I’m running the Ubuntu 10.04 beta
I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.
I needed to get the laptop back into usable shape, and I did that by installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS beta 2.
While trying to do an update on my FreeBSD 7.3-release installation, well into the third day of the system building everything from source, I stopped that upgrade and tried to do one from packages only.
Nope, it didn’t work.
I still couldn’t tell you how to do a binary-only (or even binary/ports mixture) upgrade of the applications in a FreeBSD system and have it work. There are many ways to do it, it seems, and I must’ve picked the wrong one.
Anyhow, my FreeBSD system started working in a less-than-optimal manner. I backed up what I could (actually I uploaded my FreeBSD-created files via FTP since rsync crashed the box) and then decided to go with Ubuntu Lucid.
