I just installed an Ubuntu yesterday and I am very enthousiasted about it!
Unfortunately I understand my laptop is not among the best for linux, but I cannot afford changing it for now
It is a Toshiba L40.
The biggest problem I have is turning my fkin sound card on.
I just installed the 4Front OSS sound driver and it seemed I had the best success with it - typing "osstest" in console made my speakers arise from the grave !!
Sadly, this was all. The default volume control now does not work. Nothing else actually produces any sound.
Thanks in advance to anyone who offers any assistance.
"ubuntu?! I am going to learn ... ubuntu?!"
