    Hmmm.

    Okay, but if I understand correctly, I will then have two Ubuntu instances: the image file I load into Hyper-V, and the one I boot into going the multi-boot route. Over time, these will get...

    [xfce] Ubuntu update broke screen resolution

    Okay, this is annoying.

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The box it's installed on uses onboard Intel video, and I normally use XFCE4 as my desktop.

    I have a 27" AOC monitor that uses 1920x1080...

  9. [all variants] Re: Telling Ubuntu to use a FAT32 partition as Swap?

    The rule of thumb I use is twice installed RAM, but whether I use a swap partition at all depends upon installed RAM.

    Swap is part of virtual memory. If more physical RAM is needed for something...

    If you have either module, I'll happily reimburse you for postage, or provide a FedEx # for shipping.

    [xubuntu] Re: Performance tuning for low end hardware

    Puppy uses a 2.6 kernel, and is fairly sprightly. (It's intended for low end kit, and the devs are always looking for tinier programs to substitute in the base install.) Third-party apps like...

    And in fact, I did just that, in the process of upgrading Puppy to v4.31. It helped a lot. Puppy is still sprightlier, but Ubuntu installed that way is actually usable on the Lifebook.

    Thanks...
