Hitagi: The Build, After-Action Report

For some reason, I could not get the Asus motherboard’s audio working with Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy”, despite all my efforts, so I decided to go ahead and put 9.04 “Jaunty” on Hitagi, and what do you know?  It works great now.  I would rather have had an OS that would be supported for longer (Jaunty will be supported through October 2010, while Hardy will be supported until April 2011), but then again, if it doesn’t work with my hardware, those extra six months of support don’t mean much.

And I Name Her “Hitagi”

Posted by Doug on September 12, 2009

I’m planning on building a new computer.  If all goes well, it will be completed within the week.  I have decided to name the new computer “Hitagi”, after Senjōgahara Hitagi, the tsundere female lead from Bakemonogatari.
