We have already discussed how to upgrade ubuntu dapper to edgyeft and some people are complaing after upgrade they had problems related to x server and update problems.I have collected some of the common problems and their solutions from ubuntu forums.

I hope this collection will help for some users to fix their upgrade problems.

After upgrading if you see the following error

Booting ‘ubuntu, kernel 2.5.17-10-386′
root(hd0,0)

Filesystem type unkown, partition type 0x7
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-386 root=/dev/evmu/sda3 ro quiet splash

Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

Solution

To fix that, press ‘e' to enter Edit mode at the time of booting your grub bootloader, and then press ‘e' on the first line

(the (hd0,0) one) to edit that. Change the last 0 to a 2, so it reads: (hd0,2). Then, press ‘b' to boot.It's assuming that

Ubuntu is installed on the very first partition, and sets the root to that... (hd0,0) means the first partition of the first

drive, and (hd0,2) means the third partition.

X Server Error for Nvidia and ATI errors

x.org log file, typically found in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, may turn up error messages such as:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(II) ATI: Candidate "Device" section "ATI Technologies, Inc. R480 [Radeon X850$]
(WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:0 could not be detected!
(WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:1 could not be detected!
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Solution

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati

Xserver-xorg not installed after Dapper to Edgy upgrade

After upgrading when you restart the computer your X server not coming back up after reboot

Solution

Run the following command to reinstall xserver

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg

or

sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg

and then restart your machine using the following command

sudo shutdown -r now

Reboot the system, after which only a command prompt appears, and X does not load after typing startx or startkde at the commandline, or rebooting

Solution

From command prompt, run the command

apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

perl locale warnings upgrading to Edgy

the upgrade process is throwing up an awful lot of the errors below:

perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = "en_GB:en",
LC_ALL = (unset),
LANG = "en_GB.UTF-8″
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

Solution

Most of the people found that they was no effect with this error. Perl warnings didn't seem to trigger a reaction.

text and splash doesn't after upgrade to edgy

Solution

Open your GRUB configuration file using the following command

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

and try to change the values recommended here

no text status messages in ubuntu edgy 6.10 splash screen

After upgrading from ubuntu 6.06 to ubuntu 6.10, usplash stopped working, Ubuntu started displaying a blank screen during startup and shutdown.

Solution

Edgy disabled the status messages in Usplash, but you can get them back easily using the following commands. First, open your menu.lst

gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Now you remove any mention of "quiet" from the file. You should get the messages again next time you boot.

upgrade from dapper to edgy broken 3d acceleration

When you run glxgears you get under 300 (It used to average about 1500 before) fps proceeded by the message

sudo update-grub

sudo aptitude reinstall linux-restricted-modules-2.6.17-10-generic

Flash plugin causes firefox crash

Flash caused Firefox to crash on new Edgy install

Solution

Open the /etc/firefox/firefoxrc file

sudo /etc/firefox/firefoxrc

add the following line and save the file

or

Comment out the composite section in x.org

or

Change your color depth to 24 bit, if you haven't already

ATI Driver didn't upgrade Dapper to Edgy

If you are getting following error

(EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match server's version (1)

Solution

First you need to remove the ATI drivers using the following command

sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-driver-ati

Install ATI Drivers using the following command

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati

Upgrade Dapper to Edgy nvidia GLX problem

After the upgrade OpenGL apps stopped working, nvidia-settings says The OpenGL extension ‘GLX' is not supported by the X server or there was a problem retrieving GLX information from the X server.

Solution

sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

go to the end of the file and add this

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection

then save the file and exit

Now you need to reboot using the following command

sudo reboot

  1. I had a problem with ndiswrapper on a dapper to edgy upggrade. I had to apt-get install ndiswrapper-1.8

    cheers

  2. Here’s a problem i’ve yet to see anywhere else:
    On loading the live CD, it loads right up to the point where the gnome splash should appear… then it shows a distorted graphical glitch instead of the splash – then the audio plays but no commands work at all (no CTRL Alt+F1) and it hangs (except for the mouse).

    I then tried the alternate install CD, this worked ok however it refused to install to the MBR on my SATA drive. I decided to use the CD to ‘Boot first harddisc’ — surprise, up it boots… up comes GDM, still functional F keys with tty etc, switching back to the GDM and logging in then presents the same graphical errors and hangs.

