yea the main site is taking a battering. it might be useful for people to include the torrent links in their sigs. im at work so aren't downloading right now, but i suspect even if i wanted to it would be a nightmare to find the torrent links due to ubuntu.com being so slow

Still its really really silly that:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

has a bit torrent link at the bottom which takes me to:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#bt

AND THERE ARE NO 9.04 TORRENTS THERE!!! wouldve been nice of them to update the page, because torrents should be given priority. its this "sharing is caring" attitude that makes us better than those windows loving pirates :)

anyways, for now we can get our torrents from http://releases.ubuntu.com/jaunty/ but i hope they fix the main torrent download page soon for all the noobs! :)

Kool thing. I'll wait a few days before I upgrade.

I (technically) performed a clean install.

It helps to have your / and /home directories on different partitions, basically you need to manually remove all the configuration files/directories from ~, then you need to run the installer, let it format the / partition but don't let it format the /home partition. You will get a clean install system and still keep all of your personal files.

It's a bit more work than really necessary, but it works, a lot better than the normal upgrade-and-keep-all-your-personal-files method, which will almost always break something.

I've been running the Beta for the past little while and it looks like I got my final few upgrades this morning. I'm glad I have the final release now but it kind of takes the fun out of new release day. :) I'll be doing fresh installs on both of my machines soon anyway. I want to re-partition my hard drive on one machine and I want to do an install with the ext4 file system on my 'test' machine.

you sure you're not limiting the "number of connections" per torrent or the total (this only applies if youre downloading something else too) ?
what torrent client are you using?

Anyone have a torrent file link? The official page only shows ver 8.

http://releases.ubuntu.com/releases/9.04/

The torrent files are listed. I have been running since the beta, as far as I understand it, as I run the update-manager, it has been updating me to the 9.04 release version. I got over 300 megs of downloaded updates the other day, and the last thing I think it did was update Firefox. Now I am doing the alt-F2 update-manager -d thing with my notebook. It popped right up that a distribution upgrade was available. It stated it was the Release Candidate version,, but with my previous postive experiences upgrading the beta, I am unconcerned, as I am sure the RC probably is the final version, and if not will be after running update manager again later on tonight or tomorrow. The servers were getting hit pretty hard, so I downloaded the torrent from the link I gave you above. Note the file dates. The torrent file is the 4/23 version, at least for the standard .iso file 99% of the people download. I have a Dell Mini-9 Netbook with the 8.04LTS version that came with it from Dell. Has anyone done an upgrade to the UNR version, and wants to share their experiences? For netbook users, are you aware of the htp://www.ubuntumini.com website?
http://www.ubuntumini.com/ has a lot of good information, even if you are using a standard notebook. I have an old Dell B130, and everything works great on it, ever since 8.04. That is what I am upgrading right now!

Downloading via BitTorrent at around 250kb/s with 36 mins left - which is pretty much the maximum my line will support.

Of course, I'm already on Jaunty (have been since February), but I'd love to do a clean install with ext4, and see how it handles others PCs in the house (especially an Ubuntu-hating laptop). I use this as a measure of how well hardware compatibility has improved since last time.

I will continue to seed as well. My DSL isn't the fastest out here in Amish country though, but at least we finally got it a couple of months ago. Before that I had to struggle with Hughes.net satellite!
I am back, after the reboot, everything working perfectly, turned the volume up was all I had to do! My home directory was untouched, Avant still works, as does Ubuntu Tweak, and Compiz Fusion settings for the pretty cube are unchanged. I really have to hand it to the Ubuntu team, this is the smoothest upgrade I have ever done with any version of Linux, and I have been playing with Linux for over 10 years now. Only regret is never learning how to program. I haven't had to compile a program from source in a long time now... I don't know if that is a good or bad thing though :)

Ooh, just realized I've used suspend about 6 times over the last few days and it hasn't stumbled yet. Afraid to use hibernate as it will probably break the trend, although I was pleased to see that working (with some occasional failures) a while back. Even had nice "waking up" information in usplash.

