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.

General :: What The Difference Between The Unquoted And Quoted Versions

Apr 9, 2011

what the title mentioned expressions do? I googled it but all i find is weired useless quote pages (the internet is getting worse and worse it seems). Especially I would be interested in understanding what the difference between the unquoted and quoted versions of the same expression is, ie. $@ vs "$@".

Ubuntu :: Stable Are The Updated Versions?

Jan 15, 2010

Trying to get the thunderbird localization working I briefly checked thunderbird 3, to see if it had the same issue. Now, the problem is, I accidentally installed new versions of Firefox 3.5 and XULrunner. If I remove them, then many other packets get removes due to dependencies. Same if I try to force version. If I simply remove the repos, then synaptic reports them as broken. Is there anything I can do to solve this? How stable are the updated versions? How often do they get updated?

Ubuntu :: Is TraceMonkey Used In 64-bit Versions Of Firefox

Apr 15, 2010

I've from different sources that the TraceMonkey JS engine is available:

1) in 32-bit Fx 3.5+ and 64-bit Fx 3.6+

2) only in 32-bit Fx 3.5+ (and 64-bit nigthly builds)

3) in both 32- and 64-bit Fx 3.5+ etc. I've heard that to run TM one has to have the entry javascript.options.jit.content set to true - I have this entry and it is set to true by default (and I use 64-bit Fx 3.5).

Ubuntu :: Installing Old Versions Of Apps On 10.04?

May 4, 2010

I've found lots of posts about reinstalling applications when they're already installed but I'd like to install Mediawiki v1.14, instead of the current v1.15, in order to replicate an older Windows implementation of Mediawiki. I've installed Ubuntu desktop 10.04 and Synaptic offers me only v1.15 of Mediawiki. So can I use Synatpic or the Ubuntu Software Center to obtain this slightly old version 1.14 of Mediawiki? If I use Synaptic to obtain v1.14, will it also provide the additional packages (Apache, PHP, MySql etc.,) in the same way that it would for v1.15?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.xx Versions To 10.04?

May 27, 2010

My main computers are still on 8.04 and 8.10 versions, and it's certainly time to upgrade with a new LTS version 10.04. So, what's the best way to upgrade? I certainly want to maintain my current setup and data for apps like my email (I use sylpheed) and Firefox.

Should I just use Update Manager? It is currently offering me 9.04, for example, does that mean I will need to upgrade through each version a step at a time, or can I jump some versions?

Ubuntu :: Booting With Certain Versions Of The Kernel

Jul 14, 2010

I've been having some odd kernel issues recently. A while back I installed 2.6.32rc6 when I first upgraded to 9.04, because it solved issues I was having with surround sound. A few months back I installed mythtv and the mythbuntu binaries as well, although I have since uninstalled them. All of a sudden, I seemed to have issues booting into ubuntu with certain versions of the kernel, where it would just freeze at the white ubuntu logo, while other versions of the kernel would load fine (I think 2.6.31?) but it would display the mythbuntu logo instead (not sure if this is related).

I just upgraded to 10.04, and I still seem to have issues booting with certain kernel versions. Right now I'm running 2.6.32-020632rc6-generic which seems to work, but it's outdated, and I have surround sound issues again. Which one should I be using? Is there a way to clean this mess up? How do I fix the problem of freezing at the boot screen?

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 :: Gcc Versions 4.4 And 4.5 Both Present In Natty

May 7, 2011

I've just done an upgrade install from Maverick to Natty, and noticed (while poking about in Synaptic) that version 4.4 of g++ was installed alongside 4.5. (Further investigation revealed that this was the case for both gcc and gcj as well.)

If anyone here installed Natty from scratch, could they look in Synaptic and tell me if both versions come installed by default? Or can I assume the presence of 4.4 is simply because it was installed under Maverick and get rid of it?

I'm using the "Ubuntu Classic" interface (i.e. Gnome) and admit that I don't know if it's possible to get the required information from Unity's "Ubuntu Software Centre".

How do I know the exact kernel version (or rpm package name) of fedora 14 without having to install one? I couldn't find the information on the the website. And one more question. Does one fedora distribution has only one kernel available all the time? Where can I find all the kernels for a particular distribution (for example Fedora 12) distributed by Fedora Project? I can find all the available kernels for a RedHat Enterprise distribution on [URL], but not for Fedora.

General :: Different Versions Of Libdc1394?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm working on a project that uses libdc1394 to interface with Point-Grey Firewire cameras. We build the code on Ubuntu 8, Timesys, and Ubuntu 9 primarily. We usually use the package manager for most dependencies on the Ubuntu's, and the Timesys installation seems to be compiled from source.

Now here's the part that confuses me. I can't figure out what version of libdc1394 is on the Timesys installation. Looking at the library files, I can find a file named libdc1394.so.20.0.0. But these are the header files that I have:

dc1394_control.h dc1394_register.h dc1394_vendor_avt.h
dc1394_conversions.h dc1394_utils.h

They're in a folder named dc1394. From what I see on the Ubuntu 8 package (which is libdc1394 version

1), I only see dc1394_control.h. And it's in a libdc1394 folder.

From what I see on the Ubuntu 9 computer, which uses libdc1394 version 2.2 (that's the version in the repository), I have a dc1394 folder and then an include directory that looks like the copy I find here:[URL]..

I can't find anything about a major change between version 2.0 and 2.2. From the sourceforge page, it looks like the 2.0 version is similar to the Ubuntu 9 version. it seems I have 3 different versions of the library? I understand why Ubuntu 8 and Ubuntu 9, but not why the copy that we have installed on Timesys is different.

Once again, I'm decently sure the one on Timesys was compiled from source. I wasn't around when they did that though, so I don't know for certain.

Programming :: Two Versions Of Gcc On The Same Machine?

Jan 6, 2010

I am currently running CentOS 5.3 which includes the gcc 4.1.2 compiler. I need to compile a Realtek 8139 NIC driver for VMware ESXi.

The GPL sources and documentation from VMware show that the source file 8139too.c needs to be modified and re-compiled to run with the small busy-box ESXi kernel, and it *very* specifically states that gcc 3.2 is to be used.

I have the gcc 3.2 rpm but am afraid to force it on/over the 4.1.2 install. To be honest, I have not even checked dependencies yet.

Where do I start to get both versions of the compiler on the same box without them stepping all over each other.
