Installing Ubuntu Dapper Drake
Posted by isilanes on October 1, 2006
After failing misserably to run Xgl in Debian Etch, I decided to install Ubuntu Dapper Drake (which allegedly supports it) in a spare partition of my hard disk. Below is the timeline of such an instalation:
Turn on computer, insert Ubuntu CD. Choose “run the CD as a LiveCD“. See it loading.
The LiveCD has booted, and I already have a fully functioning GNOME desktop. I spend 2 minutes playing around.
Select a link for “install Ubuntu on the hard disk”, and answer a couple of questions (username, password, language, time zone, keyboard layout), and off it goes…
It starts copying files to the hard disk.
Everything done. Asked whether I wanted to go on using the LiveCD by now, or directly restart to use the Ubuntu installed on disk. I choose the latter.
I am presented with GDM, which asks me to log in.
I am already inside GNOME, running my freshly installed Ubuntu OS!!
4 minutes for LiveCD working 100%, 20 minutes for full installation.
