    Jolicloud on Acer Aspire One netbook slow internet


    I just loaded Jolicloud on my Acer Aspire One netbook, and the wireless internet is running slowly. I read the getting started thread, but I don't really understand it. How do you get to a terminal on Jolicloud? Theres really not much info on Jolicloud anywhere. So far I really like it. All I do on my netbook is web browsing, itunes, and the occasional office doc. Thanks,


    Clint

    I've not used JoliCloud, so my help will be limited.
    But I did find this page with some keyboard shortcuts.
    Looks like you might be able to get a terminal by pressing Alt + F1.

    When you mention the getting started thread, do you mean this page? If so, could you please get the output for the remaining commands?

    I think I'm gonna leave it be. This netbook isn't long for this world. The screens got a short. It'll be fine, and then the screen will spazz out and you have to almost close it for it to recover. I want to find a laptop, about a 15" that I can load with Linux. On ebay I've seen refurbished laptops for cheap advertised with no OS. Would it be wise to get one of these?

    I don't see any reason why not.
    And for some reference, Acer, Lenovo and Toshiba all have wonderful hardware support for most modern Linux distros.

    Ebay has been the source of many a laptop for me and my wife. You will find that a lot hardware a few years old, that the original owner thought was no good due to windows glitching. Wipe the drive, or the original owner will, and install linux. You'll be amazed at how fast and nimble linux can be on these machines. If the general public ever discovers our secret, we won't get near as many good deals anymore.

    Yeah this netbook is awesome now with Jolicloud. I took it apart today and cleaned the plug for the screen cable. Now theres no screen issues. I still think I want to find a regular laptop, I found one local that I think will work well.
