Netbook. Do you mean the HP Mini 1000 as shown at http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS7556806272.html ?

Simple Linux? It is something invented by HP based on Ubuntu. Being Ubuntu your Dongle can probably work. It might not be easy, but your Dongle can probably work.

Dongle. Do you mean the Orange Icon 225 as shown at http://rainycatz.wordpress.com/2008/12/20/...d-on-my-eee-pc/

"I need to know if I can put it on a stick from another pc..." Your problem might be "dependancies". Other applications upon which the application depends. These are often worked out "on the fly", But sort of...

It might be useful to you if you post on http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=326 . But watch out, replies can be very quick.

@michaelk A mobile dongle from the mobile 'phone company called "Orange"!

What distro (variety of Linux) has it got? Have you tried the command (which doesn't always work!) : startx

I assume you mean 8.10

Your system specs are not enough to run this. Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu#System_requirements

I use Kubuntu and had the same kind of problems you describe in Ubuntu. I has 8.04. I did a reinistall - 8.04.1. I used the app Hardware Device Manager and ticked the Nvidia box. This downloaded the latest driver. I rebooted and Nvidia was installed...

If you only have 128Mb of RAM you probably don't have enough.

openSUSE 10.3 - Main memory: At least 256 MB; 512 MB recommended

Either increase the amount of RAM or use a lighter distro.

It means input: sudo dpkg --configure -a

Sudo will give you superuser privileges.

sudo dpkg --configure -a

"What should I type in to change the boot order to: Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu Recovery Mode, Ubuntu memtest86+.bin?"

It's not hard, but it can change once you have done it...

See "Set Windows as Default OS when Dual Booting Ubuntu" at http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubunt...ooting-ubuntu/

Have a look at your Grub Menu. ASSUMING you have no extra kernels then it should appear as 1) Linux 2) Linux Rescue 3) Mem Test and 4) Windows. Windows IN THAT CASE is 4. You set 4 to boot first. When you get an extra kernel it appears as 1) Linux (new) 2) Linux Rescue (new) 3) Mem Test 4) Linux (old) 5) Linux Rescue (old) - Possibly? 6) Mem Test and 7) Windows. It will still boot 4 first - now Linux (old).

It can be easier to delete old kernels to keep Windows at 4.

I cannot guarantee that it will work, but try booting your laptop with a Linux LiveCD. Knoppix is maybe the best to recover data from windows. Have a look at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-knopx.html or http://lifehacker.com/software/disk-recove...t-cd-192982.php

QUOTE
I understand BBC's reason for making users outside the UK help pay for the cost of
providing them the service by including commercial advertising, but it has been a
real pain. They (or the people they outsource their technical support to) have not
made it work smoothly for Linux users.


So I can't watch some US shows like on ...ABC...CBS... because of copyright restrictions. I used to listen to, and quite enjoy, Pandora but that has been removed from outside US.

Yes. I'm in the UK.

I don't know exactly what I have installed which enables it.

Plugins include xine-plugin.

I can't easily answer the first query because I use Ubuntu, not Red Hat.

As to watching BBC - BIG NEWS- IT'S A CON!!!

I used to watch BBC using Realplayer. I found that I had to download it from the Realplayer site, rather than installing it from Ubuntu repositories.The site has instructions for installing, changing permissions etc. Most help came from a part of the BBC website - http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/audiohelp_nix.shtml. OK it's about Audio, but it's relevant to Video as well. The most important thing for me was that "The files nphelix.so and nphelix.xpt must be in the browser's plugins directory for Opera, Firefox and Mozilla" Have a look for these and where they are.

Why do I say that it's a con???

I don't have Realplayer installed at the moment. At all ... but I can still watch BBC News 24 and the various clips. I just told the site I had Windows Media Player installed. Part of the trick is to w-a-i-t for it to buffer. Xine does the job.

Copied from http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-150021.html

"Use the 'Recovery Mode from the Grub menu at startup.

Recovery mode will drop you to a root prompt. If you don't see the GRUB menu at startup then you probably have to press the ESC key to view it, as its sometimes hidden and only revealed when you hit the ESC key.

Once at the root prompt you can use this command to edit the /etc/sudoers file..

visudo #this command does on thing. It opens the sudoers file for editing

My sudoers file looks like this. Note the last line where I give my user sudo privileges. This is the line that would need to be added by those who, for whatever reason, don't have sudo privileges.

# /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
#

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# Defaults

Defaults !lecture,tty_tickets,!fqdn

# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
mustard ALL=(ALL) ALL


You can see my username on the bottom line. You would need to add your username to the bottom as I have done.

Assuming your user name was "bob'', then the line that would need to be added would be..
bob ALL=(ALL) ALL

This is just one way of doing it. Some sudoers files are set up with an admin group called 'adm'. Users are then added to the adm group, and a line in the sudoers file that looks like this below gives members of the 'adm' group admin access.
%adm ALL=(ALL) ALL

If you decided to do it this way you would create the line above at the bottom of your sudoers file then do this command (substituting your username in the appropriate place)..

adduser your_username adm"

Then try the visudo option. I lost superuser status, through some kind of corruption and that is how I put it back.

Reboot and select 'recovery mode' from the grub menu then:
QUOTE
useradd -G admin <your account name>
this adds your account to the admin group, giving it sudo rights you can also edit the sudoers file directly, with:
QUOTE
visudo
You can't easily log into "root" because Ubuntu with sudo doesn't work that way.

Have you tried different booting? Try acpi=off. (I think when booting starts you press F6 to change)

Did you create the disks yourself? A common mistake among newcomers is to simply copy the iso onto a disk, whereas they need to "burn an iso" - that is create a special bootable disk.

What are the system specs of your computer? There might be a hardware incompatibility. Does the computer have a make and model? What is the make and model of your video card? How much RAM do you have?

"Every attempt ended with a black screen after i have been watching a lot of loading text pass by on the screen". Have you changed the boot order so that it boots from the CD-Rom first? Is there another OS on the machine?

Have a look at "Ubuntu Linux on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600-0HKE7" at http://blog.clickonline.org.au/2007/04/11/...pro-4600-0hke7/ . This suggests that wireless should work with (K)ubuntu straight out of the box.

Is the wireless connection there but not being picked up. I have a Toshiba Equium and find that the program "wifi-radar" helps.

"I don't know how to find the info about the output of the console command Ispci" It begins with l (L for Lemon). Open Konsole Terminal Program and input: lspci . Then copy and past the result here.
