    Re: Kickstarting an openbox project

    I've got the base system installing on the test machine right now. 6GB is a bit tight, but it'll do for the moment.

    Just a quick note - I've started up ##openbox-desktop on freenode to kind of keep the discussion from taking over the LoCo channel.

    Hmm.. at first glance, it appears that the first step is to put together the exact system we want. Once I have a machine dedicated to this, I can do a clean install from a minimal CD and add exactly...

    [ubuntu] Re: Which laptop to buy for Linux?

    I have had great luck with Dell laptops. I've had a C610, a C840, and an Inspiron 1545, all of which ran beautifully. You *might* end up replacing the wireless card in the older models, but that...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wireless Not Recognised

    The 4312 should work fine. You'll need to plug in via ethernet and run updates first, and then you should be able to enable the STA driver. there's more information in this thread.

  14. [SOLVED] Re: 10.10 release candidate with Broadcom BCM4312.

    Revision 01. You should have no issue beyond having to plug in the first time to update drivers. If it doesn't find it, this page should help.

  16. [SOLVED] Re: 10.10 release candidate with Broadcom BCM4312.

    All good! Glad to hear you're not offended by closed-source drivers. Fortunately, the lack of wireless is rarely an issue. Most people can plug into ethernet long enough to run updates. (Except for...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a way to get a "spoofed" MAC address to PERSIST over reboots?

    If your NIC is built into the motherboard, there may be a BIOS setting that you can set the MAC with. Then you don't have to worry about OS-specific patching.

  19. [SOLVED] Re: 10.10 release candidate with Broadcom BCM4312.

    Umm... I'm running STA drivers on my 'old' bcm 4312 chip. It supports the 4311, 4312, 4313, 4321, and 4322 chips. see their download page.

  20. [SOLVED] Re: 10.10 release candidate with Broadcom BCM4312.

    your BCM4312 should work fine. You DO have to connect wired to run updates the first time, and then enable the STA drivers, but mine works beautifully. broadcom USED to be a sad state, but they've...
