    Dell Mini Ubuntu upgrade??

    I just got a Dell A90 and like Ubuntu 8.04 that it came with, but I have one problem. I don't understand what it takes to upgrade the Flash Player so that I can watch Hulu video. I'm brand new to Ubuntu, and confused about all the options. Should I try to sort out the Flash Player issue, or would it be better just to upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu, such as 9.04 or 9.10, and if so, should I do Netbook remix or the the standard version? I've also thought about going the Hackintosh route, but I would like to stay with Ubuntu if I can solve the video problem. Thanks!

    Hi,

    have you tried the DELL UBUNTU SUPPORT sub-forum here in UF?

    http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=342

    they may have specific answers for DELL pre-installed Ubuntu OS'. I seem to recall the 8.04 DELL install is somewhat 'special'.

    Good luck.

    Hi Raymond,

    Thanks! I re-posted over in the Dell Support section. I must be blind not having seen that section before. Thanks so much!
