View Full Version : [ubuntu] Synaptic can't fetch cdrom problem

July 22nd, 2010, 02:52 AM

I'm attempting to install Lucid on a new Acer Timeline X 5820T and having a tons of problems.

First of, I've got no internet connection either wired or wirelessly.

I've found several posts claiming that the ethernet card just needs a driver installed to work correctly.

However, to make the driver I need build essential installed, but no problem, I've got my CD, I'll just install them from the CD.

However, when I attempt to install them through synanptic it tells me that it:

Failed to fetch cdrom:[Ubuntu 10.04 LTS_Lucid_Lynx_ - Release i386 (20100429)]/pool/main/p/patch_2.6-2ubuntu1_i386.deb

File not found

Can anybody clue me in as to why it can't fetch the cdrom? Ubuntu recognizes it and I can browse it just fine.

Thank you in advance,

same problem here.

got this issue on Lucid and ended up installing these packages 1 by 1 via CDrom (debian installer).

Now I have maverick alpha and have (surprising enough) the same problem.

Is something configured wrong?

Quite annoying bug. Help plx :)
