  1. [ubuntu] How to force VSYNC off using Radeon (Open-source) driver?

    Is there an easy way to do this without creating an xorg.conf just for one option? I've grown...weary...of FGLRX' shenannigans, but I can't get Vsync off using the Radeon driver - CS:Source for...
  2. [xubuntu] Re: Acer laptop randomly goes into standby.

    Right-o. This last time, I was in Chromium browsing through the Steam autumn sale when XScreensaver's lock dialog popped up and the machine went to sleep.

    I've got it set to never go to sleep...
  3. [xubuntu] Acer laptop randomly goes into standby.

    It hasn't happened often, but very occasionally my Aspire 5560 will just up and decide to go into sleep mode. I haven't found anything interesting in syslog, there's a few lines about anacron a...

    [ubuntu] Re: EFI bootup freeze on Aspire 5560

    Thanks, but I got it figured out a while ago. Should you decide to give up on UEFI, I discovered that if you remove the efi directory from the Ubuntu installer (either make a USB stick and remove it,...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Grub Won't load after Ubuntu Installed Win 7 Boots Automatically

    From personal experience, I would recommend against using UEFI on this machine (I also have a 5560). For whatever reason, running in UEFI mode causes the system to hang at boot every other attempt....
  6. [ubuntu] Dual booting UEFI equipped notebook - Acer Aspire 5560

    [SOLVED] Re: UEFI Hang at boot

    I just wiped the disk, reset to MBR and clean-installed both systems for BIOS mode. Both boot fine from GRUB in MBR.

    Stick a fork in it, it's done.

    [SOLVED] Re: UEFI Hang at boot

    I just had a brainwave. Renaming the efi directory on the usb install media forces the Ubuntu installer to run in BIOS emulation (brings up syslinux purple thing instead of the UEFI grub menu), which...
