Fedora :: Using Yum To Install Older Version Of Software (MythTV)?
Apr 25, 2011
I've got a MythTV 0.23 backend and I'm trying to get the frontend working on my Fedora box, but by default yum installs 0.24 which has a different database model and so won't work with a 0.23 backend. I've got the RPM for 0.23 but it has a bunch of dependencies so I need to track down the RPMS for those, too, so I was wondering if I can do this in yum? I've seen an old thread about installing a yum-allowdowngrade package but that doesn't seem to be available any more.
I have a Sun Fire X4450 running RHEL 5.3. Attached to this server via FC is a Sun StorageTek ST2540 that allows additional storage capacity. In order to administer the ST2540, a software application from Sun (CAM 6.6) has been installed. Part of the install process for this application also installs Java JDK1.6.0_12 (64-bit).
However as we use this hardware as a database server, our database software will not install properly as it requires an earlier version of Java JDK1.5.0_11 to be installed. When I try and install the older JDK rpm package, RHEL will not let me. How can I get both versions of Java installed?
Specifically, I want Clementine player 0.6, but the guy that installed Ubuntu on my laptop put natty narwhal alpha 1 on it (don't ask me why. I wanted maverick since its stable but he never really asked. The whole thing was kinda a surprise), and Clementine only offers downloads for Ubuntu distros up to maverick. So. Can I/is there a way I can install it anyway? Or am I forced to just use Banshee until the official Update comes out and Clementine is updated in....
I have problem installing a program (GTNets) since it requires an older version of g++ (3.3), while the current version of g++ is 4.4 in my ubuntu installation (vers 9.10). Can anyone give me recommendations on how to solve this?
I guess that there should be able to install an older version of g++ in addition to the current g++. Furthermore, the current should be the default, while the older is an optional version.

i uninstalled the latest version of adobe flash cause i dont like the latest and wanted to install and older version such as 10.1 from 11 June, 2010 but i dont know where to download a version of this for Ubuntu or how to install. So if any one can provide me a link to download this version and how to install it
Ive got the Remi repo all setup along with yum priorities. I know how I would go about installing PHP 5.3 but for Drupal 6.x version 5.2.x is more compatible. I see php 5.2.13 in the remi repo archives. How should I go about installing it? just wget the rpm and install?
I use a ZTE 626 USB modem to connect to the internet (and yes, i am in the wilds of nowhere!) which using USB-modeswitch 1.1.0-2 and ubuntu 10.04 works well.
I just upgraded one machine to 10.10 and it included the new modeswitch 1.1.4 which does not work, the modem is never discovered. I searched around and found that this is a bug in the latest modeswitch and apparently if you back down to version 1.1.3 it works.
So, i have two questions,
first, where can i find version 1.1.3 of modeswitch. I have searched and cannot find older version than 1.1.4 as a .DEB file.
second, i do have a really old version of modeswitch (1.1.0-2) on my hard-drive and have been trying to load my older 1.1.0-2 version and am having real problems with it. I remove the 1.1.4 version and its data using the ubuntu software centre and it looks like it properly is removed. I then click on the .DEB file that contains 1.1.0-2 and it opens the software centre and installs it (the data seems to be automatically loaded as i never have to install that). I then search for modeswitch and the version that has been installed is the newer 1.1.4 one, not the older one i clicked on. I am confused as this computer is not attached to the internet but it seems to find the newer version from somewhere, uses it and therefore does not work. I presume the version 1.1.4 is cached somewhere and i am not able to clear it out.
Incidentally, the source of the information that i have so far is here:
From reading this, i do understand that there is a problem, After reading this bug fix I tried editing the config file for the modeswitch modems and changing all of them to the format indicated, but no joy.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. Wanted to install an older version of AdobeReader and found it as a tar.gz file.Unzipped it and instructions said to run the "Install" script which I did with the follow commands:
# chmod 700 ./Install # ./Install
It setup a /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat 7.0 file but I don't see anything in the /bin/ directory. What did I do wrong here?
I am installing the quake4SDK on RHEL , it needs gcc-3.3 , but I have gcc 4.1.How can I install an alternative gcc3.3, without getting rid of the newest one , and solely to get this program to compile ??? I know there is an "alternative" managing system , but don't know how it works.
Is there a way to use the diff command between an older and a newer version of a file and only display the lines that have been added to the newer file and not the ones that have been removed without any of the explanation formatting, just the new lines. I'm trying to bypass the process of putting both files into a database and running an SQL "left join where old data is null" as I will need to do this on a regular basis.
Although I am new to Fedora/Linux I hope to contribute to the community once I'm on my feet with the OS.I am trying to update the graphics driver (Intel), so I downloaded the file, realized I needed to update libdrm, downloaded that, too, and am now on the step of installing libdrm 2.4.23.I am at the step of typing 'make install' on the command line, and get this error message:libtool: Version mismatch eror. This is libtool 2.2.6b Debian Debian-2.2.6b-2, but the definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.10. You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2 and run autoconf again.It appears that I have a newer version of libtools than is needed. How do I recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from an older libtool version, specifically 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2? Or is the problem with LT_INIT?
