@Seth If you got the computer from Office Depot. Also, I do not want a new computer. I wanted a new hard drive. (Stupid Windows locking itself down to only one set of hardware) (AND THEN THERE'S HACKINTOSH).
I have installed Win7 and now I want to install Linux Mint 17 as the second OS. But after installing Linux Mint 17 grub never starts and Win7 starts automatically. What I need to do for installing grub?
To get a list of packages installed locally do this in your terminal:
dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall
To save that list to a text file called packages on your desktop do this in your terminal:
dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > ~/Desktop/packages
(you don't need to run th...
Hey guys I'm completely new to Ubuntu, I shut it down and when I got back on it, it had reset everything I had done including all my downloaded files back to default. Not exactly sure whats going on. Even from the terminal, my username that I chose during the installation doesn't appear, it is ub...
Dream build for the future: Mini ITX w. i3 or Pentium G3258 in a BitFenix Prodigy Orange. Have the side laser-cut w. the Ubuntu logo and then have opaque plastic inserted into the cut & have custom LEDs that correspond to CPU activity.
You can run top -o PID to sort by PID (or hit the < key several times while top is running to move the sort column to the right, until it's sorting by PID).
You can filter PIDs interactively while top is running by hitting the o key and typing PID>1000 or whatever minimum value you want, followe...
Does this comment war seem appropriate?
Sorry I meant to link question/answer
The guy answering, is arguing, when 2 people are saying it doesn't work
@Whaaaaaat In that answer, you might want to change "You probably need to reinstall Ubuntu." to "You probably need to reboot Ubuntu." Sometimes reinstalling's best, but this seems one of those cases where it's unnecessary. (Lots of comments there and we'd chatted about that Q before, which is why I'm using chat. Feel free to reply in chat, comments, or not at all--whatever's convenient.)
By default upstart logs to /var/log/upstart, and all the service logs are under
the same directory. I want to have a directory under /var/log/upstart (say, /var/log/upstart/myservices where all my daemon logs are kept).
Is this possible with upstart ? I didn't see any stanza/config to specify a ...
are there any disadvantages of installing Ubuntu inside the Win using installator vs next to Win using bootable device?
For example: My user account (on Win) contains diacritics which causes problems when installing Python modules using pip or setup.py.
@Oli: Uh hey Oli. I want to ask you something. I was reading your answer at Linux and Unix, and it had this line: "Can still get munched by Windows. Windows will ultimately do whatever Windows wants to do." I'm excited. Is Windows like sort of "powerful" or "superior" to Ubuntu? OS wars always fascinate me >.>
@Abhimanyu No, I just meant it has a habit of plodding around destroying things on your disk that it doesn't understand. It doesn't understand that you might want to keep grub forever or that EXT is a partition, not free space it can repartition at will.
I'm having some problems with networking on my dedicated server. I've recently ordered a Dedibox LT so I can provision some VMs via Ubuntu and vmbuilder. However I can't get past the stage of adding a bridge.
After changing my /etc/network/interfaces file to the following:
I wonder whether it is time to re-address the question about the (currently enforced) policy of treating EOL releases as off-topic. It strikes me as not only highly unintuitive but ultimately detrimental (see argument below), and so I would like to argue for a change of policy.
Current state of ...
Dammit, I agree with that. I've never understood why EOL questions are off topic. By the way @mods, I just answered suggesting they post on U&L instead. When you see a (good, or at least not crap) EOL question, please shunt it over to us directly.
