    Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    I think someone should update (fix typo) the Alpha 2 page at:
    http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/...Known%20issues

    the line "sudo nvidia-config"
    with "sudo nvidia-xconfig"

    Only non-newbies will figure out that that's just a typo, and not a Ubuntu issue.

    I see they really are planning full removal of hal. A bunch of programs (like xfburn) will not work because of this.

    They said A2 has full removal of hal but I still see hal processes. So not sure which is true or not.

    Is it already possible to have nouveau working on lucid? I couldn't install it in alpha1, it's the only thing that is keeping me back now.

    Thumbs down Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    Progress....

    A2 CD live won't boot, initial boot screen freezes no matter what is tried on the linux boot line or what keystrokes are used.

    A1 updated to A2 level won't run any time at all unless "nomodeset" and "vesa" are used.

    A2 Alternate installed O.K., has been running! (careful! Don't update it, it's running! "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!")

    Linux version 2.6.32-10-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.4.3 20100105 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.4.2-8ubuntu2) ) #14-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 7 17:38:40 UTC 2010

    So on this machine the fix is the A2 alternate install.

    I was told that the removal of HAL means that there is no more automount.

    Please tell me that this is not so.

    If that's true then there better be a good tutorial on how to make that happen. Otherwise can't use ubuntu. SSD + hard drive having hard drive partitions mount on boot makes life easy as it's where all my data goes.

    I've messed with fstab many times and it is a big clusterfark.

    Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    Now I've wasted 2 CDs and a few hours of time. A2 386 Live does nothing, A2 386 alt gives me the install, boots to black screen, hear bongos, type name return, type password return, get music, black screen.

    Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    That's USB automount. You would need to manually mount flash drives OR install "usbmount" (universe).
    Hard drive automount is kernel/init stuff, with fstab to control it. But that has gotten maybe a little bit better in Lucid.
