I am extremely frustrated at the internet speed since installing Ubuntu 8.10
Back in Windows XP, i could get upwards of 800 kb/s when downloading stuff from firefox. right now, im trying to download sound drivers for ubuntu because i cant hear anything... and this 5 mb file is downloading at around 5kb/s
it is absolutely frustrating.
so after doing some researching, i found that this seems to work well.
Unfortunately, when i try to edit /etc/rc.local
it says i dont have privledges.
how do i change this so i can edit this file...
The real question im trying to ask is...
I need to change it from read only to non read only so i can edit it.
When i go into properties it says that i am not the owner therefore i cannot change it. I am, however the only user registerd for this UBUNTU OS.
how do i become "owner" so i have privledges.
