Ubuntu 9.04 looks nice

Postby BAD » Sat Apr 25, 2009 5:44 am

I just checked out Ubuntu 9.04 and I did not find any problems unlike 8.04. As long as no one goes on vacation the next Mint should be great.

I have not tested but I tend to agree to an extent from what I've heard - BUT support for Intel graphics is a disaster in Jaunty

Could not agree more. Jaunty intel graphics is a total disaster. Any Idea when Mint 7 will be available? I do like the volume control in Jaunty.

Mint will have the exact same volume control. There is also a bug with the volume control that mutes the sound at random. I submitted the bug report! I have Intel graphics too. Here is the bug report for that. I submitted that one too!

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/346289

Sorry I don't have a link for the volume control bug, if I kept all of the bug reports in my e-mail my inbox would be full.

So many good things about Jaunty, yet one major problem...

My thoughts exactly! Something else that's really funny is that the new notifications system doesn't work! You have Debian and the Gnome developers to thank for what does work well!

That is a shame about Intel video. Personally I do not buy Intel products. Intel only cares about quarterly sales. Their policy used to be release 2 processor speed each quarter like 500 533 then 545 550 then 566 575 then Christmas sales 600 633 and now they keep just ahead of AMD.

There may be a few issues but there are always thing that are not perfect in a new Ubuntu release but this one is nice.

I guess I'll have to stay with Elyssa for a while longer, or jump off the ubuntu based distros all together... :?:

I have suggested that we should alleviate the Intel Video problem as far as possible, but it can't be fixed completely
Maybe Mint should be Debian based :)

That would indeed be better. :)
I've been trying out sidux for a while, it's really smoking.
And the new Zenwalk 6(Slackware based) is really great to, maybe it IS time for me to start distrohopping again... :?

I am posting this from my eeePC 1000HE running Jaunty Netbook Remix. It has Intel graphics and everything else Intel in it's guts with no problems so far. I know this is not a full blown machine but can you be more specific about the problems with Intel graphics chips?
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

You find it in ther release notes
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904
specifically
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/release ... cs%20cards
Strangely the release notes are hard to find

I like the debian idea....let alone if mint could be a rolling release cycle.

well, while intel graphics might have suffered a regression, the open-source ati driver is a welcome upgrade: hot-plugging multiple monitors of different resolutions is now trivially easy, unlike with the proprietary one in intrepid/felicia.

I'd prefer for mint to stick with an ubuntu base. While this does have it's problems, I want the latest and greatest software available as soon as possible, and debian just doesn't move that fast (e.g. when would it get installer ext4 support). I'm starting to think that even ubuntu is moving too slowly with the latest software (openoffice 3 was at release candidate for intrepid's release, so why not use it) I'll have to look into rolling releases, they sound interesting. The downside I can think of immediately is my tendency to bloat my system over time with software I rarely use, so I welcome the fresh and responsive new installs every 6 months.

Sounds like you need to check out sidux!

Are you suggesting that sidux is comparable to Mint? To be clear, I installed 9.04 in place of Mint 6. Should I reinstall 6 or wait until Mint 7. Any idea when 7 may be available? :!:

I tried out the new Ubuntu last night after not being able to resolve the intel graphics problem with Felicia
(tried all the suggested work rounds). Both live Cd and install worked faultlessly, so imo a welcom improvement.

Roll on Mint 7

intel graphics problem with Felicia

Yes the regression started with Intrepid and has been partly solved and partly made worse in Jaunty
