Breezy Update

I’ve finally completed backups and have successfully installed Breezy Badger, (the October Ubuntu Linux release) on my laptop.

I ran Hoary (the current release) for serveral months before it was out and overall it was rock stable for me. I had some issues with early preview releases of Breezy, but so far everything looks great. I’m installing a tonne of updates and after that I’m going to take a look around and see what there is to see. Here are some things I am going to be looking at/getting up and running:

  • NDISWrapper (done and completely painless with ndisgtk)
  • ACPI support and in particular suspend/resume
  • RestrictedFormats for Breezy. I need my mplayer and codec support.
  • Finding and installing development tools
  • Reconfiguring Evolution (done)
  • Reconfiguring Gaim (done, I’m up to 8 accounts and haven’t bothered to look up my ICQ#)
  • Poking and prodding
