I wonder if there is some alternative to select.select(in,out,except,timeout) in python that would work just as select from linux, but also on windows. Normal select works also on windows but it has one big shortage - it only works with sockets.
I'm facing problem with abrupting blocking select (with timeout). Sometimes I need to end select call before timeout ends.
Is there a way to make a printer that works with ubuntu, work with windows when there is no longer a driver for it? Almost like spoofing the printer so windows see another printer over the network and can install the drivers on it? Right now I have an Imagistics printer IM510/IM4510 also known as a sharp ARM450.
i am thinking about switching from windows 8.1 to ubuntu 14.04. i am hesitating though as there are a huge amount of software and games only available for windows. i understand that you can use wine on ubuntu to install windows software but dont know how well it works and if it works for all software & games.
I am new to Linux and am excited to get started. However, I do not want to replace Windows 8, I would like to simply have two operating systems. I am installing from a flash drive. When I start my computer, I go into the BIOS, select SanDisk, select Install Ubuntu, and then it works. It does not, however, recognize my other OS and just wants to replace everything.
I just tried to install ubuntu 13.10, everything starts normal , language: english, have internet connection, enough HDD space, select downloading updates and third-party software and when I click on continue it gets stuck. I wait for (maybe) 2 min but nothing happens, so I quit but nothing change. So I press reset.
I have a Macbook 8,2 and managed to install Windows 8 an Ubuntu 12.10 along with Mac OSX, to make my life 'easier' I decided to install 'rEFInd' which technically would allow me to select which operating system to load upon turning my laptop on.
Hello everyone. Today my Ubuntu 10.04 doesn't work, and I am sure I haven't done anything strange yesterday. When I get to the grub screen, If I select any of the Ubuntu entries it just waits... and waits... and then spits out a list of errors, like it can't read sda and stuff. But if I select the windows entry that OS works fine.
