  1. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 - Upgrade did not complete

    Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately recovery mode would not start, it just went to the flickering, garbled log in screen like the standard boot. And still had no response to mouse or...
  2. [ubuntu] Upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 - Upgrade did not complete

    Upgrading from 11.10 to 12.04, the upgrade process seemed to be going OK, until it stopped on a particular item. The computer did not crash but the upgrade process simply stopped doing anything (no...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Various window border problems since changing to AMD graphics card! (11.10)

    Just as an update if it's of interest to anyone. I removed the ATI proprietary driver and installed the open source Radeon driver (Gallium?), and it's working much better for me. It actually seems...

    [ubuntu] Re: cannot execute binary file

    I think it goes deeper than that, it's more a case of MIPS binaries are not going to be able to be run by your CPU, without some sort of emulator. It's a completely different CPU from x86...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Various window border problems since changing to AMD graphics card! (11.10)

    Thanks, yes I could do that but would rather not :( The reason for ATI was because I've had a couple of hardware failures of Nvidia cards in the past year or two (this was to replace a broken...

    [ubuntu] Re: How do I install - MLT ver 0.7.6

    Re: 64 or 32?

    I prefer x86-64 as I think it causes less confusion than AMD64, but the reason for the AMD64 name is that AMD created the 64 bit extensions for x86 processors. Intel later adopted the standard (in...

    Re: Windows 7 update = hardware issues

    Windows updates can't cause hardware problems like a failed graphics card. They also won't install to an external drive (they need to be installed to your main drive to replace the files they are...
  12. Poll: Re: How many people use Ubuntu with Gnome-shell in stead of Unity?

    Out of the two, Unity for me, but there's not much in it. I think Unity looks better, but they are close in functionality. I find Unity is much improved in Oneric compared to the version supplied...

    [ubuntu] Re: Are two swap partitions needed?

    Thanks. Yes you're right, I can't believe how cheap RAM is at the moment. 8gb DDR3 is about half the price I paid for 4Gb at start of 2010. And RAM prices are cyclical so best to buy when it's...

    I've noticed that there are two swap partitions in Ubuntu. I was just wondering why that was, is it normal, and if both are not needed is it possible to "reclaim" the space from one of them? I.e....

    Just checked and I have "read/write NTFS driver for FUSE - ntfs-3g 1:2011.4.12AR.4-2ubuntu3" installed. So that's not there by default then? I didn't manually add it. Perhaps the Ubuntu installer...
