Bye Fedora, Hello Ubuntu

I had Fedora 9 on this Acer laptop. I was pissed off about various things like the restriction of gstreamer plugins I could install. Also, there wasn’t a way that I could find to get static DNS servers. So last night I installed Ubuntu 8.10 over Fedora 9.

I’ve had no problems so far. Installing wireless was one click. Same for flash.

So I’m going to continue setting that machine up.

This is the 60th post on OKS Blog 🙂

8.10 slowness

You may have noticed that Ubuntu 8.10 includes a persistent LiveUSB creator on the LiveCD. This is very convenient, as the old method of doing it was complicated, and the LiveUSB creator doesn’t require partitioning either. However, 8.10 running of a USB drive is extremely slow.
