Ubuntu :: Install Software Of Jaunty Release In Karmic?

Jan 21, 2010

Since yestarday, wireless net stop working with my laptop hp compaq 6720S, dual boot vista/karmic.

In jaunty i had the gnome network manager fully working.

When i upgraded to karmic (last october), gnome network manager connected and disconnected the wireless all the time, doing internet unusable.

I fixed the problem installing wicd. I had wireless fully working.

But since yesterday, wicd cannot obtain ip address from wireless and when it can, connects and disconnects net all the time (behaving like gnome network manager). I have reported the problem in this network and wireless forum but yet i cannot obtain answer.

Well, my question is, as gnome network manager from jaunty worked, could i install this gnome network manager release in karmic to fix wireless?.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Upgrade From 9.04 Jaunty To 9.10 Karmic

Mar 12, 2010

i used the Update Manager to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10.. then it said:


While scanning your repository information no mirror entry for the upgrade was found. This can happen if you run a internal mirror or if the mirror information is out of date.

Do you want to rewrite your 'sources.list' file anyway? If you choose 'Yes' here it will update all 'jaunty' to 'karmic' entries. If you select 'No' the upgrade will cancel.

I choose yes, then is said that there's something wrong with the network I'm connected to..then it closes..the upgrade failed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Jaunty To Karmic?

Jun 8, 2011

I have a dedicated server running Ubuntu-server Jaunty. As you know, this OS no longer has security updates. I'm trying to upgrade it to the latest LTS (Lucid) but first thing's first: I'm having trouble upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic.

Here's the problem. I get the following when I try do-release-upgrade:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d
Checking for a new ubuntu release
Done Upgrade tool signature
Done Upgrade tool


force an upgrade to Karmic instead of Lucid? (And no, sadly, re-installing is not an option as this is a server with no direct physical access)

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Out How To Do It Without Upgrading To Impala, Then Jaunty, Then Karmic

Apr 10, 2010

When I installed Ubuntu, I installed the Hardy Heron version. I kept on forgetting to upgrade my system when a new version of Ubuntu came out and now I am considerably behind. I want to upgrade to Karmic, but I can't find out how to do it without upgrading to Impala, then Jaunty, then Karmic. Is there a possible way I can avoid upgrading three times and only do it once?

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrating Jaunty Users To Fresh Karmic?

Jan 25, 2010

I have a working system running Jaunty. For various reasons I want to move to Karmic, but I don't want to use the "upgrade" feature in the software update manager. I need to swap some hard drives around, so I want to do a fresh installation. My question is, what is the easiest way to "migrate" a user to a fresh installation? On a Mac you can simply run the migration tool and it moves everything into place with relative ease, whether from a backup drive or from one computer to another. Is there any analogous program in Ubuntu? Or is it just so simple that such a program is unnecessary?

Ubuntu Servers :: Jaunty To Karmic Upgrade Is Broken Due To Grub2

Jan 11, 2011

i havent really had a chance to ask this for a while, but im in a bit of a bind. im trying to do a release upgrade of 9.04 through to 10.10. I'm stuck at getting karmic to reboot because of a grub problem. I keep getting "error 15" file not found. Not one single forum post has helped for some reason which is strange. Release upgrades have always worked even though not recommended, but this one of all has been the worst of the lot and totally insane.

Im testing in a vmware before i do this for real on the production server, I am using a raid1 setup and boot partitions set to md0.

my fstab after the upgrade before i reboot looked like this

# / was on /dev/md1 during installation
UUID=######################## / reiserfs relatime 0 1
# /boot was on /dev/md0 during installation


I tried to first install grub2, i confirmed it installed and worked perfect, and therefore removed grub legacy.

Ran do-release-upgrade , it completely uninstalled grub2, and it also fails at building /initrd.img-2.6.31-22-server and adding into the grub menu therefore the upgrade fails with this error. I reinstalled grub2, the menu came up fine but trying to load a kernel gave me something like

alert ! /dev/disk/by-uid/############## does not exist.

What is the go with this ? Ive been trying to make this work off and on for 6 months

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Jaunty To Karmic - Lose Compilers And Configurations?

Jan 8, 2010

I'm a newbie to ubuntu and I only used ubuntu less than a month, and I really like it. I would like very much to upgrade my ubuntu jaunty to ubuntu karmic but I have several concerns. If I choose to upgrade via update manager: 1. Will I lose my compilers and configurations? For example, some of my programs in current ubuntu are using gcc 4.3 and g++-4.3. I know that Karmic uses higher version of gcc and g++ and I have installed these programs in higher version of gcc and g++ and I got some problems. I would very much like to stay with my current compilers and configurations. I mean, do have to install all these previous version of compilers when I upgrade to Karmic? 2. What about my data in my home folder? Will it be erased? 3. What about my data in programs such as firefox? Will it too be erased? 4. What will happen to all third party software if I upgraded to Karmic?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wvdial Stops Working After Upgrade From 9.04 Jaunty To 9.10 Karmic

Mar 1, 2010

On a fully updated Ubuntu 9.04 system, I had successfully configured wvdial to connect using a USB modem ("Update" brand) with an ID of 067b:0611 (uses the pl2303 driver module). In considering an upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10, I tried a LiveCD and was unable to connect using wvdial. However, because I had made the CD a couple months before, I went ahead with the upgrade (via the internet; not a fresh install) in the hopes that it would end up working or I would be able to find a solution for it.

The Problem: The upgrade was a success as far as I could tell, but when I tried to connect to the internet with wvdial, I was not able to. I checked the wvdial.conf settings to make sure they were the same as before, added some new ones I thought it might need, unplugged the modem and replugged it, restarted my system, etc., but all to no avail. Whenever I would try to run wvdial to connect, I would get the following output:


--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ


This was different than the output I used to get with wvdial, but when I went over to my browser (Firefox) the internet worked fine. I'm assuming my email client and other things will work okay as well, but have not tested them as of yet.

A final touch I did to make connecting a bit less 'painful' was to right-click on the panel (at the top of the default Ubuntu screen), and click on 'Add to Panel'. Then I selected 'Custom Application Launcher', chose 'Application in Terminal' for 'Type', gave the launcher a name, pasted in that 'horrifically' long command line above, gave a brief description in the 'comment' box, then pressed 'OK'. Voila! I now have a launcher on my panel that with a single-click will bring up a terminal screen where I enter my sudo password and it connects. Then when I want to disconnect I just go back to that terminal, press Ctrl+C, which promptly disconnects me and causes the terminal to vanish into thin air.

Now, I don't know enough about this stuff to know why this command worked and wvdial didn't, but if you know, feel free to post a reply. Or if you'd like to see what settings I had for wvdial that worked in 9.04 but not in 9.10, let me know. Or if you think it's worth checking to see if this should be posted as a bug in either wvdial or Ubuntu, you can mention that as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount Of Root Filesystem Failed: Jaunty To Karmic

Nov 21, 2010

I decided to try to do the 3 distro upgrade stretch from 8.04 to 10.04 this weekend and now I am hung on 9.04 to 9.10.. The upgrade went swimmingly, but I hit a wall upon boot. When I try to load kernel 2.6.31-22 I am greeted with the following error:


[ 20.879845] ACPI: I/O resource vt596_smbus [0x400-0$407] conflicts with ACPI region SMOV [0x400-0x406]
Mount of root filesystem failed.

A maintenance shell will now be started ... After doing some digging I found this thread which appears to be similar in the inability to mount the filesystem. However, it does not mention the ACPI error. I tried everything in that thread; verifying device ID's, editing fstab options; running a filesystem check, and flipping the UTC option in the rcS file but nothing worked. The OP of that thread eventually did a fresh install of Karmic; but I would rather not have to go that far.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Netbook Release Stops Auto-mounting Drives

Feb 27, 2010

I installed UNR recently and after a few days, it stopped auto-mounting anything not part of its default installation. Meaning, it won't auto-mount anything plugged via the USB as well as any other drives or partitions I added to fstab. Everything seems to be correct especially since it works fine on my desktop and I have exactly the same configuration (of course except for the UUIDs). I have to manually go to Disk Utility just to mount and eject/unmount.

