    fresh 12.10 ubuntu installation keeps freezing at startup

    Hello,

    I received my new netbook today (this one) and I wanted to install Linux additionally to the windows os because I wanted to get known more to it and because my university only supports linux in my programming classes.

    I downloaded 12.10 and created a bootable USB stick, then installed it. The installation ran perfectly fine with no problems whatsoever (I had internet connection the whole time during it), but everytime I try to start Ubuntu now it freezes at the starting up screen where it checks all the subprograms.

    It ever freezes at the same point, which would be: "*starting configure virtual network devices". I can do nothing at that point other than heavy restarting my netbook.

    edit: okay, it also freezes at another point, which is right after "*stopping save kernel messages"
    Oh, and I should probably mention that none of the checks fail, they all have the [OK], it just completely stops at one point and enters sleep state.


    I already checked some threads but none of them was any help whatsoever, whenever I tried any of the solutions I just got any error messages.

    I tried already:

    -starting in failsafe graphic mode: I get asked "Continuing will remount your / filesystem in read/write mode and mount any other filesystem defined in /etc/fstab. Do you wish to continue?" and when I press yes a terminal opens and it prints "fsck from util-linux 2.20.1" and "/dev/sda6: clean, 166403/7610368 files, 1195394/30428928 blocks". I am then stuck in the terminal and can't write any commands or even exit the terminal, I have to hardreset again.

    -choosing dpkg for reparing broken packages: same as when trying failsafe graphic mode

    -"sudo apt-get install lightdm": Doesn't work and I have no idea why not. print: "W: Not using locking for read only lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock"; "E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/" and "E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened."

    -"sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm": answer print is "chown: changing ownership of `/var/lib/lightdm`: Read-only file system"

    -"sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm": "dpkg-query: package 'gdm' is not installed and no information is availabe" & "/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: gdm is not installed"

    -reinstalled it twice now

    The Windows partition runs perfectly fine.

    Why is my partition only read only? I never set this? How can I make it read/write? And does that actually have anything todo with the fact that I ubuntu freezes every startup.


    Could anyone please shed some light on this? I am absolutely confused of what just any of these error messages mean, and everytime I try something that seems to have worked for other people, I just get more and more error messages which again tell me absolutely nothing.

    Check

    $ dmesg

    I may be a error message in there.
    Best, Gnusci

    Nvm, I installed now the 12.04 LTE version which seems to work.

    My guess is that the 12.10 version just isn't compatible to some of the hardware of my netbook.
