Ubuntu Karmic Koala is here, time for a fresh install

Since my old Ubuntu lived a long live and saw numerous hacks, I chose to reinstall from scratch, here are the steps I took:

  1. install dotfiles
  2. Skype
  3. Multi-clipboard: sudo apt-get install glipper
  4. Application laucher: sudo apt-get install gnome-do + enable skype plugin
  5. Ruby enterprise
  6. Rubymine + Desktop icon+ Meta key for Rubymine
  7. Mysql: sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-ruby
  8. Apache:  sudo apt-get install apache2 apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-prefork-dev
  9. Passenger
  10. SSL for apache/passenger
  11. gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
  12. gems…
  13. Java: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
  14. Git: sudo apt-get install git-core

No more hacks, everything works, very fast startup (~10s), faster graphics (for intel chips) 😀
