Did a clean install on my new Dell Studio 15 laptop. Works really well
Kudos to the Ubuntu team!
This was on a Toshiba Satellite Pro SP4600, 750MHz cpu, 192MB RAM.
Tried 2 different ISO downloads, and the whole thing hung for over an hour, checksums were fine. Then reading this forum found I should have used the alternative CD, which I did.
Another hour later and a black screen full of script, and it hangs again.
Back to 9.10 !
Upgraded both my laptop & desktop from 9.10 using update manager. I do have 1 problem. If I reboot, the visual effects resets to none. I have to reenable it to get the borders. This is happening on both systems. Any way to fix or do I just deal with it?
I did an upgrade from Karmic to Lucid (Alpha 2). Then, after Lucid final release I decided to do a clean install.
My system is a desktop - AMD Athlon CPU, 2GB Ram, and an Nvidia 6200 (NV4A) graphics card.
I first tried an install from a CD after I downloaded and burned the ISO. I booted to the "live-CD" and tried to partition my hard-drive.
The install kept "locking-up" when the GParted started to do the partitioning.
Built a USB thumb-drive and tried again . . no luck kept locking-up.
Put in a "SystemRescue CD" and successfully partioned the hard disk.
Booted off the USB drive and started the install . . . again a "lock-up" when the partitioner started. Tried several times. In all I probably tried to do a clean install 8 or 9 times, all failed when the partitioning started. I was ready to go out an buy a new hard drive.
Then I thought . . "Why is the system locking-up ? ?" Could it be because I was "over-clocking" the system ? ?
I went to the BIOS and set everything to "Optimal Settings" . . . restarted the install and BOOM . . success!
Went very smoothly, no problems (after I turned off all the "over-clocking" I'd done). So, if you're having problems with your install, check to see if you've set over-clocking parameters a little too high . . . that might be the problem.
BTW - after some research here's how I partitioned (ext4) my 120GB Seagate: /boot=146MB, /=5GB, SWAP=1.8GB, /home=all remaining.
I'm now running a clean install of 10.04, I dual-boot to Window XP Home Edition running on a the second disk (80GB) with a second data partition (ext3) for backing up Linux stuff.
Netbook ASUS EeePc (701C) - Peppermint4
Desktop AMD, GeForce 210 - WinXP/Ubuntu Development Release
Laptop MSI Wind-U230 - Win7/Ubuntu Development Release
I have a major issue:
Fresh install of Lucid Lynx ( Ubuntu 10.04 ) 64-bit gives me a weird screen w/ an odd vertical pattern on it. The OS booted perfectly right after installation, but after a reboot all I get is that odd vertical pattern.
I reinstalled using another install CD, I even performed a check on the install CD and on my HDD to make sure that both were Error-free, but I got the same result.
Can anyone help?!!?
Upgrade last night,
Work fine I have a few minor thing to fix but nothing serious. AWN 0.4 didn't restart, I need to reconfigure it! Probably not relate to ubuntu. The same thing has happen on my Arch Linux laptop. I also have to reinstall the medibuntu and freenx repository. Not so bad at all!
In the upgrade process the system ask me a couple of question I wasn't very sure what to answer. But it restarted perfectly.
I personnaly like the new look!
Upgrade , ran smoothly ,
amarok is crashing after starting and thunderbird is segfaulting.
have only spent about 15mins investigating problem (headed to work)
but probably easy fixes.
I think in both cases its some addon / custom script thats causing the problem.
C8H10N4O2 - Gets me where I want to go.
First and foremost, thank You very much to those who made 10.04 happen.
I have a funny upgrade issue here.
I first upgraded My 64bit desktop and it went flawlessly, took close to two and half hours but it did upgrade.
Now this is where I need the Ladies and Gentlemen help, on My toshiba A200 32bit laptop when I get to the upgrade screen and select Upgrade, I enter my password and watch the process get to the third party software must be disabled screen.
I select close and and the selecting some channel options start running then bang it all stops and and says that there is a error during update and that it
"failed to fetch http://archive.canonical.con/ubuntu/dists/lucid/partner/binary-i386/Packages.gz"
Also it "could not fetch http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/partner/source/Source.gz"
then it tells me that I might have a internet connection problem, which I am sure I don't. I even disabled my ufw firewall in the hopes that it was the problem.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to reinstall my Ubuntu and lose everything in the process.
those sources are incorrect. Did you type them in manually? there is no
that should be com.
Im not sure if you just typed that address wrong in this post or if its setup wrong on your machine though. Let us know
btw, the second one is also incorrect. There is no distribution in there (like lucid). Can you post the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list ?
