yes it is on in the bios it comes on during the grub menu then it goes off again as it has fiesty, but in all of them the numlockx app took care of it. any ideas

i gave up i made my pc boot with the keypad working.... I am using it in no password needed log in mode.
i live alone anyway. I hate it when stuff doesn't work out of the box. and numlockx did for jaunty....but that was the end of what worked with jaunty it seems the last good distro i had was hardy and before that feisty. So far Linuxmint 8 based on karmic seems better than ubuntu karmic. i can go online i can print, my firefox doesn't seem to freeze every two minutes. that is already an improvement in both jaunty and ubuntu karmic....i am still holding my breath though.

You are welcome.

No I haven't. I doubt I would find such books here in my country, but I will look if I can find on Amazon. Thanks.

Unfortunately, I have to wait a little bit. The shows start with 2 months delay here.

There are plenty of sources on the web, but not "official" ones. Hulu doesn't work outside US. The only show I can get officially here online is Lost, which is streamed by my ISP video site, but it doesn't work on Linux ](*,)


what country?

Brazil


the public library the system in NYC is phenomenal

I can imagine. Can I get it online from another country?

Nope. I'm also looking for a solution.
