    [ubuntu] Re: Trying[sudo -] password for user

    Yeah man sudo on it's own doesn't do anything.

    something like "sudo deluge" or "sudo gedit /etc/default/grub" or "sudo reboot" will do something - like dead said, you need a command. In these...

    Re: Is WINE bloatware?

    WINE is a translator, not an emulator.

    Re: Old CPU OS?

    ArchBang runs very well on an old laptop I have, so does some old slackware variants I've tried on it. Arch is a little easier to use though, so I stuck with that.

    No, it's not an ubuntu issue per se.

    Though I will say it has become more and more of a problem with newer releases. It's a Samba porting issue I think, but I have given up still on that type of...
