Laptop Upgrade to Nevada b47 - The Next Day
By gbrunett-Oracle on Sep 01, 2006
Several hours into day 1 of the upgraded laptop and no significant issues to report. The complete installation went smoothly and all of my productivity tools appear to have retained their settings and are working as expected including:
- Firefox (Browser)
- Thunderbird (E-mail)
- Evolution (Calendar)
- gaim (Instant Messaging) with OTR
- StarOffice 8 (Office Suite)
This is in addition to the other tools I mentioned in my previous post, including: frkit, Nvidia drivers, punchin, pkg_get, and inetmenu. The Nvidia drivers are correctly pushing my screen image (by default) to both the laptop LCD and my external flatscreen. What more count I ask for?
During the course of my new installation, I set aside enough space to install Trusted Extensions, so that will be my next big step, but before I do that, I am going to put the laptop through its paces for a few days to make ensure everything continues to work as expected.
You really have to love it when things just work!
