View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading Ubuntu on E1505

September 9th, 2008, 03:23 PM
I have an E1505 that I recently upgraded from 7.04 to 7.10. I think in part because of customizations and such, it was a totally miserable experience. So, now I am considering wiping the machine clean, and doing a clean install of 8.04, after which I will install the kubuntu-desktop to get kubuntu.

I noticed there was a Dell-specific iso of 7.10, but I could not find a Dell-specific ISO of 8.04 at first look. Do they have one?

Second, I am limited to wifi right now for my internet access. Thus, I have to have a .deb or similar for my wireless, which is the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection. Is there something like this, or do I have to go the wired route with build-essentials and linuxheaders?

Is there any other hiccups in upgrading?
