Hello, I have a system with UEFI and windows 8 pre installed. I have installed ubuntu 13.04, and Grub is showing up now, I was having an issue where I couldn't get it to boot into grub, however that error is fixed.
I am building my own custom CentOS Live CD with tools and settings I need. But if I want to root myself using "su" I always get this error message:
Error setting value: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information.
