Hello good forum,
I recently installed Ubuntu along with windows 7 on a laptop. I don't have to use my CD but I know it's not a full version of Ubuntu that I installed.
i burned the ISO from the home site to disk and installed. all is working well; however, i have a few questions:
if this is a limited version, what things would i not be able to do?
i'm having trouble gaining root (if i use the su, or sudo commands) i receive an error message after typing in my password. Should i be able to have root access with the a limited version/installation?
i don't see how to mnt my C drive which has some windows files i'd like access to from the command line-when i switch to the /mnt folder, i do not see any drives listed after doing a ls command
will it be much easier if i completely switch my laptop over to Ubuntu?
I don't like 7 at all and i've lost my installation cd for XP
i was only using XP for my music.
Seeking and open to suggestions:
I'd like to switch completely over to Ubuntu. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it, a desktop full of viruses with XP on it (without the installation cd) dua processor decent desktop once i get the viruses off) and a much older desktop. I was thinking of creating a home network for the learning experience and maybe as a server for online gaming/one to back up files etc
i actually would love to have a linux system set up as a Digital Recording Workstation. I have (hard ware-Mbox 2 pro) and Pro Tools LE 7 (older version) and Reason 4.0
I read about WINE but haven't to use it yet.
i'm looking at using Reason Record, Reason 5 and Recycle. i want to make sure that i can get ubuntu working with this setup. i forum had a driver uploaded for the mbox 2 pro i found. However, he can mention USB and the Mbox 2 Pro uses firewire. I will need to use fire wire also.
so my main question is what would you suggest i do about my little situation.
