I had trouble with Jolicloud too until i did an 'apt-get update'. Solved 
everything, which is weird since the repo packaged should be synced at 
install, but ho hum.

I must say that I am also impressed by the ease of 10.10. Despite the long 
download times at the weekend, I braved a distro upgrade from package-kit, (I 
used Kubuntu), and with the possible exception of having to tweak my plymouth 
settings, again, it went (touch wood) really well.  Usually I reboot into a 
command line because the upgrade borked my nVidia drivers. I'm classing it at 
a win for the ubuntu/kubuntu developers, good work you guys.

Now to more fun matters.  If there are any duke nukem 3d fans around, may I 
humbly suggest that you look for eduke32, and endevour to install it with the 
high res polymer packs, all I can say is "Hail to the king baby" lol.

anyway thats enough of my babble.
