Installation issues / Re: screen centering
« on: October 03, 2007, 03:00:24 pm »
I actually remember it doing a similar thing when I first installed Kubuntu earlier this year (pre-MCE).  But it somehow righted itself after a couple restarts.  The display is correct when it's booting up, but as soon as the cursor appears, it is apparent that the display is off to the right - to far to be fixed with monitor adjustments.

I installed with the CDs, and afterward, Kubuntu has been off to the right, with a black bar on the far left.  I suspect this has something to do with switching the nvidia driver during installation.  Has anyone else experienced this problem or knows how to rectify it?  Also, in the broader scope, why does MCE have to make adjustments only for nvidia cards?

Originally, after plugging in the device, I was simply able to right click on the internet icon in the lower right and see my wireless network.  After installing MCE, that original 'internet icon' (I don't know the correct term, I don't have it in front of me) isn't there, and does not appear when I enable the wireless device in administrator mode.  Any suggestions?

I had been using an Airlink 101 wireless adapter previous to installing MCE (it worked great, plug-and-play right out of the box), but now Kubuntu doesn't seem to recognize it.  Did I alter something I shouldn't have during MCE installation?  What is the best way to rectify this, as it's my only internet access where my PC is located.

I'm attempting to install from the CDs - when I click to 'install package' on the deb file, a prompt arrives that asks for a password.  I can't seem to find anything about this online.  Am I missing something very obvious?

Yes, I had previously been running both Windows and Kubuntu, both of which worked fine.  Perhaps I'll give that a try, I guess.

What would that do differently?

Hi, I reposted to this for a little background.  I've tried booting with both the SATA (port 0) and the disc drive in the boot poll position.  They both gave the 'insert boot disk' error after installation.  Here are some things I noticed, so that perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I could give it a look:

1) If I set the hard drive as the first boot disk previous to installation, after installation the DVD drive is listed as first
2) there is an error just before installation completes.  It says the following:
unmounting temporary filesystems
unmount:/ cow: not found                           [fail]
unmount: function not implemented
    * casper is resyncing snapshots and caching reboot files....
3) in the BIOS, it is set to search for hard disks for 0 seconds (that was what it was set at).  Should that be different?

Any help would be appreciated, as I'd really like to give LMCE a try.

I fall into the mystery category.  Hard disk is SATA 1; it's the first boot device (although, when I looked at it after an re-install attempt, it was back to second after I had changed it), and there's only one hard disk so it's in the fist and only boot order position.  I'm going to mess around with it a little more later.  Thanks for your help.

The only two fields in the BIOS that seem to be in any way (but probably not) related are the 'Max CPUID Value Limit' for running legacy OSes in the boot configuration menu and the 'Intel Quick Resume Technology' is enabled in the power settings menu.

I disabled 'boot to network' in the BIOS and now the error message is gone - just the line "no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
Any suggestions?

If you can think of anything, that would be helpful.  The error implies that it's not finding anything to boot from - but at this point I've attempted it from both the hard drive and the disc drive.  Not that it would take much, but I'm stumped.

In the boot order, DVD drive was first.  I changed it to hard drive, and the installation boot picked right up where it left off, with the same PXE-2.1 "need boot disk" message.  Should the re-order have fixed it (if that was the problem), or does the installation need to be re-started?  And if that's the case, do I just boot up with the quick install DVD in the drive?

Well, it's SATA.  I've never checked the bios since switching to Kubuntu (just in Windows).  When I'm looking at it I can figure it out, but how do I get there to see it?  As I mentioned, I'm very new to Linux.

In the middle of installation - not long after it asks that the DVD be removed.  Is it not recognizing a drive or something?
