Upgrading from 10.04 to 16.04
« on: July 28, 2017, 09:04:58 pm »
Hi all,

after a long time, i'm back and would like to upgrade from 10.04 to 16.04.

Is there a tool where i can preserve the configurations, like phone lines, extensions, etc, or do i need to install from scratch and configure all again?

With best regards,

Paulo

you could try upgrading to 14.04 by changing the package repositories to trusty in /etc/apt/sources.list, doing an apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade.

I would suggest backing up the system disk, before doing this.

16.04 is still being debugged, so it shouldn't be used, at present.

To add to what Tschak said: Phenigma had good success moving from system to the next by using the regular LinuxMCE Backup and Restore which is available from the web admin.

The preferred way of installing LinuxMCE these days is:

* Install regular (*)Ubuntu 1404 Desktop (32 or 64)
* Run netinstall.

Enjoy :-)

Thank you Posde. I thought only 32 bit would work. Ok, 64 bits prefered :)

Netinstall = wget mce-install.sh ?

Thanks!

Define endless.

Do you have another option of a graphics adapter?

endless.... looping ;)

no i don't have another graphic card.

I can enter rescue mode at boot and remove the nvidia drivers. any hint which driver shall i use for it?

blacklisted nouveau, removed nvidia*, installed drivers from NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102.run, same thing... 0, pointer, 0, pointer in a loop.

it seams that nvidia-install.sh is installing the removed drivers again.

did not give a try, but can i disable nvidia-install.sh so the NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102 stays? is it supported by lmce?

TIA

i did some minutes ago.

removed the nvidia drives (NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102.run --uninstall), removed all nvidia drives (304, 375, etc), downloaded from pastebin, used and the result was the same, with 340. Changed to 304, and the result was the same.

From ssh i could see AVWizard installing 340. did not work. Could see installing 304. Did not work either.

Any driver your recomend?

This hardware configuration worked with 10.04 (well, i build it and used the HD with lmce 10.04).

TIA

Last I looked, in nvidia-install.sh, the selection of which nvidia driver version is based on the version of Ubuntu.  Even though I'm running 14.04, my graphics card only works with the 302 driver.  I edited nvidia-install.sh to only be able to install the 302 driver. 

You may have similar situation
