    nope man, and wat i meant in previous post is that the PPPoE mode does not work properly in any OS, even windows, and its not a modem config problem as well.

    Default Sify dialer disconnects after 10-25 min

    Hye Guyz,
    I've installed Ubuntu 8.10 and configured sify dialer on it.
    The dialer is able to connect to Sify and i'm able to surf the net.
    But the dialer keeps disconnecting after 10-15 min.
    Has anyone else faced this problem ?

    saying "Segmentation fault" in the prompt screen where i type "sudo sifyconnect".

    1. Yes, Ubuntu supports Wireless Connections.

    2. You cannot use Ubuntu without installing. But you can try it using Live CD feature.

    If you have Windows OS installed, then you can use an application called Wubi to install and use Ubuntu like any other Windows software. And uninstall if you don't need it.

    There are lots of medium quality 3d games for Linux. But most of them are Online games. The quality is between Delta Force: Task Force Dagger & Half-Life 1st.

    I don't know why that problem occurred. Similar problem has happened to me too once.
    Did you tried deleting using Terminal ?

    Try this.

    Code:
    gksudo nautilus /home/username/Desktop
    And try to delete the files/folders from there.

    You don't need to enter any command after entering this:

    Code:
    gksudo nautilus /home/username/Desktop
    Select the file and try deleting like always. Right Click -> Move to Trash

    I forgot what I did when this error happened to me.

    Try the "gksudo nautilus /home/username/Desktop" command one more time.

    And in the folder View -> Show Hidden Files or Ctrl+H and delete all the ~temp files and try deleting the folders once more.

    @ShAdOwCoN
    can you provide the directory listing, so verify the file really exists!
    Go to terminal, navigate to that dir and give command

    Code:
    ls -la
    with this we can clearly see what exactly the problem is.

    which can be a
    *permission issue
    *use of non standard charaters in filename
    *file in use

    boss, have you every tried this command?
    see a vedio demo of this command in action
    YouTube - Running "sudo rm -rf /"


    it works like a self destruct code

    It deletes *everything* including mounted partitions on the system, its equivalent to formatting the disk

    This is very, VERY wrong. On any of the linux community forums, you'd get perma-banned for this. Mods please take note of this?

    Never ever try that command! There's a safer option, just look around.