That end of things, at least for me, has vastly improved.

On one of my machines, I sometimes have to click the "check" button to get it to recognize that there are updates/upgrades available (an upgrade is in progress on that machine as I type). Beyond that I'm not sure what to suggest.

Good luck to everybody checking out their options for upgrading.... may everything go smoothly.

Wouldn't it be great if the distribution upgrade tool were to (optionally) use BitTorrent instead of the direct download? I started the upgrade at noon and it's creeping along at 50kb/sec .. only 64% done after almost 6 hours :(

That depends on your client, but it's usually just a checkbox in the preferences somewhere (in kTorrent it' Configure>BitTorrent> Use protocol encryption)

to me, it's like putting a fresh coat of paint on an old house, instead of living in a new one.

I'm going for a full install (once I'm done backing up all the /home files onto the server) because I keep adding different applications that I don't use anymore and don't want it hanging around.

Plus this clears up any leftover files from applications I've removed.

If I don't install too much crap in the next 6 months then maybe I'll be able to just do an upgrade next time around! ;)

My desktop, though, is running 7.10 and likewise has a boatload of crap but first I have to find out if the nVidia drivers are as screwed up as they are for 8.10 I've been testing (when I have any desktop effects turned on, OpenOffice does not display any text.. not in the dialog boxes, the menu or anything.. just text. Turn off effects and everything is fine.)

After looking through the very condensed options page for transmission, I'm guessing it uses encryption by default and you cannot turn it off.

As for the torrent file, just right click one of the links to the torrent file people have posted earlier and click "Save Link As..." That should give you the actual torrent file. :)

I've begun testing it on the other PCs around the house, here's my results so far (bear in mind this is from the live CD)...

Family Desktop (2003) - Intel P4 3.0 ghz, 512MB RAM, Radeon 9200 - The experience was good before, but because ATi now uses EXA rendering, it's very, very snappy indeed. Wired networking works out of the box, as expected. Everything else does, too. 5/5.

Old laptop 1 (2002) - AMD ~1.6ghz, 256MB RAM, unknown graphics - Amazingly responsive for a machine with such low RAM and from 2002. The wireless lights up but there are no networks visible. This is the only negative - but impressive nontheless. 4/5

3 PCs to go, but an impressive start! I'll post more later when I've tested them.

Downloading via BitTorrent at around 250kb/s with 36 mins left - which is pretty much the maximum my line will support.

Of course, I'm already on Jaunty (have been since February), but I'd love to do a clean install with ext4, and see how it handles others PCs in the house (especially an Ubuntu-hating laptop). I use this as a measure of how well hardware compatibility has improved since last time.


downloading from server at 60kb which is great, cause I can't expect more with my line. Would go with torrent but they're capped during the day. Strange that the iso is my 100th torrent on transmission :p
Should take me 3 hours though :(

Have you tried enabling encryption?

Explain this then

I clearly mentioned that I use transmission but this guy suggested enabling encryption. How the hell do I do that if it's on by default and you can't turn it off.

I would like to make a few comments that touch some queries made that I do not think have been answered.

After testing on several type of equipment - yes a clean install always performs better.

Several of the mainstream torrent sites are already carrying the "final" version of 9.04.

Be ware, the file size is 698.6... not 714.2.... for the i386 32bit. The 714.2 is the RC pre-release version.

I'm bad - downloading at 9.0kb/s:confused:

Now I have a question?? Has the printing feature improved??

Good news! You can use bittorrent technology to upgrade Ubuntu. see this guide:

Use BitTorrent to Upgrade to Ubuntu ‘Intrepid Ibex’ (http://torrentfreak.com/use-bittorrent-to-upgrade-to-ubuntu-intrepid-ibex-081029/)

The guide is intended for upgrading to Intrepid, but it should be able to use for upgrading to Jaunty (9.04).
Just follow the instructions carefully, and make sure that you change the release name.

apt-p2p? how awesome is that? i'm too far in downloading packages directly now, but i'm definitely going to use it for the next upgrade. thanks!

