Ubuntu update #1   no comments

Posted at 5:19 pm in Uncategorized

Here’s a quick update on running 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 on my HP laptop.

Got the native 64 bit version of Skype working. Installed the latest beta version 2.1.0.81-1 and it worked a treat, even video works.

Also got SQLYog working through a Wine type offering called Cross Over. Not sure if it’s a fork of Wine or a completely different piece of software, it just works. I’m running a trial version at the moment but can see myself paying £25 at the end of the trial so I can continue to use SQLYog.

Suspend and hibernate seem to be problematic but not a major issue, since the laptop boots up so much quicker than Windows I can shut down and reboot instead.

Happy days.
