    RE: Assistance required to create large .img for drivedroid
    If I may gather more information. Can you give use more information in the ISO. Are you creating an ISO from an already installed Linux system, if so what kind? Is this ISO being created from scratch? What programs or files are you using? What files are you using and where are you getting them from? Can you provide us with links to drivedroid?

    RE: HELP!!!
    When you get your new LTS system of Ubuntu installed, browser around this site which should help you get around your system at a comprehensive level. https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/ubuntu-help/index.html Ubuntu has multiple flavors. Scan through this list and find one that you like most. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuFlavors Your system has detected a new version of ubuntu and is prompting you to update. It is better that you stick with the LTS versions as they are supported longer than the non LTS versions. Installing Ubuntu is actually easy. You will be able to get through it even if you claim computer illiteracy.

    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    What mfillpot is saying is true. Archlinux does not setup a user account by default. That is done by you. Read the man page about fstab or look online for documentation. Preferably, the archlinux documentation. Once you understand it, you will be able to fix most mount point issues. Try not to rely too much on YouTube videos as they are only demonstrations of other user's know-how, especially when new to Linux. Have a look at these sites. www.archlinux.com wiki.archlinux.com

    I also noticed you are using the root account. You did not create a user account. In the shell type: cd / This should to the beginning of the file system which is the root directory. Then use "ls" and tell me what is listed

    Interesting. Give me the YouTube link so I can have a look at. In the meantime, I am going to download that ISO file and examine the installation process. Try not to rely on YouTube videos. It is best to read the archlinux wiki. It gives better instructions on installation.
