Crystalbuntu 2.0
What are the main benefits we can expect from 2.0?

Do we need a new installer because of the new linux version or will this be realized via a normal update?

I need to do a complete reinstall because of some issues. So I wanted to ask if I should wait till 2.0.

RE: Crystalbuntu 2.0
New kernel. Supporting:

TV Adapters, new software, better performance.

New LTS base:

More package support, improved software.

Same support as current distribution.

There will be an upgrade mechanism from the current version, available at the command line.

RE: Crystalbuntu 2.0
Great work so far Sam! ...Really looking forward to Crystalbuntu 2.0 now

I know it's gonna be a big job moving over to 12.04, but my big wish-list item is definitely Dual boot
- Suspecting it'll make boot (and other stuff for those who have more than just xbmc on it) a lot faster
- Given I've now put in a decent amount of time adding new packages, it does worry me that a flash drive isn't the most resilient of storage soutions

Suspect you've got a number of ideas how to do it, but my thought on the simplest way might be...
- Shrink the existing partition on the internal ATV's disk, put a new parition in and install Crystalbuntu on it,
- OR (maybe less disruptive) I believe I've seen Linux using either a file or a portion of another OS's parition
- Then leave the default booting, etc to be atv-os, but have a bootable usb stick that's sole job is to point at Crystalbuntu. So usb stick in...boots crystalbuntu partition, take the stick out...boots atv-os
- Main reason behind thinking this is that presumably a LIRC enabled boot menu is pretty much impossible...

Some other things the upgrade to 12.04 will give should just give me out of the box
- support for my usb tv tuners
- presumably the 12.04 repos will be accessible, so I can install LXDE
- support for my webcam for skype

RE: Crystalbuntu 2.0
I can see that some people want new features like tv-tuners with pvr and whatnot. However, I don't need any of those features, so I hope new features won't come at the expense of performance and stability of the core functions (xbmc playback and library). Hoping the awesomeness will continue in 2.x Smile

I know this is an older post now, but LXDE works fine under Crystalbuntu as is. I was using it a lot myself.
