  13. Re: Latest "Ubuntu Base" package push won't install

    It seems to me that the messages are nonsense. They say that to install a package it needs to have a dependency installed that is equal to ( = ) in one case. And greater than or equal to ( >= ) in...

  17. [ubuntu] Re: How to read "ubuntu" file? anf other boot qustions

    I would say that there are conditions that must be met before the word "safely" applies. A "Yes" or "No" answer would put a person in the situation of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing."
