I have to replace the HDD in my laptop. I want to install LINUX on it because I don't want to buy windows. I need to find a tutorial with step by step to follow to download LINUX to another computer, burn it to a cd(s), and then use those to load my new HDD in my laptop. Any one know where I can find this tutorial? I'm 60 and not very techie but I can follow a good set of instructions.
I am a Linux newbie and did one successful install Ubuntu 9.1 32 bit on my old desktop. Encouraged by that success (and the ease of it), this week I built my own system, which will be my primary system. I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.1 (AMD 64 version) and after the partition selection screen (I chose to partition the entire disk), I immediately get a white blank screen. Then nothing happens. I also tried with Ubuntu 9.1 32 bit, XUbuntu 9.1 64, Ubuntu 9.04 all had the same results.
Not sure if the hardware specs are required, but here they are: 1) Motherboard: MSI KA 780 G 2) Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630 3) Memory: Corsair 2 x 2 GB, 800 MHz twinx 6400 c6 4) Harddrive: Hitachi sata 300, 1 TB
In desperation, I have started windows XP installation and that seems to progress fine at its leisurely pace. Its formatting the drive right now. During one of the attempts, it did install something*, since after that I see a new ubuntu partition after that. But when I boot from hard disk I get a black screen with cursor. I tried to search thru the forums and nobody seemed to have this exact problem, one guy got a white screen with cursor after a graphics card install, which is not the same. I dont want to go back to windows.
I am new to linux and have searched over a period of days on the internet for any reference to installing XUBUNTU 10.10 onto a brand new hard drive that has no operating system on it I have successfuly made the CD using this PC I am on now and Nero Burning Rom from my Nero 9 aplication but I have built a new PC that I wish to put XUMBUTU onto
I've been tempted to try the eeebuntu over my Asus eeePC 1005AH and I've been surprised how simple and smooth the installation went, every component and device has been recognized correctly, from the devise manager is possible to turn on and of the WiFi, Bluetooth, webcam, the 6-cell battery provide me the regular 6+ hours, etc. However I can't get in internet. Managing the network connections from the Control Center I have added manually the SSID and security parameters, or I beleive so becasue differently from windows there is no utility that scan the available wifi networks around.
I am trying to upgrade my RHEL5 kernel.What file should i download for my i686 system.Googling gives a number of options...of which I feel ovzkernel-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5.i686.rpm is the right one for me?Is it the latest stable kernel version...and how to install it?
Our LAN is connected to internet via leased line, and it is getting slow at peak times.We doubt someone might be downloading files of huge size.Instead of SSH-ing into each system and finding out the download size (ethstatus), is it possible to view from a network bandwidth monitoring software?
How to repartition a hard drive using Mepis 3.3, none of the listed sites will open to me. Is this the best software to repartition a new Windows 7 hard drive? I notice there are later versions of the Mepis software.
First I go to the following URL to download the latest version of VLC Player, which I greatly prefer to Totem or any other standard Linux video/audio player: http://www.fileguru.com/Movie-Player/download. After I click on the "Download" link, a new window appears which asks me if I want to 1) Open with Archive Manager (default) or 2) Save File. There is a drop down arrow next to the first choice which only gives "Other..." as the only other choice. Well, if I choose the first option, the download appears as an .exe file in the "Downloads" window.
A window with "Download Error" in its Title Bar appears with the following message in it: "/tmp/VLC_Player_Setup-3.exe could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences." I don't even know yet how to even open up an .exe file in Linux, despite repeated research.
I have a dual boot-up desktop system with Window XP and Fedora. Linux was installed after Windows came installed with the system. The system has only one hard drive and both the OS are on the same drive but on different paritions. Is it possible to copy the whole Fedora Linux parition to a new hard drive and then install the new hard drive on an entirely desktop to make it work like the old system? Will all the setting in Fedora remain the same? All the file and enviornment variables or the changes made will be retained on a new system? What to do? Which software to use?
I can use Ubuntu with my onboard wireless in my IBM Lenovo Laptop but it doesn't work here and in other linux distro's I have tried I need to do a lot of code manipulation with the help of experts on the forums telling me what to do. I want to install Fedora 14 and maybe even try other Distro's as they come out without needing to be a Linux expert. So I want to go down to Best Buy a couple miles down the road and buy a USB WIFI Wireless thing.
I consider setting up a new system with one of the upcoming new Radeon graphics cards. I would like to know whether this is possible or whether there is a problem I overlooked.
I thought of setting up the system with vesa mode and afterwords downloading/installing the latest radeon or fglrx driver as soon as they are available.would that work? how long does it typically take until these drivers are available?
sdb is my test environment. sda is still around since its the only way I can power down my system. 11.3 and 11.4 hang on power down. (Another subject) I have the 11.4 ms4 dvd made and I want to install to sdb without carrying over any of the settings. In the past I've just formatted and installed but the settings for the user and root were saved. Want to do a total fresh install. Reason for not carrying over setting is problems with Akonadi not starting (tried all the trouble shooting tips), and Vbox freezing keyboard and mouse when installing XP.
Currently I have a 500gb drive with Ubuntu on half of it. The other half is a soon to be Win7 install. I just picked up an identical drive for real cheap last week and I am interested in advice for going about setting up a RAID 1 for redundancy. My first road block is do I want software or hardware RAID? Is this even possible with a dualboot system? If hardware RAID is the way to go does anyone have a particular brand or model they could recommend?

How do I get applications intended for Windows to install on my Fedora 13 system? I assumed I could load Fedora and be able to install software that I purchased and ran in Windows...Is this true or am I going to be going back to Windows?
I just bought a new emachines et1331g-03w I can get the cd to boot and give me the choices. When I select run from cd it acts like it is getting ready to load and then the screen goes black and hangs.I have tried both 8.04.3 32-bit desktop and 9.10 32-bit desktop both give the same problem. Both cds work fine on other computers.
