    [ubuntu] iSight won't turn off

    Booted into Ubutnu tonight (Macbook 1,1) and the green light for my iSight came on (I haven't installed anything to try to get it to work, basically a clean install of Ubuntu).

  4. Re: “How to” Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 (Ubuntu installed first)

    i'm trying to figure out what the problem is. Windows 7 made two partitions (both of which I can mount in Ubuntu). One is 200 mb and houses a file called "bootmgr". The other is 40some gigs and is...
  5. Re: “How to” Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 (Ubuntu installed first)

    Ok, I "repaired" Windows 7 -- which did say that I "had a problem with my startup" but I still get the same "missing bootmgr" message in GRUB.

    Any new ideas?
  6. Re: “How to” Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 (Ubuntu installed first)

    It seems like that's taking me in a circle. I got to this point because installing Windows 7 wiped my grub. Then I re-installed grub and now I get this BOOTMGR thing.

    I'll give it a shot, just...

    Thanks.

    [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Firefox won't open external links

    This has been going on for a little while, but only recently gotten annoying. It happens with three different apps too, so I know it's Firefox.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Broadcom 4318 works with Puppy 4.1.1, why not in Ubuntu?

    well...it was working. Now, it takes up to 5 restarts to get the wireless to "engage." Usually Ubuntu starts up, but does not offer any choice of wireless networks.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    I'm running Intrepid on a Gateway MX6121. Tell me what to run to find out what my trackpad is so I can get this problem tracked down. Suspend works perfectly besides the trackpad not waking.
