-While booting your grub bootloader, press "e", enter the edit mode.

-Press "e" on the first line.

-(hd0,0) Change the last 0 to a 2, so it reads: (hd0,2).

-Press ‘b’ to boot.

Good luck.

How can I connect the USB Bluetooth bugs in Ubuntu 8.10?


<p>USB and Bluetooth connectivity errors in Ubuntu 8.10 are the result of two different errors. If you are running KDE, you have a patch on their Bluetooth connectivity problems (see Resources) to download correct. USB connection errors are the result of a bug in the current version of the Linux kernel. Run "apt-get package manager to upgrade the kernel is usually the fastest and most trouble-free. After the upgrade, the system restarts. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open a copy of the console when running a graphical user interface (GUI). <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Type "apt-get update" and press "Enter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Type "apt-get upgrade" and press "Enter". The window that appears available updates. Find anything related to the kernel that "n" followed by pressing "Enter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Type "apt-get install package-name" where "package name" is the updated version of the kernel. Press Enter. Confirm that you have to install the update by typing "Y" and press "Enter". Once the upgrade is complete, restart your computer. <br />

My computer is about seven years old so I can't really upgrade to a newer OS. I am still using Ubuntu 8.04. Anyways. The problem that I have is earlier my computer screen turned black. So I rebooted...


My computer is an old Compaq Evo. It's around the same age. And I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 just fine. I upgraded from 8.04, to 10, now to 11.04
I have to say 11.04 has amazing drivers, everything seems to work 100% of the time with it now. And it supports more PNP (Plug-n-play) devices
Best part about Ubuntu is, you can upgrade, and down grade based on your likes or dislikes.

Hi, when I start my lap top with Ubuntu 10, it even doesnt offer log in and writes this kind of things: mount: mounting/ proc on / root/ proc failed: No such file on directory Target filesystem...


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.

I have an ASUS netbook that runs linux. I don't know linux, but was told to upgrade to ubuntu. I don't know how. Anyone know how?


1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.

2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).

3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).

4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)

5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).

6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.

7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.

8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.

9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).

10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)

11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

Good Luck!

I installed Ubunto 9.0 AND when it came up it said, GRUB LOAD,no such partition, then at a prompt it says,grub rescue.


If you run a dual-boot system with Linux and Windows, this has happened to you. You had to do your monthly reinstall of Windows, and now you don’t see the linux bootloader anymore, so you can’t boot into Ubuntu or whatever flavor of linux you prefer.
Here’s the quick and easy way to re-enable Grub.
1) Boot off the LiveCD
2) Open a Terminal and type in the following commands, noting that the first command will put you into the grub “prompt”, and the next 3 commands will be executed there. Also note that hd0,0 implies the first hard drive and the first partition on that drive, which is where you probably installed grub to during installation. If not, then adjust accordingly.
sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
> exit
Reboot (removing the livecd), and your boot menu should be back.

Only read below if Windows is now missing from the boot menu
If you installed Ubuntu before you installed Windows, then Ubuntu will not have anything in the grub configuration for Windows. This is where you’ll have to do a bit of manual editing to the grub boot menu file.
If you open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst with the following command:
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
You’ll see a sample section for Windows, which you’ll want to uncomment and add to the boot menu list in whatever position you want it in. (uncomment by removing the #’s)
# title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
# root (hd0,0)
# makeactive
# chainloader +1
Note that you should also verify that hd0,0 is the correct location for Windows. If you had installed Windows on the 4th partition on the drive, then you should change it to (hd0,3)

I just installed ubuntu installed mp3 kodec


When you start your pc just after it listed your hardware, before starting the grub graphic of Ubuntu, press the esc key, and change your kernel using the arrow on your keyboard, to the previous kernel, as fare as i remember one the kernel was having a bug, just before i upgraded to Ubuntu intrepid 8.10, if you did not do the full upgrade, then go to http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/ and search for the latest kernel, my best advice is go to http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading and follow the steps base on your Ubuntu os, any problem come back to me richardicare@googlemail.com
