Ubuntu 9 04 not updating dating wellbutrin
Hmm, never having seen 'etc-update' in Ubuntu before, a bit stupid, only by now I thought 'Maybe also should have updated /etc/*...'. Of course I was OK with this, and I thought it was an automated process, so I clicked OK and it asked me again. And then removing '-9'because, if you're like me, you alwas type 'rm -rf' without questioning if you really need '-rf', but it's just habit, the in-finger-memory is trained that rm always goes with rf, right?
Well, too late, and not really necessary: Only two seemingly unimportant files it questioned me about. After that, it was pretty easy sailing, the only thing I noticed was it took a long time to delete all old unused kernels.
What I was hoping for, was a better default environment than Unity; and to try if the gnarly Gnome would suit me. After that, I decided to pre-emptively cut out some file-rot before doing a backup.
'$ find ~ -size 10M -type f' indeed found some big and forgotten files which were over the date.
Now, I'm like the weird kinda guy who could stare at 'Gentoo emerge gcc-output' or 'Windows 98 Defragmantetion rectangles' for hours, so watching the terminal telling me about the hundreds of Megabytes being downloaded and the dozens of packages to be updated or removed felt like a great 'throw back' in time, although it doesn't compile anything of course.
Twice it asked me about a file in /etc and how I wanted it to be updated. 'OK, no problem' I though, hammering in 'ps ax; kill -9 1264' (or such a number).
To fix it, I released the meandering mouse, that is I installed and customized XFCE.
Because Ubuntu's defaul environment didn't work anymore, I decided to update to 18.04 LTS as quick as I could. It felt pretty useless, but somewhere on the internet I read this advice.
Because there's only two kind of people, those who make backups and those who will, I mounted a second harddrive, and used '$rsync -Ap from-dir to-dir' to backup my home directory. If you're paranoid, that would be a good time to unscrew the harddrive and carry it at least one hundred anaconda-distances away.
It contains parts from most years between 2006 (Case, PSU) and 2016 (SDD).
It was running Unity, but because of the 'antique' AMD power efficient but slow CPU (4850e), Unity became more and more like a slow snake, until the desktop became unusable.
Wow, did I just wait two years for exactly _no visible_ changes whatsoever? 'Ubuntu Default (Wayland)' doesn't work, a short blackout and back to the 'desktop session manager', which looks like 'lightdm' but I guess it isn't.
Luckily enough, 'Default' does work, Gnome starts, and it's not responsive at all on this hardware, but it does work!This process in Ubuntu is quite inefficient: It deletes 1 out of 6 kernels, than configures the other 5, removes the next, configures the other 4, removes the next, configures again... It shows me the usual notice about 'Spectre retpoline' and my usual 'ATA' messages, probably because the old unused HDD which I was too lazy to remove. Until after 50 seconds, luckily this was just a timeout.
