Ubuntu Intrepid Upgrade On Eee PC Continued
By user12607856 on Oct 08, 2008
Regular readers of this blog will remember that I had some problems when I initially tried to do a network upgrade to Intrepid.
Things had got busy recently, so I only returned to this problem last night. I booted up the machine with a wired network connection, and when I got to the login screen (where I couldn't type anything into the User Name field), I entered Control-Alt-F1 to get to a virtual terminal and a text-based login prompt.
After logging in, I did the:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
again, and let it chug away at downloading, unpacking and installing all the new packages. I then rebooted.
The reboot successfully bought me to the gdm login screen and I can now login via the graphical User Name field and get to my desktop. Yippee! Yet another problem solved by just waiting a while and letting things happen.
I don't like the new login music that comes with Intrepid. I'll have to see if I can work out how to put the "old" Hardy jingle back.
I also don't seem to be able to get wireless working, using the previous instructions for the madwifi package that I had. It looks like I'll have to google around again and see what's changed there.
Then I'll need to check out the battery management, web camera and microphone again. Who knows, maybe they are all working nicely now.
