Installation issues / Re: Ubuntu 8.10 end of life breaks installer
« on: December 03, 2010, 12:55:31 pm »
Hi All
Im a noob to linux but keen on getting this running. Its getting frustrating though. I would have thought most of the incorrect references in the source list would have been changed in what appears to be a weekly snapshot. With the amount of hits this topic has, the problem has obviously been around for a while.

Now the frustrating bit. I have tried to edit the sources list. Have got as far as making and editing a copy with all references to "archive" and "security" changed to "old-releases". Now I did say I was a noob. I can't get editing rights to replace the existing file or cut and paste into it and save. All I want to do is edit it with editors that come with the Kubuntu install. Have looked at numerous sites with no success.
Please help the noobie !!!
