Re: Re installing Linux Maya Maya/XP

After you chose /dev/sda5, click (or maybe it's double click) on that partition to "edit" it. You'll get a little popup that lets you assign it to "/" (which is root) and an checkbox/option to format it. Set these options, then "ok" out of the popup and from there the ...

Re: skype can't connect

Hi All,

Removed 4.2 from my laptop. Installed 4.3 Ubuntu 12.4 edition. Loaded in OK but software won't run. Have done the same on my desktop and 4.3 runs OK.

The laptop processor is only 866MB - I wonder if this could be the problem.

Ubuntu distribution downloaded and installed but when launching skype the version still shows 4.2 and skype can't connect. The 4.2...

seen problems with 4.2 (people getting warnings to upgrade)
Try 4.3 you can get it from skype directly.
The download asks which distribution is required. Which one should I choose?

Re: Installing wireless drivers in Linux 13 Maya

You might be on to something when you mentioned the kernel being outdated as Linux Mint doesn't enable kernel updates- even the ones from Ubuntu. I had 3.2.0-23 on a LM13 install and the latest is 3.2.0-65 so a lot of issues might be fixed Hi, Your code and the result dellc400@dellc400-Latitude-C40...
