There’s a very good chance that your Ubuntu installation will go smoothly, and you’ll find yourself with a first-rate operating system up and running within just a few minutes. However, issues do sometimes arise, so we’ve drawn together a list of common problems alongside their solutions, which should get you out of any tight spot. These problems are organized by when they occur: (A) before you start Ubuntu’s live distro mode; (B) while running the installation program; and (C) after the installation, when you boot for the first time. The final section of the chapter describes how to configure the graphical subsystem with the X.org configuration utility, which can be useful if graphical glitches arise. The latest version of Ubuntu has an all-encompassing recovery mode, which should assist in solving many problems.
