Configuring 64 Studio 3.0

Submitted by Tim on Mon, 07/27/2009 - 21:11

Just to complete this installation blog, I have made some notes about some of the bits that will need updating in the Manual. Gone from the Desktop are the Computer, Home folder and Wastebasket icons. I'll have to change the picture under Selections and Icons then. Need to add 'Education - Ear training' to the Applications menu and 'Other' - not quite sure how to describe those applications, Sound recorder is fairly obvious I suppose. 'Desktop' is now called 'System' and 'Lock Screen'.

Right, so I rebooted my computer with the 64 Studio installer in the DVD drive.

The Ubuntu splash screen came up immediately. So we are using the Ubuntu installer. It all runs very fast off the DVD, so I was ready to start partitioning in no time at all.

Installing 64studio again

I'm going to re-install 64 Studio on my old music box. It hasn't been online for a couple of months and I discovered that the ethernet card wasn't being recognised for some reason. I tried various things to no avail, then thought about the fact that this computer has been moved several times since I was last online and I wondered if the card was loose or something. So I took the side of the box and relocated the network card to another slot and guess what? It worked!

Testing ... testing ...

I'm mostly posting this to test my blog aggregator out. Oh heavens! can someone remind me how to set the spellchecking language in SludgeFerret to British English? But also because I'm about to take my life in my hands and install 64 Studio 3.0 on my music box and also hopefully test out the latest MediaStation build. It's going to be lots of fun I can tell.
