Hi guys, I thought its about time to create a post for people like me that cant wait to see version 10.04 final :lolflag: Its two more days :guitar: Grabbing :popcorn: and waiting it out in here :P Any one interested in joining me here hahahhahaha Yeah I've became real Ubuntu fan what can I say.

http://countdown.immanuel-peratoner.de/

My Ubuntu System Specs:
-- Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
-- 4GB DDR2 Memory & 250GB Hard Drive
-- GeForce 9400 GT, PCI-E 16x, 1024 MB, 550 MHz
-- ViewSonic VX2025wm 20.1" LCD + DELL E173FP 17" LCD

Some Ubuntu 10.04 RC issues that I've noticed. I used upgrade not clean install, so that may be why I get this issues. In any case I hope this all will be fixed in final release.

#1. When I use TwinView with two LCDs and watching dvd in VLC, when video moves from side to side I see my VLC picture cut most of the time. I haven't found any solution for this yet. I used to be able to use Xinerama in version 9.10 final and this eliminated this issue. But I could not use any of compiz effects. I prefer to use TwinView instead, this way I have all effects. This is not that big of a deal. But it should work better. Now using one display works perfectly fine, its that when I use this two LCD that when I get this issue. I don't know if its because I'm using two different LCD displays or if its video card drivers problem.

#2. Sometimes upon boot I get my WD 640GB HDD not mounted for some reason. I need to reboot again for it to work. This is the newer model of WD HDD. I have no idea what is up with that. It works perfectly fine.

#3. Applying wallpaper for two LCDs, I used to be able to stretch wallpaper between two LCDs. Now I see same wallpaper on two LCDs. Stretch don't work properly. Span works but that not what I need.

#4. Keep Align Icons not saving upon reboot.

will update this post ones I found more issues ;)

Hi there,

I use twin view and have no issues with playback. This is using a clean install of 10.04 amd64.

Also for your background, go into the background settings page and change it from centre to span :)

Hi Paul, I think that because I used upgrade insted of clean install too. At least I hope this is why I have this issue :) As for using span, I am using it now but its not as good as stretch for some wallpapers :-) Also I've noticed that Zoom has exactly same issue as Stretch LOL In fact every other option has same effect, like its mirroring the wallpaper.

Yes this is true. Since I've upgraded from version 9.10 to 10.04 RC, I have issues with my video. So I'm hoping upon final release, clean install this will fix my bugs. Crossing my fingers :P

--edit--
By the way, this is the first time i'll install a new version while i'm using Ubuntu. I used it for the first time on 8.04, but i wasn't a regular user because i needed Windows to do work stuff. Flash, Photoshop, etc...i tried using those on Wine,but the performance wasn't good enough. Now i'm into another career path (programming), and i don't need Windows anymore, so i'm all Ubuntu now, and for the first time i'll get a new version while it's still fresh.

If you have multiple computers, then running ubuntu and windows in parallel not a problem ;-D I use some of the programs on windows too, but not as much anymore. Programming is good. I'm leanring PHP5 and MySQL5 my self right now ;-) I suggest you wait till final release instead of upgrading to RC. Unless you want to upgrade to report bugs like me ;)

I have 9.1 installed along side Windows. Not sure if I'll do an update or clean. The thing is I don't know how to do a clean install. For me the update may be fine as I haven't really messed with 9.1 much. If I do clean I've got to redue my network etc but I'd like to know how in case. can you help?
Thanks

The reason why your video is cutting:

This problem occures when the video plays at a higher framerate than the monitor's refresh rate. This is called vertical sync.

This problem is known with VLC, and I hope in the future they include an option to ENABLE vertical sync when playing videos.

best Ubuntu yet, but unfortunately this is like the 6th ubuntu I have been looking forward to fix nagging bugs and still no dice. hibernate is an effin' mess on Ubuntu, and this whole Plymouth thing (albeit the fact that it's not much Ubuntu's fault for ATI and Nvidia's closedness) is a shame since the majority of people just won't see the "karmic" way of booting their system...

I checked my RC liveusb and it showed 200mb of updates. Although I think 1/2 of that was for openoffice.

So there definitely were quite a few updates after RC.

I'm guessing there will be lots of updates within the first week after release as well.

If you're going to hammer the ftp sites to get early etc, make sure to use torrents so the mirrors don't slow down.

