Ubuntu 6.10 FTW

So I got bored and downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu 6.10 and put it on my laptop. Last time I tried to do it I had problems getting the wireless to work. Thanks to the Ubuntu Official Forums this was much easier this time around and I finally got her working right. So now I am using it. I found a guide on Digg to help make Ubuntu as functional as windows. It helps you get programs to do things such as burn DVD's, play music and DVD's etc etc. Plus it is all possible via Ubuntu's update manager so you don't have to compile anything yourself.

So no more Windows XP on my laptop

Looks like I need to start a download. I couldn't get wireless to work either which is why I gave up on it last time.

Re: Ubuntu 6.10 FTW

What wireless card do you have? This is the guide I used if you have a BCM4306 Wireless card bcm4306 ndiswrapper installation guide - Ubuntu Forums

One thing I noticed is that when you upgrade the kernel you have to uninstall and reinstall. Not a big deal to me it doesn't take long to go through the setup.

If you need help getting WPA enabled let me know.

This is the article I used: The Perfect Desktop - Part 3: Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
