WPA/WPA2 disconnecting from specific connection

Hello. I'm currently having ubuntu 10.10, which works fine, except that on one specific connection at my school, it's disconnecting all the time. About 5-6 times each hour. It depends on how long it takes for it to reconnect, from 3 seconds to 2 minutes. I also have a connection at home, which works without problems. I've had a talk with the network administrator, but he doesn't have a solution, although he tried to figure it out. Some of my classmates are currently using fedora, and that's no problems at all. So it's only ubuntu, and only on this connection. The connection is called eduroam, which is a connection used at several university's around Norway.

I'm currently using:
- WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
- PEAP
- CA certificate GTE_CyberTrust_Global_Root
- Inner auth: MSCHAPv2

To be honest I don't have high expectations, but I figure I'd give it a shot :) Tips and tricks is highly appreciated!

Trouble installing Kubuntu 10.10

I'm trying to install Kubuntu 10.10 32bit on an old machine that was previously running Windows XP: 1Mbyte RAM, 80GByte Harddrive. I can't remember what processer / motherboard it has. Graphics card, network card integrated onto the motherboard. No network connected.

Installation seems to progress normally, the disk is ejected and the machine reboots. The Kubuntu 10.10 screen appears. Next a get a screen with a window which shows a picture of a harddrive. A short time later a crossed spanner and screw driver appear next to the harddrive. Then two more pictures want to appear next to the spanner / screwdriver, but before they can come into focus the screen goes blank and I'm back at the screen with the windows and the picture of harddrive this cycle repeats indefinitely.

I looked at your forums and found one that suggested that the harddrive was full and therefore the /tmp directory could not be mounted, but Kubuntu needs only 6Gb and I have a 80Gb drive it can't be full.

Ubuntu Server Installation Advice

I've been using Ubuntu desktop for a while and now want to explore the server side to set up a home network. I have downloaded Maverick. I would like to install LAMP and Tomcat on the same box. The box will be configured for RAID 5. Can I install both Apache and Tomcat on the same box but in their own partitions? Or should I set up virtualization for Maverick as host and install Tomcat as a guest OS? This is new territory for me but I have done a lot of reading about it. The end result is that I want to expand my development skills into web development using PHP and Java so I want a server box I can use as a test platform. Any suggestions/comments are appreciated.

Program associations

When I click on web links in emails (Evolution) they always want to open in Chrome instead of Firefox. Don't know why. How can I change this? From inside Evolution(?)

"corrupt low memory" Issue. New guy in desperate need of help!

Alright,here's the deal. I'm new to Ubuntu, and furthermore, I'm 15. I've been working with computers (Windows, mostly) nearly all my life. But this damned Ubuntu just won't cut me any slack!
li
I installed it with Wubi. Worked great. Updated 2 drivers (My Broadcom Wireless and the driver for my ATI Mobility Radeon Card). I did the system update thing which took all night to download (Around 270 files) and when I tried to log in this morning, Oh look, I go right to a black Dos-like command screen, asking me to log in.
(Ie.
Welcome to Ubuntu! etc,
Username:
Then,
password:(if I entered a username)
)
If I didn't type anything, the corrupt low memory line shows up. Then it asks me to log in.
I log in, and I come to a command prompt.
$eric or something like that.
I try "reboot", doesn't recognize the command. So I hard-boot the thing.
I come to the GRUB loader, and try the Recovery mode.
Used fix package, and It told me that it downloaded 0 files and fixed 0 packages.

How to Install Docky in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick)

What Is Docky?
Docky is an advanced shortcut bar that sits at the bottom, top, and/or sides of your screen. It provides easy access to some of the files, folders, and applications on your computer, displays which applications are currently running, holds windows in their minimized state, and more.

To install Docky from a terminal, use the commands below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docky

Docky will be added under Accessories in the Applications menu.

When you first launch Docky you will get a pretty simple dock on the bottom of your screen. You can drag and drop your application icons to rearrange them, and drag applications from the applications menu to Docky to add them. Pull an icon from Docky out and it will disappear in a puff of smoke.
