    RE: Early access to wifi or bluetooth
    I am not sure I understand you. What kind of mechanism did you have in mind. This sound like it fall under the category of an active directory. The active directory handles all network and computer accesses. Have a look into LAMP servers and Linux active directory. You will find hints there.

    RE: Wireless on HP dv8 is not working on Ubuntu 14Lts
    We need to know what model your wireless driver is and the Ethernet driver. Linux does support most wireless adaptors and just about all Ethernet drivers. It is not uncommon to hear some don't work. In that case, you mat have to install the driver issued by the manufacture if one is available for linux. If you can, open a terminal, and type #sudo lshw and locate the Ethernet and wireless adaptors. Or better yet, print the entire output on this thread. We will scan to find those devices and determine if they are supported. For the Ethernet controller, make sure the cable is securely connected. Check to see if lights come on. Make sure the cable is properly connected to your router. You can run these commands. #ifconfig This will tell you if your Ethernet adaptor has been detected. If so, your Ethernet adaptor has been detected just not connected. #sudo ifdown eth0 This will remove any settings the adaptor has. #sudo ifup etho This will re-establish the connection. Lot to do but trouble shooting is an art

    RE: Linux or Windows 7?
    I use to think gaming hardcore was done on a PC. Windows took lead there. However, think of hardware standardization and not have to upgrade something, and play any game you like,a game console wins big here. Try not to give value to your PC based on how many games it can play.

    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.
