View Full Version : [ubuntu] Issues with Update Manager and Sound/Network

May 10th, 2009, 08:35 PM
Well, I'm a new user of Ubuntu, I'm still using 8.04, and I recently upgraded from one kernel variant to a newer one. Problem is, my system killed my sound drivers (not a good thing when you're using the compy as an audio rig!) and my network interfaces are now... well who the hell knows where they are, but it can't see them.

So I went into the older kernel variant (which has - yay - sound and network) to upgrade the system again (and to get some drivers and other updates for my programs). Only issue now is, power outage and the system died mid-update. Now, I still have the sound and network issue, and now I can't even run the update manager!

Can any one help?

Hi, boot into your old kernel and open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and type

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgradeIf any error out post the output.
