This forum will be closing tomorrow (29-April-2010). All discussion about Ubuntu 10.04 should move to the main tech support forums at that time.

Thanks,

Surely it cannot nearly be time for the Maverick Meerkat forum !!

Phill.

No chance of keeping it open an extra day so people can finish conversations instead of wading through countless posts in the main tech support forums?

Also to others reading this, there will probably be a lot of questions that this dev forum has answers to, so make sure to link to them.

If you find any threads that you think should be continued in the main support forums, let us know, by reporting the thread.

The MM sub-forum should be open in a couple of days.

Yesterday I said "Good bye" to the lynx:

and the meerkat said "Hello" to me:

A presto!

Will this forum still be available as a "read only" so it can be referenced for possible problem solutions or configuration methods?

I'd recommend that all of us spend more time at Absolute Beginners and the appropriate Main Support categories to help grow the community for the next couple of months!

The more the merrier :guitar:

I felt that this cycle was exemplary!

I couldn't agree more! I switched back in January and haven't run into ONE serious breakage :D
I'll see y'all in the MM board - this time I'll be along for the full ride (for the first time having previously started testing on my main intall with the early alphas). :guitar:

Yeah, feels like a real production, hasn't it? I came to Lucid because my new Arrandale-based Dell laptop wasn't properly supported by Jaunty, and booted to a black screen of death in Karmic. Hopefully the Meerkat (or a Lucid backports module, hopefully) will finally enable suspend and hibernate, as well as sound on dad's AspireRevo.

Will there be a final zsync file like there was for the RC (http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/), so we don't have to download the entire final ISO and just sync the last live-daily?

zsync will download the latest daily if you have set it to download. So your answer is yes if you have configured correctly. But the best way is just to install RC and just update the system.

That didn't answer my question. You know for a fact there will be a zsync for the final, or are you just guessing.

You can download all version and flavours of ubuntu with dl-ubuntu-test-iso script.

There is a zsync file for official releases. I use a command something like this:


zsync -i lucid-desktop-i386.iso http://www.your.local.mirror/path/to/ubuntu/release-name.iso.zsync

That command leaves the original .iso untouched. At this stage, it's looking like running that command will simply result in two identical iso files with different names. That's what happened to me last release.

I'm an Ubuntu fan and always will be... but you've got to be kidding... Maverick Meerkat? There are political implications in a negative, faddish sort of way when anyone uses the word "maverick" in the US right now. It summons up an awful lot of laughter and mental images of stupidity and ineptness among people from both sides of the fence. I won't mention anything more specific so this post isn't out of bounds as far as forum rules but IMHO this is a very bad choice of names. 'Love the Meerkat part though.

"This forum" meaning, "Lucid Lynx Testing and Discussion forum" will be closed. Right, Technoviking?

It seems some people misinterpreted that. They thought the entire Ubuntu Forums is closing. Good thing there's the second statement to back up.

Lucid RC as delivered, default, is broken on two of my pc's, both with intel graphics. Karmic runs fine.

The Lucid forum has been a big help. A bunch of us are trying to get help from Launchpad bugs like #541492 with a few finding some modification but the rest of us are still pretty broken.

When the Lucid forum is closed, we're dumped into the general Ubuntu forums where our Lucid concerns are much diluted throughout myriad threads and it is more difficult to find help.

So, Karmic runs fine, from my standpoint Karmic should be the LTC, not unstable Lucid. I'll drop Lucid and look for the next Alpha.

I have two computers with intel processor/graphics (g965 and 945 chipsets). Both work perfectly fine with 10.04 liveusb.
What chipset are you using? Link to the bug reports?

EDIT:
bug report your talking about (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/541492) for those wondering.

Looks like affecting real old intel chipsets.
Hopefully 10.10 will fix it as they will have newer drivers and 10.04 drivers are all over the place (using older version, backporting, disabling stuff late in development).

That's the good thing about linux/ubuntu. If a version doesn't work, keep using older version (9.10) and wait 6 months for newer version (10.04). Make sure to be active in testing to make sure it gets fixed for 10.10 :)

Mine is i865 and it works perfectly also. I know Jerry's is a little bit older, say i845.

Soon time to upgrade hardware ;)

I tossed my old P4 1.7ghz 768mb SDR ram i845 for a $240 1.6ghz atom 1gb ram GMA950 nettop 5 months ago. Now you can get 1.6ghz dual core atom and nvidia ion for $300. They're very small and quiet and use 20-50 watts electricity.

EDIT:
If 10.04 release doesn't happen until April 30, please don't close this forum on April 29. :O

chipsets I'm using: i845, 2 gHz, 1Gb ram 1280x1024 LCD ThinkCentre and i830 IBM Thinkpad both of which run internet, Office, email, ... just fine, Nice and responsive. In another room I have a 3.3 gHz 2 Gb Compaq which runs Lucid mostly reliably but do TV-Viewer with Karmic.

In my case 9.10 is stable and (10.04) is unstable. Both mine are multi booted with rock solid Karmic, Debian, Slitaz, and unstable Lucid 10.04.

Have fun with MM.

I have been running LL for the last month as a production system with little trouble. I just reinstalled and did the cleanest setup yet with Linux. As Ubuntu keeps getting better, I am learning how to set it up better. I think I'll be spending the next 36 months on LL.

Finally, normal support period starts.:guitar:

Maybe linux mint or various ubuntu derivatives that come out shortly will work better.