I actually thought Id try updating for once, but now I know better.
First I started the upgrade from CDrom, which DL some additional stuff, when everything was done DL I closed Rhythmbox and a few other Apps and the Upgrade Windows vanished aswell (it dint even had a Button to close it, so I couldnt accidently click it) without any message, breaking some package-depencies along the way.

Now I fixed the depencies and wanted to upgrade via System-Upgrade... guess what its hanging for minutes and I cant even cancel it. If servers are loaded its one thing, but not responding to input or displaying anything is another.,,,

Im off for the bi-annual Linux reinstallation... seems to be way faster than the other options.

I downloaded both the Live and alternate CD's (64-bit) from torrents about 3 hours ago. I was getting blazing speeds. Each one averaged around 800kb/s and were hitting 1.5mb/s regularily. It took minutes to download.

I did this at work, I have my laptop with me and was connected to their network so I didn't seed them. I'm going to though when I get home. Share the love! :)

Thank you wolfen69

I came here to ask why the .torrent links were giving me the direct ISO file.

I am so glad someone got a .torrent out. I am only 5 minutes in and already reaching speeds of 661 kB/s

On an unrelated note. I understand that .torrents are not always faster for EVERY country. But why can't they be an OPTION in the Update Manager. I know I would turn it on in a heartbeat.

Wow this release is damn amazing, for the first time everything just works, unbelievable!

Boot speed is amazing, first time I seen my Trust tablet work without any fiddling. Compiz setting don't conflict with the other GUI configuration. This is definately the best linux experience I have ever seen, and I've tried pretty much all the other top distros.
I can't even believe i'm saying this but it's surpassed Winblows!

This is an amazing bit of history.

Thanks Ubuntu Team! and all involved in making this possible ofcourse.

I had a few issues when upgrading with the betas and RC.
Since I always have a fresh backup image of 8.10, I restored that and tried the upgrade again with Final Release via the alternate disk.

disk drives, Compiz. It all went off without a hitch.

This is an active thread. Some information cannot be repeated too many times (on the first day of the release) ;)

I'll have to search through this thread when I finally get JJ downloaded but at least I have a location to look (if I don't copy the link now, but that's logical).

I'm unable to obtain the Xubuntu torrent file because the server is getting hammered. Should the torrent files be on a separate server to avoid this problem?

Yes, at first.

My guess is that since the download is so fast, it takes a while for the client to relay the information that I have more to share. Don't worry. Almost 4 hours later, I'm still seeding at 300kb/s.

It isn't about being cool. It's being able to keep up with the new software versions.

Right now i've burned a jaunty CD, and want to upgrade using the CD (and internet for everything else that's not the CD). It just hangs when I try to download the upgrader tool though

For the last 4 releases, on the release day I ritually set aside disk space from my otherwise Arch and Debian - dominated HDD, and install Ubuntu, expecting, at the very least, a GNU/Linux nirvana and ascension to a higher plane of Free Software, at least based on what the regular users have to say about the betas and release candidates. According to the logs, it's been 137 days since the last time I've booted into 8.10 before today, when I booted into it again to upgrade. Equally unimpressed, I have a strong feeling that this post will be repeated on the day of the next release. The network manager is a joke, the default gnome theme still closely resembles the colour of vomit it induces, and my Arch install has been booting faster than this alleged "optimisation-oriented" release for years.

Suffice it to say, I've apparently placed my expectations for Jaunty way above the bar. Perhaps I should've spent less time reading fan forums and blogs and more time actually testing it.

The ATI proprietry installer thingy didn't work, but the official driver installed like a charm! In fact unlike my recent Ubuntu experiences, I've been up and running in no time.... and I'm loving it! Well Done the Ubuntu Team!!!

