    Re: FIrefox and Thunderbird are dead after the latest update 10.04

    marcosc1, gtalbott, ShowMeGrrl, Randy M and squrl, that's five with the same problem. I'm not going to repeat my comments everywhere.

    You should still be able to upgrade to 12.04 which is supported until April 2017 and use this guide to get real close to a classic look and feel:

    Or do a fresh install of 14.04 which is supported until April 2019, and do basically the same thing:

    You offer nothing to answer the original question.
    If I wanted 14.04 it would have been installed a long time ago. I did install Debian a few hours ago ending my time with ubuntu. It will take some time to get comfortable with it. It has been several years back to ubuntu release 6. All good things must come to an end.

    Thank You.

    latest kernel update - video problem

    After I executed the latest update with update manager today, which installed kernel 2.6.32-61-generic, nothing that has to do with video still works. Flashplayer freezes Firefox, Virtualbox freezes at 20% during the start of the virtual machine and even VLC loads a video but then doesn't run. I don't know if this offers a clue to the problem, but when I run VLC from a terminal, I get the following (error?) message:
    [0x1719888] mainlibvlc: Running VLC with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
    [0x1d04b88] pulse audio output: No. of Audio Channels: 2
    QPainter::begin: Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 1
    QPainter::begin: Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 1
    I searched for that last error message, but only found cases that had to do with programming, which I don't do.
    Does anybody know what may be wrong and what can be done about it or how to further research the problem?

    Re: 10.04 LTS kernel upgrade to 2.6.32-61

    Same problem here, after upgrading to 2.6.32-61.124_amd64 there is no sound whatsoever. Any application that tries to play a sound hangs, such as Skype, chromium when trying to play a music video in youtube, totem, vlc, etc.

    I opened "Sound preferences", everything seemed normal (hardware identified), but there was no application coming up in the applications tab when trying to play a sound with a particular software, totem for example.

    Bug has been confirmed here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1327220

    Solution so far, hold down the SHIFT key while booting, choose a previous kernel, such as 2.6.32-60.

    Actually Debian has (from release to the end of security updates) a total lifetime of about 3 years. source: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianReleases
    So the advice to upgrade has nothing to do with Ubuntu. But if you want Debian instead of upgrading to a more recent release of Ubuntu, well, your reasons are the only that count.

    Re: removing updates

    Indeed, I didn't answer the original question, because it was the wrong question to ask. It happens all the time here. Without realising I think, you asked something like: "How can I make sure I run outdated versions of software, because the up-to-date versions don't cooperate well with my other outdated software?" So I told you to stop using Lucid Lynx. If you prefer a supported release of Debian over one of Ubuntu, that's fine with me. Could you please mark this thread as solved?

    Re: latest kernel update - video problem

    Kernel version 2.6.32-61-generic?

    Which version of Ubuntu are you using? The oldest version that is still supported had kernel 3.2, so I presume you must have an old unsupported Ubuntu version.

    Is this perhaps the last of one of the 10.04 servers still running?

    Threads merged again.

    It surprises me that so many people are running a system which only copes with threats as they were known in April 2013.

    The black hats have had more than a year to learn how to break into 10.04.
