hi, a question. is 64studio a debian system coherent with current (and future) debian guidelines, or rather a separate debian-derived system? i ask since i have demudi installed, and while attempting to upgrade it with current version of packages it crashed for good. i learned from guys at #debian that it was not fully debian compatible, and therefore can't be treated as debian and upgraded with current debian packages. (the demudi project is defunct, so there are no demudi-specific upgrades available.) i wonder if this won't happen to 64studio, just in case it will be discontinued. and btw., is 64studio a continuation of demudi? there are certain signs...

Problem upgrading

Hi! I'm a new 64studio user. I've installed the 3.0 beta version, and when i try to make sudo apt-get update the system told me that I havent ubuntu-desktop for the upgrading. So I've installed it and now I have problem with 64studio ldconfig deferred processing now taking place Sono occorsi degli errori processando: 64studio E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) What can I do? Thanks to all!

Try this

The Alpha release of the 64 Studio 3.0 is available for download. As it is still an alpha release, there are some outstanding issues, but I find it very stable and already more usable than the 2.1 release. As an added bonus the alpha ISO still fits on a CD - we'll see about the final version though!

contd.

another comeback to the issue (as you see, i can't devote much time to configurational issues, hence the break, sorry). it seems to me, that i can do none of the steps you propose without the root privileges (and i don't have them - THAT'S the bug). i will try to get access to the disc from windows to copy my work, and do the clean install. sorry to say (as i appreciate your and all the team's work a lot), it gives me doubts if i should try again with this distribution. i had really ugly system-related problems with demudi/agnula before, including very not nice "support" from a debian irc support channel when agnula was dead already (i referred to it above). and i switched to 64studio, but the tech problems seem similar. i'm testing ubuntustudio on my other pc, and i'm not sure if i should dive into double configurational problems. i will think about it. please let me know about solutions if there are any. thanks.

Ok...

Let's see. Could you tell me on which version of 64studio you are at the moment? It is important.

What you will have to do is upgrade to 2.1 testing, according to the "Upgrades" page

http://www.64studio.com/upgrade

Remember to follow the instructions for the testing branch.

If this still does not help you, do the following in a termnal:

apt-get install libnet-dbus-perl
/usr/sbin/64studio-config new 

reinstall

thanks, but then i'm to reinstall the system anew including formatting? hoped it's possible to avoid it, as it is often said there's no need to reinstall linux, only update/upgrade. in this case i need to find a way of copying a few things i've done there, and there's no access to other partitions than the linux one(s) for same reason. i used the #64studio irc channel yesterday and somebody directed me to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=219767 as it should be a similar problem. unfortunately, it's not... any workaround, perhaps?

Just as a sidenote, If you have a problem that was not responded to, or is not sorted out yet, it is in your best interest to bump your post. Just add a comment, and it will go to the top of the new posts again. This is a community effort.

Reinstall

Install our 2.1 release. There was a bug that was sorted out, many many moons ago... Also, it is always a good idea to choose a different root password, even if it is the same password with an extra character added. Cheers, Quentin

hi, i installed 64studio with minor troubles and found out at least a few problems i had with demudi were miraculously (and automatically) solved. thanks! however, immediately i bumped onto the following trouble: any program needing root privileges doesn't start after giving root password, stating: Nie można uruchomić /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator jako użytkownik root. Nie powiodła się komunikacja z gksu-run-helper. Otrzymano: setgid: Operacja niedozwolona Oczekiwano: gksu: waiting which is the equivalent of: Failed to communicate with gksu-run-helper. Received: While expecting: i must admit, though, that i suspect setting the same password for user and root accounts, which i did. anyway, found no way to change the passwords with commands known to me (root terminal doesn't start for this reason, although it started, i think, once). thx in advance.

a year has passed, while i didn't use the system. i have returned to it, and the error is still on. no reply here for over a year, though... i tried to ask at the #debian irc channel for help, but they refused, asking: 'can you garantee that your problem is not cause by any of those "only a few backports and bug fixes"?' - i can't of course... i managed to seemingly change the root password and it doesn't change anything. help is very welcome, i think it's not a good thing to reinstall system/move to another for a start thanks in advance

64 Studio is Debian, remixed

Standard Debian, only with a few backports to fix minor (and major) application bugs, and to add essential features. 64studio and demudi has only one common denominator... Free Ekanayaka, now a full Debian maintainer. No, I have used many debian packages directly - no problems. As long as you don't try to mix Etch, Lenny and Sid together too much! But that is true of any true Debian install... Cheers, Quentin
