Ubuntu 10.04
01 June 2010

Upgrading my laptop from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 was relatively painless. I did get a scare when the graphics failed with a white streaky screen. For some reason there was an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that shouldn't have been there. After switching to console and removing the conf file, the graphics were fine. Flash had to be fixed by removing the flash plugin and re-installing via command line with

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

That's all I had to do after the upgrade. At least for now.


So it turns out that I am having major issues with Lucid Lynx. Well, one issue, it freezes constantly. Especially during boot and shutdown requiring hard kills. I will spend some time trying to repair it, but it's looking like I'll be downgrading.
