    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    Thanks for the link. I got autofs working with my NFS server with help from the PPT file on this site.
  2. Re: Apple churns out an iPhone. Redefines the word "cellphone"

    I love the idea of a F/OSS phone, and this one looks great, but I can't see the touchscreen interface being a good thing on a cell phone. I'm hoping this touchscreen fad is just a phase, or that I'm...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    Because Linux and Ubuntu did not start for the same reasons. Ubuntu started with (at least partially) the purpose of knocking Windows off it's throne. Linus and the others who originally created...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    I wondered the same thing. I don't really know anything about AGP patent issues, so I have no idea. The AGP patent issues were brought up by a previous poster.

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    As far as I know even Intel graphics have a binary blob. Assuming that's true, continuing to buy and protesting is about the best we can do at the moment, as I don't know of *any* graphics...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    Awesome question.

    The answer depends on who you ask, and all three are likely responses.

    As a distro, I would say Ubuntu strives for #3. Ubuntu's bug #1 states that Microsoft has a majority...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    This is offtopic, but I see this over and over. The metacity compositor appears to be dead. No further development. The metacity team seems to be content with the idea of deferring compositing to...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    Does that mean we might see open source drivers now that the market is moving to PCI Express?



    I wasn't implying that we should pay hardware vendors separately for their drivers. It's an...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    You're confusing what the OP means by the word "free". You're using it in the context of free beer. The OP means free speech. What the free driver advocates are really after is the source code,...

    Poll: Re: Should Feisty Fawn include binary/non-free drivers to enable Composite by default

    It's not really about elitism as much as principles. Some people highly value free (as in speech) software. To call that mindset elitist is a bit naive. The question of the thread asks what people...

    Poll: Re: how free is your ubuntu?

    I try to run free. All new music is encoded in ogg, and I'm replacing mp3s with ogg as quickly as practical. I do run flash, java, and non-free codecs just so I'm not cut off from the world.

    I...

    Re: New music player - Exaile!

    Sadly, no. I'm a techie. My girlfriend says I'm a good photographer, but I think she's way too biased. And that's about as artsy as I get.

    Re: Recommend me an MP3 player

    I'm sure a lot of people will recommend iPods, and you'll have to find out from them how well they work (or don't work) with Ubuntu and its various media programs.

    I personally don't have an MP3...

    Re: rhapsody for linux

    I'm (anxiously!) waiting for the updates to allow it to work with FF 1.5. I've got it going on my Mac though. It's so nice to be able to use it without Windows. Right now I have to run WinXP...
  20. Re: Good news for people with Broadcom wireless chips

    The iBook G4 is among many to use the Broadcom chipset, so it should be included. I'm sure the Ubuntu devs will pay special attention to making sure that works for iBook users, since out-of-the-box...
  21. Re: Good news for people with Broadcom wireless chips

    Hey, this news is a whole lot better than earlier this year when I bought my iBook. I remember reading forum posts that said not to expect iBook wireless support *ever*. I'll gladly take this.

  23. Poll: Re: Epiphany or firefox default browser for dapper?

    This is great news. If this hits in time for 2.14, this plus the general Gnome performance improvements being made in CVS right now will make 2.14 a very nice upgrade.
  24. Poll: Re: Epiphany or firefox default browser for dapper?
