    Re: fglrx in raring

    Is there a good solution for installing fglrx 13.1 legacy drivers in Raring, yet? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Edgers PPA doesn't have the legacy package.

    Re: ATI Mobility Radeon HD4250 graphics

    Just whatever you do, don't upgrade to Raring. As of now, there are no shortage of headaches related to getting ATI legacy fglrx drivers working in Raring, and AMD made it clear they don't...

    You can also install Gparted Live to your USB drive or burn it to a CD, and use that at startup to partition and format.

  11. [ubuntu] Re: VLC repository problem (remove ppa:c-korn/vlc)

    I'm currently getting a 404 for the Nvidia vdpau cutting edge repository in Natty.

    Is there a Natty repository with frequent VLC updates similar to c-korn or Nvidia cutting edge?

    [SOLVED] Re: Not booting after new install

    It looks like GRUB may not be installed on the hard drive. In that case, you may need to use the rescatux disk (on the same site as super grub) to specify linux boot and rewrite GRUB to the MBR.
