Partition unmounting/deleting issues with GParted Ubuntu 9.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 17, 2010
I am using GParted and I want to delete some partitions and merge them. I had 2 parts for windows (swap and the main files) plus a part for recovery. THEN I had one big partition split into multiple partitions. One for the Linux files and one swap area. Somehow these were split a bunch of times and I can't seem to be able to combine them. The best I can do is resize them and reallocate the space but this leaves little divider "chunks" of space up to 1.6 GB in size! I just want to delete a few useless partitions and merge them. My partition table looks like so:
How to format disk with corrupted partitions?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 9, 2010
I got a 40GB seagate HDD which has got through some unsuccessful windows and linux installations and now all the partition tables are corrupted... I tried to format with System>Administration>DiskUtility but it gives this error when I'm do:
Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: Error calling fsync(2) on /dev/sdb: Input/output error
gParted was not even useful since it didn't not even detected the drive...
Isn't there any simple way to format the crap from the Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD??? I believe that on windows, there wouldn't be that problem since the "format c:" crap just format the drive without asking questions... All I want to do is to format the drive so I can create partitions later. Also, I have only access to the live CD and I don't have any Diskette drive installed... I believe we now live in a world where this crap isn't needed to fix a computer... ><
Anyway, I hope anyone have an answer for me and I'm waiting impatiently for it
Ubuntu issues with AMD 64
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 15, 2006
I can't get a few things to install and a few others won't run after installation. Specifically, Micromedia Flash Player won't install, and Easyubuntu won't open after installation. Is this an AMD 64 problem or just a Newbie malfunction?

Issues with XEN PV guest installation: Bad Archive error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2013
Hello. I am very new to xen and just recentley set up Xen on Ubuntu server 12.04. I did a guided partition with LVM and followed the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen. The installation went find and the server is up and running nicely. Everything went fine until i tried to install my PV guest. I just used the basic guid on the link i posted for manually installing a PV guest. During the creation of the vm the ubuntu installer says my archive link is bad. I am just using the standard united states archive. My settings are as follows:
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet manual

Xen 4.1 & Ubuntu 12.10 having issues with Unity
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 14, 2012
1) Installed Ubuntu 12.10 on an ASUS G73 Laptop with no issues.
2) Installed Xen 4.1 following the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen
3) Completed instructions upto the reboot. This is when issues started.
(minor) Grub does not default to Xen boot.
(major) Unity briefy starts and then appears to crash? I.E. I see the logon screen for a brief moment then it goes away followed shortly by the mouse cursor. Alt-F1'ing over to a terminal and running startx will bring up the desktop but with out any bars, i.e. no side or top bar. Making the desktop unusable. I am still able to bypass Xen and boot stright into the OS and it works fine.
I failed to limit volume size of Dom0.
I failed to patch the OS before installing Xen, I did patch after wards by booting stright into OS.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen is not entirely accurate for 12.10. I am will edit it after I get through the process if this will be useful. Thoughts?
Issues with Ubuntu 12.10, can you recommend a better distro?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 12, 2013
I've just had my first go at installing Linux. I went with Ubuntu 12.10 but found a lot of issues when I installed it.
First of all it says it wants to track everything I do, including my keystrokes, which is a bit creepy.
Secondly, this might be the case with all distros, but it asked for my password 3 times in 10 minutes. When I first went on, when I went to install I think it was adobe to watch youtube, and then afterwards youtube still didn't work.
It then went to a black screen (with writing), saying there was something wrong with the battery, finally came back on asking for my password again, and then went black again.
I got it from this site http://www.ubuntu.com/download/deskt...dows-installer and it's on an ASUS Pro50N (I think 2008). Maybe a more distro would be better for my computer? I'd like to learn to code, starting with Python, and eventually design in CAD (I'm a cabinetmaker) and to be able to design websites. I realise I don't need Linux to do this but
Having issues with opening .7zip files?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 4, 2013
I want to open .7zip files, and I tried to download 7zip using the Ubuntu Software Centre, and it came up with a prompt saying something about it requires restricted files or something (I can't remember exactly as I am not on my home computer right now). And it had two buttons "Okay" and "Repair." And neither one of those buttons did anything.
Someone give me some help here?
Issues with Ubuntu 9.10 on HP2133
location: linux.com - date: November 1, 2009
I had 9.04 running rather smoothly on my HP2133. Now I updated to 9.10 - and here are my problems ...
- The Boot menu doesn't list 9.10, just 9.04 - but does load 9.10. That's probably due to me saying to keep the old menu.lst and not much of a problem.
- When it loads, it says "longhaul is currently broken in your configuration". ??
- Also, there is an error message saying that the swap partition could not be mounted - has never been a problem before.
- Way more annaoying are the next two problems: the touchpad does not work anymore (USB mouse oK) - and there's no sound, not even an audio device apart from "Dummy stereo".
Other than that, it really looks nice - and I was tempted to try out the Ubuntu One service :-)
Looks like kind of a lecture on "Never change a running system", eh? Any hints on hoew to reslove these problems? Uh - I'm not much of a Linux crack, by the way, so....
Any helpful hint is greatly appreciated.
[SOLVED] issues with qmail on trying to install package with aptget
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 16, 2013
I've used linux for several years but still feel a newbie in many areas, so I hope this post is suitable for this forum.
I recently installed linux Mint14 (+Mate) on my laptop. All seemed well until I needed to install the gmt (general mapping tools) package. I tried this with sudo apt-get install and subsequently with the package manager GUI. In both cases I was told that the installation had failed because of dependency issues involving qmail. (Incidentally I had the same problem when trying to install the mahjong game, but I can live without that.)
Now I do not really know what qmail is, nor why it is involved in this process or the package, but looking into the detailed error report, it said that I needed a fqdn. I do not really know what this is either, nor how it is set, nor why I have not hit this problem before (in Ubuntu 10.04 and earlier distributions), but a websearch suggested to me that maybe there was something missing from my /etc/hosts file. In case that i
