  1. [SOLVED] Re: 12.04 update and 14.04 installation causing Dell computers to freeze at login

  2. [SOLVED] 12.04 update and 14.04 installation causing Dell computers to freeze at login

    I run multiple versions of linux on different boxes, usually without problems, uncluding Ubuntu, Ubuntu Studio, Elementary OS, CentOS, and Debian. I back everything up before I upgrade. Upgrade to...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: upgrading 8.04 LTS > 8.10 > 9.04 breaks network manager applet

    Alright, now I feel like an idiot. I have a separate partition for /home already set up ... just didn't occur to me that I could do the alternate install and do it that way.

    Thanks.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: upgrading 8.04 LTS > 8.10 > 9.04 breaks network manager applet

    Also, uninstalling the Applet, then re-installing it, does NOT make the problem go away, which I find interesting.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: upgrading 8.04 LTS > 8.10 > 9.04 breaks network manager applet

    That's probably what I will have to do. It's a hassle, because there are six different users on the system and backing it up is about 120 GB .. a lot of photos. I have an external 160 GB hard disk,...

    I studied Spanish for four years of high school, one course in university. However, I've been to Puerto Rico, Spain, Panama, and Honduras .... and had to use my Spanish in all of those places, so my...
  10. Re: what do you think about this "Is Ubuntu slowly dying?'

    I agree that it's not dying ... at least not here.

    I installed Dapper Drake on an older system and gave it to a college student who happened to be a patient of mine. I loaned another system to a...
  11. Re: what do you think about this "Is Ubuntu slowly dying?'

    My own views differ from those above. I am also someone who would like to see, and support, some proprietary software for linux systems.
