I have just been blown away by Linux....Again!!!!

Filed under
Linux

Here I was happily fiddling around with my Kubuntu installation and at a critical time when the initrd image was being regenerated our fabled standard of stable electricity supply decided to cut out. Not surprising as it does that every time a mosquito sneezes.

This of course left me with an un-bootable system. While this particular problem is easy to fix with a Kubuntu live/installation CD I thought, "What the fsck" (sometimes you just have to say what the fsck). As I have just recently upgraded my PIII to an AMD 64 X2 why not take this opportunity to go to a 64 Bit OS. So in goes the 64 Bit AMD Kubuntu CD and a quick install over the root partition later I am greeted with my home directory running under the CPU's native number of multiple nibbles (if you know what a nibble is then you are a true geek Smile

Now because I installed Fiesty and because I didn't want to wait for Gutsy I have a few updates to install. Yes you guessed it, this is happening right now as I am typing this article. So instead of watching the progress bar inch forward which is as exciting as watching paint dry I decided to listen to some music.
