I always use liveUSBs because they are far, far faster. A liveCD likely will not give you a good experience. This is where you can download Ubuntu. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop This is how you can turn any flash drive into a liveUSB using the downloaded .iso. If you need to use a CD, the link should be on this page as well. ...

With WUBI, Ubuntu installs some kind of "nested" partition for itself within the main Windows partition, I think. The installation is like installing any other Windows program, which means it can also be uninstalled easily. But since the partition is inside Windows, if something goes wrong with the Windows partition, then Ubuntu won't be able to recover ...

I think the best way is to use Linux Live USB Creator to boot your USB from ubuntu .iso file. you can download the .exe file from here and if you want to use it in ubuntu, I thimk you can run it with wine

Do not resize your partitions. You won't be able to install Windows and dual-boot with Ubuntu. You should delete all your partitions including the extended partition with that huge swap space. You can download Ultimate Boot CD and burn it on a regular CD. It is a small 580MB iso image. This is the direct link for download. After you burn the UBCD iso ...

I think Avinash Raj answered most of this question in the comments, but I'll go ahead and write an answer just to square it off. In your screen shot Gparted has locked the partitions of the drive (sda) because you are using the partition sda1 (/) to run Ubuntu and Gparted. To edit the partitions on sda you will need to boot a live cd. When you do this the ...

There are many distinguishing features between a live session and normal session. At the first shot it comes in my mind that there is no real user in a live session. One can exploit this. So, there would not be any gid greater than 999 in /etc/passwd corresponds to any real user except nobody user. $ awk -F: '($3>=1000){print $1}' /etc/passwd nobody ...

No, the name is arbitrary, you can't assume anything based on that. However, the Live session does have a few quirks such as: $df -h | grep -w / /cow 2.0G 42M 1.9G 3% / As you can see, the special device /cow is mounted on /. I'm not sure how portable this is, I doubt it will be the same for non Ubuntu Linuxes and it may also change in future ...

I had the same problem yesterday on a Maxdata Server. Similar problem you had, that's why I found your question. My server started and after some time it spilled out many of those IP-Config: no response after xx secs - giving up messages and lead to a kernel panic after about three minutes. I spend almost a whole day on trying to solve this issue, but I ...

Use actual version of Knoppix. I encountered similar problem with RescueCD (Gentoo based) on the same hardware platform (Atom N2600). Knoppix starts as live system without any problems. Next maintenance, eg. disk partitioning & installation to disk can be carried out.

Thank you for the suggestion. I wasn't able to verify if it works or not. From what I saw the mac boot option screen would not show any linux boot disk or usb I installed, neither would grub ( i think it has something to do with the age of the computer be because a newer macbook displayed both the live disk and usb) I ended up using a friends mac to make a ...

If the computer is to be used exclusively by Linux, my recommendation is to install in BIOS mode. Pretend that the computer is an old BIOS-only PC and it should work. You may need to hold down the Option (or Alt) key as you power on the computer to get a boot menu enabling you to boot from the CD, though. If you follow this suggestion, be sure to partition ...

http://askubuntu.com/a/436700/248158 is a great answer but if you no longer have the file iso/casper/filesystem.manifest-remove to look at the list or just want another way you may be able to get the information (in more ugly form) from /var/log/apt. Assuming you have the oldest compressed history.log file available (which you normally should have if you ...

I think it has something to do with some voodoo with ubuntu seeds (can some one who knows more elaborate please.. I'd like to know too ;) ) The installer seed defines what packages are needed for installation but removed later. However I don't know whether this has become obsolete as it seems to be last updated at the time of gutsy gibbon. At the time of ...
