Ubuntu Drapper Drake Installation from Live CD

Filed under
Ubuntu

After booting the Live CD, the desktop contains some shortcuts - one of which is to start the installation. When launching the installation, the first screen is a warning about Dapper being beta. It specifically notes that the installation may involve resizing partitions - something you don’t really want to do with beta software! Since I’ve nothing on these disks to lose, I’ll go ahead. I wouldn’t recommend this for most users though, I’d suggest you wait until the final release in June!

While I love the fact the installation is now inside Ubuntu, the actual wizard steps are currently quite messy. I suspect this is simply because it’s still in beta, and it’ll be given a polish before the release in June! The first screen lets you choose an installation language (though I’m not sure you’d have gotten this far if it didn’t match the language Ubuntu is currently appearing in!).

    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
