Here’s a little tip for anyone considering installing the latest Ubuntu 6.10 “Edgy Eft” – DON’T.
Actually, that’s a bit drastic. You just might not be able to do it in the first place.
You might run into a problem with the installer. Specifically, even when you select a “root” partition, the installer might doggedly insist that there is “no root file system (/).” No matter how much you insist that there REALLY IS a root file system, the installer doesn’t believe it. Inexcusable.
If you still really want to install Ubuntu 6.10, try installing from the alternate install CD. This one supposedly works.
