    Sure, but it's meant to start automatically, so there's clearly something going wrong somewhere.

    [ubuntu] Re: No updates in nearly two weeks

    I'm curious - what happened here?

    I installed 10.04 about 2 hours ago, and I still haven't received any notification/pop-up to install updates. 2 hours may not seem all that long an amount of...

    No difference, it's just so you can do more than one thing at once. It's also possible to have different users logged in to each one.

    I think we've found the problem! For whatever reason, the b43 module/driver (module is linux-speak for driver basically) isn't loading. However, that's the driver we need, as evidenced by this line...

    This is precisely why having /home on a separate partition is completely pointless. Why not just backup the home folder to so an external drive then restore it from there if you need to. No need for...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't detect my wireless network

    Don't try installing the STA driver. The easiest way is through Hardware Drivers, so if it is not there then you probably don't need it.
