Debian :: Lenny Squeeze Upgrade Not Completing

May 28, 2010

when I tried to upgrade my computer from Lenny to Squeeze and it downloaded everything but it's stuck at installing udev which it said it couldn't do on the 2.6.26 kernel. I then did update-grub and Squeeze's 2.6.32 kernel was seen (on grub). I have grub-legacy chainloading (if I'm not mistaken) but I don't have grub2 installed. When I try to boot through the 2.6.32 kernel so that I can complete the upgrade (that is to install udev and have everything working fine), instead of reaching the OS, it says something along the lines of "kernel panick not syncing vfs" and something about "root(hd1,0)".

Debian :: Can't Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Sep 15, 2010

I run into a problem when trying to update from lenny to squeeze. Seems that util-linux fails to install due to some error and that this causes xorg as well as udev to fail. If this is the case then it might be a bug in the post-installation script for util-linux..Am I on the right track or is it completely wrong?

Debian :: Lenny To Squeeze Upgrade

Mar 28, 2011

I have a Debian Lenny LAN Gateway machine running shorewall, squid and a source install of ossec in the opt dir. The machine is an Intel Atom based asus hummingbird with no gui. It works well and has been very stable so far. However, i am considering upgrading to Squeeze. Is it feasible to attempt to upgrade this machine, or am i realistically looking at a reinstall and reconfigure with Debian Squeeze over a long weeked?

Debian :: Fail To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Jan 8, 2011

I'm currently using Debian Lenny 5.0.7 and I tryed to upgrade to Squeeze. I followed the instructions from Debian's Guide:

1. I changed my repositories to squeeze in sources.list
2. # aptitude update
3. # aptitude install apt aptitude dpkg
4. # aptitude safe-upgrade

After this last command, the computer kept working for about 7 hours, it consumed 2 gb RAM and 1 gb swap, and in the end aborted with the following message:

I searched around and I found out that this error is somehow related to C/C++ package compilation, but I found nothing specific related to Debian's upgrade.

Debian Installation :: Best Way To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 7, 2011

A week or so ago, I downloaded the current stable and burned it. (lenny)And on the 5th I started installing and finished on the 6th.I then see squeeze was released LOL.I have started using the system and would rather not start over from scratch.(but I will if it is the *best* way to go)I am coming from Ubuntu but I do know my way around the system...

All the threads I see start off by editing the sources list to change lenny to squeezeIs there an easier way?I've looked for a HOWTO but did not see one.I am not looking to stop any part of the system from upgrading.In ubuntu I have gone from distro to distro, but that option is not offered.I checked "Software Sources" -> Updates I do not see the Ubuntu option of allowing distro updates ot be offered.

Debian :: Blocked Packages During Upgrade Lenny To Squeeze

Debian :: Upgrade Lenny To Squeeze Without Disturbing Settings?

Sep 9, 2010

I have actually done quite a lot with Linux servers over the years. One thing I haven't ever done is upgrade one. At this time, however, it looks like my Lenny server must be upgraded to a newer MySQL, and I'm beginning to think it is easier to upgrade the entire installation.Is there a recommended way to upgrade Debian without disturbing home directories, non-standard directories such as /mystuff, config files such as my.cnf and smb.conf, etc?

Debian Installation :: Failed To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 3, 2010

I have tried several times--unscuccessfully-- to upgrade to the testing branch. I change my apt sources to "squeeze". I get either "err" or "ign" on a lot of the sources when updating. I have seen several methods as to how to upgrade from stable to testing and none have worked so far. I have tried "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" as well as using aptitude to do the same similar commands. What I find is the following:

* My kernel never gets upgraded at all.

* udev is broken and mice and keyboard do not work.

* Many packages are held back and not upgraded.

I do have a debian 5 image to re-install and try again but I am not finding it to be as easy as many debian people claim. Also, I did a fresh install of squeeze using the net-install image. When the install finished and I rebooted, the computer hung on boot up. It never seemed to read where the kernel was. It would boot up, the system would beep and then reboot never finding the kernel or boot block apparently. how to get squeeze on my box? It is a 1.2 Ghz computer with 512mb ram with the intel i810 southbridge chipset I believe.

Debian Multimedia :: Workspaces After Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 16, 2011

I have upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze. Aside from a few installation issues, the upgrade went relatively smooth. I had a problem with the graphics proprietary driver not being installed after the upgrade but I was able to solve the problem. I also successfully upgraded the filesystem from ext3 to ext4. One thing that did break on the upgrade is that now I do not have the capability to add and switch workspaces. I went into compizfusion and added for horizontal workspaces, but clicking on them does not switch to them. If I right-click on the preferences, it does not let me allow to add any more workspaces. I can change the number workspaces displayed through Genetal tab in compiz but the graphics appeared that they exist, but when I click or try to even switch between them it does not work. I was able to send a window to workspace two but then I lose all access to it. So it seems it might even exist but the applet in bottom right corner does not let me switch between them.Also draggin a window of the edge to another workspace does not work.

