Ubuntu 14.04 upgrade succeeds on 3-yr-old computer

Posted Today at 01:55 PM by flshope

After my traumatic upgrade experience on my old computer, I was not looking forward to risking a disaster with my primary machine. However, after much backing up of data and hand-wringing, I went ahead with the Ubuntu 14.04 upgrade today. It went OK and took about 3 hours including package download. The machine appears to be operating normally, graphics and all. I don't detect any speed degradation with the display or applications software. Sometimes you win one!

Apprendre le français

Posted Yesterday at 03:31 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Just call me the projects guy. I can always seem to start projects, but rarely actually finish them =)

I picked up learning French again, primarily because I want to be able to read Descartes in his native tongue, but also because I started learning French in high school and never seemed to get far with it.

I give you the pleasure of installing all extra packages you need after a hard disk installation of Exton|OS Light. Use Synaptic for that. You can of course also install new...

Debian doesn't mount pen drive correctly.

Posted 09-07-2014 at 12:31 AM by s.verma

There is a case of Debian when after installing it via pen drive made by unetbootin (or may be any other usb iso creater), it works fine with a full desktop environment except for one thing, "the pen drive/removable drive doesn't mount with read/write or just incorrectly"
