Fedora :: Backout Of Last Yum Update?

Oct 15, 2010

easy way to backout of a yum update?

The company I work for blindy does a yum -y update via cron job every night. I am not a fan of this because we would never know if one of the updates caused an issue, but that is how they want it done.

So my question is:

Is there some command or set of commands I can use to immediately backout of the last yum update?

Slackware :: Flaw In Latest Kernel Upgrades?

Sep 22, 2010

Just installed the latest kernel upgrades, rebooted, fired up KDE and got this message: "KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed. Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices? The list of the devices KDE thinks can be removed: Capture: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Digital)"

It then asked, "yes, cancel, manage devices." When I clicked on "manage" it showed Esound as the only device, but it didn't work. So, was something was left out when the packages were compiled?

Slackware :: Upgrades Nuke 13.0 Install - Error While Loading Shared Libraries

Dec 5, 2010

I just did a fresh install of Slackware 13.0 on a Toshiba laptop, and the ONLY thing I did on it after creating a user and switching to init 4 was to run upgrades. After doing so several applications failed to launch, so I rebooted the machine. I get the following error followed by a login prompt:


/bin/sh: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shaed object file: no such file or directory And nobody can log in, including root. I've got another laptop running 13.0 with all the latest upgrades and it runs fine.

Fedora :: Cant Log In After Yum Upgrades

Sep 13, 2009

I was doing a yum upgrade. It went on for like 45 minutes and 560 operations between upgrades/erase and installations. (dont know why erasing)Once all finished, I restarted and simply cant log in any more. It goes all the way to the log in screen, when I type my passwd it tries to load, but comes back to the log in screen. Fedora 11. Is there a way to start the last known good configuration? Reinstalling is the only option?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 And No Kernel Upgrades?

Feb 14, 2010

I have three system on Ubuntu 9.10. Two of them are at kernel level and one seems to be stuck at All three have about the same software sources. The only difference I can see is that the .17 system is on Grub2 and the other are Grub1 systems. I have tried updating via Synaptic but nothing can get the one system to get a kernal upgrade.

The .17 system seems to go through updates of packages but no kernel updates.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Upgrades - Should Accept Them All

Jan 28, 2011

I am using Meerkat w/ the kernel. I am extremely satisfied w/ the direction of Ubuntu and Canonical and am amazed at the focus and dedication of all involved, including the contributors and moderators here.

But I have a question regarding continually upgrading the distribution kernels while awaiting the next iteration (11.04). Is it advisable to upgrade every kernel when my system seems to run well without them? For instance, each kernel upgrade necessitates that I reinstall the NVIDIA driver, among a couple other minor problems. This is not that big a deal, but I would like to avoid it--it's just an irritation when I reboot to a black screen. But another irritation is continually ignoring the update notices.

General :: Can't Boot After Installing Upgrades

Dec 17, 2010

After fighting with Windows for many years I finally decided to try Linux; still so new at it, I am practically still in the package and just picking my way out.

I have a 1.8Ghz AMD and 6HDDs on an ASRock K8Upgrade Board with 1GB of RAM, running XP Pro. Two of the drives are 500GB SATA drives. I installed Ubuntu10.4 on the first SATA drive (two partitons) and until yesterday it worked just fine.

Yesterday I decided to finally use the update manager to update the system and installed 201+MB of upgrades. Somewhere along the way a window popped up showing my HDDs with check-marks beside the 'C' drive and the 2 SATA drives. I was asked if I wanted to install Grub; I take it that is the boot-loader, on all the drives so, I checked all the drives and then read on. Further down I was told that, putting grub on all the drives would make it unreliable so, I unchecked all the drives but the 2 SATA drives.

Now, when I boot up, I get the option to boot into XP or Ubuntu but, when I choose Ubuntu, the machine just gives me a black screen and reboots endlessly. I suspect, by un-checking the 'C' drive in the above mentioned window, I somehow deleted or incapacitated the boot-loader.

I have lots of instances of Grub in various locations, mostly recycle bins but, are they useful and, what do I do with them? Here is one:

#This file is modified at runtime by bootmenu.nsh
set default=0
echo "$(title1)"
echo "$(title2)"
if sleep --verbose --interruptible 5 ; then
set timeout=0

Debian Multimedia :: Secure Desktops And Upgrades ?

Jun 14, 2011

I've been deploying a lot of Debian based OSs for the desktops. I recommend the users to upgrade after every 2 months; however as we all know upgrades have their own flaws and issues, many times an upgrade does cause a lot of problems.

I'm deploying the testing branch of Debian, reason being hardware compatibility issues with older kernel and drivers. My main concern is security, I don't want the users to have big security venerabilities over time which's a consequence of not upgrading, but upgrading too may break the system (partially maybe...).

I know there's an option to only do security upgrades, but this will require a repository refresh... the consequence of not upgrading after a repository update is that if you install software using software center.. or even using aptitude or apt, it's bound to give a lot of dependency issues which users wont like.

This's the second question -- installing new packages with an updated repository and an older system gives issues.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrades Are Available For All Installed Packages?

