UBUNTU experience

I installed ubuntu . This was really a great experience. I inserted the install CD during boot time. I pressed enter . And It tried to configure DHCP . But as we all know that none of our internet connections are running on dhcp . It couldn't succeed . So I choose the option " do not configure network this time". Partitioning as always was slightly difficult for newbies but those who have an empty partition ... It will be very easy . It asked for a username and password . I gave them as "pavi' and "*******" ( Just kiddin) . Afterwards It automatically restarted ,ejected CD and over there is the new Linux standing before of me.
The coolest thing about ubuntu is the support I got ...
I could run my C- Program on ubuntu which kaushik has been complaining .."Arrey Yaar ubuntu mein C program compile nehi hota hai" It is a matter of 3 minutes I got My c program running !!

I first ran the command # apt-get install build-essential This command will build the essential libraries for c compilation.

#include main() { printf("Hello To UBUNTU"); }
Compiled it with the command
gcc -o hello.o hello.c
Afterwards ran the program

Got the output


Immediately I opened Gaim and sent an instant message to kaushik about my success story. He can later check this blog if he has any doubts!!!

i'm currently very happy with gentoo and couldn't be happier. :)

and coming to the bsd-partitioning thing it's quite simple.
basically it's all about partition tables types and terminology.
i'm using the dos-partition table scheme (primary partitions, extended partitions)
when you use bsd-partition schemes you talk about slices and dices (sclices contain dices). now if you want to have a bsd-slice in a dos-partition table you have to allow the bsd-installer to create a sclice just like a primary partition.(not logical partition etc.)

i'd recommend that you give BSDs a try.
