When I try starting up Ubuntu 10.04 I get stuck at this screen which is essentially a log in screen but with out the styling of my custom theme. I guess it is running in low graphics mode? Anyways when this log in screen appears I see a message pop up for like 15 seconds in the top right hand corner that reads
The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator.
I will now mention what occurred before my Ubuntu 10.04 would not boot up properly. What I remember doing was installing MongoDB via these instructions. I added the GPG key by running
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 7F0CEB10
And then I added the following line to my
deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/ubuntu-upstart dist 10gen
After this I completed the installation by running the following commands in terminal
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mongodb-10gen
While I was going through this process Package Updater popped up saying that it had a bunch of stuff to update. I remember Google Chrome was in the list. I believe I clicked the Install Updates button and off it went. I do not remember if it ever finished updating. I do remember MongoDB installed and after it was done things got weird.
The first thing that was out of place was that a message window popped up saying
The volume “filesystem root” has only 1mb bytes disk space remaining
You can free up disk space by removing unused programs or files, or by moving files to > another disk or partition
I clicked examine and Disk Utility popped up with a kind of pie chart of my disk use. I believe it read that 100% of my disk space was being used. I was like 'What the hell? I did not just dump huge multi gigabyte files on my HD' or did I? I ask this because later on in the #MongoDB IRC chat one of the people there told me that MongoDB's server needs 10gb of space to run and that it starts running right after it gets installed.
Also I noticed that I could not get Google Chrome to open from clicking the icon or via terminal with the command
When I tried to start Chrome in terminal I got and error almost identical to this one
$ google-chrome $ [4311:4311:95679337296:ERROR:process_singleton_linux.cc(250)] Failed to unlink /home/byers/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock: Read-only file system [4311:4311:95679337571:ERROR:process_singleton_linux.cc(265)] Failed to create /home/byers/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock: File exists [4311:4311:95679337706:ERROR:process_singleton_linux.cc(250)] Failed to unlink /home/byers/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock: Read-only file system [4311:4311:95679337746:ERROR:browser_main.cc(1650)] Failed to create a ProcessSingleton for your profile directory. This means that running multiple instances would start multiple browser processes rather than opening a new window in the existing process. Aborting now to avoid profile corruption.
I assume Chrome needs more space to run.
Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?
I opened up Terminal and ran
df -h and it spit out a table like this
So it looks like my /dev/sda5 partition is in full use.