Debian :: Failing To Boot After Lenny / Squeeze Upgrade

Jun 11, 2010

I've done the ordinary sources.list update (lenny to squeeze) and Code: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install dpkg apt aptitude.sudo aptitude full-upgrade However, udev failed to install, and I used..Code: touch /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade and did full-upgrade again. Everything was going fine, I went through several package configurations and suddenly, after 30-40 minutes of "Unpacking Setting up." I just heard two system beeps and got an error similar to a kernel panic. The SYSRQs did nothing. Did a hard reboot.I got two kernels in GRUB now. + the GRUB2 chainloading option. Used this one and got Code: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block It's all the same with the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel kernel panic. Using the older kernel didn't fail on the boot up, but showed many UDEV related errors and logging in was impossible - all I get were segmentation faults. Forgot to mention it - my FS is Reiserfs

Debian Installation :: Mouse Not Recognized After Lenny To Squeeze Upgrade

Feb 17, 2011

my mouse wouldn't work in any fashion after going through most of the install process from Debian Lenny to Squeeze (couldn't click, move the mouse, etc. under both Compiz and Metacity). My system is a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 laptop; I keep the touchpad disabled, but the button mouse (TrackPoint) wouldn't work either. I was following the instructions here:

[URL]

So, the first thing I did was run the following commands, as it says to do:

# apt-get upgrade
# apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686
# apt-get install udev

Then, I rebooted my machine into the new kernel (2.6.32-5-686). I got a ton of udev warning messages at startup (all along the lines of "SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in something-or-other" - details can be provided if needed), but got a functioning prompt. I logged in, ran startx, and everything worked except the mouse, which couldn't do anything - as if it wasn't recognized at all. Switching window managers from Compiz to Metacity, as mentioned before, didn't help. "modprobe psmouse" revealed that that module was correctly loaded.

Rebooting into my old backported kernel (2.6.32-bpo.3-686) restored mouse function, although I still had the udev warning messages (so maybe those aren't relevant, I don't know). Apparently, something about the different kernels is causing the problem, but I'm not sure what - any thoughts? I haven't wanted to complete the upgrade with "apt-get dist-upgrade" without knowing that I'll have a working mouse, since I need a functional GUI at the moment and don't have a good way of fixing it if I trash it.

Debian Installation :: Upgrade To Squeeze From Lenny / No Icons Or Toolbar

Jul 30, 2011

I have a server that was happily running Lenny. Last reboot was over 100 days ago. So I decided to fix it and install Squeeze.the upgrade went well, booted into grub. (with the grub2 test menus).When I login using the console, I get the nice GUI login, and something looks like the graphics world is being setup. The screen goes to a pretty light blue background. But there are no icons, no toolbars, no windows.I could believe something in the Xconfig is broken, say it thinks I have a much larger screen, and all the icons are off the edges. But that is only a guess.

Debian Installation :: Current Status Of Lenny / Squeeze Upgrade Process?

Apr 17, 2010

I'm starting to bump into crusty software in Lenny and am looking to upgrade to Squeeze. However, there's no release notes yet and Googling for upgrade directions yields all kinds of variations, some of which talk about "interesting" issue. Thus, my questions:

1. How hard/messy is the Lenny to Squeeze upgrade at this time?
2. Where can I find straightforward, clear directions on how to upgrade?

For quite some time, I just stayed on testing and incrementally upgraded on a regular basis, but stopped after Lenny came out because security support was suspended. Now I'd like to climb back on that train.FWIW, I originally installed Slink in 1999 and haven't reinstalled from scratch since, despite several generations of hardware upgrades.

Debian :: Lenny Vs Squeeze?

Feb 13, 2011

Now that the stable version of Squeeze is available, the newbie that I am is asking himself this almost existential question: should I get Squeeze or stick to Lenny?Some arguments in favors of Lenny that are coming into his mind are that there is more material, tutorials, in brief, more resources to find as to learn and solve problems.

But is this true and if yes, is it a reason?What about security?There is also this widespread saying that tells to always get the last release for performance and security reasons.Being in this position where I obviously don't have a lot of knowledge and experience to judge myself with all the elements, assessing thoroughly all the differents factors, I would have like to listen you opinion(s) on it.

Debian :: Using A Lenny Package In Squeeze?

Jul 5, 2010

I am currently running Debian Lenny on one of my external HDDs and Debian Squeeze on the other one. I found a package I like in lenny but it seems it has not been added to squeeze (yet). The package is ksirc and i like it because it looks and feels like mIRC that I used in windows. My question is can I install the lenny version on squeeze with out it having an adverse effect? My other question is what do I put into the /etc/apt/sources.list to do this? i now see that ksirc is also available in a sid (unstable) version. Is it safe to install this one to my squeeze distro? and again what do I need to add to my sources.list to do this?

Or could I just download the deb package and install it using dpkg? New to this and just looking for the best way to get a favorite software package.

Debian :: Lenny Or Squeeze With Ati Card

Mar 31, 2010

I have Ati HD 4890 card and I need to get it working with game and 3d-software. Which Debian should I choose to get those ati proprietary drivers to work as stable and easily? Can I get them working all the time with Squeeze/Unstable or should I use Lenny for that? If they work with all of them, I'd like to take Squeeze (or is unstable as stable? name doesn't say that at least). So which one I should choose? Can a newbie get fglrx to work on Squeeze?

Debian :: Lenny Package In Squeeze

Mar 20, 2011

I need libnet0 on a squeeze installation, so I can compile nemesis, which unfortunately has not been an active project. It depends on libnet0, which is not in the squeeze repository.I can compile nemesis, but will it ok to do this the same way with the libnet0 library? Or should I manipulate the /etc/sources.list to be able to install it from the lenny repositories? (this doesn't sound right...Better get the sources? And what happens when I compile it? Can I safely have libnet0 and libnet1 on the same installation?

Debian :: Installing Squeeze/Lenny With WINE?

As I know, this is like asking for the impossible, I am posting here to have some opinions about the use of Wine in Debian. In particular, I would like to know whether wine makes Debian less secure and more vulnerable to viral, malware, adware, etc infections.

Debian :: No Sound In Squeeze / Lenny Chroot

Jul 16, 2010

I recently reinstalled Debian. Previously I had sound working in schroot without a problem. I simply added the user to the audio group ran alsaconf and it worked.Alsaconf has been removed from squeeze so I tried from Lenny. Alsaconf installs but does not find the sound card in the schroot. In deed it seems to be looking for amd64 modules (those of the host system).
