Ubuntu Installation :: Lsb_release Reporting 10.04 On 10.10?
Oct 14, 2010
I just did a fresh install of 10.10. I was running 10.04 but formatted that partition when installing from a USB key. Pre-install, I ran:
sudo dpkg --get-selections > package.selections Post-install, I moved some of my etc files back in. I updated my sources.list. Then I ran
sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.selections
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade
However, lsb_release is reporting 10.04. When I boot the system it doesn't show the typical boot screen but rather "Ubuntu 10.10" and output of what's loading up. On my laptop (upon which 10.10 installed fine), the splash screen shows the dots loading up with the new Ubuntu splash (10.10 style).
I go into Update Manager, and it thinks I need to upgrade to 10.10. Thing is, I'm already on 10.10. My kernel version is 22.214.171.124 and I'm running Gnome 2.32.00 according to the System Monitor. I'm wondering if I'm getting 10.10 updates or 10.04 updates since my system incorrectly thinks I'm on 10.04.
Today morning I logged on to one of our servers (through ssh -X) to perform a routine maintenance. When I tried to open a GUI application, it failed to connect to the X server of the workstation. Eventually I ended up issuing the command
df -h /
and shockingly it showed that / is 100% used. I checked / using
du --max-depth=1 -xh /
to check the sizes of the individual directories, which showed that only about 18% of the / is used and that confused me badly. There was no quick solutions when I googled around; but luckily I found the following link which nicely explained the issue I had:
All I did was found out the services responsible for those unreleased files (using lsof +L1) and restarted them. That is it. Now df reports only 18% of the disk is used and all my X things started working again, thanks to Walker.
i have a vaio, with a nvidia geforce 330m. i upgraded from 10.4 to 10.10, using the same driver i had before (256.44, form the nvidia web site) and following the same instructions i found useful the previous time [URL]. my problem: now my login has no graphic interface: i am displayed this error:
Quote: thermal reporting for required devices not enabled, aborting.
and i can log in and use ubuntu only by command line interface, i tried also to make a clean install using a live cd, but nothing changes. have i to go back and use 10.4?
I had Fedora 13 64 bit before which was correctly reporting memory as 4GB. After I wiped off Fedora 13 and did a fresh install of Fedora 15 32 bit, the memory is reported as 3.2 GB in the system Info and also in free -mt command code...
Where is 600MB memory gone missing? I checked the BIOS setting and it correctly says total memory is 4GB.
The hardware is exactly same and I did not change anything.
I am attempting to get Debian Lenny 5.0.8 to run on an OpenSolaris snv_134 lx-branded zone. Debian 6.0.0 is a total flop due to the included udev requiring a kernel >= 2.6.26 and the kernel provided by the lx26 brand being only 2.6.18.So I installed Debian 5.0.8 into a VirtualBox VM, configured it, then tarred up the install with the following command as root, from /:
tar -cjf /mnt/share/debian-5.0.8.tar.bz2 --exclude dev --exclude sys --exclude mnt --exclude proc *
I then installed that archive into a solaris zone, booted it, and had to run
perl -pi -e "s,1 1,1 0," /etc/fstab
in order to fix up the fstab. Now it boots (with a handful of warnings), but the problem I'm having is that I can't run apt. I get:
E: Couldn't determine free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/ - statvfs (75 Value too large for defined data type)
I have a system set up with Fedora 9 - the Fed10 installer choked on an older Intel video chip. I've decided to try updating to 10 in anticipation of further upgrading to 11. Reading this forum and elsewhere convinced me to try preupgrade. I started it and saw Fed10 as an available upgrade path, selected it. At that point, the system appeared to freeze -- the progress bar got about 10% along and everything sat for 10-15minutes. I exited out of preupgrade and tried the rpm path.
That didn't fly either -- I was told that there were no packages marked for upgrade. I read more about preupgrade, including the fact that it might give the appearance of having locked up although it was still working. So I went back to preupgrade. This time, Fed10 didn't show in the selection box. It was, in fact, empty except when I checked the box for beta/unstable and could see Rawhide.
How do I get back to where I was with preupgrade so that I can finish what I started? Alternatively, how can I do a 9 to 10 upgrade from this point (preupgrade grayed out and rpm reporting no packages)? I expect to further upgrade to 11 in a couple of months, so the step to 10 is necessary. I do not have a separate /home partition and I have some very expensive (and difficult to set up) software that insists on sitting in /usr/local, so a full install, though doable, isn't something I want to undertake -- I'd much prefer to do to upgrades from 9.
Is this seriously the ONLY way to report a bug? I can't just fill out a form somewhere without running software to do it? When I try to do it the way explained in the guide, it tells me that I'm using a stable version of Xubuntu, and that only people running dev versions (like 11.10) can report bugs.This seems absurd. Are they saying that all stable releases are perfect in every way? Surely one must be able to report a bug for them...
230Gb HD, I recently partitioned a 90Gb slice, and ran 10.10 on it for a while, but due to not using it, I fired up gparted off a live disc last night and got rid of the partition. I got Gparted to make a 5gb swap, and the rest for 10.04, all is fine, rebooted to 10.04, updated grub, it removed the entry for 10.10, but reports that my hd is only 140gb, and sda2 is a 5gb swap. What gives? Where's my disc space?
