Oke, that’s it. Ubuntu Jaunty up and running. After hardly two hours of installing and configuring it’s done. I have Ubuntu up and running. With zsh, Firefox 3.5, OpenOffice 3.1 (although I never use it), all the VPN connections I need, TeX Live, Mutt, ext4, XFCE 4.6, Wifi, webcam and all the things I forgot.
I didn’t need Google, hack it or whatever. Just configure it the way I want. Out of the box, no problems.
