If that is the entire contents of the file you have some misconfigurations 1)Are you trying to do a DHCP or a staic ip? 2)you misspelled interfaces, see if that is a forum typo or a system typo 3) try this for a static ip # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static ...

You do not specify the boot method, using a DVD or through USB. In either case: the Linux kernel has loaded correctly; I think it has located and loaded the initrd image; it is now looking for the main squashfs compressed filesystem, and cannot locate it. Basically, it cannot find the CD/DVD unit. As suggested by @WhiteStone, you may have a corrupt ...

You could install winetricks, and type this in the terminal: sudo apt-get install winetricks and then run winetricks, and then you can see it in preference.

AMD64 image is not for AMD CPUs, but exactly what you need. 64-bit image that will work on Core i7.

Always expect performance loss (at best, and total incompatibility at worst) when running anything over Wine. In some cases the performance impact is small enough not to matter, but in others it will be significant enough to make the software near-useless. Your options: Check the WineHQ database to see if anyone has tips for getting FL Studio to run ...

Try resolving the dependencies manually, i.e. apt-get install libcheese7 apt-get install libcheese-gtk23 apt-get install libglapi-mesa If that doesn't work, try using aptitude, as its dependency resolution is often more effective than apt-get apt-get install aptitude && aptitude -f install <thing-it-failed-on>

Try to install older version of hostapd. I have on ubuntu 15.04 hostapd v1.0 and ap-hotspot v0.3-1 from webupd8 ppa. There is instruction how to do this. https://askubuntu.com/a/453889/316028

Yes, there is a difference. I had the same issue when booting the installer from a USB - is this what you are doing? If you have used some utility to create it, it may not have worked correctly with the newest image. Just do (please, make sure you put YOUR actual paths ;-) ) the following from some linux installation (Alt+F2 will work even from that same ...

I am not a programmer or computer geek. Am having similar issues lately, above suggestions do not resolve it. Since last updates Ubuntu will either directly crash the Firefox Browser and/or the Libra Office Write program when attempting to open them, OR after a 5 to 15 minute delay after starting up the computer, Canonical will suddenly begin keeping the ...

I know it is a bit late but I had the same problem (except I installed xen 4.5). I solved the issue by running /etc/init.d/xencommons start at every startup. Hope this can help someone.

My understanding is that Ubuntu takes up less resources that what Windows does, so I would say give it a go. If it does not work out the worst that will happen is that you will have to clean it all down and start again. From the sound of the previous posts though, it sounds like you will be OK. Most of my posts these days seem to have the letters (vm) in ...

Your PC could run a 64bit version of Ubuntu however for your system I'd personally stick with the 32bit version... It'll run quicker.

Yes - as statet on wikipedia and the AMD Website it is indeed an 64bit processor and capable of running 64bit Ubuntu.

To pass this error, you need to install X11 library development headers, for instance: sudo apt-get install libx11-dev:i386 However when configuring wine, it won't solve the problem completely, as you'll get another error about FreeType 32-bit development files not found which would be more challenging (unless configuring --without-freetype). So the ...

Are you still trying to do this? I (after much frustration) installed LabVIEW 8.5 32-bit on my new 64-bit Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 (LMDE2) machine today. Should be similar for Ubuntu. You probably already did, but for those who don't know the first thing to do is set up multiarch (the ability to run 32-bit programs on 64-bit machines): sudo dpkg ...

I had what seems like a very similar problem per your description and was able to resolve the booting to Ubuntu (Live) and also Ubuntu installation problem by adding the acpi=off kernel parameter during the LiveCD boot and later adding the acpi= parameter as permanent Grub option once Ubuntu had installed. I've detailed the steps I did in this answer. Note ...

I had similar problems with installing Ubuntu on my new Lenovo W540 portable workstation (also a dual-boot setup). I tried installing 15.04, 14.04, and 14.04.2 -- both amd64 and x86 versions with to avail. While I've been using Ubuntu for about two years now I'm still rather n00b in the under-the-hood side and felt that I was not getting ahead with resolving ...

Another solution is replacing /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/vmnet.tar with working one taken from VMware-Player-7.1.bundle. You don't even have to wait for installer to finish, just copy the file somewhere else and abort. Next run VMware-Workstation10.bundle (in my case) replace vmnet.tar and run your working Workstation

To check packages installed with an architecture: dpkg-query -W -f='${Package}\t\t${Architecture}\n' | grep 'i386' dpkg-query -W -f='${Package}\t\t${Architecture}\n' | grep 'amd64' Use the line that is not your current architecture (in your case "i386") (and in case someone is unsure: you can check the architecture with uname -a (see How do I check if I ...

Your hardware is enough to run a Linux OS. The difference between LTS and no-LTS is easy to get if you google it. Here is my advice: If you want to run a stable OS, like do some important things, you should use LTS. And if you want to try new features, you'd like newer version more. And for your purpose I think you don't need to worry about the difference ...

I would advise 14.04 Why? Your specs are good enough to support either fine, but you said you have no past experience. 14.04 is an LTS release - or Long Term Support. This means that for 5 years - or until April 2019 - Ubuntu will continue to provide security updates, among others. 15.04 is a regular release. This is only supported to January 2016. For ...

The difference is basically that 14.04 has a longer support period than 15.04 (April 2019 and January 2016 respectively). 14.04 would be a better choice if you are aiming on installing the system and not reformatting for a long period, for example on a server or with the more conservative desktop users. On the other hand, if you are looking for slightly ...

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is a Long Term Support release, meaning you will be able to run it until 2019 and still get system updates. This release is typically considered the more stable. Ubuntu 15.04 is only supported until January 2016. This means that you will have to do a full system upgrade at that time. This release offers some more up-to-date packages, and ...

Don't install 32-bit *-dev packages. dev are almost always just header files. And the header files are almost always the same for all architectures. Just install 32-bit libraries. In this particular case it is libcurl3.
