    [ubuntu] Re: Video card for Ratel

    Thanks for the reply. One of the reasons I looked into the system76 stuff is because of your support on this board.

    I have hard drives a-plenty already (1.5 T) and I can either swap the existing...

    [ubuntu] Video card for Ratel

    I am seriously contemplating purchase of a Ratel. I'd be using it for mostly "normal" use (browsing, playing mp3s, etc) but I would also like to try to do some video editing (despite the poor reviews...

    [ubuntu] Low audio outpu, Fujitsu c2210

    Hi! I've never owned a laptop in my life and yesterday someone gave me a Fujitsu c2210 Lifebook. My Ubuntu experience has been with an old Mac G4 desktop so there's not too much commonality there.

    [ubuntu] Re: Choppy Video

    The default System Monitor in 9.04 is preposterous. I had never used Ubuntu until about a month ago and I installed it on an old machine; I thought, "This is great, but I'd like to have a monitor...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Copying from Ubunto to internal Mac hard drive

    I got it working now. The partition was already unjournaled. I needed to run Nautilus as root user, that's all.

    However, my normal file browser is thunar and I can't seem to figure out how to do...

    Ah, I understand. Thanks for that information; I think the best thing will be a shared partition of the kind you mention. That doesn't sound too onerous.

    [ubuntu] Re: nothing happens after install

    You can install 9.04 on a PowerPC; in fact, it is much easier than getting 8.x to work. I have it working fine on my G4 Sawtooth and I couldn't get 8.10 to install at all because I'm such a dork with...

    [ubuntu] Re: Installing Ubuntu 6.06 On A iMac G3?

    9.04 might not be that wonderful for him if he only has 384 megs of ram.

    Brandon, will the iMac boot off a Mac CD, like an install disk or a utility disk?

    Both of my G4s boot up fine in Jaunty without an edited xorg.conf file, but they only showed two resolutions (800x600 and 640x480) before editing. However, I never got a black screen so I assume the...
