A Feisty Ubuntu Installation Checklist
Ubuntu's Feisty Fawn OS was released in April this year and I was very happy to observe a noticable performance improvement when I installed it onto Michelle's laptop. Having been a Debian user from way back and with full confidence in the apt package management, I decided to upgrade my Edgy desktop straight away. Unfortunately, a couple of niggling bugs appeared.
Here is my short todo list for post-fiesty-installation to work around these problems.A Feisty Ubuntu Installation Checklist
On the whole, the most annoying change to Fiesty was the new usb system which broke my scanner. It also caused problems with Michelle's camera which took a bit of fixing. I never had these problems on Edgy.
It would be a real shame if Ubuntu developed a reputation for being unstabe. On the other hand, however, its nice to have access to the latest toys and performance improvements.
