Tired of not knowing anything except Windows. Bought a Dell mini with Ubuntu 8.04 installed on it and I'm working on learning Unix from the command line. This Forum ought to be helpful once I get a little further along.
Hello, my hp pavilion ze4900 was workign perfectly then i installed some navidia driver thing ( wich wasnt for my cp) and then when i restarted it went blank. I have read various ways to fix this but i am still a linux noob and need much help.
Its not in the repo's. Its not in anything online that actually works. If i download the pack i either have the older versions of required packages or I dont have them all together. Now i cant get on any of the servers I did before because they upgraded, and I cant.
I got to the part where I'm supposed to partition Mint. I've got a 500GB hard drive, and I thought I'd give 300GB to LM--but I'm unclear about using ext2, 3 or 4. What about the swap file? Is that automatic?
i have recently installed opengeu which is based upon ubuntu 8.04 but i need the deb package for the latest kernel as my terminal rejects any attempt of making it and without the kernel my net and few other bit dont work.
if anyone could send me a link to it i would be most grateful
I'm using ubuntu, and I'd like my /var/log/syslog file to display unix_chkpwd lines, such as this one (which it doesn't do at the moment) :
Feb 6 04:20:40 www unix_chkpwd: password check failed for user (root)
I'd rather not install linux_pam unless really necessary because I already tried it and I've had quite a lot of problems with it.
Hi! I have a Fujitsu-Siemens V5535 laptop with a SIS Mirage 3+ graphic card, 671/672 chipset. I put ubuntu 9.10 on it, but I am not even able to settle the screen resolution higher than 800/600 . I tried different sollutions that i have found on the linux forum, but I was not successful.Can direct me in the right direction?
