Many Gentoo users tend to have more than one pc at home: say one or more desktops, a few laptops, other laptops, and some older, slower laptops, or netbooks, or whatever.
I just convinced two users to switch to Ubuntu for their older laptops but something is not right with the networking. His computer can see hers but she cannot see him and they are on the same wireless home router. They are both on workgroup and I am using Samba to set up the sharing but when clicking the browse network I can only see her laptop from his and not vise versa.
It says here that these laptops are certified by Ubuntu. It says that these laptops are certified. Particularly I am looking at the laptops with hybrid graphics, but how sure am I that these laptops will run well under Ubuntu? Is the driver pre-installed?
Me, I'm a Geek by profession and have been in the *nix world for many, many moons. I cut my teeth on HPUX and Solaris and have been running Linux exclusivity on my Home/Work Desktops and Laptops for around 6 years now. The only Windows I run is in VMWare for testing purposes only, that and I run some games when I get the itch.
All my items are from a non-smoking/pet-free household and are in good working condition unless noted. I accept Amazon Payments, Amazon Gift Cards or money orders. I am open to offers made via pm, and will consider trades. Heat is under rainman748.
I've got some older laptops I need to get rid of. These have been tested and have a clean OS install.
