Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx On A Netbook - Cannot Boot

May 9, 2010

Is there someone from Dallas, Texas, USA area? I've got a friend there with lucid lynx on a netbook - and she says something's gone wrong with it - she cannot boot. Maybe someone could maybe somehow meet with her and see if there is a possibility to fix it? As i don't really know what's wrong but I am on another end of the world and have no chance to figure it out.

Ubuntu :: Ubuntu Netbook VS Lucid Lynx?

Nov 3, 2010

I am going to be installing Ubuntu on a dual partition HP 13" notebook. Would I notice a significant difference between the two OS's on my notebook. I did a search and can't really determine what the advantage of the current netbook release has over plain old 10.04. I want a stable setup.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Lucid Lynx To Boot

May 18, 2010

I am trying to install Lucid on my Laptop but can't get the live cd to boot correctly. At the moment, it's giving me a purple screen with a white logo at the bottom, then a black screen with the underscore character blinking, and then nothing. (I have an HP tm2, with a USB DVD/CD drive. 64bit intel core 2 duo. I am using the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop AMD64 .iso. I also tried the i386 .iso)

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx 10.04 Live CD -- No Boot Menus

May 6, 2010

I just downloaded the Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS Install CD for the desktop. I am concerned that I have downloaded the wrong ISO or that the CD that I burned is not behaving properly. Unlike all of the other Ubuntu "Live CDs", this one doesn't offer you a choice of what Ubuntu does at Boot-up. There's no menu that asks what you'd like to do. This CD doesn't give you choices like:

- Test Drive Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer
- Install Ubuntu
- Test CD for Errors
- Test Memory
- Boot from Hard Disk

Instead, this CD just boots right to a Gnome desktop. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but it turns out the the CD is performing some actions behind my back that I don't like. All that I wanted to do was to check the CD for errors to make sure that it burned properly. I didn't want it installing on the system where I was doing the burning. Instead of giving me options at boot, the CD automatically loaded Gnome, and then proceeded to mount all of the drives on my system, and then attempted to establish connection to IP address 91.189.90.132. I didn't like that. Luckily my firewall is secure enough that it stopped this unauthorized outbound data traffic dead in its tracks. I used reverse DNS to look up the owner if IP address 91.189.90.132. Here's what I found:

Code:

http://whois.domaintools.com/91.189.90.132
IP Information for 91.189.90.132

[code]....

Is this a Live CD, where you have some options about what to do at boot-up, or is this only an install CD? This information isn't clearly spelled out on the download page. this LiveCD taking control of my computer, mounting my drives, and then establishing contact with Canonical Ltd., without even giving me a menu option before doing so.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Lynx Takes Too Long To Boot

May 22, 2010

I installed bootchart and uploaded an image of my latest boot on imageshack: [URL] but I do not know really how to interpret it. Bare in mind that I did not use to have this problem while running Karmic...back then the OS started twice as faster as it does now after the update (now it takes at least 75 seconds to boot) .

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx Will Not Boot After Firefox Updated

Sep 17, 2010

Problem occurred after attempting to update firefox and configure evolution. Attempted to update firefox last night, it froze, attempted to open the system monitor to end the unresponsive process, and got a message saying the system was unable to support a new process because it couldn't fork. Did a forced reset, and the following now happens upon starting up. After selecting ubuntu (as it's a dual boot system with Windows XP) at the grub loader, blank screen, to this:

Code:

mount: mounting dev/disk/by-uuid/5b24d4b5-9b8d-4608-9387-0d92756dcdd8 on root
failed: invalid argument
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: no such file or directory

[code]....

It will not run recovery mode, and I have no bloody what it means by init=bootarg.

EDIT: Nevermind- I'm going to try the methods listed in [URL], and hope the gods of fsck smile upon my lowly hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx Won't Boot. No Recovery Option On Grub2?

Jul 6, 2010

After a lot of updates yesterday I have found that Lucid will no longer boot, I just get a blank screen that has a cursor flashing in the top left corner. I can't boot into recovery mode to see what the issue(s) might be because I took that option out when I ran update-grub.My question is this, is there a way to run update-grub -either from a live-cd or grub-rescue mode- that would put the recovery boot option back in? I have already edited the /etc/default/grub file to comment out the field.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Default Kernel After Upgrading From 9.xx To 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Jul 21, 2010

after upgrading to lucid lynx ubuntu doesn't boot with the new kernels 2.6.32-22-generic and 2.6.32-23-generic (also in recovery mode). But it's does boot with the previous 2.6.31-21-generic kernel. At the time i was hoping to wait it out, but a new kernel has come and the problem persisted. I've been trying to find a solution for this but somehow, amid lots of failed boot blank black screen threads, i didn't relate to any solution. The boot seems to go well until a pixelated logo appears (before the login screen), then goes to a blank black screen and there it stays stuck with no remedy. Looking into dmesg logs - albeit some differences between 2.6.31-21 and the newer 2.6.32-23 - the failed boot seems proper in both logs. In Xorg logs the differences are bigger but i cannot pinpoint a source for this problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multi HDD Dual Boot - Vista + Lucid Lynx - GRUB ?

Apr 27, 2010

I've got a machine that I'd got 9.10 on, that I've now upgraded to Lucid Lynx - and I'm having the same problem with dual boot (or lack thereof) that I was having previously.

Rough scenario is:

(Original Vista machine had)

C: Windows Vista OS + Windows software, etc.: 500GB - single NTFS partition - SATA drive

D: General dumping ground for data. 500GB SATA drive. Was single NTFS partition, now shrunk to install Ubuntu.

So is now:
- NTFS partition (containing general rubbish)
- Ubuntu / partition
- Ubuntu swap partition

... and then 3 x 1TB SATA drives making up an (Intel ICH9R) FakeRaid RAID5 array - that Windows can happily 'see' and use, but I don't care about Ubuntu having access to it or even seeing it.

Lucid Lynx is installed to /dev/sde6 (IIRC) - but when I boot the machine just boots straight into Vista.

I've done what I can to try and get GRUB correctly installed - to the point that right now I probably have it splattered just about anywhere and everywhere.

So - now - the machine boots and simply presents me with "GRUB Hard Disk Error" and stops...

I can fix this by running the Vista repair, with a fixmbr etc. and putting the MBR back to 'normal' on the first boot disk (/dev/sdd in this case). The machine then just boots straight into Vista.

...or I can boot into Ubuntu (or Vista) by booting off a Super Grub Disk (CD) and selecting "Boot Linux" (or whatever it is) - and it correctly boots Lucid Lynx from /dev/sde6

Ideally I want a proper GRUB dual boot menu - but I just seem to be getting into more and more of a mess!

Bootlog below will show what sort of mess I'm in:

Ubuntu :: Rename And Delete Lines In Boot List (GRUB 2) - Lucid Lynx

Aug 28, 2010

how to change (rename, delete) lines from boot list in grub 2, Ubuntu 10.04? For example, when I boot my pc, I have a boot list with options "Ubuntu 10.04", "memtest" and "Windows 7". I want to delete "memtest" line, as I don't need it, and rename "Windows 7" line to, for example, "Windows 117". How can I do that? Where I should look and edit? In old grub it was enough to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, but in Ubuntu 10.04 there is no such file and other grub2-related files (like grub.cfg) do not contain this info to rename or delete lines. So, I can't figure out what to do.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome-wm Doesn't Start At Boot Time Automatically After Upgrading To Lucid Lynx?

May 14, 2010

I just did a distribution upgrade on my laptop from 9.1 to 10.04, and it went fine for the most part except this issue. After it boots up, I don't see any window titles/scrollbars/borders and on clicking the icon for "Show desktop" on the bottom left I see the following error message: "Your window manager does not support the show desktop button, or you are not running a window manager."

After googling a bit, I realized that gnome-wm is not starting automatically and so I have to manually start each time to see the windows working properly. Can somebody tell me if there is a way to make sure that gnome-wm starts automatically? I know I can put it in my .bashrc but I want to do it the correct way if possible. If not, I will have to go with that workaround

Ubuntu :: Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 In Lucid Lynx ?

Apr 20, 2010

Quote:

The new Wacom Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) doesn�t work in Ubuntu Lucid out-of-the-box. You need a newer kernel module than the one that comes with Lucid by default. It�s pretty easy to get it working though, you just need to know how.

First, install some compiling tools and header files:

Code:

Code:

Now unpack, configure compile and install it:

Code:

# I know this is the wrong version, but it's the highest available and it works

Code:

The tablet should work now. You can also add the module name to /etc/modules to automatically load it on boot.

He also says (and I can confirm) that the gray lines are the new borders of the tablet. A little annoying, but I imagine one could configure that, too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Bluetooth Under Lucid Lynx?

