Ubuntu 10.04 will not install over Debian 502
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2010
I have Debian 502 installed on a Dell Petntium 4 (3.40Ghz). It installed fine and works fine. I have decided to try Ubuntu 10.04. I was able to run Ubuntu 10.04 from the boot disk so I think the boot disk is fine.
Now I want to cleanly remove Debian and install 10.04. I have not been able to do that. I have tried several times over several days to do a fresh install from the Ubuntu 10.04 boot screen (it asked to run from CD or install Ubuntu.) I take all the defaults and change only to Central time. It eventually gets to a blank purple hue screen and that's it.
So, I think I want to just start over and completely wipe out Debian first. I have nothing on Debian that I need. Then I will install Ubuntu 10.04 after the machine is cleaned of Debian. Could someone please give me the steps to do that? (Please know I am new to Linux and Ubuntu and details would be greatly appreciated).
Open Office will not install on factory install of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on Dell Mini 10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 31, 2009
I tried installing Open Office 3 and it would not run. It kept saying something about not finding the expected i386 architecture when I tried to install in terminal. However the Intel Atom is an x86 processor so it should work. It boogered the system up so bad that I restored it back to factory fresh. This install came with Open Office 2.4. It has only 3 of the apps installed. When I try to install the full version I get the same problem. The problem seems to stem mostly from the database application. I don't need the app right now but it would be great to get it working. So does anyone have any ideas? Or maybe a different Office type suite that will run on Ubuntu 8.04 that can deal with the docx format now out in MS Office?

Computer ran a long time without problems under W2k,the only change was a new DVD burner, which I have now taken out again. I would like to install Ubuntu.
The computer is absoutely determined not to install ubuntu, I have now tried everything I know for two days.
Firsst CD, installed 10.10 without problems on another computer last week, endless problems, eventually I was able to run "check CD" and there were 3 file errors.
Burn a second CD. No file errors.
The installation often stops for no apparent reason (typically blinking dash top left, no CD or disc noises or lights for a long time).
I have also tried the "try out" option, which sometimes got as far as a request to log on, although I had not configured any user. I found some suggestions what to try in the forums, but have not got so far again since.

Ubuntu will not shut down fully
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2006
I have a couple of questions. I am dual booting Ubuntu 6.06 64 bit edition with Suse 10.1 64 bit edition on my HP Pavilion dv 5000. The Ubuntu distribution works great but will not shut down entirely until I hit the power button towards the very end. When booting the CD I had to use the following boot parameters: noapic, nolapic, acpi=off. I am wondering if any of these boot parameters have any influence on the computer not shutting down fully? Is it the acpi=off option that is the root of the problem? If so, will I be able to enable acpi and be able to boot properly, now that the distribution is fully installed on my hard drive? If I can in fact turn acpi on, how do I do this within Ubuntu? I am not entirely familiar with this distribution and it does not have any readily apparent tools to do this.
My other question is with regard to various partitions used by the two distributions such as var, opt, usr and home. Is it possible for two different distributions to use
Ubuntu will not BOOT after changing xorg.conf settings
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2012
So I am running Ubuntu on a Zotac ZBOX with an AMD graphics card. And I am trying to switch the colour display output from 24bit to 32bit.
After viewing some forums and videos, I tried to change the setting in the xorg.conf file under DefaultDepth to 32 rather than 24.
Initially, when rebooting again, i got the error of "Your system is running on low graphics" and did not let me go into the ubuntu user interface. After messing around with some other settings in xorg.conf, now when i try to reboot, it stops at the screen where it shows the ubuntu logo and loading dots under the logo and is stuck there.
Not sure what to do for next step.
[SOLVED] Ubuntu will not load, but starts in terminal after trying to report bug in Wine.

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?
