    [ubuntu] Re: mainframe emulator in Ubuntu

    It's more than the bare OS. You get TSO, JES2, all dataset types (of that era) supported including VSAM**, 3270 terminal support (via BTAM/TCAM) and you get the Assembler and the MVT COBOL compiler...
  2. Re: How to install a package from iso image without burning it on a CD

    This doesn't seem to be just a package - it appears to be a whole system - boot from the iso and it wipes your hard drive and installs a specialist version of Linux with the voicemail system etc....

    [ubuntu] Re: mainframe emulator in Ubuntu

    I got this working a few years back, got MVS 3.8 up and running, it wasn't too difficult. Don't think there's any real risk of messing up your install, it's just another application as far as...

    Closing thread as it's not going anywhere.
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Keeping Firefox up to date on Lucid after end of support

    This applies to all ppas, but people still use them. I understand the issues.



    No. I'm quite happy to use other methods when appropriate. I've installed from official repos, ppas, debs,...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Keeping Firefox up to date on Lucid after end of support

    10.4 is not just any old obsolete release. It's the last Gnome 2 LTS, and a lot of people would have stuck with it if possible (e.g. if it had 5 years support like the current LTS desktop versions)....
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Keeping Firefox up to date on Lucid after end of support

    I realize I can get a tarball to install manually. As I stated, I was particularly hoping for a ppa, which would then form part of the normal update process without me having to update manually every...
  9. [SOLVED] Keeping Firefox up to date on Lucid after end of support

    10.4/Lucid Desktop version is now out of support. I know I should upgrade but I'm still weighing the options etc. and in the mean time I want to at least keep Firefox and Flash player up to date...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Re-partitioning or re-formatting NTFS partition fails

    I realize that you've sorted this out now, but for future reference if you want to clear down a whole disk and start again, Gparted does have a 'new partition table' option, which will effectively...

    [ubuntu] Re: Backup Software for Ubuntu

    One thing I used to do but don't anymore is compress data. My reasoning is that nearly all 'large' files are already efficiently compressed internally by specialist methods relating to the data they...

    [ubuntu] Re: The GIMP causes strange behaviour.

    Actually I wasn't referring to this (presumably a gimp option?), I was referring to the Linux swap partition, which acts as a (slow) extension to your RAM and is not application specific.

    Here are...

    [ubuntu] Re: The GIMP causes strange behaviour.

    Looks as if some of the psd files require more memory to convert than you have. Is it actually the largest files that fail in this way? How much RAM have you got? How much swap space?

    [ubuntu] Re: Removed Guest Login and lost GUI

    Yes, you should be able to fix this by booting from a 'live' CD or USB stick, then check/correct the file you edited.

    [SOLVED] Re: New Motherboard, Old HDD.

    I would say that if the BIOS isn't recognizing the HD, then it can't possibly be anything to do with "certain motherboards not running Linux distros"; the motherboard doesn't even know you've got...

    I would recommend using the search facility in the 'Synaptic' gui package manager to search for automake, this might be a package naming issue.

    [ubuntu] Re: Partitioning Drive

    If you are going to resize a Windows partition, you should use Windows, otherwise for creating, resizing, deleting Linux partitions use a LiveCD/USB and Gparted as advised above.

    [ubuntu] Re: dmstat not recognised

    Looks like a typo, should be 'dstat', not 'dmstat'; also, sda7 is a partition, not an actual disk, and you need '-D' not '-d'.

    Try

    dstat -D sda


    I'd check this myself but I'm not at my...

    [ubuntu] Re: 64bit Intel?

    "amd64" is the name of the extended instruction set AMD invented for 64 bit processors. It was then adopted by Intel for their 64 bit processors.

    So "amd64" means it runs on AMD or Intel 64 bit...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04.1 apt-get upgrade Errors

    If you still want to expand the boot partition, you need to boot from a live CD/USB, then use Gparted to:
