  1. Re: BitTorrent clients not working (even Transmission)

    Can you give an example of a torrent you are trying to base a download on? Perhaps you could get an Xubuntu torrent and see how that works.

    In order, the most likely components to cause grief because they are "the latest and greatest" are the motherboard, WiFi and video. It's easy to find a motherboard which has been available for...
  3. Re: Cannot get Ubuntu Installation on USB to boot.

    When you remove the Live USB and reboot, the USB with the installed Ubuntu is no longer SDC.

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop slow after upgrade to 17.10, is my hardware too old?

    +1. The i3 is plenty fast enough to run current applications well. You should run top or htop to figure out what is consuming so much memory.
  7. Re: What's the best way to upgrade from 12.04 to 18.04?

    There are two great suggestions above: try a Live USB or Live DVD to check that the computer will work with a current OS, and install onto a new hard drive. Also consider Xubuntu, Lubuntu or Ubuntu...

  13. Re: Ubuntu keeps crashing on me - not sure what the cause is

    Then it's not overheating.

    When my desktop randomly crashed, it turned out to be an ACPI issue, but it often ran for a few days before crashing.

    Re: help a newcomer - new kernel

    If you are using the 4.10 kernel, I think that means you are running Ubuntu (or one of the family members) 17.04, which is no longer supported. You need to do a dist-upgrade to 17.10.

    But first,...
  17. Re: Ubuntu keeps crashing on me - not sure what the cause is

    To see the actual temperatures, install lm-sensors. Then run:
    sudo sensors-detect

    Re: can't install Ubuntu on SSD

    Ubuntu is a poor choice for such an old computer. I have heard that Lubuntu is much better, but I would probably just install Puppy Linux and use the old thing for browsing. I'm pretty sure that the...
