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

Apr 2, 2010

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?

Feb 22, 2009

i'm having issues with looking for extra softwares to install... YUM can only see already installed softwares, i can't see any extra...

Ubuntu Installation :: List Explicitly Installed Packages?

Feb 19, 2010

I wounder how I should do to find out what packages I have explicitly installed on the system, NOT including the dependencies. The purpose is to get a figure of what packages I need to install when I reinstall my system.In Gentoo one can look at the world-file (/var/lib/portage/world) which is a list of my explicitly installed packages, not including system packages (located in /var/lib/portage/system)

Ubuntu Installation :: Clone Using Installed And Deinstalled Packages

Apr 2, 2010

I was curious if there is any way to clone my system by simply writing into a file which packages are installed AND deinstalled on the source system.

The reason is that I configured a system which fits me just right (I installed some additional packages and removed some standard packages like OpenOffice...) and was wanting to back it up - even for a newer Ubuntu-Version.

Most of the changes are already gone in /var/log/dpkg.log... so this option does not exist...Does anyone know where Synaptic stores the information which package is installed and which is not? It is possible to view those packages by applying a filter.

Installation :: Get A List Of Installed Packages From Non-booting Ubuntu?

Apr 8, 2010

I'm reinstalling an ubuntu machine that does not boot anymore. I have a complete backup of all the files that were on the harddrive.

I would like to make a list of all the programs that were installed, so I can re-install them on the fresh install.

I've found the following procedure, but this method requires that the machine still boots. (and my machine does not boot anymore) code...

Is it possible to get a list of installed packages from the backup of an ubuntu machine?
PS, My appologies for my English, I'm dutch

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade - What Packages Are Installed By Default

May 25, 2010

Since I had problems with Openoffice since the upgrade to 9.10, I've tried to uninstall all openoffice. I've searched for 'openoffice' in synaptic and uninstalled all thet I've found. It has uninstalled many other things, thunderbird, firefox and god only knows what other. Now, there is a way to know what are the packages installed by default? Or, to install all the dafault packages? Or, there is a log of what I've uninstalled?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Packages That Are Newer Than Those In Upgrade?

Nov 13, 2010

After upgrading from one version of Ubuntu to another, what happens to packages that have been installed prior to the upgrade that have higher version numbers (are newer) than the ones that are supposed to be installed via the Ubuntu upgrade?Specifically, I'm referring to compiling the latest version of FreeType to try to alleviate some dependency issues related to compiling Wine (I need a custom Wine patch), and I was wondering what would happen if I had a newer version of FreeType installed if I then later upgraded from Lucid to Maverick, and if Maverick used an older version of FreeType by default than the one already installed on my system.

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?

I would like to get the output from 'yum list installed' from a standard CentOS 5.1 32bit installation on a Intel desktop PC. I would like to do a diff with my 'yum list installed' to figure out exactly what my company customized. I know the docs here have the list of added, deleted and updated packages going from 5.0 to 5.1, but is there a complete 'yum list installed' list somewhere?

Fedora Installation :: No Kernel Packages Were Installed

Jun 20, 2009

I am installing to an empty hard drive (that for some reason is shown as /dev/sde - I don't know if it is related, but seems weird - why is it not sda, and moreover, not hda - it is an ide drive), and install goes through fine, but in the end it says "no kernel packages were installed, your grub configuration will not be changed", and the only option is to reboot. After rebooting, I get thrown into grub command prompt, and have no idea what to do there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Manually Installed Flag On Packages

Jan 5, 2010

After updating to Karmic, Synaptic shows almost all of my installed packages in the category "Installed (manual)", including about half of the packages that belong to a clean Ubuntu installation (e.g. apparmor, apt and hundreds of others). As a result, I can't easily get a list of those packages that I did indeed install manually and may want to remove. Is there a way of removing the "Installed (manual)" flag from all packages?

If I could do this, all packages that do not belong to the core Ubuntu system should show up as "Installed (auto removable)" and I could individually mark only those as manually installed that I really still need and let apt/synaptic uninstall everything else. I know that with today's hard disks, disk usage of installed packages is not an issue. But those packages accumulate over time and need to be updated with every security update and every ubuntu dist-upgrade, wasting time and bandwidth.

Ubuntu Installation :: Search For Installed PPA Packages That Are Not In Stock Repository?

