Inspiron Mini 10v running Lucid (10.04) Netbook issue
I have Lucid 10.04 running very well on a Mini 10v. It installs straight out of the box, and works very well. There has been a slight problem in that a forced disk check on boot up was carried out far too frequently and sometimes caused the boot to freeze at around 71%. This has been reported as a known issue on the Ubuntu forums (fora?) and the workaround seems to be to include GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="noapic" in /etc/default/grub In order to make this edit take effect, you need to do sudo update-grub to make the change appear in /boot/grub/grub.cfg
I am still waiting to see if the problem is cured, but any or all of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="noapic, nolapic, noacpi" are other possibilities to try.
