    [ubuntu] Re: Dell mini 10

    I would HIGHLY recommend the Mini 10v over the Mini 10 (and the Mini 12). The 10v uses the Intel GMA 950, and the 10 (and 12) use the Intel GMA 500.

    Dell's Ubuntu mix is okay for it's target audience. If you want something simple that works okay out of the box than stick with it. I did not prefer it, but that is because I knew what I wanted.

    Ooh, if the 10v has the GMA 950 that sounds like a great pick.

    Are you using the -13 kernel or the -11 kernel? If you removed the new packages and are using the -11 kernel it should not be surprising that your system is working... you just reverted to the last...

    Flash works for the mini 12. The problem is that A) The video drivers are bad, and B) Flash requires decent video drivers and a decent cpu (neither of which the mini 12 has). Yes it works, but not...
