    [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu 3d support issues

    With regard to the 3d issue, first do not install that video driver from SIS. It's 10 years old and probably only works with obsolete kernels.

    [ubuntu] Re: motd wont change Server 10.01

    I renamed /etc/motd.tail then ran:

    sudo /usr/lib/update-notifier/update-motd-updates-available --force
    And the motd appears fixed--for now. I'll post back in a few days if it acts up again.

    [ubuntu] Re: motd wont change Server 10.01

    Same problem has appeared on two of my Xubuntu 10.04 boxes (one i686, the other x86_64) within the last week. I regularly logon via ssh and use the motd to tell when to run update-manager.

    Just an answer to an old post in case anyone needs it. If your drive names come up inconsistently, try the /dev/disk/by-id identifier. List long to find the symlink for your disk and use it in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Suspend and hibernate problem

    What happens if you move the mouse?

    If that doesn't work try ctrl+alt+f4 then ctrl+alt+f7. I'm not sure why this works, or how to bring back normal functioning.

    [SOLVED] Re: No sound after wake from suspend, any help?

    Some sound cards, such as the cs46xx in my Thinkpad a20m, require a suspend script. I used this in /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/02Alsa in Hardy (don't forget to chmod 755 the script):

    Re: HOWTO: CPU Frequency Scaling w/ Kernel Module

    Re: HOWTO: CPU Frequency Scaling w/ Kernel Module

    I believe that Atom 330 has hyperthreading, so a dual core should appear to the operating system as four cores.
