Ubuntu 8.10 Intellistation

I was using Ubuntu 8.04 on Intellistation Z Pro.
This ubuntu was upgraded from Ubuntu 7.04 -> 7.10 -> 8.04.

Last week, I upgraded it to 8.10.
Then I could install it. But it was not working.
I got error before kernel loading.

The error messages are following.
Starting up.....
Loading, please wait....
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
-Boot args (cat /prcc/cmdline)
-Check rootdelay= (did the system wit long enough?)
- Check root=(did the system wait for he right device?)
- Missing module (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/ed...(

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1ubuntu6) built-in shell (ash)
Enter `help` for a list of bult-in commands.

I sourch some other same problems.
Then, I could find it on Ubuntu forum.
The problem is kernel version.
On defaults, Ubuntu 8.10 supports Kernel 2.6.27.
However, he/she also said that Kernel 2.6.27 is not work on Intellistation Z Pro.
So, he said we have to change grub setting to boot for Kernel 2.6.24.

Well, I already install other Ubuntu then I don't have 2.6.24 kernel.
It was already removed.....
How do I do.....

Actually, I cannot use Ubuntu 8.04.
Because it cannot install to it, too.
(The problem is different,,,,maybe....)

I check it, now.

You should first try to build a bootable CD, for instance with a Knoppix distribution. You can then repair the operating system on the hard-drive.

Finally, I installed Ubuntu 8.04.
But, install disk for Ubuntu 8.04 was not work for installing it.
So, I installed Ubuntu 7.04.
Then, I upgrade it to 7.04 -> 7.10, 8.04.
I didn't upgrade to 8.10.

Because, one of other person in Ubuntu Forum is report also same problem with same machine.

Bicycle insurance in japan

Long time, I was considering about bicycle insurance.

Many japanese are not consider about insurance for bicycle in japan. Because japan is weak country for insurance.

Many people considered about when they are attacked by car. They didn't have an idea what they may be going to be individual at fault. However, road bikes are faster than my MTB. And, many of city bikes do not turn on a head light after sunset. The old person has also no idea what the bicycles can ride so fast as 50cc motar bike. Then they easy enter in front of bicycles. Such kind of accident is not few in japan. And, the worst case of such accident, the road bike rider needed to pay 40 millions yen to attacked person.

Bicycle ride's bad manner have begun to social issues. Some bicycle riders do not follow the traffic lights or traffic signs. In such background, sometime, I have risks what I will be attacked by such bicycle riders when I ride my MTB. However, as above reason, many riders have no insurance for r…

SSID in japanese?

Usually, we don't use japanese for setting to computer. Because, japaese needs at least two byte. Usually, many computer systems are designed for one byte. So, to use japanese in the system setting was not common way. If he is usual engineer then he will not set japanese for the setting to SSID. I was not do such a thing. Today, i read a tweet written by my friend. He wrote that he could see the japanese ssid from his house. I was really  suprized when i read it. So, I asked prof. Google about this ssid expression in japanese. So, it is  exist.Now, I had no wireless devces for trying it. But,it is so intersting thing for me.

TokyoWalking : Tram @Arakawa-Line

End of last year, I went to cycling to Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the main city on Yamanote-line (loop line) It is north area of Tokyo (loop-line).

Basically, most rail lines on mid-tokyo are as subway or elevated railway. So, it made my so surprising, when I saw it. 
This is tram in tokyo. I did not know that tokyo also has a tram.

Following photo is another tram station.

I saw several tram on the railway. Most of them are painted with different line (maybe...) This tram is named Toden-Arakawa-Line. This line is for Waseda University. I could not take the tram, becase I rode my bicycle. However, I will take the tram on some day.

Following river is River, Kanda. The river is used on some old japanese song.
