Oh is it update time again? Geez, seems like it comes around every 6 months. TIme to change the repositories and get a great new operating system again. I've been waiting for the final release of Fiesty Fawn (not too much of a bleeding edge guy). I'll probably do it tonight.
Then again, I've been doing this since Warty.
It actually is every six months in point of fact. The next one, Gusty Gibbon, is already on the development teams minds and I am sure that a bleeding edge install will be able to be installed within the next month at the outside.
As i said, I have been using Feisty for months with no issues and I love it. Then again, like you, I went through Edgy, Dapper, Warty, Hoary and now Feisty, just not in that order. *grins*
Thanks for the info. I'm going to do a fresh install of the amd64 version. I hope it is more stable then the edgy version.
I am still using Ubuntu 6.06 dapper. It's very stable and reliable. Some people say that Edgy is not as weel as dapper. So I would like to know when the next LFS version will be released.
I am intending to switch to Ubuntu fairly soon. I have been using Mandriva for a while, but I am interested to see what the Ubuntu people have come up with. It certainly looks like a good distro and always gets positive reviews...
They did make the upgrade simpler. Before you had to change the repositiries from the last version to the new one. This time there was an upgrade option in the update manager and it only took a couple of clicks.
It's still a good idea to check the upgrade page on Ubuntu's website first just to make sure that there aren't any problems. I have the straight gnome install, things are slightly different for Kubuntu and Xubuntu.
I love Ubuntu but I won't use it because of its lack of support regarding games.
Ubuntu + Beryl had the best possible productivity I've ever tried.
Is there a new LTS every 5 years or is just the support 5 years and do they release a new version sooner?
btw, also just installed Feisty, and it is worth it!
Although I still found some small bugs (on fullscreen application which have to be run with extra commandline arguments)
But since I found out how to run them (well I found wich arguments to add), everythings fine yet again!
