28th June updates have upset the system (Solved)

Postby Ralf1e on Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:07 am

Hello all, Today I updated through mint update which put a lot of packages on including the Vdpau-Driver for graphics. It also seems to has removed the Nvidia 173 driver or done something with it.
After the updates I have a black screen after start up and I have a system that can not recognise a camera it has been working with every day.
The only way I could get into the system was to use a previous kernel shown in the grub menu.
Does anyone else have this problem and is there a cure for the damage the updates have done.
Help!

Hello Ralf,

i think, what after that update you are missing is the package 'linux-headers-2.6-686-pae' if you are using a 32bit system.
Boot the previous kernel, install the package and run

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

in the terminal.
I believe in everything, except humans.

Hello Gerd50,
I had already tried the 'linux-headers-2.6-686-pae' and had no success so I had to do a complete install from scratch and then do the upgrades I had already tried the terminal upgrade with no success so ended up re-installing from disk then doing the terminal upgrades and even after that the mint upgrade put over 700 packages on. I give up trying to understand it all, but it is now working and I have a screen to look at and I have at last found the answer to the camera problem as well by changing the downloader and listing the camera model in the files.
I also found out that shotwell can rename the files to lowercase as it imports them which answers another problem.
Thank's for the reply I shall now mark this as solved
