System will not reboot following fresh install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 24, 2013
Hi - I have used Ubuntu previously and have always been impressed.
I recently decided to install the new Unbuntu Desktop 13.04 on a new 120Gb SSD SATA disc drive.
As I didn't have an iso disc, I first installed Fedora 19 from a magazine Live DVD and that install worked fine. Rebooted fine and got into the system.
I then downloaded Ubuntu 13.04 from the Ubuntu site and burnt the image to a DVD. I had to use a DVD instead of a CD as the size was over 700 Mb (shame about that Ubuntu!).
Anyway - to the point. I then booted from the Ubuntu DVD iso and installed Ubuntu 13.04 with the option to first format the whole disc drive.
The install was successful. There was then a prompt to restart at which point, the DVD ejected automatically. Then I hit enter and the system attempted to reboot.
It gets past the initial boot screen with the machine logo and recognition of discs etc and then reaches a blank screen with the cursor flashing and stalls at that point indefinitely.
I tried the whole ins
Ubuntu 12.04 will not shutdown; it hangs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
I'm brand new to the forums! I am running a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and now my computer will not shutdown with regularity. (Sometimes it shuts down, usually it hangs on the Ubuntu screen with one or no dots colored orange.) Restart seems to work well most of the time (as in that only hung once).
I tried going to the safe mode to start and reboot from there; that seems to shutdown just fine.
From the regular (non-safe) version of 12.04, I tried typing in
sudo shutdown now
and could see that shutdown froze on the error
modem-manager: <info> ModemManager (version 0.5.2.0) starting...
modem-manager: Could not get the system bus. Make sure the message bus daemon is running! Message: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Ubuntu will not shut down fully
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2006
I have a couple of questions. I am dual booting Ubuntu 6.06 64 bit edition with Suse 10.1 64 bit edition on my HP Pavilion dv 5000. The Ubuntu distribution works great but will not shut down entirely until I hit the power button towards the very end. When booting the CD I had to use the following boot parameters: noapic, nolapic, acpi=off. I am wondering if any of these boot parameters have any influence on the computer not shutting down fully? Is it the acpi=off option that is the root of the problem? If so, will I be able to enable acpi and be able to boot properly, now that the distribution is fully installed on my hard drive? If I can in fact turn acpi on, how do I do this within Ubuntu? I am not entirely familiar with this distribution and it does not have any readily apparent tools to do this.
My other question is with regard to various partitions used by the two distributions such as var, opt, usr and home. Is it possible for two different distributions to use
Ubuntu will not BOOT after changing xorg.conf settings
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2012
So I am running Ubuntu on a Zotac ZBOX with an AMD graphics card. And I am trying to switch the colour display output from 24bit to 32bit.
After viewing some forums and videos, I tried to change the setting in the xorg.conf file under DefaultDepth to 32 rather than 24.
Initially, when rebooting again, i got the error of "Your system is running on low graphics" and did not let me go into the ubuntu user interface. After messing around with some other settings in xorg.conf, now when i try to reboot, it stops at the screen where it shows the ubuntu logo and loading dots under the logo and is stuck there.
Not sure what to do for next step.
Gnome Desktop/Home Screen will not displayAcer Aspire One Netbook
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 29, 2009
I'm a complete layman, this being my first foray into Linux, caused by my daughter's netbook going belly-up. So, don't expect much sense off me.
After a period with no use, the netbook developed a couple of problems. First, the battery would not retain a charge at all, which I solved by installing an updated BIOS (also a first for me). However, this didn't solve the other problem, which is that the home screen will not display i.e no icons. The only element that displays is a search bar which can be used for internet searches (firing up Firefox) or to search 'Desktop'.
Poking around a bit, I've managed to get an error message that the Nautilus File Manager is not running but I haven't a clue how to fix that, or even if it is relevant to the problem. After some research I think I can start a console by starting an executable 'exterm' but what to do with the thing escapes me.
I stumbled onto System Monitor which says I have Gnome Kernel Linux 126.96.36.199lw but that's all I'v
ati drivers will not enable
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 8, 2007
ok i just did a minor upgrade on a really old pc. stuck an ati 9600 pro into it. booted the computer up, went into low graphics mode and once i was logged in, ubuntu picked up the card, downloaded the drivers, then told me to restart. i did the restart but the driver will not become enabled. i went into the restricted drivers menu, the driver is listed there with a check mark, however there is a red light saying "not enabled". i tried another restart again hoping that would get the driver enabled. when booting up xorg tries to start up a few times but then gives up. im now just looking at a command prompt. i tried to log in, it looks like it does the log in, but then brings me right back to the login prompt.
ubuntu will not install on amd duron 1.3ghz+ 512mb ram.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 27, 2008
I have a pc with an AMD duron 1.3ghz processor and 512mb of ram.
When i use the ubuntu live cd (8.04) and select live cd mode, the splash screen comes up followed by cli text.
Busy box v 1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) built-in shell (ash)
Enter "help" for a list of built-in commands.
this appears to be a command prompt of ash. I tried "help" but this just gave me the built in ash commands (eg. echo,exit,export,rmdir,mkdir)
how can I boot off the live cd without this happening?
P.S i tried to install ubuntu from the main menu and the same occours.
Windows 7 now will not boot and Ubuntu failed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 22, 2013
Some of you may have notice my other thread about have trouble with getting Ubuntu installed over the last 4 days due to EFI and manual partitioning confusion. On the advice of a member, which I may not have followed correctly, I chose to partition 500 MB and set as a EFI bootloader and assign the grub to boot on that partition. Still got the same crash as before and Ubuntu failed to install. And now Windows 7 will not boot. It looks like Ubuntu is no longer booting in EFI but legacy as I noticed a different screen and remember reading about the different screens between Ubuntu and EFI and Legacy modes. My priority is to recover my Windows 7 cause it would be a disaster to lose it considering my work on it. Then, I would like to run Ubuntu alongside. I have backed up windows 7 on my flash but have no idea where to go. Can someone help? Thanks in advance. If I sound desperate, that's because I am. Thanks.

iTunes 8 on Wine Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition WILL NOT INSTALL!!!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2009
I am trying to get iTunes 8 installed. I don't know if I can only use
iTunes V 7.3 or what. I've installed Wine 1.1.13 . I downloaded iTunesSetup.exe and ran the wine iTunesSetup.exe command in Terminal, and get this:
wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\iTunesSetup.exe": Module not found
I've tried inserting the .exe into the system32 file (I can't remember where I found the file, but I did), and still no luck. Is it the fact that I'm trying to install the 64-bit version of iTunes?
In Wine, autodetect is on, I did the check boxes for ALSA driver, and XP option is on. Is it the fact that a Vista option would have to be present in order to use iTunes 8? WHAT DO I DO?
I want to have A version of iTunes, simply because the open source players really suck HAIRY MONKEY BALLS.
