Fedora Installation :: Keep A Local Install - Current Will All The Latest Releases?

Sep 27, 2010

Is there any way to keep a local install of Fedora current will all the latest releases? example If I'm running F13, is there a failsafe method to have F13 become F14 with out all the drama of reformatting and installing off the dvd? In the past all my attempts have failed, possibily due to having multiple repos is use and kernel patches applied (nvidia central).

Fedora :: RPM That Can Install Somewhere Which Won't Overwrite Current 3.5 Installation?

Jan 21, 2010

It looks like firefox 3.6 was released today - fantastic, except for those of us who develop/test websites (yeah, usually FF is pretty stable between versions, but still...). I'd like to be able to install 3.6 under F12 alongside my current FF 3.5 , running under separate profiles (preferably with a 64-bit build). Is my only option to download it from mozilla.org, and just install it under /opt/ or somesuch place? Is there an RPM that I can install somewhere which won't overwrite my current 3.5 installation?

Ubuntu Installation :: Are There Different Karmic 9.10 Releases

Sep 7, 2010

How do I install a specific one? Or better yet, revert back to an earlier release.

I have two systems running.
2.6.31-22-generic #60-Ubuntu aphrodite release
2.6.31-22-generic #63-Ubuntu amaterasu release

I googled the #60 and #63 and it listed release names highlighted above, is this correct?

If it is, how can I install the aphrodite release?

I have one system working great (#60), while the other exhibits problems playing back 1080p video files (#63). The only HW difference that could affect the dropping frames is the 8200/8300 Nvidia chipsets (with the 8200 working perfectly) and then of course the Karmic releases. I have re-installed the system and files twice and even upgraded new releases of Nvidia drivers (195 > 256) with no success.

My next step is to try and install the same exact release of Karmic if indeed there is a difference between #60 and #63.

My next step might be to use clonezilla and clone the OS (Root) and try that. But then the chipsets for sound are different as well as the ehternet chipset. But that shouldn't impair the video.

Fedora :: How Do Releases Map To Kernels

Jan 14, 2010

My MythTV system is running under F12. It is in "appliance mode;" all configured and happily doing the PVR thing without a pressing need for upgrades.However, there is a feature in the upcoming 2.6.32 kernel that I'd like to take advantage of; internal support for a certain capture card.

I see 2.6.32 mentioned as part of the F13 release. My question is, will it also be available for F12 . . . maybe sooner than the F13 release?Another way to put this is: How wedded are Fx releases and kernel releases? Is a major kernel goalpost like 2.6.32 the reason why Fx releases are made?

Ubuntu Installation :: Does Kernel Get Patched Between Releases?

Ubuntu Installation :: Possible To Create An ISO Install File/CD From Snapshot Of Current Working Install?

Sep 25, 2010

I have an apparently stable installation of Xubuntu that I've hand-tweaked in a few ways. I'd like to be able to reinstall this system verbatim on this machine should a disk crash happen, etc.Is there a "standard" method to create an install and/or total-backup CD that would be an instantiation of the currently-installed-and-modified system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck On 9.10 - System Freezes On Last 3 Releases

May 11, 2011

I have been a happy Ubuntu user for several years. But I am stuck with version 9.10 because of a persistent problem with random lockups with both mouse and keyboard. A search on the forums both within and without the Ubuntu community shows that a lot of other people have this same problem. There have been a lot of suggestions given and I have tried everything I could find, but without success. I have tried clean installs of vs. 10.04, 10.10, and 11.04 but all have the same problem.

The computer will work fine for a few minutes to a few hours and then just lock up. The only way out is a hard reset. Someone suggested that the latest versions of Ubuntu have a problem with some of the newer Intel chipsets, but I don't know enough to be able to say one way or the other. I am running an ASUS P7P55D motherboard with a 4 core Intel i5 processor and an Nvidia graphics card. I have tried the latest version of the bios for the P7P55D but that hasn't helped either. Vs 9.10 is no longer supported and I am being left behind.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Seem To Install Latest Release Over 5.04

Feb 26, 2010

I downloaded the latest release, burned a disk and successfully booted. When it comes time to choose a partition I don't have the option of replacing the old release. I can install in parallel leaving both but can't use the whole disk. Interestingly enough I CAN replace the windows installation. Of course I already have Grub installed but I don't see how this would affect installing. I read the article here [URL] and it seems I may have missed a step. However it's implied I will lose the current Grub installation. Is that the case?

Fedora :: Repository Configuration For Older Releases

May 10, 2009

June 12, 2011. It appears that quite a few of the alternative repositories that I've suggested in the posts below are no longer functional. Rather than flog a dead horse I'm closing this thread and strongly suggest that you use a supported release of Fedora.The Fedora releases here, Fedora Core 1 through Fedora 12, are no longer supported or maintained, so they do not receive bug fixes or security updates. We do not recommend using these releases any more. I've spent the last day or so installing every Fedora release since Fedora Core 1, excluding Fedora 11, on a computer I had laying around. My goal was to figure out how to get yum to work despite the fact that the stock repositories are long gone in most cases.

I was motivated by the fact that the yum questions are never ending here at Fedora Forum and the question of how to make yum work for these older versions of Fedora seem to be quite common. The usual response is to install the newest and greatest Fedora. That's fine, but there are cases where this is just not possible. I'll outline separately what I've done for each release. You will only get one update, however, you should be able to install any software that is available through these repositories. You could consider adding other repositories if you need additional software.

Fedora :: Diffrence Between The 32bit And The 64bit Releases?

Jan 16, 2010

I've been using the 64bit version of fedora since release 10. I want to know what exactly makes the diffrence between the 32bit and the 64bit releases. I am having some troubles recently regarding some drivers and other issues in my fedora 12 and I was thinking of moving to the 32bit one,

here are my PC's specs:

CPU C2D Intel 2.6
NVidia 8500GT
Nvidia 9500GT

I've managed to use the 32bit apps by installing the 32bit compatibility packages.

Fedora :: OS Drive Not Releases Freed Disk Space?

Oct 31, 2009

I have been having mysterious problems with my comp recently and I think it might have to do with my OS not releasing filespace. Previously, my OS partition was full, then I deleted/moved some files, but now it says that still no space is available:

[root@cluster log]# df -h (simplified):
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 7.9G 7.6G 0 100% /
/dev/md0 459G 110G 327G 26% /export
[root@cluster log]#

The OS being /dev/sda1 (I am 99% sure, didn't set it up originally) and is CentOS4. As you can see, I have only used 7.6GB, and I should have 300MB available. Only thing I can think of is that when it was full, I moved matlab from there to the /export drive and added in a symbolic link to where it was on the OS drive so it would still work ok. Could this be why the space is not being freed up? We are in the process of installing a 16TB drive so we can free up some space or expand the partition, but somebody else here at work is handling that, so some other option that I could do would be best.
