~Froggy~

I can assure you that I NEVER had any intention to "blast" you... Truly ...

I was just trying to bring out that Ray is just one person, who has a life outside of Linux, and as such, can only do so many things. I did not know that Lucid did not work on Ray's laptop. On my Gateway laptop, Lucid works like a champ... Lucid also runs on my new box that I just built, while SEVERAL other Linux distros choke on it. I believe that it is a video problem, but every distro that is based on Lucid (Mint, Ubuntu, and PhoenixOS) runs with nary a problem. Hardy doesn't even have the NIC drivers that my Asus motherboard has...

Anyway... I am GLAD that you are back... and as far as I am concerned... no harm, no foul Cool Cool Cool

Harvey

Lucid works on my laptop, but these problems crop up:

LinDVD will not install in Lucid

Powermanager will not work in Lucid: so if you have a laptop it automatically goes in battery saving mode which sucks, cuz then you don't get the full speed of your processor.

Nvidia is kinda quirky in Lucid, while in Karmic it JUST WORKS :-)

Update: nvidia is now fixed and works flawlessly i just updated nvidia using the updated file from nvidia site.
Now if anyone can get LinDVD and Powermanager to install in Lucid Let me know. Those r the only 2 things stopping me from switching to Lucid.

LinDVD work on Lucid? Not that I know of. But nothin has worked on Lucid for me. My nVidia drivers crap out and when I try to chmod anything my system will crash. As Ray also said. Powermanager is a joke on Lucid, even on my desktop.

Karmic <> LTS...

Yeah... I didn't think Karmic was a long term support version... thanks for verifying that fact.

I always lean towards the LTS variants, forgot about Karmic being LTS. Rolling Eyes

Does anyone recall which (LTS) release booted up lightening fast (even on old clunker computers)?
It would have been either Karmic or Lucid 'cuz we're currently running Hardy (on most critters).

Karmic
In my experience the latest release of ubuntu (10.04 / Lucid Lynx) has the fastest boot time of any ubuntu build in the history of ubuntu (kept track of boot speeds)...

Lucid is very slow on my system. I have a dual-core celeron with 4gigs ram and start up is almost 12secs slower then Karmic. Firefox load time is about 4secs slower in Lucid. Plus I hate havin Ubuntu One running constantly without my permission, which also causes a few lags for me.

I am running a custom version of Lucid right now with KDE 3.5 and boot time is better than any other Linux or Windows based OS on this box it boots to a login prompt in under 20 seconds.

One of the upcoming surprises:

Interesting, managed to get latest Kopete to run under latest PhoenixOS build with kde 3 Very Happy

http://www.raccomputers.com/kopete.png

Closest thing I can think of, is because I use Kubuntu kde 4 as a base then strip away kde 4, and put in kde 3 using trinity repos; somehow it retained some of KDE 4 compatibility.

Things are cooking Very Happy

That doesn't work on me anymore. It used to when I drank beer. I quit in 1985. I really don't miss it. Seems like I did at first. I'm talking about the beer not the gas bombs. I used to blame the dog.

About a 100 years ago I had a lot of fish. I liked neons. I had a beta that was so tame you could put your finger in the bowl and he would come over and rub around it very lovingly.

I have a fondness for Swordtails and Plecostomus fish. I currently have 2 20gallon tanks up and a 45gallon that will be put up as soon as I can make a spot for it.
