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

Mar 30, 2010

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 :: How To Remove The Older Versions 10.04

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.

What I want to do now is remove 10.04, as well as GRUB. GRUB first comes up, and I select my Windows partition. Then I choose Ubuntu to load, and then another GRUB comes up. how do I remove 10.04, as well as make loading Ubuntu more simple?

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?

Ubuntu :: Multiple Version Of 10.10 - Delete Some Of The Older Versions?

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

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?

Debian Multimedia :: DE For Older Thinkpad T41?

Jul 21, 2010

I was wondering if anyone uses older laptops (for e.g., Centrino M) like Thinkpads from the T40-series.I am finding LXDE to be extremely buggy. There's been more than one occasion in which I've been totally surprised at weird 'events.' It's been so often that it annoys me now and I wish to switch DEs now.

I guess my choices are Gnome, KDE and xfce. I think KDE 4 will be too bloated so I guess that leaves Gnome and xfce. I also read that LXDE is actually a 'beta' (release?) even though LXDE versions are in 'release' form. I come across too many 'bugs' so I think the other desktops, even if it takes up a bit more resources, is a compromise I have to take.

Is xfce the best choice for an older laptop like mine? I thought LXDE sounded great and had great potential but the amount of bugs I find and the fact it looks like there's not much of a team developing and working on it, is disconcerting. Hopefully, things will improve but I don't want to work out or encounter 'bugs' on my laptop so often.

Debian :: Multiple Versions Of A Same Package?

Aug 22, 2010

On my lenny+backports+debianmultimedia desktop I see two annoyances. 1st: There are multiple versions of same packages. But while attempting to remove the older versions I see apt-get is removing some essential packages. Is there any way to kill this duplicacy of packages? Here is a list of packages whose multiple instances are installed:



Note: Just for sanity's sake I want to remove the extra versions and disable that error message, except that I don't see any problem.

Debian Installation :: Several Versions Of Linux On One PC

Nov 11, 2014

Is it correct to assume that I can install many versions of Linux on a PC, provided for each Linux I set up a separate ext4 partition, and GRUB will let me select which OS to load? If so then:

1. I do not have to set up a separate SWAP partition for each Linux, do I? Will one SWAP serve all the OS?

2. If I wanted my /home directory to reside on a separate partition so that my data will not be lost if I reinstall Linux, do I have to create a separate /home partition for every Linux? Or they can share one?

Debian Installation :: Transition To New Versions?

Mar 10, 2010

what is involved in upgrading from one major version of Debian to another. When your version is no longer supported, can you just get the DVDs for the current version and run the installer and it detects this is a previous version and only upgrades things as necessary?

Debian :: Different Package Versions From Same Repository

Jan 10, 2016

I noticed today when I was offered by synaptic to update some packages that there seemed to be two versions available from the same repository (stable). How could that happen?

For instance if I check package "xscreensaver" installed version is 5.30-1+b1 and versions available are;
5.34-1 (testing)5.30-1+deb8u1(stable)5.30-1+b1 (stable)

Below is my /etc/apt/sources.list. I'm not sure why, but rows 1 and 6 are identical except for stable beeing replaced by jessie. Row 3 and 7 are almost same too. Because jessie=stable (at the moment), is there any point with having duplicated rows in sources.list?


Select alldeb stable main non-free contrib
deb stable-updates main non-free contrib
deb stable/updates main non-free contrib

deb testing main non-free
deb jessie contrib non-free mainĀ  <--- Same as first row?
deb jessie/updates contrib non-free main

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Official Policy For Newer Versions Of KDE?

Feb 27, 2011

I just wanted to ask about official opinion or policy concerning newer versions of KDE. Is 4.6 still so buggy or unstable to be included in experimental? What steps are going to be made concerning KDE and what when? I don't like GNOME, KDE 3.5 is out of the game now in 6.0 and KDE 4.4 is IMHO all but mature and finished. So I am not sure what to do now, Kubuntu is buggy and don't like it but they have 4.6...

Ubuntu :: Restricted To Debian Versions Of Things Like Perl, MySQL?

Dec 13, 2010

As I mentioned on another thread, I have 2 Ubuntus - Jaunty and Meerkat - as separate drives on my secondary IDE channel. I am removing Jaunty. Meerkat blows it away. And is certainly my preferred OS. However I am looking for a replacement for Jaunty that is more flexible in certain key areas than Ubuntu appears to be.I dont want to be restricted to Debian versions of things like Perl, MySQL, PHP and others. I can run LAMPP, but I would prefer to compile and have the versions of my choice as part of a main test system (apart from Meerkat that is).

I have had enough nightmares in Jaunty with things getting broken and spiralling out of control. I want a distro that doesnt rely on the GUI and its attendant utilities, but can run them when called. Meerkat is stable and has resisted me breaking it so far, but I do not want to push my luck. I have too much time invested in it. I intend to use Meerkat as my primary system on the machine, but want an alternative to *PLAY* with.

Debian Installation :: Etch Install Just Started Warning About Untrusted Versions

Mar 17, 2010

I'm doing a fully automated install of Etch, installing the standard system task. I'm using PXE boot with a preseed file.

I do this a lot, and I've not had problems before. This morning, it's stuck at 5% on "Select and install software" saying "Please wait...". The log on console #4 says:

WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!


Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?

I installed a system yesterday without any problems, so I wonder if there's a recent problem with the mirrors I'm using. My /target/etc/apt/sources.list contains:

General :: Looking For Distro For Older Emachines PC

I have read the sticky and taken the quizzes, even installed ubuntu, mint, and fedora. I am looking for a distro for an older (4+) years E-machine PC. All I really want it to do is play Netflix online, and movies I have stored to an external hard drive. Maybe some torrenting and VERY light document work. I want it to be fast, and stable. Not bloated with all kinds of stuff I don't need like Ubuntu and mint, or crash like fedora every 20 mins.
