Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For over six years I have been hunting for a Linux distro that would allow me to replace my Windows installation. I've tried many versions of RedHat and Mandrake, and more recently, Gnoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Knoppix. In my evaluations, I would start with high hopes that the latest and greatest distro would install smoothly, support my hardware, and create a genuinely usable system, but none of them really worked--until now. I recently came across the first distro that satisfied all my requirements: Ubuntu.

network trouble
by Julian on Tue 8th Feb 2005 09:46 UTC

I recently upgraded from Ubuntu Warty to Hoary, but unfortunately I kept the old versions of all initscripts (I assumed the apt-get defaults were sane and the changes were trivial).
Now my network interfaces fail to start on boot, and i have to bring them up manually each time i boot.
Apart from that I'm totally happy with Ubuntu, and I almost totally abandoned my BeOS and Gentoo installations, which I use mainly for DJing now (my Gentoo is tailored towards low latency).
