    Ubuntu users want the choice and flexibility; but ramming this not-ready-and-not-well-thought out interface is really bad, and is one of the...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Can no longer run Eclipse and strange chmod behavior

    I started seeing the same behavior after I upgraded from 8.0 to 10. From your screenshot, I think we have the same problem. Since your path starts with /media, I'd guess that you have a USB device...

    [ubuntu] Re: Missing IDE drives?

  8. [ubuntu] Each new kernel update removes support for my NIC card.

    When I originally installed Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic), I realized that I had no internet connection because my NIC card (RealTek RTL8168C/RTL8111C Gigabit NIC) was not...

    [ubuntu] Re: No Internet After Updates!

    Did you try a powerdown/unplug/wait30secs/reboot sequence to see if 8.04 came up with the network? My PC came with the Realtek RTL8168C/RTL8111C PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC,

    Have you tried the Live CD (HH 8.04), just to check if Ubuntu can boot? That's how I installed Ubuntu. I think that there's an option of installing Linux within the Windows filesystem from the...
