    Re: Toshiba NB 100 problem

    Hi all ...

    I'm new here, and this is my first post.

    I'm very glad to find some other users that are experiencing problems similar to mine with the combination of Toshiba NB 100 and Linux/Ubuntu.

    I've gotten my NB 100 a week ago from my company. We've decided to get the Windows version for the obvious reasons (more RAM, BT and so on ...) and I wanted to install Ubuntu as second OS, as I thought "hey, they're shipping it with this OS, so it will work".

    How stupid I was.


    I had some calls to Toshiba hotline ... result: Very much support for Windows ... none for Linux.
    I asked them for the "Original" Distribution they ship with their Ubuntu-Version of the NB 100 ... but this is not available to the outside world.
    So I tried for myself.

    First try:
    - Kubuntu Intrepid (I used to prefer KDE over Gnome with KDE 3, but after having some insight into KDE4 on Netbooks I will overthink that). Result: installation worked fine, but no WLAN running!

    Second try:
    - Ubuntu-eee (non-Canonical offshoot of Intrepid, I think; Netbook Remix). Result: WLAN worked fine, but the OS did not recognize the Hard Discs, so no installation possible

    Third try:
    - Ubuntu Hardy ... installation worked fine, but no WLAN.
    As I was desperating about this, I found THIS forum thread.
    But I seem to have lost the track: What do I actually need to get my WLAN running? The thing Cryptonome wrote (=> get this Netbook Remix edition, which desktop I do not very like) and add the toshiba-packages?
    I tried to add the toshiba-things (oem-config, toshiba-conf and so on) but I got lost in dependency chaos (there were always missing dependencies like "language-installer" or other)
    Or is it the way jaureguiramirez wrote? (download the madwifi package, reinstall it)?
    I tried this, too (I tried to guess the correct way, as I do not speak spanish), but it had no effect.

    Or maybe it is a problem of Gnomes Network Manager applet? (I do not find Entries for my WLAN there).





    Well, I seem to need help. I am a programmer myself, but still quite new to the Linux world, so this whole "compile the kernel"-stuff scares the **** out of me. Anyhow, I would be grateful to get a working (with all hardware options) NB100. Could someone please help me?

    Maybe one could summarize all needed steps to get a working Linux on a NB 100 from steps like "download the ISO image here", "do this to make a bootable USB stick from it", "install to hard drive", "add these repositories" "get these packages" and finally "have fun with your WLAN"?

    I'm completely lost and slightly frustrated ...

    Hi all,

    For install ubuntu on this netbook, use Ubuntu Network Remix, read this page, all is explain for install it :

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UNR


    After, add in your source.list the payson repository :


    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/payson/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/payson/ubuntu hardy main

    Then do :

    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install toshiba-payson-unr

    And all work


    For me, i'm testing PHC undervolt on it for the moment...

    Re: Toshiba NB 100 problem

    Hi Everyone,

    I notice that people are having varied results with the install of Ubuntu on the NB100 and wanted to tell how I was able to do this.

    First of all, I purchased the Windows XP version of the NB100, but my end goal was to have a dual-boot system with both XP and Ubuntu. I really wanted it to have the "official" Ubuntu install as if I had purchased it with this, and also get the benefits of the LPIA kernel, so I went with the UNR 1.0.1 deployment package. I setup my system as follows:

    1) Downloaded http://oem-images.canonical.com/unr/unr-1.0.1.iso and burned the ISO image to a DVD

    2) Booted from this and installed on the NB100. Note that this installer is NOT like the standard Ubuntu installer and does not allow you to pick a partition. It will wipe all partitions and do it's own install.

    3) Downloaded gparted boot image and created a bootable CD for this. Used this to shrink the Ubuntu partition to 10 GB and copy it to the 2nd partition. Created a partition with the rest (about 100GB) for Windows.

    To make it more clear -- after I was done booting the gparted CD and modifying the partitions, I had a 100 GB partition labeled as NTFS first (on the left in the gparted graph) and my 10 GB Ubuntu partition on the right side.

    Note that it is REQUIRED for the Toshiba XP restore disk that Windows be on the first partition. This move of Ubuntu to the new 2nd partition screws up grub, but we'll fix that later.

    4) Now I booted from the XP restore CD that came in my NB100 box. At the first screen I chose "advanced" or something like that at the bottom which brought up a dialog box to let me choose to either wipe the disk (NO!!) or install on a partition. When I chose to install on an existing partition, it offered me the first partition (100GB). If you did not move Ubuntu to the 2nd partition with gparted, it will want to overwrite it.

    5) After restoring XP to the large partition, when I rebooted, I got only a message saying "Error 17". This is grub complaining that it can't find the Ubuntu installation. Now you need a regular Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.10 installation boot CD. Boot into the live CD session, mount your Ubuntu partition, and edit the ./boot/grub/grub.conf file.

    You need to make the following changes:
    a) for both Ubuntu boot images, root (hd0,0) needs to change to root (hd0,1)

    b) for both boot images, set the kernel boot line to include "root=/dev/sda2"

    c) add the line for Windows XP as follows:
    title Microsoft Windows XP Home
    root (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1

    d) set the timout parameter as appropriate for the number of seconds you want before booting in to the default OS

    e) load the changes in to the MBR as follows:
    sudo grub
    root (hd0,1)
    setup (hd0)
    quit

    Now grub is all set and you just need to adjust your ./etc/fstab file to change the mounting of the root partition from /dev/sda1 to /dev/sda2

    Note I am using ./boot/grub/menu.lst and ./etc/fstab because these are the ones located in the Ubuntu partition, NOT the ones on the current root directory (those are the live CD files and won't help you!).

    6) Now you should be able to reboot and get the grub menu. Test to be sure that you can boot into both XP and Ubuntu.

    Finally, follow the directions in the earlier post about adding the payson sources to the source file and to the apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get install toshiba-payson-unr

    Now you should be all set.

    If anyone tries this and runs in to trouble, let me know and I can help or post my grub menu.lst file.

    Good luck!

    Eric
