Dianemo S on 12.04
« on: June 15, 2012, 11:49:01 am »
I tried unsuccessfully to update from 11.10 to 12.04 on my Dianemo S nervecentre so downloaded the ubuntu 12.04 cd and installed it afresh.

I followed the wiki instructions to re-install Dianemo S but it fails during the install-dianemo.sh script with the following:-

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/mkoegler/bcusdk/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/mkoegler/bcusdk/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
*** Installation FAILED ***

Is it something I've done wrong, or forgotten to edit??

Sounds like you have an old installer. Are you using installer v1.16 ? You need v1.16 to update to 12.04

All the best

I have 1.16 in the deb-cache so I assume thats the one that I am using.

I typed:-
$sudo dpkg -i dianemo-installler_1.16_all.deb (or something very similer, don't have access to the machine at this minute)
and it did its thing with no errors,

Then I followed the rest of the wiki instructions to try and install Dianemo with the message above resulting.  How can I download the latest installer to make sure that it's the newest one and avoid this again?

Thanks.

That ppa does not get removed by v1.16 when you upgrade (under 11.10 and earlier installers that ppa was added). Manually remove the ppa and re-rerun the installer and your all set.

How do I remove the ppa, or perhaps I should ask, where do I remove it from??

Is it not possible to just acquire a copy of the latest Dianemo installer that should work ootb??

Matt.

*EDIT*

I found it, for anyone else having this problem the unwanted PPAs are called in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mkoegler-bcuskd-precise.list

I just commented out the two lines there and it was away.  :D

...by the way you already have the latest Dianemo S installer (v1.16). If you were to do a clean install (I'm not suggesting you need to  by the way!) then the mkoegler ppa will not get installed. The new installer does not remove them however if you already have an installation like you do - manual uninstallation of the ppa is required in this situation.

All the best