    The distortion and errors (followed by lockup) appears on the GDM as soon as you click Session>Choose Session.

    Strange!

    Specs:
    SATA Disc Primary
    SATA Disc secondary
    IDE Master (installed ubuntu to this one and then changed BIOS so it was first boot device)
    IDE slave

    Nvidia 7800GTX, 1GB RAM, AMD 3800XP

    Quite bothersome :D

  3. “No Root Filesystem” error when running the installer on a machine with an existing (k)ubuntu install

    So possible fixes here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1668240

  4. This may not be just Edgy but last night I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out why the TV out on my Nvidia GE-Force 4 (nvidia-glx-legacy driver) was black and white only. I finally found the Saturation slider in nvidia-settings. The default is 0, which is b/w. Move it to the right to get color.

  5. thanks myron for your nice tip

  6. I had the X windows problem(run “sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg” solved) & missing swap partition (recreate the swap partition). Another problem I had the missing ‘minimize, maximize & close’ icon on right top corner which still not solve.

  7. In “text and splash doesn’t after upgrade to edgy” section,

    sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    should be a tiny typo of

    gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    Sincerely,

  8. I have this problem:
    (EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn’t match server’s version (1)

    I try
    sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-driver-ati
    result:
    Package sudo xserver-xorg-driver-ati is not installed, and therefore not removed

    I then try
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
    result:
    xserver-xorg-video-ati is already newest version

    and X still don´t work.
    Man, this thing sucks

  9. Hello,

    my screen is very slow e.g. when I scoll in Firefox or move any window around I see how the window/text is painted. Any hints how to resolv this problem? I’m using the vesa driver.

    Thanks, matt

  10. When perl complains about locales the locales are broken. It might be just a
    incorrectly set up locale environment variable or something more serious. A good way to check locale settings is:

    $ perl -e ‘print “hello, world\n”;’
    hello, world

    If perl complains there’s a problem. If it does not at least your settings are not incorrect. They might be unsuitable for your or for your users needs but they are not incorrect.

    “The most people” above probably mean “the people who only write US English
    or code”. For example I lost the ability write Finnish which is quite a show stopper for a Finn. After an update couple of days ago I was no longer able write Scandinavian characters [äöåÄÖÅ] no matter what my locale settings and konsole Settings->encoding combination was.

    This morning I did:

    apt-get update
    apt-get –reinstall locales

    Perl stopped complaining. Good start but Scandinavian characters where shown as boxes but this is a familiar problem: transcoded fonts had disappeared from my system. After installing packages

    xfonts-100dpi-transcoded
    xfonts-75dpi-transcoded

    and restarting X everyting seems to work.

  11. I’m having the same problem that Nick has. The Live CD loads up to the splash screen, and then the logo is garbled/glitchy, and nothing else works after that.

    I am also using an NVidia 7800GT (not GTX though)… I wonder if it’s a problem with that card?

    I got Dapper to install a few months ago by using the “safe graphics” startup. Choosing that option on Edgy didn’t seem to change anything though. I upgraded my 6.06 installation, but I wanted to try a clean install of 6.10. Any ideas?

  12. Problems:
    1) Two brightness levels on my notebook’s display. But display has got 7 levels. Probably ACPI error.
    2) Swap partition ID has changed during upgrade. No swap after restart.

  13. AMD64
    Dapper -> edgy

    Upgrade didn’t complete it seems.
    Package update suggests running dpkg –configure -a

    I do this and it process hangs. Output below.

    dpkg –configure -a
    Setting up bluez-utils (3.7-1ubuntu4) …
    Creating device nodes …
    udev active, devices will be created in /dev/.static/dev/
    * Starting Bluetooth services… hcid sdpd

  14. Hi…

    After my upgrade to Ubunty edgy I’ve found two problems:

    * My WiFi card works correctly with orinoco_pci driver but it’s detected as a prism 2.5 card.

    * speedstep-acpi is broken. There is no suitable module for controling the frequency of my p4-mobile.

