I am trying to set up a server on my home network which will eventually host rails. I am not great in linux server and i try to follow the prompt. I did succesfully get to a black screen which then prompts me to a username then password to then do anything ( assuming). However here what i try to do
I kinda fellow his tutorial http://www.ubuntugeek.com/step-by-step-ubuntu-11-04-natty-lamp-server-setup.html but however the command where not 100% like him not in same order but same idea.
Then i want to install ubuntu server with gui here the command i try with
sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Which however give me the following error
Err http... inRelease w Failed to fetch ht... So been ignored if i try the desktop one i get E: unable to locate package ubuntu E: unable to locate package desktop
So i am assuming i am not connected to the internet, so i try the following command
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
here the output it gives me and i know my gateway on my laptop is 192.168.1.1
address: 192.168.1.148 netmask: 255.255.255.0 network: 192.168.1.0 broadcasts: 192.168.1.255 gateway: 192.168.1.1
Btw i do not know the command to get out of vi and saving it.
