  1. Re: Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    I'm willing to try anything-- honestly, half the fun of linux for me has been trying different distros and even just different desktops, exploring around and trying new things and learning new...
  2. Re: Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    Thanks, but no thanks. Windows 7 is what I left behind for Ubuntu, and I am NOT going back. :|

    As for the other replies: thanks, everyone! I've decided that I'm going to set up a dual-boot...
  3. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Ah, that makes sense. I'll have to try and figure out where the problem lies... I'm not terribly experienced with troubleshooting in linux yet, but thank you for the information!
  4. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Thank you, and I will definitely do that. I'm also going to make a new partition on my hard drive and I might try dual-booting with some other linux-based OSs to see if something else plays more...
  5. Re: Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    Yeah, Ubuntu has given me more problems than Windows ever did, and this is speaking as someone who used Windows for the first decade of my young nerd life. I mean, I'd still rather use Ubuntu than...
  6. Re: Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    Thanks so much for all the information! I've managed to get my usual OS to boot now, at least, but I'm going to make a new partition and give some other things a try anyway. This will definitely be...
  7. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to let you know that I checked the root partition in gparted and apparently there was some damage there, and I'm able to boot up my OS now! Thank you so much,...
  8. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Yes, that's what I ended up having to do, unfortunately. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give that a try and see what happens. Hopefully it'll be something fixable, because I'd really rather not...
  9. Re: Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    I actually don't know all that much about mint, but I wouldn't be against giving it a shot if it's more stable than Ubuntu's been for me. Fedora and Debian were my main picks primarily because I...
  10. Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Hi, all. I'm posting this from a live disk because, as of the moment, my Ubuntu 12.04 install refuses to boot. I'm not... entirely sure why. I was playing Silent Hill 2: DX through wine, and it...
  11. Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?

    For some reason, it seems that Ubuntu and I just weren't meant to be. Today marks the second time that it has crashed on me, completely out of nowhere, and refused to boot to the point that I have...

    Oh, thank you! Yes, I have definitely learned my lesson about backing up before you upgrade. From here on out I'll be more careful. Thanks again.

    Won't that get rid of everything I had on the hard drive? :( Gosh... well, thank you for the guidance.

    I apologize for any grammatical mistakes, I have to post this from my phone. I upgraded from Oneric Ocelot to Precise Pangolin last night, and now my computer completely refuses to boot. It acts...

    ... welp, seems I figured out the problem: I uninstalled and reinstalled PCSXR from the repo instead of from the software manager, and it works perfectly just with the default plugins. IGNORE ME,...

    This is a good idea, and I'm trying to, but for some reason, my emulator refuses to recognize any other plugins. They don't even show up on the dropdown menu. Am I putting them in the wrong folder...

    PSP? I'm not sure what you mean. As in the portable Playstation system, or is that the name of an emulator? And if it is the name of the system, that is absolutely NOT in my budget right now,...
