    Re: Mini PC suggestions for Ubuntu

    The advantage of the Zotac Zbox machines is more ports. I bought a Zbox ID81 with a Celeron 857 (Sandybridge), and added 4GB ofRAM and a 2.5" HD. I use it as a general desktop and media player, and...

    [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu Trusty Cold Boot Failure

    Just clutching at straws, but maybe you could give the computer more time to warm up by specifying a longer grub timeout in /etc/default/grub (followed by re-running update-grub)?

    He says we will do no gaming or video editing. That means that about any computer will do. A fancy graphics adapter would just be a waste of money.

    Re: Ubuntu 13.10 and Citrix receiver

    Is this 13.10? It did not work for me. After all other problems were solved, it choked on a missing libasound. 13.04 only has libasound2.

    This rather sounds like it does not find the harddisk at all. Did you check your cables?

    What output did you get here? The same?

    I do know that it is a limitation of some motherboards that they do not make the full 4GB available to the system.
