    need to understand umask values

    I'm currently studying for the new Linux+ exam (Powered by LPIC) and I'm not completely understanding umask values. What I understand so far from my reading is that the umask is used to find the...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 install hangs on splash screen

    Add the flags noapic and acpi=off in addition to nomodeset. See if that works. That's what I had to do.

    [ubuntu] Re: Live CD not root

    I wasn't trying to modify /boot/grub.cfg. I was trying to modify /etc/default/grub. Once I was able to do that, I just ran update-grub and it modified /boot/grub.cfg as necessary.

    [ubuntu] Re: Live CD not root

    I tried gksudo gedit, which is the same thing....it pulls up a graphical tool for editing, but I still did not have permission to edit /etc/default/grub as the root user (while running from the...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 Live CD works great - nothing works after install

    So, am I seriously the only one with this problem? I see nearly a hundred posts of problems people are having with 10.04 and I'm the only one with this one?

    [ubuntu] Re: Live CD not root

    I ran into the same problem a couple days ago with my 10.04 Live CD. I needed to modify /etc/default/grub and it wouldn't let me. So, I did a su - (or maybe sudo su -) to become root and then I tried...
  7. [ubuntu] 10.04 Live CD works great - nothing works after install

    Ok, when I finally figured out which flags I had to use to get the Live CD to boot, it ran and loaded just fine. The sound worked, my wireless was recognized and my USB thumbdrive was mounted...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 blinking cursor after grub select OS screen

    Thanks for all your help. I finally realized that in order for grub to boot properly, I had to add the noapic and acpi=off arguments in addition to the nomodeset flag. This did allow me to boot,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Hangs during 10.04 LTS bootup

    I'm glad this worked for you. I'm having the same problem, but I don't have an intel chipset. My video chipset is ATI Mobility 9000.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 blinking cursor after grub select OS screen

    I waited about 30 minutes and it never moved past that point. Ctrl-Alt-F2 didn't get me a terminal window; it seemed to do nothing. When you said "is your disc light still flashing" were you...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 blinking cursor after grub select OS screen

    Clt+alt+ F2 didn't work. If I try booting the recovery kernel it does the same thing; it starts booting and stops. The last part of it says "Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom... Done." Then I'm...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 blinking cursor after grub select OS screen

    Nope. If I add the nomodeset flag after the quiet splash flag, I just get the blinking cursor. If I remove the quiet splash flag and replace it with nomodeset, it will attempt to boot and mount...
  13. [ubuntu] 10.04 blinking cursor after grub select OS screen

    I just installed 10.04 and for some reason once the grub screen loads and I can pick what I want to launch (regular kernel, or rescue mode), it attempts to load and then I just get a blinking cursor....
  14. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 Black screen on the live CD or when trying to install

    I've tried to modify this file while using the live cd but it wouldn't let me due to permissions. I even did a sudo su - to become root but that didn't work either. How do i modify this file?

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 live CD = blank screen?

    Ok I figured out that I had to use the nomodeset flag to get it to boot and install properly. I'm guessing I have to modify a file with this flag after installation but which one?

    [ubuntu] 10.04 live CD = blank screen?

    I'm not really sure what's going on here. I'm running 9.04 right now and would like to install 10.04. When I try to boot from the live CD, it does boot and I see two small icons at the bottom, one...

    Testing to see if this will actually show up, unlike the last 3 I made.

    [ubuntu] Re: Should I wait on Ubuntu Version 9.10?

    Honestly, I'd stick with 9.04 for as long as you can and maybe even skip 9.10. I installed 9.10 on my laptop (previously running 9.04 with no problems) and I couldn't get it to boot afterwards. It...
