Just did apt-get update then apt-get upgrade then apt-get install linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic fdutils linux-doc linux-tools Now at: Linux 2.6.32-31-generic on an x86_64. But upon console login after rebooting into the new kernal:
Why would Ubuntu insist there are so many updates available when neither apt-get nor synaptic seem to find anything to upgrade???
I have a system that will not boot as /usr has been destroyed and I would like to get a list of installed packages before re-installing. I know that it's possible to get this using dpkg or apt, but I cannot run those.
Where in the filesystem is this information stored and what's the best way to get a list of installed apps from the files?
I have just installed Debian Lenny and was trying to upgrade the installed packages from the packages.debian.org site. when i asked synaptic to add the downloaded packages the would not appear, but when i checked the .xsessions file there are entries saying that the packages were being ingnored because they were either different versions, the MD5 did not match or even "can't find pkg". i have to use the local library to download the packages because i dont have an internet connection at home.
Currently our Production Server version is Fedora8. I know its very old version, i was newly joined as server admin for this company.. my first task need to Upgrade Server with all updated packages and patches..Without production time down..because we have nearly 400 clients accessing our server.
1. Is it possible to do Without Production loss??
2. before upgrade what are the things i need to do??
3. is there any possibles the working function not working in new upgrade packages??
I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.4 and the installation/upgrade worked just perfect. I than followed the instructions in the "New User How To/FAQ", "Multimedia and restricted format" post. I was following the instruction in the 11.4 section. I added the additional repositories as explained. I then was on the section where it talks about going into software management and selecting the "Packman" repository and clicking to "switch systems packages" to the versions in this repository (packman). I than click this link and the "warning" screen appears and I am present with conflict resolution after conflict resolution dialog. It just seems that there are some many conflicts, it just seems wrong and I canceled.
The installation/upgrade appears to have worked just fine. My mail is there, audio and dvd play back worked the first try after the upgrade. I am not clear if this is what I should expect or their is something wrong or if I even need to complete this step for a successfully installation.
where does all the updated packages get saved in my computer in which I have installed Ubuntu 9.10? its really hard to download all those large files in slower Internet connection and the backups are unknown.please help me if i can save those downloaded packages in other devices.
I came to a "weird" situation when I saw in yum log files that several centOS systems have been automatically updated via yum. I checked the following: 1. chkconfig for init services that could upgrade the system: only yum-updatesd 2. In the config file of yum-updatesd.conf the do_update function is set to no. 3. If an updated made manually by a user ..no. Where else should I look or how this update happened?
I notice that on DistroWatch, the descriptions include "debian based", "arch based", etc. For the newbie, is there any practical difference between the different bases, or is it a Coke vs Pepsi type question?
Is a distro based on Debian say, easier for a newbie to learn or work with than say one that is FreeBSD based?
How do you list only installed packages that were not installed automatically? I see in aptitude that it will list whether they were installed automatically or not, but it is hard to find them because the are a lot more installed automatically than non-automatically.
I fruitlessly tried to understand the mechanism of package clean in Debian. There are two types of packages: the one that are essential for user and dependencies of these packages. How could I found where the list of essential packages is kept in Debian? (in Gentoo it is called world-file) dkpg -l shows me the list of all packages installed.
I have realized that in not installing suggested packages I've missed out on a ton of doc files, which would really come in handy while I'm away from internet access.
Is there a way take a list of currently installed packages and find out which of them have doc packages available? Possibly install them in a single step? I have been playing around with aptitude and apt-rdepends, but I'm not quite sure how to go about this. Somehow take a list of installed packages, run it through an apt-cache search, and end up with a list of -doc packages to install? My bash-fu isn't the greatest, and I suppose this could be a bad idea to begin with.
I'm a fresh user of Debian 6 64 Bit. I'm trying to install wine on it to run bluestacks. URL... but when I use the following command, it can't seem to fetch some files/packages. I have these as my sources list at the moment.
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
I have a fresh Debian install, since this install was on a desktop, I had an internet connection and didn't notice (it was late, I was half asleep) I opted to download a whole load of packages I didn't really need. I thought all was doomed until I remembered that I have done another Debian install but a week ago on a laptop, which has a nice clean install without all the bloat.
So I ran dpkg --get-selections > selections and had it sent to my new desktop installation.
Now if I run dpkg --set-selections < selections followed by dselect-upgrade nothing happens. I assume this is because the smaller list contains all the packages 'to be installed' which already are, and all the missing packages are not being purged. Do I need to explicitly add all the packages I want to purge to the 'selection' list or is there a better way of doing it?
I have a dead system that was running Debian Linux (lenny). I can boot into emergency mode, but nothing else. I will likely have to reinstall Debian. I've read lots of things online about how to get a list of currently installed packages. Which is fine and dandy if the system is working and I can log into it. I'm basically wanting to extract such a list from a hard drive containing an installation I can't log into normally. I can access the filesystem just fine, and nothing related to aptitude has been damaged.
I'm wondering if there's a way to verify the integrity of installed packages/programs against official repos. I did an update via synaptic about a week ago and it asked me to upgrade several packages such as login, su, passwd, groupadd, useradd, lastlog, and several others. Right away I was concerned about this, but I figured it's via synaptic, must be safe. Well now it's a week later and I'm trying to find some "last updated" info for these packages, changlelogs, whatever, to verify that they were indeed official releases/updates, and I'm coming up empty.
Is there something I can do to verify that these files and my system are still intact?
Does anyone have any experience with the Atom processor line? How do they compare single core to single core, dual core to dual core with other Intel and Amd chips? Do they work well with linux, or are there hardware issues?
OS: RHEL / CentOS If I use "yum" to add / erase packages, OS will log the info to file /var/log/yum.log.
But if use "rpm -e" to remove a package, there is no related log file to show which rpm package got earsed. I have to run "rpm -qa > /tmp/$TIME", and then diff the /tmp/$TIME file to get the difference.
Is there is command to show the erased packages (erased by using rpm -e)?
