It was a BIOS firmware problem, While the motherboard supported 8gb of RAM, the motherboard firmware (Dell) didn't. After updating this it worked - for anyone reading who has a Dell Inspiron 530, with a foxconn g33m motherboard, I did have to use HPUSBDISK tool to create a DOS usb to flash the bios, as I received memory errors when I used Rufus

I'm getting this same exact error "hash sum mismatch" on both Ubuntu 14.04 as well as Ubuntu 16.04, and only 16.04 complains about the encryption algorithm. The source of this problem seems to be twofold: apt deprecated sha1 recently, which explains the warnings we have been getting from the google repo since the latest LTS was released. Google was going ...

According to your computer specification, you should use 32bit system. 64bit system can use more than 4GBs of RAM, but it's useless when you have only one. What is more, 32bit would be safer for this processor. Lubuntu is the most lightweight distribution (AFAIK), so this is also good for this computer.

Go for the version it is suppose to be able to hold. Intel Atom N450 is 64-bit so I would stick to a 64-bit and match the minimum specs for any of the Ubuntu flavours. lUbuntu and xUbuntu are options. Beyond that: do consider alternatives that are around but not Ubuntu; like Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux. Regarding: What will perform better, 64-bit ...

A quick Google search shows that your processor should be good to run 64 bit. Look here under specifications. Will it run smooth? That depends on how you use it. I have run into a rare issue once or twice where I had to load 32 bit libraries to get something to work. But another Google of the issue led me to a fix for that. Here's what I would do, ...

The simple solution is to disable Secure Boot, as described on this page of mine. To be sure, it's better to run with Secure Boot enabled, but if the feature isn't working as designed, it's a liability. For more thorough diagnostics, I recommend you start by examining your EFI boot entries by typing sudo efibootmgr -v, as in: $ sudo efibootmgr -v ...

I found a "solution": first I purged teamviewer sudo apt-get purge teamviewer then deleted ~\.local\share\TeamViewer11 then update ubuntu, reinstall teamviewer, and it works

Thanks bmaupin! For me this also works on a freshly installed 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 (no upgrade from older Ubuntu) Enabled 32-bit support (see also: http://www.unixmen.com/enable-32-bit-support-64-bit-ubuntu-13-10-greater/): sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Installed openjdk and required plugins for ...

I think I finally found an answer to this problem. In the version 15.10 the TLP utilities has been introduced as default. So on dist upgrade you get a default configuration in TLP saying WOL_DISABLE=Y Even https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wake-on-LAN says if the computer does not wake after suspend/hibernate when using TLP, set the WOL_DISABLE value to ...

Here's my solution. I had to pull answers from several locations. My graphics card is the NVidia GeForce GTX 950. The first thing I did was download the latest stable NVidia driver from nvidia.com (for me, it was 361.42). I was sure to select the latest stable and certified driver. It's a ".run" file, by the way. Search on how to install .run files ...

You said that the system could only ever run 32bit Windows. That likely means your processor in the system is a 32-bit processor. The same limitations apply here. You are limited by the architecture of the CPU in the system, which is 32-bit only.

This could be a hardware or a BIOS firmware problem. First if all I'd try to identify that the RAM modules are OK, by putting the new ones into slots 0-1 (or which definitely work). If that doesn't help, I would check the modules on another motherboard. If that doesn't help, I'd try to update the BIOS firmware. If that sounds too risky, try replacing the ...

Yes it will run perfectly. Your system resembles mine and after doing a little driver research i found that your laptop is good to run Ubuntu. and google chrome will also run smoothly on it , no problems :)

In usual cases, you can run 32-bit applications on 64-bit Ubuntu, but you won’t be fully utilizing your system. However, the vice versa is not true. You won’t be able to run 64-bit applications on a 32-bit machine (just imagine, you can place a small container into a big container, but you can’t do that the other way round). When installing applications in ...

Yep, the Intel B950 is a 64-bit processor so installing Ubuntu 16.04 (64-bit) should work fine and allow you to run 32 and 64-bit software... Make a bootable flash drive and give it a test.

According to intel atom N450 supports 64bit but for performance reasons you should choose lubuntu 32 bit. Just keep in mind that some applications support only 64bit nowadays. One example is google chrome which has no 32 bit installer for linux anymore and if you use chromium you can't install flash player (you must find an older pepper flash from unofficial ...

I had this issue too until I installed 32-bit java7 (which is not provided by default in the 16.04 repositories; they have java8). I grabbed an old unsupported one from oracle; there is hopefully a nicer way to do it via the package manager and openJDK but I just needed to get things working. So I think it is an issue with the VPN software not liking ...
