a multi-boot flash drive using the instructions here but unfortunately, those instructions don't include gparted, and I much prefer gparted to the partition managers that are included. How would I go about loading gparted with grub4dos? Either the zip or the iso version is okay with me, I just want to be able to load the live version of the program. I do know that it is included in the ubuntu livecd that I have loaded on the flash drive, but I prefer the standalone version.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub4Dos Freezes When Loading Initrd?

May 13, 2011

I am using grub4dos 0.44 but can't boot directly into Kubuntu. The bootup freezes at the step of reading the initrd. Can't copy 'n paste the exact bootup-message but it looks similar to this one, I found on another forum-thread:

Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0x06 [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0xcff87] Unlike the guy who posted the two lines above, I installed Kubuntu on an ext3-partition (hd0,5), (which is /dev/sda6 in Ubuntu) and without an own bootloader, since I wanna use grub4dos instead of grub2. The installation is fresh - the initrd-file shouldn't be broken. My menu.lst looks like this:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

Ubuntu :: Compiz Doesn't Work - How To Make It Work

Jul 29, 2010

I'm having trouble getting compiz to work on my Laptop. It worked for a while and then I turned on Shift Switcher and a message popped up saying..."The new value for the button binding for the action Terminate in plugin Shift Switcher conflicts with the action Zoom Window of the Scale Addons plugin. Do you wish to disable Zoom Window in the Scale Addons plugin?" I was given the option of Set Terminate anyway, Don't set Terminate, and Disable Zoom Window. I clicked Don't set Terminate and ever since the only thing that works in compiz are the bindings in the general options. I've used synaptic to completely remove and then reinstall compiz but the problem persist. Something else weird, all of the changes I made are still there, even after complete removal, but they don't work?

Ubuntu :: Unity Doesn't Work - How To Make It Work

Feb 16, 2011

I just recently (about an hour ago) installed Ubuntu Netbook edition on my old laptop, and I was greeted with the message, that unity could not be run due to some sort of missing driver...fair enough, I was then greeted with the default Ubuntu desktop, I installed all my needed software (wine, google chrome) and installed the missing display drivers. I then rebooted the system, and once again I am stuck with the default desktop, and not the Unity interface. I checked the software center, and it says Unity IS in fact installed.. And yet I cannot make it appear. So now I ask you Ubuntu veterans. How do I make it work?

P.S. I wiped the system of windows, and the computer is an old HP Pavilion DV6000

General :: Grub24Dos Gives Grub2 Capabilities In Grub4dos Package?

Feb 15, 2011

A kind fellow Linux enthusiast told me about DrummerDP project grub24dos.

Here is two links to it.

grub24dos announcement on Reboot
grub24dos on SourceForge

Iam not on that level so I can only trust his words for it. He start up on MsWindows and install it from that OS.

He recommend one do a back up first in case something unexpected happen No warranty.

The very good thing is that it gives grub2 ability to boot isos on a NTFS formatted HDD. Isos that one otherwise had needed to place on a Ext2 formatted partition and that could serve those who want to preserve windows for Gaming?

Software :: Syslinux Bootloader Chainloaded To GRUB4DOS? Ultimate Bootable USB?

Jul 14, 2010

if not please redirect to correct area. I will start by saying I know very little about Linux beyond simple usage. My question is about "Syslinux Bootloader chainloaded to GRUB4DOS"

Pendrivelinux has a really awesome utility, one that I have been searching to find for many years. It allows you to put multiple ISOs onto a single USB and selectively boot the images. Mast are live Linux OSs, or repair disks, there is even an option for a Windows install disk. The "menu" is configured for about 30 ISOs right now, and I believe it uses a Grub loader. The link below will take you to the wbsite that hosts the utility download link, lists all the currently supported ISOs, and has the very simple instructions.


Once you download the app. there is a file called "menu" that you can edit the list of installed images on the USB drive. I have put:

4-5 Live Linux ISOs
Windows 7 Install files
4-5 rescue CDs

on my USB stick. I deleted the menu items I do not use (a lot of them), and reorganized the menu to my liking.

I know NOTHING about how to figure out the Linux code language. I want to add the following ISO images to the USB, but I am unable to figure out how to write their use into the menu.

Hirens boot CD
Windows XP repair disk
Acronis True Image 2010 recovery disk

I have tried altering already made menus with no success, and I dont even know where to begin. If some of you might be willing to DL the utility, look at the menu structure, I would be very appreciative. I know that you will probably need the ISO images, but they are fairly common. While I am very new here, I am very familiar with forums in general, and would be happy to make a donation for the help, like I said, I have dreamed of such a multiboot solution for many years, and would love to see these added to the options, making it a truly ultimate bootable USB.