The question is really about whether you want to switch to the new ext4 filesystem (that's the chief advantage I think) and whether you can do that while keeping your /home partition intact. I'm not sure if you can do that.

My /home partition is ext3, the rest is ext4. No problems here.

Well, I could change all of my settings fairly quickly, but it's just I don't know how I would go about changing to the new ext4 filesystem. I know I have the update arrow that says I can upgrade. Is that all I do?

I don't think that would change your /home to ext4. I went for the reformat option off a Live CD install.

Here's what I'm wondering. Is there any way to make the entire repos into torrents and people can seed them? Torrents are great if you want the Live CD and a clean install, but many (most?) of us upgrade an existing installation. p2p sharing of the packages in the repos would take a load off the servers.

At least make the packages in the base ubuntu-desktop install into torrents. Does this seem feasible at all?

Yup, it's possible (http://www.camrdale.org/apt-p2p/) but I haven't tried it. And I don't think I will this time, since I'm not sure yet if I'll have hardware issues. But that's not yet my problem: right now, my .iso torrent won't start. Transmission says "Tracker hasn't responded yet. Retrying..." The port's open, I've used it before, and my ISP is not known to be evil. Any ideas?

How come I downloaded from the official source, burned into a DVD and when I did a fresh install it installed Ubuntu 8.10?

it would be tricky business because not everyone gets the same updates. what control system is in place to route what updates to who? i don't think it is as cut and dry as you make it seem.

That would do fine. You should probably burn the cd's at a slow speed. Apparently that decreases the chance of errors. I haven't 'upgraded' yet. After migrating all my machines every 6 months Breezy->Dapper->Edgy->Fiesty->Gutsy->Hardy->Intrepid the novelty has kind of worn off. Is upgrading 100% of packages really necessary every 6 months?

My other problem is that even if I upgrade to Jaunty most the programs on there will already be 3 months behind the latest version. I want the programs that I use updated regularly, not the whole system!

obviously we see things different, and that's OK. i actually like installing OS's and configuring. and i might add, i'm damn good at it. i challenge anyone in the world (given the same computer as my opponent) to configure (as in drivers, codecs, tweaks) an ubuntu machine faster or more completely than me. i can do it in my sleep.

Actually, Ubuntu's PPA system is a nice way of addressing that. Users/Upstream devs with an particular interest in an app would form their own repos you can follow to the latest versions while keeping everything else the same.

This is especially the case with end user apps, even Debian Sid doesn't came has updated as some PPAs.

Everything just seems to run more smoothly and a little more intuitively than before.

I am now seeding both Kubuntu and Ubuntu desktop x86 isos. There are now so many seeders, that it seems as if I am being kept out of the uploading!:)

Anyways, I'm also downloading/seeding the Ubuntu DVD, I have uploaded 1.1 GB and downloaded 750 MB. Here, this is my only Jaunty complaint so far, the "leachers" heavily outnumber the "seeders, " but that is only because it is a large file and not many have completed the download yet.

I plan to keep on seeding until at least tomorrow; depending on the Upload to Download ratio, I will plan to install Jaunty either tomorrow or Saturday. Luckily, I don't have school tomorrow. It's as though they planned a holiday just for Jaunty's release.:popcorn:

So, next up is version 9.10, Karmic Koala, if I'm correct? I think that this time around I might have a go at the beta program.

I think that it's fantastic.

It it the only version that upgrade -d worked with. Most things worked out of the box.

The only issues that I've found are:

Metacity lost window decorations (yes, Metacity). However enabling metacity compositing from gconf fixed that.

The only other thing is that the version of OpenOffice has a tendency to make the gnome panel disappear - it's there, it works to click on it... but it makes it invisible - I suspect that it is another metacity issue, but haven't done any bughunts about it yet.

My Xubuntu 8.04 worked like a charm on this one so let's try 9.04... :)

you're gonna need more than 128 ram to run jaunty. or maybe i misunderstood you.