I would like to know if anyone has run more than one version of mono concurrently. I want to host a Battlefield 2 server with bf2ccd that requires mono 1.1.12. CentOS 5.3 repos provide mono 1.2.4 which is neither new enough nor old enough to support bf2ccd. I have considered compiling a newer version or an older version to accommodate this but I think that the only fully supported version is the 1.1.12 and I want to have the newer mono for other projects. I have used Slackware exclusively up to now and am not familiar with CentOS yet so I would like to avoid compiling if I can. The server is an unmanaged dedicated server so I'm not certain of all of the details. AFAIK it is a standard CentOS 5.3 install.
after few years being limited with my pc configuration (windows OS) I realized that linux or it's distributions is the best invention in 21 century. And finally I am starting use it. openSUSE 11.4 installaition succesful, I updated it and it looks I don;t have any problems, but I got few questions.
1. How install older version of mozilla firefox internet browser here? I can't install some plugins because it's a firefox beta 12 version, for example. I am quake fan, o I like play quake live, but i can't install quake plugin, because my firefox is beta version.
2. Does I got all drivers instantly installed to my mashine? ATI video drivers, sound drivers ect??
3. Are there any How-To guides which can teach me, how I can improve my desktop? gadgets, 3D desktop ect...?
When I boot up ubuntu 10.10, at first it looks fine, but after just a few minutes the color scheme will change to look like older versions of ubuntu (like 9.04). By this I mean that the top and bottom bar turn light grey instead of dark grey, and that icons and scroll bars in open windows look old.
Here is a screen shot of what it looks like. Keep in mind that this is in fact 10.10[URL]... Another interesting thing is that when I go to system->preferences->appearance->visual effects, none of the three options are checked (though compiz and emerald are still working fine). The weird thing, though, is that just opening the appearance window seems to temporarily solve the problem.
Is an older version of Ubuntu or other Linux OS available that would work well in my older computer?
I have a computer that is about 11 years old that I would like to put to use. It is not the only computer at my home. I would just like to use it since I still have it. It will run Windows ME that came installed in it very well. Problem with that is that I am not able to locate virus and firewell software that will run on old versions such as ME.
An upgrade to XP is just to slow to live with. I loaded the latest Ubuntu 11.04 that works just fine other than it is even slower than is XP.
The computer is a tower type of desktop that has an 800 mhz Celeron processor with the maximum memory possible that is 512 kb if I recall correctly. I am connected to a 512 kbit DSL.
I think that what I would like to do is to install a Linux OS along side the Win ME and only go on line with the Linux program. Then I can still run a couple of programs that I cannot run with the Linux OS. I would kind of like to stay with Ubuntu since I have used it for a couple of years in a different computer and am use to it.
My favorite IM application, Pidgin,have been causing me some problems with it's new release (2.9.0).More specifically I can't see friends which are visible in normal versions of MSN or hotmail web interface, even though I have searched any options available thoroughly. Also some of my contacts can see me online but cannot message me.
Therefore, I would like to install an older version to find out whether these problems are version or application related. However the only available version is 2.9.0 and I would like to downgrade to an older version,let's say 2.6.0 but I have no idea on how to do that.
No matter which glibc I use, I get the error that I need a compiler that supports visibility. I'm using 4.4.5, so it can't be too old.What is the visibility for gnu, this is a compile for glibc.Any glibc fails for the same reason. I can't compile an older version of gcc, more errors. Is it possible to turn off the check for visibility?
my ubuntu version has changed from v.2.6.27-7 to 2.6.35.-- while i was trying to install my lxu800 modem.my modem was not intalled. this upgradation took place when i installed linux-image-2.6.27-7.deb files. now i want to get my older version of ubuntu. how can i do it.
I installed Ubuntu version 8.04 (Hardy) on my P4 3.4 GHz PC but it was so unstable with daily kernel crashes that I was forced to go back to XP. This year, I�m building a HTPC using an old but unused Abit AN-M2HD, a brand new Athlon 5600+ Brisbane CPU, new 2TB Seagate HD, new G.Skill 8 GB DDR2 PC8500 1066 RAM and a wireless keyboard.
The HTPC will be a server hub with my laptop and P4 still using XP. It will be used for surfing the web, playing games and maybe to record Blueray movies (is that even possible?). I will search the forums for how to make my HTPC the server hub but I�m posting here because I want to try Ubuntu again. I am torn between an older version 7.00 or 6.00 which matches the vintage of my hardware or a new version that can potentially be unstable again.
The upgrade instructions say you can use the upgrade manager to go from 10.4 to 10.10. I am currently running 9.10. Will this still work? Or do I have to go to 10.4 first? Or can I download the 10.10 alternate install iso and upgrade directly with that for both my Ubuntu and UbuntuStudio installations?
Previously I had setup 2 Snapstream remotes using ubuntu 7.10, see the following url: [URL] The issue I'm having is a file no longer exists (/etc/modprobe.d/aliases). This file allowed for the id setup for each remote. I searched for the file but could not find it. Can someone lead me to it or another file that will serve the same purpose?