No they are not the final release. That won't happen until late tomorrow.

What does Daily Build mean? I guess thats what im trying to understand here. Is this different from RC?

mihai007
April 28th, 2010, 05:23 PM
daily build means the current version of the day (today), the rc is actualy the daily build on dayX such as final release which would be the last daily build.

Every day we get a daily build. it' like a version release every day for testing,etc.

lesliefrancis
April 28th, 2010, 05:28 PM
Oh Thank you Mihai007. Now I understand the difference. Well I have been testing Ubuntu 10.4 since its alpha stage I hope they haven't changed much from their RC release :) but I am just getting restless for to download the final release. Hope I'll be able to control my emotions till then :)

If you have the RC installed and it is fully up to date there is no reason to reinstall.

RC + updates = Final Release.

The reason why I am waiting for final release is due to the fact RC is taking a lot of time to boot to desktop compare to 9.10 version. Secondly if i have the desktop effects enabled,once I move the windows I get some while lines on the window border as they are moved.

I was hoping that this issue doesn't occur in final release.

I don't even need a backup. I'll just wipe the partition and do it all over again!

I am not able to install 10.04 RC on my desktop as it comes up with some error however the same disc works fine on my laptop. So what i did was I installed 9.10 and then upgraded to 10.04RC. Its not a clean install.

I was able to install 10.04RC on my laptop without any issues however the white line issue still remains the same but laptops boots up much faster than desktop.

Don't know whats gng on.

Still safer to wait for final .iso :)

And rush is no problem when it comes to torrents as those won't be crippled by server speeds.

I'll download most versions and burn them all to my cd-rw collection.

If anyone has fast upload connection be kind and upload torrents for a couple days to help.

It will be almost as good. Should end up being exact same, but always possible some very minor unnoticeable things are different.

If you already have daily downloaded and installed keep using it. If you're asking whether to download daily and install now, I would recommend waiting for final release. It's only ~48 hours away.


Also there is no exact release date time. I'm not sure exactly what software projects everyone follows but I've never heard of someone saying that will release their software at a specific time on specific day.

I have been testing Lucid Lynx since Alpha 1. After an initial Oopla with the Alpha 1 installation I reinstalled from the Alpha 2 image and have just updated since. The system is rock stable, even more so than Jaunty (Karmic was a dud for my system). So will I reinstall from the final release image? NO. No reaon to, just a waste of time.

Very surprising: no rush of updates during the final hours before release, actually, there has been not a single update in 24 hours (using the main server).

Bottom line: if you have an up-to-date version of Lucid from the development branch, there is little incentive to do a fresh install of the final - unless you messed up your installation big time. :P

For everybody else: if you waited that long, you can wait another day! :lolflag:

Wait for the official release announcement that will be posted to the ubuntu-announce mailing list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-announce). If you're not subscribed, you can check the web archive for April here (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2010-April/date.html).

No announcement, no release. Regardless of whether people post links that appear to be working, whether some random blog says "it's released", or even whether the Ubuntu home page is updated to reflect the release.

Images can be updated at any point before release, and mirrors need to sync up. By downloading before the release announcement, you risk getting a broken half-updated image, and slowing the syncing of the mirrors (which will potentially delay the release).

The torrent should be released earlier so that a large number of people who are waiting for the release don't slow the servers down when it goes official.
Also, this sets up a nice seeding base for those who go for the torrent after it's announced.

I've always downloaded from the torrent right on release time and it is always brilliantly fast. No need to release it early in my humble opinion. Plus, releasing it early for torrent would kill some of the buzz (for me at least).

It doesn't claim to have the final release. Did you read the index.html file there? Let me paste it here:


Images are distributed here so that mirrors can pick them up in time before release. Images here may not be final even if they look as if they are; by distributing pre-release images here we can make final mirroring faster.

Please do not attempt to download images directly from this directory; by doing so, you are likely to contribute to delaying the release for everyone else, since we will have to wait longer for worldwide mirroring to complete.

Yeah, well people will use ftp pool anyways so its very easy to find. If you are big fan and can't wait no more, you can find some mirrors my blog ;)

I'm running clean install successfully now. Still have the bugs I've posted in my first post do. But no Ubuntu release is without bugs. I always have sound or video issues with each new release. Also, the boot screen are very ugly now, previews one was much better. Sometimes I think, its going down hill for ubuntu instead of up. But will see I guess.

