View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can I reinstall 11.10 update?

October 15th, 2011, 01:06 PM
I am Windows user, new to Ubuntu. My new 11.10 (update from 11.4) is running OK, but there were glitches during install, and some modules "could not install." Let me list the glitches:

1. Dozens of "error adding" /etc/ssl/certs/ *.pem (extension files - whatever they are).
2. "could not install" openswan-modules-dkms
"could not install" libglade 2.0-cil
3. message with some programs : "kernel source for this kernel not installed."
and "linux headers missing" (Synaptic says don't install these directly from here.)
4. As with 11.4, my wireless FAILS to connect with pae kernel, DOES connect with generic. Why?
5. I am getting frequent panic screens, when screen turns into white-on-black text, forcing me to reboot.
So, should I reinstall the update to 11.10? a) If so, how? b) will the update recognize that some parts were done OK and skip those parts and install only the ones that failed?
Thanks in advance.

some times your graphics driver need update after a upgrade.
so better to boot into recovery mode and then to failsafex or low graphics mode then update your graphics drivers.

and post me the output of
sudo apt-get update also

all the best

How do I capture the output from the terminal, so I can post it for you. Type exactly what I need to do. (I said I am new at this.)

Hi its a graphics issue too. I told you that you have graphics driver improper installation , so please install your drivers again.

All The best.

You say "it" is a graphics issue. What is a graphics issue? The install problems I listed do not refer to problems with graphics. I never had to install any graphics drivers, and my screen shows fine: no complaints on that front. I thought you were trying to help me with AT LEAST 1) why my wireless does not connect with pae kernel, but does with generic, OR 2) how to rebuild the openswan and/or libglade modules that failed during installation. Other than these, my 11.10 runs great. I like it. Thanks for your help.
