Re: [ntb-linux] Moved from Slackware to Ubuntu
- Well, that's not a fun way to spend a weekend. Lots of sympathy from me. :)
The upside is that you will be more in sync with our observations. Obviously there won't be any from me as I'm still on wine-1.0. If it works . . .

Having the apt repository available made for an interesting read, and a few new packages to play with. It's too easy to waste time looking over all the goodies that are available.
I have a PC with Ubuntu, but I only fire it up on occasion, so it will be much more handy this way.
Hopefully we can make more progress this way.
