Tried installing Ubuntu Lucid Lynx using Live Cd on Compaq Presario SR5010NX
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 7, 2010
I have been trying to install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx using Live CD on this machine, a compaq Presario SR5010NX, with Celeron D 3.46Ghz CPU. Bios Version American Megatrends, Inc. 5.18, 2007; 2 gigs of RAM with approx. 140 gigs of hard disk space total useable. Has Realtek High Definition audio, graphic chipset Intel 82945G family; Soft data fax modem with smart CP (internal modem). It is connected to my DSL modem/router, Netgear DGN2000, with ethernet cable (as are my other two computers).
Sorry for the long preliminary, but thought it might help to address my problem. I start the installation. Finally the desktop shows up. As soon as I start trying to navigate, my mouse freezes and that's as far as I can go.
Just out of curiosity, I also tried to use my Mint 8 CD. It did the same thing. Gets the desktop up, then freezes. I am so frustrated because I really want Ubuntu on this machine. I planned on wiping out Vista Home Basic and giving the whole thing to Ubuntu.

What type of file is hash?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 7, 2013
For a homework question I was asked "What type of file is 'hash'?" But, isn't hash a command?
Btw, we're allowed to seek help on the assignment.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Pointer freezes everything on Ubuntu 9.10 DELL Latitude E6510
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 24, 2010
Partitioned Hard Disk I set up Ubuntu 9.10 (10.4 would hang before installation).
Computer works for a few minutes and then freezes (pointer and the rest: Ctrl Back, Ctrl Del, Ctrl f2 do not respond).
The graphics card is Intel® HD Graphics
LED Display (1920 x 1080) (perhaps too much?)
It seems a memory problem: testing memory on windows is ok. On Linux the memory test declare "too small lower memory". No problems with windows (I tried also wubi, independently, but it hangs immediately going blank after upgrading packages). Ubuntu 9.10 works perfectly on my older pc.
Very strange?? unusable, any suggestions? Thank you
find / boot / grub / stage1 Error 15 File Not found. Tried for Hours...HELP!!!

So when I got a new laptop, I decided to install linux on my old one for kicks. Its not a bad computer, only a year old, just needed more beef. So, I wiped windows 7 and installed Linux 11.04. A week later the 11.10 update came out, and I updated. Today, I wanted to dual boot with Linux and Windows 7. So, after some forum reading, I downloaded Gparted and dropped it on a USB drive. (My old computer doesn't have a CD Drive) booted up, split the hard drive in half, no problems. I booted back into linux and everything was fine. I installed Windows 7 from a usb stick onto the empty partition. Everything went well. But...grr...
So as I understand it, I have to repair the Boot Manager because Windows 7 overwrites it. So I followed the instruction on this page to restore the boot manager: http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_l...rst.htm?page=5 The problem that I've been stuggling with it for well over 2 hours!! I type root (hd0,0) no errors or anything. Then I type setup (hd0) it checks if
[SOLVED] Has anyone tried the Ubuntu DVD ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 15, 2010
Ubuntu CD doesn't contain most of the required softwares. They have to be downloaded from the net.
I was thinking of installing from the DVD when I saw the following quote on this page:
API mismatch: nvidia kernel module

I did an update and an upgrade the other day and screwed something up.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this?
If I install ubuntu on my ps3 will I be able to do everything I could on a PC?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 30, 2008
Just got a ps3 and heard that you can install an entire operating system on it to use while your not gaming. I looked at some instructions online and its actually easier than I thought. I was just wondering, since the ps3 is so much different from a PC , will the operating system work the same as it does on the PC. After all, it is the same download and the same ISO images. Does that mean that I can even do some C++ programing or XHTML on ps3? That would be really neat.
Note: sorry if this is the wrong place for this question.

Ubuntu One status "capabilities mismatch"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 1, 2013
I'm running an acer netbook with Lucid (and i looooove it). It usually runs smoothly w/o any problems.
It turns out that since a few days ago i haven't been able to connect to the ubuntu-one service. this is the message i get in the terminal:
~$ u1sdtool --status
connection: With User With Network
description: capabilities mismatch
So I've tried to even re-install the service as suggested in this closed thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1304850, note it's from 2009), with no avail.
So, does anybody have a clue what should i try?
