I actually have installed LTS 10.04 Server on a desktop machine in my home. That's totally a command line install, no GUI there. and I have several services on it, like DHCP, DNS, Apache, SSH,...
But This is a notebook computer and Linux 10.10 ubuntu notebook edition
, and is therefore a GUI. I am taking Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop in my school a spart of an IT support course, and this little notebook is a tool to learn that course, as part of my school credit study. My teacher has accepted me to use a 10.10 notebook
, instead of a VirtualBox installation of Ubuntu desktop 10.04 lucid
Sorry, but did I tell you that I have several partitions on this machine, and various file systems, and would that matter to our dicussion of history feature not working?
This is how I configured various partitions on my machine. This was our Lab 1 assignment in this course.
