First look at Ubuntu Moblin Remix (UMR)

2009 October 23

Canonical and Dell delivered Ubuntu Moblin Remix Developer Edition on Dell Mini 10v and that was announced during the IDF (Intel Developer Forum).

I just got Dell Mini 10v a day before. I just downloaded the UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix) image from dell download section. Burn it on USB. Boot Dell Mini 10v with USB, and installation will start. This is Developer Edition so don’t expect that everything will work. Installation will erase all you previous data if you are trying on your existing machine. Dell is first OEM who ships pre-installed UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix). More information is available here about Installation.

Here is screen shots of UMR direct from Dell Mini 10v. Of-course i have just completed this post from UMR :)

    Currently people are porting Moblin UI on Ubuntu Core. So, don’t expect any fancy application and it’s developer edition.

    @ Suyog,

    Yes, it’s different from GNOME and KDE. Check http://www.moblin.org for more information.

    @ Suyog,

    Please check http://hardik.in/2009/07/01/reliance-netconnect-broadband-service-on-ubuntu-9-04-and-my-experience/ for more information. At later part of the post i have covered how to configure manually with “wvdial”. Also install “gnome-ppp”, then go to setup, press “Detect” button to detect modem, then enter you “username / password”, Dial number is “#777”. That’s it’s, same as wvdial but in GUI :)