  15. I attempted to upgrade with the recommended gksu “update-manager -c” command and then the normal Synaptic package manager. All was well until right at the end it blew up when it found my static Opera in /usr/X11R6/bin and complained that the directory must be empty. Why can it not just move it to a temp directory in that case? I installed the Opera myself some months ago because you did not support it at the time on 64bit machines and I like its integrated mail client + web browser. Anyway, now I have over 900 packages in suspense and even though I removed the offending file it still complains about it and the package manager refuses to proceed and do anything sensible, even when I try to remove the opera package. Why? A total screw up. I will probably have to remove Ubuntu altogether…

  16. PS. I tried doing stuff via sudo apt-get and eventually I succeeded in re-downloading and re-installing all those packages but now my xserver is terminally dead.
    I followed the above instructions and reinstalled it and the desktop (several times) but the xserver still fails with: failed to initialise core devices (kdb, mouse, wacom). I don’t understand it because when I do:
    sudo shutdown -r now, the graphical shutdown splashscreen comes back for a few moments, so why does it refuse to come up for anything useful?

    Anyway, I don’t have any more time to waste on this experimental software. I guess you will say I should have stayed with Breezy and Dapper, which I was happy with for a year. As it is, I now have nothing and it is back to reformatting my Ubuntu partitions and back to Windows.

  17. i’m using ubuntu and i upgrade to edgy /beta/ and when i type my user and password in login screen i see gnome splash but then i see again login screen asking me for user and password. it seems like xserver restart by itself. i try to log into gnome failsafe but it fail to login too. I can login only with failsafe terminal.

  18. wow what a huge disappointment. installing dapper drake was the first experience I had in a linux environment. I thought it was pretty cool except for the fact that it would not support my wireless 802.11g card in my laptop, which i need desperately. I upgraded to Edgy hoping the issue would have been resolved but still no resolution in 6.06. Then I upgaded to 6.10 and all hell broke loose. I get some strange bool loading screen its all black and the status bar garbles up in green. The wireless still does not work, and it appears to be loading the wrong hard disk and I don’t know how to fix it, I formatted a separate drive and installed Edgy on it, and in the GUI it only displays the alternate drive. Since I know nothing about linux or fixing these things, I’m scrapping it for now. You guys can trash windows all you want, but at least it works and is easy to use. This trash does not. I will either look to another distro of linux (maybe fedora core 6) or just stay away until all of this coding gets fixed. That won’t be until april 07 for Feisty Fawn (7.04). oh well…

  19. I use the Brazilian abnt2 keyboard layout, and Qt (Kde) applications didn’t recognize accents anymore (no dead keys).
    I found out that I was using locale pt_BR.ISO-8859-1. I switched to pt_BR_UTF-8 and now accents works fine.
    sudo apt-get install localeconf
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure localeconf
    > select pt_BR.UTF-8.

  20. I also had the same problem as Micky with Opera in /usr/X11R6/bin , and also with an earlier version of the fglrx ATI driver (possibly from before I upgraded breezy badger to dapper drake). The complaint is the directory must be empty. As Micky also noticed, emptying the directory did *not* do the trick. It seems this is because there was configuration for both opera and fglrx asking for the directory.
    The error message when you run ‘sudo apt-get -f install’ tells you which offending package wants the directory. It also tells you about other libraries (xserver-org? maybe not i cannot remember now).
    I tried removing opera with ‘sudo apt-get remove opera’, but that would not work either, and the error message suggested using ‘sudo apt-get -f install’. Round and round in circles…
    I finally remembered that I probably bypassed apt-get when I originally installed opera, instead downloading a debian package, and installing it using dpkg.
    So the fix was: ‘sudo dpkg -P opera’. – the -P option also purges any config. I ran a similar command for fglrx (the fglrx package also had version numbers, which I cannot remember).
    The install completed properly after that. I was running ‘gksu “sh /media/cdrom0/cdromupgrade”‘ to do the upgrade, answering ‘yes’ to the question about using the networ. After the first failure – which I managed to wind back to dapper, I figured that I would download and burn the edgy cdrom in case it all went completely pear shaped.
    Possubly ‘gksu “update-manager -c ”’ will work. I never tried.
    Anyhow, after restar – i did not get graphics, so I followed the instructions for installing the ati drivers for edgy, as displayed on the ATI site. Method 1 on:
    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Edgy_Installation_Guide

