Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading With Least Amount Of Hassle - No Longer Supported Anymore

Aug 3, 2011

I would like to upgrade my linux distro, since I'm using Karmic Koala and it is no longer supported anymore. However, upgrading via the updater always breaks my system, so I want to do a clean install. However, I have a LOT of programs installed in this machine, including a good number of games. Otherwise I think most of my data is neatly confined to my home folder, which I can easily transfer via external hard drive.

How do I get all my programs over, however? Like my PDF printer, for example, or all my games, or Inkscape, or Skype, or any number of things that I have installed. Especially WICD. I can never get my wireless internet to work without WICD. I will make a list of my programs beforehand, just in case something goes wrong, but is there any kind of less painful and time-consuming way to do this than going back and installing every program all over again from scratch?

Ubuntu Installation :: Graphics And GUI No Longer Supported After Upgrade?

Mar 1, 2010

The last time I updated Linux it was from Gibbon to Heron. (so 7.10 to 8.04 ) I'm now trying to get caught back up. Thing is, now that I updated from 8.04 to 8.10 I can no longer get to a GUI. Also, most of the text in the terminal is a diamond character as if the font that's installed doesn't want to work most of the time. This is somewhat confusing, but I believe my system's language was set as Japanese before the upgrade and now it's trying to display Kana and/or Kanji and the terminal doesn't like that. Not really important, but I'm not sure how to proceed to the next upgrade or get to a GUI. Fortunately, my system's set up to dual-boot with windows. Can someone help tell me how to get my GUI back or what package to install?

I'm running on a laptop with an ATI mobility Radeon 9700. I've had problems with it and drivers in previous versions back to 6.10 too, but never to the point that the GUI wouldn't work.It's actually an issue with my X Server. I tried "startx" and it says "No Screens found". I looked in my xorg.conf file and there are two screens listed at the bottom. It produced a log too, but I can't get my Flash drive to mount so I can't say exactly what it says. It did mention that there were a lot of font directories that didn't exist along with a few other warnings.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From 9.10 To 10.04 - System No Longer Boots

Feb 10, 2010

After upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 my System no longer boots. I had a Dual-Boot System. On Boot I get - "error : the symbol 'grub_puts_' not found grub rescue> (prompt):
If I run 'insmode /boot/grub/normal.mod' (I get the same error)
If I run 'insmode /boot/grub/ext2.mod' (I get 'The symbol 'grub_xasprinf' not found)
If I run ls /boot (The Kernel File Names look Ok)

If I run in Rescue Mode it Reports (The installer could not find any partitions, so you will not be able to mount a root file system. This may be caused by the Kernel failing to detect your hard disk drive or failing to read the partition table, or the disk may be unpartitioned. If you wish, you may investigate this from a shell in the installer environment.) I ran the recommended reporting script and got the following output:-

= Boot Info Summary: =
=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #4 for /boot/grub.
=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb
=> Syslinux is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdd <<< This is my USB Flashdrive .....

Ubuntu Installation :: After Upgrading To Lucid Laptop No Longer Boots?

May 11, 2010

I just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid and my system will no longer boot. The upgrade completed without any error messages, but upon reboot, it hangs at the loading screen. I cannot start the system in recovery mode either. Same issue happens. To get to the command line, I've appended:


to the kernel line in grub. I then remount so I have r/w access.

It appears to be an issue with udev. While the loading screen is "loading," udevd_work scrolls a bunch of stuff that's too fast for me to read (nor can I copy and paste it).

/var/log/udev isn't showing any recent errors, only messages from before the upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To 10.04 - Can No Longer Open Manually Installed Bittorent Client

Jun 26, 2010

When trying from the link which was in the applications menu, and manually from terminal I receive the following errors:


I have since tried the HOWTO: Install Azureus (newest, non-repo way) method of installing Vuze/Azureus, which I think is what I set up for 9.04, and also a synaptic complete removal and reinstall which didn't work.

I have an .azureus folder in my home dir which I would like to keep because it contains my settings and half downloaded torrents etc.

I would be happy to use the the synaptic packaged version of Vuze because it is much more up to date than it has been in the past.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Is 10.10 Worth All The Installation Hassle?

Oct 31, 2010

All on All Hallo(w)s Evening [HallowE'en] To who ever it may concern Dear Sir or Madam I am a relative newbie to computing having only started just two years ago. Up until today I have been using Windows Vista, but having come across the refreshing open source, creative commons and free software foundations that are much closer to my heart's way of thinking I decided to download and install Ubuntu as a prerequisite to switching completely away from paid for operating systems and software.

In order to do this I firstly purchased a new 1Gb hard drive and installed it alongside my factory installed 250Gb hard drive with the windows factory image etc on it. I then partitioned the new drive with 30Gb for Ubuntu, another 300Gb for any future backups (Yes I know it's a lot) from my separate Windows Vista OS 250Gb hard drive, which left 600Gb spare.

