    I'm no expert but you might try System/Administration/Hardware Drivers and let it look for a better driver. Then select and activate the one labeled "recommended" if it is not already active. If that...

    Re: partimage not in 64bit repos

    [ubuntu] Re: USB Drive Only?

    For what it is worth, my own limited experience with used hard drives is 100% good. Could be because the used ones were older drives. I've had several drives fail on me but those were ALL drives I...
  9. [SOLVED] Gparted & mount info conflict - FSArchiver at fault?

    Gparted tells me sdb1, which is another ubuntu installation, is mounted as /tmp/fsa/20110424-still-more-numbers-I-can't-copy-n-paste while bash gives me this information:

  15. [wubi] Re: virus, spyware, malware, etc. do i need protection?

    Isn't WUBI just a windows based installer for Ubuntu? Meaning isn't it just another way of installing a normal ubuntu installation? Wouldn't your reservation be more applicable to an ubuntu...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: I want to switch. this is what i have any problems?
