[SOLVED] migrate tablet pc from android to linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2012
Hi, I am planning to buy an android tablet and then install a linux OS. This is so that I can use mono and wine for a particular win app.
Are there likely to be h/w support issues as in some chips supported by Android not being supported by a regular linux (opensuse/ubuntu) distro?
triple boot 2 linux : PC BSD, Mandriva, and Mint 11
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2011
Hullo! This is my first post here.
Am bit of a newish user of Linux. I just completely erased my Windows in a dual boot setup with Ubuntu 11.10 after destroying the partitions.
Now, I am trying to get to work a triple boot system on one disk.
I installed PC BSD first, without the bootloader. Then Mandriva, then Linux Mint 11, which works fine
Grub 2 loads Mint fine, lists Mandriva, but cannot load it. I only get " a kernel panic not syncing" message. It cannot see the BSD install.
Here is the output of fdisk:

Converting an old Dell PC into a Print Server (?)
location: linux.com - date: January 25, 2011
I have recently acquired an old Dell Dimension 2400 with the intent of wiping the drive and installing Ubuntu on it. After successfully accomplishing this task, I hit upon the notion of converting it from a stand-alone desktop into a print server for use around my house. My goal is to hook it up to an old HP Inkjet printer of mine and be able to print wirelessly via CUPS. What would be the best method for accomplishing this goal?
Intel vs AMD Integrated Graphics for a Workstation PC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2012
I've been wanting to build a PC from scratch specifically for basic video capture/editing and general internet usage, and am trying to decide what CPU to purchase. As of now, I've mostly looking at the AMD A10 APUs and Intel Core i3 CPUs, since their pricing is very similar, and I'd like the keep the cost of the build down as much as possible, since this is more of a hobby build and not an actual profession.
I'm still a bit of a Linux newbie, so I'm not familiar with the state of GPGPU on Linux. I don't know if there are even applications that make use of it, or if the video drivers for either of these two solutions supports it. If not, I guess it comes down to which would offer better performance in a multithreaded environment. Does anyone have any advice as to what would be the best choice here? Thanks.

Linux recommendation for ASUS 1011cx eee PC Netbook
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 14, 2012
I just installed:
Linus Mint 9
I put it on an
Asus eee PC Netbook
I am unable to connect to the internet via wireless or wired connection. I have the driver .inf files and every single driver for the entire computer that comes with the Asus. I have these on a separate CD and have placed them in my Documents folder.
I have watched youtube tutorials on how to use ndiswrapper via the "wireless driver utility" and through the Terminal. Both have not solved my problem. I have pinged the network address and have added the wired connection via the network connections edit menu. None of these have worked for me.
Please, can anyone recommend a linux distribution that will work on my ASUS 1011cx eee PC Netbook?
I did try puppy linux and it did load the wireless utility and I was even able to use the internet. However, I can't stand the look of puppy linux and can't use it for my purposes at all. If anyone knows a linux distribution
Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook will not shutdown using Ubuntu 11.4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2011
I have an Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook which originally came with Windows 7 Starter installed.
Upon purchase I installed Ubuntu 9.4. Installation went well, and operation was excellent. I was particularly happy with the wireless networking automatically picking up various networks at my clients after coming out of hibernation.
The only glitch was and continues to be that when I go to shut down or restart the netboook it will send the term signal but the netbook then goes to the Ubuntu splash screen and continues to cycle across the bottom buttons indefinitely. (I don't think this is just that it takes a long time, because I have walked away from it for hours and it still is cycling.) If I wait for a couple of cycles and then hold down the power button the computer will shut down. Restarting it after this seems normal and everything operates normally.
This happens, both when I use the Gnome shutdown command on the logout menu or if I use : sudo shutdown -P now

Installing Ubuntu Netbook Remix on Asus Eee PC 1005P
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 26, 2010
I recently purchased an Asus Eee PC 1005P with Windows 7. I wanted to completely replace Windows with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 Karmic Koala, as Ubuntu as its my distro of choice. This is how I did it, as a very simple guide, for those who are contemplating the same. The ubuntuforums have saved my bacon more times than I can count; so this is my way of giving back (plus a handy repository if I want to do this again and forget how!).
In all in all, everything works great, with wireless being the biggest challenge during installation.
