Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

How to Make Ubuntu Play MP3 Files


Because of licensing issues, Ubuntu is unable to play MP3s out of the box. We’ll show you how to play MP3s and other restricted file formats in about four mouse clicks.
The philosophy behind Ubuntu is that software should be free and accessible to all. Whether MP3 and other file formats are free is unclear in many countries, so Ubuntu does not include software to read these file formats by default.
musicplayer_001.png Fortunately, it does include a package that installs the most commonly used file formats all at once, including a Flash plugin for Firefox.
Note: These instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04. There are small differences for earlier versions of Ubuntu.
Play MP3 Files
Open the Ubuntu Software Center, found in the Applications menu.
sshot28.png
Click on View and ensure that All Software is selected.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_001.png Type “restricted extras” into the search box at the top-right. Find the Ubuntu restricted extras package and click Install.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_002.png Enter your password when prompted.
authenticate_003.png Once the install is complete, close out of Ubuntu Software Center, and you’ll be able to play MP3 files! To confirm this, we’ll open up Rhythmbox, found in the Sound & Video section of the Applications menu.
sshot116.png Our test MP3 plays with no problems!
Note: If Rhythmbox tells you that MP3 plugins are not installed, close Rhythmbox and reopen it. You should not have to install anything extra through Rhythmbox.

Despite this extra step, playing the most common audio and video file formats – including Flash videos on the internet – is simple. All the software comes installed, you just have to teach them how to read your files.

I am trying to download Ubuntu 13.10 from the DVD disk I got out of the Ubuntu Unleashed book I bought, and it keeps getting stuck on "configuring bcmwl-kernel-source" why is this happening, and what


Although it is nice to get a DVD in a book with the OS that you are reading about the only drawback is that the version of Ubuntu you are working with is 1 version behind the most current version. Since you have internet connection I would suggest downloading the lastest version and installing that.

If you are only installing to play around and learn use
Ctrl-Alt-F2 sudo kill -9 (pid of process 'modprobe wl')

That will move on to the next step in the installation process and should allow you to get everything installed.

Check on your device manger if your video graphics is installed properly. Or any other software is conflicting, remove the old installed dvd software completely and run a new installation. You must be aware that your video graphics is also installed. good luck.

Have replaced hard drive and now wish to load UBUNTU operating system. How do I do that?


Download the Ubuntu DVD iso, create the DVD and then boot from the disc.

If you plan on dual booting Windows and Ubuntu, install Windows first leaving some disk space for Ubuntu, Ubuntu will then install and setup the correct boot sequence for you.

Dvd not playing acer aspire laptop


could be driver is missing or corrupt or hardware (mechanical) malfunctions. It's probably just the driver. You can download the driver from Acer's website or other servers hosting the file. You can also test to make sure it's not mechanical problem by booting from a cd of another operating system such as Ubuntu. It's a free operating system and you can boot from a disc without installing the operating system to your computer. www.ubuntu.com

Well I don't know whether your objective is to study the commands or just to play DVD. If the objective is to play DVD, VLC player or Mplayer or any number of other players can be used. The install directly from software selection use package manager. If the objective is to study, I think debhelper and fakeroot is essential.

sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper fakeroot

and try. To be honest, I use Ubuntu but I am not a great expert in Terminal. May be a better idea to play DVD is to add medibuntu repository also in the software source. Good luck

I just installed ubuntu installed mp3 kodec


When you start your pc just after it listed your hardware, before starting the grub graphic of Ubuntu, press the esc key, and change your kernel using the arrow on your keyboard, to the previous kernel, as fare as i remember one the kernel was having a bug, just before i upgraded to Ubuntu intrepid 8.10, if you did not do the full upgrade, then go to http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/ and search for the latest kernel, my best advice is go to http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading and follow the steps base on your Ubuntu os, any problem come back to me richardicare@googlemail.com

Ubuntu dvd problem


You can use VLC instead (videolan.org). It includes the libdvdcss library that will allow you to play even content-scrambled dvds. Or if you'd like to do it the Ubuntu way, you can check this page. It has all the instructions you need to play DVDs.
