O Happy Day!!!!!! Thanks for all the work Jeff, and everyone else.

Any way to upgrade to stable by any chance? I have a number of friends with .6 installed after encouraging them, now I have a load of work to re-install the stable from scratch.

Excellent work, Jeff!

Now, I guess you will be updating the main site?

and

http://www.bodhilinu...m/download.html

Before I start, will dropping Nautilus mean Dropbox is going away?

0.7 works beautifully for me, and I am eager to try 1.0, but would like to keep Dropbox. What I have now is great, and I'd be happy to keep it if I can keep Dropbox that way!

Thanks for all your work!

I haven't done this myself, but understand this works.

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/pcmanfm /usr/bin/nautilus

If it works for you please let us know and/or post that under quick-fix/self fix.

Didn't work as written. I needed 'dist-upgrade' after the update.
Furthermore, the kernel is still 2.6.35.24, there was no bootsplash at reboot, and the error message at boot is still there.
Do I have to manually change any repositories to make this work?

If I want to get the complete 1.0.0 experience, I am sure I have to do a clean install. :(

That is done by default in the 1.0.0 install so dropbox works. I am building a bodhi-nautilus package that undoes this hack for those that want to still use nautilus after with 1.0.0 and dropbox.

People that installed prior to the 0.1.7 disc will need to upgrade a few of the visual things manually as 0.1.7 is the version where I added everything to be managed by the package manager.

Bad news - I really need to post this somewhere that sticks out in bright lights - running a dist-upgraded odds are will foobar your system and break many things in the Bodhi repo. dist-upgrade upgrades to the latest Ubuntu release, not the latest Bodhi release.

To install the new text boot splash on an older bodhi install, install the package
sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-text


To get the new kernel, install the pacakge linux-image-2.6.35-28-generic remember - Bodhi does not force kernel updates ever. We feel it is best to leave that sort of thing alone.

The upgrade went without error, and let me say that the bootsplash image is terrific. The only instruction you may want to tweak on your blog is that (for me, at least), I had to do apt-get update and apt-get upgrade as separate actions. Using && on a single command resulted in a message reporting "{foo} did not unlock. Are you root?" and then returning to the terminal prompt.

This may (or may not) have been because I did not have the latest 1.0.0-pre, but pre-2 or pre-1. People with that latest 1.0.0-pre may (or not) have the issue.

No issues with anything else, and I'm glad to see PCManFM at work.

Take a bow! And get some sleep -- you deserve it.

Mark

Added at edit: Not forcing kernel upgrades is the best policy ever. It's definitely an example of The Bodhi Way and should be publicized prominently as a feature on the home site since not every distribution gives the user a choice.

"Giving every user the power of choice." Not a bad slogan to use when describing Bodhi in addition to our flagship slogan. Which, by the way, is perfect in a laconic, Unixy way.

Perhaps even "Giving ever user the full power of choice" as an alternative take.

Again, kudos.