UBUNTU 10.10.This is almost funny but maybe useful: As I am working around my desktops, at times I was getting a sudden changes where shorter screens of my open programs and workspaces appeared. I pressed Esc and all went fine again.Since this was happening frequently I tried to find out what triggers it.I discovered that when I move my mouse pointer over the right bottom corner on my desktop all workspaces will be shown in reduced size in my desktop. When I moved my mouse in the left bottom corner, all open program in the active workspace where shown reduced in size (even the auxiliary pop up toolbars. Esc works fine to return to normal. When I move my mouse over the top right corner then all open programs in the open workspace will get minimized, Esc will not bring them back, you have to click in the task bar. When I move my mouse over the top left corner, unfortunately nothing happens.
This is not exactly an urgent issue, but when I recently checked the amount of file usage on my main drive Ubuntu was claiming that I had used over 128 terabytes of space on a 650 GB drive. I was wondering what could be causing this issue.
I am running Lucid server (for a Moodle install) and have sucessfully mounted a cifs partion that resides on a Win 2008 Server to be used for backup purposes.I fist tried using Webmin to backup files but have subsequently also tried using rsync.Whatever method I try to use to copy files across I am getting an error "No space left on device 28", yet the Windows partition has over 800Gb free. The root partition on my Ubuntu server also has over 25Gb free. I have also checked /tmp and /var/tmp and am unable to find anything that might cause the problem. The Windows share is mounted as follows:
I have a bug in the latest release of Ubuntu wich is stoppping me running update manager, or syn package manager. I cannot run a bug report as it comes back error. Is there a way to run using a command line. My system was fully up to date about a week ago.
I am attempting to install a small rpm that will give command line access to an integrated array controller on my system so that I can add more local disk. When attempting to apply the package I am receiving an error indicating that there is not enough space available on the filesystem. I have expanded the filesystem several times today in order to try and resolve this issue and also moved ~1.5G of files to another filesystem but I am still receiving the error.

I have rebooted the server a couple of times and ran fsck as well.
I am trying to set up SARG to provide reporting from a squid proxy server.After installing Squid & SARG, I am a little confused as to how SARG has configured itself to run.Should this conflict? Or at least create a race condition? In any event SARG and sarg-reports looks like they have not been updated in a few years.is there anything better that offers per-user location reporting?
I am developing/testing a PHP app on my netbook. For some reason apache/php are returning nothing but a "500 internal server error" response when there is a problem with my php script. For example, if there is a semicolon or closing brace missing, it should cause the script to die with a hint about which line caused the script to stop working. Instead it displays nothing but a "500 internal server error" message.
When I install some packages Yum seems to behave correctly until the the very end when it gives the error: xxx-package was supposed to be installed but is not! I am lookng for any advice which might solve the issue. Below is an example of the yum output.

I have configured Nagios in my CentOS machine and is able to receive notificatons/alerts related to hosts and services at defined interval. Now I would like to receive combined reports (for daily downtime, availability of hosts/services) for all hosts and services in one go in the morning. Is there any configuration or setting on Nagios Splash screen.
I have a RH 5.5 server which boots from SAN and i use device mapper multipath driver.all the ports are up(see the multipath -ll output below) and i can see all the device but still when i do the multipath command it gives me this output, im wondering whether this is a lvm.conf configuration issue.
I've done a quick google search and didn't really find anything that I understood. I DID find a reference to the bug on launchpad, but supposedly it was fixed as of version 2.1 and I'm running the latest version I could find which I believe is 2.9 so I'm a bit lost.
Any help would be great, if you need more info, just tell me how to get it and i shall do so as I really am missing gnomenu. If it makes any difference, I'm on ubuntu 11.04 64bit running in classic mode
I have a backup drive formatted ext4 which got filled to no space left, so I deleted some files and folders to make space on it , emptied the trash, files and folders are gone , but it stll says I got no drive space left on it and cant copy a file to it because it thinks its full lol I freed up like 15gb of space on it , have rebooted several times ..
I've tried the bug-reporting tool in Gnome to no avail so far. This isn't a huge problem, more a cosmetic one. I'm running Squeeze beta 2, which was a fresh install. I have a Maxtor USB portable HD, which I use to back up personal data. It auto-mounts fine, as soon as I connect it. I have full read-write access from my regular user account; but when I'm finished accessing it, when I right-click and select "Safely remove" I get an error every time. The error has to do with "unable to unmount . . . ." and I wish I had the exact text but I don't. Anyway, when I open a terminal and check the mount point, the drive *has* unmounted, so I'm not worried about data loss. But why the error? BTW, the drive is formatted as one partition with NTFS.
I'm not looking for an answer so much as I am just trying to see that someone involved in trying to get Squeeze ready to release hears about this. It's no big deal, but it looks bad.
installed squeeze, but top keeps reporting 0.00 most of the time, and def it's wrong cause we have another server same hardware but lenny, and its over 2.00 same load. what can i check or do to fix this? thx