UNR also stopped showing 'detected' and 'mounted' drives via the "Files and Folders > Volumes" section, even tho the system detects these drives/partitions (eg. via Disk Utility or blkid).I have the permissions for the logged-in user set. I have the nautilus automount setting checked (it was never unchecked). For the fstab part, the UUIDs are correct and everything else. For the USB part, well, just like the fstab part, no auto-mounting at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Jaunty ATI Xserver No Backfill After Jaunty-proposed Update

Jan 9, 2010

Been using since summer 2009 the xserver no backfill from PPA: [URL] and it was working fine with my ATI video card. No heavy CPU usage when restoring from minimized and a general performance boost were the results of that use.But recently made an upgrade and realized that xserver-xorg-core package (check it from synaptic manager) has been upgraded to a jaunty-proposed version and the problems started to appear again!So using Synaptic I selected this package and hit CTRL-E key in order to choose the nobackfill version. This way things got back to normal!

OpenSUSE Install :: Installed - Now Ubuntu Jaunty Isn't Showing In GRUB ?

Sep 4, 2009

I used to dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu for quite some time now. Yesterday after seeing OpenSUSE installed on my friends lappy, I decided it IS the time to bid goodbye to Windows. I don't play games, just internet browsing, listening to music, some letter writing and movies of course!

So today I removed Windows XP by formatting C: drive and installed OpenSUSE.

I am happy with OpenSUSE, but I still want to dual boot OpenSUSE with Ubuntu. But in the GRUB,only OpenSUSE entry is shown, Ubuntu is nowhere. It seems OpenSUSE has overwritten the Ubuntu GRUB during install and doesn't include Ubuntu in the boot list as Ubuntu does for other OS when we install Ubuntu.

How to create an entry in the GRUB so that I am able to boot into Ubuntu also.

Ubuntu :: Grub Error 18 After Install Of Jaunty Alongside Lucid?

Apr 11, 2010

I had installed Lucid on a clean install on my laptop - three partitions - ext4 home, ext4 lucid and swap.I've been using it for around a week, and find it a bit buggy in places, so I thought I would install jaunty (which proved very reliable in the past). I used the usual installer, and made my /home partition smaller, and created a new ext3 partition for jaunty, assigning the smaller partition to /home.The install proceded without any problems, but on rebooting I just get this:GRUB Loading stage1.5GRUB loading, please wait...Error 18I was hoping that Jaunty would not install grub, but I didn't see any option to prevent this during the installation. I suspect Grub 1.5 has been installed and now it's all messed up

OpenSUSE Install :: Convert Factory Install Into Point Release Install Later

If I install the factory release now, can I easily convert my system to a normal 11.3 point release later, after 11.3 is out? If so, how would I do it? (11.2 has an issue that affects me. It's fixed in 11.3 already, so I have to use 11.3 if I'm going to use openSUSE.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Seem To Install Latest Release Over 5.04

Feb 26, 2010

I downloaded the latest release, burned a disk and successfully booted. When it comes time to choose a partition I don't have the option of replacing the old release. I can install in parallel leaving both but can't use the whole disk. Interestingly enough I CAN replace the windows installation. Of course I already have Grub installed but I don't see how this would affect installing. I read the article here [URL] and it seems I may have missed a step. However it's implied I will lose the current Grub installation. Is that the case?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install RELEASE And Software Manager Are Tweaking Out

May 26, 2011

I installed Natty Narwhal from a pendrive I set up, which was a bit of a messy install to begin with. However, after booting into Ubuntu, this application called "Install RELEASE" appears. When I run it, it shows up just like I'm installing Ubuntu again. After following it through, it will stop and say that it must unmount /. It offers two options, Go Back, or Continue. Picking either does nothing. This hasn't seemed too big an issue. I can still run it fine. However, the Software Centre is an issue. Whenever I try to download something from it, I get this error:
