ALL KINDS OF TROUBLE. HELP!!!
Where do I begin. I'm trying to learn how to use and configure Ubuntu. In the process of installing "Automatix2" I screwed something up on the OS. Now when I try to run Synaptic Manager I get this error:E: Type "wget" is not known on line 74 in source list /etc/apt/sources.listE: The list of sources could not be readGo to the repository dialog to correct the problem.E:_cache->open()failed, please report.That's one error. My next problem lies during package installer. I get this error:"Software index is brokenThis is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic. Check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'."Of couse i tried Synaptic only to be met with my first problem. Anyhow, my next issue lies with the partitioning of my hard drive. I thought I created my own hard drive partition for ubuntu only to realize I installed it on the same partition as my Vista OS. I tried to uninstall Ubuntu in hopes to do a clean install but couldn't figure that out either. So here are my questions:How do I fix the errors I'm getting? How do I do an uninstall and clean install of ubuntu (for future reference)?Last, how do I fix my partition problem?Help is greatly appreciated. ThanksJulian
