UPDATE: Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 – gold

There were some bugs with the release candidate. Some will be fixed before the gold release, some will have to wait. Here’s a list bugs:

  • Netbook remix doesn’t respond after suspend
    Maybe Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 shouldn’t come with Netbook Remix?
  • Bluetooth utilities have been removed
    Will be fixed with gold
  • «Incorrect password» after lock screen / suspend
    This will be fixed or worked around
  • The RC comes with two bug reports
    This is no problem. It has been fixed. It’s just reports. They will be removed in 8.04.1 though
  • Problems with /etc/sources.list meaning the upgrade manager doesn’t work
    This has to be fixed before being released
  • Mic problems with 901 & 1000
    8.04.1 will go gold before this is fixed
  • It should be easy to choose between netbook remix mode and regular desktop mode
    Yes it should. This will not hold the release of 8.04.1 back

    Great your contribution for eeepc users. I tried vmware player and virtualbox to run windows XP on a P900. May be if I change xandros4 to ubuntu I will have more returns. Thanks

    Great work with Ubuntu Eee…

    By the way, I’ve been trying to run it with VMWare on a Vista host, but I can’t get past Busybox. I even tried some tips for changing the bios.bin, but that didn’t work either (http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=3394)

    It’d be great to know what I’m doing wrong with it. Any tips? Or know where there’s a tutorial?
