    [SOLVED] Re: why wont this driver load??

    If a native driver is available, I would use it over NDIS. The message is telling you that you don't need ndiswrapper because there is a native driver present. A Windows NDIS driver isn't necessarily...

    [all variants] Re: Can't boot from CD

    Partitioning wont do it. Are the CD's scratch free and is the drive clean (especially if you keep it on the floor).

    [SOLVED] Re: why wont this driver load??

    The general consensus of opinion is that the ndis wrapper will not work for this chipset, although some cards have had some success.

    [ubuntu] Re: Make ubuntu minimal megs?

    I can't imagine why I'd do it that way around. Install a minimal system (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD) then add what you need. Voila, minimal system.

    On any system with limited specification (such as netbooks) where browsing is the primary role (such as netbooks) then browser speed is relevant. You originally asserted that such speed differences...

    It was only a year ago, we even had a howto discussing moving Firefox's profile into memory, there is a mention of the issue at OpenSUSE and Arch Linux discussing the sqlite issue and overcoming it.

    Re: The new browser wars..

    That's not always true - netbooks such as the Aspire One came with Firefox. It was noticeably slower than Webkit based browsers on SSD with limited memory.

    In fact, Firefox 3.x was worse on SSD...
