Last time! What laptop/netbook?view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – This is the last time I post a topic like this, I swear :DSo, my mom just bought an Asus Transformer Pad TF300T. For me, this was a nice time to check out whether or not I'd get a nice tablet to fill the gap between the heavy laptop and my phone. Whilst it's fun, it's not something for me. (HowTos)

How to Solve Wirelesss router issues vs. ISP issuesview story

http://askubuntu.com – So I've been having a lot of issues with my internet connection since installing 12.04. This is happening on both of my laptops that run this version. My mac has no issues although I did just notice one page that took a while to load. Which brings me to the question. What tools should I get and how would I go about testing whether the issue is at the wireless or the actual internet. (HowTos)

Case: I at work have an unrestricted internet line, I can't connect a wireless router but I could share my internet via the wireless of my laptop (ad-hoc). (HowTos)

http://askubuntu.com – The brightness keys on my laptop are not recognized by Ubuntu, which is a common problem for a variety of laptops, is there a way to set an arbitrary key shortcut to change brightness in Ubuntu 12.04?

libva g45-h264 branch & hardware acceleration in fedora 17 (lenovo x200, x200 tablet)view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – This post should be relevant to those who run fedora on G45 4500MHD chip computers & especially for laptops because software video decoding makes awful battery life. I am trying to make g45-h264 branch of the libva and intel-driver and haven't found prebuilt packages for fedora - the ones on atrpms are without the patches. (HowTos)

Might be the end of the lineview story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – for my Toshiba Satellite A205-S4577. Bought her new in 2007 and paid something in the neighborhood of $1000. Alas, tonight she doesn't want to power up. By that I mean when I plugged in the power adapter there was no blue light on the front indicating that it is indeed plugged in. Oh well, she had been acting a bit odd over the last few months. Take it apart and see what I can see? I dunno. (HowTos)
