Problem solved. After returning to the problem after a break, I discovered that I was making a typing error. I have Ubuntu installed of a hard-disk partition and it's working. Thanks for the patience and help.


Congratulations! That's great! Now, you can upgrade it to the latest version 16.04.5. ;-)

If you can tell me where to find it hand how to install it, I'll give it a try. Speaking of updates, when I opened Firefox in my current Ubuntu install, it said I needed to update it and I accepted. It appeared to D/L FIrefox 60.x but didn't install it. I haven't located the file it downloaded so I still have the Firefox that is included in the Ubuntu Install.

Firefox 6x isn't available for ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC. If you need more information about Firefox for Linux PowerPC, please look in the following thread:

Firefox and Thunderbird for Linux PPC

You can update your ubuntu MATE 16.04 to 16.04.5 with Synaptic. Please try out Synaptic.

Please note: Linux on AmigaOnes isn't easy to install and you need to learn a lot to administrate this. But if you are able to learn Linux then you can do a lot of great things with it on AmigaOnes.

I bought a CF card but spent several days getting CFE to recognize kernal files on the CF drive. I can boot with the vmlinux-4.18 and vmlinux-4.19-rc2 kernals. However, I can't find Synaptic or ubuntu MATE 16.04.05 files anywhere. Where so I find those?

Hi Xenic,

You can find Synaptic in the menu System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager. If you don't find it there then please install it with

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install synaptic


Cheers,

There is no menu System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager. I booted from the ubuntu DVD and that menu isn't there either. I then booted from my ubuntu hard-drive, opened the Terminal and entered:

sudo apt-get install synaptic

and got this printed in the Terminal:

Reading package lists...Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information...Done
Package snyaptic is not available but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.

I guess I'm just stuck with my current version of ubuntu Mate.

That's the menu I tried. I found a WEB page that explains why I have no Synaptic menu item and how to get it. Here is the page: https://askubuntu.com/questions/874854/package-synaptic-is-not-available-in-ubuntu-16-04

I got Synaptic into my Ubuntu System - Administration menu by doing the following:

I opened "System Settings -> Software and Updates" and checked the "universe" repository.
I opened the Terminal and entered these lines:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install synaptic

I'm not sure if the "upgrade" was necessary but it took a half hour and my ubuntu still works.

I don't see "ubuntu MATE 16.04.05" in Synaptic (or I overlooked it). How do I update 16.04 to 16.04.5 with Synaptic?

Maybe you have already updated to ubuntu MATE 16.04.5 because you used apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. Please post the output of lsb_release -a.

I recently successfully installed Ubuntu-mate on my X1000 on seperate harddrive and it's running fairly well. Unfortunatly it doesn't support 3D my 7700 series graphics card but it seems to work well with Libre Office. Currently running 16.04.1 LTS with Kernel 4.18 installed on the CF card.

I'm running into the same update issues as xeno74 so I'm following along closely. Just wanted to let you know that more than one person is being helped by this thread. Thanks!
