Seeing as I’ve the complete ubuntu disc lying around, and as I don’t do things by halves, I go for a full install. After all, Ubuntu can see and work Prism chipsets can’t it ?
Bollocks it can.
It’s sitting there, takes bloody ages to restart, cannot see the NIC AT ALL and this it’s so cool it’ll take over the world version of linux is proving to be as useful as a piece of soggy toast against a tornado.
Ubuntu ? NO.
(Oh, and sitting watching it install all these “packages” that I will never use ? That’s not bloat ?? Nah… course not…..)
Suse cannot see it either.
Wow..this linux stuff sure is user-friendly eh ?????
Quote of the day in #ubuntu: “Use a hardline”
Reinstall disc image. Grub error 17. Dead machine. Wonderful. HUGE kudos to Skippy and SuperLag in #wordpress. Latest ubuntu being downloaded.
Oxymoron: user-friendly Linux
Despite a lot of help, f*ck it. Latest ubuntu downloaded and installed. All this apparently cutting edge code cannot see the sound card, cannot see two NIC’s, cannot – even when hardwired – update devices. So bugger it. Ubuntu has been proclaimed as user-friendly, the answer to everyone’s problems and for me ? It’s garbage. I have wasted more than SEVEN hours trying to get this crap to run, and right now the disc image is going back in. I’ve yet to find if the mbr is screwed again.
Shoot the f*cking penguin.
