I just started receiving this error about a week ago. I have changed the server twice (letting it find the best server). This is the error

Good App for Making PSX ISO Files?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 5, 2006
I'd like to back up a couple of my favorite Playstation games now that I've discovered the joy that is ePSXe (it runs them VERY WELL but not perfectly from the discs). But the 'bad block' protection used on the discs seems to brilliantly destroy my hopes with all the burning apps I've got except K3B which I can't install because of missing dependancies (I had it in Breezy and I've got all my repositories in order so I don't know why this is the case). But anyway, I have no guarantee that it would do the job either.
Gnomebaker is fooled by the protection. Gcombust dosen't even see the disc.
What other applications should I try to make some ISO's of my games? I only want to play these on my own private system. I don't intend to distribute them in any way.

Does small download size make Ubuntu inferior
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 1, 2006
I'm curious to know why Ubuntu has such a small download at about 700mb compared to 3+ GB of other Linux distributions. Ubuntu seems to get a great name, but the download seems so small that I'm wondering if it is a bit light on software compared to other distributions? Is Open Office/ games etc preinstalled?
Are the kernel sources preinstalled by the way?
howto connect ubuntu lucid laptop to win7 "conx share"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 29, 2011
Here is the situation: I have a mobile broadband "puck" (Sierra-250U). It works with various win-dose and with mac, but so far I have not got it working with linux. My wife and I each travel with our own laptop -- she uses win7, I use ubuntu lucid. We connect and launch the broadband puck and declare an ad hoc wireless network from her win7 laptop. [i]It says here that I'm supposed to be able to connect to the ad hoc wifi and then share thru to the internet.
My linux laptop sees the ad hoc wireless network. However, I cannot get a connection -- the validation (authentication) always fails.
Yes, I'm using the correct WPA strings etc.
ASIDE #1 -- My android phone does not even see the ad hoc wireless network. My wife's iPhone[tm] sees the ad hoc net but cannot connect either.
I know that win7 plays some funny games with its "home network" services and authentications. Is there something that I must do on win7 to permit and enable the linux (and maybe android) conn

ubuntu natty, caný find an app that is installed
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 30, 2011
I did the update last night because it has had a couple of months to mature but I can find no way to get to my Mahjongg game. The software center shows it to be installed but everything I have tried has failed to locate the GUI to start it.
Any hope for a dummy?
Games from Mac App Store on Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2013
Two days ago I bought Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast from Mac App Store, because i didn't want pay for Windows versions of these games. I copied base folders from both games to my Linux partition with installed Ubuntu. Later, I used these projects to run these games on Linux:
They both games work very well, so you don't have to spend money on windows games, if you use Linux and Mac OS X. Do you know other games from
Mac App Store (or for Mac OS X), which you can run on Linux? In the past I used a box version of Prey for Mac OS X with a linux installer, but I didn't check, if version with Mac App Store works with a Linux installer.
