I have a laptop with one hard disk partitioned 3 ways with vista on the first partition, CentOS 5.5 on the second and Ubuntu 10.04 on the third. I installed CentOS last over a Fedora installation.... [by bsmyth77]
I have recently installed Ubuntu on my PC. When I tried installing a Valve game on Ubuntu, it said that I only have 2000 megabytes of memory left on my PC.
When I switched back to Windows 7, it said that I have another 500 gigabytes of memory left. I have already searched to the deep depths of space for an answer, but it seems like I am the only one with this problem.
I have CentOS 6.4 64-bit PC with 24 GB of memory. I typically use /dev/shm extensively for large temporary files. However, about a month ago, it started behaving wierd. When I copy large files to /dev/shm, the PC slows down and starts swapping to disk.
I originally had windows vista on my computer but it was infected by a virus and messed up vista so i tried to fix it by installing fedora. I then got a new vista install disk and i had to format my hard drive to install so i did. But after the format and before the installation of vista I restarted my computer and when i tried to install again it says it cannot find a hard drive to install on. :(
I upgraded to Precise Pangolin 12.04 and my Samba file sharing FROM windows has stopped. Windows Vista has worked o.k. in the past. Now Ubuntu can see files on a Windows Vista computer and an XP machine on my LAN, but not the other way around. Windows can ping the Ubuntu machine, no problem, either under its ip address or network alias. This is very irritating.
I got a new machine for work and was already using Ubuntu before that with a chain loader setup to load Windows 7 on another disk. My employer likes that cause he can just rip out the ubuntu disk and no trace is left of it.
My most recent problem is that he wanted to limit the reboots from Windows to Ubuntu so he asked me to setup myself as a VMWare VM.
