    [ubuntu] Re: Live Installation not starting

    Usually, I would try harder to make sure the BIOS settings are properly set. If you can't get the CD to boot, you can install from within Linux, by putting the installation .iso file into its own...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD cant try/install -> blank screen

    Assuming the Live CD is OK (does it work in other computers?), the most likely problem is that the Live CD installer kernel has some hardware incompatibility issues with your system. To install, try...

    [ubuntu] Re: No Boot Sector

    That error probably comes from your computer's BIOS. It sounds like there are some hardware issues between the USB hard drive and your computer's USB system. You might check in the BIOS to see if...

    In thinking about it, after you created the module, you were in the Desktop/rt18 directory, if you followed the instructions on the thread. The module file, with the extension .ko, would be in this...

    See if you can load the driver (kernel module) manually with the modprobe instruction as in the thread you followed. If that works, but it doesn't automatically load at boot time, you may need to do...

    What you have downloaded is a tar.gz archive containing source code for the Realtek driver. You need to compile it and install it into your system if you want to use this driver. This thread has some...

    [SOLVED] Re: Stuck at grub2 recovery

    I assume the keyboard works when you boot a Live CD. It is possible that the grub program that is on the hard disk is corrupted. I think the cure would be to boot a Live CD, and re-install grub onto...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: (EE) Screen(s) found, but have a usable configuration after Skype installation

    These error messages come from the X server software that creates the graphical display. Probably, Skype changed some setting in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, which controls the X server.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 9.1 doesnt boot up. Grub rescue command

    The most straightforward thing to do is re-install grub from a Live CD boot. It is possible -- maybe -- to re-configure grub from the grub-rescue prompt, but it is a bit harder. If you want to try...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can I load GRUB from grub rescue prompts? if so, how?

    Yes, you can boot from the grub-rescue prompt. The fact that you have this prompt means you are probably running a grub 1.97 command line (also known as grub 2).

    Hopefully you have a fully...

    [ubuntu] Re: PXE installation problem

    The problem seems to be that the client cannot access the internet. I do not know how your network is configured, but the client needs to know the gateway address. I assume your DHCP/TFTP server is...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 9.10 not detecting /dev/sdb on install

    [SOLVED] Re: BIOS causes boot to fail?

    Are you sure the CD is good? Does it work in other computers? But, you are right, it could be that the kernel on the CD is not working with your hardware.
