IPv6 Certification Badge for Cas Mollien

Ubuntu Installation on the ASRock ION 330
My installation notes, from experience and external resources...

This article describes my notes for setting up CrunchBang Linux, a full Ubuntu Linux distribution with an alternative interface (OpenBox). Everything written down below should be equally applicable on Ubuntu itself.

Add the nVidia PPA to install the latest VDPAU drivers,
'sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list' and add the following:

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

Now, add the key to the keychain:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys CEC06767

Add the Medibuntu repos for any missing codecs (optional):
sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

And add the key to the keyring, the Medibuntu way:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Update and upgrade:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Install the nVidia drivers:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-190 nvidia-190-libvdpau

As ROOT, run the following commands to finish the nVidia configuration:
/etc/init.d/gdm stop # kills your X session
rmmod nvidia # may fail
modprobe nvidia
echo nvidia >>/etc/modules
sudo nvidia-xconfig --dynamic-twinview --randr-rotation --twinview #To run a dual monitor setup
/etc/init.d/gdm start

Install smbfs if you want to connect to CIFS (Samba) shares (optional):
sudo apt-get install smbfs

Modify /etc/samba/smb.conf:
workgroup = MYDOMAIN

Add mountpoints:
sudo mkdir /media/MP3
sudo mkdir /media/Software
sudo mkdir /media/Downloads

Mount drives in fstab (sudo vi /etc/fstab):
///MP3 /media/MP3 cifs credentials=/full/path/to/.smbpasswd,rw,uid= 0 0
///Software /media/Software cifs credentials=/full/path/to/.smbpasswd,rw,uid= 0 0
///Downloads /media/Downloads cifs credentials=/full/path/to/.smbpasswd,rw,uid= 0 0

Fix the shutdown problem that persists at least up till 9.04, where networking is turned off before CIFS is unmounted:
sudo mv /etc/rc0.d/ /etc/rc0.d/
sudo mv /etc/rc6.d/ /etc/rc6.d/

To get the MX5000 bluetooth desktop to work:
Install bluez-compat
sudo vi /etc/default/bluetooth
Add the following lines:
HIDD_OPTIONS="-i hci0 --connect 00:07:61:6f:4b:32 --connect 00:07:61:6f:d7:3a --master --server"

press red button and run:
sudo hidd -s

Install some additional programs:
tilda bbkeys rdesktop preload wmctrl

Install Firefox plugins:

Performance tweaking:
run a grub 'profile' at next startup
remove 'quiet' from /boot/grub/menu.lst to show scrolling text
DO NOT USE THIS ON ION 330: /etc/init.d/rc -> CONCURRENCY=shell
install sysv-rc-conf and turn off unwanted/unneeded services.

So far, this has given me a stable and fast machine. If you have any additions or suggestions, shoot me a line!
