comment wireshark problems with configuration
i typed groups and it did not say wireshark, when following the advice in the duplicate question it asked for the administrative password and it kept saying the password i typed was wrong when i know it wasnt??? i think this may be the problem, im not sure. Im quite new to this so im not sure if i have configured wireshark-common or even added myself to the group as im not sure how to do that! i will try restart ubuntu now but i think the problem is the administrative password, im just not sure why it says i got it wrong when its the only password i use?

comment Using apt-fast to download torrents
ok thanks mateo, thats all i needed to know, i did initially think that it would make very little difference but if it gained even a fraction more of the speed then it would have been useful for a large file for the sake of typing in a command, thanks

comment windows accidently deleted, ubuntu installation help
@shantanu i want to achieve having ubuntu installed with wifi working, when i download the wifi drives using sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, it try's unpacking but has errors as not enough disk space, so i tried reinstalling using the whole hard drive but i had problems with the partitioning bit which you have now helped me with. Normally after every install i try this SPACE error keeps happening, im quite stuck on how to get around this problem. Im trying every avenue to correct this problem and my questions may seem unclear as im new to this and i dont mean to sound discouraging
