Again no photo related post, but I think it worth mentioning. As I recently upgraded my hardware to a AMD64 X2, had to reinstall Ubuntu (a 64 bit edition) (by the way, since then I have no splash screen during boot (my monitor just goes sleep). Does anybody know a solution?).
I wanted to visit some java web-sites, and realized that I have no java jre. No problem, I will install it! But that’s not that easy, as sun-java6-plugins does not come in a 64bit version (as far as i know Flash player does not come either). Googling for a solution I have found this article on the Ubuntu docs. The easiest way to solve the problem is to ignore it :-), and install a 32 bit Firefox, with all the plugins. Not a smart way to get rid of the problem, but works well.
