A blog worth looking at

Posted in community with tags , on December 12, 2008 by jb

I see the role of this blog as a report of my own experiences rather than a ‘howto’. I have not reported much on this blog recently because i’m happy with my Ubuntu setup; I decided not to use the latest Kernel and still use 2.6.77-7. At the present time the effort of tweaking to improve things further does not seem to be worth the effort since things are working well. I’m still a bit disappointed about the lack of quality documentation for the NC10…

Just thought I should draw reader attention to this blog:

[this] blog is about writeups, not news and updates. For that reason this page will always be the front page and will be kept up to date with a beginning-to-end writeup of how to set up the NC10 for Ubuntu 8.10 and Fedora 10.

Seems like a nice approach to take (but I’m not interested in authoring howto guides)


Updated Forum

Jon Bradbury has made some changes to the forum layout in an attempt to improve usability / utility. I would like to thank him for helping me out.

It would be great if issues could be discussed in the forum before they are added as workarounds / tricks / tweaks on the NC10 Ubuntu help page. It is essential that the information on this page is accurate and avoids speculative ideas that should be tried out by the community before being proposed as solutions.

Blog clean-up and new information on the Wiki

Posted in community with tags , on December 2, 2008 by jb

I have made some edits to the posts on this blog in an attempt to clarify some issues for new users. If anything confusing remains then please let me know.

The Wiki page at has quite a lot of new information on it. Some of the proposed workarounds on the Wiki have not been discussed on this blog or in the forum – We need to ensure that the information on this page is accurate, so can people confirm that these workarounds actually work?

This blog now has a forum that can be found at:

New users can post questions and hopefully somebody will help them out.

Regular readers of this blog can contribute by reporting new issues with the use of Ubuntu on the NC10. In addition, opinions on what should go on the community NC10 Ubuntu help page (and who should write it! hint hint) are encouraged.

Even if you have nothing to say yet please register.

I think that we (the NC10 user community) now know enough to start writing a page for new users that contains information that is critical to getting Ubuntu working on the NC10. I have generated a very simple template that needs to be populated. So please visit:

To facilitate the population of the NC10 page I have setup a fledgling forum at:
