I have a Toshiba SS 1610 from 2004-ish. I picked it up for about $300 three years ago and it is still going strong. It's an exceptional piece of hardware. It was a little slow, but about two years ago I swapped out its hard drive with an SSD and now it runs like a dream. The only thing is, it won't run any Ubuntu system past 9.10. And my wireless adapter won't run on 9.04. So if I want to keep wireless (which is a necessity for me), I'm stuck with 9.10.
The only thing is, I did a reinstall of the OS recently, and all of my software sources are now gone. So I can't install much, if anything. I can't even install Gnome Do.
I know 9.10 isn't a long-term support release, but is there any way for me to maintain this machine? Even downloading .deb files (2009 versions, say, of Opera), I'm running into unsatisfiable dependencies and can't install a lot of things that way.
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
