Unlikely Ubuntu 7.04 from 6.10 there aren’t too many features in the way of new programs, but 7.10 is filled with driver updates.
Some of these important driver updates is a kernel upgrade 2.6.22-14
New printer driver support
the new xorg which everyone has been waiting for.
and to my surprise win modems support.
When i did my upgrade on my Intel based laptops which intel graphics, wireless and sound. I was very shocked when i booted up 7.10 beta to find the Restricted Drivers manager launching. To ask me if I want to install the modem driver. i’ve never used the 56k modem on this laptop ever.
So far there has been a huge amount updates between BETA and RC so if you plan on upgrading to BETA wait until you get your RC version.
Gusty appears to be a strong update with nothing really new and flash but plenty of driver and other little software updates
ok so I got a bit bored. Yesterday i decided to install a planet for the lug members are there are a couple interesting blogs. why? because i was reading planet.linux.org.au and released that i read most of my favourite blogs on this site.. put not all so i wanted to cut down the number of websites i have to visit.
extract the data, and well start reading the INSTALL doc.
Basics are easy enough
upload to your web server (i uploaded everything expect the .bzr folder as it has too many small files in it)
edit the config files
Setup Cron Job
ok the parts which took some time and googling
file permissions – all the .py files didn’t have a execute file permission so my cron jobs came back with permission denied, it seems that the file permissions change when you upload to the ftp server.
playing with making it pretty … well this hasn’t really happened yet.. i might see if someone else wants to edit the css file…
What’s new in this release:
– A variety of fixes to improve Photoshop CS2 support.
– More complete support for device installation in setupapi.
– New Bidi text implementation that doesn’t depend on libicu.
– The usual assortment of Direct3D improvements.
– Beginning of I/O completion ports support.
– Lots of bug fixes.
I actually decided to upgrade to this version and Steam works better on this one compared to 9.45.
That and i wanted to test the Digg Blog it function
