    [ubuntu] Re: Pangolin Performance One-Month Review.

    If the onboard speakers seem too soft, you might need to crank up the "PCM" and "Front" settings using the "alsamixer" command-line utility instead of the default GNOME mixer.

    [other] Re: Recover formatted HFS+ partition?

    If you really care about the data, boot from Mac OS X (ie. by re-installing it on an external firewire drive) and get one of the many shareware HFS+ recovery tools that run on OS X.

    Since HFS+...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: 8.10 - (G3 iBook rev 2.2) Gnome can not launch apps.

    Sounds like you may be running out of RAM. How big is the swap partition?

    Also, try saving /var/log/Xorg.0.log and and /var/log/messages onto a flash drive and attach them to this thread.

    [ubuntu] Re: Wireless Help on a G3 Ibook

    Simply plugging the USB key while the computer is off in and then rebooting should work. If not, give 8.10 a try.

    [ubuntu] Re: Get it Off!

    The only way I've found to reliably burn .dmg disks is using the "Disk Utility" that comes with Mac OS X. Do you have a friend with a Mac OS X computer that can burn the CD for you? Oh, and if you...

    [all variants] Re: Apple G5 PowerMac

    It's a fairly recent and powerful system, but Apple makes a lot of proprietary customizations to its hardware, so Ubuntu may not have optimized drivers for it.

    Give Intrepid a try once it comes out! It will certainly do WPA2 and WEP.

    [ubuntu] Re: ubuntu vs. os x on old ibook g3

    Given that there is no Flash version for PPC, I'd say you might be disappointed in Ubuntu. Blame it on Adobe/Macromedia's policy of making Flash closed source. As much as I love Ubuntu and Linux, OS...

    [all variants] Re: imac g3 installation problems

    Make sure you unplug all peripheral devices (USB, etc). Open Firmware on IMac G3's tends to fail to detect bootable CDs with you have non-Apple peripherals plugged in. For example, it kept spitting...
  15. [all variants] Re: Need to burn old mac cd image - imac G3 can't boot from cd burned in Linux??

    Make sure you unplug all USB devices except the Apple keyboard (which of course you need to use in order to press C).

    My Blue iMac G3 used to spit out the boot CD every time, until I finally...
  16. [all variants] Re: Boycott NVIDIA, use AMD/ATI discrete graphics or Intel

    What kind of support are you looking for from AMD/ATI? If you ask on the Phoronix forum, you'll surely get an answer from bridgman, agd5f or mtippet, all of whom are AMD employees.

    You can also...

    If you'd bother to quote some examples from the article to support your assertions, perhaps they would be more that hot gas, but you can't because you're just making stuff up. To prove the point,...

    Dell has started selling only AMD/ATI discrete graphics cards for their Dell Inspiron 530N desktop computers, which come pre-loaded with Ubuntu. I hope System76 will follow Dell's lead in rewarding...

    [xubuntu] Re: iMac G3

    The fact that OpenFirmware was able to load the Linux kernel from the CD and execute it seems to indicate that the CD-Rom drive is working fine. Much more likely is that the ide/pmac.c driver that...
