    [ubuntu] Re: No login screen

    Looks like your display manager (GDM) is starting and stopping. Try going back to the default after you log into the terminal:

    Do you mean 12.04? If that's the case, either of these should work.

    For openjdk6:

    sudo apt-get update

    Oh wow, now that is old! That's definitely not strong enough to run Ubuntu. Your best bet is running a distro like feather (it's discontinued, but considering your hardware it might be what you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu has been very slow. Any suggestions on how to make it faster?

    Alright. This might be a graphics driver issue. Is it slow when running multiple non-graphics intensive apps (eg browsers, word processors, email clients)? Also, let us know if you get lag when...

    Eh, lots of videos are biased. If you use a modern desktop environment, it's really not much faster than Windows. Anyway, are you saying web pages load slowly, or are you saying the system is slow...

  15. Re: MySql Login Problem in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Platform

    The root account is empty by default. Just hit enter and you should be able to log in. That said, it's better to set up a root password:

    That's a dilly of a pickle. You should probably ask if there's a way to achieve this functionality with the binary nvidia drivers on their forums: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/98/linux/...
