    [xubuntu] Re: Internet Connection - none

    Sorry, my bad. dhclient is not the name of a package. To see the owner of the dhclient command, see the output of:

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Boot Question: how to remove older OS

    I concur with tedr108, use gparted to flatten your SATA disk. Old school would use fdisk from the command-line.

    I am not greatly familiar with the grub2 way, but "update-grub is a stub for...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Quad Boot OS with separate boot partition

    Cool idea, I am working on a similar configuration on my home machine, five partitions on a 1 TB disk, five operating systems.

  4. [SOLVED] Re: CLI Output redirection is generating some gibberish

    Your terminal is not interpreting the square-bracket commands, likely to be asking for color, correctly. Check the setting of the TERM environment variable:

    to check the current installation status.

    [all variants] Re: How to reinstall windows?

    Sounds good, I use gparted to slice and dice disks as well. Have not had any problems.

    And, since you have an IP address and netmask, it appears that dhcp is working.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ethernet recognized but not connecting.

    What happens if you try "ping 192.168.15.1"?
    I am suspecting possible...

    If "ifconfig eth0" shows that an address has been assigned, try running the "route" command to see if your routing is correctly set up. It would be helpful if you posted the results of both these...

    [SOLVED] 12.04 strange NIC behavior

    I accidentally upgraded to 12.04 from 10.04. Kind of regret it. Got Unity desktop when I prefer the traditional desktop, but can get used to that. The strangest thing is that the system keeps popping...
