Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Question

Currently I'm using Ubuntu 8.04, this is the first time I'm using a Linux operating system, and I understand that soon there will be an 8.10 version, Intrepid Ibex, what are the implications of this on me? Do I have to upgrade? How do I upgrade? When should I upgrade?

Thank you for your help.

U don;t have to upgrade !
But if u do is very easy... when the new version is released the updater will ask u if u want to install the new version and will do all the job for u ....

Ubuntu 8.04 is a LTS version (long time support) so as a beginner i recomand u to keep this version becouse all possible problems will be fixed faster and u wont have to bother with them ...

Anyway is best to get info from u;re local/national ubuntu forum ...

Linux install problem


You are going to create a new partition for the Ubuntu Linux operating system. Apparently, you are trying to overlay Ubuntu over Vista and it's no going to happen.

Before installing the operating system, I suggest that you view the tutorial video clip by clicking on the link.

Right, i just installed ubuntu, then overwrite my vista drive, i have a vista disk but i don't know how to overwrite the linux bootloader with vista. last time i tried this if failed.


To re-install Windows Vista please do the following:
Put the disc in and restart the computer
Boot from the disc
Do a full system install
Delete your partition [contains Ubuntu(Linux)]
and install.

I recently did this last week, went from Ubuntu back to windows 7, and currently I duel-boot both Operating Systems. I hope this helps!
Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

How to unblock your computer?


Understandable that you cannot get on My Space, and you are bored.

Your school, as have many others, have blocked your access to My Space, because they believe there are problems with the website.
Viruses could easily wind up in your computer, and affect the school computers, plus a host of other issues.

At least this is my theory of what they believe.

Install Ubuntu? NOT a good idea!
Why?

1.Because you if you override the settings on your laptop, the school will know it, for one. Could take the laptop away?

2.Can you access the administrator account? Nope.
You can't install programs, delete programs, or access any administrator functions.

3.Ubuntu Linux is a WHOLE NEW ballgame. It isn't anything like Windows, and isn't supposed to be. It's like comparing Apples to Oranges. Both are good, (IMHO), but they are different.
[I use Ubuntu Linux 8.10 - Intrepid Ibex]

Know someone that Does have a computer you can access My Space?

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Intrepid Ibex Beta


If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

G'luck

Intrepid Ibex Problem


Read up on what you have and develop knowledge and capabilities that will inevitably serve even better when you (also inevitably, but not impulsively) upgrade.

Linux on LG e200 or r200


Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.

It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.

Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).

Enjoy your new OS!
