    Memory Leak in NetworkManager:
    - Workaround : use Intrepid package which is fixed.
    - Bug Report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ha...er/+bug/203016


    Fell free to propose other known Hardy Heron bugs to be listed here but think to provide a link to the workaround and a link to the corresponding launchpad entry.

    Re: Known Hardy bugs and workarounds

    for excessive io activity in firefox 3b5 a more permenant solution is
    Edit>Preferences>Security and then uncheck the 2 boxes that start out "tell me if the site I'm visiting"

    also if u have random exits (aka segmentation fault) in ff3b5 type this into terminal, don't worry youtube still works
    sudo mv /usr/lib/libflashsupport.so /usr/lib/libflashsupport.so.org

    i didn't come up with either fix but i don't remember where i read it either, but both are working for me

    if u use vlc and firefox at the same time where u need audio in both, in my computer (acer 5580) audio will only work for one or the other, to get around this in vlc click
    settings>preferences>click advanced advanced settings at the bottom> then on the left pane fan out audio>click output modules> change from default to alsa audio output>click save at the bottom
    and your done

    Or, the much better way of doing this is
    Code:
    sudo aptitude remove libflashsupport
    to actually remove the package rather than just make it not work .
    Remember: if your problem is not described on a Launchpad bug, it can only be fixed by accident!

    SATA drives not detected in IDE mode

    -Bug report : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/153702

    Either adding "all_generic_ide" to GRUB
    Or switch the SATA mode in the BIOS from "IDE" to "RAID"

    Or, for those less saavy with CLI, you can do alt-F2 and type that in, or for that matter just open synaptic and remove it . These little things can help keep converts instead of them running screaming back to windows/mac -whateva

    Its not only the advice we give sometimes, but the way its given that matters too, as we aren't all geeks -this will change even more I suspect as vista users run away screaming from that platform ? ( or run to them mac-who knows--
