How to flush DNS without root privileges
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2016
Is it possible to flush the DNS without root privileges? Would like users of a community desktop to do so occasionally. Currently I am using sudo /etc/init.d/nscd but I am not always there.
OR would it be possible to run this on boot without user interference?

I threw Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my old PC to see how it runs, and it runs great, but doesn't always boot up. Now I'm trying to install Windows Vista, and even when I select my DVD drive as the boot device, it stalls, then loads Ubuntu. I do have Wine installed, if I need to use it. But how can I reinstall Vista?

Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my Ubuntu 9.04 to 10.04 LTS, the problem I had is that I changed the file /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades in this way:
But, when I run do-relesase-upgrade I had this message:

Is there a way to update from 9.04 to 10.04 LTS?
How to make ubuntu 12.04 LTS faster on netbook
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2012
I looked around a lot for an advice as in the title but without any success.
I'd like to have some advices on how to make lighter and faster ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a netbook.
I have a samsung netbook (N150) with an Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N450 @ 1.66GHz (32 bit), 1 GB RAM and an Intel GMA graphic processor as graphic card.
I upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 LTS (netbook version) to 12.04 LTS some week ago. The 10.04 LTS version was very very faster than the one I have now.
I don't need any graphical effect (I use the 2D desktop environment), just I'd like to return to the speed of ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
Thanks for your help!
