Wow, it has been a year since my last blog and it just prove how bad I am for keeping up with currents. I now have 12.10 and abandoned Win 7. Yes Google is my friend and also decided to get “Ubuntu Made Easy” and “How Linux Works.” I would love to praise Ubuntu Forums however it’s difficult to get support. I have resigned myself to reading and lots of search on the internet. A lot of time the answer is there because these issues are pretty common as well as the fix. Setting up accounts today and irc channels.
So far 12.10 has been smooth sailing for the most part. As with all bleeding edge software, you are going to have the ticks. There are only two I am wrestling with. I have an Asus N15 WiFi card and has a Realtek rtl8188ce chipset. I have a cable connection that is capable of 20 Mbps. The card will run at that speed and ramdomly throttle down to 2 Mbps. A restart is required to reset it.
As a random thought, I have PCI Modems, PCI NIC, AGP cards and a PCI-E Wireless card for the taking. It’s not a lot but if anyone is out in the west valley wants to pick them up. I don’t have any computers I would use these parts on and they might benefit someone else. Send me a email if you wish me to hold them until you can pick them up.
Back to what I was saying. Nautilus tends to create an internal error and the application requires a restart. It’s not a deal breaker, just annoying. That is my news and hope to see all of you on the 9th
