Have a dual boot system, windows7 & linux. tried to update to windows 10. stuck at grub rescue.


It sounds like grub can't find the correct partition to boot Windows 10. This should get you through it: http://askubuntu.com/questions/654386/windows-10-upgrade-lead-into-grub-rescue
Keep in mind that Microsoft never tested the upgrade on a system that dual boots with Linux and uses the Grub loader. You are in uncharted waters.

Very difficult to move the cursor around. It seems to be stuck and does not allow me to easily navigate. When I am inside my email browser it moves just fine.


Turn your computer off. Unplug the mouse or the wireless transmitter if it is wireless. Start the computer and wait for all programs to load. When they are all loaded plug the mouse in and wait for the drivers to be loaded. It should work fine now.

Why is music video on u tube freezing up


Sometimes when a video loads from the Internet (referred to as "streaming"), it can get "stuck" in your browser at some point before it finishes. This is normal, and is usually solved by refreshing the page up to a few times. However, if the problem persists, you can try switching Internet browsers (for example, if you're using Internet Explorer, you can try Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari). If the problem still persists, YouTube's servers are probably overloaded, so it might be a good idea to wait a while.

I installed Ubunto 9.0 AND when it came up it said, GRUB LOAD,no such partition, then at a prompt it says,grub rescue.


If you run a dual-boot system with Linux and Windows, this has happened to you. You had to do your monthly reinstall of Windows, and now you don’t see the linux bootloader anymore, so you can’t boot into Ubuntu or whatever flavor of linux you prefer.
Here’s the quick and easy way to re-enable Grub.
1) Boot off the LiveCD
2) Open a Terminal and type in the following commands, noting that the first command will put you into the grub “prompt”, and the next 3 commands will be executed there. Also note that hd0,0 implies the first hard drive and the first partition on that drive, which is where you probably installed grub to during installation. If not, then adjust accordingly.
sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
> exit
Reboot (removing the livecd), and your boot menu should be back.

Only read below if Windows is now missing from the boot menu
If you installed Ubuntu before you installed Windows, then Ubuntu will not have anything in the grub configuration for Windows. This is where you’ll have to do a bit of manual editing to the grub boot menu file.
If you open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst with the following command:
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
You’ll see a sample section for Windows, which you’ll want to uncomment and add to the boot menu list in whatever position you want it in. (uncomment by removing the #’s)
# title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
# root (hd0,0)
# makeactive
# chainloader +1
Note that you should also verify that hd0,0 is the correct location for Windows. If you had installed Windows on the 4th partition on the drive, then you should change it to (hd0,3)

Pc linux OS reboot loop


It might be cause by The MBR was messed up by a bad grub install. You can try to fix the grub.

If you want to try reinstalling grub, boot from the live CD, log in as root, open a Konsole window, and at the prompt, ([root@localhost ~]#) type;

[root@localhost ~]# grub <Enter>

GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / 3072K upper memory) <-- This is the output from grub after <Enter>

[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB
lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
completions of a device/filename. ]

grub> <-- The grub prompt.

From the grub prompt type;

grub> find /boot/grub/stage2 <Enter>
(hd0,0)
(hd0,4)
(hd0,5)
(hd0,9)
(hd0,11) <-- You'll only have one, use it
(hd1,0)
(hd1,2)
(hd1,4)

grub> root (hd0,5) <Enter> <-- Use what showed up above for yours
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83 <-- Grub reports both ext2 and ext3 as ext2. Don't worry about it.

grub> setup (hd0) <Enter> <-- That is a zero (hd0), not a letter
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage2" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/e2fs_stage1_5" exists... yes
Running "embed /boot/grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd0)"... 15 sectors are embedded.
succeeded
Running "install /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+15 p (hd0,5)/boot/grub/stage2 /boot/grub/menu.lst"... succeeded
Done.

grub> quit <Enter>

Your done; grub is reinstalled

KDE Install


Gentoo gives you a nice package installer called emerge. You can find a lot of instructions on how to install KDE at the gentoo wiki. The short answer is to go to terminal, and type "emerge kde-meta". For a better answer, check the link I provided earlier.
