I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. I was unable to connect to the Internet with Firefox or to download packets using command line or Synaptic Package Manager, or run updates. I disabled IPv6 in Firefox and am now able to browse, but I still cannot connect to repositories, I cannot download packages, I cannot run updates either.
I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?
I have a server which is in an isolated LAN onto which I would like to install some packages from the Ubuntu Repositories.I realise I can go to packages.ubuntu.com and download them one at a time following the dependencies through but this is a bit of a nightmare.Is there anyway I can use the -d option of apt-get to download the files on another machine so I can transfer the lot over in one go?It is probably important to note that the server is running 8.04.4 and the other machine I have run 9.10 and may or may not have said packages installed.
I cannot get my wireless Internet device to work without kppp, but the Unbuntu 8.10 installation cd-rom does not include kppp. kppp has lots of dependencie so how do I download the everything I need to my laptop (XP Pro) where my AT&T USBConnect881 wireless device works, burn at cd-rom with the Ububtu packages, take it to other PC, and install it?
During the installation of Debian ( debian-8.2.0-amd64-CD-1.iso ) I couldn't connect to any mirror probably because the internet wasn't configured.
Thus, after the basic installation I wasn't able to install any packages ( trying to install sudo as root prompted me to insert the media disc - the USB drive I used wasn't detected going in an infinite loop ). Judging by the fact that I don't have a window manager installed.
I have an old laptop running Fedora Core 6. I need to update it for a project at work. I am using my home network and a hard wired connection. I can ping my router, and ifconfig shows my interface is active and has the right IP address assigned. When I try to open the GUI package updater, it fails to connect. Opening an browser also fails to connect. My firewall is turned off. I suspect a service is not starting, but everything I can think of is running. why layer 3 is working, but my apps won't connect to the Internet?
Me & a friend of mine both have ubuntu 10.4 installed on our laptops & have been looking into accomplishing various different tasks. Well as it goes what we are looking to do is to have our laptop/s connect to the internet then automatically search & download image / videos with a certain name...
When I fire up my F10, I get connected to the Internet through wireless automatically. I jus wanted to experience how the CLI- Command Line Interface world is and to test the text based internet apps like elinks,lynx etc.. So I changed the runlevel to 3 in my /etc/inittab file. Now when I fire it up, it gives me the terminal.
The problem is I am unable to connect to internet. How should i connect to the Wireless Access Points.. n also here internet is under a http proxy ...so how to configure the connection.
I have tried a lot, like
I have used this part of script many times in runlevel 5 i.e X mode under gnome for spoofing my wireless adaptor's mac id by adding a line before starting the NetworkManager service.
I have also tried something like
But this one shows nothing(no output just stays blank) I dont get why it doesnt work under runlevel 3..

Alternative to Internet Download Manager (IDM) to download movies from any website.Ok, so one of the cool things about IDM was that i was able to download movies from ..... and other sites that have video clips on their site, but now that i have switch all my computers over to ubuntu linux, i now need an alternative to this problem because IDM will not work with the firefox on ubuntu linux.So my question is, do you guys know of an alternative software for downloading movies from any site such as ..... and other sites?
im using fedora 14 and i have a slow internet connection. i want 2 install some packages from the fedora 14 dvd instead of downloading from internet using add/remove packages. i tried to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo but it dint work.
I don't know where it can come from, but apt won't download any package. Here is the error I get (after a few minutes) :
Code: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following NEW packages will be installed:
I believe it uses http, so that is not a protocol blocked by the ISP.
And it is not automatic : last time I was about to report it here, the bug disappeared (and I didn't report because I thought it could have been fixed somehow, and I couldn't get the error message)
And wired connection works fine, too.
Actually, I just download the package from the address in the log via firefox. I really have no clue, since it is a pretty fresh install (no more than two weeks)
The only thing I can think of would be some bug in apt. I googled for an apt bug, and I saw that apt's http method 'doesn't handle redirects', but that was in 2005. Besides, I wouldn't be the only one to have this problem, and that doesn't explain why it works with a wired connection.
I didn't do anything but writing this post. It really looks random. What can I do when it happens to find out where it comes from?
