  1. Re: two versions of wine installed and i can't remove either

    Hmm, did you try including the --purge flag with the remove command? That might have positive results.

    Also, you might try removing multiple files at once, i.e.


    sudo apt-get --purge wine...
  2. Re: Can't install wine. Crazy dependency problem?

    Yeah, I had this problem too, when I was trying to install wine from the website.

    What I had to do was


    sudo apt-get remove --purge wine wine1.4

    then, for good measure,

    [ubuntu] Dual Boot from USB stick?

    Hello all. I have a question to throw into the arena. (If this issue has already been addressed/resolved, kindly point me in the right direction.)

    I want to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but I...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: I really want to install Ubuntu, but can't seem to make it work

    I am dual-booting with Windows 7. I now have 10.04 running fine, so I am just going to leave it. I have read [here and outside this forum] that people are having all kids of issues with the Maverick...

    UPDATE:

    Well, I thought I had ruined my computer. I upgraded 10.04 to 10.10 as I stated in my previous post, then rebooted, to a hung computer! Would not boot from HD, CD, nor USB! I was down....
  6. [ubuntu] Re: I really want to install Ubuntu, but can't seem to make it work

    So here's how I did it (finally!):

    I installed 9.10 64-bit from disc. Then, I had to plug in to LAN to upgrade to 10.04 from update manager. After that, I had to upgrade to 10.10 by following the...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: I really want to install Ubuntu, but can't seem to make it work

    :-( no dice. I successfully installed 9.10 64-bit, but it had no out-of-the-box wireless connectivity for my Realtek RTL8191SE wifi card. Anyway, that wasn't the objective. So I popped in the 10.10...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: I really want to install Ubuntu, but can't seem to make it work

    You were right. I tried the alternate 64-bit dvd image - no luck. I am now going to install an older 64-bit version - say 9.04 or 9.10 - then use the 64-bit 10.10 disc as an upgrade media. That would...

    Now that is not the attitude to bring to a help forum, bro! You have to remember that these good folks are not ignoring you, they are trying to help!

    Okay, with that said, I am having the same...

  13. Re: Windows 7 is enough to kill Linux on the desktop?

    VirusES, then, heh heh.

    I will admit that I have tri-booted 7 on my Vista/Hardy laptop. Did it last night. I can't really say why, other than to see how a 64-bit OS feels.

    BTW, is that why...
  14. Re: Windows 7 is enough to kill Linux on the desktop?

    Even if Windows 7 could make coffee for you, it's still gonna cost hundreds of dollars, and will still be the target of virii and security attacks.
