Installation of Ubuntu 6.04 alpha Flight 5

  • Downloaded CD ISO of Ubuntu's Dapper flight 5 (
  • The installer's partitioner allowed me to resize the Windows partition down to 10 GB. I left the IBM recovery partition alone and created three partitions for the Linux system: / (8GB), /usr (8GB), and /home (46.8 GB).
  • The installer recognized the network card (unlike Ubuntu 5.10), and the installer downloaded a fair number of packages.


  • X wouldn't start. I changed the driver in xorg.conf from "ati" to "vesa".
