Ubuntu :: 10.04 64 Bit - Not Recommended For Daily Use

May 26, 2010

So I'm getting a new laptop soon, and it ships with Windows 7 64-bit. So I assume I have to use 10.04 64-bit. I noticed that the download page says "not recommended for daily use". I was wondering why this is, and if there were any things I need to look out for when using Ubuntu and 64-bit. I read the older FAQ thread in the closed 64-bit forum, but I wanted to make sure I got more recent information.

Ubuntu :: Recommended Version Is The X86 And Not The 64-bit Version?

Mar 19, 2011

When downloading ubuntu, I see that the recommended version is the X86 and not the 64-bit version! Why is that? My system is a I7 920 (OC to 4 GHz), 6GB DDR3 ram, and GeForce GTX 480 graphic! Will I be able to install all the drivers, and run all programs in the 64-bit version, is it backward compatible with 32-bit programs just like in windows 7, or do I really need to install the 32-bit version

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Newer Version Of Network-manager In Lucid - From Daily Trunk Builds Ppa

Aug 9, 2010

This is only for Lucid and Maverick, as there's no 0.8.1 builds for other releases in this ppa. Why?

Because today there seems to be a fuss about 3g usb-modems. And as of network-manager version 0.8.1, there is added support for those and some more.

The release features for current version 0.8.1, from gnome.org

Lucid ships with an earlier version and there's a ppa for daily builds (that could break, so use it on need-only-basis).

Visit the link, or google: NetworkManager daily trunk builds for ubuntu

Follow the steps on the site to add it in the repositories.

After that, it's just a simple


apt will update the needed files. Then reboot, you're done.

I strongly recommend, that you disable the PIN code query for your SIM card and enable 'Connect automatically' from:

As this seems to be more reliable than connecting/reconnecting manually from the applet list. After that, it's plug&play.

I use the modem Huawei E1820 (uses option1 driver) and for me, this update...
- gives you the ability to choose the desired network; 3G only, 3G pref., EDGE etc.
- Then it shows the signal strength and the technology used atm.; HSPA, UMTS etc.

And the main reason I installed it, bluetooth DUN support. So far it has been working great with Lucid on 32bit architecture, and I don't have to disconnect the modem between boots, or after suspend/resume.

Ubuntu :: How To Have Desktop Effects Without Installing FGLRX - Lucid Daily

Apr 24, 2010

I have a Dell Studio 1537 Laptop with what lspci calls an "ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3400" graphics card. Today I downloaded a daily image of Lucid, threw it on a USB drive, and booted it up. As I go to install the restricted driver for my graphics card, I notice that clicking on a panel item triggers the star burst effect. Come to find out that I can set desktop effects to "extra" and get smooth wobbly windows and everything.

Why are desktop effects working? I've always had to install FGLRX before, did the open source driver somehow get 3D support? Am I missing something? I almost feel like Compiz is performing better-- smoother, less tearing, etc.

Ubuntu Installation :: Ubuntu 11.04 With Hp Mini - Won't Boot - Goes To The Desktop Theme Then Freezes With Three Warning Messages

Jun 9, 2011

I have a hp mini 1033cr. Awhile ago I installed ubuntu netbook edition, well I was new to Ubuntu so I clicked upgrade. Well everything was going good and then it restarted. when I came up to the log in page I typed my password and now it won't boot. it goes to the desktop theme but then freezes with three warning messages.

1st could not update ICEauthority file /home/adam/.ICEauthority

2nd There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libgcond-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)

3rd Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/adam/desktop, /home/adam/.nautilus

I have tried a fresh install with a disc I burnt and ran with my external dvd drive. Well guess what it decided to not boot from it. I have also tried several other discs including a windows xp disc. it always boots back to the hard drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 10.10 Desktop Version

Nov 4, 2010

I'm trying to install the desktop version on my laptop but i'm having an issues. I wrote the .iso file on a CD and restart my pc to boot. So -> the pc founds the medium, i'm choosing the language, i'm choosing "Install ubuntu" and nothing happens. The dots srarts to blink and that's all. When i press anykey opens an cmd promt (something like that) and there's a lot of errors - for example: ... file failed to open due to unknown user id", some files are missing and so on. I tried "try ubuntu without installing" but the same thing. I hear a sound (i guess this the "srart sound" of ubuntu) and that's all. The orange screen, the icon in the middle and the blinking dots. I made two CDs - one burned with win 7 integrated soft - right click and "burn disk image", and other burned with infra recorder. Nothing changes.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Beta To Release Recommended?

Apr 1, 2010

I'm fed up with Gentoo and would like to migrate to Ubuntu. I just installed 10.04 Beta, but I'm wondering if I should continue configuring my system. Is it possible/easy/painless to upgrade to the release version when it comes out? Or should I stop investing any work into the beta right now and wait for the release?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading With Recommended Apps & Settings?

Oct 8, 2010

I was wondering: Is there a way to upgrade to a new Ubuntu version without completely reinstalling the system and to use the recommended apps and settings of the new version?

Reason I ask is that almost every time I upgraded to a new version by using the update-manager and than later installed that new Ubuntu version on another computer from scratch, I noticed that there are some differences. For example let's say the new version promoted a new UI design or some default apps have been replaced. These changes have not been applied to the upgraded version.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From F13 To F15 - Recommended?

May 24, 2011

I am running a very stable F13 on my little box and I was thinking to upgrade from F13 directly to F15 using the preupgrade-cli tool. Is this recommended, or should I go to F14 first? I would like to skip that step:

The F13 is my home server with a lot of services:
- IMAP (dovecot)
- Postfix
- Postgresql
- apache (tons of php)
- vmware workstation 7.1.4
- dhcpd
- named
- samba
- squid

I am worried that the upgrade will break something. I spent a lot of time setting these things up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop I386 Version?

Jan 8, 2010

im trying to install ubuntu 9.10 desktop i386 version, but i simply cant do it! I have tried for hours now. I boot my computer, the cd-room boots, i choose language from the list and press install ubuntu, after that i see the ubuntu logo blinking and in few minutes it gets black and shows "Input Not Supported" and its just bumping around the screen! I had a feeling that maybe my monitor (ASUS) does not support ubuntu so i tried with a very old syncmaster monitor, but similar message appeared! What could be the problem?
