I'm a *recovering* hardcore geek.
I bought my eee (partly) because it's the first machine I've ever seen that I could buy off
the shelf, retail, and have *everything* 'just work' (on Linux) without having to reinstall or
tweak a thing.
I'd never have run Xandros in a fit before, but having paid for it, I saw no particular reason
to change -- as long as it wasn't broken. I now realise it always was.
For the moment (until such time as I feel a geekish urge to build Gentoo on it, for instance),
I've disabled Samba. I might upgrade the package if I find I need to use it.
I had to comment out the lines that start the daemon in usr/sbin/services.sh; removing the
rc.d entries doesn't work.
