Ubuntu Jaunty Jackapole 9.04

March 13, 2009


For the first time , I would like to introduce Linux Operating System as our main subject of discussion today. Recently , Canonical Ltd has introduced Ubuntu Jaunty Jackapole 9.04 released in alpha version (testing) by this month.This ubuntu version cannot used in a production system , just for testing purpose only.The Ubuntu Jaunty Jackapole will be released in full version in 23rd of this coming April , 2009. It uses the latest stable kernel that is kernel 2.6.28-13. The kernel support the use of the ext4 filesystem , a new file system that is more efficient , more faster than ext3. The ubuntu system boots more faster than it’s predecessor Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.10 using the latest kernel.

As for me , by using the latest kernel , the operating system will be more stable , less bugs and boots up more faster before.These are Ubuntu version of kernel that is used before:-

Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 – kernel 2.6.22-14

Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 – kernel 2.6.24-16

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10 – kernel 2.6.27-7

Ubuntu Jaunty Jackapole 9.04 – kernel 2.6.28-13 .

Ubuntu is used nowadays widely by people all over the world. It is rank no 1 in the world for the most widely used linux distribution , compare to Red Hat,Suse , Slackware , Debian and others. Thanks to Linus Torvalds and his kernel team , this latest kernel 2.6.28-13 or 2.6.28-7 will be used in one of the Ubuntu’s linux distribution. Some of the ealier kernel have bugs and Denial Of Service Attacks (DOS).Ubuntu user have to upgrade their ubuntu’s linux distribution to the latest one , and this including Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon , Hardy Heron and Intrepid Ibex.

My Red Hat Linux 9 Professional Edition uses the kernel 2.4.20-8 that is known to have bugs. It sometimes hang and freeze and output a kernel bug that resulted in kernel crash. The system is stable , but sometimes it hangs and crash. That what make me really sucks!!!But compare to me using Microsoft Windows , Microsoft Windows XP is common to crash and hang , and sometimes get corrupted compared to Red Hat 9. I think , through my experience , Red Hat 9 is more stable compared to Microsoft Windows XP.

By now , I am concentrating on working on linux kernel 2.4.xxx to write a kernel coding as a kernel developer or kernel programmer using C and C++. Thanks to Linux Foundation , I’m beginning to develop drivers for kernel 2.4.xxx and modify some of the Linux kernel coding. It’s one of my hobby and as to contribute to the Open Source Software or Community. This project is fully funded by me….and it’s a non-profit work.—Khairul—-

By the way , linux kernel 2.6.28-13 have its own bugs and it was found by the user. The Ubuntu Jaunty Jackapole sometimes hang when it boots up. I think this is a problem with it’s kernel.Please do check the Ubuntu security websites for more information and find a solution to it. Thanks —Khairul– —Khairul Azrin B. Azman—- (C)Copyright 2009
