The Price I Pay

May 3, 2011

I didn’t hesitate to upgrade to an alpha version. I didn’t read known issues in release note. I didn’t cancel the upgrade even if I saw nVidia driver is to be removed. And when it reported xserver installation failure, there was no way back. Now this is the price I have to pay… The screen freezes even before plymouth shows up.

The binary video drivers -fglrx and -nvidia do not have XServer 1.10 compatibility, so do not function in Alpha 3. We anticipate receiving an updated driver with this support from NVIDIA in the coming weeks, and an updated -fglrx from AMD at some point prior to Natty’s release, but do not know their exact ETAs.

– Hey, simply plan for a full reinstallation from a live CD after the bug-fixed stable version comes out. It’s almost the same as upgrade since Natty removed your chromium browser and GNU octave, right? Say cheeeeeeeeeeese…

– Uh uh, I’m fine. I mean, really. Look I’m now with Windows 7 the other system.
