Ubuntu Installation :: Update Still Wants Alpha CD

Oct 20, 2010

Few months ago I thought I would test the alpha release, so I downloaded the file and burned the .iso to CD. I had problems with the installation, so I cancelled it half-way through, and continued to use 10.04, which worked fine. Now, whenever I try to update/upgrade the system, it keeps asking me to insert the old CD, which I no longer have.

For example, if I try to
sudo apt-get update
it seems to work fine, until it stalls with the message:
Media Change: Please insert the disc labelled
'Ubuntu 10.10 _Maverick Meerkat_ - Alpha i386 (20100925)'
in the drive /cdrom/ and press enter

Apart from this recurring problem, I think I have have now successfully upgraded to 10.10. I realize that it's probably my own fault (or is it -- shouldn't 10.10 realise that I am way beyond the alpha release now?)

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From Alpha To Alpha / Beta?

Feb 26, 2010

I upgraded Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx, Alpha 2. Now I want to upgrade to Alpha 3, and eventually to BetaX. When I enter the command updata-manager -d, the system says that I am up-to-date. Is there a direct way to upgrade to the latest Alpha, or do I need to download the .iso, build a CD, and do an install from that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Downgrade From 11.04 Alpha To 10.10?

Mar 12, 2011

how/if I can downgrade my dual-boot partition (win-7/11.04) to 10.10 without having to reformat the entire disk?

Can I use the same partition I installed the alpha 11.04 on to install 10.10 and save myself a lot of work?

Is it possible to simply reformat the Ubuntu Linux partition and re-install 10.10 there while preserving my Windows 7 installation?

Can I keep the newer GRUB boot loader for 11.04 (I like it better), or will I be forced to downgrade that as well?

I just tried the alpha, and I can't use it. It's still too green, so I want to go back to 10.10 the easiest way possible, so I'd need a little detail on the process of using the advanced partition features (if this is even possible).

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 - Bootloader - FAKERAID

Jan 19, 2010

I continue to have issues installing any of the newer version of Ubuntu on my ICH9 FAKERAID. I read that the GRUB2 issue with FAKERAID was solved shortly after Karmic was released. Did this somehow not get added to the Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 of Lucid? I would love to have Ubuntu installed on my main rig, but I do not want to fuss around with it forever...

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded Karmic To Lucid Alpha 3?

Mar 16, 2010

I just upgraded Ubuntu Karmic to Lucid alpha 3. It works fine except for a few things that can be expected in an alpha version. Anyway, I would like to know if it would be better to upgrade to the final release of Lucid or if I should do a clean install. I don't mind losing my files and settings because there is nothing important on my laptop, but it would be nice not to.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install (10.04 And 10.10 Alpha) LVM Boot?

Jun 19, 2010

Today I decided to replace my 9.04 install with 10.04. (I did this on a separate hard disk.) As I am a big fan of LVM I used the 'Alternate' install CD. Everything installed fine.

However, upon booting I observed two things: firstly there was no grub menu. No countdown timer, no menu. Just a flickering cursor. After 15 seconds or so I got a message telling me that:

/dev/mapper/bromine-root (My root partition.) does not exist and that it had given up waiting. Finding this kind of strange I tried the alpha of 10.10 --- same again. Hence I have two questions: firstly, where did the nice grub menu go; secondly, what is wrong with LVM and grub these days? At the initframfs prompt I am thrown to there are some LVM utilities and they appear to show my volumes.

Switching back to my old pair of hard disks and everything works as expected (i.e, the hardware is fine and supported by Linux.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty Alpha 1 Console Text Corruption?

Jan 17, 2011

fixing a text corruption issue / advice for filing a bug report (if necessary). So, generally speaking the stability I am experiencing with Natty is as I expect; I'm fully aware that this is a very very early development release and so all sorts of things can go wrong. I just wanted to point that out So while Gnome/Unity are up and running, graphics run more or less perfectly, the boot process text is completely garbled and if after everything is fully loaded I hit Control+Alt+F1-F6 the text looks like:

* this
* the above image close-up

The above links are supposed to be of the ubuntu login prompt. The problem occurred after running the upgrade command:


sudo do-release-upgrade -d

As is standard upgrade procedure. Is there anything obvious going on that I can tweak to make it all happy again? Since I have a working GUI.

