    [ubuntu] Hard disk won't mount

    I have a 2.5" 500GB harddisk in a casing that won't mount (or at least cannot be accessed and is not shown in "Disk Usage Analyzer") (and it can't be accessed in Win XP either).

    Wow, ibjsb4, how did you manage to reply to siddi 5.5 hours before (s)he posted the issue!?

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Update Manager: "The package system is broken."

    Siddi, you'd better open your own thread and explain the problems you're encountering there. Posting your problem in another thread makes replying to the different issues very confusing.

    Good luck