When I first turn on I get the windows boot manager where I can choose between openSUSE 11.2 installer (LOCAL) and Windows Vista. Selecting either has the same result of trying to boot the openSUSE.

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Halt (shut Down)?

May 31, 2010

I am trying to add an entry to grub2 to turn the computer off using the 'halt' command, but grub2 freezes and I have to manually reboot. I have tried both 'halt' and 'halt --no-apm', both with and without 'insmod halt' first. The 'reboot' command however works fine (even without 'insmod reboot') so it doesnt seem to be an acpi/apm issue. This was all tested at grub2's command line, so there isnt any problems with syntax in the config file. The laptop I am trying this on is an Acer Aspire One, I am using Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid), and a more or less default config for grub2 (GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu6) as far as modules are concerned.

Ubuntu :: Halt Followed By Filesystem Error, Recurrent?

Aug 30, 2010

The other they my laptop totally halted in the middle of a luks-encrypted external-hd copy operation or such.After a hard poweroff and reboot, the linux procedure would halt at the

Code:(initramfs) line and couldn't be pushed further. I booted with a LiveCD, ran sudo fsck /dev/sda1 and answered yes to a bundh of filesystem-fixing prompts. Yesterday the it happened again: freeze then incomplete boot with same error message. Do you have an idea of what can be causing it? How can I diagnose this problem?

I just accidentally clicked on my ubuntu drive when I was in PCBSD Unix and I had somehow glanced at a few things. When I tried, it didn't really let me in as much, but it said something about an access error and denial when I looked with the KDE Dolphin file browser.All I did was leave the rest alone and reboot but then got this when attempting to access Ubuntu:----------init: hwclock main process (366) terminated with status 29564.General error mounting file systems.---------- also got back into BSD and formally unmounted and rebooted again, but to no avail.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Comes To Halt In 30 To 45 Minute Video

Oct 13, 2010

On 10.04 64-bit, I've been noticing this weird error where totem comes to a halt after ~3/4 of playback in a 30-45 minute video, then it starts to play back again after about 10 seconds but it's a bit choppier. What could be causing this or how I can track down the issue? I'm running a nVidia GTX 275 with nividia-current drivers (195.36.24) if that helps diagnose anything.

Ubuntu :: Grub4Dos Error / Tried To Switch Back To Computer Control And Computer Went Black?

Jan 9, 2010

Here's the situation:

I have Ubuntu 9.1 with wubi and Vista on my laptop. I was playing my laptop through the TV, then I tried to switch it back to computer control and the computer went black. I had to hold to power button to restart, and suddenly grub4dos starts up when I try to launch ubuntu. I can still launch Vista. Is there anything I can do to save my system? At the very least, I would like to be able to copy data from my ubuntu system to my vista system. How can I do that? I can't find C:/ubuntu/disks. It doesn't seem to exist.

Ubuntu Security :: Something Is Trnsmitting Packets And Grinding Network To A Halt?

Feb 10, 2010

I have a small network with 4 users, a Win2003 server for LAN/security functions, and a Dell Blade server running Ubuntu 8.04.1 which runs as our web server on port 80. I manage the Ubuntu server with Webmin v1.42Yesterday, my users weren't able to access the internet nor were they able to receive mail, etc. and no one could access any of the website hosted on the webserver. However, the internal users could access each other's PCs and internal printers and devices - just nothing outside.

I began to troubleshoot: I could see a lot of activity on the Router/Firewall on the port connected to the Ubuntu server. When I unplugged the server, everyone could immedately connect to the internet. So, the problem was originating with that server.When I logged in to the Ubuntu server using Webmin, I checked System>Running Processes and right at the top of the list was the process:ID Owner CPU Command23184 www-data 98.1% ./s 7777When I drilled down on this process it said that the parent process was:/bin/sh -c ./s 7777I pressed the Trace Process button and it appears to be sending the following repeatedly:Time System Call Parameters Returnxxxx send 125,0123456789ABCDE,15,0 15So, I manually Killed the process and added a rule to my firewall/router to block an IP range that includes 174:120:164:186

A few hours later the same process stars again in Ubuntu,, effectively plugging up my pipeline to the internet and preventing access to the websites being hosted.It suspect that there is some kind of virus on my Ubuntu machine but have no idea how to locate and destroy it. I am relatively new to the Ubuntu world and would appreciate anyone's help immensely! I just don't know what to do!
