Default Issues after installing Ubuntu Studio Natty 64-bit

Hi

I installed Natty. The installer detected the correct keyboard layout,
but set it to a wrong layout. I guess I can solve this myself
especially because X settings, as usual for Ubuntu installs, are
ridiculous and I need to set up a xorg.conf. The GRUB menu entries also,
as usual, are a PITA.

Help is needed for the following serious issue. Until now I couldn't get
PPPoE working. I set up pppoeconf as usual, but nothing happened.

Any ideas?

It's a brand new vanilla install from the Ubuntu Studio media.

Best,

Ralf

Right. I'm not sure how the detection routines are at the moment, but I've also
learnt from the past the one layout I want to use, and then always select that
manually. Always works for me.

This is interesting; can you specify the nature of these problems, and maybe
give some hardware information?

> The GRUB menu entries also, as usual, are a PITA.

Again, quite intriguing. How are they a pain?

I saw from a follow-up that you got this working, so at least that's a relief.

And where do you select it, assumed you're not using a DE, but e.g.
Ion2?

Yes, no display, but a CRT, that's enough to get grotesque settings,
such as limitations for screen resolutions that can be chosen and nice
stroboscope like frequencies only.

And in addition, I wish to be able to select a graphics driver,
regarding to the kernel I'll use. It's needed because I don't know how
to add the proprietary graphics module to the kernel-rt and even if this
should work, sometimes I don't wish to run real-time kernels with the
proprietary driver, regarding to audio performance. But for some usage
3D is needed.

I switch at startup, regarding to the booted kernel, between the nv and
nvidia driver, I'm doing this by the attached Rc script.
And as mentioned before, I also need to set up frequencies and
resolution to chose for my monitor correctly.

After setting up a classic xorg.conf, the mouse wheel doesn't work any
more. I deleted the mouse and keyboard entries in xorg.conf and only
kept graphic card and monitor settings, now the mouse wheel does work
again.

The main issue is to get the correct monitor settings for the first
time.

I'm using GNOME only at the moment, hence I don't know how settings for
X, mouse and keyboard are currently handled by Ubuntu. I e.g. set the
keyboard layout by GDM and usually it's not good to add "Virtual 3840
1200" to your xorg.conf, because this would become default for GDM then,
the virtual screen issue isn't tested with Natty until now. If you use
frame based environments, such as Ion, there are no DE apps to set
screens and keyboards, this was done by xorg.conf and I had issues last
time I tried to use several kind of UIs.

# cd /boot/grub
# cp -pr grub.cfg grub.cfg.natty
# update-grub2
# cp -pr grub.cfg grub.cfg.bad
# cp -pr grub.cfg.natty grub.cfg

See attachments, "video", screen resolution, wanted entries differ
between what I need (manually edited, grub.cfg) and what is
auto-generated (grub.cfg.bad). This can be much more worse. I tided up
my HDDs, before I did this, there were a billion distros listed, that
were not installed anymore.

Default Issues after installing Ubuntu Studio Natty 64-bit

And where do you select it, assumed you're not using a DE, but e.g.

Ion2?

Yes, no display, but a CRT, that's enough to get grotesque settings,

such as limitations for screen resolutions that can be chosen and nice

stroboscope like frequencies only.



And in addition, I wish to be able to select a graphics driver,

regarding to the kernel I'll use. It's needed because I don't know how

to add the proprietary graphics module to the kernel-rt and even if this

should work, sometimes I don't wish to run real-time kernels with the

proprietary driver, regarding to audio performance. But for some usage

3D is needed.



I switch at startup, regarding to the booted kernel, between the nv and

nvidia driver, I'm doing this by the attached Rc script.

And as mentioned before, I also need to set up frequencies and

resolution to chose for my monitor correctly.



After setting up a classic xorg.conf, the mouse wheel doesn't work any

more. I deleted the mouse and keyboard entries in xorg.conf and only

kept graphic card and monitor settings, now the mouse wheel does work

again.



The main issue is to get the correct monitor settings for the first

time.



I'm using GNOME only at the moment, hence I don't know how settings for

X, mouse and keyboard are currently handled by Ubuntu. I e.g. set the

keyboard layout by GDM and usually it's not good to add "Virtual � �3840

1200" to your xorg.conf, because this would become default for GDM then,

the virtual screen issue isn't tested with Natty until now. If you use

frame based environments, such as Ion, there are no DE apps to set

screens and keyboards, this was done by xorg.conf and I had issues last

time I tried to use several kind of UIs.

# cd /boot/grub

# cp -pr grub.cfg grub.cfg.natty

# update-grub2

# cp -pr grub.cfg grub.cfg.bad

# cp -pr grub.cfg.natty grub.cfg



See attachments, "video", screen resolution, wanted entries differ

between what I need (manually edited, grub.cfg) and what is

auto-generated (grub.cfg.bad). This can be much more worse. I tided up

my HDDs, before I did this, there were a billion distros listed, that

were not installed anymore.

Default Issues after installing Ubuntu Studio Natty 64-bit

Title: RE: Issues after installing Ubuntu Studio Natty 64-bit







For openSUSE 11.2, Kernel 2.6.31.6-rt19 I only need to wait 10 seconds after GDM appeared, than I need to push Ctrl + Double-Backspace and after that there are no issues any more.

for ubuntustudio, i installed the realtime kernel mentioned in that link i gave that is patched for use with the nividia proprietary drivers. i hit the power button, and wait a bit as the computer boots normally.*

Manually editing grub.cfg is bad. Please RTFM.

Without editing it, the menu here would be unusable. The files that
should be edited can't be used to set up a good grub.cfg.

I think under GRUB2 users are encouraged to create additional menu entry files rather than edit the grub.cfg file manually.

After running update-grub2 the grub.cfg file is updated to include the additional menu entries.


I could be mistaken however.
