  1. Greetings, you know I see all the tutorials about ubuntu and very helpful but one tutorial that seem to miss all the time is of sharing resources like 3G internet sharing cause its more important where I stay as it is a developing country, may someone point me to the right direction.

  2. This appears to be for stock Unity systems.

    Many people use hybrid setups, i.e. not running stock Unity. It would be nice to have a way to know:
    a) 32-bit or 64-bit
    b) Desktop or Server edition
    c) which DE is used

    I know how to determine 32/64-bit – `uname -m`, but don’t know how to determine the others. Does a non-GUI desktop install looks the same as a server?

  3. To show the version installed You can check the file /etc/lsb-release using:

    cat /etc/lsb-release

    Format is like this:

    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=11.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=natty
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=”Ubuntu 11.04″
