General :: Upgrade A Debian Etch Box To Lenny?

Dec 8, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade a Debian Etch box to Lenny. I've opened /etc/apt/sources.list, did a global replace etch->lenny. Then I did "apt-get update" as root. After some activity, I got the following message:

W; GPG error: http://security.debian.org lenny/updates Release: the following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY xxx And then another error of the same nature for the different, FTP site. Then it said I might to run apt-get update to correct that.

Debian Installation :: Upgrade Sarge To Etch To Lenny?

Mar 29, 2010

<Big Red Flashing Sign that reads, "NEWBIE with two Linux books and very little brain"> I just installed Sarge from a CD onto an old PC and ended up with Debian Linux 3.1, Kernel 2.4.

PC Specs:
Spacewalker Mainboard (AK31V3.1) SocketA AMD Athlon/Duron Processor based DDR Main Board
2x 256MG DDR DIM Q
350w power supply
NVIDIA GeForce AGP8X 6200 Graphics Card 256 MB RAM
Award Modular Bios v6.00PG 12/05/2003
LG Monitor
USB Mouse, Standard keyboard

I did not configure any servers or do any package selections but did manage to get the internet connection working (actually Debian managed that all by itself). I'd like to "upgrade" to Lenny.

Do I need to upgrade to Etch first or can I go straight to Lenny? At what point do I "upgrade" the kernel (before upgrading to Etch/Lenny? After?)

Debian Installation :: Etch To Lenny Libc Upgrade?

Apr 2, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade an etch system to lenny, I've updated my sources list to lenny and ran apt-get update. When I try apt-get install apt

apt-get install apt I get the following:

Reading package lists. Done Building dependency tree. Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.  apt: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.7-1) but 2.3.6.ds1-13etch10+b1 is to be installed Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.2.1) but it is not going to be installed E: Broken packages

if I try apt-get install apt libc6, it wants to upgrade a whole heap of packages - will this be a safe thing to do ?

Debian :: Upgrade From Sarge To Lenny (via Etch) Has Broken Cron?

Sep 20, 2010

I've been upgrading a bunch of our servers from sarge to etch and then to lenny, on two of these servers, cron has broken, cronjobs will not run. On another two (that have no significant differences from the others) cron is unaffected I created a simple job to run while I was testing

*/1 * * * * root /usr/local/mailtest-1 in the script is echo test mail from busted server | mail -s "test mail from your busted server" [URL]. and that runs fine if I run it manually, I've added it into /etc/crontab and crontab -e but haven't got a single mail from it. The cron service is running

I tried apt-get remove --purge and then a re-install but it doesn't seem to have worked. All the logs have stopped rotating as well so I'm starting to think that maybe it's not a fault with cron but with some other service that it depends on. However, I've not been able to figure out what that might be.

Software :: Etch To Lenny Upgrade - Webmin Fails To Recognize Debian 5

Sep 8, 2010

I have just upgraded my Debian 4.0 box to Debian 5.0. The upgrade is ok and the version of debian is 5.0.6.

Webmin, despite all my efforts, is still displaying 4.0 and when I force it to 5.0 manually, it states: "Warning - Your system is actually running Debian Linux version 4.0."

Debian Installation :: Upgrade Etch To Lenny: No Version Bump, Auto-start Services?

Feb 24, 2010

On my debian web server I curently have ImageMagick 6.3.7 08/07/09 Q16 since this is an old version of imagemagick i wanted to upgrade my system that still runs etch, and afterwards upgrade imagemagick. I can not see what version the current lenny imagemagick package has, but I assume it is newer then 6.3.7, no?

When i ugraded I found out that my apt-sources used stable rather than etch. So I already had a mix of lenny and etch I suppose. I then had > cat /etc/debian_version 4.0 Before I upgraded I changed my apt sources from stable to etch, updated the package-tools and did a dist-upgrade (for details, I followed these instructions). After restarting I have still 4.0 as debian version. Also uname -r is 2.6.17. How can I do a correct update?.

Also my services were not started (ftp,ssh, apache2), so I asked my hoster to start the ssh service. This morning everything was up again, but it seems like nobody there have had a look at this. How do I absolutely ensure that my ssh service is start at boot. It is a remote webserver, so I need at least this service to be running.

Debian Configuration :: Xen On Lenny Making Etch Vms?

Mar 16, 2010

Why is my Xen server (An up-to-date Lenny box) making Xen DomUs as Etch boxes? I run a command such as:

[Code]...

This is 100% replicable. I certainly never asked it to create an Etch VM! I cannot find anything in the docs to change this. And for the record, I did let it finish creating it, and it most definitely made an Etch box.

Debian :: Etch / Lenny Package Differences?

Sep 15, 2010

Just to set the scene, I'm not a Linux expert, but am learning the hard way! I have a 6 server cluster that needs upgrading (this includes quite a few of our own packages), and am currently working on a spare server. Lenny is now installed, and my next problem is that libapache-template-perl doesn't seem to exist in Lenny. So, is there a definitive list of 'replacement' packages, if not what can I do about this one.

Debian Multimedia :: Etch>Lenny, Sudo Konqueror No Longer Works?

Feb 2, 2011

Testing an upgrade Etch>Lenny 5.08, and one issue I've found is that "sudo konqueror" in a teminal no longer gives root priveleges, instead konqueror starts with limited rights. It also seems that using a .desktop shortcut, an attempt to run konqueror under any credentials other than the logged-on user fails.

Yet, 'sudo kwrite' works. Anyone met this before, or know why?

Debian Configuration :: Recommended To Upgrade From Etch To Squeeze?

Mar 2, 2011

I am running a server that has Etch on it. I have only recently been given this responsibility as I am the "IT-guy". I am running postifx, squid, shorewall, courier, samba and other things. The network has about 75 users with emails and data. I do not want to do anything that would risk their data and emails getting lost.

Is it still recommended that I upgrade to Lenny and then Squeeze?

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Lenny Freezed After Upgrade ALSA

Jun 18, 2010

I was upgrading manually my ALSA to the latest version -1.0.23-, so after reboot I got several errors related to ALSA telling me that NO SOUND CARDS Found. so the system is freezed when tries to connect to the network but after that, the system is stopped, nothing else happens, I tried to Ctrl+C and reboot as "single user mode" and still nothing, when I rebooted I can see a message that says: "busy trying to mount /" .So my questions are:

1. is there a way to log into the system?
2. is there a way to deactivate this driver on startup?
3. when I can login, how can I remove the failed alsa driver?

if this helps, I have another linux distro running in the same HDD, so maybe I can do something for debian for that distro

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?
