Gutsy Gibbon getting better…

Tribe-2 of Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) was released today. For those that aren’t familiar, Canonical/Ubuntu refer to “Release Candidates” as “Tribes.” That makes this release, for the rest of us normal people, Release Candidate 2.

For more information read Martin Pitt’s post to the ubuntu-devel-announce mailing list.

Here’s a list to the LiveCD’s:

Arrr… If it be a mirror ye be lookin’ for, try here instead

Some caveats from Matt’s post:

“The desktop installer on the LiveCD may hang when choosing manual partitioning.”
Solution is close the installer (wait to force if necessary),

sudo killall ubuquity


sudo ubiquity

If you enable restricted drivers for your video card while using the LiveCD then choose to run the installer it will not properly install X. Solution is to restart the LiveCD and not use the restricted drivers before running the installer.

Compiz-Fusion is included and enabled by default but may suck slighty. If it sucks, whine about it here.
