Ubuntu :: Transferring Saved Emails On Evolution To New Computer

Aug 25, 2010

I'm a new Linux user and i've only dabbled in terminal, but it's been serving me well. Unfortunately when i added my hotmail address to evolution it deleted all the emails from the actual hotmail website and saved them somewhere to my hard drive.

At the time i didn't care but know i've got a new laptop and i'm getting rid of the old one(with the emails on it).

So my question is, how can i transfer the emails to my new laptop or back to hotmail? The new laptop has windows 7 and i was planning on putting ubuntu on one of these days.

Ubuntu Installation :: Where Are Driver And Machine Configurations Saved On Computer

Jun 20, 2010

Where are Driver & Machine Confirgurations Saved Ccomputer?

I just started using Ubuntu over the last several months and almost have it setup the way I need and want. I understand that a new version comes out every 6months or so and plan on upgrading when it comes out. I would like to be able to reformat and install the latest version, but retain all of my preferences, programs, device drivers, etc. so that it's all ready for the new version of Ubuntu. Up to date, I have spent so much time changing setting, finding drivers that fit and installing them that I don't want to start over with this.

How can I do this? I have made a seperate partition for /home. Will this help or is this folder only for to save my personal files?

I'm building a new backup server, migrating from Centos to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and upgrading to Bacula 5 all at the same time.Is there a way to find out why there's a 3 month lag? 5.0.2 was released in April, and the currently available packages are 5.0.1.Also how can I find the policy on future updates ? I'd really like to use the core-provided packages but don't want to end up way behind after a year or two.

Ubuntu :: Use Apt-get Or Aptitude To Tell Me What Updated Packages Are Available

May 25, 2011

How do I use apt-get or aptitude to tell me what updated packages are available for my system? I'm moving over from Gentoo where I had a cron job that would run a command whose output was a list of available updates. I had this and other system related info emailed to me. I'd like to duplicate that under Ubuntu, but I can't find a way get the available updates.

Slackware :: Keep 3rd Party Packages Updated?

Feb 27, 2011

I am using SBOpkg, but for the ~30 3rd party packages I have most of the slackbuilds are already out of date, and I don't expect they will be updated when security issues or whatever arise.

So is the only solution to subscribe to the individual mailing list for each piece of software, or is there a more automatic way?

Fedora :: Old Fc12 Packages Still On Updated Machine?

Jul 15, 2010

I did my update back when F13 was first out. A lot of the F12 packages are still on the machine. Should I be concerned. My latest thing was dealing with the Kmod-Nvidia packages left behind from F12. Someone suggested removing them and once I did my updater did its job perfectly.

So, the question is do I need to remove all the F12 packages or should I wait until there is another conflict? Secondly, if I should remove them, is it a search and destroy mission or can I simply nuke them all in one grouping?

Slackware :: Updated The Packages Installed Via Sbopkg?

Jul 18, 2011

I am really enjoying recently slackware. Using slackpkg and sbopkg it is so easy to keep slackware running current. Sometimes I feel like a master of Linux, which is absolutely no true. Apart of some objectives I have regarding slackware's philosophy, I have this question please. I have about 8 packages installed via sbopkg. my question.

1)Is there a way to keep these packages updated via a program? (If not I guess I am obliged to check manually for each of them.) 2) Also, sometimes when we build a package via sbopkg it is necessary to build other packages. Is there an option to install via sbopkg and the package and its dependencies required through just one command?

Ubuntu Installation :: Packages Marked As Updated Actually Not Installed

May 8, 2011

I did a clean install of 11.04 this morning. Upon logging in, Update Manager appeared, telling me there were 67 packages to upgrade. I obliged, and the update progress window appeared, as usual. At this point I realized it was not a convenient time to install the updates. No progress had yet been made; Update Manager had not downloaded anything, the progress bar had not moved, and the status was "waiting". I canceled the update and closed Update manager. However, upon running it again, it thinks that it successfully installed all the packages. In the "Ubuntu Software Center" Update history, it shows all those packages as having been updated with a timestamp of when I canceled the update. Apt-get and aptitude will not update the packages either. It seems like the packages have been marked as updated even though no update was installed. How can I rectify this problem and get the package managers to actually install the updates?

