Après avoir publié ce billet sur mon installation de Linux Mint 12 sur mon Asus K53E, je suis passé à la version 64 bits pour voir si ça vaut la peine (http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/ubuntu_64bits)

Je n'ai pas fait de grands tests, seulement quelques-uns en lien avec le traitement vidéo.

Pour la même job, je gagne avec la 64 bits:

I have an old motherboard that requires creating a DOS boot floppy in order to upgrade its BIOS. Fortunately, it's not too hard to do this with FreeDOS and a USB stick.

The instructions below are based on an FDos wiki article.

Downloading the dependenciesThe first step is to download the required files from your motherboard manufacturer:

We just landed a href=https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/4.98-2ubuntu2bluez 4.98-2ubuntu2/a in Precise. The key change was to enable the Source and Gateway profiles by default, which will now allow people to use their system as an audio output device. It works great on Android, but any help in testing this on a bunch of different devices (especially on iPhone) would be much appreciated!br /br /The Source profile is what enables the A2DP bluetooth profile.

Etherpad is an excellent Open Source web application for collaborative text editing. Like Google Docs, it allows you to share documents with others through a secret URL or to set up private documents for which people need a login.
It's a little tricky to install so here's how I did it.

Enabling IPv6 Privacy Addresses

At the last UDS, we once again discussed the state of IPv6 support in Ubuntu. We're in the process of making Ubuntu really rock with IPv6, and this comes with decisions and hard work.br /br /One of these decisions was to enable IPv6 Privacy Extensions by default. In other words, rather than having an IPv6 address that is derived directly from your network device's MAC address, you'll now have that, but supplemented with time-based temporary addresses, randomly created, used to establish outgoing connections to systems.
