install ubuntu 9.10

Though ubuntu 10.04 is approaching, unluckily, I have to reinstall the ubuntu 9.10 these days.

Here is the notes after freshly install ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso. Almost command lines.

Lines with two “#” are comments. And lines with one “#” are actions with GUI instead of command lines.

#set the network connection
sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
#Menus, /System/Administration/SoftwareSources, and set the sources.
#Menus, /System/Administration/LanguageSupport, and set the language input menthod.
cd /etc/fonts/conf.d
sudo ln -sf ../conf.avail/66-wqy-zenhei-sharp-no13px.conf 66-wqy-zenhei-sharp.conf
cd ~
