I just ran into the new xorg issue. While trying to install Hardy on an old PIII, it crashes after rebooting and making it *almost* all the way through the splash screen. It actually fails when trying to start X.

Some research on the web shows that the 3DLabs Oxygen AGP video card that was in the system is no longer supported (worked fine in 7.10). Switching to another card (Some kind of ATI AGP card I pulled out of a similar system in the junk pile) allowed the system to boot just fine.

So, looks like some of the older, more obscure video cards aren't supported any more. This isn't really a problem for me, as I usually stick to the mainstream manufacturers. This was a salvaged system I'm giving away.



Congratulations for the tips, thanks...

I haven't commented in a while. So to let you know I have been using Hardy on my laptop for the past two weeks. It is everything I expected and more. I am loving the new weather feature next to the day and time.

I haven't been about to get it working right on my desktop, but I don't send much time on it anyway, I just use it to store movies, music, and such. I have one qualm with Hardy using the Beta of Firefox, though I am sure with time my favorite add-ons will function again.

Anyway keep up the great posts, I have been reading just not much time. You know with me separating and all. Which I am looking forward to, it means I will be able to go back to college, yay!



Thanks! :)

If you upgrade, your settings will be saved. If you do a fresh install but you backup your .gnome* and .gconf* you'll keep your theme stuff. Keep .mozilla/ for Firefox stuff. Compiz stuff is in .compiz ...all these are hidden files in your home directory. They can be viewed by pressing ctrl+H in th file browser.

ubuntu-restricted-extras will get you all the Flash, Java, etc. stuff.

Wow. I love your blog. :)

Also, I have a question.

How much work am I going to have to do to re-setup a whole bunch of settings and programs I have from Gutsy. I wasn't able to make a /home partition...

I'm specifically, but not exclusively, referring to Themes, Desktop Effects, Picasa, Google Desktop, Firefox, Sound Settings, etc.

Will I have to reconfigure everything, or is it a nice smooth upgrade?



Oops, thanks! Updating that link now.

2008-04-26T13:34:00.000-04:00

Thanks for the FAQ, I was really freakin' out cause I couldn't upgrade my gutsy.
An issue: your link to the alternate cd for amd64 points to i386.

I hope Hardy's more user-friendly with new laptops----

Hi,
I did notice that dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg did not have the vast options it used to, however which I tried your suggestion to use xfix, it said the command was not found. It is also not in the repositories. Are you sure the command you listed is correct?
Thank you.

Do you know if BATMAN/Open Mesh net (http://open-mesh.net/) is going to be included with Ubuntu?

2008-04-23T23:27:00.000-04:00

In Feisty & Gutsy, getting the firmware for Broadcom meant installing bcm43xx-fwcutter, but in Hardy, the package you need is b43-fwcutter because there are new Broadcom drivers. It should automatically fetch a copy of the Windows driver and extract the firmware upon install.

2008-04-23T23:24:00.000-04:00

I was wondering if you could expand on the broadcom drivers thing (or point me to somewhere that does). A friend of mine is having trouble with his wireless card on the Hardy RC.

Also, what network is #ubuntu-release-party on?