    It all works now as far as I can tell.
    Three things have changed on the desktop 1) the panel items for showing battery power and network – right click the top menu thing on the desktop and choose ‘add to panel’ to put them back – I now also have a weather report – nice and 2) only two desktops in the bottom status bar by default. I am sure I will be able to change this, if it irks me sufficiently. and 3) you can now make windows stay topmost for any desktop – the option is available when right-clicking on the menu bar. Could be useful

  21. Dapper->Edgy, T42 Thinkpad. Used “update-manager -c” method, which worked flawlessly.

    After upgrade/reboot, ran into two problems:

    1) no text/no splash. Tried the vga method using many modes, but none worked at all or worked well for the laptop lcd, so fell back to editing /boot/grub/menu.lst. These settings seem to get overwritten, though, so it doesn’t seem like a permanent fix.

    2) Over a minute pause during bootup. I installed bootsplash via apt-get, which told me the problem was with dhclient. Lowered the timeout in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf, but that didn’t help. Installed NetworkManager & uncommented all non-loopback interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces….still no help.

    Otherwise, everything seems OK.

  22. In #1 above, I meant to say “fell back to removing ‘quiet splash’ from /boot/grub/menu.lst”.

  23. After upgrading from Dapper Drake to Edgy Eft, I get the following error when I try to launch ssh:

    “/etc/ssh/ssh_config line 44: Bad configuration option”

    The line in question reads:

    SendEnv LANG LC_*

    When I comment it out, the next line throws an error:

    HashKnownHosts yes

    After I comment out that line, ssh seems to go off into terminal wait hell and doesn’t come back.

    Anyone seen this one and have a fix?

    Thanks!

    Chuck

  24. The fix to my previous post is to reinstall openssl and openssh (client and server). That seems to have straightened everything out.

  25. matt from november 9th you have to NOT use the vesa driver, i had the same problem but once
    I changed it to ati (i have an ati radeon 7500) the screens sped up greatly and there was
    no more problems. im not that great with this stuff but i recommend going into your xorg.conf file
    and changing that vesa to something that will work…

  26. I’ve tried the livecd for desktop/laptop (ubuntu-6.10-desktop-i386.iso) – I own a laptop with a 1680×1050 widescreen and an ati x1600.
    When I boot from the CD everything seems to run ok until the window-system takes over, then my screen becomes skewed so it is completely unreadable – what to do?

  27. Upgraded from Dapper to Edgy in hopes of fixing wireless WEP woes on my Thinkpad R51. Other than wireless issues the upgrade went very smoothly. Hope to fix the wireless problems using NDISWRAPPER after I’m done lightly tapping my head against large metal objects…

  28. x-seession-manager:error while loading shared libraries:libgnomevfs-2.so.0:cannot open shared object file:No such file or directory
    pls help

  29. try to run the following command and check if it works

    sudo apt-get install libgnomevfs2-0 libgnomevfs2-bin libgnomevfs2-common libgnomevfs2-extra

  30. Tonight I upgraded the system from Dapper to Edgy. I have the same problem as what mutt described. The screen is very slow when I move any windows.

    My graphics driver is ATI X1300. It seems that chris’ suggestion does not work for mine.

    Thanks for help!

  31. Hello!
    I’m using a PowerPC G4 tower, had xUbuntu installed (dapper drake) rand the upgrade overnight.
    Thismorining the screensaver was on and i tried to log back in but my password didn’t work.
    clicked “new login”
    Then an error popped up at the login page “Authentication Failed”
    was able to click restart
    restarted…
    the kernel loaded…
    xubuntu booted…
    then NOTHING just a blinking “_”
    no commands (that i know of) do anything.
    PLEASE HELP!

  32. Clean install of Edgy.
    First thing it wants to do is Software Update.
    Installed 300mb of updates.
    Rebooted
    Will not get past a frozen splash screen.
    What’s going on?
    Now I have to boot by selecting the old kernel version.

    Thanks
    Dom.

  33. linux_newbie, I had this problem and looked around a lot but apparently there is not much you can do if you’re booting from a live CD. it is apparently to do with the ATI cards which have poor linux support. What I did is as follows;

    at the bootup screen select start in safe graphics mode but make sure the graphics is set to 640×480 instead of (i think) VGA. Once it has booted and everything is all scribbly like then press ctrl+alt+F1, you get a command line.

    then install the fglrx driver for ATI, steps below;
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
    sudo aticonfig –initial
    sudo aticonfig -ovt=Xv

    then;

    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    and go to the line regarding your default display and change the resolution from 1680×1050 (or whatever yours is) and set to 640×480. then run;
    startx (you may get an error, if so, do what the error msg says – rm some file it complains about)

    Hope this works for you, if not, you could possibly try skipping the “sudo nano” command above.

