    Re: Welcome to the North Carolina LoCo forum!

    HazelIced,

    Keep an eye on the team mailing list and IRC channel. Judging from traffic on the IRC channel there will be a gathering in the Raleigh area.

    Team Meeting Day and Time Survey

    Hi All,

    Things change; many that were okay with holding team meetings on Thursdays now have conflicts on that day or the current time (7:00pm). So I've made a survey to attempt to find the best...

    Good luck rplantz! I'm an old linux hand since '99; winxp has been messing with my virtualbox playground.

    [ubuntu] Re: Where to install grub

    Good point sir: I come from the days when all system wide settings were in /etc. Ubuntu is geared toward desktop users.



    It's the UID's that don't match; especially nice between apt and rpm.

    [ubuntu] Re: auto-upgrade not working

    You will need to disable that repository and key. Your post indicates only the key is offending; however I bet that if you only disable (comment out) the key you'll just get another error.

    I'm 98% sure you can't upgrade from any live cd. I upgraded a machine from karmic to lucid earlier this week and can say you don't have to worry about using up your bandwidth. It took about 11 hours...

    Yes, grief probably wasn't the best term to use. The sadness part is far more accurate.
