Just FYI, i am planning a distro comparison between the big names once i get back from this weekend. The new Ubuntu will be in the comparison also.

Also, i am giving serious thought to doing an add-on thread of "how to fix common linux problems" thread.

sound good?



Just a note change the name in the title from Solo to Villain.

The new Ubuntu 10.04 kinda sucks - so many people have problems with it - especially installation problems

really? 10.04 gave me no problems at all. installs worked fine, everything was smooth and good.

same here but I don't like how updating the kernel effs up my whole boot setup.

Here's my setup:

In bios, the boot order is SDB first (and then SDA)

SDB contains a Bios Boot Partition containing the files needed to boot grub which is in sdb1 (or something)

and SDA contains the Windows boot manager etc. I chainload the Windows boot manager from Grub2.

Whenever grub2 or the kernel updates, grub2 gets installed in SDA overwriting the windows boot sector.

is there any way to correct this?
