Kubuntu 8.04 issues, updated
Posted by anjilslaire on April 25, 2008
I’ve installed Hardy with KDE3.5.9, for stability purposes. It detects pretty much everything, and my /home partition remains intact, with all my settings, etc.
There is NO Restricted Driver Manager included. Not even in Synaptic (which I prefer & install manually on top of KDE. Yes, I know its Gnome, blah blah blah)
I’ve had the RDM previously, and had no problems with it. But, there’s something not right with this thing. I need to play with it more. Of course, the repo’s are slow as mud, since its just been released and the servers are being hammered, but I cant even find this stuff in synaptic (yes, I’ve edited my sources.list).
I’m not a happy camper right now. I’ll keep you posted
Found the restricted driver manager, trying that out to see how it goes. That should be a huge fix for the issues on my box. Its listed as System > Hardware Drivers Manager… PEBKAC, I know…
*UPDATE part II*
OK, everything seems pretty smooth, but the repositories are getting hammered. It’s painfully slow to install anything. Of course, that’s to be expected of a new release. Still Bites, though.
