May 5, 2011

So I've been trying to install 11.04 on my laptop for a couple days. I tried the USB install a countless amount of times, and I tried upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 to 11.04, but it never worked. I finally installing it from Windows by the wubi installer, and now it works perfectly.

Ubuntu :: Update Programs In Older Versions?

Jun 7, 2010

I'm sorry if this is recurring subject, but I have searched the forum for such a subject and can't find one.I'm using Xubuntu 8.10, I'd like to update my programs to the latest releases, but the available updates in 8.10 versions are not the newest ones. I can't upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu due to some known issues with older Intel drivers.

Is it possible to have the latest updates of packages while I still using 8.10 version?

Ubuntu :: Older Versions Of Programs In Repositories

Mar 14, 2011

There are bugs in a program that the newer version is supposed to have fixed but the Ubuntu Repositories only have an older version.

1) Is there a place I can check to see if there is an update planned for the Ubuntu Repositories soon?

2) If I download and install the newer version from the source's website, will this break getting future updates from the Ubuntu Repositories using apt-get or aptitude or synaptic?

3) What else should I think about?

Mar 17, 2011

When I turn on my computer, because of frequent updates it will display several versions of Ubuntu 10.10 that I can choose from. I wonder if it is possible to delete some of the older versions and how. I think having several versions of Ubuntu uses up a lot of space in the hard drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Repository Of Older Versions Of Server Do Not Work?

Jun 3, 2011

I installed Ubuntu Server 8.10, 9.04, 10.04, until I discovered that the packages of these versions to upgrade and install graphics settings are not available, then install the current version is 11.04 and there I found that repositories responded and set me right. Then the repositories of previous versions are not available? When I install the current version on all packages that I need to back packs and save it for if I need it later.

How do I get the packages and put together a repository itself if others were dashed this is still operating, and maintenance would be needed?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Prevent Removal Of Older Kernel Versions On Update

Jul 28, 2010

I need to prevent that the latest kernel update removes the only kernel that still works in my computer. how can i do this? Currently I have 3 linux kernels versions:


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-23-generic
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-23-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-22-generic


But only the oldest works. With the new update there is a new kernel version (2.6.32-24) that possibly will not boot (like previous 2.6.32-* kernels) and also I expect that, as in previous updates, the oldest kernel will become inaccessible, thus rendering my ubuntu unbootable.

PS: unsolved threads on the underlaying problem: Can't boot default kernel after upgrading from 9.xx to 10.04 lucid Upgrade to 10.04 freezes on the Ubuntu screen

General :: Removing Previous Older Kernels 'vmlinuz' When Updates Get Newer Versions

Is removing previous older kernels "vmlinuz", when updates do get a newer version an easy task, or do the more recent Linux like Ubuntu 9.10 do that automatically, and only keep a few older previous kernels ?

Ubuntu :: Why Older Versions Of Ubuntu Are So Much Faster?

Mar 26, 2011

I would love to use ubuntu 5.10 on computer with 1GH CPU, 384 MB RAM and NVIDIA FX5200, It just flyes, the problem is canonical doesn't support this version anymore(I can find latest packages on some remote reps, but these versions although latest for 5.10 are OLD) and it is impossible to use more or less decent software Is the slowdown reason - kernel? And linux distros getting slower? Or is this a reason of Ubuntu developers?

Fedora :: Install And Use Multiple Versions Of Gcc (on F15)?

Jun 6, 2011

For my work it is extremely useful to have multiple versions of gcc available. I've done this in the past under Ubuntu simply by enabling alternative or older repositories but in Fedora land I've not been able to find a standard automated way of doing this. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Fedora :: Install An Older Version Of Wine?

Dec 30, 2009

The newest version of wine 32-bit (1.1.32?) seems to be a disaster. I had Newsbin Pro working great in Fedora 10. Now this program won't run with wine.i686 on Fedora 12 x64.

I have tried Crossover Linux 8 standard and Newsbin Pro works with that. Crossover is using wine 1.1.18. However that will cost me $40.

How do I install an older version of wine with the dependencies in Fedora 12 x64?
I searched for an rpm and found various flavors of wine rpms. Can I just install that older rpm?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Install Older Version Of Java JDK

Jun 10, 2010

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?

Hardware :: Install Fedora 13 On An Older Dell PC?

Sep 30, 2010

This is probably a dumb question...but you know what they say about dumb questions...

I would like to install Fedora 13 on an older Dell PC (which had at one point run Fedora).

But I plan to download and burn the ISO bootable Fedora CD/DVD on my Windows 7 box.

The question then becomes: Does the 32-bit versus 64-bit distinction have to do with the download and ISO-CD/DVD creation (what OS and hardware you're doing it on)?


