    I installed Beta 1 in VBox this weekend, and it installed great! I only had one or two crashes while trying to setup the VBox video card, which I never could get any higher then 800x600. From reading more into this, the VirtualBox tools that get installed use the HAL, which isn't used with Ubuntu 10.04, so I'm not sure there is a work around :-/

    But from what I've seen I like the theme and new apps. I can't wait for the Music store to be available. It just says Coming Soon in RhythmBox.

    For anyone interested here are some screenshots I posted on our LUG forum:

    Take care --

    I upgraded my Darter to Lucid Beta 1 without incident -- except that I had to remove openoffice.org-filter-binfilter due to a circular dependency issue. Compiz, which never worked before on this machine, now works, and the hard drive, which used to sound like a rat eating Grape Nuts, is now pleasingly silent. Suspend never worked on this machine and still doesn't. My volume control disappeared and I can't find a way to get it back -- but otherwise, the water is fine, come on in.

    Did you try running the system76 driver again? That fixed almost all of my problems when I upgraded my netbook (well not wireless but that's a known issue)

    Re: Sys76 thoughts on Lucid Lynx Alpha 3

    I have not tried 10.04 on my wifes pangolin.

    I am testing it on my desktop.

    Most of you are probably running 9.10 and I can tell you that, as a surviver of 9.10-testing, 10.04-testing is boring by comparison. This bugger is more stable than 9.10 at RC.

    It will be on the wifes S76 box. It is just nicer than 9.10.

    The buttons on the left side, by the way are easy to fix in gconf-editor>apps>metacity>general>button layout. If you want the same order and placement that you are used to you want to edit that to read :minimize,maximize,close

    Gconf-editor can be added to your menu under whatever name you want and under command put
    gconf-editor

    That command will also, of coarse, pull it up in terminal for you.

    They even seem to be getting plymouth under control.

    The thing does boot fast but the 10 second or less target is for something running the atom processor and using a SDD. For most folks on more standard hardware the speed seems to vary from the high teens to about 40 seconds when everything is working right (it is a beta1).

    Now, as to what I popped over here from the 10.04 forum for, how in flinderation is the testing on the S76 driver for 10.04 going and do you need another pangolin running it?

    It's going pretty well. Still a lot of work to do, though. A System76 Driver that supports 10.04 won't be released, though, until after the official release of Lucid.

    All right.

    If you need testing help just holler over on the testing forum. There are several Sys76 boxes on it now.

    I would put it on the wifes but I am trying to be good and leave it alone.

    The easiest way would be to open System->Preferences->Main Menu then click on "System Tools". Check mark "Configuration Editor"
