I can understand my FC6 having this problem, but a brand new
Ubuntu 11.10 has the same problem, with a standard install.
At least the install DID work - the second time. First time
hung, no reason. FC6 ran youtube vids just fine and dandy.
Ubuntu messes up the color horribly.
Network setup was primative, or I can't find stuff that's hiding
somewhere. Actually hadda do the /etc/hosts thing by hand.
I'm still digging into the new U. Added C++ compiler stuff
and the X11 dev stuff. New compiler errror-ed and warning-ed
a lot more than the old one did, so that's the fixit for
today. Also had to work around the nanny-U to run as root.
So far, I'm not impressed. But, it's on a test box and I'm on
a learning curve, so...
