View Full Version : [ubuntu] synaptic package manager doesnt function after update to 8.04 lts

Selecting package manager or software sources from admin menu - they attempted to start then gave up without anything showing on screen.

I checked the syslog etc to no avail.

Solution: I needed to add the local machine name and IP to the host file. (hosts in network setup)

I suspect that sudo was failing because of this somewhere in a script.


If this is covered elsewhere please feel free to point readers at that info :)
