Mandriva the upgrade 2010.2 to 2011

Postby viking60 » 17 Sep 2011, 22:07

Ok I have made a backup of my entire box with redo
Windows and Mandriva. It tooke about 4h.
I am mainly a gnome user.
At some point I paid for the powerpack but I don't anymore. That applet keeps notifying me that there is an update - and when I click it I have no access. So I do not have that update after all :-D
Now I thought I should try an upgrade by changing my repos. You can find my hardware in the signature. This is the real deal and I thought i'd share it with you.
Any tips to avoid me falling on my nose are welcome (please hurry!).........
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Arch+yaourt on the server - Arch on the laptop.

Nobody? Ah you would all love to see me falling on my nose - wouldn't you? OK here we go removing my old repos:
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi.removemedia -av
......
And then I noticed that the wiki is rather scarce with information:
http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2011.0_Notes#Introduction
"Add 2011.repositories"
Yeah right! how? where? If I do it in MCC it will only add the 2010 repos again.
Oh well I have been around long enough to remember http://easyurpmi.zarb.org so I just go there and do my 2011 clicks.....
Ok That worked so I added the restricted repo that has replaced Plf:
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi.addmedia --update MDV-restricted_64 http://mirror.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2011.0/64/projects/restricted/

I had a final look at the repos in MCC and... did http://easyurpmi.zarb.org only add 32 bit repos to my 64bit system?
Well I am not sure so I removed all my repos and started to add them from here in stead:
http://urpmi.mandriva.ru/index_64.html
Ok Done all that going for the update now with:
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi --auto --auto-update --replacefiles 2>&1 | tee upgrade.log


I got some warnings about illegal signatures.
warning: /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/lib64freetype6-2.4.6-69.2-mib2011.0.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID f81d50ae

Not very impressive, but I guess it is no show stopper. ......
So it is time to reboot now and after that everything should be perfectly upgraded :pray:
....
And nothing has changed this is still Mandriva 2010.2 :f
Code: Select all
:( cat /etc/release
Mandriva Linux release 2010.2 (Official) for x86_64
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Arch+yaourt on the server - Arch on the laptop.

OK time to try a different approach then:
Changing the content of /etc/release from
Mandriva Linux release 2010.2 (Officia) for x86_64
to
Mandriva Linux release 2011.0 (Official) for x86_64
removing all the repos with
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi.removemedia -av

Going to MCC and trying to add the official repos....
That worked!
Adding restricted (plf) again:
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi.addmedia --update MDV-restricted_64 http://mirror.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2011.0/64/projects/restricted/

Rebooting :pray:

So sad. :(

I tried similar, remember the
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto --auto-update --replacefiles 2>&1 | tee upgrade.log
instruction. Would not even boot. I wonder about all the MIB stuff I had installed for 2010.2 and, moreso, the transition from rpm4 to rpm5, which was attended by much wailing and gnashing of teeth @cooker mailing list leading up to the release of 2011. I itch, a little, to bound forward into .......

Yeah that wiki does not work: let's see if I can land this one.
The reboot showed no change but then again I had not updated so I did a
Code: Select all
sudo urpmi --auto-update -v

Getting a shitload of wrong signature errors and answering yes to everything to get through the update......
and time to reboot again...... :pray:
It just does not complete the process due to a lot of dependencies. I agree with you:
Rosalab?

One Guru-Berserk and one Über-Berserk coming to the same conclusion; That is definitely not good news for our Russian friends.
Mandriva 2011 works when installing from scratch. But upgrading is fubared. Restoring my backup and going for a lot of whiskey. :berserkf

:lam Back again from a lot of Whiskey with a royal pain in the head (I shall never drink again). And after this experience I will boycott Vodka for sure! +1
I am not sure what to do now :confused So for the first time I am seriously thinking about replacing Mandriva.
But I will hold my horses for now and just continue with 2010.2

Don't do drugs! :T

I'm not sure what to think. There are, apparently, some/many who have a working installation of 2011 and some/many who can't make that happen. :confused

I will try again, when I have enough free time. An interesting comment @ forum.mandriva.com

Yes That is not a good sign. On the other hand they have a paid forum moderator and that is new.
But all in all I have a bad feeling about this.
Doing new and innovative stuff is fine. But doing it in a way that it is not compatible with your own product is kind of suicide. They get a lot of customers with fresh installs. But they loose all the old ones.
Sad - we really need Mandriva in the Linux world. A good Mandriva.

It is in "Norwegian" but you get the general idea.

You don't have any backports on the 2010.2 installation, do you?

I don't think so. I had powerpack repos that were not accessible. Right now I am playing arround with it after the update fubared. I just rebooted and it keeps updating. I am curious what happens next. Probably the same error but it is worth a shot......
I actually thought I should convert my home to Arch (well and install Arch of course) when I decided to see what hapens when rebooting a failed 2010.2 upgrade.
It is doing a gui upgrade now. Will be interesting to see if the rpm database is functional etc etc.
Maybe I have not been persistant enough :-D
