Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience
Extra,new S-ATA disk installed just days before gutsy came out, so fresh install made sense.
ISO dowload from local ftpsite took only ten mins. Had the disk already partitioned and formatted.
For some reason i chose ext2 as filesystem, which turned out Ubuntu doesn't like: Got a message in install when choosing partitions that filesystem has non-compatible options.
Decided to let the Gutsy one do it's own formatting in ext3 and within 30mins i was up and running including dowload of propriatry ATI fglrx driver (meaning no compiz). It even set the proper resolution of 1680x1050 on my 20" LCD automaticaly. It required a reboot, but hey...
Amorok complained when firing up last.fm about not being able to play mp3, so had to get all the dirty stuff, which took a few mins to download and install, but since then:
I'm impressed and thinking about getting an nVidia 8500 just for kicks (and compiz).
