Re: can ubuntu's update manager be hacked?

I do not recall changing my password requirements and at the momemt it is not a big deal for me but I was curious as to why a password is required only sometimes in Update Manager.

I came across 'sudo -k' which will force passwords thereafter.
I will invoke it the next time this occurs.

Re: High-End Phone + Open Source OS?

"Rooting" simply means to run software as the root user, it's akin to running "sudo" on a normal Linux machine. No modifications to Android's source is required to get root access.

Re: Creating a Wi Fi hotspot with a 7 inch Android Tab?

Are there any devices other than mobile phones that can make a wi fi hotspot?

I have a mobile broadband modem, with it's sim card, but it is a USB device.

It would be good if there was a way to make the micro sd card port a USB port. I may have to buy a Navman.

Re: Should you install Linux alongside Windows?

It is not true that in Windows you get a virus on your computer for not having any passwords on your log on or computer settings. Viruses are installed on a computer by going onto sites that are not reputable and downloading software from them. For example we have all read about fake websites that c...

Re: A required DVD drive device driver is missing.

When you do your reformatting, what process do you use exactly. Is the drive set up as a Windows 7 install and you try to boot to the DVD to reinstall? Can you boot to the Vista DVD without any messages? Have you checked to see if there might be a firmware update for your DVD drive? I have never rea...

If it got to the reboot where it switches to the hard drive, it may restart, but you say it won't start again.. What exactly won't start again, the install or t...
