    [ubuntu] Re: MacBook Air 3,2 && bad wifi performance

    I just installed natty on my Air and had the same issue -- notably synaptic would insta-kill the connection, which made it impossible to upgrade anything!

    I just had this error trying to use a torrent -- however, after searching the web and checking Transmission again, I see that despite the error, everything is downloading/uploading ok.

    [ubuntu] Re: Asus Eee 1008ha touchpad issue

    Those instructions are to enable emulation; I'd really prefer to first understand whether that's truly necessary or not. At this point I'm wondering whether some 1005/1008 units support multitouch...

    [ubuntu] Re: Asus Eee 1008ha touchpad issue

    I think I read somewhere that even on the default windows install, only the zooming motions, not two-finger scroll, was working.

    I have this issue too; I just replaced a stolen 901 with a 1008, and it's aggravating not having the multitouch features.
