I tried but they had already closed it. It was overdue for an overhaul. I like what they did though.
I like the new Ubuntu Forums site redesign. That is all.
How did you make the ISO? If you didn't use a method that makes true images then most likely it did not copy the hidden, copy-protected tracks of the CD. The installer is probably looking for these....
Just to be clear:
sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/d2install.iso /media/d2install
Yes, that would be a good idea. If you are in the same directory with the ISO you shouldn't need to, but it certainly can't hurt. You're not really frustrating me, so don't worry about it.
Well, I'm only guessing at this point but I would say that you either are not in the right directory with the ISO, mistyped the filename, or mistyped your password.
I've done all of these many...
You have spaces in the name of the ISO file. Either rename the file or use escape characters in your mount statement. I would suggest renaming the file without spaces because it's much easier. You...
If it was me, I would do something along the lines of:
Open a terminal
sudo mkdir /media/whatever
sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop name_of_iso_to_be_mounted /media/whatever
I don't think you're whining. Just use two entire computers. I do. Pretty much all the time, and I usually run one for games and such, and another for surfing and work. It's easy with a router.
@eric.proctor I've been trying out the new Xubuntu and I like it better than any other one I've seen. It's much lighter now, and quite hackable. I got compiz running without too much trouble and the...
Sorry to hear that it happened that way, but it's good to know Ubuntu runs well in VirtualBox. I've had people freak out when I've run my USB key Linux on their computers even though I was doing it...
The solution is simple. get VirtualBox or whatever Mac uses for a VM and run Ubuntu in a VM. That way, if you Dad says anything, then tell him "I am running MacOS."
If I might ask, why?
If you just need the diagramming part I'd suggest Dia.
I built a PC inside a tomato crate one time. We called it the Tomato. Fun was had.
There is a Java version of HJSplit. You start it in a terminal with a command like :
java -jar hjsplit_g.jar
Or right click on the jar file and choose Open with > your_version_of_java
It is pretty funny. I'm sorry I even know how to get rid of one of these. :lolflag:
@dtfinch: That is exactly how I found that one. It took about ten seconds. Even if you disable something that you want, you can just re-enable it later. My way is safe and easy.
@wilee-nilee: I do...
Yeah, with a name like that I'm sure it's really great. /s
Anyway, did you even read what I wrote? I used Windows itself to fix it. He's got a TROJAN!!! not a virus. It's easily fixed without...
And running some dodgy junk from the web is somehow better?
I cleaned one of these off of a friends machine by first determining the name of the process. To do that, I simply ran msconfig and looked for any suspicious names that were running at start-up....
Shock Treatment isn't nearly as good and it's barely a "sequel". I love Rocky Horror, though.
Boot up with the live cd, mount the drive and then edit the kernel lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst to include the ACPI=OFF switch. If the live cd boots this way then the the installed OS should too. You...
I don't know if this helps, but I just tried that news server address and it wanted a user name and password. I'm not on Cox cable, but that server is no longer "open".
