sis67x driver for Ubuntu 10.04

Well as promised, I have uploaded the latest sis671 driver for Ubuntu 10.04.

This driver has been modified to support 1360x768 on ASUS X5DC.  xorg.conf file needs the option "ASUSX5DC" to force the screen size.

upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04

well it's been awhile since I last posted on my blog (sorry been really busy!). 

Anyway,  this is just a quick post to let you all know that I have upgraded my os to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS over the weekend (it was a complete disaster - but more on that later!)

I just wanted people to know that I will be posting a new sis671 driver, that will work on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid) later this week!

converting wubi to dedicated linux partition

Over last weekend, I decided that I wanted to ditch Windows 7 in favour of linux. But, I didn't really want to re-install from scratch and I had previously installed Ubuntu in the windows partition using wubi.
Although it did get a bit hairy for a while (at one point I was unable to boot into the Wubi or the dedicated partition). So, I decided I should share the experience I had and hopefully help others avoid the problems I had.

Configuring Mobile Broadband E160 Modem in KDE

Configuring E160 Modem on Ubuntu 9.10 was fairly straight forward, but there are a couple of gotchas.

Upside down webcam

Suffering from upside down Webcam?

Well your not the only one. It appears that its a common problem!

Some manufacturers mount the webcam upside down...In Windows the software detects the problem and flips the image automatically. Linux handles the problem differently. Most (but not all) Linux software that makes use of the webcam via a a collection of userspace libraries called libv4l.
