comment apt-get update Bad header line on all udpates
Try going to gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise-security/main/… and downloading files with your browser (just to check if it works), proxy might be blocking your updates.

comment Can't Boot EDD information not available
Happened to me on Ubuntu 12.04 stable, not beta. Tried nolapic, acpi=off and edd=on in grub (and combinations of those options, as suggested on ubuntu forums). I've managed to get to mounting root filesystem failed. It's a very strange issue.

comment sudo in the Terminal seems not to accept password input
Remember that the terminal WONT echo back asterisks for characters in your password. If you know that and you are completely sure that you put in the right password (for a user with sudo priviledge): try a different terminal (perhaps the one at alt+ctrl+F1). You can also use GUI sudo (for example gksudo). As soon as your system is up to date check if the problem is still present and if it is -- report a bug.

comment Sound Logout Ubuntu 12.04 & Mac OS 9 Theme
Wrong system ;) He wants Mac OS 9, which is an entirely different beast than UNIX-based Mac OS X. For the old gnome/mate there are some themes (like ubuntu-art.org/content/…), but nothing shows up for gnome3 or unity.

comment Wireless network not connecting in Kubuntu 11.04
If you changed kernel (updated your system) you have to recompile compat-wireless again.

comment How to move from 10.04 32bit to 11.04 64bit?
I like to compare 32 to 64 bit migration to ip4 to ip6 migration. It might be postponed several times (by NAT and PAE respectively), but it will happen. And it has been around for a long time, so it's ready for its prime time.
