What am I doing wrong here?
I just installed 64 Studio on a 2-3 year old Lenovo ThinkPad (rough guesstimation on the age of the computer), but things aren't working too well. DISCLAIMER: I am a complete beginner. For one, spell-check isn't working right. As of this writing, the majority of the words on this are being marked as misspelled, and it's kind of annoying. Secondly, networking is going haywire. The computer can't go on the Internet without an Ethernet cable. Someone told me this is a hardware issue, but I'm not convinced. The thing's *designed* to be able to run without cables, and I really doubt WLAN has changed drastically in the last 5 years, even. My 2+ year old iPod Touch plays well with Wi-fi...I tried typing [network-admin] in Terminal, and I got this: ** (network-admin:4857): CRITICAL **: Cannot create session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. (network-admin:4857): Gtk-WARNING **: Unknown property: GtkComboBox.items [WARN 4857] kit-hash.c:206:kit_hash_insert(): key != NULL Not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace Third, downloading doesn't work. I tried downloading an application (MilkyTracker), and, even though I clicked a DL link for a binary version designed for Ubuntu, the computer couldn't open it (it showed up as a tar file). Odd... And lastly, there are 116 updates, according to the computer. However, it seems there isn't enough documentation for the update manager to figure out what OS I am using. I notice that in startup, two things are marked with a [Fail] tag, one involving kernels (I couldn't catch the other one). So, what is going wrong, and what should I do? Thanks.
