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 Installation :: Can't Boot Into Newest Kernel After Upgrades

May 14, 2011

this is a new problem with issues that started when I upgraded to 10.10. Originally, GRUB wouldn't load after that upgrade, but that was fixed here. Once GRUB was working properly, there was a problem with the 2.6.35-28 generic kernel. When I tried to boot through it, I would only get an ubuntu command line.

Luckily the older 2.6.32-22 generic kernel worked just fine and I could log in and load my ubuntu desktop with no issues. I decided to upgrade to 11.04 to see if that would correct whatever was going on. The installation was completed without any apparent issues, GRUB works, XP Pro works, and the older 2.6.32-22 generic kernel allows me to boot into 11.04.

Unfortunately, another new kernel, 2.6.38-8 generic, is not working properly. I snaped some pictures of what happens when I try to use this kernel:


The first is GRUB/ The selection The second is the loading graphic The third is a command line where it freezes (note: this is not the same command line screen/environment that I was referring to with the 10.10 new kernel)

Ubuntu Installation :: Running A Patch Every Time A Kernel Upgrades?

Jul 13, 2011

This morning I ran the automatic upgrade provided on the repositories, updating my kernel from 2.6.38-8 to 2.6.38-10.Unfortunately, upon reboot I discovered that a series of patches I'd applied in order to get my wireless card on my desktop working had been undone (see I had to run a modified version of the instruction set in order to get my wireless back on.My question: is there a way to trigger this every time the kernel upgrades? I'd hate to have to run this cumbersome set of commands manually every time.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Doesn't Detect Kernel After Security Upgrades

Feb 10, 2010

I have just suscribed into this forum. I have a problem: my notebook (NOTEBOOK SATELLITE L300-SP5917A - INTEL CORE 2 DUO T6400 (2.00 GHZ - 2 MB L2 - 800MHZ FSB) - 15.4 WIDESCREEN TRUBRITE TFT LCD - 400 GB SATA 2 .5 5400 RPM - 3GB PC2-6400 DDR2) doesn't boot ubuntu after the last security upgrade. I have wubi installed.I have Windows Vista and Ubuntu in the boot menu. I select "Ubuntu" and that leads me to the GRUB shell. I'm new in linux. It seems that GRUB doesn't detect the kernel. Maybe the file menu.lst has been deleted, or something similar, but I can't make my ubuntu to boot.

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.

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?

Ubuntu :: UPDATE-GRUB Is Hanging - Preventing Kernel And Other Upgrades

Jun 3, 2010

I have some pending upgrades, one of which includes kernel 2.6.32-22 but whenever the upgrade gets to running the update-grub command, it gets stuck on "Found memtest86+..." Here's the actual output...


It's been hanging like this for hours today, preventing me from getting any of the pending upgrades. I've cancelled it several times, deleted the dpkg lock files and tried it again only to have it hang all over again.

Ubuntu Installation :: 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 :: 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 Installation :: Upgrades Held Back For Weeks ?

Jan 29, 2010

On my 8.04 server installation, I've been getting this message from apt-get upgrade for a few weeks:


I thought this would be fixed with the 8.04.4 release yesterday, but alas, it was not so.

It's bugging me a bit that there are packages that need to be upgraded, but it's not doing it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unattended-upgrades For Non - Security Updates?

May 25, 2010

I've recently installed the unattended-upgrades package on a few Ubuntu 9.04 servers, and it's working great to automatically install security upgrades. However, is there a way to have non-security upgrades automatically installed as well? The README for unattended-upgrades says it'll do security ones only.

My main goal is to have all package upgrades be installed unattended except for kernel and libc upgrades (I want to do those manually on my own time). I guess I could write a script that does 'apt-show-versions -u' to get a list of upgradable packages and then do 'apt-get install' on the packages if their names don't match linux-server, linux-image-server, or libc*, but I was hoping there's an easier way to accomplish this.

I've looked at 'aptitude safe-upgrade -y', but I think that'll install kernel and libc upgrades.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wordpress Plugin Upgrades Failing?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm not certain that my problem is due to an Ubuntu upgrade, but I'm running out of options.My private Wordpress installation was working fine, including being able to upgrade plugins and WP versions within the application. I've been doing all of the Ubuntu updates as I'm notified. I'm still on 9.10, but was planning to upgrade to 10.04 shortly - as soon as I get the Wordpress installation upgraded in fact.