Does the 32-bit versus 64-bit distinction have to do with the *Target* OS and hardware (in this case Fedora 13, and I assume 32-bit)?

So, do I download the 64-bit version or the 32-bit version (the older Dell is 32-bit hardware)?

Fedora :: Prompt End User To Install New Versions?

May 30, 2011

Does Fedora Now Prompt End Users To Install New Versions? If so, what a terrible idea and how do I disable it? So, I get a late night call from one of the people I support with their PC. You know, the basic PC user who barely knows enough to be dangerous. I'm sure we all have friends like this, who we help out and keep Linux running for them. Anyway, he says Fedora prompted him to upgrade to Fedora 15 (from 13) and of course, he says OK. He usually says OK when fedora asks to update his software.

Now things are hosed, he can't get on-line and worst of all, he's running F15 with Gnome3 and can't find his way around or do the things he's used to doing. Why on earth would fedora prompt to upgrade to a new version via the net? (..btw - he said it took forever.. ) I'm sure this exact scenario will be played out 1000s of times and peeps like me will be wasting lots of time straightening things out after the fact. Seems to me Fedora should not prompt for full version upgrades. It's trouble waiting to happen and that kind of thing should be user initiated by someone who actually knows what they are doing, so as to avoid the scenario that just played out with me.

Fedora :: Install Multiple Versions Of Package?

Sep 29, 2010

I do quite a bit of testing of a FOSS package, which I install from rpm. At any one time there may be 3 versions ( current release, new release candidate, and snapshot of trunk) that I wish to test. If I stick to normal naming conventions (i.e. current release fred-2010.0...rpm, release candidate fred-2010.2...rpm, and trunk fred-2010.3...rpm) it seems to me that I can only have one version installed at any one time. Is there a 'proper' way of managing this (using the package manager), so that I can have multiple versions installed at any one time?

Fedora :: Install An Older Kernel - Custom - But RPM Wont Let ?

Mar 3, 2010

I am building a series of custom kernels...for one of them i am using a kernel that is older than my currently installed ones.

I am using rpm to install this kernel and it will not install, period. i don't get why i can't install this....what does it matter that i am installing an older kernel? and why is fedora/rpm designed to not let me do this?


There should be an easy way to get around this, but i haven't figured it out yet. i've googled around, no luck. i bounce between kernel versions all the time without problems on my system, so why is rpm setup for strict versions on a kernel? and is there no way around this, and i just have to delete all three of those kernels, i don't really want to. 2 of them are awesome and i shouldn't have to build them again, that would be complete crap! and i wouldn't have this problem on my debian setup, so why fedora? (i generally think fedora is better)

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.

Fedora Hardware :: How To Install "older" Nvidia 195 Drivers

Sep 17, 2010

The drivers from rpmfusion are the 256.xx version drivers. Unfortunately I have two games from LGP - X2 "the treat" and X3 "Reunion", and those games have BIG problems with the newer 256 drivers.So - I am forced to install the "older" 195.xx range drivers (the last ones that behaved good). The problem is - I cannot use rpmfusion for that -they have only the latest drivers and no older ones-, so I amd forced to download the drivers and install everything by hand.

At first I tought "no problem". I have done that before with other distro's like Mandriva, openSUE, PCLinuxOS etc. and never had any trouble. It was just a case of installing the kernel headers, developmenpackages, compile the driver and tweak the xorg.conf file.After a restart everything works as I wanted.With Fedora 13 however it seems not to go that easy. The first try resulted in a lock-up - even to a point I could not use Ctrl+Alt+F"x" to switch to a terminal. By the way - I "disabled" the nouveau driver in the grub startup configuration, but that also did not helped one bit. This is weird, as compiling did not give any error and I have to assume that part was going ok. I really have no idea what is going wrong here.

Ubuntu :: Difference Between LTS Versions And Other Versions?

Jun 30, 2011

I'm not to clear on the difference between LTS versions and other versions, but think I may want to go with LTS. Can someone tell me if my thinking is correct given the following situation: I have some very cool, but very expensive software installed with a group license from my school, a school which I am not going to be attending for too much longer. So I want to go as long as possible without reinstalling Ubuntu, because once the product is licensed it will be licensed until I reinstall Ubuntu (or I uninstall the program). So I think this is going to require me keep the Ubuntu version I install as long as possible.

So in this case, should I go with 10.04LTS or should I just install Natty Narwhal and keep that as long as possible? It looks like 10.04LTS will be "supported" longer, but I'm not exactly clear on all that "supported" entails. Presumable it means security and software updates will be available for 10.04LTS for much longer than 11.x versions? So I'm thinking I should go with 10.04LTS

Is my thinking correct in going with 10.04LTS? Edit: It was pointed out that this would be against my contractual agreements. Which I suppose is probably true.
