Thanks. I was a bit confused.
I have a Dell Latitude laptop with 10.04 Lynx Ubuntu only on it. Today for some reason it quit being able to get to the internet. When I start FFox or Chrome it comes up with the box checked for...
I'll close this thread for now.
lots of troubles..........
man, oh man. Remember this is an Ubuntu-only machine.
now when I bootup into Ubuntu, when I try FireFox it comes up checked Offline.
I uncheck, and find that I cannot get to ANY website. Nor with...
okay, I'm over the mountain, I did the md5sum drag-and-drop run maneuver.
the output includes a dozen folders and a few more files.
Having looked through them "all" the only one that includes...
I am tickled by the primitiveness of some of the necessities in Linux/Ubuntu. Never in my computer life have I heard of typing a basic RUN command, an Assembler-type command, then SPACE, and then...
okay, ctrl-alt-t gets me a plain terminal.
then I type md5sum and
the cursing-blinker (blinking-cursor) sits on the next line and does nothing.
I assume I might identify there, the iso on the...
Houston, we've got a problem
in order to run the mdssum, I have to get to command
after ctrl-alt-F2 (that's command line, right,.? )
it asks for Login and Password.
I know my...
okay, I'm gonna work at it for a while. I just downloaded the iso and will now head for a verify.
one thing I'm wondering is the sequence of things. Do I still need to do the partitioning thing...
thanks, yes, obviously I downloaded the wrong file, back whenever I did that. Thanks for clearing up my thinking. And, I love your signature, too. Mine has been a favorite throughout my teaching...
can I download Ubuntu 12 and create a boot disk
(that's that ISO stuff, etc., right?)
then use that to install (replace the Ubuntu Lynx on my laptop)
okay, I decided to do it........
here's how far I got.
Kernel requires x86-64 CPU
only detected i686 CPU
so the only UBUNTU DVD I have, I apparently made on my 64-bit Sony.
how do I...
so I'd be booting from my original Ubuntu CD and not really using the Ubuntu that was installed on the hard-drive, right?
the partition thing.
I thought that implied dual-boot.
also in step 6 it mentions installing alongside windows.
how will I identify the Ubuntu partitions
and the swap partition
I read through it. I think it requires Windows, too. I don't have Windows on this machine.
help. This laptop has not been run in over a year. I have 400-some important updates which will not run no matter how much I've tried. The check button does nothing. I've gone through and un-checked...
Okay. I will check this out when I get back home.
me thinketh thou art too easily amused.
I'm tired of messing with this.
Just wish I hadn't upgraded.
To heck with Narwahl;
I'll keep choosing Lucid off the GRUB menu;
at least it's stable....
tried 'em both
they did nothing for my desktop;
but now I have a graphics problem again, which has not surfaced in quite a while
since I eliminated the GL screensaver.
okay; not sure what it did, but it ran
oh well, if I cursor-down on GRUB, I can select the Lucid option 10.04 which seems stable.
That's okay. I can retrieve my picture folders from external backups.
Only real problem I have is one I...
I had shortcuts and I had folders of pictures. Everything is gone now
Why would my desktop come up empty on the upgrade. Is there a way to retrieve the folders I had there?
after upgrade to Narwahl, my Grub menu now offers 126.96.36.199 at the top, which gets me only a series of error messages, and 188.8.131.52 further down which run, gives me an empty desktop, no history or...
Compaq Presario desktop
Ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat
Recently upgraded and working quite well.
Some time ago I was advised to get a GSky wireless adapter as appropriate for my Compaq Presario.
