  1. [ubuntu] Re: Stuck at grub rescue after upgrade 13.10 -> 14.04beta

    I have had the same problem. My guess is that, since I have two hard drives, the system is trying to start from the wrong drive where an old version of GRUB is installed. My solution was to start...

    It seems a lot of people are experiencing the same exact problem. Have you tried to keep the computer on without the wireless driver on to see if this...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell Vostro V131

    I can now confirm that the total system freeze I am experiencing since I updated to Ubuntu 12.04 has nothing to do with HDMI. The only thing I do different is I use KDE rather than Unity. Anybody is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell Vostro V131

    @frandu I just upgraded to 12.04 from a fresh 11.10 install. I never dared using anything from Dell. Do they provide certified versions? I probably should mention that I use my laptop on HDMI 99% of...

    Since I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04, I am experiencing random freezes. I leave the laptop alone for a long time and when I come back, it is on but nothing works, the screen is black, and I don't think I...

    I still have this very* annoying problem with the HDMI output on this laptop. Mainly when I leave the laptop alone for a while the screen goes out and it doesn't come back to life. Sometimes changing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell Vostro V131

    I have installed Kubuntu Oneric 11.10 on the Vostro V131. More or less everything works all right, but there are huge problems with the HDMI detection. If I turn on the laptop, plug the HDMI cable,...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: After Natty Narwhal Update, it goes straight to Grub command line.

    I had the same problem. I think what is happening is that grub 1.99 is not installed in the mbr. Not sure why. Does it say grub 1.98 on your grub console? I fixed the problem with the following...
  10. [other] Re: Booting from USB on the Meerkat Ion NetTop and flash the BIOS

    Thomas, you were right. For some reasons after the BIOS upgrade the automatic iGPU FrameBuffer detection was disabled and only 64MB were dedicated to that. I wonder what the negative consequences of...
  11. [other] Re: Booting from USB on the Meerkat Ion NetTop and flash the BIOS

    So I remembered correctly, before the update it was 3328MB, and after the update it is now 3459MB. Not that much more but still appreciated. Maybe it is just a different BIOS configuration rather...

  13. [other] Re: Booting from USB on the Meerkat Ion NetTop and flash the BIOS

    I do use a 64 bit kernel. Still, the BIOS has some limitations. I see exactly 3459MB of memory now. I think the right amount should be 4096-256=3840MB, since 256MB are shared with the graphic unit. I...

  15. [other] Booting from USB on the Meerkat Ion NetTop and flash the BIOS

    I have finally found out how to start up the system from the BIOS in the Meerkat Ion NetTop. When you plug a USB stick, most BIOS will just recognize it as an additional booting device and let you...

    Well, when I was at work with the Meerkat I could not hear it either. My desktop at work compared is a turbo jet, but it probably consumes constantly more than 150W. In the privacy of my room at home...

    The fan ran either case all the time. The coretemp module is just to check the temperature sensors.



    Well, of course the noise problem might be subjective. But it is objective that the fan is...

    Actually yes, you can. That is what I have done. I used unetbootin to install Ubuntu Karmic on a USB stick and then I copied the two deb files on the same USB stick. Why would that be not allowed?
