Re: Firefox replaced by "Inbox.com"

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE stuck at kernal_thread_helper

I think I have encountered something similar - thread-related calls, combined with errors for acpi-related calls - turned out to be a faulty system ram stick. first off, hardware issues should be eliminated as a possible cause - reboot into memtest86+, and let it run. Reply back if you get errors or...

Re: TV or Video Games!?

with nothing but the two? it's a coin toss, really. I'd probably be doing either one with them, so it really doesn't matter - I'll choose Video games, even though it's with the only Microsoft product I own - an Xbox 360. :mrgreen:

Re: XBMC and Desktop Effects How to make them play nice

go ahead and turn them off - both the desktop effects engine and XBMC use OpenGL for hardware rendering. The memory that is alloted to on-board graphics is paltry compared to what comes on a graphics card, and both of these programs are probably using every bit of it, as well as some of the renderin...
