I feel so proud. Just wondering? Is it a common thing finding bugs? Like in everyday use, not trying to. (One no one has found to your knowledge)

I haven't come across that many bugs, even in the beta.

Don't forget to file a proper report (or, if the bug was already reported, indicate that you're able to reproduce it) on launchpad.

Try reporting it - if nobody has found it, it won't be listed on Launchpad :)

And it's not that common, unless of course, you're using the development version, then you're a little more likely to run into them ;)

Every software has bugs, and fixing bugs creates more bugs. However reporting bugs makes Ubuntu better for everyone. Thank you for helping out! :D

Its not common because its WUBI, and not many people don't have the windows bootloader when they use it. And i've just started one.

Report it anyway. If something similar is found, you will be given some options on launchpad.net....If none of the items match what you are seeing, create a new report....

The triage team will determine if there is already a report....if a duplicate, they will merge your report with a master report....

Whenever I've reported things, I've been taken straight to a pre-existing bug on Launchpad, that's why I worded it that way :)

So what's the Bug?

WUBI didn't replace my bootloader, it installed grub ontop of FreeBSD bootloader.

You do know that Wubi just installs a bootloader inside of the Windows bootloader, right? That's not a bug; that's the intended design.

I thought Wubi was a bug? J/K! I found a new one the other day and of course the bug report didn't have enough info in it, so I am having to "debug" it.

In the bootloader, yes. Did it install the rest of Wubi?

It just installs a menu entry into the Windows bootloader. When FreeBSD starts, choose Windows, when that menu pops up, choose Ubuntu.

Nope. I just explained it badly.
