Fedora Installation :: F14 Upgrade Went Very Clean?

Nov 2, 2010

I upgraded from F13 to F14 Final i386 off the i386 DVD this AM and just wanted to say the upgrade went very smooth and I've yet to come across any issues. I have nvidia video but I do not use nvidia 3rd party drivers so I cannot say how an upgrade with those drivers would go.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Vs Clean-sheet Install

Feb 4, 2010

I'm currently using Ubuntu Jaunty, and am considering upgrading to Karmic. Is there any advantage to backing up my data and clean-sheet installing a newer version, or is the upgrade path through the update manager sufficient? Would a clean install carry less baggage coding-wise?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Do Partial Clean Install Rather Than Upgrade

Apr 14, 2010

I have a compaq nx7010. It started out with 8.04 or perhaps 8.10. I upgraded it through to 9.04 when that became available. I have not upgraded to 9.10 year, because I recall it took me a fair amount of time to get my system working correctly after the 9.04 upgrade. At a guess, audio went down, wifi broke, and that sort of thing. I am now finding that apps I use are not releasing new versions compatible with 9.04. And I see 10.04 is on its way, and I understand it is best to go from one upgrade to the next rather than jump a release.

Here's my question:
I get the impression it is cleaner and more stable to do a clean install as opposed to an upgrade. I've also seen many people expressing that view. I've always just gone with upgrading because I didn't like the thought of having to set my whole computer up the way I like it, again. Is there a way to do a clean install that will keep my system the way I like it? For instance, to not have to reconfigure every application?

I have my partitions set up like this:
ext3 /home
ext3 /
linuxswap

Just how much config related stuff is stored in the /home folder? Or is this purely user files? What is the consensus? Is it better to upgrade or to do a clean install? My intention is to have a stable system that does not require hours of my time to get sound and wifi working, with the latest release on it (so that I can run the latest apps).

Ubuntu Installation :: Did Not Do Upgrade Just Requested Clean Install

Dec 7, 2010

I have tried to do a clean install of 10.10 on a system that previously had 9.4 on it. Did not do an upgrade just requested a clean install of UBUNTU. Install proceeds to create user name/password page then just stops. Install line below says ready when you are but I do not get a forward to come up on the screen, it just sits there. I have used different hard drives and a different cdrom drive and 2 different installation disks and it does the same thing.

Fedora :: Yum Is Broken - Clean Up Packages After An Upgrade ?

Jun 13, 2010

I was trying to clean up packages after an upgrade and I broke yum.

There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

Ubuntu Installation :: Difference Between Installing 9.10 With Upgrade To 10.4 And Clean 10.4 Install

Apr 4, 2010

1. I want to revert back to Ubuntu (I currently am running Dual Slackware/Vista). However, given that at the end of this month 10.4 will be out, is there much advantage to installing 9.10 now and upgrading later?

2. Another way to ask this might be: Suppose you already had 9.10 (which many of you do), and suppose you also have a safe /home (so that in a fresh install you wont loose /home), what is the advantage of a fresh install as compared to Upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Upgrade Vs Clean Install Regarding Development Tools

Apr 29, 2010

I currently run 9.10 and have / and /home mounted on different partitions. From what I understand, I can do a fresh install of 10.04 on / while preserving my settings on /home. What about the development tools? I currently have Apache web server, Tomcat, MySQL, PostgreSQL installed. I presume I will have to reinstall them if I do a fresh install right? So if I want to preserve these dev tools as they are I should only do an upgrade from the update manager? Are there any major advantages to a clean install over an upgrade?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Home After Clean Upgrade?

Oct 25, 2010

I used to use Ubuntu 9.10 for a year. I had my home path on different partition (19Gb) than the system partition (12Gb). Before I upgraded, the free space on Home partition (19Gb) was 6.3Gb. I knew that the direct upgrade is not good, so, I format the system partition (12Gb). Then, I install clean version of Ubuntu 10.04 on it. every thing is great. except that, I can not find my files in the old home path. In same time, Ubuntu is telling me that the Home partition (19Gb) (which I have not touch at all) has free space of 6.3Gb and used space of 11.3Gb. It means it can recognize that there is something but it can not open it at all.

system information:

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
Gnome 2.30.2
2.6.32-25-generic

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade Needs More Space / App That Results From Sudo Apt-get Clean?

Jan 27, 2011

forgive me for raising a common problem again, but I cannot find a fix in the other threads.
I am trying to catch up on upgrades. Step 1 is to get up to 9.10 from 9.04
Doing so however I am being told I don't have enough disk space
I present have my 35-odd GB HDD partitioned:
6GB for Ubuntu
28 for Data
and 1. or so for swap

evidently I underestimated my Ubuntu partition.

what can I do now?

I have run Computer Janitor (is that the application that results from Sudo apt-get clean? I did that but couldn't figure out how to "clean"?)

I have Gparted installed but I don't see how to use the Move/Resize option.

Fedora Installation :: Why 13 Clean Installation Ends Up To Lots Of Fc12 Packages

Jun 1, 2010

I did a clean install of fedora 13 on my sys, however when i run

Code:

rpm -qa |grep fc12

lots of and lots of fc12 packages pop up. below is the list. if there is fc13 version of these packages, and if there is (which I suspect for at least some of them there should be) why my sys doesn't update to those packages?

here is the list of fc12 packages:

Code:

~$ rpm -qa |grep fc12
ctan-cm-lgc-fonts-common-0.5-17.fc12.noarch
plexus-compiler-1.5.2-4.3.fc12.noarch
texlive-texmf-errata-fonts-2007-7.fc12.noarch

Installation :: Clean Install Fedora 11 From USB?

Jan 7, 2010

The Fedora Core 8 which has been preloaded is certainly not up to scratch as all I want the laptop for is to play MP4 and AVI files. I have looked over all the threads on how to load fedora 11 (recommended version), and have gone to the Fedora site to download the files (32-bit was also recommended - running a i686 Intel Atom).

1. My issue is do I download the files onto CD/DVD, then copy those straight onto a USB and boot from there, or can I find another way to get it directly onto a USB stick without having to waste a CD/DVD?

2. There is also mention of a clean install and partitions across quite a few threads but I can't see how to do these and in what order, and are they necessary?

p.s there is no CD/DVD player on this machine so it can only be loaded from USB.

Fedora Installation :: Clean Up Failed Preupgrade?

Dec 16, 2009

I got the /boot is to small error when I tried the preupgrade from FC 11 to 12. I would like to clean out all the installation files and try again with the recommended fixes. Preupgrade just reboots the box no and restarts FC11 up so I need to start over fresh.

Where are all the files that I need to clean up for the preupgrade?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Seem To Get OS To Load For Clean Install

Apr 8, 2010

So, I currently have Ubuntu on my laptop and would like to install F12 instead.I burned a copy of the F12 .iso and set my BIOS to boot from CDROM drive, but Ubuntu continues to load and I can't seem to get the OS to load for a clean install (from the .iso, even after extraction).Unfortunatly, the BIOS will not let me boot from USB otherwise I would try that.Any ideas on what might get this off the ground?

Fedora Installation :: Live CD Or DVD For Clean Install?

Oct 21, 2010

For the last two releases I've used pre-upgrade ( F11>F12>F13 ). While F13 is working OK it's showing one or two minor glitches, such as the odd hang and sometimes part of the Gnome taskbar doesn't load. I realise these may be just F13 issues, but in case they're due to accumulated errors in two updates I'm planning to back up and do a clean install of F14 - once the feeding frenzy has died down.

The question, as posed in the title, is whether to D/L the full DVD or install from a live CD and add the apps I need. For instance, I don't need to network with my other computers - data transfer is by ' sneakernet ' with a pen drive - and I'm sure there's quite a bit else I can live without which the standard DVD install will contain, such as chat. Conversely, I'll be installing some extras such as Google Earth using AutoX.So basically, will installing from a live CD be any real benefit or will I just be making work fro myself? I frequently notice updates which don't seem to have much to do with the apps I use regularly, but they may contain essential dependencies.

Fedora Installation :: F12 Clean Install Stopped - Kernel Panics

Jan 4, 2010

F12 Clean Install stopped with line:
[<c04041a7>] kernel_ thread_helper+0x7/0x10
The machine has completed more than 30 hours of HD cleaning with DBAN (overwrites the HD). It used to be able to run F9 or Ubuntu 8.04 but always returned kernel panic during other distro installation attempts. Why after a complete HD clean though?

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Or Clean Install?

Apr 25, 2011

I have 10.10 Desktop right now.. and was considering the 11.04 beta 2 upgrade. However, when 11.04 comes out.. first.. will I be able to update to 11.04 final from 11.04 beta (if so is that automatic.. or do I need to do clean install)? Second, will the 11.04 beta 2 upgrade.. as well as the 11.04 final release.. remove/replace old 10.10 stuff.. or is an upgrade going to leave a lot of stuff around and thus a clean install is the best way to go?

I have a lot of stuff.. bookmarks, tools, data, etc on my linux box.. and while I do have a 2nd drive that I can move stuff to, if the upgrade path is as clean (or almost as clean) as a clean install, I am fine with that. I recall from Windows upgrades, there is generally a lot of remnants left behind that can slow things down or just sit around taking up space for no good reason. So I want to avoid anything like that if possible.

