Issues encountered

MoBo NIC

The on-board NIC (RTL 8111/8168B) is not supported by Intrepid's native desktop kernel. Considering to the age of Intrepid I decided to build a new 2.6.34.1 kernel according to http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu: How To Compile A Kernel - The Ubuntu Way.

installation MCE alpha-2

The installer started complaining it could not dld some packages which ik initially downloaded manually. At the third missing package I dived a bit deeper into it and added the line

  deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ intrepid lmce-alpha2-updates

to /etc/apt/source.list which was enough.
