Ubuntu 9.10 livecd will not boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2010
Intel core2 duo on dg965wh board, 4G ram. 500Gb HD partitioned 100G for W xp sp3 and the rest unpartitioned. Motherboard has latest bios and is set to boot from CD.
The 9.10 download burnt on CD will boot, ask for language option and go to the main screen. I cannot make it proceed to installation. I can go to F1, F4 etc, but selecting any of the options on the screen simply sits there - there is some minimal activity in the CD and then it just reverts back to nothing.
Any suggestions will be welcome.
I realize I can use WUBI but I prefer not to be under the windoze umbrella and would like to have a true raw boot of ubuntu preferably with a core boot manager that is also outside of windows.
[SOLVED] Gparted will not partition my hardrive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2011
I am trying to get linux puppy to boot from my hard drive but in order to do that i have to partition my hard drive. My hard drive is 20GB and currently has a windows 98 OS. I dont want the windows 98 OS to even be on the computer anymore. I am trying to partition my hard drive with gparted. My problem is everything is grayed out and it says i need to unmount my hard drive. When i click unmount, it says "could not unmount /dev/sda1" then under that it says "unmount:can't unmount /initrd/mnt/dev_save: device or resource is busy."
GNOME terminal will not open in Ubuntu 10.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2011
I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 for about a month with no problems.
I've installed recommended packages as needed but nothing else.
For some reason, when I open a terminal window now, it cursur flashes for a few seconds then the window closes. I have researched the problem a little bit.
I tried installing Konsole to see if I can get an error message that's of some use.
When I open Konsole it displays: "Warning: Program '/bin/bash' crashed."
Any ideas what to make of this?
Xinetd will not start a service after receiving a connection on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2013
I have configured xinetd on my Ubuntu server to run a shell script when it receives a connection on port 25565, and I have tested the shell script and it is working. However, xinetd does not start the script and I am not sure why. Please tell me if I am missing something obvious. I flushed my iptables first so that I know they are not interfering. My xinetd.conf file is:
Xorg configure will not run
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 4, 2013
I upgraded from ubuntu 11.04 to 12.04 through 11.10. The only resolution that now works is 800x600. The display is unknown. The display manger gives an option of 1024X768, but using this, the left part of the desktop is off the display.
I am running the same hardware with freeBSD 8.2 at 1280x768 with no problem.
An earlier thread suggested creating an xorg.conf file with the correct parameters for the Intel graphics.
I tried to run Xorg -configure after booting into recovery mode. I got an error saying that display 0 was running. Also a line saying to remove a file in /tmp that did not exist to get it to run. I did not think to copy the error message to a file so I could paste it here, but this is the gist of it.
Any idea why Xorg -configure thinks display 0 is running? Any suggestion on what to do to get it to run?
Are the ubuntu and freesbd xorg.conf enough alike so that I could copy the one from freebsd into ubuntu and not destroy anything when I try booting ubuntu.?

Ubuntu will not update
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 22, 2012
I never have had problem updating my ubuntu 12.04
The update program suggests the needed updates but returns an error message when update is requested and suggests that I have a bad internet connection (not likely) ?
Any thoughts ?
Can't edit grub.cfg; Ubuntu will not save the file even though I use sudo
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 15, 2009
I'm trying to edit the grub.cfg file in /boot/grub/. I'm using the command:
sudo gedit grub.cfg
while in the appropriate directory. I removed the lines for the last two editions of Ubuntu, then I hit "save". I got an error stating:
Could not save the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again.
I've made numerous changes to both grub and other protected files this way and never had a problem. What gives?
External hard disk drive will not show
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2012
I have an problem with mounting external hard disk drives on my Ubuntu computer. Let me start with some basic info about my computer.
CPU/APU: AMD E-350 Dual Core
Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin with the latest updates.
Search-word on Google and on Ubuntu forums "External drive won't mount", "drive not found" and an combination of these.
I found that I can list the drives that system sees.
The result of fdisk is

nfs: fstab will not mount at boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 15, 2005
I have a small network of two linux computers.
I can ping and ssh: It works very well.
I have nfs running, and I would like to mount the other computer's filesystem.
I have this line in /etc/fstab :
p4.home.net:/ /mnt/nfs-p4 nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0
Which I hoped would mount the p4.home.net root partition at boot, but it does not.
If I type mount p4.home.net:/ as root, the remote filesystem is mounted correctly.
Why doesn't this happen automatically?
