Well. I’ve been thinking and suddenly I came up with an idea of writing a few sentences about new (1.1) version of Jolicloud. I must admit that it is really improved comparing to version 1.0. The upgrade brought us many interesting and pretty useful changes, that made this system working better.
I was attending in the two upgrade approaches. One on my computer and the second on the Asus Eee PC netbook of my friend. On none of them upgrade went well. In my case (Windows installation version) it crashed, when I went, following the advice displayed on the screen, to the kitchen for my coffee. When I got back there was black screen with shell and some error like: “Something went wrong. Dropping to shell”. Well, no chance of repair. After the reboot the system crushed. After the reinstall on my Windows, everything is fine.
On the netbook it was even funnier. It was clean install made from the ISO image, so it was like normal GNU/Linux distribution. Upgrade failed of course. My friend tried making an upgrade from the shell, which took us about 6 hours for all the packages download, install and configure. After then the system shown the message about error of the package manager, which could not install jolicloud-common package. After another hours of running some repairs the system started, but there was no program bar on the top. I still don’t know how it ended. So, if you can, just make clean install of Jolicloud, instead of counting on the upgrade system.
Now let’s see some improvements made in this new version. (more…)
