Hardy Heron 8.04.1

Hardy Heron humming happily

Hardy Heron 8.04.1 appears to work fine on my Asus Pundit P1 box (AMD dual core, integrated graphics, very quiet). Installed easily and the NVIDIA drivers were downloaded and recognised my no name monitor. Bling works including the wobbly windows (but I tend to use ‘medium’ bling settings in the appearance tab). The ‘buy from magnatune’ button does not work in Rhythmbox, but I have been listening to CBC for the last 10 minutes.

8.04 beta 2 was a little rough around the edges although it ran fine on the Pundit. A clean install of this patch appears to have smoothed off a lot of the burrs. Having separate home and root partitions helps to preserve my data and preferences while installing different flavours of linux.