@Silvertones, Here read this should help, http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Lucid

In my case, I installed the RC within Windows (the Wubi Method). This is the first time I've done that with an RC (however, I have done it before with 9.04 and 8.04 releases). I went with the same bitness as Windows (x64, of course). There is no noticeable degradation (in either Kubuntu or Windows) except that caused by 30 GB of drive partition going away (out of 189 GB) one the Windows side. (However, at some point I will replace the 200 GB hard drive with a 1 TB model, which means that partition issues won't really be an issue; however, I have more critical upgrades to do first.)

It's impossible to tell when precisely it's going to happen. The release is a laborious process (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReleaseProcess), performed by multiple people working in different timezones, and its completion depends, among other things, on when mirrors complete syncing, which in turn depends on network conditions all over the world.

Just use the update manager. it should ahve the option to upgrade. if it does not you have to make it look for a new version. im not 100% on how to do that. so im not going to give advice

If you're running 8.04 or 9.10 you'll be able to upgrade through the usual upgrade manager. It'll say new distribution available.

If you're running Lucid Lynx Alpha/Beta/RC there will be no prompt about a new distribution, but any upgrades will give you the final version.

I think Canonical deliberately doesn't mention an exact time because their servers get hit hard enough on the day as it is. Could you imagine how bad it would be if everyone hit the same minute?

Which is why I reckon Canonical would be extremely wise to do what most software vendors do...

Schedule the release gradually from timezone to timezone.

IE: Midnight 29th (Wed night - Thur Morn) Release to UTC +12, an hour later, UTC +11; an hour later, UTC +10, etc...

That way the release is staggered meaning everyone gets it at the same time in their own timezones. This would also ease congestion on the servers. Not everyone who wants it when it finally is released will be trying at exactly the same time!

How would that work? Any ideas?

Ofcourse, as an added bonus, we in NZ would be the first to benefit. ;-)

No, just make it accessible to NZ (or country of designation) IP addresses only. Like the TV networks do on their websites to stop 'On Demand' shows being viewed from outside their respective regions.

Ofcourse, with any system, you'll only stop honest crooks. ;-)

Well, it's just that if you go to http://ubuntu.srt.cn/ubuntu-releases/.pool/ you get a message that says:
" Images are distributed here so that mirrors can pick them up in time before release. Images here may not be final even if they look as if they are; by distributing pre-release images here we can make final mirroring faster.

Please do not attempt to download images directly from this directory; by doing so, you are likely to contribute to delaying the release for everyone else, since we will have to wait longer for worldwide mirroring to complete.

Hmmm... yes, possibly. But then, that would be somewhat misleading considering it would be a day late in some parts of the world. 3pm UTC would technically mean both Eastern Australia and NZ wouldn't get to see it on the 29th, as advertised, but instead a day late (on the 30th).

This is where a gradual release timezone by timezone (by IP address) would be a great way of distribution, without risk of jamming the servers all at once.

Just use the update manager. it should ahve the option to upgrade. if it does not you have to make it look for a new version. im not 100% on how to do that. so im not going to give advice

The update manager fetches updates off the repositories, and immediately following release and a number of days after that, they will be swamped with people downloading off it.

If you want to update your system with least hassle, use the Update Manager, but wait a few days.

Else, help everyone and download the final ISO's via bittorrent. It's also enomuously faster.

There is some way to update off CD or DVD, as well, I usually just wipe my system (after a very meticulous backup of personal data) and reinstall.

But hey, I'm a perfectionist.

Still waiting Ubuntu.

having a bit of a play with PClinuxOS 2010 while i am waiting. Looks great but I am a Ubuntu guy.

i looked it up and well i don't like redhat based distros even though it says it's different from it i can't bring myself to dare try rpm based systems. It does seem to be ok, only if it was based on debs...

I've never used debs before. This will be my first time actually rolling out ubuntu properly and not just playing with it.

Previous experience has been some Fedora desktop work, and currently a CentOS VPS which will soon become 10.04.

I like RPM's, they seem to work well. I just don't like CentOS' repository.

I'm hoping rpm > deb will be simple as.

Also 10.04 appears to be on the mirror distribution server, though i have to wait for our VPS provider to get it themselves anyway so....

