    Repository error in ubuntu

    It may help to see the list of repositories you are using. This should show them: grep ^[^#] /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* or this: sudo grep -Erh ^deb /etc/apt/sources.list*

    PC stopped during Kali Linux Installation What can I do now?

    Obtain a bootable USB of a 'Live' Linux distro - NOT Kali ! Boot the machine from the Live USB. It should boot even if there is no operating system on the internal hard drive. Install Linux from there. If it does not boot you may have other issues such as catastrophic hardware failure or a...

    Do i need antivirus in Arcolinux?

    It really depends on how you use your computer which is running Linux. There are many, many 'security' practices which will mitigate the risk of malware infection which do not require an "antivirus/anti-malware" software application. I am not favorably disposed towards those who proclaim "I've...

    How would I undo or reverse an echo command?

    I don't think you would have to "undo" an echo command. "Echo" just shows in your Terminal whatever it is that you "echoed". It does not do anything to your sound. Just hit 'enter' and keep going - no harm, no foul.

    Acer C720 chrome book driver support

What you most likely will find is a Linux distro intended for a category of machine - such as 32bit, 64bit, PowerPC, etc., etc. IMHO the easiest way to determine what will and will...

    Replace Vista on Old Computer with Linux Ubuntu

    1.) You should start your own thread with this question. 2.) It sounds like you may be trying to install onto the DVD in the optical drive. When you run the installer make sure you are selecting the hard disk drive. 3.) From the 'Live' Ubuntu disk run 'G-Parted' and verify your partition layout.