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade :: Work Around "dirty File Systems" On Clean Disk?

Jul 2, 2011

After preupgrade downloads install media and reboots to start install, I get a dirty file systems error on /dev/sda2, my / partition.I fsck'd sda1,2,3,4,5,6 (all clean) and rebooted, ran preupgrade again and got same error. No other disks are mounted other than internal SSD.wtf is going on here? ;-)More importantly how does one get around this error? Only half-solution I have found on the net for this problem is to set allowDirty=1 in upgrade.py and recreate install.img. Have no preupgraded before so don't want to take any more risks than necessary.Thanks for any workarounds....---------- Post added at 03:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:31 AM ----------Anyone have ideas here? I'd like to avoid yum upgrading as that looks to entail more pain.Why on earth does Anaconda see my /dev/sda2 on "/" as dirty when fsck reports it as clean

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Installation Asking For Username/psasword?

Jan 14, 2010

Newb here and this is my first time installing Ubuntu. Created the LiveCD from download of ISO 9.10. PC is a Dell D505 laptop with a clean reformatted, defragged HD. Install goes ok up until first screen with a background and the software asks me to login using a username and password. I haven't been asked to set up a u/p up until this point so I'm stuck. ENTER doesn't work, root/root doesn't work. I've downloaded other ISO files, reburned etc and its the same each time.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Install On Clean HDD

I have filled in all the details but the "FORWARD" button is grayed out. Also, the progress bar eventually stops altogether. Is the system hanging, or is the install just slow?

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install Of 11.04 Next To Win 7

Jun 15, 2011

So I've been trying to install 11.04 x64 on the same drive as Windows 7. The install seemed to go fine until it tried to install grub over the Windows 7 bootloader. My first try at this, I just told it to try again, and it seemed to install fine. It then rebooted and came up with the grub bootloader as expected. However, when it attempted to boot into 11.04, it gives me an error that says "unknown filesystem". It does however boot into Windows 7 fine. While I was writing this up, I went into my BIOS to make sure that my SSD was set to be the primary boot drive and it was not. Changed the SSD to primary boot priority and away it went.

For some reason, with the my other hard drive as the primary boot drive, it wouldn't boot to Ubuntu, but would behave just fine when going into Windows. Very strange behavior. I rebooted the computer again to make sure that the boot priorities fixed the problem and the default background came up halfway, like a corrupted .jpg file, so I forced a shutdown. Now I'm back to what I started with. I've been rebooting to see if I can reproduce the good startup, but to no avail. Also, when grub is loaded, it either gives me a purple or black background. Is this normal? It seems to alternate randomly.

TL;DR
I get one of three errors when trying to boot into 11.04 from a clean install next to a fresh Windows 7 install.
"error: unknown filesystem"
"error: hd1 out of disk"
"error: you need to load the kernel first"
I also see a kernel panic every now and again.

I've got a bootable flash drive with 11.04 on it and that's what I've been trying to install from. I've been looking more into this issue, and from what I've uncovered in the forums is that the new grub bootloader that comes with Natty has some issues. I found the procedure for a downgrade of grub to the Maverick version, but I have not come across a 64-bit procedure. This downgrade has worked from what I've read so far.

Fedora Installation :: 10 Upgrade / Installation Failing On Presario F700 Laptop

May 29, 2009

I've tried to upgrade my FC8 on Presario F700 series laptop to FC 10 and facing some issues. I've a live CD (i386). Initially i tried upgrading FC 8 to FC 10 and installation was stuck around 30% completion saying its unable to fins libdbi-0.8.3-1.fc9.i386.rpm. Then I tried to install FC 10 from scratch as system went to inconsistent state and faced two issues with two different setup options -

1) when i selected necessary software to be installed for office use and development, it failed after installing 20% saying libgnomeui-devel-2.24.0-2.fc10.i386.rpm

2) i then opted for for software to be installed for office use (default option) then it failed after installing around 50% saying libXrandr-1.2.3-1.fc10.i386.rpm

im trying to understand if this is a problem due to my laptop configuration (AMD Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core) or due to issue with the live CD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partition Your HD On A Clean Install ?

Jan 7, 2010

I made an upgrade from Kubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 and this upgrade generated a series of permission problems.

Considering that I have an individual /home partition, I am planning to make a clean install of Karmic (9.10) on a laptop with a 230GB hard disk and 2GB RAM.

The actual hard disk is mounted the following way:

In total there are some 230GB of Hard Disk available.

The fat 32 partition was not a good idea, because I can't access it from the file manager, so I will dump this partition on my next installation.

Now my question: What partitions would you recommend to mount and what size would you give to each partition?
