  1. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    That's wonderful!

    The funny thing is, I already HAVE Ubuntu-Tweak - I just never realized I could use it for this purpose. THANK YOU for pointing me in that direction.
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    Yup, discovered that :) thank you.

    Will the system now update the new kernel?

    Also, how do I clean all the old kernel packages from a particular kernel? right now by removing one all that goes...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    Bachstelze, this worked. Thank you so much!

    I now can see 3.8GB of RAM, as opposed to 2.9GB I saw before. Yay!
  4. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    Probably a silly question, but... do I need to remove anything first? or will installing this basically move my system to the PAE version?
  5. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    Ah!

    I was looking through the packages there and couldn't find the linux-generic-pae one... didn't realize I needed to grab the "image" one!

    Thank you for that tip. I'll give it a shot and...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    To get 2.6.35, I followed the instructions here:

    http://theubuntunews.blogspot.com/2010/08/install-new-kernel-2635-on-ubuntu-1004.html

    Worked flawlessly. But I can't figure out how to now go to...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    Frogs Hair,

    Thank you. I tried doing that, but when I type sudo apt-get install linux-generic-pae what I get is an update of the 2.6.32 kernel, rather than the 2.6.35 one.

    Is there any way to...
  8. [SOLVED] How to switch from 2.6.35 to 2.6.35 pae?

    All,

    I've tried looking for an answer, and I found a number that relate to the problem but do not address it directly. Because this is a kernel installation, I'm really nervous about trying stuff...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 fails

    I am so sorry, I didn't know that. I will not do so again in the future.

    Anyway, I solved my own problem.

    What I did was go to Synaptics and look for all the "non-standard" packages - things...

    [ubuntu] Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 fails [SOLVED]

    Argh! I've been using Ubuntu since Hardy; I have never had this issue before, even as I went from Hardy to Intrepid, Intrepid to Jaunty, and finally to Karma.

    I tried searching for a solution here...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Begging for help - upgrade to Karmic messed up my printer

    I got the printer working again by rebuilding drivers.

    However, I still can't print - it keeps complaining about missing toner, when in fact there is plenty of such.

    How is that possible? how...
  13. [ubuntu] Begging for help - upgrade to Karmic messed up my printer

    I am really stuck this time and it's a royal mess.

    I recently upgraded my machine to Karmic (from Jaunty). The upgrade went more or less fine.

    I have a Minolta QMS 2300 DL color laser at home....
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Connecting 2 Ubuntu computers via ethernet cable?

    And you should be using a "cross" cable - otherwise both computers will have their send and transmit wires on the same side, making the connection fail.

    The easiest way to know if a cable is...

    It took me all this time to properly try and duplicate this problem in a consistent manner, because there was literally nothing to work from.

    [ubuntu] Re: Wired ethernet problem in Jaunty

    No one?

    A couple more points: the port DID work in Windows at the time, so it would appear not to have been a hardware issue.

    Looks like something that got triggered by the interaction between...

    Yes, strange indeed... that is the point :-)

    I cannot obtain an IP address for the simple reason that the ethernet interface is "stuck" - it doesn't negotiate. I can't find a way to shut it down...

    Yes, I know; the laptop works really well with Ubuntu, and I am extremely happy with it - except for a very small list of problems. Unfortunately, two of those are so severe that they...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Hardy intermittent problem with going into suspend

    Thank you; I've done many google searches, but I'm trying to them based on the model rather than the problem. One thing I've dug up already is a BIOS update process for the x61s which may end up...
