The Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn beta came out a few days ago, after finding out about it I have decided to try it out. It’s quite risky has it’s still beta version, but want to try it out and help testing it. The first version of Ubuntu that I tried out was 6.04 Dapper, then I upgraded it to 6.10 Edgy and now to Feisty, will post again after the upgrade if it still works :D.

It’s getting quite late now, the upgrade seems to run fine until I restart the computer. It has problem booting into Linux giving me an kernel panic error, seems I’m not the only having the problem! At the moment, using Ubuntu 6.10 live CD to see if I can fix it, backing everything up. In the worse case, will wait until the final version come out and install the new one instead :(.

Finally got Ubuntu 7.04 beta working, at the end I had to format my comp and do a new installation. As I had to format some of the partitions anyway I thought about installing DesktopBSD and PC-BSD but couldn’t get either of them working. The new 7.04 is good with some new features, still testing it out and a lot of updates and installations to do. In a way it’s that the upgrade didn’t work so I had to clean up my computer! Let’s see how it goes…

Fixed the problem with high cpu (100%) usage and slower response with ubuntu 7.04 compare to 6.10. Installed the xorg 7.2 and the problem seems to be solved, everything is running smoothly and as fast as before . To do this:
Add the following to your sources.list (i.e. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)
deb http://users.tkk.fi/~tjaalton/xorg72 feisty xorg-test
Update your apt database
sudo apt-get update
Run the upgrade
sudo apt-get upgrade
If you have EXA enable, you might want to change it to XAA first. Other than that, restart session by Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and everything should be a lot faster!

Ubuntu 7.04 detect k800i without the need of installing extra drivers. Today I just wanted to get some photos from the k800i, since I just got the new ubuntu I thought I would just plug it in and see if it can be detected. Surprisingly, it works, it detected the phone and allow me to transfer files. Thanks to the development team for such a great OS!
