Mepis installation problem on FS Amilo M3438
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2005
I`ve been using Mepis on my desktop for a while now.Being rather fond of it,I`ve decided to try installing it on my laptop as well.My problem is that when I try running Mepis off the live cd it stops when it tries to load the cpufreq support giving a segementation fault error.That is when use the 2.6 Kernel
When I use the 2.4 Kernel it gets past that step(I`m assuming it downsteps the processor automatically or identifies it as a slower one since it keeps running properly)I do get Mepis to work in this case,however the 2.4 Kernel is unable to see any hard drives since both of them are SATA(in particular the infamous VT6421 ones which have made me hate VIA SATA with a passion)
My cpu is an intel pentium M 750,from what I`ve heard the centrinos generally tend to cause cpufreq module problems on downsteppings and such but in my case it fails to work with it at all.
I`m not overly experienced with Linux installation problems on laptops(since I`ve always used desktops in the past

I just burned a live CD from SimplyMepis-CD_8.0.12-rel_32.iso. All went well, but I can't find the installation center so that I can fully install it om my computer. I can login with demo or root, but I don't know where or how to set up my machine. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you for any help.

Amd Athlon 2400+
1gig ddr 2700 ram
Win Xp sda 160 GB Eide
Linux Mepis 7.0 sdb 40 GB Eide
Downloaded Mepis 7.0 from ftp gatech and installed it as a replacement for an earlier version of Mepis 7.0. In the Install had it check for bad blocks and according to dmesg several noted. OS would not completely boot up requiring a login. Ran live CD and obtained dmesg. I would like to find the fix for this. Thanks

New Installation of MEPIS X is eating up memory and CPU
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2008
I decided to go for a Ubuntu based distro after living with Slackware for many years so I installed MEPIS 7 on my desktop (AMD 3800+ X2, 1 GB DDR, Nvidia 6600 GT 128 MB). On Slack I had my Desktop set to a slideshow as well as the screensaver and I had Superkaramba running. I wanted the same thing with MEPIS so I set it up and used my old config files (.themes and .superkaramba) from Slack. All the programs work, however the superkaramba hardware monitor reports that X is the top process at around 30% and one of the two CPUs is constantly at 90 - 100%. In Slack I did not see this behaviour at all. In Slack I would get X as the top process with nothing else running, but it would be at 5% and same with the CPU. Now in MEPIS things are running slow. I'm not sure where to look (kernel module?) since everything work just fine out of the box. In the meantime I am going to disable the desktop slideshow and Superkaramba when I get home later today to see if there is a difference.
Also I am
New to PC and Mepis with a virgin HD ;) Installation doubts.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 20, 2004
First of all, thanks for reading this.
I'm a Mac OS X user forced to use a PC at work just to run two applications, but I'm still in the process of buying it. I must say I have only occasionally used a PC, but have never owned one. So, please, don't assume I have any Windows or PC hardware knowledge. I have always used Macs.
After looking around and instaling a few linux distros on VirtualPC for Mac OS X, I'm decided to install Mepis (the one I like the most), Fedora and probably Libranet on the very roomy 160 GB HD the PC is gonna have, along with a copy of Windows 2000 (or XP), just in case a Windows application can't be run through Wine. That is a total of 4 bootable OS's, plus separate partitions for my /home folders (can only one be shared?) and any other dedicated partition any of the distros may require.
If possible, I'd like to share the swap partition among the linux distros (the computer is gonna have 1 GB RAM (2x512 MB)). The Windows partition doesn'
Advice with installation Ubuntu Vs Redhat Vs Fedora?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2011
I have a server at godaddy on Red Hat Fedora Core 8 and I want to set up a home server for development and backups for the live server.
The server i bought for home use is set up for RAID usage. I want the server to mirror the harddrives so whatever i do on one is saved on the other too. There was a step in the setup where it asks to partition the drives It asks if I want to LVM the drives with or without encryption or just partition the whole thing.
Realistically the ultimate goal of my home server is to have 2 or 3 people working from their macs and code on the server so we can test how the live server would react without uploading it to the live server. We will use version tracker.
Anyone have any advice or instructions on how to install? And whether or not I have to buy the Red Hat license or according to info provided I should use the Fedora project version?
Mepis vs Ubuntu/Kubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 20, 2005
Pros: I would say near 100% Debian compatible, it even uses debian repositories, I really like that. Nice 2.4 and 2.6 kernel support, all the programs work well in Mepis (Wine, Crossover, VMware Workstation - full HD support)
Cons: A one man based distro, there are not many Mepis users, small community. Warren is a genius of Linux but I'd rather be part of a big community.
Pros: Really nice distro, awesome job, it's a whole community behind the distros
Cons: I really dislike the idea of using a distro that does not users Debian repositories. For instance, I searched for "klineak" and I didn't got any result in Synaptic (I enabled all the repositories)
So, I will appreciate any opinions about my post, I'm really undecided. I want to use a Distro that has a good community, and I want to be able to access the Debian repositories, which are HUGE and are the main reason I'm behind Ubuntu/Kubuntu and Mepis
I was using Mepis, but then the new Mepis was r
Recovering Ubuntu installation without losing data
location: linux.com - date: September 13, 2010
Moving back to Ubuntu, I think so far no disto is better...
I am still not good with the command line nor the different ways to solve my Linux problems, so here is what I need and will explain what I did till i reached the problem...
I need to recover installed Ubuntu or maybe I just need to install a new boot loader.
I have done the following to reach my current condition:
I used to have Mint, and I wanted to Install Ubuntu on a new physical drive sdb1, to keep it away from any ups and downs I am doing while studying redhat (which will be installed instead of Mint on sda1 at the end), and move the bookmarks, emails, everything from the Mint to Ubuntu, and in case of any crash, I would just remove some lines from the Ubuntu grub, and start a new life with another redhat kernel.
As Mint was originally installed, the bootloader was on the original drive sda1.
I thought RedHat 6 installation manager will detect the bootloader, remove the Mint loading line and replace it with the t
Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop
location: linux.com - date: June 19, 2012
I was about to install Ubuntu server (ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64) from USB drive. The installation went well, until the very end - installation instructed me to remove the USB so the system could boot into new OS. I´ve removed it, confirmed and the setup went from aprox 95% to (i guess, it was very quickly) 100% but instead of then rebooting, it went back to the main install menu, "finish the installation" being selected.
Finishing the installation few more times didnt help either and since there is no reboot option in install menu, I had to do a hard reset. As expected, I was not offered to boot Linux after that last reset (only already installed Win7 and Win8).
I am afraid that if I repeat the installation this would happen again. Any ideas?
As you prob can tell from the very beginning, I am very new to Linux :(