I just upgraded to Maverick Meerkat not too long ago. Was running just fine up until it stopped downloading packages.won't download updates, new programs from the software center, synaptic packet manager, or the apt-get command in terminal.It keeps telling me that I need to check my internet connection but I can't find anything wrong with it.Everything else is working just fine. t would be greatly appreciated if someone could shed some light on this issue.
It's on a desktop that has a dialup modem but no other Internet access (and I haven't even gotten the modem working yet...). So I have it hooked up to a Win2K laptop on the network that is Sharing its (dialup) Internet connection.I can take the laptop to the public library and leech off their wifi to download stuff at much higher speeds. It's not practical for me to take the desktop to the library... Is there a way for me to use the Windows laptop (at the library) to download the packages Update Manager tries to get for Ubuntu, bring it home, transfer them to the Ubuntu desktop, and have Update Manager just install 'em from there?
The other night I tried to upgrade my system to Karmic Koala. The machine took forever to download the packages and when it was almost completed, the installation phase in the Update Manager suspended. Both keyboard and mouse weren't responsive so I was forced to shut the system down manually. Now when I boot up, it loads the desktop, a dialogue box pops up stating there's an Apt Authentication issue. When I click "Run this action now" it opens a window showing it is about to download 15 packages.
But unfortunately before it can load, the system hangs. If I reboot, close the dialogue box and try to use the Update Manager as a means to correct the problem, the same thing happens. In addition to trying to find a solution, I'm keen to avoid doing a full, clean install, as I don't want to lose the system configs and data (I've got 200gb in music files and use the system as a music server). I've also tried to load in "recovery mode" but it doesn't load properly.
My internet connection is one where I have to pay according to the amount of data transferred and Ubuntu updates require large downloads. I was wondering if there was some way to export the list of packages required for an update in ubuntu and then go and download them from another PC. (The other PC in question will be running windows).I'd love to know of any apps that can do this ..If there aren't any can someone tell me if there is a way to do this? I am just getting used to Linux but I still have no experience at all with writing shell scripts (which I suppose would be needed for this sort of thing).
So in summary, this is what I want. Synaptic (or any other package manager in Linux) should generate a file with all the packages that should be downloaded. A program on the PC with a better internet connection then interprets this file and downloads the packages creating a local copy of the packages. These local copies are then transferred to the Linux box which required the updates and the updates are applied..
I have a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10 karmic, but apt-get update gives error messages "Failed to fetch....; Could not resolve..." for all the packages in the sources.list file. The computer is talking to the network and the webserver is working. I can ping external websites. Is there a setting that must be changed to make downloads function?
I have 2 nic cards. One I use for my LAN and the other for my WAN (ftp, web). I am using a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. If I disconnect the WAN I can download packages (apt-get), ping etc. If both nic cards are active I cannot do either. This behavior is the same whether or not iptables is enabled. BTW I am using the server version. I was only able to find examples that used a GUI, nothing from the command line.
I'd like to find out if it's possible to download and store (not install) official Ubuntu installation files, and then choose to install them whenever. I don't always have internet available and having to be connected every time I want to install a program really sucks. What happens if I had to format or something and I just wanna install all my programs again but no internet connection? Is there also away I can back up my Ubuntu and when I restore, I get all my downloaded and installed programs back, without having to re-install?
I put Ubuntu on my computer about a week ago, and have not been able to download many new programs or updates. For expmple, I'll go over to Update Manager and try to install something, but it will stop usually halfway through or near the end and show me an error message. usually, the message looks like this:FAILED TO DOWNLOAD FILE PACKAGESCheck your Internet connection
Details: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...u10.2_i386.deb Hash Sum mismatch Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...u10.2_i386.deb Hash Sum mismatch
I was wondering how can I re-download only all currently installed packages. I would like to save them to removable media, because I use netinst disc to install, and on slow connection it's hell to download 1GB of packages with console-only.
I'm hitting my head against the wall trying to figure out (and find any information on) how to download a package and all its dependencies.I've tried to clean the cache,$ sudo apt-get clean and then download a package and its depednencies,but it doesn't download dependencies that are already installed.I need to do this to install a package on a machine that doesn't see the net.I remember doing this somehow ages ago, and I think I might have even combined the package and its dependencies into a single self-contained .deb using dpkg.
