Wow... installed on the ! I'll have to play around with it once cleanup is done...

An Ubuntu 18.04 software update just left my laptop unbootable. Does Ubuntu even test updates?

Trying to fix now... I hate computers...

Who here on SDF mentioned ? I've got it running on a laptop now (with a 8 daily build kernel), and it's a delight!

My 4000 system is clocking in literally 800 times slower than a Core 2 Duo laptop for sysbench's CPU benchmark. Ouch...

You can't even install setuptools in without support for IEEE-754 floating point... WTF?

I have 3.7 built on the finally after some manipulation of their tests.
