I am currently using the textbook "Openstack Cloud Computing Cookbook 2012" for a cloud computing class. Me and most of the class have not been able to get past the first chapter, as there is an error when trying to run a first instance at the beginning of chapter 1. This error is shown as the status when observing the instance through the "nova list" command. Our professor does not know how to solve this problem, and we are required to finish this chapter as a final project. Most of us in the class does not know much about Ubuntu or Linux in general. Is there any beginners guide to installing openstack on Ubuntu?
