    Talking Ubuntu 10.04LTS is Here!

    I'm downloading Kubuntu as I type. It'll be the first 64-bit OS I've installed on any of my computers.

    I doubt I'll be able to install it this weekend...way too busy. But I can now back up everything, wipe, and install fresh once I get some time.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04LTS is Here!

    I've noticed a little bit of wonkyness when I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04. Not from the OS itself per say but from a few specific programs. Especially VLC.

    I eventually got everything worked out. I think most of my problems were from where I kept my old /home drive and some of the hidden files some programs put in there were from older versions of said programs and it caused issues.

    People say the boot time is alot faster now. Personally it seems the same to me. If anything it seems like it takes longer to log in then it did before, but that could just be in my head.

    The only annoying thing I found from the distro itself was where they moved the minimize, maximize, and close buttons from the right side of the title bars to the left. A very strange and unnecessary change if you ask me.

    Now its a quick easy fix, but I found that after doing the fix sometimes my buttons would disappear completely from title bars. Course once I changed the theme away from the default I've not had a single problem.

    I think one of the biggest factors to the boot speed would be the use of ext4. But if you didn't reformat your partitions they will still be the slower ext3.

    Ubuntu has been using ext4 before version 10.04. I use ext4 for my partition that I mount as /. My /home partition is ext3 though because I've kept it around for a long time to preserve my documents, music, and such.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04LTS is Here!

    One problem I have is it randomly logs me out in the middle of doing things while using Firefox. I started using chrome and this has went away so far seems a few others are having this issue too. All the fixes per say for me dont work yet either.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04LTS is Here!

    I wonder if its the Flash player plug-in. I know the closed source plug-in has been horribly buggy in the past. I wouldn't be surprised if its taking out your entire desktop (effectively logging you out). Once X crashes, then you'll need to log back in.

    Have you tried disabling flash plug-in and seeing if that works?

    Stable and fast for me (upgraded from 9.10). I did switch the window button layout back to standard... stupid Mac-style default

    Well something must be crashing X. I wonder if its a minor glitch in your video driver that 'Flares Up' only with FF. :/

    My laptop's Intel video driver has a glitch that would sometimes cause it to hard lock if I resized my windows with 3D effects enabled. That problem did eventually get traced back to the driver (some other Intel users had the same issue), but it never got fixed. I want to see if it is fixed now with 10.04. I just haven't got to actually installing it yet.

    We have seen this (or a very similar) issue on RHEL/CentOS too if folks run the latest Mozilla binaries for Firefox. (The native RHEL/CentOS packages are unaffected as they still run 3.0.x, and only v3.5 or greater seem to be affected)

    AFAIK, it's not specific to any one graphics driver/vendor as I've seen reports from Intel and nvidia users. From my own experience, it only seems to affect 32-bit OS. Running the 32-bit Mozilla Firefox builds on x86_64 OS doesn't trigger the crash. It's not unique to the Mozilla distributed binaries either - rpm packaged builds also suffer the same issue.

    Certain web pages will consistently trigger the crash, with X restarting causing the user to get "logged out".

    We've never really been able to nail down the cause.
