Hello all,

I am encountering serious problems trying to use my computer.
I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D 7830 laptop (P4 2.4GHz, 500 Mo RAM, Ati Radeon 9600) running Ubuntu Dapper.
I have used Ubuntu (5.4 and 6.6) for six months now and never had any serious problem. All my hardware is properly supported.

I messed up my sound drivers (or something related) when cleaning up a couple of packages.

Seems like I was wrong. Now the sound doesn't work and the sound icon in the upper-right corner shows there's no sound. When I click that icon it says that I'm either without GStreamer plugin or sound driver. I'm not sure which, but I guess GStreamer.

There are two main things I want to know about the new Dapper Drake release.

  • If I don't enable XGL, is it still very slow on an 800Mhz with 256MB RAM? That's all I have right now, unfortunately.
