View Full Version : Tudrunktu

I think we just coined a new Ubuntu derivative. After an all night party I came hope picked up a supposedly broken laptop, and wondered whether I could manage to install a *buntu whilst too drunk to converse coherently by IM, at which point Tudrunktu (http://technomancer.me.uk/blog/tudrunktu) was born.

After applying some of the technomancer magic (mostly disbelieving that it's broken and then dropping it as detailed in linked article) I got from mythbuntu (frontend only) to ubuntu-desktop, thus proving just how user friendly the installer interface is. In the last HCI module I studied it was noted that excessive alcohol consumption was a good substitute for a user unfamiliar with a UI. My install success should be taken as a vote of confidence in the installer. It should be noted that I have done a lot of installs before, and Ubuntu is my main platform, however I have trashed many other distros by fiddling when drunk, and when I can be bothered to do a gentoo install I have learnt from experience to make sure I don't have any beers in the house :-)

Please kick me and this post appropriately if it ends up in the wrong place, I'm still quite fscked :)
