    [SOLVED] Re: Halfway crashes Xubuntu 12.04

    Right, well, if I had the ability to swap out the GPU, I would likely upgrade to something much more powerful. However, the computer is a laptop, so I work with what I have.

    [SOLVED] Halfway crashes Xubuntu 12.04

    So I bought Halfway today, but during the second mission, the game crashes and my system locks up (cannot alt+ctrl+F1 out). The same crash happens if I run the game in WINE at the same spot.

    Rooters (if that's a word) have been using the Droid to tether for months now. I believe wifi hotspots work as well. That's what's odd about the decision to remove it from the original Android...

    Re: who here has a Droid phone?

    It's not actually fear that's kept me from rooting. I've just weighed the benefits vs drawbacks and decided that while rooting unlocks plenty of potential, for me, it's not worth the hassle.
