    RE: Just tried to install Ubuntu and now I'm livid.
    Perhaps the city Montreal is part of a time zone region. You may have to select the region to get the correct time. What region are you in? Example of Time Zone Regions: [code]1) Newfoundland Time, including SE Labrador 2) Atlantic Time - Nova Scotia (most places), PEI 3) Atlantic Time - Nova Scotia - places that did not observe DST 1966-1971 4) Atlantic Time - New Brunswick 5) Atlantic Time - Labrador - most locations 6) Atlantic Standard Time - Quebec - Lower North Shore 7) Eastern Time - Ontario & Quebec - most locations 8) Eastern Time - Ontario & Quebec - places that did not observe DST 1967-1973 9) Eastern Time - Thunder Bay, Ontario 10) Eastern Time - east Nunavut - most locations 11) Eastern Time - Pangnirtung, Nunavut 12) Central Time - Resolute, Nunavut 13) Eastern Standard Time - Atikokan, Ontario and Southampton I, Nunavut 14) Central Time - central Nunavut 15) Central Time - Manitoba & west Ontario 16) Central Time - Rainy River & Fort Frances, Ontario 17) Central Standard Time - Saskatchewan - most locations 18) Central Standard Time - Saskatchewan - midwest 19) Mountain Time - Alberta, east British Columbia & west Saskatchewan 20) Mountain Time - west Nunavut 21) Mountain Time - central Northwest Territories 22) Mountain Time - west Northwest Territories 23) Mountain Standard Time - Creston, British Columbia 24) Mountain Standard Time - Dawson Creek & Fort Saint John, British Columbia 25) Pacific Time - west British Columbia 26) Pacific Time - south Yukon 27) Pacific Time - north Yukon[/code] Ubuntu supports hundreds of languages which would mean it supports the majority of time zones if not all. Discover the time zones ubuntu supports or supported time Zone regions. Then determine that time zone region Montreal is located in.

    What region are you in?

    Example of Time Zone Regions:

    1) Newfoundland Time, including SE Labrador
    2) Atlantic Time - Nova Scotia (most places), PEI
    3) Atlantic Time - Nova Scotia - places that did not observe DST 1966-1971
    4) Atlantic Time - New Brunswick
    5) Atlantic Time - Labrador - most locations
    6) Atlantic Standard Time - Quebec - Lower North Shore
    7) Eastern Time - Ontario & Quebec - most locations
    8) Eastern Time - Ontario & Quebec - places that did not observe DST 1967-1973
    9) Eastern Time - Thunder Bay, Ontario
    10) Eastern Time - east Nunavut - most locations
    11) Eastern Time - Pangnirtung, Nunavut
    12) Central Time - Resolute, Nunavut
    13) Eastern Standard Time - Atikokan, Ontario and Southampton I, Nunavut
    14) Central Time - central Nunavut
    15) Central Time - Manitoba & west Ontario
    16) Central Time - Rainy River & Fort Frances, Ontario
    17) Central Standard Time - Saskatchewan - most locations
    18) Central Standard Time - Saskatchewan - midwest
    19) Mountain Time - Alberta, east British Columbia & west Saskatchewan
    20) Mountain Time - west Nunavut
    21) Mountain Time - central Northwest Territories
    22) Mountain Time - west Northwest Territories
    23) Mountain Standard Time - Creston, British Columbia
    24) Mountain Standard Time - Dawson Creek & Fort Saint John, British Columbia
    25) Pacific Time - west British Columbia
    26) Pacific Time - south Yukon
    27) Pacific Time - north Yukon

    Ubuntu supports hundreds of languages which would mean it supports the majority of time zones if not all. Discover the time zones ubuntu supports or supported time Zone regions. Then determine that time zone region Montreal is located in.

    RE: Dual Boot of Windows 7 and Linux (Debian 7 or Centos 7)
    We may need to edit this files /etc/grub.d/10_linux directly if these previous experiment does not work. I never like to re-install an OS as the first choice to fixing a problem. You will learn more if you try to troubleshoot an issue manually. Re-install an OS if all other troubleshooting options fail. Always keep a second working system as a backup. You want to make sure you are productive in the event of a system failure. You still have two working Linux systems, CentOS and Debian. The bios requires you to manually choose an OS to boot. Make sure you still have that option. The fact that you can still boot-up a system is a plus. Since we will be working with CentOS, keep debian as your working backup.

    RE: Dual Boot of Windows 7 and Linux (Debian 7 or Centos 7)
    Both those files look alike. Ok, lets try something. Back a backup of both the grub.cfg and the boot.cfg files. I like nano but you are free to use whatever works. Save the backup copies of the files as, grub.cfg.backup, and, bott.cfg.backup. Keep then in the directory of their original files. Open grub.cfg in a terminal or gui editor. I gui editor like gedit may be easier.

    The text in between the beginning header;
    ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###

    and the ending header;
    ### END /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###

    should either be commented out or deleted. Commenting them out would be easier for the purpose of reversing what we did. Save the file, and reboot your system. Pay close attention to what the output of the boot process reports.

    Is boot.cfg part of the CentOS system? If so, can you print out the contents of that file. We may need to add an entry for the other OS.

    RE: Bootable DVD and Switchign to Linux Help
    [quote="Nerafim"]Hmm, well thanks a lot for the advice, bootneck. I'll look into Zorin. Honestly I haven't looked up more about Linux but I remember now that it's supposed to be script based commands, so if this one is streamlined like that then it sounds like it is for me. I would still like to know more about these stuff however and explore my options. And how do I burn the DVD? Honestly I am kind of disappointed at the amount of feedback I got on this. It's supposed to be the Linux main community/center thing even. ;/[/quote] When dealing with computers, nothing is ever solved in one sentence. If so, it was not thought all the way through.

It is impossible to explain what every 230 linux distros are useful for. We can suggest based on what we use. You have to be clear on what you want your linux system to do.

    RE: Changing the OS to make a new one?
    Another thing I want you to look at it Arch Linux: [url=http://www.linux.com/directory/Distributions/desktop/arch-linux]http://www.linux.com/directory/Distributions/desktop/arch-linux[/url] This system was deigned for linux users who want to learn how a linux system is built and works from the ground up. It shows you everything. Step by step, you are shown how linux is installed on a computer, what happens in the background during installation; booting from bios to mbr, to bootloader to boot partition; packages included with the system and what additional packages that can be added if using internet services; how to configure your system using the command line and text files; how to install packages once the system has been install either through a package manager or using source code. This will be a great place to learn forking. Combine the lessons learned from arch to debian and linuxmint, you will become a formidable master of your systems.
