Kali live usb issue: at the end of my rope.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 7, 2013
OK so evidently you cannot use unetbootin to make a live USB for Kali. I have been running sudo dd which appeared to work. Now I'm getting a "missing isolinux.bin" error when I try to use the live USB.
I have never had the problems trying to get a simple live USB to work as I have this piece of trash. Probably because I could use unetbootin on it and it just worked. I formatted the USB to be compatible with everything: should I use ext2 ore something?
The USB is 16 gigs in case that matters.
Anyone have a clue about this? I am using ubutnu 12.4 LTS updated today.
[SOLVED] There is no "menu.lst" in my Ubuntu "/boot/grub/" folder.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 30, 2010
I have a problem with my GRUB bootloader. I have Ubuntu 9.10
and Win XP installed on my laptop. But only the list of Ubuntu
appears in the menu and NOT win XP.
Some instructions say try to edit the "menu.lst" file in
But there is no such a file in my /boot/grub/" folder.
What should I do now?
With best regards,
Please recommend a distribution for my mediacenter

I'm trying to build a Media Center and I wanted to put Linux on it. Ideally, I'm looking for something that can be easily controlled with a remote control. Also: Linux isn't really mandatory. If you have a suggestion that is better than Linux, I'd love to hear it (and why it's better).
Ubuntu fills my memory like crazy what can I do?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2013
I recently got a new laptop. Its quite fast, and its a good laptop, and it has 8 Gb of RAM.
The problem I have is that when starting up Ubuntu, and opening Google Chrome, playing a few youtube videos, going on a few websites, my RAM usage has jumped up to 60%, or so says the memory indicator I have on the top panel. My computer starts to get slow if I do anything massive as well - If I use a virtual machine for a bit then close it, the memory stays high and the computer stays slow. Quickly and Glade UI Designer also cause a lot of this.
At the moment, I am using unity and compiz with a lot of effects turned on. I switched over to Gnome 2.x without, and it seemed to be fine, although then again I didnt exactly test it. I like Unity though, I dont want to switch.
My question is - what can I do to improve this? Is there some handy little background daemon software that automatically cleans the caches or something? Because I would have thought that Ubuntu (technically I use
Which distro is best for my netbook?

I just purchased an Acer Aspire One D270 and would like to give Linux a try. This would be my first ever Linux experience so my knowledge on the topic is limited to the basic research I've done.
I've narrowed down my search to Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Where I get confused is when I see all the options available (i.e. KDE, XFCE, Kubuntu, etc.). I have no idea what any of this means.
Basically, I'm looking for the OS to be:
1. Very light on the resources
2. Simple to use
3. Highly customizable (i.e. I'd like to be able to use custom themes)
Any help would be appreciated.
Installing Xubuntu and then Linux Mint. Now my Xubuntu is gone!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2013
I am new to Linux, so I am still trying out different Linux distros.
Recently I wiped my harddrive clean from Windows, and installed Xubuntu with the following partition
/sda1 /boot 500 MB
/sda2 / 20 GB
/sda3 unused 20 GB (for installing other distros)
/sda4 /home 80 GB
/sda5 unused 20 GB (for installing other distros)
/sda6 swap 2.5 GB
Xubuntu runs fine. Then I installed Linux Mint 14 (Mate), with the following partition scheme:
/sda1 /boot 500 MB - formatted (yup, I overwrite the Xubuntu boot with Mint boot ... i guess that was my mistake)
/sda2 unused 20 GB (contains Xubuntu)
/sda3 / 20 GB (formatted)
/sda4 /home 80 GB (unformatted, shared with Xubuntu)
/sda5 unused 20 GB (for installing other distros)
/sda6 swap 2.5 GB
In addition, when asked to which device i want to install boot, I chose /sda, rather than /sda3 or any other partitions.. I am confused about this.
I guess I messed up the boot.
COuld you please
[SOLVED] Debian vs Arch linux for my needs on a laptop advice requested
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2012
Hello LQ users, I just have a couple of questions.
I recently got a new laptop, and I'm finally intent on running GNU/Linux properly on it, (I've mainly used virtual machines in the past).
My friend recommended Arch Linux to me, and I say that it's intriguing, yet I only have one main issue with it: pacman.
I'm just used to apt-get, and to me, it is much more user friendly, as well as more powerful (in terms of number of commands/options, from a first glance anyway).
So I've had experience with Fedora, Ubuntu and Kubuntu (as well as Xubuntu). I've decided that most likely I'll try GNOME 3, thus my reasoning for instead of Arch, maybe trying a more Debian-based derivative. So now I'm thinking, I don't need a Debian based derivative, maybe I should just try Debian itself!
I'm mainly wondering which one to pick, Debian or Arch. I'm fine with suggestions, but I'd rather distros that are at least fairly well known, and not the really obscure ones.
I want to be able to try
Which Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu for my computer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 30, 2011
I would like to install one of the several Ubuntu distributions (Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu) for use on a personal computer running Windows 7. That is I would install the Linux distribution under Oracle's VirtualBox.
The main hardware on my computer is:
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2220 2.40 Ghz
3.49 GB of usable RAM
The graphics card, is an Intel integrated one. I don't remember which one from the top of my head. It's on an Asus mobo bought sometime in 2009.
Windows Experience Index of 3.3
I would dedicate about 32 GB of hard disk for the Linux distro plus anywhere between 1 GB and 1.5 GB or RAM (that'd depend on your advice).
Thank you in advance!
