Re: [PLUG] Sprint mobile wireless device + Ubuntu

*Tons* of it. Whole screen of white on black text. Lots of stuff about
USB disconnect. Too much to type out, and I obviously can't do a
screen cap on a frozen system.

Nope- plug it in, and it is instantly recognized as a CDMA device. If
anything, it's easier to get it running on linux than it is on Win.

No dice either way. Ctrl-alt-del, though, *does* force a reboot.
