  1. [ubuntu] Ubuntu sometimes doesn't boot, sometimes does.


    I have a couple of machines, both Dell Vostro 430, and sometimes they hang on boot (after GRUB) and sometimes they boot nicely.

    When they do boot, there is something about plymouth being...
  2. [ubuntu] Is there a way to install uhci-hcd (for use with a modem)?


    I've been searching for hours now, and I can't find anything. I am trying to install a (win)modem, one BT Voyager 105, and when I run eciadsl-start it fails with this:

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop -> external monitor=severe failure.

    I'm not going to stop using that key, for what I can see it does its job; tells the OS to make the switch. And EDID is a VESA standard.

    Thanks for the suggestion, will do.


  4. [ubuntu] Laptop -> external monitor=severe failure.

  5. [ubuntu] Re: Disable Builtin Wireless (while allowing USB)

    The only other thing I can suggest at the moment is to disassemble the laptop and remove the wireless card? If that's even possible.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Disable Builtin Wireless (while allowing USB)

    Is there not a wireless switch on the laptop? If not; is there an option in the bios to turn it off? There should be at least 1 of those available.

  9. Re: Code formatting settings for MonoDevelop

    Ok, I found a work around, albeit a bit inconvenient, using a thing called astyle.

    [ubuntu] Re: Aero Snap function?

    The 2 above posts by auh2o are problems for me too. This especially arises with the desktop; it will move it about if you have no other windows in focus, naturally causing issues.
