Taking advantage of the fact that days ago I installed the beta of Ubuntu 9.04 I took some screenshots of the process in question, as it will not change much from the final version, so it will be valid for when it is available.
For those who want to install the beta it is mandatory to say that its installation is not advisable in production environments, although I’m testing it and these days it hasn’t presented me with bugs, but it’s worth clarifying that it’s a beta, not the final version, and it may still have bugs to fix, anyway if you’re a anxious, like me, you can download the beta version of Ubuntu 9.04 here »Jaunty Jackalope»
Hard Disk: WD 120Gb. IDE, partitioned EXT4 system, 15 GB. By root directory (/) the rest for the user partition (/ home) and swap partition (/ swap) 2Gb.
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 × 2 4200+
Motheboard: Asus Asus M2N-MX chipset NVIDIA GeForce 6100 / NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP
We place the Live-cd and configure the vis setup for the pc to start from the cdrom, the first thing we will see will be this
we choose Spanish
The options we are interested in are the first two, “Try Ubuntu without altering the computer»The live-cd will start and we can, in addition to testing the distribution, install it and«to Install Ubuntu |»The actual installation will start.
I always choose the first one because while installing I can use the distribution.
When I finish loading the cd we will see this screen
Double-click the desktop icon Install …
We choose our area, Buenos Aires is seen a little higher on the map 🙂
The installation wizard already suggests the most convenient keyboard layout for us in the dialog we can try it and if it were not ideal, we could change it.
In the next step we get to partitioning the disk
I chose the options of specifying the partitions manually so that I can make one partition for the file system (/) and another for the user (/ home) as seen in the image below I already have an OS in the first hard drive (sda) and Ubuntu 9.04 will be installed on the second 120 gb drive. (Sdb)
Double click on “free space” and we started to define the partitions, although I think it was my hand and could have been less, 15 gb for the root partition, rest of the disk for / home, ext4 system, the swap partition I have one on the first disk so I will use this one.
Next step, enter your name, username, password, computer name, and choose the option to automatically enter or request password for login.
Option to migrate settings from another installation, in my case it gives me the ability to import settings from Gaim, Firefox and Evolution, mine never worked for me, if anyone knows how to make this work I will appreciate that m ‘say it 🙂
We are almost done, what follows is a summary of what the installation will be, last chance to review everything.
We just have to click install and the process will begin.
After a few minutes the installation will complete and we can restart the system to start using Ubuntu 9.04 or if we want we can continue to use the Live-cd.
If you got here you have successfully installed Ubuntu 9.04, just reboot and enjoy! 🙂
