My Move To Ubuntu 9.10

posted Nov 9, 2009, 7:46 PM by Tom Gutwin
I had a spare partition on my drive so... I installed Ubuntu 9.10.
It went very smoothly.
Everything works. I didn't have to play around with anything.
  • nouveau video booted after install (unlike F12 beta)
  • NVIDIA 190.42 compiled well
  • sound was all alive
  • Composite is working
The only things I ran into were configuration things that I was not used to,
  • upstart init config to be able to boot to run level 3
  • setting a root password
  • setting my uid to be the same number as my home partition that got created with F11.
    • I had to set it to UID=500 which now does not show up in the Gnome login greeter. (not a biggie)
    • It also now doesn't show in some Gnome dropdowns for configuring things.
All in all I like it.
