Okay, he is trying to get support for an older version of Ubuntu. Dapper
is not the current version of Ubuntu. Init system drives the driver
initialization. Drivers not properly being loaded is exactly in the init
I can't seem to find any references to abh@xxxxxxxxxx on any ubuntu.com,
including lists.ubuntu.com or or ubuntuforums.org
Original message say he searched and found nothing.
I have searched ubuntu forums to no avail. My network connection
has slowed down considerably since I installed Ubuntu Dapper
(6.06.1 LTS) I have disabled ipv6 in /etc/aliases and Firefox,
still slow by about 50%.
What does that tell you? No he never asked the questions. I find no
references to his e-mail address on lists.u.c or any "*hmeda" user or
any signatures in ubuntuforums. Not to mention I've found several
threads that address this specific issue. I don't think he has good
faith when telling us he looked.
I think this comes down to the fact that he is a bad question asker and
not even in the proper venue. Doesn't know how to search and I believe
his real problem comes down to DNS resolution issues or /var issues or
So, AFAIC, we have been duped and he garners nothing more than a "Hey
install Edgy, until then don't come back" pretty soone if he waits long
enough, it'll be a "Hey install Fiesty, until then don't come back"
His excuse is "3 years of security support". Big deal, Woody had nearly
4.5 years of security support. The LTS releases from Ubuntu are
supported by Ubuntu, not Debian. I am not at all ready to support some
thing foreign to Debian for 3 years. Unless he pays cash on the barrel
head. Then I will fix the problem.
And last but far from least, Ubuntu has a significantly different init
system than Debian right now. PLUS they install zeroconf by default and
causes headaches every where.
One other thing, *IF* he changed /var to a separate filesystem after the
install, there are some significant problems that will occur. Like; a
network interface not coming up properly, or a DNS resolution issue to
name a couple. These come back to the divergence of Ubuntu from Debian
as the Debian helpers don't know about the /var/run and /var/lock
issues. I've dealt with this problem numerous times with Ubuntu Dapper.
I know more about Ubuntu Dapper and Edgy than I'd like to admit, but
still he is not asking in the right venue.
I think it's a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one's self. One
day the house smells of fresh bread, the next of smoke and blood. One
day you faint because the gardener cuts his finger off, within a week
you're climbing over corpses of children bombed in a subway. What hope
can there be if that is so? I tried to die near the end of the war. The
same dream returned each night until I dared not to go to sleep and grew
quite ill. I dreamed I had a child, and even in the dream I saw it was
my life, and it was an idiot, and I ran away. But it always crept onto
my lap again, clutched at my clothes. Until I thought, if I could kiss
it, whatever in it was my own, perhaps I could sleep. And I bent to its
broken face, and it was horrible...but I kissed it. I think one must
finally take one's life in one's arms.
