Ubuntu Drapper Drake Installation from Live CD

Filed under
Ubuntu

After booting the Live CD, the desktop contains some shortcuts - one of which is to start the installation. When launching the installation, the first screen is a warning about Dapper being beta. It specifically notes that the installation may involve resizing partitions - something you don’t really want to do with beta software! Since I’ve nothing on these disks to lose, I’ll go ahead. I wouldn’t recommend this for most users though, I’d suggest you wait until the final release in June!

While I love the fact the installation is now inside Ubuntu, the actual wizard steps are currently quite messy. I suspect this is simply because it’s still in beta, and it’ll be given a polish before the release in June! The first screen lets you choose an installation language (though I’m not sure you’d have gotten this far if it didn’t match the language Ubuntu is currently appearing in!).

    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
