Netbooks / Firefox 14 and 15 work on Linpus
« on: September 26, 2012, 03:45:39 pm »
Now that I've tried this, I couldn't find a thread where the information was directly pertinent, so I thought I'd start a new thread, in case the information is of use to anyone.

To be clear, I have tried going from Firefox 4 straight to 14 and then 15, via Firefox's own update mechanism.  I know there were problems with Firefox => 8 on Linpus, so somewhere between 8 and 14, they fixed something which Linpus is happy with.

I hope this helps someone, personally, it's no use to me as I just ditched Linpus for Lubuntu 12.04 LTS, where nobody is surprised that Firefox 15 works out of the box ;)

Cheers,

Matt.

Netbooks / Acer Aspire One (110L) 16GB SSD - Which File System?
« on: September 13, 2012, 08:45:13 am »
I have done some searches and can't find any mention of this so the question is, regardless of which Distro you choose to replace old Linpus on your AOA110L, either with 8 or 16GB SSD, what file system are people using/choosing/recommending?

I get the impression from the HowTo Peppermint install threads, is that people are choosing the deafult which probably means EXT4?  Is there not an issue with using a Journaled File System on these old SSDs, which presumably is why Linpus uses EXT2 and not EXT3 which was available at the time?

Obviously, the noatime mount mods and the /tmp to RAM will help, but I like my old AOA and wouldn't want to kill the SSD due to making the wrong choice, when I finally get round to replacing Linpus.

Are people also setting up Peppermint/Bohdi/Lubuntu with enoguh swap so that Hibernate can be used, also? (one reason I want to ditch Linpus, is I really could do with Hibernate).

Thoughts? Anyone?

Cheers,

Matt.
