    [ubuntu] Re: Damaged partition recovery

    I can't get to anything on there right now. I've got testdisk, but I can't seem to do anything with it. I assume if I just tried to change the file system back to ext3 it would erase everything?

    [ubuntu] Re: nVidia Drivers and Flash

    I turned off all effects goodies, and flash stuff was still pretty slow. I guess it's just a matter of the nVidia driver not being too hot at that stuff. If we could just merge the nv driver with the...
