Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

Ubuntu sucks

I had the same kernel compiling issues when using ubuntu.
First of all, there were a lot of libs missing needed for compiling a kernel from kernel.org (e.g. libncurses-dev).

I didn't had the problem booting it, that part went fine, only it took me ages to fix all the errormessages during boot.

I'm a dedicated Slackware user myself and Slack's using a clean kernel from kernel.org without any modifications like Fedora and Ubuntu do, and if you compile a kernel under a default slack installation, everyhting goes very smooth and you have it running within a few minutes.

Ubuntu is nice for beginners but that's it, to be honest I don't like a single bit of it, i'll stay with Slackware 10.1
