Updates are provided by Update Manager. Look in the upper-right corner of your screen and see if there is a white star on an orange background. If there is, double-click it. Once inside, press "Check". Finally, click "Install Updates".

If you do not see the white star on an orange background, go to System-->Administration-->Update Manager. Once inside, press "Check". Finally, click "Install Updates".

Will ubuntu work with hard drives that have advanced format ?


Advanced Format drives are supported by linux distributions running kernel 2.6.31 or higher, though for best results 2.6.34 is recommended.
Ubuntu has shipped with support for advanced format drives since Ubuntu 9.10, so if you are setting up a new system with the latest Ubuntu 11.04, you shouldn't experience any problems.
For more information, you may want to have a read of Western Digital's customer service article about support for advanced format drives in Linux; http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5655
You may also want to review the list of kernels included in various Ubuntu distributions in the wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases#Version_history_of_common_programs
If you are considering upgrading an existing system, you can find out what kernel you are running by enteringuname -rat the command prompt.

I am using ubuntu 10.04,windows xp operating systems. i have creative 5.1 vx sound card. my problem is sound card is working vey good in XP. white noise is coming from spekers when i am using ubuntu...


Hello,
Please try switching just to Analog Stereo Duplex mode only. When you do this, the linux kernel will only load the ALSA(Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) drivers for the Audio Device, which works in all cases. If that fails, go to System>Preferences>Main Menu and enable the Multimedia System Selection menu.When enabled, select ALSA Mixer default device ONLY.
Have a great day ahead. All the best.

I removed Ubuntu from a dual Vista/Ubuntu boot system. Now I am left with a free space. When I try to create a new simple volume using Vista Disk Management tool, it comes back with a message "there...


it is very hard for me to help someone that wants to get rid of LINUX :( ...but I'm a proffessional and I'm letting my feelings aside ha!

Firs is your MBR was created with UBUNTU or Windows (in other words when you boot is it a windows menu or a LINUX menu) that lets you choose the boot options? if it's LINUX you have to use a LINUX base partition editor to edit the MBR (the way the system will boot), if it's a Windows MBR then you normally ave to delete the LINUX partiton... (if Windows can not delete it you can use a LINUX base disk partitioner) be extra prudent using disk partition editors, if you do not understand what you do you can LOSE data...

Good luck!
