Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha-3 on trial
ISO image available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/lucid/alpha-3/
It's now a week in and its all running sweetly.
Got the new look, themes, branding. Improved software centre has a habit of giving me a crash report whether it has crashed or not (??).
So far, very impressed. And it's only an Alpha...
- Downloaded the Lucid Alpha 3 ISO image,
- Burned to CD using Brasero
- Put it in the old Pentium 4 in the home-built plastic box with the spaghetti hanging out the back
- Ran install
- Ran update manager
Everything works out of the box;
- Nvidia Ge-Force 440mx on the restricted drivers
- Both sound cards - Intel in-board and the Creative Labs Sound Blaster
- Wireless network dongle - Belkin 5770
Wednesday ran update manager and automatically got the new themes for Light - Ambience and Radiance. The samples didn't convince, but on screen... yes.
