I am curious about dipping my toes into arch linux and was wondering if a dual boot with a computer already running ubuntu would be possible, and if so how I would go about doing this.
Error 11 How to fix boot loader?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 22, 2009
This one is killing me. I did a routine update via update manager. It asked for a reboot and I did so. Then I received an Error 11, Unrecognized Device String. I cannot boot at all under any of the options. That was two days ago. I have no idea how to fix this. I am trying to boot from a live cd to reinstall grub into my MBR as per the first set of instructions in this link.
However, when booting with the live cd I am presented with these options at the splash screen:
Boot from first hard drive
Rescue Broken System
My questions are:
1) How do I repair this error 11 in grub?
2) If I do repair it by reinstalling grub onto my MBR as per the first set of instructions in the link, how do I "Boot the Desktop Live CD and then open a terminal"? Should it boot automatically or do I have to select repair broken system?
Thanks. Any help is strongly appreciated. At wits end.
I have a serval an
LXer: Linux Kernel Boot Statistics: 2.6.24 To 2.6.39

Published at LXer:
Recently there were benchmarks on Phoronix looking at the Ubuntu 11.04 boot performance relative to past Ubuntu Linux releases. This was done with five mobile systems and going back as far as Ubuntu 8.04. The tests showed around Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was where the boot performance in Ubuntu's been the best but Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 have slowed down a bit in how fast it's reaching the desktop. In this article we are looking at the boot performance when simply changing out the kernels. Every kernel from Linux 2.6.24 to 2.6.39-rc4 was analyzed.

I'm new to Linux and want to try it out, so I chose Linux Mint. I hope you can help me.
Now, I tried alot of things, I have a sheet full of commands, errors and boot parameters on my desk, but I can't get Linux to boot. This is my hardware configuration:

Linux Mint boot issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2012
Hello. I have a computer that I want to run Linux Mint on. However, at the end, the wizard told me that it could not load Grub on the computer. So i clicked OK, as i had no other choice , and it restarted. But instead of taking me to Linux mint, it loaded Windows XP Professional. So i need to know if i can either add Linux Mint to XP boot loader, or should i install Grub Manually. I would need help with that in either scenario. It is a Dell Latitude D610 with XP Professional and (hopefully) Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon.
P.S. I'm pretty sure Linux mint is based on Ubuntu, and i already had an account here, that's why i posted here. If I'm wrong, sorry.
How'd you partition for linux multi boot and why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2007
What would your partition plan be for lets say 3 different distro's?
I've got 2 extra partitions for experimenting and edutainment:
128 MB /boot for all kernels
10GB Ubuntu root
5GB extra distro
5GB extra distro
210GB /home Ubuntu only
The extra distro's will have their /home on the root partition.
In hindsight I'd probably have set it up differently but I'm not exactly sure how.
Slightly off topic but after reading the Slackbook I wonder:
- Why would you have a separate /usr/local partition?
- How can a separate /var partition enhance performance?
