Special key assignmentsview story

http://forums.opensuse.org – :)I want to assign two "unused except by winblows" keys to functions. As an example, I want the "eject" function on my Dell Studio 17 laptop to issue an eject command. I assume this will require a bash script. The keycodes for the two buttons are 170 and 133 according to xev. (Distributions)

[ubuntu] [Karmic] Randomly lost my 1680x1050 resolution after switching NVidia to ATIview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – A few weeks back my NVidia card committed suicide. I was using onboard graphics for a bit, but it was painful for Compiz. Upgraded to an ATI card about a week back and had no problems until my computer randomly freaked out in the middle of usage (literally was just watching a video when this happened) and kicked me from 1680x1050 to 1600x1200.

[ubuntu] AMD mobile CPU problemsview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've been running Ubuntu 9.10 on my AMD turion X2 mobile laptop for a while. It has always run hot, but worked fine. Lately, however, it overheats and battery life is low. I've looked around for a solution, and it seems to be a problem with cpu frequency scaling on AMD mobile machines in ubuntu. I've tried messing around with powernow modules, but nothing seems to work. (Hardware)
