    Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    Hi! Thanks for the info ...

    >> I had already burn a current image of 10.04 on a dvd, this morning, no need to wait for cd sized. But thanks anyway.

    >> It's really risky installing an alpha on a laptop i'll use professionally ... TRUE
    The temptation is becasue of this information:
    Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit install problems on Dell Studio 1558

    >> I'll try both of them and see ...
    The thing is 9.10 (estability but some hw incompatibilities) against 10.04 (non-stable but better hw compatibility) ???
    It depends on the "size" of this (in)estability and the (in)compatibility

    Luckily, ranch hand, i finally have the desktop (it comes from that post) running quite nicely with the 9.10. Thanks!
    So, it's time to change the patient, now the laptop.

    I'll keep you updated.

    Salut,
    jordi

    Well, I would hope we all are doing that. I am.

    I work with the iso's and zsync on my hard drive, then copy the end-result iso to the bootable media.

    Re: Lucid Lynx Alpha 2 Released

    tell me is there any information as to when can we expect gflrx driver for ati screen card?

    my os crashed again because of something related to wmv real media codecs i think
    it called pulse something any way installing the os is no problem but frankly without
    ati driver i can't do much with this os compiz doesn't fully work and i can't see movies
    in my lcd tv i can create dual view but the tv screen is pink like solorize or something
    like this but with pink color maybe because it's pal tv not ntsc.

    any way without solving this problem i would still need windows 7 so i can't use ubuntu 24/7
    and as such i see no reason to reinstall it again once i have this driver i don't care if it's not
    final i would be able to use it non stop.

    thanks in advance.

    3: Run "zsync http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/lucid-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync"
    4: Run USB creator against resulting image, using a USB stick of >1GB.
    5: 24 Hrs later, go to 3.

    This is exactly how I have been doing it for quite some time. Except step#5. I wait a few days or a week. Actually I found doing it on Sunday is best because there is fewer updates.

    Also I have a Zsync folder on an NTFS partition that I have been using. On a whim I decided to use a linux ext4 partition instead, just as a test. Unbelievable it was much faster. I was thinking the ntfs-3g process is not needed on linux reads/writes. It might, and probably is, a fluke. I'll know more come next Sunday.

    It your burning an ISO using Brasero, it automatically erases the disk. In fact it won't write otherwise.

    If your talking about a total format, I rarely do that. Only when I have errors will try that. It takes around 17 minutes for a complete format. Usually that fixes my errors, and I only have errors on large files, like DVD movies.
