Dell Optiplex GX260 Desktop Install issues with Ubuntu 8.10
Is it required for a PC to be connected to the Internet when an Ubuntu installation is being conducted?
Has anyone completed an installation, have the machine reboot, allow for login/password authentication and then see only the desktop and be unable to use the application? What is this state called? What rectifies this condition?
On my PC(listed above) I cannot connect to the Internet with the wireless cards I own and now it seems like my NIC need drivers, so I have no connection. That is why I want to know if internet connectivity is required.
I cannot tell how many times I have reinstalled the OS to have the same results...listed as second issue.
Thanks to anyone who can answer these questions.
