    Exclamation Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    After upgrade attempt to Ubuntu 11.10, my laptop Compaq 615 died (previously dual boot Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7). After reboot, screen is following:

    error: incompatible license.
    grub rescue>


    I tried to load: Ubuntu 11.10 boot disc, to repair grub ... nothing work (no Ubuntu, no Windows).
    Will you be able to help, please?

    Same with my Mythbuntu 11.10 attempt. Identical unhelpful error message. What license? Are they talking about the Fluendo license?

    Same problem here. Did have Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7 dual booting perfectly. Then i ran the 11.10 upgrade and went to bed. Next morning computer was froze so rebooted and now i get:

    error:incompatible license
    grub rescue>

    tried several different fixes but nothing seems to work.

    I fought valiantly attempting to upgrade from 11.04, but finally gave up, formatted and reinstalled fresh from the 11.10 iso.
    I really hated to lose all my recordings but mythtv seems to get cruded up over time and a refresh every few months seems to be required. (Your mileage may vary)

    Re: Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    I have the same problem. Ive had a server that was turned off for a couple of weeks. I Went to turn it on today and got in and played with it just fine. A message popped up inviting me to update to 11.1 so I did. Thank goodness this is not a production environment because now I am getting the same message. Does anyone know why this has happened? More importantly how can it be fixed? I have spent quite a bit of time getting this properly configured and would hate to start over.

    Thanks for responding!

    Re: Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    @BleLancer, everyone else who has posted in this thread seems not have logged in since, so let's see if we can deal with your problem. First - are you getting the "error: incompatible license" message? From what I can make out from some googling (there is a lot of irrelevant stuff to wade through) this could be due to different versions of grub being present. Whether or not this is so, the best way to see what is wrong is to run the boot script. Are you able to run a live Ubuntu CD on your server? If you can, boot up with a live CD and go to this site:

    http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/

    Download and run the boot info script following the instructions there and post the contents of your RESULTS.txt file between [code] and [/code] tags for clarity. That should give us evidence to show why grub is failing.

    Re: Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    Thanks for replying!

    I will give this a shot. My first question however is that the live CD that I have is for the old version of Ubuntu. I had completed the upgrade to 11.1 do you think that it will get me into any more trouble if I use the old version CD? or should I make a new 11.1 CD to do this stuff with.

    to answer your first question... Yes I am get exactly what the person who opened the thread described

    error: incompatible license.
    grub rescue>

    this is all that appears when I start the server

    Re: Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    As long as it's not a very old version of Ubuntu, you should be fine. 10.04 or later will certainly work OK. What happens is that the boot script scans your hard drive(s) and reports on partitions, filesystems, bootloaders and key configuration files. You could use a live CD of another Linux distro such as Fedora and get the results we need.

    Re: Upgrade to Ununtu 11.10 failed - Error - incompatible license

    Ok a couple of things...

    I accomplished what you requested and got the script ran on the server. For your information this is an IBM x335 with 4g of ram and a 67g mirror dual Xeon 2.8 processors. I used a ubuntu server 11.04 to set this up originally. When you said use a Live CD I tried this disk again. I did not get an option for Live CD of course but I did see an intresting option. I could not resist trying the Rescue option from the main menu. The results were odd but may be related. It quickly gave me an error that I was trying to use a 64bit program with 686 processors and to please get the right disk. Anyway, I had an Ultimate Boot disk on hand so I used that to run the script. Here is the result of that. I hope the formatting is ok if its not let me know I can do something else. Additionally there is no MS partion on this server and I am not attempting to get this machine to dual boot. Before I ran the update this machine was working perfectly.

    You need code tags around the output. Apart from not having a wall of text, it also preserves formatting, which a plain paste into the body of post text doesn't. What you do is

    [code]
    your
    bootscript
    output[/code]

    Which gives you:

    Code:
    your
    bootscript
    output
    Try to edit your post and you'll see what I mean. And one for your bookmarks. Lots of clever things to do with BBCode:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/misc.php?do=bbcode

    Anyway, to your boot script output. It shows some interesting things. Your sdb drive was originally sda to which you had installed 11.04 and subsequently upgraded it to 11.10. At the time of upgrading you didn't have what is now the sda drive attached - or the system didn't detect it. Grub is correctly installed to sdb:

    Code:
    => Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks at sector 1 of
    the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks
    for (,msdos1)/boot/grub on this drive.
    And were sdb to be your boot drive, it looks as though it would boot OK.

    Your current sda drive has 11.04 which has had an update to the kernel and which also detected the presence of Ubuntu on sdb, but before this was updated to 11.10, so it must have been bootable at one point. I'm a bit puzzled about this. But at the moment, there appears to be some problem with core.img in sector 1:

    Code:
    => Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 1 of
    the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks
    for on this drive.
    I'm not sure what that means. One would expect it to say, "looks for partition location on this drive."

    I still don't know what the "incompatible license" is all about - perhaps a 32-bit/64-bit issue? - but there are two ways to deal with this that I can see. The first is simply to make sdb your boot drive, either by changing the settings in the BIOS (is this possible with an IBM server?) or by simply swapping the drives around. The system *should* then boot into the upgraded Ubuntu in what is sdb at the moment, and by running "sudo update-grub" you would then get a menu entry for the other Ubuntu installation.

    The other option is to re-install grub to the mbr of sda. There are various ways of doing this. The easiest is with a live Ubuntu CD, same release, same architecture, but it sounds as though this might not be possible. You'll have to educate me at this point - I have no experience of server machines. This doesn't sound to be a headless one, but can you run a live Ubuntu CD?

    By the way, you didn't mention that you had two independent installations of Ubuntu on separate drives before. Do you want to keep both, or rationalise your setup in some way?
