You may already know this, but the command:
apt-cache madison <package-name>
will show you the different URLs that would be used (in order of preference)
to fetch each package, and you can install a specific version of a package
by installing package=version instead of just package, eg:
apt-get install libglu=9.0.0-2
That should get you started on the road to fixing your system.
Your hardware may be 64 bit capable (in fact these days on x86 it would be surprising if it were not) but that looks like a 32 bit kernel you are runnig there. Try the 32 bit version of the installer instead.
I just installed the "Graphics Installer 1.08 for Ubuntu* 14.10, 64bit" a little while ago. Is there something I am suppose to do besides this? I tried typing into terminal intel-linux-graphics-installer and it gives me back this..
** (intel-linux-graphics-installer:2148): WARNING **: Could not open X display
No protocol specified
Failed to connect to Mir: Failed to connect to server socket: No such file or directory
(intel-linux-graphics-installer:2148): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
Weird. Are you running the stock ubuntu image? If you start the installer from the dash instead, does it work?
no, im running a minimal install ubuntu with kde display manager.
also, the application menu for KDE does have it listed now that i restarted since i posted about the problem.
i ran it from the menu and at the end it said "9 added, 30 upgraded" so i guess its working now.
Ok. Glad you got it sorted out. I have no idea what could have caused that symptom though.
