I have completed a computer science/software engineering degree, however I have decided the word of working in programming is not for me. My interest it computers and programming will always remain my hobby though.

comment How do I write raw bytes to a sound-device?
As an side note, if you're interested in using sound manipulation with the terminal, you can write or read raw audio using the pacat tool.

comment Stucked in the grub command prompt
Don't worry about messing things up, it's the best way to learn. I've stuffed the bootloader up many times in the past and it took me awhile to become confident enough in knowing that I could fix it whenever it broke.

comment Can you give me a step by step guide to change folder ownership from root?
sorry, ignore everything I just said above for the moment. I think I have misread your fstab file because of the line formatting in the comments section. Could you please either edit your original question to include the contents of your /etc/fstab file or paste it to pastebin

Try this: sudo gedit /etc/fstab now find this line: UUID=F328-FCD2 /MainDrive vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1 and change it to UUID=F328-FCD2 /MainDrive vfat utf8,umask=000,gid=46 0 1 (notice the different umask value) now save it and execute this command sudo mount -a And see if that fixes your problem. If it does, report back and i'll explain why.

can you please post the contents of your /etc/fstab file? You can see it if you type less /etc/fstab in a terminal.

comment Will my existing operating system be deleted? Or will Ubuntu be installed alongside Mac OS X?
It's worth mentioning that even though it's pretty safe to install, computers are very complicated and there's always a chance that something will go wrong. It's the unfortunate truth when it comes to playing around with operating systems. But it's still well worth installing and you're bound to learn a lot from it. Just make sure you back up any essential files before you do anything.
