Backtrack Live & Ubuntu Persistence Dual Boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2011
Basically the question is is it possible????
Good Day Everyone:
Here is what I want to do, iso's ready and waiting to be installed after your help here hopefully.
I have a external hdd that I want to use it for Ubuntu and Backtrack together.
I need a Backtrack 5 in there as a Live CD so the settings of the Backtrack goes back to its original settings every time that I start it. In addition, I want to have Ubuntu installed in there as well but NOT as a Live CD perhaps as a Persistence Ubuntu so the folders and packages that I install stays there all the time. However, I also want both OS to be bootable in any machine. You guys know what i mean, start it from usb and there you go u have two OS to chose from.
The external HDD is big enough no problem with that.
So since I want to dual boot them together, I am not sure which OS i should install first on the harddrive. When the computer is starting I want to plug that usb HDD, and start the machine from the external then

[SOLVED] Cannot boot from Live DVD with Dell XPS 17 into Mint, Ubuntu or Fedora
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2012
I've tried to install Linux Mint 12 (DVD, 64-bit), Ubuntu 11.10 (64-bit) and Fedora 16 (64-bit) on a new Dell XPS 17 (L702X), which came preloaded with Windows 7. I've tried booting from a USB drive, using "Universal USB Installer". In all cases, I restart, then select USB in the BIOS.
For Mint and Ubuntu (both in normal and "compatibility mode") the boot stalls at:
Kali live usb issue: at the end of my rope.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 7, 2013
OK so evidently you cannot use unetbootin to make a live USB for Kali. I have been running sudo dd which appeared to work. Now I'm getting a "missing isolinux.bin" error when I try to use the live USB.
I have never had the problems trying to get a simple live USB to work as I have this piece of trash. Probably because I could use unetbootin on it and it just worked. I formatted the USB to be compatible with everything: should I use ext2 ore something?
The USB is 16 gigs in case that matters.
Anyone have a clue about this? I am using ubutnu 12.4 LTS updated today.
eth0 detected, no interenet on knoppix live dvd but works on ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2007
Ok, basically I've used the knoppix live dvd, i managed to get the internet working through eth0 once, but not again after this occasion
i first tried ubuntu live dvd to choose my preference (i prefer knoppix), as my ethernet modem uses DHCP, ubuntu and windows pick this up and the internet works without setting anything up, etc.
however on knoppix, i have encountered numerous "freezes" where i have to switch everything off and back on (including my ethernet modem) otherwise i cannot access the net on windows or ubuntu
i've tried netcardconfig, network-admin but nothing works, i realised that on network-admin my eth0 shows and when i click properties, it is marked as enabled and the drop down option shows "DHCP", when I click ok, I see the main network-admin screen and when I click "Activate" for eth0, i get an error about incorrect settings, cannot proceed, etc.
sometimes when i run netcardconfig it tries to autodetect dhcp but it fails, as so

hello and HELP!
in a rush a week ago i bought a laptop to take on a month long trip. am on the trip now and have been forced into running windows. uggh. i am unable to run any easy install version of linux on the machine in queston, a compaq presario v2000 (tried to post link, but am still too new... 1.5G Pentium M with centrino, 60G hd, 512M ram, 802.11g, dvd rw drive, wxga 14" screen) and do not have knowledge or experience (i am a newbie of sorts who has run a knoppix hd install, debian, and currently ubuntu 4.10 on my home pc - mostly self configuring distros) to figure out how to solve my current issues.
would like to run ubuntu 4.10 Warty on the laptop but failing that any linux distro that will work on the machine as xp is killing me.
i have the machine partitioned for dual boot. am running xp on the first partition 6G, will run linux distro on second part ~25G, have a crossover partition (fat 32) , and a 1G swap.
now to the specifics:

LIVE CD / Ubuntu / PCLinuxOS

hello to all of you here at linuxquestions.org
After an initial unsuccessful attempt a year back to dive into the world of linux, I think I am ready to begin again. But this time I want to go the LIVE CD way, to first evaluate which distro I feel most comfortable with before I go for an install.
(My last install of Fedora is still there on my disk, and probably untouched-the partitions are intact, but cannot access it after re-installing XP. The bootloader does not show the option to boot Fedora core at all. So I guess will have to start from scracth)
I wanted to try out ubuntu off a LIVE CD without doing an install. I downloaded the ISO file from here:
//releases.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu-6.06-alternate-i386.iso (have removed "http" from the beginning of the address as i am not allowed to post URLs)
The ISO file downloaded properly. I burnt the image properly to a CD. It also boots from the CD. But the problem is that it only displays me install options. I
CentOS is dead... Long live Scientific Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2011
The fans and users of CentOS, the most popular among the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clones, are slowly coming to a realisation that the project is grappling with serious troubles. As six months have passed since the release of RHEL 6 without any sign of CentOS 6, some are wondering whether they might not be better off using the "other" RHEL clone - Scientific Linux. Greg Smith summarises his feelings in "The rise and fall of CentOS": "If I needed a sign that it was time for me to start installing Scientific Linux 6, this week I found it. Any long-time user of RPM-based distributions has probably used a package from a Dag Wieers repository at some point. ... Well, that party is over. Last week Dag publicly announced that he was resigning from CentOS development work, seemingly over the development team's communication issues. In the comments there, Dag specifically suggests Scientific Linux as the right distribution to move to now, saying that 'their proces
updating GRUB in Scientific Linux 6.4 or Live Ubuntu 13.04

I've been working on dual booting Windows 7 and Scientific Linux 6.4 on my computer (HP Pavilion dv6 with i686 processor and nvidia GEFORCE GT graphics card), and I've run into some trouble with the actual dual boot part.
I couldn't install SL6.4 originally because I got a warning that said "Disks sda, sdb contain BIOD RAID metadata, but are not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disks sda, sdb."
I followed the instructions from asymptoticFault on this page http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2038121 After I deleted the metadata, I was then able to put SL6.4 on the parition. I ran into the same problem as asymptoticFault with GRUB, but, I think since I was only using a live version of Ubuntu, I was unable to use "update-grub" because "error-failed to get canonical path of /cow".
I tried to follow the instructions from http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair...d#.UbhsJ9I3tCg but, perhaps since I an using SL6.4 instead of Ubuntu, w
