  4. [other] Re: Why I Left System76 (Thomas Aaron, signing off)

    Bravo and good luck Thomas! You doubtless do not remember me, but I purchased a PanP4 from System76 and you offered invaluable assistance several times.

    [other] Re: Zareason vs System76

    In which case there is no point to asking which vendor is "best," and certainly not on a site dedicated to support from one of the vendors.

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Two major gripes with s76 laptops: battery life & power management

    Great! In my experience better battery life is going to make these machines very attractive indeed. My PanP4 obviously has a few miles on it, but people who try it are impressed. The only two...

    [kubuntu] Re: how to fix broadcom wifi adapter to work!

    I found a "HowTo" over on the Linux Mint forum that might speak to this situation. It does address the Broadcom card at issue here, I believe.

    Mint is a pretty close spin from Ubuntu. I think...

    [ubuntu] Re: remove it completely

    Quite right. First step, I think, is to roll back to an older kernel and see if that error message goes away.

    If the problem is wide-spread I have to think devs are going to be on it.

    [all variants] Re: system76 laptop sturdyness

    My PanP4, now about 3 (?) years old shows one hair-line crack in the corner of its case on the lid. The only other sign of wear is that I have a few keys where the lettering is worn off. That is...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Two physical drives two operating systems?

    Not a bad way to do it, Ben Page, but it does not work easily on a laptop! (Which will have only one HD unless a second one is running through a USB port.)

    [ubuntu] Re: Complete Beginner's Wifi Issue

    System 76 maintains a section on this forum. Might I suggest you move your post to that section? You will get a much faster response from people who know your Starling and how to deal with it.
