Kali live usb issue: at the end of my rope.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 7, 2013
OK so evidently you cannot use unetbootin to make a live USB for Kali. I have been running sudo dd which appeared to work. Now I'm getting a "missing isolinux.bin" error when I try to use the live USB.
I have never had the problems trying to get a simple live USB to work as I have this piece of trash. Probably because I could use unetbootin on it and it just worked. I formatted the USB to be compatible with everything: should I use ext2 ore something?
The USB is 16 gigs in case that matters.
Anyone have a clue about this? I am using ubutnu 12.4 LTS updated today.
AMD Radeon HD 5xxx / 6xxx unsupported after 13.04 update
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2013
Hello. After updating to version 13.04, I started to get an annoying AMD unsupported hardware watermark on the corner of my screen (right, bottom). So I started to investigate what could have gone wrong...I have a AMD A4 CPU and a AMD Radeon HD 6480G. When I go to "Programs and updates" --> "Additional drivers", it says it's running a proprietary driver (fglrx-updates). If I check the fglrx box or the xorg box, the watermark does not go away.
I ran the Catalyst GUI and it says that version 12.9 is currently installed. According to the AMD website, the newest version of Catalyst for my CPU is 13.4. Ubuntu repositories only offer fglrx and fglrx-updates on the 12.9 version (BTW, what is the difference between those two drivers?!)
Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this issue? Should I be concerned at all with this watermark warning? I'm not experiencing video problems that I am aware of. Can I at least make this watermark go away?

eth0 detected, no interenet on knoppix live dvd but works on ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2007
Ok, basically I've used the knoppix live dvd, i managed to get the internet working through eth0 once, but not again after this occasion
i first tried ubuntu live dvd to choose my preference (i prefer knoppix), as my ethernet modem uses DHCP, ubuntu and windows pick this up and the internet works without setting anything up, etc.
however on knoppix, i have encountered numerous "freezes" where i have to switch everything off and back on (including my ethernet modem) otherwise i cannot access the net on windows or ubuntu
i've tried netcardconfig, network-admin but nothing works, i realised that on network-admin my eth0 shows and when i click properties, it is marked as enabled and the drop down option shows "DHCP", when I click ok, I see the main network-admin screen and when I click "Activate" for eth0, i get an error about incorrect settings, cannot proceed, etc.
sometimes when i run netcardconfig it tries to autodetect dhcp but it fails, as so

hello and HELP!
in a rush a week ago i bought a laptop to take on a month long trip. am on the trip now and have been forced into running windows. uggh. i am unable to run any easy install version of linux on the machine in queston, a compaq presario v2000 (tried to post link, but am still too new... 1.5G Pentium M with centrino, 60G hd, 512M ram, 802.11g, dvd rw drive, wxga 14" screen) and do not have knowledge or experience (i am a newbie of sorts who has run a knoppix hd install, debian, and currently ubuntu 4.10 on my home pc - mostly self configuring distros) to figure out how to solve my current issues.
would like to run ubuntu 4.10 Warty on the laptop but failing that any linux distro that will work on the machine as xp is killing me.
i have the machine partitioned for dual boot. am running xp on the first partition 6G, will run linux distro on second part ~25G, have a crossover partition (fat 32) , and a 1G swap.
now to the specifics:

[SOLVED] lxde lubuntu 10.04 where is default wallpaper?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 24, 2011
I was playing around with some jpegs on the desktop using the Desktop settings. I lost the path to the default wallpaper.
I have checked /usr/share/backgrounds and /user/share/wallpapers. There is nothing in those two folders.
If I know the path I can restore it. I need to know the default path to the default wallpaper. I have a black background for wallpaper now.
P.S. I've googled it. Edit: not enough /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers
LIVE CD / Ubuntu / PCLinuxOS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 21, 2006
hello to all of you here at linuxquestions.org
After an initial unsuccessful attempt a year back to dive into the world of linux, I think I am ready to begin again. But this time I want to go the LIVE CD way, to first evaluate which distro I feel most comfortable with before I go for an install.
(My last install of Fedora is still there on my disk, and probably untouched-the partitions are intact, but cannot access it after re-installing XP. The bootloader does not show the option to boot Fedora core at all. So I guess will have to start from scracth)
I wanted to try out ubuntu off a LIVE CD without doing an install. I downloaded the ISO file from here:
//releases.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu-6.06-alternate-i386.iso (have removed "http" from the beginning of the address as i am not allowed to post URLs)
The ISO file downloaded properly. I burnt the image properly to a CD. It also boots from the CD. But the problem is that it only displays me install options. I
CentOS is dead... Long live Scientific Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2011
The fans and users of CentOS, the most popular among the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clones, are slowly coming to a realisation that the project is grappling with serious troubles. As six months have passed since the release of RHEL 6 without any sign of CentOS 6, some are wondering whether they might not be better off using the "other" RHEL clone - Scientific Linux. Greg Smith summarises his feelings in "The rise and fall of CentOS": "If I needed a sign that it was time for me to start installing Scientific Linux 6, this week I found it. Any long-time user of RPM-based distributions has probably used a package from a Dag Wieers repository at some point. ... Well, that party is over. Last week Dag publicly announced that he was resigning from CentOS development work, seemingly over the development team's communication issues. In the comments there, Dag specifically suggests Scientific Linux as the right distribution to move to now, saying that 'their proces
updating GRUB in Scientific Linux 6.4 or Live Ubuntu 13.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2013
I've been working on dual booting Windows 7 and Scientific Linux 6.4 on my computer (HP Pavilion dv6 with i686 processor and nvidia GEFORCE GT graphics card), and I've run into some trouble with the actual dual boot part.
I couldn't install SL6.4 originally because I got a warning that said "Disks sda, sdb contain BIOD RAID metadata, but are not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disks sda, sdb."
I followed the instructions from asymptoticFault on this page http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2038121 After I deleted the metadata, I was then able to put SL6.4 on the parition. I ran into the same problem as asymptoticFault with GRUB, but, I think since I was only using a live version of Ubuntu, I was unable to use "update-grub" because "error-failed to get canonical path of /cow".
I tried to follow the instructions from http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair...d#.UbhsJ9I3tCg but, perhaps since I an using SL6.4 instead of Ubuntu, w

I Need Help setting up XBMC + Tvheadend + live tv working with my Hauppauge PVR-350 tv card, which the TV card was working with CSMonkey TV Remote before the installation, so I know the TV Card still works, I dual boot with Win 7 and it works with Media Center as well. My TV died, and want to get XBMC with TVHeadend setup so that I can distribute the TV signal to all my PC's in the house, I just choose this setup with XBMC with Tvheadend after reading

Ubu 12.04 + XBMC + XVDR live tv help?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 15, 2012
XVDR Is a live tv plugin for XBMC.
There is no complete guide to install XVDR. (XBMC is allready installed on my system and there are many tutorials for that available).
First of, here is a video what it looks like, its just amazing, compared to using tvheadend --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej0RMZGTUUc
Here is some kind of guide, but I am missing a folder "/usr/src/vdr-1.7.18/PLUGINS/src/" ,so this does not help me.
Is here anyone that can write a complete guide? Seems like nice program but no one has the ability to tell people how to install it.
Here are couple of links related somehow (do not know what to do with these):
