Slackware :: Slackpkg,conf.new Accidentally Removed From 13?
Jan 17, 2010
i removed slackpkg.conf.new by accident slackpkg version now i always get this message no matter if i remove package and install it again Your slackpkg.conf is outdated. Please, edit it using slackpkg.conf.new as example or overwrite it with slackpkg.conf.new. You can use 'slackpkg new-config' to do that. what i have to do to eliminate it and make slackpkg working again?
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 :
firefox thunderbird seamonkey R Remove S Skip B Blacklist
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.
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?
i was trying to remove the flash plugin 32bit wrapper (don't remember the exact name of the package),using the command apt-get -y remove --purge and i saw somehow uninstalled a bunch of other programs like the gnome-network manager,emphaty...Now i rebooted and can't log on anymore .Is there a way to repair this,like running an upgrade from the livecd to restore the missing parts without wiping out my conf & other programs ? I've tried this that i found some other forum ,but i didn't work
sudo mkdir /mnt/repair sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/repair sudo chroot /mnt/repair su
I accidentally removed network and sound icon from top panel. Is there any way how to put it back? I've read several howtos that I've to add notification area but it doesn't really work.I know that if I delete this user and create a new one the icons will be there again but I'd like to do it cleaner way.This is how it should look like (untouched user account):And this is what I've done :-/Network icon is missing in both accounts (removed by accident while trying to remove something else :-/ in user "tata" it at least shows sound button.
I accidentally removed the message icon on my top menu bar in lucid lynx. Its the one which you click to get easy access to instant messaging, gwibber and evolution, how do I got about getting it back?
I accidentally removed the sound menu from my panel bar in Ubuntu 10.10. I did manage to find some solutions to get the sound volume applet in place, like it was in previous Ubuntu versions, but I do obviously prefer the new sound menu in place. Does anybody know how I can get it working again?
I accidentally removed the dhclient3 file. I had ran chkrootkit and it said it was a possible suspicious file. Once I rebooted, the network was disabled. I am running off the Ubuntu cd by choosing trial. How can I get dhclient3 back onto my installed Ubuntu?
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.
I am not much experienced with Linux systems and commands. I have been searching with Goggle and trying to solve. Today I had accidentally removed the boot grub menu list. There is a backup file. Now my system boots to >grub command. I have tried all sorts of things from live CD to boot the system I have tried Super Grub also. I am no able to go to the directory where the back up boot menu list is available and change the name from the live CD. Can any one help me with commands to go to the directory and rename the file for booting.
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 ?
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?
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:
I'm running Slackware current, and just did a slackpkg upgrade. I can't startx. I get the following: FATAL: Error inserting i915 (/lib/modules/2.6.33-smp/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915.ko): Invalid module format (EE) intel(0): No kernel mode setting driver detected. (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
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.
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.
I want to upgrade Firefox to 3.6.3 The latest version should be 3.6.3 instead of 3.6.2. But even so, the 3.6.2 version is not there. Should I keep looking for other mirror that has the available software or do I miss anything?
