Wrestling Match with Ubuntu #3453

Nov 9th, 2008 | By | Category: Random Musings

Well with the recent upgrade to 8.10 Intepid has come a few wonderful bugs.. The main one is that all of Nvidia’s new drivers for 8.10 are only alphas and dont’ work worth a damn.. Just spend 2.5 hours going over and pulling my hair out until I found found this article on UbuntuGeek that fixed it.. The worst part is that it wasn’t all that different than what I was doing for the past two hours and if this fixed it then I should have fixed it a long time ago but it is like it just decided it was time to let me back into my computer..

Sigh, so now I’m up for an extra 2 hours just to make up for this lost time.. Oh well, I got 6.5 hours of sleep last night so I am rested enough for another long haul and maybe 3 hours of sleep tonight!

Need to put together Dhruv’s wiki stuff and get him all setup as I was kind enough to give him an assignment that is going to be 20 manhours of work due on wednesday, then I need to get cracking hard on this concept document for our new project.. Need a concept, proposal and design document done by friday so it’ll be a long haul if I don’t start now
