    [13.10] Kernel panic on Live CD boot

    Brand new laptop, no peripherals plugged in, and a kernel panic before the DE loads from the live CD. Looks like it's to do with nouveau, but can anyone suggest what needs doing? This occurs with...

    Anybody able to shed any light on this?

    What I'm trying to do is have Banshee (which you can assume is already running) start playing at 8:45.

    Here's my crontab line:

    [ubuntu] nVidia vs. X vs. Me

    I'm coming ever so close to the end of my tether with this, so apologies for any curt tone or attitude!

    [ubuntu] Re: Setting up a Web Directory

    I sense some running-before-walking going on here.

    The example you linked will be an advanced, database-driven site, most likely running on a framework like Zend or Rails. Bear in mind that, if...

    [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Missing after "switch Desktop Mode"

    Nope, it's not entirely fixed.

    I've got my "netbook mode" desktop back, minus gnome-panel which has to be run manually.

    [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Missing after "switch Desktop Mode"

    Just thought I'd add my voice to this.

    I suffered the same problem on my Dell Mini 9; switching to "normal" mode (more out of curiosity than a dislike for a the netbook launcher) gave me a...

    Ruby + Builder

    I'm trying to use Ruby's Builder gem to produce some XML, but - having installed the gem apparently fine (builder.rb is there, no errors other than a documentation issue, which is apparently common)...

    Re: Intrepid on a Acer Aspire One

    This is so very, very disappointing.

    My AAO (with 8.10) works fine, with the exception of the WLAN. Unfortunately, the idea of an ultra-portable computer without wireless networking is pretty...

    I don't want to be rude, but that's twice you've given me suggestions that - in my original post - I stated I'd already gone through. Could you read what I've said fully before responding to it?...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire One: WLAN Troubles (again)

    ;)

    I'll double check the Hardware Drivers app, ullix, but I'm pretty sure it's already set as you suggest. Would be nice if it showed the driver name as opposed to a pair of essentially identical...

    [ubuntu] Acer Aspire One: WLAN Troubles (again)

    After installing 8.10 on my AAO, I've had (almost) no end of wireless troubles. These have generally consisted of either the adapter not being recognised by the OS at all (other than in lspci), or...

    [ubuntu] Re: Where is Hardy 8.04?

    I remember when Linux was the domain of the intelligent, friendly and laid back people.

    This thread is incredibly depressing in that regard.
