  1. [other] Re: Is it possible to run a Linux distro in Bootcamp?

    I originally just used gparted to resize my HFS+ partition and create a FAT32 partition in the freed space, booted back to rEFIt and synced the MBR/GPT and tried to boot from the TinyXP CD, but that...

    [ubuntu] Re: Apple Keyboard

    Sounds to me like when you hook up the PC keyboard, X switches to PC layout and keeps it there. The issue with the numbers instead of letters could be that numlock is stuck on, which would cause the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Apple Keyboard

    Try using the 105-key standard PC map, with Meta mapped to your Cmd keys. Works for me, even the fn key. But Hardy's bizzarre, might not for you.
  4. [other] Re: Is it possible to run a Linux distro in Bootcamp?

    I'm beginning to think Boot Camp does something more than simply repartition; a little Window$ anecdote. Got a hold of TinyXP (already own a legal copy of XP, just saves me the work in nLite) a...

    Re: WOW + WINE, Mouse help.

    There is probably an easier method, but all I can think of is a simple script to switch between (rename) 2 xorg.conf files, one for WoW and one for everything else? Not sure if that would require...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Is macbook compatible for ubuntu 8.04?

    Quick and dirty fix for that.

    In OS X, download (something like) smcFanControl. That puts a little applet in the menubar that controls your fan speeds. Set it to max, should be 6000? Restart out...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Adjusting Volume resizes text in firefox!!!

    My only guess would be to check keybindings in your compiz and gtk. Not sure what firefox uses as the shortcut for resizing text, but my guess would be F4, as F5 is probably refresh. What is sounds...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Is macbook compatible for ubuntu 8.04?

    Sound is tricky to diagnose, seeing as we 3rd-gen users have Realtek -and- intel chipsets. You want to use intel, trust me, it's much simpler. Assuming you're using a cookie-cutter iso install, open...

    Re: Apple Intel Users FAQ

    Doesn't matter, the Core 2 Duo can run as either x86 or x86_64 (amd64), so just pick whichever suits your fancy. There is plenty of hot debate on which is the "better" structure, but generally...

    Re: WINE zoomed in

    Before you wipe and reinstall, make sure it's not a compiz issue. Compiz does all kinds of weird things to me with modifier keys and desktop zooming, effects, etc. Pop open a terminal and:

    sudo...
  11. Re: Problem with WoW on 8.04 with Wine 0.9.60

    This existed under the 8.04 beta as well, even using 0.9.58 and 0.9.59. Hardy broke it, Wine's still fine; I've got a little partition still running Gutsy and 0.9.60 pretty much dedicated to WoW, and...

    Re: WOW + WINE, Mouse help.

    As far as I can tell, Wine has support for 5-"button" functionality -to an extent.- One of the only problems I've personally had with using a mouse in Wine is getting modifier keys (meta, super,...
