Note: Please buy a USB2 stick. I had some boot problems with USB3 sticks. I recommend a 64GB Sandisk USB2 stick.

I'm remembering Trusty Tahr.

Will any of the four versions of 16.04 that are now ready for download work on an AmigaOne X1000?

Of course, System>Admin>Software Updater then select [Partial Upgrade] works. It worked well for me. Verified with "sudo apt-get" after using Software Updater! :)

Wow! Stuff kept coming for a couple hours! Then left me with a screen with a big Ubuntu (MATE?) logo half off screen on the right and no cursor arrow or anything. I was very worried, but when I did a cold reboot it came up OK.

I haven:t had a chance to fully explore, but one negative result is that my keyboard is messed up. As can be seen at the beginning of the preceding sentence, apostrophe/single quote now comes out as :, and Shift^2 is not @, but ", which makes it hard to type an email address. I imagine most people know how to fix that, but I don:t.

I was looking through the Welcome thing, and under Getting Started I found Language & [Shift^6, that & is!] Input, and thought that at last I would be able to get Japanese input set up, but when I clicked on Japanese, "Package fcitx-mozc isn't available." Clicked on Korean and that one seemed to work, except it brought a lot of .exe files like it thought I was Windows or something. I haven't checked to see if I really can write Korean yet.

Thanks Christian!

The Upgrade went extremely smooth. Been using Ubuntu Mate 16.04 all weekend and received 1 Security and 1 Welcome Update today. It is quite stable and everything is working great. All the hard work paid off. Running stable and great on AmigaOne X1000 kernel - 4.1.20 Radeon 6670 HD. Just wanted to post a positive result on the new release. Amazing!

Cheers!!

John

Hi John,

Great news! Have a lot of fun with ubuntu MATE 16.04. :-)

Could you please test the RC5 of Kernel 4.6? I cross compiled it yesterday and I don't know if it boots.

Thanks in advance,

Christian
