    Question Alternate Install Problems

    I have tried installing ubuntu 11.04 under and encrypted lvm, five times. I used this guide. I completed installation five times, though with errors it seems.

    Once booted, I am greeted with the user login and a black background. The mouse still works, but once I sign in I am greeted with the following errors:

    1. Could not update ICEauthority file/home/[user]/.ICEauthority

    2.There is a problem with config server [...] status 256

    3. Nautilus could not create the required folder /home/[username]/.nautilus

    I said fudge it, and was going to try installing 10.04 or 10.10 under encrypted lvm and just update it to 11.04 once I get the darn thing to work, but those alternates don't seem to work off of USB. They keep asking for a cdrom driver.

    Ideally, I would like to figure out what packages I am missing, if any, and resolve this issue using command prompts. However, if someone can provide some assistance of any kind, I wont turn it down. This is driving me nuts.

    If it matters, the computer is a triple-boot set us such:

    partition1 - windows7
    partition2 -extended
    ...partition3 - boot
    ...partition4 - crypto(lvm)
    ......partiton5 - swapubuntu
    ......partiton6 - rootubuntu
    ...partition7 -backtrax
    partition8 - storage

    No issues with grub loader, though. So I don't think the partitioning is the root of the problem. It has to do with the alternate installer, I am pretty sure. The installer encounters errors during install, with the 11.04 alt_64 version.

    That didn't help so much. Thanks for giving it a shot, though. I think this guide will help with overcoming the nocdrom issue with older alternate installers. I just hope they don't generate the same errors that 11.04 alt did.

    Thanks for the link.I am loathe to do a fully encrypted install but am filing this just in case.

    I'll update the topic, if it works. I am really really hoping it does. =)

    Re: Alternate Install Problems

    Ok, installed through 10.10 alternate 64 though it had to be created on Ubuntu's own start-up disk creator to work without cdrom.

    Next, I upgraded to 11.04.

    Unity would not display, so I followed a guide for this very issue.

    Ubuntu 11.04 alternate x64 iso has errors, so this is the way to properly install 11.04 encrypted alternate.
