    RE: Error messages after Update
    This is usually due to the repository for an installed package to be unavailable, for whatever reason (network problems, servers down, company out of business). Try again in a few days is my usual advice. If the problem persists, find out the web address of the software provider and see what they say.

    RE: Ubuntu with photoshop cs6
    I doubt very much if CS6 (the latest and "greatest") works with Wine in Linux. CS5 has plenty of problems, and Adobe doesn't seem too interested in making it compatible with Linux systems. My advice? Run Windows in a Linux virtual machine, and then run CS6 there.

    RE: how to
    Unfortunately, java installations can be pretty counter-intuitive. If you do this, "ls -l /usr/bin/java" you will find that it points to somewhere else, such as /etc/alternatives, or /usr/java/... - where depends upon the operating system and version. When you install a new Java version, it doesn't necessarily get linked to the defaults in /usr/bin. This is because you can have multiple java versions installed at any time. I know about all of this because I am a senior engineer in a major software organization that uses java extensively, and a number of versions...

    RE: Bios flash update
    Reasons why I (and my company) don't buy HP gear... :-( So, what has Google shown you? Anyway, post the full make + model + options (motherboard + CPU) and anything else you can think of, and we will see what we can find. In any case, I agree that a bios upgrade should be free.

    RE: IBM G41 laptop running windows 2000
    Burn and run some live distributions and see what you like best. If you can boot off of the USB drive, you can use Unetbootin to install a number of Linux live cd/dvd iso images on a thumb drive and boot/install from that if you don't want to, or can't, burn a bunch of CDs and/or DVDs. Here is a link to Unetbootin: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
