Ubuntu LAMP Server With Torrentflux In VMware - Page 2
Step 4: Getting it to work
Here's how to fix that
This procedure needs an internet connection, so make sure you have a working one!
Left-click with your mouse in your machine.
And press <Esc> to enter the boot-menu, choose CD-ROM
You are now in a console environment where you can execute commands. Enter
sudo apt-get install linux-686
When asked to continue choose 'Y'
When this is done: Congratulations: you just installed a new kernel for linux!
At the prompt type:
As you probably found out by now: Ubuntu Server does not have a graphical interface. I think that's a good thing so i'll continue this how-to for using the command line.
For some commands you need super-user rights, the command 'sudo' gives you them. A command started with sudo always asks for a password: use your own.
Step 5 (Optional): Make system up-to-date
Logon with your username and password.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Step 6: Downloading Torrentflux 2.1
On your host, find out a working link for downloading Torrentflux at http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/torrentflux/torrentflux_2.1.tar.gz?download
Choose a location near you and choose download. Cancel the download and write down the link shown below in blue (haven't found a way to paste text into my vmware-window yet)
back in your machine type:
wget <full link to download>
If you need to use a proxy server begin with setting up your proxy server in you current environment:
or if you want this to be permanent: edit the /etc/wgetrc and fill the proxy settings there.
To edit the /etc/wgetrc file you need to know how to use vi, this is beyond the scope of this how-to.
