HP Mini 210

New member to the fleet, it's a HP netbook

It's running Windows 7 Starter Edition, with only 1G RAM, it's really pretty slow.

After setting it up I then killed the Vista that came with this Toshiba M600 and installed Ubuntu 10.04 in it. The usual steps after installing ubuntu are (1) software update (2) install flash (3) install Chrome browser (4) install Java. However Java 6 have been removed from the Multiverse section of the Ubuntu archive, so I had to use terminal to do this.

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner" sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre

The above didn't finish well in terminal I had to run Update Manager to complete the configuration of Java 6.
