From Ubuntu Hardy to 64 Studio

So, after some weeks of tests, records, etc... what to say. If it seems to be very easy to go to 64 Studio from a Ubuntu Hardy install, the two distributions are not very compatible. Enough for me to say that this is not a good idea to keep Ubuntu Hardy repository in 64 Studio, nor the other way. Two examples: - Once in 64 Studio, it is not possible to install application like Thunderbird and Enigmail from Ubuntu Hardy repositories because of dependencies version conflicts; - If just adding the 64 Studio repository to Ubuntu Hardy, it is not possible to install jackdmp and multimedia kernel, for the same previous reason. So I am waiting to the next available version of 64 Studio to see if it is truly compatible with Ubuntu Hardy or just based on. For that reason, I won't write a complete tutorial nor a script about installing 64 Studio via Ubuntu Hardy, until it would be more compatible. Hoping a lot from 3.0 beta 2... Toine

Upgrading from Linux Mint 5 XFCE

Just to chime in here, I too had trouble with the multimedia kernel while upgrading from Linux Mint 5 XFCE, which is based on Ubuntu (or should I say Xubuntu?) Hardy. I was fine up until the reboot after installing the new real-time-kernel. This was my experience: During the reboot I got an error message that "There was an error loading the theme 64 Studio". No big problem there. After I booted into the new kernel I just changed the log-in theme back to Mint. All of the audio apps installed just fine, and seemed to be in working order. Then I noticed that my wireless was dead. Wicd gave me the message "No Wireless Networks Found"... So I rebooted into the old 2.6.24-24 generic kernel and my wireless worked fine. Back into the new 2.6.29-1 Multimedia kernel and the wireless was still dead. I have a laptop so wireless is a deal breaker for me. Out of desperation I replaced Wicd with Network Manager via synaptic, as I have done before on Mint 6, but that didn't solve the problem. Not only were there no wireless networks detected, but the network settings seemed to be locked/grayed out. And when I say "locked", I don't mean that I had to unlock them with my admin password. I mean there was no option to unlock them. At this point I had to get out of the house for a while, so I put my laptop in suspend mode. When I woke it back up I got a message that looked something like "[216.990580] IWLAGN: Could not read the microcode firmware..." After that I had to do a hard shutdown and I went ahead and reinstalled Mint (without attempting another upgrade).

Quentin, You mean about the error1 on the installation of the 64studio package ? Let me know when you update some stuff about that problem, and be sure I'll take time to make trials again with feedback. Toine

Hi Toine, This is also related to the strange backporter bug we have on the main package server. It is supposed to backport all the dependencies of the packages backported, but there is a problem there. Working on it at the moment. Regards, Quentin
