Fedora 15 LXDE on a Dell Mini 10v -- nice!

Filed under

Software

My 10v is a modest, capable little machine even if it does run too hot. Linux Mint LXDE convinced me that LXDE is the way I want my Linux on the 10v. But LM 9 LXDE had problems with sound and wireless on this netbook.

Fedora 15 LXDE does everything right. The sound works out of the box. The wireless does not, but Fedora told me that the firmware was missing, and the instructions for the Broadcom driver were easy to find in Fedoraland. LM 9 LXDE left me to struggle with forum searches and I never did get my 10v's wireless to work.

  • Regulation can fix security, except you can't regulate security
    Every time I start a discussion about how we can solve some of our security problems it seems like the topics of professional organizations and regulation are where things end up. I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
