    [ubuntu] Re: Airlink AWLL6075

    I'd hazard a guess that you used the apostrophe rather than the backtick (found left of the "1" key). Try it with the backtick key.

    Re: Update Manager Doesn't update system

    The expired sources need to be removed from your /etc/apt/sources.list file (or, at the very least, commented out). You might look for other ppas with your desired "up to date" apps, and if found,...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 boot from disc blackSOD imac g4

    I've a question or two before going any farther (to avoid potential wild-a** guesses): when booting from the cd, you are holding the "c" key down, correct? Thereafter, your display goes totally...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.04 boot from disc blackSOD imac g4

    Since OSX boots, this may not be a resolution, but I had similar problems with a G4 cube "back in the day". What worked for me was to reset the PRAM by holding down the Option, "Open Apple", p and r...
  5. [PPC] Re: Fixing Bugs and Other Problems in Ubuntu on a Macintosh

    I have the same problem with eject on the Cubes. I try to be quick in "grabbing" the CD-R so it doesn't have a chance to retract; sometimes, I'm successful. :-)

    Yes, run in terminal. Yes, the entire list; that's why I suggested use of code tags.

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Not possible to install, remove or upgrade software

    Is there a separate /boot partition? If so, this may be where the "no room" problem is. I'm guessing that your mother-in-law's computer has many kernels installed. If this is so, you should remove...

    Also, if the OP has multiple kernels, deleting an older kernel or kernels using Synaptic will clear space on /boot.

    As it is owned by root, preface the command with sudo. You will then enter your password (no visual feedback), press the enter key, and should carry out the command.

    [ubuntu] Re: Dual boot Osx - Ubuntu; mount ext4 in OSX

    I'd suggest setting up a partition formatted NTFS which gives r/w abilities in both. Not sure in ext3 anymore (don't use OSX at all), but at one time, could read from but not write to ext3 in OSX.

    [ubuntu] Re: Screen Resolution

    Venturing into an area where I have little knowledge or experience is dangerous, but a question: what resolutions are supported by the host system drivers? IIRC, this is a potential limiting factor.

    These are various kernels installed on your system. You may remove them through Synaptic (be sure you do not remove the one to which you are booted). To find out which one this is, run
