So, I installed Ubuntu 2 days ago on my laptop. It didn't hit me until tonight, that it sucks. The only complaint I have, is that the permissions are so ****ed up, I can't do ANYTHING. I can't even log in as root. I look online for how to log in as root, and everyone says 'Use sudo !!!!11'. *****, I didn't ask that, I want to log in as the root. Anyway, I couldn't do that.
Now, this might not seem like much, but think about this.
-I can't get my wireless internet to work because I can't install the debian package because I don't have permission.
-My screen resolution is 800x600 because I can't install that package either.
-I can't install the PSP toolchain because I can't create folder.
-I can't edit and options to make the OS look like I want.
So you see, without this, Ubuntu is useless. Anyway, I want advice on which distro to use. My laptop specs are in my sig, and I'd like a distro to take advantage of them. I'd also like to develop for the PSP, and maybe use it for some media. Any help is much appreciated.
