Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release (or Kubuntu, if that's your thing). Canonical has just released Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. This is a long term support release, meaning its supported period is far longer than that of normal releases. It comes with the latest and greatest the Free software world has to offer, while also adding some Ubuntu-specific features, of course.

There is a bug in the Grub2 install that prevents the option of dual-booting (your other OS will not show up in boot menu). If you have already installed 10.04, they are releasing an update that will take care of this issue. If you haven't installed, and you are dual-booting, you might want to wait a day. Shortly they are creating a re-spin without this issue.

Really? Works fine for me with Windows 7.

Were you a new install or an upgrade?

Or perhaps they've been able to get the re-spins out there faster than they thought.

Either way, glad to see it works for you. I upgraded a couple weeks earlier (so I wouldn't have to fight the download fest). Also, I am going to purchase a netbook soon and I will install it there.

Go Lucid... sounds like good advice.

The bug which cause the other OS entry to be omitted was not a GRUB2 bug, it was an installer bug which executed grub after blocking the "visibility" of the other partitions/OSes.
The bug was fixed before the release.
