I am currently dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu linux 10.04. So I downloaded the new 11.04 version of linux onto CD and am trying to install it. How do I delete my current linux partition to install the new version? And for some reason I couldn't upgrade thought the update manager so I have to install by the CD.
I have Fedora 11 on my machine. It comes with gcc 4.5. However, I am trying to compile code that require gcc 4.1. How do I install gcc 4.1 on my machine and still have 4.5 there as well? and how do I uninstall 4.5 gcc if I need. I was trying to use yum, but it did not work. Not sure what package I need.
Is there a simple way to delete an existing Linux Distro install so you can install a new version or distro in the partitions where a current one resides? We have several laptops, all of which are at least dual boot with Windows and with a Linux Distro. A few have Windows and two Linux Distros.
What we want and need to do, without disturbing the Windows install is simply remove a current Linux install and replace it with another install, a simple way. We cannot find a simple Partition command of eliminate install or install over existing install. Since the movement in Linux community for four years now is "easy", "simple", and "user friendly" you would think Ubuntu project would by now have a simple, low risk way of doing this. The delete and expand specific partitions method is very risky (to the O/S installs one wished to keep intact) and requires more partition study than all but a few people have interest or time to invest in.
Anyone know of a simple way to replace an install. What puzzles us is why Ubuntu has not come up with a simple command that allows users to replace one Ubuntu version with another, or at least uninstall back to a previous install when a user finds the new version tanks his system and requires hours of study to figure out how to get his basic hardware up and running.
I realize that Linux community members tend to accept criticism about as gracefully as a Republican or a Democrat but progress cannot happen without constructive or well meaning criticism. For those so tempted, please spare me the "stupid", "its easy idiot", "Works fine on my PC" or "this is the best of all possible worlds" replies.

If I were to install the current daily build of 10.10 (cd) will there be a live update that can be installed on Oct 10? Or do I need to burn the newer 10.10 version on that day and install again by cd?

my laptop currently has 8GB of RAM and I wouldn't want that going to waste. I have read about the issues with flash on the 64 bit versions of buntu. Would you recommend going 64-bit or 32-bit with PAE? also, does the 10.10 kernel have PAE enabled by default?
I would like to know if anyone has run more than one version of mono concurrently. I want to host a Battlefield 2 server with bf2ccd that requires mono 1.1.12. CentOS 5.3 repos provide mono 1.2.4 which is neither new enough nor old enough to support bf2ccd. I have considered compiling a newer version or an older version to accommodate this but I think that the only fully supported version is the 1.1.12 and I want to have the newer mono for other projects. I have used Slackware exclusively up to now and am not familiar with CentOS yet so I would like to avoid compiling if I can. The server is an unmanaged dedicated server so I'm not certain of all of the details. AFAIK it is a standard CentOS 5.3 install.
Specifically, I want Clementine player 0.6, but the guy that installed Ubuntu on my laptop put natty narwhal alpha 1 on it (don't ask me why. I wanted maverick since its stable but he never really asked. The whole thing was kinda a surprise), and Clementine only offers downloads for Ubuntu distros up to maverick. So. Can I/is there a way I can install it anyway? Or am I forced to just use Banshee until the official Update comes out and Clementine is updated in....
Does the gnome live cd install a "live version" of OpenSUSE or a "standard version? I used knoppix 4.x long time ago... I don't want to end up with a default user called linuxuser and not be able to save any changed unless I created an additional read/write partition.
I am trying to install shrew software in OpenSuse 11.3. So , i do cmake ... and finished correctly , but when i do make i got the following error: uic: File generated with too old version of Qt Designer (3.3) I checked the repositories and i got the lowest version of qt available : qt3
Short question: It has been possible in earlier releases to create boot floppies from CD install version, for those PCs who haven't a bootable CD drive.11.2 is deployed as a DVD iso, but I need CD isos for an older laptop with a bootable CD drive only, not DVD. Is there a similar possibility for 11.2 also available?I want a full install, not the readonly "Live" versions.
OpenSuse 11.2 This link shows that gdb-7.2-61.1.x86_64.rpm is the latest version of GDB, but when I do: zypper install gdb, the version 6.8.x gets installed! The following result is after forceful refreshment:
I upgraded to version 11.4 and now I can not install any application. Not YAST or zypper downloaded RPMs.Firefox and Konqueror can not download links that are rpm. I do not understand what happens. Ties other than rpm, if fully discharged. I tried as root and nothing.
i have a live cd i had sent to my address a while back but now i am outdated and would like to upgrade to the current version. is there any commands i can run to upgrade? or will i need to order another live cd
A friend installed Ubuntu 8.4 for me. I tried to upgrade to the current new version but it will stop at one point and say," Failed to fetch compiz-plugins_0.8.4-0ubuntu15_i386.deb. Hash Sum mismatch" and stop. I can separately download that very same file but it won't do it by itself.
how do I get it to work? I am just a windows user trying to learn to get away from Windows. This has been bothering me for the past ten days and each attempt ends at the same point.
If I boot from the opensuse 64bit DVD (Ver.11.0/11.1/11.2 - its the same effect)-the bootmenu appears-i choose to install opensuse in the menu-now the kernel is loading-then i see shortly the next screen-and then my notebook reboot.I have the effect also in the live-version 64bit.The 32bit version works properly.i haven't any problems with vista 64bit or Ubuntu/Kubuntu 64bit, but the same effect with mandriva 2010.0 64bit.
I downloaded the DVD 32 bit and 64 bit as I have 2 machines, one 32 and one 64. After I burn the disks, I put the DVD in and run the check media. The 32 bit version says invalid checksums, cd is broken. I try to install and ever single checksum is invalid, not just one. But every file. The 64 bit says it has bad sectors in it. And will not install. I have tried re-downloading them. Tried burning them on computers. Tried different burning speeds. Nothing. Is this just bad files on the website, or is this all my computrs?
Just a reminder, Firefox 3.0 will reach End of Life status with the upcoming release of Firefox 3.0.19. This may concern you if you are still on Jaunty (like me). You may want to search the forum on how to add the repository for a current version of Firefox or Opera. Anybody who knows what Canonical will do in such a situation if a critical bug shows up after Firefox 3.0 will no longer be supported, but Jaunty still is supported?
I have Ubuntu Server 10.04 Lucid (LTS) installed on my server (EC2 instance). I'd like to install Memcached on it. When I type "sudo apt-get install memcached" I get version 1.4.2-1ubuntu3 installed.
I know there's a newer version 1.4.5 and looking at [URL]..I found it's available in the newer version of Ubuntu (Maverick). Question: is it possible to get the newer version 1.4.5 using apt-get on my current server?
