  1. Re: Recovering grub bootloader after windows 8 install

    Windoze is well known for not respecting other operating systems. Therefore, when setting up a dual boot system, one needs to install Windoze first and then Linux. Completely reinstalling Ubuntu...

    [PPC] Re: add-apt-repository ppa:gnuzilla-team/ppa

    Thanks Lars. I had already tried the 1280x854 resolution in the xorg.conf file without success. Adding

    Oops, I thought it was the other way around. Therefore, that means your previously configured DNS servers were not resolving correctly.

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Long existing problem concerning Chrome and DNS

    I'm not using Chrome, so cannot tell you exactly what it does when you install it, but it could certainly be re-configuring your system to use a specific DNS server pair. Now, if everyone who...

    [ubuntu] Re: Looking for partition advice

    Exclusive of VM, my root partition has about 17G used, so 50G or so would be more than generous for the OS. Adequate swap space would be 2X the memory you have (or are planning) plus 10%.
