    [SOLVED] Re: RAM size mismatch

  7. [all variants] Re: How linux distros are derived from other distros?

    If you're just doing it for your own use, it'd take longer to set up a PXE server than to just use a USB drive... How many people still burn cd's?

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu doesn't recognize onboard Realtek HD

    That particular Realtek chipset is supported already so no need to start messing with installing a replacement ALSA driver. Most likely things aren't being routed right. To give us a better idea of...

    Re: Contemplating 64 bit clean install
