    Very true. I don't know why but I've always stuck with gt or dynos. I've got a performer as well, an air, and a compe but those aren't going anywhere. I purchased all of them new, they just sit around. If I'm going for a ride I usually ride an old haro I won years ago. The others are too nice to ride much. My preformer is Crome. I just noticed that the seat stem is different on the nitro compared to the other 3. Why is that?

    I like every OS I've ever used better than XP, but Ubuntu was the slowest thing I've ever seen. I just used the Wubi installer. Maybe I was supposed to configure it better after I booted it?

    There's gotta be an issue with Ubuntu once you have it installed. It's gnome and it's slower than xfce or kde but should still put windows to shame speed wise.

    The only error I got was it failing to perform mode 0600 on a passwd file. It said "Shadow passwords enabled" too.

    Do you think it failed to hardware accelerate graphics?

    It could have. What graphics card you using? Nvidia Has always had the better drivers for Linux. The 0600 is just a failed chmod probably due to permission issues. The shadow passwd is just saying that when you enter your password it won't appear just stay blank and not move spaces either. Try kubuntu see if that one works better it's the same as Ubuntu without the gnome bs and comes with kde instead.

    I'll try Kubuntu.

    I knew the 0600 was chmod.

    If you know where it failed to chmod you could do it manually. You can also verbose boot it into a CLI to find out what's going wrong. dmesg will help you discover problems as well. Just run a

    dmesg | cat >> ~/dmesg.txt

    Or a

    dmesg | less

    Lol John King said "Apple Computer."

    "Load fallback graphic devices" failed in verbose mode. I haven't gotten off the black screen with just the cursor on it and it's been a few minutes.

    I booted it into the demo mode and I'm running the installer. I hope I didn't uninstall Windows

    Million dollar question: did you partition your drive at all?

    If y'all resized the NTFS to where it owerwrote data, or just wiped it; you're boned. Otherwise you should be fine.

    EDIT: We'll be seeing the A5 JB here very soon. http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/1616...y-ready-to-pop

    I give up on any 'buntus for a while (I couldn't get it to install, I didn't delete Winderz.)

    It got stuck on waiting to reboot on one part. I manually rebooted after 10 minutes and it picked up from there.
