Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The developers of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution plan to make a new landmark version of the software widely available this week. Ubuntu's public schedule for releasing the software lists 1 June as the date for the new version, code-named 'Dapper Drake', to be made public. The milestone release will be officially supported by the project for a longer period than previous versions, and will be billed as suitable for enterprise use.

Hmmm, no, in fact my post was factually correct.

Install eitherr Automatix or EasyUbuntu and both of these scripts ask if you would like to have DMA enabled.

Quick test.

Get a new machine, install Ubuntu, install Automatix, and do not select enable DMA. Play a DVD. Re-run Automatix and select enable DMA. Play the same DVD. This time you will notice that it plays without being choppy.

Have you tried this with dapper? If so, could you please file a bug with the output of

lspci -n


sudo hdparm -I /dev/cdrom

and the contents of /var/log/dmesg ? To the best of our knowledge, all hardware should now have DMA enabled by default unless it's on a known-bad list.
