    Re: Upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

    ubuntu 12.04 has gnome fall back mode. I think it's the last version that still has it.then ther eis always Mate and also xubuntu (which is kind of like old gnome and uses old gnome libraries anyway..).

    to shink parittion use gpardted running in liveOS boot. /swap can be the size of your ram.

    Re: Upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

    Good Day Sir,
    Thank you for you time and your input. I am getting alot of great info here. I ran 12.04 off of Live CD for the most part all day yesterday and was able to run sudo apt-get install gnome-fallback to run it even off Live CD and test drove that also. It looked pretty decent, it was not 100% Gnome 2 (alike). I would have to figure out what happened to all my stuff under the "system tab", but with having a barebones OS at that point, it seemed and felt pretty good.

    Any more suggestions or 12.04 cool stuff suggestions would be appreciated further. This is also why I was not fond of upgrading also, was because for days I would consume myself in the fun stuff, and not focus on work. Lol. But after test driving 12.04, I am anxious to get backed up and upgraded.

    Re: Upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

    I'm having trouble upgrading from 10.04 to 12.04. I keep getting the message below.

    Could not calculate the upgrade

    An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade:
    E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

    This can be caused by:
    * Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

    If none of this applies, then please report this bug using the command 'ubuntu-bug update-manager' in a terminal.
    I know that I have a fair amount of third-party software installed, but I can't find which of it is causing the problem. Looking in /var/log/dpkg.log.2 shows up the efforts I made to fix a small annoyance caused by gstreamer-tools, but nothing to do with the attempted distribution upgrade.

    Any ideas where else I should be looking?

    Do you have any ppa's installed, that almost always causes issues and they have to be commented out.

    look in
    etc/apt/sources.list
    You may want to backup before editing:

    cp /etc/apt/sources.list ~/sources.list.backup

    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    Ah, yes… thanks for that. I did have a ppa declared.

    In the end, though, I took the same route as for my main computer: installed 11.04 from a downloaded disc, and after that the upgrade over the internet worked.

    Now I have another little problem: I have a nasty clicking noise coming out of the Vaio speakers. When I look in the sound config I see that the output is constantly switching between the built-in speakers and the headphone socket and back again. I've not seen this problem before, not on this hardware or on any other (Linux since 1997, in my household, and on this Vaio since 2008 or 2009).

    Best start a new thread as that is a different issue.
