After having tried to install Kubuntu a load of times, I tried one more time. This time I actually got it installed, without the installer hanging and without errors on the DVD+RW.
All seemed fine. I was trying to work out how to get Firefox 1.5 RC2 to install, and where to install it. Then all of a sudden it decided that I wasn’t allowed to enter
Administrator Mode, which is necessary if you want to make any changes to the system settings. It asked for the password, but ignored it blankly on every try. And rebooting didn’t help either. I have tried reinstalling kcontrol as recommended in this thread at ubuntuforms.org, but to no use. I’ll maybe just wait to the next release and try again then. All this is (sadly) making me realize that even if Windows seems pretty unstable at times, the fact that it at least works most of the time isn’t such a bad thing.
