Linux - DSL Problem Ubuntu 9.10

I have a very simple solution for Ubuntu 9.10's DSL problem. In many forums you are told to change the "pppoeconf" settings. That is one part of the solution. I had the problem, that I installed Ubuntu 9.10 via Wubi and in this case the pppoeconf settings won't work.

You have to install Ubuntu 9.10 in the good old way on a separate partition. 

Change the pppoeconf settings:

1) Change to root user
sudo -s 

2) change pppoeconf settings:

3) Answer every question with "yes"

4) Finished!

For my it is the best solution for people who have not a router.

Linux - PlayOnLinux

PlayOnLinux is an add-ons for "Wine", with whom you can install Windows Games in Linux. You can also install other windows applications for example Microsoft's Office 2009.

Admittedly that isn't a currency of illegal programs, because you need an orginal CD/DVD to install these programms.

If you want to play CS you can also install Steam for Linux.

If you have Ubuntu 9.10 the installation of "PlayOnLinux" is very simple. You only have search in the software centre for "PlayOnLinux"

Linux - Tutorial how to undo pppoeconf settings

To undo the pppoeconf settings isn't very easy. If you use the pppoeconf settings you can connect to the Internet without connecting via network manager. So if there is a case that you want to undo this settings, without reinstalling the whole operating system, I have a little tutorial.

1) open console

2) get root:
sudo -s

3) edit nm-system-settings.conf
cd /etc/NetworkManager
ls -la
gedit ./nm-system-settings.conf

You have to write managed=true under [ifupdown]

4) edit interfaces
cd /etc/network
ls -la
gedit interfaces
This file must look like this:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 dhcp

5) Restart your computer

6) Finished.

PS: If there are some questions, make a comment.

Ubuntu 9.10 - Internet Problem

As I have seen on google that people have the same problem than me, that they can't connect to the Internet with Ubuntu 9.10, I will present here a temporary solution:

You need a computer where a windows operating system is installed. Then you connect this computer with the Internet and now you enable that other computers in your network are allowed to use this Internet connection. Now, you should be able to connect via your "auth eth0" connection to the Internet.

Ubuntu 9.10 - Wubi

Also like Ubuntu 9.04 you can install Ubuntu 9.10 in Wubi. There are two ways:
The one way is to make a backup of all important files and make a new install of Ubuntu. Then you can use the new Gnome version and you hard disk will be formated in ext4.
The other way is to update Ubuntu 9.04 via the update manager, but then you can't use the new gnome and your hard disk will stay formated in ext3.
