    Re: The Cheese Super Thread

    My brothers and I have always referred to that stuff as "petroleum byproducts". We knew what real cheese should look and taste like, so we never really considered American "cheese" food, much less...

    [SOLVED] Re: No sound in Karmic, HP Pavilion DV6

    You apparently have a different version of the DV6 from mine, as my chipset is ATI, not NVidia. See if you can find your exact model number and check the snd_hda_intel options list. You may need to...

    [SOLVED] Re: No sound in Karmic, HP Pavilion DV6

    Sorry, but that problem sounds identical to mine, and I never activated any modem hardware drivers. The only hardware driver I've got running is for my ATI graphics chipset.

  11. Re: Ubuntu Software Store: What it does, and how you can help

    Very exciting. I'd been seeing people throwing around that commercial software needs to become available for Linux, as some types of software are difficult to make FOSS.

    You are assuming a purpose to pseudonyms that is not always the case. Your further conclusions based on that premise are therefore flawed.

    [kde] Re: Uninstall KDE packages

    That might not be possible. You can try removing the "kubuntu-desktop" package, which should get rid of it all, but if any of the games you want depend on KDE, they will be removed as well.
