There are several problems in this version.. My PC has Nvidia 9400GT graphics card.. Ubuntu is not detecting it at all.. When I go to apperance and click option for advance graphics option, It says.. You dont have availaible resources.. :wall:

Even I had some issues with installing Nvidia drivers. Gave some error, don't remember what it was. But all worked after a few more trials, rebooting etc.

Now going to install 9.04 in laptop. :thumb:

You may need to install it via System > Administration > Hardware Drivers
 
Which filesystem are you guys using on version 9.04 - ext3 or ext4?
 
I am using EXT4 , works well for me

Extents
Extents are introduced in ext4 to replace the traditional block mapping scheme used by ext2/3 filesystems. An extent is a range of contiguous physical blocks, improving large file performance and reducing fragmentation. A single extent in ext4 can map up to 128MB of contiguous space with a 4KB block size.[1] There can be 4 extents stored in the Inode. When there are more than 4 extents to a file the rest of the extents are indexed in a Htree.
 


Finally i installed Ubuntu. But after i install, i had only 800x600 screen resolution. But i need 1024x768, what do i need to install. I am not able to installed graphice card from Mother board CD. I am using Asus. :huh:
 
Apparently VIA chips arent known for their linux friendliness

Youll have to try manually configuring it , goto Terminal , Applications >> Accesories >> Terminal , type

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
then your root password

it will open the xorg file in the text editor

You might have something like this

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Defaultdepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Virtual 640 480
Modes "640x480@60" "800x600@60"
EndSubSection
EndSection

In modes add "1024x768@60"
Also try changing "vesa" in the device section to "via"

Save and restart
