The simple solutions are often the best!
A DNS problem was obviously not causing your problem :)

Daryna - pigin 2.2.1 -unable to connect

I have browsed the pidgin problems but as none of them mention version 2.2.1, I cannot tell what is relevant. the FAQS in the pidgin dev site do not help. Simply I cannot connect to MSN which when I was running Celena I could. I ran Celena for about 6 months in lieu of windoze - I love it. I just am...

support for INTEL GMA 3000 RESOLVED

Hi, I have accquired a 946PL7MA-1.1 foxconn MB with Intel Duo processor - sounds great huh? BUT the board has an onboard graphics intel GMA 3000 - I hear linux support for this is poor - Mint 4.0 is up-to-date - so how much support for this graphics option is there - do i need supplementary drivers?...

Great beta

I had the dreaded WHITE screen when trying to use Beryl - nvidia card and GEFORCE graphics card - but the ENVY fix and installation of the new driver worked a treat.

Waiting for 3.1 proper now. I want to relegate my windoze to back seat and enjoy Linux at last!

Great Distro Clem.

Now I have a switch on my PSU and I turned that off too. So I will try this soluti...
