View Full Version : [SOLVED] nm-applet crash trying out Ubuntu 12.10

December 1st, 2012, 05:48 PM
Hi everyone!
I'm trying to do a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. I decided to use the "Try Ubuntu" option first, just to make sure everything works and to connect to the wifi network before installing. I can't manage to connect to the network though and keep getting error messages telling me that nm-applet, geoclue-master, mission-control-5 and nmcli have crashed; all with signal 7 in NSS_NoDB_Init(). Needless to say, I am now rather reluctant to proceed with the installation as I do not want to end up with no Internet access (or worse).

I have checked the usb key I'm booting off (and the disk image I downloaded) for errors, but there don't seem to be any. I know that Ubuntu does run on this machine, I currently have Ubuntu 11.04 installed and before that iI was running 10.04.

Does anybody know how I can fix this? I'm going to try the 32bit version next, but I'd really rather use the 64bit version.

Thanks in advance!

Well, the 32bit version seems to work. Going to try downloading the 64bit version again and try it one more time.

Well now I feel like a complete idiot! :P

It turns out the iso was corrupted after all. I was checking the wrong iso against the wrong md5sum. I guess that's the danger of keeping old isos lying around.

Now I can get on with installing my shiny new Ubuntu! :guitar:
