    [ubuntu] Re: HP Folio 13 Compatibility

    I run Arch Linux (x86_64) on the Folio 13.

    I agree with what others have posted, it's a nice, thin, fast machine. You may not get 7 hours out of it (or the 9 that HP claims!), but on Arch...

  10. Re: My (highly subjective) experiences with Windows 7 RC

    Everyone is going on about how fast Windows 7 is...and that may be so, and seems that way on my machine too.

    As we all know, however, Win XP is also damn fast on a fresh install. I'm looking...

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    Followed the guides, installed the 2 .deb files (on Jaunty 64-bit) - the psx32 deb and the lib32gtkglext deb.

    Program loads and runs, but only as root.

    Running as regular user, I get:

  12. Re: Thrustmaster firestorm dual power 3 usb not detected

    Problem solved in the 2.6.29 kernels. Pad is working again, but annoyingly, there is no longer a Force Feedback driver in the kernel for this device (at least not that I have found). Oh well.

  17. Poll: [ubuntu] Re: Mac4Lin - New releases, discussions, comments etc.

    Agreed. No need to re-invent the wheel. Clean GNOME theme packages are much more user-friendly and less likely to cause you ongoing headaches i.e. "the install script didn't work on my configuration".

    [ubuntu] Re: AGP Issue

    I had a similar problem (but may not be exactly the same!!) - I solved it by going into the BIOS and setting the AGP aperture to 128MB (from default 32). Worth a shot! You might try 64, 128 and even...
