Ubuntu 8.10 Tidbits

UbuntuThe desktop version of Ubuntu 8.10, which was released just yesterday, comes with a few nice features. Aside from those few new features, there are a few other features that we think you should know, that is if you are new to the world of Ubuntu.

And here they are:

  • In terms of default installed applications, nothing has changed from the previous stable version of Ubuntu. The versions numbers are different, but the applications are the same
  • The installer in the Live CD version is the same 7-step installer from previous version (of Ubuntu). The only difference you will notice in the installer is in Step 4. This step is when disk partitioning takes place, and it now sports some eye candy

  • Ext3, reiserfs, xfs, and jfs are the journaling file systems supported.
  • Encryption of partitions is not supported
  • The Live CD installer does not support LVM. To configure LVM , you will have to download the iso image with the text-based or alternate installer
