LIP 10: Ubuntu Drake is Dapper

Posted in Live-cd, Ubuntu, Wireless, X at 3:30 am by serge

Second round with trying to install off the livecd results in success, eventually. (If only our neighbors with the free wireless access point would turn the thing on for show time!!)

On our third try (1 for Edgy, 2 for Dapper), wireless gets nailed down and the install goes off pretty smoothly. Great hardware detection in the installer gets us sound, wireless and X mojo flowing.

We also transition to a Linux based setup for producing the podcast, so there might be a few bumps as we get it all dialed in. If you can read this, well, at least we got over a few of those bumps.

    Great podcast. It’s always interesting hearing about other people’s experiences with first-time Linux distro installs (I assume first-time). I haven’t used an Ubuntu or SUSE distro in well over a year, so I’m curious about the results. Is Mepis going to get a spin?

    Thanks for the kind words on the show. SimplyMepis is sitting on a live cd in my pile so it is likely to get a spin in the not too distant future.
