Looks like Linux is getting more popular every day! That's good. Deeival, are you new to Linux or what?

EDIT: these guys rock my ass off!

FFS Deeival click on the update icon! >.<
I guess I could. :D Ever since the last Kernel **** up I'm kinda reluctant to click that button.

I'm fairly new. I had it installed about a year ago, but I could not get my wireless stuff to work. Then it's been on my laptop since December, and on my desktop for about 2 weeks.

I'm getting a hang of Ubuntu now, but there's still something that confuses me... if anyone could help:

How do I list the contents of a folder on my desktop? I thought it was:

ls ~Desktop/School/

But it doesn't work..

2.6.17-11 generic kernel seriously reduced my memory usage after the update fix so it installs properly :p

You are missing a "/". "ls ~/Desktop/School" will do it. When you use just "~Desktop" the ~ does nothing.

my laptop desktop, as my desktop PC is out of action right now. (Pending motherboard/driver malfunction.)



I know it's off topic, but would Ubuntu make a good Linux Distribustion to dual-boot with XP should I have to wipe my hard drive and start over (again)?

EDIT: I'd say that Dash-9, Putz, looks purdy good (new paint, probably) but I shudder to think of what the inside of the cab, I guess thats what it is, looks like... they can sometimes be a tad, errr, rough...
