LXer: Disappointed in Ubuntu 8.04 ... and fixing the ailing iBook G4

Published at LXer:

Ilene's iBook G4 is dying. So I've set her up with the $0 Laptop, which the kid already uses to play her educational games (GCompris and Childsplay). After using Linux for nearly a year and a half, and overcoming many dozen obstacles, bugs and the like, I was very unhappy to find one problem specific to Ubuntu and another that might be a hardware issue ... or a Linux-wide, soul-crushing situation (but most likely is a hardware issue plaguing this specific laptop).
