    Mangocrazy,

    If you select "Add new programs", click on Settings, Repositories. Click on Advanced and "Show unused repositories" or something like that. I enable all of the binary and disable the source usually.

    Yes, only if you provide a DNS service.

    I had one problem with the hotplug : no sound and no network so I put it back, maybe later I'll do something like you I don't know.

    Also, when I'm closing KDE / X like when shutting down, it stays a bit on a black screen before showing again the terminal.

    Finally, when the computer is starting, after I see the alsa message, there is a little problem, the font thing is like written over the alsa message, and at the end I have like the beginning of the alsa message, some blank space, the end of the font message.

    It's very strange, but it's way faster,

    If you are using hotplug service to map the network devices (which is the default) then network wouldn't start. The same, sound card is probed by hotplug subsystem. For network, you can take a look your /etc/network/interfaces file, comment out the hotplug mapping section and put whatever the device to the "auto" line. For your sound card, find out what module it uses and put it into /etc/modules file. btw, Dapper will drop hotplug and only use udev.

    Hello,

    well it's ok, it's already way faster, and maybe I'll need hotplug for a plug'n play thing later (like a mouse, camera, or else, maybe not )

    KermitJr,

    Thanks - I'm now "universe-aware" and my wife has a lot of new games to play on her machine... So that's alright.

    In fact Ubuntu has effortlessly supplanted XP as my wife's choice of boot; there are more games and she can still surf/do email etc.

    Result!

    Question Shut down asking for root passwd!

    hi! everyone! I followed the instructions and the boot is faster but when I turn off my laptop asks me for the root passwd, do you know what service or what I did wrong?

    Thank you so much!
