Ubuntu Installation :: Revert System Back To Pre Updates Without Having To Reinstall?

Mar 19, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 and I have been keeping it updated via update manager.Last night the update manager popped up and I selected to update all required updates without checking what the updates were.While shutting down I noticed that I needed to reboot to complete the update, so I rebooted.After reboot the wireless network card disappeared. So I moved the PC and plugged in the ethernet cable. Oddly sometimes it shows disconnected for no reason and I have to reboot.What's even worst is that Ubuntu now locks up completely within 15 minutes of a reboot.None of the alt+sysrq commands do anything!How do I find out what the updates were and is there any way to I revert my system back to pre updates without having to reinstall?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Plain Gnome Back

Jul 15, 2010

I used synaptic package manager and downloaded E16 (enlightenment)

Then I found out I couldn't get back into gnome without it. It puts its little windows in gnome EVEN when I select session "GNOME" without the -E16 tagged on.

I tried to remove it but that removes all the window borders title and minimize, close, maximize buttons(When I log out and back in)

Then I tried restarting would not boot back into ubuntu until I reinstall E16 in a new created account in root. Its got me trapped and I really do not want to reinstall..

Ubuntu :: Revert 10.10 Font Back To Original?

Nov 30, 2010

I have upgraded to 10.10 and I want to go back to the font used in 10.04. What was the name of the font in Lucid? Moreover, how do I make Google Chrome adopt this change? It is currently rendering all the web-pages with the Ubuntu font and I want whatever 10.04 was using. If I change the font in the Appearance -> Fonts panel, Google Chrome does not update.

General :: Downgrading Ubuntu 9.1 And Revert Back To 9.04

Nov 1, 2009

I upgraded U. 9.04 to 9.1 over the net a few days ago and got stung by the 'Driver' issue. Namely, my nvidia card is not reconciled and as a result, the monitor remains blank. I am assuming that the remainder of the upgrade went o.K. though I can only follow the boot sequence on the monitor during the bios start up.

I have a live disk of U. 9.04 and want to revert back to it, preserving my data. When I put in the disk and am hopefully asked if I want to "Upgrade", will it work in reverse, so to speak. I understand that there is a problem with compatible libraries etc. but will it ignore this and simply replace the new with the old?

Ubuntu :: Revert Back To Open Source Lucid Driver?

May 31, 2010

I made the error of installing FGLRX on lucid. After the install, Plymouth resolution sucks and my laptop will not come out of suspend/hibernate. When I use jockey-gtk to disable FGLRX, it will not allow me to use compiz for 3d graphics. However, out of the box, I was able to run compiz no problem.How can I revert lucid back to factory form, where it was able to perform 3d acceleration without the use of FGLRX?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Revert Back To CentOS Default Yum RPM Repositories?

Aug 5, 2009

A while back I had to install an extra yum rpm repository to my CentOS 5 server as I needed newer versions of httpd (v2.2. and php (v5.1.6) than were in the default repositories at the time.

I now wish to revert back to the standard repositories, I have removed reference to the custom repository from etc/yum.repos.d/ and used '# yum clean all' but cannot seem update these packages when I use '# yum update'.

Is there a way of making the rpm packages for httpd and php go back to using the standard repos, or will I have to manual update them from now on?

Or could I uninstall those rpms and reinstall from default repo without breaking the whole server?

Fedora :: Make Gnome-volume-control Revert Back To Actually Being Gmixer?

Jan 16, 2010

installed F12 and noticed that the volume control applet is now all Pulseaudio rubbish, not Alsa like gmixer used to be. So now I don't seem to be able to mute my speakers when I'm using my headset, which in F10 I could do by just muting LFE/Center.Note I don't want the speakers to be disabled when I have the headphones plugged in (like Jack does) I just want to be able to control volume of the mixer channels individually - as sometimes I'll be playing music through the speakers and will receive a Skype call and want to mute the music, but also don't want the Skype sound coming out of the speakers - just the headphones.

I've tried setting up 4.1+input, 5.1+input, 4.0+input etc; but for some reason, even though the PulseAudio mixer thing has 5 individual sliders, they do nothing as they "jump" back to 100% when you slide them - even with the channels unlocked. gmixer and alsamixer do the job, but pulseaudio is the applet and only seems to control the master volume, not the individual channels. Any ideas - or perhaps a way to make gnome-volume-control revert back to actually being gmixer?

