    Re: When to Re-Install the OS?

    There is no need to reinstall every 6 months. Windows users don't say and don't do that. Given the particular peculiarity of the question, I'd venture a suggestion, you should spend less time on...

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Old laptop w/GeForce Go 6150 - Corrupted Graphics

    Welcome. I case someone finds this useful, there are a few other distros that should work well on very old hardware.
    I usually recommend AntiX, Puppy Linux and Slitaz.

    What is "the corrupted graphics"?
    The hardware in question is 15 years old. Even if you do manage to install Ubuntu on something like that, it would not work well, and make you frustrated and...

    [SOLVED] Re: No NVidia driver

    Well..., it depends. While Xubuntu 20.04 is supported until 04.2023, the base system gets 5 years, and after that, there is also extended support. So, you don't have to replace it for a quite some...

    [SOLVED] Re: No NVidia driver

    Welcome, and thanks for the feedback.
    Those Geforce 9000 GPUs are supported by the legacy nvidia-390 driver. Nvidia dropped support at the end of 2019, and so 20.04 with the original kernel 5.4 is...

    [SOLVED] Re: No NVidia driver

    21.10 is too new for GeForce 9600 GT from 2008. You have to use 20.04 with the original 5.4 kernel.

  12. Re: EEEPC 1000 and RT2790 WLAN problems

    AFAIK, Debian does not include proprietary wireless firmware, almost all wireless cards need. For whatever reason, they call it "some obscure wireless cards". Pretty sure their wiki has more info.

    [SOLVED] Re: problem with radeon and driver

    There seems to be nothing wrong with "my video driver". It is "radeon", and it does not need an update.
    You broke Kodi with vdpau, but now it is fixed. So, if it's not broken, don't fix it.
