Invalid Environment Block
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 17, 2009
I have Karmic Koala on my external HDD, and I was running it all day, but now when I try to boot, I get this error. Invalid Environment Block. I dont understand why it was working all day and now I cant even boot. Any ideas?
Also: I read some posts about trying to fix this, and I saw that pressing E when grub loads, then delete the 2 rows:
Then boot with Ctrl-X.
When I did this, I get the following error before being able to delete the two lines:
Press any key to continue
error: Invalid environment block
Failed to boot default entries
Any help would be grateful.
Installed ubuntu side by side with windows and now cant load windows
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 29, 2012
I went and downloaded ubuntu 12.10 today and burned it to a disk. Started the computer from the disk and installed Ubuntu from there and chose to install it with windows 7. Both are 64 bit. Now when I turn off the computer and try to load windows from the linux boot menu it just gives me a black screen saying error and then tells me to press ctrl + alt + delete and restarts the computer right back to the linux boot menu. I have tried the other partitions for windows recovery but it yields the same results. I can only load Ubuntu 12.10 for the OS. I can still access all my windows files from the hard drive. Every document and system file. I have tried going through the install disk but the only options are to erase and REinstall. Which is not what I want. Now I cant even get back into the install disk anymore, when I try to load it from the boot menu it just has a black screen and never loads. I have grown very impatient with this and as soon I get back on windows im deleting everything
How to properly install NVIDIA GeForce drivers on 13.04? (x64)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2013
I'd like to install the latest and greatest straight from NVIDIA, but I get an error message saying I need to log out of an X environment or something. Obviously using the default drivers doesn't deliver the best results.
What exactly can I do to install the latest drivers? If it matters, I have a 2GB GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

Convert a microsoft publisher file to pdf (or other format) on linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 27, 2010
Ok, this is the situation - I have been sent some file sI need to open but they are in .pub format. Having them sent in another format is not an option. I need to open them on Linux. Is there a tool which I can convert it into another format (preferably PDF) rather than having to mess around getting publisher installed on wine etc etc?
small distro + wine
location: linux.com - date: November 8, 2009
howdy folks ;)
I need a little help from y'all...
I'm looking for a small distro that can run wine relatively well and/or is not hell to install...
and I'll be running that linux distro on a virtual machine, hence the need for it to be lightweight
basically, I'm running two custom softwares for work in my home computer. one works fine in win7 (gasp! i know... i know...) while one does not. I thought "oh well, there's XP mode" but turns out my processor does not have the necessary features for it
I'm trying my luck if I can run the non-working software with wine.
any ideas? I was able to run wine relatively easily slax before (with some minor font problems) and have also made a virtual XP machine before in Ubuntu (in a separate partition) so I know I should still be able to function with two full blown OSes running alongside each other without crashing so here's hoping that win7+small distro should be fast enough as well
Inability to create Direct HAL device error (0x8876086) and €˜phantom€ Ubuntu bootup
location: linux.com - date: December 18, 2011
Please forgive the length of this â€“ I want to give as clear a picture as possible, in order to resolve the issues and get started with Ubuntu.
It seems that solutions are not very readily available, but I am willing to be patient and keep on doing research as I really would like to experience using Ubuntu.
I tried to install Ubuntu with Wubi and received the message
An error occurred.
No such file or directory.
For more information, please see the log file.
This said (a):
Ubuntu 11.10 installation error: Could not create DirectX HAL device (0x8876086)
I then uninstalled the program, removed all remaining files and rebooted.
On reboot I saw an option to use Ubuntu, but proceeded as normal with Windows 7.
I checked that there were no left over items, created a system restore point and tried again to reinstall with Wubi
Again, I received the same message.
I tried to use System Restore rather than uninstall Ubu
Openvpn connection refused (error 111)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 18, 2010
I have a problem and i was hoping someone could find a solution here.
What I wanted when i decided to install openvpn in my ubuntu server, was that i could connect to my private network outside (eg. my work) and access for instance other ports on that server (security) and other computers on it.
on my server side i get an error

dual boot linux and xp? or just linux alone?
location: linux.com - date: May 18, 2010
I know there are many threads about dual boot linux windows. I did a search but couldn't find for this specific question.
I'm planning to use Puppy Linux as my main OS on my P4 machine. I asked a friend of mine who knows Linux very well.
I asked should I install Puppy alone on my P4 machine? He told me that I should dual boot with XP because sometimes [COLOR="Blue"]Linux alone[/COLOR] does not compatible with graphic card, sound card, Ethernet adapter, etc...
If dual boot Linux with Windows. They both can share the same drivers. Is it true?
Is there a tool to monitor Internet connection speed and also network speed?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 14, 2003
Hi..I wanna know beside IPTRAF what other tools are availble for me to monitor my network speed and also Internet connection speed.IPTRAF seems to look like a nice tool but it is a bit hard to understand and decipher.Looks compicated.I have rough time having to explain to my collegue. Is there tools like this in GUI that most of us dont know.
The network is using 2Mbps leased line.Sometimes I won't even get that I wonder y?
