Edgy Eft

Every morning this week has been met with a significant number of updates screaming for immediate installation and thanks to the handy updates manager, it hasn't been a chore. The reason, of course, for the glut of new packages and fixes is the release of Edgy Eft. The RC has been out for a week now and final release is upon us.

I've had no problems with the updates on my freshly installed desktop machine. I'll have to try a dist-upgrade on my backup server and see if it breaks!

Gnomebaker burnt!

It would appear that the default installation of GnomeBaker doesn't exactly "work".
apt-get install gnomebaker

While, this helpfully downloaded the aforementioned, installed it and created links to it in the Applications menu, trying to write a CD or DVD doesn't work. It would appear that there are some permissions errors and the app can't get access to the drive :o(. Running the app as root using sudo gnomebaker does work, but is hardly a workable solution in the long term!

I'll continue to browse the forum and blogs for some helpful hints, but at the moment, it seems to be: run it using sudo.
