    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 show low UID on GDM login screen

    I also tried making a change to /etc/gdm/custom.conf

    [greeter]
    include = user1,user2


    Making this config change works in 32bit. It's only broken in 64bit. Must be a bug?

  9. [all variants] Re: Websites which discriminate about your Operating System

    I'm new to this, and so I examined the fields given in User Agent Switcher to understand how it's working.

    True. I just tried creating a blank user agent and I get the same "Picasa is not currently available for your operating system" message.

    I just tried user agent switcher on Firefox and that does what it says. A nice workaround, thanks.

  15. [ubuntu] Fakeraid RAID 0 works, but only once. Then "Offline Member"

    This is an odd problem. As an experiment I built a machine with Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit on RAID 0 using 2x identical HDDs.

    The system boots perfectly and runs just fine. However, when it's shut...
