Re: Intrepid distribution gone from archives
« on: November 08, 2010, 07:24:40 pm »
Hi,
After following the advise above, the apt-get update worked fine.

But when I apt-get dist-uprade, i get...

Err http://old-releases.ubuntu.com intrepid-security/main linux-restricted-modules-2.6.27-17-generic 2.6.27-17.23                                                               
 404 Not Found

(as an example)

I then followed the http to path (http://old-releases.ubuntu.com ) and noticed all the specified paths do not exist any longer. i.e no link to intrepid-security...

can somebody please direct me to the correct location to download the needed files for apt-get dist-upgrade

thanks in advance

Hi Richard, thanks for your help.
Yea upt-get update worked fine for me too with the old-releases change.

My problem was with apt-get dist-uprade not finding the correct http site.

It seems your  (/etc/apt/sources.list) differs from mine , so for experimental purposes I used your  /etc/apt/sources.list and ran  apt-get dist-uprade . There was more action with downloading files, but then the same 404 problem happened again.

Cheers
Dan

Do we know if this will run on a newer version of Kubuntu.
It seems that most of the packages are not supported anymore because most of the important Intrepid folders dont exist anymore.
It seems we would do better with a newer version and stop messing with Intrepid.

Just asking...

Later :-\

(1) we are working on getting LinuxMCE to build atop Lucid. (We still have a lot to do even after all the packages build. Major system changes have taken place)
(2) We are changing the master database to point to archived versions of needed 8.10 system packages.

This is the official message coming from us, the developers working on this project.

Thx Thom.  Some of us have found a work around and have posted it in the forum.  This should help others install and use the system until a more permanent solution is found. 

Thx for the hard work.

Thanks a lot for your hard (unpaid, sparetime) work! With a little patience from our side I am sure this will work out just fine.

...
So who's working on that then?

I've already got them to build months ago...

Zaerc, we've gotten the packages to build, and are now working through bugs.

For example, we are needing to now replace HAL with a DCE Device that uses DeviceKit.

Now I am just asking out of curiosity, is there a time frame for a release for us to start testing?  No pressure, just something to look forward to.

I too was wondering this as I managed to get most of the project to build under 1004.  Not suggesting that I have the knowledge to fix many of the issues that have arisen but...  Where is the svn branch for 1004 and where are updated sqlCVS tables with lucid data?

The 'Lets move to 1004' chant has been sung by many and, I'm sure, many people here could/would put time into this if they knew what was/is going on.  A unknown post in an un-related topic is an absolutely terrible way of 'Officially' announcing anything.

I checked in part of the needed bits to the Package tables in sqlCVS this last weekend. I will do the rest soon. I am doing them by hand, so that I can see the package landscape as it is at the moment.

Once this is done, I will talk to possy about cloning the 0810 branch to be trunk. There were unusual circumstances which forced us to abandon trunk, and start from the 0710 branch (Aaron, prior to folding Pluto, was experimenting with what would eventually become Vera in trunk, and made changes in sqlCVS that broke things for us.)
