End of my rope with installs... - Page 3

I'm not going to get to involved in the OMG Linux doesn't support new hardware debate but I have a Intel 7260 802.11 AC with BT 4 and it was good to go as soon as I installed it..

I'm a bit lost on where the thread went but I'm guessing people figured I was complaining about drivers. The card worked. Sometimes for hours, sometimes for 10 minutes between going down. Drivers weren't the problem. I'm guessing a hardware defect of some kind as it is widely reported problem with this laptop. Solved by a number of people on google by changing the wifi card. I really don't know and can only guess at the root of the issue though.

Minor update however I am currently on Ubuntu and will stay with it for awhile. Have no complaints. Today a new Intel 6235 Centrino with Bluetooth 4.0 came in the UPS and I swapped it out in less than 5 minutes. Rock solid all day. Not one single disconnect from the lan ( my redneck internet not withstanding ). And now I own a retail copy of Windows 8.1 Pro which I can repurpose to someone, who I don't know but retail so I can get a few bucks for it at least.

I have tasted the freedom that linux offers, I cannot go back to that nonsense anymore. I am going to try a debian testing netinstall sometime in the near future. I don't agree with Canononical very much but I see the merit in Unity as much as many may not.

*EDIT* Nonsense referring to Internet Explorer crashing on me a couple times + a few other things. Probably biggest issue was the removal of cleartype or whatever they did that makes older applications blurry as hell. Definitely not worth 200 bucks.

*EDIT 2* I have just found that my new wireless card is recognized by Debian enough to tell me which driver to download and put on a flash drive to use for installation. Goin Debian testing later tonight. Everything is looking up.

I embrace all OS's, tech and everything you can imagine. It's why I'm using AMD. I want to see x86 evolve not stagnate. The metamorphic potential of x86 is massive and under a compnay with the right intentions even more so. Let's hope Intel can dream more than die shrinks and slap on co-processors. SoC seems huge!

Awesome! Regarding AMD, I bought stock in that company just before Y2K when I read that AMD had hired away a bunch of the DEC Alpha boys. I did well with that stock because first they brought out the Athlon and then just trashed Intel with Athlon 64. So I believe in "putting my money where my mouth is" too, though I do play both sides of that fence. Frankly, though, I was hoping for a little more development along the lines of RISC than has transpired, but x86, while as you say has great potential, it also has great inertia and it's hard to force deep changes. Hopefully, they step up their game again with something as potent as AMD64 was.

BTW if the photo in your avatar is your wife or girlfriend it's a wonder you ever get near a computer. If it is you, then I am doubly impressed. thumb.gif

My exact agreement. HSA brings X86 into a whole new realm of computing.

That's my girlfriend she's all the way on the other side of the world. We just clicked one day talking and never unclicked. So almost a year of online dating we're doing our most to save up to meet in both our nations. She's my Avatar because I think about her all the time, I put her before me and she puts me before herself. We're strange that way.

FWIW AMD recently announced HSA for Linux.
