Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Beta released

Hello clububuntu readers, I have great news for you! Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Beta is now available for download.

Some of the great features in Ubuntu 9.04 include: ext4 support, new login screen, some new wallpapers, faster boot-time and updated versions of software.

NOTE: Install this version of Ubuntu only on your Personal Computer. Because it is still in Beta you might experience some bugs.

To upgrade your existing installation simply press Alt+F2 and type "update-manager -d" (of course, without the quotes). A window will pop out telling you a new release is available. Press upgrade and wait.

If you want to install Ubuntu 9.04 Beta from scratch on your PC or on a virtual machine please see the download links below.

Download links:

    8. Neat.

      Kubuntu can be downloaded from piratebay or just search Google.

    9. 64-bit version resulted in system reset when kernel started to load, kernel load message and then boom reset. Maybe due to ATI HD4650 with two monitors and kernel mode switch code?

      It also overwrote grub from my other linux without asking.

      It did not ask if my system time was set to UTC (it is) so it overwrote the CMOS time.

      I'll try the alt-install next time.

    14. Hello Admin,

      are you sure that's possible. I tried to upgrade a wubi installation using the upgrade manager -d.

      I shows the availability of jaunty 9.04 beta. If start press the update button, the update process start and everything seems fine.

      But after the reboot, i still see ubuntu 8.10 screen, also display kernel version is the old 2.6.27-14 version.

      If I check with uname or. lsb_release I got references to 8.10.


      Any help, highly appreciated.

      Mike

    15. you can upgrade your wubi installation using the procedure you followed. It should work fine. I am sure the installation worked fine but the system has some problems detecting your version.

    16. Do you need to upgrade the 9.04 Apha to Beta or does it upgrade by simply pulling all the new updates each day? I have 9.04 Alpha installed and it has been updated daily since it was installed....is it now 9.04 Beta??

      ReplyDelete
    17. I guess it will upgrade automatically but I suggest you to check for updates, just to be sure you already have beta installed

    18. Is there a way to use ext4 without a new install?

    19. I think you will need to reinstall your ubuntu system
