Your CPU is not 32-bit. If you have a 64-bit installation, then your CPU is 64-bit. The 64-bit installer will not even boot or run on a 32-bit CPU.

Apart from being able to address more memory and possible speed improvements, you should download and install the 64-Bit version for your new UEFI capable machine that comes with Windows 8 or a newer version of Windows. While 32-Bit support for UEFI systems is being worked on, there are currently no standard 32-Bit images available that boot in UEFI mode.

I had some issues to in cuda installation. The best/simpler way to solve the errors that worked for me was use sudo aptitude install cuda instead of "sudo apt-get install cuda". apt-get doesn't take care of the errors, aptitude suggest a way to solve the errors and everything worked!

I would say that this error is not due to the installation of the ia32-libs package, but it is a problem that has arisen before. Does the error also occur when you try to install any other package? Try this: sudo apt-get -f install If it does not fix it, edit your question with the new info.

Your computer will not boot from DVD then you have one other option. Booting your computer from USB memory stick. You can use many softwares to achieve this, but I personally like UNetBootin which supports windows, mac and linux. You will need to have a ubuntu ISO file that you want to install, and a suitable usb memory stick (above 4GB storage is fine). ...

You will have to install the 32-bit version. Although techincally possible, it is very hard to emulate an x86 (64-bit) architecture with a 32-bit processor. Some processors might support this, but I would recommend going with the 32-bit option.

No, ppa and repositories are configured as a part of system configuration (apt) and not as a part of user accounts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu You need access to root, ie an administrative login, to configure the system however.

In order to properly install Ubuntu a working Internet connection is needed. In case the installer wants to download files it will stall in case it could not connect. When installing on bare metal the Ubuntu live session will already have drivers for most network adapters including wireless adapters to be able to connect. This is different when installing ...

You should really replace the system completely. Only, if you absolutely have no choice and a gun to your head, you can check the following guide: http://users.digitalkingdom.org/~rlpowell/hobbies/debian_arch_up/index.html It's for debian but you need to be an expert anyway, so you should be able to apply it.

Unfortunately, Chrome is really heavy on resources. If you open too many tabs on heavy scripted websites (like social medias, web apps, or flash websites) and if you have a lot of chrome extensions running (especially Adblock, unfortunately), your Chrome is prone to crashes. If you want to know what is using most of your memory or CPU in Chrome, try the ...

Met exactly the same problem (Linux Mint 17, kernel 3.17) Found solution is: # - as root user $ cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source $ tar -xvf vmnet.tar # - edit the file vmnet-only/netif.c and replace the line that looks like dev = alloc_netdev(sizeof *netIf, deviceName, VNetNetIfSetup); to dev = alloc_netdev(sizeof *netIf, deviceName, ...

The simplest way is to make 2 backups: 1 system backup (use http://CloneZilla.org disk-to-image) 1 data backup (use whatever software you're using now). Read here for more info. Then, boot from the LiveCD, format both sda3 (system) and 4 (swap) (without repartitioning) and continue the install. If anything goes wrong during the installation or if ...

1st Option: Doesn't one of the listed packages complete the dependency? You can try installing one of the listed ones and then try again. 2nd option (only if the first one fails): If you'd like to install the exact package, try the following in a bash terminal: sudo -i cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d echo "deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring ...

Your error indicates that you tried to download VLC, and the download was interrupted before it finished. This would be a good way to install VLC in Windows, but it is not the best way to install VLC in Ubuntu. The best way to install VLC in Ubuntu is to open the Ubuntu Software Center, search for VLC, and install it by clicking the Install button. This will ...

Oh no. Dumb answer. When Ubuntu decided so nicely to upgrade my java version for me, it blew away my Oracle JDK and replaced it with Open JDK. The old hsdis plugin only works with Oracle JDK, as far as I remember. The solution was to build a new hsdis that works with Open JDK. Thankfully somebody (actually a few people) have already done most of the work: ...
