    Re: Package System Broken

    blueboy1; shame-faced me.

    I am in error and have been barking up the wrong tree, in respect to the version of "initrmafs-tools-bin: that should be installed !

    Per:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?su...amfs-tools-bin

    UPDATED 12.04.3 should have version 0.99ubuntu13.2.

    Let's see what results when we try and install the correct version:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/initramfs-tools-bin_0.99ubuntu13.2_amd64.deb
    And get a new perspective on things.

    2 steps forward and 3 back, better traction now ?

    That looks promising !
    try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    just to see if we are operational at this time.

    5 steps forward ?

    blueboy1; shucks !

    Well, at least the error has changed to only less than - for some unknown package's requirement.

    Lemme cogitate and look see what I am able to come up with now with this greater focus.

    Re: Package System Broken

    blueboy1; Hey !

    Maybe in fact the problem is "initramfs-tools" it's self is under-versioned !
    let's look:
    Code:
    apt-cache policy initramfs-tools
    dpkg -s initramfs-tools
    dpkg -l initramfs-tools
    makes sense to me

    Description: tools for generating an initramfs
     This package contains tools to create and boot an initramfs for packaged 2.6
     Linux kernel. The initramfs is a gzipped cpio archive. At boot time, the
     kernel unpacks that archive into RAM, mounts and uses it as initial root file
     system. The mounting of the real root file system occurs in early user space.
     klibc provides utilities to setup root. Having the root on MD, LVM2, LUKS or
     NFS is also supported.
     Any boot loader with initrd support is able to load an initramfs archive.

    Re: Package System Broken

    blueboy1; Regret the delay in responding.

    I attempted to (re)boot into my 12.04 // and grub could no longer find my hard drives !

    I continue to struggle with resolving initramfs-tool dependency.

    I continue to be concerned with differing aspects of this situation.
    For your reference, my apt-cache policy output:
    sysop1@1204-a:~$ apt-cache policy initramfs-tools
    initramfs-tools:
    Installed: 0.99ubuntu13.2

    500 http://ftp.utexas.edu/ubuntu/ precise/main amd64 Packages
    sysop1@1204-a:~$
    note in your output the availability of version 0.99ubuntu13.3 0 (precise-proposed !)

    My concern at this time is that if we attempt to update initramfs-tool ... will update to the latest available version,

    I am presently hung up on a method to download the 0.99ubuntu13.2 0 .deb file,

    As soon as I get it fingered out I will be back !

    Re: Package System Broken

    @ oldfred ; Thanks !

    Now I am even more confused. My 12.04 ubuntu install is also fully updated but with the original 12.04.1 kernel series, recon that is the difference ?
    In your opinion, is is safe to try and "apt-get install" initramfs-tools. What I had in mind was to see the result of attempting to go with "apt-get download" initramfs<version>.deb via '500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main amd64 Packages' .
    However, my lack of exact knowledge is biting me bad ! ... Do the archives house individual files ? Or, are we to download the wanted 13.2 version from "packages.ubuntu.com" with wget ??? Some time expended in attempting to see a .deb file in the archives ! Maybe I just do not have my syntax correct.

    What is required at this time is the 13.2 version of initramfs-tools to be installed.

    still learning even after all these years
