Feisty Install

Feisty?

you should add "i don't give a rats ass" option! lol

Gotta go fresh...

After trying for two weeks to get Sam Linux 2007 to boot on my old IBM Thinkpad i1452, I'm giving up. I'm going to install Fiesty Fawn fresh and wipe out my old Vector install. I've never been able to get the sound to work anyways. Edgy Eft was the only distro that worked on this dinosaur, sound and everything. So I don't anticipate any problems with Fiesty Fawn. I wanted to branch out with other distros, but I guess it'll have to be with more forgiving hardware. Right now I just want everything to work, and in the end that's more important that a little geek cred.

No news on bug report

I've still heard nothing about the bug that stopped me installing an earlier version, so why would I try another? Anyway, I'm too old for all the excitement (and sudo). :puzzled:

re: Poll

Sorry, did I miss the memo where Hell froze over?

I'm happy with what I get from PLOS/SAM-Linux

I've tried and managed to install xyz-buntu Linux numerous times and no installation would last for more than one week or so. The same thing with (more attractive) Mint-Linux and
(not so promissing) Ultimate-Ubuntu.
It would be really long list of problems and annoyances I had on my machines with Ubuntu distributions if I had to make one.
PSLinuxOS and Sam-Linux are only two distributions I simply had no issues with at all. Right now I'm running Sam Linux LiveCD on my Compaq Armada V300 laptop ( Celeron 466 MHz with 320 Mb SDRAM and Lyksys PCMCIA wireless card) and I'm tempted to wipe out WinXP and run it exclusively on this oldie.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
