I'm continuing to have troubles installing stuff even with the pybombs route suggested. I had given my Ubuntu vbox 2.5GB RAM (my laptop can only address 6 of my 8GB for some reason), and 16GB of virtual HDD space, and it filled up all that HDD space and, as mentioned, probably won't work well in only 2.5GB. Not to mention as I said earlier it was running really slowly anyway (perhaps due to that "low" allocation of RAM).

Too bad.. if I later get another machine I can format in native Ubuntu, I'll give that a shot.
