9.04 clean install vs. upgrade
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 27, 2009
The clean install is something I have always thought best, but it requires time to get all your bells and whistles just so. The two 9.04 upgrades from, one an 8.10 clean install and the other from 8.04 to 8.10 to 9.04 all went so well and everything is working, why bother with the clean install? Or am I just lazy?
Clean disk space in Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 9, 2013
since last week I receive automatical warnings, that I have only 350-400 MB free on my file system (/root is 8 GB large). How can I clean some space? To be honest, I didn't expect that - more or less - standard installation of Ubuntu will consume all 8 GB of the space. I have nothing special installed...
Thanks in advance,
12.04 clean install now only get "input not supported" msg
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 7, 2012
Had dual boot XP & Ubuntu 10.11. Now finally getting rid of XP.
Did clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 using entire disk.
AMD Athlon 64X2 5200+
1.9 GiB RAM
500 GiB free HD space
After initial install, password entries were not accepted, they were defined as "invalid password".
Now when booting up I see the MSI Motherboard V-Class screen flash up, (I can get into the bios setup there) but after that, all I get is a box slowly bouncing across the screen saying "Input not Supported"
I have a NVidia GeForce graphics card. I suspect that this may be causing the problem. I have seen some have problems with the nvidia drivers.
I tried F6 during boot splash screen so I could use nomodeset, but F6 gets no response.
I don't know how to address the issue since I cannot get to terminal.
I tried the Demo feature of the 12.04 CD and opened terminal there.
Then I did this in Terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

File system NOT clean error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 26, 2012
I have a dual boot laptop running Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.10. The internal hard disk has 3 main partitions: 1 for Windows, 1 for Linux and 1 that I call New Volume for files I transfer between the two operating systems (mostly music and images). I also have a 1TB USB drive attached.
I installed a bunch of updates to Ubuntu 11.10 yesterday and this morning I can't write to my USB drive or to partition used for storing/swapping files; both mount as read only. In an effort to sort the problem I used Disk Utility to unmount the New Volume partition and checking the file system I get a message saying "file system NOT clean". Clicking the check and repair file system button again just crashes Disk Utility and I have no idea what to do to rectify the situation. Can anyone help?
I should add: I can read and write as normal when running Windows.

Cached RAM clean
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 13, 2007
any ideas why my system is using nearly the whole amount of RAM (8GB) ?
I'm runnig ubuntu 7.10,
my system hw:2x Xeon 2.2 GHz, 8GB RAM ...
I running only MySQL.
Today morning I was checking it and it was using about 2.5 GB RAM, then I copied one file cca 200GB from another system to linux share and now it's using nearly all RAM.
Is there a way to release it or clean it?
GRUB loading, please wait... Error 22 after supposed clean install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2007
the previous screen statement says "
Booting from local disk...
GRUB Loading stage1.5. "
the distro CD Im using is Ubuntu version 6.06 LTS for a x86 PC
screen shows cursor blinking but never more than that....
Gigabyte P965 MB
brand new PC that runs Windows XP just fine (I took the XP drive out to eliminate any confusion)
If I boot from the Ubuntu CD it gets to
"Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel."
and again the screen never advances past that... (ok I waited 15 mins but thats already ridiculous)
if the process needs more time than 30 secs it should present the user with some kind of feedback
this must be some real SFB software
Not sure whats quite wrong here....
Clean install on Macs
location: linux.com - date: January 31, 2011
Hi all, I'm starting a project that involves finding used computers that are too slow or that users have otherwise gotten frustrated with. I'll clean install Vinux on them completely wiping the hard drives and our little group will then find users who can benefit from an inexpensive accessible computer. Vinux is based on Ubuntu and has been tweaked to peak the performance of Orca and a few other accessible features so I'll also be concerned about not breaking Orca or some other part of the speech or magnification works or the sound package, or if something does break, getting it fixed. Info about Vinux is at vinux.org.uk.
I've done the installs replacing Microsoft and I know it's probably a matter of time until I'm given a Mac. In general, how do I clean install on Macs? I'm going to assume that there might be some differences between brands and models and between desktops and lap tops, but in general, what am I looking at? When I get hit with the bucket of spit I want to be ready.
Clean ubuntu to free up disk space

The ubuntu 9.10 cloud server has left only 900MB of disk space. I'll just empty the directory /tmp and wondering if there is any other location to clean up.
