A big catastroph in my computer,I'm running slackware current Yesterday after finding a security update for thunderbird 3.1.4 in my mail, as I've suscribed to receive newsletter.So I run the slackpkg update and then a slackpkg upgrade-all. During this process I had a message asking me what to do with duplicated libraries of old versions for :

R Remove

So I decided to remove old versions. Since that all shortcuts for these applications have disapeared from my desktop. the commands for these programms don't work. And the menus have gone from the kickoff application launcher.

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Removed Environment

Dec 27, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. I recently started messing with the desktop environment, going from GNOME to Ubuntu Studio to Netbook Remix... and then I decided to remove the Netbook look and go back to Studio, by removing it through the Software Manager. But this seemed to remove any and all desktop environments present. So now I just have the xterm. This was not part of the plan. I can get the Software Manager up and running, but I cannot get packages. I could try to provide the exact error message I get when I try, though I'm not entirely sure how to bring it to you. Is there a way I can get a desktop environment back after such a screw-up?

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Removed Some Pretty Essential Stuff Via Synaptic?

Jul 30, 2011

I recently had to install Python 2.7 to run some specific cripts and so tried to uninstall Python 2.6 so that I didn't have to worry about path conflicts. It seems that when uninstalling the Python package it's stripped most of the apps from my installation, including fairly essential stuff like the terminal. It also seemed to stop accepting my password as a root user, though I'm hoping a reboot may fix that.

Can anyone provide a listing of the default packages that Ubuntu ships with please so I can try to repair my system? I tried looking through ones I might know but it appears for example that while Bash is installed I have no Terminal entry under Applications.

Slackware :: Upgrade From 64 13.0 To 13.1 Using Slackpkg

Sep 18, 2010

I decided to upgrade from Slackware64 13.0 to 13.1 using slackpkg. I did a slackpkg install-new and afterwards, upgrade-all. My first problem was solved regarding libblkid. The second one, with DIALUPS_CHECK_ENB and NOLOGIN_STR was solved too. Now, when booting, the system says it can't find /sbin/mount, swapon, hwlock and fsck, and also /proc/filesystems and /proc/ioports. It asks for the root password for maintenance and boots again afterwards. Do you have any idea what should I look for, because the mentioned /sbin/_files _ are at /sbin ?

Mar 30, 2011

Today I moved my Slackware64-current installations to multilib. I blacklisted the gcc and glib packages in the blacklist-file for slackpkg. In the blacklistfile they say:

# Now we can blacklist using regular expressions.
# This one will blacklist all SBo packages:
I have blacklisted

# The gcc compiler suite:

# The GNU libc libraries:

How I can use the mentioned regular expressions in order to make blacklisting more efficient?

Slackware :: Run Slackpkg Upgrade-all From Cron?

Mar 16, 2010

I'm going to rebuild a computer for a friend of mine. I'm going to install 12.2 in it and wanted to see if there was a way to install patches automatically from a cron. I don't think slackpkg can do such thing as a cron, correct? For anyone that set up a Slackware box for someone with little Linux knowledge, how did you handle the ability for the person to update the box?

Slackware :: Slackpkg Blacklisting ; Can A Wildcard Be Used

Dec 15, 2009

if I've missed this in the doc's, but I don't see the ability to "wildcard" blacklist for packages to _not_ be changed out via the slackpkg program.More specifically, I tagged all my packages like this:


note the "OLDFOGIE" in my package name? So can something such as:



be put into slackpkg blacklist file?

Slackware :: System To Email When There Is An Update Available Via Slackpkg

May 17, 2010

I want my system to email me when there is an update available via slackpkg. I decided to try a bash script to do the notification. So I started down this route:

VAR = $(slackpkg check-updates)
VAR1 = "No news is good news "
if [ "$VAR" = "$VAR1" ] then; . . .

I keep getting an error on the string comparison. I am guessing the variable types are different but I can't figure out how to fix it. Does anyone know how I can fix this script or accomplish the task at hand.

Slackware :: Best Way To Roll Back From Slackpkg Updates?

Mar 7, 2010

Like others here it seems I had problems with the latest -current. I can't startx, no sound, etc. I put back the video drivers and such from the 13 CD but now have a bunch of other issues, video will flash every now and then and sometimes go blank so I can only reboot as exiting xwindows and going back in its still blank. I tried booting from the 13 cd and reinstalling without formatting my root partition but that dies in the kde games for some reason and setup won't start again. I was trying to not format and loose all the updates just put back 13 but that doesn't seem to be working.
