    Ubuntu 8.10
    Laptop
    Dell C400
    PIII 1.2Ghz
    768MB Ram
    20GB HD
    Intel 2200 wifi card added (non-standard equipment, taken from a D5xx Dell laptop)

    I had to disable COMPIZ otherwise it wouldn't boot after installation.

    New Quick Fix
    Hit Esc at Grub boot menu
    Boot recovery mode
    Goto command prompt and run "Xorg -configure" (case sensitive capital "X")
    /root/xorg.config.new will be generated
    Take ONLY the settings for the "device" section(s) from xorg.config.new and overwrite the "device" section in /etc/X11/xorg.config
    reboot

    Old Fix (takes a long time)
    To boot to console and have a wired network connection working I had to do the following:
    Hit Esc at Grub boot menu
    Hit e to edit default boot option
    Highlight "kernel blah blah..." and hit e to edit
    Remove splash and type vga=773 then press enter
    Press b to boot
    At login prompt hit ctrl-alt-F1 to get console login
    To fix COMPIZ issue at the console I ran following commands:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    This took a long time to download and install, I went out to dinner and it had rebooted and was working properly by the time I got back.

    There are still some minor video issues but it works. As per Ubuntu 8.10 release notes there are bugs in the intel video driver for these old chipsets. Via the GUI menus System -> Preferences -> Appearances -> Visual Effects Tab -> "None" is the setting you want to disable the COMPIZ effects.

    Version Of Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 32 bit
    Asus M2N68-VM Motherboard
    2gb Corsair XSM2 cl5 ddr2 Ram
    AMD Athlon 64 x2 4850e 2.5ghz Processor
    Lite-On DVDRW iHAP222-06
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500AAKS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

    So far this set up has worked great. I am just now trying to troubleshoot the codecs issue and no being able to view dvd's in totem.

    I only have this set up with a Dell CRT vga analog screen, usb logitech mouse, and IBM ps2 keyboard.

    No hitches, just the dvd glitch so far

    8.10 Live CD
    Dell Dimension XPS D333
    PII 333 MHz, 192 MB RAM, nVidia Ti4200, Toshiba CD-ROM, 2 IBM hds on mainboard (10 & 8 GB), 2 more hds on Maxtor PCI100 card (2 x Maxtor 40 GB). MS Natural Keyboard (1st gen., via PS/2), MS optical trackball, Samsung Synchmaster 570V LCD monitor.

    Runs without problems, although not surprisingly, slightly slowly.
    I just needed GParted to examine/wipe a hd I want to throw away, so on a whim I put in the CD; I'm surprised at how well the OS runs. I don't plan on installing Ubuntu on that machine, but it looks like I could if I wanted to.

    Intrepid Ibex 8.10 64-bit

    BIOSTAR TA90GX Motherboard
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz CPU
    G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066
    WD Caviar Black 750GB HDD
    Logitech PS/2 Mouse and Keyboard
    ASUS VH222H 21.5" Monitor
    LG 22x DVD+/-RW SATA DVD Burner

    Plugged it all in and it just worked. One minor problem:

    The recommended resolution on the monitor is 1920x1080, but if I try to set it as such using the ATI drivers I downloaded it doesn't fill the whole monitor, and leaves black space around the edges. I have to use 1680x1050 for it to fill the whole screen. It's a long term problem I'd like to fix.
