Ubuntu aptget update returns 404 errors
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2011
I recently tried to update apt-get, but it just returned a lot of 404 Not Found errors. I've checked the links in a web browser and they work. I also tried wget the files from the server with the same 404 Not Found result. It doesn't matter if I change addresses to another server. I still get the same error. It seams like I can wget the index.html file of the root of a webpage, but not get any other file or get anything from a subfolder. There are no problems connecting to the server with either http, ftp, vpn or ssh. I'm currently using Ubuntu 10.04.1 so there shouldn't be any problem there. I've tried searching the Internet for a similar problem, but all solutions I found didn't work.
Here is the output from apt-get update:

VMWare Tools Ubuntu Install/Update Virtual Machine
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2009
I have Ubuntu installed in several VMWare virtual machines. Every time they release a maintenance version I have to update the VM tools in Ubuntu. Its a royal pain because I have by this time forgotten how to do it. Hope other newbies find this no brainer procedure useful.
Updating Ubuntu. Select the Ubuntu guest and power on the virtual machine then log on.
Select VMWare Workstation menu VM and then select Install VMWare Tools.
A CD/DVD icon will appear on the Ubuntu Desktop.
Right click on the icon.
Select 'Extract To' from the list.
When the Extract GUI has opened select Desktop in the places list.
Click the extract button and then close the GUI file browser.
Navigate to Ubuntu menu Application/Accessories/Terminal and drag the icon to the desktop or onto the toolbar. Open the Terminal by clicking its icon.
At the $ prompt switch to root by entering sudo bash.
At the # prompt enter apt-get update to update your package list.
At the # prompt enter apt-get upgrade
Do other ubuntu distros track your privacy?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2013
If you dont know what I mean, I am talking about the "Record activity" thing on Ubuntu which is set to on by default. Do other ubuntu distros such as linux mint, xubuntu, kubuntu, and lubuntu also have this feature enabled? Thanks!
How is it possible, that I can install only Ubuntu distros
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 19, 2013
How is it possible, that my netbook (Asus X201E - KX006H) only accepts Ubuntu based distros (like Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu etc..). I tried installing various number of linuxes, like Mint, Arch, Fedora, Debian, Backtrack. I tried installing both with Secure Boot enabled/disabled. Even different architectures (I have x64 and tried even x32).
The problem is during first part of installation - copying files.
I am not dissapointed with my Xubuntu, but I am very curious about why it does not work..
Thank you for every anwser..

technical differences between Red Hat and Ubuntu distros?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 7, 2013
i want to know the technical differences between distros? Red Hat's network configuration files are in different directory than of Ubuntu, what controls this differences?
When booting any distro what are all files required?
After POST boot loader gets control and passes it to the default or selected kernel and loads kernel image and initrd images and then init process starts loading all services, is this the sequence of booting for all distros? After loading all services a login prompt is provided, when log in to the server the associated shell with the account opens and wait for commands.
So There is KERNEL > INIT > SHELL right then basically what is the difference?

Btrfs Support For Ubuntu's Update Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2011
Eventually we will see Ubuntu Linux deploy Btrfs as the default file-system. While we will likely not see the switch from EXT4 to Btrfs with Ubuntu 11.10, there is work underway on Btrfs integration support into Ubuntu's Update Manager.
With Fedora 13, Red Hat introduced system roll-back support whereby anytime a yum transaction takes place for installing a new RPM package on a Btrfs root file-system, a snapshot will be created. Btrfs supports efficiently creating copy-on-write snapshots. Fedora has been quicker to adopt Btrfs installation support and its features, but now Canonical is finally supporting this path.
Ubuntu 10.10 gained Btrfs installation support as an alternative to using the EXT4 default. With Ubuntu 11.10 the default will more than likely be EXT4 still, but the update-manager program should gain snapshot creation support similar to the yum plug-in.
For Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Oncelot" is to call apt-btrfs-snapshot on update-manager build. A cron jo

ubuntu kernel update problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 18, 2014
My laptop will not run with kernel 3.11.* but fine with kernel 3.8.*. So every time it updates I have to change grub. What is the problem?
Processor is Intel Celeron 585. Is the problem here? It boots but never enters the logon screen. Instead I see that the computer cannot access the encrypted drive.
