Cheers, muffinman, your guide cleared all issues in one go!

Just for completeness, regarding the issue tsixlas mentioned (geia sou tsikh...), a quote from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...s/ToshibaNB205

1. You must still do this:

Kernel Boot Fix

As of kernel 2.6.31-18, there have been problems relating to speed and the system intermittently freezing. By default, the NB 205 (and other related models such as the NB 200) sometimes freeze and suffer from low performance due to a power-saving feature of the Linux kernel. Dramatic speed increases have been noted with this feature disabled (boot speeds increased by 20 seconds). If you wish, this feature can be disabled.

To disable the kernel feature (if using the GRUB2 bootloader), use a text editor as root to open the file: /etc/grub.d/10_linux

Find the section near the top that looks as follows:

save_default_entry | sed -e "s/^/\t/"
prepare_grub_to_access_device ${GRUB_DEVICE_BOOT} | sed -e "s/^/\t/"
cat << EOF
linux ${rel_dirname}/${basename} root=${linux_root_device_thisversion} ro $2

Add the following to the end of that last line:


...so the full line reads:

linux ${rel_dirname}/${basename} root=${linux_root_device_thisversion} ro $2 nohz=off

Then run the following from the Terminal to complete the fix:

sudo update-grub

A reboot will be required to apply the change.
