Re: will there be support for ubuntu 10.04?
Is missing graphics driver support the only issue with 10.04 on fit-PC2?
So if one were interested only in the server version, there's no reason not to go to 10.04?
Don't need video, or audio or even a desktop. It would be *nice* to be able to support it through an X-server and something like XDM, but that's not essential. I've been accessing with SSH for a while now with the older versions, using Putty from Windows.
My use is Apache, MySQL, Samba, SMTP/IMAP, DHCP, DNS, etc. All service support for other machines on the LAN. Just need to get things working with a more stable version of Linux. 9.10 was working ok, but it will EOL soon, and I can't reinstall it anyway at the moment...Compulab's repository is giving errors when I try a fresh install.
Speaking of which, if I can't set up Compulab's repositories, does that just mean I lose video and audio capabilities? The desktop came up fine on 9.10 without that...and since I'm not going to use the FIT-PC2 for watching movies or other local media, do I even need the mods in the instructions? Can't I just run the pure Ubuntu release as it comes?
[Added 2010-07-08: I've installed the plain vanilla Ubuntu Server 10.04, and things are working fine so far. Haven't seen anything I need fail anyway. I suspect the WiFi isn't working, but haven't checked...and since I'm wired at the moment, that's ok. Looks like the Compulab repository changes are just for things like HD video, sound and maybe WiFi, which I can live without for a server installation. If I'm wrong, someone please speak up!
