Ubuntu, the fun continues ...

Following on John's most excellent series of articles on Hardy and the T60p here, I've continued to play with Hardy on my own dear Stinkpad.

John's hints re Envy-NG were very useful, although I'm still seeing intermittent XServer crashes - they manifest as a black screen, followed by the login prompt, meaning that apps. such as Firefox, Notes etc. simply curl up and die. Not too sure why .............

I'd tried to get VMware Player / Server / Workstation going before, but with little or no luck - I did get the infamous looping .vmware.config.pl symptom ( as per John's post ) in the past, so had kinda given up.

I've just taken the plunge again, but this time used the beta of VMware Workstation 6.5 aka e.x.p build-91182.

Just about to give my first VM a whirl .............
