Linux on Toshiba A215 AMD Turion 64 X2

This is just a preliminary post.. more to come soon.

First of all: how to properly boot!

If you search in google about how to boot motherboards with recently (or not so recently) AMD 64 procesors you will find that everybody says use "acpi=off noapic" in your boot options but.. that will leave you whitout all the goodies of acpi (suspend, cpu freq, battery status, multimedia buttons, etc...), but after a lot of digg i found some kernel-list thread that address this issue:

In short, there is a problem with the local acpi timer with a lot of motherboards with AMD 64, so just add "nolapic_timer" to your boot options, and of course remove "acpi=off" and "noapic", and you will boot a linux with acpi and acpi enabled :)

"noacpi" works fine but "nolapic_timer" don't seem to work for me Toshiba A215.

I tested this camera for a client. I didn’t have the light running for more than 15 minutes. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours before recharging. The LCD, however, had a few dead pixels - never saw this before. Tried returning for exchange and had to put up quite a fight. Anyone else seen this? laptop battery
Verizon is about the only place you can get the authentic RIM product and matching door. Most other sites are out of stock and even when they are in stock they have the black battery door which looks like crap. new battery

Personalizando sfWidgetFormJQueryDate

Llevo 3 semanas trabajando en un proyecto con symfony, a pesar de que existe bastante documentacion acerca del framework es muy facil perderse entre toda la informacion y si le agregamos las distintas versiones de symfony, los 2 tipos de ORM (propel/doctrine) las diferentes maneras de hacer las cosas segun que tan bien hayas definido tus modelos, pues encontrar como hacer algo especifico suele ser bastante tedioso, asi que conforme avance en mi proyecto ire poniendo uno que otro tip de como pude resolver los problemas que me encontre...
