    Ubuntu

    Post by Kahan on Tue Sep 23, 2008 11:41 pm

    Anyone use this or have any experience with it? I installed it on the old laptop that I have and it went smoothly. Open office is great and everything runs smoothly till I try to update the OS or surf the internet. Looks like the frickin' wireless card drivers are causing it issues and the whole frickin' computer locks up when I try to do anything that is internet based. Tried just about everything I could find on the Ubuntu forums and tried loading through the Terminal and the internet. Hope I can figure it out. I am loading it onto a partition on the desktop and am hoping that that works better. The laptop was a custom built that I got from cyberpower.com that used some parts that I guess aren't that big/supported. Go figure.

    Anyways. Post your thoughts on, or experience with, and let me know.

    Wireless: Ralinktech RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI. RT61 driver. Won't give me the version though. Tried to update this one but the computer just hangs up.
