    Max RAM on PanP5

    Several years ago in 2010 I asked this question, then it got resurrected again in 2012. The thread is here. Today I ran across a PDF I saved from the System76 site on March 2009 which I assume is...

    [xubuntu] Re: Installed Xubuntuy 12.04

    Hardware can go out with any vendor, so honestly don't take this as a hit against S76. I hope to buy the latest and greatest PanP later this year since my laptop is going on 4 years old. It still...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Maximum Memory for Pangolin Performance 4 (PANP4)

    Yup, I've been told by a few folks at S76 that the PanP4 and PanP5, which is what I have, max out at 4 gigs of Ram. Sad since I really need more ram, but oh well.

    [xubuntu] Re: Installed Xubuntuy 12.04

    Which PanP do you have? My PanP5 is running Xubuntu 12.04 and the SD card works without a hitch. One thing I'd suggest is booting from one of the Ubuntu or even the Xubuntu live CD's and seeing if...

    Re: How Old Were You When You Started Using Linux?

    Just age is kinda misleading since a 13 year old could say he'd used Linux since he was 11 and sound like a boss :)

    For me I started using Linux around 1996 or 1997, can't remember exactly, and...

  13. [other] Re: Performance Pangolin Review, issues you should know

    Yup, my PanP5 (which I LOVE!) is like this, I have to hold down the Power button a second or two for it to kick in. And I agree with your assumptions on why this is so. With a 2yo often hovering...

    Re: What's you favorite drink?

    AM - Coffee
    Mid-day - Diet Dr Pepper or Water
    PM- Hot Tea

    I don't really drink alcohol except for the occasional glass of wine, but that's maybe a few times a year.
