    Agreed - that would be nice. It would also be nice to be able to specify how much space to allocate to a swap partition - a FAT32 partition to be able to swap files with windoze PCs would be nice. ...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Microphone not working - System76 driver breaks alsa-source

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Microphone not working - System76 driver breaks alsa-source

    Sorry, I re-read that and yes, it wasn't clear.
    There are really two issues:
