    Is there a way to update the bios for the NB205 in ubuntu? It appears that the Toshiba bios tool is a windows .exe. I have Ubuntu Maverick installed and it is booting so slow I can't believe it. Yes, I already had it on SATA compatibility mode in the bios. I think 10.04 booted much faster.

    Conor's most recent post here about the grub fix resolved my problem with boot times in Maverick on the Toshiba NB205. I've got 50 of them. Hopefully the grub setup will carry over cleanly with the image, when I ghost them all with FOG.

    I have updated the BIOS using a guide earlier in this thread, but too lazy to find it again. Basically you download the update and extract an ISO file that you use to update

    Updating from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 has caused a freezing problem for some NB200 and similar users. The symptoms are that the display freezes repeatedly, causes music playback stuttering and looping and these freezes can be ended while moving the pointer or pressing keys. One possible solution is listed here.
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/linux/+bug/657990 - especially post #22.

    try adding "clocksource=jiffies nolapic_timers" to the kernel command line
    parameter.

    sudo pico /etc/default/grub

    change
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

    to
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nolapci_timer clocksource=jiffies"

    save changes

    sudo update-grub

    reboot

    Hi I'm quite the newbie here and I need some help, I have a (UK) NB200 12N and I installed ubuntu the USB Stick way, I am always connected to my modem usually at 100%, but my internet sometimes fails to display the webpage and gives an error message, I know ubuntu is installed because I did it twice, right now I'm on windows because my internet won't stop failing, EPICALLY.
    any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    People enjoy different things, don't we? My NB200 wouldn't switch on the wifi card due to having not turned wifi on under Windows first (I removed Windows before using it). This is Toshiba's fault, rather than Ubuntu's. There is a Linux fix for this using the omnibook kernel module but it isn't straightforward to implement. It has taken me a few late nights, but I'm sending this message with my newly working wifi connection. The feeling of making the thing work at last is, well, enjoyable.

    If you're still interested in fixing this problem, there are several wifi troubleshooting guides that might help. If you had an error message it would be helpful to quote it to give some idea of what the problem might be.

    I fixed the wifi problem too, but I could not fix the battery problem (see above). It was a friends netbook, so I had to reinstall winXP. I really enyou to "free" computers form MS, but in this case was imposible
