Does anyone have a Debian Nightly from 2014? 2015?

Postby brkurt » Tue Aug 23, 2016 4:40 pm

Hello everyone...

I've been given two HP Notebooks from a grateful employer, and the only downside is that they both use the Intel chip which has a Linux bug in it, which I didn't notice until I tried to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 (no dice) or 16.04 (no dice here, either). :shock:

I'd be grateful if I could download a working Debian nightly--or even a tar.gz--from 2014 or 2105, so that I could use these new units.

Thanks in advance... :)

This is kind of a strange request, an outdated nightly of Debian?? Perhaps you could be more specific about this bug: which Intel chip and what happens?

And sorry, this is slightly off topic -> moving it to the latter.

Maybe you could check out the source code from a given date and run the script for producing a deb file? The requirements aren't all that complex to fulfill. I think most stuff is already installed per default in any debian-based system.

The build script for constructing a deb is available in the "buildscripts" directory: https://bitbucket.org/MakeHuman/makehum ... at=default

Many thanks Joepal; I will definitely look into to. Trying to debug an Intel video chip bug in Linux is beyond my skill level.

Must have lost my brain today, ... you were talking about a makehuman package for Debian. Sorry for that ... :oops:

Still out of curiosity: How did you perform the upgrades? These where clean new installations of 14.04 and 16.04?

Since brkurt wasn't talking about getting debian, but rather makehuman, I'll move this topic again. :-)

I'm not sure if I got the problem. Is it the issue I had almost a year ago http://www.makehumancommunity.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12828?

If so, using an older MH won't help. Something changed with the Intel driver. The only option is to use the older Intel driver. I solved my problem by switching to Debian stable, which is famous for outdated software.

My apologies to everyone. I should have typed MH Debian nightly. I only use Debian stable.
It turns out that there were two problems, one is deadly, and one is easy to fix.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

can be solved by installing: intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.1_i386.deb, but it might blow your system up! :o :shock:

the easy one is: gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image

Just hit TAB to get to the menu. :)

Ok, but in your first post you wrote about upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04. Ubuntu is Debian based, but Debian stable is a completely different distro.

Good point. I should have posted: MH 1.1.0 Nightly on Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04. :geek:
