How do i get to recovery mode for ubuntu?


  1. Switch on your computer.
  2. Wait until the BIOS has finished loading, or has almost finished. (During this time you will probably see a logo of your computer manufacturer.)
  3. Quickly press and hold the Shift key, which will bring up the GNU GRUB menu. (If you see the Ubuntu logo, you've missed the point where you can enter the GRUB menu.)
  4. Select the line which starts with "Advanced options".
  5. Select the line ending with "(recovery mode)", probably the second line, something like: Ubuntu GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.8.0-26-generic (recovery mode)
  6. Press Return and your machine will begin the boot process.
  7. After a few moments, your workstation should display a menu with a number of options. One of the options (you may need to scroll down to the bottom of the list) will be "Drop to root shell prompt". Press Return with this option highlighted.
  8. The root partition is mounted read-only. To mount it read/write, enter the command
    mount -o remount,rw /
  9. If you have /home, /boot, /tmp, or any other mount point on a separate partition, you can mount them with the command
    mount --all (This must be done following step 8 so that /etc/mtab is writable.) Alternatively, you could try selecting "Enable networking" in step 7, though this has been found to cause the system to hang (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/friendly-recovery/+bug/981792).
NOTE 1: If you have Ubuntu Quantal (12.10) or earlier, omit step 4 (the recovery mode menu items are displayed on the top-level menu).
NOTE 2: If you reboot, there is no need to hold the Shift key in step 3. The GNU GRUB menu will continue to be displayed automatically on each boot until a normal startup of Ubuntu completes. To configure GRUB so the menu is always displayed, even after a normal startup, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Setup.

After installing Ubuntu I logged out. Now is asks for a user name and passwork but I did't set any. I asked for it to automaticaly log on. How dos I fix it?


In Ubuntu 9.04 click on the main icon and select Restart.

- If Ubuntu is the only operating system on your computer you'll need to tap the ESC key as the system boots.

- If you have a
dual boot or multiple-boot system the menu should appear on its own.

- At the root level you'll get a boot menu. Select the one that says "recovery mode" and press Enter.

- Ubuntu continues to load until you reach the Recovery Menu.

- Arrow down to "

netroot

" which states Drop to root shell prompt with networking and press Enter.

- Now, at the root type "

password username

" (where username is the account whose password you want to change) and press Enter.

- You'll be prompted to

enter a new password

.

- You will not see the password or any evidence that you are typing.

- Retype the password. If both passwords match you'll have successfully reset your password.

- Press Enter to continue booting into Ubuntu.

hope it helps

This indicates the the root file system has been damaged in some fashion, removing the init program and destroying the /proc directory, and possibly others as well. The only real solution is to try to reinstall. If the problem reoccurs frequently, you may have a damaged hard drive.

Unlock CURRENT password on acer 250 netbook on ubuntu


Try these steps it worked for me it can work for you:

1. You’ll need to boot from your Ubuntu Live CD, choosing “Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer” from the boot menu.
2. Once the system boots, open up a new Terminal window from Applications \ Accessories and then type in the following command:

sudo fdisk -l (minus small leter L)

3. Now you’ll need to create a directory to mount the hard drive on. Since we’re actually booting off the live cd, the directory doesn’t really get created anywhere. then type

sudo mkdir /media/sda1

4.The next command will mount the hard drive in the /media/sda1 folder.

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/sda1

5. The command that actually does the trick is: chroot.
it is used to open up a shell with a different root directory than the current shell is using, and we’ll pass in the folder where we mounted the hard drive.

sudo chroot /media/sda1

6. Now you can be able to use the passwd command to change your user account’s password, and it will be applied to the hard drive since we are using chroot.

7. passwd 12345

Note: you’ll need to type your username after the passwd command in order to change the right password.

8. Now you should be able to reboot your system and log yourself in with your new password.

Did Bausch and Lomb ever make a adjustable cope mount for the Savage model 99 "DL". The "DL" designation is important as Savage implemented a top mounted tang safety and standard 99 mounts will interfere...


http://www.hegibbs.com/mountlist.htm ,,, I just looked here and they don't show it listed for the 99 dl, but they do offer you to write them. Good luck.

How to share drives between linux and xp installed on a same computer


More info will be needed, but linux can access NTFS with read and write, nowadays.

Which linux flavor are you using?

If you are in linux you should be able to access the XP part of the harddrive. In ubuntu you would goto places, then home folder, on the left there are quick links, one should be File System. Many folders are listed once File System in choosen and you should look for the Host folder. That would be the root of the HD for the NTFS "XP" drive - You will see program files and the windows folder, etc...

This maybe different if you are not using Ubuntu, but I can help with manually mounting the drive if need be. Linux is great! =]]

Ubuntu Change Root Password


Nelson,

This is the way i do it, maye there's an other way.

Ubuntu has no set password for the root user. The defult root password is your own user password, the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu.

These are the steps to change the password -

1.Applicatons > Accessories > Terminal.
2.In the new window that opens write "sudo passwd".
3.the system will ask for the new root password.
