My love affair with Ubuntu took a step back about a week ago. I tried to upgrade my video card and the kernel at the same time. Not a good idea. I expected to get this done with nifty scripts and GUIs, but found myself back in the land of Xconfigurator or whatever it’s called these days (for debian-based distributions like Ubuntu, dpkg-reconfigure ).
So I went back to the old video card. I’ll wait a few weeks to see what happens with the kernel; apparently there’s some issues with kernel 2.6.20-16 and nvidia drivers.
No other Ubuntu foolishness to report, though fonts still suck.