For the ones that can't wait anymore, try looking into the new Ubuntu 10.04 manual just released: http://ubuntu-manual.org/ or just do as I do, playing the guitar (http://openmindedbrain.info/24/04/2010/baton-rouge-r14ce-black/) helps the waiting a little.

P.S: for the interested... it's a great quality German brand guitar.

May be they should consider removing download ubuntu 9.10 in ubuntu home page. This may cause unnecessary wastage of time and frustration for unwary
linux newbies. Atleast they should give a warning of downloading ubuntu 9.10 before a week if not a month.

the only time i ever tried rpms was way back when i was first looking into linux. I heard about redhat being the goto for desktop linux versions. And well it didn't feel that natural for me.

Then i saw ubuntu and started on it and it just well worked and was nice. Although i had to compile my own wireless driver for my old laptop it was still a nice and good experience. Ubuntu just worked and debian is really nice and feels cool and natural.

RPM based OSes to me seem to be more geared to the person who's not so much about useability but a tad bit more perfromance at a cost for it. Debian based systems seem to try to go for usability at the cost of some performance ie they're not the more efficient distro on the market but they just work which is what every computer user wants at the end of the day.

Fedora was my first linux OS ever. Jumped right in the deep end it seemed.

Things are super easy with yum, and from my limited use of apt, they seem to pretty much do the exact same thing.

tbh i think some people make a bigger deal than they need to over it, im swapping a server to ubuntu so i'm going to have to start getting used to apt and debs etc.
Shouldn't be too hard.

One of the first things i'll do though is to recreate the 'service' command. Im too used to typign that rather than /etc/init.d

well if ubuntu's server version is anything like it's desktop edition, let's just say simplicity and just working are on the top of the list(or so seems to be for me in all of my experience in it). When i finally get some decent net connection in this area i'm planning on hosting my own server to do things.

Those links are for mirroring, have a look at http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu-releases/.pool/:




Images are distributed here so that mirrors can pick them up in time before release. Images here may not be final even if they look as if they are; by distributing pre-release images here we can make final mirroring faster.

Please do not attempt to download images directly from this directory; by doing so, you are likely to contribute to delaying the release for everyone else, since we will have to wait longer for worldwide mirroring to complete.

Much as I've delayed setting up my new business server as long as possible to wait for the official 10.04 release, I was tempted to download from the above FTP site. My old server is on its last legs and may only have a day or so left so I need to get a new one up and running asap.

I started downloading - its only an hour download but then my conscience kicked in....... I only managed 2Mb before this happened lol.

I've cancelled and will be waiting for the "official announcement" - its only a few more hours so lets give everyone else a chance.

I'll wait until the torrents start streaming then seed like crazy for a few days to help the community :) I suggest everyone else does the same :guitar:

It threw a wobbly and dumped me to a root shell on reboot/startup.

No password asked for

Full Root access (I haven't even set up Root as a user).

I rebooted 3 or 4 times and had full Root access with no asking to log in or password.

As you may know, there is an important bug with this release.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/570765


We've decided to respin the 32bit and 64bit CDs of Ubuntu Desktop *ONLY*, as we feel this gives us the widest spread fix possible and allows us to still release today (April 29th). Unfortunately, this means other affected variants, such as Xubuntu, will not have this fix, and we deeply apologize for this.

That's what CD-RW's are for (but to each his own I guess)
On another note, I don't know why they don't release the torrent FIRST (even if it doesn't have the support of the main server seeding it {as long as they've uploaded a full copy first}) so that people TEMPTED to download it don't have to waste precious bandwidth during the mirror sync. Making it OFFICIALLY available as a torrent first would have the added advantage of having a lot more people use the torrents.

If anybody wants to download the final version NOW via bittorrent, here is the link:
http://rghost.net/1495001
But BEWARE! The only sites hosting this torrent are the Chinese and Russian ones. There is a possibility it contains some malware. After the file is downloaded, I recommend downloading the torrent file from one of official sources and compare them later.

BURNING TIME!

I remember buying my first CD-RW drive for around 300 many many years ago (well I sent the MD out to buy it in an emergency lol)

Also remember paying over 7 for a blank CD-R and 15 for a blank CD-RW

And the good old days of booting from floppies as the Hard Drives were the size of an office.

I'll always remember the sale of my first Tandy 8086 PC :D
