    well, this first drive is dying, so it would be nice to know it's not using the existing swap from the start.

    Most install guides gloss over the partition part or go under the assumption it's a...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Fresh install: how do I choose which drive grub goes on?

    Also, I read that if there is an existing swap part it will use it by default. There is an existing swap on sda which I don't want it to use, as this drive will be removed after some backups.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Installed Flash 10 now it says I have Flash 9 and 10 installed

    That's probably your problem. You shouldn't really have any plugins in YOUR home mozilla folder. The plugin is installed system wide.

  9. Just upgraded to hardy, now opengl playback won't work in myth

  10. [ubuntu] Re: logitech webcam owners. Any of these any good and do they work in linux?

    Yeah I'm sure they look like crap. Was curious mainly about the frame rate issues. It's weird how all the cams claim up to 30 fps. Dependant on what? cpu? I always read that usb1 cams just...

    Re: Totem is now a front-end for mythtv?

    I was under the impression that this is in for 2.20 so I was going to compile hardy's totem 2.21.90 for gutsy just to check this out. So it's not currently in hardy but it is in current development...
