[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?

Published at LXer:
Before Apple releases Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" next month, here's a look at how the latest point release of Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" is performing compared to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" and the latest development snapshot of Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" Linux.
Mounting HFS+ volumes under Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2007
Just thought I would pass this on, as it is not in any of the man pages! This drove me nuts for the better part of a day until I found a reference to this on some obscure web site discussing the kernel source code for FC6. I'm posting it here in the hopes that it will be useful for someone.
I was trying to retrieve some data on a hard drive from a
Powerbook G4 (the so-called "TiBook") that was running Mac OS X 10.3. That version of the OS uses Apple's HFS+ file system. I wanted to mount that hard drive on one of my Linux systems running FC6 so I can take the data off.
The man pages only mention HFS as a valid filesystem, so I tried mounting the volume with:
mount -t hfs <blah blah>
It would mount the hard drive alright, but it would only show me a few things on there, along with a readme file that says that I needed to upgrade to a version of MacOS greater than 8.6 or something like that. (I don't have the drive hooked up as I write this, so I can't go

stable Linux. Truth or Myth?
location: linux.com - date: October 11, 2011
I want to know if there is any such thing as a stable desktop Linux distro, or is it just a myth? Since I started playing with Linux I've probably tried more than a dozen different flavors on about a dozen different platforms. I can't be real specific because each one had its own problems; but for example, I've just re-installed Linux Mint 11. Within an hour, Firefox crashed without warning or explanation and shortly after that, The OS itself crashed hard and I had to restart the computer. These are typical problems I've had with Linux since I started playing with it more than 10 years ago. I would really like to use Linux to replace my Mac, but so far I haven't found one that I can count on. Is there a reliable distro? Or is there a way to make a buggy distro more reliable? So far I've tried most of the popular ones: Red Hat, Fedora, openSUSE, Ubuntu, Mint, Linspire, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. Of all of them, Mint 6 was my favorite, but each suc

Printers in Linux Mint and Ubuntu
location: linux.com - date: November 12, 2011
I have 2 network printers available to me - HP Officejet 6500 and Lexmark Prevail Pro 705. The HP installs in both Ubuntu and Mint (they are, after all basically the same). However, I can't get my Lexmark to install "out of the box", as there are no drivers included in either Distro. As I am a newbie to Linux, I am not yet comfortable working on the command line. Is there a simple, safe way to get the Lexmark installed? The Lexmark site implies that this printer is not compatible with Ubuntu-like OS newer than 10.10
Linux on a tablet
location: linux.com - date: January 25, 2012
This is my first post. So please let me know if I am putting this on the wrong section of the forum. I have seen the ipads and droid tablets out there. But I want a tablet running Linux. I would love to have Debian or Ubuntu on a tablet. But I can't find any companies selling such devices. I have seen the news stories out there that claim Ubuntu might have an announcement on an Ubuntu tablet in over a year from now.
Well I know Linux can run on almost anything. So why not an existing tablet? Can anyone point me in the right direction to a guide to installing Debian or Ubuntu on an existing Tablet? I currently do not own any tablet hardware. So any hardware that will be best suited for this project I will see about purchasing.
Thanks for your time and attention.