  34. I’ll try that, thanks.

    I’m not sure if it’s the problem.

    I booted in recovery mode and this is the last line before it freezes:

    drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks, Dom

  35. If you get:
    (WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:0 could not be detected!
    (WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:1 could not be detected!

    One thing might be that you have to change driver “ati” to driver “radeon” in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

  36. Still no go.
    I still have to select the old kernel version to boot up.
    It stops on:

    drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver

    Anyone had this before?

    Thanks
    Dominic.

  37. My also locks up on…drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver, but it will still boot. I has to time out and it will work. It make take like 5 minutes but mine will boot if I just wait long enough. I have tried disabling USB 2.0 in my BIOS but it does not resolve the problem.

  38. I upgraded after being unsuccessful at a clean installation because I have the following problem:
    The mouse won’t work sometimes. Most of the time.

    I tried dpkg-reconifure xserver-xorg and the mouse worked after a restart, so i left it on overnight. In the morning, I found the computer off, and when turned on, no mouse.

    How can I get this to work.

    It seems that USB simply dies every once in a while (it’s not the mouse…it’s usb. the lsusb command doesn’t show up anything.)

  39. I still have a no-go system. I have to select the old kernel to use the computer! I’m getting the “v2.6 :USB HID core driver” error aswell as “Can’t access tty; job control turned off”. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

  40. The reinstall option in apt-get install requires two dashes
    eg.
    sudo apt-get install –reinstall xserver-xorg-video-ati

  41. When running Synaptic.

    E: Type ‘dev’ is not known on line 58 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.

    and on reload repositories

    E: Type ‘dev’ is not known on line 58 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
    E: Unable to lock the list directory

    Update notifictaion on mouseover reads

    A error occured, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu or apt-get on a terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was: ‘Error: Opening the cache (E:Type ‘dev’ is not known on line 58 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:THe list of soucres could not be read.)”

    THanks,

  42. Additionally I tried to run update manager with the -c command via gksu as i dused to upgrade to edgy and got this …

    warning: could not initiate dbus

    THanks again, your tutorials are excellent and i hope theres a fix for my situation.

  43. …. First time install,ver6.10, partitioning did NOT work on an XP system with plenty of room. Am continuing to understand and fix the problem. Find that I need more updated information.

    Thanks

  44. The perl locale warnings upgrading to Edgy can block the installation. In that case, type :
    unset LC_ALL LANGUAGE LANG

    And reconfigure your locales at the end of the upgrade.

  45. After installing Edgy Eft the Samsung_unified_driver for my CLP-300N Colour Laser Printer no lomger prints, It works in Dapper Drake! Any ideas?

  46. I have the same problem as Mike (#31, http://www.debianadmin.com/ubuntu-edgy-upgrade-common-problems-with-solutions.html#comment-2804). Anyone have any ideas?? So random..

  47. oops, forgot to mention one thing. This just happened last night. I was running Xubuntu 6.10, I just locked my computer as I usually do before I go to bed, then the next morning, the screensaver is on, so I enter my password, but it doesn’t work (it doesn’t even appear to check, it just looks like it automatically says “Sorry!”). I wasn’t doing any upgrades or anything unusual (just watched a couple TV shows, had some stuff downloading in Azureus).. then suddenly the next morning, this.

    I tried to click New Login, but I got some error, and then an “Authentication Failed” message which would pop up again after clicking “OK”. So I did a hard reboot, went into recovery mode, and from what I remember, some scripts started.. something to do with “bottom”. Both “bottom” scripts began, and returned “Done”.. and then, like Mike said, just a blinking cursor.

  49. I upgraded my desktop machine using method 1 and it worked fine, except that I was then left without my wireless connection, which has run on this machine through several versions of ubuntu and debian. When I go into networking I get 2 wired connections, but no wireless ???

  50. I tried to reinstall xserver
    my graphic card is Geforce 8600M
