Re: 10 problems in Ubuntu
I guess I was always blessed with Linux compatible hardware. I always ran this same type of hardware because it was closest to the IBM PC stuff, and that is what Linux supports the best.
I have HP PC's and printers, Linksys routers and a System76 laptop.
I learned early on that the wrong hardware will kill a good Linux install.
I'm also a freak for keeping the inside of all of the house PC's clean. Even a little dust in there will make a PC run funny.
Patience. One should not be impatient when trying to learn another OS, especially one that is so different from the one they just came off of.
I just reinstalled Hardy on my 18 month old System76 laptop and didn't have to install the System76 driver. Everything worked out of the box!
Ubuntu found the Nvidia driver for me and installed it and once I remembered the password for the router, I had wireless.
And, I might add. When you are using Linux of any flavor, you will have to get to the command line sooner or later for one reason or another. Just jump in, the water's fine.
When in Rome, do as the Romans.
If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
