linuxmce_macmini_2010_4_1:linuxmce_1204_upgrade

Upgrade LinuxMCE 10.04 to 12.04

after changing sources in /etc/apt/source.list to precise i did a few additional steps because “sudo apt-get dist-upgrade” failed because of the following error:

E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'python2.7-minimal'.Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)

What i had to do to fix all the issues:

Force “default-jre-headless” to install

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/default-jre-headless_1%3a1.6-43ubuntu2_i386.deb
sudo apt-get install -o APT::Immediate-Configure=false -f apt python-minimal

Run dist-upgrade

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -o APT::Immediate-Configure=0

MySQL issue:

sudo touch /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.mysqld

Edit /etc/mysql/my.cnf

remove all lines containing

default-character-set=utf8

Edit /etc/upnpd.conf

comment out

#upnp_log_filename = ""; 

edit /etc/default/linux-igd

WRONG!! == This might be related to my Apple USB-Ethernet Adapter (used driver: asix)

DOH DOH DOH! This issue was related to a not connected Apple USB-Ethernet Adapter

change

INTIFACE=eth0

to

INTIFACE=eth1

ISSUE: Grub does not want to boot

SOLUTION: Set timer in /etc/default/grub to boot default after X seconds
