I have just purchased a domain and hosting from www.ipage.com
I am new to website designing. I am learning and sort of overwhelmed with all of this information. At the moment I can not access my ipage from the computers I will talk about later on. I am trying to find a designing program which will be simple and help , but will also display any code so that I can kind of back up the site and learn and be able to use different Programs. If there is any recommendations on any programs or anything please let me know they are greatly appreciated!
Well I now have my friend's boss's old Imac. I believe it is 2004 model. I do NOT have the adminstators password, which is something I would like to change.
I can browse the web on it through my home's wifi provided by Charter.
The version of Safari is pretty old and only displays certain HTML.
Google says to upgrade to a new internet browser. I have tried downloading safari snow leopard and when I would click the .pkg file it would pop up in the installer and would say "missing bill of Materials" . Well When I try to download firefox toward the end of the download it says "mounting failed". I even tried putting the firefox startup file on my flash drive but it refused to open and was shown as a .exe file while on my Imac.
What could I be doing wrong? what could I do to fix these?
Several years ago my cousin put Xubuntu on my laptop. I really enjoyed it and would like to explore many other linux operation systems. I loved being able to download all the free useful applications so easily. That laptop eventually went through a lot of problems and now is Out of commission.
I was Wanting to put some form of linux on my Imac. My old Xubuntu 6.10 i38 disc works in my Toshiba (portege 4000 system unit. serial number No. 91000364PU). Xubuntu starts up and lets me browse the little bit on the information. When I go to the downloading applications program It wont let me download any applications. Is this because I am just using it as a Live Cd?
This laptop runs Windows XP. I downloaded The newest Ubuntu straight to my hard drive from the Ubuntu website. When restarting the computer It asked rather to start up using Windows or Ubuntu. I picked Ubuntu. When it frooze while "verifying installation" then after another start up another error happen and it shut down. I believe this is because Ubuntu uses too much RAM and it can not handle it.
Does anyone know of a reliable very light weight linux that could maybe excel on this computer? I mainly would want this laptop to type and do a few other things.
I have tried that Xubuntu disc in my Imac. It doesn't start from Xubuntu. I also tried an Xubuntu AMD disc by accident. nothing happen.
So I downloaded and burned a copy of the newest Ubuntu and it will not start up from disk on my Imac.
because I do not have the adminstrator password I can not change start up disc in system preferences.
how can I bypass this problem?
I do not know much about computers but I am also very eager to learn learn.
Does anyone know a more effiecent linux to use maybe?
Any help would be so appreiciated! I have been spending so much time trying to get all of these computers to work but I continue to fail. Thank you Again! Once I have them up and running I will continue studying computer designing.
