  1. [ubuntu] Re: Transferring data files from Jaunty install to Lucid install

    For future reference, I would set up a separate partition to use as your "home". Then it makes no difference what updates/upgrades you do, your data is always there and unchanged. I am using 10.10...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Using wifi products from Ubuquiti (Picostation)

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Login name missing from users and groups

  9. [SOLVED] Re: Login name missing from users and groups

    I assume from the deafening silence that I am the only one having this problem. This is also a shameless bump message.

    [ubuntu] Re: Issues with a new partition

    I'm not sure what you mean by data. Linux keeps most of its "data" in the home directory. If you mean to use the new partition for home it needs to be mounted as "/home" As the home partition you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Howto: Install Virtualbox on Jaunty?
