    [ubuntu] Re: Programs hogging sound.

    I set up Pulse. Seems to work partially. Everything works together now except for WoW, but I'm guessing that's some kind of Wine issue?

    [ubuntu] Re: Programs hogging sound.

    No effect. Unfortunately it's not just Flash. If I have any app open that uses sound in any way before I load WoW, the sound in WoW(wine overall?) will not work until I close those apps and restart...

    Well it's done. I have Ubuntu set up on a 30GB partition with a 600GB partition mounted as /home. I left 10GB remaining on the drive for whatever reason in the future I might want to try with it. ...

    Well I finally did it. I switched over to Ubuntu as my main OS. However I'm having a few little annoyances along the way with video and sound. Here are my system specs.

  16. [all variants] Re: Hard drive arrived. Setting up and need advice.

    Ok. So now that I correctly understand how mounting a partition to /home works (thank you, danwood, for clarifying that for me) I've decided that the best approach for me will be to go as planned by...

  22. [all variants] Re: Need advice for a light flavor of Ubuntu for an old laptop

    I guess I threw that in there since I understand that KDE is a less system demanding environment than Gnome. Or am I wrong on that?

    So I have Xubuntu and Fluxbuntu suggested so far. I'll look...
