So I'm playing around with offline package installation on 12.04 Server, having downloaded packages by retrieving and wgetting their URIs using the instructions here: http://www.webupd8.org/2009/11/get-list-of-packages-and-dependencies.html
I did this with apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade, then went about installing the downloaded packages using dpkg -i.
I was using UCK to customize an Ubuntu 11.10 image, and ran a dist-upgrade on it (from the console) to try to update all of the packages on it. The upgrade worked successfully for all but two packages, so I tried again and got the same error message. This is what happened:
# sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information...
My system is fully dist-upgraded, and a dist-upgrade was done this evening. A reboot was indicated when it finished, and I rebooted. After logging back in I launched Kontact and it immediately crashed.
Hi. I'm new here. I've had this problem on Ubuntu as well (12.04 and 13.04). After a fresh install and an update and dist-upgrade, the monitor doesn't get a signal when I reboot. It loses it after the BIOS screens. This might be because of firmware issues with my onboard graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3000. It's not supported that well. I don't really know what to do.
