im new to this. and yes am coming from windows with very little knowledge of ubuntu stuff when fixing things for in store use via pizza hut back in the day for there touch screen order systems but all in all quick learner and know enough i must have messed something up lol check it out
upgrade app running warns to insure the screen lock thing doesnt occur so i go before i do i see screen saver options and i was screwing around and as soon as i clicked just black option while upgrade was in motion it literally went to a:
black screen then it came back as stated blacked out x'd icons following the initial upgrade first run screen, it says fully installed ,still the same. i opened root term. in os itself ,not the grub before o.s. full boot, " sorry in advance if my words are wrong lol " but i am sure linux command vets get what i am saying.
apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade
it required me to do -f install and stuff like that i did and it is still currently doing all the stuff i assume i am reupgrading manually asking about grub install devices now which i am confused as to how to check all its claiming it was installed to a disk no longer present " the dvd i live installed maybe?"
not too shabby for a non terminal user heh??? >:p
am i doing this right so far as a new user and also dumb question how do i check the dagum boxes -.-
this looks very radical to say the least and i am excited to use debian for the first time via sparky g.o.e. propts to the community and i hope
having a good head on my shoulders will allow me to be of help to others once my knowledge base of this stuff grows
thank you and yes this is urgent
:update: duh the freakin space bar. figured it out. still doing its thing id like to at liest get feed back on a job well done kinda done am i breaking it do i need to do a clean install? if all is good ill update again otherwise heres my initial hello and i hope every one in the group is welcoming lol thank you for your input advise and recommendations for a knewb i am looking around the forum and am reading intently to further my understanding of debian and term. commands lol
