At last!! i've got a working hardy instalation in my prefered ubuntu studio variant!!
Tried pre-release hardy, no joy with disk or upgrade,
tried hardy 32bit/64bit normal and ubuntu studio, no joy on upgrade or in clean install(though did get wubi to work)
Today fancyed giving it another go.. upgraded from 64bit ubuntu studio gutsy to hardy and so far only minor setup problems! at last!
I am a novice so sure others could of got this sorted earlier, but forums couldn't suggest anything that would work,... no to change my signature
Dell Inspiron 530s
Intel® Viiv™ Core™ 2 Duo E6850 Processor (3.00GHz,1333MHz,4MB cache)
Ubuntu Studio 8.04 64-bit & Vista 32 bit(dual boot)
The install was easy and flawless. It must be since I add third party apps and unsupported apps till I kill it and have to reinstall every few weeks.
Works great as long as I don't install or mess with things I don't know about and that's a lot.
Installed on Gateway with AMD64 X2 4200 and all onboard Nvidia network and video. Also using the dreaded netgear WG111 wireless USB Dongle with ndis and it works great.
unfortunately it doesn't work great with 64 bit Hardy. Most other stuff did but I had to go back to 32bit to use the wireless since they don't make a 64bit driver at netgear so that wasn't Hardy's fault.
Have the usual problems like not playing certain videos until I figure out the player and codecs but once again, not Hardy. Had that prob with all distros till I figured it out.
My rating is that it's the best. Squashes XP/Vista even though the install is more dummy proofed for MS OS's
IEs4Linux, which installs IE 5, 5.5, and/or 6 under in Linux under wine.
If Vista was as good as Hardy they'd be a smile as wide as the Amazon on Steve Balmer's face.
This advice quoted below did not work for me. I opened a terminal window and changed to the directory ( /usr/share/applications ) and did a "ls" command. There are no programs that look anything like screen and graphics. My system is 8.04 fresh. Unlike Mr.Ms. rupierto, my system did not come from version 7 upgrade.
Please help and give some step by step help for a system 8.04 fresh.
