The hell??? A Sunday links post on top of the other posts from today? You betcha.
I’m going to have to hold off on the promised post about Ubuntu 9.04. I’ve got it downloaded and burned (I’m not sure why my flash drive with it just sits there like a log’s bump) but I haven’t had a chance to do more than a quick look at it, plus I want to take the upgrade before I report on it. Yes, it looks solid enough that I’m going to snag the upgrade but before you do I strongly recommend that you check your computer with the iso on either a burned CD-ROM or a flash drive. That way you will get a better idea of how well your system will play with the Jackalope.
- Ronnie Tucker: Come grab Issue #23, hot from the digital presses! You need to read the latest issue, I’m just going to give you the link and leave it at that.
- Jonathan Jesse: Successful upgrade from Intrepid to Jaunty. It’s a short post, but Jonathan had an easy time going from Kubuntu 8.10 to Kubuntu 9.04 (both 64-bit versions). He also finds something he really likes, which is why you should read it regardless of which flavor of *Ubuntu you prefer.
- Isabelle Duchatelle: Kill X session in Jaunty Jackalope. The devs have decided that users don’t want to be able to use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace as an emergency way to get out of a frozen session. (Silly devs, we really do need that every now and then.) Luckily Isabelle shows us how to get it back.
- Jun Auza: Easy Way To Save Flash/YouTube Videos on Linux. Yes, Linux users like to not only watch Flash movies, we like to snag them every now and then to our hard drive so we can enjoy it without having to go back to the server to get the vid again. You know what? It’s eeeeeasy to do if you’re a GNU/Linux user.
That’s it for today. Enjoy the end of March, because April is looking pretty nice for the GNU/Linux community. Plus Opening Day is just 8 days away!
