Reinstalled GRUB 2 to the MBR

Posted 05-17-2010 at 10:04 AM by ddalley

I'm not sure what happened to make LinuxMint 8 stop working the way it did, but I finally got both installs working again by reinstalling GRUB 2.

Pretty scary stuff to just turn on the computer one morning and not have an OS.

GNOME Shell vs. the Terminal

Posted 05-16-2010 at 12:32 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

Partitions:

90 or so GB for OSX
23GB for Linux
40GB for Windows

Not a lot of options for a 160GB drive anymore. I might purchase a bigger hard drive later, of course I will also need the proper tools to open the mac up. I saw how it is done.

One of the problems I ran...

Moving ubuntu minimize, maximize, & close buttons on Ubuntu 10.04

Posted 05-15-2010 at 10:04 AM by jkzfixme

As I drink my scotch after a long day of golfing I ponder life's great philosophical questions, such as the direction that Linux is heading, and if the wife is going to yell at me for that new scotch stain on the couch. Are we men, or are we mac users ? I mean seriously, whats with the buttons on the left ? Is it some insidious plot to ruin my optimistic attitude in life, like the KFC Double Down ? Is it a new direction that Ubuntu is going if it has already been trodden down by turtleneck wearing...
