Gutsy & NetBeans
By octav on Feb 02, 2008
I gave VMWare Fusion a try. Smooth install, didn't have to consult the documentation. I also took the opportunity to get Ubuntu Gutsy. As always, the Ubuntu installation is sweet - it just works. I had Vista license, however someone decided to make it theirs and I don't have the media any more.
Once Gutsy was installed, I started looking for development tools and add on packages. apt-get does the trick, but you need to know what's available. The easiest way is to use "Applications | Add/Remove" menu, however many packages are not in Universe and you'll have to look on the website for a list packages.
To my disappointment, NetBeans 6 is still not available for Gutsy and I had to settle for NetBeans 5.5. I'll have to see if this version will be good enough for what I am trying to do - look into database migration issues. I know that the NetBeans folks were shooting for Hardy. I'll have to double check with Honza.
