    [SOLVED] Re: [SOLVED]Bash vulnerability

    I also read that the patch doesn't fix everything, there's a new bulletin for the "partial patch." CVE-2014-7169

    [ubuntu] ATI driver problems

    I suspect I may just be SOL with this, but figured I'd ask as it's very possible I'm just missing something blatantly obvious.

    I've used the proprietary Catalyst drivers in the past (around the...

    Re: My experiences with KDE vs. GNOME

    Plenty of "KDE vs Gnome" threads all over the place, hoping this doesn't turn into one of those ;D

    That said, they're both good. Gnome was designed for simplicity, KDE can be anything but if you...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: leaving ubuntu/Linux

    Yea, give 9.04 a spin, should be able to test that functionality just off of a LiveCD. Alpha 6 is out, Beta is due in about two days. See if that cures what ails you. Definitely worth checking...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: leaving ubuntu/Linux

    Which build are you using? I only have two portables myself that I use very infrequently, so don't have a ton of wireless networking experience. The one laptop I do use occasionally dual boots...

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    I'd believe that. I've used Windows since forever. My general security is a basic two-way firewall, an on-demand only spyware scanner (plus occasionally the VirusTotal web site), and Sandboxie as a...

    Quite true really, I see people say they love being immune a lot. The occasional bug can be a security issue; SSH, FTPd, Apache and the like all had their share of critical bugs. Exposing your box...

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    One of my turnoffs with Windows actually.. just nothing to hold my interest aside from work.. no challenge.

    But with Linux, I know just enough to be semi-competent/dangerous.. things still...

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    Maybe I was lucky, dunno, but I've never had an issue with the installer's partition editor, and I've done it with multiple operating systems and storage formats in the mix. My current setup is XP,...

    Heh yes, I feel your pain with RPM's. The only RPM based distro I ever had any fondness for was PCLinuxOS, just never had problems with that one. (Might have something to do with Apt and Synaptic...

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    I can agree with that; openSUSE's KDE4 implementation was done very well. Not sure who I like better, theirs or Chakra (Arch KDEMod). Ubuntu's version, not so much. I'm not a KDE fan anyway, but...

    It's definitely not for everyone, as it was designed with a different audience in mind than Ubuntu. (Build it yourself vs click click done) But I found it an excellent balance of a rolling release,...

    That's certainly a very viable option, and I know some people who feel the same way; they either stick solely with the LTS builds, or stay one version behind under the rationale that by the time the...

    Just out of curiosity, did you install the "guest additions" (IE drivers) for your particular VM? It'll probably think it's a standard SVGA adapter otherwise. You should be able to resize the...

    [SOLVED] Re: Kick a dead horse Pulseaudio thread

    I can understand the resentment against Pulse. When it was first pushed I had all sorts of problems with it. Granted, it does add a lot of neat features, but was nowhere near as stable as ALSA.

    I just meant that there will be no drivers loaded when it tries to boot any operating system. Whatever it boots from has to be visible to your BIOS. External USB, SCSI and the like more often than...

    Give Wubi a shot then. Instead of sitting on its own partition, Ubuntu sits on a "virtual hard drive", a file on your Windows installation. Don't like it? Easy as hitting up Add/Remove programs in...

    Re: I'm going back to Windows XP

    Must have been my hardware; I've had lots of BSOD's with 2000. Rarely with XP once it got out of its growing pains, and that bad driver aside, never since.
