View Full Version : Cannot run Ubuntu Netbook remix

February 1st, 2010, 03:56 AM
I would love to dump XP and use Ubuntu Remix instead. This has been quite an ordeal trying to get this to run from a USB and very disappointing.

First, the website instructions are for an img file which doesn’t exist. I had to determine this through searching online as I thought the instructions would be at least accurate.

Second, I used instructions from pendrivelinux which only creates a USB that says “Could not find kernel image: /casper/cmlinux”

Third, used Ubuntu 9.10 desktop and usb-creator. Could not use the iso file from ubuntu.com. Searched online and found this bug saying its corrupt: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/usb-creator/+bug/500526

After two days, I cannot even get Remix to run and I don’t feel very comfortable in replacing my slow bloated XP anymore...

Has anyone got this working at all?

What machine?

Try installing Ubuntu and then adding Remix to that through the package manager. You can just add it in.

Thanks for the speedy reply... interesting I didn’t know you can also install that way.

As an update to my previous post, I installed usb-creator for windows (which I didn’t know existed). That provided an error message that the iso is corrupted.

I downloaded the iso file again, and that worked....

I would never have thought it was a bad download because I was able to view the files iniside the iso.

Hi Ryan,

I realize this thread is a bit old, but, in case you come back to read it again.

When you downloaded the remix .iso did you do a *md5sum* check on the file?


This check helps a lot.
