A few problems with my newly installed Edgy25 Sep 2006
After installing Edgy Eft a couple of days ago I noticed a weird behavior of Network Manager. My wireless card was identified as a wired network card after resuming from suspend. Today I got some time to search for the bug on Launchpad and it seems it is a known bug:
Anyways I added my comments, and will be following it closely.
Update: It seems there is a fix for the bug… I’m running with it now, and so far it seems fine.
Update: I found out why VMware wouldn’t start and made a post about it.
I haven’t been able to get VMware up and running yet. I get this error when trying to start VMware:
je@rohan:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vmware start Password: VMware Server is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured for the running kernel. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command: /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl.
The modules have been compiled for my current kernel and I’m sure it has been compiled with the same gcc version (if that have any effect?).
uname -a Linux rohan 2.6.17-9-generic #2 SMP Fri Sep 22 10:41:59 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
dpkg -l |grep linux-headers-2.6.17-9-generic ii linux-headers-2.6.17-9-generic 2.6.17-9.23
cat /proc/version Linux version 2.6.17-9-generic (root@rothera) (gcc version 4.1.2 20060920 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.1-13ubuntu3)) #2 SMP Fri Sep 22 10:41:59 UTC 2006 (Ubuntu 2.6.17-9.23-generic)
Compiler is gcc 4.1, which is the only one I have installed at the moment:
ls -l /usr/bin/gcc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2006-09-23 03:37 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.1
/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl as root (with sudo) doesn’t report any errors. The install seems to be exactly like on Dapper.
I really cant figure out why it doesn’t work. But besides these 2 things, Edgy is looking great. I feel suspend and resume is a bit faster than with Dapper. Startup and login is faster. All other things looks the same to me… and that isn’t a bad thing :)
