Linux Maverick Meerkat, the version of Ubuntu slated to be released later this year, brings with it several features and improvements that the Linux community has been eagerly looking forward to. I've taken a look at the blueprints for this next release, and picked out a few of the major items that Linux end-users will be interested in. Here are 5 things to look forward to in Ubuntu 10.10.

I hope one enhancement is that "[Errno 5] Input/output error" is finally gone and I can install it from a LiveCD.

I haven't been able to install any release for a while now. I have a Asus EEEPC 1000HD, doesn't anyone have one of these in the Ubuntu community so this problem can go away.

It's your media fault. It could have happened with a burned Windows CD too. It's not Linux, it's just a message saying it can't read the disk. It is usually caused by under-powered (laser) CD burned, bad CD or dirty lenses.

I have read something similar on the ubuntu forums but I believe there is something wrong with the installer. I have tried install from USB, install from a cd connected via a IDE to USB converter. I read somewhere there was a fault with the "universal USB installer" program not extracting squash fs properly. I have tried unetbootwin. Seems to me the ubuntu release team don't know about this problem or are not bothering to fix this now, because it will be fixed in future (maybe). Would be funny if this occurred when they were sending out cd in the early days. That would have been a big lol.
