[SOLVED] Need to install networkmanager without internet connection
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2008
I put the installation cd in, added it as a repository with: "sudo apt-cdrom add" and tried "sudo apt-get install network-manager" and it said it has no installation candidates. apt-cache search didn't turn up anything either.
The same thing happened with ndiswrapper, which is a program I've already installed from the CD, so I guess I messed up the repos cache somehow. I tried apt-get update, but it didn't change anything.
Any help appreciated.
[SOLVED] need to install a boot manager for Slackware 13.37
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 25, 2011
I have just installed Slackware 13.37 onto /dev/sda1
I during Setup refused to install Lillo. That's a VERY old program
and I can't see why anyone is messing with it these days.
So now all I can boot from is a USB memory stick.
This is a problem, because it is slow and I have another
OS on /dev/sda3 which I would like to have the option
to boot. I need boot manager like Grub to boot from
the hard drive /dev/sda.
I've always had the installing operating system do this
automatically, and I expected Slackware 13.37 would act
like them other modern distributions, but no such luck.
Can anyone tell me where I can get instructions on
installing a boot manager, probably Grub, in a situation
such as this ?
[SOLVED] need to repartition hard drive to install Linux alongside Windows 7
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2013
I'd like to install CentOS 6.3 on a pc that already has Windows 7 installed and make the system dual bootable. The problem is that the Windows 7 installation uses 4 primary partitions on the hard drive (/sda1=mbr, /sda2=c:, /sda3=d:, /sda4=t: (temp)). I've shrunk the partitions to give me enough room for the Linux distro. Is there a way to change /sda4 from a primary partition to an extended partition? do I have to delete it and then add it back in under an extended partition? Is there another or better way to accomplish this task? thanks
[SOLVED] Need Advice on Pipelight Install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 24, 2014
I am part way through a Pipelight install, mainly for the purpose of satisfying Netflix browser and Silverlight requirements.
I didn't install a useragentchanger but instead just used Firefox's "about:config" and created the proper key. This seems to be working fine.
Pipelight almost completes the diagnostic page. I get 2 errors
[SOLVED] Need advice on installing GNOME desktop in a commandline install of Debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 5, 2012
Okay, I've recently installed Debian on my laptop. My initial plan was to install it, and then get the new GNOME 3 immediately downloaded from the experimental repos and proceed to use it. When installing Debian, I've decided not to install a graphical desktop environment, because my reasoning at that time was, "Why clog the system up if I'm going to switch to GNOME 3 anyway?". so I didn't install it.
I've now been reminded of how annoying it is to work (at least for a newb like me) without any graphical desktop elements.
So my question is, for now, I want to install the normal, default GNOME 2.3 desktop back on my machine. I can of course simply reinstall the entire OS (my new Debian install is quite fresh anyway) and just install it with the Graphical desktop option checked.
However, I've decided to be a little more experimental and do the old fashioned "learn how my Linux system works". I know how to set-up wifi commandline only, and with that I can ju
[SOLVED] Need to install G++ for programming with Qt on Fedora 18
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 14, 2013
I used to be able to program with Qt on an old PC, using the Qt Designer which was included among Red Hat Linux 9 development tools, when G++ was also among the included packages. I have now installed Fedora 18 (along with original Windows XP) on a twin-core Pentium motherboard PC, but both Qt and G++ need to be separately installed for programming on the Fedora Linux system. I have partially installed Qt but could not complete the "make" process owing to error message "g++ not found". Now I need to install g++ to complete the Qt "make" process. Many thanks in advance for guidance and help.

[solved] Need to remove nvidia drivers to install proper arch nvidia package
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 8, 2008
I switched to arch about a month ago from ubuntu, so far i'm loving it and having no problems, everythings setup exactly as I want it and my systems running smooth as silk. Ubuntu gave me a good knowledge base to love setting up arch from scratch and now I know even more about linux, well arch in particular anyway.
One thing that hasn't set me in good stead from ubuntu though is nvidia drivers. I'd gotten into a habit of allways installing the latest beta .pkg from nvidia's site as my 8600m didn't perform very well with the older drivers. So naturally when I first installed arch when it came to the nvidia drivers I went straight to the nvida site, got the beta drivers and installed them just as I would have in ubuntu, this worked a treat and I havn't thought about it since.
Well, now I've truly realised that arch's repo's arn't frozen and kept upto date, i'd like to install the non beta nvidia driver - 177.80 - using pacman except ------

[SOLVED] Need low cost, simple to install on Slackware printer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 30, 2012
Rather than try to follow the LSB 3.2 conversion for Slackware I would appreciate hearing which printers Slackers have recently acquired from like Walmart, BestBuy, Target, or Office Depot that have installed with little more than a download of manufacturers drivers. I am looking to keep it under $70 as my needs are critical but simple. HP and Lexmark will not be considered due to prior negative experiences.
