    I highly recommend sticking to the prescription given because this is what happens when you don't follow the doctor's orders. What are you talking about. What do you want to know?

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade

    Matters not how many programs to upgrade.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install Ubuntu Server from external USB optical drive

    If it can see the usb cd drive to boot from then it can boot from a flash drive i'm betting. How did you put it on a flash drive? Unetbootin or any other program in my experience was a waste of time....

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Best to upgrade to 14.04 from? 12.04 or 13.10?

    13.10. If everything was perfect it wouldn't really matter but being that it is a new machine you want the latest hardware support available.

  10. Re: Permanent CIFS mount + different users

    I don't think you can, at least with the fstab. It gets read well before any user login or selection takes place. What is the endgame here? Each user have their own directory on the server? What are...

    Poll: Re: Is Ubuntu very buggy compared to Debian?

    Ubuntu pulls from Debian sid and whatever testing happens to be at the time. So naturally it will be a bit more buggy. There is a reason Debian stable is just that... stable. The software is old and...

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Proposed 64GB SSD and 1TB HDD partitioning plan for new build. Comments please

  18. [SOLVED] Re: Samba share not accessible after apt-update and reboot

  21. [SOLVED] Re: Proposed 64GB SSD and 1TB HDD partitioning plan for new build. Comments please
