Unfortunately I can't see your images. Which graphics card is installed in your X5000? I'm using a Radeon HD 6870 (BARTS) This should work better, I hope...

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 17.04 Zesty Zapus

I was able to upgrade to 17.04 by using the Debian-based installer for 16.04, then dist-upgrade to 16.10, and again to 17.04. I had to remove packages lsvpd and ppc64-diag because they were causing dpkg configuration issues; they do not seem necessary for normal operation anyway. I also upgraded to ...

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 17.04 Zesty Zapus

Just FYI, tried upgrade from 16.04 to 16.10 again, but this time I wanted to test the GUI upgrade tool. Same results with this cryptsetup issue. I tried to "dpkg -configure -a" but it didn't help. Screenshot for your reference. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Re: Kernel 4.10

Thank you for making kernel update available. Could you provide instruction or give me a link to instructions on how to "install" the kernel update?

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 17.04 Zesty Zapus

I had ubuntu MATE running nicely on my X5000 from the SATA SSD. I tried to test an update on a USB first but I don't think I had enough freespace. Attempted to update to 16.10. Followed instructions posted here . After "apt-get dist-upgrade" the upgrade proceeded, but a few times during the upgrade ...

Re: My experiences with ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS Live USB

I don't think this method gives the new user sudo permissions. Yes, that's correct but it is very easy to add your user to the sudo group. :-) Excellent! I agree that this method is likely easier for most people. I'm still not totally familiar with MATE; before now I almost exclusively used KDE.

Re: My experiences with ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS Live USB

Hi guys, First thanks for the work you do. I know its all volunteer. I have spent a week off and on now trying to make a decent working installation on my X5000. I am not Linux expert but been developing for a long time. I just screwed something up that has forced me back to reinstall as I try to m...
