    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop screen brightness "flickering"

    I know that MSI Wind netbooks have a similar issue. My wife's would do this constantly until I upgraded the BIOS.

    Perhaps a similar bios upgrade would fix your issue too?

    [ubuntu] Re: Running HOT!

    Ya... I really wouldn't worry about those temperatures. They seem pretty inline for a quad-core.

    My dual core can get to around 65C under full load -- and I've got a decent heatsink and ore fans...

    [SOLVED] MSI Wind U120 Wireless, Fixed!

    I know that this is a common problem -- the Realtek RTL8187SE card in the MSI Wind is next to impossible to get working correctly. I had issues with all of the following:

  4. Re: Monitor brightness oscillates after upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 on Netbook MSI U100

    I just installed Netbook Remix on my wife's U120 this evening and had the same problem. However, upgrading the BIOS to the latest version cured it for me. Perhaps that would work for you too?

  6. Re: Virtual box after gutsy -- Problems with module

    Correct. Therefore, the new kernel modules were necessary.

    I'm guessing you should uninstall both ose packages and just re-install the generic one. The server one is for the server kernel, not...
  7. Re: Virtual box after gutsy -- Problems with module

    One thought is that you installed both the server and the workstation version of the file.

    While I really don't see why this would be a problem I'm just not sure what exactly is different between...

    I think that there is a bit of confusion here with regards to binary executables, or simply running a script file.

    As mentioned, any file can be made executable. This is a bit confusing though. ...

    Please take this with some caution. A strict ANSII C compiler will not let any executable line of code come before a declaration. Therefore, all declarations MUST come at the beginning.
