[ubuntu] Macbook Pro - dead hard drive + new SSD = miseryview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm sorry if this specific problem has been addressed here already, but I couldn't find it. Here's the problem in a nutshell: My wife's Macbook Pro's hard drive failed and I decided to replace it with a SSD. Since our OSX DVD is MIA, and, as an Ubuntu user, I decided to at least try Ubuntu first before buying a new copy of Lion ($30 is cheap, but free is much better). (Hardware)

[kubuntu] KDE freezes after login (11.10, 64-bit)view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, This has been a problem for a while now, but it has deteriorated to the point where I can't ignore it any longer. When I log on to KDE the desktop would show but the system would hang for about 2 minutes. I can move the cursor and even open programs through shortcuts, but the screen does not refresh. I suspect it has something to do with the video driver. (Hardware)

[ubuntu] stereo separation issues, intel audio controllerview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am using Ubuntu 11.10 on an Advent 8111 laptop. The only problem I have is with the audio device which is an 'Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)'. The nature of the problem is that there seems to be an issue with the L & R stereo separation, almost as if there is some kind of signal cross-bleed between the two channels. (Hardware)
