    Servers are really bogged down right now... The final was just put on the servers about 4hrs ago. Use the torrents to download the ISO's... They're going pretty strong at the moment.

    Installing software, etc.. is going to be VERY slow after you get installed, as I said, the servers are getting hammered. If that bothers you, hold off 3-4 days, and things should settle down to normal.

    Enjoy.. :)

    Now the wait for Maverick Meerkat begins. :supergrin:

    Toolchain should be up in a week or so.

    Started with the beta 2 and kept up with updates. 22 seconds to boot and about 4 to 5 seconds to shut down. The only bugs that haven't been corrected by me, are sometimes when shutting down, machine will go to a login screen. Wont restart or shutdown unless I press and hold the power button. The other is an error probing SMB2, but with the boot and shut down times cant complain. I like it so far.

    I've been running the beta since the heads-up it was out.

    It's worked great !

    It's had a jillion updates, so I probably won't change it out for the released version....:supergrin:

    I haven't used ubuntu for about a year. I made the mistake of updating versions and it broke my video ATI video drivers horribly and I lost motivation :(

    Eventually I'll get a new Ubuntu machine up and running.

    That problem, seems specific to a couple of chipsets. I know there's a bug report on it, but honestly, I've not experienced it on any of my machines. I know there's some people, it happens all the time.

    What error w/ SMB2?... Never really used it, but I've not saw much mentioned about it.

    aircarver -- If you've been keeping your machine up to date, you should be current, and there's no need to reinstall... run sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade . If those install any kernel upgrades, when its done, run sudo update-grub and let it do its thing.

    Once that is done, you should be up to date and with the current version.

    Reboot then run:
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    Look for packages that are installed as dependency of an already uninstalled package and removes them.

    sudo apt-get autoclean
    removes all stored archives in your cache for packages that can not be downloaded anymore (thus packages that are no longer in the repo or that have a newer version in the repo).

    Upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10 this morning and set up my Ubuntu One account. I haven't benchmarked the startup times but all is well so far. Now I just have to upgrade my wife's laptop and all three of my kids' laptops.

    We've been a Linux family for quite awhile now; I became very weary of constantly removing malware from the family's laptops. Now, if someone could perfect iTunes running under Wine my kids wouldn't ever have to boot into Windows again.

    You could probably find a way to get around that, if they are only using it to sync Ipods. Vbox is an awesome and powerful thing. All I use it for is syncing Zunes and Ipods..

    Had installed everything suggested by the k-package manager.
    First one, nothing necessary.
    Second, one package (Kopete) replaced.
    No kernal upgrades, not run.

    Four kernal headers removed.

    About two pages of 'junk' tossed.

    Thank You Gentlemen :thumbsup:

    Netbook booted up by CD, looks good. Web browsing seems snappier than what I remember from 9.10.

    Looks like I need to make time to partition install this on my Netbook. :thumbsup:

    You could try Banshee instead of Rhythmbox for syncing. Ive heard it does a pretty good job. I think Banshee might be default from 10.10 too.

    Depends on the iPod really. Some iPods, work really well under Linux(mostly older ones). Others, don't work so well(Touch, Classic, etc.).

    It can be overcome quite easily. My Nano that I use at the Gym took a dump on me, and I got a great deal on a refurbished 8gig Zune. I love my 80gig Zune, but there is no hope on either of these ever working w/ Linux for the forseeable future. Running XP as a virtual OS solved this perfectly, and works equally well w/ the iPods in my experience.

    I Love Ubuntu but could never get it to work wireless on my laptop. So I had to revert back to the Vista crap.
