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?

Fedora Installation :: Failing Installing Development Tools?

Mar 12, 2009

I installed Fedora 10 on an 8 GB USB-stick using the creator-software for windows. Sadly I am not so familiar with linux but as I am now trying Fedora on a friend's advice I really start to like it

Unfortunatels there ist a problem: I wanted to compile a driver for my wlan-card but got the known error "make: command not found". So I searched this forum and found in this thread that I need to install the development tools. But when I try to do so by typing yum groupinstall "Development Tools" it first starts but then cancels with an error message claiming missing dependencies to a perl package:

Quote:

Fehler: Fehlende Abh�ngigkeit: perl = 4:5.10.0-49.fc10 wird ben�tigt von Paket 1erl-Pod-Escapes-1.04-49.fc10.i386 (installed)

Due to my ignorance I tried yum install perl but this also fails with the same error message I am sure it is just a bite for you but I don't hava a clue right now By the way I already can call the command make install now for the wlan-card driver. It also starts but fails and says:

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.

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.

General :: Win7 - Tools Required For Web Development Project

Jan 16, 2011

I wanted to design a project in linux which could contain programming languages(C, perl, PHP, HTML, XML etc) basically a web based project. Why I have chosen to build on Linux is because it is Open Source, and lot many things can be automated through scripting languages, which in windows I don't know. So, I have installed linux on a virtual machine(Host-Windows 2007 & Guest Linux CentOS), CentOS(command line interface). Since I am a beginner, so I want to know what all tools can be used to facilitate and ease my development process. Some which I know are listed below:

1) Using Putty so that can access the Linux machine from anywhere within the network.
2) Since I want to develop on Linux, but want to use windows as developing platform. So have downloaded Eclipse Editor (C/PHP) on windows. But want to know how can I access linux files from here?
3) Installed Samba, and still trying to figure out how can I access linux files remotely on Windows.
4) How can I ease my development process and what all tools I can use..??

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 :: F14 Upgrade Went Very Clean?

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.

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.

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Clean Install Of 9.10?

Feb 8, 2010

few months back I did a clean install of 9.10 from 9.04 (wanted to clear room so decided against upgrade path) and since then I've been really struggling to boot into it. I've used Ubuntu since 7.04 and never had any issues with it - these issues have only started happening since my upgrade to 9.10. And I was hoping that 9.10 would be the release I could persuade her indoors to not boot into Windows XP!

Anyway my problem is that when I choose Ubuntu 9.10 from the boot list it gets to the point where the Ubuntu symbol is splashed up (with the brown background and the light shining on it) and then the little progress bar underneath freezes and the whole box freezes. It doesn't respond to any keypresses like the "magic" ones and I have mashed CTRL ALT F1 plus others keys repeatedly. Caps lock doesn't respond either so looks like completely frozen, though worth noting that the hard drive still sounds like it's spinning.

I've tried with every boot command under the sun (noapci, nosplash, quiet, noapic etc.) and none of them make any difference bar two - apci=noirq starts the desktop occasionally but with no windows manager, and irqpoll stops the freeze but it never loads the desktop or manager. Both these last two commands work about 1 in 10 boots or so but usually it freezes. I can also sometimes press Escape as soon as the Ubuntu symbol shows on screen and sometimes (about 1 in 5 tries) it gets into the desktop, but only if I hit it before it freezes up. The above does point to an IRQ issue but wondering what has changed since 8.10 and 9.04 which worked perfectly?

I've also booted into recovery mode and updated/fixed packages but the same thing happens with the recent 2.6.31-19 generic as well as -17, -14 etc. As per above I'm dual booting with Windows XP as the default boot option (wife's orders) but don't think this is related.

Ubuntu Installation :: Need A Clean Install For Upgrading To 10.4

Mar 19, 2010

I'm a relatively new user of Linux, I use Kubuntu 9.10, and I would like to know whether I need to make a clean install for upgrading to 10.4 (I know, stable isn't ready yet, but I'm impatient , and I want to prepare in advance) or I could do it in some way without losing everything I have installed? Or maybe it would be better to only upgrade to the newest version of KDE (I'm using 4.3.2 now)? Which one is easier and/or better? How is it done (Note: using KDE)?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 OS Freezes After Clean Install

May 2, 2010

I just did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04, my PC was running 9.10 and 9.04 before, no problems. No problems on install (received some: end-request: i/o error, dev sr0, ....errors but as far as I know this doesn't mean anything but Cd Rom door open). When I started Ubuntu everything runs ok, (even audio that didn't worked on 9.04 ..finally)

After 1 or to minutes PC just freezed, everytime I restarted same thing. Tried using liveCD, id does crash anyway. I downloaded another ISO using bittorrent, installed, same result. When I open the Computer Monitor I see the System Memory scale up to 100%, then it alternates between processor 1 and 2, it goes to 100% then to about 9 and the other processor goes to 100 one at a time.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 64 Clean Install Will Not Boot?

Jun 23, 2011

I was having some troubles installing windows 7 (install hang with no solution) and decided Ubuntu might be a decent route to install windows, or maybe I'd be satisfied and stay with Ubuntu. Downloaded the official version of 11.04 AMD64, burnt the iso to DVD using windows, and went through the installation process (Having already formatted the drive), only to find that once I removed the installation media, as prompted, I was greeted with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. There were no errors during the installation and I can boot using the liveCD no problem. I am installing this on a 2.8ghz i7 processor, 8GB of DDR3, and installing it on a 120GB SSD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Won't Boot New Clean Install

Feb 24, 2010

A friend of mine asked me to install ubuntu on his system as he finally got enough of all the flaws and problems in his vista. I said no problems ill have ubuntu up and running in no time! Well this is 2 days later and still nothing, he's computer refuses to boot from cd, i been changing the boot sequence allot but no indications of it wanting to boot the cd at all, whatever i try. So i made a bootable ubuntu usb-stick, doesnt work everytime i boot but sometimes... i get the load-up-screen, select install ubuntu, go ahead with the install, everything goes like clockwork. "restart is needed" sure, i restart it. grub says something like cant boot, or nothing to boot on hdd.. and thats that. ive reinstalled it several times (10+), trying ext2,ext3,ext4, partitioning it diffrently, ive tried it all. i even took out the scsi hdd, and tried an old ide-drive i had, gave me the exact same error..

i dont have all the specs but ill write what i know:

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install While /home Is In Its Own Partition

Mar 1, 2010

I guess it's time to move up to Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04 ...unless you would advise me to stay with 9.04. Either way, I would like to do a clean install. I managed to create a separate partition for /home almost a year ago ... now the only thing I want to keep inside /home is one big folder which I already had made a backup copy with several DVDs (larger than 4GB). Besides that large folder, I would like to start everything new. This would be my second time installing and it has been quite awhile. Here are my questions:

1. I know I have backup DVDs in hand. But sometimes DVDs are funky. I would restore my files with DVDs as last resort. So, should I just delete all files and folders (including hidden ones) under /home except a large folder that I would like to keep? If so, can I do that while on a normal gnome session or am I better off doing it while on Live CD?

2. I see a suggestion that when installing Ubuntu, I need to make sure to mount /home but NOT FORMAT IT. Is there a visual tutorial or step-by-step guide showing how to do this?

3. Are there other gotchas like I need to "create" user name the exact same spelling as old user name that is already created under /home on my harddrive?
