New upgrades proposed: problems

  • madforthenet
Posted: Tue, 04/07/2009 - 19:21
A few moment ago on appears message for install 7 new upgrades such linux-image , linux-headers, for kernel multimedia , but you can answer yes it shows a new message that is possible a partial upgrade cause conflict with installed software . Then I have open synaptic and click on mark all upgrades and in the next window shows sotware to be installed, uninstalled, upgraded or not changed. In uninstall list there was only a file : linux-rt After i Click on apply installation was started and it goes with no problem, but in the end appears a final message " E: linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686: post-installation process script has shows error code 20" Sorry for not exact translation from message in italian language. Now I' starting to restart system and after post about problem or impression. Bye Guido

I am getting the "Not all updates can be installed" warning from the Update Manager and have options to do a Partial Upgrade or close the warning. I have closed it and ignored it for a while, but saw Guido had the same error here. Did that get solved or was a reinstall nessecary? Updates not checked in the list include: audacity, ffmpeg, and linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686. Errors are here http://pastebin.com/m49257bf3 brian@64studio:~$ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-2 Linux 2.6.29 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/ ii linux-libc-dev 2.6.29-4 Linux support headers for userspace developm ii linux-rt 2.6.29-2 Linux kernel 2.6 image on i386-class machine brian@64studio:~$ dpkg --get-selections meta-package No packages found matching meta-package.

Hi Guido, Same here. I don't have a great deal of software use experience with GNU\Linux either, but there are others on the forum who have so that's fine. You are already a good tester. Just look back over this thread to confirm how much we've learned. **Benchmark Project:** coldduck-unmastered.wav Download: jam-ard-tutorial.tar.gz *from here* $ tar xvzf jam-ard-tutorial.tar.gz $ cd jam-tut/cold-duck_master01/sounds/ $ oggdec coldduck-unmastered.ogg $ cp coldduck-unmastered.wav ~/ Import coldduck-unmastered.wav into an Ardour project and save to use as a benchmark-test project to compare the two kernels. Create other projects in the software you use to use as benchmarks. e.g. Hydrogen, Rosegarden. Make notes of how your new Sound card works with the present kernel. Kernel Revision linux-image-2.6.29 Cheers! Dave.

New thread

Hi Dave Yes I think start new thread anout new kernel it's good idea. I should install new sound card before new Kernel. My friend sell an M-Audio Delta 1010LT made in 2006 and then I have this card to try . He went at my home 30 minutes ago ,Then I think to proceedin this way: 1-remove old sound card 2-install new card 3-rapid test of new sound card and if it's ok go to point 4 4- install new kernel and test various applications & programs. Sincerly I tell you that I'm a newbie in computer music and digital audio , I playing guitar and I have some experience with fruity-loops flstudio. In audio I have only process aduio tracks fro cleanig and add effects from old tape and LP recornding sometimes from live instrument recording using a very simple program on windows. Then I don't know if I'll be a good tester . Bye Guido

Preparing PC2

Hi Guido, Good call:) we need to test this new kernel. I'll do a fresh install and set up on PC2 and we'll slowly go through the test at the same time. I've been going here since early this morning so tomorrow would be great to start. Set up your sound and system before we start and check all is ok. Create some projects e.g. one in Ardour, rosegarden and any other software you use regularly so you can compare the differences between the kernel running now and the new one. Maybe it would be good to start with a fresh thread also? Cheers! Dave.

Hi Dave .After fresh clean

Hi Dave .After fresh clean install and apt-get upgrade my pc is: guido@64studio:~$ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-2 Linux 2.6.29 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/ ii linux-libc-dev 2.6.29-4 Linux support headers for userspace developm ii linux-rt 2.6.29-2 Linux kernel 2.6 image on i386-class machine So I think I should try to install with B option to test the new Kernel and if I don't have any problem then try C option, but for this I must undertsand well hwo I do step-by-step, but for this we have time to talk about, but if you want explain in detail when we have time to do..............

Hi Guido Great news:) Yes installing needs to be done with care and calmly. Once you get used to working on the command line it's very peaceful and rewarding. Apt & dpkg is one of its Debians finest points. I've just built Ardour 2.8 on my fresh beta3 install, time for a break, then look to Ardour 3.0. At this time we have. $ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-2 (2.6.29-2) ii linux-rt 2.6.29-2 But the kernel packages in the repositories are (2.6.29-4) *There are three options available:* A: Setup and configure the install using the default beta3 kernel using the default xorg.conf or use the free "nv" driver and test the original kernel performance. Whilst waiting for information regarding the backport kernel packages. B: apt-get install the latest kernel (2.6.29-4). Using the default xorg.conf or use the free "nv" driver and test the new kernel. C: apt-get install the latest kernel (2.6.29-4). Then apply the sample.kernel-img.conf fix. Install linux-kbuild-2.6.29 which will allow the image-source & image-headers to install (2.6.29-4). Then try to install the nVidia binary driver. Post back your decision before you make any changes to the kernel. At this point in time I'm sticking to option "A" on one PC until I see how the default kernel behaves with Ardour etc., On PC1 here I'll be working in this order "A" then when I'm happy with the results "B" to compare the two kernels. Finally trying "C". I'm in no rush. The one testing kernel I have already installed previous to today's fresh install needs a lot more testing before I'll move forward any more. Up to now a few users have reported on the new testing kernel, so if you do decide to install and test the kernel your report would give us even more valuable information. It would be interesting to hear how the kernel install and nvidia install goes. Be aware that you could end up reinstalling again. I'll run the upgrade here also on a different PC if you want to go for the test. Let me know what you decide to do so I can prepare the second PC. One more install-test is just a drop in the ocean here, so it's your call:) Cheers! Dave.

Hi Dave now seems it's all

Hi Dave now seems it's all ok . I think it's better for a few time to install upgarde with caution and by $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade to keep back: audacity ffmpeg linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 until kernel file will be all ok. Only one bad thing : we cannot install nvidia or ati driver and use fro example nv without 3D acceleration. Am I right ? Do you know any news about when it's happen ? bye Guido

Hi Guido Happy Hacking Software piracy "Cracking" is only one part of computing. As soon as you change your desktop wallpaper you are "hacking" your computer. If developers didn't hack and devote their lives to editing text files "Hacking" GNU\Linux and many other free operating systems wouldn't exist, If hackers didn't develop the kernel "Hacking" where would we be? See: This one is old, interesting & provides good search material: 64studio3.0 beta3: I need to spend some time reading the rest of your posts now and do some research, but I find it strange that the beta3 is now playing up. I will download a fresh iso and see what happens here. Back Soon. Cheers! Dave.

Refer to this thread I lookin into /usr/share/doc/ and there isn't kernel-package/examples/ directory. Please note that I have downloaded another image of 64studio3.0 beta 3 then it's impossible a software error. If should be true we have a serioue bug in release Now I try to make a clear install starting to stable release 2.1 then upgradin to testing follow instruction of Upgrades Section Do you think is a good idea ?

Instead other problem about upgrade and related messages are the same and now I'm start to install software one-to-one so watch the message that every packet show me before installation to exclude packet upgrades that create problem But there's no a solution I'm waiting for a definitive solution bye Guido

Hey Q, I was wondering if you had an ETA for backporting the nvidia drivers. I'm TOTALLY not trying to pressure you just wondering if you have a feeling about when/if that will happen. Thank you for your work, tb

Hi skullnotions I hope understand right your suggest and this is the link where I post my sources.list http://paste.ubuntu.com/147182/ I have used the same nick madforthenet After clear install I have selected manually some packet and installation was ok After Update manager shows 16 new upgrades : ffmpeg , audacity , linux-image-2.6.2-1-multimedia-686 are uncheck all other are check kdelibs-data,kdelibs4c2a,libkrb53,liblinuxsampler,libwine,libwine-cms,libwine-gl,libwine-gphoto2,libwineldap,libwine-nas,libwine-print,libwine-sane,linuxsampler,wine,wine-bin,wine-utils I have 2 choice , but it's suggets to run partial upgrade. But when I run partial upgrade system show follow message: Can't guess meta-package Your system does not contain a ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop or edubuntu-desktop package and it was not possible to detect which version of Ubuntu you are running. Please install one of the packages above first using synaptic or apt-get before proceeding. So now I'm in diificulty and Im not sure what I do Have you some suggest? I'm on line for the next 3 hours Bye Guido

Re:2.6.29 - 2.6.29-4 kernel.

On your last install, when you "Selected All" in Synaptic it was the same as running $ apt-get dist-upgrade. It "forced" the kernel to install and "removed" linux-rt. If you tried a partial install or $ apt-get upgrade This will hold back the kernel.... (2.6.29-4) But install all the other kernel packages (2.6.29-4) which means the kernel does not match the testing linux-headers, linux-source linux-libc-dev etc., It's a no win situation at this point in time. You are going to get a mismatch for now. Put your sources list in here and post pack the link. Cheers! Dave.

You are going to hit the same issue with a new install. The kernel, headers and source will mismatch at this point in time with nvidia drivers. Quentin is going to backport the required files shortly. Until then If your nVidia binary driver is working and you need it Don't upgrade the kernel packages. With a fresh install use the "nv" driver for the time being. Cheers! Dave.

Hi guys Yes after this upgardes there's a problem you can't install n-vidia driver because the error refer to linux-image that appears not installed . I think these are conflicts genenerated by installation of linux-kbuild-2.6.29 - backport your own NOW Maybe I have make an error to mark this upgrade , maybe I wuold make a partial upgrade , but I have think that synaptic is able to resolve this. Now I have a screen on very low reolution and I'll try to reconfigure xserver. Question: there's a way to solev this or I must reinstall from begining with a clear install ? Bye Guido
