Yesterday I performed a clean install from Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Minimal on my Asrock Ion 330.
I followed this guide like I did last time (for an earlier version of Ubuntu Minimal) but I encountered some problems.
Here’s how I solved them.
In chapter “Updating the computer”, change in the sources.list hardy or intreprid or jaunty by “lucid”.
No problems in “Install sound”.
The real problems came in “Installing the graphical environment”.
When I wanted to install the latest driver for my ION graphics card I always got this error:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.ko’. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
‘kernel-source’ rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
‘–kernel-source-path’ commandline option.
It took me a while before I found this solution:
Make the file (or edit the file if it already exists) /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common
and add this content:
Now you should be able to run the installer without problems.
Another small problem was, logging in automatically. In earlier releases of Ubuntu you had to change some commands in /etc/event.d/tty1 (according to the guide mentioned earlier), but in Ubuntu Lucid, the event.d folder doesn’t exist anymore, and you have to put it in /etc/init/ instead.