I searched. I poured over the man pages. No joy. How can one, with a command-line utility, determine: What, if any, upgrades are available for a specific package? What, if any, upgrades are available for all installed packages?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Make Upgrades Correctly

Apr 30, 2010

I want to support Ubuntu, and I want Ubuntu to succeed, but..Each of the recent upgrades has been more painful than the last one, and it seems like the same old problems are persisting. In Koala it was the sound cards, and though I've just started my struggles with the newest release, it is very obvious that the server-load problems are still there. Hey, you Ubuntu people don't have to invent BitTorrent technology, you just need to make it the transparent default.

It seems to me that most of the problem is that Ubuntu's economic model is broken. They need more testing for new features, and the model needs to be funded so that the features which are added are tested thoroughly. I suggest that they need a system where we the users put our money where our mouths are, so to speak. We should be allowed to subscribe to a budget for proposed new features, where those budgets included sufficient testing.

Actually, I used to be a professional programmer, but I don't want to program these days, even to help Ubuntu, because I know just how difficult and stressful it is to do program well. However, I'd be willing to put some money out to help improve Ubuntu--but I also want to know just what I'm buying into.

There are various ways this could be done, but here is a link about one version of charity funding I was thinking of a while back. As it applies here, the Ubuntu foundation would act as the charity brokerage, and we would donate by buying charity shares in proposed features (including MORE testing).

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Server Upgrade: No Upgrades Are Available

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to update an Ubuntu Server install to 10.04. I believe something went wrong when I upgraded it from 8.10 to 9.10 in the past. Currently /etc/apt/sources.list would indicate the system is running 9.10, but /etc/issue says 8.10, as does lsb_release -a.

apt-get update and apt-get upgrade show everything is up to date. When I do a do-release-upgrade it tells me that there are no upgrades available.

Ubuntu Installation :: Frozen During Installing The Upgrades ?

Oct 2, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade from 9.10 to 10.4 on an R51 thinkpad. 9.10 was current and up to date (did that right before the upgrade). All seemed to be going well, but the system appears frozen during "installing the upgrades". At the time of the freeze, it said "about 2 hours 5 minutes remaining" that was ~5.5 hrs ago. The system is locked up, unresponsive. do I force a reboot, and hope for the best? let it sit and assume that it is doing something? The bad thing is that I missed a folder (wife's) in my backup of data prior to upgrade. So getting that back is important.

Ubuntu :: In Kubuntu - What Is Supposed To Notify Of Upgrades

Oct 26, 2010

I've upgraded to Kubuntu 10.10 but there is nothing in my system tray popping up telling me there are packages to upgrade (there are 83 btw!). What should be running?

Ubuntu :: New Swap Area - Installation And Upgrades?

Feb 10, 2011

I need to reinstall Ubuntu, problem is, I don't know if I need a new swap area to replace the old one or just check the old one to be formatted. Or do I just leave it as it is and after installation Ubuntu will make use of it? Couldn't decide if this should go in "Installation & Upgrades" or "General Help" since it's a bit of both.

Ubuntu :: SPM / UM Trying To Remove Important Stuff During Upgrades

Aug 25, 2010

(SYN=Synaptic Package Manager; UM=Update Manager)
Some reason recently the Update Manager has been saying it can only do partial upgrades, then it asks if I want to confirm the things, I look at them, they have a few set to upgrade, it also says it will remove certain packages that pretty much would render my computer useless.

Here's a screenshot of the box I took just a few seconds ago when I went to "Mark All Upgrades" in Synaptic Package Manager. You can see that wanting to remove important things like "ubuntu-desktop" and "network-manager". [URL]

I mean, I would love to upgrade my WebcamStudio etc to check out the newer version, but I'm not gonna upgrade it if I can't even access it! I'm planning on going back and manually checking the ones shown for upgrade after I get done posting this, and seeing if it might be a certain package.

Debian :: Upgrades Killed Dri And Auto-shutoff?

Jan 5, 2010

Back when I was using Sarge, my machine could shut itself off when I halted it. However, I think due to some alleged security issues with my hardware, newer versions of Debian don't allow this. So, I have to manually shut it off after halting the computer. My computer is a Dell Optiplex GX1 PIII450 with 386 MB RAM.

Also, it has a 6MB mach64 video card (01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP 1X/2X (rev 5c)), that, back in the Sarge days, I could enable direct rendering with mach64-20060403-linux.i386 DRI. This no longer works given the changes in Debian. So, no planetpenguin-racer for me any longer.

Besides buying new hardware, is there a way to fix either (or both) of these issues? They both were fine in previous incarnations of Debian, but alas, are now casualties of the upgrades.

General :: Oder Of Booting After Upgrades In Fedora 7?

Jan 18, 2010

I have been using Fedora 7 for over a year on a dual boot system.Boots Fedor 7 and Vista Home Premium. I finally got tired of seeing the New Security update pop up after loading Firefox. So last PM I clicked to download and install the whole list. After this took place and I clicked on update, I rebooted only to see Grub giving me 3 boot selections based on these kernels:the 2007..or original kernel: 2.6.21 -1.3194.fct and a new one -88.fct which came out in 2008 I believe.So my question is: Can I go into Grub and disable or delete the 2007 version and then get back to where I just see 2 choices when grub first comes up and asks for which system you want to boot?
