Thanks Ian, I did that. And I figured out the updated part before I read it.

Do I get my own Penguin now? I checked under my car and everything!

I really *REALLY* need more RAM on this box. Next I think I'll try to get this bluetooth dongle to work and find a dvd ripper so I can copy dvds to the box.

I have installed OS's of various natures before and will do it again. Tomorrow probably, as a matter of fact, since I picked up a consulting job for a BioMedical research company who needs a little, edgy, almost super-geek to help them out. If I see anything glowing I'll let you know!

True, but it wasn't all that long ago that getting even a supported wifi card running under Linux was a pain in the ass, and getting an unsupported card running was damn near impossible.

I think I'll leave the GUI off of apt for awhile. I want to learn more about doing things from the command line. If I know wtf the commands MEAN, it's a lot easier for me. Repitition helps, too. Like knowing that "sudo" means "superuser do" will help me remember what it's for and why I need to use it. I don't do well with rote memorization.

Yea pretty amazing. ndis-wrapper used to be an absolute last-resort that maybe sometimes worked.

Gratz again, girthta. I'm actually pretty excited for you.

When is the new RAM coming in, anyway?

Haven't ordered it yet *frown*. I've been busy with other things...

girthta, I believe you're missing the wireless tools.

you can do apt-cache search wireless to get the right package name, 

and then do sudo apt-get install for them.

Actually, I got it to work but thanks. It's just a little different getting to the same tools in ubuntu than in *shiver* that other OS.

I have some consulting work to do today but will otherwise try to order that RAM. Before I do that I can't do much else as it seems youtube and everything else still chokes considerably. Even interwebs radio through rythmbox is having issues.

The dongle on my bluetooth keyboard/mouse was recognized, though. The scrollwheel on the mouse doesn't work but I saw a fix for that in the ubie forums. I'll fix that when I have time, too.

Would be nice if my husband truly appreciated the high geekery we have now sitting nonchalently in our living room.

If your husband *doesn't* appreciate it, but just enjoys the results, it's far more awesome.

When non-geeks are not even aware of the elegance and power behind what is going on, you have a true work of art.

As I've been saying for many years, good engineering is whatever gets the job done without calling attention to itself.

Heh. From planning to implementation to considering a second machine, in a matter of days.

Someone ought to tell Harry about this :)

What does this mean and how do I fix it?

rar command (for vobsub compression)

This is in dvd::rip settings. I dunno what "rar" means???

OK, here's the thing. I want to rip DVDs and I'm having a seriously hard time figuring it all out. I just want to copy a dvd to another dvd so when I put the copy in the computer it will act just like the native dvd. Is that asking too much???

Does anyone know how, in plain enflich I can do that? I have k9copy and DVD::rip but I'm just missing something here...