It's understandable that at the very first boot up, it will be very dragging, but once I strip it down to wallpaper + rightclick menu, no panels, no nothing, minimal xfwm, kill all background (non-essential) programs...well, lets just hope for the best. :)

that sounds like an xfce install i had. i did a minimal install. i'm thinking of going back to it. when you know what you're doing, it's nice.

The new notification display is soooo annoying and there is the obvious Intel video regressions. I honestly don't feel like fixing or trying to fix the display issues so I might just reinstall 8.10. The installer seems buggy as well since it would crash on creating a vfat partition on this drive.

Jaunty seems to be another lifeless sleeper, only the notifications seem any worth but really it doesnt seem to be a worthwhile release...
Also all the regressions, I mean why couldnt they be patched before such a critical release?
Makes me want to ditch Ubuntu entirely for something with a little more kick like Mandriva.

Honestly for me it feels like the Gutsy release all over again except wifi works out of the box this time. I didn't expect this release to bring significant changes to Ubuntu and I don't expect the next three releases to do the same either.

I love it so far, boot time is incredible, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 is averaging at about a 15 second boot time or less (I haven't actually used bootchart yet to get the exact number, but i'm sure it's a lot less than 15 seconds).

I for one love the new notification style, It integrates nicely with pidgin and everything else and doesn't look out of place like the old ones used to.

Overall, this is my favorite release so far.

Many incremantal improvements to the Gnome desktop have greatly enhanced my ubuntu experience.
* Middle mouse scroll in compact view
* better spacing in compact view
* Automatic installation of missing codecs
* bunch of others that i noticed and forgot...;)

I guess that is the point, functionality that you expect to be there is simply there. imagine my shock when i tried to middle mouse scroll in compact view in Intrepid and saw no mp3's scrolling by....but the Gnome team always gets the job done..and they have again.

Fast
Touchpad on laptop is much smoother (I heard they were working on that)
Browsing seems quicker on the laptop, not sure whether I'm just imagining that or not
OpenOffice 3 :)
Gstreamer can handle DVD menus much better :D

Not major changes all round but polished enough for me.

Only issue I've had is that I've had to put a workaround in to get the panels to start at login. No idea why... they were working yesterday after install.

i am totally new to ubuntu and i am already upgrading.. fail......

So I am correct in assuming that the Upgrade police just kicked down your door and forced 9.04 on to your machine.......

You have the CHOICE to upgrade every 4th and 10th month, usually. post smart.

First impression....

Ubuntu Splash is Tiny
Boot time about the same.

2nd impression

Evolution still gets " Error while expunging folder" error.
Hate the email notification when there's no new email arrived
Google Earth still bombs out on initialisation
Gotta recompile VirtualBox again <-- always have to do that anyway.
Too early to test whether sound still glitches whilst scrolling in the browser

Otherwise.... Whats all the fuss about ?

[edit]

Flash is borked

Dislikes:
I wish the splash bar uses the same colours as the Ubuntu logo.
Default GDM theme
Non working human circle GDM theme (it's a confirmed bug, and a patch has been submitted. What's the hold up?)
Notification popups are for notification only. They don't link to the event.

Likes:
Visuals of notification popups
Default themes that are unique to Ubuntu.
Feels faster.

OMG!! AUDACITY WORKS!!!!

I have tried to do multi-track recording on several computers with dozens of distros, and NEVER have managed to get Audacity to work properly. It's all but reduced me to tears. Now it's working on Jaunty which I'm testing on a spare hard drive. I wasn't going to update to Jaunty, but this alone may be enough to push me over the line.

However, I've yet to install the restricted codecs. I won't be surprised if this kills it somehow. Wish me luck.

I'm still running 8.04 (Hardy) on my laptop; I'm probably going to install 9.04 on it soon. I've tested the Live CD on my laptop and everything is good except for one issue (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/275998). Except the microphone issue, it looks like it works better out-of-the-box than Ubuntu 8.10 on my XPS M1530. For previous Ubuntu releases I needed a fix to make the touchpad work, that's not necessary anymore with 9.04.

