    [ubuntu] Re: Broken Packages

    Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Make sure you close synaptic first before you run those two commands from a terminal.

    Make sure you unpack one file at a time instead of doing both on the same line.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unpacking .gtgz file

    Looks to me like you have a bad download. Remove the current version on your machine and download it again.

    I didn't have any problem unpacking it on my machine.

    If you change the directories to rw only, then you cannot change to them. What you want for directories are rwx--7. Meanwhile, files can be rw--6.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't mount NTFS in 9.10

    Stop the antivirus from scanning that external drive. Then, safely remove from windows before you unplug it.

    Otherwise, run the ntfsfix and mount it after that to see if that works.

    It depends on the speed of your machine. On an ~1h30m movie, it takes me less than 2 hours to convert .avi to .iso.

    Re: Completely clear hard drive

    Swapoff is what you have to run to unmount the swap partition. Then, click the last partition and remove it. Then move on the next one until the whole harddrive is unallocated.