But the plugin upgrades, and the Wordpress upgrades, are both failing with fopen errors, like so:Download failed. Could not open handle for fopen() to [URL]..After checking everything else I can think of (including temporarily making the wordpress directory hierarchy 777), and looking at the php.ini file, I wonder if some Ubuntu update is messing things up. Or if I've somehow changed something else that is causing the problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unattended Upgrades And 3rd Party Repos

Jul 14, 2010

I have searched on the internet but didn't manage to find out how to flag 3rd party repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/50unattended-upgrades. It installs all updates from the stock Ubuntu repos but none from 3rd party repositories I later added (e.g. Chromium PPA, Skype, etc.). I understand I have to manually add the lines but I'm not sure what's the format for this. How to do this? Here's how my 50unattended-upgrades file looks like:

// Automatically upgrade packages from these (origin, archive) pairs
Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins {
"Ubuntu karmic-security";
"Ubuntu karmic-updates"; };

// List of packages to not update
Unattended-Upgrade::Package-Blacklist {
//"libc6-i686"; };

// Send email to this address for problems or packages upgrades. If empty or unset then no email is sent, make sure that you have a working mail setup on your system. The package 'mailx' must be installed or anything that provides /usr/bin/mail.
//Unattended-Upgrade::Mail "root@localhost";
// Automatically reboot *WITHOUT CONFIRMATION* if a
// the file /var/run/reboot-required is found after the upgrade
//Unattended-Upgrade::Automatic-Reboot "false";

Ubuntu Installation :: DPKG - Error Processing Some Upgrades

Aug 20, 2010

I am running Lucid 32-bit server P3 command line server version that began life as a 9.10-server, now upgraded to 10.04. Upgrade has been running since June, 2010. A few weeks ago, I realized that phpldapadmin was not running correctly. In finding the solution for the phpldapadmin issue, now, upgrades are giving me the following:

admin@myserver:/$ sudo apt-get update[sudo] password for administrator:
Hit [URL]
Get:1 [URL]
Ign [URL]
Ign [URL]

>>>> snip <<<<<
Reading package lists... Done
administrator@wdnserver:/$ sudo apt-get upgrade .....
No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already

Errors were encountered While processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I have read many posts trying to find a reference to
dpkg: error processing grub-pc (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10
because this started with grub-pc being the first and only package that refused to install. I have yet to find a direct reference to 'error exit status 10'. I find many other status codes, but few of 'status 10'.

Now, unfortunately, work took me away for a few of weeks and now I am getting errors for:

I have tried
apt-get -f install
and that does work.

I have tried
apt-get purge grub-pc
and then re-installing grub-pc still gives same error.

And finally there are many other attempts, all with the same result.

I know it is possible to install a Ubuntu Server Edition and later on 'upgrade' it to a desktop edition by doing

Now, is it possible to install the ubuntu-desktop-GUI (so, actually GNOME) without installing all of the unwanted apps Apps I actually need are pulseaudio, transmission and samba, which I prefer to install separately.

Ubuntu Installation :: Any Easy Way To Do Offline Package Upgrades

Mar 13, 2011

Is there any easy way to do offline package upgrades in Ubuntu? I was using debian's repository for the longest time to get individual packages, then found launchpad. Is there a script or something that will tell you what the dependencies are then let you copy them to a thumbdrive or something?

I know online upgrades are great but there are some cases where online isn't an option. Here's an example. Getting wine. There used to be this repository of .debs from the wine website, but now I can't find it. Launchpad has it, but it's all individual files.

Those of you who run Mediatomb know that it's pretty convoluted to get everything "just right".I have located the three Mediatomb packages in Synaptec and marked them as "lock version" in the hope that they will not be up(side)graded to a slightly different version of Mediatomb, which does not have Javascript enabled however, update manager still insists on trying to make the change to the other version .

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 To 11.04 - Upgrades Hangs At Configuring Libc6

May 18, 2011

I can not perform the upgrade. Installing upgrades hangs at configuring libc6 xscreensaver and xlockmore must be restarted before upgrading One or more running instances of xscreensaver or xscreensaver have been detected on this system. Because of incompatible library changes, the upgrade of the GNU libc library will leave you unable to authenticate to these programs. You should arrange for these programs to be restarted or stopped before continuing this upgrade, to avoid locking your users out of their current sessions. I've stopped xscreensaver it is the only session running. I will reboot and stop xscreensaver and then run the upgrade.
