Ubuntu 12.10 problems.


Hi people.

Does any of you have any problems booting ubuntu 12.10 after fresh installation ? I mean when launching and after shutting down normaly.

In my cse, it messes up w/ my filesystem and it won't boot unless i fsck /dev/sda1 and fix the errors.It's probably because it does't umount while shutting down?I press the shutdown icon to shut down.

Any ideas?

It happens every time i boot nowadays, the fs is messed up.I also noticed that when shutting down, lock and something else says not mounted and / is busy.Could be this the problem?

I believe it's not umount when it shuts down.

δεν το δοκιμάσα ακόμα επειδή πρεπει να ελεξεις το iso που κατέβασες .. πρέπει το "κάψεις" σε χαμηλή ταχύτητα .. καλύτερα να ρωτήσεις στο ubuntu-gr dot gr
τα παιδιά θα σε βοήθησουν

I also can't see what the ISO should have to do with an installed system and why you try to drive members here to a greek forum when their English is perfectly fine.


On-Topic: This is a well known bug in Ubuntu 12.10: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1073433
This is something that happens only on Ubuntu (maybe some derivatives), just because Ubuntu seems to be the only distro that is not able to shutdown properly. This is a purely cosmetic issue, so you shouldn't worry about it.
Better explanation here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...33/comments/12

Tobi well said.I am a member of linuxquestions.org since 2006.I wouldn't trust anything else.I am here because i want to.I wouldn't go to something else.You did well to say what you said.I don't like to be driven away from the places i like.Besides this is against the rules.My bad i didn't mention it when he said it.

That's what i thought too, what the ISO got to do w/ the problems i am encoutering?
