A programmer that uses Vista? :O
Vista is a hog of an operating system. Downgrade to Windows XP or get
yourself a Linux distro.
After downloading the last ubuntu, I stay with vista, sorry.
1) did not recognize the network card
2) Did not install X windows
3) you have to figure out that the system comes with a
mysterious root password. Since under unix you can't do
anything without the root password, you should know that
to change the root password you should open a shell and type
sudo passwd root
Obviously all unix exports will know that, but if you aren't...
4) After that it goes to tell me that the only resolution you have
is 1280x1024. Even if my monitor natively supports 1900x1200. No
way to change it.
5) First screen X windows shows a blank screen. No icons, no mouse,
no nothing. But if you reboot, the second time it will show you
a login screen , and then, the blank screen. Obviously you reboot
one time more and MIRACLE, you see a desktop. Nice isn't it?
6) If you left the screen saver run, you are doomed. Once the screen
saver takes over, there is NO AMOUNT of mouse clicks, keyboard
pressing, that will wake the machine up. Solution+
Type ctrl+Alt+F1, then you will see a text screen.
then see which process is the gnome display manager (gdm)
kill it with the command
kill -9 <gdm process number>
or just reboot...
7) The provided "media player" doesn't recognize the mp3 format.
You need to go to the internet, download some gizmo, install it,
see why it doesn't work, figure out if ubuntu still supports
"alsa" or if it only supports a new ubuntu sound standard... then
figure out which gizmo supports ubuntu mp3, etc etc.
8) Video playing doesn't work either.
9) But if you have an electric guitar you can tune it using some
Happily I do not need ubuntu since I do not develop there.
By the way, the system comes without compiler. You have to download
gcc, then you have to figure out that you need the libraries, then gdb,
then you have
well, FORGET IT!
I rebooted into Vista.
