I have been a part of Ubuntu user population for about two hours right now. After installing it on my Dell Inspiron 1520 that I bought so long ago, I jumped in really well, but, I have a few questions:
Once I check "Main Server" and check 'Canonical Partners' option and then the 'Broadcom Corporation: BCM-4311 802.11a/b/g" popped under 'Additional Drivers', how long does it take to install?
Also, I see GeForce 8600M (proprietary, tested), but when I try to install it as well, it gets stuck on the "Applying Changes" portion of what I am thinking is the UPDATE phase.
This is happening on both, and after 30 minutes, it is still stating, "Applying changes...", so what do I do? A restart did not resolve this, it sticks about 1/4 inch in on the orange bar every time... what does a new Ubuntu user do? Please advise.