Ubuntu :: LibreOffice Regex - Replace [:alpha:]$

Jun 20, 2011

My friend lost her dissertation and she had only a pdf copy of it. I am trying to convert the pdf into an odt format. After copy-pasting the content into an odt, i need to replace all paragraph breaks which are not following a dot with a space. For which i thought of using the regular expression feature of Libre Office. I've not succeeded so far.

I tried: to replace [:alpha:]$ or [a-z]$ or [a-z]>$ with space, but none of them worked. Finding [a-z] seems to work, finding [a-z]> too. So did finding $ (end of paragraph) but if i combine any regex with $ then it doesn't find anything.

Ubuntu :: Cleaning Up Residual Alpha/beta Crap

Apr 28, 2011

I've been using Natty since alpha, and along the way several thing became broken. I would like to get my system to be as stable as if I did a clean install, but without haveing to do all the work it would take, to get everything back the way I want it. Is there a way to clean up all the leftover obsolete files and bad configurations, created by buggy beta builds?

Ubuntu / Apple :: UEFI Notebook, Installed 11.04 Alpha 3, Can't Boot?

Mar 7, 2011

Ok so I have a UEFI compatible notebook. I managed to take the natty-desktop-amd64 (the latest Alpha, 3 in this case), throw it on a SD card, and started the grub2 bootloader via UEFI.

Ubuntu installed just fine, the only problem is, there is no selection in my UEFI bootloader for Ubuntu. I can access my newly installed Ubuntu partition only via the "Try Ubuntu Before Installing" option on my SD card. So is there anyway I could create a boot entry?

Ubuntu Networking :: Alpha 2W Disconnects - Can't Connect To Any Network In Range

Jun 22, 2011

Working on ubuntu 10.04 on an IBM Thinkpad X61 laptop with an Alpha 2W wireless usb card on wlan0. Once in a while the wireless network disconnects and can't connect to any network in range (open, wep, wpa, wpa2). It looks like it's trying to connect but then asks for a password (even if allready given one) and if open just not finishing connecting and trying to connect to another network. Happends the same with wicd. Network card is working ok. Also with other computers. Drivers are installed correctly and power consumption management is off.

General :: Crosstool From X86 To Alpha Lacks Detailed Debug Information?

Apr 7, 2010

I have a working build of crosstool - it was built for gcc 3.4.3 using glibc 2.3.5 going from 32-bit x86 linux to 64-bit alpha linux. As far as I can tell -- it compiles correctly (output of alpha emulation matches expected) but it has a major flaw. When I use the cross compiler and attempt to add detailed debug information, it compiles, but does not have the debug information. For example, when I execute:

> /home/leporter/crosstool/gcc-3.4.3-glibc-2.3.5/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc-3.4.3 -g -o hello main.c


> /home/leporter/crosstool/gcc-3.4.3-glibc-2.3.5/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc-3.4.3 -gstabs -o hello main.c

I get a working alpha binary for hello world. BUT - when I run objdump - this is what I get

> /home/leporter/crosstool/gcc-3.4.3-glibc-2.3.5/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu-objdump -g hello

hello: file format elf64-alpha

/home/leporter/crosstool/gcc-3.4.3-glibc-2.3.5/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu-objdump: hello: no recognized debugging information

Frustratingly - if I use my x86 gcc version 3.4.6 to do the compilation (same arguments, just using the x86 compiler, not the cross compiler) - it correctly embeds the debug information.

General :: Cross Compile GNU Make For Alpha Architecture On I686 PC?

Dec 22, 2010

I'm trying to cross compile the GNU make for Alpha Architecture on my i686 PC and the GNU make i compiled would be placed in my virtual hard disk which is a Alpha based linux simulated system. My question is now , I'm able to cross compile the GNU make on my i686 real PC machine , but when i let the make program run in my virtual machine , it pops out the error ..

make: /lib/libc.so.6.1: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by make)

After that, I try another alternative , and I read through the file "INSTALL" on the GNU make directory that I downloaded from the internet . In this case , I downloaded make-3.81. On the sub section "Compiling For Multiple Architectures" It says that

"You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their own directory. To do this, you must use a version of `make' that supports the `VPATH' variable, such as GNU `make'. `cd' to the
directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run the `configure' script.`configure' automatically checks for the
source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'. If you have to use a `make' that does not support the `VPATH'
variable, you have to compile the package for one architecture at a time in the source code directory. After you have installed the
package for one architecture, use `make distclean' before reconfiguring for another architecture." And I do not understand the line "by placing the object files for each architecture in their own directory" . What object files that I should put ?
