Edgy Woes During Monitor Upgrade

Filed under
Ubuntu

I’ve had some good things to report on Ubuntu Edgy 6.10 recently. I’ve performed both an upgrade from Ubuntu 6.06 to 6.10 and a clean install of Ubuntu Edgy 6.10. Both have been success stories. I haven’t had anything bad to report about Edgy so far which I guess makes me in a minority judging by the forums I have read in various places. It seems like lots of people have run into problems of some sort or another. In fact their are whole pages dedicated to resolving issues with Ubuntu Edgy, one example being the Ubuntu Edgy Common Problems with Solutions page.

So when I recently purchased a new Dell 1907FP LCD monitor to replace my old CRT monitor I was expecting a fairly painless exercise. After all, I was just replacing a monitor. Surely it couldn’t be that difficult with Ubuntu Edgy, could it? Maybe it was my turn at last to experience some Edgy woes.

Pretty soon I had built my kids their own computer, with “safe” web-browsing, education games, etc. It was many months of playing around with Linux before I learned about Python and started slowly getting more into the programming side of things.
