ubuntu graphic card error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 7, 2013
when booting with ubuntu 12.04, I sometimes get a huge error that prevents me from getting to the log in screen. The error window I get is this one (though the image isn't mine, I'm not running a VM: http://i.imgur.com/QaP9d.png).
I think this is due to my graphic card (nvidia 680 gtx). I have the recommended (proprietary) driver.
The log files can be found here http://speedy.sh/nvNuB/failsafeX-backup.tar.gz.
Can you help me figure out what's wrong please ?

Ubuntu Base System error on install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2006
Hi and thanks! New to Linux, novice computer user. I've been reading posts on many sites for a similar problem and seen many other screen shots, but I'm getting cross-eyed and need to ask before I go blind!
I have been using XP Home SP2 on an 80G WD Hard Drive and recently added a second identical HD. I want to use the second one for a backup of the C drive of XP, but mainly for a basic Linux system, and I have decided on Ubuntu, the latest version. I have the iso burned on a cd and gone through the partitioning of the second HD to sizes I want so that has gone well. After partitioning and the installing begins, during the Base System Install, it stops and tells me there is and error and it is posted in /target/var/log/bootstrap.log and the installation is incomplete. If I choose to ignore the error and continue, the other programs start to load but then they also stop and I cannot complete the installation. I'm not sure how to access this log file or complete the setup but I

New Ubuntu install, getting error message on boot.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 3, 2009
have been having some issues with tight vnc, then switched to x11vnc, now getting this message on boot:
Error activating XKB configuration.
It can happen under various circumstances:
- a bug in libxklavier library
- a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
- X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation
X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation
If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
i suspect something to do with the keyboard config, but dont know how to adjust?
also, quite often now any form field will grab a letter and just keep repeating it, this will carry over to other applications.
should i report this as a bug?
Ubuntu Install Partition Error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 2, 2008
I have Windows Xp installed on a 320 GB SATA drive in a single partition. There is 278 GB of unused space. When I boot Ubuntu 7.10 from the CD it goes to the point of setting up the partitions. No matter which option I choose (manual, guided, etc) I get a generic error that Ubuntu cannot create the partition. The only I option I have is to terminate installation. XP starts up normally and everything is fine except I CAN"T INSTALL UBUNTU. I have installed SUSE 10.3 in the past and did not have this issue. Since removing SUSE I have deleted the partitions and resized the disk using Partition Magic 8.0. also ran FIXMBR so that my installtion of UBUNTU would be clean. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Ubuntu 10.10; error: file not found. Grub rescue>
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 17, 2010
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7.
I installed Ubuntu 10.07, rebooted few times and all went well.
However, after stating Windows 7 I could no longer get the system to boot.
I saw a post from Colin Watson and he mention that I should render GRUB2 unbootable to see if Win 7 boots;
I don't know how to do that.
I goggled about the subject and there are 1000's of posting; difficult to find what I need since no post match my case.
Last night I tried all things that are on the postings but still just a black screen with same GRUB's error message.
I even installed Ubuntu 10.10 pre-released and no luck.
Most of the commands that are posted on various documentations do not work:
Here is how my system looks like:
(Booting from Live CD)
$ sudo fdisk -l
/dev/sda1 13 102400 de Dell Utility
/dev/sda2 * 13 1926 15360000 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 1926 30892 232676566 7 HPFS/NTFS