I got up early today a Sunday morning at 0500hrs to ensure I had plenty of download speed etc and that all would be done and dusted by the time I needed to be available today for family and community social commitments etc However nothing has worked out in anyway like I would have expected it to or in anyway like Ubuntu's descriptions project, and I am typing this letter nearly 7 hours later and I have still not got Ubuntu properly installed as a dual boot system alongside my windows vista. In fact I am very surprised at the somewhat illogical and careless approach that the web pages take in explaining how to download and install Ubuntu.

Firstly I arrive at the webpage : [URL]... To be greeted with an introduction and a red download button to the right.

I click on this and end up on page: [URl]... To be greeted by another red download button that is at least six times larger than the previous one and because it is in exactly the same place on this page as the previous one was on the previous page my mouse is already hovering over it and my brain just wants to click it and start using Ubuntu.

I quickly read the instructions: Click the big orange button to download the latest version of Ubuntu. You will need to create a CD or USB stick to install Ubuntu

And then I click to download and save/burn the download straight to a CD, which as you may well already realize is "Goodbye CD" because as I have since learned all I was doing was burning an exact copy of an ISO file to the CD that cannot be used for installing or booting from.

After I finally give up trying to get the ISO file to install ubuntu some 30-40 minutes later it's already 7am because it also took 40 minutes to download the file. Anyway I go back to the download page and read the instructions again including the little paragraphs that are underneath the huge red download button.

Originally my thoughts had been "These are obviously not that important because they are "below" the download button otherwise if they were of importance these instructions would have been placed above the HUGE Red download button along with any warnings like---

Before you download Ubuntu please check the following: A. Is this an installation to a PC with ubuntu already installed --- please click here

I'm well aware of Songbird no longer being supported for Linux but I know there is .deb package out there somewhere. Hopefully in the latest release for Linux as well. 've searched but have found nothing. The thing is, I can't find anything 'I like' other than Songbird. It's such a shame its no longer supported.

Ubuntu :: Graphics Adapter No Longer Supported By ATI

Jan 23, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. It is an older laptop with a Radeon Xpress 200m video card, which apparently is unsupported by the newest version of the proprietary ATI drivers. Right now I am using the default graphics adapter that was installed, however, all of my games run abysmally. There isn't one game I have played (World of Goo, Gish, Eschalon Book I) that has played decently. They all suffer from screen flicker and tremendous slowdowns. Is there any option for me since the 200m is no longer supported by ATI?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Error - Kernel: [time] Sisfb: Mode 'none' Not Supported Anymore. Using Default

Aug 7, 2010

I have just upgraded to 11.3 and work in icewm (I have kde apps installed but no other desktops). When I boot up the computer it gives me this console error message:

kernel: [time] sisfb: Mode 'none' not supported anymore. Using default.
kernel: [time] sisfb: Fatal error: Unable to reserve 16MB framebuffer memory
kernel: [time] sisfb: Is there another framebuffer driver active?
Apart from that I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. The computer isn't displaying immediate symptoms to me. I checked the hardware sticky and when I have a few hours I can work through

HTML Code:
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Configuring_graphics_cards but I don't have that kind of time at the moment, so I wanted to check that that was the route I should be going down before I did. I googled this stuff but everything seems to start from a knowledge base above mine and leaves me clueless.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Ubuntu Servers :: Management Tool For Multiple Server Instances - Webmin No Longer Supported

Jun 20, 2010

i started to look into upgrading my LTS ubuntu server instances to Lucid. one the notable things that i have discovered is the lack of support for Webmin; it seems that Debian is no longer supporting packages required by Webmin. But it also appears that ubuntu team believes that Webmin may actually cause problems as it works in a different way than that presumed by Ubuntu. so i am now left with no way to manage my 10+ instances of ubuntu server that i used for studying and research. it seems that i am left with cluster-ssh as an alternative. but are there other alternatives, ideally similar to webmin?

Ubuntu :: After Upgrading From 9.04 To 10.04 Conky No Longer Displays?

Apr 23, 2011

After upgrading from 9.04 to 10.04 Conky no longer displays as it used to.I believe it has something to do with own_window_type set to override. If I change this to desktop, dock, or normal it displays.Conky starts without any errors but just does not display anything.
The best lead I had thus far was that it was something in ~/.cache, but even after deleting that and having it recreated still no cigar.

Ubuntu :: Change From 32 To 64-bit With Minimum Hassle?

Jul 13, 2010

I have a 32-bit Ubuntu installation that for technical reasons needs to be 64-bit even though it has under 4 gigs of ram. I don't want to spend loads of time upgrading it, and almost everything is from the repository. So what I am hoping is that I will be able to find a way to "save" the programs I have installed and then automatically reinstall them when I install the 64-bit OS, install my (2) non-repository programs, and then simply reload the old home directory. Would that work, and how would I do it?
