    [ubuntu] Re: problem when using update manager

    Most repositories provide the key as a cryptic number (you'll most likely see it in the error itself, or you can google the repository and see if the key shows up somewhere.) Once you get the key,...

    [ubuntu] Re: problem when using update manager

    This is meaningless. It simply means you haven't installed the repository's signing key. No biggie. I get well over a dozen of these errors whenever I update my sources since I have a lot of third...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ram not recognized

    It's also possible that your computer doesn't fully recognize RAM sticks greater than 512 MB. While 2.0 GB are recognized, perhaps only 1.5 GB total are available. In that case, you can see if...

    Re: 4 vs 8 gb ram

    Excuse me? You solicited my opinion when you opened a thread entitled "4 GB vs. 8 GB." This implies you're seeking input, which I provided. So, it appears you actually will use a lot of RAM;...

    Please don't fall into the trap that more is necessarily better. Trust me when I inform you that you will hardly notice any difference going from 4 GB to 8 GB of RAM. Unless you're rendering...

    [ubuntu] Re: Widescreen issues ubuntu 9.04

    Hello! Use the following as your xorg.conf file. Since you and I both have Nvidia cards and wide screen monitors, you should be able to get away with using my xorg.conf file.

    You said it correctly in your first sentence: "I think it may be a few more years before I'm ready to make the full switch from XP to Linux..." I take issue, however, where you go on to say that...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Currently have 9.04 on laptop, need to go back to XP.

    It's really sad when people make their first tentative steps into the world of Linux but then run back to Windows at the very first sign that "OMG!! Something is different!!!" I'm not sure what...

    *** Bump ***

    Okay, I tried reinstalling the RC and VirtualBox crashes. I also tried the 2.6.31-RC5 and 2.6.30.5 Kernels to no avail. I also downgraded my Nvidia driver from 190.18.3 to 180.60 to...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: VirtualBox shuts down computer during Win7 RTM install

    Excellent suggestion. Also, I've updated to the 2.6.31-RC6 Kernel and was able to reproduce the crash. I'm also going to poke about in the logs to see if I can learn any clue. Thanks.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: how do i increase the partition size that i have ubuntu installed on?

    Use your Ubuntu Live CD to boot your machine. Then use Gparted to shrink the XP partition by X GB. Then, simply expand the Ubuntu partition by the same X GB. Be careful! Make sure you backup any...

    From what I can see from what you posted, you still haven't added the resolution you want to your xorg.conf file. Here's what mine looks like so you can see the difference. Ubuntu 9.04+ uses a very...

    [kubuntu] Re: Boots fine, but won't load Plasma Workspace

    [ubuntu] Re: Different packages in apt-get vs. Synaptic

    Synaptic is merely a GUI to manage your packages, but, it does have some filtering ability which I suspect is the reason you see only a subset of packages to which you can actually access. Go into...
