    It's the DebianEeePC version. Installed, I compiled the MadWifi driver and it was pretty much it. I have an older laptop that used to run Ubuntu with Openbox so all I did was to transfer the Openbox...

    Re: Impossible to betray Ubuntu...

    You guys have some good points. Maybe openSUSE isn't what I'm searching for. Maybe Ubuntu isn't the right one but it's definately closer. I have an Asus EEE 701 that's running Debian and I never feel...

    Impossible to betray Ubuntu...

    Why is it that every time I decide to try any other linux distribution I always feel that something is missing? Yesterday I installed openSUSE because it looks really nice and seems to be really...

    As long as you don't expect a huge screen and lots of power (that you won't use) you will be all right.

    [other] Re: Is it worth buying the Eee PC?

    I got my Asus EEE 701 last week. If you buy it and expect to get the same as a cheap notebook you'll be massively disappointed. But if you want a highly portable unit with a decent screen it's...

    The swap partition is used by the OS in case the physical RAM runs out. Then it'll be able to move things to the swap partition and continue to run. You won't benefit from having swap on the external...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible Computer?

    Well, USB powered devices aren't allowed to draw that much power. Absolute maximum is 500 mA and that translates to 2.5 W. So you'll have to run quite a lot of USB devices to justify anything in the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible Computer?

    But a normal HDD uses only about 10-20W of power. Only problem you could run into is when you start them all at the same time. But with less than 4 drives I would not care to worry about it.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Need Help with Twinview (1360x768 + 1280x1024)

    I assume you have the nVidia drivers enabled.

    Then you'll need to install the package nvidia-settings. Either you use Synaptic and search for it or you can run

    You could use something like this to write random data to sdXX (you'll have to figure out the device name of the external drive, usually sdd or something.

    [ubuntu] Re: should i buy a matched pair of DDR400?

    I would say that either way is fine.
    If you choose to buy 1x1GB and replace the erronous one make sure it's the same speed, not only frequency (400 MHz) but latency (5-3-3-3 or similar).

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to install fresh (not upgrade) Ubuntu 8.04 from Alternate CD image

    Be sure you don't ditch any files that you might want so save.
    I always install with a separate partition for home so that I do not have to lose any files. (But a backup is always a good idea.)
