I have made some posts about the Compaq CQ61 with Nvidia G103M graphics card and how to speed things up and get the screen working. On Ubuntu 10.04 another problem have been bugging me for a long time – overheating! Time to post a solution.
Ubuntu 10.10 is soon to be released. What's your opinion? Does it still rock, will it kick Windows out the office door (again!), or is it getting more "Window-ish" with bugs and features going hand in hand?

The Ubuntu community is used to the fact that every new version of Ubuntu is improved. With Ubuntu 10.04, I noticed that application startup time have increased. Time to solve that problem..
It's here. And I made a fresh install. Read on..

After attaching the camera (EOS 400) and starting the download photos dialog, DigiKam crashes with a "segmentation fault 11".

Update: Seems like theres no logic in what settings you have, but if you go to the preferences and do some "check" and "uncheck", it seems like DigiKam gets a little more stable.
