sorush20Dr_willis: google is offering something like this http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/browsersync/index.html, I think it would be a great idea for ubuntu to do something similar where by if you have to reinstall your root partition and download update etc you would be able to sync back to the origianl ubuntu that you left. I do not mean backing up all your root partition but just your fav programs that you would like to 04:04

tarmathsorry newbie question here lads... Ive always wondered how I could see why a package is being installed when I request another package... like what is the dependency tree... is there any application that can tell me that?04:40
adamo wait easy to fix. log says operation requires superuser privilege. I just use sudo right?04:40
ferossichabod: not sure exactly but I would run the game in 'safe' mode and change the video setting to the lowest at first and then try it. Then notch it up little by little until you get best resolution without fudging things up.04:40
ichabodokay... how do I run in safe mode? I'm a complete noob.04:40
kitchetarmath: you could go to the software website that your install it says the dependencies on there04:40
ArrenLexadam: I strongly suggest you run the command from scratch as "sudo checkinstall" rather than just installing the generated package with sudo.04:40
ferossichabod: I'm not familiar with the game but you can probably find it on the game website or google.. G Knows ALL.04:41
