Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)
Well I am back to Ubuntu and liking it. I resized my swap partition then when trying to make it mount on boot I somehow messed up the whole HHD. Not even Gparted on a live cd could read anything. I didn't fell like spending the next month installing Archlinux and after installing Xubuntu on 4 of my friends computers I have come to find two things. One, getting niddy griddy with Linux is a lot of fun though time consuming. Two, at then end of the day you just want your computer to work with out a bunch of hassle. So, back to friendly Ubuntu it is.
Really, what took me ~4hrs to install and setup in Xubuntu (xorg, Xfce, video driver, flash, java, laptop-mode-tools, locals, volume button, clock, logfiles....) Would have taken me 30+ hrs with Archlinux.
And I am glad to report that 8.10 is Good.
Wireless is up on boot
Sound stays where you set it And Sound sounds better.
Headphones Mute the speakers
Back light "Seems like" it is brighter. Mine dose that thing chargersfan420 was talking about but hay it seems brighter for real. When I first booted into the live CD it thought the screen was full bright for sure.