Ubuntu :: Revert Back Accidentally Installed "lxdm" On Top Of 10.10

Nov 3, 2010

I'm using 10.10, up to date etc. I went into Synaptic Package Manager and installed the package "ldxm" and all its dependancies. Now when I go to log into Gnome desktop, all I can see is my wallpaper. All my girlfriend's files and photos were encrypted in the home directory (or whatever), I selected that option when I installed it.

All I wanted was the new login-screen theme (rather than the rectangular default one) and now I can't seem to revert back I just want to go back to before I installed "lxdm"

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.

Debian :: Grub Settings Revert After System Update

May 18, 2010

I used the Debian Lenny (main, not testing) update manager yesterday to install some new updates. Took a few minutes and no problems but today I started up and for some reason my system wouldn`t load.The hard drive installer automatically sets hd1,0 as my Debian system when it`s 0,0. I had changed this but upon updating yesterday the system again has grub using the previous setting.

Is there any logical reason why a system update (not upgrade, just small update via update manager using only main files not testing or volatile nor backports) could or would change my grub settings back to the wrong ones? I haven`t installed anything else, the only change has been the standard system update so it can only be that which caused it, but why?

Ubuntu :: How To Back Up System

Aug 18, 2010

I start up my laptop, and it works great for about an hour but then it starts to make a loud scratching sound and I know that sound is my HD and after I have to shut it down (by holding the power button), it takes a few tries to get it to boot normally. So I'm pretty sure my HD is the problem, so my question is how can I back up my system (I'm running Ubuntu 10.4)? Just in case something really bad happens. I remember there was a thread sometime ago and a guy there said something about a program that would create a iso of the whole system, and it would back up everything even programs and stuff. So can anyone help me with this? (Btw the search feature is not working for me) Also if you wanna buy me a new HD you can do that too XD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Don't Have DVD Drive To Back Up System

Feb 20, 2010

I'm planning on dual booting my netbook with Windows 7 and UNR.However, given that I don't have a DVD drive to back up my system I was wondering if the "Backup Partition" on my harddrive (which as far as I know, was pre-installed) is the same as these disks.Now another problem lies in what happens if all goes south. Do I lose all three partitions? (Ubuntu, Windows, Backup).I suppose that wouldn't be end of the world. I still have another (main) computer running Vista. Still...

I've dual booted my Vista before and while the main job went withou major incident...I do have a bad history of screwing up one or both partitions.Also, will GRUB still work okay with Windows 7? I'd hate to install UNR and then have the boot loader not let me into one (or both OSes).Without the recovery disks I don't really have a safety net. I do have an external, but it already has stuff on it (my Mac HDD finally gave out, and the ext is a mirror of the HDD as death, which is stuff I do not want to lose). So as a last question (in case you know the answer) will backing up NetBook's HDD using the Windows Backup create a new folder of backup in the external, or use the entire external?

Ubuntu :: Back Up System On External Drive?

Mar 4, 2010

I have been using lucky backup to backup my files. However, I am unable to get a list of all packages that are currently installed, turn it into a file, and then back that file up as well with this gui.Lucky-backup's execute function does not work.I would like to have my system backup all appropriate directories upon connection of an external usb drive.I would also like to run a variation of the following command:sudo dpkg --get-selections > /path to external drive/Linux Backup/app-list.log(I need to overwrite the file on every connect- not add to it! What needs to change to this?)1. What commands would I need to use to backup certain directories?2. How can I turn the above mentioned command to OVERWRITE the current file on the drive, and not simply add to it?3. Most importantly, how do I run these commands both immediately upon mounting of the drive, AND/OR "on command" without having to type it all out every time?

Ubuntu Servers :: Back Up System To A Tarball For Quite A While Now?

Aug 28, 2010

I've been trying to back up my system to a tarball for quite a while now. I recently bought a tape drive, and it works. But I'm having a little bit of trouble getting tar to work--whenever I try to copy the files (either directly to the drive at /dev/st0 or to a tarball), I end up with a "file changed as we read it" error, and tar quits before the archive is done. Is there some way I can either prevent this from happening and/or tell tar to just skip that file and keep the job going?

$ cd /home
$ sudo tar -czf /dev/st0 soren {soren being my home directory, /dev/st0 the tape drive}
[sudo] password for soren:
tar: soren/.gvfs: Cannot stat: Permission denied
tar: soren/.local/share/Trash/files/From Removable Media/16GB Flash Drive Dump/Cliffs of Incognita/Cliffs of Incognita Music/Audio/Stereo 01_01.wav: File shrank by 7289884 bytes; padding with zeros
