What not to expect of Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1

Upgrading from 8.04 to 8.04.1

“What?! That sucks!” Yeah, I know, but no one have taken the time to make debs of the changes implemented into 8.04.1, which means the edits are hard coded into the iso and you won’t be able to upgrade. You will have to do a fresh install.

When will it be released

As soon as Adams new kernel is ready, Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 goes gold. It is ready within a couple of days.

    Gerrt, yes, Ubuntu Eee will be available in the same languages as Ubuntu – and that’s a whole lot. Heia Norge!

    For someone already running Ubuntu EEE 8.04 with adamm’s custom kernel, (and it’s fully tweaked), will the 8.04.1 installation provide any more functionality or compatibility with a model 901?

    Is it everything working in the 901 Charles, any issue to be commented with that config ?

    What about boot time ?

    Thanks

    Thomas, I don’t mind at all!

    Charles, in short: yes :)

    Anonymous, I haven’t seen any tests yet, but I’ll be sure to post them when people start benchmarking

    Hi Jon,

    Great distro, marvellous work! I have an eeePC 1000H and am having problems with the touchpad. Is there anyway to disable ‘tap-to-click’? I’m new to Linux and it’s infuriating constantly clicking when I don’t mean to!

    […] to Ubuntu to turn it into Ubuntu Eee. Not many changes were applied in this first release (but the 8.04.1 release is awesome) and it’s sad if we go around fooling people. 27% thougth we had made many changes. […]
