Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Older Version?

Oct 3, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install An Older Version Of G++

Feb 3, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Which Version For Older Machines?

Aug 16, 2011

I do some volunteer work repairing and re-purposing older computers for the Salvation Army Thrift store where I live. Of course most of the computers we get are older. My reason is to get some of the poorer kids a fighting chance at school. We sell these things for next to nothing to accomplish this. I include free tech/training support for 30 days to get them started as. My problem is that finding a version of ubuntu and openoffice that will run on them is becoming difficult. Any suggestions as to a version that works for those not real familiar with computers?

Ubuntu Installation :: Which Distro And Version For Older Computer?

Jan 20, 2010

this is my first time actually asking for help here, so forgive me if I make any mistakes. The other day I was trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my mom's old system (not too old, has vista on it) and even from the live cd it wouldn't boot. Then I tried 8.04 because I know that works on my XP system. However it would freeze during boot but at least showed that it was booting (the bar was starting to fill).

The system is an eMachine T5226:
CPU : Intel Pentium D Processor 925 (Dual-Core)
64-bit processor with Intel EM64T Technology
(Each core operates at 3.0GHz | 2 x 2MB L2 Cache | 800MHz FSB)
Operating System : Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium
Chipset : Intel 945G


Since we bought it it's been upgraded to 2 GB of ram and has a nVidia 8400gs video card and a belkin wireless adapter now. I can't understand why the live cds won't fully boot since my single core 2.2Ghz boots just fine with 8.04.

I was thinking of trying 6.06 to see of that might work. However I was unsure if the system is capable of running Ubuntu and might need Kubuntu or another distro.

Ubuntu Installation :: Downgrade To Firefox Older Version In 10.04?

May 8, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04, and am quite happy with it so far, but it installed Firefox 3.6, which is a problem for me because I need to be able to use the Jssh plugin, which isn't available for 3.6 yet. All I need to do is downgrade Firefox to 3.5, but I seem to be having some issues, it seems that there is only the one version available to me in Synaptic. Is there another repository that I need to add to have access to an older version?

Ubuntu Installation :: Updating Apps - Remove The Older Version

Jan 15, 2010

Using Synaptic and/or terminal is great and so easy, but i have noticed that applications are not always the latest versions that are in the repository ie cups for instance So if i wanted to download the latest app from a website, what is the best way to install, based on having an earlier version already installed. Is it better to just install over an older version or remove the older version, and then install the new version clean

If you remove and older version of an application first, what is the best method for doing this and removing any residual files etc that might be left on your system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Logon Loop And Need To Revert To Older Version

Feb 5, 2010

Ever since updating to 9.10 from 9.04 I have been experiencing a logon loop problem. Maybe 1 in 15 tries is successful. When I was able to logon I was not able to mount the multi-boot Hd.. (Windows NTFS, Linux root Sda2, Home Sda3, Swap Sda4, + unallocated space). A error screen told me that I didn't have admin privileges.. Thats incorrect as I'm the only user and logged on at the time. Some other changes I tried also produced the same error. I found some clues on this forum to address the logon issue, and changed my resolution to 1280 x960 and that seems to let me logon each time as needed. But trying to mount the hd still results in the error message.

I cannot use the computer at the current resolution, too hard on the eyes.. (don't know how anyone could). My question is... Since I have the live CD for version 9.04 and that version worked just fine, how should I or do I need to delete ver 9.10 and than reinstall version 9.04? If I run the 9.04 install program will it automatically choose the Sda2 partition, or do I need to precondition and define Sda2 & Sda3, & swap drives again? Will it perform the installation seeing that theres a newer version already on the hd? Also is there a option to uncheck so I won't get any auto-updates because it appears that the newer version is not compatible with my computer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Un-install Modeswitch And Load An Older Version

Oct 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Generic - Pae Fails But Older Version Works

May 2, 2011

After a massive meltdown with the upgrade, I finally got the system put back together. Had to reinstall grub. It now defaults to a version that says "Generic - pae". When choosing this from the grub menu, it always hangs on the Ubuntu splash screen; however, I found that when I choose "previous Linux versions" from the grub menu, then choose the Ubuntu-generic, everything works fine - other than my initial bad impression of unity - but it works, at least.

why my default choice in grub doesn't work, and what I need to do to fix it? Below is a cut and paste from /boot/grub/grub.cfg. The first entry is the one that does NOT work, and the first entry after "submenu" is the entry that DOES work.

menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic-pae (recovery mode)' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
set gfxpayload=$linux_gfx_mode

Ubuntu Installation :: Older Version Of Libqt4 On Dist-upgraded System

Sep 1, 2010

I am developing an application for Qt 4.6 and I am happy that Lucid has recently introduced this version of Qt in it's repository. However, a collegue of mine cannot install my application, and when I try to find out why I see that He is still looking at libqt4 version 4.5 in the repository. Notably, He recently made a dist-upgrade (I believe is the term) from Karmic to Jaunty and from Jaunty to Lucid.Does anyone know why he has a different repository, or perhaps even what I could do to get Him up to 4.6 in an apt-ly manner, so to speak?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From 10.10 To 11.04 Version

Sep 1, 2011

I am just a fresh starter at Ubuntu so I ask you for some comprehension and to answer my question about a problem I have. I had started upgrading Ubuntu from 10.10 to 11.04, everything went fine until a message appeared saying:

Failed to fetch [URL]...untu1_i386.deb 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch [URL]...untu3_i386.deb 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch [URL]...3.11-1_all.deb 404 Not Found

Failed to fetch [URL]..._1.0.3_all.deb 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch [URL]..._1.0.3_all.deb 404 Not Found

Then I had to close the upgrading process because of that message I tried again but it came out with the same result.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To The Latest Version From 9.04?

May 25, 2011

I've not really need the computer for much for a while and have let the updates slip! I've got 9.04 and obviously need a newer version. I read that it's best to upgrade to 9.10 first then go from there, but my version is so old all the information is using update manager (just click this button blah blah) but of course this isn't supported now so can't use that method.

I don't really know any other way to upgrade other than following the links in update manager

ps forgot to say my cd coping sometimes messes up, don't know if it's software or hardware so was looking for methods to avoid downloading onto cds then upgrading from that! but will have to try this if no other way

Ubuntu :: Install Package Meant For Older Version Of Ubuntu On Newer Version?

Jan 22, 2011

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....

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Looks Like An Older Version?

Apr 8, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: What Version Is Available For Older Computers

May 10, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Get An Older Version Of Pidgin?

Jul 3, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Which Version Of 8.04 For Older Abit AN-M2HD

Jul 10, 2010

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.
