upgrade via synaptic broke e19

3.0 unusable

Best Answer jrg, 08 March 2015 - 02:47 AM

The version of E19 your package manager installed means you have our unstable branch enabled. You can download the stable build of e19 from here -> http://packages.bodh...ool/main/e/e19/and install it over the unstable version using DPKG.

 

Moving this to the unstable forum subsection.

Oh - guess I forgot to change it sometime in the dim past?

I did a routine upgrade via synaptic this AM which included e19.

Now boots ok but all applications launch with blank windows including terminal.

Went to command line & tried & reinstall e19 - no diff.

Seeing there is a RC3 out (I'm on RC1 still) I tried to do sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

It went did nothing.

Why might that have happened?

Can only post from windows for now...

Bodhi is now at 3.0 Stable. You might just want to download it and reinstall!

You mean the ISO and clean install?

 

This can't be done with apt-get?

 a clean install should be unnecessary. Try deleting the hidden folder .e and rebooting. You will lose all e customizations and have to redo but that is most likely the cause of the issue.

what is the cause of the issue - corrupted config?

 

I'm a little sick of having to delete the .e folder all the time.

 

Would this have caused apt-get to malfunction on dist-upgrade?

ok - did the delete e deed and now have visible screens.

tried eepdater and it does not upgrade as I thought it would.

apt-get dist-upgrade does nothing either.

 

So, do I need to clean install to get RC3?

if apt-get dist-upgrade installs nothing Bodhi is up to date. You have no need to do any more and a clean install is not really needed.

I don't recollect installing RC3 and was thinking the new e19 (vers 20150305-1) was intended for a newer vers of 3.0.

I downgraded to  20150220-1 and everything works again (after restoring /e).

 

The headers updated as linux-headers-3.13.0-46 (3.13.0-46.77) but they don't show in grub as such - should they?

If we want the unstable branch disabled and just the stable branch enabled, what should our '/etc/apt/sources.list' look like? I'm running rc3.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, duh, there it is just staring me in the face --> Comment the unstable line and leave the main line uncommented. :rolleyes:
