    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Karmic broke my wireless settings

    The "NetworkManager" hack won't work on mine, either - I don't use Network Manager as I switched to WICD in a bid to get things working.

    Even more annoyingly, up to a point I could connect using...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Slower !!!

    bergfly,

    Thanks for the response, but I've had no luck with any solutions I've found on the board (or other websites). I will continue to dig!

    I have switched from Network Manager to WICD which...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Slower !!!

    Posted elsewhere - apologies for going off-topic on this thread. I just spent 2 hours (when I should have been studying... my bad!) trying to sort the wifi thing out and it's pee-ing me off :(

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Slower !!!

    OK, my speed (and graphics and sound and touchpad) issues are sorted by re-editing my GRUB and removing the old kernel. All tweaked so it now runs the new one.

    And my wi-fi now doesn't work. I...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Karmic broke my wireless settings

    I'm having very similar problems on my Acer TravelMate 2410. The wireless card is coming on in that it detects a load of networks, but it won't let me connect to the one I usually use. Again, I used...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 Slower !!!

    Forget booting - the entire install clunks along now. I'd guess my system is now running at about 25% of the speed it was before I "upgraded". Not good. Not good at all.

    [ubuntu] Re: Hard drive thrashing locking system

    I've used smartmontools and smartctl to check the Ubuntu partitions - no errors at all. So perhaps it's not the HDD at fault? Any other suggestions? Anyone?

    [ubuntu] Re: Hard drive thrashing locking system

    Guys, XP runs fine and for days on end (which is unlike XP on any system, frankly) so it's not the hard drive - unless the bad sectors are in the area used only by Ubuntu. I've got an XP partition,...

    [ubuntu] Hard drive thrashing locking system

    I've had this problem for some time, but on a laptop I put to one side a couple of months ago. I'm not back trying to use it and this issue is making it very hard to rely on. It's so bad I'm even...
  11. Poll: Re: LVPM: Upgrades Wubi installs to dedicated-partition Ubuntu installs

    You'll only have "read" because WUBI will be installed (or thinks it's installed) on that partition. This is the usual behaviour, so you'll likely have to edit the grub.lst file from DOS or Windows....

    The card is a "06:05.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)" which I believe was never a "favourite" of Ubuntu until recently....
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Repeated "error"(?) message. Is this normal?

    I'll give it a try, but I honestly doubt that's the issue. At my parents' (the one with the lower signal), there are one or two other networks that occassionally appear - usually with a strength of...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Repeated "error"(?) message. Is this normal?

    Hey, Irv - sorry, as I said I was digressing. The FAT32 thing is a side-issue. I have XP, Windows7 and Ubuntu on my laptop so I use a shared FAT32 partition that all OS's can access. If I'm working...

    [ubuntu] sa1 (I think) causing lock-up

    Folks,

    This one's been bothering me for a few weeks now and I'm seeking any help.

  19. Re: HowTo: Install skype and sms with skype in ubuntu 8.04

    Yes. At regular times (and when you manually tell it to), the system reached out to all the repositories listed in your "software sources" (from the menu: System / Administration / Software Sources)....
  20. Re: HowTo: Install skype and sms with skype in ubuntu 8.04

    Yes. Basically, if you install from a repository (of which Medibuntu is one of many) then if an updated version of the program is issued to that repository then your PC will be informed of it.

  22. Re: HowTo: Install skype and sms with skype in ubuntu 8.04

    Looks like you downloaded the 64-bit version when you're running 32-bit or vice-versa. Make sure you've got the correct .deb package version from the package source.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Skipping in Rhythmbox - fixed... but why?

    Well, there's the thing. I've re-enabled it as a test and got System Monitor running. It's telling me that despite my RAM usage only being around 49.5%, my swap usage stands at 26.5%. It's been...
