View Full Version : [ubuntu] Failed Ubuntu Install (9.04)

May 10th, 2009, 10:21 PM
Ok, I was installing 9.04 and it gave me a couple of errors, one about eclipse or something and the rest it gave me just unknown errors. I was attempting to setup a dual-boot with vista. For a while it just gave me a GRUB command line interface, asking for the kernel location. I left it for about a week and now it gave me the choice of Vista, Ubuntu 9.04 and Ubuntu 9.04 Recovery Mode. I booted into Vista and ran startup repair (it asked me too). Then I backed up my entire Vista partion and then booted into Ubuntu. Looking at the list of errors and the lack of a graphical interface, it seems like it failed to install everything. I cannot install anything because some dkpg files are missing/corrupt. What should I do, get rid of the Ubuntu partion, reinstall ubuntu or just forget ubuntu and run a bloated crap-ware system with the worst operating system created by humans?

Dell XPS M1330