Fedora Installation :: Update Media's Repo Information To Reflect Some Of Updated Packages

May 13, 2011

I am creating custom install media using the Fedora Core 14 DVD as a base and I have gathered all of the packages and their dependencies I require using the yumdownloader command.I made sure to download the @core group along with the ones listed above. The problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to update the media's repo information to reflect some of the updated packages I have downloaded. So when I go to install on the device, it's saying it can't read/open a certain package and you can see that it's looking for an older version because I'm guessing its repo is telling anaconda that this is the specific version to look for. I'm looking for a way to "update" the repo found on the installation media.

Debian :: Find Some "last Updated" Info For Packages, Changlelogs

Feb 4, 2010

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?

CentOS 5 :: Get Centos To Recognize Updated Packages?

Jun 24, 2009

I have a copy of the DVD Iso for centos 5.3. I downloaded the updated packages to the Centos directory and then ran the repomanage perl script to remove the old files from the directory. I then ran the createrepo and the new iso image with the script code below.

rm -f CentOS_1.0.0.iso
echo "Updating repository"
dvd_discinfo=`head -1 $rhelBuild/.discinfo`
echo "$dvd_discinfo


I am using VMWare to test the build, so I have the cd pointing to the iso image. I get the CentOS to start up find and dandy asking the questions for the interactive boot. It gets thru the stage of checking dependencies and then when it starts to copy down the image to the "harddrive" that is when the problem occurs.

One of the updated files is file-4.17-15.el5_3.1.i386.rpm (file-4.17-15.el5.i386.rpm was removed using repomanage), but the loader is looking for the removed file. I've looked thru any dependencies, but nothing specific for the removed file, all are asking for /usr/bin/file with no specific version numbers. I have run a rpm -test on all the rpms, but haven't been able to look thru that to see if there is a specific request for the version.

I did try this, but it just moved on to the next file. I did not replace the file version, but then it found another problem that was the same as this, the updated file is in the repo, but it is requesting the old version. I looked thru the fileslist and others to see if maybe that was the problem, but they were updated to the new versions.

Fedora Installation :: Packages From Other Computer?

Jul 28, 2009

The same as Fedora, Mandriva Linux is rpm-based too, in most case they have similar package collection, but I've found some packages in Mandriva that are not included to "standard" Fedora Everything + RPMFusion + Linva repos. But there is no any kind of repo with Mandriva Packages for Fedora to be used with yum.

Yes, I know that I could try to install necessary rpms using rpm command, but this way I have manually download them and resolve dependences, it's very hard for many reasons. Also this way I could not easily group them and find similar packages by description. Is there any kind of repo with Mandriva (Suse and so on) packages for Fedora?

Ubuntu :: Download Packages For Update From Another Computer?

Jul 17, 2010

My internet connection is one where I have to pay according to the amount of data transferred and Ubuntu updates require large downloads. I was wondering if there was some way to export the list of packages required for an update in ubuntu and then go and download them from another PC. (The other PC in question will be running windows).I'd love to know of any apps that can do this ..If there aren't any can someone tell me if there is a way to do this? I am just getting used to Linux but I still have no experience at all with writing shell scripts (which I suppose would be needed for this sort of thing).

So in summary, this is what I want. Synaptic (or any other package manager in Linux) should generate a file with all the packages that should be downloaded. A program on the PC with a better internet connection then interprets this file and downloads the packages creating a local copy of the packages. These local copies are then transferred to the Linux box which required the updates and the updates are applied..

Slackware :: Transferring Slackbuild Packages To Other Computer

I just finished building the monodevelop package(including the dependencies). I have other computer that have the same version of slackware(ver 13.0) and I would like to install the packages I build from one computer into other computer.

My question is can I just install all the packages without regards to the order of dependencies (remember, it is already a package) or should I install the package in order? I also ask this for me to know what to do when my new laptop arrive. I would like to install all the SlackBuild packages i have on this computer and I would like to minimize, if not, eliminate the need to build the packages I have already build.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Rebooted While Updating Packages

May 22, 2010

I recently had to rebuild my computer with a new HDD and decided to load the new Ubuntu 10.04 which seems to work great. I was in the middle of downloading packages from the Ubuntu Software Center when the computer decided to reboot in the middle of downloading 6 packages. I went to the Synaptic Package Manager and it said to run "sudo dpkg --configure -a Here is what I got when I did that. What do I do next to fix and continue downloading the corrupted packages?
