New toy

Purchased a new Toshiba Satellite M110/J00 notebook. Gotta love 24 months interest free finance!

Now I am installing Ubuntu – the plan is to dual boot with XP, but I will lose XP if it gives me grief.

The first hitch – the wireless “kill switch” must be off. That is wireless enabled. If the kill switch is on, a cpu soft lock occurs. This is a documented bug.

Most everything worked right out of the box, not that I’ve tested Bluetooth or the fingerprint scanner yet.