I want to install Jaunty so that I have the newest versions of OpenOffice, Stellarium, Java (especially Sun Java 6 update 13 is important to me, I run the 64-bit version and there's finally a 64-bit browser plug-in included) and other software.

On my Dell Mini 9 netbook I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-netbook), which is now an official version besides the desktop and server versions of Ubuntu. :)

I like it a lot, it runs really well on my Mini 9 and the application launcher and other adaptations to make it more useable on a small screen are really good. And it boots really fast, 20 seconds from the GRUB menu to the login prompt!

In general, I'm really digging it.

Pro:
The new Xorg is letting me run at full-speed with Compiz, which I've never been able to do before.
Boot time is fantasticically small.
The general presentation is much better than any release prior. Hardy and Intrepid's wallpapers were... pretty horrible, honestly. No more ugly dotted lines around buttons thanks to the new Murrine. The community themes are great. The GDM and notifications look fantastic (**** the haterz).

Con:
Still won't play with my Atheros AR242x wireless
Not really Ubuntu's fault, but not having a working fglrx is a bit lousy. The free driver does the job, though.

The torrent is finished. I'm going to backup some files, burn the .iso to a CD and install.

You know what I'd like to see? I'd like to see alpha-blur work correctly in Compiz with my Intel card. But that's not going to happen. :(

If there's anyone using Jaunty with an integrated Intel X3100 graphics chip, does the final release work okay for you? I.e. is the performance okay and does Compiz work? What about setting the brightness of your display?

When I tried the beta, I had loads of problems with these... :(

Been using Linux for 10 years now (but not Ubuntu, my machine was too new for Ubuntu to work on it back when I tried).
Because I have experience with downloading, I know how to run md5sum, I know why to run md5sum, I know when to run md5sum.

What is the correct md5sum for the 9.04 netbook remix img file?

Why not put md5sum data on the download page, as many other distros do? Just seems silly to tell us that we need to calculate the md5sum, but then not tell us on the same page what the correct md5sum result should be. At least put a link to the correct md5sum on the download page

I'm thinking that may nudge more people to actually calculate the md5sum of their downloaded files.

Finished configuring just then. Bootup is incredible with Jaunty and Ext4. Seriously, if you're going to use Jaunty, use Ext4. 9.04 is all about speed and the cutting edge (well, as cutting edge as a non-vanilla distro can be). Default wallpaper sucks. :P

Awaiting Karmic with high hopes. Watch out, OSX.

Okay! It's installed now. The first thing I noticed was a slight increase in speed and decreased RAM usage. Right now I have Firefox 3.0.9 running, along with Synaptic (I'm installing Firefox 3.5b4pre), and my RAM usage is sitting at 279.6MB.

Then again, I haven't installed Emerald yet and I haven't configured Compiz fully. I'm guessing once that happens, RAM usage will increase to what I was seeing in Intrepid.

I do like the new notification system. I have only seen it once, but it is a lot nicer looking then the previous notification system. After I get things fully set up, I'm going to see if there is any themeability there.

What I don't like so far:
- The new splash screen
- The new GDM theme

I'm going to have to make some custom ones, I guess. Other than that, I haven't noticed any other problems.

I'm using EXT4 and it is the fastest ever as well. Booting is very fast and opening apps is incredibly fast as well. For me, best release ever.

Upgraded from 8.10 and switched to ext4 and everything is running fine. Seems smoother than Intrepid. Major thing I've noticed is sound, I can now get more volume than I could before, no longer need to turn everything up full. My screen resolution seems better now as well, subpixel rendering works properly now and fonts look a lot clearer.

For me,
It seems to offer very little extra above the previous release.

Maybe that's a good sign that it's maturing.
However overall, it wasn't worth the effort in upgrading.
