Tuxicity's source

Ubuntu, Toshiba laptop, and forced distro switch to Sidux due to USB bug.

Filed under: Debian, Sidux, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 9:39 am

Our Toshiba pro L100 laptop ran perfectly on Dapper Drake, and upgrading to Edgy went fine too…..

Then we upgraded to Feisty Fawn and the USB ports broke down after a few minutes of usage, every time, sometimes after 10 minutes, sometimes after one minute.

I decided to report the bug, and noticed it was reported before, so I added a comment here and here.

I switched to Sidux, a distribution based on Debian Unstable (Sid).

With some help from Sidux people on IRC and the Sidux manual page and my own bit of know how I had Sidux installed and set up in just an hour, and I must say:

Sidux is a great distro for intermediate experienced Linux Users and honestly, its twice as fast as Ubuntu.


Sidux is still under development, and first stable release is expected in a few weeks, as you can read in the release notes of Sidux 2007-02 preview1.
