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 :: 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 Installation :: PPA Not Updated In Lucid Lynx Sources.list

Aug 20, 2010

I'm trying to add PPAs in my Kubuntu Lucid Lynx installation.

Code:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/ppa
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv

[code]....

But when I look in my sources.list, the PPA repository is not there. Nevertheless I SUSPECT I'm receiving it's updates.Is there a file that PPAs are being written to other than sources.list?Should I manually update sources.list in order to add this PPAs?

Ubuntu Installation :: CPU Whistling After Choose Win Xp On Grub After Instalation Of Lucid Lynx

May 28, 2010

I was using the 9.10 version of Ubuntu, and everything was ok. So I decided to update to 10.04, by update manager, and it not works pretty well. So I decided to reinstall my ubuntu. In my PC I also have a instalation of Windows XP, my father and sister uses it. The installation went well, no problems, Lucid Lynx is working fine. But in the grub screen, if you choose Win XP, the CPU starts to whisthle continuously, and the only thing you can do is restart.

I have been reading about it, but do not find the exactly same problem. I have posted a thread in a portuguese forum (im from Brasil) and have no good responses. Sorry about the bad English, I dont have to much experience writing.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx After Restart Error: No Such Device - Grub Rescue

Aug 27, 2010

when it comes to linux, but like the idea and hope one day to get away from microsoft all together. This is the second time I have tried to install ubuntu on my eeepc 1000HG in addition to windows 7. The first version was karmic koala netbook remix, and yesterday it was lucid lynx netbook remix. Its annoying because before the update packages are downloaded and installed it runs smoothly, even additional applications run with no problem, but after restart to complete installation the following error message appears.

error: no such device: 5290ea6f-1bdf-4eda-b56e-2f282662e188. grub rescue>

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 :: 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 :: 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

General :: Delete All Lines Containing A String, Plus 4 Lines Below It?

Jan 26, 2010

I've come across an unusual requirement for a service in my Ubuntu system.Simply put, I need to find a way to search for all instances of a term in a file, delete lines containing containing that term, and delete four lines below each instance of that term. ither that, or copy the entirety of a file to a new file and skip over all lines containing the term plus four below it.This sounds kinda weird, I know. Without going too far into detail, I either have to change the logfile format for a server I'm running which is a huge pain in the butt, or I can just run a script to edit an HTML report generated from said logs. (Said report is really just for managers to peruse, and I like my log format, so I'm pursuing option 2.)

Ubuntu :: Can't Delete / Rename File

Feb 6, 2010

I have moved all files from one hard drive to another but one file remains that I cannot move, delete or rename.

From a fresh boot, nothing nefarious running in the background...

Using Nauitilus, find a file called: .goutputstream-59R62U

It appears to be a 1.5Gb MPEG file. I can click on it and it plays in MoviePlayer. I can drag it into VLC and it plays normally. But I can't move it, delete it or rename it and I can't do the same to its parent directory or the parent of that directory.

Running sudo nautilus from Terminal it doesn't appear at all.

Running Gnome Commander it doesn't show up either. When trying to delete its parent directory (with permissions set to rwxrwxrwx) I get the following error:

Error while deleting ".goutputstream-59R62U"

File not found

Ubuntu :: Delete Grub And Boot Into Windows

Aug 30, 2010

I have removed Ubuntu and I just have Windows 7 installed.

When I turn on the laptop, Grub tries to load but it fails. I have used Windows 7 install DVD and clicked into repair windows start so I should get Windows default bootloader back, but when I restart, Grub is still there...

How do I remove grub and get the laptop to boot into Windows automatically?

This is my HDD, btw: [URL]

Note: I'm booting right now using iBoot, how do I repair this problem? I may run chkdsk, Windows asks me to run it every time I boot into it since 1 or 2 weeks... maybe it won't repair the boot loader until I ran chkdsk, I dunno

Ubuntu :: Clean Up Grub List At Boot?

Jan 12, 2010

I installed The latest and greatest Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and everything is clicking along just fine except one annoying feature that I am unable to get my finger on.I have quite a list of choices at bootup. I updated a couple version of the kernel and there is this memtest thing...twice... Then my family also uses windows 7 so that is the default at the bottom of the list set to boot after 3 seconds to keep the nagging to a minimum.

I would like to know the cleanest and safest way to have the list only show the current kernel option and the windows 7 option if this is even advised. Would it be best to have a backup (Previous kernel) in the list? *just in case* Is it safe to seek out the old kernel by version number and uninstall? Will this remove the entries in the list? Is editing the list and leaving other options installed wise? Is there a gui grub2 configuration tool with these advanced options? I have StartUp-Manager, but there is no options to change the list.

Im looking for the best/safest option to get this done because I now see another kernel update image in the update manager and it is going to increase the size of my list once I find the time to update. Im a bit green and scared I will ruin a good thing here. Everything is working perfectly so far and I realize one click and it could all be over.

I learned the hard way you have to restore images to a hard drive of a larger size than the drive the image was ripped from. I had already ripped 6 or more images and have them in the Home_Partimag folder and cannot delete or rename these images. I want to remake these images and rip them from smaller hard drives. Any commands I can use to be able to do this?

Fedora :: Delete GRUB And Boot Straight Into Vista?

Mar 29, 2010

I was dual-booting Vista Business and Fedora 12 on the same hard drive. I deleted the Fedora partition and expanded the Vista partition to use this space.

I figured that because GRUB was on the Fedora partition (at least, I thought it was), I'd just be able to load up Vista as usual.

When I turn the computer on, a GRUB command-line comes up, and to be completely honest, I have absolutely no idea what to do at this point. I'd quite like to just get rid of GRUB entirely and boot straight into Vista, but again, I don't know how.

I've tried using a Vista recovery disc to sort out startup problems, but it doesn't do anything because the problem occurs before control is passed over to Vista.

What can I do to fix this problem? Can I get delete GRUB and boot straight into Vista? How?
