  1. [ubuntu] Re: How can I tell which architecture I'm running?

    I find the following gives me a better list of the packages I installed (fewer than apt-mark showmanual alone) :

    comm -23 <(apt-mark showmanual | sort -u) <(gzip -dc ...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: How can I tell which architecture I'm running?

    My 64 bit uname claims x86_64 where you have i686, so probably 32 bit.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to install Ubuntu on Asus X205TA?

    My x205CA is very picky about USB drives. Insert the drive when running (hard if not capable of running, I know) then a reboot might see the drive and allow selection as a boot device. There's...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: complete ubuntu21.10. does not boot from USB-device (but live-usb boots fine)

    sda, sdb, ... are disks -- little boxes for storage (as opposed to Microsoft usage which they also include disk partitions as "disks").;
    sdb1 is the first partition on the second disk -- likely your...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: complete ubuntu21.10. does not boot from USB-device (but live-usb boots fine)

    Did any bootloaders actually get copied into the EFI partition (under /EFI/ubuntu and /EFI/Boot)? Be aware of longstanding launchpad bug 1396379, where grub gets installed to the wrong disk (but...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Dell Inspiron 3891 won't boot Linux Live DVD or USB

    Try making a USB3 install media. I just saw a note on Dell not supporting USB2 on Intel Skylake and later. Can't say how the DVD is attached or if it would be affected....
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Dell Inspiron 3891 won't boot Linux Live DVD or USB

    Virtualbox runs on Windows I think, and These days, Windows Subsystem for Linux is developing, (but maybe not GUI yet for Win10?). Waiting a bit and checking for experiences others have had is a...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Dell Inspiron 3891 won't boot Linux Live DVD or USB

    Here's a link for disabling bitlocker: https://windowsreport.com/disable-bitlocker-windows-8/
    Bitlocker was on by default, and the only initial keys are in TPM registers which are subject to...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Dell Inspiron 3891 won't boot Linux Live DVD or USB

    Ubuntu's been booting UEFI secure boot since 2012, so lacking legacy mode should not be a problem. The Windows checks to perform before everything else are:
    1)Filesystem in good shape, run chkdsk...

    Re: Latest Ubuntu and TPM And Secure Boot

    I cannot speak to TPM issues, but Ubuntu's shim approach to secure boot has been working for almost a decade. Third party modules, like Nvidia proprietary video drivers are a problem, but if you do...

    Re: New Installation from DVD ISO failing?

    Lets start at the beginning: where did you get the ISO, did you hashcheck it, how did you create the DVD, did you media check it?
  13. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Booting into Ubuntu MATE partition with Windows 10 as main OS

    Check your BIOS/UEFI Settings for selecting the boot mode (legacy or UEFI). Some machines let your set a preference, and will boot the first mode possible, so in that case set your preference to...
  14. Re: Cannot install lts (or any distro) due to firmware bugs

    Another thing to try is to use the Beta of 21.10 with the latest kernel.
  15. [SOLVED] Re: new system, live install runs in safe graphics mode, but doesn't launch after reb

    Also, check the SSD firmware for available updates too.
  16. [SOLVED] Re: new system, live install runs in safe graphics mode, but doesn't launch after reb

    First check with your motherboard vendor that your firmware is up-to-date. Maybe some kernel param is necessary, like acpi=0 to boot, then install any proprietary (video?) drivers. Try the latest...
  17. Re: Cannot install lts (or any distro) due to firmware bugs

    Keep checking for firmware updates, they may be quite frequent. Try the kernel param acpi=0 and if that boots, (maybe in a severely degraded mode with only only CPU core), try refining the acpi=xx....

    Re: changing the OS

    There are ways to boot the ISO off the hard disk, but probably not if you are overwriting the partition the ISO is on. The stick is more straightforward, since the hdd grub boot instructions may...

    Good! You can use the thread tools drop down at the top to mark this as "Solved".
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble Installing Ubuntu 20.04 LTS On Dell Inspiron 5515

    Right, so back to the ISO, did you hashcheck it? After burning to a USB(?), does the grub screen offer a "check media"? Does the media boot successfully in "try" mode? Doesn't seem like a missing...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble Installing Ubuntu 20.04 LTS On Dell Inspiron 5515

    Try booting with the kernel param acpi=0 to see if boot finishes (maybe with drastic issues like only using one cpu core). If that works try acpi=ht to keep the hyperdthreading but shutting down...
  22. Re: Installing ubuntu without touching windows

    Re: recovery problem after upgrade

    A minor note: hd0 would be sda, (and hd1 would be sdb). Disk enumeration starts at 0, partitions at 1.

    With an expresscard slot, you can even hang a desktop GPU off an adapter, see the egpu.io site. Worked great for my old Lenovo W520.
