I just haven't been able to try much of anything. Our air conditioner has been out for about a week, and during the hottest part of the year. I've been so tired all the time. I can't think straight with this excessive heat. It gets to around 32℃ indoors during the day without...
I need some step by step advice to get grub set up the correct way.

I told apt to answer yes to every question.
There are over fifty seven thousand packages that demand to be installed in order to...
I downloaded the standard live system that includes nonfree stuff. It logged me in as "user" with a uid of 1000 so I can't do anything because I'm not root. What is the default root password for this installation disc? I tried to use su, but it didn't work. This one barely fit on my tablet...
