A while ago I posted about how one can install Kubuntu on a netbook without cd-rom device. Although there were some issues on the NC10 still it worked pretty neat. Two days ago Kubuntu Jaunty (9.10) was released. I updated my NC10 with this version and this is what I discovered:
- Video artifacts in KDE login screen disappeared
- Speakers are muted when plugging in earphones
- Getting Wifi to work is a lot harder than the old Kubuntu version (especially 802.1x). I have to use knetworkmanager to make it work (sometimes it does not work at all).
- The screen brightness can be set with the slider of the energy widget.