Dec 19, 2010

I had some major bugs with KDE 4.3 and 4.4 and the only way that I could fix them was to install the entire KDE 4.5. This was mid-Summer. Now I would like to upgrade to Maverick the proper way and have 4.5 in a stock repo.

I managed to get most of kde back to stock by luck and uninstall/reinstalling kdebase stuff and kubuntu-desktop a couple of times. A pain in the neck trying to find important packages that are already installed from a previous PPA.
BTW my sources.list is stock right now.

Does anyone know of a way to search for installed PPA packages that are not in the stock repository?

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating An ISO And Reinstalling - Transfer The Software And Packages That's Already Installed

Feb 25, 2010

I want to transfer the software and packages that's already installed. I have an ISO disc creator to take the current information on my hard disk and format it for an ISO, which I can burn onto a DVD, but what I'm wondering is, how would I go about reinstalling the OS

here's the backstory, I'm wanting to transfer the hard drive from this computer to the one I'm going to custom build once it's finished, and I'm pretty sure I would have to reinstall due to the fact that I would have to reconfigure and install new hardware drivers. If I'm wrong, please tell me so I don't waste the time and go through the trouble of this

my plan is to create an ISO of my hard disk, then backup all of my personal files, then remove them so the ISO will have more room (and I may get rid of some unnecessary packages), then get rid of everything on the hard drive (just use a livedisc of something and use a partition manager to delete all partitions on the hard drive) then move the hard drive over to the new computer, and reinstall with the ISO disc I created

the things that will be staying the same is the graphics card, some peripherals (like monitors, keyboard, wacom tablet, printer, etc...) but the motherboard has a different sound card and a different processor (I'll probably just install a different kernel to accommodate for that) and some different things that are smaller (don't forget the power supply)

offer a better method of transferring the hard drive (and don't say "just simply take the hard drive out and put it in the other computer" unless you have indisputable proof that it will work. I know it most likely won't work for multiple reasons, the drivers being one of them, the fact that windows can't do that (I have a different plan for windows that involves upgrading from vista 32bit to windows 7 64 bit))

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Of Server / There Are 320 Packages Manually Installed

Jun 3, 2011

I want to some how get a list of the packages I installed. I was hoping that I could just list all of the packages that were not installed automatically as a dependency. It turns out that there are 320 packages that match that description (I think). Is there a way to do what I want to do? Shouldn't all of these dependencies have been installed as a handful of meta-packages instead?

Fedora Installation :: Too Many Installed Packages In Text Mode Install?

Jan 23, 2009

On some computers I can not use graphical installation interface of Fedora 9. So I use text mode.I would like to have a very small installation with very few installed packages, so at package selection I uncheck everything. In text mode installation there is no option to customize installed packages down to package names. I can only check main themes.So I uncheck everything and installation starts. This method results over 400 packages to bo installed... This is too much with many unnecessary packages.If I use graphical interface and uncheck every package name at custom package selection then about 150 packages will be installed.Is there any good way to use textmode installation and don't install more than 400 packages?

Fedora Installation :: Recompile In 9 If The Packages Installed Through Yum Install Command?

Mar 6, 2009

Currently i am using mapserver 5.0.3 , AGG 2.5-6 on fedora 9. I need some help with mapserver and AGG support. I am trying to use AGG/PNG outformat in the mapfile as well as i added precisely. When i call the link through browser i recieved the following error:

loadOutputFormat(): General error message. OUTPUTFORMAT clause references driver AGG/PNG, but this driver isn't configured. It is clearly evident that from the error, the driver is not configured. since all the mapserver version 5 suppotrs AGG rendering backend, so i checked whether mapserver supports AGG or not.

[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$ mapserv -v
[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$

I found that my mapserver doesn't support AGG means SUPPORTS = AGG is missing in the above output. But i have already installed AGG in my system. In order to clear this issue i gone through many threads in forums, but i was not satisfied with the answers. Atlast i came to know that, i have to recompile the mapserver with AGG. The following link gives you some idea about compiling mapserver with AGG in linux [URL] But the problem now i am facing is i have installed both the mapserver and AGG through YUM INSTALL command so i dont know how to recompile mapserver with AGG support. I think, there will be no configuration file normally when installing through Yum insatll command.
