    Upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10

    Hi All,

    I recently made a blunder, of upgrading from ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10. I should have listened to peoples advices...
    anyways....


    there are a couple of problems i am facing.

    1. My touchpad is not working
    2. My sound card is not detected
    3. My video card is not detected.

    I have tried various methods told in various websites but nothing is helping.

    I am pretty new to linux platforms and hence can't really do too much myself.

    Kindly please help.

    Sincerely,

    There is only one solution, install the full version 9.10 from scratch. Don't forget to backup your home folder, just the visible files like Documents, Music, Pictures, etc.

    9.10 is very buggy, glitchy, and doesn't work on my Dell Studio 1555. I would not recommend upgrading to the 9.10. Perhaps, downgrade since you already did?

    Re: Upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10

    Like rules, programs are made to be ... explored. Given sufficient exploration, most programs become buggy. I'm running 9.10 on a Studio 17 with no problems.
    A clean install is often a good idea. If you do that, I'd strongly encourage you to partition up your hard drive, and create a /data partition to keep the stuff you don't want to have to reinstall with each upgrade. /home is OK, but there's a whole lot of configuration files that end up in it (network card drivers for ndiswrapper and Gnome config files I've had trouble with in the past), and so it's a good idea to be able to choose how much of /home you keep from one install to the next.

    However, from what you've said is wrong, there's possibly a few easy fixes.

    For the video card, have you enabled the restricted driver? The option should have been given on install, if not it's in System/Adminstration/Hardware Drivers.

    Sound: the most common problem is the mixer volume is set to 0. Open a terminal (Applications/Accessories/Terminal) and type in
    Code:
    alsamixer
    ; have a look to see what the settings are at. it's a terminal, but you can use the arrow keys to get around. There's a really good sound troubleshooter kept here; have a look for more ideas.

    For the touchpad, is it not working at all? In the terminal, type in
    Code:
    xev
    move your mouse up to the square and see if there's any output. If there is, your touchpad is sending events and you've got the recognition turned off. There's sometimes a switch just above the pad that you may have knocked.

    Post back if you need more help.
