A friend installed Ubuntu 8.4 for me. I tried to upgrade to the current new version but it will stop at one point and say," Failed to fetch compiz-plugins_0.8.4-0ubuntu15_i386.deb. Hash Sum mismatch" and stop. I can separately download that very same file but it won't do it by itself.
how do I get it to work? I am just a windows user trying to learn to get away from Windows. This has been bothering me for the past ten days and each attempt ends at the same point.
Xubuntu 9.04 installs the drivers for my wireless pci card on my desktop perfectly. Whenever I update to a newer version, the wireless disappears. I would like to use 10.10 but obviously internet is very important.
Can I tell it to keep the same driver? I actually don't really know what the specific driver it is.
Is it possible to upgrade from stock version 2.3 to current 2.32 using YAST? I can see 2.32 when using a browser to look at the repository, but when I enter the repository as a software source in YAST, it does not show up in YAST. What steps am I missing? Can I use YAST, or should I just download the RPMs and go from there by hand?

I was wanting to run a nightly build of firefox. So i downloaded the tar file extracted and ran the firefox script. It went straight to my normal browser. Do you know how to make it go to the 3.7 Nightly without affecting the normal stable Build.
I'm starting to bump into crusty software in Lenny and am looking to upgrade to Squeeze. However, there's no release notes yet and Googling for upgrade directions yields all kinds of variations, some of which talk about "interesting" issue. Thus, my questions:
1. How hard/messy is the Lenny to Squeeze upgrade at this time? 2. Where can I find straightforward, clear directions on how to upgrade?
For quite some time, I just stayed on testing and incrementally upgraded on a regular basis, but stopped after Lenny came out because security support was suspended. Now I'd like to climb back on that train.FWIW, I originally installed Slink in 1999 and haven't reinstalled from scratch since, despite several generations of hardware upgrades.
Does Ubuntu can / support update automatically like Windows Update does ?it is simply because I'd like to standardize my Ubuntu server installation across the datacenter to be exactly the same (latest) rather than having multiple minor version.Or is it possible to script / cronjob upgrade Ubuntu 10.0.4 into 10.10 using apt-get command by checking to the repo

Now, every time I run update manager, it tells me to run a partial upgrade. I can close the window and proceed upgrading packages,but if I let it try the partial upgrade is starts a distribution upgrade !??! I am currently running 11.04.
How can I stop update manager from trying to update my distro version?
I will be version-upgrading a friends (Ubuntu only) laptop very soon. It is 9.04 now and the new version will be (ideally) 10.04.1 The machine has a large unused area on the hard drive and who has known this situation was to use the uncommitted area to do a complete new install of 10.04.1, leaving the 9.04 unchanged (useful insurance). Then, copy, paste (?) the /home directory from the 9.04 into the newly completed installed 10.04.1 overwriting the installed directory.
Opinions seem to support the notion that such a paste into 10.04.1 is likely to be successful and trouble free as long as the 10.04.1 installing username is the same as the 9.04 username with same privilege level. I would be grateful for comments here, particularly with any details, gotchas, you can see.

Just a reminder, Firefox 3.0 will reach End of Life status with the upcoming release of Firefox 3.0.19. This may concern you if you are still on Jaunty (like me). You may want to search the forum on how to add the repository for a current version of Firefox or Opera. Anybody who knows what Canonical will do in such a situation if a critical bug shows up after Firefox 3.0 will no longer be supported, but Jaunty still is supported?
I have Ubuntu Server 10.04 Lucid (LTS) installed on my server (EC2 instance). I'd like to install Memcached on it. When I type "sudo apt-get install memcached" I get version 1.4.2-1ubuntu3 installed.
I know there's a newer version 1.4.5 and looking at [URL]..I found it's available in the newer version of Ubuntu (Maverick). Question: is it possible to get the newer version 1.4.5 using apt-get on my current server?