Apr 30, 2010

I have tried out Lucid Lynx Beta 1 back in march. During the installation I was announced that support for bluetooth was dropped. I installed anyway, thinking it would be back in the Final Release. Meanwhile (between March and April) I reinstalled Karmic because I really needed the bluetooth. I can see in the upgrade that bluetooth still isn't available. What should I do about this? Is there a way to keep Lucid Lynx and bluetooth? Or will I have to stay on Karmic until the end of times?

Ubuntu :: (10.04 Lucid Lynx) USB Keyboard Not Working?

May 17, 2010

I've got a generic USB keyboard (not wireless) that works perfectly on WinXP, the BIOS and the GRUB boot menu. As soon as Ubuntu 10.04 loads, however,he keyboard stops working. Tried different ports, still nothing. I haven't tested on previous versions of Ubuntu or other Linux distros. A PS/2 keyboard works great on Ubuntu except the one I have is broken, hence why I'm using this USB keyboard. Any ideas on how to fix this? It's the only thing holding me back from leaving Windows for good. lsusb:Quote:

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Lynx Hangs On Login?

May 20, 2010

When I try logging in using any user name, ubuntu just returns to the login screen. I cannot actually log in. I used the recovery mode to create a new login with password 123456, and the same thing happens. What could it be? Ubuntu worked just fine for a while, then DKMS started causing problems, I had errors with upgrades, software installs/uninstalls, then my sound went. I found a great fix for the sound (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting), the sound came back, but then I could not log back in again. I cannot find any help for this issue, and had to install 9.10 Karmic Koala, and that's what I have been using for the past couple of days.10.04 has been fairly buggy for me and I am considering staying with 9.10, or going to another Linux distro.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx - Keyboard Not Recognised?

Jun 1, 2010

I have just updated ubuntu from koala to lynx via reloading the synaptic repositories, and after having restarting, to boot into lynx, found that my laptop's keyboard doesnt work, none of the keys are reponding at all, which is odd as I have never had this problem with my laptop before.. I thought this might have been a (semi) common problem with lynx, but after a few searches, have not found anything similar to this problem..Does anybody have any idea what might be the problem here, I can still use the laptop to do things via the mouse and even access the internet and grab text and paste it for things, but obviously would like my keyboard back (i didnt write this on my laptop!) I am 99.9% sure it is not a hardware problem

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Touchpad In Lucid Lynx

Jun 13, 2010

I don't know how many has had this problem, but I understand I am not the only onehe problem is that after using synclient to disable the touchpad in 10.04 it would enable itself, seemingly, at random.Well, what I found was that unchecking the "Disable touchpad while typing" feature in "System->Preferences->Mouse->Touchpad" will fix the problem.Apparently the system does not recognize that the user has deliberately disabled the touchpad. And so it will reenable it when the user is "done typing".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Past 60 Hz With ATI & Lucid Lynx?

Sep 19, 2010

I've recently built a half-new computer and installed Lucid Lynx on it.I managed to get everything else working and even got the ATI drivers installed. However, I can't get above 60 Hz on my old CRT monitor - the ATI driver controls have 60 as the highest selectable refresh rate. The preferred 1152x864 screenmode works fine otherwise.

Here are the known specifications:

Monitor horizontal refresh: 30-86 kHz
Monitor vertical refresh: 50-150 Hz
Known working display mode on earlier graphics card: 1152x864, 85 Hz.

My motherboard (with integrated graphics) is the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G AM3. The GPU is Radeon HD 4250.The ATI drivers seem to have "taken over" the xorg.conf, so I don't know where to input any values.

Ubuntu :: End Admin Privileges Before 10 Min.s Are Up In Lucid Lynx?

Nov 12, 2010

I recently installed Maverick Meerkat on a hand me down laptop. And noticed that when I entered the password for admin privileges to install from the update manager, a key icon appeared on the top bar. I moused over it and saw I could use THAT to end privileges before the 10 minute grace was up. I should have thought of it before, and, small as it is, I thought this was a great feature.So, when I upgraded from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx on my desktop, I thought that feature would be there, but it's not.So first I'm wondering if it's there, but just not default. If so, how do I get that icon to appear? If not, how do I otherwise end admin privileges early?

Apache is still working, but I suspect something in the config has changed, but I don't know what.When I try to load a .php file, the resultant web page is just blank, if I have a .html file with php code in it, the page is not rendered from the point where the php starts. I have checked /var/log/apache2/error.log and there is nothing in that file.
