Progress…sort of

October 5, 2007

I had previously wrote about issues I was having with X in Gutsy. I did a reinstall and X still kept locking which leads me to think I am experiencing a hardware issue and a not a software issue. I apologize to Kubuntu and it looks like I’ll be getting a new card soon.

On the other side of things, I am excited for this year’s Western Illinois Techfest . Here is a list of exhibitors and I see the Ubuntu project is being represented. Of course I will be there doing the representing! I requested some CDs from Shipit but I am unsure of their status as the Ship it people prepare for Gutsy. However, Techfest looks like a good deal of fun and there will be door prices and give aways. I am trying to get an Ubuntu disk to everyone but that depends on my supply of CDs. I am buying an Official Ubuntu book (2 ed) and that will be one of the door prizes. See you there!



  1. Out of interest, what is the problem card that you have ?

    Wouldn’t be an ATI Radeon 9250 by some chance ?

  2. No, it is an Nvidia 5400 something or another.
