  1. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot Ubuntu more recent than 10.10?

    Hmm...now I'm thinking that this may be related to ACPI. I was able to boot once from the USB stick, but I haven't been able to reproduce it.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot Ubuntu more recent than 10.10?

    nVidia GeForce GTX 460



    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried a few different Boot options, including "nomodeset", but nothing worked.

    Any other ideas?

    I have a computer that is still currently running Ubuntu 10.10. I have tried to upgrade several times, but I haven't been able to get this machine to reliably boot with any version of Ubuntu newer...

    Is my swap parition working?

    It seems like it is:

  6. [ubuntu] Re: still can't boot after upgrade to Oneiric

    It looked like the UUID of the swap partition did not match. I tried to fix it, but now I can't boot AT ALL!! :confused:

  7. [ubuntu] Re: still can't boot after upgrade to Oneiric

    What else can I do to diagnose this problem?
  8. [ubuntu] Re: still can't boot after upgrade to Oneiric

    That did not seem to work. And in fact, the previous trick of "editing" grub without actually doing anything doesn't seem to work reliably either.

    I do think some sort of timing issue may be at...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: still can't boot after upgrade to Oneiric

    Thanks, I read through some of this. Here is an update:

    If I try to boot normally, it just hangs on the purple screen right away. There is no disk activity. However, if I hit "e" at the grub menu,...

    [ubuntu] Re: High load, low CPU?

    OK, thanks. So if I/O is the bottleneck, then the only thing I can do is increase the buffer sizes that MySQL has to work with, right? They are already pretty big, but in the screenshot, memory usage...

    [SOLVED] Re: 10.10 Server hung_task_timeout_secs?

    Indeed, the Red Hat forum eventually contained the solution. The trick was upgrading the SmartArray firmware from version 2.36 to version 2.84.

    Thanks!

    OK, I am trying to resize the partitions on a new HD, which in this case is /dev/sda2. I'm booting off of a USB drive, which is /dev/sdb2. In Gparted, the volume /dev/sda2 appears to be unmounted, as...
