Acer Aspire 4330 Drivers

Acer Aspire drivers should not be difficult to find in the net. But I just want to give these links to you to make your life a lot easier. Scan through this links if you will find the drivers that you need, and hopefully it will because I downloaded my drivers from these sites too.

Just a note, please read this very carefully.

In installing Vista or XP, please note that some of the drivers may vary if you have installed Vista in comparison to XP. I really don't know why is it like that exactly, but I think it is in the difference of the their OS environment. So be sure to check first what kind of Operating System did you installed.

So here are the useful links that you may want to check.

Intel Drivers - If your Acer Aspire have Intel Chipsets

Atheros - For your wireless LAN if you are using Atheros for your wireless connection.

Review For Dell Poweredge 2450 server 2U With Ubuntu

Dell Poweredge 2450 server 2U(no I'm not kidding)

CPU: 2 - PIII, 1 Mhz, 256K cache
MB: Dell 35XYT, Dell PERC 3/Di: SCSI-3 Raid controller, 3-64/32bit PCI riser, onbaord VGA 8MB/2x USB/LAN/2x PS2/2x serial/1 par.
Memory: 1GB, ECC (2 x 512MB), 133 Mhz
HD: 4 x 9.1GB SCSI-UW2 in raid0=36GB(sys), 1 x 250GB IDE (seagate), 1 x 320GB ext USB (seagate)
Tuner Card: 1 x Happauge PVR 150 PCI, 1 x Kworld HD Plus 120 PCI(doesn't work, yet)

Performance: All hardware functioning except the Kworld card.
Once I got Ubuntu/Myth installed and setup backend(a couple of hurdles, although nothing linux/ubuntu related.)everything works great on OTA NTSC programming using the PVR 150. However, I'm still working on getting the HD plus 120 working - would like go "HD" w/ myth. Obviously, I'll have to upgrade my frontends to support "HD", but was hoping my current backend could handle it. I'm confident that I could run 2 more NTSC encoding tuners without problems. I did try an external USB drive set up as my default recording folder and the recordings turned out choppy w/ dropped frames - now its backups only.

Frontend: Salvaged Sony VAIO

CPU: PIII, 933 Mhz, 256k L2.
MB: ASUS(sony branded) CUSL-LV w/ snd, lan,2x USB
Memory: 512MB (2x 256B)
HD: 40 GB IDE, 80 GB IDE (windows XP)
Video: nVidia MX400, 64MB
Tuner Card: none

Performance: All hardware works except an ATI TV wonder USB wireless remote.
Playback/liveTV is fine till I open another window like firefox browser, then it will drop a few frames here and there. I use this interface more for managing recordings than viewing, so its really not an issue. The ATI remote wasn't a priority - I just had it lying around and thought why not. I think it'll work eventually.

Frontend 2: Softmodded Xbox

Info: Other than dashboard/software, everthing else is original Xbox

Performance: XBMC works great, but...........
Softmodded and installed XBMC no problems. Unable to install myth or get the mythtv python script to work on XBMC (tried many methods many times). However, Video playback is exceptional - Hardware MPEG2 decoder?
One other small glitch I've noticed is when exiting a video, sometimes it takes about 30-45 sec to return to the folder and it appears empty. I then have to go back one folder and return to see my recordings - not sure if this is backend storage issue or xbox config.

Review for Pidgin

Pidgin is a messenger client that is readily installed if you are using Ubuntu 8.04. It is a great tool for chatting. The interface is very simple and easy to use. You can use it for your AIM, YM, Google Messenger, MSN, etc. All you have to do is integrate your account with this very simple software.

However, Pidgin is not in its outstanding form. I think if you are an internet marketer, you should think twice if you are going to use pidgin or some other applications that are alike.

There is no webcam video system. To Pidgin developers, we are no longer living in a world of analog computers. Our cellphones even have cams. Using 3G in cellphones was adopted around 4 years ago, and now you developed a very potential tool for Linux OS without developing the webcam and audio system. This makes the potential users to turn their backs on this “supposed to be” wonderful software.

In my personal point of view, webcams and audio phones are badly needed by internet users and how much more by an internet marketer. One of the reasons why Linux was a little behind for internet marketers is that most of the tools that they need cannot be found in Linux, like ebook cover maker, video and audio conferencing tools. I think Linux developers need to develop these things to make Linux a little more attractive.

I would say that Ubuntu is really a great operating system. But due to the lack of interactive softwares or unfinished software projects makes it a little hard to be adopted by many internet users.

If you are a Linux software developer, please, make something that is more useful and more interactive that can be used easily by internet users. If you can do this, then I would say, Linux is on its way to overtake Microsoft in its window based systems.
