    lsmod shows the modules, alsamixer doesn't work.

    I installed to minimal and then into lubuntu-desktop (14.04).
    "Run alsamixer in 12.04 to find the ID" is what i mostly find :(

    Re: Linux Malware Released

    Not really, Linux (1991) didn't exist back then, assuming you refer to the Morris Worm (1988) :)

    Re: Linux for me

    Linux doesn't crash, certainly not like windows. There is a problem you have there, probably "driver" (kernel module) related.

    Re: What flavor of Linux?

    Don't do this, it is wasteful and slow/frustrating. Instead, get a couple of 1gb+ thumbdrives, iso images can quickly be put in those these days, and at the end of the day, you can still re-use the...

    I like it, keeping the LTS and the rest rolling. You'll have your parties every 2 years :P
