Ubuntu / Kubuntu / Edubuntu 6.06 LTS Beta 2

Posted in Development Software, Linux, Site News


Just one week after the release of Ubuntu 6.06 Beta 1, the developers have released Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu 6.06 LTS Beta 2.

The change log since the previous release of Ubuntu Beta 1 is:

  • If the Desktop CD installer crashes, a signal handling issue in Beta 1 meant that it was possible for its subprocesses to run wild, which was reported to damage partition tables in some cases. This has been corrected.
  • A number of crashes in the Desktop CD installer have been fixed, including a keyboard selector crash when a country without a default keyboard was chosen, a ubuntu crash on entering a non-ASCII name, a language selector crash when choosing certain languages, and a Kubuntu crash in partitioning for certain languages. If the installer still crashes, it will now try to provide useful information that we can use to fix the problem, so please use this release in preference to any earlier one.
  • Atheros wireless network cards are now usable after installation.
  • Installation to ReiserFS filesystems should now work.

In addition, the stability of this release has been enhanced after a week’s of hard work development.
