    seem to be an issue with some cd/dvd readers
    The same CD reader was used to install Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 so if its the CD, some kind of regression has occured.

    This error occurs from time to time with me, and I don't even have any CD/DVD drives connected or installed, not ever. And I installed from a flash drive (using the iso image), not the CD/DVD drive...

    I installed the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Final Release from DVD.

    I met the same piece of code, before the user login. But I can successfully login system, AND I do not know whether the error affected the other programs.

    When I use Lucid, encountered some strange and rare problems. For example, cannot recognize usb modem (huawei EC1260) , cannot install tomboy-image, etc.

    Lucid made me very confused. I am thinking about going back to the Karmic (9.10). Karmic is OK.

    Yes, Lucid feels very unstable. But I know that some people experienced the same with Karmic, so naturally it all depends on what kind of bugs and glitches exists in each version and how it affects each user.

    Since I cant install Lucid, I have started looking into other distributions, but we'll see if I take the plunge or not.

    Does anyone know what graphics card they have?
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    I *think* I remember this being the error message for the intel driver on i8xx card. Try:

    Installed 10.04 the day (actually it was 3 o'clock at night in the country i stay) it was released. everything worked perfect, except some minor bugs. but later on it started to give me :

    GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)

    it's a known bug. many people ( thousands if not more) have encountered it. i just hope they fix it soon ,, because my installation getting weirder every time i boot again.
