    [ubuntu] Re: RR Boot Time

    I find the same RR is very slow to boot. At least 2 minutes on my Sony Viao Laptop.
    It seems to get slower with every release.
    Can wee hope that it will speed up?

    As far as I am aware your router sorts all that out for you. You should not have to make any changes in Ubuntu. Someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Hello Chris
    Try this: boot to recovery mode and you should get a menu and then choose "Fix Broken Packages" or you could drop to a root terminal and type

    [SOLVED] Re: Application to write music

    You could try Rosegarden which is a comprehensive MIDI editor. Not sure about the guitar notation, but you could look at the Manual http://rosegardenmusic.com/wiki/doc:manual-en for help.
    Good luck.

    [ubuntu] Re: i/o error while booting livecd

    You cannot upgrade directly from 10.04 to 11.10, you have to go through from 10.04 to 10.10 then to 11.04 then to 11.10. If you did not do this then a clean install is probably the only option.

    Download and install "Startup Manager" (it is in the repositories).This allows you to set what starts first and the resolution of the grub screen.
