Ubuntu 11.04 vs Fedora 15
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 16, 2011
So I'm a long-time Windows user and I haven't really used Linux for my desktop (although I've used it for my personal server). I love Windows but I want to check out either Ubuntu or Fedora and see if I can live without it (After all, free is good)
I hear the main difference in discussion between Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04 is the desktop renderer... Gnome 3 vs Unity. I've read some articles that discuss the differences between the two, but even still I don't really know which one is the best for me.
So for someone coming from Windows 7, can anyone explain which is the "best" choice and why? I prefer objective reasons over subjective, if possible. I'll list a couple of things I do/use in Windows so you can maybe compare which distribution is best suited for me:
Browser: Google Chrome (beta channel). I assume Chrome for Linux is exactly the same as windows in terms of functionality.For version control, I use SVN... and TortoiseSVN with it. There is no TortoiseSVN for L
[SOLVED] java and "app inventor" vs. Linux Mint12 (Ubuntu 11.10)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 10, 2012
Neither "java" nor "app inventor" are specific to any distro or even linux. Regardless, I cannot get "java" running in ways that satisfy the "app inventor" pages.
Can anyone help me sort this out?
I'm running Linux Mint-12 (Ubuntu 11.10) and have all of the various java packages installed. I'm trying to use the Chromium browser with MIT's "App Inventor" tools for building Android apps. I need something really trivial on my 'droid, and App Inventor seems a light weight approach to doing a prototype.
Thanks in advance,

Last week we delivered results looking at the power consumption of Ubuntu 11.04 versus Windows 7, which was interesting in its own right, but in this article is a brief look at where Apple's Mac OS X operating system fits in between the power consumption of Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows.
Ubuntu, 11.04 (fully updated)
location: linux.com - date: August 31, 2011
My main PC seem to have caught galloping bit-rot.
It's been working perfectly for two months but, in the last week or so it's started spontaneously hanging. I was just filing some emails in gmail (via Chrome browser - v13.0.782.218) and the whole system just hung; not even mouse movement. I haven't added any hardware recently. the hardware is only a couple of months old and I'm not running anything particularly weird except (maybe) VirtualBox (non OSE version).
There's nothing I can see in the logs (kern.log and syslog - excerpts below) and I can't find anything on the Ubuntu bug list which might affect me.
Any ideas about where I can look trace-wise and/or if some of the latest updates have caused any grief? :(

Backtrack 5 tools in 11.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2011
I recently got my macbookpro5,5 fully working with Ubuntu 11.04. One question i have though, is would it be possible to add the backtrack 5 tools (i.e. a repository, etc.) into this build of Ubuntu?
I tried following these steps (http://www.zimbio.com/Ubuntu+Linux/a...cations+Ubuntu), but i am unable to ping: repo.offensive-security.com (which leads me to believe they changed the repo).
Any help is appreciated!

triple boot 2 linux : PC BSD, Mandriva, and Mint 11
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2011
Hullo! This is my first post here.
Am bit of a newish user of Linux. I just completely erased my Windows in a dual boot setup with Ubuntu 11.10 after destroying the partitions.
Now, I am trying to get to work a triple boot system on one disk.
I installed PC BSD first, without the bootloader. Then Mandriva, then Linux Mint 11, which works fine
Grub 2 loads Mint fine, lists Mandriva, but cannot load it. I only get " a kernel panic not syncing" message. It cannot see the BSD install.
Here is the output of fdisk:

CentOS or Debian or Ubuntu 11.10 for a server environment
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2012
Before anything get's technical here's what I plan on using.
Ruby on Rails
PHPMyadmin (just use to it)
I originally had gentoo installed but because it has constant updates and they do take for ever to compile and the recent update broke etc-update for updating config files.. Arch is in the same position and it's an OS you can update pacman(since there's no go gui to gather data and only one terminal window is counted..)
Of course I know how to easily fix those issues in a running box but I don't recommend gentoo or arch for production boxes.
Now brings me to the actual question, what do you guys thing would be better for a server environment? CentOS 6, Debian 6, Ubuntu 11.10.
I have experience with all of them, but never ran any of them in a server environment.
Ubuntu 11.04 based OpenVZ VPS is unable to connect to internet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 15, 2013
Hi, I recently bought a VPS, and after a few updates and program installations, the VPS had issues connecting to the internet. I managed to fix it the few times its happened, but as of recently, the VPS completely refused to connect, even with my fixes, of which involved editing the /etc/network/interface file. I have tried everything, including opening a support ticket with the hosting company, of which they were no help, responding to me with a reply saying that they do not support Ubuntu, meanwhile they provide a premade container for it. I can access SSH from a backup console the hosting provider provides in their control panel, but not sftp or anything else.
Please help, this VPS is critical to a growing gaming community, as it provides hosting to a mumble server and a game server as well.
