I was trying to install linux and it is done 🙂
The guide proposed was a little outdated and not everything worked as smooth as possible but the information there was of big help. (Madman, thx again, great work)
To explain a little, the main problem was setting the NVidia video card in the Alienware M14X to, actually, work; after my first installation try the problem was I could not see anything because the NVidia card did not worked; to fix this the procedure I followed was:
- Install linux (ubuntu) with the power cord unpluged (so the NVidia card is not used)
- Update the ubuntu kernel
linux-headers*-all.deb linux-headers*generic*-<yourarchitecture>.deb linux-image*-<yourarchitecture>.deb
sudo dpkg -i <linux-headers all file> <linux-headers generic file> <linux-image file>
- Install Bumblebee
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mj-casalogic/bumblebee sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bumblebee
Configuring bumblebee select “Mario Höllein” or “MadmanMT” profile configuration
- Configure the USB
I just saw the first episode of Curiosity: Did God create the universe?, very nice episode. I love to see scientist saying things that are uncomfortable and outside of the box, people have relegated science to just explain things outside of religion, but this is a nice example how science can answer big questions and that we will have to adapt our beliefs with reality.
I recommend to watch it to everybody, its an amazing show
The episode does gives a simple answer to the question it ask, Did God create the universe? Well… simply, No.
