A while ago I posted some fixed ffmpeg and x264 packages for Ubuntu Jaunty (.deb) but you may want to upgrade to the latest version of ffmpeg and x264 (whichever the latest version is). So this how-to will explain how to install the latest FFmpeg and x264 and then how to always update those packages.
We already posted 2 solutions to help you with the Intel graphics driver in Ubuntu Jaunty and those 2 workarounds helped a lot of people:
I took these screenshots using a Kubuntu Intrepid Beta installation after performing a full dist-upgrade, at 1280x1024, with the nVIDIA 173 driver installed. I left all the settings in applications default, but I had to make fonts smaller and resize windows (in Konqueror for example), because they didn't look very well as default. The default theme used is Oxygen.
Although I'm a KDE fan, after the last Kubuntu release (8.04 - LTS) I was a little disappointed, so I decided to try Ubuntu 8.10, which is going to be the next release of this wonderful distribution, codenamed 'Intrepid Ibex'.
Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex is still under development now and scheduled will be released in 30 oct 2008. You can spread a simple banner from ubuntu with this code:
The Ubuntu project has made available an advance testing version of its popular Linux distribution, with the full 8.10, 'Intrepid Ibex' release scheduled to be released in October.
The Ubuntu developers are moving very quickly to bring you the latest and greatest software the Open Source community has to offer. With "Intrepid Ibex" Alpha 5 come some new features as well as lots of bug fixes.
There are only two months left for the new Ubuntu release to appear. I’ve decided to check out what is it that the Ubuntu developers have been preparing for us. Yet again, there are no huge, revolutionary changes, but some of them are really interesting. I’ve decided to write a few words about them.
The upcoming release of Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is highly anticipated not only for the system enhancements it will likely get, but also for its new default theme. The visual refresh is a long time coming, so I expect the Ubuntu artwork team is cooking something good for all of us.
On Saturday the first alpha release of Ubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid Ibex” was made available for download. So what’s new on the horizon for Ubuntu users?
The Hardy Heron has passed the torch to the Intrepid Ibex. The next iteration of the Ubuntu Linux distribution was made available Saturday. You can download the alpha release of Ubuntu version 8.10a from Ubuntu’s website.
