Crash2108
Hi, I restarted my ubuntu desktop and when I went to look at my extHDD it wasn't there. First instinct is to look in the drive manager and it's not there either! What's up?
zbrahead91-dedi
z3r0-c001: The hardware varies WAAAY too much
All I can advise is to lookup in ubuntu forums your laptop's (I assume) model number in ubuntu forums for compatibility
z3r0-c001

Limonovich
I am backing up my Wubi install. What package/software exists for linux that can view root.disk or similar files, so that i can copy over my files and settings when I have a proper ubuntu partition?
ZykoticK9
JuanJose, i just downloaded and successfully ran Tibia on my system - i'm guessing the error you are getting is due to not having 3d graphics (though it's surprising this game would need it)

Guest11262
Whenever I have the computer lock or go to standby or screensaver, there is about a thirty second delay where the screen gets dimmer before actually locking. Anyone know what may be causing this?
pionar
wols: /dev/sdb would be if you had a second hard drive
wols
