recovery cd of ubuntu


Hi LinuxUsers,

I have installed Ubuntu and all drivers in Laptop. But when I tried to install the drivers of Ubuntu in Desktop, then it is not working properly. Can anyone suggest me how to make recovery or duplicate cd/dvd of Ubuntu installed in laptop so that, I can install same (duplicate image) in desktop?

Or is there any other way to do same???

regards
Thanks,
Summit

What goes wrong with the installation? Usually it is the graphics drivers that cause the issue.

There is no recovery CD option: you have to download the same version of Ubuntu as you have installed and then install your other applications on top.

First of all is there a problem with system? Are you able to boot up.
You can create system images to use for recovery, I myself use clonezilla, but it only restores the last image that was created.
You really need to give a little more detail' so as to get more help.

I think I understand and it probably would not help to put the same ubuntu image on your desktop. I am sure the drivers are different. As suggested above the best thing is to figure out is what went wrong trying to install on your desktop.

What was the first problem you ran into with the installation?

Thanks for reply

As I told you before, I have same almost same configuration as that of laptop. But there is problen in installing the drivers (OPENGL) and others. So, I want to use the installed and properly working Ubuntu for my desktop.

I think, I have to install that drivers instead of using recovering disk.

Any suggestions???

regards,
thanks

Sorry but anything that I will come up with will take as long as installing it and installing the drivers. Believe me there is probably a difference between your laptop and your desktop and the number 1 would be video driver and monitor resolution and freq.

Most installations of distros that will not install from a live cd has to do with the video and most have an option at the start to change the resolution or use vesa mode.

What drivers are you trying to install?
lshw if installed gives a list of hardware.
lsmod shows the installed modules or drivers
lspci gives a list of pci cards graphic cards etc.

You haven't really given enough information for anyone to help you.

Hello

Thanks

I want to install libX11-devel in ubuntu. I was installing ROOT (http://root.cern.ch/drupal/content/downloading-root). While ./configure


./configure linux
Configuring for linux
Checking for GNU Make version >= 3.79.1 ... ok
Checking for C compiler ... gcc
Checking for C++ compiler ... g++
Checking for linker (LD) ... g++
Checking for F77 compiler ... gfortran
Checking for libX11 ... no
configure: libX11 (package libX11-devel) MUST be installed

I have tried to install libX11-dev by using
"apt-get install libX11-dev"

but still it is giving the same error as above.
when I tried to install libX11-dev then
apt-get install libx11-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
libx11-dev is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.


Any suggestions?

thanks,

Summit
