Xubuntu software update stays on, then says system up to date after doing nothing.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 6, 2013
For the last 3 or 4 days my software update notifier has been on and when I click it, it says there are 35 updates available. I tried running the update and after a minute or so it comes back and says system is up to date. However, the notifier is still there and it still says there are 35 updates available. I don't think its updating anything. Does anybody know what would be causing this?
[SOLVED] Xubuntu/Ubuntu not booting after kernel update
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2013
Edit - Actually, my mistake, simply a blank USB stick in there that meant it was trying to boot from that rather than from the HDD.
Xubuntu or Ubuntu is best for very old computer??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2011
Which is the best choice for an old system with low memory and slow chip. But it must be easy to use for very non tech users. Would Xubuntu be the best choice or something else?
I was afraid that Ubuntu might be too much for the chip set to handle but I am also afraid that Xubuntu might not be easy enough to use for non techs.
[SOLVED] Failing to install and run Wink in Xubuntu 12.04

I am trying to install wink, a programm to take screenshots of my desktop and turn them into an image sequence. I had problems with its installation in the past, it needs two old packages:
xubuntu, ubuntu or edubuntu for 3 yr old?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 26, 2009
I'm considering xubuntu for installation on my a 3yr old child's computer. The computer in question is an old Dell (1st gen P4 I believe) with 512mb of RAM that was just replaced for the parents.
I was asked to set it up for surfing the web and playing games (the simple flash kind). A few questions come to mind:
1) Assuming the presence of drivers for the video card and the like, would 512mb of RAM be enough to run Firefox w/ flash on ubuntu or xubuntu?
2) Would it be exaggerated to expect to run WINE on such hardware? Reason being that some of the games the parents already purchased are made for windows. I would bin them personally but apparently it's important to them that the child can play these.
3) Samba. I'm assuming all flavours of ubuntu run it but then again I may be assuming too much. Would xubuntu handle this?
P.S Alternately, would a system running a Intel Celeron 430 Conroe-L (1.8 ghz) be enough for ubuntu or would I have to go lighter (xubuntu or lighter)
Xubuntu 8.04 PPC Update initramfs issue
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 22, 2008
So, I've been running 8.04 successfully on my PPC iMac G3 (400 MHz, slot-loader) for about a few months now. After installing the latest update and rebooting, my box goes into initramfs shell. When I first hopped on the Ubuntu band wagon and ran into the initramfs i would just give up and try another version (Ubuntu/different versions) but after a few months, i have files that I don't want to lose!
How can I get my box back up and running again? All of the initramfs issues that I have found up until now are in regard to new installation problems.
Manual driver update reverting to old version after boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2010
Hi wonderful community!
I'm running into some problems here. I'm trying to setup bonding on two GigE cards. Things seem find but when I test out a couple different file transfers on samba, I'm getting a kernel panic. In the process I'm trying to update the e1000e driver (Intel 82574L). The problem I'm having with this is after I reboot, the old e1000e driver is getting loaded.
Here's some background. Installed is 10.04, upgraded and dist-upgraded:
$ uname -r
Linux SERVERNAME 2.6.32-23-server #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 09:11:11 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ lspci | grep Ethernet

04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)
Below I note "1.0.2-k2" for driverversion.
$ sudo lshw -C network

Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 26, 2014
I have an HP DV 4000 with 512 MB ram and a 100 GB hard drive that I will use as my travel laptop when XP ends in April. Upgrading the components is not feasible at this time due to budget. Right now it has XP and I'd like a general consensus from the community on which would be better suited as a flavor of Linux. Any ideas or comments and even pros and cons are welcomed.
